  1. Today
  2. Instead of starting numerous general threads with basic questions regarding videos from your ytube channel, perhaps consider a dedicated archive thread in the Video forum.
  3. I'm not of the mind that Sasquatch is a construct of the human mind. As researchers I do however think that it's important to at least listen to the views of others whether or not we agree with them. Back in 1978 the first ever Bigfoot/Sasquatch Conference was held. Here are some excerpts from the Conference which feature the opinions of those who believe that Sasquatch is merely a human construct. Thoughts? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3VaqNJMGgA

    Knife Thread...It's about time.

    I took a small piece of exposed film leader from a strip of negatives and cut a circle, took off the rubber eyepiece and stuck it in behind the rubber for the same reason. Works great and does save my night vision since there is no way to dim the internal display like you can with the FLIR TK.

    I will try. I have a lot going on this weekend, but will see what I can do.

    Post up some pics of the binoculars and a few stills of the night vision footage if you get a chance. These look cool.

    e-DNA Sampling For Sasquatch

    More than ANYONE has to play with. And since detecting Sasquatch DNA in the wild is so dependent on activity I think we can do better by going the route we've been talking about. Just secure a definite testing facility and get our water/soil samples on the cheap to the best of our ability. In a while I'll try to post a breakdown on cost from one place I've been looking at. My hope is that once a lab is initially set up for testing our samples then the cost of repeating the tests for each sample will be reasonable. Man, would I ever like to find somewhere in academia that would run samples for nothing, or at least next to nothing. If funding is a problem then mayby something can be worked out regarding some kind of privately funded situation. I think that it would still be cheaper even if some kind of funding agreement could be reached? I mean, how do OTHER people do this sort of thing as an extended research effort without ending up in the poor house? Wally Hersom.....where are you?

    FINALLY received these. They were on a slow boat from China. I was getting kind of worried, I thought maybe they caught the corona and were in some hospital somewhere. Anyway, I took them out in the back yard, and could easily see treetops in the park which are over hundred yards away, as well as being able to see everything clearly closer in than that. No humanly visible light emitted save for the viewing display, which is quite bright. I may cut a piece of red gel to soften that light a bit and save my eyes' natural night vision. But they seemed to record and zoom in and out well, considering the price. I Still need to take them out to the field, though, for better and more in depth testing. Sorry to pollute the knife thread with this. A good 4th of July weekend to all.

    e-DNA Sampling For Sasquatch

    OK, I went ahead and registered "for science." The cost of that kit is $659. More than I have to play with, for sure.
  10. Even though you cannot enter, you are the early leader....
  11. I don't know, I wish it were one of our trail cameras that captured it instead of a sound recorder.
  12. Gigantor...great audios. The first audio has two wood knocks as clear as day (or night as the case may be). The second one had a very loud branch break, a knock, and then either taps on wood or footsteps. What do you think they were?
  13. I agree that tree weighs much more than a couple hundred pounds.
  14. God bless him he’s so beautiful!!
  15. To break the ice, I'm going to set the bar pretty low by posting two recordings WV Footer and I got in West Virginia. We had three recorders in the woods for the whole summer. Hiflier spent days listening to the recordings and found these. Note:. I am not claiming BF made the sounds we recorded, but it could be. Also, I am not entering the contest because I am in the forum management team. Knocks With One Loud One - amped.mp3 brach-break-knock.mp3

    Who To Learn From

    That’s a great point MIB. Environment and others factors are going to effect the behavior of these creatures. Are they here for food? Is this a nesting site? Are they just passing thru? What is their territorial stake? All could determine how, and how often they respond or react to stimuli. The more intelligent they are the more these factors become thought out vs. instinct. The more or less they can be predicted.
  17. I’m looking forward to this. Very interring WI!
  18. Congratulations, w. And look forward to the "crazy". The crazier the better Be safe. Don't forget your snake stick.

    BFF Researcher of the Year Contest - Win $1500

    Can't wait to see your footage. We haven't seen any rattlesnakes this year, but copperheads are bad.
  20. A buddy and I retrieved three trail cams today and I got something on video that is crazy. It's in an area that is a honey hole, way off trail, where I've had multiple wood knocks, footprints, and more. I have to get my friend to come back out with me and do a re-enactment to gauge size. Thankfully, the trail cam has both a day-time video that shows the normal backdrop and this night-time video, from the same spot, where things happen that has me scratching my head. He's less than eager to go back because, on the way out today, he almost got nailed (within an inch or two) by the largest timber rattler I've ever seen. It's been a wild ride today. I'm eager to post both videos but will wait pending further on-site analysis and confirmation of size.

    Who To Learn From

    's ok. The behavior really does seem to vary regionally. I would say the more crowded they are for space, cover, water, or food resources, the seemingly more "pushy" they are. In my area that mostly isn't a thing. The water is as good in the next creek as in this one, same for cover, food sources, etc, so it is not worth the risk of a hostile encounter with humans. Other places, like Arizona and New Mexico seem to report more assertive behavior. Likewise in the south though I don't understand that as much. That is not to say there are no places where they get pushy in the Pac NW. I've heard a good bit about that sort of thing in the upper CLackamas / Mollala areas. If it were about 4-5 hours closer I'd go see for myself. The other component of behavior is the demographics of the witness. MIB

    e-DNA Sampling For Sasquatch

    I have mentioned that NOTCH2NL assays are available for detecting the three target variations A, B and C. This particular product comes as a well plate with 96 wells coated with antibodies for detecting the three different gene copies. And it is specific to Homo Sapiens: https://www.biocompare.com/25138-Assay-Kit/11949560-NOTCH2NL-ELISA-Kit-Human-OKCD01101/?pda=9956|11949560_0_0||1|NOTCH2NLB Cost? Dunno without creating an account. But a lab could get that info and the cost would be zero if it happened to be a university lab. A private lab is probably a facility that we have some control over because of the money situation. A university? Probably not. The main point here is that there are already products in existence that can test both for Great Apes as well as Humans. This very point has been brought out in my email program to various scientists. Mainly to emphasize that the assays used in testing for primates already exist so there would be no need to design any from scratch.

  24. I know this was from 2019, but did you go? How was it? Worthwhile? Did anybody attend 2020? I may put this one and the Great Smoky Mountain Bigfoot conference on my calendar for 2021.

    Okay, here's the file for soil sampling: Soil Sampling.pdf
  26. He churns out a book a month, or so it seems. Quantity over quality. I don't know if that pays the bills or if he works another job. You know where the big money is, right? Bigfoot erotica.

    e-DNA Sampling For Sasquatch

    Sounds good. What's say we see how the cost is going to play out and make sure we get the samples in a way that the lab can use. Like I said, there are still unanswered questions and so the most important thing would be to keep the channel open to the lab and hope they look at this as a serious inquiry. I'm hoping the follow up email that I sent will demonstrate that. It would be handy to bring in the article on soil sampling procedures here, so I will do just that
