Thanks Nellie...by Monster Hunter
Home tonight so maybe I can remember to watch...
the gal that was knowledgeable about orangutans was shown speaking about the Myakka Skunkape picture that everyone wants to say is faked...and she thought it was faked too but the way I see it is that the picture looks like a real flesh and blood animal. She on the other hand is used to dealing with orangutans that are the real deal...the creature in the picture looks similar to one but one that grew a bit differently...so the creature is out of her standards for a normal orangutan and she can only say it's not real because it's out of the normal for her therefore it's not real. Just my thoughts on the matter if you know what I'm trying to say.
I have seen many reports dealing with sightings of a tall orangutan-looking creature with reddish hair in several of our southern states so who's to say that we don't have one too?
They had Dan Jackson skunkape account in the show too...I still think he could have hid somewhere else while waiting for old Stinky to show at the dumpster to drink his spiked juice that he left him. And it showed him firing at him with a handgun...he had already seen one of the critters when he was younger so he should have known if he had to use the gun on him in case of self defense it wouldn't take him down but just make him very angry instead. It's too bad he didn't do his stake-out from a safe distance and let Mr. Stinky drink the spiked juice...he may have made history by bringing in a live specimen. LOL.
But I couldn't help noticing that when it comes to the southern Bigfoot... old Dr.Meldrum wasn't in this show.
and to think Jim said, "That Boy there will never amount to nothin'" HA
Buddy of Mine left going to Dallas one Day. He was gone nearly all Day.
When he got back later that same day, We asked him why he was back so soon, and he said, "We was Driving down the Road and we saw a sign that said "Dallas Left"
so we turned around and came home.
Your thoughts? I wonder why the video stops without videoing the alleged creature leaving the area....
I really don't know what to think of this. It looks really real. But in Russia, they call them Amasti. It's a good video though in my own opinion. But then again, it would be very easy to fake this , too. I read a few days ago that the Russians did create an institute to study these sightings.
It's a shame that we can not get better pictures. But then again, I've been trying to get good pictures of deer, whith a camera and not with a game cam. And I can tell you all first hand that's it's much easier to kill a deer than get a good shot with a camera. I am one that does not kill ANYTHING that does not pose a threat or I dont eat, but I do realize that we may need to get a body.
Looked real IMO...by Monster Hunter
Movement, gait, length of stride, shape of head...looked like a Monster...could this be a hoax?...possibly...but if it is it's a good one...
-shape of body
-length of arms
-definition/curvature at calves (not boxy suit)
"the peek" from behind trees.
-Quality of video (the closer the BF encounters, the fuzzier/more pixilated the subject becomes - go figure!).
-why hide from humans, peeking around trees and seeing the humans, and then make a mad dash in the clear sight of humans? Why not just wait humans out, or retreat (180) from humans and then go where you want to go? Seems like an obvious ploy to get something on a (conveniently) low-res camera.
-big arm swing (sorry, when I see that all I can think of is all the hoaxers - or parody/humor vids - imitating Patty)
-sudden cutoff of video which seems to happen in most vids which show promise (as if someone is posting the best parts before the vid began to look fake).
I agree. If it's a hoax, it's the best I've seen (see pluses list).
I won't lean towards real, however, because some of the minuses make it seem less than 100% plausible.
Side note: As more and more people learn about BF history/anatomy/behavior/etc., it's easier for dedicated "artists" to fake a filmed encounter. It's a downside of modern technology and info-sharing.
Short of a body, any video is going to HAVE to be up-close and clear (though not necessarily very long), with LOTS of detail which can clearly debunk any charge of a hoax.
But you already know that

Okay...by Monster Hunter
Why?...we need your input...
Over the years I've just learned to trust my first impressions and instincts and this video didn't spark either, kinda like when you interview someone or they show you something "Guaranteed" monster made and your experience says Man Made........ and especially today with digital video and photographs.... I've taken photographs from monster central that I know are clear and free of critters and if enlarged enough you can make out monster faces and bodies everywhere so now I just trust my gut feeling, unless it's from someone I know and trust. I've tried and can't duplicate these completely out of focus and blurry videos which IMO indicates suspicion, I'm not saying all of these fall under this category but without other documented evidence; tracks, continued presence within area, more than one isolated sighting, or when presented by someone we/I know and trust I'd rather spend my time viewing/discussing more likely possibilities.
The hoaxes have made us all a bit gun shy but from what I see on this video looks like the real deal IMO...
There has to be some real video out there.
And I know that not everyone is a hoaxer, sure there are some hoaxers but sometimes it seems like we throw out the baby with the bath water.
Warm Fuzzy Feeling,by Grumpy
this is what happens when that loud stick break is followed by something large bouncing off the tree your sitting at the base of or that feeling you get when something emits a deep loud growl, which never occurs during daylight hours in open terrain moving towards you, while adequately armed........ or at least not to me, it's always at night, pitch black and heavily wooded......
Can't trust them Rooskies.
And where's the part where he pets the tiny giraffe and starts laughing??
Some things I do while looking at photos...by Monster Hunter
I spend my time looking for figures and not pieces of an object...as Grumpy mentioned...you can take a picture, magnify and find all sorts of anomalies...if I can see it without magnification then when magnified it will usually tell you what you are seeing...it does help to know an area but comparison pictures are valuable when attempting to verify an object...
To be honest I think most are picture blind...everyone can see the elephant but many over look significant details in pictures...after taking pictures or game cam photos I go back and look at each one several times looking for items over looked previously..if I do find something I go back to the area and take pictures for comparison...debris, trees and stumps do not move so they're there when you go back...
As far as the video...if you are not interested in this Monster and are surprised with a sighting I doubt seriously that person(s) would go look for tracks...if you have one on video the track line is unimportant at that moment...may go back the next day and look but the average joe is thinking getting the hexx out of the area...
We more then likely will never know if the video is a hoax or the real deal...to many hoaxes have made most of us skeptical of any videos and pictures not taken by someone you know and trust...
I've always felt the Monsters watched you...by Monster Hunter
When in an area of activity I always thought the Monsters kept a close eye on the researchers/investigators when in their area...the below photos were taken the same day but several minutes a apart since I took these for reference...Of course I didn't see anything at the time and it may not be a Monster...but it is something standing next to the pine watching us...the second picture I stepped to my right a few steps...those that know about this project know what I'm doing and understand why...
Do do get a bad feeling? Like you aren't supposed to be where you are? I've had that before. It's a feeling of dread that I can't explain. I had that in Big South Fork many years back before I even thought of bigfoot. It was overwhelming then. I've had it to a lesser extent since. But since, I'm usually armed, I simply do my business and exit the area when I feel that way.
Not at all...by Monster Hunter
Jake and I have been there many times with Jake not mentioning any weird feelings...We know they are there, pictures, but it's just another research area as far as I'm concerned...of course my senses may be a bit dull but I haven't felt or have seen or heard any sign of aggression...I do know there are a few big Monsters in this group...the last picture there is a big boy...by a comparison picture he's crowding eight and half to nine feet...it appears the largest is down on all fours...big Monster and could be the biggest I've seen...
to the lady's house that I know?Are somewhere else?
Same place...n/tby Monster Hunter
The above is a quote from "The legend of Boggy Creek" and it brings out a good point.
Most of the sightings occur near either large bodies of water or running estuaries and or tributaries such as creeks, rivers, streams, etc.
Lets take a look at this and try and understand what these places offer.
2, food, Possible food sources might include such things as fresh water clams, crayfish,fish, various insects, and we have recently discussed the possibility that they may even eat some snakes.
Of course during the warmer months when the vegetation takes off there is fruit such as blackberries, blueberries and numerous other fruit bearing trees and plants.
3, Cover, a lot of these areas grow thick with brier thickets and dense brush where an animal who can go either bipedal or quadrupedal can watch and have several avenues to use as escape routes.
Also included under food is a hunting range, they can hunt various animals that come to these water sources and use the thicker foliage to their advantage as these animals love using the stealth approach.
These are all just my theories of course and open to rebuttal or to be added to, I am no expert and do not wish to sound like I think that I am one, however, this is just common sense stuff that fits what these creatures have been seen doing.
walking IN the creek, leaves no tracks, the sound of running water masks noise, and large undercuts would provide an impromptu place to duck into in an emergency,and there have been reports around islands in Canada and Alaska that they are excellent swimmers.
1. Could be cooler in the Summer. (Temperatures)
2. Sometimes easier, if not, quieter traveling.
3. Water & Food sources, like you said. (Groceries)
4. Able to travel between food sources unseen. yeah, like there easy to see now. LOL
5. Like you said Rick, good place to just lay up and watch the crazy people. Like when I get too close and they disappear over the Hill or thru a bottom, before I even know there any where around me. LOL
Probably not any "ONE" Reason they use the Creeks and other bodies of water, But these ought to be good for a discussion anyway.
Ya'll already know, I know all the reasons they use water, Because I'm so knowkedgeable about these critters, But, I want to give the folks that don't know everything a chance to share their thoughts.
Ya'll don't be hating, I'm just havin' some fun.
Remember, I love ya'
I am so glad that you are guiding and letting us figure out some things for ourselves simultaneously,,LOL!
I agree, there is probably not any 1 reason but a whole host of benefits that keep them hanging around a certain area.
I know that Jim's monsters are stubborn as he** because we have thrown everything at them INCLUDING the kitchen sink and they are still in there!
They may be a little wiser and way more cautious but they are still leaving sign that they are still hanging around .
I've always been of that train of thought myself and have taken maps and plotted reports turned in as well as ones that are word of mouth to see how they fit into that theory. Turns out you'll have certain streams and small rivers that really have alot of activity on them. There's a set in Southeast central Mississippi thats just flat loaded. Not only the main River but moreso 3 smaller tributarys that are just flat out ate up with reports over the years
Bigfoot eating frogs?
No I don't mean frogs that eat Bigfoot,,LOL.
The bullfrog population on my dad's pond was wiped out over night once and Monster tracks was the only sign around it. Found one frog bitten in half and we have heard these animals imitate frogs in the winter with the temperature at 13 degrees...
I can't think of any animal that sticks to water systems all year round except for marine animals like beaver, otter and muskrats, etc. It's a seasonal thing with the rest. Even moose move out of aquatic areas in the fall when the aquatic plants begin to die and they move into the forested areas to browse. We hunt moose in the bush where I go, not in the marshes. Your bf would have to drink of course but I wouldn't think one could say they hang around water courses throughout the entire year. That's only my opinion though and I don't know how your seasons affect wildlife in the South?
In regards to fishing, and I had this discussion with Timberghost years ago, I still maintain fish would be too difficult for a bf animal to catch by hand. Yeah I know you folks can grab catfish under banks but not every water system has catfish. Try catching fish without a net or rod...pretty tough. Bears usually only catch fish during spawning runs, at least up here. To make it worth the energy and time required, imho, fishing would only be worthwhile for bf if fish were spawning. Then again, maybe that's why there aren't any bf in Ontario. Too tough to make a living.
Funny you mention catching fish T...by Monster Hunter
Saturday a week ago in an area of activity Jake found a small pile of fish scales along with chicken feathers behind a pond in a pine thicket...hard to scale fish and pluck a chicken without fingers...I also found where a guinea was plucked...not skinned or feathers yanked out by teeth...plucked...
Jake didn't mention finding any fishing gear and we do suspect the Monsters are using the area to sometimes bed up in...BTW...the folks that live in this area reported not seeing any snakes the last few years telling me moccasins and copper heads were always something they had to be careful of when outside...
Something else I find kind of interesting...several weeks to a month back I was walking around this pond searching for sign...not one track of any animal but I did find a small craw-fish about 40 yards from the pond...no big deal but Saturday Jake and I are several hundred yards from this same pond looking for sign when we did see a couple of Monster looking impressions...beside one of these impressions was a small craw-fish...not really unusual to find a craw-fish anywhere down here but it is unusual to find Monster tracks/impressions and a craw-fish...
BTW...We think this could be the same track/impression we have seen and photographed a number of times...
Have you ever smelled a dead snake? When I was just a kid, a neighbor killed a huge rattlesnake and brought it home to show off. The thing stank to high-heaven!
Now, is it possible that - following the "you are what you eat" theory, that stinky snakes = stinky monsters?
Ever eat spicy food or food with too much garlic and spend a day or two sweatin' garlic out your pores (or ummmm......getting out of your system via #1
I wonder if there's any cause-and-effect? Maybe a stressed monster is breakin' a sweat/causing itself to sweat/do a #1..... and stink-bombing an area with unwanted humans?
Just a random musing.....
-Mike in NC
Stench...by Monster Hunter
No idea why and how they can emit this odor but there are different levels of stink...some get your attention like a whiff while others will darn near take your breath but I know this for fact...they emit this stench and it's not body odor...
Diet could and may very well be a cause of this stagnant odor...
That the stench may be something they can emit at will.
I have heard a lot of reports where nobody smelled a thing and a monster was right on them.
In fact I know 2 brothers and one of them was a police chief so I know it is a reliable report plus I know him.
a scent gland. When that one hit me at MC, WOWWWW is all I can say. Made the hair on the back of my neck stand straight out, that's for sure. And YES, I high tailed it out of there, freaked me out
I always thought that as well Rick...But...by Monster Hunter
The more I'm out and about the more I find this is not necessarily true...creeks are within walking distance but not directly around the suspected bedding area...within miles there are lakes, creeks but this area there is only a pond but...always a but...the timber is being cut in and around possibly moving the Monsters to higher and thicker cover...
Just west of me there was a report of Monsters being in a pasture...ponds but not any creeks other then run offs...
...that just stands to reason Jim, If this animal had a steady routine, or even steady eating habits, We'd all be huntin' El Chimichanga or Chobacupra or whatever the hell it is down S. Texas killin' all them goats and stuff.
I'm the Bigfoot Expert not the Chupacabra Expert, for Pete's sake. LOL
How true Dew...by Monster Hunter
Just when you think you have something figured out the Monster throws you a curve...I've been getting a lot of curve balls over the years...
To anyone interested,
The Subject of Bigfoot will be discussed on Tuesday 03/29/11 on Coasttocoast with George Noory at 12AM-4AM central time. Just thought I would pass that info along to any night owl that may want to tune in.
That's tomorrow Randall...by Monster Hunter
To late and early for me...
Meldrum , Jack ***, and some other guy.
Yeah the "experts" were Jeff Meldrum, Daniel Perez, and the older guy with the beard from the northeast who is alleged to steal other peoples work.
George said before the segment started that it has the ingredients to be a "classic" coasttocoast show. Well to me it was not so "classic". Just some of the same old stuff and not enough callers to tell their bigfoot stories.
For Coast to Coast and ole George to have a really good Bigfoot show on but it always seems to be the same old Coleman...Rehash,rehash,rehash.YAWN.
You've seen that rusky on the TV commercial with the petite giraffe.
To Monster Hunter
You are absolutely right. They have been covering this up for decades but
you cannot dispute what is on the film you can clearing see the facial skin of one of these creatures very clearly everything shows up like I said the eyes ears nose it's like a mask. But we know that it is one of the creatures.
Why go to all the trouble to find them if you were not going to make it public and let the world know what you found. The big tree companies are in on it too. I have wondered on the show The Axemen if they have ever had any thing strange happen out there I believe they have they are in the middle of no where but I think that they cant talk about it. There is alot we dont know
but I have believed in bf since I was a little girl and my mom told me a story that when she was little living in Chatham County NC that this huge hairy man came to there door this was back in the early 40's she said she was scared to death had never seen anyone covered in hair all over their body
her mom scared him away so I truly in my heart know they are here.
I think we'll never know the truth Tina...by Monster Hunter
As long as there are folks who hold Green and Gimlin as some types of heros...why?...no idea because neither have done anything significant other then Bluff Creek...Green was a recorder of sightings...Gimlin, in his own words, furnished transportation for the horses and Patterson...Gimlin also said he didn't touch the camera...where did the pictures of Patterson come from?...
Gimlin has changed his story more times then a babies shxxx diaper but yet people still believe him...and I find that unbelievable...I have come to realize this Bluff Creek mess is unsolvable due to lack of truthfulness from the participants regardless of film evidence...
I've moved on and have other projects I'd rather spend my time on...
I spent some time working in Washington State and asked one of the stars from the Axemen show about BF.
He stated that every crew has stories of sightings, but if you talk about BF in the timber industry, you will NEVER work again. PERIOD
my whole career in the timber industry...for the govt. Never heard such a thing although this is Ontario and there is no talk of bf here. Wish there was.
A few of the better reports Ive received over the years...by Monster Hunter
Came from wood choppers and the truck drivers who delivered the wood to the mills...from sightings to suspected bedding areas...one driver walked into the woods to relieve himself and said the stench was unbearable...he didn't know what it was and didn't take the time to find out...
have had some awesome accounts in SE OK. i would imagine other people involved in the Timber Industry as well as Oil and Gas would too.
......if some retired timber people (with sightings) got together to hold a press conference and flatly state that they've seen BF and that some areas should be protected.
If they were to decline any money for interviews that would help.
Of course, they would be doing this because they would want to protect something they saw with their own eyes.
It'd be nice if current industry guys could take pics - if they're seeing BFs often enough.
Suddenly I wonder how often BF comes up in meetings with LEOs, local elected officials, D.C. officials, etc. in order to hide/eliminate the species in exchange for political $$$$$$.
Am still wondering about that thread here at GCBRO a year or three ago where a "deer" was body-bagged and removed from near a bridge. How many people know but are sworn to secrecy (or just frightened too much by their own govt) and won't say anything.
-Mike in NC
There are probably some retired guys who worked the Bluff Creek area back in the 60's?
I know there are people that have worked in timber that have had some kind of sighting or something happen while they were there. I dont believe for a minute that you can work in the woods for decades there and not have some kind of experience. I do think the big companies do have some kind of policy that if you talk about what you see you are gone.There are too many people all over the country who have had an encounter they all cant be crazy.I work in the auto industry and was talking to a sheriff yesterday he doesnt believe that they exist the people I work with think I am crazy because I am always searching for more info on them,they are out there-they are just too smart to be caught.I think they are way smarter than us humans but one day it will be proven that they and other things besides us are here.
I agree that they may not have a policy that if employees discuss Bigfoot with each other, BUT, if they start coming out to the press, that is another ball game altogether!
For those of you that like to cast tracks, I came across this on You Tube.
Seems like a decent video, enjoy.
Good video...by Monster Hunter
That team has it going on when casting tracks...I'm not anywhere close to being that prepared...but I don't cast tracks...I'm looking for the Monster that made them...
As I look back I should have done a better job of casting and collecting evidence...not that I needed any validation but the casts are interesting for comparison and make for good conversation...
To start a collection, I know from the photos that you happen upon tracks and impressions pretty regularly (That is because unlike some folks you actually get out and hit the woods regularly), so maybe you can get a little collection going.
I would personally love to see more 3 toed tracks cast just to shut up the nay sayers regarding the 3 toed animals.
In fact I hope the first animal shot is a 4 toed one, that would just upset everybodies apple cart,,LOL.
I refuse to carry anymore then I already do Rick...by Monster Hunter
I'm in the field often and packing around a bunch of stuff to cast with is just not for me...pictures do fine and at times I forget my camera...damnit...My jeep is packed with BFing crap right now...game cameras, 2 video cameras, a folding extendable ladder, tools I need in the field. a 5 gallon bucket of corn, apples and oranges, a small cooler, a 1000 ft box of RG 6 video wire, 500 ft. of 18 gauge wire to power cameras with not to mention connectors, power supplies and last but not least my Browning shotgun with ammo...just no room for casting materials...
Remember Rick...I'm usually by myself in the field and it pixxes me off to have to carry a camera let alone a pack stuffed with crap...
Jake and Josh.
Put em to work,,LOL.
from one of our Mississippi meetings hint hint J hehe
Another reason I don't carry casting materials...by Monster Hunter
So seldom do I find a good castable track...it's not worth the effort to load up a bunch of materials I would seldom if ever use...it's amazing how many pictures I can take of tracks with my camera if and when I find any...that's if I remember to carry my camera and yes I always have one in the jeep but forget to take it with me at times while out poking around...
I don't follow?
and I'm bad enough typing with 2 hands but me and one handed typing just ain't worth a flip. LOL Meant to type ONE man. I did a casting Demo at one of our meetings and he taped it. Since then, he's been swamped in and hasn't had time to do anything with it. LOVE to see him work his magic on it and post the vid
Must raggin ya a bit.
Cool, I would like to see that.
LOL...Rick...by Monster Hunter
"Must raggin ya a bit."
You two "must" be brothers...LOL
From another Motha LOL
Times must be improving for you Don...by Monster Hunter
You had fried chicken and poor me had a peanut butter sandwich...guess I need to go see if someone will hire an old man with two bad knees...
someone hired me, although I only work 3 days a week since that's all my knees can take....LOL
Been lucky the last 6 or 8 months and they're not bothering me. Bob, remember the last trip to MC when we all walked around with my bitches and moaning about my knees? I have learned to ice them down, then get in a super hot bath as soon as I take the ice packs off, keeps the imflamation down
mine are killing me lately, spend lots of time kneeling on concrete at work and am trying to get into shape for the Warrior Dash I'm going to compete in later this summer, it may kill me but I will have fun............LOL. The old Grumpy may have to let some younger monster hunters blaze through those thickets, just haven't been the same after all those radiation treatments.
I can still hit the thickets Grumpy...by Monster Hunter
Can't get through them but I still try...
That's why I rag on him,,LOL.
Don is a good guy and one of these days I am gonna get up there where he is and wet a line (Go fishin) with him.
I LOVE crappie fishin and Bass as well.
Maybe we can check on some monster hot spots as well?
and we'll go have catch a few fish and chase some boogars
Did that on my iphone.
You have a well greased keyboard,,,LOL
Just 1 question Don,,,,,,Spicy or original???,,,,LOL.
Three toes...by Monster Hunter
An unusual foot with only three toes...the three toed tracks I've seen here have a much larger big toe...
what would Meldrum say?
Ha ha according to Meldrum, you must have imagined all of your three toed evidence......
I actually like some of what Meldrum does, but he is completely wrong with his three toed track opinion.
Yes I know LW...by Monster Hunter
One day maybe Meldrum will catch on...more to these beasts then he would or could imagine...more so then most could or would imagine...
Inbreeding within a pocket group of these animals can cause a multitude of anomilies.
3, missing or extra or deformed digits
Just to name a few.
You make the science fit the facts and not the other way around.
Fact 1, there is as long of a history of 3 toed animals as 5 toed, in fact there have been quite a few 4 and 6 toed reports too!
Fact 2, many people have reported animals that had a mongoloid appearance as well.
He needs to set out to either debunk or substantiate these claims and not put out his "Opinion" as gospel!
Good advice and observation Rick...by Monster Hunter
Meldrum like many live and breath in a comfort zone...they suffer from a fear factor...Monster might get him...it takes idiots like me that get out and do the grunt work...and if I ever have indisputable evidence...he'll not be a part of it...
Hellbinder and Van-Horn, pay close attention.
If you are interesting in seeing inbreeding at its best...by Monster Hunter
Go to your local walmart..sit outside and watch the people come in and out...
Hellbinder and Van-Horn are authorities on that subject,,LOL.
Just kidding Bob,,I have a feeling I shouldn't have said that,,LOL!
But MH may have a point...I have seen some very odd looking folk in that store...very ODD indeed. LOL.
I have absolutely nothing but respect for him!
He is what I consider good people and I don't pass that honor on to many.
Not these days!!
Bad things happen if your family tree doesn't fork!
Thought you might enjoy this original song and video about the Yeti.
Thanks Drew...by Monster Hunter
I'm sure all who listened enjoyed...
I hve been going back thru message board and came across the link that MK put
up you can see that it was skinned from head to toe and I can make out a face eyes, nose, ears. Those SOBS need to be skinned alive and let them see how they like it. There is no doubt what they did and it will come to light one day. It makes me sick to my stomach to know that Patty and her kin suffered the way they did and for no good reason. There is no way they did not do anything but come upon these creatures they had it all planned and we will find this out I would like to have a few hours alone with the ones who are left.What they did was wrong and they have been covering it up for decades.MK keep up the good work and expose them for what they are.
The problem as I see it Tina...by Monster Hunter
People would rather believe individuals over film evidence...Green has Munns in his back pocket...Munns hasn't mentioned once about the red hole nor the bloody dog track....he claims one of the two creatures in the film is a shadow...he claims he has gone through the entire "original" film he borrowed from Ms. Patterson...the original film has been missing for years...that should tell you something about Munns...
I do think Munns is attempting to get on and be accepted by the BF conference circle that for some reason think these folks are Icons within this community...someone please explain what Green or Gimlin have done that has provided any type of unquestionable evidence?...simple answer...not any...
Both Green and Gimlin refuse any serious questions regarding the evidence and if and when they do their excuse is lack of memory...
It's that age-old saying from "Who Shot Liberty Valence?" rearing up again. Print the legend over the truth! It's makes some people more comfortable to believe "the lies" about what really went down at Bluff Creek.
Anyone hear the alleged (hog) screaming at the end of the Honey Island Swamp segment?
That hog had one heck of a set of lungs, I think I need a bigger gun to hunt hogs like that... LOL
I recorded it on my DVR but haven't watched it yet...now I'll make sure to listen for it when I do. I do like watching the shows where the researchers(if that's what you would call them)go tromping around out in the woods or swamp looking for their creature of interest...you never know what you may see that they don't see. I was watching an episode of Stargate SG1...they do alot of the filming from Canada...and when they were out in the woods I could swear I saw a bigfoot tree marker.
Missed another program...by Monster Hunter
I watch pre-season baseball and forget to watch these cutting edge episodes of hog growling...
This could be completely fake or enhanced...I have no way of knowing! BUT! This is the closest to what I heard years ago in the swamp one night camping that got me into all the BF investigations! A little more of a whoooo at the start, but the same length of time and power! I just don't believe it was a hog! In addition, if we are out anywhere researching and hear something like that, why don't these folks good have a look see? They may just find something or be able to explain the source!
Simple answer Mr. Phelps...by Monster Hunter
I say different. That thing whatever it was had some lung capacity.
Naturally, the subject is completely out of focus.
What do you think of the stride? Seems very short and shuffly to me.
I wonder why video cameras always (always) seem to go out of focus just when a BF is in frame.
Lots of other picks/observations, but I need to get some work done.
Have fun with it
-Mike in NC
I had just copied the link and was a headin this way. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet though and won;t til later on today. What yo opinion on it.
When you see videos like this...it makes me want to take my gun out and fire a shot into the air...I believe that BF will start speaking English almost immediately!!!! LOL
Desperate for some attention...by Monster Hunter
That is terrible IMHO...my question...Why?...
get them to dance too! LMAO! I don't know why but your comment cracked me up!
Maybe someone is doing a reenactment of their sighting complete with bad focus and a hokey snarl audio. LOL.
The guy taking the video was on 1110WBT talking to the a.m. talk radio host.
The individual stated:
-He and his lady friend were videotaping a local brush/wildfire as well as wildlife which was flushed by the fire.
-They saw this thing approach so he videotaped it.
-He could tell it was male from it's "appendage".
-He could see the crack of BF's butt.
-It had a terrible odor.
-It emmitted a "snarl" as if to say, "back off" and he noted the arm wave.
-He tried to follow it for more video, but it was too dark in the woods as it was near dark.
-He said it tore up the hill, through the woods, "like a deer".
It was discussed that the video was posted on the site-which-shall-not-be-named, and those people say it was fake.
The talkshow guy (as I type this) is calling it a total fake - likening it to a goof on Hee-Haw.
I'd like to know how he made out the sex of the creature in such low light, with the creature being so furry.
I'd like to know how a creature that takes about 15 steps to cross an open road could then run "like a deer" through the woods.
The lower leg is so boxy it's obviously a suit.
Fake, fake, fake.
-Mike in NC
Yes it is fake Mike...by Monster Hunter
No doubt in my mind...
Absolutely. Bigfoot aren't shaped or proportioned like that. I agree that its a poor representation. The tracks are most likely from the cameraman's own feet. Dang! and I thought this would be good.
...We got around Shreveport, Trying to run with their baggy a**ed drawers down
to their knees. Or maybe somebody's Grandpa with his new houseshoes on. ROFLMAO.
jim just wanted to say sorry i missed you saturday ,had to go see my sister she was sick but im looking forward to seeing you the next trip i realy have some things to share with u,
I see that you figured it out,lol.
Hopefully you can see this......

Yep...clear pictures...by Monster Hunter
But clear video and not of a mouse hound (cat) Mike...BTW...I have a picture of my wife's cat rummaging through my dog food sacks...I think she thinks she's a dog...
Sorry I missed you Sat.,but nothing new here.My dogs are not even barking at night,either our visiters have stopped coming or else dogs have got use to them,lol.Have you talked to the other lady,since you were here?She has seen one,don't know all the details just got her message today.I just called but she can't talk right now her son is there and he doesn't believe any of it.She thinks that they are getting braver.I've been outside quite a bit the last few days due to this great weather we're having,but have seen or heard nothing.But I am stili interested and looking every time I drive in or out our road,lol.
No problem...by Monster Hunter
I told you I would give you a call when I was in your area...next time I'm down your way I'll give you a call...keep your eyes and ears open...you never know when a Monster will be on your front porch...
BTW...Monsters are sneaky...dogs see movement and hear sounds...Monsters are stealth and know how and when to be quiet...they don't walk around beating and breaking trees...
with the other lady.She saw 2 on the pond levee Sunday evening.Her grandkids were with her and saw it too.I'm still looking and listening.I thought they may not be in my area anymore because of no barking dogs,but after your post not sure.Will keep in touch and maybe when you come back I'll be able to meet you again.You can come and look around my place and see if you see any sign.I have no clue what to look for and everything has been quite.If you come this weekend let me know.Will be gone Fri.and prob. be home Sat.Our granddaughter had surgery today,so we may go to Chauvin,because my husband is off work thie weekend.Should be home Sat. evening tough.
airs Wednesday the 23rd at 10:00pm eastern time on Syfy.
There is a rerun of Bayou Beast and Swamp Ghost

I do understand T...by Monster Hunter
I should have not posted that at all and let MH deal with it if it was a threat I guess but motherly instinct was taking over and I wanted to protect our MB! I have been reading the older posts from 10 years back and the MB has had to deal with some real jerks who alias as anonymous on purpose...so please forgive me. Now I know what happens when you type yourself up wrongly.
You should have told me sooner about my mistake...I am truly sorry.
...I get to go try and find about***THREE GRAND*** to pay my BACK PROPERTY TAXES.
Sorry, didn't mean to Holler. There's times when renting a place don't sound too bad. LOL.
Good luck Dew...by Monster Hunter
If you find more then you need give me a call...I have an expensive Monster project going on and need another 1000 myself...I'd settle for 500 but 1500 would be nice...
...a time when I have found too much money. I don't think it's happened yet.
Might be why I can't remember it. LOL
Property taxes are just proof that, even as an "owner", you're just a "renter" after all.
Don't pay your property taxes (rent), and the government (landlord) gives you the boot (and/or moves you into their "rent controlled" facility complete with 3 hots and a cot).
How ironic is THAT???
I wish our Founding Fathers could have foreseen this and banned property taxes (Fed and State).

Thinking about paying taxes...by Monster Hunter
gives me a headache...I'd have a little money if I didn't have to pay the IRS and the state...
...finished school, never got married, I wouldn't have any of this to worry about.
But, Oh No, I had to move away from home at 16, go to New Mexico so I could be a Cowboy, start working so I could make my own Money. Ha. This is what I get for all my troubles. LOL
Read your deed good and you will not find anywhere in there that you are the "owner". You are the "tenant".
Tenant...after all these years and I'm...by Monster Hunter
still renting my place by paying taxes...
...I'll have to drag it out and look this evening. "Certificate of Cash Sale" is what I got at the House,I think, or something to that effect. I don't think it says "DEED". thanks for mentioning that, I'm gonna have to look now.
I know when when I go to the bank and get a cashiers check for 38,500.00 I would like for the Deed to say "OWNER". It ought to say "THANKS". LOL
We will probably owe dear Uncle Sam about the same amount. And we, like you, don't have that amount in the bank or under the mattress. I hate tax season.
...and now it don't look like it's workin'.
You musta broke the message board. Shame, Shame, Shame...

Just got back Nellie...by Monster Hunter
Long day and I do mean long...a few things but not anything earth shattering...we are using a different approach in the investigation...in time I'll let everyone know what we have going on...
What more evidence you need . Mr. Landsdale? You already have Game-cam.

More to evidence then pictures...by Monster Hunter
I want day time no doubt your looking at a BF video...I want movement...I want more then several individuals in the video...I want it to be kick axx and that's exactly what I'm working on...I am patient, hard headed and persistent...hopefully just a matter of time...if not it's not because I didn't give the effort...
We want to share it with GCBRO members and those who ask nicely, CERTAINLY NOT anybody who goes by the name of Hellbinder or Van-Horn!
You do not know much about a proper investigation do you......
Hell, I wonder why homicide detectives waste all of their time following all leads when they could simply solve the case with a few shell casings at a shooting?
Maybe you should become the new Dick......................Tracy and go into detective work.
Jim Lansdale has forgotten more about BF research than most people will ever know.
He's also smart enough to NOT disclose too much without collecting all possible evidence, and he is certainly wise enough NOT to share his findings with any internet shmo that demands it.
Two hunters were dragging their dead deer back to their car. Another hunter approached pulling his along too.
"Hey, I don't want to tell you how to do something ... but I can tell you that it's much easier if you drag the deer in the other direction. Then the antlers won't dig into the ground."
After the third hunter left, the two decided to try it.
A little while later one hunter said to the other, "You know, that guy was right. This is a lot easier!"
"Yeah, but we're getting farther away from the truck," the other added.

The below is a joke...by Monster Hunter
It's not any type of [political statement]...a JOKE...period...thanks to a friend for sending it my way...
Please be advised I am sick to death of receiving questions about my dog who mauled 3 Muslims sitting on a rug next to my back wall, 6 illegals wearing Obama T-shirts, 4 Democrats wearing Pelosi T-shirts, 7 Hollywood "stars" espousing their philosophy on the United States, 5 phone operators who asked me to press #1 for English, 9 teenagers with their pants hanging down past their cracks, 8 customer service desk people speaking in non-understandable English, and 10 flag burners.
FOR THE LAST TIME ... THE DOG IS NOT FOR SALE !!!
I'll get you all 117 Loren Coleman copy cat books,and tapes of all of Biscardi's press conferences.
Don't answer yet, there's more! If you call within the next 20 minutes, I'll throw in a set of Ginsu knives, a Clapper, a Chia Pet, and......wait for it..........a clip of Meldrum stating that all three toed tracks are fakes!

I think Id rather have the dog and maybe a few of the folks the dog mauled...
Check out the moon tonight...by Monster Hunter
I went to the zoo yesterday and took some pics and was just thinking about how hard it is to get a pic of a monster with good detail.
This is just a pic of a monkey sitting still and it is hard to get "Perfect Detail".
Oh by the way, the pic below it is the Okapi, it is very rare and scientists didn't even know they existed until 1910.
The top picture looks like a guy in a cheap monkey suit.
I am speaking a bit tongue in cheek - but it does look not real although I know it is a real monkey. Time has gotten me so skeptical of pictures I even see fake in what I know is genuine.
LOL...I hear you Zubaz...by Monster Hunter
Been so darn many hoaxes of pictures and film it's hard to sift through the crap to get something authentic...
And a little closer.
BTW I know you were kidding,,,LOL.
By the way, looking at these monkey's heads brings up the possibility in my thinking that what we may be calling sagital crests may in fact just be the way their hair grows which is in fact the case here.
Looks like they own stock in Bryll creme.
Track comparison...by Monster Hunter
The last two came from Louisiana...Toledo Bend...a carpenter found these while taking a smoke break...it's been dry here with the lake being low...the man said the tracks were headed towards Sabine National Forest...picture taken right before deer season began here...
I kinda thought these prints were fake as well from what I got to see. And it sure fooled the guy who sent them to me as well.To be fair to him. None of us had the opportunity to actually see them with our own eyes. This was sandy soil, like most of the Cumberland Plateau. It takes a lot of weight to go that deep, especially on a ridge. And the ground was first disturbed by a dozer (most likely a D6). And to my recollection, this past June was a bit dry. Which could account for the shallow indentations. On the other hand, the toes in the "perfect" prints just looked wrong to me as well. But then again some one like him, or me for that matter, will only take pictures of the good stuff.
AS for me, I do tend to agree that these prints are indeed most likely a fake by some very imaginative kids that I was once was. But, I still have an ounce of doubt too as I didnt actually see them myself. My doubt is probably 80% fake, 20% maybe. The 20% owing to what happened to a subcontractor, who had a similar experience that I had in the 1980's , but neither of us saw anything.
Thanks to all who commented. I really appreciate your input. And if I gather anything at all worth posting, this will be where it goes. I have the highest regards for everyone who shares my interest here, especially MH, Lone Wolf , and Ruby.
You know Deerslayer...by Monster Hunter
This may be an excellent area to research...at least spend some time looking around and listening...we do appreciate you sharing your pictures and I'm proud of our forum members to respect your sharing by not posting any wise cracks...shows we have a friendly mature forum...people who are sincerely interested in this beast...
much respect for your comments and thank you for posting the pics.
I admittedly have little "field experience" due to my location in Southern California.
I have researched a few areas in Kern County that has a long history of sightings.
Sometimes things you see in the outdoors can really fool you. I once sat for 20 minutes in my truck looking at what I thought was a BF down on one knee. I took a photo of it with a zoom lens and it looked so real to me I almost took a shot at it to see if it would move with a .44 revolver.... The result, a shadow that fooled me completely.
I also once stared at a print going uphill in soft dirt for 15 minutes till I figured out it was a bear print within another bear print.
My point is, I love to look at all evidence here, and there are many here more qualified than me to evaluate.
I hope that anyone with alleged evidence continue to post here for honest evaluation.
You have a great attitude Deerslayer and I'm happy to contribute!
Okay...who watched Destination Truth?...by Monster Hunter
and what did you think?...they went from booger chasing to ghost busting...
Fan of the show but not a fan of chasing ghosts. Didn't care for last nights show at all!
I watched a few minutes...by Monster Hunter
I can't get interested in their ghost hunting...would much rather see the bunch on the trail of a mythical Monster...I did see a rerun of Beast Hunter/Man or something last night...personally I thought it was boring other then the possibility of being a thought extinct sloth...
I thought the three toed sloth was a docile type of critter that wouldn't attack a man unless it felt it or young was in harms way...but how the hexx would anyone know if they have been extinct for 10,000 years...
did you and Bobby ever capture that giant 3-toed sloth?
I recorded that Destination Truth program but haven't had the chance to view it yet. It made me wonder if after filming a 4 hour show if they would produce anything of truth at the end of the show or would it be just like all their other shows.
I have a better idea for a show for them...4 hours at MC with the monsters. I would love to see the freaked-out look on the girl's face when old stinky does a big growl in the dark.LOL
Nope...no 3 toed sloth here Nellie...by Monster Hunter
Hard to believe but there were a few hickor nuts that actually thought there were three toed sloths at MC...argued they wouldn't go down quadruped either...LMAO...listening to these old boys is and was a detriment to BF research...talking when they should have been listening...you can't go out once a month and be a kind of in the know researcher...you got to stay the course...as many days and nights as possible in an area of activity...
BTW...I have a picture of a rather large Monster down on all fours that appears to be walking following another Monster...
I had to mention it! Any monster picture you've got MH would be really interesting to see sometime. Do ever plan on posting any of your monster pictures you have? I have talked to several people that are interested in bigfoot monsters and when I've told them about MC and your researching the lady's monsters they are very interested also. They want me to keep them posted if pictures are posted on the MB. I'm not afraid to talk to folks about bigfoot monsters.
Monster photos...by Monster Hunter
Nellie...when I finish the investigation I probably will start putting up a few pictures...hopefully in another month or two...as long as I keep getting reports I'll keep hanging cameras...I think I'm beginning to know how to hang a camera now...key words...I think...
And personally, they should leave all of the live events to "Ghost Hunters" They are much better at it because they select areas to research that would take 4-7 hours to do thoroughly. Sorry, but how many times does one need to investigate a garden? I was bored within the first hour. IF they had shortened it to 2 hours and gotten rid of the girl who served as their "hostess" it might have been better. I DVRed it for later (where I could speed through the ads) but erased it before I finished looking through it.
NOT IMPRESSED...Although my friend Barry had a birthday on air!
Tuesday night...1st show is at 7:00...2nd at 8:00...3rd show is a NEW one at 9:00... then at 11:00 the new show airs again...eastern time. For those who want to know.
The show at 7:00 is about the Yeti.
Time to look at some pictures of suspected tracks...by Monster Hunter
I post under the name "Deerslayer", and last time I posted here a week or two ago I promised some pictures. So, here they are. I don't know what to think of them. So I'm offering them up to this board for opinion.
They were taken in the 80,000 acre Catoosa Wildlife Management Area, in Cumberland County, Tennessee by a job foreman with a road construction company. The prints were found in an area that was being seeded last summer. He told me that he had no idea who or what made these prints and he could even see where it had come through the woods before entering the clearing. He also informed me that a person he knew had left the area one afternoon after hearing "strange noises" like limbs breaking and such.
I am eager to hear what you all have to say about this.
Look the below over and give us an honest opinion...
kinda fake to me. The foot isn't rolling around in the mud. The track is just flat...no contours. The fake toes look good though.
It's not fair for me respond because I'm "arm chair" and haven't seen enough prints up-close-and-personal to make an educated opinion.......
BUT, it's the internet, so here goes
It'd be helpful to know what the distance between tracks is to see if it would match a human stride (meaning: are the close enough for a human to fake, or too far apart for someone to successfully pull it off?).
The "good print" looks kind of "perfect" and uniformly straight along the edges. The toes seems itty-bitty to me.....and too perfectly straight across.
Then, the last pic shoes a more V-shaped print. More than one creature? Angle of camera? Is the left foot different from the right foot for some reason?
The best print is shown 3 times. The rest are ignored except for the V-shape print. It'd be good to see pics of other prints for comparison.....
They look "fakey" to me. But again, that's just an arm chair perspective.
-Mike in NC
Quite alright Mike...by Monster Hunter
Your opinion is as valuable as any field researcher I'm aware of concerning the tracks...stride would be an important factor...were there others?...
According to the man who sent them to me, the spacing was around 6 feet apart. and there was only one individual.
That WOULD be tough to fake.
Of course, one could just walk along and press a mould into the ground as they move along a surface (saying later that they walked along the tracks before coming back with a camera).
I don't know the person who took the pics. Does he have a warped sense of humor? Do his friends/co-workers enjoy a good prank? Not knowing anyone involved, I can only look at the pics again.......
The "good print" is deep - as if something heavy made the print, which is a promising sign.......but the "V-shaped print" seems shallow. The ground seems tilled and there could be changes in the earth's consistency here and there from moisture, or large, hard masses of earth - which could account for variations in depth.
So, some prints could be deep and others shallow.
I'd really need to a few more pictures (presumably there were more prints as something/someone walked across that field). I'm really interested in the "V" print and would want to see more of those.
At face value, 6 foot distance between prints makes the story seem plausible..... but I'm still conflicted seeing a "perfect" print" and the "V" print.
The "V" is either a deformed foot......or a bad fake.
I'm still leaning "fakey" - without judging anyone involved with the photos.
-Mike in NC
of that drawing EB used to use of a huge wheel with feet sticking out of it. The idea being you rolled it across the ground and it would stamp footprints into the dirt as it rolled. lol
All these Monster Hunters...by Monster Hunter
with Mike and T being the only two to respond...surly you have an opinion...you're not going to hurt any one's feelings with your opinion...c'mon...I want some response from you folks...Deer slayer was good enough and took his time to share...take a few minutes, look the tracks over and tell us what you think...
I have my opinion already but I'll put mine up after others...don't be the kid in the classroom that sits in the back and never raises his hand...
making an educated guess on prints in a picture is not like being there and seeing them for real so what the heck...give it shot.
Wouldn't normally respond due to inexperience. Fake.
Yes I know Versatile...by Monster Hunter
but a person needs little experience to make a comment on what they see...so far so good IMO...
I have spent looking for the things and I have never even seen a print once out in the wild. The "perfect" print looks to me like one I saw in a magazine years ago that was faked using a wooden foot.
Due to other reasons mentioned.....The circumstances surrounding the tracks are interesting.......Why fake the tracks out in the middle of nowhere........ Unless you are aware that somebody will find them..... Which is the bigger question to me..... The ground was freshly tilled for seed planting..... Unless the monster was drunk and blind why walk across a muddy freshly plowed piece of earth when you could walk around it...... We suspect they have enough intelligence to "try" to stay undetected...... ? You got what you paid for my opinion........ Thanks for sharing........
up in Idaho would say!? The honorable Dr. Meldrum.
did the human footprint sink as deep as the bigfoot print? The print looks to me like it has a very slight rise in the foot(the fifth picture). The print seems to have a sunken area up front in the middle of the foot that gives a "V" or a "Y" look. The last picture shows what looks like the mucky dirt could have possibly stuck to the bottom of it's foot or the foot is raised in that area and doesn't leave a smooth print there but a roughed-up area like the surrounding ground on the outside of the print...if you get what I'm trying to say. Just my armchair opinion.
Those are some WIDE feet too.
It looks like a wooden foot was used to make impressions in the mud. You can see in one of the pictures that the edges of the footprint are deeper than the middle of the footprint. The middle of the footprint is flat and it looks like the "foot" was rolled from side to side to make it deeper. I really don't see a metatarsal break in any of the "footprints" specially since they are in the mud. There are no signs of forward locomotion in the mud. It doesn't look like the heel was planted and pushed off with the toes. The toes are not proportional the the size of foot. The depth of the impressions are not proportional to the possible weight of the critter. But then again, it's hard to tell from all the way over here.
Print is way too flat, not enough mud squish between the toes for a heavy animal, toes are way too small in proportion to a BF track. Also the toes are too straight across the foot.
Outside radius of track is exactly the same, which is what I would expect from a mold or wood "foot".
Track depth is not consistent seeing as it looks to be a muddy loose area. (This could be explained by a pronounced limp though)
With the surrounding brush why would a creature expose itself in the middle of a field?
Biscardi may want to do a press conference on this one.........
The pictures are press conference worthy.
Bigfoot Conference worthy,,,LOL
Coleman and Meldrum will probably be showing them around Conroe as the "Real deal" now,,LOL!
toes are to "in line" and about the same size. The main foot is as said, to perfectly in a V form. Just dosn't look real to this guy.
Let me first start off by saying that these prints we sent to me. I did not personally see them. I DO know that they were sent to me in good faith by the job foreman. He even distanced himself by stating that he did not "know who or what made them", but he's really puzzled by them. I also question them, as the toes look "funny" to me. Since I've never seen a bigfoot tract, I honestly don't know. That's why I sent them here.
These prints were taken in a wildlife management area that is 80,000 acres. They were deep in the area and the roads were closed. That doesn't mean that some employee or local decided to make the tracks. But keep in mind, the stride was SIX feet across. I can't do that. The area in question was a site where a bridge was built on one of the access roads and the roads were blocked 3 miles out. The area that they were seeding was relatively small as it was in a heavily forested region.
BTW, I talked to the guy again yeatsrday, and he said something scared the hell out of one of their subcontractors last summer.
Anyway, I myself am not conviced either way. That's why I sent the pics to you guys. As for myself, I think I'll go with whatever Monster Hunter has to say. I respect you guys alot, especially MH.
The print depictions could very well be geniune. From experience, not all bigfoot have and "arch" as we do. Especially when the creature is "very" heavy. The photos could very well indicate that the poor soul is severely flat-footed. As for the toes being almost perfectly aligned, this is not uncommon.
With the spacing being 6'-o", this homin would have to be in excess of eight foot or greater. It is very difficult for a perpetrator to leap this distance-man or woman much less a child.
I am curious; did at some point in the field the tracks simply stop?
simple test take your shoe off and walk in the mud will not look anything like this. Also when you are on vacation at the beach check out your prints they do not and will not look like a complete foot unless you stand there press your foot straight down and pull straight back up only way to do in unless..... you have a nice plywood cutout of a foot.
Leave the same type of impressions. That last photo the toes aren't so perfect. There is also another track (boot print?) off to the side that looks mighty perfect.
Being muddy when the tracks were made is an assumption. Lots of soft dirt and clay in TN. I have seen strides like that before, and it would be incredibly difficult to fake. Not impossible, but damn hard.
I know the general area Deerslayer says these are from. Pretty out of the way place if you want to create a BF stir.
Not saying they are real - just saying one pristine looking track does not a fake make.....
Fake or the real deal...MO...by Monster Hunter
Out the way place but men working in the area...this would be an ideal place to fake or hoax tracks...why would a Monster take this path instead of walking the tree line?...your guess would be as good as mine but in all my years I haven't ever found tracks in a disked or raked area...not one and I've looked many days and have disked and raked many areas where I knew there were Monsters...
6 ft stride...the Monster would have to be a minimum of 12 ft tall by my simple calulations...the foot would be in excess of 24 inches...by pictures the track appears to be 16 to 18 inches...simple math but hardly accurate...if the track is 16 inches the normal gait would be around 3 ft... + or -...the Monster would be around 8 ft tall...+ or -... the plus and minus would be inches not feet...
If the Monster, by taking long strides, was running, trotting or in a quick walk we would see the strike of the heel and toe push...what we see are flat tracks...Monsters don't walk around stomping their feet...they walk heel to toe when bipedal...
What is interesting...how did a hoaxer make six ft strides?...could the average person jump six feet with a piece of plywood on their feet?...maybe with some help...Wallace mastered this by being pulled by a pickup...here...maybe a four wheeler and a long rope...
The tracks are to symmetrical...the toes are small and unique in appearance...track impressions are completely flat...there is not any soil disturbance of heel or toe strikes...if I'm seeing the right left foot walk in the below photo there is a telling sign it's not Monster...Monsters step directly in front of their last step...the below impressions look offset...
IMO and without being able to look the tracks over closely...3/4 inch plywood...I do think the man was hoaxed...But I have been wrong on many occasions concerning Monsters...believe me when I say they are weird creatures...
But I have run into 16" tracks with a 57 inch step (5ft 7inch) which looks like 6 feet if you don't have your tape measure...LOL. I'd think more of an 8 or 9 footer.....just MHO.
They might well be phony baloney.......I am just saying that gait is possible.
Pictures show...by Monster Hunter
That their legs appear to be normal compared to approximate height and for the body they support...for an eight foot tall Monster to leave over a five ft track IMO means he was getting out of dodge...but by tracks and this is also MO...the track line has one step in front of another which indicates these Monsters take a longer stride then humans...but it would also mean by taking this longer stride there would be soil disturbance and not a pristine track...
The track line is interesting and I do appreciate Deerslayer sharing but they definitely look hoaxed...IMO...
I'll say this again...something I have personally learned by being in the field...these are some strange weird Monsters...I'm hardly surprised anymore...unless of course I saw one driving a flying saucer...
With all of the evidence of plows and machinery, my guess is a hoaxer walking along with a wooden foot on a stick!
One for left one for right.
Lay down the phony track line, then go back with a hoe or a simple scraper to remove the parallel human prints.
Very easy to do...........
Some hoaxers have a good sense of humor...by Monster Hunter
Unfortunately most of us don't when it comes to hoaxing evidence...Deerslayer did mention the man found the tracks, took pictures sending them to him...good impression hoaxers would have or would make a flexible type of track...a tennis shoe with a heel, ball with toes added...hoaxers think IMO...bigger is better regardless of how the impression looks...
after removing the prints he made while hoaxing the bigfoot prints?LOL
Next time your at MC or where ever we have a BBQ we'll show you how it's done......... LOL just think about it.
And as far as going to a GCBRO BBQ...I would LOVE to...but being married to a quadriplegic who would have to travel with me and not give a squat about monsters or anybody that wants to talk about them would make the trip a miserable one for me and my son. He puts up with my interest in them and he doesn't discredit the reports from witnesses' sightings but bigfoot monsters are not his "thing". Traveling ANYWHERE with my husband is a grand ordeal...not to mention traveling with a 19 year old who gets his old man angry a lot by not knowing how to keep his mouth shut about things...oh yeah,traveling with both would be a circus. BTW...poor me would have to drive the whole trip too.LOL
so was I..... and to be truthful I was confusing you with someone else. I fully understand the traveling with teenagers, but that was so long ago I've blotted it from my mind.... LOL Now the grand kids talk about me chasing monsters. Will spend about twelve hours in the woods tomorrow night conducting a follow up investigation.
Good for you Grumpy...by Monster Hunter
Exactly what is needed...GCBRO members in the woods...Good luck, have fun and let us know what you find...
I'm going to try something different tonight, I still have several Pheromone Chips that are now going on 6-7 yrs old so I'm going to hang one up wind and one down wind of my location to hopefully mask my scent and "Maybe" Piss off any critter(s) in the area coming to check us out........ There will also be two other researchers 75-100 yards from my location, as usual my digital recorder will be connected to my Action Ear the entire time we are there just in case.....
if your Irish. LOL.
I heard that the full moon will be the closest to us than it has been in 16 years and it should not only look beautiful and big but hopefully it'll give you a lot of light for you to see old stinky...but...it'll probably allow him to see you too so take care.
but the only action we got was from ticks........ we thought it was to early but they loved us.
All of God's creatures have to eat Grumpy...by Monster Hunter
Ticks are out along with wasps and bumble bees...no mosquitoes yet but I guarantee they'll be out in a matter of days...The mosquitoes won't be as bad here this year since it's been dry but we'll have our fair share...
I had a few free loaders found on me after being out Saturday night too. I walked around the woods without a flashlight though which was nice. I was thinking it was "too bright" out for any activity..... Your thoughts?
Full moon...by Monster Hunter
From experience the Monsters here move during the full moon using the shadows to cross the the then dim roads...anywhere IMO there hasn't been any pressure on the Monsters they'll move but I know a man who says his Monsters in his area will not move during the full moon...
In the pine thickets and bottoms with heavy timber and canopy there's little light...
They probably mounted some fake tracks on the bottom of some painters stilts.
Here is what I am talking about.
Fake simply for the fact it's to perfect. It's got even weight distribution and that's very rare for a footprint. Man, this whole work thing gets in the way of doing things you want to do. AAHHHH LOL
I too wish I had been I had been born independently wealthy instead of so damn good looking!
"Peas in a pod" square to the sides of the foot. I call 'fake' on this one.
Way too flat and disproportionate!
how long was the track trail?
Through the trees and over the dale?
2 tracks in a clearing yeah faker.
2 tracks photographed out of a trail that is leading to the muck - maybe a different story...LOL
Again, not saying they are real. But I am saying I have seen some things that should not be.

This is FREAKY.
I recommend for kids not to watch it but just imagine if something like this happened to the "Ghost Hunters"?
I imagine they would hang up their spurs,,LOL.

Sorry, I couldn't resist!
Fact or Fiction paranormal show last fall sometime. I know I've seen those hands before. But I admit,it's very freaky.
...Hamburger Helper commercial. that's what I say.
and I do know something about that.
Hamburger Helper that is. LOL
that Biscardi must have produced this.....what a joke.
Yeah it's amazing what they can do with CGI.
the video I was thinking of how cool the spcial effect was but it seemed to me like it was the same arm. I can't really be sure since the camera was moving too fast and all I saw was an arm-squatch.
Pretty much my same thoughts as well.
When's the BBQ?
Don't know Doc but...by Monster Hunter
hopefully before it gets hot...
Could be Booger related...by Monster Hunter
I've walked around this home before a few months back and can't recall seeing this...the lady showed us this door...of course we have no idea what did this but it was pulled from the bottom up...
was trying to get in pried the door on the hinge side. Which would require a lot of force to peel back.
That's the training in you Gearmo...by Monster Hunter
I didn't notice the metal was pried from the hinge side...good detective work...
And if it was monster related why did it try to break into that door? It looks to me that whatever did that had really good finger strength or maybe used a tool to do that damage?
Here's a nutty idea....dust for fingerprints.
Mobile home Nellie...by Monster Hunter
Michael did look for finger prints on the windows and door...didn't see anything...
A while back I woke to a gang of racoons working the back door where I lived very hard. Two where pulling on the bottom and three where looking on. I'm not saying this was from coons, I guess it depends on the integridy of the door etc.
We have no idea what did this Sliva...by Monster Hunter
Had to have hands to pull or pry with...there were not any bite or chew marks on the door...I do know who lives there...though I didn't ask about the door, they were not home, I doubt seriously this lady and her young daughter did this...I doubt they even go to the back of the home...
would appear that the door has a vinyl/plastic type exterior and has a sheet metal backing? From what I remember of such a door and if it was in fairly good condition it would take a bit to get it to release from the weld (or crimped fit) in the corner. Annie, get your gun!
I'm not real familar with this type of door...by Monster Hunter
But this happened to her neighbors back screen door...no bite or claw marks and a large Monster cast track...she has had chickens coming up dead...one carcass was peeled and eaten while others are found dead in the pen...no idea what's doing this but it could be a canine of some type...I need to hang a couple of cameras around her home...
They did find a dead chicken in this flange...by Monster Hunter
from a different neighbors chicken yard...it disappeared after a few days...
seem to be working the doors on the low end. I would think a dog would push through the screen rather then to deconstruct the frame work. When I was a young lad I believe a bf came into our house twice. One time in the basement, entry was through the basement storm/screen door and they used the handle. Now I cant say it was 100 percent but with all that was going on back then it's good odds, the second time they stole my 17 inch rainbow trout right off broiler pan on the kitchen counter with me 12 feet away in the living room. The pan wasn't moved an inch, no noise and not even a three minute widow of opportunity. I will post these and other things that brought me into the realm of belief very soon. I am going to talk to my family and have them post their stories also. Sorry for rambling.
Looking forward to the stories Sliva...by Monster HUnter
I know of a woman who thought they had a BF coming into their home...few items missing but can't recall the story...this was in northern Alabama...
Critters seemed to like messin with me. Once at my friends house (not far from my house) We where in the woods and we herd what sounded like a womans voice calling my name but it didn't sound right. Thinking it had to be his mother or mine calling out for me we ran back to his house. His mother was inside and didn't call for me. lots of srage things of this sort as well as the, lets visit Kendal at his tent and the old, peek a boo at the window next to my head. You know back then it was ever what I first thought it was. BF wasn't in our heads back then, so you always thought bear at worst. Man I tell you, when I was a kid I would have much rather it been a bear, wraping your mind around a larg hairy biped taking intrest in you was horrifying enough, let alone at night.
I used my "Powers of Observation". Sorry, I watch Sesame Street with my daughter. Something else I can tell you from investigating burglaries is that you won't be able to lift any fingerprints from that door. As you can see from the second picture the door has a rough surface which is very difficult to leave prints on. Usually when tools are used to pry these doors open you can see a crease mark on the laminate material of the door or the hinge.
So, in conclusion it is my professional opinion (from several hundred miles away and without having seen the actual door in person) that either the door was closed with an object caught in between the door and the frame causing the inside corner to be pushed out OR it was pried out from the outside. But then again I may have to watch more episodes of Super Grover....

All I can say about this...by Monster Hunter

Anyone else get "Blair Witch Project" flashbacks while watching it?
-Mike in NC
Not BF related but interesting food for thought nonetheless.....
Christian Bible, Koran, Hopi Indians, Ancient Chinese, Mayans, Nostradamus.
What do they ALL have in common? Their predictions for the end of the world are eerily similar.
Earthquakes: Chile, New Zealand, Japan.
Floods, Tsunamis: Indonesia, Japan, West Coast of U.S.
Wars and rumors of wars: Unrest all through the Middle East
Rising waters, Sea Levels.
Animal Fish Die offs: Bird deaths, Fish deaths. Near my hometown Redondo Beach's King Harbor was inundated with TONS of dead sardines, the water was two feet thick with them. Clean up is still going on with no definitive explanation as to why they died.
So what say you paranormal enthusiasts? Are these world events significant as to the short time civilization as we know it will remain? Or do you think this is all coincidental?
I'm looking forward to your comments and opinions.
Super Moon.......on the 19th.
There is evidence that the last time the Mayan calendar reset something bad happened on a global scale.
Doomsdayers...by Monster Hunter
While reading I saw this...I'm not making lite of anything that can cause a possible catastrophic event(s) but it does relate to some...remember Haley's comet and the folks who thought???...
"A lot of people just like to have the doomsday idea, 'I'm not going to pay my credit card bill, who cares, the world's going to end,'" La Conte said. "I can pretty much assure you that your January 2013 credit card bill is going to be coming, even after the winter solstice of 2012."
This is exactly how I feel...if it happens it happens there is nothing I can do to prevent any cataclysmic disaster so I'm going to carry on doing exactly like I always have...BTW...how would you be able to prepare yourself if this did happen?...don't worry...be happy...
My Bible says "No man knoweth the hour" so I'll just putting along till the good lord either takes me home or finally says enough, but too many folks have tried to guess in the past and ended up dead wrong!
Jesus even said that HE didn't know the hour that the father had appointed, I know I ain't smarter than him!
Only God knows the hour but this is also true--the world will NOT be destroyed. It may not be a very comfortable place to live for awhile but it will continue rotating. Finish reading the Book of Revelation and you will discover it clearly states that Jesus is coming to Earth to gather his people in something called the rapture or the snatching-up. We disappear for 7 years, then Jesus returns to Earth where He will rule for a 1000 years. Following the Millennium Kingdom, Jesus will fight and win the battle of Armegeddon and then rule Earth from Jerusalem forever.
However, Jesus said that WE WOULD KNOW THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES. Everything listed by Lone Wolf, is in my opinion, escalating at an alarming rate--the signs of the times are visible and for the first time ever, ALL of them are occuring. Besides earthquakes, volcanoes erupting, tsnamis, wars and national unrest, birds dying, fish dying, signs in the heavens and the increase in paranormal activity you should also add Israel becoming a nation (1948), Israel gaining control of Jerusalem (1967)and the push toward a one world government & religion (globalism).
In my opinion, Jesus has his hand on the door...he's waiting for a signal from His Father that he should open that door and gather up believers. THIS does NOT mean that we don't get up every day, go to work, pay our bills and live our lives to the fullest. IT does SAY, believers should be prepared--"look up for your salvation drawth nigh" as the Bible promises. I can only say what I feel in my human spirit--the time for His first appearing, which will be like a thief in the night, is drawing nigh. I am very encouraged by events because the God I worship keeps his promises!!!
Hear ends the Sunday School lesson!
That is basically what I wanted to say, you just said it much better!
Good Post Ruby
nothing you can do about it. Impossible to deflect an asteroid or get away from a 100 ft. tsunami.
As for the credit card bills, I just figure I can forward mine to you......right BUDDY?

Right you are Jim. But..... if you look at the trade winds and say to yourself...Hmmm - if those nuke reactors do melt down...where will the fallout be?
West coast of the US... that's where. Doomsday may just be closer than we think and coming from a whole different scenario than we think.
I may be spending some quality camping time in SW OK sooner than later...LOL And I am not kidding!
Nuclear reactor melt down...by Monster Hunter
That could be some serious business Scott...you might better find you a good camping area before it gets crowded...
coincidental. Those people making their predictions back then were no different than you and I. Just folks with lots of time on their hands with access to wine and the drug of the day. They had no more insight on the natural world than my labrador retriever does. That's just my opinion though and what do I know. Personally, if you tell me you see ghosts, spirits, ufo's, werewolfs and demons and then tell me you saw a bf, well, sorry but I ain't buying it.
LOL T...by Monster Hunter
I guess a person has lived a full life if he has seen all you mentioned...
the Earth is like a dog with ticks upon its body. Sooner or later the dog gets tired of the pests biting and itching it and then it will violently shake to rid itself of them in an attempt to feel better.
Sounds and appears as if the dog is tired of the parasites ;)We do not have much longer to be here. The signs are making themselves more pronounced and we should be ready.
End of times...by Monster Hunter
For all the doomsayers...I tried to listen but my bullsxxx meter wouldn't allow it...something to remember...mother nature runs in cycles...earth quakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and how about hurricanes...let me give you an example...as an Insurance adjuster I'm inspecting a meteorologists home...he climbs up with me and tells me...this is right after Katrina...that Katrina was the tip of the ice berg...he claimed there would be many more as devastating as Katrina yearly...do the math...how long has it been since Katrina?...how many devastating hurricanes have we had since then?...
If it happens it happens...don't sit around wringing your hands because of a prediction some person made regardless of success or lack of...these people have no insight on world events no more then I have...
Jean Dixon claimed the Kodak plant was going to blow up in 66 or 67 in Longview, TX...didn't happen as many if not 99% of the predictions never happen...
The history of the world has always had wars and rumors of wars...there has always been earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and hurricanes...read some history and the bible...the prophets thought the end of times was at hand back after Christ was crucified...
Don't let the doomsayers scare you...
But this looks pretty spooky!
Just what is the difference between a full meltdown and a "partial" meltdown? About a day?
Hopefully Scott...by Monster Hunter
They will be able to control the partial or full melt down...I looked at the chart and to be honest...it looks Japanese to me...no pun intended...
Goes East from Asia straight into the western US. There seems to be a lot of conflicting news about the meltdowns, but it doesn't look very promising.
The pointy heads say this quake moved the country of Japan 8 feet, and changed the Earth's axis by 10 inches. Very impressive!
There is also a volcano erupting there, just to make things a little worse.
While they say there is no danger from leaking radiation, they have evacuated a 50 mile radius around them nuke plants. I believe a 5th reactor is now in partial melt down. News sources say they are pouring sea water into them to try to cool the cores. Our scientists say that is a last ditch effort of desperation. That does not sound very encouraging.
They also released a statement that what radiation that has leaked (though they stated none has...) will not effect the western US. However, they will not address a full out multiple reactor meltdown. But you have to know they have thought about it.
Since the government likes to plan on everything. I can only assume that they have considered what a huge nuke cloud over the west coast would do. And have assessed whatever damage and death to be a manageable number. Evacuation would be a Cluster F......and it would be worse than the actual damage I am sure. There are only a couple of highways heading east - and they get backed up daily during rush hour.
I hope we don't find out....but it doesn't hurt to look at the real possibility of an even greater looming disaster.
Jet Stream...by Monster Hunter
Yes I know but...lets not forget the complete meltdown of Chernobyl...a flawed system that had little to no effect world wide other then in and around Chernobyl...will the Japanese suffer?...sure they will but not to the point of complete devastation...the destruction was caused by an earthquake and not from damaged nuclear reactors...could they become a major factor?...read the below...
By WILLIAM TUCKER
Even while thousands of people are reported dead or missing, whole neighborhoods lie in ruins, and gas and oil fires rage out of control, press coverage of the Japanese earthquake has quickly settled on the troubles at two nuclear reactors as the center of the catastrophe.
Rep. Ed Markey (D., Mass.), a longtime opponent of nuclear power, has warned of "another Chernobyl" and predicted "the same thing could happen here." In response, he has called for an immediate suspension of licensing procedures for the Westinghouse AP1000, a "Generation III" reactor that has been laboring through design review at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for seven years.
Before we respond with such panic, though, it would be useful to review exactly what is happening in Japan and what we have to fear from it.
The core of a nuclear reactor operates at about 550 degrees Fahrenheit, well below the temperature of a coal furnace and only slightly hotter than a kitchen oven. If anything unusual occurs, the control rods immediately drop, shutting off the nuclear reaction. You can't have a "runaway reactor," nor can a reactor explode like a nuclear bomb. A commercial reactor is to a bomb what Vaseline is to napalm. Although both are made from petroleum jelly, only one of them has potentially explosive material.
Once the reactor has shut down, there remains "decay heat" from traces of other radioactive isotopes. This can take more than a week to cool down, and the rods must be continually bathed in cooling waters to keep them from overheating.
On all Generation II reactorsthe ones currently in operationthe cooling water is circulated by electric pumps. The new Generation III reactors such as the AP1000 have a simplified "passive" cooling system where the water circulates by natural convection with no pumping required.
If the pumps are knocked out in a Generation II reactoras they were at Fukushima Daiichi by the tsunamithe water in the cooling system can overheat and evaporate. The resulting steam increases internal pressure that must be vented. There was a small release of radioactive steam at Three Mile Island in 1979, and there have also been a few releases at Fukushima Daiichi. These produce radiation at about the level of one dental X-ray in the immediate vicinity and quickly dissipate.
View Full Image
.If the coolant continues to evaporate, the water level can fall below the level of the fuel rods, exposing them. This will cause a meltdown, meaning the fuel rods melt to the bottom of the steel pressure vessel.
Early speculation was that in a case like this the fuel might continue melting right through the steel and perhaps even through the concrete containment structurethe so-called China syndrome, where the fuel would melt all the way to China. But Three Mile Island proved this doesn't happen. The melted fuel rods simply aren't hot enough to melt steel or concrete.
The decay heat must still be absorbed, however, and as a last-ditch effort the emergency core cooling system can be activated to flood the entire containment structure with water. This will do considerable damage to the reactor but will prevent any further steam releases. The Japanese have now reportedly done this using seawater in at least two of the troubled reactors. These reactors will never be restarted.
None of this amounts to "another Chernobyl." The Chernobyl reactor had two crucial design flaws. First, it used graphite (carbon) instead of water to "moderate" the neutrons, which makes possible the nuclear reaction. The graphite caught fire in April 1986 and burned for four days. Water does not catch fire.
Second, Chernobyl had no containment structure. When the graphite caught fire, it spouted a plume of radioactive smoke that spread across the globe. A containment structure would have both smothered the fire and contained the radioactivity.
If a meltdown does occur in Japan, it will be a disaster for the Tokyo Electric Power Company but not for the general public. Whatever steam releases occur will have a negligible impact. Researchers have spent 30 years trying to find health effects from the steam releases at Three Mile Island and have come up with nothing. With all the death, devastation and disease now threatening tens of thousands in Japan, it is trivializing and almost obscene to spend so much time worrying about damage to a nuclear reactor.
What the Japanese earthquake has proved is that even the oldest containment structures can withstand the impact of one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history. The problem has been with the electrical pumps required to operate the cooling system. It would be tragic if the result of the Japanese accident were to prevent development of Generation III reactors, which eliminate this design flaw.
Mr. Tucker is author of "Terrestrial Energy: How Nuclear Power Will Lead the Green Revolution and End America's Energy Odyssey" (Bartleby Press, 2010).
They now say there is a good possibility that another explosion would melt the containment shield. And we now seem to have 6 reactors in trouble, 2 apparently in full melt down. Chernobyl was 1 reactor.
They have evacuated a 50 mile radius, and told the people not to go outside and breath the "radiation in the air". I guess the inside air comes from somewhere else?...
There was another explosion reported about 15 min's ago.
I think it is worse than they admit. Will it effect here? Hard to say. Guess it depends on if the loose all 6 reactors, and if the containment shields melt. They are also expecting a major aftershock - around a 6 or higher, and possibly another tsunami. Which will just confound the problems they have.
"The nearby city of Pripyat was not immediately evacuated after the incident, but after radiation levels set off alarms at the Forsmark Nuclear Power Plant in Sweden, over one thousand kilometers from the Chernobyl Plant, did the Soviet Union admit that an accident had occurred. Nevertheless, authorities attempted to conceal the scale of the disaster."
1,000 kilometers is about 620 miles. Long way to set of a radiation detector....LOL
Mighty big restricted zone....
Military Crew Said to Be Exposed to Radiation, but Officials Call Risk in U.S. Slight
By WILLIAM J. BROAD
Published: March 13, 2011
The Pentagon was expected to announce that the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, which is sailing in the Pacific, passed through a radioactive cloud from stricken nuclear reactors in Japan, causing crew members on deck to receive a months worth of radiation in about an hour, government officials said Sunday.
The officials added that American helicopters flying missions about 60 miles north of the damaged reactors became coated with particulate radiation that had to be washed off.
There was no indication that any of the military personnel had experienced ill effects from the exposure. (Everyone is exposed to a small amount of natural background radiation.)
was NOT a prophet of God. The rule is--if the prophet's predictions ALL come true, then he IS a prophet of God. They stoned false prophets back in Old Testament days...In my opinion, Ms Dixon was lucky guesser.
-WOW-! No Pics of your Game Cam????????? Last week you were the news

He probably got good and hammered before he got on the net!
And since I and several others have SEEN the pics, that just prover that he hasn't a clue about what he is talking about!
...with a KEYBOARD. OOOOOOOOH
Your posts wouldn't even be allowed!
You must admit that even though your posts are retarded (VERY) they are still allowed.
I hope that wasn't directed at me, I have nothing but respect for the G.C.B.R.O. So careful where you aim plz.
Sorry about the mix up.
Friendly fire, Though I do need to get more involved. Peace.
This is too funny! BWA-hahahaha-hahahaha!! Hold on, hold on. Let me wipe the tears from my eyes!! Hahaha! This is what happens when children get on the internet without their parents permission. I suspect a teenage girl with an emotional crisis since they called out a sepcific person by name but failed to give their name. Yep, a little girl throwing a hissy fit! I'm gonna write a soap opera and call it "Sasquatches of our lives"! Cue the organ music!
Do you ever have days that you feel,,you know,,,less than FRESH?
What a "shitty" poster. Jim my dear sir is not obligated to reveal a damn thing. My answer to you sir is to get your hiney out in the field a prove to yourself that these beings are all around us. Fruitcake!
...if these monsters are ever discovered. Their only purpose in life, is to empty wine bottles and hammer the hell out of anyone actively trying to prove this animals existance. They don't give a Rat's Butt if the Sun comes up.
I say F**k and feed 'em cheese.
basically putting his info that he has discovered out there for the members of GCBRO which you are also privy to, this being a public forum. If you had one scintilla of refinement in your persona you would shut your mouth and sit back and wait. He, sir, owes you nothing!
Cresent City (up by the Oregon border) had it's harbor destroyed by the (politically incorrect and not reported) Tsunami waves that hit the west coast yesterday. I was listening to an official on the radio say "the second round of Tsunami waves didn't do any damage, because the first round completely destroyed the entire harbor"....Oddly on the news I find very little.
My Progressive Democratic friends are already working on making this disaster a political event. Because everything is a political opportunity for them. It makes me both sad and sick. But it does bring out the true colors of folks.
I hope they keep them reactors from melting down.

and they might just happen upon a Monster cruising and fishing these lakes...
Recently I got into an arguement with someone from the Northeast. That has never lived any where else. I tried to explain between Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana we have more forest than population than most places. They said the monsters could never be here. What the hell. ya know. My sighting was in Rapides parish Louisiana. What makes them so arogant to think they have all the squatches, many a database has sightinings thorughout the US and Canada. Sorry for ranting just annoyed by his "we can't have squatches in the south" attitude. Any thoughts?
Ignorance...by Monster Hunter
Unfortunately these people have no idea about anything other then their little world...Stagnant environment equals abundance ignorance...
Right on MH, right on! Yep how true! Hang in there Tim, we know what we know my man! That's for sure.
never really talked about them being in Miss, AL and Lousiana that much and they think that's what matters. Bet if you asked him about Florida, he'd say they could live there due to some media attention.
Just the Kisatchie National Forest is over 600,000 acres here in La. A lot of it is some narly stuff too! Hey, what part of Rapides Parish did you have a sighting?? North or South. I've been on the south end a lot, not too much on the North.
Ill be in Forest Hill this weekend doing some four wheeling with friends! Good good country for BF!
I've done plenty of four-wheeling in that area too. LOTS of woods there!
headed to the Ouachita National Forest in Arkansas for some four wheeling......
I lived off Of highway 71 near the grant parish line.
There is more standing board feet of timber in NE TX, SE OK, NW LA, and SW AR, than in the entire state of Oregon.
a lot of room for wood-knocking!!!
Yes we have some populated areas...by Monster Hunter
but there are areas that few have seen hunting or researching...we don't have those mountainous areas but what we don't have in height we make up with lakes, creeks, rivers and swamps...tell that fellow to take a stroll down in the Atchafalaya Swamp...guaranteed he'll have a change of attitude...
as a matter of fact the sign leaving Texas into Louisiana says...welcome to LA...home of the wetlands...
I was between semesters while attending USM in Hattiesburg. I decided I wanted to be a "Doodlebugger" for a summer job. To make a long story short the entire summer experience made me come back to school and work on getting my degree with a VENGEANCE! I did not want to have to work like that any longer than was absolutely necessary, MAn it was hard work. Anyway, those areas between New Orleans, Houma, Cutoff, Raceland-a different PLANET! I had NEVER been exposed to so much wilderness. Wasp nests the size of basketballs! Every bug out there either bit or stung. Beyond hot and humid. And everywhere Cotton-mouth Moccasins. Gators galore. Co-workers with names like"Sunset". So I know personally that La has mucho wilderness areas. VAST expanses. A body could disappear in those places and NEVER be found if it didn't want to. Never felt as much solitude in my life as I did that summer. ANYTHING could exist out there.
Apparently they have not seen the "Swamp Men" and "Gator Hunter" shows on cable! If the did they would have seen all of the large critters and vast marshes that have existed despite their ignorance.
When I first met MH I was a skeptic but I at least made the effort to get out and find out for my self. But when I saw how much undeveloped land there was in Louisiana alone, that sustained a large population of wildlife, I could not think of a reason why a large critter could not survive in the same habitat. So then it became a matter of time before all doubt was removed.
BTW, I currently live in the area between Houma and Raceland. We still have large bugs that you have to defend yourself from.
...Ignorance is bliss.
Guess that's why I look so happy some times.
You put this guy in an airplane and fly him over Mississippi. I hope he likes the color green cause he's gonna see a lot of it, just look down.
They need to look here in Tennessee as well. We have ridges and hollows that could hide anything. The laurel and rhododendron thickets and that carpet the ridgelines of the plateau, Cumberland mountains and Smokeys are inpenetrable. Besides, you have a lot of moon bat elistists in the northwest.
It is they who are ignorant. So I say, consider the source.
A couple of tracks/impressions...by Monster Hunter
We saw quite a few impressions...these were several feet apart...the ground was still damp from the rain and we have no idea how old these are but look old...when we went down Saturday a week ago we didn't walk in this area...
or at least the top photo looked that way to me.
A female track.
Looks a lot like some of the ones at MC.
Could be a track on a track...by Monster Hunter
hard to tell other then the toe area...we have a lot of critters but what separates the Monsters from others...different toes...
As a matter of fact...by Monster Hunter
The first picture is a typical three toed Monster track...though there are not any toe impressions I've seen enough over the years to know exactly what it is...
I found this on e at MC a few years back.
Nice Knife...by Monster Hunter
Older track...but it does appear to be Monster Rick...
like a depression that has soil dug out of it. (See the soil around part of the "track"). I often find that tracks in pine needles leave the needles depressed but not removed. We have lots of bears and moose here and lots of white and red pine forests so there are lots of tracks in that kind of ground condition. Don't get me wrong though, I'm just saying what it looks like to me. When you guys find this sort of thing are there other prints on the track line or do you usually find just one like this? Neat photo!
The track...by Monster Hunter
Has several canine prints in it and touching it T...depending on substrate is a determining factor of depth and possibly mud/dirt removed when stepped in...the pressed down soil would have to go somewhere...was the Monster walking, trotting or running?...it does make a difference...same with any animal I've tracked...
and I was thinking after that it would depend on the depth of the needles and decaying needles underneath. Here, that duff layer is very deep over loam and in some areas sand so a moving animal's foot/hoof wouldn't necesarily expose the soil.
It does look monster but monster has only one toe that I see and it's a big 'un.
Old track RR...by Monster Hunter
It has been rained in and on...just the outline without definition...the canine tracks look fairly fresh but still they're old...
I'd like to believe that this individual has viable "without a shadow of a doubt" proof of bigfoot. I do know first-hand that he and his entourage have collected video from N. Carolina, Kentucky(that's a given); Paris, Texas and from Tennessee. However, it must be noted that this man's profession is in real estate. By no means is he a field researcher - not by a long shot. In fact, in footage that this man has obtained has been paid for handsomely. He's a millionaire several times over.
Sadly, I know that he funded Jan Carter extensively to produce results-AND she and her "man-friend of that particular period" failed to produce results. Ten's of thousands of dollars changed hands and went down the drain - BUT nothing! Basically the man "got taken for a ride".
This is what troubles me about his release of the documentary. Knowing that Janice Carter had a foothold in this entire event somewhat taints things for me. I personally knew her more than I wanted to at the time and believe you me - "she's a space cadet".
She'll be playing an important part in the documentary with whimsicle allusions to psychic things and interpretations of "what the bigfoot are saying" in his video release. I find this less than credible as this person suffers from mental illness and severe depression.
With her being directly involved in this documentary (even from it's conception), I am going to take everything said in it with a grain of salt.
My initial opinion on this yet to be released DVD will cause me to immediately question it due to her "lies" told to Mary Green while writing the 50 Years: Tennessee Chronicles of Co-Existence book. I used to view this book as somewhat a "the bigfoot bible" but after knowing her personally and intimately; I have changed my views on what she told Mary to publish. Her entire book is riddled with holes. So naturally, what she told Adrian and others must be similar if not a reproduction.
I must also note that Mary Green is entirely innocent with matters on the book. Mary merely published what Carter described to her as being truth. Which later I found was not the case at all.
I guess in a nutshell - I am skeptical about the DVD due to her involvement with it. Once a liar always a liar in my book. I find it amazing what people will do for a "little bag of silver". If the money is present, she'll jump on the wagon if you know what I mean.
Just my two-cents.
Holding pattern until...by Monster Hunter
they reveal what they have...I know what type of video I want...good clear quality day time video of Monsters of different sizes...I don't want night time video by IR or thermal...to subjective and controversial IMO...
remember the Goobers of Georgia and their "BIG" find in an ice chest...LOL
My belief meter dropped to zero when I saw Matt Moneymaker's face on the Erickson trailer.
Now there's a pair for ya, Moneymaker and Janice Carter. Erickson must be gullible.
I reckon that's two strikes?...by Monster Hunter
I have no idea what the man has or better yet don't really care at this point...five years is a long time to be promoting film or video of any type of Monster...either you have it or you don't...
It's really not a big deal...by Monster Hunter
If he has it and sits on it or decides to open up and charge a fee...I doubt seriously anything he puts out will be free to the Internet since he has quite a bit of money invested...
A first for me...by Monster Hunter
I've spent many a day and night in the woods hunting but have never seen a pile of crap that had a full leaf, old pine straw and grass in it...actually Jake found this and did the digging while I took pictures...the shiny object is the leaf in the first two pictures...lower left on the last...
And ate some roughage to get something to pass?
That's about all I can discern from it.
Maybe like a hungry dog...by Monster Hunter
Found some scraps and swallowed everything he/she got in their mouth...I'm quite sure there is competition for food...a smaller one finds it...swallows it immediately regardless of grass, pine straw or a leaf before a larger one jap slaps his axx and takes it away from him...
Of course that is hypothetical to the point of darn near ridiculas...LOL
I have no idea Rick...but I have found green pine straw in runny look crap I assumed was Monster...
Runny gross looking stuff that I almost wouldn't touch with a stick.
follow the availability of pine nuts being ready to eat since they are so high in protein.
If they're picking up nuts from the ground it seems likely they would get some leaves and twigs as well.
Pine nuts and green needles...by Monster Hunter
Down here we have plenty...
That's some gnarly looking crap.8O
LOL Nellie...by Monster Hunter
and I think it came from a gnarly looking Monster...
here of somewhere else?
If the claims at the end of the video are true, the amount of visible detail should force the scientific community to take a serious look into BF.
My question/concern is, have the owners of the super BF flick been working on the documentary/docu-drama for five whole years?
My personal thought is that if someone wants to prove BFs existence, they release info as soon as practical. If they're trying too hard (years?!??) to make a buck off it (with some glossy docu-flick), my Spidey-senses start to tingle......
-Mike in NC
On a side note:
Here's a Russkie flick - looks interesting (another one of those, "I was minding my own business and happened to catch something on tape" videos.
Five years?...by Monster Hunter
Seems like that's a long time to get video in an area of activity especially when you have the cash on hand to buy any equipment needed...be nice to have an open pocket book but we plug along doing what little we can do with what little we have...
Monsterhunter and Timberghost....can't thank you enough for your generosity by providing some pics.. That wasn't my intention though. I'm just still stumped to believe that the scientific community and the national public as a whole has not began to realize what's out there and for me it seems it's because the ones who have real evidence keep it close by(with good reason) and the ones with fake **** keep getting airtime. You two have worked hard on this mystery and should be lauded, in fact, Timberghost I need to thank you more than anyone because you sited a location that actually came close to getting me a one-on-one encounter! Anyone out there reading this should pay close attention to what these gentlemen say. Anyhow, thanks for the photos and hopefully all of us who want to find out more about these creatures all i can say is get out in those woods and start looking!! I'm heading out in April. Thanks, Travellor
If I wanted to find a group of Monsters...by Monster Hunter
in Southeast Oklahoma I would ask Timber to put me on them...maybe he would or maybe he wouldn't...LOL...better know him well before you ask...he's had a good dose of BF claim jumpers...
These were supposedly taken in Southeastern Oklahoma last month. I have no idea who took the pictures..
This video claims to have photographic and video evidence along with DNA evidence coming soon...
This in from Pat B. on my forum. Very nice and honest lady and I have no reason to doubt her word at all...

I recognize the last two shots, Mike. As soon as you posted them, they struck a cord with me. I knew I'd seen them before, and not recently either. So I checked my external hard drive where I store stuff for safekeeping. And I found them. I think all five are from the same guy, Saycheez, who used to post stuff over at the old BFF.
Saycheez was well known for taking shots and later finding or creating "sasquatches" in them. He would take a nonedescript shadow and enhance the lighting to make it appear that there was a sasquatch face, or the whole body, or several of them in the photo. He would also post close-up pics that he said had a sasquatch in it, but then some of his past field partners would pipe up and post the original, and it would end up to be a magnified area too small for a creature of that size to be in.
The last two shots I happen to have in my hard drive ... [Mike, I can't resize them to post here. Can I send them to you so you can post them for me?] ...
#4 & #5 from your post - I have the full frame shot these two came from. It was taken on Nov. 17, 2007 at 2:11 pm. He had a long winded story about it being from his field site area, but he had some difficulty getting into the site or somesuch. (there was always an excuse) He took the shot then later when he got home discovered these creatures in the pic. That happened a lot with him. He'd never see anything when he was taking pictures, but later would always happen to find sasquatches in them. LOL He got raked over the coals pretty good at the old BFF for his shenanigans. On this particular story, it got bad. He spent quite a bit of time defending his scam and standing by it, even though it was blatantly obvious what he was doing. He made it a hobby, I think. laugh.gif
The second one I have was taken a year later, on Dec. 10, 2008 at 3:35 pm. He was asked to post it to show a comparison shot between his supposed sasquatch pic and the same area on another date .. to see if there were still sasquatches in the picture. If I remember correctly, he was roundly criticized for producing a comparison shot at a different time of year, when the leaves were off the trees. (A different time of year would change the shadow areas, making the comparison shot useless.) Again he made some excuse or other why he couldn't get access at the right time of year. And also, if I remember right, he could never get access to the property again.
Funny how that happens ...
Anyway, he had a lot of photos of this type, and every single one was doctored or enhanced so that bf's seemed to be in the shadows. All were taken without seeing anything in the flesh, but later when he got home, he would miraculously "find" creatures in his shots.
So...now you know...by Monster Hunter
I personally didn't think the last few pictures were of a Monster...didn't look like what I have seen or the pictures I have...
of the light colored skin on the last one, I haven't seen one that looks like that either. These pics kinda look like Elmo or the Cookie Monster.
Light colored skin...by Monster Hunter
Timber has seen the face of a light colored skin up close...me...all I've seen are dark...but then again...I have mostly three toed rascals where as he has mostly five...does this make a difference?...could be...
if even ONE of you guys here would ever actually POST even one these pictures you have of Bigfoot... They are apparently so good as to prove the real McCoy's look different than these fakes. close up face shots? heck at this point i would even take a blob squatch from any of you.
yet, im sure nothing will get posted. story after story, claim after claim. most have never seen even one. you guys have seen what hundreds? whole little cities of them living behind your houses and in your back yards etc...
ok.. so POST THE FREAKING PICTURES!!
seriously, i have been reading this site for close to 10 years now and not once in all these years have any of you guys ever posted one single shot of all these pictures you claim to have. there is no excuse and no legit reason to not put up what you have. the only reason is if you are flat out making up all your supposed evidence.
think about how absurd it is that you guys will put up 20 pictures of sticks in the woods but not one single image of an actual bigfoot that you all claim to have..
its a joke.. otherwise prove me and everyone else who reads this site and is thinking the same thing but to chicken to call you guys out.
Simple process and a need to know basis...by Monster Hunter
You're not on our list of "need to know"..."or see"...there are a few who I trust that have the pictures that will not put them all over the Internet...key words here...My Pictures...I did the work, spent the time and money...I haven't asked anyone for any help, money nor do I want any so this way I'm not obligated to share anything I have...
My son and I just got back from a four hour drive and a couple of miles of walking from an area of activity...you just spent 10 minutes sitting flat of your axx reading the MB...hardly an equal exchange of information IMO...
Our members have them and know what they are.
Think what you want too, the folks who have seen the pics know and they are all laughing at YOU.
I don't give folks that act like you a GD thing!!!!!!
At what point did you come to the conclusion that MH must have seen "hundreds" of monsters? I also have been reading this Forum for a number of years. Maybe eight years, I don't remember. But by my tally MH has talked about six to eight specific monsters over the years and other assorted monsters from other areas of interest. Or maybe all of the reports you have read from other BF forums are starting to become one big blur. (Pun intended).
It is my understanding that this Forum is a meeting place for people to talk about similar interests. That's why you will see a wide variety of topics being discussed. Some BF related others not so much. At no point have I seen this forum as a platform for MH to brag about all the sasquatching he does.
If the anticipation is too much for you to bare, I suggest you get out in the field and begin to participate. Start creating your own experinces so that you will be able to decide if you believe or not. That's exactly what I did when I first heard of the GCBRO.
Unless, that was an attempt to employ reverse psychology. In wich case, I retract my last comment and hope that MH doesn't fall for your clever trap.
about the charter members of the GCBRO-they certainly stick together and have each others' back! Now who wouldn't want friends like that! I haven't been a member for very long but I can in all honesty say that I am glad to be.
You are very right in what you've said.
We take care of one another and I can;t tell you how many times I've gone into defensive mode when someone bad mouths my friends. Not just friends. TRUE friends
That's right. If we don't stand up for each other who will!? AND WE WILL!!!!
I know what Jim has pictures of and I know that Jim is a straight up kind of guy and I'll be damned if I am gonna sit there and let anybody drag his or any of my friends or the GCBRO's name through the mud!
I stick up for my friends but I also tell them if I disagree with them, I believe in being honest and straight up with folks.
There is a verse in proverbs that applies, "The wounds of a friend are more faithful than the kisses of an enemy".
Think about it!
If you come on here with an attitude and demanding stuff, that is pretty much a sure fire way to guarantee that you won't get sh**!
We don't play that!
If you wanna see pics, try a new strategy!
If you just want to run our name in the ground, take a number and get in line!
We are trying to prove the existence of these animals and have absolutely no time for arm chair idiots that spend no time in the woods and want to try and shoot down our findings that we have so worked hard for.
First off go back and re-read your post. You have made it clear that you are uneducated, and know nothing regarding Bigfoot research, human nature, or common decency.
It is people like you, non researching, keyboard warriors, that whine and cry when people who belong to the GCBRO won't go out and spoon feed you information, and research results.
Who are you to regulate the distribution of evidence?
YOU try spending your time and money.
YOU try humping miles through the bush dodging ticks and snakes.
YOU try putting up with whiny dip$hits such as yourself..........
I would bet you haven't spent much time in the woods have you.
I have seen the photos and they are amazing. Don't you wish you had one shred of respect or credibility?
Then you could be studying the pictures as I have been.
In closing, I have wasted enough of my valuable time trying to educate you.
I suggest you bug off and try your adolescent antics elsewhere.........
Hellbender, I have also read these posts for years. And I have total respect for a great majority of folks on here. IF you truly are serious, you need to remember the filming of cryptids is tricky. It's much easier to shoot a deer than to get a good photo. Anyone who publishes photos that are the least bit fuzzy are opening themselves up to ridicule. And besides, pics like these are personal property. YOU or I DO NOT have the "right" to see them. And once a great shot is put on the internet, it is no longer the property of the photographer.
I trust these people here, and you should learn to do the same if you are serious about this subject. So, either go away or treat good folks with a bit of respect. This is NOT one of those boards where some smart *** can horn in and hide behind a computer to harrass people. If you want to do that, stick to Topix. Mature people don't really have time for such BS.
And told them (J&R Electronics) that they need to monitor how their people use their computer time.
I don't think that they pay you to harass folks on public forums do they?
Just curious, but I have to ask the question. If there are individuals with good, decent photos of these creatures, would it be beneficial as a whole to provide that evidence to the scientific community? It seems to me that to it would do some good, perhaps open the eyes fof more people out there that these creatures are real. If enough evidence is previewed by enough people than it could change consenting opinion across the board. While I do not have any photos myself of any creatures, I have had photos of footprints, heard wood knocks, found tree breaks, heard the gibberish in dark of the woods and been approached in the woods at night but no sighting. Yet I am open and free about what I have found, heard and experienced despite the ridicule and contempt. I just believe that the only way to keep this going is to take it all in and persevere so that more and more people will begin to realize it isn't some kind of joke. While I am not stating that everyone must provide what evidence they have, I am just wishing that those who are actively searching for these creatures could help to increase the awareness by providing real evidence as opposed to the multitude to fakeries and hoaxes you see on youtube and other locations. Thanks, Travellor
and it's only an uneducated guess, that no one has a CLEAR photo, just shadowy shots of what could be a bf family. Interpretations are always subject to scrutiny with many not seeing what the photographer or his/her friends see. In my opinion a clear shot of a so called family would be difficult to fake (much like a family of chimps going about their business would be difficult to fake) and such a photograph would be valuable to the question, is there such a thing as a bf? Sure would be neat to see one though.
I have one or several pictures and know others that do...by Monster Hunter
Us old timers do believe in sharing to a point but we're not obligated to show or prove anything to anyone...there is no doubt in my mind these Monsters roam the North American forests...I do have good pictures but I'm not through with the investigation...video cameras are the next step...
I have hair, poop and puke in a lab now patiently awaiting the results...regardless of results I know and can plainly see Monsters in the pictures as others can and have seen...I refuse to turn anything over to Meldrum or any scientists he associates with...all my associates feel the same as I...we owe him nothing and that's exactly what he'll get from me...I don't need him or any scientists tell me what I have in pictures or and film evidence when they haven't had a sighting or sightings of their own for comparison...to prove my point...Meldrum denies that some of these Monsters have only three digits for toes...the below is magnified where you can see the foot and toes of a Monster...
When I feel as if I can't go any further or get any more substantial film evidence I'll turn to harvest...as of now harvest in this particular area is an option but not before I play the hand completely out...I know and am fully aware science really wants a corpse and not film only for discovery...most of us could see clear pictures and or video of a group and know of their existence...science may claim film or video would be sufficient for discovery but I guarantee they would prefer a corpse...not a drugged Monster but one dead in the back of a truck so they can slice and dice...
the the scientific community is ready to accept the sasquatch reality. I was a detective for my local sheriff's office, and I have conducted many interviews and interrogations. Out of about 100 interrogations only two did not result in a confession. That's not a bragging point because my partner and I always did our homework and collected enough evidence to formerly charge our suspects. So the confession became merely a formality.
Although, I have not interviewed anybody related to or involved with the Patterson film I am not convinced that the film was a hoax. I have seen the tv specials, and I have heard the reasoning used to determine that the film was a hoax. In my opinion, all of the information that is available on the patterson film is contorted to fit into the "makings of a hoax". No other point of view or train of thought is really explored. Resulting in the video being dismissed as a hoax with circumstancial evidence.
I believe that the film is very real video evidence of an animal that has not yet been properly identified. Taking a pefectly focused close up picture of a monster will NOT satisfy the scientific community when a video won't do. But see how fast the "experts" will highjack the bandwagon when you drag a body into a lab.
My intentions in video...by Monster Hunter
I want the entire group in the video...it appears by pictures there are 8 in this group of all sizes and a possible cripple one...all 8 in day light video of different sizes would be darn hard to dispute...
Confessions...by Monster Hunter
You forgot to mention electrical shock, brass knuckles and truth serum to get confessions Gearmo...LOL...
LOL!! I didn't "forget" to mention those techniques. We just don't talk about them. But there were about five individuals who would have benefitted from them.
Why Jim and I and other group spend a heck of
a lot of time and money investing in game cam
To quiet the skeptics!
It's aggravating to be doing your best to try to get the high quality shots of what you KNOW that you have seen and to have folks tear it down like that!
I know that Jim knows this better than most because he is able to invest more time and effort than a lot of us in the group.
Keep this in mind folks, if we were trying to perpetuate a hoax or falsehood, why would we put so much effort into it with so little in return?
There is simply nothing to gain!
All that we are trying to do is report the news of what some of us have eye witnessed pure and simple.
Let me tell you something, the gear that we buy to do this stuff ain't cheap and it ALL comes out of out own pockets.
We don't have any government grants or a "Tom Slick" in our corner backing us!
To tell you the truth,I wouldn't want one, because he (whoever the money man is) might tell me to do things a different way than the one that I know works!
I think that has been the downfall of some "other groups", they have tried to sensationalize and impress the folks with the money or the pull or whatever and got caught in their BS and fell into ruin and as I have seen over the years now, it has happened MANY TIMES.
It's all about hard work and patience and persistence with a dash of perseverance thrown in there, this WILL be proven one day with the right combination of the above ingredients present in the mix, of course there is just good old fashioned LUCK in there too, in the mean time let the scoffers scoff, he who laughs last laughs best anyways!
unless the photos in question are crystal clear, they would only face negative scrutiny which in my opinion would hurt rather than help.
Even clear photos will be denied by some.
I agree with Jim's method of disclosure in that he is still in the process of investigating.
I also agree with Jim's next step to be video due to video being a much better piece of evidence when gait, movements and sounds would be included.
I also agree, and with today's newer style digital cameras they allow both within the same camera. You can use still photography to document evidence and then utilize video to document movement of any type of creature plus capture stills while using video all within one camera. The problem will be having the presence of mind to properly use these features and document under stress.
Video will be from stationary cameras...by Monster Hunter
I plan on setting up a four camera system with audio...I can store video and audio for up to 20 days before retrieving...I'm going to use AC reduced to DC instead of a battery base along with solar panels...bullet cameras with a wide angle but with the distance required for quality video...Tomorrow I'll measure distances needed for the cameras and then I want to get an approximate height of the Monsters caught on the game camera...
I am not using any IRs for night video...I want day time video only...the cameras may have night capabilities but I'll set a timer or timers to activate the cameras for day light hours only...I absolutely do not want any IR...we have done this before thinking the Monsters might be able to see in the IR spectrum...
In the pictures I have it appears the Monsters, three of them, are looking directly at the camera...possibly these three or one of the three activated the camera...
to be, I think it can safely be assumed that they are no dummies.
I hate to see such a valuable research asset go by the wayside.
There are a few people who have the admin code to my room (and you know who you are), I would like to see more activity in this regard.
I have landed in a job for now that requires me to be on call 24/7 so there are times that I will not be able to personally host the room BUT that does not mean that some of you can't.
Fridays are pretty much my Mondays for now so it is hard for me to attend most (not all) of the time.
This is such a valuable asset, I wish I could host it personally 2 or 3 nights a week, but I just can't attend to it all by myself, so if some of you want to be moderators, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I know who I would like to have on it and am hoping they will reply.
IMO this is very important and a tremendous research tool, please don't wait on me to personally open up the room before you open it up!
I want to see researchers interact and compare notes and so on, this is how strategies are formulated and workable plans are enacted.
