Heard two whoops today and some wood knocks. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I thought it might be loons but the 3 birds on the lake looked small for loons. I poked around while Wyatt fished. Caught all small rainbow…. 
 

Mystic lake, Moon lake, Browns lake.

 

We got kicked off Browns lake. Fly fishing only. 
 

We did see a 6 pt bull go out past us in a pickup. Oct 1st I will be heading back in for muzzle loader Elk. Big burn in there. Lots of grass.

That's great to get both whoops and woods knocks. Of course, they always happen when the sound recorder is off. Beautiful area and very promising as well. Do you plan on returning there?

 

It would be interesting to see if the whoops and wood knocks increased at night.

I was just taking pictures with my phone. My son heard the whoops.

 

Going hunting up there Oct 1.

 

Here is the lake.

I've been doing a bit of off-road riding on my 2022 KLR 650.  I hated this bike when I first bought it and thought it's only purpose was to kill older men like me who thought it would be fun to buy an adventure bike to feel young again.

 

I have since added a ton of accessories, more aggressive tires, and 700 miles on it mostly in the woods.  I am now comfortable on it and have taken it a couple of places that I shouldn't have, lol.

 

I added a Go-Pro camera and mount and have it running on a 3-minute recording loop in case a BF happens to show itself during a ride.  Nothing so far.

 

Last ride was up to Moscow Mountain where there was a sighting featured on Finding Bigfoot a few years ago.  Wildfires in the area produced too much smoke for there to be any long-distance sightings.

Planning on heading into the mountains for an impromptu overnight camping trip this weekend.  My plan is to take my 4Runner to a remote spot and just camp out of it.  I have a twin-size air mattress that I hope will be comfy with the rear seats folded down.  I used a tape measure and there is right at 6' of room.  I am 6'2", so figure sleeping at an angle will be fine.

 

It will likely get below freezing at the elevation I'm thinking of, so sleeping in the confined space of the 4Runner with engine heat available and in a good sleeping bag and thick comforter should be fine.

 

I will be absolutely alone, with no dog or girlfriend to keep me company.  Should be good for attracting the attention of any BF in the area.  I plan on sitting around a campfire, with a good whiskey, some good tunes on the satellite radio, and will have a Go-Pro and new Samsung Galaxy Ultra 21 phone at the ready.

 

I would love to hear some wolf howls, but a wood knock would be really cool.

 

I had a conversation with a co-worker about his BF experience when hunting a couple of years ago and he heard grunts, roars, and howls that he could feel in his gut.  He said whatever was making the noise was under 50 yards from his tent in the middle of nowhere in WA state.  

 

I would love to have a similar experience, but he was visibly shaken when recounting what he and his dad went through that night.  Just another BF witness that will never go public with their encounter and still unable to acknowledge that BF is real, despite their own incredible encounter.

Good luck and make sure you have some sort of defensive weapon handy. It is the season when bears are getting ready to hunker down, and the little buggers ARE hungry!
