And since it is pretty common knowledge that not only will animals chase after people who run from them....animals run much faster and I think nearly always catch the person. If it is you dog it is fun. Animals like to run away from people who do not run away from them.

The storm will just be angry rain and wind by the time it gets here but it still means a whole day in a rain suit and trying to keep equipment dry. I'm not complaining though. It's a heck of a better circumstance than those folks on the coast have to endure. Wishing them the best!

MK's Videos

by J

Yes I do have some of MK's older mini-dv discs. I have not received any request for them in years. He did want to come get them once but I was going to be out and I asked him not to come because I wouldn't be here. The tapes were in a box in the back of a closet where i had put them up. I got them out after he had asked about them. I didn't hear back from him after that.
MK is on my facebook and here, there is ample ways he can get in touch with me. Send me an address and I'll ship the tapes.
I'm not holding anything from him, though at the time the tapes were not loaned to me, they were given to me because MK said he was "getting out of the bigfoot thing". He is welcome to them back, I have no need for them.

M.K.'s videos

by Big D

I think he should approach one of the major networks with his footage. YouTube is just not the media outlet for such compelling evidence. The clips could easily be marketed as the most intriguing evidence to the authenticity of the films every presented. With the recent rising interest in all matters Bigfoot, I believe millions would watch. If an individual watches the entire sequence of videos that M.K. has, they will be hard-pressed to dismiss the footage as fake. I know it is not a corpse, but it is the next best thing. If a picture is worth a 1000 words, these videos should be worth at least a few million. Hey, innocence only has to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt within the criminal justice system, and anyone with a brain cannot watch these clips and say that they are "beyond a reasonable doubt" fake. I'm just saying! I believe in you M.K., and so do several others on this forum. Think about it.

Maybe the members of GCBRO should begin the process of making a documentary. Sure, it may take two or three years to get enough footage to make a two hour show, but I believe with the talents of the individuals involved in the group coupled with the numerous areas throughout the U.S. that the GCBRO has access to, a pretty darn good film could be made that may have the potential to net the group some money to purchase equipment and to cover other expenses. Who knows MH, you might even be a movie star:-)

That's a couple of Monsters...Ms. Francis has walked out in her yard amongst them taking pictures...I know what I have seen...I know what I see in their pictures even though some are not just right...it's easy to talk about pictures that are blurry, Monsters back in a tree line but there is a certain fear factor that occurs after a sighting...most wouldn't even think to take a picture until after the fact...

The picture Ms. Shirley sent to me...she said she smelled a horrid stench...heard some limbs breaking and then saw the beast...she text me telling me every hair on her body stood up but she still took the picture...

Ms. Francis is now more cautious of walking out to them after I showed her several in the shrubs next to her while taking a picture of three...I don't want them to be scared to death but be reasonable remembering this is indeed a wild something...anything is possible and I don't want anything happening to anyone...so far I know of no one that has been attacked by a Monster and I don't want to hear or read about a person being physically attacked...

Don't even begin to show what happens when a smaller caliber lighter weight bullet hits heavy bone structure, most break apart and don't shatter/destroy heavy bone which IMO is what is needed to bring down LDG. Granted they do damage and cause massive internal bleeding but that does not stop LDG before they possibly close the distance and get their revenge before their brain finally tells the body they are dead. I spent 15 years as a licensed Gun Repairman with my own shop and don't put much faith into printed material which normally depicts what the author/manufacturer wants it to.

I do agree with that statement, the only solution to killing one w/ one shot is cavitation of skull and brain, or massive MASSIVE liquifaction of the center mass cardiovasular system (with hopes of a spinal column impact area), i just disagree w/ the implied theory that a small bullet (under 180, FMJ)@ > 2500fps will not properly compromise the skull and launch bone and lead into the brain cavity...beacuse im almost entirely certain it would ...i mean my bullets punch 1/4" steel plate like swiss cheese..and hell w/ the mosin nagant I have , firing a 180gr steel core...i mean..thats AP , even a deflection...your still dumping over 60% of the energy of the bullet onto an area the size of a basketball..something like..i dunno 1400 ft/lbs of force? thats like getting hit by a car right in your head

We haven't clarified

by Cochise

the proper projectile ( bullet) that is needed. I am in the big bore camp. I modified my Marlin loading gate to use Garretts' 310 grn hard cast in my .44 mag.. Of course my Marlin Guide gun in 45/70 is my go to hog rifle.

You need to match the bullet to the game. Deer hunting is less demanding of a bullet than elk or moose. Trophy Bonded, Swift A Frame, Nosler Partition, Barnes solid copper, and the "inter-lock's of factory loads) do NOT fail. Just a fact. I would not think a big foot anatomy is denser than a elk, and certainly not as broad and thick as a grizzly bear.

I used to use a 375 H&H mag but switched to my Browning 30/06 when I witness how effective the smaller calibars were with the proper bullet.

Regardless what you carry, what you shoot, you need "expensive " bullets that will hold up. The final word although is accuracy. I am used to my 45/70 but my wife shoots a Ruger mannlicher in .308, because she is more accurate with the scoped bolt action. YOU HAVE TO HIT YOUR TARGET. Too many hunters I saw didn't. I stopped going in groups unless I knew the men were good shooters and woodsman.

Grumpy, I guess the correct description would be you were a "gunsmith" for 15 years?

I agree with bullet placement, and can't understand how on these TV shows almost every deer shot needs to be tracked to be found... maybe I have just been lucky but every deer I have shot with a 30-06 using 150-165 grain bullets have dropped where they stood. And as far as Gunsmithing I am and always will be old school... A Gunsmith to me is someone who has the ability to take a block of steel and make whatever he/she wants like in times past, all others are gun repairman since they just repair or modify an existing firearm.. granted they may use vertical mills, lathes and other equipment for these repairs but do not create a complete firearm from scratch, this to me is a Gunsmith.

larger bore bullets

by SasquatchMs

well if your talking about something > .311 then your wanting HP, JHP, Partition, Polymertip, but preferablly the new TSX bullets from Barnes, as they have DEEP penetration yet flower petal after they slow down a bit upon entering the chest cavity past the rib cage, sternum...whatnot. problem w/ a slow moving round is that by the time it passes ribcage its dumped so much of its energy within the first 4" of the object that proper liquifaction of internal organs is nearly impossible unless your up really really close because the shockwave wont have enough force to rip up membranes, connective tissue and rupture a wide area of vascular tissue. thats why im in the camp of not "small" but smaller and faster even in brush or at distance or even a chest shot because the shockwave will absolutly liquify the internal organs inside the chest cavity past the ribcage, instead of it being like a hammer to the heart it would be more like a small explosive inside the entire chest of the animal, preferablly if i were contracted to hunt on of these guys, id use a .338 lapua magnum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.338_Lapua_Magnum ) w/ a 225gr barnes T-DPX, moving at around 3000fps muzzle and lord..(calculating) 4500 ft/lbs(est) @ 100yards
. I should clarify I study the art and science of ballistics both in a terminal( biological/medical sense) and the physics of projectiles. Brush is sometimes a problem w/ smaller rounds, but even larger bullets because they are already moving slow and have so much force against them after leaving the barrel (air pressure, aerodynamics,) that any loss in momentum really is a hinderace in their terminal performance. Of course they might pass through small limbs, but their trajectory will change even w/ the slightest outside factor just as any bullet will because their mass is usually so small when they are hanging out there in the elements on their way to the target.

I was asking if he had any experience as a hunter to get a sense of where his seemingly obvious disgust for this particular set of posts was coming from. I have been involved in this type of research for just a short time now, and though I have only participated in actual field excursions just a few times, I have done it enough to know that it is a bit different from stalking any other type of quarry I have ever set out after. I think to assume that your group can simply go out and bag a creature as historically elusive as this creature has been is just silly, and not to mention it is not as simple as just killing the creature should it appear. There are all sorts of laws, both criminal as well as wildlife related, that must be taken into consideration. One must also consider the wishes of the land owner. Maybe the lady where you have been doing the research does not want the animal(s) harmed. Maybe she simply wants to learn more about the creatures and wants you and your group to assist her in the learning. I don't know all of the facts, I just know that this is a forum that deals with a very controversial topic. It is also one that gives both believers and non-believers the opportunity to make their case for others to consider. I just hate to see a situation where someone APPEARS to be intolerant of another's beliefs or experiences. That is exactly how the War of Northern Aggression began

hunting a monster

by Cochise

It is my opinion that it is impossible to "sneak" up on a monster. I don't know what their 6th sense might be, but you only see one when it wants you to see them.

Monster Hunter, It did cross my mind when you posted that pic, it might be a chance to "waste" one booger but I know you have more issues intervening. I think cameras at her house is the way to go. You can collect allot of data for future research watching this area. Keep the info coming, I can't wait to find out more!

they don't like it one bit when you get within 100 yards of them and them not know it. 2 times I have done it, they didn't even look back as they ran for heavy cover.

You would have a good time there...good people, Monsters, a black eyed something and ghosts...It is fun to walk around in areas of activity knowing there is a possibility the Monsters are following you around...maybe snapping a stick or breaking a limb or tree...

I've always thought

by RubyRed

"they wuz well organized!" Of course, I have absolutely NO proof! I've never actually seen a monster up close but I went hunting with my father and first hubby, where I shot at birds. I was in the forests enough in past years to know that a monster might have been six feet away from me and I would not have known it. I've seen one tall shadow in a wooded area near Conroe, looked at a "something" move some bushes on private land near Conroe and watched something tall and odd cross Hwy 59N early one morning. BUT I don't claim any proof of those sightings being a BF other than the odd feeling I experienced afterward. So...thinking these animals are organized and very proficient in the woods is based on both my 'feelings' and on the experts, whose posts and photos I've enjoyed over the years. AND, oh, yeah--also on the campfire stories I was privileged to hear first hand.

That's 28 years ago ( "I've been ex-military for 28 years" ). I don't see how that has any bearing on your ability to hunt, slip around the woods, track, etc., especially since it was so long ago. I've been out for 24 years, but I already knew how to do all that prior to being trained by the military. The two have nothing in common.

Re: Where's the body?

by Big D

Not at all Mr. Murdoch. First off, thank you for your service to our Country. The fact that you served in the military alone gives you credit and earns respect from me. I simply wondered if you were a hunter to try to realize what type of background you have where hunting is concerned. I have been an avid hunter for 35 years. I've seen almost every type of game animal there is to see in the south, but I can't imagine what it must be like to see one of these creatures. I have heard them in very close proximity to me, to the point where I had my hand on my gun and was ready to shoot . . . what exactly I was not sure . . . but I was ready to shoot something. It was worse than any buck fever you could ever imagine. I just think that there is way more to collecting one of these creatures than just putting one in your sights and pulling a trigger. And if you are the hunter that you claim to be, and I have no reason to doubt that you are, I'm sure you understand this.

Respectfully submitted,

Out of respect

by Lhofa

Doug, the reason we have not killed one of the animals at Ms. Francis house after she said she doesn't want them hurt is because we are not poachers. You must have mistaken us for some other group. Why don't you just go find your own monster somewhere else and shoot one and show us the carcass and then we will acknowledge you are right. They are not like anything you have ever hunted. If you have never seen one just leave it that way. Quite a few people who did finally see them sincerely wish they never had, so that they could still have the comfort of doubting there really are monsters.

clear vision, blurry pics

by MikeInNC

My thought is that, almost always, while the picture may be fuzzy......what someone sees with his/her eyes, in "3-D" (two eyes to help create depth - as opposed to a 2-D picture/video) is much clearer.

The photographer sounds legit. The pic/video seems legit (though not conclusive).

I think this may be a legit sighting where the person clearly saw the creater with a pair of eyes, and the picture/vid cannot provide enough clarity, detail, definition, proper contrast/light/color.

My .02 cents.

The fence and an anomaly within the anomaly

by Circlewalker

I have previously stated that my observations have led me to believe that a female and a few juveniles stay in the area I call the first clearing while a small group of males stay in an area across the creek.

I will point out some things that suggest this notion. I also welcome any ideas or thoughts that develop or elaborate on this discussion even if it negates ideas I put forth.

I went back to the area in September. The reason I went during that specific time frame is because of a picture I took on June 25th 2011 and because of a comment made by a retired forest ranger in an interview about BF.

The picture I took may have a female with a newborn. If the picture does show that then we can extrapolate impregnation around September/October assuming a gestation period of about 8-9 months (Gorillas 8.5 months, chimpanzees 8 months approximately). The retired US Forest Ranger made a comment to the effect that the US Forest Service knew about the existence of bigfoot and actually knew quite a bit about them. He further stated that they rut in September/October.

Rutting in September/October would make sense from a survival standpoint since the female would be carrying throughout the coldest winter months and giving birth sometime in late May early June.

The picture I took on June 25th 2011 is one I have already posted and I do not want to beat that picture to death. However, some of the things in the picture simply do not make sense so I am going to repost and point out some but not all of the anomalies.

This is the picture:

[IMG][/IMG]

I am going to sound crazy but I am putting forth the idea that the picture indicates two babies clinging to the female. There is a possibility that there is a newborn in the front and another possibly clinging to the back. A baby clinging to the back is not uncommon and happens frequently with various apes as this picture indicates:

[IMG][/IMG]

Zooming in on the picture I took on June 25th 2011 indicates some things that may indicate something clinging to the back of the female.

[IMG][/IMG]

This picture shows facial orientation and possible baby in the front. It also shows the anomaly just over the shoulder and another anomaly on the head (which I am suggesting is a hand):

[IMG][/IMG]

This is the blowup wth no mark up:

[IMG][/IMG]

The reason I point out these anomalies is because of the fence. In September I found a fence in the first clearing I previously did not know was there. There is fencing crisscrossing the whole area on both sides of the creek. In some instances where I believe theses things traffic through the metal fence post has been bent in half and in other areas the barb wire strands have just been ripped out:
[IMG][/IMG]

The fence had two sticks holding the fence down. However, the fence did not need to be held down for anything other than something child-sized. In fact, I could have straddled the fence even at full height:

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

On June 30th 2012 I made a trip to this area.All of the wood knocking, metal knocking and rock clacking I have put on this forum came from this area.

On the way back out on June 30th I saw a shadow by a bush and before I could blink it shot back into the bushes. I moved around trying to get position around the bush to see if I could get position and perhaps see it hiding. As I moved around I began to hear screams coming from the area. I believe the screams to be from the female which does not sound like the vocalizations I have heard from across the creek. I also believe it was screaming because I was moving around where one of the older juveniles was hiding:

http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/leaving-the-area2a

[IMG][/IMG]

One of the things that has had me puzzled about the encounter on June 25th 2011 is that I have not been able to figure out how these things could have crossed the creek without me hearing them. I waded acrss the creek and the water was waist high and well over 20 feet with high banks on both sides at the smallest crossing area. I now believe that they did not cross and that there were two groups, one on each side of the creek.

When my two sons and I crossed the creek to the tree formations we had a chorus of vocalizations that sounded very close to the vocalization I recorded the following year on June 30th 2012 except it was closer, louder and there were three or more instead of one. This is the picture on June 25th 2011:

[IMG][/IMG]
and the vocalization I recorded on June 30th 2012:
http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/vocalization-iia
Again, I have only heard this on the other side of the creek.

Something to remember...most are picture blind...if the subject is not standing in a wide open mowed field quite a few will not see what you are talking about...most hunters, good hunters, will see some items presented...may not be what you see but their interpretation of the pictures will be similar...

BTW...I had an area where the females remained across the creek in a cut over away from the male Monsters...to get to one of the food plots there were two logs...one west and one south they crossed to get to the plot...tracked them many times...at times when I would go in to feed I would hear them announcing my presence...pretty damn neat...that area is now a large pipe line...

Thanks Monster Hunter...

by Circlewalker

Just as an aside I wanted to see if She-Wolf was correct and the female did go off with the male. The results were inconclusive but I do think the metal knocks gave away the position on the hill and that had not happened before. (Meaning I do not think the female was in the first clearing when I was there in September. I believe if anything was there it was the juveniles.

I also was looking for additional sign that might indicate maybe an alpha was fighting for the female and I did find something strange that I will put here. Just as some background this area has only had a trace of rain from June until the end of September. The place is in a major drought.

This is the picture I took on June 30th 2012 the tree is outlined in red:

It may very well be weather related but the top of that tree would be somewhere close by and I couldn't find it. The tree was there in June and gone in September with no rain except a trace in almost 2 months. I also didn't see any other damage other than what was noted.

I have found a couple of other instances of large tree damage and it just doesn't make sense to explain some of it as weather related IMHO...

The picture below is the broken trunk end of a tree that was placed into this dead tree. Please note the lack of trees close enough in the background...Both of us couldn't have lifted that thing into position.

Montana Man Killed During Bigfoot HoaxKatie KindelanAugust 28, 2012A Montana man dressed in a Bigfoot costume in an apparent attempt to provoke reports of sightings of the mythical creature was killed when he was struck by two cars on a highway.Randy Lee Tenley, 44, of Kalispell, in Northwest Montana, was standing in the right-hand lane of U.S. Highway 93 Sunday night when he was struck by a car, the Montana Highway Patrol said. A second car then hit him again as he lay in the road, authorities said.READ MORE: Bigfoot or Big Joke: You Decide"He had this Ghillie suit and was going to attempt to get the attention of passing motorist and, through I don't know what means, make them feel like they saw Bigfoot or sasquatch," Montana Highway Patrol Officer Jim Schneider told ABC affiliate KTMF.Schneider told the local newspaper the Daily Inter Lake that authorities determined Tenley's motive, posing as Bigfoot, after interviewing the man's friends. Alcohol "may have been a factor," in the incident, according to Schneider.READ MORE: Bigfoot Spotted in Idaho?The military-style "Ghillie" suit worn by Tenley was a full-body suit made of strips of camouflage fabric, making it difficult for drivers to spot him. The suit is typically used by military members to camouflage snipers in combat.The two vehicles that struck Tenley were driven by teenage girls, one age 15 and one age 17, police said.Bigfoot and Sasquatch are names given to mysterious, mythical ape-like creatures that some people believe inhabit forests. The theory is largely discounted by scientists but the legend has persisted, even giving rise to its own TV show, "Finding Bigfoot," on the Animal Planet.In May, a group of high school students said they may have came come close to Bigfoot during a class project in the Idaho wilderness. A 38-second YouTube video shot in April in the Grand River area of Northeast Ohio claims to show a large, dark and hairy creature running across a path in the woods that many have proposed could be Bigfoot.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

This paragraph sums it up IMO...

by Monster Hunter

"Conservation practitioners are commonly faced with a lack of resources, limited scientific knowledge on the system under management, and sometimes operate within a hostile socio-political environment. Oftentimes biologists require general MVP targets for species conservation but do not have the time, skills or resources to run viability analyses. MVP targets are used to allocate scarce resources toward the maintenance of populations, and for the derivation of minimum species habitat requirements, which may then be used as a demographic and genetic justification for reserve design or preservation, and the possible creation of corridors or trans-boundary national parks. The recommendations that biologists make, based on broad MVP targets, are usually serious, with legal and financial consequences. Where data and resources are scarce, MVP ranges may be cautiously used"

The MVP is nothing more then a wild axxed estimate...there is not any way we could use anything more or less then the MVP since we know little to nothing about the subject we search for...theory, what little evidence we have gathered that has been submitted may or may not be accurate...therefore all we have is a wild axxed guess with a bit of evidence, just enough, to validate some of our theories...

MY theory...hunt them long enough and you'll discover after twenty years...you know little and what you think you knew can and more then likely will be changed over night...Think about this...what known animal on earth, something many of us have personally seen, can we not successfully hunt?...I can only think of one...

I think you are right Monster Hunter...

by Circlewalker

I was just looking at it from a slightly different perspective.

If There were confirmed visuals (pictures) of monsters and the physical evidence shows multiple deformity (multiple three toed tracks, the crippled one you have pictures of, the one that you described as looking like downs syndrom,and or the one with the long neck, for example)

it might point to a smaller population (If the estimates in the reading are reliable) of well under 50 in the area and 6 or less breeding pairs with inbreeding possibly causing the deformities.

Something else that plays into this is the time frame. If the area has a history of sightings going back 4 or more decades with little or no evidence of deformity it may have a higher population of 100 or more through-out a given region.

I was trying to think through how we could look at the little evidence we get and possibly make minimum population size estimates of a given area.

Just something to give some thought to.

A minimum viable population (MVP) size is an estimate of the number of individuals ( in this case monsters) required for a high probability of survival of a population over a given period of time.

Time periods are typically limited due to species type (which is unknown in this case), but it is usually 20, 50, 100 and 100+ years

Things that may limit a population of animals(of whatever species) include:
Inbreeding;

natural catastrophes (tornadoes, blizzards, earthquakes volcanoes, floods, fire drought etc.) that may decrease a population of animals

Effects to the environment (building, farming etc)

Other factors (natural fluctuations caused by natural survival rates, and population density (too many animals on a given piece of land)

All factors (usually but sometimes by themselves to) work together to impact survival or extinction of a species.

Sometimes studies have shown the persistence of (sometimes small) populations over periods of 50, 75 and 100 years

There is a rule (of thumb)of 50/ 500 meaning that a minimum of 50 animals must be present with a minimum of 6 breeding pairs to allow a species to survive in the short term.

There is a rule (of thumb) of 500 animals needed for survival of 100 years or more in order to have enough genetic variation to survive and thrive in the long term.

However, Monster Hunter is correct in saying that there is not enough information:

"There are no robust rules of thumb for estimating MVP sizes for species lacking population models or other detailed information on their demography or changes in abundance over time;"

In other words for an unknown species... no one has solid answers about population rates and or size.

I know, I don't have the cred you do. I'm a skeptic that you have a farm of minotaurs; I do consider the existence of an honest to goodness unknown hominid to be quite realistic. So my interest in this site. Yes, I lurk, and since you were close, sorta, to figuring out where I live, you might look at how long ago I joined this site. I joined when I lived in Caddo Parish. So, no need to change nicknames, but in the spirit of disclosure I actually live in the Florida panhandle in Walton County. Frankly, if you contend to have a farm of minotaurs I think that is fantastic. Magical. So good luck, I really do hope you get one, maybe you could be a modern day Theseus.

I have no idea what that is in the picture...ghost/haint/spook/monster...I do know where the picture was taken and know that Monsters have been seen and photographed in that area...are they connected somehow?...kind of like that web site I mentioned above...no concrete evidence just here say so we can let our imaginations run wild thinking and believing what ever pops in our heads...I'll not be influenced by a fictional writer...

I am an "actual witness".

by Lone Wolf

I have witnessed this with my own eyes on more than one occasion.

One was a child, which I will not go into details for personal reasons.

The other was an adult male who was demon possessed.
He was intimidating a neighbor by screaming and throwing deer entrails (of a deer he shot I assume) around his own yard and into the yard of my friend.

When I confronted him he turned and stared at me, he had no white to his eyes.
They were as black as coal and as lifeless as a doll.

After saying a few things to him, he ran inside.

Another neighbor called police, he was arrested, and never seen again. When the cops brought him outside in cuffs, his eyes appeared normal.

I'll let you all be the judges as to my "credibility".

Goto Forum Home

So

by Crispy

I imagine your neighbor throwing the entrails always had pure black eyes?

You say he was possessed, then was normal after the police came. Doesn't sound like all the BEK tales. Sounds more like overdosed on one of the many street drugs that will make you pupils as big as saucers and make you a lunatic.

But I imagine you ruled that possibility out, since you never saw him again. You don't mention if you ever saw him before this incident either.

Being temporarily possessed doesn't make one a BEK either. Makes one temporarily possessed.

I don't know you, so I can't judge your credibility.

I imagine you think you saw one or two of them, and are convinced. I still maintain my argument that there is no such thing based on the evidence presented.

You didn't share much. So I should take it on faith that what you say is gospel.

There are a lot of epileptic drugs that cause what you are describing as well.

In fact there are many prescription and non that cause those effects.

All the stories go back to 1 man in 1998. There is nothing mentioned before that anywhere. Your encounter does not match any of the stories.

Did you feel a sense of dread.....didn't say.

Was the BE person extreme;y polite...sounds quite the opposite.

Did he ask to come into your house....no - he ran away.

I have read your stories of paranormal events. I have had many similar events happen. Although I do not go around like I am a ghost or demon expert. I am curious. And I am skeptical of stories that start from the Internet.

BEK's started on the Internet.

You can sell your wares to someone else.

I didn't say anything comparing my observations to your internet story, I simply made a statement that based on my observations on two occasions black eyed humans are real.
I have no idea what BEK's are as related to your stories.
I know the difference between drug affected or demon possessed.

As to my credibility you can question it all you want, I don't post to satisfy your "curiosity".
I could care less if you believe what I say or not. Impressing internet strangers is not my motivation.

I post that I may help someone that is being plagued by evil spirits or other paranormal events.
There are people that are suffering daily due to ghosts or demonic oppression. These people often seek my help.

Regarding your comment of "you can sell your wares to someone else", not sure what you might be insinuating with that.
You sound very bitter.......
I have helped dozens of people over several years free themselves from evil, at great danger to myself, free of charge.
I would never charge anyone anything for using what I consider is a gift from God.

Goes back to this guy starting it all

Most BEK accounts are stories found online in blogs, message boards, newsgroups and the like. In fact, the first known posting of a BEK incident was posted by Brian Bethel onto a newgroup he was a member of. It was on January 16, 1998 when Bethel posted to his newsgroup

This Bethel is now a "Spiritual Writer" for a small newspaper, and my guess a failed wanna be novelist.

Before his story in 1998 there are no known references to BEK's. Since then on the Internet there are a lot of stories. But outside of Internet stories, it all goes back the Brian Bethel starting it all.

First account that started it all

by Crispy

January 1998 First BEK Encounter Reported
Brian Bethel's Account
First off, Brian Bethel is and was at the time of his experience with BEKs, a legitimate reporter. Here's a current link for a profile on him by his employer, the Reporter-News in Abilene Texas:http://www.reporternews.com/staff/brian-bethel/

Bethel posted online after he calmed (somewhat) from the experience he had with BEKs in January 1998. He said he had just parked his car in a lot near to a movie theatre as well as the internet service provider he used. He was sitting in his vehicle, writing out a cheque for payment to his service provider when two youngsters approached his car. There were two boys but Bethel doesn't mention them knocking on his car window or anything - he just says as soon as he noticed them approaching, he felt suddenly panicky and "an overwhelming sense of fear and unearthliness rushed in..."

More, in Bethel's own words:

"The spokesman smiled, and the sight for some inexplicable reason chilled my blood. I could feel fight-or-flight responses kicking in. Something, I knew instinctually, was not right, but I didn't know what it could possibly be.

I rolled down the window very, very slightly and asked "Yes?"

The spokesman smiled again, broader this time. His teeth were very, very white.

"Hey, mister, what's up? We have a problem," he said. His voice was that of a young man, but his diction, quiet calm and ... something I still couldn't put my finger on ... made my desire to flee even greater. "You see, my friend and I want to see the films, but we forgot our money," he continued. "We need to go to our house to get it. Want to help us out?"

"C'mon, mister. Let us in. We can't get in your car until you do, you know," the spokesman said soothingly. "Just let us in, and we'll be gone before you know it. We'll go to our mother's house."

We locked eyes."

From here, Bethel was horrified to find his hand straying toward the door lock, beginning to unlock his car door. He jerked his hand free of the locking mechanism and also broke off eye contact with the strange children at this point.

"I turned back. "Er ... Um ..." I offered weakly and then my mind snapped into sharp focus.

For the first time, I noticed their eyes.

They were coal black. No pupil. No iris. Just two staring orbs reflecting the red and white light of the marquee."

At this point, Bethel took the opportunity to put his car in gear, step on the gas pedal and he raced out of the parking lot.

Later on, he posted the experience online.

Here's an astronomical/meteorological event you don't see everyday. The wife and I were traveling back to East Texas and I snapped a picture of the top of this thunderstorm an instant before two blue jets shot out of the top of it. The picture is a little misleading because the storm was much higher than we were. The jets came out right at the two light spots an instant after I took this photo. We were close and they were spectacular. They lit up the whole cabin with bright blue light. After I did a little reading up, what you see here are the "blue starts" which precede the jets. This photo apparently shows something very rare, and something modern science knows very little about. I've seen the sprites ans elves before, but this is the first time I've ever got a good look at jets. And, we got a GOOD LOOK! For those wanting to do a little research, google "red sprites" and "elves" and "blue jets."

A storm with cloud tops that high has a lot of electrical potential. When the tops get close enough to the ionosphere, some weird stuff happens that is poorly understood. It's a rare thing to get a good look at this type of phenomenon. Good photo Steve! M.K.

Jim, book this baby for the ladies place! :-)

by Terry

Fifteen years ago, Utah-based prospector William A. Barnes was on a solo gold-dredging expedition in the wilds of Northern California. One night, he heard something disturbing the rocks in the canyon above his campsite. He proceeded to watch as that indistinct something came trudging downhill, until it stood only about three feet (.9 meters) from his tent. At that point, upon seeing its size, shape, and profile against the brightly-moonlit quartz hillside, he became a firm believer in the legendary creature commonly referred to as Bigfoot or Sasquatch. In the years since, he has become obsessed with researching the animals. Now, as the founder of The Falcon Project, he hopes to prove their existence once and for all with the help of a state-of-the-art remote-control camera-equipped airship.

So, why an airship? Unlike ground-based human explorers, it will be able to travel quickly and quietly over any terrain, it will have a high vantage point, and it will be able to see down between the trees. It also wont need to stop and catch its breath or rest its feet.

The 45-foot (13.7-meter)-long Aurora airship will be the first one of its kind, designed and built by Canadian remote-control airship company RATS (Remote Aerial Tripods) Inc. It will consist of tandem side-by-side helium-filled envelopes, joined by a gyro-stabilized carbon fiber camera platform. That catamaran-like design will help keep it from rolling from side to side, which can be a problem with traditional single-envelope airships.

It will additionally feature a proprietary propulsion system, in which air will be drawn in and vectored through four ducts. This will allow for vertical take-off and landing capabilities, hovering on the spot, and more energy-efficient operation than traditional propellor-based systems.

Casts of what could be Bigfoot footprints (Image: Dr. Jeff Meldrum)
The Aurora will reportedly have a top air speed of 45 mph (72 km/h), and will be able to remain aloft for approximately three to four hours at a time. It will be remotely-piloted by Barnes and his team from a command center in a customized motorhome, and will be switched over to autopilot once it has reached altitude. Once switched over, it will be able to autonomously perform an aerial grid search, over an area within line-of-sight of the motorhomes mast Barnes estimates that its range could extend up to five miles (eight km) in any direction from the command center.

Mounted on the airship will be a gyro-stabilized thermal imaging/infrared/HD video camera, which is being built specifically for the project. The aircraft will also be equipped with carbon dioxide-recognition equipment, to detect the exhalations of animals in the forests beneath it. Barnes hopes to become familiar with the CO2 signatures of common creatures such as bears, so that he wont get unnecessarily excited by every reading he gets. When something unusual shows up, however, the team will use to the cameras powerful zoom lens to get a better look at it, while recording the images.

The ground crew will also be playing back and recording infrasound, as some people have theorized that Bigfoots use it to communicate with one another.

William A. Barnes, founder of The Falcon Project
Barnes told Gizmag that it should take less than an hour to assemble the airship every evening, after which it will embark on several flights each night. Its camera output will be streamed live on the internet, although there will be a kill switch in the command center should a Bigfoot be spotted, viewers will only see the first few seconds, with the rest of the footage being saved for a planned educational documentary for the public. He hopes to record at least 45 minutes of smooth, clear Bigfoot footage (or perhaps Bigfootage?) for use in that film, half of the proceeds of which will go towards educating the public in wilderness conservation.

RATS, Inc. president Stephen Barkley said that he has hopes for the airship to be ready by early next spring (Northern Hemisphere). Once it is ready, Barnes plans on spending up to one year on the road, visiting Bigfoot-sighting hotspots in a total of 12 states.

Principal investigator on the project will be anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University, who has been an active Bigfoot researcher for the past 17 years. "The prospect of compelling DNA evidence for a relict North American primate looms on the horizon and may indicate that a corner is about to be turned," Meldrum told us. "[However] DNA sequence data can only tell us so much about sasquatch. What follows will be the challenge of studying a rare, reclusive, solitary, nocturnal primate species in the field. Aerial reconnaissance combined with thermal imaging, widely employed in wildlife studies, is a logical approach to meeting this challenge. The Falcon Project offers the advantage of the stealth and maneuverability capabilities of an unmanned helium-filled airship, over helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft. This is especially true in rugged remote forested terrain."

Idaho State University anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum, with the cast of a footprint attributed to you-know-who
Not only will his involvement help lend the venture some mainstream credibility, but it will also allow Barnes to take the airship higher as a civilian pilot he would be limited to an altitude of no more than 400 feet (122 meters), but as a member of a scientific expedition associated with a university, he can take it up to 7,500 feet (2,286 meters) or more.

The Falcon Project has been in the works for nearly three years, although the universitys involvement has helped make the actual expedition a lot more likely to happen. Barnes and his team are now seeking private funding or corporate sponsorship, although members of the public are also welcome to provide tax-deductible funding via the projects website.

Were all about educating people on these creatures, he told us. Our goal is protection for them.

Barnes, incidentally, doesnt like to use the terms Bigfoot or Sasquatch, as he feels that they have become too closely associated with hoaxes and sensationalism. Instead, he prefers to call them North American apes or hominoids. Whatever you call them, and whether or not they actually exist, we definitely wish him luck in his endeavor.

Trail in and first clearing

by Circlewalker

A few days ago I put a sound file on the forum. It is filled with strange sounds that I do not have answers for. The reason I put it up was to suggest that perhaps whatever is in this area is keeping an eye on me very quickly when I enter the canopy and following me into the areas that I have outlined as trail in, first clearing, side of the hill between first and second clearing trail,and second clearing However, once I cross the creek another group may be following me. The very first vocalization on the audio I put up may actually be two sources with one in the clearing and the double grunt coming from close proximity to my position.
I repeated the sound here:

http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/first-sound-anomaly

This is going to sound crazy but I am going to suggest that the female and some juveniles stay in the first clearing and travel to the second clearing and a group of males stay across the creek. I have heard the female vocalize once in the first clearing and at the creek. The screaming I have on audio I think is also the female.I have not heard the female on the other side of the creek.

I have heard what I believe to be a male (and group) vocalize across the creek once and a single vocal once (I have an audio of the single vocalization) but have not heard these vocalizations in the first clearing or trail in... only across the creek.

So let me talk about the first clearing. there are two places I have seen anomalies around in order to hide quickly due to the cover. If you will note this is the first clearing. I am facing north and you can see the anomaly I have outlined in previous posts on the right of the picture in the back:

[IMG][/IMG]
Between those two trees on the left is where I saw one standing. I walked close to the bush trying to get a better angle to view and get pictures when the screams began.

The other place is what I want to talk about. This is where The woodknocks, metal knocks and rock clacking have taken place. I believe that as I am walking here there is a location just above the trail on the hill where I can be observed and where the noises are coming from:

[IMG][/IMG]

This is the first set of wood knocks as I was walking the perimeter of the field. You will note two timbres. In all fairness someone told me this is a woodpecker (June 30)
http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/wood-knocks-a

This is the second set of wood knocks that occurred a few minutes later:
http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/woodknock2a

These are the metal knocks that occurred in September. The first one occurred just on the other side of the group of three trees and sounded within 30 feet of my position on the trail just up the hill. I stopped then went back the way I came in.
http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/metal-knock-i

The second and third metal knocks were taken when I was standing by then fence here:

[IMG][/IMG]

http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/metal-knock-ii
http://soundcloud.com/circlewalker/metal-knock-iii

This is rock clacking from June 30th. This is from the same area on the hill. I walked about 3/4 of the way to the dead tree and when the rock clacking really began to go faster I walked back the way i came in. When I got to the area about where I heard the metal knocks. The rock clacking stopped.

He was right...

by Terry

about the woodpecker. The rock clacking sounds like a bird or marsh creature local to your area as well. (I say marsh cause I hear the male redwinged blackbird calling.) I think if you take someone with you who's familiar with the birds and animals in that area (naturalist or bird watcher) that you would easily identify what you are hearing. Good work though!

I enjoyed listending to the sounds. When I first heard the sound of the rock hitting, I thought it was a Cardinal chirping but the closer I listened the more I recognized that it was a definite pattern of hits and not like a Cardinal at all. Educational.

After listening...

by Monster Hunter

The wood knocking sounds could very well be from a wood pecker...but...the bird would starve to death working that slow...most wood peckers I have watched and heard peck much faster...not louder but faster looking for insects and grubs...

Rock clacking...I hear something but couldn't tell what it was...like T mentioned...could have been a marsh critter...

metal on metal...I can hear it plainly but what I have heard on several occasions is like someone walking through the woods hitting metal to metal in a rhythmic fashion...something like a base drum to keep the marchers in stride...sorry...I couldn't think of any other comparison...

Very interesting I did enjoy the sounds, pictures and your descriptive report...keep working...

Thanks for sharing...

by Circlewalker

The woodknocks I do not believe are from a woodpecker although I did record two woodpeckers that day. The sounds are deeper, much slower than the woodpeckers that I had recorded and actually sounded as wood on wood. Part of the problem may be the recorder that I am using which records very "tinny" and does not have the "headroom" to get the sounds just as I have heard them.It also does not record in stereo.

That metal sound I have no idea about but at one point it was actually moving down hill away from me as it was moving.

The rock clacking I believed when it first occurred as I was there, I thought it may have been a creek critter...as it went faster I could hear that it was two rocks hitting together....but did I see anything...no

The reason I am putting much of this out there including pictures and locations is because I don't intend to research this much longer than through the summer...

Question for Monster Hunter

by Cochise

I was thinking about Shirley's home. Do the have lights around the house? Are they "motion " activated. I know the monsters don't want to be in the light if it can be helped. And I know you said the cameras haven't been all that successful.

If they are drawn the one area in particular, like the bedroom window, the obivious place to put a discreet camera or light would be there. Just wondering, sounds like a real active place.

There are lights including...

by Monster Hunter

a motion sensor light at Ms. Shirley's home...weird thing when it comes on...we'll at times see what causes the light to come on, usually their dogs, but at times it comes on and there's nothing there...could be a bad sensor and we do have a video camera pointed in the direction that should pick up any movement...

I have a a night light only at Ms. Francis... At this time she has it unplugged since we moved the camera system to Ms. Shirley's where there was on going activity...but both places have on going activity so I need to put up another video system at Ms. Francis which I'll do...

One night while investigating behind Ms. Francis home I saw a slender tall something run from behind Ms. Shirley's home...saw this with my eyes since there was an outside light on and BTW using thermal I saw the Monster that has an over bite before I saw this thing run...looked to be around seven ft. tall...I do firmly believe this is the one responsible for the growling sounds at night especially when the ladies come home at night...I think he enjoys scaring them with his sinister growls...

The bedroom window at Ms. Francis home...it's on the south side of the home without any light at all...I need a .0003 lux camera hidden where I can monitor that area since there's not any light...

At Ms Shirley's...how the cameras are set there are some dead areas...seems the Monsters know about these dead areas...Doug was planning on moving a camera so we could see the north side of the home and front porch where there is some activity...

Trial and error...we do the best we can...Doug, when he comes in, has more then he can say grace over taking care of his home but does the best he can with his limited amount of time...I live about 2 hours away...bad knees along with a bad back limits what I can do at this time...going today to make an appointment to have my right knee replaced...get that one healed and going for the left knee...then the vertebrae in the neck...LOL...I am falling apart...
