  1. Was in the woods today, but was sighting in my new hunting rifle. Ruger Predator in .308 with a Nikon 3x9 P-Tactical scope. Met my brother at the informal range, which was the site of a clay mining operation back around WWII. Rifle did OK, with 7/8" group at 100 yards using handloads, but nothing special. Hoping to get it down to 1/2" with some more load development. No sign of Bigfoot, but the prolific amount of wet clay made tracking every animal in the area easy. But, frequent heavy rains erased most tracks every couple of days.

  2. I've just become unschackled from the drudgery of work. This past year offered once-in-a-lifetime challenges, and untold hours spent, on Covid-related matters. I'm used to getting out in early Spring, long before this, looking for activity, such as prints, in muddy areas. Can't wait to get out this week, backpack loaded with gear, and just focusing on the forest. What secrets lie there waiting to reveal themselves? I will likely miss many, perhaps almost all of them, but a few await detection. I hope others revel in the beauty of Spring and rebirth of the forest. It'

  4. You may be onto something. Years ago I was investigating the lahar on the East Side of Mt St Helens. For several years I got up there in the spring as the snow melted and patrolled the lahar hoping to find a bigfoot that might have been killed and buried by the 1980 eruption. Each spring the runoff is strong and washes away the lahar very aggressively. That did not yeild any direct results but I found a peculiar pile of rocks that was rectangular in form and seemed to have been created by stacking of rocks. It was about 12 by 6 and the rocks were piled up three feet higher than

  8. I agree with that your comment about a mess. Should someone find a suspected BF bone weathering out of an embankment the best thing they could do would be to photograph it carefully in situ then bring in a scientist to extract it. That sort of spreads the legal issues out and could keep you from breaking the law somehow. The scientist would know what permissions and permits need to be obtained. More importantly than that is the layers the bones are in are just as important because they can provide dating and how the bones are arranged tells a great deal too. Fully expect to lose

  9. There are numerous reports whereas a witness claims that he/she has been touched by a BF. I don’t have the statistics on the % of reports with that claim, but my guess is between 1 and 10 per thousand reports (0.1% to 1%). Of the reports that I have read and heard from radio interviews and eyewitnesses, most of them occur while the witness is lying on his sleeping bag inside the tent. The BF hand either goes inside the tent or touches the witness by pressing the tent down. I have read other cases whereas witness is touched when the BF reaches through a car, RV, or hous

  10. We are in the field all through the fall and winter. However, we’ve had a ton of other commitments over the past month and a half...and haven’t been out once. I have been speaking to two separate witnesses that are about an hour from each other, so my plan is to do a preliminary solo scout next weekend to familiarize myself with the area and met the people involved in person. My partner is actually taking a wilderness survival course this weekend, and she let me know via satellite text that the instructor has had several Class B encounters as well as a possible class

  11. I am fascinated by how this vast continent (two continents, actually) came to be populated. It's a field that's wide open, with new discoveries occasionally showing earlier and earlier habitation. It's a contentious field, and it seems the "Clovis First" axiom has generally been found to be inaccurate. Current evidence suggests the first Americans were here perhaps 20,000 years ago (BP). It must have been an amazing time. It's a valid thread topic, as we can speculate whether bigfoot was present for far longer, or if they, too, immigrated into the Americas in the more recent past,

  14. I had a vague idea that they were in the nightshade family...which tomatoes are too, of course...and that might have sent me down a path of confusion about them. I suppose the little lantern shroud falls off of them late in the season. Thanks for the clarification. You see these a lot in fields that have been cut over or hayed.

  15. I'm not sure about the specifics of when it went down and we never got it back up, but we do not have a website with the vocals posted like many years back. Since we don't have that going any longer, that's why I felt it was fair and appropriate to share files here at least. I've only used the Earthworks mic for attempts to capture infrasound for 1 season now. 2021 will make the 2nd year trying to capture something with it. Thus far, there's nothing to report on that. It captures the area amazingly in mono, but there's been no indication of anything that would qualify for infrasoun

  20. @Northwind Thanks! @ BlackRockBigfoot Thanks also. For no good reason, I've never immersed myself into encounter followup. I think it would be absolutely fascinating. Seeing and hearing about encounters and experiences, some recent, and listening to and watching the reactions of people. I think that is a great idea. I've taken wilderness survival training and it was life changing. The one I took was an 80-hour course in 1995 offered by a three people who were Tom Brown survivalists that had formed their own survival group. It provided the foundation for being ab

  23. While I think this is beyond the scope of most lay man? It certainly hold promise. Look at the Hobbit-Ebu Gogo connection. I own a shovel and am always on the lookout for bones. (Not that I always know what Im looking at) But I am not the guy that is going to grid out an area and dig with a trowel and a tooth brush inch by inch and document everything. On public lands your probably going to need permits and credentials too. Which could be problematic. I think the problem with general science is they are not digging deep enough to find the things they

  24. BobbyO, Steve Isdahl wrote on his YouTube channel that he would post the same video/story repeatedly every month because he felt it was very important. However, I think he has posted it previously ~3 and ~6 months ago. Not quite every month. I heard it for the first time last year, and I believe that he also included it in his book. I don't know if the eyewitness (John Black) has written to BFRO or not.

  25. I found a free infrasound detector app for Android phones. It uses the phone's microphone and accelerometer to detect/log infrasound between 4Hz and 30Hz. I'm thinking of taking it to the zoo when it reopens to see what happens.

  26. Thank you for posting this as that would make an excellent research tool in the field. I guess it's a good thing that I'm old school and still use an Android lol. Now I have even less of a reason to update to an I Phone.

  27. Very cool, thanks gigantor! One of the issues with detecting infrasound is the many false triggers. This was the result of the project I am reading about from the University of Vienna; "Acoustic Detection of Elephant Presence in Noisy Environments". Try running your detector on the close up noiseless sound file from GuyInIndiana below.

  28. BRB, Yes, I thought about that example and remembered it, but that is different than lifting a boy by its armpits to eye level and looking into him deeply. Maybe I am reading too much into this incident, but that shows more intelligence and inquisitiveness. Rather than playing with a small human. The guy who was lifted was not injured. Only his psyche was injured, since he moved to the city and never went back outdoors (according to his friend who was interviewed).

  36. Question: What you describe as ground cherries ...are you referring to the small, low growing yellow-orange fruit I see in the video? That looks like a plant we see over in the fields in the Shenandoah Valley...not sure what you call it...not the Chinese lantern-type fruit thingy. Trying to research the other one.

  37. On Sunday I was at the creek where I had my sighting decades ago. The first and last photos are at the creek, el. about 1500', and the middle one is near the summit, near 4000'. The trees are all fully leafed and ground plants are green already.

  40. What about Siberia or SE Asia or Australia? I mean I like our PAC NW. But we didn’t just did up two new species of hominids who were living in Asia recently. (Hobbits Flores and Luzon) As a betting man I would put money on Asia as turning up something that science hasn’t discovered.

  41. Tobe Johnson is a friend that @Madison5716introduced me to and the three of us have gone out into the field. He's quite the character! He is a magnet for strange things happening in his life, to put it mildly. He was the person who called Cliff Barackman about the London trackway.

  42. "Cry once" as I've heard it expressed--when you pay for it, not every time you use it. I try to buy the best I can afford, and if I can't afford new I'll find a good used version. I have so little tolerance for crap and we're inundated with it nowadays. So much nicer to use a quality piece of kit.

  43. I have listened to both of the "Sierra Sounds " cds many times. And we're talking probably 100 times each. What's fascinating to me is, at least in my opinion, those sounds would be impossible to fake. First and foremost, the vocalizations run the gamut of speech patterns and inflections. In the various recordings, the vocalizations contain phonemes, laughter, elements of exasperation, and the fact that there are at least 4 different sources of the vocalizations as well. You can clearly discern a very large, deep voice. A very feminine high pitched voice, and occasionally a very small voice.

  44. GuyInDiana, looking (well actually staring) at the right hand print, that doesn't seem consistent with it leaning over to peek in the window. The left hand seems more solidly placed, but the right looks like it quite obviously slid on the glass. Yet, not with the full hand in contact with the glass. I wonder if what we're looking at is an attempt to push the camper over or at least rock it. The reason I say that is because if you're applying force in an upward motion, that would account for the smear pattern of the 'pinky' finger moving in an opposite direction to the thumb, in
