  1. Late to the game here, but here's my take on it all. Yeah, searching for sasquatch still has my interest. HOWEVER. There are so many other things that I love to do in the woods. I love camping and day hiking. I love fishing and fly fishing. I love mushroom hunting. I would like to take up hunting - grouse specifically - in the near future. I'm beginning to take up backpacking and looking into multi-day trips. I want to try horse-packing trips somewhere pretty. I'd like to campfire cook better, and learn to dehydrate and create backpacking food. That said, there are MANY other reasons to be out in the woods than pure bigfoot or cryptid hunting. Our trips are always dual or multi-purpose adventures. I'll never get bored of it. As far as books or movies or even videos - well, there's some people I really enjoy watching (Joe and Jessi @ Hellbent Holler for one, but most I can pass by. I'd rather be out there doing it myself (and doing it better tbh) than watching other nerds in the woods @BobbyO, I completely respect what you're doing and wish you all the best!

  2. The technology exists in affordable scenarios. I used to be around portable gas analyzer's every day at work. One has the test instrument, trained technician and calibration gases. Walking around with the air pump going continuously would be difficult. I personally use Catmandoo Pale Ale to mark my area. I drink a lot of coffee. Nothing grows where Catmandoo goes. Anecdotal guesses are that the scent glands are in the arm pits and it is a fear response that is carried by air currents, not dispersed in urine. I have been hit with the scent several times. Their normal scent for males and females would be left with their tracks. Their feet leave scent all of the time. Factor in weather and heat. There is an affordable and cost effective approach. It is called DOG ( dawg ). Highly sensitive sniffer, almost autonomous, all terrain 4 paw drive, and will alert humans to danger. I understand the bleeding edge technology that is on your wish list. However, one must consider that the smart Sasquatch will observe you with high tech gear and lead you in circles or off a cliff. Go with a smart dog. Can you borrow a cadaver dog?

  3. I don't know what brand he uses but the function is the same. Lightning triggers for cameras work off of the burst of infrared light milliseconds before you see the flash / bolt of lightning. The photographers do not have a 'lightning fast' finger on the shutter button. Planet Earth has over 3,000,000 lightning flashes per day.

  4. I disagree. In both the PG filming event and Freeman filming event, the photographers intentionally went into the field seeking a sasquatch, successfully filmed a sasquatch, and obtained footprint casts of the filmed sasquatch at the film site.

  5. Good points in your post BD. However, the first axiom of Sasquatch is that they find you, you do not find them. Rodger and Bob may have been 'school'. The behavior of Patty will always be debated. All animals watch horses. A horse watching session presented itself. Patty could have cloaked. The movement of Patty in the way of a 'lead-away' procedure could have been 'exit....stage right' and possibly to school her offspring in the behavior of humans and horses. We will never know. Many animals and birds do a 'lead--away' and 'look back' procedure. Water is the common denominator for all animals. Artesian wells are important to check out since they are limited in surface area and visited by many animals. Using smell has challenges. Smoke from forest fires reaches Seattle and has a strong odor and visual presence at times. There are regional and seasonal differences of course. Clean mountain air is a pleasure but sometimes we are denied.

  6. ^ Beautiful pics, Norseman! We didn't get snowed in today in Memphis, it was 96 deg. lol! Me and Gracie (my blue Amstaff) saw Bison at our Shelby Farms Park here about 2 weeks ago. They are fenced, but they looked pretty good. (Shelby Farms is one of the largest urban parks in the world, it's 4500 acres).

  7. Did another long run around Priest lake today with a buddy. Got snowed on. And then from Coolin Id over mill creek to the Kalispel tribe. Saw one bear, lots of deer and the tribe’s bison! Didn't take as many pics. Oh! The pepper steak strips at Elkins resort in Nordman Id are to die for!

  9. The MABRC is looking at the viability of Bigfoot using scents for the markers that they may be making in the woods, this is basically what most every mammal out there does, marking their territory with scent, so why not Bigfoot doing it to mark their markers, making it easier for them to locate these markers in heavy brush, at night time and more. The technology exists to measure scents, it's just beyond reasonable cost to procure it.

  11. I saw the same last night from my back deck! I had never seen the Northern Lights before, so was super stoked to see them!

  12. I've got an EDC knife on me almost always but I guess I never thought this would be one of the uses to put it to. Just read this thread a couple of hours ago and I'm still cracking up over the above sentence.

  13. If Patty is real? Then there is/was a population out there that produced her. There are many places that have been nuked by humanity. I.e. Puget Sound. But there are many places left untouched as well that give me hope. Time will tell. Lots of things are changing in American archeology as well for the better. The 12000 year old Clovis first theory is now officially dead.
