    Prevention is better than cure. Don't venture into a squatchy area with a used tampon in the first place

    Searching For Bigfoot in Oregon

    Mrs. Huntster and I were just watching your YouTube video, and she really enjoyed your bed joke.

    Freeze dried food / MRE's

    I bought a tub of Wise off Amazon...... never again.🤢 Mountain house or Backpacker’s pantry for me. I also do canned stuff.

    Breeding season for these creatures

    I know that primate's generally don't have a keenly developed sense of smell compared to other animals and lack a particular sense organ that picks up on pheromones. They think that the development of color vision lead to the loss of pheromones. Gorillas use a musk to warn off potential competition, but are there primates that actually use pheromones in mate selection? Not more subtle social odors, but straight up pheromones? Like Norseman said, primates don't have mating seasons, and like I mentioned before, primates use their vision for arousal and mate selection. No way to lure one in by appealing to their mating urges without crossing over into the absurd or the flat out gross. Feeding, fighting, fleeing, or.... fornicating. Those are the primal drives. Feeding or fighting might be the way to draw them in.
  7. I’m curious about what the man on the Expedition Bigfoot show about the child like giggles in the woods and how Sasquatch could make these sounds. I have actually heard this in woods around the dusk and dawn hours in a place that i and others have had encounters with what could only by this elusive fella. Anyone else have any experience with this?
  8. Daleywoodbeater, the lesson I learned is to pick your trees wisely. Ones with thick enough branches to support you, but not thick enough to support a big foot. Also one tall enough it can't reach you by jumping and one big enough in diameter it can't push it over. Though, it might take a while to find such a tree, especially with a sasquatch hot on your heels, when you do, get up it as fast as you can.

    Freeze dried food / MRE's

    Mountain House is still the gold standard for me. Some Backpacker's Pantry is ok. Wise tastes like chemicals. I have never had the hoity toity ones like Alpine Air, because I don't eat stuff like Himalayan Lentils and Rice or Mexican Quinoa Souffle at home, so I don't eat it in the woods. I have never had a Mountain House that I didn't enjoy. I am taking turkey and dressing, chicken fajitas, and lasagna out this weekend. As far as MREs go...you can't buy actual military issued meals. As far as civilian MREs, get them from TheReadyStore.com. They carry A-Pack meals, which are pretty good. Sopackco is ok as well. Just store them in a cool and dark place. They will last forever, but the right temperature will maintain the flavor and consistency. I will tell you that MRE pound cakes are like crack. The carrot cake and spice cake are amazing. You want to go down the MRE rabbit hole and end up losing hours of your life, check out this guy.. "Let's get this out on a tray. Nice." 8 hours later you will be watching him eat field rations from wars that you have never heard of, fought by countries that you didn't even know existed.
  10. Thanks all for the replies be it funny or serious as this is the only way to approach this subject to me as some have trouble believing and others scoff at me because i believe. ona another note if one could find a way to lure one in with this technique the animals attention would be on the scent and not the individual hiding away for the rouse, anyway thanks for welcoming me to this site and happy hunting.

    Freeze dried food / MRE's

    Way back last millenium when the Dead Sea was only sick, I used to do a fair bit of backpacking, mountaineering, ice climbing, etc. Haven't done that stuff for years, but was thinking it would be nice to have a meal or two stored in my pack for emergencies aside from my usual Payday bars and occasional beef jerky. Back then, freeze dried food wasn't very good, but it did the job f filling the void until one could get back in town and score a good steak, burger or pizza. Does anyone have any recent experiences with some of the freeze dried stuff these days? If so, what's good? Back in my day, Mountain House and Richmoor were the only games in town. Now I notice many more, but since they are expensive, I don't want to try them all just to find out I hate some. I've heard good reviews on MH Biscuits and Gravy. Then, there are MRE's. I wouldn't be carrying these in my pack because of the weight, but it would be nice to have a case or two socked away. Easy to toss into the truck for an "emergency I need to get out of town and go camping" trip. Recommended brands or entrees? Ones to avoid?

    As an amateur herp at one time, my grateful acknowledgement for not summarily dispatching the timber rattler. Certainly best admired from a safe distance.

    Dammit, BRB. That was good alcohol thru my nostrils!

    Weaving/Interlocking Wood

    Yes, many times. It's bent when young/green. But that's not always when we find it, so then it's old. Twists we found last fall, old then, are almost fragile now.
  16. I am just waiting for someone with Hollywood quality digital image capabilities foists a digital hoax BF on us. If done well enough it may be impossible to detect it as a fabrication. Some of the dinosaur renderings are incredible. The same applies to audio. While we know what a dinosaur supposedly looks like, I wouild imagine that most of the real sounds produced by BF are unknown to man. So some clever person could have us all hoaxed out. A worst case scenario would be if BF went extinct before accepted by science. That way we would never know what one really looks like before the undetectable hoaxes are produced. It is only recently that science discovered that most dinosaurs were covered by feathers. They were thought to look like big leathery lizards before that.

    Kandahar giant

    Hard to believe and since it involved the USG, no way to confirm. A couple of other threads on it: https://www.thexplan.net/article/378/The-Giant-of-Kandahar-And-The-Lost-Race-Of-The-Nephilim/it From Snopes: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/u-s-special-forces-killed-a-giant-in-kandahar/

    I love this story. I can't remember if it was Steve Quayle or L.A. Marzulli who told it first.

    Yeah. That if Plan A involves you tying a pheromone chip and a used tampon to your belt, skip directly to Plan B.

    I feel there's a very important lesson to be learned here.

    Height exaggeration?

    Cryptozoology A to Z has a brief article about the True Giants. Conceptually, this is something other than an "normal" Sasquatch that is much taller..and explains of the truly gigantic reports. I personally lean toward the idea that those 14-15 foot tall estimates are exaggerations from the speed, shock and fearful nature of a sighting... but I could be wrong. Won't learn more if I don't keep an open mind.

    Height exaggeration?

    I'm a hunter, lifelong, somewhat rabid. Judging size in the field is hard. You can be off just by being wrong about distance, and if you see something really big, you are likely to assume it is something smaller closer. For frequently encountered game animals we have cues from the critter itself. Look at a buck's antler width compared to its ear tip width. Look at a bear's ear size and location on the skull. And so on. Those come with familiarity, familiarity we don't have with bigfoot. I've played that game with myself ... ask myself, "self, in this setting here, how big is 10 feet tall? What does it look like?" Unless the distance is fairly short, 10 feet isn't ginormous looking. My first sighting where I had depth of the water as a solid yardstick gives a reliable height. The BF ducking under the branch that was later measured gives a reliable height. Another friend had a sighting of a BF he put at 6-1/2 feet. We measured it at 74 feet distance later using my laser rangefinder. It doesn't happen every time, or even most times. When we do get a chance to take a real measurement rather than just offering an estimate we should take advantage of the opportunity to do so. I agree. I read somewhere that the early Canadian researchers were not convinced the Northern California -type tracks were real because they were proportionally wider than what the Canadians were used to. (I'd love to have Thomas Steenberg comment on that.) Those 24-1/2 inch tracks I found were comparatively narrow, about 8-1/2 inches at the ball of the foot and about 6 inches at the heel, didn't have as much taper as some of the CA tracks, and they were very slightly curved .. not an arch, but a curve. That, along with the reports of 2 slightly different types, roughly the same size, but with one more muscle-bound looking and having more ape-ish facial features, the other quite bulky but slightly smoother with more human facial features (and more human-like speech) make me wonder if there isn't something to the hybridization notion. If the process were not complete, the DNA not mixed throughout the population evenly yet, then you might well expect to see that level of variation. If the big dude I saw was a wanderer from a parent population in Canada, it could be normal for there but abnormal for SW Oregon where I saw it. We know little. We need to do good science before we treat something as truth ... but we remain free to ponder possibilities. We should encourage that pondering so long as it does not take on the mantle of dogma without substantiation. MIB
