  1. We nearly tested the flight capacity of NorthWind's Jeep yesterday. There's a 10 foot drop off right past the left tread marks, LOL. Too close for comfort! Darn foot deep snow and ice filled tire treads! Otherwise, a gorgeous day, but no sign of any sasquatches. Amazing 10 foot tall rock stack on a massive stump. Not much stood in our way!

  2. I thought it might be a good time to bump this thread again with a special shout out to SweatyYeti for posting this collage years ago (as seen in the BFF 'way-back machine'). Her calf muscles, along with numerous other details) are very convincing to me. I've never seen anything like Patty in any costume either before the PGf or after so; there is really only one logical explanation.

  3. Greetings to Hiflier and to all. Yes, I am still alive and well. The PhD program is very rigorous and therefore I don't have much time to post anymore, but I do still lurk fairly often. Spring break will be dedicated to field research related to the existence of Sasquatch, with an emphasis on locating the remains of a specimen. For this purpose the archaeological method should prove quite useful, and archaeology is a regretfully much neglected science in the field of Bigfoot research. Hopefully I can help to change this. I look forward to the opportunity where I can post consistently once again. Cheers.

  4. Saturday, January 15, 2022 NorthWind and I got into the woods yesterday. Stymied by snow and downed trees everywhere. A great day in the woods anyway! The only bigfoot we found was the one dangling from his new Jeep's rear view mirror.

  7. Date & Time - Saturday, January 15, 2022. Daytime. Weather - clear and cool Location - A lake in the Oregon Cascades What Happened - NorthWind and I headed to the woods to run around in his new truck. Before we headed up into the hills, we took what we thought would be a quick trip out to a muddy lakebed. Instead, we spent an hour admiring a couple dozen 6-inch barefoot prints next to a creek. We've found other things here numerous times - prints, structures and my second possible encounter. Anyway, most of the prints went this way and that - just like a child playing. One line of a dozen or so prints, with four super clear prints all in a line proved to be between 33 and 37 inches heel to heel. Impressive for a 6-inch print! We also took a look at an old structure, but there were no improvements to it. Now, we really need to do some nighttime work out at this location with the FLIR. I've just been working a whole lot (49 hours the week preceding this Saturday), and I'm tired. I'm 95% recovered from the pneumonia, but still. Then, we headed up into the hills and tried out the 4wd The best print line. 33 inches heel to heel between these two. The year and a half old structure. A bit run down now. A pretty print. It's tiny! A very nice right print with my tape measure. Lunch in the woods, of course. Not today! Heading up through the clouds.

  8. There's no doubt more to research in this subject like the ancient finds in the Mammoth Caves but this article shows that more and more scientists in the last fifty years are out there finding and exploring these deep places: https://theconversation.com/ancient-americans-made-art-deep-within-the-dark-zones-of-caves-throughout-the-southeast-158497 And we DO have a member who's currently busy going for his PhD in archeology and who is a proponent of the Sasquatch's existence. In fact, that member will be using spring break to do BF related field research to look for proof of the reality of the creature, and member's main research interest involves caves.

  9. If I could never go to any other location to go sasquatching other than the two areas I enjoy now, I'd be very comfortable with that. Last night, I ran into a friend and wife that I hadn't seen in a few years. We chatted for a while and they were excited about having purchased a 1,000-acre area in what is a remote region to begin with. Included on their property is a 125-acre pond. It's about an hour and a half from my house. They know I like the outdoors and invited me to come up and hang out with them when Spring arrives. How could I say no? I pulled it up on Google Earth and it looks great for sasquatching. Access to mountains in three directions with tons of other ponds, lakes, and streams all around. Being privately owned helps as I'm sure he will not allow others to hunt his property and will limit access to it. If I have a chance I'll take drive up there in the next month and take a look around. I guess we'll see how it plays out when Spring arrives.

  14. Great find. That seems to be a very long step for a six-inch foot--unless someone's, or something's, anatomical structure is different than ours. I'd be curious to see what your step length, or Northwind's, would be if you took strides near where the ones you found. Let's say they were 19". I'd then see what you would have to do to achieve a step length of 33"+. I'm curious if either of you could duplicate the 33"+ step length in that particular substrate in that location. In that trackway above, did the impressions just stop in the middle of lake bed or did they lead to the forest's edge? Also, did they appear out of no where or start at the forest's edge? All things being equal, were I the two of you, I'd be devoting a lot of time to that location. You two are hitting it out of the park. Congratulations.

  15. I grew up in central Florida, as kids we got to go many times to Silver Springs, the glass bottom boat trips over the springs were amazing...love to go back & into deeper waters, maybe where the Lettuce Lake sas was filmed. Plenty of swamps down there for skunk apes to fish in, hunt gators, snakes...if you haven't seen the Lettuce Lake video, it's really intriguing.

  16. Had to replace starter in Grizzly. What a nightmare. Had to tear off the front, tank, air box and carb. The Yamaha dealer in Sandpoint sent me a Chinese starter. I said NOPE. Order me a Yamaha starter. But its 3x as much they say. Don't care. Also got a new heater fan in the Blazer. Its nice to have heat now! Also jerry rigged the plow. Hopefully it will last the rest of this winter. Was back blading and somehow caught the plow bracket and partially ripped it off the frame.

  18. Very nice Mr. Perez. I found an overlooked article on the list. It is not listed on Bigfoot Encounters. It is another story of a human being kidnapped by a Sasquatch. This one has Sasquatch using fire. Brewster, David. “Our Last Monster.” Seattle, August 1970, pages 29-33. This article is in "Seattle Magazine". The author is David Brewster and the kidnapee is Warren Scott. Humans in sleeping bags look like soft tacos. Claiming to be transported 70 miles in a night is bold. Some of the details of the story are unique and some could have been gleaned from historic events. I have not found any records of Mr. Scott attempting to relocate the Sasquatch. The Bigfoot Times has 2 layers of subscriptions; US domestic and 'rest of the world'. I am curious about 'rest of the world'. Do you have the stats handy for number of subscriptions out side of the US?

  21. I plan to live in the uintah mountains for two or three weeks this coming summer. im coming from slc utah so i want to be east of kamas but not go over the peak to where mirror lake is. i have two questions related to this trip which will be focused on trying to see or hear a bigfoot. 1- can anyone recommend a place east of kamas that would be a good place to camp for two or three weeks? i have a hunch about a place called upper setting. its only a few miles east of kamas utah and then you go left up a dirt road with switchbacks till you get to upper setting. i have always just had a feeling about this place bit there is not a lot of water just a small creek up there and i want to choose a good spot for this trip. 2- any recommendations for bigfoot organizations that i could contact to get more information on good places? thanks for any help and informatoin.

  22. Thanks, @wiiawiwb. My stride can be seen in this video, from a different area, but very similar circumstances. I didn't do very well to match them. I am over 6 feet tall if that gives you any indication. Stride matching happens at about the 26:00 mark or thereabouts. https://youtu.be/jQlT2JREU6M

  23. i would have to know that for myself unfortunately before i could believe it to be that message. i may have experienced this two times though but did not see anything so i cant be sure. still it was near midnight and i was sitting by a pond and something threw a boulder into the lake a couple of times. my friend and i left but something followed us out breaking branches loudly along the way for about a quarter of a mile. strangest thing about this is that about a month earlier around the same time of night a couple of boulders were thrown into the same pond that caused us to leave that night too. but this place is well traveled at leaste in the day..... there are no roads to it and it is illegal to camp there but its withing 3 miles of snowbird ski resort in utah!! so its not fair for bigfoot to ask us to leave that place and the place i plan to take my daughter is also well traveled. there is a road going there but you have got to have a four wheel drive to get there. still hikers go there all the time as there are hiking trails running through it ill check out those links. yes two or three weeks seems ideal right?

  24. Hello, @trapper. I would think you're talking about a good area to begin with. Almost anywhere you go around there could be good. Nathan Reo was from around there, but he has pulled all his videos down for the most part. Still, you may be able to hook up with people from "Project Go and See" which is a group he started or was involved with. I think they are on FaceBook, Twitter, etc, but I'm not sure because I don't "do" FaceBook. Reo would find all kinds of structures in those areas, and he even documented some activity and recorded more than one on video. There was one where he got chased out of an area in those mountains. @Madison5716might be able to direct you to this video if it is still up. Check out her rather extensive playlist for some possible ideas. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJv2YjS83KPg0q8Yre0LIGjdZq5LR_sBd Good success to you! I wish I could tag along. I'd love to check out the forests around there. Stay safe.

  28. On a somewhat unrelated note, but not really given the title of the thread is "Terror in the Woods," I recently watched a documentary called "Don't Call me Bigfoot" in which Mattsquatch mentioned a second or third hand account. There is no way of verifying the accuracy of this report, so I am not sure if it is true or not, but if it is true it would certainly make things interesting. He referenced an account told by a CIA operative working in Nepal decades ago where he allegedly witnessed an encounter between a Bigfoot-like animal and a tiger over a deer carcass. The tiger had apparently killed the deer and the Bigfoot was attempting to steal the kill. The tiger stood its ground, but the apparently enraged Bigfoot picked up the tiger and broke its spine and then walked off with the deer carcass. Again, there is no way of verifying the accuracy or lack there of, of this report. But if true it would give new meaning to the phrase "Terror in the Woods." And any animal capable of breaking a fully grown Bengal tiger in half would certainly take the title of "apex predator" to a whole new level...

  30. And a nice "hello" goes out to Wooly Booger BUT, would a Sasquatch discovery ever reach us if any discoveries were considered Human remains? Information on Human remains does sometimes get published but one could surmise that a very robust set of remains with certain Sasquatch anatomical features would not? https://archive.org/details/guidelinesforres00knoe/mode/2up

  31. Aquatic little dudes! Yes, I can see these creatures swimming like us. I would that they would be strong swimmers. Never seen them in the water but have seen them in the wild. But I bet it be amazing.

  32. Perhaps underwater, yes, but it seems like creeks, rivers and other bodies of water are a weakpoint for them in that the roaring sounds of the water muffles incoming footfalls (and scent?) of people and electronics. Could hide some very inconspicuous trailcams along rivers in known Squatch territories....

  33. Same through this area…old logging and forestry roads crisscross our current area. Many of them are too far gone even for 4 wheel drive vehicles, but they are usually easier to navigate on foot then just busting through the brush. A lot of the national and state parks/forests used to be private property with inhabitants…before the residents were kicked off of their land by the government. If you pay attention to the lay of the land, you can often tell where old dirt roads or cleared spots for cabins used to be. We have found possible Sasquatch tracks on some of these old, overgrown roads before.

  34. It could also be a way to survive a wildfire as long as breathing was an option. If breathing wasn't then there could be BF or other skeletons in the bottoms of ponds?

  36. I really like the idea of the thermal imager mounted on a slow-rolling vehicle. I searched Pulsar's website and somehow missed two mounting options. They have a glass/windshield mount and a C-clamp mount that could go on a roof rack or other attachment point. Both of these allow for a fixed mount in a variety of angles. With these in mind, I bet they could also be incorporated into the RAM or Woods mounting systems. I like the idea of 3 suction cups rather than one as it seems it would be safer but I could be fooling myself.

  37. I've heard several stories of them swimming and i see no reason to doubt that they would or could. I mean, certainly if it came to locating more resources for survival or evading a group of hunters I think it is logical they would do so.

  38. These two sightings separated by ~43 years got me wondering if they are the same BF and if so how long do these guys live. http://squatchable.com/report.asp?id=1177 At first, I was not sure whether I was looking at an animal's head or a person's head. I remember it was rounded at the bottom and more elongated towards the top. It seemed a little bigger than mine and was covered with short silvery-gray hair. Its face seemed human with a flat nose, its eyes were small and dark. It made no sound. After a few seconds of silent starring, it turned towards the road and began moving quickly. It seemed to be running on all fours at first; but after about 10 yds. it stood up on just two legs and continued to scamper until it crossed the road and then disappeared into the woods. I would guess that it was about 6-7' tall. It's frame was very large from the hips up and it was covered with shaggy silvery-gray hair. http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=71801 IT HAD THE FACE OF AN APE WITH A 'BUMP' ON TOP OF IT'S HEAD. THE FUR WAS LONG AND LOOKED WHITE...KIND OF LIKE A DIRTY WHITE SHAGPILE CARPET. AFTER READING THE REPORT FROM THE PERSON WHO SAID IT WAS SILVER, THAT COULD BE TRUE AS I WAS SEEING IT FROM JUST MOONLIGHT AND VEHICLE HEADLIGHTS. IT WAS INDEED ABOUT 6-7' TALL BY MY BEST ESTIMATE. Gorilla's reportedly live for more than 50 years in the wild. Humans males in developed countries live roughly 70 years. https://gorillafacts.org/how-long-do-gorillas-live/ Of course this could simply be the case of someone reading a BF report and copying it but either way my question is still the same. How long do you think these guys live. My guess is it is somewhere between humans and gorillas so I am putting the over/under at 69 years. Thoughts?

  40. Don’t worry NorthWind, even if you did lose your mind you’d have company. Someone said: “Of all the things I’ve lost over the years, I miss my mind the most.” I didn’t make up this saying but I’ll join the person who said it!

  41. Things always do taste better in the woods. Traipse around all day getting dirty and probably wet, maybe going up and over a mountain, then returning back to camp. It's great to start a fire, make a hot drink, and prepare a simple meal for dinner that will taste like it was from Daniel's in Manhattan. I like to make a tea from fresh cedar needles/leaves and add dried star anise, cinnamon, and ginger that I bring with me. For those who haven't compared, here is a good summary of the different tastes of cedar, pine, fir, and spruce.

  43. I've definitely heard of these creatures swimming, including the instances of Witnesses seeing them swimming Columbia River like you mentioned. It is also said that they swim to and from Vancouver Island among other destinations. I heard a few accounts on podcasts about Sasquatch swimming... In one instance one swam toward a boat of fisherman,, who promptly vacated the area. In another story two younger kids had a hungry Sasquatch swim up and relieve the youths of a stringer of fish. Certain primates, including humans of course, do exhibit the ability to swim so it is certainly plausible that our large hairy friends occasionally do as well. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Xlaau1t3LTE

  45. Some say they are smart enough to mimic birds and other animals. What if quadrupedal motion was just that? As in imitating bears. Others say quadrupedal/crab walking is simply a stealth move in an effort to reduce their profile in low vegetation. In other words, a hunting posture when tree peeping isn't an available commodity for ambushing or hiding/moving closer to a target, like a camp. There are also reports that all being on, or dropping to, all fours is a preparation for either a bluff charge or an outright attack. Like the BFRO report #8547 out of Texas where a hunter in a tree stand observed one getting from tree to tree bipedally when sneaking up on wild hogs and then dropping to all fours to launch itself while letting out a scream and capture one. And IIRC, I also think it was a female.

  46. Often we hear that the Yeti is more Plausible than Sasquatch. The Yeti lies in the mysterious hinterlands of the Himalayas. While the Sasquatch supposedly exists in Seattle’s back yard. But is this true? Surely the Asian crowned jewels and greatest heights in the world smashes any challenger in terms of remoteness and wildness, correct? First, if you look at each mountain range comparatively without regard to its longitude or latitude axis? A stunning fact emerges. Tall mountain ranges create rain shadows. Both mountain ranges are a semi circular crest. With the Himalayas creating the Gobi desert to the north. While the cascades create a rain shadow into the Columbia plateau which is then bordered by the western Rockies to the east. The Himalayas southern flank is populated by dense lush jungle. With moisture coming from the Indian Ocean. While the Cascades western flank is populated by dense lush temperate rainforests. With moisture coming from the Pacific. Parts of India adjacent to the Himalayas can receive 90 inches of rain per year. The parts of the US and Canada west of the cascades can receive up to 120 inches of rain per year. Nepal and Bhutan sit roughly at 28 degrees north. In comparison to North America? Corpus Christi, TX is at 28 degrees north. So the southern flanks of the Himalayas are much more close to the equator than the Cascades. Albeit the western flanks of the Cascades are much closer to the Pacific Ocean. A Yeti could have access to many species of tree fruits including Mango and Guava. While a Sasquatch could have access to many species of berries. Both areas are rich in flora and fauna with the Cascades also providing a huge boon in marine life. Lets look at Human populations. China and India are roughly 1.4 billion people EACH. (2.8 billion) Nepal is 28 million and Bhutan is 750,000. The US population is 330 million and Canada is 37 million. What about regional populations? Vancouver BC - 631,000 Seattle Wa - 761,000 Portland - 645,000 Kathmandu Nepal - 1.4 million Its hard to decipher population numbers by region. But definitely despite the growing I5 corridor? There are more people living in close proximity to the Himalayas than the Cascades. With human habitation sharply dropping off north of Vancouver BC. Bhutan is much less dense than Nepal at 28 million people to the west. So in both cases populations are not evenly distributed. Also size relation. For example. Measuring Nepal from north to south through the city of Kathmandu it is 100 miles across. Where as measuring from the pacific coast east to Leavenworth, Wa (eastern limit of mountains) through Seattle, Wa is 175 miles. The Himalayas are the tallest mountains in the world. But if measured by prominence? (Imagine cutting a mountain off at its base for comparison) Many American and Canadian flags begin to appear high on the list. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mountain_peaks_by_prominence Conclusion. Does the legendary status of the Himalayas hold up? Actually looking at this comparison closely? I think the similarities far outweigh the differences. But the Cascades are every bit as wild and remote as the Himalayas. And either example is well within its capacity as a eco system to hide a large bipedal primate.
