I remember Shamblin now...by Monster Hunter
Go to the below link, hold your nose and read...
I know Fairview, OK, very well. We have a wheat farm there. I find many inconsistencies in this story.
there are people who will actually belive this stuff! No wonder the bf field can't get any credibility from the public.
Geordon and I were out in my 99 Mercury Sable and checking on one of our favorite fishing holes when a Dodge Ram pick-up truck T-boned my car in the passenger side where Geordon was sitting. It blew out my back window and shattered the rest of the windows.My son's face was dripping blood from all over. He had what looked like a large hole over his right eye right below his eyebrow and many other lacerations on his forehead and blood in his mouth and he looked like he was having a seizure...it had to have been the worst thing in my life that has ever happened...here I thought my only son was dying. Oh dear God ...NO! I remember yelling and crying out for someone to call 911. The ambulance got there and they whisked me off to the local hospital...but I found out when I got to the hospital that my son didn't get sent there...they helicoptered him to the nearest trauma hospital. Oh dear God!!! A nightmare began....waiting for some kind of news if he was going to have a head trauma or even be alive yet. My poor husband having to hear this news about his son was almost too much to bear...then he heard my condition...that they may have to keep me overnight...the airbag deploying may have bruised my heart. I wouldn't be home to take care of him...(he's a quadriplegic and I'm his caregiver). My older brother takes care of my mother and has home health for her so he quickly got to work to have a nurse arranged to take care of my husband for me. They put me through everything...chest x-rays because my ribs hurt, they cat scanned my head for possible head trauma and my abdominal area to check on my liver damage. Not to mention all kinds of tests on my heart. My husband meanwhile was trying to find out some news about my son. We finally found out that he was in stable but serious condition in the ICU with forehead lacerations, 6 broken ribs, a broken clavicle bone, punctured lung that collapsed, and broken pelvis. The lacerations were bad to the point that they were waiting for a plastic surgeon to stitch him up. They had to sedate him because he was delirious and uncooperative...trying to pull out the tubes that they were putting in. My poor son! He has a learning disability and he didn't understand what had happened to him...and to make it tougher on me... I couldn't be there to console him. Meanwhile my night was only getting worst...they admitted me into a room that was semi-private with an older lady in the first bed that had a really bad cough and pneumonia, her IV monitor kept sounding off every 20 minutes all night, the nurse never seemed to notice my call light, she had to drag her IV pole with her to the bathroom each time and that made a lot of noise and just when I thought every was going to be quiet and I could possibly doze off her respiratory therapist came in for her treatment. After her treatment she laid there and coughed for a half hour and then the IV monitor started to sound again. About 5 o'clock while she was waiting for the nurse to come back to turn the dang noise off she flipped on the TV. Sometime after that I was able to pass out for 2 and a half hours before the breakfast trays started to get passed out. All this lack of sleep and stress CAN"T be GOOD for your heart....right?
Friends of ours meanwhile went to visit our son the next day and let us know that they woke him up while they were there ...it was nice for him to see familiar faces and he was calmer and let him know what had happened to me and that I would be traveling up to see him with my sister-in-law in her car since mine was now totaled. When my friends got back to town they helped me go over to were they towed my car (I had to get our glasses and some other things left in it)and....OH MY GOSH! I couldn't believe how bad it was...both doors on the passenger side where my son was had been sitting were bashed in over 2 feet and his seat got pushed around towards my side of the car. Well, I gotta go get some sleep now but if I can get the pictures of my car from my friend I will try and post them and all I can say is it has to have been a miracle he even survived the hit but he isn't out of trouble yet...he has to get through this yet some how now. Thank-you for listening and it's great to be home now...But we miss our son not being here. So if you could...say a little prayer for him for us....thanks so much!

Prayers sent Nellie...by Monster Hunter
As tragic as it was at least you and your son survived...be strong and trust in your faith...
I hate to see bad things happen to good people. Empathy and prayers headed your way.
according to the news report in the paper. I would like to get another vehicle this time that is a little heavier vehicle possibly a SUV, something higher up than a car with side air bags. Any suggestions on a good vehicle for me. I appreciate all suggestions. Thank you! Love you all.

Get a 1953 Buick...by Monster Hunter
I had one years ago Nellie...it's a tank...BTW...Before buying a SUV make sure and do a search on it...they all claim they're the best but some are not anything more than a tin can...
Yes you are in my prayers. Take care.
I will be praying for your son and you Nellie.
Healing is coming for you both!
Kim & I will be praying for him as well as for your continued healing! Please keep us informed.

I remembered this Jewel.
but this is my favorite
but this one has possibilities
I'm interested in everyone's thoughts & opinions.
I'd like to see a still and/or slow motion of the video.
For those who missed the episode of Cajun Justice...by Monster Hunter
Second episode from the left..."A Real Drag"...
and the guy sho nuff was terrified.
That poor man was shaking and it was awhile before the police showed up. I thought it was interestingabout the calf being mutilated a half mile away.
I believe he saw a monster. Would be interesting to get the video off his phone and enhance it a bit.
I don't know what the Loup-Garotte actually is but that was a great program. Those are some wonderfully crazy people living in the bayou! I missed the one about the human bone last night but will catch it Saturday.
keeping calm but carrying on!
GA Woodsby Grumpy
Heading into the woods today with another researcher for an all-nighter, hopefully things will get active even though it's going to be HOT....... will be looking for bedding areas in the bottoms near a lake.
West Point lake.. N/Tby Grumpy
I ope you get some good action!
Follow up,by Grumpy
A few possible markers, but around 1am we stopped walking maybe 200 yards above the shoreline after crossing a marsh area and after sitting for about 5 minutes we heard a Bionic Bird, I answered and it answered back, then another from a different direction and much lower in tone answered either us or the other, after several exchanges I think it/they figured it was a hairless one screwing with it and all calls stopped. This area is many miles from any residence or road. We hiked about 7 miles of up and downhill hiking.
Getting old,by Grumpy
And I must say I'm getting old.... my right hip was killing me on the up hill hike back to our vehicles.......
Hah! Serves you right for the time you dragged me through that unchrted cut-over at monster central that year! LOL Dag monkeys didn't see fit to hike through that stuff!
just take it easy sand don;t hurt yourself
It does appear that Bob...by Monster Hunter
Was so exhausted he didn't take any pictures to share...my excuse...I just plum forgot...
No there was just nothing IMO that we haven't seen before and it was DARK for most of the time we were in the woods...... LOL The date on the stone marker was 1856 and it was an old grave site.
of the two Bionic Bird conversations since after pushing through some thick brush the cable to my recorder and bionic ears was pulled out and all recordings stopped about 15 minutes prior to the calls...... although the look on my partners face, who had never heard this before, was priceless.
That in itself was worth the trip! Might not be anyone now...but folks lived there way back. Folks lived everywhere way back, of this I am convinced.
Dang Bob, we are all getting older. I wake up with aches in places that I can't explain........Must be some really nasty dream!
My girlfriend and I spent this past weekend hiking in Minnewaska State Park in the southern Hudson Valley of upstate New York. After hiking about 2 hours on Sunday, June 24th, we stopped for lunch at a spot called Millbrook Mountain. This "mountain" is actually a high point along a very impressive limestone cliff called the Shawangunk Ridge, a popular destination for mountain climbers.
Within a few minutes of settling down in our chosen spot, I became a aware of an interesting dark patch about 150 feet or so to the north of us. As the dark patch didn't move, I didn't think it could be a black bear. I realized I should take a few pictures of the area and have the luxury of scrutinizing the photos later. These are those photos:
I mentioned this dark patch to my girlfriend who saw nothing unusual about it. I stood up and moved toward it but didn't get very far due to the terrain. I did not notice any change in the position of the dark patch while I moved toward it. In fact, I lost sight of it and the picture (not posted here) I took from my new location did not include the dark patch in question. I returned to my original location and ate the second half of my sandwich. I joked to my girlfriend "there's a hairy biped over there waiting to see what we leave behind." She responded to the effect of "Oh, brother!"
I regret not having a set the digital camera to a higher resolution as the blown up images become pixilated just as they become interesting. The best zoomed images are on the camera itself. In fact, my girlfriend admits there's a "person" in the pictures. She assumes it's another hiker.
I respect the members of the GCBRO and have always found the discussions on the message board intelligent and informative. I'm hoping to have another pair of eyes look at this "blob" and tell me what they see.
This is the best I could do...by Monster Hunter
I can see a shape but like you I really can't say exactly what it is...
. . . an extended arm. Following the arm to where the shoulder should be, I think I see part of a face. It looks a bit like the right side of a gaunt, gray, face in 3/4 profile. The face has, to my eye, very pronounced cheekbones (there's a glint that makes it stand out in the shadow) and deep set eyes, a sharp nose, and a rather small, tight mouth. I think if I had set the camera's resolution higher, I might've had something here.
Thanks for giving it a look, Jim.
I can see what you see...by Monster Hunter
But without a comparison picture it's hard to tell exactly what you have there...it is interesting and I for one appreciate you sharing...
Im not sure I can't tell
You'd think the flooding we are having in the upper Manatee River watershed would push the monsters toward higher ground and therefore make them come out of their low swampy areas(and hence easier to find). Spent all day today going around to all my areas to check for tracks, signs of moving, sounds of communications. Saw bunches of small critters fleeing the flooding, but not one sign of any monsters. Clouds and rain made it cooler but harder to hear much, Torrential rains made it hard to see many tracks of any critters. Still, it's hard to get through much of the dense jungle and undergrowth so I was hoping the flooding would provide an opportunity to condense them to higher ground, and there,s not much of that in this area. It's been a while since any reports or sightings have occurred in my general area, may have to try a new area, further south towards Big Cypress.
Yeah...you are getting pounded in Florida...by Monster Hunter
Monsters may have found themselves a dry spot and plan on holding tight until this storm pushed through...I think I would spend some time after the storm when it's beginning to dry...Interesting so keep us informed...
i cant hot link sorry.
very interesting read.
This is an interview with the author/researcher (Part II). You'll be able to find part I and other related videos on the subject.
I found this a few months ago (I don't recall where/why/how I first heard about this subject) and - assuming all is legit research, etc. - the mystery disappearances are creepy and somewhat disturbing.
-Mike in NC
Interesting to say the least...by Monster Hunter
But I can tell you for fact...what I have seen looks like some type of ape...and I have had my fair share of sightings...could it be some type of human?...possible I would think but the bastards here look like an ape...and I do agree with his assumption...they cannot be trusted...there are reports from NA tribes of this Monster kid napping their children and women...men...maybe they are cannibals?...
It wouldn't surprise me if this were a real danger with monsters. First Nation men will actually escort females around the reservation when they think monsters are in the area.
Do First Nation people keep records of the missing? Or, because First Nation men escort women when monsters are active as stated is that the reason why few disappear?
When I read the part about people disappearing in the middle of a group of people I immediately thought about the Readheaded Gal in Ark a few years ago.
BOOOMmm she was gone.
dogs wouldn't even track.
the dogs knew something.
I listened to the youtube vid and I was stunned by the amount of info this guy had.
THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!!!!!
In case you didn't come across it.......lots more stories from the author.......
-Mike in NC
Wow. Look at the landscape where these clusters are. That's creepy.
I've reported on many occasions...by Monster Hunter
the Monsters would come around the ladies homes when there were not any men...sitting on Ms. Francis back porch the Monsters would creep up, sit in the tall weeds, watch the ladies as they drank coffee...both ladies have taken pictures of these Monsters that come to their homes...
Years back an older lady came up missing without a trace of anything...she lived in a rural area and as far as I know she didn't have any mental disabilities...just disappeared...gone...folks in and around here searched for months...I know of several older ladies that have disappeared over the years that lived in rural areas...no idea if they had any mental problems...
I haven't associated any person missing because of Monsters but I have always been cautious leaving my boys when younger alone deer hunting...you can bet I wasn't far and I always stayed in and around my pickup...I could be anywhere they hunted within a minute or two...always made them hunt in tripods off of the ground...remained in the tripod until I came to get them...even then they would have experiences...poor Jake stayed mad...every time I left him he said the Monsters were always around whistling, screaming or doing something that interfered with his hunt...
One late afternoon he shot a deer in a cut over...we searched for a few hours without any luck...went back the next morning and couldn't find the deer...a few days later we go back with Jake wanting to hunt this same cut over...within feet of his stand was a deer that was eaten...
There was the elderly woman who was driving back to my area after visiting her husband in a nursing home in town. They found her SUV parked on a well site out in the woods, and only her tracks leading into the woods. No signs of foul play, as her purse and lots of money was found in the car. It's like she just vanished into thin air. The sheriff's dept and search parties combed the area for days. There were posters all through the county. The local deputies say it still gives them the creeps, they can't believe they couldn't find her.
i know first hand, some of them have learned how to poach a deer off a hunter, unless sometimes if you drop it in its tracks.....if it runs, I think they can watch you, and beat you to it....
Steve had a deer stealing incident...by Monster Hunter
some years back...wife shoots a deer...deer runs off the right a way...Steve and his uncle go in to find the deer...they have an experience with a suspected Monster taking the deer...
ok mr jim i dont want to get eaten and drug off by the bf so lock and load its time for them to go

did you hear about the number of instances only one tooth was found?
what are the odds of finding 1 tooth in the wilderness.
that some of them take their clothes off, even in hostile temperatures...hmmm
Myself, Ken Iddings, and Don Monroe recently completed an expediton into the Bluff Creek area, particularly the Patterson film site. Don was not able to make the hike in as he had a recluse spider bite on his ankle that was too bad for him to participate. Ken Iddings from Alaska, and me hiked the entire way in due to locked gates on the road entering the area. On the way in, I was walking and looking down when I heard some breathing ahead of me. It was a bear at very close range. I yelled "bear" and he looked up at me for a second and then leaped off the road and down the hill. I had a camera around my neck and didn't even come close to getting a photo. Here's the URL for part 1.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oylecuxCN8 M.K.
Good stuff and...by Monster Hunter
beautiful country...BTW...for those who watched check out the other video of MK and his mid tarsal break...
They've done it again!
Greg Brady and Danny Partridge vs. a 20 foot Bigfoot!
ANyone know if we are planning an outing anytime soon? BBQ, Marathon Lake again, MC, anything? I'd like to go somewhere for a weekend and meet some more of yall b4 I hafta start school this Fall. Louisiana for a weekend sounds REAL good to me.
This time of year Ms Mike...by Monster Hunter
The heat takes the fun out of a get together...100 degrees today and 102 forecast for tomorrow...when it cools off we can talk outing...
The BBQ stuff has kind of gone by the wayside.
I just checked the progress of the tropical storm and it looks like it's heading your way now instead of towards Texas. Man, have we had rain! Take care and be safe.
Totally makes sense. 99 here yesterday! I wonder if the Southern Bigfoot has shorter thinner hair to deal with our hot weather than their Northern cousins? Hmm. Gotta be miserable.
I was watching the TV show Cajun Justice last night and saw a preview for the next show. On Thursday (06-28) the deputies are going to respond to a "monster" call. The calling party recorded the encounter on his cell phone and was showing it to the deputies. Thanks.
What time is that particular show on? I checked the listing and there are 4 half hour shows back to back...one being a show where some lady's horse's mane is mysteriously being braided by something...is that possibly the same show you're referring to? In any case I have them set to record..thanks for the heads up.

I watched some Cajun Justice...by Monster Hunter
The horses mane being braided?...Interesting...next week, Thursday night, according to what I saw will be the episode of the man videoing something strange running off...
That is the first I hear of this show. I don't watch much TV. Watched one episode on the internet last night and I must say out of all of the Cajun shows that have popped up lately this one is probably the best in that it doesn't make us Cajun folks all look like a bunch of idiots.
I agree Ken...by Monster Hunter
I watched a few episodes last night and it does appear like a good program...
I saw that episode of the "Lutin". The lady said that there was no way that one person could have braided all three horse's manes in the 30 minutes she was in her house......She may be right BUT.... How about the possibility that there were THREE people braiding at the same time????? And that was more than likely the comotion she heard before coming out to her stables. And her favorite horse was sweating because the horse lives in South Louisiana where it stays freaking HOT around the clock!!! I would have told her so too!
I could not be on that show.....
Why would three people or kids...by Monster Hunter
Braid the mane of the horses?...
And why weren't the other two horses sweating?...
I do think I have the answer and the person responsible...the producer...
that or the horse owner heard they was filming that night and wanted to be on TV!
Probably a simple explanation...by Monster Hunter
that could involve all of those "involved"...
I know the father of one of the assistant producers for the show! I'm trying the get the skinny on the Louc Garou episode coming up! If it's anything, me and 30-30 and Geronimo may have to go have a look see!
to my theory. SOMEBODY was responsible for the horses new mane do. I do believe that the owner did not know about the horses being part of the "show". My wife told me that most of the shows are re-enactments of actual police complaints. If that's the case, they have some pretty good actors on the show.
some ghost manipulated rubber bands on the braids. If a Loo-loo had braided that mane, they would not have been able to secure them with bands. Ghosts don't have fingers and the only ghost I believe I actually saw was a human-shaped mist. Nope, done by a prankster or by the lady herself to get her five minutes of fame. Should have left the rubber bands off those braids, though.
If you look closely....the braids have been banded (rubber bands)simple braids like that shown on the horses only take a few minutes per horse, 5 minutes per horse at the most,lol.
Also the sweat pattern on the horse would match a western saddle pad or bareback pad.
JMO, someone looking for attention (stable owner), or producers trying for the WOW factor, lmao!
Thanks for the post...by Monster Hunter
Sounds as if you have some knowledge about horses...
Wanted to say I have heard about the braiding associated with Bigfoot but when I stopped the vid.and looked at the braids they allhad rubber bands at the end.i was like I do
n't think so.lol
Here is a screen capture from the Patterson film that has a good angle on the posterior of the subject. It is a "raw" image. I encourage everyone with an imaging program to right click on the photo and simply boost the contrast and brightness until posterior detail shows. Nothing more, just contrast and brightness. Post here what you see. This image is from a version of the film owned by the late Rene'Dahinden. M.K.

Listen to the below...by Monster Hunter
If that's legit, it sounds like he got REALLY close!
Have any of you BF veterans ever heard anything like this?
Aren't these BFs letting the kid get too close? Seems very bold of them.
On a side note, what kind of video/documentary/etc. was the kid trying to create? More of the background story might help decide if this is legit, or a crafty hoax.
I think I hear two people "walking away" at the end of the audio. Does anyone else pick up the odd number/pacing of steps? Assuming there is a second person, was it just an error on the part of the person posting the audio to not mention that? (Worst case scenario, the second person is playing the sounds to be recorded on the audio and then reported as crypto/BF sounds?)
After paying a little more attention I see the kid's project was to record sounds at night. I find that kind of "fishy", unless the kid was very young. How much "research" needs to be done to record crickets, coyotes, and owls?
Also, am I hearing crickets while the howling is going on? Isn't it a general "rule" that insects shut up when monsters are around? Or, is the "silent treatment" optional?
I still find it odd that BFs would broadcast their positions so close to a human intruder, unless (assuming this is legit) the BFs were actually attempting to frighten off the intruder.
I hate to be such a stick in the mud, but when 1, 2, 3 things seem out of phase with the story and generally accepted/recognized BF behavior, my Spidey sense starts asking questions.
-Mike in NC
Whatever it was sounded pretty big.
It almost sounded "Howler monkeyish".
Never heard a monster do that beforel but I cannot rule it out either.
Either he has some awesome audio gear or it sounds like it's digital. I do know that if I was out in the woods and heard that, I'd have to clean out my drawers LOL
It's a pretty good recording. Maybe too good.
So if I understand this recording; the student walked out to an area and stumbled upon this conversation between two unknown creatures.
1. While the student is walking he does not snap a twig or step on a bunch of leaves. it sound like he is walking over the same type of ground the whole time. It sounded like he was he was "walking" over cereal the whole time at a quick pace.
2. So the "creatures" did not hear his approach?
3. The "creatures" sounded like they were facing the same direction the whole time they were communicating.The only sounds the creatures make is this growling/barking rough scream? Maybe they were howling at the student. No echo or sound carrying in the distance? But the amplification of the sound (acoustics) were awesome! Just like if they were in a room!
4. This student walks out to an area, hears creatures that are obviously larger than he is and he says nothing?? not even a "WTF"?
5. The creatures just stop howling as he leaves?
6. It sounds like there is more than one student "walking" away from the creatures.
7. The back ground "crikets" sound too perfect and like the volume was turned up after the student begins to leave.
What kind of recording equipment was used. I did not hear the normal sounds of gear/clothes rubbing while the student was walking. I'm not convinced that this was actually recorded out in the field. This sounded like a recording studio project. It reminded me of the old time radio shows. And I have heard plenty of them working the midnight shift with my XM radio.
Same thing I was thinking as I was laughing listening to this, sounded like an ole time radio program.
In an interview, you said that after that monster screamed at you years back at MC, that the woods "came alive" and it sounded like chimps at the zoo,,, does this sound similar to what you heard?
What I heard was a roar Rick...by Monster Hunter
I've never been to Africa but it sounded like a huge African lion roaring at me...the volume was darn near deafening but what was interesting was I could feel the sound...After the roar is when it sounded like a zoo full of chimpanzees...this went on for a few seconds then it got quiet...not a sound from anything...a few minutes passed I would think before the tree frogs and insects began their chirping...
Personally I haven't heard anything like the above...
"I've never been to Africa but it sounded like a huge African lion roaring at me...the volume was darn near deafening but what was interesting was I could feel the sound.."
I have heard this on 3 occasions....one of them being at MC.
And yes, you can "feel" the sound.
Wasnt that the night you armed the monsters? Lol
Figured that way they could wake Craig up when they walked by.....
Dont know if thatd even work. That was the night i jumped onto barrys arms when he saved me n bobby. We were whooped from toting those stands
to find that 9mm someday.....lol.....
I have a hundred yard idea of where it's at...
I've looked...by Monster Hunter
Haven't found it yet...
Them briers were so sticky it could have been dang near anywhere. It all looked different in the daylight...and I bet it all looks real different now.
Sorry about that.
When you said that you could feel it reverberating in your chest.
The chimp sounds that you heard after the initial roar.
Question answered, thanks Jim.
The insect sound is at exactly the same level all the way through the audio. This would not happen if a person was walking closer or further away from the source of the sound. In other words the background noise should change as he was walking.
There is also a lot of reverberation on the calls. If they were that close a similar reverberation would be heard from both however, the call on the right has way more reverberation than the first call or the call on the left.It sounds like the calls were made in a cave...When I hear the calls my bullometer cranks off the scale.
Others have pointed out some inconsistencies with the walking and I think they are correct. I would add that the walking seems to be at the same level all the way through just like the background (insect) noise. Each step would fall slightly differently making a difference in volume depending upon the debris and makeup of the walkway. The walking sound is way to consistent and when there are obviously two walkers the sound is still consistently at the same level.
there are two people walking. Probably one is recording and the other is playing the calls right beside him. Ya can't trust anyone under 30!
To me it sounds like 2 people trying to mimc calls, one is uphill and one is down. Every call I've ever heard record has a steady gutteral, deep sound it doesn't break off at the end and sound human, which this does from both callers.
The two critters I heard talking to each other sounded like pure gibberish...I was unable to make out one clear word. But their vocals did have inflection and emotion as they were being delivered. It definitely wasn't just screaming back and forth. These things were having a conversation like you and i would, but for the life of me I just couldn't grasp any type of word. These recordings sound kinda far-fetched.
Gibberish is the best way I know to describe it...
I've heard it many times and can't put one recognizable english word to it. And growing up in Indian territory hasn't helped me recognize a native word either......
But, yes definitely a conversation of "gibberish"...
Nothing like this..

Today the buzzer went off with the person holding the buzzer down...an employee opened the door finding a lady in her mid thirties...she asked if she could help the lady with the lady telling her that her child was half melon and half android...without missing a beat the employee told her they didn't represent androids or melons...
some scary folks out there
My business is on a fairly busy street in a questionable part of town and we have people come up daily to the door for all kinds of reasons
(50% nefarious, probably)
we normally keep the door locked now because of it. Both my office manager and I have had to resort to showing firearms on numerous occassions to help the individual use the judgement to leave immediately. we are pretty lucky TPD normally has a unit close.
I have a busy Fire Dept House about a block away. a few months ago, one of the Firemen got up to utilize the "facilities" about 2 AM and as he walked from the bunk room to the Bath Room he walked by the kitchen area and noticed something out of place. He did a double take in regards to the Nekkid black man with aluminum foil wrapped around his shoulders like a cape holding a pistol in one hand and machete in the other.
the guy jumped up from the table and ran out the door before they could make any sort of arrest. (they said later on that 50% of the guys there that night are Reserve City TPD or County Sheriff).
TPD was never able to find the guy that night. so he is still running around the neighborhood. everyone calls him the Zulu.
Her office is in a more or less business district...by Monster Hunter
Just some weird folks travel in the area...seems like anytime I'm there outside someone is asking for something...
business area with "Little Beirut" on the horizon.
Screamerville Road...by Monster Hunter
Actually Screamerville was one of the first settlements in NW Louisiana...a small village in Desoto Parish that disappeared over the years but the road, Screamerville, is still there...I've been up and down this dirt road more then several times...talked to more then several folks living on this road and not one knew how this small community now road got its name...
Here's the story...years back in the 1750's a small community was established...it received its name from the screams the people heard on a regular basis thinking large cats were the culprits...no one seemed to ever know exactly why these large cats screamed on a regular basis and to my knowledge, no written records, not one large cat was ever killed for evidence of a supposedly large population of the hairy screaming critters...and I do know large cats, cougars, are not really family oriented other then female raising cubs and then they travel within 10 to 100 miles for food, shelter, breeding etc...
There is a road that runs fairly close in proximity, within a few miles that I'll not mention, that has had Monsters reported being seen crossing the road, walking the creek reported by hunters, following a dairy hand walking to work early AM...one man told me he saw three huge black panthers walking the tree line next to the creek one late afternoon...he also told me something large jumped from an embankment slapping the hood of his pickup before disappearing in the dark...personally I've heard Monster locating whistles and calls...I haven't seen any Monsters, property is all private or leased I assume since the gates are all locked...
Years back a man from Shreveport, a writer for the now defunct Shreveport Journal...his goal was to find, follow and map the Civil War routes used in Desoto Parish...while doing his hobby crossing miles of forested, thickets and open fields he noticed that it appeared something was always following him...he could hear walking behind him, strange whistles and calls, odd stench where nothing was dead...as he continued his work one day he had a sighting of a Monster that was following him...this man, I can't think of his name, damn CRS, made a short documentary on the subject of BF and yes at one time I had a copy Bobby made me so I'm sure Bobby still has his copy...
He didn't mention where he had his sighting but I do know these trails he followed came within shouting distance of MC before going south through the old Screamerville community continuing on to Mansfield...his hobby of trail finding makes me think that maybe the screaming that was heard back in 1750's could have possibly been Monsters and not large fur balls as thought...continuous screams over a long period of time doesn't seem like cougars but there was an area east of where I grew up that folks reported black panthers screamed on a continuous basis...I'm not a cat man gathering my information on the Internet but maybe we have a reader or forum member that can weigh in on the subject of large cats, screams and territory...
The Powell Bottom just east of me has been the location of many big cat sightings over the years. I saw a few there myself. Of course, there is the big cat that frequented our place for years. We saw him a few times. It used to periodically scream all the time. Then, for about ten years, we stopped hearing the cat screams. Then, out of the blue, I got that game cam photo of that big cat crawling through my east fence.
Pretty neat right there

Looks just like a danged old...by Monster Hunter
gorilla IMO...how and why this beast is there...no idea...
The creators of the video show pictures and the context makes a person think it is in the garden, but really the picture with the beast could be anywhere, even a zoo. Plus the tiny outer ear is a dead give away for the gorilla. The picture I have of a female monster shows a much larger outer ear even though it appears to sit almost as high (ear canal almost even with the eye socket) on the head.
Looks like a gorilla.
alot like the gorilla enclosure at metro zoo in miami
I think that's what it is too.
The 'radio show' is obviously fake, but...
It is a gorilla. I have several libraries of stock footage and that image comes from one of the libraries. I remember seeing it and I have it around here somewhere. It's actually, as i recall, from a video clip of a gorilla.
Good find though, but it is fake. :\
The picture looked like one that has been passed around before. It's a nice picture of a gorilla.
Send me an e-mail I dont have yours anymore! Its about the swamp justice show coming this week! Might be something we could look into!
your bellsouth.net email and it was returned. Here is my email; firstname.lastname@example.org
I am going to record that show. I'll go down and look for the Rugaru with ya!
I've always thought this film was hoaxed and I still do. In the not to distant future we will be hearing about a claim that the suit has been found and it's gonna be interesting to see how that plays out.
Although there are certain aspects of that film that I don't embrace as truth, I still believe that it is a real creature.
The proportions are all wrong for it to be a human in a suit, nobody on earth could possibly be built like that.
The shoulders are way too wide, the arms too long and the speed and ease with which the subject crosses the area, a hot bulky suit would slow him down considerably.
There is also the issue of being able to see the muscles move and contract under the fur.
Back in those days the most advanced "Ape suits" were on planet of the apes.
Make no mistake about it however, the existence of Bigfoot does not hinge upon the validity of the PG film, they are out there so it just stands to reason that eventually somebody would get lucky enough to get one on tape or film or video or whatever.
I once said on the MB--for it to be a man wearing a costume, the costume needed to be glued to every inch of the man's body to make muscles move the way they do in the PGF. A hollywood make-up/costume artist "claimed" he made the suit but then denied it on his death bed. There probably was a costume of some sort, just not the one Patty was filmed wearing, in my humble opinion. So, I also politely disagree with Terry's contention that the entire film was hoaxed. M.K.'s results of his examination of the film convinced me Patterson filmed a living animal filmed, who was probably killed and skinned...maybe more than ONE living animal, if you look at the parts of the film never shown to the public.
And the icing on the cake HAD to be the walking angle measurements-just not really able to be faked IMO.
Have you read all the post's M H has done on this subject? If not ; please read and then post.
I've been comming around here a long time. Jim and I don't agree when it comes to the Patterson film. Come to think of it, I shoulda bet him so I could come down and collect! It would be great to see that part of the country.
I'm sure Jim could use the extra cash.
He sounds like a good candidate for Boudreaux's bottoms!
Ahhh for the good old days.
Here's a bit of interesting information for the Patty skeptics...by Monster Hunter
That guy hit the nail on the head!
POSSIBLY the impossibility of the angle being able to be faked! Case closed I do believe.
T and I go way back and I mean way back...by Monster Hunter
At one time he was to come to MC...something happened and I just hope it wasn't fear...T is a skeptic and rightfully so and it's good to know a man is not swayed because of what other folks claim or have seen and reported...I do have an area of interest that could possibly change his mind but then again maybe not...years back Boudreaux's bottom would have made him a believer...day time it was just another bottom...night time...Monsters didn't take kindly to visitors...
Though I know damn well he can see the Monster the skeptic side of him tells him differently...T is always welcome around my camp fire...
I'm not skeptical so much about the existance of bf nor would I ever want to come off sounding like that. I know many of the members here have seen a bf so that's that. I am guilty of being the devil's advocate though and when I see photos or hear accounts of possible encounters, I think it's fair to voice opinions of what else it could have been, especially when we see folks who are new to the field and don't know their wildlife species, etc.
With the Patterson film, I've heard every argument made by both sides. What does it for me is the integrity of many of the people involved at the time. It wasn't very good at all and there is history leading up to the film. Consequently for me, they were just damn lucky that the film, in it's simplicity, turned out as good as it did. I'm the first to admit that I could be wrong but that's my opinion.
just got back from the hospital, hurts like hell and really sucks...however, I'd like to get another expedition in the works...something for september location is i dunno...most squatchy place around
Wow, I guess it could've been worse! Just sold my bike about a month ago and really miss it!
Sorry to hear that! I fell directly on my tail bone once when I was a kid (on a really hard surface). Don't think I've ever felt pain like that in my entire life - so I'm feeling your pain
If there's going to be an organized search, or just an annual pow-wow, this year - let me know. Am going to make an effort to finally meet some of you face-to-face. Would make for a fun road trip
-Mike in NC
I broke, rather let me describe it accurately, shattered my tailbone when I was 14 or 15. By the time I was 21 I was having surgery to remove a pilinoidal cyst which was growing there and putting toxins in my system. Keep an eye on your butt, if over the next year or so you develop what looks like a drainage hole, get thee hence to the doctor and get checked out for a cyst. DO not let it go as long as I did. I didn't tell my folks until I was 19 going on 20...keep it checked.
Keep the shiny side up...by Monster Hunter
or pick asphalt out of your butt, hands, arms and elbows...as bad as it hurts it could have been worse...hope you heal fast and can be back in the woods in a timely fashion...
Jim, I know I told you I'd have those images & distances done for you so the size of the monsters in the pics you had could be calculated, and I'm sorry that I haven't delivered yet. You guys prayed last fall when my dad was diagnosed with cancer, and after just a few chemo treatments, there was no sign of it except 1 small spot in his lungs. A couple of weeks ago they ran some tests because he kept complaining with back pain. It was a new doctor to look at some other aspect of his body, and they had not done any tests on his back because he has had back problems all his life. Well, it turned out that his spinal column was eaten up with cancerous cells. They set him up for chemo again. My youngest sister called Monday & said he had to go to the ER Sunday because he thought he had pneumonia. It turns out that he had a collapsed lung. They put him in ICU & his cancer doctor did some more tests before starting treatments. The cancer was in his spine, his lungs, his pancreas, his liver, and his brain. I'm sure I'm missing some other areas. Oh yeah, there is a tumor on the front of his neck, about where you would do a tracheotomy. They decided to call in hospice, and they all agreed not to inflate his collapsed lung, but to send him home Tuesday morning & let him spend his last few days with his family while home hospice people made him comfortable.
Of course we left MS heading to St. Augustine, FL as soon as we could make arrangements, which was Tuesday morning. My little sister called while we were on the way and said they were not sending him home, and he probably only had a few hours left. We got that call when the belt broke on our excursion and we were stuck for a couple of hours getting going again. He opened his eyes when we got to the hospice center and acted like he knew me & understood what I was saying, but he has not opened his eyes or responded to anything since, and I know he is caught between letting go and fighting. We sat there today watching him die, not knowing if it would be today or next week. I'm rambling, I know, but this is hard. I need y'all to pray for my dad and my family. His name is Joseph O'Steen, his wife (my step mom) is Chris, I am Shawn (wife Kim)and I am the oldest, my sister Andie Young (husband Rod) is next, then 1/2 sister Mandie Stevens (Jason), and 1/2 brother Patrick. We're all tired and weary. What a heck of a father's day memory this will be.
Thoughts and Prayers,by Grumpy
Surveyor, I'm sure I speak for both myself and all your friends here at GCBRO in saying our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family during these difficult times. I am glad you got to the hospice center to see your dad and always remember all the good times with him during your life. Take comfort in the fact that all his pain and suffering will soon be over and he will finally be pain free.
Prayers sent for your family.
definitely keep your whole family in our prayers. Sorry you are having to go thru this it is very hard.
My dad passed away at 4:25 this morning. Thanks for all the prayers and support.
Sorry to hear this. .......
My prayers are with you and your family.
but I'm still praying, too but now for your family.
God bless you!
I feel your pain...by Monster Hunter
Words cannot express the sorrow of losing your dad, mother or a child...
A bit late but my condolence well.
So I know what you are going through.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, and it does get a little easier with time.
I am sorry to hear about your father. You and your dad are in my prayers and thoughts. The hospice workers I have met are truly angels. Gary's dad died in Houston Hospice last fall and the nurses and staff there were as good to us, as we held vigil beside his bed, as they were to Dad. I have the highest regard for hospice workers...lovely people!
I rarely post on any message boards, and to keep from getting angry I rarely read any on all the various sites I surf. But I just wanted to add, although I have seen serious disagreements on this board, overall most everyone here are polite and act like adults. On many news sites and BF sites like BIGFOOT EVIDENCE, a person cannot simply make a comment without a bunch of adolescent jack holes berating someone. You can disagree but there's no reason to be rude. And my worst pet peeve are people who don't believe in BF but have no better way of spending their time than slamming believers on message boards for the BF community. Anyway thats my rant. Thanks for all the interesting discussions.

Here on our forum Jason...by Monster Hunter
Most of our posters have been using this forum for years...many of us know each other personally and take the subject seriously...as far as skeptics...everyone has to be something...to a skeptic...ignorance is bliss...
The problem skeptics have IMO...they want evidence that supports these creatures exist...their rants include no bones, clear pictures, etc...my rant...tell me what the hell I along with many have seen over the past 100 years?...we have collected tracks, scat, hair and we do have some compelling pictures...DNA comes back as an unclassified primate...the only thing we haven't successfully collected is a specimen...hopefully that will happen in the near future...
Personally I thumb my nose at skeptics...let them wallow in their ignorance...besides...I have nothing to prove to anyone let alone a skeptic...
I have also been a somewhat silent follower for the past 10+ years and also appreciate the professionalism and respect that this group's members exhibit. I read the board every day and have gained allot of knowledge over the years. Keep it up guys....I hope this group is the one that will finally put all of the skeptics down with undisputable evidence that "BigHairy" lives.
Best group of people I've ever met and been associated with!
After watching a few of the Fact or Faked series...it strikes me that these folks are just a different form of Myth Busters. All they seem to worry about is their gadgets and gizmos, and who gets how many speaking lines in one episode or series! Probably gonna have to miss the rest! Thoughts?
My question...by Monster Hunter
Who in their right mind would submit anything for them to investigate?...I watched a little last night and was impressed that a few good old boys from MS. used a Tesla generator for one of their ghost pictures...Genius...unfortunately they were hoaxers but I do applaud their collective efforts...
They never research the paranormal shows that have already debunked or investigated the videos they selected and all UFO videos bore me! I also do not like to watch their stupid attempts at replicating videos and also, no one is going to admit on national television that they have hoaxed the video being checked out. So, I watch something else until the last half of each part of that show (they usually investigate 2 videos) to see what they discovered about the video. All the other follerol is boring to me.
That said, I AM grateful to "Fact or Faked" for debunking the Villa Main Road ghost children who allegedly push vehicles across railroad tracks there. Supposedly children killed in a train/bus accident are the ones who do the pushing.They researched that bus/train accident and found it happened in Seattle not San Antonio. Geography is the reason why cars, buses,trucks roll up to and over the train tracks. Villa Main road actually slopes downward over 45 degrees and an optical allusion prevents one from seeing the slope. They brought surveying equipment to test their theory and sure enough there was a downward slope causing cars to roll, as if pushed by invisible hands.
THAT was a great show because IF I'd heard it said once, I'd heard it said a 100 times that poor little ghost hands pushed cars over those tracks. I refer all students, who mention those San Antonio train tracks, to that episode of "Fact or Faked" and tell them NOT to believe every ghost story they hear.
Carry one but remain calm
I'm always on the look-out for large eye shine or strange shadows or sounds that they may happen upon in their investigations. Any of those shows that have people traipsing around out in the woods looking for ghost or monsters of some kind are always entertaining to me.
Is about as dopey as they come.
Sadly I just read House Hunters is all faked.
Next thing you know, I will find out the NFL is rigged.......
How about the "Haunted Collector" Scott...by Monster Hunter
I saw this yesterday while the Rangers were in a rain delay...remove a haunted object and all is fine...I can't even remember the object damnit...CRS...a terrible disease that most suffer with age...
I have made it through an entire episode of that one.
I still watch Ghost Hunters every now and then.
Haunted Collector and the item on this week's show was a garrotte...it had been hidden on purpose in the wall in the attic. There's something weird going on our planet these days--and the interest (or over interest) in the paranormal is a symptom of it. I can recall the days when you got scary movies only around Halloween time. Now, you turn on a channel...and someone's stirring the atmosphere looking for spooks.
Slugs/snails...large snails/slugs...by Monster Hunter
Radioactive monster snails from Fukushima, Japan?!?!
Looks like more than just a pier has washed up on our west coast!
-Mike in NC
Sounds like a plot for a Hollywood movie...
Makes me wonder if anything would like to try to eat sea critters like that...smaller snails maybe but...huge ones? LOL
Iceland has a "Giant Worm"?...by Monster Hunter
A close look at the video shows that the "monster" never really goes anywhere but looks like it is slicing through the water due to the rapid current. This object is something stationary that appears to be swimming rapidly through the water. Possibily some sort of long flowing debris caught on a snag and as the water rushes past it, makes it look like it is undulating, like a snake. Good case in something we think we see isn't really the case.
This topic was a topic on the Syfy show "Destination Truth."
Guess I need to watch a little more TV...by Monster Hunter
I did watch Destination Truth a couple of times...nothing of importance found but maybe I've missed the good ones...
investigate that same giant worm?
Honestly I can't say due to CRS. Just remember that Giant worms were the topic of one episode of the show.
investigate that same giant worm?
As I was driving in Middle TN last night and witnessed several deer grazing near the Interstate, I wondered something. Being a food source for BF, deer do seek places of protection. So do you think that deer sometimes opt for being close to busy highways/interstates as a form of protection from BF? Sort of like the lesser of two evils being that they'd chance being near fast moving vehicles if it kept BF away from them.
Better browse I would think...by Monster Hunter
and usually an abundance deer can't find in a wooded area...hunters plant green patches here, grass/wheat/oats etc. to bring the deer in...
wonder-just how many of those deer we have seen running like their life depended on it were running from bucks?
deer normally won't eat brown dried up grasses. they like green tender shoots of grasses and hedges. the grasses consistantly bushhogged are more palatable and fresh.
one reason my so many deer are involved in auto crashes.
I have noticed in the past month or so that I have seen more deer on or around the roads and interstates than I have in many years. I live and work in Manatee County Florida in a relatively rural area but has in the past few years started the build out into more surburban areas. Last week I was driving down a two lane road that on one side has a newly started sub-division and on the other an open pasture with about 100-150 cattle grazing, I estimate this open pasture/sod farm to be around 500-700+ acres. This road runs perpendicular to the Manatee river and is prime area that I constantly monitor for activity. As I was driving, I glanced over to see a doe and her fawn(possible 2-4 months old but much smaller than the doe)running at top speed in the pasture and as luck would have it they continued horizontal to the road for at least a mile. I was traveling at 50mph and they were both keeping up with me as I traveled. I estimate that for at least 45-60 seconds I was able to see the two of them running at full speed as they were trying to escape from something. They were only about a hundred yards off the road but for some reason never diverted from their path straight down the pasture. It was amazing that for much of the run the fawn was in the lead and mom was only a stride behind. I remember wandering what could have spooked them so badly. Forward to last Thursday night, my wife and I were returning from some friends of ours' house, and we were on a road that runs horizontal to the Mantee river in the same area that I saw the deers running. This road dead ends into the road I was on when I saw the deer and the pasture actually fronts both of these roads. As we past a particular wooded area of the road on this night my wife commented "oh a stinky kiddie", her term for a skunk. This is a saying she will say many times when we are traveling around Central Florida. I have seen a few dead skunks in my 27 years living here but not many and there were none seen that night. I unfortunately was born without a sense of smell, one that many of you declare is important when near a monster. I can't smell a d*** thing and in most times have found it a major plus when I hear my wife complaining about how this or that stinks so bad. Regardless of my handicap, I have often wandered if what she is smelling is truly a skunk or Skunk-ape. I now am wandering if the two instances are connected in the way that the deer may have been spooked by a possible skunk-ape. Obviously, without the ability to smell what she is talking about, I can't first hand report on what she smelled but many I have talked to related that the moist, swampy areas around much of Florida emit noxious, nauseating smell due to the methane gases and are often discribed as smelling like a skunk or dead body. I know of no recent sightings in this area and as I said, I have been a constant monitor of the upper Manatee River, Myaka Head, Lake Manatee Water Shed.
Regardless, I found it very interesting that I have seen so many deer in broad daylight lately, openly grazing in the roads and byways around my area of operation.
The stench...by Monster Hunter
IMO...an unforgettable smell...but there are weeds and plants that stink either when it rains or it's hot...especially in an area that holds water like a swamp...
IMO There are just as many or more deer that you do not see that are away from the road in hay fields and crop ground.
It makes it too easy for the BFs to scavange during the winter and during the Fall rut. I see too many deer in my area (michigan) struck and killed by the road. I have seen deer dragged based on marks in thesnow and dirt to make me believe the BFs love a free meal this way. Most of the animals will hunt in packs in thie fields swamps. But the road kill is easy for them to hunt for carrian.
Telephone call yesterday...by Monster Hunter
Hunters set up a game cam over looking a hog trap...according to the contact...clear picture of a Monster...after the picture the Monster poked out the lens of the camera...
Contact told the couple the picture would be worth quite a bit of money and there could be some DNA left on the camera...funny how people think and here's why...a still can be hoaxed...unless the Monster cut it's finger poking out the lens where would the DNA come from?...
I'm headed down this week to see the picture but with the seed of money already planted in their heads I doubt I'll get a copy...but if I do...I will share...
My BS meter hit a 10,by Grumpy
Hog hunters, monsters and a broken lens.... any monster I know would have used a stick to poke out the lens....... then beat the camera to death since animals don't know what a lens is or what it's for......
You may be right Grumpy...by Monster Hunter
The evidence is in the picture and camera lens...I'll make sure and look at both...
BTW...I forgot to mention...CRS...by Monster Hunter
The lady reported seeing a large bear in her front yard some months back...though I haven't seen any sign of bear doesn't mean there aren't any bear in the area...according to my contact...they were all skeptics and had no idea a Monster would go down on all fours...the picture changed their mind...so hopefully it's as good as claimed...
to get to see the picture they have? I hope it's a picture worth your time to bother with. It always sounds exciting when there's news of a possible new monster picture or video. Keep us posted!
I'm headed that way in the morning Nellie...by Monster Hunter
It's only a few miles from my other contacts...
Anticipation is making me wait.
Yes I went as planned...by Monster Hunter
The pictures we saw on the computer were anything but compelling evidence of anything...goes to show what some people think as "no doubt clear BF pictures"...there was one the lady couldn't find on the computer but if it was anything like the three we saw it couldn't have been much...to close to the camera and just pieces of something...one picture we could see hair that had the color of a coon but it was a day time photo and few self respecting coon prowl during the day time hours...the hair had two shades...a dark and lighter color...short hair maybe an inch to an inch and a half...
Something of interest...the lens was shattered on the game camera...I haven't seen that before and yes I have dropped cameras without breaking the lens...I took a Q tip, swabbed the shattered lens and only got a piece of dust so nothing of interest there...there was not any blood or anything visible...IMO I doubt seriously a person did that...finding the camera would be almost impossible and I would think if someone did find the camera they would have taken it...the camera was hung over looking the area he had a hog trap right off of the creek where Ms. Shirley took the picture of the Monster...
Mr Phelps drove up and we had a good visit with us going to where the man had the camera hanging...as the crow flies it's about a mile from the ladies home through the woods so I do know there are Monsters in the area...we parked the jeep walked in several hundred yards to where the camera and deer stand were...I walked down the creek and heard a loud pop and dummy me looked in the direction...I know better then to do that...walking back I heard something like a low growl with Mr. Phelps hearing a noise...we were at the jeep talking...Mr. Phelps was looking down the dim lane we walked and saw a small Monster down on all fours who peaked his head around a tree...several hundred yards down the lane...I looked but couldn't see what he saw...distance, foliage and lack of seeing any movement...
The man, contact, didn't hear anything which tells me that most of us old timers, investigators, listen more closely then the average hunter...though the man has hunted in the area for a few years he hasn't seen anything but has heard some sounds he, like most, think are birds or some type of known critter...his brother told the man he was hearing strange calls off and on from the same area...
The trip was worth the time since I now have a few more contacts in the area...there has been three or four sightings of Monsters on the road leading to their home and the lady saw what she thought was a huge bear walking in the yard some years back...
Glad you got to meet the neighbors,seems like we are having more reports on this side of the creek now.Still haven't seen anything,but I keep looking.The couple have been here for yrs. just moving down to stay after he retired.He doesn't hear very well though, he seems to have no problem finding and killing deer.They are really good people when you get to know them.
it's always exciting to hear what you discover on your monster outings.
My son and I got out and about the other day(we're just getting over a bout of bronchitis)and checked out a new city park out on the river.It has a great floating dock that will be great for fishing. We were the only people out there...evidently not too many folk know the park is there. We always take our video/still photo camera with us and binoculars...who knows when you may spot a skunk ape. If that lucky chance ever occurs you can bet you'll be the first to know.
We had a good time...by Monster Hunter
Visited with some good folks and appreciated their time...
Camping gear and musical instruments with. We will see what we see!
from the excursion. On the way in after I was on the Game trail I heard one distinctive tree knock over to my left about 50 yards. Another knock on my way out at approx same location. No sighting but found what I think is a footprint about 13-14in long. One area I went by was VERY quiet, no birds insects, etc. Before and on the other side of this area there were regular Forest noises. I was there about 3 hours. I photgraphed the print.
Sounds as if you had a good time...by Monster Hunter
Send in the picture of the track if you would...that's why we're here...to see collected evidence...
Kind of weird and unusual...by Monster Hunter
Notice the pine limb leaning against the game camera...I've hung cameras for years but this was the first and only time I've had anything leaned on my camera...have had them moved, skewed, at times but think it was coon...this camera was hung about twenty feet from a well used trail that lead to the trailer...
almost every camera I have used in 5-6 different locations has ended up with sticks, limbs and rocks on it or stuck into it.
one camera was beaten off side ways and the limb was busted up around it. there are NO OTHER PEOPLE on that property.
use one camera as bait and have two others trained on the bait camera.
We received a report...by Monster Hunter
From the small town I grew up in so I called the man...he's not really a BF enthusiast but found the below while hiking around...
So I like it! What cha lookin at?
I think...by Monster Hunter
Some type of foot...
Some type of drip stone.
Was this found near a running source of water?
Although it " could be " a petrified footprint, the proportions look a bit off.
I don't know anything about...by Monster Hunter
Where it was found...I've talked to the man several times but I can't recall...
My neighbor who had the deer meat stolen out of their ice chest a few yrs. back is having problems with hogs at their stands,as you know they can be very destructive to deer feeders.So they put up a catch pen to catch them and also a game camera to see how many were coming in.They got a pic of something fuzzy up close to the camera neither she nor her husband knew what it was,they showed it to another neighbor and he asked them,"What the h*** is that?"Both her and her husband are big hunters and have seen nothing like this before,I didn't see it and asked about seeing it she thinks they deleted it,if not I will get a copy.Their lease runs from our houses to behind Ms.Frances' and Shirley's houses.They are both down to earth people that are very trustworthy,both are older people.
Could be other then Monster...by Monster Hunter
I've had coons climb around on my cameras...they're feeding when something they hear or see spooks them and scamper up the nearest tree...but then again...I know without doubt what is in those thickets...would be interesting to see the picture...
If possible, I'd like to see that picture(s) if able to get it posted. Have my interest perked.
Raccoon on a camera...by Monster Hunter
Deer spooked one of them with him scampering up the tree I had the camera hung on...
I believe somebody put Ben gay in Jimbo's preparation H,,lol.
Seems like somebody has a case of the red a$$.
Jimbo, I am gonna give you some advice that somebody gave me a while back," Slow down and breathe normally",,lol.
Thank God I have a forum here to do that. I'm not right...but I have to put it out there for others to ponder. No EB tactic here, I don't care what side yer on....just that you know the facts and base your opinion on that evidence.
And never....EVER...let what you want, drive your study..Wishful thinking and ignorant want have no place in this science.
Kiss the kids..
I love ya
Some just comment on things they don't know about.
First off..I love you....and I know you are looking for the Venus to cross the Sun.
God Bless....cloudy here.
WE go way back in this "Thing of ours" and had wonderful moments together.
I have talked to Jim and he has put his faith in you,,,,,I have always had my faith in you...we go way back.
I tried to talk you out of this but you were heard strong.
I told you what you were getting into, but you didn't care.
One day...you said my little telescope could see Saturn...I said BS.................................................I saw the friggin rings around it!!!!!
Dyin is easy...living is the hard part.
It wasn't that long ago Jim, that people scoffed at the idea of a sun centered solar system. Galileo tried to get people to look through the newly invented telescope, but they refused. "A transit of Venus?" "No way!" All they had to do was look. It was there for them to see. There isn't any solid evidence for a Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, right? Well...yes, there is. It's just as hard to get someone to look now, as it was for Galileo then. It upsets a lot of apple carts. We, as a society want our apple carts running smoothly. Bigfoot is a bump in the road. M.K.
Evidence is there...by Monster Hunter
IMO the evidence is over whelming but in others eyes the evidence is ambiguous at best...I know what I see and hear from experience...others interrupt the evidence differently...being a skeptic IMO is admirable to a point...as long as the skepticism is from experience and not ignorance...
"It wasn't that long ago Jim, that people scoffed at the idea of a sun centered solar system. Galileo tried to get people to look through the newly invented telescope, but they refused."
I have been whooped at from no further away than 60 ft and have had things thrown at me at the same location. Could it have been a prankster 3 miles deep into an almost impenetrable National Forest? I suppose it could have been any number of "things." Then again...
or be called a witch and burned at the stake by the Pope's order.

IDIOTS DO HINDER PROGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lose them before they take you down.
Some of you know me, some of you don't.
The most important thing that happens here is that we don't get fooled again.
If we do...kiss yer credibility good bye...you will become wanton fools.
Remember...."what you know"...is not what most believe...
Choose your words wisely...for they may be your last......
(Please no 300 comeback...In have heard them all.)
I see cracks in the wonderful fortress.
Danny Sears from Fort Worth here.I am a member of the TBG and really enjoy this message board as I do visit Everyday. Recently I went on an outing with the TBG and occasionally by myself here in North Texas and just about every time I go, I can hear whispering in the woods.It sounds like an Native American language to me.I have looked after hearing such whispering only to find nothing.I hear this in known Squatch areas(where I have and others seen evidence).
Have you guys ever heard this? It's really got me baffled.Do these animals speak or have a language? Maybe spirits or something? I honestly don't have a clue.
I've heard some strange vocals...by Monster Hunter
But not any whispering...somethings communicating back and forth as they traveled down the creek one night...
Timberghosts sent me this for you and this explanation.
