  1. You can only get so much out of other people's accounts. The only cure for your current feelings is time in the deep woods. Experience it yourself rather than relying on people sharing their experiences for profit.

  2. Getting started as an adult can be difficult. You need some friends, a mentor. Consider taking some .. I hesitate to call them "classes", maybe seminars is a better word .. from someone like REI to get you roughly familiarized with camping. Then when you are comfortable enough, try going out with a group like BFRO. It is not for everyone but .. y' gotta start somewhere. I know some people who go on such trips who "camp" inside their cars which reduces the amount of gear needed.

  3. What MIB said. "Squatching" is one part of what I do when I head out in the local mountains. I'm out there hunting, prospecting, 4x4ing, and just plain exploring, as I was over 45 years ago when I first had an encounter and trackway find.

  4. This is why I seldom "go bigfooting." Instead, I go fishing, hiking, hunting, exploring, taking pictures, whatever. Make those my first priority. Do it where there seems to be an elevated (comparatively speaking) chance of bigfoot activity, but make bigfoot .. secondary. The odds of success at those other things seems higher, high enough to keep the interest going, and "bigfoot country" is a great place to do them.

  5. We've experienced 'similar' sounds under different circumstances. Here's a couple I could find that I knew where to find in my archives. I'll look thru and see what else I can find that's like that. clip-1-june-10-2012-224am.mp3 550068422_may-30-2012-200am-5302012DVRaudio.mp3 short-clip-of-paul-chased.mp3

  6. I'm just going on a wee bit of a rant here. I was looking for some books on the subject and perhaps a new film to watch (after watching a miserable "documentary" about the She-Squatchers) and it became pretty clear that the world of Bigfoot is stagnant and has been for years. I ordered Peter Byrnes book and Ron Morehead's book but nothing else on Amazon seemed to grab me or I have already read it. And really, do any new books contain any new info or is it just more of the same old stuff dressed up? There is just so much dreck and inane stuff on the publishing side you feel badly for the trees that died for them to be printed. The same with documentaries. You get to watch a few re-enactments, hear a few stories and see a guy tromping through the woods in a gorilla suit but solid evidence or any titillating info is lacking. Basically, we watch 90 minutes of people camping and thinking every brush pop is a 8 foot tall hairy giant. And the talking heads just repeat the same stuff they said in the last film they participated in. Just feels like we are spinning our wheels here and isn't that just the most frustrating thing? You'd think somebody would manage to get something "new' to breath life into things. So, has anybody seen anything lately that makes them excited about the subject or have we run the gamut and plumbed as deep as we can until serious folks do a serious study or, better yet, a body is acquired?

  7. If the cousins won’t help you out and you are truly interested in becoming proficient in the outdoors? There are plenty of survival schools to choose from. Varying skill levels and different courses to choose from. https://www.northwestsurvivalschool.com I have actually thought about putting on a school to learn how to do the stuff that I was raised with. A rifle, a chainsaw and a four wheel drive was like all my friends goal to own by the time we were 16. We just took it for granted. Our greatest time was every fall cutting firewood and hunting deer in the national forest.

  8. I got a text from my buddy Bill (MagniAesir on here) on Friday asking our usual research group (Magni, Thomas, Alohacop, and myself) to meet up for an outing on Sunday morning, so of course I agreed immediately. At 0800 Sunday morning I arrived at the designated spot on Hwy 7, where we all gassed up and headed for the nearby watershed where I had my sighting many years ago. It was raining, but the forecast was for a break in the rain by about 0930. The weatherman LIED!! The rain intensified through the morning, so we continued to the end of the road system near the headwater lake, where there is a rough lean-to shelter where we could sit and talk for a while before calling it a day. By the time we were heading out, what had been small trickles of water down the rocks were now waterfalls, and in places some football size rocks had been washed down the hills onto the roadway. It was definitely time to get out of Dodge! It made for a short day, but we made plans for future trips later in the Spring. The convoy at the shelter. 2 new Rubicons and my 18 year old Hummer This creek is usually a trickle through a boulder field, now a gushing torrent Run off down what is normally a dry rock face

  9. My opinion and observation is that it's only a guess. Can they really? Show us the math. It's as absurd as a guy I once watched in a BF video interview who claimed he could tell the weight and gender of a sasquatch based on their prints, step length, and appearance of the foot print. The person interviewing this guy just ate it all up hook, line and sinker. The bravado of some in the research community is astounding and laughable.

  10. well, here I am! a friend, who's a serious bigfooter, told me about this forum and told me to sign up or GIT OUT! Looking forward to sharing information and contributing to all things BIGFOOT! I'm in Florida, home to the Skunk Ape!

  11. Excellent suggestions to be sure from everyone. It's not like I am a novice or completely inept. Just not equipped for it and am aware of my limitations. I enjoy camping and being in the woods, but I am sure if i took off on my own, I'd end up on the 11 o'clock news after having wasted tax payer dollars for the search party. I'm looking to get a few of my pals who know their way around the hills to join me for a weekend.

  12. This is not a bad strategy. There are reports all the time of roadside sightings.

  13. Believe me, I'd LOVE to be one of those "go outdoors and search" types. Problem is.... well, just not equipped for it. I was not brought up in an outdoorsy household. Oh I've been hunting and camping, but I have no clue how to operate a 4 wheeler or own a truck. I get lost going down a one way street. My knowledge of firearms is not extensive...thus, why I stick with my Ruger .22. My cousins are all avid outdoorsmen and women. But, my dad didn't have the time to take me out as a kid and raise me in such a way. Heck, right now I don't even own a pocket knife. So all of my study is from my office and keeping an eye to the sides of the road when we travel over the mountain passes. Bit of a lost cause I guess...lol.

  14. I was on a BFRO expedition in California very near where the Sierra Sounds were recorded. I heard similar chatter while out there and others reported samurai chatter as well. Apparently they are still doing it out there in that area

  18. Agreed. And then not only who but where is the biggest legitimate factor for me. And with a corresponding track way? It becomes pretty concrete. IMO

  19. If you're in it for entertainment, but have an aversion to clickbait and other nonsense, you're at the current end of the road. The only alternatives I see are 1) to become one of those serious folks doing serious study (There's a requirement for serious patience / stubbornness in the face of apparent lack of progress there, too.) -or- 2) volunteer to assist some forum or other (hint hint wink wink) with administrative duties (this doesn't fix the problem, but allows you to continue participating while acknowledging the current lack of motion). IMHO of course. MIB

  20. The quote is simple and straight forward. One does not need to make an epic trek into deep, dark forests. Spending money on books is questionable. None of the Four Horsemen saw a Sasquatch. Peter Byrnes never saw a Yeti or Sasquatch but he wrote a lot of books. I never bought into the Sierra Sounds entertainment noises. Rehashed rehashed and reformatted rehashed material goes on and on. The content creators have little or nothing to work with. A 'she-squatcher' story that has been lost to time occurred at the Skookum Elk lay cast site. There was a gathering of women at the Elk lay site. They hung out all day. No hairy results. They did not pay attention to the calendar. As day light faded, Elk hunters filtered out of the woods. This begs the question: were they watched through high powered scopes executing the buddy system? "Know before you go".

  21. I can think of 2 videos that show babies. And a bunch of videos that show small tracks. And two members that have encountered them. @Madison5716 @BlackRockBigfoot
