  1. Glad to be in the final runnings for the contest! Good luck to the other two entries. you'll need it, i've gone by all local cemeteries to round up votes. It was an overwhelming response of support. 😆

  2. I'm thinking the Bumble(aka the Abominable snowman, kinda telling, eh?) from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is the first introduction a good many of us had to the world of giant furry hominids, one that laid a foundation of wonder at a seemingly terrifying being who later plays the role of the only one capable of a critical task. Also, am I the only one who thinks of Norseman whenever Yukon Cornelius comes on screen? In a good way of course! Merry Christimas and happy holidays to you all!

  3. Wow, this is amazing. Thank you so much to all of you who voted and participated - it's an honor to be a part of this group and I appreciate you so much. If I didn't get to come here and share it all with you, it wouldn't be half as much fun. Thank you to the BFF board and the donors who gave the finances to make this possible. Thank you so much for the recognition and the prize. I am thankful. To @Skinwalker13 and @BlackRockBigfoot, my thanks and may I wish you a most excellent next year out there in the field. To @NorthWind, you're a great friend and I love being out

  4. Its officially 2021 and im starting the year off right tomorrow A.M. and figured I what everyone else has planned for the new year. Or see if anyone wanted to share some goals for 2021 research year. Tomorrow im going to scout an area to place a Mic Tree that weve built. 6 Mics, multi directional, in a active area, crossed fingers. Ill be using a Zoom H5, and some nano cameras. Im also working on a few other prosthetic covers for some equipment that will help it blend into the species of tree I place it on. I'll also be scouting an area over the next few days looking for some fres

  5. I made my own, with built in low pass filters. This helps me record what I want, and filter out annoying bug noises. They need power though, so they run on a 9V battery, that also lasts a week. It's all explained in that audio sharing thread.

  6. I've only had the chance to see 3 different times when we've found handprints, but in every one of those, what was strikingly obvious was how dirty the hands were. If I had to categorize them, I'd say they were a very even mix of sand/dirt and maybe a fine amount of smaller particles. Here's a few pics from 2013 when I found our second set in late March while there to open the camper for the first weekend of the season. There were 3 prints: 1 left up high - 2 right prints mid and lower. My impression/opinion is that it came in to try and look into the camper sometime reasonably close in time

  7. My son and our friend have started a business together. Selkirk Outfitters Right now they are a custom fab shop. But are gearing up to focus on overlanding. Their current project is building a aluminum flatbed for a Toyota Hilux that used to be a Tokyo fire truck. The customer is a long range shooter that travels to competitions. They have also built custom bumpers for people. As well as boat tops. My 2013 Dodge Ram 3500 is next on the list! If you have a project your thinking about for getting deep into the back woods?

But I owe a huge debt of gratitude to @Madison5716for her dedication and her amazing attitude through all the baloney that made up 2020. Wow, and thank you is all I can say right now.

  9. Thanks for the free entertainment. On a serious note I have thoroughly enjoyed this entire process. Everyone did a great job presenting their evidence. I must also commend all of you. When I joined this forum over 10 years ago I expected to quickly lurk and move along. I have learned a lot since then and continue to enjoy what is presented here. You are genuine dedicated people who follow the evidence and more importantly your heart. I of course don't believe a word of it.

  10. This is a photo from the areas in which I hunt, in an area with historical sightings and myths reaching back centuries, and not far from another area where a buddy saw what can only be described as a bigfoot while spring turkey hunting. It stalked within a few yards of him as he called turkey, and when he moved, it stood up and strode off with nary a sound. There's nothing to the photos other than a field of trees. Ain't they pretty? The tree I'm sitting in has been productive for me over the last 4 years, with a deer a year taken from it, and another dozen a year seen from it, so it's my favo

  14. There might be a kid out there somewhere who sees EB and has his lifelong interest in the subject kindled... just like In Search Of and MonsterQuest did for a lot of us when we were younger. Maybe that kid will be the one who grows up and finally solves the Bigfoot mystery once and for all. As long as it doesn't make the search for Sasquatch out to be a laughingstock, then the show has some value.

  15. Hello to anyone who is interested in my research! I guess I caused quite a stir in the contest forum. My apologies for creating a logjam. It was recommended that this might be a more appropriate section for that kind of discussion. If this isn't the place, please let me know. I am a complete novice to how forums work. Who Am I? I am a professional archaeologist who has surveyed hundreds of thousands of acres of national forests, national park lands, national wildlife refuges, state forests, and other federal, state, local and private lands from New Yor

  16. Marty, While I can sympathize with your frustration concerning lack of clear video, like Norseman said it's apples and oranges to compare ghost hunting techniques with those of most Bigfoot researchers. For a few reasons... You are dealing with video and audio which are orders of magnitude more complex than investigating a potentially haunted house. How long is your average ghost hunt? 6 hours or so? Usually indoors, I would assume. Ceilings, walls, mostly level floors. Maybe even power, if you are lucky. Vehicles parked just right outside.

  17. Congratulations Madison and Northwind. You deserved first prize and all the accolades that go with it. This wasn't handed to you--you went out and did it the old fashion way--you earned it. Days and weekends of the never-ending pursuit some of us call sasquatching. I'm sure there were times when you thought your discovery was right around the bend...and didn't find it. And there were other times when you least expected it, and were ready to give up, it came to you. We're all proud of both of you for who you are as people and for what you've done.

He does make me laugh when it's raining so hard that the water is dripping off my nose and the mud is over my boots and I'm fearful for my 21 year old truck hauling ass up a logging road. We're a good team and I wouldn't have it any other way.

  19. I don't know if the program has been mentioned previously, but I watched a program tonight on Amazon titled "Track: Search for Australia's Bigfoot". It's about the search for the Yowie and it's not about a bunch of knuckleheads in the outback looking for the big hairy guy. It was filmed in the Blue Mountains predominately and is interesting. It's only 57" long but it's a well done program.

  20. I'm going to say that hiding tracks is at least partially instinctive. I catch myself doing it subconsciously .. stepping across trails rather than in them when I intersect them. I also notice that I will instinctively step behind a tree when a helicopter or airplane goes over somewhat low. I do not know why I do those things, I just do them. Once you notice a previously instinctive behavior, then you respond to it by either deliberately not doing it anymore or by deliberately taking it up a notch or two, but you don't truly ignore it: that which as been seen cannot return to being

  22. Since you can't prove the creature is mythological why use the term? Though you may think its use as being somehow necessary, I see it as an unnecessary disrespect to the Forum. You can have a nice conversation and get still your point across without the unveiled sharp stick.

  27. Noting they said they had identified an area of 75,000 acres, I went to Google Earth and arbitrarily created a 75,000 acre perimeter within which I would look that had the original coordinates near the perimeter line. We all have our methods to search for areas we'd like to look at more carefully. Me--I focus a lot on water sources and especially those sources that have quick access to elevation gain. Remote ponds not easily accessible, marshy areas, or creeks off the beaten path. I also prefer to have an area of interest be at least two miles from the nearest house. There was not one area

Cumberland KY. That ridge is the border of Letcher and Harlan Counties in Kingdom Come State Park. 36.997550, -82.984460 There are 12 SSR entries for Harlan and Letcher Counties combined. That's 12 more than the county they were at in Oregon.

  30. NorthWind and I qent out today (January 2, 2021) to a very squatchy place where we've had past activity, and spent an afternoon in the woods. We worked on some bushcraft skills - i set up my tarp and cut some firewood with my Silky saw (though we didn't start a fire, but used the stove instead). He worked on creating a bow drill. We didn't get any activity that we know of, but it was an awesome time in the woods. Happy new year, everyone!

  31. Bob Barhite is a friend of mine, and he has run good expeditions that I have attended. I'm not sure they can have the same good experiences as his expeditions in Iowa or Wisconsin have provided, but they do a good job of scouting areas beforehand. In Minnesota, you are very likely to run into many of my friends and you will enjoy the experience. I recommend it if you have not done one. I am unlikely to do official BFRO expeds anymore because of the non-disclosure agreement. I want to be able to share location, should I have more encounters.

  33. Hoping everyone had a great Christmas, and wishing you a Happy New Year! Exciting news for me....an old family friend finally came clean with some Hairyman activity. His family has a 4000 acre ranch, been in their family a long time, lotta hardwoods, no hunting, and set up as a private natural reserve. Anyway, they have Elk on the property and a few of the males die each year during the rut from fighting, dead on the ground one day, gone the next.....no trace or drag marks, clearly being carried off. My buddy went out at dusk recently to inspect a dead Elk, he just wants to be sure

  34. Wife and I took a walk to go check out a potential hunting area in George Washington Nat'l Forest. Mostly just a chance to get out, scout out the layout of the land, check for animal sign, etc. Wanted to get an opinion on what we saw. My wife noted red berries along the trail, but did not see anything that resembled a berry bush. We then noted some branch breaks right at the water's edge. The area does have beaver, whitetail, and black bear present. BRFO also turns up several reports in the area. No tracks found and the branch breaks look older but that would make sense to me as ri

  41. This statement I have also found to be true and I still don't understand it. Most of the field researchers use their own money on their own time and often get shamed when they ask for donations. There is also a need for many different skill sets in the field which either requires a unique individual or a team all focusing on the same goal. Without grants, these field researchers or teams still need to earn a living. I have found merit in anything that mentions the name Bigfoot or Sasquatch. As social media brings stories together, even from a hundred years ago, a consens

  42. Indeed it is, Believer57, and for the time that I have been here I still have questions although for me the picture has seemingly take on the luster of a level of malfeasance where Sasquatch discovery is concerned. Generally speaking, IMHO there is something logically "off" about the whole discovery/proof aspect regarding the creature's reality. Not that it isn't real mind you, and I have my reasons for saying as much even without a personal encounter of my own. It's goes more to who knows about the Sasquatch vs. who would be hurt most by public knowledge of its existence. I'm sure in your tra

  44. Yes, and the biggest breakthrough was being able to find and identify the alphas. They are easy to spot since they are the ones giving orders to the minion Bigfoots. There is also a BF command center that leverages the Space Force to acquire satellite imaging feeds for real time 24-7-365 monitoring. There is a small but highly trained team of remote viewers to supplement a well equipped and fantastically funded strike force ready to go - anywhere, anytime. It is SOP when someone goes missing in the woods and the government wants to cover all the possible angles with search & rescue. There

  45. I was a lurker here for a few years. My first introduction to Sasquatch was as a 4-5th grader. One of my older brothers had a yellow paperback book about Bigfoot. For the last 16 years or so my interest went crazy even more. The only people I know who had an encounter was my 2nd ex wife and her family. It was 1976 or 1977 when her dad was driving to Louisiana to see an old Air Force buddy. They said it was late probably close to 10-11pm cause they had stopped to eat a couple of hours earlier for dinner. This was close to Beaumont, Texas. Her dad was driving, mom was riding shotgun, oldes
