Weekend trip was fun

by DonDon

but didn't really have alot going on, not even the Yotes.
Tim and I both had reports from the area we went to and he had a fresh one. After talking to a couple of the people down there, we know it's a good spot as lots of things have been happnin in this area over the years.

When we were talking to the person that was going to show us where we could set up, he asked which area we wanted to go to, he had 3 or 4 good spots we could sit out.
I do wish we'd have gotten there earlier cause we only had about 2 1/2 hours of daylight left. We'll make sure we do next time.

We did find a possible track though on the side of a 6 foot high berm. The pic is attached and you can see what appears to be toes. If it's not toes, it's some odd erosion that caused what looks like toes. There was what appeared to be a large heel track on the other sides as walk.
[IMG][linked image][/IMG]
[IMG][linked image][/IMG]


In this pic,you see me all stretched out, pointing. I'm pointing at what appears to be large tracks. Atleast the grass is knocked down like a large foot steps on it, crushing it.

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Here's the new trail cam setting out method. I used 60 lb test flourocarbon leader material to tie the bungies together, the I took a 3 oz weight and tossed it over the limb I wanted to hang it. Then it's just a matter of pulling it up, positioning it with a long stick and tieing it off. Easy setout, east retrieval. I set these 25ish feet off the ground in just 3-4 minutes each.
[IMG][linked image][/IMG]
[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Here's a few pics of the area we were at, lots of underbrush and animal signs. The area has lots of deer, racoons, Yotes, rabbits an Turkeys with water all over the place.

Last follow up

by Grumpy

The last follow up investigation conducted showed no sign of anything in the immediate area but did show signs of early human habitation. This was a very remote area accessible only via several miles of dirt roads and the initial report was possibly a monster passing through the area.

Ketchum was on local radio show just now

by MikeInNC

Ketchum was on 1110AM (WBT - Charlotte, NC) talking to Keith Larson. Keith is big on tongue-in-cheek, wink-wink, snarkiness. He claims to be serious/interested in the subject of BF, but then always brings up ha-ha stuff (like the infamous Zagnut candy bar bait use in that thermal footage).

Anyway, Ketchum said (in this short phone interview):

-She originally didn't believe in BF.
-Destination Truth sent her samples and (I guess after having been refenced) has receive LOTS of samples since 1995.
-Eventually she received some samples that got her interest.

-The blueberry bagel story (somewhere on the web - I'm not familiar with it) is not true.

-The mitochondrial part of the DNA comes out "human", which is why most labs gave up on BF samples.

-The samples from that Canadian project (Sylvanic) are promising and many have been collected by a PhD using proper collection methods (to keep samples untainted).

-Based on DNA evidence, hybridization (BF/human cross breeding) happened within 15,000 years.

I'm sure almost all of this is really old news for you guys, but I thought I'd post it anyway. Anything Keith said after the interview is not worth mentioning (the usual stuff about "why not get one the BF's leaving the samples?" - plus reading snarky emails from listeners).

There you have it....

I thought Todd Standing and his Sylvanic thing vanish into the dusty bin of BF hoaxdom some years back. So if they are mostly collecting smaples in a scientific way, and getting them from a org that has been proven to be BS in the past....

Hey Hogue,,,

by SAsquatcher

Yes it was in Eastern Tennessee but it was an owl.
What got it all going was me letting him know that there were sightings in the area we were speaking about and that I knew that these animals could and would also imitate Owl sounds as well as other forest critters.
Wayfarer and I have camped and researched in one of my areas in north ms before on a few occasions and have had some pretty good activity.
I will let him answer any more questions as I am not trying to speak for him,but just to give a little background.
I will say this though, with the number of sightings in his area, I think it has the potential to be a hot little spot, it has all of the right ingredients plus a history of activity!

The only way to know for sure is to talk to folks and research and just get out there and look.

Wood Knocks

by Circlewalker

I would like to compare the wood knocks from June and September. The wood knocks from June were much louder and I was much further away. In September the knocks were not as regular and were very much quieter and closer. At least twice in September the wood knocks were too close and I had to move into the open.

I am surprised at how clear the sounds actually were from the September trip. On the last sound clip in September there is a sound anomaly that is very subtle between 13-14 seconds. I am not sure why this is occurring but it sounds similar to the "trail in" sound anomalies I picked up in June. It may be some type of quiet vocal articulation.

I put these out there in case someone is experiencing something similar. I have been to another location where the wood knock was a single "whack" then silence.

This is the first wood knock taken in June. It was loud and I was standing outside the canopy on the perimeter of a field and was walking toward the creek. This was just outside of the first clearing.

Thanks for sharing

by Okiebear

Sounded kind of like woodpecker to me, but who knows? I've heard the single or double wood knocks several times. Only other time I heard a succession of knocks was about two years ago. Me and a friend had a fire out in the woods, sitting on the tailgate solving the worlds problems. Clear, brisk night with no wind about 40 degrees. Approximately 11:00 p.m. about ten knocks less than 100 yards away. Sounded like a lumberjack chopping down a tree. This was on my property where there should not be any other people. My friend, a skeptic woodsman actually brings it up occasionally as the most un-explainable experience he has had in the woods.
But it sounded different than this.
Thanks for posting.

Those are common sounds..

by EasTexSteve

Those are woodpeckers. In the first sound clip, you can hear them calling at the 07 second and 30 second mark. In the second clip, you are surrounded by them. You can hear them calling at 14,28, and 40 seconds onward. The sound in the third clip is hard to make out, other than it sounds like a bird. The fourth clip sounds like big, pileated woodpeckers. They hammer very loud. And, it looks and sounds like you are walking through a wet, or marshy area, which is where they like to hang out.

Snooping around....

by Timberghost

Searching through some old pics I found one I thought had been lost in a computer crash years ago, and I remembered the story that went with the pic and another it reminded me of.
The older story first.. During the events in Honobia, a local man told us of a story that happened just down the river 80 years before.... It's been a long time so I'm telling the story the best I can remember. There was a old man that had been having something come up on his porch at night and prowling around his place scaring his dogs and livestock. This had been going on for a while until the man had enough and laid in wait of whatever it was. One night he sat by the door with his shotgun with the ears pinned back. This whatever, as usual, came up on the porch as expected when the man jerked the door open seeing this huge black thing standing on the other side. The man let go with both barrels of buckshot right in it's chest blowing it back off the porch dead in it's tracks. The man was stunned and thought he had killed a large hairy black man so he panicked. He hooked up his team and dragged the thing across the river where he buried it in a peach orchard to hide it and wouldn't let anyone around. My brother and I did find the old peach orchard but found nothing that looked like a grave and we did no digging... This supposedly happened in the early 1900's... It was a local legend that many of the elders remembered...

The next story that goes with the picture happened in Honobia in 2000.
My brother was watching TV one night when he heard something on his porch. He looked around the door into the kitchen to see this HUGE black thing on his porch playing with his daughters rocking horse. And yea, he knew exactly what it was.. It saw my brother and growled really loud at him and started around the east side of the house going by the window above the sink. When my brother got to the window and looked out this animal grabbed a new metal gate my brother had put up and started growling even louder shaking the gate. He said he thought that critter was gonna completely destroy his gate. I was over there the next day and as he told me the story I walked around the house to look at the gate. I couldn't believe what I was seeing and only could imagine the power this animal had in it's grip, and how big it's hand had to be to do this....

Another pic I thought I had lost. It's only about a year old and found it behind the house...

Depends on who you are talking to...

by Monster Hunter

A few months back I got a lead on a man and his wife who supposedly had good to excellent pictures of a Monster...fishing on the Red River they trolled back in a neck and this Monster readily showed himself...the mans wife finally fished her cell out and began taking pictures...how many...don't know but more then several...

After speaking with the man, who seemed to be ernest, I sent him a couple of pictures and he was going to send me his...never received the pictures so I texted him without an answer so I called him...he had some lame excuse...wife was at work and as soon as she got home he would have her send them...apparently she hasn't made it home yet and this has been several months...

Now when I call, which I do about twice a week, he won't answer his phone but I'll keep calling and leave a message....

Maybe he thinks he has a picture that he can sell or maybe his pictures aren't as good as claimed but it pixixes me off that he's not a man of his word...

Think of the other benefits - if your clothes don't reek of cigarettes, it'll be tougher for the monsters to smell you coming :D

Don't let them dang smokes get the best of ya

by Go200mph

I started when I was 8yo. Quit when I was 48. Probably smoked about 37-8 years due to trying to quit a couple of times. I haven't smoked since Feb 18th 2008 and it definitely is best thing I've done for myself. I use to hack up a lung every morning for about 30 minutes then I'd light up another. Use to dip and smoke at the same time(don't tell me nicotine ain't a powerful drug). Don't do either now and yes I've gain 30 lbs but I stay in decent shape and my blood pressure has definitely improved.

Is Lindsay saying it was accepted. I don't think he is very reliable either. But after seeing examples of how DNA was collected, and having Ketchem already state that all the samples came back exactly the same...I don't think it is a far fling of thought for this to be shot down in flames by folks who wear rubber gloves when collecting things.

...you might want to recheck the date the. article was written: Dec. 26, 2011. Since then the paper has been rewritten with new additional authors from other disciplines, ad the journal required. It was granted another peer review, which should be nearing completion now.

From Igor today

by Crispy

Igor Burtsev
Yes, the paper of Dr Ketchum is under reviewing. And it is worth to be published. Just the situation now remindes me the war between North and South in the beginning of USA history... There are a lot of her supporters as well as a lot of her opponents and even some enemies...
The problem is that some people absolutize the science. Unfortunately science now is too conservative. One third of the population of the USA believes in BFs existing, but academic science even does not want to recognize the problem of their existing or not, just rejecting to dicuss this question. In such a condition this subject is under discussion of the broad public. We can't wait decades when scientists start to study this problem, forest people need to be protect now, not after half a sentury, when science wakes up.
Re the paper: the reviewed journals in the US refused to publish the paper. That is why Dr Ketchum has sent it to me to arrange publishing in any Russian reviewd journal. And I showed to our genetisits and understood that it was a serious work. I gave it up to the journal, now it's under reviewing.
Anyway, I informed public about the results of the study. The public waited for this info for more than a year, a lot of rumors were spreading around. And the public has the right to know it nevertheless "science" says about it.
5 hours ago

Blame it on the scientific peer reviewers, not the shoddy sample collection.

Igor might have a trick or two up his sleeve, but her DNA study would seem to be done.

I saw some one refer to her as Melba Toast.

I have thought this whole deal was nonsense since the beginning. None of the facts or explanations remain consistent.

Now he posts a completely different story. So there you go.

Now



Igor Burtsev
about an hour ago
I didn't suppose people, that you are so much seek of the publication in a reviewed journal. I though that more important is the result of study. And I informed the public about it in short.
But as you are so seek in scientific publication, I talked only about my side, I meant the publication in Russia. Yes, the process of reviewing here is going, but not so quick as desired. Yes, I submitted the
paper to a Russian journal. And the process of reviewing here started while the journal to which Dr Ketchum sent the paper, had not yet reflected the interest to publish it.
But Dr. Ketchum submitted the paper to the journal on your side again. And now they admitted it for reviewing. Thus, now a kind of competition arose: which journal is ready to publish it earlier and ensures her, that one will publish it. And another one will be asked to stop the process.
I explained such a state with publication in FB before, a couple of days ago. I thought that you know. But I see, some reporters wish to dramatize the state, and just a little correcting my words, pass some disinformation to make people exited.

The main thing that I see.

by SAsquatcher

Igor just doesn't know when to keep his big mouth shut!

If he would just let Melba release what she needs to when she needs to then we could get a good picture of what she is saying, but Igor keeps muddying up the water by not knowing enough English to get his point across in such a way that everything is understood perfectly.
I just want to know the full version of her paper, released by her!
Nobody appointed Igor as her press agent, and frankly if I were her, I would be more than a little pi$$ed by now.

At this point I am not endorsing it nor am I condemning it, I am just waiting until ALL of the facts are in before I render MY verdict.

Hair samples and DNA

by Crispy

If you go up to around 10 mins, he talks about how he collected the hair samples that were submitted to Dr Ketchem for DNA. He used packing tape wrapped around the tree trunks.

I guess that is what they mean by

We were able to collect multiple hair samples using innovative new methods

Watch him put the tape on the tree

http://bigfootevidence.blogspot.com/2012/11/scott-carpenter-shows-us-how-he-got-dna.html

He touches it everywhere.

I dont know if he does or doesnt have critters there. But I find his hair sample collection method to be seriously flawed. If this is what they are using for DNA, it is no wonder the samples all come back Human with anomalies.

He is credited from Paladies as being a major contributor for the hair samples they tested. I give him credit for trying, but I would think every sample is contaminated with his DNA.

There is a little bit of sarcasm involved here.

by SAsquatcher

Yes I know that I have made a similar post before but my point is, under normal circumstances, you just don't confuse a.Bigfoot with a Bear.
There are of course exceptions like when brush is obscuring your view, brush or rocks or other things.
One good rule of thumb, when you go into the woods, don't go in thinking Bigfoot, instead be open to the fact that there are other large animals, Bears, wild pigs, big cats, etc.
Having said that, only you know or sure what you saw, if you know for sure it was a Bigfoot, stick to your guns, don't let ANYBODY tell you that you didn't see what you know in your heart that you saw!
The world is full of closed minded people who won't believe anything until they have it walk up and knock them on the head anyways, don't be one of them.
Just remember, the woods is home to a large number of animals AND Bigfoot, not "except for".

A lot of folks just aren't familiar with wildlife. When I was taking cougar reports for the govt. here, I'd get photos of tabby cats and deer. If people don't know what they're looking at they speculate and convince themselves it's an animal what they want to see. One of the issues I have with a lot of bf enthsiast is that they have no outdoor experience and don't know how to identify wildlife sightings and sounds.

Robert Lindsey's blog...Ketchum...raped by a Bigfoot...

by Monster Hunter

Ketchums Bigfoot rape was not an actual rape. As I reported earlier to much condemnation, Ketchum claimed that she thought she had been raped by a Bigfoot. She went out to her pasture, had some sort of a lost time event, woke a couple of hours later after being unconscious and felt sore in her vaginal area.

I have now learned that she was fully clothed the whole time and wearing jeans. There is no way that a Bigfoot took her jeans off, raped her and then replaced them. Forget it. It now turns out that Ketchum does not think she was actually raped. Instead she was somehow mind-raped by a Bigfoot. I suppose thats possible somehow (dont ask me how), but it sure as Hell is weird.


I have no idea where Lindsey gets his information but at times I think he has one hell of an imagination...

Did ole BOBO Slip up?

by DonDon

I've always had my doubts about the Sierra killings. Guys a nutcase from what all I read about it which wasn't a whole lot. This does make things interesting though. We all know ole BoBo ain;t the sharpest tool in the shed and he may have slipped up. Who knows. Still doubt it all though but found this interesting.



Bigfoot News November 27, 2012. THEYVE GOT THE BODIES!

Those of you following the famous Sierra Kills story often wonder what happened to the bodies of the two Bigfoots that were killed at Mt. Haskell, California, in the Sierra Nevadas on that cold and fateful fall day on October 10, 2010. Many have expressed disbelief that one or more of the bodies were not recovered on that day or on later trips to the site.


I can now report that no less an authority than Bobo Fay himself has said that two bodies were indeed retained from the Sierra Kills aftermath at some point, either on that day or most probably later.
About 8-9 months ago, Bobo was at a Finding Bigfoot meeting for the show he is starring in. Someone asked him about the Sierra Kills and asked why no bodies were retrieved from the site.


No! Bobo replied. You dont understand! Theyve got the bodies!


This means that according to Bobo, both bodies from the Kills were retained at some point and are apparently being kept locked away somewhere for safekeeping.
According to the official story, Justin Smeja did not go back to the site until 3-4 weeks later when there was several feet of snow on the ground. After a day of digging through the snow, about 2 pounds of Bigfoot flesh was recovered. It was thought that this was from the adult male Bigfoot.


However, Scott Sandsberry, a reporter for the Yakima Herald newspaper, wrote a multipart series on Bigfoot last year. He conducted many interviews with all of the big players in the Bigfoot world. In the article about the Kills, Sandsberry stated unequivocally that after the Kills and before the digging in the snow trip, Smeja went back to the site with a prominent Bigfoot researcher. Note that this expedition has been elided from the traditional narrative.


In addition, Derek Randles states that he did not have the time or money to go back to the Kills site until 8 months later. But this cannot be true. Randles stated soon after he learned of the Kills, We have a team ready to go down there tomorrow. Apparently the expedition to the Kills site would be funded by Wally Hersom.
Bobo has made other hints that bodies were retained. In a recent episode of Conan OBrien, Bobo was asked about the Sierra Kills. Bobo said, The whole investigation is centered around those bodies. This implies that both bodies were retained and are being used in the study somehow.


In addition, on the Joe Rogan Show, Bobo was asked by Rogan if the bodies had been retained from the Sierra Kills. Bobo hesitated for a few seconds, and his jaw seemed to drop. He started to say something, but then he stopped. He asked Rogan, Um, can I talk to you after the show? Rogan said sure. Then Bobo launched into a spiel about how no bodies had been retained.
As we can see, Bobo has implied on two occasions and openly stated on the third that bodies were retained from the Kills.
Obviously the bodies, if they exist, have been squirreled away somewhere. So who has them? I and my fellow investigators do not believe that either Smeja or Randles has the bodies. If anybody has them, it is probably Wally Hersom.


Why were the bodies squirreled away? If they exist, we think that the bodies may have been hidden in part to preserve Ketchums study. After all, revelation of the bodies would have killed Ketchums study once and for all by showing it up. So the bodies were secreted away so she could be the first to discover Bigfoot. After all, a race is on now, similar to the race to be the first to find HIV in the 1980s. Then as now, many people want to be the first.


Another possibility is that Ketchum has a Hollywood publicist and a Hollywood lawyer working for her. These are very shrewd folks. They may have figured out that having Ketchums study associated with something as gruesome as the Kills, with two whole dead bodies, including a juvenile, horribly enough, was deadly for the study.


As one of my fellow researchers said, They probably figured that those bodies were Kryptonite for her study!
So in order to make something of the Kills, they sawed off a slice of the thigh of the adult male as a sample and stashed away the rest.
Assuming they exist, will the bodies ever see the light of day? No one knows. They may be hidden away forever, or they may end up being sold mysteriously to some millionaire in China.

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.

Once you state you are in constant contact via telepathy........well......I feel bad for all who have fallen for this, but the story has been screwball since the beginning.

And according to the news article, the samples were not from the 2 dead ones shot by a bear poacher (as was the original story), nor is it from 40 hairs collected from around the country (as was the press release, but from a single blueberry bagel left in someones back yard.

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. happy.gif
[...]

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. happy.gif

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.

Re: BS Flag

by Versatile

Wow! She is out there.

http://robertlindsay.wordpress.com/

http://www.cryptomundo.com/bigfoot-report/erickson-project-news-5/

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.

What I think

by Crispy

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.

I think she is probably looking for a way out of this self created mess right about now.

My opinion anyway.

I paid DNA diagnoscics for 2 veriSNP tests. They still have not done the tests after almost 6 months.
I used DNA diagnostics 3 years ago for 2 of my dogs to get the VeriSNP test. 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. THis Company took our money and ran!!

Paleo Indians

by Lone Wolf

Arrived earlier than 15,000 years ago as described by most scientists these days.
Other studies have cited dates as early as 23,000 years ago.

New discoveries at a Central Texas archaeological site by a Texas A&M University-led research team prove that people lived in the region far earlier as much as 2,500 years earlier than previously believed, rewriting what anthropologists know about when the first inhabitants arrived in North America. That pushes the arrival date back to about 15,500 years ago.

I have read

by Crispy

Studies that say 35,000 in an area in South America. But they never survive peer review, and the estimates get recalculated.

The oldest I know of that has survived peer review and is accepted it 13,000 some odd on the Oregon Coast. I am not saying 15,000 or older isn't probable. Just it is still in the proof finding, convince the committee part of things. I would not be surprised if eventually it turns out folks were here 40,000 years ago.

But I think it is genetically impossible for apes and humans to mate. 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.

According to this, what they published only goes back 13,800. Which would mean that is what the peer review agreed on. The 15,000 year date I think is probably his suspicion but not enough evidence to prove it yet.

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 anthropologists say that the Clovis first theory went out of style years ago, and that this study only puts the nail in the Clovis coffin.
Others are skeptical about this present finding, noting that OSL dating is less reliable than radiocarbon dating and that the sites deposits are potentially problematic because theyre located on an old floodplain and could have been transported by water.

the MH dna results

by SasquatchMS

you claimed it came back as primate, i was reading about all this Ketchum snazz and a scientist was questioning the methods she used and brought up some very unique and specific points about DNA sequencing..im not calling in question ketchums crap, but rather yalls "primate" results because judging by this statement:

"What method was employed to sequence the DNA? 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

Weekend trip

by DonDon

I got a message the first of last week from a fella that said they'd seen a smallish squatch going into an old trailer so we headed over to check things out. This is in central Mississippi and very near a swampy bottom. 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. The entire are near his house is not much more than swamps and low pasture land. You go down this road to get to that road, then hang a right and go here, then there. It's way back out in the country where most houses are atleast a 1/2 mile apart.

Nessa and I are going to get with another fella that's in our area that can get ahold to some thermal cameras and try to go check it out at night. We have to get some more permission to get onto some of the other properties though. I don't want to just sit on a road and listen, I want to get out in the thickets and do some major scouting.

Over all, it's a very good area with lots of animals for a food source, the man is honest and it's in an area that I know has activity.

Knew we Smelled something LOL

Re: Bigfoot DNA

I have seen other talk about this. Read post #18.

http://www.city-data.com/forum/politics-other-controversies/1740196-scientist-confirm-through-dna-sasquatch-hair-2.html

One does not need to by an expert to detect psuedoscientific bullsh*t. 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.

Here is an article posted up by Dr Igor Burtsev regarding Dr Melba Ketchums work on Sasquatch DNA.


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.

Head of International Center of Hominology,

Here is Melba Ketchums reply.

It is unfortunate that the partial summary of our data was released in this manner, however, I will be making a formal response in the next few days. Even though Igor Burtsev released this, it was not Dr. Burtsev's fault.

Dr Ketchum's OFFICIAL response/ statement.

by SAsquatcher


Below is our official response:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BIGFOOT DNA SEQUENCED IN UPCOMING GENETICS STUDY

Five-Year Genome Study Yields Evidence of Homo sapiens/Unknown Hominin Hybrid Species in North America

Contact: Robin Lynne, media@dnadiagnostics.com, 231.622.5362

DALLAS, Nov. 24--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, 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.

Because this will not change anything, and she has proven herself to bit a bit on the eccentric side.

And there is nothing wrong with being eccentric. Just no one takes you seriously when you are saying you have proof that Bigfoot not only exists, but has human nuclear DNA, and should be recognized as an Indigenous whatever.

If this makes it through peer review. Then we will see what if anything happens.

As far as I know, she was doing some testing for some of our members as well, so I think she is on the up and up.
We know that they are out there so every piece of evidence cannot be bogus even though we are extremely critical at times (Which is not necessarily a bad thing) but it is for certain going to be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt some day, maybe this is the day?
Yes, I still believe that it's gonna take a body, but DNA is a piece of a body anyways.
You cannot get DNA off of a Gnome or a Fairy or an Elf or a Hobbit or the Easter Bunny, but this is a real being/creature and whatever it is has left it's genetic fingerprint, that says that it is real.

So is a Chimp a human hy-brid?

by Crispy

http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/tj/v17/n1/dna

Or are we hybrids of Chimps? Or of apes, for that matter? How could something be a human hybrid if we are all in the same evolutionary tree? Someone has some 'splaining to do!

Since the beginning this story has had more hype than substance. Igor goes around Ketchem to release not the findings, but a PR about the findings, and what I assume he thinks they prove.

Then Ketchem is forced to put out a statement that clarifies what Igor released, yet does not explain the findings either.

Why?

Because it is probably still not final.

And just maybe, there is not a consensus. And just maybe they didn't agree that they found anything unusual.

Now I hear that they tested 40 hair samples.

I thought it was tissue from 2 dead ones shot by a bear poacher.

Hey, did he ever get in trouble for poaching? I don't think he did. Why? Because the whole story was crap. Fish and Game don't play with poachers, they toss them in the klink.

So far, nothing that has been released about this tale has panned out to be accurate. I see no reason to view this any differently

But Christmas is coming.........

My doctor said that I am a prime candidate for the same procedure so I am understandably curious, mine is for a different reason though, to correct the problem that makes me so pigeon toed.

New Knees...

by Monster Hunter

Should have done this a few years back Rick...it's been three weeks today...I can walk without my walker though slowly...drive my jeep and get around pretty darn good...My goal...walk without a crutch in 6 to 8 weeks...

Something about your knees...they'll let you know when it's time to replace them...I did both so I wouldn't have several down times and hurting is hurting so no big deal if one hurts or both...

First few days you'll not know or care what planet you're on and yes they'll get you up to walk the afternoon after the surgery...I could walk a bit but the next day I couldn't do anything...not one step without falling...Therapy...you have to do the therapy and exercise...walk, stretch and walk some more...I have a stationary bike coming in today or tomorrow so I'll spend a few hours a day traveling the wide open spaces of my living room......you have to do the therapy...you can bend your knees are they will...you don't want them bending which hurts...I worked on bending...hurts but it has to be done...only cussed one therapist...

Stay on top of the pain with the drugs...don't start hurting then try and catch up...I'm gradually cutting back...instead of every four hours I do six hours...should be drug free in a few weeks...

Hard part for me...I quit smoking...so far so good...21 days and counting but smoking is a terrible hard habit to break...

I may not be able to climb up in one of my deer stands before season ends but I'll be able to walk to it...

When I blew up

by Crispy

They told me with great authority that I would never have full range of motion in my arms again, and possibly my legs as well.

They sent me home with a big bottle of morphine.

And while I could not feel any pain with the morphine, I also could not do anything.

So I stopped taking them after a couple of days, and started to really work on stretching and movement.

And it hurt a lot. OK, more than a lot.

The morphine had me so goofed up I could not keep my balance. And not that I haven't spent a lot of good money to get that same effect..........I always enjoyed having my balance back in the morning.....

Persistence pays off. And they always send you home with really good pain killers!

You're right.
I also think that there are a whole lot of sightings that people don't report for fear of ridicule but I think that maybe that show is taking some of the edge off of that.
With all of the town hall meetings that they conduct and all of the hands that get raised, any fair minded person has to admit that there has to be something to all of this to get responses like that.
I am not particularly a fan either, but they are doing some good in raising awareness.

they need to do it similar to what les does on survivorman, film it themselves.....serious, and without playing to camera as they do....I know it is all for ratings and $$$, and general public knows nothing compared to people in here, but can wish they would make an effort, like stay in one area more than 3 days.....like 3 weeks/3 months

You hit the nail on the head.

by SAsquatcher

I have always thought that 1 or 2 nights is not long enough to get a good idea of just what all is out there.
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.

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.

Finding Self Respect

by Rich Daniels

There is no limit to the depth MM will stoop to in order to draw attention to himself...from charging people hundreds of dollars to go with his group for two days only to find nothing...claiming he can "call them in" whenever he wants...to this shallow, formulaic show. My wife couldn't understand why I watch the show with regularity when my comments about it were so negative all the time...I told her that I watch to learn what not to do and that there is no harm in it since we've never been a Nielsen family.

BTW, has anyone noticed that at every critical juncture where they stand to get a clear image or a real piece of evidence, something goes wrong with all that fancy equipment or Bobo makes some mistake that blows the opportunity? Coincidence or conspiracy?

Re: I was told...

From the way it appears on the show, everyone in the room knows where they are going to be "investigating". In my opinion, this almost completely invalidates anything that they hear while doing a night investigation. If you have a room with 100 people in it, it is an almost certainty that there will be at least one practical joker( or a 1% chance) in the room who will do what he/she does best when no one is looking (but when millions of people are listening). . .

the first episodes

by Cochise

were interesting due to the fact it was all new. Their ideas and procedures seemed good at the time. Now I don't watch it. I hate the drama they try to invent. I hate the same old walk in the woods routine. The eye witness now and then are the best part of the show. Too redundit for me with their formate.

years ago I inquired to be part of a group in Florida. When I was told how $ much I quickly declined. I thought if anyone got paid it should be me. I don't want to sound arrogant, but I thought I knew the area better than they did, and my "woods" experience was better than theirs.

I don't like the show or the people period.

Yep, sure does

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.

Tried it

by RubyRed

but no go. It said I already have an account but I don't remember IF it's under RubyRed or SWarren. And as for the password...CRS prevents me from remembering that, too. Any more suggestions? I sure do wish I could log onto your site as it seems to be a great one.

Something I can't seem to shake...

by Monster Hunter

Several months back Jake, Doug and I did a little late night snooping... Jake using the thermal was about thirty feet behind us when he asked where was Doug...Doug was to my left standing next to me...Jake in thermal saw something he thought was Doug walking to my right back into the tree line...whatever this was was only feet from us...Doug is about 6'1" and about 190 pounds...none of us heard anything throughout the night but we did get a few distance hits on the thermal...

That's downright CREEPY!

by SAsquatcher

It's one thing for the monsters to come in and act like monsters, that's expected.
But to come in under the cover of darkness and mingle amongst the group,,,sheesh!

Like we have always said,, they are some smart, slick and stealthy,suckers!

That's what bothers me...

by Monster Hunter

That big, that close, no sound even when it walked away...several folks I know, including myself, will tell you...something just ain't right about these Boogers...all good hunters know there aren't any game animals we can't successfully hunt..Monsters...darn near impossible...

That always bothered me too

by Lhofa

I have had them get right next to me at times without anyone noticing until the creature gets startled by something. For a while I thought it was only me losing my hearing. But it's more. There Is something not right about these things! But I can't definitely explain what is going on.

Like every other...

by Terry

creature in this world of ours it can only be because of stealth and or the ability to blend in to its environment. There isn't any other explanation imho.

New knees..

by Monster Hunter

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...

Welcome Back Jim.

by SAsquatcher

I hope that you are able to get back up and around ASAP.
I know that being down has to be driving you nuts, you are an outdoors type and being cooped up doesn't seem to be your cup of tea.
God bless and speedy recovery.

Re: New knees..

by Big D

Hang in there brother. Recovery is going to hurt, I'm sure of it, but remember "pain is just the weakness leaving the body". I know that sounds like a corny statement, but it really is the truth. You will back up and out in no time at all. I know you will whoop this thing!

I'm pretty hard headed Big D...

by Monster Hunter

I can stand the pain while working out but after a hard work out...pain pill & ice or I stiffen up like a fire poker...Wednesday...worked out and had an appointment to remove the staples...took a pain pill at 8 AM...therapy from 11 to 12...about 1 I reached in my jacket pocket...pain pills are not there...fell out in my daughters car with my wife picking me up...set in my wife's office for about an hour...so stiff I couldn't stand up without help...had to use a wheel chair at my next appointment...finally a pain pill at 4 PM...Jake drives me home about a half hour drive...by the time I got home I was pain free...the wonderful world of drugs...never have major surgery and misplace your pain pills...

Re: I'm pretty hard headed Big D...

"Better living through chemisrty" is a commom saying in my line of work. I'm glad you are able to get some relief with the meds. Hang in there and get better soon. I look forward to roaming around with you the next time I see you. Heck, taking a walk with you and Grumpy at the same time would be like walking on a football field with Bear Bryant and Vince Lombardi! I don't think it could get any better as far as experience and knowledge are concerned.
