Yep...that's my partner...by Monster Hunter
I've made him tell me his tale several times and each time I can see by the look in his eyes it scared the sxxx out of him...it was his first encounter and it was one hell of an introduction to Monsters...
I don't know this man from Adam, but her sure sounds sincere. His eyes don't wander around as though he is looking for the next lie to tell. His mouth and lips are dry as they would be on someone who is re-telling a stressful experience. And his attention to small details is that of someone recalling an event, not someone making a story up as he goes. If he is telling a fib, he is darn good at it. He seems credible to me, for what that is worth.
Credibility is an issue with some...by Monster Hunter
Our organization will not knowingly associate with anyone that has credibility issues...
I believe him , very credible witness, one heck of an encounter, a brave man.
Watched a bunch. Not to be redundant but as I'm listening the hair stood up on my neck as he tells it. Never seen this one...maybe its bc hes from the same part of the country and I know this type all business and speaks as though...you don't speak unless what is said is real. Doesn't appear... as my grandmother would say he is or would ever be "talking to be talking". Never seen one but maybe soon as I will travel to the deepest part of the Angelina National Preserve over labor day.
BTW does anyone know if you can carry inside a national forest now? Ive heard yes and no.
Friday, December 05, 2008
Starting in early January, some kayakers in the Okefenokee Swamp, campers on Cumberland Island, and hikers on national Chattahoochee River trails can start packing more than their lunch.
The U.S. Department of Interior on Friday announced a new firearms regulation that allows visitors to national parks and wildlife refuges to carry concealed weapons, as long as they have a permit from the state they are in.
If youre allowed to carry a concealed weapon on Main Street, youre allowed to carry that weapon in a national park and wildlife refuge, said Chris Paolino, an Interior spokesman.
The new rule should take effect on or about Jan. 8, he said.
Paolino said the parks service decided to defer to the states, where the decisions about carrying firearms in most cases reside already.
State laws already determine the firearms policies on federal forest service lands, including the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests in north and middle Georgia. Georgia issues permits for concealed weapons.
The new national parks rule will only apply outdoors. As with every other federal building, weapons will not be allowed in visitor centers, restrooms and other structures on park property, Paolino said.
Visitors also will still be subject to all the laws regulating firearms. That means its still illegal to openly carry or brandish a weapon and to discharge it, Paolino said.
But the final regulation is broader than the original proposal. Earlier this year, the department proposed a rule that would only apply to states that allow permit holders to carry concealed weapons in their own parks or half the states. Georgia joined those ranks earlier this year when the Legislature passed a gun-rights law that allows people to carry concealed weapons in state parks, on MARTA buses and trains and buses and in restaurants.
The final rule extends the right to all 48 states that issue any type of permit for concealed weapons. Illinois and Wisconsin are the only two states that do not, according to Scot McElveen, president of the Association of National Park Rangers, which opposed the new rule.
That means permitted concealed weapons will be allowed in Californias national parks including Yosemite, Joshua Tree and Point Reyes even though they are not allowed in state parks. In some cases, the new rule repeals a century-old ban on guns in national parks.
The measure was backed by the National Rifle Association and 51 senators, including Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.).
It was opposed by the National Parks Conservation Association, former national park directors and retired park superintendents.
Things that make you go HMMMM.....
Missing since the middle of July...by Monster Hunter
Two things...he's gone and never ever go by yourself into dangerous areas you're not familiar with...
some of those stories were fascinating.
...make you think. I have been to the Gatlinburg areas many times...I have an extra ear out and eyes peeled.
...just curious with all the wet and seasonably cool weather if there was any new activity to report
Grumpy and I have been out a few times this spring/summer camping, and had some mild activity on our first trip in late April. We had a few very clear screams and something was thrown into camp. My daughter even witnessed that. I was out hiking when this occurred, so Grumpy will have to give you the full details. We have also followed up on a report or two that went to Grumpy personally as most around this area know he is a researcher/investigator. The best time for activity around here is generally between September and February, so as stated in a previous post, Tis the season. I will keep the forum updated if anything new and exciting happens, as I'm sure Grumpy will as well.
I've been WAY out of the loop for a few years, but am interested in hearing about anything new in the state as well, as well as any planned outings in the future. Is there an active investigation org in the area these days?
Love that area. Weyerhaeuser and "others" have detoured visitors though. I bet even my trailer bar is closed now... lol.
up there for sure. So glad I got to visit. Even though the weather sucked, it was still gods country
I had time to watch a few minutes...by Monster Hunter
Pretty interesting...and Don is right...beautiful country...
Its the best smaller track I've ever seen...by Monster Hunter
Over the years I've seen many larger tracks...photo was taken at Ms. Francis home...she saw the track line and covered this one straddling it with a tricycle...
Getting to be "that time of year"...by Monster Hunter
Just finished planting our fall food plots. Our season in SC starts September 15. Ready with great anticipation!
A partner stopped by this morning...by Monster Hunter
Telling me some folks he knows are coming this way from New Orleans to fly a drone over several areas of interest...no idea exactly what this drone is with a camera system but plan on taking some pictures and getting the details...could be interesting?...I hope so...
The Drone...by Monster Hunter
I was surprised...speed, distance and maneuverability...dogs loved it...
What I didn't like...by Monster Hunter
Noise...sounded like a hive full of mad bees swarming...here in Louisiana our pine forests are too darn thick to fly over and see anything ground level...has, I think I heard, a 6 minute air time...I could be wrong...but it was pretty dadgum neat but not 5000 dollars neat...
there's no such thing as bigfoot. Trappers talk about fur, hunters talk about game, loggers talk about timber but no one talks about bf. Well, occasionally the city folks do who have bf on the brain and who don't know a porcupine from a groundhog but not the locals or anyone else who knows the bush. Too bad...
Correction T...by Monster Hunter
May not have any Monsters where you are but down here...there's a bunch of them...
I'm just talking about here in Ontario.
Yes I know...by Monster Hunter
But other visitors might think you're a trouble maker coming to a BF forum making a statement of there being no Monsters...
Speaking of snakes...by Monster Hunter
Check the below out...thanks to Mr. Phelps for sending it to me...
If they could get the resolution a little better it would be good but I think this would help you spot a monster in overlay mode.
Check out the IR blue.
It Bluetooth connects to your iPhone, iPad or android.
The kit is $160.00 and fully assembled is $195.00.
He said "We are working on a couple of higher resolution options but it will be a while still.".
I'm not sure what a "While" is, but hopefully months and not years.
Flir...by Monster Hunter
Has a "Summer Sale"... Good deals on some refurbished cameras but still pricy....
Is the ability to record video.
I have the FLIR I5 but it only takes still shots, if you get a FLIR unit that records video you are easily talking about $3500.00 or more.
Personally I hope FLIR comes up with their own version of these units at a substantially lower price.
I have no words.
I don't know what's worse...the snake or the reporters!
According to the article...by Monster Hunter
The snake weighed in at nearly 87 pounds and nearly 7 feet long...
I had no idea they could get that large.
...many an early spring turkey hunt cause of those blasted rascals! I hate 'em!!
....we lived in Charleston, SC on The Nval Station along the Santee Cooper River. We roamed the swamps and marshes. My mom still does not know we killed a 6 foot water moccasin we found in one of our haunts.
Mean sucker to!
I was in the Okeefenokee swamp in Ga and it must have been this ones momma cause it chase me and my canoe for about ten minutes and tried like the devil to get in my canoe. I know it wasn't 7 feet but it was big enough to be a badaxx. Didn't have a pistol with me since I was with a group of kids that I was counseling. Finally chased it off by hitting it with my paddle. Had two kids in my canoe and three other canoes with them screaming and yelling. I can laugh at it now but I'll tell you I wasn't laughing then. Now when I go canoeing or fishing here in Florida, I always take a my 9mm. In Florida, you can carry a gun on the way to fishing, while you are fishing and on the way back from without a permit. Just have to have valid fishing license and have fishing pole with you.
I can't imagine trying to walk trails while wearing neck high snake boots, anyone know who sells any...... LOL
Wow! Didn't know they got that big. Glad we don't have them like that. The ones around here are usually short and stubby. 3ft. or so at the most. They are some mean critters. I'd hate to run across one 7ft. long!
Yep...about three feet would be the max...by Monster Hunter
I've seen but they are aggressive and stink...I along with many can smell them long before we see them...
The "cotton mouth" can be aggressive and attack. While fishing I caught one on a "beetle spin". I had no machette or gun with me at the time. After removing this biting, slithering, upset snake, it tried numerous times to get into the canoe. I had to paddle 30-40 yards away from this snake. While pig hunting I had numerous water moccasins come to me, not go away from me. I think they try to chase away animals by their aggressive nature. Also I know if there are snakes, hogs are not around. They do kill and eat them.
....they give off a strong musky odor. Once you smell it, you will never forget it. My in laws live in PCB, FL along the swamps and glades and have them all over the place.
You smell it, don't move and look around.
Yes it is...N/Tby Monster Hunter
Not BF related but somehow it relates to some of us...by Monster Hunter
I'll have to remember that comeback line "Do I look stupid?" the next time she asks if this dress makes her look fat!
Yeah...me to Ken...by Monster Hunter
The best thing a man can do in a situation such as this is to just pretend he did not hear the question. Some women call it selective hearing. Take my advise and employ this method immediately when confronted with this situation. This question is a black hole from which no man can return from safely! Stay strong brothers
Selective hearing...by Monster Hunter
If you don't have it you need to get it...and yes sir...I do have it...
Don Don and Scott LOL
Need a reality show.
Rich on that one.
please don't let them make you grow beards...love Duck Dynasty but would LOVE to actually see the faces behind the whiskers. Tired of Southerners being painted as hicks and dweebs. Just sayin'
Funny as heck.......love it...
reminded me of a guy on "Diggers," a t.v. show about two guys using metal detectors to dig up historic artifacts. Since I love anything historic, I enjoy watching what they find. My favorite of the two is named--believe it or not--King George or K.G. for short. The guy wearing the orange shirt talked like King George from "Diggers" might, if he was drunk. LOL
RR is a week away from her first substitute gig of 2013-2014
Billy sent me the below photo...by Monster Hunter
His emailed said it came from a friend to his brother who caught this with a game camera and posted it on FB...Apparently I'm not his friend...no idea what it is...looks like the predator with long head hair toting a head...
is a nekkid white man with a raccoon on his shoulder, carrying a small christmas tree and a corgi dog walking with him.
I dunno what it is.
The next day Ms. Shirley...by Monster Hunter
Finds these in her drive way...yes it's dry here and the ground is hard...
that boy is on the "husky" side!
Small rocks or something that...by Monster Hunter
Sounds like smaller rocks hitting the house waking the ladies up plus hearing loud screams...
some attention. Maybe in a strange way they are trying to say "hi, we're still here."
I still don't think they want to harm the women, just my opinion. I wonder if there was a way to communicate with them.
So far so good other than...by Monster Hunter
Having the crap scared out of them at times...think about it.... Monsters outside walking around your home trying to look in the windows to I guess... see them...
Timber has this same problem and its been going on for years...
For some unknown reason, Timber manages to motivate their #$% to leave the property in extreme haste! LOL
Has a picture of me and DonDon on his porch that will explain it quite well......
think he's got more than one pic lol
Pictures from the ladies properties...by Monster Hunter
#1...trail by the pond...this trail connected both Ms. Francis and Ms. Shirley's property...#2...I took this picture of this smaller twisted tree back behind Ms. Francis on the first visit...#3...Ms. Shirley found this track in her driveway...
thats a heck of a print Jim.
I spoke with Ms. Francis this morning...by Monster Hunter
A night or so back she was awaken by a noise outside...she got up and looked but being as dark as it was she didn't see anything but she did move to the couch in the living room...next morning she walked around the house finding an old multi colored basket ball next to her bedroom window...I found this ball in the back and moved it down by the pond placing it in a divot where I knew wind couldn't move it about 150 yards away from her home...I had a couple of pictures of this ball but can't locate them for some reason...
The picture below are Monster tracks at Ms. Francis bedroom window...
Found the ball...by Monster Hunter
I knew I had a picture...
If you are going to give them a basketball. Do you think you could get them a hoop as well. At 9 FOOT. the Rockets could always use aother Center for shot blocking and rebounding. Id imagine they play for cheap too, dead deer carcasses and candy bars..so easy on the salary cap also.
....are LSU fans! GEAUX TIGERS!!!
Just a neat picture...kind of awesome...by Monster Hunter
Supposedly taken in Texas...man claimed he didn't see the tornado until the lightning strike...
The pic seems much too crisp and clear. There's no debris in the air at all.
Also, I'd imagine warning sirens (if in the area), radio reports, or the sound of a tornado THAT close would have been a hint that something was happening in the vacinity.
I'm leaning towards "fake" on this one.
Neat pic. BUT it ain't real. Photoshopped hoax.
Yes I think it's fake...by Monster Hunter
But it is a cool picture...
I was watching Andrew Zimmern recently.he was in south America amd went on a hike for a hunt with a tribe.one of the guts was knocking on a tree and told him that's weekday they did to let the other hunters know where they were.they called it the jungle telephone pole...
Thought that was pretty interesting
That is interesting...by Monster Hunter
I think I saw something similar one night on TV...
First report from the ladies...by Monster Hunter
Ms. Shirley had a 19 inch, approximate, track cast...also some damage to her back screen door which she had tried to repair...#2...Ms. Francis had a trailer she use to live in and would hear something beating on the trailer at night...#3...the back door to the trailer...I guess my point is...if you live in an area with Monsters...Sxxx happens...
BTW...one night walking at Ms. Francis I could see the back side and most of the yard at Ms. Shirley's by a flood light...I saw something run from the back side of her home...looked to be around six foot tall and fairly skinny...there was no way a human could navigate where this thing was heading without a light...the thicket it headed to is less then thirty yards from the house...
I was just wondering if I am the only member located in (south central) Arkansas?
O.K. Two questions.
Does anyone come here to do any research?
Just being curious...
I'm not quite sure but...by Monster Hunter
I live in NW Louisiana below Shreveport so if you ever get a hankering you can come do some snooping around with me or maybe I can come up your way...
I have a picture that is very interesting. It was posted on Facebook by a friend of a friend. Caught by a trail cam in a wooded swampy area.
No way to pat a pic?
Lets take a look...by Monster Hunter
If you don' t know how to post on the forum send it to the moderator...
I could email the pic, but hesitate to share it on a public forum...one of the best I've seen
I don't have the rights to this pic. I've asked the person who owns the Facebook page if I could share it...waiting to hear back
Comparison...by Monster Hunter
Look at the Monster standing to our left of the tree...draw a line to your right to the building to get a reference of height...second picture...find me if you can standing in the same spot and you will definitely know the Monster is darn near twice my height...different cameras so you need to use the building as a measurement...
Another picture for those who couldn't find me...by Monster Hunter
That's been cropped...
Had to pick at ya Jim. The one on the right side of the tree is crouched abit so he is one big critter
Did you notice her dog in the picture?...by Monster Hunter
She had five pups about five to six months old...out in an over grown patch with pine trees one late afternoon about dark they were barking at something but afraid to go any closer...I walked the entire area and didn't see anything...within a weeks time these four pups disappeared...the one that remained around the house is still alive and it comes to me now...it use to run from me...
many blob squatch photos. Even Jim looks blob squatchy. It definitely must be the cameras since I wouldn't think Monster Hunters presence in the woods would cause fright for the photographer, but then again I could be wrong about that. Hey MH quit scaring the photographer, your causing blob squatch photos of yourself.
Shadows...by Monster Hunter
And inexpensive cameras...
Weirdest picture...by Monster Hunter
Looks like a chimpanzee to the left and a black eyed looking something to the right...strange and kind of spooky...picture was taken by Ms. Shirley while she and Ms. Francis visited one of their hot spots...
the monsters are all over the place. those ladies must have a special nature not to be bothered by those critters. I think they can be aggressive but choose not to hurt them. I wonder what goes through the monsters' minds to stay in that area.
They know it's a safe area...by Monster Hunter
Monsters would cross in Ms. Francis back yard from early AM until around noon that she knew of...not every day but on occasion...at Ms. Shirley's it was all times of the day but traveled around the perimeter of the property in the tree line...
Ms. Francis would walk out amongst them and take pictures...not up real close but within twenty yards being the closest...unfortunately she was using a cheap camera and having pictures developed at Walgreens...their emulsion was so bad it ruined some of the negatives...
After me spending a few years with them they feel a bit more comfortable with Monsters being around but it's still hair raising to have them knock on the house, growl at them, hear strange languages or strange communication back and forth...I have pictures of Monster tracks that were standing at Ms. Francis bedroom window just a foot or two from the head of her bed...
Ms. Shirley uses a large piece of wood to barricade herself in her bedroom when her husband is gone...plus they both are armed and know how to use what they have...
Much more to the goings on than what I write about...Monsters are there but it's those damn ghosts I don't like hanging around...It really doesn't bother me but at times it's almost too weird for me...and I do mean it is weird and strange where you can feel it...not sense but feel...
Ms Francis....takes a photo...by Monster Hunter
with her throw away camera...to top things off she takes to Walgreens to have them developed where they haven't changed their emulsion in years...notice the vertical lines...something about this old cabin with Monsters and other oddities...and yes that's a Monster...I've spent many days on this property taking pictures, snooping around and talking to the ladies...
The below would follow me around at times...by Monster Hunter
Put a slight stench on me...break a stick to get me to look and make some critter sounds that would definitely not be in these thickets...no...I ain't telling...LOL...some things you have to learn on your own...
BTW...had my digital on zoom...about 80 yards from me...
I see the red box obviously...my eyes keep getting pulled right back to the centered pine that looks maybe 10 to 15 yards in front and to the left of that. I may be stating the obvious but that looks like something cone headed peaking around the tree. maybe I should have put "captain obvious" in the box for 'Your Name'. Pics are all incredible (there's another one in this group) specifically the one where he can be seen to the right of the tree and I would guesstimate that he's 9 ' maybe taller. Anyway, lots to learn.
I'm not surprised some see a few more "maybe" Monsters in the pictures...by Monster Hunter
What I put in a red box is obvious to me and if it's kind of shadowy I leave those up to the readers of the forum...
Definately a monster there, Cool place to investigate
Hey Jim, look at the grass on the right.I make out a few bf in there bud...weekday duo you think?
I can't do the red line thing on my droid.
I couldn't locate the original picture but...by Monster Hunter
can't see anything other than the one...to the right the dark object is a cross tie...
This is what I was talking about....
I saw that in the original...by Monster Hunter
couldn't make out any details or shapes so it's just a dark spot...
a good digital camera, that woulda have been a money shot right there
I agree Don...by Monster Hunter
and she now uses one of my digitals...I hope...
With them not scared to let her see them, she should be able to get a money shot one day. I really liked the one she took with the digital camera where when you zoom in on it, you can see half it's face. really good pic
Zoomed in and did a few more things. This is the best I cold get it.
That's pretty darn good there man, I can see a lot of improvement, thanks .
I tried to work on a cople more of them but just couldn't get them much better with all the pixels and such
Excuse thr french but
this critter does have long *** arms....
Jim ty for sharing bud.that's why I come here for the info and the friendship..
They come in all shapes and sizes...by Monster Hunter
This Monster appears to be powerfully built...but...knowing where it is standing and possibly bent over a bit it's around five feet tall...could be this critter to the left in the red box since it appears to have longer arms...
I crop and enlarge only Don...by Monster Hunter
I don't want anyone thinking I'm somehow manipulating the photo...BTW...you done good...
and you have a dang good reason not to enhance it. You post em and I'll play with em LOL

thanks for sharing.
When we finally get moved, I got to fix my 3 foot tall Bigfoot and get him back out in the yard. Bought one of them off line and it fell over, bout broke his arm off. Just need to do a little fixin on it
there are no clear pics???
And I'm gonna skin Jake for being so close and not coming to see me.
Jake and I talked about you the other day Timber...by Monster Hunter
He told me you had something roaming around that cabin of yours he wanted to stick an arrow in or maybe give some lead poisoning...
The big ones are running over the little ones...
That boy...by Monster Hunter
Stays hooked up and will be for the next few weeks...he finishes school this fall and I'm quite sure he will worry the crap out of you...
looks like he's awful comfortable. He even posed for the camera. LOL
Everyone please pray for my wife Penny, she just had back surgery, suppose to make her able to walk good again, that's what we are hpoeing anyway! She's home and doing ok, alot of pain though. Thanks guys
Prayers...by Monster Hunter
For a fast, healthy recovery...
I hope she feels better soon AND that her surgery is a success.
The ladies...by Monster Hunter
Left to right...Ms. Francis...Ms. Shirley and of course me...I am fortunate to have two ladies that live near each other, have Monsters and hustle reports for me...the picture was taken in an area where two men were screamed at one night, had a strange light one night floating through the trees following them or staying even with their vehicle...they had a day time sighting close to the ladies homes and told me Wednesday they found a huge track...their camera wouldn't work but were going back to get a picture hopefully...
They look like some sweet ladies, they seem to be of much help
, they sue have plenty of activity.
I think of them often. They are allot braver than me to stay where they are with all the paranormal and monster activity!
Oh yeah...nice but pretty darn tough...by Monster Hunter
I was down last week visiting the ladies and Doug which BTW is Shirley's husband...we went through some pictures and video from the camera system...some weird stuff floats around there at times...
Both of them or perhaps it's only Ms Francis that are "open receivers" of the paranormal. I was more open when growing up than I am now...so, I think that's why you see so much activity going on around them. Thanks for posting the photo. It's nice to have a face to go along with a name and you are looking very well, too.
I was watching MK's videos and found this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dr8Pl4D6GrI
He's discussing the simularities in some recordings from the north and the south.
Brought back memories for me. Sounds just like the two individuals talking that I heard from my deer stand one afternoon in central Louisiana.
Thanks MK, keep up the good work!
It's time for me to STHU for awhile...
A great thanks to Monster Hunter for everything...Thanks also to MS Mike, Versatile, Woodswatcher and Grumpy.
Thanks for everything guys...
Don't get discouraged...by Monster Hunter
Keep on keeping on doing what you enjoy doing and then sharing...darn near all of us appreciate your time and work in the area you search...sometimes you have to have thick skin to survive in this whacky community at times...mine"s as thick as an alligator...
Dont lat the dumb A's bother you what the heck they got? keep on trucking and Get-R-Done!
hear from ya soon, take care and be safe!
This has made Foxnews.com (and will probably be on other news sites soon) - so exposure will be pretty good for this subject.
Arjs to short and looks like someone stumbling around. Not smooth moving
it looks good, but check out his other videos.....last week he posted the one with the "chinese tourists", so that is 2 video sightings in a week....could happen....unlikely, but could......
OK. So I watched the video several times and something is fishy to me. I see the supposed Bigfoot on the ridge behind the tree, then it steps out from behind the tree starting to walk to the right. But right after it starts walking, there seems to be some video clipped out as the "creature" is then shown behind the next tree line. It would appear that maybe that part of the video was clipped so as not to show the creature walking to the tree line. I don't know...This type of video though would be the type I would think would be more believable than your typical "walking in the forest, so I guess I will turn on my video camera to see if I catch Bigfoot on Tape" type.
Scratch my last post regarding the video. I guess the version I watched on youtube was due to a problem with that post. Since then I have viewed the Video via Fox and there is not a "cut" in the video. Anyway, still not good enough to tell one way or another if it is a Bigfoot or not. But it does seem more believable than not.
This just seems like an invitation for hoaxers, especially to advertise it. What happened to ole' fashion research?
these days. IF I can ever get moved into the new place, I got an idea on how to research an area but It's going to take a year or so to get everything set up.
I don't know much about drones but science has time and time again rejected videos. It will require physical evidence with dna........Good luck with the move.
has been tainted by hoaxers. Even DNA submissions can't be relied on...i.e. the Melba chick. It's gonna take a body verified by science for the whole world to see.
This is the one that Dr. Meldrum is part of. The falcon project.I've always thought sometimes you have to think outside the box instead of doing the same ole things ffor 60+years....please don't take me as being rude lol....
I do agree with terry though, it's gonna take a body....
It's going to take a corpse on a slab...by Monster Hunter
Hoaxing has escalated these past few years because of the Internet but we've always had liars and hoaxers involved...some of the first recorded sightings and evidence reported was suspicious at best...but...it got quite a few people involved...
....I will preface this by saying that what I am about to post may get me banished from this forum. If so, I accept that. However, I am just going to state my opinion.
First, I have believed in bigfoot and the thought that they are out there from a very early age. I have had my own encounters, some reported and some not. Both this sight and BFRO found my sightings not important enough to follow up on. Others have.
My opinion is this: There is enough of the scientific communtiy and public community constantly bashing us and discrediting us at every turn. So why do we, as a community of believers, want to bash and discredit one another??? Yes, the Biscardi's and the Georgia "Body" hoaxers are the bad apples and some of the tv shows are a little much. So why must we feel the need to discrdit one another.
What may get me banished is this statement... I have noticed on this site that whenever a video or report (mainly the DNA)or one of the experts, such as Dr. Meldrum put up any information, this site seems to shoot it down and discredit it?? Yet, there are constant pics of blobsquatches and trees and forest. Forgive me, but I have yet to see any "monsters"...Sorry.
I just do not understand a community such as ourselves who should stay tight knit want to fight amongst ourselves.
If I am banished for this post then I want to thank everyone for our interactions and wish you all the best.
We don't ban for opinions...by Monster Hunter
....I can see!!! haha
Hey Jim, how's it going bud...Hey how big do u think the bf is in the top pic u just posted.saw them before but don't think I ever asked.
Just a guess....by Monster Hunter
Between 7 and 8 foot tall but can tell by the picture he is big...I haven't seen this one down there before...and have no idea how many male Monsters are there...
I can't speak for anyone else, but I have seen so many times where I will get my hopes up just a bit, only to be let down. Over and again. All in all it makes me a wee bit or more cynical at times. I'm not saying it is right, it is just the way things are sometimes and I can't help saying-here we go again! So now I hardly ever comment on those things or really give them much of a second thought. I simply wait and with time they usually make dummies of themselves(the hoaxers). As for the pics, well, if one looks at them in the traditional way one usually looks at a family gathering photo nothing will be noticed normally. I have had to train my eyes to look at times at what ISN'T there and really look between things and after I did that and really practiced I began seeing them. There are some very good pics on this site-comparatively speaking IMO. BF don't pose like a gorilla at a zoo might. This hobby requires a boatload of patience I have found, and then some more. Relax, you are gonna be here awhile! There is so much to learn, the surface has barely been scratched.
This is a high quality photo I took of a large hand print in an obscure part of Lovelock cave. This is the same cave where, in ancient times, ancestors of the Piutes were said to have burned alive a tribe of giant people with red hair. The giants were said to have been cannibalistic. M.K.

Cool! Interesting stuff. I was watching your video you have up on that yesterday.
YiuTube...Lovelock Cave...MK Davis...by Monster Hunter
Jake says its kind of cheesy...by Monster Hunter
Camera man knows where to zoom in every time...BTW...I agree with Jake...
It seems a little staged.
These are designed to clip onto and utilize the camera of your smart phone.
Thought there wasn't any bones? About the 11 1/2 to 12 minute mark he's talking about apelike with big eye sockets for night vision. I'm still watching now but wanted to post it up. Opinions?
After watching Dons video...by Monster Hunter
For those who haven't seen...
Sasquatch Sighting or Disguised Pot Growers?
He's talking about Patty now and this was from 1999 I believe. Muscles, where the elbow bends, boobies and a few other things. LOL
the Minn Ice man as a kid. No doubting it was a real animal
to watch past about the 1:10 mark. After he talked about Zana, the Bigfoot captured by the russian village and her offspring, he goes off the deep end LOL
If you've never heard of Zana before, here's a little light reading
not sure what to say after watching that one jim LOL
I do agree Don...by Monster Hunter
Kind of cheesy...
Looks like that was put on for the tourists!
ParaBreakdown does some excellent sleuthing to uncover the origins of that video here.
His other stuff is pretty good, too.
and Frank Hanson killing it
has a book by the same name, I got it a few years back, it is quite a good read.
I couldn't stop watching it. The only part that bothered me was he was comparing what looked like one of those fake Wallace footprint casts with the square toes. lol
I never believed the nonsense about us evolving from apes. He makes a good case for that not happening.
and kinda laughed at him there for a second.
He's on to something.
It may upset some folks but the truth is the truth.
I've read a lot of books on the subject and have a lot of questions regarding points at which evolutional lines stop. a total stop with supposed jumps to something else with a totally different biological frame.
There were a couple of periods where complete species just appeared here as if being brought here from somewhere else!
The "Cambrian explosion" is one of these eras.
Monster tries to get into boat with frog hunters...by Monster Hunter
Two men frogging at a smaller local lake one night heard a loud splash a few yards from their boat...both claimed it was a five or six foot orangutan trying to get in the boat with them...frantically they hit at this Monster with their paddles and only saw glimpses because of their fear...I've been on that lake many times before I believed in Monsters but there is definitely a strange vibe at night out their...heavily wooded...moss hanging from tree limbs with lilly pads and moss covering a large part of the water....and full of snakes of all makes, sizes and models...
BTW...My partner and I had several reports told to us Saturday...from a sighting crossing a fence and road where the Monster was silhouetted to folks, woodsmen/hunters, being yelled and screamed at by unidentifying some things...
for posting that up Jim. Pretty neat stuff right there
frog legs to eat? They could have sat down and ate and washed it down with a cold one. Joking aside, at my age, I would probably had a heart attack. As spooky as it sounds, they have to have a pair of " big ones" to be out there in the first place. Can you tell us where the area might be?
Sure I can....by Monster Hunter
But I'd have to kill you....give me a call and I'll tell you....
Wow! That would be unnerving for sure. The hunters were probably taking all of his frogs. LOL I've been out at night in a boat many times, the only thing that really scared me was that alligator that was longer than the boat and almost as wide!
there was a story going around that was confirmed by a .gov offical regarding a monkee that climbed aboard a pontoon boat where 2 crappie fisherman were fishing at night.
the 2 fishermen tried to beat it off the boat with an oar and by throwing tackle boxes and by "Rough Talking" it. finally one of the fishermen pulled out a .22 revolver out of a tackle box and emptied it into it at close range and it screamed at them and jumped out of the boat and swam away underwater.
I was asked it was a possibility of this really happening. I told them that nothing would surprise me about these things.
there have been a ton of stories about these things getting close to a boat and stealing stringers of fish too.
must have some pretty darn thick skin-lots of tales of em getn shot but they always run off or swim off never to be seen again.
That made me think of this letter addressed to Ivan Sanderson reprinted from page 96 of his 1961 magnum opus Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life:
Dear Mr. Sanderson,
I listened to you on Long John Nebel's program last Thursday and
was very much surprised that you talked about such things as Abominable
Snowmen in America. I am a housewife but I majored in biology, attended
our state university and have an M.A. in plain zoology. My husband is
an experimental chemist employed by [company name withheld for obvious
reasons. Author] and my eldest son is a technician in the Air Force. I
come from Mississippi but we have resided here (in Kentucky) for ten
I wonder if you have ever heard of the Little Red Men of the Delta?
Nobody thought anything much of them where I was raised except that
one had better be careful of shooting one because it might be murder, or
so the sheriff might think if anything came of it, but I was surprised
to find that the folks hereabout know about it too though they took some
years to talk about it to me. My husband is a New Englander and these
folks don't talk much. They are [the Little Red Men of the Delta] said to be
about the size of a ten year old kid and able to climb like monkeys and to
live back from the bayous. They talk a lot but keep out of gunshot range
and mostly go into the water. They are people and the muskrat trappers
say they often wear scraps of discarded lines [linens?] old jeans and such.
If you have heard about them will you talk about them on the air as
it puzzles me that nobody has ever talked about them but everybody in
some places seems to know about them. There was sure nothing in my
biology course about them but there's a lot folks don't know
or don't talk about
Mrs. V. K.
Did those two men frogging happen to notice if their orangutan was wearing pants? LOL!
A few years back like this one. Only the monster did get on the pontoon with them until one of the men shot it off the boat with a shotgun..
Yep...Monsters getting in the boats...by Monster Hunter
at night would darn sure almost eliminate night fishing and frogging...
I used to fish several nights a week and have had Monsters come in close on tha bank but never tried to get in the boat. I always thought they were attracted to the chicken liver I was using for bait...
It was those female Monsters...by Monster Hunter
checking you out Timber...
Ole boys tall enough to be a monster. LOL
Nice T...by Monster Hunter
Other videos are nice as well...
I thought so too! Hope you're having a good summer and all the best to you and your family!
Having a good time T...by Monster Hunter
Ive been keeping up on you through Face Book...you are one busy man...one day you need to come down for a visit...
Thanks for posting that. Thats pretty cool. Those caribou sure are ugly critters, but they do taste good though!
Here is a really good video if none have seen it before...
thanks for posting that!
Well, if the U.S. govt. is hiding evidence, they haven't told the Canadian govt. I worked in forestry for 34 yearsfor the government and never heard a peep about bf from anyone. I was one of the few who had my radar up too cause of my interest.
Because of the hoaxers and flakes out there, I'm one of those guys who would have to see on up close and personal to be 100% sure in my mind that bf animals are running around.
Does anyone else find Dr. Meldrum as being kinda gullible and probably an easy target for hoaxers?
I do believe...by Monster Hunter
many interested folks believe are want to believe so bad they do become gullible becoming an easy target for the crap slingers...
Hey terry no problem....I love gathering all the info I can find.......Hey I've seen a post about this b ut I've been watching mountain monsters. It is a pretty good show actually.a general cryptid show.not just about bigfoot.
But I see I am no longer needed here.
God bless to all....always fight back...hard..or the bullies of the world will win...and their agenda is filled with nothing but evil.
Your friend always.
You're always welcome Jim...by Monster Hunter
One day you need to come for a visit before we're to damn old to get around...
Maybe...hopefully...but...by Monster Hunter
somehow the body went from a human to a bear and lastly either a cow or a deer. Oh and they POOF, body disappeared and no one knows where it went to OOPSY
BIGFOOT IS NOT REAL!!!!
YES I KNOW...by Monster Hunter
Thanks for the heads up...
Hey Monster Hunter I guess I can walk in the woods again...at night...with no flashlight.
Most people didn't think these "monsters" were real either:
and my favorite:
Few people even now have seen them although they were both "found" in the 19th century...Yet another couple of reasons I don't like deep water.
If you feel that the creature that is the namesake of this forum is not real, then why bother visiting? Curious are you? Are you doubting yourself? Or are you simply looking for an argument? Whatever the case may be, welcome. And I assure you, these creatures are real. Remember, just because you have not seen something does not mean it is not real. If having a picture, or video, or bones, or actual sighting is the only criteria to prove something exists, then how do you explain the wind, or love, or God??? And I assume you agree that these things are real. Enjoy you visits to our humble forum.
Thanks for sharing. That's it? Neither is a gorilla if this was the late 1800's or two new species of whale if this was 2010, one over 30 ft long. I bet you have spent a bunch of time in desolate forest too and camping out behind your momma's house in the burbs doesn't count. If you want to see where he's not...I've got a place for you to try to confirm that not to far in the Angelina national reserve. Its only a 1 hour or so into the woods off the neches river. Answer back and I'll send you my email.
you base your profound exclamation on What exactly??? Have you recently come back from a camping expedition, seen something, and now are questioning YOUR very existence? And what IS "real"? Stick around though. You may learn a few things or change your mind eventually.
He solved it,,lol.
Some folks can't see anything past the end of their nose.
I am upset with myself since I have had a ridiculous number of opportunities to get both decent stills and decent video and I have been unable to do either very well.
The video camera I am using is recording at 720P. I can't seem to zoom in beyond 20 feet with any clarity. This is a still taken from a video last year and here is the context. I saw a monster standing by some bushes and before I could raise my camera in a flash it was gone. I was coming into the first clearing from the left of the picture. I walked around the bush trying to take pictures and I started hearing screams behind me. I started backing out. I came in East to West and backing out South. At one point I heard noises to my left, the bushes where one went in were directly in front of me and the screams were coming from my front right. The distance is approximately 60 or so feet. This is the area I saw one before it went into the bushes:
The red arrow is the area that I want to examine. The Yellow arrow corresponds to another picture
This is a clip from the video taken approximately 2 minutes later.
The yellow arrow is the place I saw an anomaly the same day but 3 hours earlier that morning.
This is the picture taken with my camera distance is about 100-120 feet:
This is a still from the video taken at approximately 20 feet:
and another still from the video about 1/2 second later. Please note the facial position change:
I am asking for advice on what to get to upgrade my equipment. I need reasonable and realistic ideas please.
would be to try and get all of those screams of yours recorded.
I tried sending it off to an organization that stated they would break down such things. All I got was the "huffing" was common and it would be too difficult to isolate the screams because of the high frequency bird noises.
I think I ended up sending my audio to an organization that kept it for their own files
Do you have reputible contacts?
In the first three stills I was leaving the area and was walking from RIGHT to LEFT of the picture. That equals movement East to west and backing up in the opposite direction the camera is facing.
There are some who visit this forumby Monster Hunter
That should be able to help but unfortunately I'm not one of them...
knows a lot about video equipment.
On both audio recorder and video. The first audio clip occurred close to the creek area before I got to the first clearing. The second are the "screams " I am referring to and occurred just before I come to the decision it was in my best interest to leave the area:
what I would call screams (I never see anything in the blurry photos either) but perhaps it was more evident in the field. We always hear that the forest goes silent when bf are around buy your bird population was happily singing away! Good for them! lol
Thanks for posting that!
The audio is blurry.
As far as the birds being quiet...I am finding that statement as not true...
Thanks for your input Terry
Ms Shirley sent me the below...by Monster Hunter
Across the pond from her home about 100 yards...there's a levy or dam on that side of the pond with a sloping drop off of about six feet...at one time this group of Monsters were bedding up behind this pond...now I have no idea if this is anything or not but have been there many times and have never noticed anything that looks like a couple of Monsters behind any foliage...
I confused "Tool Making" with "Tool Using'....two different things.
BF using a twig to dig out an ant hole/termite mound is one thing....tool using.
"Tool Making".....is when he starts fashioning spears from rocks to attack the "Human People"
New knees...by Monster Hunter
Still have a bit of pain at times but so far so good...wish I would have replaced them years back...BTW...thanks for asking Nellie...
New knees....Not easy knockin a good man down. (But they'll keep tryin...)
Fight the good fight, bro!!!
PETA...dog lovers my axx...by Monster Hunter
Dear Dog Lover,
The American Kennel Club® (AKC) and the Virginia Veterinary Medical Association (VVMA) have today issued statements to highlight their vehement disapproval of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)s apparent policy of euthanizing animals frequently at its shelter in Norfolk, VA. Furthermore, the AKC has called for the PETA shelter to take steps towards balancing its adoption and euthanasia rates for dogs and cats in its shelter.
While most shelters strive for a 90% re-homing rate, PETA is apparently proud of their 99% killing rate and callously boasts that the animals it rescues are better off dead. That is an alarming ratio that should be fully investigated. PETAs track record is absolutely unacceptable, said AKC Chairman Alan Kalter. Legitimate animal shelters in America re-home most of their sheltered animals. If some of Michael Vicks fighting dogs can be rehabilitated and re-homed then PETA can and should do better. If they cannot or will not then they should leave sheltering to others.
Re-homing a dog is not always the easiest but it is AKCs preferred route. PETAs apparent lack of commitment to re-homing is hypocritical. Our experience, through AKC clubs rescue network, proves that a rescued dog can often thrive if given the much-needed love, medical care, rehabilitation and responsible placement into a new home. AKC is disgusted that euthanasia is seemingly so easily employed by PETA.
While it is true that some animals at shelters are too physically injured or psychologically scarred to be adoptable, many of them can be successfully treated, rehabilitated and adopted, said VVMA President, Mark Finkler, D.V.M. Veterinarians throughout Virginia work with numerous shelters and rescue groups to assist in the care of these dogs and cats. It is disappointing to hear that PETA has a different philosophy regarding the handling of these abandoned and unwanted pets."
These same axxholes...by Monster Hunter
Will picket a chicken shack...but kill an unwanted dog in a heart beat...
last one was this past saturday night. A guy I know was sitting at his house down near the river and saw a shadow crouched down outside his bedroom window. He's one of those guys who doesn't play around so he went outside and told whoever it was they need to get off his property. Needless to say when he yelled at it, it stood up. It was a large creature, pushing 7 1/2 feet tall and before he could get to his shotgun, it was gone. Pretty neat to have a friend see one. The othe report I can't rememeber all the details but it was about 10 miles form this one
Wonder if he sees anything else...by Monster Hunter
at night in his yard will he go outside armed?...good report Don and tell your friend thanks for sharing...
he had another encounter back 15-20 years ago camping in California. It took him 2 years of knowing each other for him to tell me that story.
Those Chimps...by Monster Hunter
are meaner then a yellow yard dog...maybe we should train a group to hunter Monsters...
That's exactly how Monsters hunt only on the ground...
Spoke with Ms. Francis yesterday...by Monster Hunter
She gave a young man a ride home from the store last week...young man told her that he and his dad were headed home and saw a large black something on all fours cross near the bridge close to her home...
She and Ms. Shirley have taken pictures of Monsters at this bridge and this is the second sighting of a Monster near this bridge...
Could that be a bridge that a monster could live under? Possibly could they have a bedding area nearby or a trail that they use? Possible good area for a trail cam? Have you checked out that area? Sorry...just some thoughts.
Didn't see any sign under the bridge...by Monster Hunter
They cross north of the bridge and so far what has been seen was headed back east towards the ladies homes...
they made themselves quite comfortable at their house / home. Other than a rural setting, do you know why they have settled in that area? Perhaps they were there before the houses were built ?
Been there for a long period of time...by Monster Hunter
Ms. Francis saw tracks leading from the back of her house years back after a snow...said she didn't think much about it at the time...no idea why but she ain't the lady that spooks easily...Ms. Shirley has known something was around for over ten years since they moved into the home...Doug while working on the house would hear strange noises and walking sounds next to the house in the under brush...
I guess before they figured out they had Monsters they figured it was ghosts beating and banging on the house...I know that more than several have seen a little ghost girl in the house and at Ms. Francis home they hear walking sounds throughout the house but mostly in the hallway leading to the bedrooms...
It is a weird place at times...even I can sense something just ain't right...not often but on a few occasions...
When are we going to see some clear photos of these creatures? Having so many of them go through their property, surely there must be many opportunities to wait and get a clear photo.
There are some pretty good pictures...by Monster Hunter
Search the MB and look...or do you think someone here owes you something?...
Even if you know these things are in the vicinity. The ladies, however, have taken some very good pictures that have been posted.
I agree with Monster Hunter though... the best way to get a crystal clear picture is to go to a location and take one for yourself.
Every now and then we have a few...by Monster Hunter
who ask questions that don't keep up with the forum...
but I have not seen one photo coming from their property that is clear and unambiguous. Most look to be only shadows in the tree line, or of such poor quality that they should never have been used as evidence. Show me one good clear photo.
Re: All due respect MHby Monster Hunter
I'm not posting any pictures for you nor am I going to find the pictures here on the forum for you...
That one still has me laughing every time I read it!
camera, get out there, and show us one clear photo. Hit your local forest or wildlife area and get after it.
There are many more things that are NOT known about these creatures than things known. Stating that getting good clear pictures is dificult would be one of the biggest understatements I could make. Unless it is just a chance encounter many many things factor into why you can't just sit there and wait until they walk up, then snap a picture. We are talking about something that probably knows what cameras are, and are seemingly much more intelligent than they have been given credit for historically. If you look back over the past year on this board you will see some of the better pics around. Yhey simply don't pose for us and they blend in with the environment almost perfectly when they are around.
What ppl tend to not understand is they are similar in color as that of their surroundings
When u take a pic of them like that it is gonna be hard to see.unless they are out in the open and then they are still hard to see the details.....
Mary green taught me that years ago.When there are bridges on non used or barely used roads as well...canals,clearings etc.are awesome palaces as well..bridges hence Rivers,canals or streams...just like in boggy creek, they always follow the streams...
In all my years of BFing...by Monster Hunter
I have looked and checked under hundreds of bridges without finding any sign of Monsters...makes sense they would but I haven't found any tracks but have a story told me about a bridge that crosses the Sabine River...older lady has to use the bathroom and they're not close to any town so they pull over...she gets out going under the bridge and starts her business...just as she gets started good she claimed a Monster chased her out from under the bridge...
