    Bigfoot Timeline 1990-2020

    Seems to me that many of those date differences are due to recent reporting of encounters that occurred many years ago, not a lag in investigation and publication, although that is also clearly a regular publication fact. It seems rare that a report is published less than a year after the event. That's understandable. I'm also pretty sure that some events/encounters simply don't get published because they might be ongoing.

    From what I've heard, reports and tracks of juveniles.

    Bigfoot Timeline 1990-2020

    I don't think it is possible to deduce anything based on report numbers. There are simply too many moving parts. Social media has fostered the formation of MANY small, local groups and individuals so you don't have to go to the big names that publish reports anymore to talk to someone and you don't have to face the interrogation that was characteristic of BFRO when I made my report. It is more socially acceptable now, too, to talk about bigfoot so there are likely fewer people who report just to have a sanity check. Moreover ... go to BFRO's site and look at the recently published reports list, look at the dates. Now, think about that chart previously shown. It simply takes some amount of time for reports to be investigated and published, so the recent gap may show nothing about reports, only about investigation and publication. We have to wait 10 years to see what has been published about now to know about the number of reports now. May not be what you want to hear, but it is truth. Deal with truth or deal with wishful thinking. It's up to you. MIB

    As one who believes that sasquatches are on the road to extinction, and have been for at least the past 500 years, I also believe that their numbers might be increasing in some regions. For example, I am fully convinced that their numbers have decreased dramatically over the past 175 years in what was likely their best habitat (northwest California, western Oregon, and western Washington), but have been more stable or maybe even grown in British Columbia, Alberta, and Yukon, and Ontario.

    I’d guess due to certain researchers close to the subject with the most current data have gone silent and that includes interacting with public databases and forums. Results in less “public” reporting. At least in regards to published info/reports. As to why they would be growing in population, probably just better identification of habits and habitat that get researchers closer to the being itself, or signs of the being.

    I wonder what they're basing that on.

    Some researchers I follow think their numbers are actually increasing in some regions. What you observe in the data is likely the effect of the rise of social media, decentralizing reporting. Likewise, IMO the '10s have been increasingly about independent folks gathering boatloads of information about BFs, DIY style.

    ^^^^^ Interesting that post got a down vote despite being accurate. The BFRO database is a critical database, but it by no means is scientifically based, complete, or can make any claims of accuracy. It is just one of the best available. Even the FBI crime statistics are faulty, and are condemned on a regular basis, and that database is compiled as completely as possible, well funded, and participated in with near complete law enforcement agency participation nation wide. Until government begins compiling a database under similar terms as all its other databases, we're stuck with private efforts, which are private. The owners build them, maintain them, provide access to them, etc under their own terms.

    I believe that a few years or never in some cases is more accurate. Because of my experience I would not even call what BFRO has a data base.

    I could be wrong... @BobbyO says that reports take a few years to get posted on the BFRO site, I don't know.

    Trail Cam Bigfoot Pics

    MK Davis does some good stuff, and stuff that make me wonder how he could have reached such an odd conclusion. I tend to think that the fence climber video is a Sasquatch, not a fake. It has to be one or the other, since it is not ambiguous in that regard.

    Madison. It was a joke. Cliff. And we were finding bigfoot. (sigh) Lol Love ya anyway, friend. Just checking to see if anyone is actually awake.

    Edited. Haha, you posted a "wow, that's a pretty creek" picture and I didn't! FWIW, I LOVE every bit of water - and I stop the truck and jump out to take too many pix, lol! Also, I didn't realize we were at a Finding Bigfoot location? Is that because of Tobe?

    Hmmm, it does take a human reporting a sighting to have a sighting!

    The internet me thinks. I wonder what the curve would look like if the internet were available in the 70s and 80s.

    Why the big bump from 95-15? Shouldn’t the graph just slowly drop in numbers as it comes forward in time if we were watching an extinction?

    I thought I would add a couple of photos as well. One of the many beautiful creeks. The swamp. Cliff from Finding Bigfoot What we first thought was a figure, but was likely just a stumpsquatch. Very distant...but it was still there some 15 to 20 minutes later. Zoom in, silhouetted on the ridge near the center.

    Me too. Unfortunately, I think BF is on a path to extinction.

    Update on Olympic Project nest sites

    Page 131, The Nature of the Beast: Dr. Melton's webpage: http://mitotyping.com There's more: Sykes used Dr. Melton's lab for all the hair extractions on the yeti sampls, which of course, were submitted by others, not collected by himself. This was done for much the same reasons that Ketchum used various labs instead of her own for the peer review process. Sykes also consulted with Dr. Henner Farenbach, who has studied sasquatch hair extensively, and who cheerfully submitted samples himself to Sykes for analysis.

    5.31.20 Video - Scouting the Swamp. It's so pretty!

    According to Meldrum, he believes BF hair does not contain a medulla. Sykes seems to be ignoring the fact that if a hair does not contain a medulla, it will not contain DNA. He should know that! Without the medulla, unless a hair has been pulled out, and has tissue attached to the roots, there is no DNA associated with the hair. Could it be that Sykes assumes all suspected BF hair is really a bear? Sometimes I wonder what game he is playing.

    Searching For Bigfoot in Oregon

    Date & Time - 5.31.20 from 11am until 4pm. Weather - 60°F, sunshine Location - Oregon Cascades What Happened - NorthWind and I scouted a new location, about 10 miles north of the Charmed Lake area. Friends of ours have had dramatic sasquatch encounters in there. It is closed all winter due to snow, falling trees and miserable road conditions. We were excited to be able to explore it during a beautiful spring day. NorthWind saw something big and brown on the shore of the swamp, but when we were able to get closer via the road, there was nothing to be seen anymore. He also found a very curious twisted branch, which didn't look like a naturally broken branch. This will definitely be an area that we will return to for research. We then explored some back roads on the other side of the Charmed Lake.

    Update on Olympic Project nest sites

    The argument for it being a cow was disputed because they claimed the cow would have to have been airborne to be that high in the image. That is where the flying cow term was coined. The FLIR thing has always been problematic to me. Other than something possibly bipedal in a FLIR picture there is not much that can be learned from FLIR because of the poor resolution that most privately owned FLIR cameras have. Most of the time you cannot even tell if it is a human or BF. I have always been an advocate for using UV with an illuminator. Most cameras with visible light capabilities can be modified to use UV light. A visible light camera has many times better resolution than the best FLIR cameras. Recently I got a UV LED lamp to sterilize food packages and kill COVID virus. The lamp produces 30 times the UV that the sun does. That means anything dozens of yards from the lamp would be visible in a UV picture. Of course you need to have protective glasses and protect your skin from a really bad sunburn.

    It’ll be interesting for sure but something I’ll just peek at every now and then. Like all history of mans evolution it’ll be changing daily, weekly, monthly etc. as we continue to learn more.
