I was a little surprised they took that feature away just because some people got upset about being downvoted.   I post what I believe, some agree and some do not.  They may choose to express their opposite opinion with a downvote or let it be known via a post.  Either way there is nothing wrong with disagreeing, adversity is good in an unknown field.   I can agree with a poster 100% in a topic about eye shine and then disagree with them 100% in regards to BF population.  Doesn't make them my best friend or my enemy in either situation.  It just shows we are two individuals forming differing or similar opinions on a shared subject.   The only certainty in BF is uncertainty at this poi

I agree with you 100% . Upvotes and downvotes do they really matter Not really . They only matter if you are looking for that type of attention . 

 

I have been trying to get back with Natfoot since we might not always agree but that does not matter to me. Since he has taught me some thing special and that is grammar and how to write out better sentences.  You have always corrected me and I have to thank you on that you arm chair  bigfooter. I still have a lot to learn  but give me time Natfoot and I will get better. You can keep mocking me all you want. But I have to warn you it just makes me stronger brother. Friend. :D

Wolfjewel, welcome to the premium section and thanks for supporting the forum, that way!

Thank you Incorrigible1! Here’s hoping we’ll hear from some new members with their experiences — dramatic or small doesn’t matter. I just want to know what their “aha” or “OMG moment was.

Good for you, my man!

 

That's a great attitude to have. We agree that votes don't really matter, but have an upvote from me for the way you approach this stuff.

Wolfjewel, thanks for raising the question about newbies with "experiences". I must admit that this one is second/third hand, but it helped to launch my insatiable interest in bigfoot many years ago. So here is the story:

 

It was summer time, and my sister (only sibling, older than me) and I were in the kitchen doing the dishes. (Yes, my parents got a dishwasher when we both went to college.) We had guests, all adults, who were gathered in the dining room around the corner from the kitchen. My sister and I were arguing about whether or not the dishes I was washing were clean (they were) when all of a sudden we realized the adults were whispering. If you have been in a situation where you hear a whisper, especially when it is unexpected, you know that hearing the sound seems to heighten your senses and tune your ears - you can't help but lean in and listen. The subject of the whispers was an unusual and upsetting event that had taken place east of Mead Nebraska. Apparently a farmer went out into his field in the morning to call in his dogs who were going crazy behind his barn. After calling and getting no response, he went around his barn, and found both of the dogs next to a dead cow. The cow had been gutted, the entails were missing, and there was no blood to be found. The kill had happened over night, as the farmer had brought all of the cows into the barn for some reason the night before. The adults were speculating about what sort of perpetrator could be responsible, and one of the men said he had heard at the barber shop that it was a bigfoot. One track was found near where the animal was found. The site was in a waterway, a 10-15 ft wide section of grass/weeds/whatever usually in a low spot or a transition area between crops. The one track was found at the edge of a cornfield. One of the craziest parts of the story was the dogs - loud enough to call the farmer behind the barn early in the morning, had been silent the night before.

 

My dad and his best buddy owned a dairy distributorship. As luck would have it, the farmer with the dead cow was a neighbor of one of my dad's customers. Of course the weekly stop at that customer's farm was extra long because of the need to discuss what/who could have been the cow's killer. The customer reported that folks all around the countryside near Mead were looking for more tracks, and there was all kinds of speculation about what might be the cause - aliens, cult members, and all sorts of other things, including our friend the hairy man. Dad's customer had heard from another neighbor that a family living on the river bluff had purportedly seen a very tall, very hairy creature running across the field below the bluff the week before. All of this information was very exciting to my sister and me, and I remember going to the library in town so we could do some "research".

 

Interestingly, when I became aware of the BFRO site (I don't remember when, frankly, several years ago?) I looked up sightings in Nebraska, not expecting much. I didn't find many reports, especially not anything exciting...except there was one report from Saunders County that involved a potential sighting east of Mead in Saunders County. Not sure that the dates match up, but it sure was interesting to read in light of the whispered story that I can still sort of hear in my head!

 

I hope some day to have a sighting of my own. In the mean time, I really appreciate the chance to learn from all of you.

 

It would be inappropriate for me to say this explains the weird cow event. I can't explain that. Anyway, thanks for the chance to type my story.

Unfortunately, sometimes the encounter is more than the witness wants.

I was ten years old in the summer of 1974 and my favorite movie was “The Planet Of The Apes”. I was thrilled to learn that in September of that year a Planet of the Apes t.v. series would arrive on CBS. I was fascinated by the special effects make-up of the apes by the master John Chambers. After enjoying a couple months of the new t.v. series, CBS aired a documentary called “Monsters! Mystery or Myth” about the Loch Ness and Bigfoot legends (at that point, I had never heard of either). I cannot tell you just how I felt watching the Patterson Gimlin beast march across that dry creek bed. I was amazed and dumbfounded. The sasquatch was so large and muscular, something that I had not seen in any of the Planet of the Apes movies. It felt to me, at that moment, that what I was seeing on the television was a real, living creature. For days I could not shake the images from my mind, and I walked away with the thoughts that the creature was some hulking deformed human that lived in solitude away from civilization that had shunned him (I thought of Patty as a male at the time as the documentary didn’t focus on or mention the breasts). Weeks later I bought a small paperback book from the school bookmobile entitled “Bigfoot: The Legend” and read it from cover to cover. Then, in 1976, Andre the Giant played a Bigfoot on the Six Million Dollar Man t.v. series and I remember being disappointed at the Hollywood sasquatch. Although tall and hairy, it didn’t look anything like the bulky, muscular Patty from the documentary, but did further my beliefs that this is a lone, freak of nature, that lived in solitude and hid from people. In 1977, Mr. Spock told me tales of the legend from the Pacific Northwest on the t.v. series “In Search Of”. So from 1974 to 1978 my interest was piqued in the Bigfoot legend until, in 1978, my family moved from the city and into the deep woods of rural North Florida. By eighth grade thoughts of Bigfoot waned as I became interested in the woods around me and the wildlife that surrounded our new home. Whitetail deer, Black bear, boar, racoons, opossum, rabbits, fox squirrels, bobcats were everywhere to be found and after a summer of mowing grass I was able to afford a Fred Bear Whitetail Hunter compound bow and aluminum arrows with razor sharp broadhead points for hunting. Bigfoot began to fade from my thoughts as I now had begun my own adventures stalking and hunting game with my bow and arrow in the woods and swamps of Northeast Florida. Now in junior high and on my way towards high school my interests where now completely occupied with girls and music and girls, and on the very few times that I heard mention of a Bigfoot, well, I had decided that the beast that Patterson filmed back in 1967 had to have died by now, and that would be the last of the “bigfoot” legend. Besides, that was in the Pacific Northwest and if any more creatures existed, they were not going to be found in my neck of the woods. I spent hundreds of hours walking through the woods stalking hogs and bucks, finding bobcat tracks (my brother eventually killed one), never, ever thinking about a sasquatch. Ever. I actually began to (because of lack of stories, sightings, and evidence) not believe in the legend of a hairy man-ape anymore.

 

 

Leaving high school to start my life and family I never ever thought about Bigfoot again. Then, on a spring night in 1994, at 29 years old, my wife and I, with two small children in the back seat asleep, were traveling north on A1A which is a coastal, two laned road winding along the coast near numerous beaches, at around midnight. There was no moon out but it was a clear night. I had the music playing and I thought that my wife was asleep as well. There were no other cars around, and I had just rounded the bend near the Big Talbot State park, which was a full beach access with camping areas, grills, picnic tables and dumpsters. A1A was about 200 yards west of the Atlantic Ocean.

 

 

Then, in the distance, I see what at first glance is a Park Ranger standing in the grass about 4 feet off the road to my left, his tan-brown uniform lit up by my high beams. Instantly, the form began to walk across the road toward the ocean. As I was driving about 70 mph I was closing on the subject rapidly. As I got closer, my mind went through a series of thoughts in about 4 seconds. It was as follows; “what is that park ranger (very tall park ranger) doing at this time of night?!” to “why is someone out here in the middle of nowhere with a Chewbacca suit on?” to “oh my God, what is that?!”. I had to slow down just so I wouldn’t hit it with my car. As it walked across the road (never looking at me, almost not even mindful of me), I got within 40 yards of it and came to a complete stop as I watched it cross me and walk right into the scrubby brush of the sand dunes (DuneBeast) and disappear. At that moment my wife (which I had assumed had been asleep) said “What was that?”. I said very slowly “I…don’t….know.” Then, she said “Was that a Bigfoot?”. And then at that moment, reality hit me and I was stunned. I answered to her “I guess so.” It was all surreal. I was almost in shock. I backed up the car and turned my headlights into the spot that it went into the dunes and pulled up as close to that spot as I could get. My car was now literally blocking the right lane of the road facing the bushes and dunes. I got out of the car and looked for footprints. My wife screamed “What are you doing? Get back in the car”. I started to walk up into the woods to see where it went when a cold chill hit me and I realized that I don’t want to come face to face with that huge thing in the dark…what would I do? I jumped back in the car, backed up and drove off. Looking in my rear view mirror it was pitch black…no streetlights at all. I drove home the rest of the way in complete silence….probably in shock. My wife and I never told anyone. I couldn’t believe that there was a Bigfoot type creature on the east coast, and in the south! The sighting haunted me for ten years until in 2004 someone told me about the BFRO. I made a report. My interest was now overflowing with the Bigfoot phenomenon. I started researching like crazy. The BFRO investigator told me about this site, and I joined here in 2004. I moved quickly up the rankings and enjoyed the forums every day. Eventually around 2008 I once again put the Bigfoot experience on the back burner as telling people only made me seem crazy. If my wife had not seen it also, I would think that I was hallucinating. But I wasn’t. The sighting still haunts me. I’ve been back to the site on many occasions, in the daytime, looking for clues. Nothing. This Bigfoot that we saw, it was very tall and very muscular, but lean, not bulky like Patty. Like a very large muscular basketball player covered in 4-6 inch light brown to tan hair. Anyway, after not being here in over ten years, I decided to rejoin (my profile had been deleted at some point I guess). So now I’m a Newbie again and look forward to hearing all I can about this legendary beast. Thanks for listening…here is the link to the BFRO report:
