    BFF Census Poll

    I'm retired from toting and fetching. I didn't see anything anywhere near "retired" as an option, so I put "homemaker" since I stay at home a lot.

    Is there a pic or link? I don't know which ones you are referring to. Same question. Is there a pic or link?

    Best Footprints

    I'm kinda new at this but I thought one of the best tracks ever came from down by Macon Ga??? I remember seeing that on one of the bigfoot shows years back.

    Great work Gigantor! I'm not sure we'd find similar results with deer in parts of the country where there are no elk. Deer are happier near a farmer's field than in thick mountains woods.

    Just curious what famous footprints do you consider the best evidence for the Yeti and Bigfoot ? For me it is Lord Hunts and of course the Patterson creature.

    Field trips 2.0

    I'm tired of looking at that cold, rainy, dark picture of Oregon in the slider. The pic below is not from a field trip, but I need some warm, sunny, beautiful beach... Longboat Key, Florida.

    Where Are The Sasquatches In The OP??

    So does it not make sense for a animal to take the fastest route possible and the shortest route as well. A point A to B route then to go around an obstacle in a animals mind. It would seem that the bear would rather risk the route of cutting across then wasting it's time going around. I know that in some places hunting I know that I have made some mistakes to cut across a field to get to some woods only to find out that it was swampy only to have to turn around . The problem is that you get to a point of no return that you have to go through with your decision. Maybe animals might have the same instincts where they do some thing and have to go through with what they decide.

    I wonder how many people see bears swimming across the arms and canals of Puget Sound. My bet is that it happens all the time, but few to nobody sees it. People never report bears swimming across Turnagain Arm south of Anchorage, and the mere thought of any living creature trying it sounds like suicide. The mud is like quicksand, and the tides are so incredibly ferocious that a bore tide is common. But after fitting a black bear that repeatedly got itself into trouble in Anchorage with a collar equipped with a satellite sender, ADFG was astounded to see that the bear promptly left town, swam across Turnagain Arm (instead of simply going around it), traversed Resurrection Pass, and the signal stopped along Skilak Lake Road. They drove to the site and found that the collar had been cut, meaning the bear had been shot and killed. The harvest had not been reported, which indicated that the “hunter” shot the bear illegally (no license or tag, which is free) even though it was a legal hunting area and black bear was open for hunting. A couple of years ago I myself saw a grizzly wandering around out on the mudflats of Turnagain Arm for the first time in my life, despite having traveled it countless times since 1975, including being a railroad track inspector there for a year.

    When was the last report of them swimming the Tacoma Narrows then?! Oh, that;s right, they can leave single prints, walk on water and come in from the the East such as JBLM (Lewis/McChord)--not denying JBLM is a hotspot and points further East in the Cascades.
  15. *sigh* need to address this. Faulty? Should be easy enough to check. Just produce the "missing" BFRO reports.

    Excuser moi, make that south and east or southeast, this easterner has his left coast gps on often!
  17. All that is demonstrably missing are PUBLISHED reports by BFRO. Everything else is assumption ... mostly faulty. MIB
  18. In addition to all of this is the NEON facility. It is set up to also sample DNA from the environment: https://www.neonscience.org/data-collection/dna-sequences Here is an interesting line (bolded) that caught my eye: "During observational sampling bouts of certain organisms, NEON field ecologists select a subset of aquatic and terrestrial organisms for generation of DNA sequence data and metadata. Many of the samples are also archived into the NEON biorepository. DNA analysis serves a number of purposes, including verification of taxonomy of specimens that do not receive expert identification, clarification of the taxonomy of rare or cryptic species, characterization of diversity using molecular markers, and functional gene characterization. These data are open access and discoverable through the NEON data portal. Does this mean that we researchers are way behind when it comes to finding a Sasquatch? hiflier, finally, Over.......and Out
  19. If it wasn'y for this recent topic coming up in my research I wouldn't be here. I really do need to take a break because for some reason my brain won't slow down. But I also need to explain why this thread even exists in the first place. It is because of what I perceive to be a link between fairly high powered concentrated high frequency deployment vs. the wildlife on the Peninsula. How far has my thinking taken this? It depends on how much one recalls from ALL of the details of the nesting sight of course but it was something BigTreeWalker said that began to connect the dots in odd ways. He mentioned that DNA from all kinds of things were evidently found at the nesting sight. Bear DNA of course was found but he wondered about the deer and elk DNA that seemed to be missing. When I came across this EW stuff and the apparent effects it has on wildlife it jumped out that as we all know bears have a great sense of smell. But deer and ELK have a great sense of hearing and I am not sure WHAT frequencies they are capable of detecting. Sasquatch supposedly have great hearing also. So I think you can see where this is going now. Sasquatch, deer, Elk, and anything else with hearing in ranges we know little about- ranges and sensitivity so amazing that they hear trail camera frequencies and the nearly inaudible to us clicks of the shutter then would it make sense that they detect EW? And if that is the case then would they be forced out of an area due to it being unpleasant to listen to. Or just plain foreign and so they become leery when it is deployed? Maybe none of this has any bearing at all but then again maybe it does in light of the 'empty nest' syndrome in Mason County and the reduced state of Class A's elsewhere in the region? And I do have to move on but needed to complete the thought. Mental loose ends are a pain in the butt.

    True Bipedalist, but I think we group them together because BF doesn't obey county borders...

    Right on the Pierce, Thurston being non-OP for sure; does not compute they are on the south, west or southwest side of the south Puget Sound in the Olympic rainshadow by and large contrary to Mason which but right up into the Olympic Crests and headwaters and Jefferson the same. Kitsap is another one of those peninsulas too.

    Now the noise level of jets landing and taking off can be a problem in area where these creature may be roaming. Hearing this noise I would say is very loud in area where it may echo. The reason I say this is because I use to sleep under the deck on a carrier where they did their touch and go's and it was loud but I was very tired and slept through it. But EW is no joke and when it is used in war the one on the other side knows it cause their bombs will just fall straight back down. what is talked on the net is best read then what can be spoken off. So is it possible that where there are military bases near by that noise levels might be a problem as well as the use of explosives. Could these training exercises be what is causing this decline in sightings. Is there a way to correlate between the frequency of military operations and the decline of sightings in a given area? if this could be done then this would give us a clue to why they have left that area. Also this would give us a clue to how they think. Should this not be what we should be looking for. A key into their mind on how they think so that we can solve what they are. This cannot go on for ever never to find out what the heck they are. Hiflier your mind is always on this and you have that drive to find out.

    Nice case, Sea Horse size 120. I have some. It is the first housing that Reconyx used for their Silent Image series of cameras. Full gasket and built in pressure relief vent. The housing is not very expensive. First that I have seen with a 'bark' pattern. Did you do the 'bark'?

    OMG, now I remember that incident with the film bite. Imagine that critter pulling it apart, biting it and then putting it all back. LOL, they are something else. On the other camera, did they roar or scream? Must have been quite a scene.
  25. Island, Thurston, and Pierce counties are not on the Olympic Peninsula. The sightings graph show a definite decline in the Olympic Peninsula proper since 2010 with just that one sighting back in Feb 2017 I mentioned being actually IN the OP. And I think the earlier one was only a vocalization. Shadowborn, thanks for the welcome but I am only back briefly because I thought that this information was so very important. Please read the links I posted as you will see that EW DOES affect ALL wildlife right down to amphibians. At first the U.S. Forestry service was not going to issue permits but they ended up doing so anyway. Good luck looking into this everyone. Seen any helicopters or low flying jets lately LOL? It is also important to understand that how much this stuff actually affects living things needs to be downplayed in order to get by a resistant public. And Yes, VAfooter the wavelengths in the graph show which frequency bands would be affected: Cell phones, blue tooth, WiFi and remote control boxes (I read that as being drone control devices) and some microwave frequencies as well so in effect no one would be able to talk to anyone or communicate in any way once the frequencies are widely jammed. This is what the bringing everyone into the digital age was all about. And just so no one thinks the government doesn't plan? This has been in the works for 50 years and started back when the first cable TV cables were strung in the major cities (1970 or so). But in the environment the effects go much deeper. DNA can be affected. It is all in the posted links. See everyone next year sometime. Have a safe and happy holiday season.

    I have some background in EW (although I am by no means an expert in any meaning of the word...); it is a highly interesting field that unfortunately is given less importance than it should. There are three parts to EW, and the area that I suspect you are referring to is what is commonly known as "jamming". Jamming in the simplest form, is just the prevention of a emitting electronic device from working properly. Jamming tries to keep a radar from being able to receive the signals that it sends out so that it cannot track the desired target. I highly doubt that EW is responsible for the lack of sightings. The airwaves are saturated with all kinds of non-EW signals 24 hours a day. I would think that if EW is affecting them, then some of the other signals would be as well. True, EW runs through numerous bandwidths, but a lot of them are on the higher frequencies and I doubt these can be detected by living creatures of any type. Here are some basic EW concepts if you are interested (most of you will not be...): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_warfare https://www.nutsvolts.com/magazine/article/radar_and_electronic_warfare_fundamentals http://falcon.blu3wolf.com/Docs/Electronic-Warfare-Fundamentals.pdf EW does not require the enemy emitters to be radiating in order to conduct jamming. As long as you know the type and frequency of the targeted emitter, a jammer can radiate continuously to prevent the targeted emitter from being able to do its job. The reason the Iraqis surrendered so easily is pretty simple. By the time that the ground offensive began, they have been pummeled from the air for more than a month, if I remember correctly. Constant and unannounced bombing tends to reduce one's willpower to resist. Also, the vast majority of the troops were conscripts and not well trained. They had no more desire to die for Mr. Hussein than you or I. So whenever they came into contact with allied forces, they were more than ready to surrender. Especially after having been bombed constantly for over a month. If you remember, the elite troops, the Republican Guard (which had better equipment, training, and discipline), did fight hard and well (at least to the extent they could given the overwhelming odds).
