  1. Most of my field trips tend to be work related, but at least it takes me to some pretty cool and occasionally remote locations in northern BC. This is between Bob Quinn and Bell 2, BC, roughly 100 miles due east of Wrangell, AK. So many bears here, typically seeing 7-10 black bears a day and a handful of grizzlies over the shift. Closest reported sighting to here is this - from 2 years ago and about 100 miles south: https://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=65630 Very few people in this country and most places on the map aren't even towns, just gas stations/

  2. I actually have quite a bit of Bigfoot/Sasquatch related figurines and such. Taken about a decade to amass this collection. Not everything is pictured. Have a while bunch of digital books. Have some physical books too (used to have more, but sold a lot, thinking of selling the rest). And there's a few other things that are sitting in a box in the laundry room because I don't have space for them right now. Part 1... Part 2. While I love it all, the last statue pictured is probably my prized piece...

  3. Here's a shot of Mt. Baker taken from my patio at 8:20 this evening, and a little story about my first drive up the mountain back about 1964. Myself, my new bride, and another young newlywed couple made our first trip up Baker in my '49 Ford, at about this time of year. The drive to the resort was interesting, with great scenery, and lots of snow alongside the road at the higher elevations. After a lunch and making snow angels, we started back down the very twisty road, following a green VW beetle. At the 3rd or 4th hairpin turn, the VW hit an icy patch, spun 360 degrees, and punch

  4. If this was the case then this would make Bigfoot ape. We be beating on our chest and have one on a slab with no problem. So i have to disagree with this. When they came to our camp back in 2000 and back in 2001 they came because they wanted too. Not because they were drawn in by methods being used that we have no understanding of there meanings. Even when we did use these methods there was no aggressive behavior. The only time that there was aggressive behavior by them was when they were being shot at. This only happened after we had left our camp site. This has been posted on the BFF back

  6. Went out yesterday in one of my areas of interest. It has rained a fair amount lately including early yesterday morning when I entered the woods. The mosquitoes were swarming and nearly impossible not to be ravaged by them. The rain caused creeks and bogs to expand providing a good opportunity to look for prints. No luck but tomorrow is another day.

  7. Oh, I won't sugarcoat it at all... Let's go point by point. "Ah, I see. Leave everything up to one person. Make sure they stay isolated and without any help from the community." What am I leaving up to one person? I am supposed to stop my own pursuits in the interest of furthering yours and Wooly's? Let's pursue this avenue for a moment. What is your pursuit, exactly? Because I see vague statements made, with no concrete plans for whatever you guys want to be accomplished. What are you wanting to do, exactly? A letter writing campaign? What is the address

  8. BRB, kindly know that you're doing what few people can or would do. You are dedicated to the task at hand and are tenacious in that pursuit. You're going up and over mountains with a heavy backpack when you could be home staring at a computer screen while nibbling on a cookie. You're fording streams and enduring rain storms when you could be home and have your feet up reading a book about sasquatch. You're trying to stay warm on cold nights in front of a fire while you could be home and simply turn up the thermostat. You're sleeping in a small tent, on a small air mattress, warmed only by the

  10. Headed pretty far East in Idaho today with my dad and brother on an ATV ride to check out new elk hunting territory. Went to an area called Jackson Mountain. Some elk sign, but more moose sign, and really fresh wolf sign. And an actual moose. Just a little guy. Temperatures where in the upper 80's and the woods were bone dry. Normally, this area is snowed in until middle of July. Only snow we saw... Some beautiful views out there and could see mountains about 40 miles away... Stopped for lunch at the site of an ol

  11. The area around the ski area is pleasant to hike around. The image of Table Mountain and Mazama Ridge was taken years ago, during September. The postcard shows what skiing was like before rope tows and chairlifts. I think that the view is from a spot close to 'Artist Point'. The area below Table Mt. can retain snow into summer. Years ago, there was a report from persons who were at Artist Point and observed a large bipedal animal ascend the snow field from the lake up to Table Mountain at an un-human pace. Their cameras did not have telephoto capability.

  12. Headed out today by myself to find a hidden ground squirrel colony fairly deep in the Idaho mountains that I had stumbled upon while hiking a couple of years ago. Incredibly, I was able to find it. It's off a fairly good gravel road, but it's a steep hike up the mountain. You can barely see my 4Runner parked down on the road... But then when you reach the top, you are rewarded with thousands of acres of old clear cut with ground squirrel colonies everywhere... I settled into a sniper spot with my 10/22 and plenty of action about 1

Saw lots of Mule deer. No Moose, no Elk. Saw a Griz hair pole Nathan knew about where biologists collect hair samples.

  15. I got out for a very nice day in the hills with 2 of my good trail buddies, Thomas Steenburg and Magniaesir. Our goal was a small lake high in a mountain pass between 2 creek drainages. We'd been there before, a few years ago, and felt it was remote enough and "squatchy" enough to warrant another visit. We made it to the lake, but weren't able to descend the creek on the far side, as right alongside the lake the trail was covered in 3 to 4' of heavy wet spring snow. We spent a couple of hours there, enjoying the beautiful weather and looking for tracks in the mud and snow around the lake.

  16. Yesterday, June 12, NorthWind and i got out into the woods on a lovely day. We've had our eyes on a lake that's been fairly inaccessible for various reasons for quite a while. Yesterday got brave and we hiked in from the highway, following a trail that crossed a service road, and presto! Only 3 1/2 miles later, we stood on the beach and filtered the ice cold water to wet our parched throats. I haven't hiked over six miles in quite a while. We didn't find anything but the location raises the possibility of discovering a perfect habitat in the middle of bigfoot central. We just have to look. It

  17. Untrue. That is the ideal, not the reality. There is a difference between big-s "Science" and little-s "science". What you are describing is little-s "science", the process, but what we are confronted with is big-s "Science", the institutions and their priests we call "Scientists." It is pretty clear that in this instance they are more interested in preserving the current belief paradigm than they are in exploring / seeking new knowledge. That makes them priests of a religion, not scientists. There is no such thing as settled science, that makes it religion, dogma which cannot, b

This 'objects thrown' stuff is very interesting, as it would be a culturally learned behavior. The reports of it back that up too. Western WA - 1/14 reports describe 'objects thrown'. Eastern WA - 0 reports describe 'objects thrown' WA Olympics - 1/13 reports describe 'objects thrown' WA Cascades - 1/14 reports describe 'objects thrown' OR Cascades - 1/178 reports describe 'objects thrown' C

  21. I treasure my copy of Sasquatch: Apes among us because it also has a good story behind it. When I first became a member here I got wind of John Green's database which used to be on the web. It was in .csv and the old Microsoft Access (2000) format which was difficult to open. I converted it to Excel and began the work of getting the database into chronological order. I thought letting John Green know what I was doing might be a good idea and so contacted a British Columbia Sasquatch group to see if anyone knew him. Of course they did and I asked if they would forward my email to him.

  22. Getting lots of spring rain this year, which is good, but hard to find time to hike.....makes Bigtex a dull boy, lol. A few pics from recent hikes - very old stone wall that goes for miles through the woods, a cave pictured a few times before but this time something has been digging it out, some interesting marks showing what appears to be toe slides, and in one pic coming & going, a Deer skull put into branches on one of my trails, made friends with a toad, and a cool fossilized piece of bone:)

  23. No Columbia ground squirrels local to me, on the wet coastal side of the mountains, but I've found some large colonies about 2 hours' drive east, on the rain shadow side of the Cascades, in alpine meadows and some ranch grasslands. My daughter and I went out for a ride up one of our local mountains this afternoon, and found the snow had disappeared from the plateau at the top, and the salmonberry bushes were flowering. We saw one fresh bear scat, and several turkey vultures soaring above us, but no other wildlife. Great views of the Fraser Valley from the top

  24. Let me splain. Let's say you want to insert blondie (below) into the forest picture and claim that you ran into her while squatching. You would have to "crop" blondie out of the pic she is in because you don't want the beach background. I don't care how hard you try, you will never get it perfect. Look at her hair, its just not possible, even hollywood has trouble with this. So what happens is that you will end up cropping it "good enough". When you paste the cropped blondie on top of the forest pic, the edges will not match

  25. Who snores the loudest in the camper? Great photos, norse, but didn't Nathan get any of you? I went out solo today. My youngest boy was supposed to come along, but his girlfriend's cat took off just before our planned departure, so he had to deal with her panic and search for the critter, which they eventually found, hours later. In the meantime, I went out to a steep creek valley that I was pretty sure would be quiet, even on this long weekend, and I was right, I saw no one at all for the whole afternoon there. On one branch of the road system, I hit snow at about 1000m eleva

  27. Out of curiosity, assuming most here have a collection of Squatch evidence they've collected, memorabilia, books, etc....what do you consider the "star of your show"? What are you proudest of and show off the most or holds the most sentimental value? I have a footprint casting and a hand print casting that I have on display in my office. Also, I have the hardcover "Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us" 1st printing that was in our school library and was the book i rented out all the time. Unbelievably, a friend picked it up for me at a used book sale at the library for something like 50 cents

  28. Very nice videos thank you! 👍 The guy giving the presentation is very even handed and pretty knowledgeable to be fair, describes himself as a sceptic but has a collection of footprints and things and seems genuinely interested in finding out more about the mystery. It is interesting that an official department would make such a well thought out series of videos though.......... I wouldn't say there's any ulterior motive really from his demeanor or presentation.

  29. It was a dark and stormy night, and I'd been tracking bigfoot for three days. I had finally stalked him close enough to raise my camera and try for a shot! Alas, he vanished (cloaked?), and I was left empty handed. Or was I? The creature had dropped something! It has become my most cherished piece of bigfoot paraphernalia.

  31. Other than anecdotal, It's unconfirmed that he shot anything since there is no carcass or part of one. Has he poached? Probably but it's been pointed out a few times now, what value would there be for a poacher to a) not have poached on that day and have no carcass, then announce that he shot something, wasn't sure what he shot but it got away? And b) indirectly telegraph his actions to the authorities who instantly pounced on him for whatever presumed infractions. That angle has been covered. No other vehicles or hunters in the area to identify their presence. They could have left

  32. In the end, he didn't shoot shoot a bigfoot in all likelihood, my bear cub poaching theory stands, and the one downvote I received for it is representative of those who simply want to believe for the sake of belief. That's not how mysteries get solved.

  33. I learned something new today about how to care for Goretex clothing, such as a jacket. After continued use, in the rain it can feel as though it "wetted out" and will stick to your body. Apparently, cleaning it in a washing machine then putting it straight into the dryer to tumble dry on medium heat will revive the Goretex. I was always concerned heat might damage a Gortex jacket or pants and would let it air dry instead--not any more!!

  34. If they are that intelligent, and 99.9% human, they also have the ability to choose to run and not take on a fight. There's no way, IMO, to make a blanket statement like that. It may have decided the best course of action was to escape.

I have shared this story with a couple of you in the past, but there is a survival instructor in that area that says there are some sort of upright feral creatures that caused him to shut down his classes...these things were described by one person as ‘beast men’. Not too far from there there are human bare prints found in the mud and snow. I find the idea of feral humans more believable than ‘bea

  46. Finally finished my parabolic setup. A few years ago, we heard what sounded like high pitched pseudo-speech/samurai chatter near some caves on the side of a mountain in north Georgia. Our action cam mics couldn't pic it up, so all we were left with so the video of our reactions, some possible small human-like footprints, and our memories... My goal then became to have the ability to not miss such sounds in the future...if we are lucky enough to hear them again.

  47. I'd highly recommend a chest pack from Hill People Gear. You wear it under your backpack (or daypack) and it holds your firearm and other items you want to access. You can drawn quickly from it and it does not interfere with your backpack's hipbelt. Also, you can use two straps they provide to dock it to your backpack so the chest pack is essentially weightless. I never go in the woods without my chest pack and, being a bit of a gear junkie, can say without question that it is the best piece of outdoor gear, or clothing, of any type that I've ever owned in my life.
