Snakes or lack of snakes here in the south...by Monster Hunter
You can visit nearly any pond, creek or lake here in the south and find snakes...unless you go into an area of activity...On more then several occasions while in the field in areas of activity I have had the reporting people tell me they haven't been seeing any snakes as usual...
A few folks I'm working with now told me they had copper heads and moccasins in their yard and porches and have seen them on a regular basis...since noticing these Monsters around the snakes have disappeared...could be these Monsters kill them for food or just kill them to rid their area of them...
I've put this up before but what is important in all my years and I'm talking many hunting, fishing or walking in the woods I have never found a complete skeleton of a snake...this picture was taken in an area of activity...
A healthy population of wild hogs will also keep the snake population down. But, it's been a cold winter. Give those snakes a chance to come out of hibernation. Obviously though, those monsters will make a meal out of anything that is edible.
Farmers and folks that live in rural areas...by Monster Hunter
keep cats who will also kill some snakes...chickens for the insects and smaller garden snakes...my labs were raising sand one night...the next day out in the front towards the pond was a dead large water snake...a big one so I guess that's what they were after...
come down here to Morgan City!!! LOL I've seen more snakes in the last 3 days than I can count!!
No thanks Ken...by Monster Hunter
Keep them all...I'm not afraid of snakes but a snake unseen until I nearly step on them that surprises me can make me hurt myself...
Years ago I was dove hunting in North Texas...cool mornings but would warm up during the day...we decided we were going to hedge hunt to flush some of the dove when it warmed up...as I was walking I bent over to go under a limb...laying stretched across this trail was a Timber Rattler...as I was in the air I shot the snake three times...scared the sxxx out of me...
Weird. I was thinking about this same thing the other night. My thoughts lead me to think about pesticides (or rodentcides) to be more specific. What happens when high concentrates of rodentcides are dispersed by pest control companies? The snakes eat the rats or mice and then the snakes become victims themselves inadvertently.
I wonder if this is could be an intoxicating situation that could be passed from snake-to-snake? Maybe even infect those in the wild?
Will only eat a rat if it is alive and kicking at the time of acquisition.
Could these rodenticdes affect the bigfoot if they consume snakes on a regular basis?
Poison...by Monster Hunter
The lady bought some rat poison, yellow in color, that you break up to place in different areas...she put it up high somewhere, CRS, so the dogs couldn't reach it...the whole package other then a small portion she used came up missing...I haven't seen any of the wrapping in my walking but we have found hair...hands full of hair thinking or maybe wondering if one of these Monsters ate the rat poison therefore causing it to lose it's hair?...
Piles of crap or hair balls...by Monster Hunter
This spot is where something apparently was sitting which is next to the above pile and approximately 30 feet from her porch...she said her dog was growling at something that night, Monday, at around mid night...she opened the kitchen door and told the dog to hush...closed the door and went to bed...she didn't know if the dog quit growling....
At the upper tip of this hair ball you can see a hoof from some critter...the lab told me yesterday the first we sent in was either deer or goat...I asked the lady without her knowing anyone that raised goats close by...I saw some goats penned when driving to her home that was approximately 5 miles from her home...she called a man, who BTW his mother saw one step over the fence at the grave yard some years back, to see if he had any goats...no answer...The dark spots you see in the photos are caused by my lens cover not opening all the way...need to buy me another camera...
Same spot...by Monster Hunter
You can see the indention where something sat pushing the wire, garden brackets, out...I walked this area looking for anything round that could have caused this circle without finding anything...
I picked up three different piles within feet of this spot...several others while walking and several I didn't pick up simply because I had enough collected...
Several large impressions...by Monster Hunter
a beat down path and a large area, about four feet, where something mashed the weeds down...I know there are a few rabbits but haven't found any sign of deer...when Steve and I first visited back in September we did find a few deer tracks around the pond...all that I've found is within 80 to 150 yards of the ladies home...the pictures she has of Monsters were all taken in this same area...
those are some of the bets impressions I've seen in a long time
I'm not an experienced outdoors man, but doesn't deer crap and goat crap looked like a pile of marbles? This crap looks like it came from something larger.
Goat, deer and rabbit...by Monster Hunter
Their crap is pellet, pill or as you said...looks like marbles...goat and deer about 1/4 to 3/8 inch while rabbit is a bit smaller...give or take a bit one way or another...I haven't measured any of their pills...
Another pile with...by Monster Hunter
Bones in it...it's been about 9 days since my last visit...this pile was old but interesting because of the bones...
This camera shines like a new dime...by Monster Hunter
I set this camera to the right of the trail...poured a pile of corn just to see what critters would come for a bite...at night the camera will be hidden if the what ever walks the trail leading from the house skirting the tree line...I set the cameras only on her property and mentioned she has trees but the trees are not conducive to hang game cameras...
Another camera...by Monster Hunter
I put up two cameras...
The trail is to the left with me hoping the critters walk the trail coming from the pine thickets behind the camera...Looks like I'll have to plant a tree to locate the cameras properly but have my doubts about getting any pictures of Monsters...

I'm just finally getting back to reading posts again. My son takes over the puter on weekends with his game playing and so the only time I get a chance at the posts is when everyone has hit the hay for the night but I had a rough weekend so all I wanted to do was to go to bed as early as I could. Saturday was my birthday and it was horrendous and Valentine's day I spent my afternoon taking my husband to the doctor and that wasn't fun.
You said last week you may hear from the lab on Monday or Tuesday so I was just curious if you did.
Just walked in the house Nellie...by Monster Hunter
I did talk to the lab today...nothing in stone as of yet...I was told to be patient which I guess I have no choice...had a long weird day...took quite a few pictures...collected scat and hair balls...found some good impressions which lead to a spot next to a small pine and laid or sat down...
When I catch my breath I'll post some pictures...
Time to vote...Darrell's canoe needs a handle...by Monster Hunter
Unless there is a come back...by Monster Hunter
Aqua Squatch is in the lead by 4 votes with Critter Getter running a second...One or two more days and you'll have a proper name for your canoe Darrell...
Critter Getter kinda grew on me.
with that name he could be after squirrels or raccoons....
A lot of different critters to choose from lol.
I liked "Freedom"...by Monster Hunter
Age and bad knees helped make my decision...
I say 5pm cd time tomorrow and we call it a done deal.
Over the past three years, I have been speaking via email with a little old lady named "Martha". She along with her two elderly brothers have lived in the same old house for decades - none of them ever marrying. Martha finally let me go to her house after much debate. However, she would not let me take any photos.
The house is riddled with paranormal activities of all types ranging from apparitions and ghosts to flying saucers and bigfoot. She contacted me last night and told me that the underground "digging" sounds had returned and that she and her brothers had locked the doors. She stated that a "little man" emerged from a hole in the ground through an entrance that is only a mere two foot in diameter.
Additionally, she reported that a flying craft of some sort keeps landing in their backyard. They also have been seeing a very tall, skinny, hairy "man" as they call it coming to the backdoor every night for months. I simply don't know what to make of this.
In the beginning when the reports started; I shrugged everything off as someone messing with me covertly. I figured it might be a friend playing a practical joke. I am taken aback to the stories provided by Keller and Knapp in their book "Hunt for The Skinwalker" as they described some of these same types of instances.
If they want to rid themselves of these apparitions...by Monster Hunter
Hang some game cameras around the place...works for me...
Years back I knew a lady, now deceased, who claimed she had space ships landing in her back yard with aliens coming into her home...showed me a place on her neck or back, been years ago and I do suffer from CRS, she claimed was an object inserted by aliens...after speaking with her for quite some time she mentioned she didn't mind them coming into her home but what made her mad they drank all of her Pepsi's...
Yes I had to leave immediately...
I find some people are completely and totally delusional...I have run into a few from time to time that claim to see and hear things quite often but not a peep when I investigate...guess these "things" know to hush up or not show up when I'm around...
BTW...I know a man that had a BF routinely walk by his window at night when he was watching television...scared him so bad at times he would go into town and spend the night with his "ex-wife"...that is scared ain't it...LOL
By doing some night time estimation using the outside light this whatever had to be between seven and eight feet tall...he gave me full access to his home so I hooked up a camera system...tape recorder, IR illuminator, quality camera system...left this running for weeks without getting anything on film but a fox...after telling him what I didn't find his night time shadow sightings halted...
He** of a lot more than Bigfoot or a ufo sighting to get ME to spend the night with MY ex-wife, I'll garawntee u that much!
my opinion is that you first have to eliminate physical, mental, or environmental issues.
Examples: Radon gas, electromagnetic saturation,can all cause delusions in those sensitive to such things.
Other symptoms include nausea,skin irritations,optical illusions,etc.
It could also be explained by a genetic chemical imbalance.
Or, it could all be real. As Jim mentioned adding simple tape recorders and video cameras could go a long way in proving whether or not there is paranormal activity or not.
I also find it curious that the elderly woman does not want anyone else to come to the house to either validate her claims or to help in some other way.
Hopefully this helps.
There have been cases of reported paranormal activity where the people have been diagnosed with a chemical imbalance that produces hallucinations. Following medication, all sightings cease.
As I said in the previous post, not saying this is it however with claims like these I feel all possibilities need to be explored.
The reason I mentioned a genetic possibility is due to the fact they are all related as brothers and sister.
They are also elderly and could be having the onsets of Alzheimers too. At this point though, I have no reason to doubt what they have been telling me. But I can niether prove what they speak of either.
I do believe that there are places of "high paranormal strangeness". Whether this is one of them - who knows?
are tough to judge one way or another.
There are things they can do to rid themselves of these things if they want them to stop, however they may be too elderly. Hopefully someday the family will find peace.
These folks have been living in the same house all of their lives. It is in emaculate condition for a 100 year old home. Thet've taken care of it well. They state that these occurences have been happening since they were children. Only recently have they purchased a computer (last two years). They were shocked and astounded that other people have some of the same types of happenings.
They think the internet is the best invention since sliced bread. What is really awesome is that they all three took an internet class to learn how to use their computer.
there is a "Contact Lone Wolf" tab on J Michaels Conundrums website from my show last week.
Contact me if you need anything for your friends.
Thanks Lone Wolf.
At this point I am trying to gain genuine trust with these people. They are in the stage of not wanting anything photographed. Nor do they ant me to set up audio equipment. I feel that in time they'll work with me though.
One of the strangest things that Martha told me is that one morning she went to the pantry on the back porch to get some can goods. They do a lot of homemade cannings and preserves. She found a Civil War belt buckle laying on top a jar in her unlocked storage pantry. I find this a remarkable story.
Why would a Civil War belt buckle (with CSA) on it it just simply show up?
Intriguing to say the least.
out of thin air.
A straight razor, war pin, and a garment bag from the 40s or 50's with a label that said Denver, Colorado.
I've never been to Denver..............
I find the belt buckle totally believable.
or has questions, here is my contact e-mail. email@example.com
My canoe. Were all in this together and since I have a chronic illness and cant walk the walk anymore I'll cruise to location via canoe. So this vessel will be used to continue our favorite subject and research. After a name has been decided (no matter how bizarr) I will put it on the canoe and post a photo on this board. And of course anything of interest found upon its use will be shown here first.
I think its only fitting for the readers of the board help decide what its called.
What say you?
That way you'll always have a bullet to take to the monsters,,LOL.
How about legs, feet,...by Monster Hunter
foot, or crutch?...
.....for your consideration.
As it's a water craft....
MOCCASIN (as in "water moccasin")
THE BEETLE ("water beetle")
THE BUG ("water bug")

HMS MYSTIC (Her Monster's Ship)
What's the deadline on a name choice? Just so I know how long I have to noodle on this subject - lol
Enjoy your new toy!
-Mike in NC
The SS Monster
..."the FLOATER". Well, maybe not. Disregard.
All my experiences with canoes have ended up with me getting wet to some degree..how about something like
Critter Getter? Sounds good to me
For one of your vote polls, largest percentage wins. Some pretty good names have popped up.
I dont care if people know what I'm doing, in fact I think the right name might bring me some interesting stories along my travels.
I have a contact in a Wyoming hot spot, if people along the route can associate the canoe name with monsters they may put me onto a hot trail.
Planning this trip for the summer.
If anyone has a creek or river they wanted to snoop around on let me know and I may be able to make the trip sometime, I'm out to have fun and learn plus meet the good people of this board.
Rick, you have any prowling areas accessable by water down San Antonio way? You dont even have to paddle, we'll let the 2.5 hp outboard due the work, even has a built in ice chest. LOL
I always check if anyone is researching an area before I make plans to a location I'm not familiar with.
You got it Darrell...by Monster Hunter
we haven't taken a poll in quite some time...
Be my Valentine, MB! Have a great Valentine, y'all and don't forget the flowers and candy for the wives; or to cook his favorite meal, give him a back-rub and a card for the husbands.
A divorce!!! LOL
but okay. What's good for you, has to be good.
That IS what he's getting. Long story.
conspiracy perpetuated by oprah and the hallmark alliance. That little fact still does not relieve me from my "sweetie" responsabilities.
Case in point: My wife had been taking pilates classes which ended last week. The pilates studio is offering a package of 20 classes at 20% off. She tells me that she wants for me to buy that package for her for Valentine's Day..........My wife wants for me to buy her fitness classes?????............RED FLAG!!! RED ALERT!!!! Run Away!!!! It's a trap!!!
After briefly considering faking a black out, I bought my wife her pilates classes. Turns out she really likes that stuff. Win-Win. Although I was left wondering if she was trying to give me a hint.....
Valentine's Day...is nothing more then a pain in...by Monster Hunter
my pocket book...I give to my wife, kids, mother, grand kids and mother-in-law on a regular basis...I have got to find me a job to get some rest...
Monster Hunter,,,it's not just a job,,it's an adventure!
Yes I know Rick...by Monster Hunter
But I never get paid...spend money on equipment, gasoline and travel not including my time and I haven't ever made a dime..not one thin cent...leaving in the morning to go visit one of my contacts...40 bucks in gas, four hour drive, buy a hamburger and get home at dark...that's longer then most jobs and it cost me to go...LOL...
I guess my reward is having fun and walking in the out doors...and I'm not real sure I'm having fun...
Valentine's Day...by Monster Hunter
I have spent close to 200 bucks buying for my family...I could have bought a game camera for that kind of money...grand kids will play with their stuff a few days, flowers will die, candy will be eaten and all will be forgotten...then the birthdays begin...never an end to this nonsense...
Hey Darrell...by Monster Hunter
Have you been back to where you had your sighting and is this one of your bait plots?...
The sighting location is to far away to maintain a food plot with any consistancy. Since my sighting May 20 2010 I have not found any sign of them its like they vanished. So its closing in on year since I've found anything. Do you think they know I saw them and left to another location?
The other area I did maintain weekly until deer season and returned after its close. But nothing has been touched since, except by the usual critters. I never did put cameras at my bait tree. Thought they may get comfortable with it and in turn allow me a shot.
I think anything is possible...by Monster Hunter
Darn critters are pretty sharp...I know next time I visit this hot area I've been going to I'll pull my cameras to see if she has anything happen...unless I have something worthwhile...
Seems as if you want to kill an area hang game cameras or let them know you know they are there...here at MC these Monsters avoided the cameras but witnessed by many...for some strange reason they remained...The area must be where they have been for years and years to not give it up...
They necessarily go anywhere. I think they just get more careful about being spotted and leaving sign. Got to figure they have a good 5 to 10 square mile range. I would think they roam around a lot, and just get more careful in areas where they come across people.
I think you are right...by Monster Hunter
Forage and hunt an area then move to a different forage and hunting ground...returning after the local critters get comfortable again...
Exactly how the Great Apes work it. Heck, they just recently "discovered" another new species that the natives knew about - but the pointy heads said was "simple mis-identification". Apparently once again the locals were right.
I do believe that's why one of my contacts...by Monster Hunter
has had sightings...hunters in the woods and the Monsters found them a temporary safe house...hunters leave...Monsters go back to their interrupted territory and routine...time will tell..
Watch this and make up your own mind just how safe we are these days
I'm thinking - not too much....
Oh yeah...I feel safe but...by Monster Hunter
I live in Louisiana...people in San Diego and all ports of entry need to stay on Homeland Security axxes...
Below is a follow up from that dreaded word I hate to use..."expert"...
BTW...I believe the security officer is honest or attempting to be as honest as possible...
I thought I paid that...I thought there was gas in the car...that is mis-speaking Not "we have found Nukes coming into the country"....Oh well, like everything slse, this too will be suppressed.
I live about 10 miles from the biggest port on the West coast Port Of L.A. in San Pedro, Ca.
Hopefully I'm out of here before all hell breaks loose.
I would never wish a catastrophe on you my friend...by Monster Hunter
or others I know that live in Southern CA...port of entries are everywhere on the coasts of our country...we pray nothing happens that will harm our American citizens...9/11 was quite enough for us all...
|This message has been edited by tiny from IP address 184.108.40.206 on Feb 14, 2011 2:56 PM|
that you would never wish a mushroom cloud on a Monday afternoon. LOL
I was disturbed to find out that in the Port of L.A. only about 11% of incoming containers are searched or scanned for explosives or nukes.
I don't really care for those odds......
The 11% they check at LA all originated from the port of SF.
How are language barriers broken?
Case in point: A few years ago I took a russian woman out to a archeological sight who wanted to experence some of the native american history in the area. We get to the location and in just a few minutes she goes into a trance like state and starts screaming out in russian, after about two minutes she collapses.
Later after we left the sight her husband says his wife sees things that happened long ago. I asked him what she was saying? He said, she was saying "Oh its horrible, I feel the pain, its awful, how could this happen". To this day archeoligists dont know why this culture vanished.
The odd thing is, she died a week later of a heart attack, she was 48 years old.
I have always wondered was she seeing this cultures demise or did she understand their language?
I'll never know and this event has haunted me for some time as I have never wittnessed anything like it.
Hard to say since she was talking in her native language, however it could be either of the conclusions you have proposed.
I have seen people have visions and describe what they see in another language they don't understand while in a trance like state. I do not recommend going into a trance like state because it opens you up and leaves you vulnerable to a spirit or demon possession. This very well could have been the cause of her demise.
She also could have just seen and felt what killed the culture that used to inhabit that area.
It is too bad she did not describe what she saw, it may have helped archaeologists learn why they disappeared.
When I get impressions of the past or future, i do not try to do it, it just comes to me naturally.
Example: I once had a co-worker tell me her ex brother in law was murdered. As soon as she said that I got an intense pain in my left temple. At that very moment, I was sitting in a car and two middle eastern looking men approached the car and one guy shot me in the head with a .45.
When I described what happened she confirmed he had been shot while sitting in his car in the left temple!
I described the two guys who did the crime, and she passed the info on to law enforcement.
She also confirmed that he worked with a lot of middle eastern men.
I do not know if these guys were ever caught.
My opinion is that if psychic visions and info comes to you naturally it is a gift from God.
If you have to go into a trance, you are flirting with disaster.
I hope I have answered your question Darrell.
Have you had any psychic experiences that would shed light on the nature of the bigfoot mystery?
Maybe if you touched some hair samples or footprint casts?
Maybe you could pick up on something?
I gave Jim a few insights I had that he and Jake are following up on.
Time will tell if I'm correct.........
I do believe that BF has a sixth sense type of skill that helps him elude humans.
Darn haints and Monsters...by Monster Hunter
I still haven't figured out what I saw when I thought Jake was coming back to the jeep with the SD card...I hear a loud pop like a green limb...looked up and saw something behind some brush that looked or I imagined it had colored clothes on...I didn't pay any attention because I thought it was Jake...Jake walks out some time later forty yards down the lane...
I do know it wasn't dark in color since I'm always scanning looking for dark colors and movement...probably just the run of the mill Haint pranking with me...LOL
BTW...Petey the pup hasn't looked down the hall...by Monster Hunter
and barked in about two weeks...last time he did this non-stop yapping I went into every room and told what ever if there was a whatever to get the hexx out of my house...
Normally about this time a year I would be sending out my first report complete with pictures, but not this year. I have'nt seen hide nor hair of anything since November. My bait tree has'nt been touched. May be the weather as its been rather harsh.
I did listen to J's and Lonewolf's video and dont think I could live with that sort of stuff happening around me on a daily basis. I've had four different experiences with ghosts, spirits, haints, and did'nt care for any of it. I think one night me and my best friend could have killed due to violent spirits.
Thanks for sharing.
Hopefully you have not been affected by evil spirits recently.
I believe that several serial killers are not crazy but actually demon possessed.
I have seen a persons face actually change grotesquely and reflect the evil inside them.
Remember Satan's biggest weapon is polluting the mind. Subtle suggestions, thoughts and ideas are more effective than physical attacks.
Protect your mind and stay true to God's Word.
In my opinion that is the best protection we have.
Finally...by Monster Hunter
5th try and finally got to watch but since Lone Wolf sent me a haint to my lap top I had to commandeer my wife's...takes guts to step up to the plate sharing experiences most people have no idea about...good for you Lone Wolf...
for all your support, but the haint is all yours....lol
I did not mean I could have killed but been killed.
One night back in 1977 my best friend and I were out setting a trap line, at that time coyote pelts were 40-45 bucks apeice and well worth the time as a good paying job was around 3 bucks. Well we set our trap line and set up camp on a hill above a creek. Roy my best friend was a person you had to know to appreciate. He weighed about 130 pounds wet if he had a 30 pound anchor tied to him. He was the cause of several black eyes and broken noses on my part trying to protect him and his alligator mouth.
Anyway we were camped out on this ranch and he saw a small pipe fence around this tree, he asked whats over there? I said "thats a grave of a cowboy", Well Roy being the person he was said "piss on him" and he did.
About thirty minutes later we heard a rumble of hoof beats and some one hollering in the night, sounded like "heeehiii heehhii". I told Roy to run for the trees and we did. After all the noise settled down we walked back to camp and it was completely destroyed.
We stayed the night in the back of 1964 chevy pickup. The next day we saw the rancher and told him what had happened, he said he did not have a herd on that section. He told us the story of the man at the grave sight.
It was in 1932, a stormy night, and a die hard cowhand who tried to stop a stampede, his horse followed the cattle off a 100 foot cliff. Horse and rider died. The story goes that they buried the cowboy astradle of his prized horse.
This was my first encounter with the super natural, but not my last.
Goes to show how words can play out.
reminded me of a story about a place in the Panhandle of Texas called "Stampede Mesa" and also of another Texas ghost story called "The Line-rider." Look up Ed Syers and see if these two stories are online. They are both good ones, especially the one about the mesa, which is still avoided by ranchers to this day for what happened there back in the 1880s.
Ruby "the queen of story-tellers" (she thinks) Red
Of the Texas Panhandle. This occurred close to a mesa named Antelope. I am not familier with the two stories you mentioned.
I explained this happening away as a rogue wind that lasted a couple of minutes.
Okay Darrell...by Monster Hunter
"I've had four different experiences with ghosts, spirits, haints, and did'nt care for any of it. I think one night me and my best friend could have killed due to violent spirits."
We're all ears or should I say we're all eyes...c'mon man...tell us what happened...
I dont much like to think about spirits and ghosts and stuff. I have limited experience with such things and just as soon keep it that way. I never go back to the same area that I had an experience I cant explain, unless its monster related.
I would stand toe to toe with a monster over something paranormal any day. I know one is real flesh and blood, but the other??
Need a good laugh?
Gotta love stumble-bum Bill Dance - best fishing bloopers!!
He does have some funny bloopers...by Monster Hunter
Always good for a laugh...
Come Satuurday morning I did two things.
Watch cartoons and Bill Dance,,then my dad would make me clean my room and mow the yard,,,bummer,,LOL.
Gotta take the good with the bad though.
I say that I watched Bill first, my Dad always used to watch him with me,,he passed on the cartoons though,,lol.
And all this time Rick...I thought your hero was...by Monster Hunter
Scooby Doo...LOL...I watched Scooby a week or two back with my grand son...still chasing criminals dressed as ghosts and haints...
Between Bill Dance and Bugs Bunny,,LOL.
I liked Wiley Coyote as well.
Just received this from a friend...by Monster Hunter
WOW, WHAT A GREAT WAY TO LET A COMPANY KNOW
ABOUT HOW THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS DOING! LOVE IT!
READ BELOW FIRST
A soldier deployed in Iraq had an Hewlett Packard all in one printer which quit working.
He contacted HP tech support for help to fix it.
Hewlett Packard Support (HP) told the soldier that he would have to pay them for the advice.
Watch this 60 second video for his response to them.
I don't know how many folks will end up seeing this ........
but HP customer relations will probably wish they had helped him out or even sent him a new printer.
BOYCOTT HEWLETT PACKARD - support our troops!!!
....simply going out in everyday clothing and making a "hell-of-a-lot" of noise attracts these beings more than anything (in Georgia at least). Possibly taking small children who love to play around and ramble helps too. This is the behavior that peaks the bigfoots' interest. Curiousity!
For all we know, the image in the supposed video is nothing more than a person in a camo suit.
The video is interesting...by Monster Hunter
The problem...you can't see what it is in the video other then a man sized figure...

"....What will they do if they actually chance upon one?"
Isn't Searching for Bigfoot Biscardi's group?
Yes it is Jeff...by Monster Hunter
I have no idea if Biscardi is involved in this or not...I hope not for their sake...
Probably run like He**!
We have been using the wrong kinda bait all these years!
See there we have gotta stock up on Zagnut bars, and all this time we've been using reeses pieces, I was wondering what we were doing wrong!
We have got some good ET reports though,,,LOL.
I'll be right here,,,,,.
I reckon so Rick...by Monster Hunter
Seems like I have always been behind the eight ball...these Monsters here won't even eat sweet feed let alone a chocolate bar...zagnut does have chocolate doesn't it?...well...no matter...I'll stay the course with my plots right or wrong...we know who lured a Monster in don't we....
No need to alter a method that has already been successful, only the tactics for a little while.
It is the peanuts withing they Zagnut bar. I have always had good luck with peanuts in any form. However, it would not surprise me in the least if this is not a Biscardi attempt. Thermal imagery means nothing in the grand-scale of bigfootdum. Clear, daylight footage is what is desired among the public.
I also noticed he named the footage "Squeeky Video". I find this ironic that he'd call it this. Jan Carter had a video called "Squeeky Footage". It wouldn't surprise me in the least if this was not some of her doing as well as she was a inhabitnt of NC just mere months ago.
I see some orchestration going on here.
Peanuts?...by Monster Hunter
If it's the peanuts then why not use peanuts or peanut butter?...why would this critter sit, stand or stay at a specific location that long to eat a candy bar?...doesn't make sense but then again do these Monsters make sense?...
What we have in this community IMO...many interested but few involved in the field...some of those involved can say anything with the eager interested eating it up as gospel...I've always thought this...we couldn't fill a thimble with what we actually know about these Monsters...we can speculate from experience but what I find interesting...Just when you think you have something figured out the Monsters do just the opposite...
I have a simple question...why can't we get pictures or a good clear daytime video?...I have stills and video of most if not all the critters within the habitat I search but not pictures of a Monster that is a clear no doubt Monster...why?...
My thoughts would be:
1. Lack of luck (right place, at the right time) to catch one in the open
2. Lack of equipment - something like a video camera which can be placed in one area, and which could videotape an area for hours - preferably days or weeks - on end without interruption so that monsters don't get spooked by human activity (not counting game cams - which they seem to avoid like the plague - due to human activity(?) or IR(?) or "????".
3. When taking video/stills (especially stills) - the cameras are in "wide-angle" mode, which covers the greatest possible area.
They NEED to be in zoom mode to capture greater detail - which creates problems like:
A. Any movement of a camera in zoom mode will blur a picture - so pic is worthless
B. Zooming in reduces the area which the photo will cover - so camera must be exactly on the subject at the moment the photo is taken (like when hearing something, turning around, and snapping a photo from where a sound came from).
4. With monsters behind bushes trees 99% of the time, cameras with auto focus will struggle to focus on what we're looking at.
5. Monsters avoid humans - which should put this on the top of the list instead of #5 - lol
6. Need LOTS more researchers in the woods with gear - OR - have more recreational types/shutter bugs with cameras in-hand, taking pictures of a pretty butterfly on a flower, when something "unexplained" steps out into the open.
So the only way to get a clear pic is to catch a monster unawares, in the open, in good lighting, with good gear (better quality film or digital camera / video), and an operator who isn't shaking like a leaf
That's a LOT of luck in one place, at one time.
So the odds are stacked against active and armchair researchers
Lack of luck is Number 1....by Monster Hunter
2. Being in an area of activity...preferably an open area without the thickets and heavy forest...
3. Proper equipment...video equipment that is capable of running 24/7 without human contact for a period of time..couple of weeks to a month...more then several cameras covering a complete area...
4. A person willing and capable to operate equipment...maintain food plots on a regular basis...
5. Keep other interested folks completely away from the area of activity...
I have several areas of activity, the time to work an area and food plots, smart enough to operate equipment properly...what I need is the proper equipment without all the bullsxxx from the various peddlers of "oh, you need this"...drives me nuts trying to decide which equipment will do exactly what I want...there is equipment that is affordable but when it gets down to the nuts and bolts of..."will this work"...peddlers say..."it should"...who the hell wants to invest in something that should...
Simple question if you know...is there equipment that can take quality video 24/7 without daily or maybe weekly maintenance....changing tapes daily, batteries or that requires a solar panel large enough to run a household that is affordable?...something that can video 24/7 up to 150 feet to infinity day time hours and approximately 60 to 100 feet at night...preferably wireless cameras to a substation located within 100 to 150 feet to a structure from the cameras...which will load the video to a computers hard drive...
I could sit in the woods for a week or two and change batteries/video tapes. Just need plenty good supply of t/p and deoderant - LOL
Your "simple question" is the most difficult of all, of course
I'm sure the military has cool stuff like that, but.........
Seriously, if I lived a few states closer to MH, I'd stomp wherever you could use me (so long as I could tote my FAL at all times).
(dang my lack of proximity!)
-Mike in NC
Location, location, location...by Monster Hunter
Yes, I well know...I would think the military would have exactly what is needed but there should be individuals that would know...I can always hope...
That has always been a problem Mike...by Monster Hunter
Someone that lived close enough to help...not every now and then but on a regular basis...someone who could go down and handle business without me being with them the whole time...
Lone Wolf and I recorded his interview tonight for this weekends Conundrums. Very interesting conversation about paranormal events in his life. However, during the interview there are some strange sounds in the audio stream of the program. Real eerie. We had a conversation last week that had some strange things happen then and we talk about it on the episode.
The episode will be online this weekend, probably Friday afternoon. If you are into Ghost hunting or EVP phenomenon then don't miss this episode!
As I edit the episode tomorrow I will be able to listen more closely and see if i can find a logical explanation for the sounds on the tape.
PS: LW, Great talking to ya!
You don't want to miss this program...by Monster Hunter
I know Lone Wolf has had some ghostly experiences with some of the paranormal activity caught during the interview with J Mike...
BTW...I suggest you bookmark J Mike's site and watch all of his programs...
Conundrums is AWESOME!!!
It was great talking to you last night.
I just hope your audience finds our interview entertaining and informative.
The hour went very quickly,I feel we could have done 2 more.
Yesterday I was plagued again by electronic weirdness.
My computer froze 30 minutes before the show, and took 4 restarts to get going.
Also worth mentioning, immediately following our interview my TV turned itself on, and my cable box rebooted itself!
I actually turned my laptop camera so J could see the TV going through the rebooting process......
Hopefully J you can figure out what the background noise is. I have heard this several times in my home, but during our interview I heard nothing.
For the record, no TV's or radios were on, no one else in the house during the interview.
Thanks again J, I hope it turns out well.
I edited the program today. There is music and voices in the background. Also a wind noise and "pounding", it drifts in and out. This is not an issue with Skype, or a digital thing. I concede it could be some kind of radio interference however I use no wireless equipment in my setup to record Conundrums. I use a standard Audio Technica ATA wired mike, a radio shack mixer and the laptop. The audio is fed into the camcorder and all of the show is mixed together in my video editor.
I traced each wire today and tried to reproduce the audio anomalies with no success. I even tried to create radio interference with my lav transmitter, other than a slight buzz it did nothing.
In the recording you can hear his dog bark, so it was recording natural background sounds as well as the overlayed strange audio. He and I were both alone. So no one could have faked this. My microphone is the type that only records sound within a foot of it.
And the audio fades in and out. Usually if you have a digital issue it will clip or cut out completely. I've had that happen, clipping is common and even the video will shudder because of loss of signal. On our previous conversation, and the show, neither time did I lose video. The video may freeze but it does not quit. This is simply a buffering issue and would not affect the audio except to make it choppy if the signal is catching up.
Perfect fades in and out could only be done with a mixer or in an analog environment. There are times during the show the "wind" almost overtakes our voices. In the "wind" you can hear pounding and shuffling of something.
The voices are near the end of the show.
After the show we continued to talk on skype. We were talking and his feed cut out, his face became a distorted skull and I lost the skype feed. I tried to call him back but he had gone offline. I guess this was when he had the tv and cable problem. Unfortuantly I was no longer recording when that happened. Skype closed and the image went away.
At this point I think Lone Wolf has a genuine phenomenon going on over there. I will have an MP3 of the show posted as well so feel free to download it and listen or analyze it. But watch the video as well, there is a photo of the scratches a friend of his received during an attack in the house. And you can watch me react to the sounds.
During the show I wear headphones and also an earwig. I could hear the sounds in the earwig. The little mic on the earwig is how the guest can hear me, the big mic is where my audio for the show comes from. I monitor the guest with the earwig and my audio in the headphones. Though i hear both in the headphones, the earwig is right in my ear and is louder so that's where i noticed the strange things the few times I heard it during the show.
When i got the show in my editor and could turn it up, I noticed more all during the show. Strange taps, clicking and other sounds can be heard. Even what sounds like traffic. The wind is kinda eerie, and there are pops * snaps that i didn't hear while recording. Some of these may be EVPs.
Usually I de-noise the audio to clean it up after every show. This time I didn't so the audio is raw. I did this so there is no tampering with the audio. You can hear the natural hum of the electronics and some normal background hiss that is evident in every show. The 'wind' comes in and over these sounds.
I'm hoping someone will slow the audio down and maybe do a few tests to determine what the voices say and see if there is more in the stream I can't detect.
I'll have the show up Friday afternoon so it's online for the weekend. And i post on our Facebook / twitter pages when it's online to alert viewers.
So, look for it soon.
I've spoken with Lone Wolf using my cell phone...by Monster Hunter
I have heard a hissing type sound a few times while he and I were talking....having no idea what caused this I just thought bad connection...This should be an excellent program...get to listen to some of Lone Wolf's experiences plus some unusual sounds during the interview...
Just to be clear during the interview my two dogs were outside, no radios, no TV's operating.
Although like I said earlier right when the interview ended, my TV turned itself on and my cable box was rebooting itself. I turned the lap top so J could see the cable box going through the rebooting process.
Also, I heard nothing during the interview. The audio sounded perfect from my end.
The only thing I notices was my video from my end would turn red and flash in and out. This happened about 5 times close to the end of the interview.
Kepp in mind whenever I talk about this, and even more so when I am trying to help someone overcome evil I have more things happen to me.
I take a great personal risk when I teach people the principles to defeat evil through the invocation of prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.
Also yesterday, my parrot Marty got slapped off his perch again............(He does not talk, sing or hiss LOL)
My only hope is that I can help someone with my information to live a normal life not plagued by the evil side of the paranormal.
Great show J and Lone Wolf.
I have a question for you.
What sparked your interest in Bigfoot?
I tried to watch the program 4 different times...by Monster Hunter
Darn computer would shut down on me each time...Lone Wolf has sent me a darn haint through the Internet...has to be a first...
dont blame me, lol.
You have your own issues over there at MC.
Hopefully I will get down there sometime to see them for myself.
I think you have many skinwalker type issues going on there.
You know what I mean............
Glad you liked the show.
I became interested in BF at a young age.
The Legend Of Boggy Creek both interested me and scared me as well.
As a child I read many books on BF and all paranormal subjects.
Chariots Of The Gods, UFO books, and anything BF as well.
My friend that was talked about in the video with the back scratches was here today.
He and I did a cleansing of the house before he left.
I am confident anything that was here during the taping of Conundrums is gone, at least for now.
Usually there is a period of calm, and unfortunately they always return.
I would be interested to see if another show would produce any paranormal results.
A few people that watched the show have emailed me with their observations of moving shadows in the room behind me from the 4 - 6 minute mark that went away, and several heard EVP's as well during the portion of the show that J and I were talking about the back scratches.
Just for the record, I heard nothing unusual on my end during the entire interview.
For MikeInNC and anyone else that would be interested, it was Bill Munn's Creature Suit Analysis that I posted on the forum a couple of years ago.
The easiest way to find it on this forum is to go to Search and type in "Bill Munn's Creature Suit Analysis" and it will take you straight to the topics.
Bill did a great job, in my opinion, of proving that it just wasn't possible to make a monkey suit that looks as good as Patty, especially way back in 1967.
See...all we needed was...by Monster Hunter
to be told where to look...thanks Pywacket and don't be a stranger...
......and was pounding my noggin' against the desk trying to figure out why I couldn't locate it.
You Da Man !
-Mike in NC
A day late and a dollar short Mike...by Monster Hunter
But now you know where the information is located on our forum if you need it...those folks were not interested in debate...all they wanted was a few laughs about a hoax...
Keith likes to follow-up on stories......and it will get several mentions between now and after the airing of the show. He mentioned it a couple times here and there every day so far.
I've sent him a little more info, inviting him to keep an open mind - and nothing more. He claims that he "wants" there to be BF.....but whatever.
So, I suggested that if he found any info interesting that he could contact me and I'd send him additional info.
If he doesn't contact me. No loss for trying.
(I know he gets my emails, btw, as he'll read some of my whitty comments on-air (like he did this a.m.) when I send them in. He does this whenever a listener has something either very thoughful, or very funny, or very sTuPiD, to share)
Anywhoo - that's it for now.
-Mike in NC
Hang in there Mike...by Monster Hunter
Maybe he'll get the point you make and do some research about the Patty film and this fictional man in the suit...
there's a good chance the suit looks good only because of luck despite its simplicity, if you catch my drift. Hope all is well.
The negatives MK is working with...by Monster Hunter
As you can see the the negatives are in less then quality condition...but it is obvious he can turn this blue looking negative into something worth while...I guess this is an example of throw away cameras and developing...
You can blow up the picture to say 8 X 10 or 11 X 14 without pixelizing it.
That means that you can blow it up and then scan it and pick out fine detail without loseing all that much quality.
Because the "Blowing up" process is just magnification of what is on the negative itself.
When you digitize it, then you start having to deal with the problem of pixels in the fine details.
So the larger of a print that you have before you scan the pic into digital form, the better detail you can get once you do scan it.
I just read what causes a blue tint on the negatives...by Monster Hunter
"It does sound like incomplete washing or contaminated chemicals, so it is probably time to mix up some fresh chemicals."
Probably contaminated or old chemicals...these shake and bake photo processors get their monies worth from these chemicals...kind of like a chicken place with their greese used to fry chicken...at times it is nasty...next time you order at the drive through at a Chicken shack ask a simple question...Hey!!!you fry my chicken in fresh greese?...they will tell you sure then spit in your drink...LOL
Blue tint on negatives can also be caused from errors in the processing process
and/or in the hands of incompetent, noncertified processors or boaxers
trying to cover up vital information. Something I've seen in the Patterson frames
some darkened images, some red washed images and some blue tinted images.
Most automated film processors have had auto replenishment for the last 45+ years but that doesn't mean the dummy operating the machine sets the gauges correctly, runs the control strips daily or makes sure the chemical replenishment drums aren't empty........
I have little experience in the development of film...by Monster Hunter
but it seems as if we are all sabotaged when it comes to having a Monster in your pictures developed properly...The blue tint can be removed from the negative with digital programs when making a picture but damnit a person shouldn't have to do this...the pictures she had developed were fine...how in the hexx did the pictures look good and the negatives have this tint?...
Whoever developed the pics probably sat bthe blue tint and compensated?
Whoever developed the pics probably SAW the blue tint and compensated to remove it.
It looked like Don and I had the same spelling teacher there for a minute,,,LOL.
That will teach me to proof read before I hit the old respond button!
Remember though, that a craft doesn't necessarily have to be creating a sonic boom to cause this displacement. I think that many of the UFO reports that talk about fast moving white objects high in the sky, are really these. Especially those that disappear and reappear. And, not just airplanes that are making them, but fast moving UFOs could also be making them.
Maybe so Steve...by Monster Hunter
Click here for a better high speed air displacement video clip showing the "cone" trying to form behind a jet.
That has always been a question in my mind...by Monster Hunter
When you displace air there is always a noise...if you haven't ever heard a bullet coming your way...you just haven't lived...LOL...
How could any object fly in our atmosphere at the speeds reported and not produce a sonic boom?...Impossible with our technology...
not with our technology.
I have witnessed an object traveling at at least 2000 MPH and stop dead, no noise.
It then divided into two smaller objects and followed a small private jet.
Another witness with me saw the same event.
You da man Lone Wolf...by Monster Hunter
"Impossible with our technology"...
You're just like trying to slip a sunrise by a rooster...LOL
Paul Hill, an Astrophycisist with NASA in the 50's and 60's wrote a book which was published by his daughter after his death a few years back. I believe the title was Unconventional Flying Objects. Anyway, Mr. Hill was in charge of NASAs UFO sightings by their Astronauts and he stated in his book that UFOs were neither unidentified, nor do they fly, instead they are "vectored over a trajectory" enabling them to travel through different mediums, be they air or water with relative ease and with no drag what so ever. I don't know what all that means but it is one of the more interesting books on UFOs that I have read.
Just to add my 2 cents and that's about all it's worth. I agree about "not with our technology". I once saw a circular object crusing overhead silently and then it looked like on Startrek when they hit the warp-speed button. It traveled so fast almost instantly that it disappeared from view in about 2 seconds and made NO noise!!!
or in other words not in our understanding of what is considered normal by our measures of science or common sense.
East Texas Steve's science is right on but somehow someway these objects are able to move at high speeds silently.
That is true...by Monster Hunter
I can't argue anything that I have no idea how to argue...kind of like those dreaded haints...you know they are there but you don't know how or why...
Definition of "haint" with an attached sentence using the word haint...BTW...I did not write these sentences so to all our lovely women visitors and members...I'm simply a messenger...
1. Haint 157 up, 28 down
def., ghost, apparition, lost soul
On his way back from Mobile my friend was killed on Bloody 98, and now he's just another restless haint.
2. Haint 124 up, 28 down
Chiefly Southern U.S. var of haunt, originally, but the meaning has since morephed to mean more than a ghost. It can also mean a scary bitch or mean person, usually a woman.
I tried to kill her with kindness, but that haint is just full up with meanness.
First time I heard haint mentioned...years ago...by Monster Hunter
Two ladies claimed they had balls of light in their pastures at night...they called them haints...
One of the weirdest and funniest reports I was told...by Monster Hunter
Two unmarried sisters in their late thirties or early forties told me that something was stealing their cut cedar fence posts at night...a couple at a time...of course I did my snooping around without finding anything around their stack of cedar posts so when I told them I didn't see anything they told me it was either a booger or a haint taking their posts...and yes...they were dead serious...
when you have ghosts bothering you!
Sorry I couldn't resist.............
I hadn't heard the word haints in years until now. A few old timers still hanging on from the 1800's used to use it when I was a kid and early 20's. The last time I heard it was when I picked up one of the local drunks who was running down the middle of the highway just before midnight in nothing but his boxers. He was white as a sheet and said a haint chased him out of the abandoned house the local cadre of drunks camped in. Strange thing was he appeared to be dead sober. Guess he was "scared straight".
It's not about our technology, but about simple physics. Anything with mass traveling fast enough is going to make noise traveling through the atmosphere, no matter what it is made of, because it is the displacement of air that creates the noise. The only way a craft could not make noise at high speed is to not displace air. You could hypothesize that the craft can somehow move about in inter-dimensional space. But, if it was doing this, you wouldn't be able to see it.
It would appear to move through regular space but it is actually traveling within an energy bubble that utilizes curvatures in space time .
Theoretic I know but that would explain the lack of wind resistance.
If it were making contact with the atmosphere at those speeds it would most like encounter the same problems as a body entering our atmosphere at those speeds,,frictional heating!
It would most like burn up at those speeds, especially with the geometric configurations reported, ergo, squares and triangles and rectangles,,,etc,,etc.
Remember that in the early 1950's people used to think you couldn't travel faster than sound. If you closely watch the video of the jet approaching the speed of sound, you can see why. Notice the nose pitching up and down as it passes by. The air compressing in front of it is causing quite a bit of turbulence.
Impossible with "our" technology Steve...by Monster Hunter
I do agree but if someone or something can enter our atmosphere from another planet more then likely they have "our" physics figured out...
My thoughts are that if they have the technology to travel through the atmosphere using frictionless flight, they certainly have the capability of traveling without being seen at all. And, what's will all the bright lights? Even we have mastered night vision. After all, if you want to observe us, why risk being seen at all?
"You can't get something for nothing"
Perhaps a certain amount of light energy is a necessary tradeoff for the capabilities they have?
They have no clue - for whatever reason - that we can see the lights? 'Book smarts' often times don't equal 'street smarts'
Like BF, we need a LOT more info before we can do much more hypothesizin'
-Mike in NC
If,,and I say IF,,a race knew how to create and travel in "Warp Bubbles" then it's all about technology,,IE,,a way around regular physical laws.
If a ship is traveling in a bubble and is not making actual contact with the atmosphere then it would be absolutely silent.
Because it would merely be bending the space around it and pushing against it and pulling at it at the same time.
All theoretical ,true, but as they say, the scene fits the crime.
Be one hexx of a bubble Rick...by Monster Hunter
to encase the UFO over Phoenix...
Our technology changes daily so maybe one day we'll ride in a craft inside a bubble to outer space...or maybe my children or grandchildren will...
I guess the size of the bubble depends on the power supply.
I think of the bubble as a sort of "Force Field".
You can see through it but it is nevertheless self contained.
Maybe they can even crank up the power and bend light and seemingly disappear?
Kinda like on Predator.
This is all purely speculation of course but with enough power and the right tech,,possible.
When they want to hover or interact in some way they can disengage the bubble and travel under their normal propulsion?
You are in a ship traveling at 99.999999% the speed of light.
the ship is 100 feet long and you are at the back.
you decide to jump up and run to the front of the ship.
Technically you just ran past the speed of light.
Same principle except the bubble is the ship and the ship is you.
Confusing I know but just think about it.
Another more common scenario.
You are in your car traveling at 60 mph.
you throw a ball up in the air in your car.
How fast is the ball traveling?
Now your kid in the back has the ball and throws it to the front.
How fast is it going now?
EB is smiling down right now
I am a Qbeam,,,,LOL.
I watch the science channel and discovery channel a lot,,,LOL.
You sound like my college Physics professor! He kept me confused for 6 months!
I am fascinated by quantum mechanics and physics.
There is so much we could do if we could just solve the power and fuel problems!
Maybe these little gray guys have got that figured out.
Back in the day, the earth was flat.
Back in the day, it was theorized that people would not be able (after a certain speed was achieved) to survive a ride on a locomotive! (something about not being able to breath air due to some silly physics or physiology).
Back in the day, man could not fly.
Back in the day (as mentioned on this thread) we couldn't break the sound barrier.
We're talking about a few hundred years of human technological barriers and intellectual breakthroughs.
If mankind can survive itself, in another few hundred years - we (in 2011) will be thought of as simpletons.
Can we even grasp the idea of infinity? Draw a straight line to that galaxy a trillion-billion light years from earth.......and then keep drawing another line a trillion-billion light years beyond that, and beyond that......etc, etc, etc, etc. Where does that straight line end? And what's beyond that???
Some say the universe is shaped like a donut. Well, a straight line will exit a curve, eventually - so what's outside the donut?
My point is - we can't imagine the possibilities of time, space, or physics based on what we "know" to be "absolute" or "mathematically possible" at this point in time.
Some say aliens do not exist because they cannot travel at such high speeds and with radical maneuvers - because the G-forces would kill them!
Yes........and "high speed" travel by locomotive will suck the air out of your lungs.
-Mike in NC
frigging awesome right there man
I'll build a food plot...by Monster Hunter
for aliens if someone can tell me what to plant or feed and maybe we can nab one of the little sawed off bastxxxx and have him explain their physics...
As Bill Clinton said...
"Tell me how and be specific"...
In regard to a bit of discussion earlier about UFO's and atmospheric displacement, here is something to consider.
Anything traveling through the atmosphere at an indicated air speed greater than sound will make a noise. This noise may or may not be a sonic boom, but most likely will be, if you are in the right position and proximity to the object. But, it also might be a roar, or a ripping or sizzling sound, depending upon the size and shape of the object. If you have ever been downrange of a high powered rifle bullet as it passed you, you heard it make a zip then a cracking sound as it flew by you.
When something moves through the air, it compresses then displaces air as the air moves out of its way. Whether it be a car, airplane, bullet, or a baseball bat, the air will temporarily compress in front (and to a lesser degree, around) of the object, and then move out of its way. It is the same effect as moving a boat paddle through the water. And, just like a boat moving through water, that displaced air will move in waves that you can feel, and sometimes hear and see if the object is moving fast enough. See the actual picture of the waves coming off of the bullet car.
When an object moves fast enough through the atmosphere that the air begins to greatly compress and have a much harder time moving out of the way, some other interesting things can happen. One of them, is the creation of a sonic boom, or other sounds. And, if the object is moving at high enough speed, it can actually carry a cone-shaped compressed cloud of humidity with it. (See picture of F-18)
As long as the craft maintains that speed in those atmospheric conditions, that cone of compressed air will follow it. That is a real photo, and here is the link to an actual video of an airplane approaching speeds that create and then dissipate the cone:
Now, this has led me to another theory. Notice that the cone forms behind the aircraft. This would cause an observer at a distance to perhaps not see the aircraft, but instead, see a white disc, cone, or ball-shaped object moving through the sky at high speed. Also, recall all the sightings of these white objects in which they seem to disappear and then re-appear again in another part of the sky. This could be due to the craft slowing down and losing the cone, and then accelerating again and re-creating it.
I'm not saying that all white ball or cone-shaped UFOs are just high-speed airplanes. What I'm saying is that some of these sightings could actually be UFOs traveling through the sky causing this visual phenomena. Obviously, the white ball or cone-shaped objects that are displaying maneuvers not capable of airplanes, are not airplanes.
I agree with what you are saying Steve, a bull whip is a simple example also.
However,I have witnessed an object traveling at at least 2000 MPH and stop dead, no noise.
It then divided into two smaller objects and followed a small private jet in a different direction.
Another witness with me saw the same event.
this was NOT an airplane, or anything else of this earth.
Also, any object traveling at that speed and coming to a dead stop would turn a human pilot into jelly.
If I lived in a desert....by Monster Hunter
I would become a sky watcher just to see if a UFO would buzz me...find a good elevated spot to watch hundreds of miles in every direction...of course I would have to have a food plot to see if the Monsters would come in for a snack...
The bone was really not a bone but...by Monster Hunter
the hoof of a small pig or deer...they also told me they were not sure if this was coughed up, because of the smell of puke, or crapped out but I haven't spoken to anyone since last week...I made a call yesterday with my contact working in the lab without returning my call...I'll call back today if I haven't heard anything by noon...I'm still unsure of what the hair and dung came from...

Talked to the lab this morning...by Monster Hunter
Should have some answers one way or another by Monday or Tuesday...but I've been through this before so I'm not holding my breath but it would be nice to have some information one way or another...
The negatives...by Monster Hunter
I spoke with MK yesterday...he was working with the negatives but I haven't heard from him today...he may of had to work but he'll call me when he has something...we know there are Monsters we just hope he can get us a close look...
doesn't do what the one a few years ago did. POOF, they were gone LOL
I can't wait to hear what the lab has to say. I guess good things come to those who wait...huh? I can't wait to see what you get from the negatives. I would really like to see whatever you have. Good luck with all. Keep us posted!
LOL...it could have been painful...by Monster Hunter
Diet certainly has something to do with their digestive system and which end the waste comes out of...if they swallowed a hog leg more then likely it would be coughed up...a pig or deer hoof?...I've been doing this a long time and these are the first turds I've seen this long...it's not dog, hog, cat or any animal that I know of...hopefully the lab will have some answers...

Puke out pellets of bone and hair although a piece of hoof seems to big for an owl. Was your find under a tree?
It was in an open area T...by Monster Hunter
Nearest tree 50 feet or more away...in our tower stand a couple of owls used it for home base with young...I've seen the remnants of bones and hair in their crap but nothing as big and long with that much hair...many rat skulls and hair assumed that came from rats...
A group of Alabama friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck.
"Where's Henry?" the others asked.
"Henry had a stroke o' some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied.
"You left Henry layin' out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired.
"A tough call," nodded the hunter. "But I figured no one's gonna steal Henry!"
The owner of a golf course in Georgia was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help.
He called her into his office and said, "Y'all graduated from the University of Georgia and I need some help. If I wuz to give yew $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?"
The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, "Everthaing but my earrings."
A senior citizen in Louisiana was overheard saying ... "When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana."
When asked why, he replied, "I'd rather be in Louisiana 'cause everythaing happens in Louisiana 20 years later than in the rest of the world."
The young man from Mississippi came running into the store and said to his buddy, "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!"
Bubba replied, "Did y'all see who it was?"
The young man answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license number."
A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait.
A passerby studied the scene as he drove by, and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.
The man replied, "I got a flat tahr."
The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?"
The man responded, "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. I never did understand that neither."
A Tennessee State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65. The trooper asked, "Got any ID?"
The driver replied, "Bout whut?"
The Sheriff pulled up next to the guy unloading garbage out of his pick-up into the ditch. The Sheriff asked, "Why are you dumping garbage in the ditch? Don't you see that sign right over your head."
"Yep," he replied. "That's why I'm dumpin' it here, 'cause it says: 'Fine For Dumping Garbage.' "
I'm a Texan, hope nobody's offended....the South will rise again!!

My wife is so hard of hearing. I told her to bring home a party tray for the super bowl game, and she thought I said "potty tray." She showed up at the house with a bed pan full of tootsie rolls.
A young lady from Mississippi was flying to New York City for the first time. As she took her seat next to two sophisticated women she asked them,"Where are ya'll from?" One of the ladies replied,"Where we are from we don't end our sentences with prepositions!" The Mississippi gal thought for a second, then said,"I'm sorry, where are ya'll from, b***h!"
Don't be afraid to talk Monsters...by Monster Hunter
with anyone...you might be surprised at what and who you learn are interested...found a new contact late afternoon yesterday by talking Monsters...it's hard to find good reliable contacts...
I talked to a lot of loggers and native Americans that were full of great information.
Proves my point Lone Wolf...by Monster Hunter
Television has promoted the subject of Monsters and Ghosts so it's not like people haven't heard about BF...If you live in a large city more then likely your next door neighbor is not a contact but people who hunt and live in areas of Monster habitat may have something you would like to hear and know...
A few of my contacts are wood choppers...many hunters and quite a few who live in rural areas...I have a few contacts that live in semi rural areas...you never know where a Monster will set up house...
A man told me a few months back he saw a suspected male, female and a youngster not far from my house, a couple of miles, in a field off a busy highway...I live in a semi rural area...
I even have a judge as a contact...by Monster Hunter
So you never know who has seen, had an encounter or experience with something strange...
even people who don't live in these areas may have to drive through them daily......you never know what you might see crossing a road.
I mentioned it to a contactor who spent a few days working at my house, and he told me his family is from Fouke, Arkansas, and that his grandma told him that sometimes she would leave leftovers out for critters on a stump behind the house, and a couple times she saw certain bipedal creature snatch the leftovers then lumber off into the woods.
Sorry Lou...by Monster Hunter
I haven't forgotten you...I'll drop you an email...
Got a pleasant surprise when I mentioned "honey bears" to a Christian friend of ours whose name I have mentioned on the board before. He told about a relative in East Texas who had problems with honey bears; he was surprised when I told him his relative was speaking of Bigfoot-type critters. Now, we exchange stories often and he's even became a member of Rick Tullos' group.
NOW I'M ABOUT TO MAKE A SHAMELESS PLUG--Wendel G. Williamson is the finest pencil sketch artist I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He often appears at gun shows and flea markets selling his wonderful prints. IF you should ever attend such a function in Texas look for a booth selling sketches. He's a great talker, too and very interested in Monsters...
Because a t.v. crew is coming to Uwharrie Natl. Forest to take part in a BF hunt, the topic of BF has been discussed on one of my fav radio talk shows (political/social - not a group of goof-offs doing humor) this a.m.
Naturally, there's lots of snickering about the subject and the playing of the recent 911 call where the drunk guy is describing a BF which was in his yard, bothering his dogs.
So next thing I know some old-timer (can tell by the voice) calls in to the show and say, on air, that Morris of Morris Costumes was the guy behind BF.
I started firing off emails like crazy and cut/paste/linked to a lengthy article which debunks the hoaxers (from that "other" site - sorry!)
Of course, the media folks won't take the time to research the history of BF (pre-white man), because they'd rather chuckle than be ridiculed themselves for even entertaining the thought that something may be out there - which is why I won't send additional info to the radio host.
HOWEVER: I'd love to forward that lengthy research article which was posted here a year or two ago about how a suit could NOT be used for the PG film. I don't know how to find it and it'd be great to repost the entire bit (or email it directly to me).
Any help would be appreciated.
-Mike in NC
This may be the article Mike...by Monster Hunter
The info I'm looking for was posted on this message board maybe a year ago (?) as a 3, or 4, or 5-part series of posts which went into all the technical details of creating a costume for movies back in the 60's and how anything looking like Patty could not have been created at that time.
I wish I'd copied/pasted it into a Word document, but . . . . .
Anyone remember it or how or how it can be retrieved?
-Mike in NC
No big deal Mike...by Monster Hunter
Let them have their fun but if and when a corpse is brought in we'll have ours...LOL...of course all these so called skeptics will jump on the band wagon claiming they knew all along there was a Monster in the woods somewhere...
Thanks for the link. I'll check it out tonight to see if that's what I was looking for (the server here at work doesn't like the creditentials of BFE so I can't view the page right now). IF it's not what I was looking for, I'll try to give you a more detailed description of the article. I'll let you know either way.
Oh, yeah...... The hunter will be the fellow who took the thermal video of a BF taking a candy bar and he'll be joined by Animal Planet.
One funny thing that a caller to the show mentioned was that the hunter and AP are probably scouting locations where they can film and stomp around so they'll be sure not to get shot themselves - LOL
I also look forward to watching the nay-sayers force down mouthfuls of crow when final proof of BF comes to light.
It is easy for armchair experts to make fun of what they do not understand.
I have been dealing with skepticism my entire life yet, I know what I know,and no one can convince me otherwise.
I think it is noble that you are taking up the cause for the truth however they will always remain fearful and negative about subjects they do not understand.
....and thanks for the support.
I've been through all the history and arguments before with friends and watched them look at me as if I had two heads - lol.
I don't expect anyone to BELIEVE in BF simply because I offer info to them on the subject. I only HOPE that people will - at the very, very least - open their minds to the POSSIBILITY of things not-yet-discovered existing somewhere out there.
But hearing some old fart call in and declare that BF was a hoax because Morris made a costume ***and get this*** - the old fart couldn't even come up with the names: PG, Patty, Bluff Creek, etc. when asked what he was specifically talking about vis-a-vis Morris' claims!
I tried to call the station to call the guy out - but it was the bottom of the hour and the producer wasn't answering the phones.....and they moved on to another topic after that.
Yep, I get pretty hopped up when people step on Patty's toes
-Mike in NC
Am sending this in case you see it before you see any mod emails.
Morris will be on air sometime this morning on talk radio, 1110 WBT (AM).
Keith Larson is the talk host - his producer/call screener can be reached at 704-570-1110.
I resent an email with additional info - but I don't think I could hold my own on the radio to debate Morris. If MH or someone can call in and (if needed) leave a call-back number for Keith, perhaps they could get you on the air at the same time as Morris?
-Mike in NC
The same radio host who rakes the local newspaper and local/state/national politicians over the coals over the slightest inconsistency......just sat there and yukk'd along with Morris.
When asked whom his witnesses were, Morris chuckled and said, "My wife" - which got a lame, "Oh, come on! ha, ha" from the show's host (Keith).
Morris then said all native BF stories are just to keep the kids in line (like the bogeyman).
It was a complete waste of time and not a single point or bit of info I'd emailed over two days was mentioned in any way.
-Mike in NC
Most of these radio hosts...by Monster Hunter
Have little to no idea about the subject so if you don't understand then make it a joke...they're not real skeptics....they're ignorant...
usually based on true experiences. Native Americans have been dealing with these critters for a long time; certainly longer than any European descended settler. I think they know of what they speak! Just because it's a legend doesn't mean that there's no true behind it...
All the dumpsters around here looks like that.
I do and use to do some driving in rural areas...by Monster Hunter
the only time I've seen garbage around a dumpster is when it was full...people who intentionally throw their sxxx out for someone else to pick up needs a swift kick in their axx...nothing worse then a slob...bet their yard and house is just as nasty...
Rural dumpsters...by Monster Hunter
I found this unusual with all the garbage bags outside of an empty dumpster...dog and cat tracks only but there is a trail back behind the dumpsters leading into a pine thicket that appears to be made by smaller animals...I usually stop and do some looking around at these rural dump areas...
Looks like monsters had their own Superbowl party.LOL.
Monster Impression or?...and FYI...by Monster Hunter
The below demonstrates how an impression can be misleading...I can tell by looking at the impression it didn't come from a Monster...look at what is considered the toe area...looks just like a rabbits butt IMO...the impression was in front of one of the game cameras where the rabbit posed for the picture...
I guess someone could have thrown their garbage...by Monster Hunter
on the ground outside of the dumpster but that usually happens when the dumpsters are full...all of these dumpsters were empty...the dog and cat tracks were to small IMO to jump up in the dumpster and carry the bags out...
is that small critters likes cats or coons get in them then they can't get back out. The trash dumpster over by my son's school one morning trapped 2 coons because someone didn't close the lid.
The one thing that pixxes me off...by Monster Hunter
Is to drive our highways and see trash everywhere...there is one section, highway 84 to I 49 leaving Mansfield, that had trash scattered all along the roadside and fence rolls...5 miles or more of crap everywhere...the good thing about Louisiana...prisoners, at times, police the trash and garbage along side our road ways...bad thing about Louisiana...apparently we have some low class sob's that don't give a sxxx...
I blame the influx of yankees.
When I moved back to the South, it was spotless. As the Charlotte area grew in popularity, and every other license plate was NY, NJ, MA, IL, etc. etc., you could see the roadside garbage start to build up.
(I lived in NY for several years - after dad left the Army - so I know what it's like up there)
The other problem is folks with no garbage pickup service who take their garbage to the local dump. Seems their bags manage to levitate out of the flatbeds of their pickup trucks and burst open on the roadside.
Burns me up!
-Mike in NC
are much shorter and have human being names. I lived in a place with a dumpster that looked just like that one. It seems some people can cart the trash to the dumpster but are incapable of putting the trash IN the dumpster.
One of my contacts called me this morning...by Monster Hunter
She thought she saw a Monster this morning...went in to get the video camera...walked back out and it was gone but she did video a track...she without measuring said it was about the size of the one her neighbor cast...about 18 to 19 inches in length...if this Monster was on the trail I hope it was on we should have some pictures but I'm not holding my breath...
If the roads are in good shape I plan on going down tomorrow morning...the roads here are in pretty good shape with little snow/ice with the temperature around 40 degrees...hopefully this mess will be completely gone by tomorrow...
And and make a sling for that video camera and keep it with her.
She just came home...by Monster Hunter
Was telling her niece goodbye and saw what she thought was a Monster...she keeps the camera with her when she goes outside but has been limited because of the cold...
She had the camera when she walked out to where she thought she saw a Monster...78 years young and taking to the Monsters...LOL...I know grown men that wouldn't have done that...
My son and daughter-in-law were on my porch last night around 10 and they heard heavy foot steps outside my fenced in yard,And the dogs were barking at this time.They came in and got a flashlight and went back out,but every time they would shine it out there it quit.We went out today and walked back there,between the wet conditions and leaves and pine straw we could see anything.Besides we have no clue what we are looking for,lol.Don't know if it was anything or not.There was no sounds other than heavy walking sounds.
Make sure and document dates, times etc...by Monster Hunter

If you recieve anything from me on FaceBook...by Monster Hunter
Delete it...some one has gotten into my account and is sending out a virus...what I suspect as a virus was sent to me from a friend who lives in S'port and I know he wouldn't have sent anything out so someone must have tagged his account as well...
Hard to believe that anyone would want to harm another persons computer...
It's a coding that attacks your email contact lists, which sends the viral coding
to everyone listed. It affects thousands on the useless waste of time I call Facebook.
Just return it to the sender which generally stops the process. But then you're email contact
list is affected. It is more of a nuisance than it is harmful to the computer, but remember
foreign countries are on Facebook and hackers are world wide...trust only private messages
on Facebook. Malicious Malware and Trojans have been distributed through Facebook on occasion but not on their private message service.
NOT emailing to or from Facebook works for me especially by mobile smart phone.
Good advice...by Monster Hunter
The only time I visit Face Book is when someone sends me something but apparently that's to much...I just ran my anti-virus without having any trojans or some type of virus...I would like to know who sends out these trojans and virus's so I could bend by shot gun barrel over their head...
got an odd facebook message from you
Somebody tapped my face book Doc...by Monster Hunter
Hope it didn't cause any problems...
Been on facebook for a long time too. I didn't get anything from you Jim. I've never gotten any viruses from facebook. I just remember the rule, never click on anything you don't know, and never open an attachment! LOL

Ain't much to some but....by Monster Hunter
It's a heap to me...I sincerely hope this will be our last snow fall this year...
how does cold snowy conditions effect BF behavior?
Are they more or less active?
Change their feeding habits,etc.?
We really get little snow fall here LoneWolf...by Monster Hunter
But I have gone to MC after and during every snow fall without finding any sign or hearing any thing unusual...Jake and I went down after a dusting, several weeks back, where we had several unusual pictures and found ten to fifteen impressions leaving the area where the camera was hanging and returning back north towards the creek and what I suspected as a bedding area...
When Jake gets in today we might go down for a while to look around and check our cameras...depends on being able to drive the roads...we don't have any equipment to maintain the roads here so most folks with good sense stay in doors...
One of the clearer impressions we saw...
go back to that "special" spot that we have talked about and do a little more investigating......
Where we saw the impressions...by Monster Hunter
are in the same section of woods but west of where you and I discussed...he and I need to spend some more time in that area but it is thick with briar's and brush...we might hit that area today and look around a bit...I hate bleeding in any type of weather but cold weather with briar's ain't much fun...
One thing I've noticed when we get fairly deep in this area...there are few critters and birds and something Jake told me last time we walked where we saw the impressions...Jake and one of his buddies were walking looking for deer sign when his buddy thought he saw or did see a Monster...scared him bad enough he had to leave this area...
His friends he has taken down at night have heard some strange calls and sounds and refuse to go with him after dark...LOL...I think Jake does this for a laugh...
According to the weather channel...by Monster Hunter
High 40's tomorrow and high 50's Sunday...so this little snow and ice we have here will be gone...doesn't hurt my feelings a bit...
I have found here in Georgia and Alabama that weather does not affect their movements. They get out and about just the same as an average person.
I consider myself an average person Jeff...by Monster Hunter
during the cold weather I stay or try to stay inside...LOL...I've snooped around for years after some snow fall here without finding any sign of movement...of course our snow only lasts a few days...with any luck and warmer temperatures this ice/snow will be gone by Sunday...
Two amazing You Tubes taken in Israel...by Monster Hunter
Thanks to a friend for sending them my way...
And another by MK Davis...by Monster Hunter
I took this video on February 1st of this year in a field near Satartia Ms. The sight was something to behold.
I believe strongly that we are living in the days/years before the return of Jesus Christ to the earth. So let me court ridicule by saying that I believe it truly is the "end of the age." But not the end of the world. Earth will not disappear as has been depicted by silly pronostications and in movies such as 2012. The Mayans never said the earth was destroyed; they said the age (katume?) would end. Their calendar did not go any farther than December 21, 2012 (as far as we know) because Spain invaded the Mayan Kingdom.
The veil between the natural and supernatural worlds has become very thin and will grow thinner still as we get closer to R-day for believers. Stranger things than this will be seen in the heavens; mark my word. The Bible predicted all of the events were are now eye-witnessing. Check it out; but let not your hearts be troubled IF you do.
what's going on in Egypt is biblical?
I kind of think it is related, but I want other opinions.
In Revelations it is said that there will be wars and unrest in the middle east and the anti christ will come first as a peace maker and seemingly be a "good guy", only to engage Jesus in the battle of Armageddon.
What do you think?
Egypt was one Islamic country that was not banging sabres against Israel. Sit back and watch all of that change if Murbarak goes. The bible predicted that just before Ezekiel's war (read Ezekiel 38 or John Hagee's book "Jerusalem Countdown") Israel would be surrounded by her enemies. That surrounding by enemies is almost complete. Ezekiel's war is NOT the Battle of Armageddon mentioned in Revelation; however, it is a battle predicted for the days just before/after the rapture of Christian believers. Israel will win Ezekiel's war and because of a peace treaty brokered by a charismatic leader who later turns out to be Anti-Christ, their land will be like "unwalled cities." Then the last 3 and a half years of the Tribulation will see things really heat up with "good guy" Anti-Christ turning into public enemy #1 and breaking the peace treaty with Israel. It's all predicted in the bible, especially in Matthew 24 and Revelation 6-19. BUT the story of Israel has a happy ending!
Jesus Christ will return to stop Anti-Christ and his invaders...
That's my testimony and what I believe. I'm not discouraged or frightened because I know "redemption is drawing near."
......are things really "happening" or, due to the speed at which information is recorded (on handheld telephones - which was silly sci-fi when Star Trek came out!) and then distributed world-wide within minutes, even seconds (and real-time!) are we simply exposed to more things all at once? Too Much Information!
If we were still living in a pre-telegraph - and even if all these things were happening around the globe (mysterious lights, bird/fish die-offs, massive flooding, etc.).......the only thing we'd be noticing is that, "It's an awfully hard winter, Martha".
The world has been "coming to an end" ever since papyrus was invented - lol
IF and WHEN something happens.....it'll happen - and that's that.
One should always be preparing their soul for the hereafter (whatever one's beliefs are) because we could get by a cement truck by sunset 4.5 weeks from now - for all we know.
The only thing we can do otherwise (in my opinion) is insist that world leaders stop acting like brats and treat the people under their care with compassion and dignity. Then, demand that people treat their neighbors - from next door, to the other side of the world - with kindness.
(okay, let the laughter begin - like THAT will ever happen)
Why worry about the inevitable - regardless of what our own, individual, inevitability will be?
-Mike in NC
what do you make of those verses in Revelation, written by John around 90 A.D. that mentioned the death of two witnesses, whose dead bodies lay in the streets of Jerusalem and "the whole world saw those dead bodies laying there for three days"? The whole world did not have the capacity in John's day of seeing anything...so knowledge has increased, Israel is in more trouble than you can shake a stick at and the U.S. doesn't seem to care, we have cell phones, planes, weird weather patterns (there IS NO global warming), earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. We've always had these things BUT not all of them AT the SAME time.
Still think the clock is winding down...but do NOT think the earth will melt away or be destroyed. Although there is an asteroid predicted to hit us around 2032...or earlier.
I'm not a biblical scholar, but will admit that there are interesting things in Revelations which are worth contemplation.
One Sunday morning preacher had a multi-part series re: Revelations (I happened upon his sermon while flipping channels and ended up tuning in for a few weeks) and some things seem to click here and there (like that Mog and Agog stuff being Russia and Iran, etc. going after Israel) - as Russian/Iran are working together nowadays for some reason.
Between Revelations, the Mayan calendar, Nostradamus, that Gacy(?) fellow (I'm still waiting for the "library" under the Sphinx to be discovered - per his premonition).......one's head can pop off at the visions, and countdowns, to doom and gloom.
I just wish all those premonitions weren't so darn vague and convoluted (yes, they had no idea what a main battle tank or a water/ice-dispensing refrigerator is.....nor how to describe/understand them)......but, sheesh! LOL
And why wait until 2023 for an apocolyptic asteriod? Apophis (sp?) is supposed to come within 18,000 miles of Earth this Easter! - a virtual bullseye in this vast universe - with some suggesting that orbiting satellites might be affected by it.
Yep, trouble could be right around the corner.
-Mike in NC
This type phenomenon can be faked by using more than one method. And, it's not hard to do, even with the "multiple synchronized" sightings. It's been done before. I'ts been awhile, and I'll have to do some digging for the documentation. Also, another giveaway here is the absence of sound. You may be able to defy gravity, and you may even have mastered silent propulsion, but your craft can't move through the atmosphere at that speed without making noise trying to displace air. (i.e. a sonic boom)
I have personally seen, along with another witness, during broad daylight,a black ball shaped object cover the entire horizon in about 3 seconds,come to a complete stop, then divide into 2 smaller white objects, and then follow a small Lear jet.
This object was silent, and based on the speed must have been traveling at supersonic speeds, but was totally silent.
No sonic boom or sound of any kind. I agree with what you say in theory, however I have witnessed an object do this silently.
Many sightings include the observation that the object(s) accelerate at incredible speed and disappear - yet no mention is made of sonic booms. In fact, almost all encounters mention that the object is silent.
People actually report the lack of sounds during sightings because the witnesses EXPECT to hear something. Yet, there are no engine sounds. No sonic booms. Nothing - except perhaps a humming sound if the object is close enough.
The fact that these objects appear to move in ways not achievable by even the most modern aircraft designs (re: acceleration - both vertically and horizontally- , sudden right-angle turns, joining/separating from other objects, etc. etc.) means that we probably need to accept the fact that our understanding of physics is as limited to us in the year 2011, as the concept of manned space flight was to people in medieval times.
When you think about it, these objects need to cross billlllions, and billllions of miles in mere seconds/minutes/days/months/etc. - or hop through worm-holes, dimensions, what have you - just to get to/from earth in a reasonable amount of time.
Therefore, I think it's unrealistic to disconnect the unbelievable abilities of these vehicles and their ability to do a "few other little things" which we do not have the ability to comprehend.
Just a few musings......
-Mike in NC
Moving through space is one thing, but moving at high speeds through atmosphere is another. Nothing with any physical mass moves faster through the atmosphere than a falling meteorite. And, they make quite a bit of noise.
And, there have indeed been sightings where the craft was observed making noises related to atmospheric displacement and sonic booms and they were definitely not airplanes. These are the ones that I find interesting.
Here is some more regarding the videos:
Well, I DVRed this two hour program hoping to hear NEW evidence, although the good doctor was one of the "experts" whose opinion was solicited. At least the documentary did not include that other "expert" whose face is seen often on this kind of program. As far as I'm concerned, this program presented only one new idea that made sense to me--that Sasquatch/Bigfoot is a descendant of a Neanderthal-type human. That dove-tailed nicely IMHO with the news release produced by M.K. several years back that caused LC to accuse him falsely of racism. You must all remember those stupid allegations. I'm sure M.K. would prefer to forget that painful episode, so forgive me for bringing it to the fore. That Bigfoot/Sasquatch may have descended from a type of ancient human was interesting...but there was so much about this program that WASN'T interesting or new.
Some eye-witness accounts filmed for "Monsterquest" were rehashed, including one about a BC man who saw a Sasquatch hunkered down beside a river. In the "Monsterquest" version, the man stated he probably saw a Sasquatch. In this Bigfoot documentary, he claimed it was a wildman-type creature; in other words it looked like a human being wearing furs. After hearing his "new" version, I thought I hadn't heard correctly; for I remembered he had previously used the word Sasquatch and now he was saying Wildman.
Every time the good doctor talked, I muted the sound, so I didn't hear clearly most of what he said but I think the mid-tarsal break was discussed because he was holding a giant foot casting while he talked. What was precious to me was the strange look that appeared on two scientists' faces while Meldrum commented on that track casting. IMO, the look "said" that they found his statements odd. One scientist I truly respected was the primate behavior expert whose first name was Ian. Sorry, CRS prevents me from recalling his last name without viewing the documentary again. His statements about apes--the scientists seemed determined to make the Sas an ape--were based on field knowledge of primate behavior and they made perfect sense to ignorant me. During one scene, he discovered a strange uprooted tree structure in a forest and talked about the strength required to uproot and move bamboo or small trees into such a formation. But he went one step farther; he explained why apes might do such a thing. In the wild, apes make bamboo structures to tell other apes that it's their land--so stay off.
So,IMHO Bigfoot: New Evidence producers could have saved money by condensing their "new" evidence into one hour. New eye-witness accounts were acted out well and the computer generated Sasquatch was very realistic. I was impressed with the historical record presented but I was under the impression that Mr and Mrs. Chapman were native people. In this program, Mrs. Chapman, her husband and two of their 10 (I think they had 10) children were all Caucasian not Native Americans. And they told only half of the Chapman tale. To anyone who has has done research into native legends and stories, this was a slap in the face because they changed the historical record. One does wonder how the Bauman story, if re-enacted in this documentary, might have been changed too.
It was a long two hour program, allieviated in some parts by the eye-witness re-enactments and one or two new ideas.
Good report RR...by Monster Hunter
I really don't think anything discussed hasn't been thought of or hashed and rehashed many times by us amateur researchers...with their collective educational backgrounds I think interested people will come to understand there was not anything mentioned that was definitive...
Programs like this are for entertainment purposes...
I watched the show yesterday, I thought most of it was ok the parts that bored me was when they tried to make BF a Neanderthal.
They also lost me when they tried to present all of the B.C. sightings on Native Shaman in training wearing animal furs..........
I also liked the computer generated Squatch.
Keep the thorough reviews coming Ruby, good job!
my son and i have been discussing the show, the scientist and their theories as well as some of the situations that they talked about.
i really didn't want to write anything about it in detail until i had a chance to think about it all.
1- i think the scientists were probably the best bunch they have had on anytype of Bigfoot/Monkee show. the two Primatologists were honest in their thnking and open minded.
2- Meldrum, well- he is justwho he is, Meldrum.
3-lets talk about the Indians. first- this was the first show to my knowledge that anyone has ever broached the subject of these primates being an "indian" group. sure MK brought this to our attention in some fashion a year ago.
4- unknown hominids. i have an open mind. this is the first show that i can remember that went into detail of possibilities.
5- double speak, i get sick of the double speak. they use the PNW as the Gold Standard of Bigfootery, based on long term history and the Native America Co-Existance. well, every tribe in North America and Canada has a history of interaction with these creatures.
6- double speak again, the PNW is the only place in N.A. that has the capability of sustaining these creatures. - the Midwest and South feed the world? not only do you have agriculture, but you also have some of the greatest populations of game and fish in N.A. but, in the next section it is mentioned that the possibility of the torso length allows for a greater length in digestive cavity which would allow for more complete digestion on minimal food sources.
7-they seem to pick and choose at will to meet their own scientific conclusions. nothing is more chosen than the discussion of the Patterson Film. when the film is discussed, rather than discuss and critique the film, they bring up their critique of Patterson personally, making mo mention of the many things we have discussed from our own observations- many of which are brought to our attention by MK.
the scientists are limiting themselves in their study by the PNW fixation. i'd welcome either of the Primatologists to Oklahoma anyday. I believe they would be open to what we have found in the South.
corect me if i am wrong, didn't Mrs. Chapman cover the childrens head to avoid them looking at it, due to the Native belief that children who looked at them died shortly after and didn't she have children die later at young ages?
my point exactly; she didn't want her children looking the creature in the eye or the creature clearly seeing her children. Native American family NOT White.
there were 3 or 4 children, the family was Native American, and everyone eventually later died from drowning and/or sickness. The Indians believed if you were to look upon such a beast that you would have bad luck come to you.
When the narrator mentioned the Myakka skunkape(Sarasota)he was correct about the lady who took the pictures but he said the creature had been getting in her garden...her letter stated to the sheriff's dept that it had been coming up to the house and stealing apples she had set outside.
When I see a show like this on TV it just makes me feel that it's made for the percentage of the American public that are not knowledgeable or are narrow-minded on Bigfoot and Sasquatch...that they are still out there and more so than they know. But it seems by keeping the PNW creatures in reference it is more familiar with the percentage of Americans that believe in the creatures because of the Patterson film. It's amazing how many people I have talked to that didn't know that Bigfoot creatures are in every state except Hawaii(I have always read that Hawaii didn't have them so if I'm wrong please somebody correct me). Just my thought on the show.
Chapman report...by Monster Hunter
Scroll down it's under the Roe report...
Bobbie Shorts web site...
I was looking forward to the program after hearing about it here on this forum. But we have not been getting much sleep because our six month old baby likes to stay up late hooting with the owls. Inevitably, both my wife and I fell asleep half way through the program.
We DVR'd it, so I will watch it again when I get the chance. However, I do remember that they were talking about MR. Patterson's need for money as a potential reason for hoaxing the film, but they made no mention of Mr. Gimlin. I know that I have been out of the loop for a while but, did Mr. Gimlin get voted off the island? Is the new story that Mr. Patterson was out there by himself or without a credible witness? I will refrain from more comments until I watch the whole program.
I did read the Roe and Chapman reports from the link that Jim provided. It was interesting to read how the behavior differed from one report to the other. Roe experienced a sasquatch that thought it was alone and did not want anything to do with Roe. Maybe it was due to it being female and ofcourse shy. The other sasquatch went out of its way to come down to the Chapman house and make himself at home. This I will attribute to it being male. Like a rude brother-in-law.
What I found very intereting though was that Ms. Chapman knew the survival "rules" of coexisting with these creatures. And even knew that she had to hide her children to protect them from the sasquatch. That tells me that the survival rules were compiled over many different encounters with these creatures. And many of the encounters involved physical contact.
These are totally weird!
Check this out.
Interesting to say the least...by Monster Hunter
But what happened to part II...the Foster family on Vacation?...
and in most, but not all cases, when one slows the film down you see flying insects. Then there are those few cases that defy explanation.
BTW...isn't J Mike having...by Monster Hunter
someone connected to this rod phenomenon on his program soon?...
After watching all the segments of this video I would say they're insects......EXCEPT........
I've never seen a uniformly-even, and uniformly lit and dense "blur" like those before. There's no "see-through" at the back-end of the objects like one would associate with a blurry object.
Basically, what I'm saying is that the back end is as sharply defined as the front end.
The historical bits (glyphs and town sighting) are interesting, but there's no way to 100% connect those to this particular phenomenon.
Here are the big questions for me.
-If these are biological.......how do they not crash into something or, over the course of time, succumb to heat/cold/drought/disease/etc. and not leave physical evidence of their existence?
-If these are mechanical.......how do they not crash into something, or fail mechanically, and leave evidence of their existence?
-How can some be a few inches long, and others (possibly) be several feet or several dozen feet long. If they grow (biologicals), what do they eat? If they're mechanical, they'd just have to be different sized models of the same design.
-If biological....when and where do they rest?
-If biological....where are they in the fossil record?
-If mechanical....what is their energy source?
-If mechanical....where do they go for repairs?
-These things, despite their speed, seem to not make any audible noise (???)
Also, it seems terribly risky for an alien intelligence (if these are some sort of recon devices) to just flitter right in front of our noses (so to speak).
So these are either:
-A known species of insect (possible) but science has no clue - or has yet to determine - what species it is and has not yet observed it in flight.
-An unknown species of insect (possible, as new ones are found every year) but they appear around the world and they've never died and left remains to be found (improbable).
-Alien technology under control (possible?) but used recklessly
-A species not native to earth (visiting earth, but existing/thriving outside our atmosphere) but leaving no evidence while on earth (improbable).
-An alien technology or species which can travel through time/space/dimension and, therefore, is - but really isn't here - at the same time. Examples: If it "dies" or mechanically fails, it just blinks out and manifests completely in its own plane (That's so far "out there" concerning human knowledge of physics that I can't say if that's possible or impossible)
All I would say is that we, in our lifetimes, have seen enough video of fast-moving object (trains, jets, rockets, people/animals running right in front of a camera) to know what a blurry object looks like.
I don't see a blur. I see a fast-moving, but uniformly solid object, moving in ways - and at speeds - not recognizable to me.
Oddly enough, some of the items listed above could relate to BF !!! LOL
Yet another head-scratching mystery to drive someone to distraction.

Pictures by Mississippi Squatcher...by Monster Hunter
Thanks for sending them for us to have a look...
Nice cast of a good track...
I do understand taking pictures of tracks in leafs...a picture just doesn't do justice...BTW...the impression is approximately 18 inches in length...that's a lot of Monster...about a 9 footer with a 4 1/2 foot stride...
Thanks for helping me with the pics. The cast is actually from East Texas. The Cool thing about it is before we could cast it a dof stepped in the track so it is cast as well lol.. the dog was a 1/2 german shepard 1/2 lab mix if that helps with scale.
We appreciate you sharing MS Squatcher...by Monster Hunter
I know our members thank you as well...it is always an interest IMO to have researchers in the field willing to freely share what they discover...we need more folks like you out beating the bushes and trails...

Thanks to a friend for sending this to share....
Glad to see them protected, this just made my day.
Thank You for the post!!!
It is an amazing video...by Monster Hunter
Like you I'm glad they are protected...I know there is not anyway I could pull the trigger...
monster hunter, lets see the pic of bigfoot you have, the one the lady took.
or does it even exist...i suspect we will never see it and it was just an attention getter on your part
Oh I have it...by Monster Hunter
More then several have seen it...I'm waiting on the negatives to be reproduced so we won't have axxholes like you popping off...
BTW,,,grow some baxxx...by Monster Hunter
Use your name or a known alias...no one likes a chicken sxxx...

Wait patiently and ask politely.
Don't act like a jerk!
Think what you want.by SAsquatcher
Most of us here have a few thoughts as well concerning you.
Funny how that works huh?
Don't you know that you can draw more bees with honey than vinegar.
The photos are being examined now so you'll have to be a good little boy and wait for the final results like the rest of us.
You need to adjust your attitude to a more humble setting!
Oh...He called us Rednecks...Those are...by Monster Hunter
Fighting words...learn to spell jackaxx...and I'll certainly consider your "i dont care if the pic is posted here or not"...
Now, run along and go play with the children...
just because a spoiled brat moron like you doesn't get his way the picture must not exist and "proves your thoughts"... Guess what a$$hat, I've seen the pics and someone with your third grade mentality could not possibly understand the pics anyway.
Maybe you should try your kindergarten reverse psychology antics elsewhere.
You are sucking up precious bandwidth that the adults could be using.......
Just another Moron with a computer LoneWolf...by Monster Hunter
Every now and then we have a moron post...why anyone would make an idiotic post is beyond me...if I didn't like a forum I certainly wouldn't post regardless of personal beliefs showing the world how immature I was...
And now I'm glad you haven't,,,Jerk!
Jim, it just goes to show you the absolute idiocy of some folks!
He thinks he (or she) can get you to do what they want by saying you don't have anything, I think they know damn well that you have something and they want to see it but they are going about it the TOTALLY wrong way!
Don't let em get ya, show what you want to who you want when you want.
In fact it is well within your rights to only email what you wish to GCBRO members only and not even put it on the message board!
Some folks need to grasp the concept of grace, doing things out of the goodness of your heart!
Jim puts these pics up as a courtesy, not an obligation!
Let me tell you something "Anonymous" or in my words COBARDE,,"look it up" if you think you are gonna railroad Jim Lansdale, you've got another think coming!
You gutless,nutless keyboard warrior its jerks like you that cause people to distrust anything about BF research.
Someone with your limited mental capacity could not possibly understand or appreciate the picture.
Why don't you do us all a favor and go find yourself a unicorn research site to hang out in, I'm sure those folks would appreciate you..............
Don't give them a bad name!
I was hoping Al Gore could start selling shares in my Unicorn Ranches (think Alpaca's gone wild!) after his global warming thing dies off due to an ice age.
The Western Unicorn Research Organization of America. Do they look for rainbow colored scat in sci-fi conventions? Priceless.
Why should he show you? You didn't even give your name!
Just like lone wolf said.It is people like you that put the word distrust in bf research.Monster Hunter is a big man and can defend himself, But why are you so afraid to post your name.If your gonna attack someone at least use your name not anonymous.Attention getting is not what this hobby is about,Unless of coarse you are from another research group.You are the attention getter and a coward at that.Keep hiding behind that keyboard and stroking your ego.
I may just do that...by Monster Hunter
After the negatives are finished send the pictures out to our forum members and GCBRO family only...people need to understand obligation....none of us doing research/investigation are obligated to share our findings with anyone...we do so out of courtesy and as a tool to help others interested to possibly learn from some of our experiences...people are interested in seeing a Monster...I would like to share what I have but refuse to bow to any pressure from a chickensxxx and to a known liar and drunk from TX...
Sitting behind your computer and more or less demanding or to insinuate I'm lying is a cowards way which will not get you anything from me...if I didn't have what I said I had I wouldn't mention it at all...
I have seen the picture and I agree I think you should send it as an e-mail to members of YOUR choosing instead of entertaining jerks like anonoa$$clown.
BTW for the rest of you folks, when you see the pic I think you will find it very interesting.......
I have been an avid/daily reader of your forum for over 6 years and have enjoyed and learned a great deal. I also would like to say that I have a great deal of respect for all of you who frequenty post. I can't say that I would have alot to add due to the inactivity in my area and that is why I have not posted on a frequent basis. I do however enjoy the outdoors and keep a watchful eye during deer season. You guys keep up the good work. I feel comfortable in that if I ever need assistance in a sighting situation, I would not hesitate to contact a number of you. Thanks for being real and protecting our (believers) view point.
Lets see ANYTHING that YOU have done.
Oh that's right, we wouldn't know if it is your work or not because you are too chicken s**t to post your name!

Found a line of tracks to a place that I have been leaving food (apples and plums and such). The tracks were in line and 4.5 step length. It wasn't worth casting because it was in leaves, I have a couple of pics but they don't do it justice. I have gotten two seperate episodes of wood knocks? Teeth knocks? or stone clacks. They are they exact same sound so I doubt it was tree knocks. Both times were in response to me whistling.
I'll post the pics if I can figure out how too. Any thoughts on the noise. Same sound is it teeth or jaw poppong maybe hand clapping. both episodes are on video as well. Just looking for opinions.

Open up a Photo Bucket account...simple and easy...just remember to resize the pictures with paint or other program...
We are all interested in what you have to share...BTW...the clicking sound...could be made by teeth or by mouth...I know what I heard wasn't made by rocks since there are none here...was the clicking repetitious or just a few clicks?...
As with most of you I tend to watch anything BF on TV.
I'm sure I have seen every show on thee subject, and I have observed many here get all twisted out of shape after watching these shows.
So for what it's worth I would like to offer my opinion on a few subjects, and welcome all comments both positive or negative for further discussion.
Most BF shows are filmed and edited for entertainment value and little else. A crew goes to a location, sometimes only for a day or two, and seldom comes up with any valuable evidence.
Some of their methods or THEORIES may have some merit, but I find most of these "researchers" to be nothing more than weekend tour guides.
As far as them favoring the PNW I think that due to the fact that most of the publicity from Bluff Creek may have a lot to do with this. Growing up the only mention I ever heard of a Southern BF was the Boggy Creek movie which intrigued me and scared me as well. I know that the South has a long history of BF activity but I think most people are just getting the message that the South has as much activity as the PNW. I have seen many BF shows that take place in the South so I think that trend is now reversing. I do not see why some get angry about PNW research, in my opinion I don't care where a body comes from as long as someone gets one to study.
Meldrum: I know a lot of people here hate Meldrum due to the fact that he rejects three towed tracks. I agree he is making a huge error in his thinking. I trust Jim Lansdale and he has posted pictures of many three towed tracks as have many others. That is good enough for me. Meldrum and anyone else that rejects them is foolish.
With that said, I like some of what Meldrum does to try and add some scientific legitimacy to BF research. I think he is sincere in his quest to find the truth even though his research is flawed in some respects. I think overall he adds to the process of research, of course your opinions may vary from mine.....
Bigfoot Experts: I would like someone to introduce me to the man or group who are BF experts.
Guess what, there are none! There are many people in this field that I respect, many of which are part of the GCBRO and regular posters here. However, at this point in time people are making their best GUESS based on facts and evidence. My opinion is to keep and open mind tempered with skepticism and common sense.
I'm anxious to hear what the rest of you think!
First of all I think the word "hate" is pretty strong. I don't think anyone hear hates anyone. Don't forget, most of these researchers don't compare notes and each may have info. the other doesn't. Everyone has an opinion, some based on experience, and it's the researchers who have respect and who are dedicated to the subject that we should problem listen to the most. At this point, no one who has a rep of being honest and scientific is really wrong.
i like how they pick and choose, and contradict themselves.
i am amazed at the status of the PNW as the "Sas Heaven" due to its history going back to the tribes. but they discount the tribes all over America and Canada and their histories.
you can't have it both ways?
there are no experts. some are more knowledgable than others. some are more willing to discuss their findings. some speak to anyone that will listen, others keep their cards close.
they should follow up on the historical first nation sightings of the South.
I for one think the more diverse places you search the more varied info you will discover.
Like I said I personally don't care where they get a body to study, I just want to see it.
And it was from Monster Central that we got the first blood sample so what does that tell ya!
We are pro discovery, not about just going on and on never producing hard evidence!
Sure we post up photos and reports and sound recordings etc, etc, but we (The GCBRO) are out to undeniably and irrefutably leaving no doubt or guess work, PROVE these animals existence!
That is not gonna happen from a scat or hair sample or even plaster footprints!
It's gonna have to be a body!
Anything else is just keeping stories going, sure those things help to establish that the animals are in the area, but the purpose of that should be to find and harvest the sucker.
A first for me...by Monster Hunter
Just an Opinion....where these Monsters are you'll find few if any snakes...the lady told me since she noticed the Monsters being around she hasn't seen copper heads and moccasins as usual...I do know at MC when it was hot several years back a person would see few if any snakes...
If the monsters know how to catch them just right (And these monsters have demonstrated time and again that they didn't just fall off the turnip truck!) then that would be a good food source.
Meat is protein and protein is warmth and energy!
Yeah...maybe so but...by Monster Hunter
in all my stumbling around I haven't found a complete snake skeleton...
I've lived here for twenty years... One of the first things I noticed was a lack of poisonous snakes which is odd for this country... Since I have lived here I've killed two Copperheads,one Cottonmouth and one Timber Rattler... Should kill 5 times that in one summer..
I started noticing in other areas of activity the lack of poison snakes as well. I see a few Chicken Snakes around from time to time, but hardly ever a poison snake. Maybe the Monsters eat them? Or maybe they just don't like to get snakebites either?
we rarely see a copperhead or any type of rattler on our place. I can count on 1 hand how many i have seen down there. i have never seen a skeleton in the wild.
i did see one of the biggest baddest snakes i have ever seen down there. i think it was an indigo black, it was LONG and big bodied. damn thing looked like a king cobra.
Has anybody considered they might just club them to death to protect and prevent their young from stumbling across one. I would imagine a smallish BF would be much more susceptible to snake poison's effects then an adult much as a human child would.
I only thought of this because I don't fart around with poisonous snakes around my property. I run across them in the woods and I leave them alone. In my yard however and they turn into buzzard food.
Just a thought to pass on.
i have never worked on a venimous snake bite on a child. about 14 years old is the youngest i have ever personally worked on. i'd say 90% are over the age of 50- working in flower beds, gardens or carports and drive ways out of maybe 30-40 historical bites.
if they are younger than 50, alcohol is usually involved.
when i was in college, we got most of our venom stock from above ground pools. shoot some gasoline under the pool and all kinds of slithering critters will scatter out.

anytning about monsters turning on outside water hoses/faucets????
Personally...no I haven't...by Monster Hunter
But knowing where you are it wouldn't surprise me...
They haven't turned the water on, but lately they have been unscrewing my hose at the kennel.. I went 3 years with that same hose out there and not once did I ever have to tighten it back up. Lately I can tighten it down hard when I finish and the next day it's unscrewed from the faucet again...
Sarmiento and Meldrum don't know what they are talking about!
Actually I already knew that but it really got set in concrete today.
Meldrum claims there are not any...by Monster Hunter
three toed Monsters...good for him...how ridiculas...a three toed Monster...oh wait...I've seen tracks of three toed Monsters and may have a picture of a Monster with three toes...all I can see are three...
You can't do that.
You find out what the monsters do and adjust accordingly!
Tulklo said he didn't believe in the 3 toed monster either which I guess
Was his way of calling you a liar, I remember him saying that in paltalk
You find out what the monsters do.and go from there, and you can't
Compare them to chimps or gorillas either because it is like comparing
Apples and oranges!
When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains however unlikely must be the truth.
Tuklo the make believe Indian or "Buckets of Blood"......by Monster Hunter
would rather tell a lie then the truth...gets down to a nobody that wanted to be a somebody at others expense...he finally lied his way into obscurity...Something I can't figure out...why hoax or lie when it's just as easy to tell the truth?...not anyone holds any one person or group responsible for discovery so there is no need to hoax or lie...
but a little bit about genetic mutations, but I remember studying about them in school, how if a breeding population is too small all types of mutations can occur, with extra or too few toes and fingers being one of the more common mutations in the hominid line. You would think they would know this, what with all of their advanced degrees and all!!! Their pre-conceived notions and close-mindedness are astounding!
I've seen 3-toed tracks!! Anytime I hear someone say they don't believe any of these creatures have 3 toes, well I just KNOW that they are uneducated in southern bigfoot. I know they do.
for the life of me, i have never understood how Meldrum gets the play he gets.
I guess having a PhD has its benefits.
And the only academic...by Monster Hunter
willing to risk his reputation to his peers....He's right about the creatures existence but so damn wrong on most of his claims...
would fix a lot of his ignorance and correct his myopic view that the majority of Sasquatch/BF sightings are in the PNW. How ludicrous.
leave him at MC for a weekend and let the monsters have fun with him. Maybe he'll even find some of those 3-toed tracks.
But I try to give folks the benefit of the doubt.
He totally blew it!
If Monsterquest wants to do a real deal on Bigfoot, it would be wise to listen to the eyewitnesses rather than these self proclaimed "Experts"!
Like I said, you look at the hard evidence and go from there, you don't try to shove Bigfoot into your little box of preconceived notions.
As Jim can attest to, when you think that you have these monsters figured out, they go and do something that makes you stop and scratch your head.
A 2-hour special 9:00 eastern time(8:00 central). It's called Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide. I've got it ready to go for my DVR.
Btw...I noticed there are a couple Bigfoot type creature programs on Monsterquest for later this afternoon in case you haven't seen them.
same ole..for the most part.
disregarded 90% of America- the same PNW monopoly on Monkees. i hope the first specimen is shot and displayed in Florida, just for spite.
new scientists though.
of course, it was complete with Meldrum and a Photographers vest. it was a 2 drink show.
very valid points were brought up for those with an open mind. they don't seem to think that these critters get very much taller than 6.5-7 ft.
Ha ,I think not. Didn't even talk about Texas,Oklahoma or Louisiana.
They didn't even have the cahoonies to mention yous guys (or we's guys). And yous guys know a heck of a lot more than say "The Scientists".
but the Primate guy, Dr. Ian was open-minded and presented some interesting ideas about tree structures. I didn't even listen to what they said about the Patterson film after that fellow talked about Patterson's need for the "money shot." I did notice that the truth about John Green's presence along with tracker dogs (which was suggested as the NEW way to hunt Sasquatch-LOL) was not even suggested on this program. Once again it was just ole Bob and pal Roger. BUT we know the truth of it, don't we?
Even though the south had an equal amount of sightings reported, they seemed to be hell bent on the PNW! Maybe its easier to research those areas. Nothing really new!
Now we have to get a body from the US, Russia,Australia,New Zealand,,and so on,,lol.
I just think we need to get one to prove their existence and go from there.
It wasn't really a definitive guide; it presented some new evidence, new eye-witness accounts but changed other eye-witness accounts, like the Chapman story. I found it a very long watch...
watching a MonsterQuest Marathon.
we have got to have an "Official" MonsterQuest Drinking Game.
rules could be:
anything that shows Meldrum
anyone wearing an Indiana Jones Hat
anyone wearing a "shoot me first" Photographers vest
anything that shows Coleman
any mention or play of the "Ohio Sounds"
we did get to see the Ouchita/Red River outing. Kudo's for horses and big handguns. they make anything "cooler".
could Dr. Briggs Hall be one of the more reputable investigators out there with his wild animal/large animal veterinarian credentials?
the Big a$$ dino lizard in Australia was interesting.
You pretty much summed it for me woodswatcher...by Monster Hunter
Kind of makes my skin crawl as well...
I'm curious, what leads people to hoax? Is it simply the thrill or do they have some notion they can make a buck off it?
Why do people hoax? Your thoughts? Please go into detail...
In their case IMO...by Monster Hunter
Maybe a quick buck, donations, to help support their fictitious research...Using an alias or Bigfoot Ballyhoo creating these alias for monetary support...I think that would be an excellent question to ask not only the men but the owners of Bigfoot Ballyhoo...
Over the years I've noticed what I believe to lead some to hoax...people wanting recognition without regard to consequences...getting caught in their hoax/lies or both...older researchers that haven't accomplished anything "lately" will stoop to hoaxing sometimes...you and MK discovered something similar when doing the Honey Island Monster video...for those unaware...a shoe that had a "Monster" foot attached...
There is another group that comes to mind that uses bits of information with mounds of imagination to defraud interested parties out of expedition money...groups that have no evidence that prey on interested folks imaginations...we have a few that are just out and out bullsxxxxxx looking for a bit of recognition...these people have absolutely nothing going for them in their life so they use the Internet to hopefully become something...
Here's the deal...If you have evidence have the evidence scientifically analyzed/studied in the lab or by professionals qualified to determine the value of the evidence...my belief..it either is evidence or not evidence...we ,the GCBRO, can live with the outcome of any evidence submitted on our behalf one way or another...
They just want attention. Nuff said.
is he just that damn good in the forest?
The reason I ask is that there are times when I can feel something out of place around me.
Call it what you will, sixth sense, hunch, gut feeling,whatever.
I realize that these creatures are highly evolved and masters of their environment but do their skills stop there?
It seems to me that they might possess such powers, and if they did that would make them even more difficult to find as they would "know" people are in the area even before hearing, seeing, or smelling them.
So what do the experts here think?
Is this idea plausible?
These critters have made me scratch my head many times...by Monster Hunter
Are they that damn smart or am I that damn dumb...or is it something we don't know?...my expertise is simple...I am unable to tell anyone anything other then my experiences...some I think are unusual but then again we are dealing with an unusual creature...
I have wrestled with this question for years now and have come to the conclusion the answer is no.I may be wrong it is just my opinion, thats what message boards are for.I like Monster Hunter wonder the same thing.Ask yourself this-what other animal do you know posses these powers?If like I suspect the sasquatch is nothing more than an elusive animal than why would he have supernatural abilities.One main problem with sasquatch research is it has been lumped in with UFO's, Ghosts,alien abuction,bermuda triangle,lochness monster and so on.Wich explains why my friends make fun of me.I Think they are more intelligent than we give them credit for. I think they are more elusive than even us researchers realize.Every time I go out I try to tell myself to forget outsmarting them,yet it turns out each time I do try to outsmart them, wich explains the frustrations we have.They are extremely inteligent.I beleive they are taught at early age to avoid contact with humans at all cost.The very fact that we have trouble finding these animals and the fact we have trouble coming to terms with the fact that we can be outsmarted in the wild lends to the conclusion of something supernatural.If they do not want to be seen then they simply are not going to be seen, exspecialy by someone they know is searching for them.They know me in my area and they know exactly what I am doing.I guess I am good for a bag of apples , but not a picture show.
Who have them coming up and knocking on their door for a cup of sugar can get them to smile real pretty and say CHEESE,,LOL!
Ya know, the Coy one!
BTW Sarcasm intended.
I remember Janice Coy coming on PalTalk and telling us about her "poop barn" that the BF were using as a regular toilet, and how as a child she used to dress them up in overalls!
Hee Haw BF LOL
Really, you can't make this stuff up.
If you're like 3!
Other than that, give us a break!
For those who didn't know...by Monster Hunter
I sent MK some hair the lady found in her yard...MK, last night, said the lady saw them pulling hair...no, she found the hair after seeing these Monsters, finding scat and then taking pictures...I thought I mentioned to MK that the lady found the hair...
While MK was going through the wad of hair he found a piece of meat attached to a few hairs...we immediately called a lab with MK overnighting this hair and meat...I have no idea how long this will take for testing and if this hair and meat is not contaminated to the point of tainting the DNA...
The "Hair"...any one know what this came from?...by Monster Hunter
Meat attached to a few hairs...
On the hair thing, my money in on ungulate and probably a mixture
of any number of them...sika, fallow and mostly white-tail.
Looks like rodent nesting material to me.
I don't think the hair came from a deer...by Monster Hunter
Maybe from the ungulate family...the hair is to long for white tail deer and the wrong color for the time of year...
Either mange or excema.
The texture sure looks right. The color is crazy with that mixture of colors. The hair I've seen was mostly all one shade with slight variation. This hair is certainly more interesting looking! LOL
An older animal.
With all the grays and black and light brown.
I am pretty sure of the origin but I will wait before I stick my neck out there!
Is this a form of lice or a supposed follicle? If it is lice - Igor Burtseva found much of this type hair in Tennessee many years back. Looks familiar as I have seen something like this years back as well
No idea Jeff...by Monster Hunter
But it appears to be some type of parasite...
