I am looking for a used camera that uses real film, not digital! Remember back in the early 80's when the Nikon F-3 was THE camera to have?? Are any of those around still? I want to get into the hobby, Kelly and I want to take a course out at Hinds or somewhere on Photography just for fun, but we want to learn how to do it right and to develop our own pictures, especially black and white film. Considering Bigfooting, I think basic camera skills can come in handy.
You will probably have to visit a camera shop or photography store. Film cameras are still around but they can be expensive since everything is going digital. Film is also getting hard to find and expensive. Make sure you get one with interchangeable lenses. Nikon is a good brand, also Canon optics are very good.
some real good outfits at some local auctions go for next to nothing. Maybe put an ad out there. Lots of folks still have good cameras and don't use them now that we're in the digital age. Good to see someone interested in the older technology. You can't beat a good black and white photo that's been developed by the photographer who took it.
thrift shops get older made cameras since people have the newer technology now. You may pick up a good one and you may even find film there. Check the classified ads in the local newspaper also.
American Bigfoot scientists and researchers felt hoodwinked by Russian Yeti event...by Monster Hunter
Well now...it appears Meldrum can't be hood winked by the Russkies...just because there were a few cut marks on the broken trees, a convenient well used path to a cave with a Yeti nest, a hair found but not in this nest doesn't really mean the Russians were hoaxing just a tad does it?...c'mon Doc....these folks are professionals aren't they?...
ya i felt sorry for Meldrum...he's a good guy
you'd say that? These let downs and scams are normal I guess but they just enforce to the public that there is probably no such thing as bf and it no doubt hurts the legitimate researchers who are trying to proove different. Personally I find these sorts of things disappointing.
Yesterday Oct 25,2011 an article on the front page of the Wall Street Journal about BF in Russia; mentions a woman in Michigan named Robin Lynne. She states that she feeds BF in her back yard. I have not heard of her. Has anyone else?
Robin Lynne...by Monster Hunter
IMO is delusional as are the many folks who claim habituation...
who used to dress BF up in overalls and play Barbie's with them in the poop barn?
LOL...She received a report...by Monster Hunter
from a lady that claimed she saw a BF wearing overalls...a kind of habituation episode that involved the ladies dad who she claimed worked for the government...I think he did but as an inmate in the prison system since he would disappear for several years at a time...more then likely moon shine...
Poop barn is a complete different tale but was told by her...
I remember that,,,by SAsquatcher
It was "Little Sam".
I also remember you and Bobby saying,,"There ya go, all we have to do now is buy some overalls and throw at them and when they get all tangled up in them trying to put them on we can bust their a$$".
Or something to that effect.
He's on our side...one of the good guys and if anyone in this thing of ours wants to make a statement so be it.
I'm an idiot but you always gave me a place to speak.
I met Jeff weekend before last. Got a great interview. He is a nice guy.
How is everyone doing?Been doing great since last weekend! DonDon you got to show me how you do the monster call,because I tried doing one yesterday and it sounded pretty pittifull.Hope we can do that again sometime this summer.
Just listen to the call several times and get out in the woods and let her go man. Practice man, practice. I been working on my Bionic bird call since we left and figured out what I was doing wrong. I got it down ALOT better now
Just got back from picking up me a new truck. 2006 Z71 4WD with only 58k miles. I can get on back in there and get em now!!!
Your new truck for toting around your new granddaughter....don't you?
Priorities my man LOL
That a great looking truck. I have the same truck but with 71k miles and blue and I love it! That was the same truck I pulled a couple of people out of the mud at MC...... and got pelted with mud after pushing SOMBODY's white jeep cherokee!
Some advice...by Monster Hunter
The truck is not set up for mudding...to clean, no lift and no winch...stay on some hard ground or you'll do some walking looking for a trator to come and get you since you'll be able to get further in...
Been There and Done That
BTW...nice looking truck...and when you get stuck you'll remember the advice...
a Toyota Tacoma 4x4............
but I'll be able to get down some roads that I couldn't before. Save me a little walking but it's way to loud to drive it close in to where I'll be researching
AND the Fiance is working...let's go! Seriously, I am ready, map in hand.
of I would. Either the 5th or the 12th of Nov though, it's on
I drove out to the get-together location we met up @ last saturday night. Anyways, I crossed the area we parked our cars at, and about 100yards past that suddenly chills shot through my entire body, I felt nausea, confusion, fear, and this odd thumping pressure on my head like as if an invisible forces was pulsing through my body and was leaving me on the verge of passing out or rather just wanting to lay down and hope it passed. I was driving my car at the time, as soon as I realized the further I drove in the worse it got (took all about 5 seconds before I couldnt tolerate it any more) I hit the brake and threw my car in the other direction, 100 yards in the opposite direction and the effects bled off rather swiftly.
The ride down there was uneventful, I felt no odd body sensations or ticks or anything I felt normal. During the day I had drank at least 1 to 1-1/2 quarts of water,8oz coffee, and half a gatorade so I was hydrated rather well for not exerting any real stress or physical activity for the day. I've been on the fence concerning infrasound, last night I might have had it happen to me, because I cannot come up with any reason why suddenly those symptoms and things started happening to my body. It was extermly odd.
Although I was inside my car w/ engine noise, and my windows up...I could sense some sort of extra noise coming from somewhere, it was corresponsing with the increase of pressure on my body and the way the symptoms manifested and seemed to escalate like there was a corresponding force white noise that automatically began its onset when I crossed some sort of invisible boundary. It was profound.
My thoughts are that the energy level to produce waves of a magnitude that could do that to you inside a vehicle at those kind of distances would be far beyond what even a very large animal could muster. Your talking about military grade energy levels.
well see infrasound travels through trees, however metal? im wondering myself, as I said im on the fence about the idea of an animal producing such an extreme effect, however there is documentation suggesting its possible. Dolphins use it to stun and confuse their prey. I dont know, it was just weird as hell.
IF I remember correctly, elephants have been recorded using ultra low frequency/infrasound and this supposedly lets them communicate with others a mile or more away.
So what would 100 yards or so be for some other large creature with that capability?
Also, with the many reports I've read on the web (grain of salt, sure), either quite a few people have been zapped by BFs - OR - BF researchers need to start wearing tin foil hats because they're being targeted, for whatever reason, by military assets while in they're out in the field looking for mythical beasts?
That don't add up.
I just think that it's a severe case of anxiety. I've had an anxiety attack before and what you just described is exactly what I felt. I just don't believe it infrasound
lol well that really sucks
Good answer Don...by Monster Hunter
I've seen a few get overcome by anxiety...
One person was hearing and seeing things the other two of us couldn't...had to remove his butt from the area before he freaked out on us...
out by one of these creatures and say they get all confused and disoriented. That's just plain out FEAR right there. Their minds can't comprehind the odor at that moment and they get confused and scaterbrained
I've seen a few get there brain scrambled from the stench...by Monster Hunter
Had no idea where they were and what they were doing but could remember smelling a horrible smell...LOL...drove to a man's home late one evening...he met me at the door asking did these Monsters have a stink to them...yes they do and yes one did at his home...one of the worst I've ever smelled...
Panic attacks are more common then thought especially within a group...one gets panicky causing others to panic...kind of like screaming fire in a theater...or being lost...now being turned around in an area is tough but being lost and I mean no idea where you are will cause a person to panic...all hunters that walk in unknown areas get turned around a bit...have some idea of the general direction but not quite sure...
Years ago I took a man squirrel hunting in Lincoln Parish...he hunted the creek and I hunted an area I knew was full of cat(grey) squirrels...about 10 AM he hadn't shown up at the truck...I heard him shoot a couple of times but each shot was further down the creek...I walked in about a mile looking for him when I heard a horn blow back by our truck...walked back out and there he was...caught a ride after walking about five miles to the highway and catching a ride some twenty miles back to the truck...yes he got lost...wasn't a dry thread on him and not one squirrel...
and I ain't gonna lie. I was SCARED so I backed out of the area. When I came back with a couple of other folks, the smell was gone and my nerves were alot better. I was literally shaking when it hit me.
Funny thing is,,,,by SAsquatcher
You don't always get the smell put on you when they are present!
It's the ones that don't put out that smell and tippy toe up behind you that get me neck hairs standing up.
Specially when you're taking a leak and they sneak up behind ya BWAAA HAHAHA
Don't I know it!by SAsquatcher
What kind of monsters are they to sneak up on a fella watering a tree,,,DIRTY DOGS!
Can't a fella get some privacy in the woods,,LOL.
also can produce the symptoms of nausea and light headedness.
To a "T." There is a spring, Blackberry bushes, deer racoon, beaver, giant fresh water mussels, and plenty of canopy and undergrowth.Plenty of ambush points as well. I will also state that the cane/grass/reed area is the first time I have felt deathly afraid that something was in the grass area with me. On the way out I saw a trail bigger than the one three of us made on the way in that intersected our trail.
Great point for further research.
My areas now...by Monster Hunter
Dusty with little to no water...mostly pine thickets with plenty of briar's...walked the creek late Saturday afternoon...not enough water for a drink and not a good one...ground is as hard as a rock even after the rain...maybe that's why the Monsters are quiet...dry mouthed...
One area of interest I'm getting reports of some Monsters screaming...probably because they need some water...in all my years I haven't seen the ponds, lakes and creeks this dry here...down at MC I saw a small turtle wade the mud to the middle of what we once called a pond...not enough water to cover his back...two of the ponds have deep water wells so they are both full...Jake and I need to check the banks around them to see what critters are coming for a drink...both are in open areas...to open for Monsters IMO...
20 yards from a pond taken on sunday
Nice...by Monster Hunter
Looks like he may be full grown...
First and foremost, I think it's food and water with a small human population coming in 2nd.
We (GCBRO) will get a report in or I'll get a report from an individual and when I go to investigate it, that first thing I look for are food sources and water locations.
Is there alot of different food sources that will last year round? Food sources I look for are berries, fish, crawfish, mussels, deer and many small critters like Rabbits and squirrels.
Water location is important as well. Where is this water source? Is it a lake out in the middle of a pasture and the closest thick woods are a 1/2 mile away? That's not a good source. Now a natural spring in a hardwood bottom with real think cane breaks and pine thickets, that's a place that I would think would be a perfect location right there.
The location we were at this past weekend has it all IMO. Several creeks in the general area with swamps, cane breaks, new growth pine thickets along with hardwood bottoms and plenty of ambush locations. Really, it reminds me of Monster central alot with the terrain and types of timber.
Asa I walked around, I found Huckleberry bushes and even brought some back with Mary Ann ate LOL. There's crawfish all in the lake we were at plus I know there's Muscles in the lake as well. All are real good protein sources.
Lastly IMO is human population and proximity. Where we were at this weekend, there are very few people nearby. Most times you'd see a couple mobile homes and/or smaller houses all bunched up together, then nothing for several miles, then more all bunched up. All these things add up to a good location
What's ya'lls thoughts?
What you mentioned Don...by Monster Hunter
Over the years that's what I have found to ring true...hunting season will move them closer to the rural homes more so then thought especially around the non-hunters homes...seems as if they like the homes without men which could mean Monsters fear man but not women...one area I'm working the ladies husband works off shore...though he has heard some unexplainable sounds and noises these sounds and noises seem to escalate when he's gone to work...I did take a picture of an old large track in the sand there Sunday...little definition but never the less a Monster smudge...
This past Sunday a lady mentioned Monsters coming around and not liking mobile homes...IMO folks buy these homes placing them on property in areas where there are Monsters...over the years I've received reports from folks who have done this...
Check out your topo mapsby Grumpy
Don, there is a road from the south and then a short trail that goes right to where the two creeks meet, lot closer walk than from the end of the road we were on..... check it out.
my buddy says natural funnels and chock-points in the terrain are what they utilize for ambushing and killing deer, topo maps are a must for this detailed assesment of an area. Nothing can substitute for on the ground surveying of an area. When I go out, I usually Google satellite an area and look for at least a 1km area of un-molested forest to browse...thats always a good start in rural areas.
Their better than they were but some of the Aerial photos are OLD and may be clear cut. Don;t ask me how I know this LOL
...about the place we were in. Zero traffic. Living in the city you get used to cars and even late at night the occasional car will pass down my loop. During the hours we were there not one single car passed our location or none that I heard. You become acutely aware of this when it's missing. Sounds of people.
No low altitude airplanes either, All that passed over were high. So no airport nearby. No skylight from a local town or city either. Other than the sounds of the woods it was totally remote. You could hear owls far in the distance and closer by.
Don did some calls and even those in the bottoms said they didn't hear it. People walked out of radio range and didn't encounter people or homes as far as I know. We were far enough from the lake to not hear the people there either.
Up the road were some hunters but they appeared to turn in soon after dark. When Don would do a call you could hear the echo easily.
If there is a middle to nowhere, we were there. LOL
I think Grumpy walked far enough to find a highway. He covered a lot of ground that night. So did Joey.
And again, on that dirt road while we waited for Joey to come back not a single car came by. The field we were in had been plowed but during the night not a single soul was around.
It is as Don described it, a prime location for monsters and I think we heard a few. But in this area there is so much territory to move around in the critters had plenty of area to move through. We probably caught a few passing by.
Deer hunters will probably fill this area when the gun season opens so critters may move closer to civilization. However that night I didn't notice a single deer. I'm sure they are there but they were unusually quiet and not moving around. None on the side of the road either.
Don, you couldn't have picked a better location. IMHO.
when they close down the park we were at. It's going to be a prime place to check out.
From what the older man that oversees the place said, they lock down the gates from December 3rd til mid March.
HUMMM, Hunters all around the place on National Forest property and this place they can't hunt at all. Sounds like a PRIMETIME location to me to investigate.
I'll talk to the National forest folks and see if I can't get permission to go in during the off season and with the park closed. Almost sounds to perfect
That primitive hunting camp we passed Saturday night may be a good base camp during non-hunting season. Seemed big enough. Close to an cement road and close enough to the area you are interested in.......
There is no reason a human soul would be in that deep. No one lives there. You are right Don, once you can't hunt there and you can't fish, no human would be in the area. Unless you just like traipsing around in the cold and dark late at night for no reason, (other than to look for critters), I doubt you would find anyone for miles.
If they do this annually then the critters probably already know where to be during hunting season, smack dab in the middle where we were. It's safe, there is plenty of food and water and no pesky humans to bother you.
Don, I think you found Sasquatch Heaven.
And had some action as well as Torrey who cound teepee structures n had some other things happen. Barry. When gun season opens just before Thanksgiving that whole area is gonna be slam packed with folks so its going to push the creatures somewhere. Now to figure out were. Im kinda thinking the place we camped could be one place but im going to chech out up and down stream along the creeks that were there. Nice to have a place less than 2 hours away
WHEN ya'll go, please include me. I will do whatever is necessary to get off work.
When we go back in November we can do a little recon and map GPS locations around the area, where the trails are, etc. Do this in the day so when we or others go back at night in December all the places are marked? Look for sign too. I bet that field may have some along the edges and down around the creeks.
Plus I'd like to get back in the woods with Don soon too.
It IS Bow season right now
Agricultural areas and the types of crops being grown. The deer population and their migration routes through these areas. Natural hiways used by the wildlife into the region. And Apple trees. The ones in southern michigan uses Apple trees as markers which i cannot explain but they do.
Sorry I couldn't make it but that ugly word...by Monster Hunter
work had me down for the count...nice pictures and I do believe I recognize a few of those folks...
Had a few new folks that wanted to meet ya. Next time though for sure
We had a great time seeing some very dear old friends. Bob, Ken, Rogan, Barry, Jay and all yous guys spouses.
Then add in some new blood along with the guys from here in Mississippi and one from Tennessee and it all ads up to a great time.
We even had some action sitting out Saturday night. We took about a dozen people out that night and went into a few different locations, all near the bottoms. We (Nessa, Jay, Mike, Rogan, Gary, Joeys brother in law and myself, were sitting down in a plowed green patch about a 1/2 mile off the dead end dirt road, had something thrown in between Nessa and Mike.
I don't think it was a rock and it wasn't something falling out of the trees. I've been thinking about it and it HAD to be a dirt clod since we checked the are it landed and there was only dirt, that's it. I think something eased up into the field, grabbed a dirt clod and the moved around and threw it at us. in my mind, that's the only thing that could have happened since nothing was found at all where it landed.
Tell ya, I've had things happen when I've let out a call but it seemed like this night, that every time I screamed, the woods came alive. The owls went off each time and then one time, we got the bionic not once but 8 TIMES coming from behind us. It wasn't stationary but moved at a constant pace. moving in and then away from us.
This is one beautiful area and I will be back down here doing research on many occasion.
Course it helps that it's about 1/2 way towards my new grand daughter, motivation in itself to head that way!!!
Thanks so much guys for coming and those who couldn't make it, you really did miss a wonderful time, not only researching but just the fellowship we had. We have the best group out there with alot of no nonsense researchers.
Thanks guys and can't wait to see ya again.
PLEASE never give away an exact location when asked, just a common courtesy. Just say central mississippi when asked.
I too just want to say it was a great time this past weekend. So good to see the familiar faces as well a meeting some new people. I have really missed these get togethers & am looking forward to future ones. Really looking forward to getting back out & doing some more research as well.
for hosting the event and for all of the great food and company. Like someone said the pulled pork was great. Jambalaya was OK, but I need to show you how a coonass makes a jambalaya tho. LOL The chili Barry's wife cooked was awesome too!
Beaver or Raccoon in in Ken BWAAA HAHAHA Sho am glad you made it and that we had time to sit and BS
never use beaver in my jambalaya..............hmmmm...........maybe coon though! LOL
beaver and whatever else the guy could shoot in his stew back when I was a teen. Only nasty thing was a dang possom, GROSS, It's real greasy
Possum?...by Monster Hunter
Did you have to lick your butt to get the taste out of your mouth?...nasty little creatures that will eat anything...years back when I ran coyotes with dogs we would go to the dead cow pile to turn our dogs loose...sometimes the only critter that came out of a dead cow was a possum...
But...I do think Monsters have a taste for them or else they're extremely hungry...walking trails by the shot gun stand I've seen dead possums on the ground, eyes wide open with me thinking a live animal...turned them over and the hide was neatly cut from the head to the tail and not a piece of meat anywhere...
I Agree Jim,,,by SAsquatcher
Nasty little varmints they are!
They will start eating in the rear end of a dead cow and eat their way right out the front.
Disgusting little critters but at least they do help clean up the woods.
too everybody for a great weekend and good food..... Very pretty park.
...for a great weekend! Thanks to all who made it a great venture!
What's wierd is this is the first time that you and I have been out in the woods and we've known one another since 2007 or so.
barry was one and here's the other one. When shining the lights, I didn't notice any fog but I guess it had since it shows up in the pics. Here's that pic and see the Orbs?
Weird pic! I didn't see any fog out there either!
Easily explained.... this fog was created after bear walked the path, all that chilli does have side effects....................................
It was hurting me and everyone else around me walking around that night LOL DANG GOOD stuff though
It maybe what they call spectral mist and yes, you do seem to have an orb in the shot, too.
Was that what you were asking?
I MAY have had a cigarette going when I was picking up the camera LOL
Boy, he sure is one UGLY joker, ain't he LOL LOL
I'd expect nothing less
I did have enough time too see that light and know it was going to flash so I was swinging my arms like Patty........
Coming back from the Ms Meeting Edith and I had a little adventure trying to find my grandparents old homestead in Jasper county. It's been years since I was there. Growing up we would visit when I was a child. It was here that my grandfather (PawPaw) told me about "Swamp Apes."
After some driving I found the old homestead!
This is what it looks like now. Back in the 80's they did some work on the house and I heard in the 90's it was rented out for a while. Now it has fallen back into ruin and looks nothing like it did when I was little.
This view is looking up from the house to my aunt and uncle's old barn.
In 1973 Boggy Creek came out and about a week later we went to my grandparents house. This is when I asked my pawpaw about foulk monsters and he told me about the swamp apes that would come up to the pond behind the house. My grandmother referred to them as "nasty" which made me think she must have seen them doing something immoral or lewd. It was something of a taboo subject but pawpaw would go fishing with a rifle. He said, "As long as they stayed on their side of the pond he wasn't afraid of them." But he kept the rifle handy anyway.
I remember well taking baths in a wash tub, drawing water from the well and back then they only had an outhouse. Yes, it was rural then and now. Originally this was an old shotgun house with only one power line running to it and they had a single bulb in the living room for light. They did have a propane tank for fuel and a stove by the 70's. Before that mawmaw used a wood stove.
Anyway, pawpaw was well aware of the swamp apes and referred to them no different than any other animal in the area. But it wasn't a topic of discussion so getting info was not easy back then. I do have a few stories if anyone is interested.
I had not been to this area since the late 70's but now I think I will make contact with the current owners and see if I can go poke around behind the old house soon, and go down to the pond back there. Plus I want to take more photos of the old house and maybe some video too. If for no other reason than to have some home movies.
This place brings back many old memories and the scary stories I heard as a child. My pawpaw had a 6th grade education and was not prone to making up stories. His actions told me the critters were there, as he always took a rifle or shotgun down to the pond. He had a little pistol to shoot snakes with. Obviously the rifle and shotgun was for something much bigger. My mawmaw didn't like talking about them, she would just get quiet and seemed disgusted when I would bring up the subject. I learned not to talk about it openly very early.
And if it hadn't been for Boggy Creek I might never have brought up the subject and got my pawpaw to talk about them.
Anyway, I thought I'd share the photos and some of the story. It was good to get back there and find the old place.
and it's neat you got to go back and see the place you went to as a child. KNOW the memories came flooding back. If we go back down in November, lets do it before gun season opens up
Before we left Edith and I agreed to go back camping, probably in November before it gets very cold. She loved the place. I'll let people know when we go and maybe we can have a few come too. I'm headed up to PA for Eric Altman's conference this weekend. After that we will plan something. We'd love it if some others can join us camping.
lived in McCool, Columbus and Jackson, Mississippi. She and I traveled to visit all of the relatives, including her daughter my aunt, during the summers. I got on a train the first week in June and didn't come home until the end of August (school didn't start until Tuesday after Labor Day). I remember bathing in a washtub, going to the outhouse at night with my granny and a flashlight and stoking the wood-burning stove in my Great-Aunt Ivy's kitchen each morning. During the early 1950s the summer weather was a great deal cooler than it is now and that stove felt great once I got it going. They boiled their coffee with egg shells. I picked fresh corn, dug up 'new' potatoes and brought in the eggs from the hen house. Great Aunt Ivy was one of the best cooks I ever knew. I LOVED every day I stayed in their old house with it's tin roof (rain on that roof was a show in itself). My Great Uncle Elmer created a 'canopy' over my iron bedstead to keep the dead spiders out of my bed. The Dirt Daubers and the spiders fought nightly battles in the open rafters and I got the pleasure of sleeping with several spider carcases until Great Uncle performed magic with an old sheet. THOSE WERE THE DAYS.
Raided a watermelon patch late one night and got the scare of a lifetime...but that's a story for another day.
That old barn looks like an invite for a sleepy monster. Keep us posted of your return trip there. Would love to hear your stories if you decide to post them.
Had a great time meeting everyone. Intersting evening of research. Despite being exhausted I had a good time. Haven't reviewed the thermal yet. Keep your fingers crossed.
Hey man, I tried emailing you when I got home. But both email sites I used could not send to the email address that you gave me on the card. Is there any other way to get ahold of you,my friend?
A special thanks to Don and Vanessa for all the hard work and good food, Bear for the Chilli Friday night and Teresa for the Dutch Oven Deep Dish Peach Cobbler. It was great seeing many old friends again and meeting a few new ones.
These were just a few I shot and had to reduce the quality to Post, as usual as soon as I get time I'll email all I shot to those I have email address(s) for.
Soon as nessa gets to work, she'll get hers downloaded and we'll post em up
Unfortunately, got in a hurry this morning & left the camera sitting on the kitchen counter. I'll make sure I have it tommorrow though so Don can post our pics!
That's called CRS.......... n/tby Grumpy
Thanks to Don, his wife, and all else who made this weekend special. Enjoyed meeting all you guys and gals I have only met on the Board. Wish all could have come. So many personalities and all were enjoyable actually. Grumpy, thanks for allowing me to view some excellent pics. Nice outing too with very interesting woodland visitors who like to throw rocks and break branches!
we gonna send you to advanced map reading. BWAAAA HAHAHAHAHA
I had fun this weekend at the MS get together. And I'm glad to meet some you guys,and I hope to meet the rest of you guys at the next get together. Saturday night was wild,with the research we all went out and did. That was the first time I saw anyone get a monster to respond back at their calls. I'm going to try and do that at my little area I go out too.
It was nice seeing all of y'all at the lake this weekend. There were people from GA, OK, LA, TN & MS --hopefully I did not miss anyone.
Thanks Don Don & Nessa for the great pull pork. Someone else made the bestest peach cobbler ever!!!!
Hope to do this again soon.
I for one, had a great time. It was cool meeting everyone and I look forward to more get togethers. I;m glad I found out there are other guys around where I live that are into this, I didnt know there were so many!
it won't be as long as it was this last time before we see you and that crazy man of yours again, PROMISE.
Carson, dang sure won;t be the last time I see ya. We need to get our bunch together soon and get back down there. Gun season opens in about another month and that'll shut down my going out there so we need to plan something for a couple or 3 weeks. Maybe this time ole Tim won't be so worn out.
like to go too for sure...and I'll bring a better map this time!
screw that man, Enough camp and the hunters wont see ya!...haha I take my chances shoot me an e-mail Crsnhppr@aol.com
I got some locations near me that arent hunter logged too so we can go there anytime hit me w/ your email and Ill send you a google satellite photo
Had 3 more that had things come up so they couldn't make it to. Most people don;t think of Mississipi as a Creature hot spot but it dang sure is. I have reports from one end of the State to the other. 4 or 5 different areas have more than anywhere else and I've hit 4 of then SO FAR. We be back out again in about 3 weeks, weather permitting.
Had a blast! DonDon is still the Pull Pork King!
Heard some bionic bird sounds and had a rock thrown at us. It was great meeting folks and seeing some old faces.
Great turn out too!
I only took a few...
We had a fun time! Hope to do it again soon!
Edith loved the lake, we may go back and camp in November.

As usual, American scientists looking for bigfoot are heading to the wrong place....Siberia!! Hell if they just allocated the needed funds to find the creature in the States the whole mystery could be solved!! I guess they just need a government funded trip to one of the largest and mostly uninhabited regions of the world. Enjoy it you egg headed stooges!!
I saw no mention of American "scientists"...either by name or institution...only Coleman. And he wanted them to pay his travel expenses to come to their conference.
This is just a PR piece for Coleman to keep his name and "museum" in the media....no doubt to legitimize his request for funds from potential private donors.
Just more talk...no substance.
Daughter called and she goes into the hospital at 6 AM in the morning for them to induce labor!!!!!! Can't wait to start spoiling a grand daughter
There's nothing like being a grand-parent. You spoil 'em and get to send them home.
Congrats bro!by SAsquatcher
That's right,,spoil her rotten and send her back home to momma and daddy!
We have one 7 years old and another on the way-great , especially at the end of the day when they are returned! Nah, we love em TOO much!
Wishing everybody a quick and uneventful recovery. If you ever get into a "disagreement" with your grandchilds momma you can do what my momma used to do to get "even" with my sister. Right before she dropped her grandaughter off with my sister she would give her 4 oz. of coke and a piece of hard candy. This would inevitably lead to an angry phone call from my sister accusing my mom of getting her all "wound up" before dropping her off. My mom would ofcourse deny everything and add that she was a perfect angel with her the whole day! LOL!
Congrats. To you and the family.
Just received a phone call...by Monster Hunter
One of my contacts called saying she just saw a Monster standing in about the same place she saw one several weeks back...while talking with her she walked back out and said this Monster was still bent over...she could see mass and the legs were spread apart but she couldn't see its face...the Monster, according to what she could tell me by items I know of reference, was standing/squatting within 60 to 70 feet of her...while still on the phone observing this Monster I had her make a scan of the area looking for dark spots...she said she couldn't see anything dark...
This is not the same Monster she saw several weeks back...the one she saw previously to this one had a grey beard...though she couldn't see the face, any details, she said she knew it was a different Monster...
Here's the deal...both she and her neighbor are hearing unusual noises around their homes...her neighbor hears a metal pounding, briefly, and is finding tracks in the sand...estimated at 17 and 19 inches...her neighbors storm door has damage...screen is torn and screws pulled out by force...
I plan on going down Thursday if possible or maybe Friday on my way to MS to rearrange a few cameras and hang a game camera..oh and BTW...while making her scan she said she could see a deer stand, metal type, next to the pine thicket...I know for fact there were not any deer stands there nor are there that many deer to hunt...
Another important item...the Monster she has seen and saw today are in this same area where I don't have any camera coverage...about a thirty ft. span plus a low limb hanging tree blocking the area...
you said you may have a handheld video camera for her to use. Too bad she wasn't using a cell phone with a camera on it at the the time she was speaking to you and could have captured a picture of the monster. Are you taking fried chicken along with you for the monsters...with the change in the weather they may be feeling hungry?
I may take some of the Southern Classic with me...by Monster Hunter
While talking to the lady earlier she did mention about the last chicken box that we couldn't find...Josh and I gave the place a pretty good walk through without finding anything but a few balls...one ball came from the pool with me thinking the wind...no idea about the other...
She and I did talk about placing the chicken on the trailer...day time photos, game camera, chicken is there...two hours later, day time photos, and the chicken is gone...and no video of anything getting the chicken...that's where I plan on putting up a game camera once again if I take chicken with me...better game camera with a one second sleep mode before activating...
I will also let her use my other digital camera that I haven't used...may not be smart enough to use it myself let alone show her how...I wish she would use one of my motion cameras...I have a Hi-8 and a digital but there are just to many buttons to push to get everything activated and adjusted for distance...
jim i do believe they are bad having lots of prints in the sand lots of hollering late at night monday i was sitting on my front porch i heard what sounded like a large limb break and the god awfuly smell, it came from toward the shed , i know it was one of them , so i went in the house, tell me something why are there so many here? what is attracking them to this place? let me know your threoy on that get back with me on it when u can
I was hoping your cameras caught something this time. Please keep us posted...inquiring minds need to know!
Btw...My husband George had a heart attack on Wednesday and I had to call the ambulance to get him to the hospital just 2 blocks down the street from where we live. Man...talk about scary! I could of lost my best friend. Well, he got to come home this evening...he put up a big fuss...his bed was too uncomfortable and the place was too noisy for a decent night's sleep.( For anyone who doesn't know George he is a quadriplegic and he hasn't been in a hospital overnight since he broke his neck 35 years ago.) He is so happy to be home and so am I! He contributes his heart attack to getting very upset at our son the night before...he THINKS that may have triggered it the next morning...so all you guys if your in your 50's don't get really upset by life's little aggravations...like aggravating teenagers. It's just not worth it...in fact it may kill you.
Thanks for letting us know and I hope George feels better soon. My dad had heart trouble when he was around 66, got a bypass operation and lived another 20+ years. They've made EVEN more advancements in the treatment of heart disease his my dad's bypass operation. Tell him to take care...

aka RubyRed and Silver Fox
George is happy to be back home from his hospital experience. He hates hospitals! Beds are too uncomfortable and the place too noisy for a decent night's sleep.The last time he was in a hospital it was 35 years ago when he broke his neck.
He's back to feeling his grumpy old self again.
Thanks for the report. M.C.. Heard earlier today from my Cousin. He saw 2. While Bow-Hunting about 5pm.. He was in a ground blind, over-looking the head waters of the Colorado-River in Borden County.
He was on a slope about 300yards away. One was "Really Big, and the other one almost asa large." Moving fast down the river. Or what is left of it.
They see them 1 or 2 times this time of years up there.
On the camp out will anyone have a laptop?
Should be several Lap tops...by Monster Hunter
we had to wipe it blank and needs an operating system
I should have mine
Will there be Wi-Fi there?
...the expert a question this weekend will have to save 'em for next year. I'm the Bigfoot Expert, not the Dodge truck transmission expert. too bad, too. I've missed the last few weve had. maybe next year. I'm gonna go snivel now.
I guess since you can't make it...by Monster Hunter
Folks can post their questions here on the forum Dew...

You could have hooked a ride with Jim???
was looking forward to ya being there
Hey Dew.by SAsquatcher
email me your phone number plz.
They ha a good article about entitled The Island Of Doctor Ivanov. It was about the russian scientist Dr. Ilya Ivanovich, that tried to crossbreed humans and great Apes (Humanzee). Pretty neat. YEH, I read the articles AND the funnies. It went on to say that they're pretty sure they did succeed but killed the fetus. They never did say anything for sure but hinted real hard at it.
Playboy has articles???LOL
The real SHOCKER is,,,by SAsquatcher

Just kidding bro!
A genuine Yeti-mania...by Monster Hunter
I've been remiss in not thanking all of the great "brothers" and "sisters" on this MB who expressed their condolences to Gary for the passing of his dad. We are both doing very well and agree with all of those who expressed the sentiment that his dad is at rest and in a much better place than we are currently. So true. I'll never forget what Brother Campbell, the minister of Westbury Baptist Church said at my own father's funeral in 2000: "your brother, father and friend, E.M. Fendely, had a better day today than any of you and a better day yesterday, too. Tomorrow will be even better for him, so don't grieve too deeply. He'll be waiting near one of Heaven's gates for you and may even be counting off the days. You will see your dad again, Sharon. Let not your heart be troubled." So good that I wrote it down and committed it to memory.
But the kind wishes and prayers of good friends ARE always appreciated.
We love all of you,
Sharon and Gary Warren (aka RubyRed and Silver Fox)
With recent advances and revalations in DNA (assuming they are true) to be revealed as well as the research and work from the NABS guys. I am not too sure killing one of these things is ethical honestly. If we look @ the fossil record, there were numerous sub species of great apes, and homonids (the precursors of modern day man). It wouldnt be out of the question evolutionarily speaker for a homind similar to man to have evolved right beside him and remain hidden, naturally we (modern day man) have dominated our world and this "cousin" would have to remain hidden, adapt and learn to blend in w/ his surroundings.
This of course is hypothetical at this point in time regarding the subject, just as is the theory it is an animal. However Indians regarded the being as belonging to a "tribe", and they didnt go around saying that bears lived in tribes or deer lived in tribes, they recognized tribes as a culure and society just like how they said white man was a tribe, so we have to remember the origins and wording the native americans used and remember that just because they lived in the wild they weren't completely inept at catagorizing intelligence.
Just food for thought, I'm on the fence about this, but If I had one in my crosshairs I would certainly think twice about pulling the trigger and the possible implications of turning in a body that produced human DNA to a degree...
The Animal we got a shot at back in 2003.by SAsquatcher
We got blood grouping results back and they were in the (Primate group A) range which is in the Chimp and Orang family.
The animal got away but left blood behind.
was is Autosomal DNA, X Chromosome DNA, Y Chromosome DNA, or Mitochondrial DNA also what were the specifics on the mutation and halotype. As you know Different testing yields differed results.
Monster Hunter can probably tell you a bit more about that than me but I just know that I was there when the animal was shot and I saw the blood and I heard the results when Jim got them back.
btw, if i were going hunting for Sas, i'd personally use a .375 H&H...no chance at escape
has probably gotten more men killed in the dark continent than any other Big Bore Cartridge.
large animals don't cotton to being shot at by anything. they certainly dont "Bang, Flop".
that you have to worry about. It's the other1 to 10 that are in the area that'll get ya. LOL I'd be willing to bet that nights story gets told this coming weekend.
your right, just like in the supposed "sierra kills" event, after the one was shot, two more were around, 1 charging the guy, personally If I could bring a gun this weekend , it'd be my SASS in .308 w/ its twenty round magazine stacked w/ my Barnes TSX's...that not being the case you better believe ive gotta bowie knife the size of ole' Jim's.
You'd better bring a bigger gun than that!by SAsquatcher
300 mag or .4570 to start.
I think a 12 gauge chambered for a minimum of 3 inch magnums might do the trick if they are in close.
I like to load mine, Buckshot, slug buckshot, slug,,that way I get pretty good coverage.
Just be sure to save the last round for yourself.....in case your position is overrun
Although older .308 loads are comparably low-power, modern technology has done wonders for the .308 Winchester. There has always been a great deal of interest in getting as much from the .308 as possible because the design of the cartridge itself is very efficient, and lends to consistent and superior accuracy. These days, most ammo manufacturers offer premium .308 ammo that meets or exceeds muzzle velocities of 30-06 ammo. Loads that deliver over a ton and a half of knockdown power at the muzzle are readily available for the .308. For example, Federal's Premium High Energy load for the 165 grain bullet in the .308 has a MV of 2,870 fps and a ME of 3,020 ft lbs. This is enough to take a grizzly, and has done so many times.
For me though, crawling through tight brush in dim light calls for a 12 gauge and a large caliber sidearm.
Black magic load in a 3 inch mag. Isn't it 600 grains of lead? LOL Suckers are huge
Me too Don.by SAsquatcher
And my 30.06
If that combo can't knock em down,I'm in the wrong field.
Hell I believe that you could knock em down with a 30-30 if you place your shot just right but I want to knock them off their feet as well.
was/is a no go.
it wasn't up for the task. neither was the shooter.
a .308 was never designed for 1000lb animals.
hire me for the job, not to toot my horn, but I've taken advanced marksman classes as well as private ballistic applications by a former USMC sniper. I can hit the nuts off a squirrel @ 800 yards, a head shot on a head thats 16"x10" @ under 300 yards wouldn't be a problem at all, then you just use a bullet thats got enough bite, like those Barnes TSX's I load. Truts me you can kill anything you want w/ a .308 other than some of the larger African animals , as long as shot placement is surgical.
thats what my rifle is, like I said 1 surgically placed .308 round can stop anything you want,..but just in case 19 more will definitly do the job.
for the record, sniper boi is the one who took the shot at about 10 yards from a 91 series.
not a lot of sniping done at first down distance. don't brag too much about the sniper set up. several of the posters here have BTDT.
Like I have always said,,,by SAsquatcher
Pretty is as pretty does!
Drop a monster with it, then we'll talk.
That guy back in 03 should have unloaded on that sucker, maybe with multiple shots he would have got the job done,,oh well,,shoulda, coulda, woulda, I guess.
The shooter.by SAsquatcher
back in 2003 had a .308,,too light and not enough shots!
you see one, look around you.
Brush hunting...by Monster Hunter
A shotgun hands down...rifles in an open area are fine but in areas that I'm in...nothing but a shotgun...Knowing how quick the Monsters are...before you have time to place a shot with a rifle in this brush the Monster is in the next county or breaking your neck...the most effective round for a shotgun up close with a Monster coming to you is bird shot...wonder why?...
Which brings me to another item that IMO is a waste of money...NV of any kind...Monsters don't usually walk the open areas remaining in the thick brushy areas or in timber with a heavy canopy...Thermal is the only way to fly IMHO...buying and owning equipment is great and it's IMO like buying binoculars to become a bird watcher hoping you see something...you want to see a Monster go into an area of activity and keep going during the day time...you'll see one or some...you want to hunt for harvest at night...thermal weapon site...
Gen 3's aren't bad as long as you're in an open pasture or a open hardwood bottom and the leaf canopy is gone. Then you'll have to have a decent ammount of Ambiant light. Doesn't take a full moon to use them without the IR on but it does take NO leaf cover and alot of star light to see past 100 feet. 100 feet sounds like alot but if they're behind bushes or some obstruction, you won't see them with even gen 3's. It's actually frustrating as all get out to hear something walking bipedally at night with them on and you can't see them at say 100 feet.
a shameless salesman when I'm playing on stage now that I've released my new CD so what the heck, I may as well tell you folks too.
14 original songs, recorded with a producer and some great bluegrass musicians. Hopefully the Mod will give you my email address if you are interested in one. It's getting some good reviews and I'm kinda proud of it. Thanks Mod for this commercial break!

Just to clarify a point.by SAsquatcher
We (The GCBRO) are proudly working to prove the existance of these creatures by whatever means possible, which means bringing one in either tranquilized, caged or dead.
It is our opinion that no species has ever been proven without providing a specimen!
We are a pro-kill group which means that we endorse the idea that nothing will ever be proven without providing a body first, OR if you want to try and capture one live, be our guest but these critters are very elusive.
The point is that video and hair and scat and even blood samples prove NOTHING without a body to link it all to.
After a body is provided,THEN and only then will we be able to adequately study their habits and habitat range and so on, otherwise it will just go on like it has with hoaxers and goofballs making all kinds of claims while real researchers take the heat from their "Friends and even family and co-workers".
and sad to say it...
Well...guess I'll...by Monster Hunter
take my video system down and shxx can my game cameras...those who do understand the difficulty...those who don't have no idea...
What I believe to be an ideal situation...good quality pictures and video...then a corpse...no denying a group of these Monsters thrive in the rural and wilderness areas of our country...
I didn't mean it like that Jim.by SAsquatcher
Good video is good evidence, please don't get me wrong, I just meant that the ULTIMATE goal is gonna be a body.
I meant that to the "Scientific Community" video and hair and scat and even blood samples prove NOTHING without a body to link it all to.
Video and hair and blood and so on ARE all evidence for sure don't get me wrong but when a body is produced then all the pieces of the puzzle will fit together.
I guess what I am trying to say is all those things are good and I don't want to take away from any of that one bit, BUT, the body will be the final proof as far as the world and the skeptics and the scientific community are concerned.
population would never get to see the body so the folks who think everything is a damn conspiracy wouldn't believe it. Especially if the govt. tried to shut down a couple million acres of forest as an excuse for bf habitat. You'd probably need a bunch of bodies. I understand what you're saying though and you are probably right.
I know a lady who still doesn't believe that we have landed on the moon!
My point is that no matter what you do there will still be some skeptics.
Google the "Flat earth society" there are still folks that believe the world is flat and there is nothing that you can do to convince them otherwise either!
in Cardiff, Wales back in 1971 when on a tour through the British Isles. Loved talking to her. Then not an hour later, met another Welsh lady in the same coffee shop in the same town that blamed the wet summer weather on "them Americans who stirred up the dust on the moon." It was priceless to hear her talk; of course, WE didn't tell her we were from the U.S.A.
that I could care less about the scientific community...personally I don't need a corpse to poke around on...I have seen them with my eyes on more then several occasions so I definitely know they exist...as far as knowing close to exactly what they are would possibly come from a corpse but lets' remember the differences in digits both hands and feet along with foot structure...a continuous study would be damn near impossible...we can't study something we can't find...kind of like passing a law for protection...why?...
Hunters/researchers/field investigators claim to see "something" unusual...maybe a Monster or possibly another animal...add some imagination and you now have a Monster...I take every report I read or receive with a grain of salt unless I personally know the reporting parties and the areas the reports come from...misidentification, hoaxes with some people completely full of crap reporting seeing Monsters...every broken limb, rock stacks, strange sound or noise, scuff marks, dark object in their mind is a Monster without knowing what they are doing along with incompetent investigation...
I agree with you in part BUT.by SAsquatcher
I know that you personally have had experiences as have I and Bobby and Don and Michael and others, I'm just talking about what this Organization and website is all about and that is discovery.
It's not about proving to ourselves but to the world that these things do in fact exist, that is the cornerstone of the GCBRO.
You may not need a body to poke at but if we are ever gonna prove our case scientifically then we are going to have to put our money where our mouth is!
Personally, I get tired of people telling me that we will never provide a body because there "Ain't no such thing as Bigfoot",Sure I know that there is but the burden of proof is on me since I am the one making the claims.
It seems like the enthusiasm to prove our case has diminished for some reason which is sad.
And please don't get me wrong!by SAsquatcher
I know that you spend hours and hours and a small fortune in gas and money and time going to these areas and setting up cameras and talking to folks and all, and it is very greatly appreciated!
I'm just saying that is getting to be time to do a hunt as well.
I'm game Rick...by Monster Hunter
Find us a place to hunt...easier said then done right...
Sort of.by SAsquatcher
I think we have some untapped resources on the East Texas side near you that may hold some promise but I would be willing to travel a little bit as well.
I am certainly not,,,by SAsquatcher
Trying to put the ball in your court Jim but there are other members as well that could contribute.
I agree 100% it should not be all on you, hopefully some others will step up to bat as well.
Once again Rick...by Monster Hunter
we are not obligated to prove anything to anyone...
say the same thing about video. A GOOD, CLEAR video of bf acting like bf would go a long way in regards to proof. And I don't mean video like Patty who's just walking away like any dork in a suit would do.
Yeah I guess,,,by SAsquatcher
I have to be real careful how I phrase things.
I am very proud of Jim and the work he is doing and had done trying to get video of these animals and when a body is produced, it will validate all of the pieces of the puzzle.
I merely was saying that all the evidence is the icing on the cake but a body is the cake itself.
and I think everyone understood and agreed with what you were saying. It just brought up other interesting points. It was a good post I thought.
I agree. I don't really care who believes and who doesn't. I'm done with trying to convince ANYONE and have been for quite some time. My fiance thinks I'm a little off and that is just fine with me. I know what I know.
Video & film will not prove the existence of BF but it is an excellent tool for the researcher. Even if you never film a BF you can document what you were doing and how you did it. It helps establish location, environment, and patterns. But like any tool anyone can own one. Just as anyone can own a skil saw, but that doesn't mean they know how to build a house.
Use your camera as the tool it is. Document your research and if you happen to get one on film or a good photo, use it to enhance your research. It is proof for you of what you saw, how it moved and acted. Plus if you video your actions in context it can establish time, date, where, when and an assortment of information that will back up your sighting.
Photos and video can establish over time how an area changes, trails and disturbances in the area. It can put information in context as new discoveries are made.
I'm working on a Conundrums episode where I will go into this in detail. I hope to have it done soon.
above and beyond what any other group is doing is that you have moved beyond trying to prove these creatures exist. I think it is more important to find out about the behaviors of these things rather than trying to prove they exist. I was talking to J. Meldrum about these creatures and all he wanted was scat and footprints. I'm sorry guys, but physical evidence like that is what is left after these creatures are long gone. Besides, I do not personally need a hair sample, scat, or footprint casts when I already know these creatures exist.
The best way to find these animals or other bands of these animals is to know what they look like and how they act in their environment. That is why I think Monster Hunter's work is so important. He is not sticking to a single group of these creatures. He is working multiple groups. Meldrum would be better off trying to find the animal and not the foot prints but he doesn't know what they look like except for the Patty film and he doesn't know how to find them because he doesn't know anything about their behavior or intelligence.
That is where the rest of the scientific community will be also once these creatures are "discovered". They will have the body of a creature they won't know anything about.
My Bigfoot encounters are being made into a movie. George E Fernandez is my Producer and Canopy Road Pictures is making it. This is a great investment opportunity for people who believe in bigfoots.
were your encounters legit? proof? substance?
I wanna get Robert Rodriguez to do mine,,,,by SAsquatcher
I can just picture Danny Trejo and Cheech Marin playing the parts of Jim and Bobby,,Of course Antonio Banderez will play me and Quintin Tarantino will be Don Don!
I think I'll call it,,,El Chango!
Just kidding folks, if you want to do a movie,,go for it.
How much money are you looking for ?
Here's the deal on the Monster the lady saw...by Monster Hunter
It came up between two of the cameras...less then 30 feet separates the distance these two cameras cover...one camera pointed in the right direction but there is a large bushy tree that blocks out any images where apparently the Monster walked up...I've watched the time frames the lady told me several times back and forth and no Monster...I will try the next day to make sure it wasn't Monday but Tuesday...
BTW...she called me yesterday and informed me she saw the grey bearded Monster standing close or next to the now dry pond...she also told me the next door neighbors husband did find tracks but didn't see a Monster...
Apparently so Don...by Monster Hunter
Next time I go down I'll point the cameras in different angles making sure there will be no separation in video...I did this originally but changes my plan which still wouldn't have covered the area the Monster came...guess I'll have to add more cameras...
lend her a good camera? She keeps seeing them but can't take a photo? Are you sure she's being on the level with you? I hope you're not going through all this work/travel for nothing.
Yes she is an honest person T...by Monster Hunter
Her neighbor sent me pictures of tracks yesterday...I have pictures of Monsters there myself...found many prints and impressions...
After receiving the pictures of the tracks left in sand I called...loud metal sounding noise woke her and her husband up the night before...they are hearing screams and howls...the tracks were leading to her side door with her unsure if this attempted to get into the house and the noise heard...
What's kind of weird...watching video my cameras begin to distort flashing off and on one night...this goes on for more then several hours before it straightens out...I have no idea what causes this thinking it could be an electrical problem since their electricity has been going off and on occasion...
Still no Monsters on video...
may lie upon intersecting laye-lines, have underground water or underground limestone deposits. At anyrate, the land she lives on sounds as if is very interesting paranormally speaking...I hope I'm not coming off like I believe BF is some sort of paranormal entity. To the contrary; I believe these critters are real animals but whose to say they aren't attracted to places where the very ground beneath their over-large feet hums or pulsates with energy surges? I will now put away my crystal ball...LOL
what state is this in?
Louisiana...n/tby Monster Hunter
I was suppose to go on the North Georgia expedition the BFRO did here a few wks ago. Anyways there was a long "class A" sighting apparently and tons of "class b" sightings...Couldn't go for financial reasons. But given the BFRO's track record I gotta take their claims w/ a grain of salt, but still...
The researcher that headed this NE Georgia outing is a stand up guy, his knowledge of the subject goes without questions and i've learned alot from the guy. When I say I take what bfro says w/ a grain of salt, I mean in regards to previous reports ive read from prior attendees that were less than flattering. That said Matt ,who actually knows what he is talking about, would be more than credible in terms of his reports of sightings or goings on that were indeed squatchy during that expedition. We have talked at length about the subject and he's a stand up guy and one of the few in the field who's head isn't shove up his *** that is after it for the money. So thats that really..I still wish I had gone , sucks being poor...anyways Im off to the woods right now so wish me luck..going to check on the honey hole.
than you'll ever learn from that bunch. Every little thing that goes bump in the night isn't a bigfoot.
i'd agree with your last statement 100%, I also hate it when people take pictures and claim there a group of individuals in the picture based on ...well i dont know what like shadows and dark places and camera's that usually dont have a high resolution, or video's where they point out individuals that really can't be seen..whats the point? you know? I'f its not a clear picture or image then saying its one is really pointless and your not helping anything out.
As far as learning more this coming weekend,...I'm purely scientific, ill entertain claims , theories, and opinions but because this subject lacks real hard-core proven facts other than footprints, hair, crap images and video; as well as scientifically proven behavior, I only still take it at its most basic applicable level which in the end is usually just theory. There's only a few people out there who have a very good full scope and grasp of this animal and or homonid ; namely John Green, Peter Byrne, and Dr. John Bindernagle.
I agree with you partially.by SAsquatcher
But there are a couple of names that I would add and 1 that I would subtract.
Have been around.these creatures alot more than any you just named.. i dont just mean people who have talked to others who have had encounters. I mean people that have been up close and personal with them on several occasions.
Absolutely Don!by SAsquatcher
Seeing is believing!
There are a lot of "Authors" and self proclaimed "Experts" who have never even been close to one of these animals, I tend to believe the folks that have had first hand experiences!
I wasn't gonna name names but I think some top names should be, Bobby and Jim and Timberghosts just to name a few!
These guys have had first hand encounters on more than one occasion, they KNOW what these animals are because they have watched them and observed them doing what they do!
The top guys in this field are the ones that get out there and hit the woods and know how to look for sign of these animals without walking all over evidence or running away the first time something growls at you!
These things WILL come within close proximity and try to either distract you or scare the s*** out of you but these guys have the stainless steel cojones to hang tough!
These guys have been doing this for years and in my opinion if you listen to them with a teachable attitude, will put you on a Monster!
These are the guys I listen to!
well i sure hope I can join you guys as much as I can when you go out b/c i'm dying to have a first hand encounter and pics and sounds.
Is where i had my first no doubt sighting. Ive been skunked before. Seen something large breaking through.the bushes with me.getting a glimpse. Had things thrown at me n been screamed at but this was my first no doubt look Maybe well.get lucky cause they have been seen where were goung
I don't want DonDon sneaking up on me while I'm relaxing at the campsite......
I know you tote 2 or 3 guns and I might get shot LOL. We got everything about packed at the house. Research box cleaned out, cookers ready to go and even got the Jambalaya base made. LOL I do have to get up early and go get my field crews out friday morning but I'll be off work by 9 and on my way down by 10 that morning
Will be leaving here about 6am your time with about a 6 hour drive so we should be there around noon.... will be hauling the 24' travel trailer since they have hookups, us OLD Folk need our comfort...............
I'll be in a tent
one should always yell out, "Hello the Campsite" before hiking out of the woods suddenly. Grumpy, please say hello to your lovely wife from Ruby and Silver. We hope that everyone attending the MS event has a great time. IF we ever get ANY money to spare, we will get to come to events like this one but something always happens to prevent attendance? One year it was my dental issues and now it's no job and lots of bills. I hope one day to put my money and time where my mouth is...Silver Fox needs to "see" one of these critters and I'd like to do the same. The closest I've come to having a bona-fide BF experience is 'having feelings of being watched,' hearing tree knocking in Oklahoma after we left the campsite and seeing shadows move in a dark forest.
Have a great day! And an even better weekend!
I would love it for you two to have fun and a good time. Heck...I wish it upon myself also. Maybe some day it could happen for both of us. And I would love to meet you.
Would love to meet you and hook up with all of the wonderful folks who contribute to this MB. Now, if you want to hear some really good, scary stuff coming to a camp out is the place to come. WE will make it one day and probably NOT that far off. Things are beginning to 'pop' job wise here; keeping fingers (and toes) crossed for Silver's job search. Besides I still remember that I promised to be monster 'bait' at the BBQ...
wait! I'm gonna try and get down friday eve but may be early Sat if I can't get off work early Fri.
Been waiting for a trip like this for 2 1/2 years and I'm not about to miss this one.
but make sure you have a fishing license. Lake just reopened a couple weeks ago. It's been closed for a couple years for dam repairs and the fish haven't been fished for since it closed. Well, up until a couple weeks ago anyway. Hearing LOTS of good 2 to 4 pound bass are coming out
Yep, those men you have mentioned are main stream for sure. None of them have had a sighting as far as I know but they have interviewed lots of folks (apparently) who have. They've all done a good job of keeping the subject of bf in the foreground as much as it can be in this day and age. They are all well spoken, calm and seem not to be easily led by the hoaxers.
It's great that you're going to the GCBRO get together. I wish I could go too.
I think seeing one is only a small fraction of the puzzle, I can undertand the great desire to see one because i sure as hell do, but to be able to formulate construct for being able to see and study them on a regular and often basis is the real goal. The gentlemen I listen , like you said to my knowledge as well, havent seen one or have a lengthy account of coming into contact w/ one...and they did if for more years than the heavy hitters in the biz today that are at an arms race over video and dna..i digress, those gentlemen had very good ideas and theories and contructs on behavior, habitat, social structure, biology etc etc..the REAL goods IMO in the study...I'd only hope we can get real good footage just for their sake and their eyes to see not mine.
Carson, why do you call it that? Have you had a sighting there?
no, however there are all indicators in the natural enviornment that suggest the area could be populated by a group of indivduals,not to mention a history of sightings in the area
I sent out a email to those that said they were coming and I just want to make sure that everyone got it. PLEASE email me and let me know that you got that email. IF you don't have my cell number, please email me as well and I'll get it to you.
Hope all you good folks are doing well.

We all need some good long rain...
The one over the stump is good, but the one in the background in the woods is even more interesting.
Look hoaxed to me Nellie...by Monster Hunter
What quadruped or biped walks like that?...none that I know of...
move in sinc with the little buck's head. I'd guess something to do with the camera.
Thought I'd post a few cam pics we've been getting. Kathy has 13 different bucks coming in to her stand....
Looks like she's gonna be doing alot of shooting and you gonna be doing alot of skinning
Really nice bucks up there, Timber. Happy hunting, when it's legal.
It's archery season...
for Elk by invitation of the Governor of Wyoming years and years ago. Kinda a challenge and gives the deer or elk a chance to run away. Are you and Kathy into bow hunting? Or do you 'kick it old school'?
Bow, black powder and rifle hunt...We own some land in the mountains that is prime deer hunting.....
I hope you can bag one of those big boys Michael!
Pretty darn neat Okiebear...by Monster Hunter
My two grandsons drive me nuts about dinosaurs...figures, movies...anything dinosaurs...
I'd really love to find something like that
The one's I've seen look more like a dogs print...by Monster Hunter
But with only five toes...years back Bobby found a large three toed track that looks somewhat like those above...not as large but similar...
Apparently I went brain dead or had a CRS moment...by Monster Hunter
Three toes not five Nellie...to much watching video for me...
Nellie, I photographed this tack years ago at MC, notice it has only 3 toe pads and the back center pad, I saw no indication of claws in dirt. Most of the other tracks were stepped on by others hiking and never saw them.
LOL...looking but didn't see...by Monster Hunter
so they walked on them...LMAO...BF hunters my axx...good catch Grumpy and a good picture...
these hikers were the wives and children out hiking during a BBQ and I hope none of our hunters were with them..... LOL this was back when the dim road still had woods on both sides..... these tracks were found when the wife and I hiked through the new growth pine thicket and came out on the road about 40 yds up from where it dead ended near the old camera box.
Oh, okay Grumpy...by Monster Hunter
Thought maybe some of our gang missed them...had full intentions of jumping their axxes in MS...LOL
my crs is messin with me...I thought that they looked a little different than that...like a raptor print with claws.
I think he said recently that those famous Glen Rose human tracks that ran along-side larger tracks of a plant-eating
dinosaur were "removed" by the Texas Park Service. Alledgedly, human beings came millions of years AFTER Brachasaurous (I'm
sure I misspelled it's name) but that raises a question about how one would explain dragons???? IF your belief system (man
didn't live at the same time as Dinos and dinos died out 65 million years ago) is sound,why destroy evidence purporting that
your belief system ISN'T correct. Oh, never mind...just answered my own question.

Ok, im a gear head. I love technology and all aspects of it. I've been in the music prodcution biz for a while so I know audio and video stuff. Here is my wish list for equipment,..if i won the lottery or sold a kidney or something..
AstroScope for my camera:http://www.morovision.com/camera_adaptable/MVPA-915006G.htm
Thermal/NVD for navigation:http://www.opticsplanet.net/atn-fiits-14-thermal-system-with-iit.html
Car Mount Thermal http://www.opticsplanet.net/morovision-360-thermal-vision-acquisition-camera.html
I've got some mics and a laptop based recording rig I use hooked up to an inverter in my car. I use a high end studio condenser mic thar really caputres sound well. From all research indicated these animals/homonids can detect IR light sources so its optimal to use a NVD that doesnt need an additional IR source for quality imaging. Right now im trying to come up w/ a formula that will allow calculation of distance and originating decibles from an source in the field,..similar to how subamarine sonar can pinpoint sources of sound underwater.
I just returned from an outing in scott county in the Bienville around the Caney Creek area. I've notice alot of logging and clearing operations around there. These things try to stay away from that stuff as much as they can so its possible they have moved further east south east. Im not sure but I dont think these things like crossing the I-20. If you look on google satellite images the bienville's densest concentration of un-molested forest lies south of I-20 around the area I was in. Sporatic housing, dense forest inbetween. If you've read any of the recent developments regarding the federal gov't knowledge of these animals you'd maybe wonder why more sightings are in these areas specified. Perhap someone knows these things live here and they set aside the area for them to live, or at least for the possibility for them to live there.
From my contacts, my understanding is low population numbers and infrequent breeding cycles and long gestations there is always a somewhat slim chance of getting really close to them. One estimate for the population in north georgia was 15 to 20 indiviuals and that area is on a magnitude larger than the area in questions I am currently spending time in. I would make a rough guess that a population of 5 to 10 currently use or travel through the area in question with maybe a 25 to 40 mile radius of range they utilize. Its really hard to say, but those are my best guesses right now based on some very limited knowledge of the area.
Excellent list of equipment needed SquatchMS...by Monster Hunter
and as mentioned a winning lottery ticket is needed to acquire all you need...personally I disagree with the number of Monsters in each state...at one time here in NW Louisiana there were 15 to 20 different Monsters of all ages at MC...I have one picture that has 9 to 10 Monsters in it from a game camera...pictures of three or more in others with all taken at the same area...had a man call me two weeks ago who is northwest of the area has a group of five or more...talked to a friend at Home Depot with him telling me a few of his hunting buddies have seen strange creatures around their hunting areas...In the state you live in we get more then several reports a month from one end of the state to the other...If I got out and traveled my old Monster routes and talked to people there would be many more reports locally...
Unless we're dealing with time travelers or dimensional jumpers there are IMHO thousands of these Monsters roaming throughout our nation...
BTW...we are meeting in MS the 14th, 15th of this month...drop DonDon an email if you are interested in coming in for a visit...he has an email address listed in a previous post...hope to see you there...
and coming. We'll have several folks coming that are new to us
Good deal Don...by Monster Hunter
Be good to meet the new folks coming...
She'll be the one shivering and hiding behind your gun hand every time an owl hoots. LOL
would just love to help you out Bob. You know Barry has a mancrush on you. BWAA HAHAHA
Tell ya what. You hold one of Don's hands and a foot.
I will grab the other hand and a foot and we will let him tell us how cold that water is this time of the year.....
better hit the weights abit before you get here. LOL
is younger than us and will probably out run us when we try and grab him........ will probably have to resort to duct tape when he's sleeping.
Dude, I'll be 47 in 3 weeks and Barry's what, 25? He just looks old. hehe
LOL, I knew that would stir you up old friend, it's been to long since we have crawled around the woods......
and we gonna do some of that next weekend
i was gonna go poke around there today, not marathon , but some service roads nearby
I've always thought this was pretty cool.by SAsquatcher
Personally I think it's about money...by Monster Hunter
them taking ours for something that is not IMO conclusive...may be interesting but I'm not buying their gibberish...
Have you ever heard anything remotely like that while sitting down at MC Jim?
Never have Rick...by Monster Hunter
but have heard some strange gibberish...all sorts of wild axxed calls and had something holler Josh at me when I was down by the field working on some brush...
I guess the weirdest that was heard down here was one night...Bobby and Josh were in the bottoms...heard two bionic birds coming from the west...got to about where I put out the coon urine and retreated backwards calling...later that night...something was screaming bloody murder at them...Josh said it sounded like it was also beating on the trees while running...a smaller, assumed because of tone and sound, also screamed...
Josh radioed for us to come get them after something threw a stick hitting the tree Josh was in...he said he could hear the stick cutting the air while in flight...and that at times he could hear something milling around behind his tree...small limbs being broken as if being stepped on...that was the good old days...
Just sent them in an email to everyone that has send me an email saying they were coming. I THINK I got them to everyone but if you don't get a email from me, email me and let me know. Thanks guys and can't wait to see everyone.
Do they have RV pads at this lake, and where do you go / call to reserve one? I'll need electricity.
they sure do. Water and power as well. We're going back down this weekend and reserve the pavilion
that I will not be attending this outing. That dirty word has me stuck out on the West coast. We should have finished this project in Sept. Now it looks like it may be finished in November. I was looking forward to seeing you guys and sharing sasquatch. I even had permission from the boss. Maybe next time.
It's been a long time and was looking forward to chatting with ya again.
HI, those are my pages so far. I've been doing this for around 15 yrs and really getting serious about it the past 6yrs or so. I just got new canon eos 7d, and setup a pretty good audio rig. I research Bienville mostly as its close, and seems very promising. I've had coaching from BFRO researcher/contributor Matt Pruitt, one of the more level-headed BFRO guys imo.
I am happy to be here, I would like to go on expeditions w/ people and collaborate locally if anyone wants. I usually go out by myself late late late @ night. I drive a blue landrover discovery so if you see it parked on the side of a forest trail , that'll be me. I've read all the book , I know native MS wildlife extensivly, their calls and habitations. I also track and navigate. Anyways here I am. I am not going to start a blog because it seems theres enough out there anyways.
This is the most knowledeable group of researchers on the net. I have learned a lot from each of them.

What a lot of bickering. Jeez!
That is crazy...by Monster Hunter
I heard something about these ants on the radio the other day...if I recall correctly these ants attack and kill the red ants...
It seems that if you kill just one, it gives off a scent that warns the rest of the group......and they come to the rescue - even if it means their own demise! Solution.......build an electric grid that kills some....and as the rest appear.....whack the rest.
Just another example of "The Global Economy" destroying the balance of nature.
It seems, somehow, that North America was the "tame" ecosphere - as all other species (recently introduced) overwhelm the native fauna.
From snails to mussels to fish to snakes to kudzu....North America is being over-run (funny how that mirrors illegals from around the world - not just south of the border).
The irony of their assumptions...by Monster Hunter
none of these experts have seen one let alone killed a beast...so my question...how the hexx do they know?...they don't...more speculation from educated quacks...
I believe these are the same ants mentioned a year or two ago in articles about how they seem to be attracted to electromagnetic fields.....and end up swarming in home computers and other electronic devices, causing those items to short out. Probably a few get zapped and, as mentioned in recent articles, the rest follow.
Good against fire ants? Apparently so.
Otherwise, they - like most other non-native species - might actually be worse in the long run.
Where did they come from Mike?...by Monster Hunter

The Yeti is alive, or at least discussed in Tashtagol...by Monster Hunter
An International Scientific Conference on Hominology will be held in Tashtagol city, Kemerovo Oblast, Russian Federation from October 6 to October 9, 2011.Many local residents in Tashtagol regions believe that there are still many Yetis or Almas or Bigfoot exist and live around the regions of Tashtagol.
Once there was a case when the governor of Kemerovo region Aman Tuleev offered cash prize to whoever catches the Yeti.
The conference will be attended by the famous scientists; biologists, anthropologists, geneticists, hominologists, bioinformatics from the United States, Canada, Sweden, China, Mongolia and Russia. This time the scientists will not only gather and discuss about this issue, but they will also plan to travel to the regions where Yetis thought to be living.
R.Barsbold, a paleontologist and geologist at the Geological Institute, Mongolian Academy of Sciences, will participate at the conference representing Mongolia. He is the son of the famous Mongolian writer, scientist and academician B.Rinchen.
Did you read the notables...by Monster Hunter
attending this conference...not one damn one of them has had a sighting...but yet they can openly discuss, argue and agree on something they personally have no idea exists other then a few cast tracks, a handful of hair and what others have reported...this conference IMHO is a waste of time...
hey jim sorry we missed u yesterday just wondering what to do with the bf foot print, and have been hearing voices out there cant make out what they are saying but can hear them on my mic at night, maybe u could have a camp out down here , call when u can
Hey Shirley...by Monster Hunter
I haven't had the time to watch or listen to any of the video at this time...there is a good possibility the voices could be captured since I use a mic that picks up the slightest of sounds...
I'm coming back down next week depending on work...that nasty word work seems to pop up at the darnest times...I'll give you a call when I can head that way...
BTW...cooler weather makes camping more enjoyable especially after all the biting critters disappear...
at your place, Ms. Shirley, if MH OKs it.
He hasn't been able to get the results he wants yet and a bunch of people running around certainly wouldn't help at all... It's still a very active research area...If you understand these Monsters, then you know things MUST BE KEPT BUSINESS AS USUAL....
Too many people running around and the Monsters will just leave...
Take Monster central for example with everything going on down there... Even before all the logging and drilling if you noticed, Jim always had his "campouts" and "hunts" scheduled months apart... There was a reason for that...
It's true you can't really run the things completely off, but you can make them so spooky of people they may as well moved out of state where accomplishing anything with them is concerned...
And I certainly wouldn't have asked had I realized it would do so. MH's blessing WAS asked for and I'm sure he wouldn't give it if that is the case. Thank you for answering for him. Beg pardon.
Timber is right...by Monster Hunter
My two sons and Timber are the only persons I've taken down other then the initial report when Steve and I went down...I have quite a bit of time and expense involved knowing I have to stay persistent if I plan on "maybe" getting the video I want...
One reason I don't do any scouting around when I go down...if Monsters are coming around the home then IMO the less folks walking around the more likely I can get some video...as a matter of fact the sightings slowed after we started snooping around looking for sign...
And like I said I would never want to ruin all your hard work and certainly wouldn't have asked if I knew it would cause a problem with the investigation. A simple "No it would upset the monsters and threaten the success of the investigation" or something like that would have sufficed without the implication I was intenionally trying to be an *** or ruin your efforts.
I don't think that anybody,,,,by SAsquatcher
Was trying to do that Cindy.
I just think they were telling you why it wasn't a good idea.
I myself would rather,,,by SAsquatcher
Be given an explanation why it would be a "No go" than just to be told "NO" just cut and dry without an explanation as to why!
That's just me though, I think it was very gracious of Jim and Michael to offer a reason and an explanation in simple terms.
The bottom line is that it is the site of an ongoing investigation and they don't even want me down there walking around disturbing the area at the present time.
We have learned a lot from our mistakes at MC and don't want to keep on repeating the same mistakes over and over, that is why when it is an ongoing thing like this is, we try to keep the area as sterile as possible.
Not trying to hurt anybodies feelings but just trying to focus on getting positive results.
BTW, this is the same reason that we are not having the BBQ at MC, after all the drilling that has gone on there Jim is wanting to let the place settle back down and try to get the Monsters to relax and start coming back in there and from what I have been hearing it has been working but it is still not what it once was so it is gonna take a little more time.
Just explaining the situation so those who do ask understand...
... back before I had my strokes, I could go anywhere in MC my little heart desired, except, any bedding areas. I could go down there anytime I wanted to, day or night as long as I called him first. Jim had made it clear, that He didn't want me gettin too close to any bedding areas. I never thought about it at the time much, I just figured he didn't want to traumatize a monster. Imagine you were a monster curled up in a thicket asleep and somebody as mean lookin as I am woke you up out of a sound sleep, It could scar a dang Monster pretty bad. Jim just thinks more of his monsters than to let that happen. LOL
And if you go back and read what I posted all I did was try to explain why it wasn't a good idea. And you are very welcome for me answering it for him...
Maps and the rest of the info First of next week. I AM going to change the menu from Crappie to Pulled pork since I may be having a grandbaby born then. Just wanna make it as easy as possible. Can't wait to see all you guys and gals. EVEN YOU RICK AAAAaHHH HAHAHAHAA

Grumpy should get there early to mid afternoon Friday and will be monitoring FRS/GMRS channel 15/0, channel 15 starting code 0.
I'm not gonna be able to swing this one.by SAsquatcher
Maybe next one, (Snivel, Snivel),,lol.
Due to circumstances beyond my control I must bow out of this one but as Grumpy has said, I'll shoot for the next one .

Sure we'll get together...no problem...
got off the phone with my daughter abit ago and they've moved the due date up to guess when, 14-16th of October LOL. Looks like I'll be making trips from camp to Meridian to see my new granddaughter
I only have 1 thing to say Don!by SAsquatcher
Haven't had the time to watch any video...by Monster Hunter
I drove down yesterday afternoon...met the contact at her home with her showing me where the Monster was...I doubt there is any video unless this Monster crossed in front of one of the cameras before coming to this spot...I had to buy a new SD card for my camera since Jake removed the camera SD card for a game camera...my camera said the card needed formatted but the camera wouldn't format the darn card...the point...I would have taken pictures of where the cameras were pointed and where the Monster was standing/squatting...it appeared, without me stepping it off, that this Monster was within 65 to 70 feet of her...she also told me she didn't see it come up...
that she could grab quick when she sees one in the yard and video it from the safety of her home. If you think a camera like that would scare them maybe she could disguise it some how maybe with a towel or a brown paper bag possibly...just throwing you an idea. There has GOT to be a way to get these critters on a camera...dang it all!
I left my Hi-8 film camera with her a few months back...by Monster Hunter
But she didn't know how to use it...she inadvertently had it turned on to NV which during daylight hours is useless...white screen...when I go back I'll take another video camera I have that is maybe easier for her to operate...my digital still/video camera is difficult to operate since it's so darn old but I do have a smaller still digital and video camera I can leave her...I can't believe I didn't think of that Nellie since both cameras are in my jeep...I'll do better next time I go down...probably the end of next week if work doesn't get in my way...
Besides...I have quite a bit of video to go over now and I'm dreading sitting there watching the trees and weeds move back and forth in the wind...hopefully I'll have a Monster captured on video...
BTW...the old stray hound she had hanging around the house has disappeared...she said she put out some rat poison so maybe that did him in...
This is the trail into this area. We didn't go 100 feet when we heard the "weak owl"(thanks grumpy ) warning call. Something that should be noted is on the deer trails there were track everywhere. On this trail absolutely no deer (or any other) track:
This is a picture at the bottom of this trail in the first clearing:
Picture two - far left - beneath the bent tree.
Anything to that dark blob there? Or was it noted before/after the pic was taken and ID'd?
I blew up the picture so it could be seen a little better. It doesn't blow up so well on photobucket. I believe it is one of the things running around this place but it is very hard to ID at the distance which I estimate to be about 75 yards.
In the series of photos I took on this day, which was in June and documented in pictures, These things started off pretty far away from us. After about 40 or so minutes later we took a picture and there were 3-4 in the picture which indicated they were within 100 feet of us. Finally the broken branch picture indicated they were within 30 feet of us. I never saw them at all except for the shadow by the broken branch which I did not recognize as a creature.
Just before we got to the broken branch we were walking parallel to the creek about 20 feet above it on an embankment and my son heard growls coming from the treeline. This was about 40 or so steps from the broken branch picture I have already posted.
