Skinwalker

by Crispy

It seems that this Monday night Jesse Ventura's show on True TV will do one on the Skinwalker ranch.

Apparently the ranch has been closed up sine the book was written, and the DOD and some others have had an ongoing investigation there.

His show is usually pretty darn silly, but I have read they caught some interesting video.

Just a FYI for anyone who has read the book.

Sasquatch DNA at Last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by David J. Kaplan, Ph.D

Bigfoot DNA Sequenced In Upcoming Genetics Study
NOVEMBER 26, 2012
Five-Year Genome Study At DNA Diagnostics Yields Evidence of Homo sapiens/Unknown Hominin Hybrid Species in North America
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 24, 2012
A team of scientists can verify that their 5-year long DNA study, currently under peer-review, confirms the existence of a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called Bigfoot or Sasquatch, living in North America. Researchers extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.
The study was conducted by a team of experts in genetics, forensics, imaging and pathology, led by Dr. Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches, TX. In response to recent interest in the study, Dr. Ketchum can confirm that her team has sequenced 3 complete Sasquatch nuclear genomes and determined the species is a human hybrid:
Our study has sequenced 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species. Our data indicate that the North American Sasquatch is a hybrid species, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.
Hominins are members of the taxonomic grouping Hominini, which includes all members of the genus Homo. Genetic testing has already ruled out Homo neanderthalis and the Denisova hominin as contributors to Sasquatch mtDNA or nuDNA. The male progenitor that contributed the unknown sequence to this hybrid is unique as its DNA is more distantly removed from humans than other recently discovered hominins like the Denisovan individual, explains Ketchum.
Sasquatch nuclear DNA is incredibly novel and not at all what we had expected. While it has human nuclear DNA within its genome, there are also distinctly non-human, non-archaic hominin, and non-ape sequences. We describe it as a mosaic of human and novel non-human sequence. Further study is needed and is ongoing to better characterize and understand Sasquatch nuclear DNA.
Ketchum is a veterinarian whose professional experience includes 27 years of research in genetics, including forensics. Early in her career she also practiced veterinary medicine, anid she has previously been published as a participant in mapping the equine genome. She began testing the DNA of purported Sasquatch hair samples 5 years ago.
Ketchum calls on public officials and law enforcement to immediately recognize the Sasquatch as an indigenous people:
Genetically, the Sasquatch are a human hybrid with unambiguously modern human maternal ancestry. Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights against those who would see in their physical and cultural differences a license to hunt, trap, or kill them.
Full details of the study will be presented in the near future when the study manuscript publishes.

Squatchy in them woods

Dr. Melba Ketchum Shares Photo Of Sticks, Says Sasquatches Are Playful

Check out the photo above. We already know what you're asking: "What is it?"

My friends, what you're looking at are known as "stick structures". Bigfoot researchers believe these unusual stick formations are left behind by sasquatches. Some say it's possible that these sticks could be used as markers. Others believe that the sticks are some kind of intelligent message or symbol.

The photo above was posted by Dr. Melba Ketchum on her Facebook page. She's the person in charge of the purported Bigfoot DNA study (currently in peer-review). According to Ketchum, she has seen a few Bigfoots on this property, up to an "entire family of 5".

Here's what she wrote about the photo:

Thought you guys might like to see the interesting stick structure I found when I was out of state this weekend. The base on which the sticks were laid were two broken cedars that were growing beside each other. This was not naturally made. I found a number of very interesting structures besides this one. The Sasquatches were playful to say the least and I saw an entire family of 5. I never get tired of that. Left me some huge footprints for the next morning also. This post is for the enjoyment of those that like this page. It has nothing to do with the paper but I hope you that have seen these types of structures will enjoy the photo. Sorry it was a little dark as it was already dusk when I found it. Maybe some computer genius will lighten it and re-post it.
[...]

Sasquatch are known to make unusual stick formations in the woods. This is a great example of an unusual one. This area is remote and it would take someone with hands to make it and it is also an area that is not open to the public. Those that have a lot of contact with Sasquatch or read a lot about them will recognize this. For the novices, welcome to the indescribable world of Sasquatch!
[...]

I do this for my own enjoyment. I know they exist because of their DNA and also because I have seen them. I have nothing to prove so I would rather see and interact with them without a camera than to not see them. I don't care if people believe it or not. It is just enjoyable to me. I am very thankful that they trust me enough to come out. Of course I have always had a good relationship with many species so I think that they know I am harmless.
[...]

Most species can tell if you are a friend or a foe. Dogs, cats, horses, cows or any other animal can "sense" your presence if they want to.
[...]

There are a lot of people that see them easily like I do. Most just will not discuss it for fear of ridicule. I already have had a lot of criticism just doing the paper so I really do not care what people think or say or if they believe it or not...I will reiterate, I do this for my own enjoyment. The paper is serious but this adventure in learning about them is just for me.

BS Flag

by woodswatcher

I'm a Clinical Laboratory Scientist and Laboratory Director/Owner with the professional creditials to back up anything I say. Like others have said, if you have followed the story from the get go you would start to smell a problem. There has never been any consistancy and the drama behind the lab has been documented thoroughly.

This is not a major laboratory like the laboratories I would work weekly. The lab in question is no Univ Cal@ Davis or Univ of Chicago. If they want to make an arrangement with TVMDL in Texas to provide proficiency QC and confirmation of results- I'll start to listen.

The good Dr in question to my knowledge has provided no peer review or lateral study to other laboratories for confirmation. If I am wrong I apologize, but I have heard nothing to the contrary. but until numerous other labs can confirm findings and lay off the NO KILL propaganda I can't even distinguish it. I laughed out loud when one of the first things published was a NO KILL STANCE on something that has never been brought in as a dead carcass to the local spit and wittle for display to the locals.

I've been in the field for over 20 years now and can attest that just because you have an MD, DO, DVM or any other medical creditials doesn't make you an authority.

http://www.bigfootlunchclub.com/2012/04/melba-ketchum-has-history-of-failing-to.html

Details such as these:

1. Dr. Melba Ketchum's company is apparently not very good at doing DNA analyses of horses or cats, let alone "Sasquatch."

2. Her company's website claims that "The staff at DNA Diagnostics, Inc. also has published research on a continuing basis since 1988." But a search of relevant peer reviewed journals dealing with genetics and/or genetic testing can find not a single research report published by anyone associated with the company, to include Dr. Ketchum herself.

3. The same website says that she "is a past three-term Chairperson of the International Society for Animal Genetics Equine Genetics Standing Committee." Yet reviewing the biannual reports of that committee going back as far as 2006 can find no mention of her participation let alone leadership. This is also true regarding their committees on dogs and cats.

4. The same website claims that "Staff members at DNA Diagnostics have been accepted in court as experts in human and animal forensic DNA testing both by Frye hearing and by challenge in court for the prosecution and the defense and in criminal and civil cases as well as cases filed in Federal Court." Ignoring that the only "staff member" identified by the site is Ketchum, no such cases or testimony can be found in comprehensive online searches. A single case can be found where Dr. Ketchum was among a number of defendants who lost a patent infringment case back in February 2010.

5. The same website is such an amateurish mess that it even includes major headings that link to blank pages.

6. The curriculum vitae of "Dr." Ketchum is so thin that it is not even clear what degrees she might possess, or where she got them from. She does however seem to have managed to get a couple of TV show spots as some sort of "Bigfoot expert," something she appears to be fishing for more of.

7. Other than in credulous references to "bigfoot" Dr. Ketchum's online presence is essentially nonexistent.

is she accepted the samples at the beginning for the $$, as it looks as though her DNA lab is not exactly bringing in the bucks. When word got out she was accepting them, all the others brought her their samples. I think this all has gained her lab some needed publicity, and has backed her into the proverbial corner. She has likely been balking at releasing the data, as it likely comes out as human/ human contaminated at best. But folks want answers that sent her samples....so she tells them what they want to hear, and promises it will be out in a scientific journal - - just have to be patient and stay quite. Igor didn't stay silent, as he was very happy to be told what he wanted to hear. And now we have this chaos of conflicting statements and stories. She is clearly loony. She stutters and stumbles through her answers, constantly batting her eyes when she speaks. It is never the original crime, but the ensuing coverup that takes everyone down.

It was completed with in 8 weeks, and I got my test results. So I wanted to use them again with another pair of dogs. In January 2012 I sent in 2 sets of Dog DNA samples for the VeriSNP test (Both Swabs and whiskers of 2 dogs)to be completed as soon as they received a total of 25 dogs to test. I also supplied 2 40 bank certified checks equaling in 80. I helped recruit more than enough dogs to run the tests and even had enough people send in samples that they ran out of the 40-50 tests they had left on hand. I was informed that this would be the last set of VeriSNP tests they would run since the cost for them to get their tests had gone up and was no longer economical to keep the test going. I waited and watched the facebook groups which we recruited from in order to keep up on how many dogs we had send in samples and to see who got their tests back. I saw on one of these groups that two people from the dog registry were able to convince them to keep the test available but to keep costs down DNA diagnostics would require a higher number of dogs before they would order more tests. This test is a great tool for breeders so I was glad to see that they were going to continue the VeriSNP testing after our batch was completed. It was about in April that I saw posted on Facebook that DNA diagnostics had changed management, and that was the delay in getting our tests ran. From there it was 1 excuse after another. I started to call to check on my samples and every time I would get someone, the answer I would get is "I will check and call you back". They would never call me back. From there it escalated to all of us that sent in Samples. And a few weeks ago one of us finally got an answer by e-mail that they would not run our samples till they got something like 160+ samples in, changing their tune from the original of 25 dogs and going to the deal that was made to continue the testing after all the current samples were run and they ran out of tests. It is now August 2012 and still no one answers the phone, which is disconnected, emails, and the website is "under construction", and I still have not received my test results or a refund.

And I think it is very suspect that from looking at a DNA sample, one would give a definite time frame for such an event to happen. But it is a free country.

I could be wrong, but everything seems to be a copy of that one article, until you go to the University sites. And there the date is 13,800. So, there you go.

Some have interesting quirks. Which gene(s) were sequenced, i.e., which genes did you use to decide the Bigfoot relationship to humans? The statement was made that the mitochondrial genome is identical to human, but the nuclear DNA is distinct. Moreover, a 15,000 year divergence point is estimated. This is quite contrary to expectations. Usually, the genes in a mitochondrion will yield a faster evolutionary clock than the nuclear genes (higher mutation rate), that is partially why mitochondrial genes are used for the rapid identification of species. It seems odd that the mitochondria sequence would be invariant. This requires an explanation. How deep was the sequencing of the genes in question? To get at infrequent mutations, one must have gone over the same DNA multiple times to reach an accurate consensus. A single pass sequence will have many errors in it and comparisons based on it may inflate the apparent evolutionary distances. This is vital because Bigfoot and human sequences will be (apparently) VERY closely related. To get a feel for the challenges of working with closely-related species, search the work of Svante Paabo with Neanderthal DNA on PubMed. Are the gene(s) you used for the Bigfoot-human comparisons protein coding? Would the sequence changes you found in the homologous genes yield amino acid codons that are synonymous (no amino acid change), substitutions (new amino acids) or nonsense (protein chain terminated)? This can help one decide whether or not the new sequence makes sense or contains deletions/insertions and other errors. What was the nature of the sample from which DNA was obtained? Had it been exposed to the elements? How do you know it is from Bigfoot? If the sample is degraded, DNA sequences will likely exhibit alterations. How did they avoid contamination with authentic human DNA?" END QUOTE. as you can see the person asking question a ,Tyler A. Kokjohn, Ph.D., Professor of Microbiology at Midwestern University, has brought to my attention that regarding DNA sequencing results could vary depending on the methods used and how can you be so sure your results of "primate" were indeed legit when there are variables upon variables when whoever did your sequencing could have picked the "wrong" gene or protein or segment of DNA...point im trying to make...how can you be so sure? Belief should be reserved for religion only, and i dont think having a firm belief in an aspect of science and the potential propogation and existance of a species (whatever it is) is a very wise thing. thats all the science and philosophy i got today...just came to my head all this whilst reading. peace Posted on Nov 26, 2012, 2:19 PM from IP address 65.5.214.74 Respond to this message Goto Forum Home DNA or lack of... by Monster Hunter The blood grouping came back as the same grouping as the great apes...

On the way to talk with the guy, we stopped by a small local state park to see about camping there in the future and I tell you, every time I talk to one of these people that are over the parks, I come back with something. He was very receptive to the bigfoot idea and then went on to tell me about a panther that has been coming through the camping grounds lately. It's a very nice small state park and we will be over to camp soon. We arrived at the guys house for our initial talk and he's a very nice fella who has had something going on for years near his house. We talked about a couple of local legends that I had heard of and he even filled me in on a couple more that I didn't know about. I'm checking those out as well.

One need only be able to think critically and pay attention to the details. What details you might ask? Details such as these: 1. Dr. Melba Ketchum's company is apparently not very good at doing DNA analyses of horses or cats, let alone "Sasquatch." 2. Her company's website claims that "The staff at DNA Diagnostics, Inc. also has published research on a continuing basis since 1988." But a search of relevant peer reviewed journals dealing with genetics and/or genetic testing can find not a single research report published by anyone associated with the company, to include Dr. Ketchum herself. 3. The same website says that she "is a past three-term Chairperson of the International Society for Animal Genetics Equine Genetics Standing Committee." Yet reviewing the biannual reports of that committee going back as far as 2006 can find no mention of her participation let alone leadership. This is also true regarding their committees on dogs and cats. 4. The same website claims that "Staff members at DNA Diagnostics have been accepted in court as experts in human and animal forensic DNA testing both by Frye hearing and by challenge in court for the prosecution and the defense and in criminal and civil cases as well as cases filed in Federal Court." Ignoring that the only "staff member" identified by the site is Ketchum, no such cases or testimony can be found in comprehensive online searches. A single case can be found where Dr. Ketchum was among a number of defendants who lost a patent infringment case back in February 2010. 5. The same website is such an amateurish mess that it even includes major headings that link to blank pages. 6. The curriculum vitae of "Dr." Ketchum is so thin that it is not even clear what degrees she might possess, or where she got them from. She does however seem to have managed to get a couple of TV show spots as some sort of "Bigfoot expert," something she appears to be fishing for more of. 7. Other than in credulous references to "bigfoot" Dr. Ketchum's online presence is essentially nonexistent.

Urgent! The DNA analysis of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch specimen conducted by Dr. Melba Ketchum the head of DNA Diagnostics, Timpson, TX, USA has been over! Team of American scientists led by Dr. Melba Ketchum for five years has analyzed 109 purported samples of such creatures. The study has sequenced DNA of a novel North American hominin, commonly called Bigfoot or Sasquatch. There were a large number of laboratories associated with this study including academic, private and government laboratories in which blind testing was utilized to avoid prejudice in testing. Great time and care was taken in the forensic laboratories to assure no contamination occurred with any of the samples utilized in this study. After 5 years of this study the scientists can finally answer the question of what sasquatch really is. It is human like us only different, a hybrid of a human with unknown species. Early field research shows that the Bigfoot/Sasquatches are massively intelligent which has enabled them to avoid detection to a large extent. They are different than us, however human nonetheless. The hybridization event could not have occurred more than 15000 years ago according to the mitochondrial data in some samples. Origin of this hominin was probably Middle Eastern/Eastern Europe and Europe originally though other geographic areas are not excluded. The manuscript associated with this study has been submitted to a scientific reviewed magazine. For years people have refused to believe they exist. Now that we know that they are real, it is up to us to protect them from those that would hunt or try to capture them for research or for sport. They should be left alone to live as they live now. After all, they are our relatives. At this time, analysis of the Sasquatch genomes is still ongoing. Further data will be presented in the future following this original study. Additionally, analysis of various hair samples purportedly from Siberian Wildman are being tested in an effort to determine if relatedness exists between the Sasquatch and Russian Wildman.

Researchers extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species. The study was conducted by a team of experts in genetics, forensics, imaging and pathology, led by Dr. Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches, TX. In response to recent interest in the study, Dr. Ketchum can confirm that her team has sequenced 3 complete Sasquatch nuclear genomes and determined the species is a human hybrid: Our study has sequenced 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species. Our data indicate that the North American Sasquatch is a hybrid species, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens. Hominins are members of the taxonomic grouping Hominini, which includes all members of the genus Homo. Genetic testing has already ruled out Homo neanderthalis and the Denisova hominin as contributors to Sasquatch mtDNA or nuDNA. The male progenitor that contributed the unknown sequence to this hybrid is unique as its DNA is more distantly removed from humans than other recently discovered hominins like the Denisovan individual, explains Ketchum. Sasquatch nuclear DNA is incredibly novel and not at all what we had expected. While it has human nuclear DNA within its genome, there are also distinctly non-human, non-archaic hominin, and non-ape sequences. We describe it as a mosaic of human and novel non-human sequence. Further study is needed and is ongoing to better characterize and understand Sasquatch nuclear DNA. Ketchum is a veterinarian whose professional experience includes 27 years of research in genetics, including forensics. Early in her career she also practiced veterinary medicine, and she has previously been published as a participant in mapping the equine genome. She began testing the DNA of purported Sasquatch hair samples 5 years ago. Ketchum calls on public officials and law enforcement to immediately recognize the Sasquatch as an indigenous people: Genetically, the Sasquatch are a human hybrid with unambiguously modern human maternal ancestry. Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights against those who would see in their physical and cultural differences a license to hunt, trap, or kill them. Full details of the study will be presented in the near future when the study manuscript publishes.

If you spend a week or so in an active area ( day and night) I think that your chances will go up radically! These animals don't just move by night, just ask anybody that has had a daytime sighting. Posted on Nov 19, 2012, 10:13 AM from IP address 12.131.9.158 Respond to this message Goto Forum Home Let me amend that. by SAsquatcher If you spend a week or so conducting a " proper" investigation, ( not including a bunch of whooping and hollering) in an active area just doing normal stuff ( tree knocking optional) then your chances of a sighting MAY go up. Like anything else there are factors involved and I am certainly no expert by any means, but I do know that the more time that you are willing to put into anything, the better the results. I know that Timberghosts lives in a hot area but there are times that the monsters are on a different side of the mountain, or sometimes they are just quiet. You can't just pick a night or 2 out of a hat and expect results, you have to research it and find out what time of year they are most active, where their favorite hangouts are and when they are hanging out there and try to figure out why. It can be exhausting but it can also be rewarding. I know personally from my own experiences I have been in some areas and nine out of ten times nothing happened, but that tenth time I would get screamed at or eye shine or something, and that ( to me) made the other 9 times worth while. Patience and tenacity, that's what it takes.

Yep, sure does

by RubyRed

I'm up front with students and explain how I've never for sure seen BF but have friends who have had bona fide experiences with the critter. Some of them will then ask IF what they see on "FBF" is accurate and in response, I've told them if you wish truth and accuracy, talk to the researchers/investigators WHO HAVE found real evidence or have had unhoaxed sightings. Then I say those folks are NOT on any silly t.v. shows.

I explain, if you want to find out if Bigfoot is real, head for the woods of East Texas BUT don't go hunting for BF alone or unarmed...and the rest of them may research the internet. I always share the GCBRO web site and say, start your internet research with the best site I know. Kids ask great questions and very rarely are they skeptical or rude about the discussion.

New knees..

So far so good.. Thanks for the prayers and well wishes...pain killers are nice but kind of hard to stay focused more then a few minutes at a time...should be chasing the Monsters in a few months and it will be nice to be able to walk a few miles without the agony of the knees killing me...

Had a long talk with monster hunter this morning and he's doing as well as could be expected after double knee replacement surgery. Is progressing with physical therapy and trying to adapt to not being able to get out of his normal chairs once he sits in them, sitting is easy getting out is impossible!!! He said as soon as he can find a higher chair to sit at his computer table he will be back with us and thanks everyone for all their prayers and best wishes....

Hypothetical question.

by SAsquatcher

You are camping, you have a .44 magnum under your pillow, you wake up in the middle of the night and hear something huge outside of your tent and the moon outlines it perfectly, it is a Bigfoot and it is rubbing it's hand across your tent.
You know exactly where it is, do you shoot at it?

Hypothetical question

by Grumpy

IMO that is no different than what is referred to as a Brush Shot, where inexperienced hunters shoot at noise without seeing/positively identifying their intended target. And you have no idea how many of his/her family is also there waiting for a snack or left overs.

I agree Bob.

by SAsquatcher

Unless that sucker is trying to rip the canvas ( or vinyl) open to try and get at you, I say hold off until you SEE what it is that you are shooting at.
That is why I like at least a pop up camper, you can put a little more than a thin layer of canvas between yourself and whatever is out there,( wolves, coyotes, bears, or what have you).
Never shoot at shadows or sound, always be SURE of your target.
Remember, once you send that bullet out there, nothing in the world can pull it back!

No way am I taking that Shot

by Go200mph

Shadows don't make the monster, and it could be your good friend, brother, etc who knows you are camping, looking for Bigfoot, there to play a trick on you. Any gun advocating individual will always tell you to make sure of your shot and seeing something as a shadow doesn't meet that criteria. Now if that shadow becomes violent towards you and begins attacking you and you become fearful of your life, at least in Florida, the law protects you. Since, even if it turns out to be a human, you have the right to protect yourself.

Re: Hypothetical question.

by sasquatchms

id shoot directly out the top of the tent to scare whatever it was off...the bullet once reaching its maximum altitude would then fall at terminal velocity back to earth not hurting a thing

addendum: A free-falling object achieves its terminal velocity when the downward force of gravity (FG) equals the buoyancy/resistance force of drag (Fd). This causes the net force on the object to be zero, resulting in an acceleration of zero.[1]

As the object accelerates (usually downwards due to gravity), the drag force acting on the object increases, causing the acceleration to decrease. At a particular speed, the drag force produced will equal the object's weight . At this point the object ceases to accelerate altogether and continues falling at a constant speed called terminal velocity (also called settling velocity). An object moving downward with greater than terminal velocity (for example because it was thrown downwards or it fell from a thinner part of the atmosphere or it changed shape) will slow down until it reaches terminal velocity

Rounds don't get discharged unless there is real need and adequate certainty of the target. Besides, with a .44 magnum you might not remember if you fired six shots or only five (Gratuitous Dirty Harry reference).

Cautionary Tale

by Rich Daniels

Anyone headed to the Four Corners area (where New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona border) please contact me before you leave. My investigation there a few weeks ago resulted in my walking up on a pot grow and getting shot at over a dozen times! The Feds forbade me to share any information about the incicent until my deposition was officially entered into evidence, which happened yesterday.

When you go out, please please please be careful and watchful for more than just monsters! I will gladly share the location of the small valley I stumbled into with anyone intending to work that area.

You'd Be Surprised

by Rich D

It's actually more widespread here in New Mexico than you'd think. I'm told that it's the fifth major field found here this calendar year. My problem is that I have only been here a couple of years and don't have established research areas like most of you have been able to identify. Although it appears that Darrell and I will be combining our efforts in the near future in an area of recent activity. Just don't take it for granted that an unfamiliar area has only the usual hazards...this was an eye-opener for me.

Garden of the Month!

by Mr. Phelps

A few years back, myself and another member were scouting this island in the Atchafalaya River Basin. We were following up on a report by two fishermen having a sighting in this area. The report was several months old when it got to us, but we did find what looked like an old bedding area very near the location. Having tied the boat down we were walking a ridgeline when we stumbled on four of five very nice marijuana plants cultivated along the ridge! This was small time stuff, and I dont think we were in danger, of course it would have been a hell of a shoot out, but just goes to show you what you may find in the woods!

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.

I see it. I am sure it is something ! Day time sightings are not all to common. They must feel pretty comfortable. Maybe offer them a beer or ice tea.

Do they ever show aggression?

From my perspective...

by Monster Hunter

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...

does she want picture for evidence like to show to the world or just pictures to send to you to assess the situation? ive got a movie film camera , the same type of camera used to shoot major movies and commercials and music videos, it also does still photos, i mean waht are the chances of being able to camp out there for like 2 or 3 weeks and actually get some decent 100% footage of these things? Hell you know I dont wanna shoot one w/ a gun. just pics , films...whats the hold up on that?

if you believe they were taking the fried chicken you were leaving before ...how about leaving some up on that gas tank with the camera aimed that way. The gas tank seems like it's sitting more out in the open than the shed. I just find it hard to believe these critters are a lot smarter than we humans and we can't trick(or treat) them into being videoed or captured on a trail cam. Very aggravating!
