  1. Had my appointment with the surgeon. I'll be having a double mastectomy surgery on August 28th, in 2 weeks. On the downside, my kitten will miss the shelf she likes to sleep on, and on the upside, the men's shirts I like to wear will fit better!

  2. I spoke with Thomas Steenburg yesterday, to enquire how Bill Miller was doing, and heard that he had phoned Thomas to arrange closing his tour business for the winter, so he obviously has the breathing tube removed, and is alert enough to be concerned with his future, so that's a good sign. I have no details on the problems that put him in the hospital, but he seems to be on the way to a recovery. Thank you all for your concern and prayers.

  3. I have three {3} of Rene Dahindan's Sasquatch brochures left. After these are gone, they are only in personal collections. And, these brochures, which are "Mad Magazine" humorous, rarely show for auction. I traded some things to Larry Lund, the owner of of Rene's last box, for the ones I have, maybe 10 years ago. So, if you donate $100 to the forum's fund raising, you will get a copy. Please note, I have attached these brochures to a copy of my book "The Oregon Bigfoot Highway" on an auction house for about $25 plus shipping. So, I guess I'll include a copy of the book But again, when

  4. Dear BFF Members, The Steering Committee, the Forum Administration Team and I want to thank you for supporting the BFF. Your generosity has put us in a very good financial situation and we want to give the surplus back to the community in a way that encourages research. I am proud to announce the first ever Bigfoot Forums Researcher of the Year contest. With your continued support, we hope to make this an annual event. You should know that this forum is entirely funded by you and nobody makes a profit, all funds go to run the BFF. Thank You Again -gigan

  6. "But knowing an area is active is very valuable information becauseit can lead to all othet associated research". Yep. Over the year and a half I've been involved in this bigfoot adventure, I've gotten to know some of the local knowers, experiencers and researchers. It's a strange little community LOL, and it's been a journey getting connected and I feel like an Apprentice Bigfooter all the time, LOL. AFTER we began finding prints and such at these various lakes and rivers, it was like "oh yeah, let me tell you what happened to us there/near there/within a few miles"

  7. Want to see what I've accomplished sitting in my armchair? I long for your approval so that I can go back to being critical of others. Here is the result of YEARS of effort, classifying encounters into the SSR database. Notice that big open spot in Oregon? As of today there are 7190 classified reports in our database, and most (outside of Washington) were entered by me. Along with that, I've been putting John Green reports on this site since they no longer had a public web location. I did this while adding them to SSR. Feel free to read through the 1000

  8. I went backpacking into Emigrant Wilderness over labor day weekend. I read an old report of a daylight BF sighting on the southern end of the Relief Reservoir and wanted to explore that area. Went in at Kennedy Meadows trail-head and climbed up to Upper Relief Valley. Distance was about 9.6 miles and climb about 3,600 ft. Took me 2 days to climb. Unfortunately, the Creek Fire (NE of Fresno) dumped ash and soot on the whole area on Saturday afternoon and I decided to bail out on Sunday (instead of Monday). At 5 pm on Saturday, I could not see the sun and it was

  10. So over the weekend me and tha wifey took a little trip we went to willow creek and drove down the Bigfoot Highway hoping to see a sighting or hear a sound. We recently learned Bigfoot likes berries and fish and such other things off the land heard many stories how Bigfoot would barter with the natives. Maybe people beliefs are different but we know he is out their and just waiting to come in a encounter with him

  11. Just got back from 6 days of exploring a small portion of the Six Rivers National Forest and the Siskiyou Wilderness in Northern California. Spent 2 nights car camping in the SRNF and 3 nights backpacking into the wilderness. The best part of the trip was the backpacking part, since I went deeper into the wilderness and I saw plenty of wildlife. Below are some pictures of the wilderness area and the lake where I camped the first night. Also showing a picture of my thermal imager setup. This was the first time that I backpacked with a large lithium battery (the Jackery

I wanted to get the video up first with a copyright on it before we even thought about anything else and then talk it over with @Madison5716. I am certainly not looking for notoriety, nor money really. Then again, $1500 split two ways would put a tiny little microscopic dent in my divorce attorney's bills.

  15. I admit I, Wolfjewel, am an armchair Bigfooter. One good thing an armchair philosopher can do, imho, is keep encouraging folks to 👍listen with care to all sides 👍avoid labels 👍state your opinion or experience without fear of putdowns. When people use labels that pit “us against them,” that’s the surest way to guarantee both sides will learn nothing from each other. As a BFF member since 2016, I’ve read plenty of mud-slinging posts in the past. Happily, the public part of the Forum recently got cleaned up (yay!) and violators of the decency code banned.

  16. No wonder I was getting cabin fever, it's been 2 months since I last got out! Between bad weather and "honey-do"s I missed 7 weekends, but today was the last day of deer season, so I had no trouble persuading my youngest boy (Oh no!, my baby just turned 49 five days ago!!) to come along for a trip to the mountains. We left home pre-dawn, and were starting up the East Harrison FSR shortly after sunrise. The day was forecast to be decent, not great, but not raining. We encountered some fog for the first hour along the lakeside, but the rest of the day alternated between overcast and

  18. I thought I would share a few photos from some of my forays since my relocation, I have done a good deal of exploring the more wild regions of Eastern WA , Northern ID and even Western MT. Since moving I have spent a great deal of time exploring eastern WA, Northern ID and sections of Western Montana, these areas are remote, thick and dangerous. The forest is very diverse and is composed of a wide variety of coniferous trees that range in age, I was very surprised at the density of trees I find over a century old in the valleys, lungwort lichen is very common as well as old mans

  19. Went to see my Surgeon to drain more fluid yesterday, and she says things are healing well. Had a meeting with my Oncologist this morning. She said, long story short, that my risk assessments came out the lowest that they've seen, and that means NO CHEMOTHERAPY and NO RADIATION! They think they got all the cancer. I'll still have to do the hormone therapy, and I meet with that doc in a week. I can return to limited work next week, too. Which is good because i am out of vacation and sick leave! More good news!

From the Portland field office of the FBI: "Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control. Please help our entire community by only sharing validated information from official sources."

  21. Not the one from the controversial Bigfoot video, but the one in Idaho. It's pretty deep into the woods, and I'm not going for BF research. My grandfather died about 15 years ago while I was living out of state and I couldn't attend his memorial service. I heard that he was cremated and ashes spread, but never knew the details. That side of my family is dysfunctional and bitter. Grandma's ashes were stolen by my aunt and no one knows what happened to them. I was talking to my dad a couple of weeks ago and said I was interested in camping out in the Marble Creek and

  22. Those "one glimpse" and sounds in the night are not really outlook-changing for me. Those are part of my outlook, always have been, except the first glimpse lasted at least 3-5 minutes and covered roughly 550-600 yards of total travel beginning more than 100 yards to my left, moving 75 yards in front of me, and continuing away for 400+ yards to my right before going out of sight. That's not a glimpse. It is plenty of time to ask yourself questions, to weigh what you are seeing. Oddly enough, despite all else, I can't report any bone-chilling cries. "Whatever." So, w

  24. Let's say someone has developed an interest in sasquatching. They see things on TV and want to participate but, never having led an outdoor life, they ask themselves -- where do I start? None of my friends of family are believers. I think a BFRO expedition would be an awesome way to segue into that world. How is it any different than paying a photographer to teach you how to use a manual camera, a ski instructor showing you how to downhill ski, an artist teaching how to paint, or even an attorney for advice? We all have to begin somewhere and if no one in your life has any experi

  25. I think they’ve done more good for this subject than bad, inadvertently or not. The tv show was just that, a tv show, no more and no less. Moneymaker gets a lot of bad press, some of it maybe warranted, but you can never knock the guys passion for the subject itself, and I respect that in a person even if I don’t necessarily agree with all he says. Their database deserves a heck of a lot of credit and praise too, and for that alone they get my thumbs up personally.

  26. Some of the coolest things I've seen in the woods have been while turkey hunting. We turkey hunt by going out the previous afternoon and locating a flock, noting what areas they are feeding and traveling in, then seeing where they roost at night. Then, we pick a spot where we think they will go to in the morning and get there before light, set up a blind, or do a makeshift blind, and set up a couple of decoys. We are totally camouflaged, head to toe, and stay absolutely still since turkeys can detect the slightest movement at great distances. Then we just sit there dead silent a

  27. Hoaxers make field work more difficult. When you have to sort of what might have been done by humans and what was done by something else. I consider call blasting, making vocal calls, and making wood knocks nearly in the same category as hoaxing. It forces field researchers to have to figure out if humans are in the area making those sounds. Even worse than that, I have seen little evidence that it increases the chance of having visual contact with BF. Evidence seems to show that it just scares BF away once they determine that the sounds were made by humans. Another

  28. Yesterday, I went on a hiking adventure rather than a sasquatching one. I hiked with a buddy and we went up and over three mountains on a peninsula. The interior forest was a bit hazy as we started up the first one. Then, as you proceed from the first mountain to the second one to the third, you walk some of the way along a ridgeline, where you are treated to a view of both sides. The area is well known for its population of timber rattlers and if bitten there is no fast or easy way back to your car. That doesn't bode well. I've been hiking and backpacking many years and this hike

  29. Slipped my leash yesterday and got out into the field. Talk about social distancing, I never saw another human. The objectives were to visit my old research area and show my companion as many of the contact locations as I could. Both to add context to my encounters and look for any signs of present activities. I pulled into the road leading to the NEON site, and a large sign indicated that the area was now off limits due to the COVID 19 thing. Worried about something getting the virus? I wonder. What was puzzling was that I passed a popular county park getting there and

This truck has it all for getting out in the back country; 6" lift, custom heavy duty suspension, 37" AT tires on 20" rims, winch on custom front bumper, and LED lights every where! We had a dashcam and 2 go-pros running while on the trails, and cameras at the ready while out of the truck, but with nothing to show for it but some scenery shots. Our route took us into our restricted access area on the N side of the Fraser River, where we encountered more sn

I will share a fascinating story ( it is long but related to the metal sounds ) I was told by a partner/friend who remains in western WA at this time.

  36. I'm your Huckleberry... The first howl, and maybe two that follow are very squatchy. I think everything after is coyotes and dogs. I filtered out the high frequency noise, deleting everything above 2kHz. I amplified the middle frequency range about 36db so you can hear it. For good measure I boosted just the initial howl by another 5 db. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good considering I only worked on it for a few minutes. Adobe Audition is an awesome tool...

  38. Messing around with outdoor hardware and peeking are commonly reported when BFs come around homes. It's thought to be curiosity rather than aggression. Hopefully, he'll be smart and not resort to violence. Here's a list I found elsewhere. Light ’em Up Put up lots of lights up high –over 15 feet high, if you can manage–around the yard for night time. Put a wire cage around the bulbs because they will throw rocks or yank them off the wall. Even Christmas lights are useful. Strobes are good, too. Shine lights out from inside the house. All lights must be able to be switched

Trail is pretty rough, big loose rocks, some places stairsteps in the rocks, plus it traps runoff so it continually gets carved deeper. There is another way in, not as steep, but a mile farther and more exposure to direct sun .. hotter. There is no chicken out option. If you're not well on your way back to the trailhead 2 hours before dark, you are comm

He had said that the creature seen by himself and a companion that day in Oct of 2007 had crossed in front of their vehicle in daylight just at the Km 4 marker on the Harrison East FSR. It was seen to cross the road from the forested downhill side, and proceeded uphill through a recent clearcut, then cross the Slollicum FSR above the cut, and disappear into the old second growth timber above that road, a distance of about 250m (280yds).
