  1. Kind of the opposite of a field trip, since this happened at home...but, A friend of ours sneaked over to our property and put our early Christmas present up while we were out. Still not used to seeing it as I come down our road.

  2. On October 26, 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin were interviewed on radio by Jack Webster in Vancouver, following the showing of the Patterson-Gimlin film at the University of British Columbia that same evening. Fortunately, John Green had a copy of the interview in his cassette tape collection. He graciously permitted me to make a copy of the recording and all of his other cassette recordings as well. These will later be added to this channel. Until now, and after a long 53 years, the interview had not been made public. The significance of the Patterson-Gimlin interview is quite profound,

  3. Jack Webster, because of his tenacious questioning of politicians, was known as the "Oatmeal Savage". I thought this was a very good interview, as Jack had obviously done his homework by watching the film, and asking very relevant questions. Thomas Steenburg has a copy of that tape, but has never used it publicly, or shared it online. A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of sitting across a table from Bob Gimlin over a meal with John Green, and a number of other research notables, and listening to virtually the same account direct from the horse's mouth, as the saying goes.

  4. In answer to your very reasonable question, Moonface, my sighting 40+ years ago was of a creature of similar size and shape to Patty, but far enough away to be unable to compare other details. It was about 100 to 150 yards distant, and moving away from me, so no frontal view at all, and I had no binoculars or scope to enhance the details.

  7. Saturday, November 28, 2020 NorthWind and I went back out to where we had a FLIR sighting in July hoping to see if any hairy folk were hanging around. They weren't. We froze our butts off and an intrepid mouse entertained us by climbing into my truck engine repeatedly. Then we made soup and coffee to warm up with the nifty little stove NorthWind made out if a soda can. Still frozen and nothing was happening, so we left and dang near hit a suicidal deer on the way out. Y3s, I spilled the fuel on the dirt road. Hard pouring in the dark! Made a co

  8. Overall, it's definitely an intriguing contest lineup worthy of discussion and analysis. Sometimes threads just take on a life of their own. There is overlap with the contest entries thread that could have been used for replies but that one is locked.

  9. @ShadowBorn Let me begin by saying that I didn't down vote you. In the interest of obeying the forum moderators, could you give us a bit of guidance on what you are considering thread drift here? I posted a video of lights that I captured on a recent outing. The comments that followed that post were, while humorous, in response to my bafflement as to what I saw. Is this thead supposed to be evidence only, with no follow-up discussion? Or is it just the humorous comments that are considered off topic? I am asking this publicly instead of vi

  10. I'm very interested in that area up Highway 108, especially at @ 4500'-6000' elevation in winter. East of that, at @ 8000' elevation in October, is the area of the Sierra Sounds events. I've run SSI queries on the seasonal differences in reports in the area, and sure enough, the winter reports are all on the western side of the Sierras and at @ snowline or just below. Looks like a great place to camp for a few weeks one winter........if I can find a legal place to do so that time of year..........

  11. 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

  14. I have shared this with a couple of people via PM, but we were able to catch the brighter of the lights that we saw around the abandoned settlement as we were climbing the switchbacks of the mountain to get out of that valley. There is nothing in this valley that should be causing lights like this...no homes or power, no roads, no radio towers. The dimmer orange lights would slowly illuminate, then drift and slowly wink out. These lights were slightly brighter and we were able to catch them on our larger IR camera. These lights kind of 'danced' around the area of

  15. I frequent this lake and I know Tobe well as a researcher. I have absolute confidence in his identification ability. This is a very squatchy area, despite the people. I have found prints here, and been yelled at by a sasquatch close by. I am 99.5% certain these are real and I KNOW there are bigfoots nearby. I will absolutely go on record as saying I think that it's not only possible, but probable. Because I know the London Prints were found there, it's a place I return to again and again, hoping for something just like that! Also, I'm cert

  16. I don't know why the down votes or hostility. That sucks. NorthWind and I saw two on the FLIR on July 5th at night.. So, it was pitch black and their signatures bright white, mostly blobs. I saw shoulders and a head silhouette very clearly. We think one of them was around 9 feet tall? So, I can't really answer your question. We MAY have seen one in broad daylight watching us from a drainage pipe across a river. Again, it was ambiguous. Could have been a weirdo standing in 2 inches of water in the middle of nowhere, not near any trails, in all dark clothing, who stepped

  17. It won't let me answer without posting a photo, so. @BlackRockBigfoot I'm not on any other forums? Not sure what you're referring to. @DrPSH, since we put up the trail cam, all activity has stopped. Figures. Saturday, November 22, NorthWind and I went on a hike with one of my friends, and then explored some roads near the trail. Found snow, a cave, crows and lunch.

  18. This forum is hard work. As a newbie I found there to be a bit of an unfriendly 'vibe', making it difficult to fit in. The downvotes in here highlight that. It's because you're not part of the 'in crowd' Moonface. This is why I stopped bothering.

  21. https://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=2309 one of my all time favorite articles for three reasons it’s the county I grew up in. My Dad was the supervisor for Caltrans at the time of the incident and was with Sheriffs Deputies listening to the scrams that night. And also viewed the track way later found. And it’s pre- PGF. The local paper Union Democrat wrote several articles over three months documenting the occurrences.

  23. We were looking down into the valley. At this point we were 3/4 of the way up the side of the mountain hiking out looking down at an angle. Those tree tops are actually lower than where we were. It was a pretty steep drop from there back into the bottom of the valley. Whatever the lights were, they appeared around that old settlement and then would flash and briefly appear as they moved straight up the opposing mountain. There are no trails or roads over there. We checked the surrounding area when we got to the top to make sure that there were no radio towers with flashing l

  24. Firstlite makes hunting/outdoor gear. They are having a nice sale right now (their stuff isn't cheap). I personally have the neck gaiter in blaze orange and dry earth in addition to the beanie/merino wool hat. Would recommend both very highly. Have a pair of gloves coming to replace the ones I wiped my ass with in the woods on Monday (no joke - long story). Check them out! https://www.firstlite.com/

  27. The entries are very interesting. All of them have high research value. @BlackRockBigfoot's print combined with orange orb report is significant. There's a rabbit trail with this one. I'm not even in the field and I can see it from here. @NorthWind deserves to win just because he mentioned German sparkle party and realized he was not wearing long pants while waist high in the thicket. Good stuff from wind and @Madison5716. Looks like 2 BFs in the thermal. @norseman's femur looks like it could potentially be legit. A good reason to break a femur over a rock

Of course, I encourage anyone with input to chime in and contribute to answering the question posed by Moonface. Regretfully, I have no personal accounts to mention.

  43. It was very nice. I had moments of service while I was up on the ridges. Other than that, I was completely disconnected from Sat AM to today at about 2pm. Didn't once check the news when I did have service...just checking in on the wife and kids...and bragging to my Dad about being the best whitetail hunter between the two of us! Editing to add...we were pretty far out there and remote. I walked a lot of ground, ridges, hollers, etc. Had a moment of freakout when my headlamp went out in the pitch black opening morning as soon as my SxS ride dropped me off...but it was

  44. Yes. Had quite the opening day. I decided to come back and spend the balance of week with family rather than at camp. Couldn't shoot another buck if I wanted and the odds of me seeing a black bear are slim. Another member of the group took a rushed shot and missed. She's probably in the Carolinas by now! This way my deer are already at the processor and I'll have them back before I head home without waiting around for meat. Successful trip.

  46. Welcome to the forum Wet Dog! gigantor, I too have a few issues with the film but keep coming back to the conclusion that it is a real creature and not a man in a suit! As far as the diaper butt I think some humans look like that. And don't upright creatures such as humans have to have buttocks to walk on two legs? Picture if you will a slightly over weight person who is covered with fairly short hair. Plus I'm not trying to be funny here! lol! And to me the leg seam could just be loose skin or the light playing tricks on us depending on the angle. Having been to Bluff Creek back i

  47. I was at a location today where it would have been helpful to have my thermal with me during daytime. I was scanning the pond area and couldn't see anything in the woods across the pond. Something could be standing three feet inside the forest's edge and I wouldn't see it without the thermal.
