It took us two days to figure out how to make a rock as warm as the ones that were thrown our way (armpit). Trying to hold them in your hands cannot do it......

 

......The warmth of the rock tells me they are carrying them (hopefully not in armpits) and tossing them when the time is right. In our situation they were not just picking them up on the spot. They are armed and ready

 

No doubt you have hung onto those rocks? They might be good candidates for some e-DNA testing?

I have three of them. The rest are distributed among the other people in my group. We did bag one without touching it but were unable to get temp from it inside the bag with the FLIR so we took it back out.

All have been handled extensively (contaminated) and I have no money for DNA testing anyway.

 

These two are from 2017. The little one actually hit me in 'the' place where I'd prefer not to be hit by rocks. Happy that the rock was so small...

Thanks, it was just a thought. The fact that the rocks were so warm is highly intriguing. To even think to test for temperature is genius, R-man. I will bet you were surprised they were so warm to the touch, eh? I sure would have been!

hah... no thinking was involved. I picked up a rock after it had been thrown on the bridge and it was warm. We spent the next few days wondering how and why it was warm. We can only speculate, but it tells me the rock had been held, just waiting for the right time to throw it.  These excursions always seem to leave more questions than answers. I think whoever or whatever is interacting with us a lot of times is just showing off how sneaky they can really be.

 

The incident in this clip has me totally baffled...

Just prior, we sent two team members down below the bridge  thinking they heard something. Before they went down, we lit up every part of the area under the bridge with bright flashlights at all corners. If something fled, we wanted to see it.

They go down, and find nothing. Looked around for tracks a little bit and only found ours. As they came back up we shut down the flashlights. At this point a stick comes in where the guys are coming back up and we hear splashes, like something running in the water. I was on the far end of the bridge away from this so I heard none of it, but my recorder was there to catch it. IF something was in the water we should have seen it while we had the whole area lit up.

No grouse here, also about 1 am. Just something odd that has also been reported by others who do audio, IIRC.

Redbone, if the databases show what I think they show then this could very well be Sasquatch's mating season?

Not here .. here, data suggests it is Aug 15 to Sept 15, a bell curve centered about Sept 1.    Since there is no secondary bump, I think they have a very near 1 year gestation period and the same annual gathering facilitates 2 functions, both mating and giving birth.    (I expect it 2-3 weeks earlier but the empirical data isn't cooperating with the theory.)

The idea of a mating and birthing season is a seductive one to be sure. A creature living in the wild would make use of the seasonal aspects where offspring is concerned. It seems to naturally make sense as a cycle whether BFs are closer to animal or not. Even Humans have the tradition of June weddings followed by Spring births even though weddings year round now are common.

Here's an answer to a question on a now locked thread.

2123353589_AudacityQuestion.thumb.jpg.b356d841051b07269b866e82502a8aff.jpg

To set Spectrogram settings in Audacity, hit "CTRL" "P", then select "Spectrogram" under "Tracks".

I have mine set up like this. If you don't have a powerful computer, you may need to select a smaller "window size" value or it will lag.

To see spectrogram on an audio clip, hit "Shift" "M" and then "Spectrogram"

I was listening to some older audio files and ran across this. It was from an over night recording in an area that has no large dogs.

I have found that I need to make some more of these microphones but it seems I never bothered to share the schematic like I said I would.

After nearly 2 years I had forgotten what I had done. Luckily I found my old notes and here it is. The components labeled in Red are the added low pass filter parts.

The caps labeled "?" mean I don't know, don't care what value they are. I do have ways to measure them, but it could be destructive so it's not worth the effort.

Interesting, Indie. Sounds like a dog, but moving pretty fast.

Here is an audio of something canine. Two howls in the beginning and then a lot more in the middle and end.  This was recorded by me in the blackness of night last August in an area that is very desolate with no civilization for miles. The howls proceeded to come toward my camp, then moved away, then returned once again.

 

The one thing I remember more than anything else when it happened is the howls were so forceful I was certain they would blow out the canine's lungs. You can hear that clearly in several of the howls which went on for about 6 minutes (less after editing).

 

Any thoughts what it is?

 

By the way,  mega-thanks to Redbone who took a raw sound file, cleaned it up, and increased the volume level.  Fantastic job and much appreciated.

It has a high harmonic sound on each vocal and is quite regular in tempo. I have recorded coyotes and they aren't similar. Only domestic dogs I hear are barks, not howls. Could it possibly be some kind of hunting hound?
