Warmer weather...snakes begin to move...by Monster Hunter
This is an older picture...the below is a Timber Rattler killed at the foot of one of our corn feeders in the bottom...and he ain't eating the corn...
It's a good one though, it's DEAD lol
Yes sir...by Monster Hunter
IMO...all dead rattlers are good snakes...
get bitten? Is the bite lethal?
I hate snakes! Inidiana Jones
I'm tired of these ----censored----- snakes on this ------censored----- plane!!!!
Quickest way for me to end a turkey hunt on a warm spring day....see a snake! Shotgun goes BOOM!
I've carried a snake bite kit in the woods for years. Hopefully I'll never need it.
The snake he is holding is also known as a chevron rattler, and is common in NE Texas and NW Louisiana. I don't think I've ever seen one smaller than 5 ft. Yes, the bite can be quite lethal, depending upon where you are bitten, and how much venom you receive. The venom also tends to kill flesh and surrounding tissue, leaving a nasty looking scar at the area of the bite. A snake handler told me once that rattlesnake venom is similar to egg whites in the protein and enzymes it contains. He told me that if you were to inject yourself with egg whites, it would have the same effect. After seeing a few rattlesnake bite scars, I'll leave that to someone else to test.
well back when I was in the field every day, we used to run across Cottonmouths and copperheads all the time. Never did run across to many rattlers though and glad of it. tell ya, those copperheads are just mean. They'll chase after you
I bet you did see a bunch of snakes Don...by Monster Hunter
Hard to work knowing a darn copper head or cotton mouth could be under foot...the meanest snake I've seen here is a cotton mouth...rascals have an attitude at times...
got bitten by a moccasin when we lived in Baton Rouge. Dang thing came after me! He did not go the other way! I hate em, and they smell horrible.
I can smell a Cotton Mouth..by Monster Hunter
Those are some stinking rascals...
who also said she could smell them. Turned out, she was right. Thanks for liking my new hair style. I feel at least two pounds lighter. My hair was beginning to coil around my neck at night (a scary thought indeed). :O
Scary hair...by Monster Hunter
Shave that head RR and you will end that problem...
o my goodness, that was funny!
Yep, downright nasty smelling critters.
Nasty dispositions too!
Yep, downright nasty smelling critters.
Nasty dispositions too!
Sounds like both my ex wifes LOL
This is what makes a bite badby Grumpy
Imagine trying to walk out even 1 mile if this happens..... This is what EMS providers are taught to look for during transport.
Bites: What makes Timber rattlesnakes in the southeast particularly dangerous is that
the venom component that causes mass blood pressure drop in the first hour of the bite. Medical practitioners will recognize this as hypovolemic shock aka container failure, and in severe envenomations the patient may be unresponsive pressures as low as 50 to 60mm/Hg systolic, vomiting, stomach cramping and diarrhea, and muscular twitching throughout the entire body. These are all signs of systemic envenomation, ominous sign is bleeding from the gums, an indication that the blood is thinning. The mechanism for this can be either a direct reduction of platelets (thrombocytopenia), or a reduction in blood fibrinogen levels.
are long and cold but the upside is we don't have those tropical type critters and bugs that you folks have. The only things here that can hurt you up here are over 200 lbs.
And meat eaters!!!!!! LOL n/tby Grumpy
about most of all are among the tiniest-the skeeters!
Good post Grumpy. The invenomation causes systemic organ failure which leads to all of the symptoms you discribed. My best advice, any time you are out in an area prone to these critters, wear snake boots or chaps. I have both and use them religiously.
Well I know one thing D...by Monster Hunter
When out snooping around I couldn't take my eyes off of the ground thinking about those Copper-toothed rattle moccasins...
I will NEVER go out without my Snakechaps.I wear my Steel toed shoes and Snakechaps Every time I go out.If I can ,I will have me a Machete at my side. ALL Water Moccasins will die at my hands.I have experienced them too often and their aggression towards anything that moves.A copperhead will usually want to leave when approached but them Moccasins wanna fight.A Rattler is good eats and the rattle is always a novelty ,so if they are big enough or too aggressive,then I will make a meal of them(Tastes like Chicken). I did experience a situation once where as a handful of Moccasins went under my legs and was just curious then left after a while.I stayed motionless the whole time.They were younger snakes thought I have had young ones bite at me.I have never been bitten and don't plan on it,those Chaps have saved me several times.I have never run into LARGE Rattlers and don't really know if they could penetrate the chaps,thems is sum mighty big toofys ya got Mr. Rattler.
Never owned any...by Monster Hunter
Thought about it then again I'm pretty careful what I walk in and through...I stay out of brush piles and watch where I step in the tall grass around water during the warmer months...but I would suggest to own and wear them while out and about...
The pair of Chaps I have were demonstrated at a Buck-O-Rama several yeas ago. An idiot was standing in a pit of rattle snakes that were constantly stiking him. It was insane. I immediately went and bought a pair. Since I bought my snake boots, I don't wear them as much unless I'm going in a really snakey environment such as a swamp (moccosins) or mountain area (rattlers).
That would have done it for me Big D...by Monster Hunter
Excellent sales technique...
Jim I was out in the garden watering the plants this evening when I knew all at once I wasn't along and didn't have the camera with me. I heard the limbs being broken and the all to familiar grunts, I didn't look I just kept watering the plants then all at once I hollered at it told it to leave me alone then it got quiet, so i'm thinking they are back, Ive been taken food out of the freezer and putting it out by the shed and its gone in no time i guess it could be any other animal getting it but i think its them please tell Nellie we are all doing OK. I read her post asking about us, TY Nellie see u soon Jim.

Here's what they do or did at Ms. Francis home...by Monster Hunter
I just walked the area where this Monster is standing...yes I did hear a few subtle noises...something like a person clearing their throat and smaller limb snaps but...I've been doing this a long time and know that what they want is for me to look in the direction of the noise...once you look...game over...
I have several pictures similar to the one below and they're on photo bucket but so are hundreds of other pictures I've posted over the years...and I was told not long ago I didn't share...
BTW...Monster is standing about 100 yards away from me when I noticed it, him or she standing there...ducked down and moved without me knowing the direction it left...
It sure seems like there is a heck of allot of monsters there. I would move out of the neighborhood it was me.
According to the so called "experts"...by Monster Hunter
Population would be around 3 to 4 thousand...personally I think there's that many in Louisiana...pretty easy to find a batch of critters if you know what you're doing...
I believe there are many more than the so called"experts" say there are too!
Thanks for asking. That damn chemo had me down but I am getting stronger. I will be going back next month for more tests and exams, not fun. I wish I could get out but can't. I read the posts all the time, but I just couldn't respond, too weak to type.
Good to hear...by Monster Hunter
Hopefully you'll kick that cancers butt...we will pray for you...
Game cameras...why do we have problems with pictures of Monsters...by Monster Hunter
My best guess is they know what they are or maybe know something just ain't right about them...could be the trigger device they hear or they see the supposedly IR invisible flash...yeah, just because the camera promotes the IR doesn't mean you and possibly all Monsters can't see the flash...
Do Monsters see the cameras?...apparently they saw mine...I hung this off a trail facing an area where we have seen Monsters and saw many tracks...notice the stick leaned up against the camera...I didn't lean that stick on my camera...
I have been thinking about how to proceed since game cameras and even my "upgraded" camera doesn't seem to work well.
The monsters seem to wait for me to turn before they move. When I look in their direction they are perfectly still and blend into the environment like a shadow. If I am 40 yards/120 feet or more the pictures won't come out clear on my camera.
I have video of the anomaly on the next two pictures. It's not in the video at all then it is between the two trees. Then it changes position and stays as it is in the picture below.
This is a blown up area with an anomaly:
This is the same area but the picture was taken the year before:
This picture was taken in 2012 in the first clearing.The anomaly is actually from a video still. I passed within feet of the anomaly and did not see it but caught it on video. This on the video looks to be the size of a child. This is the edge of the first clearing. If you look at the first picture in the series it would be out of frame far right. I am actually glad I did not see it since mom was probably very close nearby:
This is the video still of the anomaly:
How do we get a clear picture without standing within touching (or tearing off of my limbs) distance?
In the last photo, I think I see a face looking back at you. Am I correct?
And, for a shot of BF, it's pretty clear.
There is evidence to suggest that there are one or two small ones and 2-3 larger juveniles along with a mature female that I have a decent picture of below. They stay in or at least I have taken video and photo evidence of them in the first clearing. A group of males stay in an area across the creek.
Last year I took pictures of this which suggests smaller ones are learning to cross the fence:
The sticks on the fence made the height of the fence low enough for something the size of a toddler to cross.
June is the best time for activity here and Monster Hunter is correct it is because that is when the foliage is thickest. The monsters may get VERY close.
In June 2011 I took this picture of the female the location of which was actually in between the first and second clearing:
This is the female blown up and with markers. There is three anomalies. One is at the top of the head and looks like a small hand. One is on the side of the neck of the mature female and one is in the front. the one in the front I think is a newborn
Remember how well they blend in:
and without the markers:
That's very clear! Interesting ape-like face.
Take some tips from the Pro's.
Get the sun shade of your lens on it. Even if there is no sun, it actually protects from the rain getting on your lens, and it is humid everywhere anyway, so it is a good idea to have it set
Get a camera that is very good at high ISOs and be prepared to push to ISO 3200. If you can do more than that with minimal noise, good for you
For close up, underexpose by -2/3EV to -1EV. A gorilla is a dark subject so your metering system will likely think it needs to overexpose it (this is opposite to shooting something white like the snow where the metering might be fooled and tend to underexpose). I suspect sometimes you may need to push to -2EV, but setting it to -2/3EV is a safe bet for close up.
Get a zoom lens with stabilization. A 70-200 f/2.8 lens is good (you can even add a 1.4x TC), so is a 70-300 f/3.5-5.6. Again, gorillas will be close.
Do not take a 400mm fixed or you will regret it. Foliage can be dense, you have very little leeway to move around to position yourself and if youre in a group of 8 people, good spots will also be limited.
Use Aperture Priority (AE). If you shoot at f/2.8 at 200mm or close, use spot focus to know what you want to be sharp (typically the eyes) personally I found shooting f/4 to f/7.1 with dynamic focus (or sometimes spot) being more adequate in relative close up so that the whole face is sharp, but that might be just me.
Use spot metering for face close up. I did all my shots using matrix metering (evaluative on Canon) and it seems it did a reasonably good job on the D700, but I regret not having done a comparison.
In case of doubts, you can try to bring another body with a lens such as a 24-70 to get wider shots or for the in and out of the trek. I personally found it too cumbersome and it never left the bag which was stored a few hundred meters away. It is easier to have a pocket camera.
Do not think youll be able to swap lens on location. This is hardly the place to do so
Forget the monopod yet the tripod in most places this is really less than ideal, youre in the middle of branches, bush, uneven terrain, things are constantly changing, youngsters gorillas may come toward you and you need to keep your distance, so its not like it is a fashion photo-shoot.
Know how to setup your ISO sensitivity settings and be prepared to change it. The 2nd day, youngsters were moving all over the place, so I changed it to up to ISO 3200 with minimal shutter speed of 1/400. The 3rd day I was still using this setting but as gorillas were more static, I could have easily set minimal shutter speed to 1/250 or even 1/125 and thus would have had shots with lower noise.
Stop shooting and enjoy the moment, gorillas have very human facial expressions and youngsters playing are pretty funny.
If you do not have a DSLR with video, it can be handy to have a pocket camera recording in HD and use from time to time to get some short clips.
Listen to the guide and do what he says. If you look like you know what youre doing with the camera and he feels youre a sensible individual he will think about you and get you in the best positions first, even cutting some obstructing foliag
I may have to translate some of this to extrapolate it to my meager gear.
I have been running 6-10 of these things for years in monkee land.i have come to my own conclusion that 1) they see some sort of beam that our eye cannot or 2) they hear it.
all of the possibilities are hated by them. they don't like them and don't want them around. I have some that have been beaten off the trees or something placed around it to obscure it.
for months I dealt with a feed barrel being demolished for hours every night and even during the day. I finally gave up trying to sort it out.
I haven't had a game camera destroyed...yet...by Monster Hunter
But did have a barrel feeder beat to a pulp...and many of my PVC feeders cut or tore down and toted off in the thickets...one PVC feeder in the bottoms was torn down and had limbs stacked across it...
One time a Monster from OK came down and broke my limb I had a feeder hung on...fortunately Barry took him back to where he came from before he could do any more damage...
I noticed one of my cameras is a little more noisy than the other one. The great picture of the coyote I got... she looked in the direction of the camera... then the flash. She heard it activate. The trick would be to conceal the camera so the monsters couldn't see or hear it. How about this thought...the ladies have that old shed building on their property...how about mounting the camera inside the thing with the camera aimed through a cut peep hole. Nutty idea I know. It's very aggravating that these monsters are so smart...the trick is to outsmart them. But how? That is the million dollar question.
for sure. There have been very few Trail camera pics that I'm aware of but there have been a few and they weren't that good. If you look at alot of trail camera pics, you'll see deer, bear and all sorts of critters sniffing the camera or looking dead into it close up. they just simply don't care or are not smart enough to care about having their picture taken. These Monsters do care and they are a heck of alot smarter than the normal forest animals. One thing I've noticed when folks put out trail cams. They just strap them to a tree in full view of anything that is really looking for them. Think the combination of that, human scent on the camera and mechanical sounds from the cameras give their location away
there are two things at play here. There's the camp that says bf know cameras are there that's why we can't get a photo. Then there are those that do get a trail cam shot of a bf but it's blurry. If they know they are there, why did we capture the ones on a trail cam that ended up blurry? Doesn't make sense to me...
The "monsters" are a lot smarter than they have been given credit for in the past.
M.K. has a video up that had the camera pointed backwards into a mirror of some type. That seemed to work, we may have to get super creative to get some results.
Game camera photo at a distance...by Monster Hunter
After trailing this bunch I kind of figured out how they left a bedding area and then returned after several days...I hid the camera behind a cedar where they couldn't see it until activated...I also poured about 20 pounds of corn on the ground, out in the open, to hopefully get their attention to come look it over...the critter to the right of the picture and three to the left, not in this photo, activated the camera...this bunch is headed to one of their bedding areas which was behind a pond...
Reading all the posts...
I'm kinda leaning on the side of " all of the above!"
First and foremost, as Monster and Timber and the others have stated in the past...a researcher is more than likely busted as soon as he gets into the area! He's watched and followed and they observe him placing and setting the cam, no matter how stealthy and sneaky! They know it's there!
Second: I believe and can't say to what degree this is...but these animals see infrared super super clear! Way beyond what we may think is reasonable. At night it would almost be a batman beacon it would shine so bright!
Third: If they're trailing a deer or hog, which in turn activates the cam, either in infrared or flash...the system is busted again! I and others have some distant pics which were taken from a game cam that show what looks like a monster or something in the distance, but clearly another animal set off the trigger for the photo.
These d^%$ animals seem to know what distance to stay from the front end of a cam!
I'm starting to think they're smarter than the average Cajun! LOL
I believe you to be right Mr. Phelps...by Monster Hunter
I always suspicioned Monsters followed me around watching my every move to see what I was doing...I've heard limbs snap, have actually seen movement and have taken pictures of what I thought was Monsters blending into the nearby foliage while hanging cameras...But even Monsters make mistakes...when I placed the camera getting the above picture the Monsters were out of town partying...
This is all you'll see when the Monsters are blending in...by Monster Hunter
Ms. Francis took this picture with one of those throw away cameras...
Same spot...different day...by Monster Hunter
that may be the ( or one) answer! The cheapie cameras are TOO cheap to have any gadgets, electrical beepers or flashing, humming or strobing of any type. The ladies take out the cam and click, they get a shot with no forewarning of hi-tech stuff which may emit any sign. Just a thought.
Good thought Mike...by Monster Hunter
Monsters are not for warned by seeing or hearing anything...makes sense...
For about $30 you can get a 360 degree attachment to your Iphone. It's be real good when walking around down there since they like to follow you
Check out the vid of it
That's a neat piece of equipment...but...by Monster Hunter
This time of year here it would be useless since IMO Monsters are in the thickets...to much foliage...but winter time...nice...
Thanks for sharing Don...
And yes I have an IPhone...by Monster Hunter
but after watching the video...battery life might be a problem along with attaching it to something other then using your hand...I guess taking random pictures it would be fine but I seldom would be in an area open enough to get anything other then a picture of bright green foliage...but...I might have to get me one for the winter...
There is no doubt in my mind that they know I am in the area long before I can get into the first clearing. I think from the video and picture evidence they are watching me. I have found "dimples" in the area within a 20-30 yards or so from where I park my car.
This is what I am calling a "dimple":
This particular one was in a place that could see the perimeter of the field I was walking. Three of me could fit in there lying down.
As for the pictures, I am thinking about putting something facing behind me, mounted to my backpack frame that either shoots video or takes pictures in the opposite direction I am going.
I am also considering planting a very small video camera in the first clearing with a few distractors around it. Maybe some fruit and a music box that can play after I leave within proximity to the camera mounted in the foliage. The camera I found is tiny (2X3 inches). Does anyone have other suggestions?
IMO...Monsters have these hides...by Monster Hunter
Close to trails, lanes and roads to monitor who comes and goes into their territory...
As far as camera ideas...I've used everyone I can think of from placing and hiding them ground level to high in trees...
I can't remember where I watched this...it was on one of those many tv documentaries on bigfoot...but it was briefly being discussed by a researcher giving the interview! He theorized and stated that he was fairly positive that while the bulk of the colony bedded down in a specific area...posted out away from the group were sentinels acting as early warning alarms... I'm wondering if these little spots like Circle is showing, are holding these single observers? I'm wondering too, about daylight sightings that are single, and if these animals are the early warning observers??
Yes IMO they are...by Monster Hunter
A few years back the lane leading up to the field from our old camp site on the rock road by the culvert there were more then several located...several folks saw Monsters while walking back and forth...if you all remember it was about 3/8's of a mile from the camp site to the small field...the lane itself was covered in a canopy of trees...freaking awesome during the day and scary as hexx at night...I have got to get my old crashed computers hard drives and see if I can rescue the pictures...I'm telling you...standing on one end it looked like a tunnel...
these sentinels are "single" young males or females who have been given a task because they are not a mated pair (alphas) and/or have no young to tend. I KNOW there is no way to know this for sure but it's as good an explanation as any, considering that the "experts" believe juveniles remain within the "family" circle for a longer period of time.
What do you all think?
You could be right RR...and a good observation...by Monster Hunter
What I've seen I lean toward it being younger males...had one on the west side I saw on more then several occasions...he would sit on a berm that over looked a clear cut...from his vantage point there was not any way you could slip up on him...I can't remember who all saw him but know several that had never had a sighting saw him...when I would pull up to the old camera box he would cross the fire lane at times...personally I had a close up encounter with him...about 7 to 8 ft. tall and maybe 350 pounds...built like an extreme body builder...he was in the area I had a feeder and made damn sure I saw him...walked away at about a 45 degree angle in some timber...
to my hotspots I have been experimenting with taking 3 different types of cameras. If I even have them around my neck, not even using them, I don't get as much response as I do if I just go in with a backpack on. I don't think they are psychic but I do think they are VERY observant. Always get a knock on the way in and out though. If I'm carrying fruit or grain, I get stomps or something like that b4 I reach my final stopping point.
I always had my camera in a pocket...by Monster Hunter
Hear or see movement I'd have to fish that sucker out to take a picture...do you have any pictures of Monsters slipping around you while out snooping around?...
I have a few that maybe look a little like Circle's but not many. They are so dang good at blending and camo its just hard for me to tell what I have and what I don't. But those sounds they make are at times pretty unmistakeable. Like you told me awhile back, they seem to play games to try and get you to look or pay attention and as soon as you do they stop altogether. At least that's what they seem to do over here in Bienvlle. Sometimes they will make a very deliberate(seemingly) response to something I say or do and if I just ignore it and go on about my business as if I don't hear it they will keep doing stuff. I have had some results when I play my flute or some soft mellow music-they seem to at times mimic the drumming I play as long as I keep it going but will automatically stop when I turn it off or stop playing. They will give off slight grunts or moans but until I get a good parabolic I just can't be too sure what I think I am hearing and what I am imagining. I am in the process of finding out what type of recording (audio) device would be good and what type of parabolic I need. They will(or something will) take/accept apples but nothing else so far. Ignore bananas and oranges but will at times show affinity for certain types of pears along with apples.
This is a very sensible approach. And it is also a very admirable way of sharing what you have found. That is to say that you are open to the possibility that some of whay you hear may be your imagination. I have no doubt at all that you are having activity, but sometimes I think members of our "research Profession" portray everything that is seen or heard as a monster. I think this hurts both the credibility of what we do and who we are when everything that we see or hear in the woods is a monster. I don't see a deer everytime I go deer hunting and I don't think it is feasible for me to se a monster everytime I go monster hunting. Thanks for sharing your finding and keep up the good work.
out camping at his deercamp which is by a few thousand acres of IP paper company land. We were camped on a dam overlooking a lake and had a small fire going all night. At about 130am I started hearing something outside the tent and down a gulley. Too muffled and quiet to make it out but sounded almost like 2 guys talking. A little while later I heard one "knock." This was answered and went the entire way around the lake , a knock answered every hundred feet or so and continued all the way around the lake.When you are the only one awake you start questioning your hearing and sanity. I was thinking, Am I really hearing this or wanting to hear it? It was SO subtle, yet evident-I KNOW I heard it! Just weird. It just made me feel odd. This area deserves more attention I think.
was the same area that I killed a 19 pound gobbler on a few weeks ago. My first Turkey hunt and I think I'm hooked, it waas great! I got eatn alive by chiggers tho!
Thank you folks. For keeping this site up and running.
Please keep up the good work.
People used to post here and other forums...by Monster Hunter
Now...Face Book or twitter...or both...
still post here as well as on FaceBook. But I don't Twitter (and you can't make me. LOL)
the BS associated with other researchers keeps alot away. also, alot of researchers just get busier and busier with life.
I don't use facebook or twitter. I've been reading the MB post for years and love hearing what folks had to say. The MB is my source for up to date info and knowledge on Bigfoot/monster news...not to mention other hot topics like DonDon's fishing news. Please keep the MB up and running!
I do know folks are busy...by Monster Hunter
Kids playing baseball/softball...the job, yard and work around their homes but I also know there are those who still get out and do some field work...the problem here where I poke around...everything is a bright green and its thick so seeing something is difficult but the good...Monsters know it's thick and green so they'll slip up on you closer...
Nothing to look at here, move along!
How are they doing? Anything new going on with them and the monsters?
I was with them yesterday...by Monster Hunter
All of us went to an area I haven't been before...unbelievable place that I knew was here in Louisiana but have only driven through...down on a creek, mid afternoon, it was completely quiet as we scouted around...we decided to leave and as we were getting in the cars I heard something that sounded like a tree frog...the ladies then heard a couple of taps...Ms. Shirley walked down the lane a piece across the bridge where I walked earlier...she said something threw a small rock in her direction...area was completely quiet and still as we left...
Driving around I saw quite a few large trails, an area where there are some caves and believe it or not a creek. a wide creek, that had white water which reminded me of the Buffalo River...
The ladies homes...its been quiet but this time of the year it usually is quiet here in our area...both ladies report hearing odd items at times but haven't had any sightings...our rainy colder weather has kept them inside...
They plan on riding around using the video camera to see if they can get some good video...be hard to do since the foliage is thick and bright green...but they sure will give it a whirl...
Them new knes working out for hiking around?
I often think about them and admire how they can handle having monster activity like they do around their home. They're TOUGH! The quietness of the area you were in should have given you a clue that perhaps you were not alone with the ladies. Please keep us posted if they have any luck with their video camera! It was good hearing from you...I hope you are enjoying your new knees now.
Those new knees...by Monster Hunter
are doing great...little to no pain...wish I would have done this years back...
The new area we were in...the ladies, Ms. Shirley's husband Doug and the two men that were screamed or roared at...we began our little trip around 1 PM with the two men showing us around the vast area...600,000 acres...
Another point of interest the two men had at night...two lights, in the woods, followed them for approximately 20 minutes...

He's the axxhole that allowed an outsider to talk crap on our organization...
Hey jim have y'all seen the new trailer for his movie......biscardi is in it,Wayne and Dallas r in it all hopped up on something,then hoaxer is in it with his big arse hat you know the best terd tracker in the world....I cannot believe the film maker even did this film.I wish EB was back to deal with this guy lol ole Erik and him would have killed each other lmao.....anyway hope y'all r all OK...I'm not gonna post the video since it is really a joke and made me vomit.
Look its the worlds best terd hunter......
He is a stand in for DonDon.
As a fellow Georgia researcher and also a member of the Public Safety field, I too feel like I can speak about this waste of time loser. He is a joke, a disgrace, a phoney, and a really poor underwear model. Every time he is mentioned in this or any other forum, he gets exactly what he wants... attention/publicity. If we could all take a vow to never mention him or his "research" ever again, then entire BF world would be better off. Heck, I would rather talk about MM than this XXXhole. As for me, from this point forward, he does not exist. Wow. I feel better already.
to show my face ever in a public forum or otherwise if I had done the things he has. Joke, disgrace-I'm being too nice for this impotent squid.
and it recently reported that "tighty-whitey" and his wife are under investigation by the FBI for fraud--selling memberships to his web-sight, saying he was giving that money to the homeless, not giving ANY of the dues to charity, and bragging that membership dues was buying Mr. T-W a Corvette. The FBI came once, was told to leave, came back with a warrant and confiscated Mr. T-W's computers. SO...the plot thickens and someone(s)may soon be arrested.
As my granny said: "oh, what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive."
You know what they say about KARMA . . . it is an ex-wife. Oh, I meant Bxxxx!
19 inch tracks...YouTube by MK Davis...by Monster Hunter
The below track was 19 or 19 1/2 inches in length...by Monster Hunter
But one late afternoon I cast a female track, presumably, at a bedding area...stayed until midnight waiting for the material to dry but cold weather and to much water I had to leave it over night...next morning I drove down to pick this track up and there was another larger broader impression fairly close and since it wasn't castable I took a picture...I placed my heel, I thought at the back of this impression and snapped a 35mm film picture knowing it was a large impression...I thought I had my heel at the end of the impression but after looking at the picture I wasn't even close...by my guesstimation the impression was 24 inches in length...
Here's in-lies my problem...I can't imagine a critter with a 19 inch foot that can hide without being found let alone a booger with a 24 inch foot...seems impossible doesn't it...
BTW...the two tracks below are the first we found at MC...no telling how many I walked and stepped over not paying any attention...
Penny just got out of Marshall hospital. She went in Sunday and found out her Diabeties came back with vengence, Her blood sugar was 695. she came home Friday and is doing much better! But she will be on insulin from now on. We have started a healthy,Diabeties diet now yuck but health before alo of food right. Please keep her in ur prayers
That is some good news...by Monster Hunter
Glad she's made it back to the house and the diet...they always suck...the list I'm not to eat is the list of food I do eat...
Hey Dave let penny know I'm thinking of her and hope for a full recovery.....take care bud.....

don't put any credibility in this.
but right off the bat, he smoked that cigarette like he was from the Willie Nelson tribe. could be the treacheotomy, though.
but who am I, just a boy from Oklahoma.
Oh c'mon guys...for crying out loud...by Monster Hunter
His name is Red Elk...a North American Indian...no way he would lie about levitation, speaking the language of a BF, having one down town walking the streets and having three, not one or two but three recorded talking...having a problem locating the tape but it's in the house somewhere honest Injun...
is pretty white. much whiter than most I have seen.
do you know how much a buffalo hide Teepee costs to have custom made?
my sons scout troop bought one a couple of years ago.
One web site...by Monster Hunter
the troop had a benefactor who paid for it all. I was stunned when they told me it cost like 7 grand for a TeePee.
was browsing you tube yesterday, and wasted an hour or so watching this rick dyer guy talk to his "followers" about the body he claims to have.....he said that the ear openings on the body were about the size of a quarter, and that there were also 2 additional openings in the nose where it meets the face.....he also said it has 2 rows of teeth.....waste of time, only thing I agreed with him on was when he said it wasnt a man, it wasnt an ape, it was a monster was only way he could describe it.
I will be very shocked if this guy produces a body on 4/30 like he says he is

money and a pretty shrewd way for some free advertisement...does anyone even drink Pabst beer?...
PBR all the way! hahah...good stuff!
LOL...by Monster Hunter
Hardly...good stuff...I didn't think they even made it now?...live and learn...
have a bar around the corner has 24 oz mug on tap for $1......and you get what you pay for
they quit making Pabst Blue Ribbon 20 yrs ago when my grandpa passed. He's the only one I knew that drank it.
I think another brand bought it, and just uses the name.....I had one last week, pretty rockgut stuff....
has historically claimed its flagship beer was renamed Pabst Blue Ribbon following its win as "Americas Best" at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.
This is the original Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. Nature's choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America's Best in 1893.
Quote from PBR label, referring to the award it received at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition.
Whether the brand actually won an award in 1893 is unclear. Some contemporaneous accounts indicate that many vendors were frustrated by the fair's refusal to award such prizes. One account says that the only prizes awarded by the executive committee were bronze medals, in recognition of "some independent and essential excellence in the article displayed," rather than "merely to indicate the relative merits of competing exhibits.
Sales of Pabst peaked in 1977, when they reached 18 million barrels; by 2001, the brand's sales were below a million barrels, 90% less than the peak. While there is some disagreement about the origin of Pabst Blue Ribbon, it has been proven by beer historians that it is an American and not a German beer.
Hey found something interesting got a link.if you like live wallpaper they have one and it has a bigfoot sign and footprints.here is the download and YouTube link so u can see what I mean.it's man awesome app....not selling or advertising anything just thought it was pretty cool and free...

Unusual track...by Monster Hunter
What is your opinion of what it is?
At first the below crossed my mind but...by Monster Hunter
then the toes appeared to long and narrow...Ms. Shirley took this photo telling me it was wide but not long...looks like possible finger marks and maybe a foot track at the bottom covering half the hand...toes will be to the left covering half of what I think could be finger marks...Just hard to tell when you're not there to see with your own eyes and measure...
I can see what appears to be four fingers and the thumb on far left side of pic looks like the three middle fingers took the brunt of the weight....interesting thanks for posting.
Looks like a hand print to me.
Just by the pic. Looks like a hand
Hey Scott from Philly...check this out...by Monster Hunter
Mike lives down the road about 7 miles from me...he and I hook up at times and do some poking around...good man that had an experience that scared the crap out of him...this kind of reminded me of your sighting and experience...
eerily close....except there was no way in hell I was coming out of that stand until I knew it was gone....The "sinister" comment kind of sums it up....this guy was there to eat, probably feed it's family, and no human, matter if he had a gun or not was going to stop him.....I felt I was more safe up a tree defensive wise than on ground....
I know I had been around these things before, just didnt know what they were. several times had been out coon hunting in same area, and smelled same smell, but old timers I was with said it was a skunk, and just didnt want to alarm me.....I know several times at the camp we had a walk in cooler (was actually the back of an old ice deliver truck) to store deer until they were taken to be butchered, where something (I rember old timers really pissed off) had opened up the cooler and taken a few of the deer at night (big hand prints on it, it had a door latch like an 18 wheeler trailer had).....howls always brushed off as coyote....I had been around them my whole life, never seen one, always brushed whatever off as something else.....think I would have preferred to be innocently stupid by never seeing one....do wonder often what would have happened had I busted him in the head that day, and know I should have
Dang Jim, very interesting sighting, He had to be pretty shook up! I would love to meet him.
We'll hook up...by Monster Hunter
Give me a call...I'm usually out and about several times a week...
What ya think?
Kind of looks like...by Monster Hunter

Thanks for sharing partner...
Bout 2 hours from my house. Trying to get with the folks now to go check out the area
Good deal...by Monster Hunter
Let us know what you find out...
before. To me it appears to be moving very fast. You can see right through what looks like an arm because of the fast movement. I've had moose and deer run past our game cams and they aren't blurry like this. I'd say bird or more likely a night insect. Sure looks like an ape type figure though.
an insect I'm booking the first flight to New Zealand!
I Was looking at Bobbie Short's website and viewed footage of some guys recording and following possible Bigfoot tracks in Utah. There are three parts to it. Here is the youtube link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPVmSp0TmXA Was interesting to me. Don't know if this was posted on here or not...
I haven't had a sighting yet for sure. When i got my first computer back before the internet when it was only bulletin boards you dialed up. I started trying to bust this as a hoax. Finally back in 2004 i went to McCurtain County in OK on JULY 4TH.I had signed up on the Kiamichi site and read the stuff. On a spur of the moment we went and about 5-6 pm that evening we were back in the hills and had no idea where we were at. We camped next to a creek and within 15 minutes of unpacking i started hearing the howls. I had a can of tiger poop with me and we popped the top. Within about 5 minutes or so a big rock landed in the creek right next to Dave that was with me.
This stuff is not a HOAX!
I too have had giant stones hurled into camp, that terrible stench, growls and even had something walked through the camp and run it's hand alongside the tent while I was in it while camping way, way in from the main road in the Kiamichi mountains. Also heard and saw some there too. Very spooky!
Kiamichi Mountains...by Monster Hunter
IMO...full of Monsters...
people have asked me how many are out there and to be perfectly honest I don't even want to imagine how many are in Eastern Ok, Eastern TX and Western AR and LA.
I've been asked many times about Monster population...by Monster Hunter
IMO...they're everywhere and a lot more then the so called experts claim there are...This part of Louisiana is covered up with boogers and what's funny...these so called researchers can' find them...
so many rivers/creeks/lakes that connect each other in south ark/north la, east tx and ok, they could be moving fairly great distances undetected.....
I think far, far more than "experts" think
Let me tell you what I think Scott from Philly...by Monster Hunter
I think you are absolutely correct...
Add some railroad tracks and at night you can have unnoticed travel for very long distances.
Rail road tracks...by Monster Hunter
I think most wouldn't think as these trackways as excellent travel routes...good post Versatile...
Monster Hunter; and others who would like to respond.
When was the first time you every saw, or heard about the Bigfoots,
monsters in your state or just heard about them.
First sighting was early 90's...by Monster Hunter
I was a total non-believer...grew up hunting and fishing in the Sabine river bottoms and can't remember seeing or hearing any strange critters but I did hear of some seeing boogers...
My oldest son and I drove back to his perforated feeder I put up for him one night...a five gallon bucket that seemed to be always empty but not any sign of deer...as we drove into the field there was a man shaped figure side ways to us shaking the feeder...we watched for a few seconds when this thing realized there were head lights shining on it at about forty yards...it looked at us, large red eyes, and bolted on all fours into a nearby hawthorn thicket...
Then nothing again until late 90's, early 2000...
Should say 1975 then early to mid 90's, then nothing until 1999/2000. From 2000 until now has been a wild ride...Before then knew they existed but knew nothing about them...
I started having strange things happen in the woods around 90. my first visual was 92-93 I think.
Heard about them all my life,was interested but skeptical since I hunted and fished in central Texas all my life. First sighting was in spring of 2003,after finding a footprint at the end of my porch, and hearing strange vocals and something runninig along porch. Wife had a sighting in East Texas inlate 70s
This was what happened to me. http://www.gcbro.com/MSnewton0001.html
I saw one for the first time October of a little over a year ago but have heard them MANY times
a few weeks back but it was only my BOOTS. BWAAA HAHAHA
Same place you took the pictures Scott?...by Monster Hunter
Or in a different area?...
The pictures were 150 miles and 4 or 5 years down the road.
And Don's boots DO smell like a stinky BF!
Alright then...by Monster Hunter
That means you've been dealing with Monsters for a while...
May 25, 2009...11:20 am lasted 10-12 min.
Was that the momma and little one Darrell?...by Monster Hunter
or another Monster or Monsters?...
Mom and a small one. Mom was collecting tall grass handing to the small one, it would go into a small grove of trees then come back for more. The kid decided to have some fun and through a arm load into the wind and the mom back handed the crap out of it.
Will never for get it.
Around 1972, give or take a year, a friend of mine at school told me he had seen a white one near Oil Center: about a mile from the South Canadian River in Oklahoma. I went to his house one weekend and we drove all over the pasture on minibikes looking for it. Finally at dusk it found us about 100-150 yards across an open field standing next to a tree in the treeline and holding onto or leaning against the tree with it's right hand. It was solid white all over. We returned to the tree the next day about noontime and did some rough measurements and decided it was around 7 feet tall or taller. I didn't see another until around 1999 when a dram colored one with Byblos reflective light green eyes followed me out of the woods while muzzleloader hunting. We found the tracks of two different bigfoot afterwards: both with tracks about 15 inches long. One had three toes on each foot, while the other one had 5 toes on each foot.
1982, twice (once in summer/once in deer season), both within 25-30 yards, Quachita River bottoms close to Calion, AR
Hey Scott from Philly...by Monster Hunter
Did you get a good long look or just a glance?...
a LONG look......took fish off stringer while grandfather and I were in boat in middle of pond.....around 25-30 yards when i was in a deer stand, had just shot a doe, and what i think was either same monster (was thanksgiving of same year) or his twin brother, came from behind tree , grabbed it and took off....
there is a report in the reports, union county ark.....
bobby sent me a drawing once, was same guy, but teeth were not pointed, were all flat like ours.....I saw them when it sort of snarled at me when it grabbed deer, and I had scope right on its head (I got impresion was like go ahead, but you miss, or dont kill me, and you wilol be a grease spot)....
I am not ashamed to say second scared the pee out of me, so much I never have deer hunted there again, and took more than a few years for me to go back to same spot....
never ever told a soul until I saw this site,a nd filed a report, and spoke with bobby on the phone....
I have a friend that experienced...by Monster Hunter
Something very similar...scared the crap out of him and yes it was his first sighting and no he wasn't into Boogers at the time...
Wasn't a sighting, but my first encounter I guess you would call it. Took me 4 yrs. to tell anyone about it. I would have thought you were nuts if you told me there were monsters in the woods before then.
Here's my report here:
Ken...I'm going to...by Monster Hunter
Kisatchie National Forest in a few weeks where there has been some vocals along with tracks found...let me know if you have the time to go...and yes Mr. Phelps you are invited as well as anyone who wants to join us...
Let me know when. I might be going up that way in a couple of weeks turkey hunting too.
I'll do it...N/T...by Monster Hunter
The first I ever heard of...by Monster Hubter
SheepSquatch was last night on a program I watched some of...do we have anyone belonging to the forum that knows anything more then I read below?...
I have problems after seeing what I have saying that what someone else has seen is BS, but this is as close as I have come......a monster with a sheep head? could be wrong, but sounds WAY out there...
I did think the part where the family unloaded on the little green guys was interesting though
I was switching back and forth...by Monster Hunter
To a baseball game only seeing where the cops showed up to look around...need to put the remote down and back away slowly I reckon...
no, but a very interesting read Jim.
hard to imagine a critter walking around that looks like that. The people on the show that had an ordeal with the critter sounded very truthful about it though.
Yes they did seem to be telling the truth...but...by Monster Hunter
I have a hard time believing they saw what they thought they saw...night time, scared with their adrenalin flowing... It is very possible they saw what others described and not what was there...
Animal Legal Defense Fund Sues to Stop Texas Bigfoot Hunt
April 1st, 2013
Parks and Wildlife Department Taken to Task for Greenlighting Sasquatch Slaughter
For immediate release
Megan Backus, Animal Legal Defense Fund
AUSTIN Today, the national nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) is filing a lawsuit against the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, requesting judicial review of the agency's May 2012 administrative finding that Bigfoot is an indigenous "nongame" species that can therefore be hunted without a permit. The Texas Administrative Procedures Act requires that administrative findings are "reasonably supported by substantial evidence." The suit alleges that the agency's designation is arbitrary and capricious due to a lack of credible evidence supporting its conclusion that the elusive primate is indigenous to the state of Texas, and cites a preponderance of evidence that the man-beast is instead native to Northern California.
Why are Texans messing with the yeti? Tex. Parks & Wild. Code § 67.001 defines "nongame" species as animals who are indigenous to Texas, not endangered, and not otherwise listed in any other part of the code. According to expert declarations accompanying today's lawsuit, the alleged evidence that Bigfoot is a Longhornmostly shaky, grainy videos of what appear to be humans in giant hairy ape costumescannot reasonably support the Department's finding. ALDF is also pursuing endangered species protections for the secretive simian, under Tex. Parks & Wild. Code § 68.00.
"Cryptozoological creatures like Bigfoot must not be deprived appropriate legal protections," says ALDF attorney Chris Berry. "The lack of credible evidence that Bigfoot is indigenous to Texas sets a clear legal prohibition on Sasquatch hunts in the Lone Star State."
wow! like they dont want them proven without a doubt to later protect them?
Can you prove the beast is a "Native Texan"...by Monster Hunter
" The Texas Administrative Procedures Act requires that administrative findings are "reasonably supported by substantial evidence." The suit alleges that the agency's designation is arbitrary and capricious due to a lack of credible evidence supporting its conclusion that the elusive primate is indigenous to the state of Texas, and cites a preponderance of evidence that the man-beast is instead native to Northern California."
So here's the deal...if it were considered a native Texas species the legislatures might consider a law that would protect the beast...but lack of supporting evidence and the fact that these legislatures think it's a hippie from California...shoot the sob...
I think it may have been an April Fools Joke. I saw an exert of Melba crying about it last night.
Yes it was...by Monster Hunter
and a pretty good one...
Sitting on the porch drinking coffee and you see shadows...by Monster Hunter
in the tree line that move and you know it ain't sun shadows...
A well used trail...by Monster Hunter
That leads from the pond to Ms. Francis property...the pond is right behind Ms. Shirley's home...
MH We have seen quite a few photos of critters at Ms Shirleys all pretty much in the same/spot or area. Have you seen any trampled down spots where they have stood for awhile and maybe a dung pile or so?
seen the videos this guy saschamoa has put out on youtube? Interesting if not faked.
could you give us a link?
I think I mis-spelled the guy's name . Try Saschamoua. He has about 130 or so videos and stills. Trying to entice a buyer for his area I think.
cant find his channel......can you send a link???
up his name on Youtube- I think the correct spelling is Saschamoua.
I found it...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unBdYmE-aJE&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Maybe I'm blind but I only saw shadows that were a few feet off of the ground.
You're not blind Big D...by Monster Hunter
I didn't see or hear anything I thought was significant...
say that. I didn't either!
What is the deal with this guy and a close-up shot of the ground? It sounds like the sound tracks have been added. Heck, one even sounds like a Nascar race.
I couldn't say. Some of his videos I think I may see things, others(most) I do not. I turn the sound down and look.
There are more beasts in Louisiana then Bigfoot...by Monster Hunter
Dang Jim, they need to be shot!
Yes I know along with...by Monster Hunter
That darn hole digging armadillo... I haven't seen him recently but from the size of the holes he must be a forty pounder...
Beavers are some destructive animals. Got them down here in the swamp too. Hard to get rid of. I'm always amazed at the dams they build. They have got to be the best engineers of the animal kingdom! You better have some heavy equiptment or some dynamite to destroy one of their dams.
I try to get a backhoe...by Monster Hunter
In close enough to destroy the dam but if the beasts live...you'll do it again...
The north creek at MC has always kept beavers busy...One night driving out a beaver pulling a rather large bush crossed right in front of my truck...bet that baby weighed in at fifty pounds...was down the embankment and in the water before I could get a shot...
I use to hunt those critters and break the dams for people who were having problems with them. If you sit near the dam after dark, they will come close enough for you to get a shot. They always check their dam every night. Sit very quietly with a flash light in hand. It works better with two people. When you see them swimming up, ready the gun, turn on the flash light, and if you can shoot accurately, no more beaver. Sit back down, be quiet, and after a bit others will show up. Repeat the steps above, and in a few nights time, your beaver problem is gone. As for breaking the dams, it is not as tough as it appears. They are built in layers, and they come apart faily easily if done by hand. You just have to treat it like pick-up sticks. You will get wet and muddy, but if you want the problem to go away, it is the best solution. I've used this method successfully dozens of times.
A man with experience...by Monster Hunter
And good advice...thanks Big D...
Was talking to Dondon about how different the forest is out here from back there. So here are a couple random pictures to illustrate it. Not sure where my big Redwood pictures are hiding......
I can smell my region.
I could never understand the rock throwing claims. Try hiding in that mess and accurately throwing a rock (underhand or overhand?) without being seen or the rock hitting something before getting to its target. I've tried it and it's pretty tough.
In the southeast, there are rocks aplenty to toss around.
Up here, not so much. There are rocks, just not all over the place like in the south.
Throwing them without being seen would be easy enough.....guess you would have to carry a handful around here....
Prehistoric looking. So many places to hide it's not even funny
Tough to navigate....by Monster Hunter
And difficult to investigate off trail...
My friend Daric and I made a short trailer for a Bigfoot movie we are hoping to create. It's for a contest where we can win $1 million to make the full film. It's a seriously suspenseful film and we hope to shed some positive light on Bigfoot and Cryptozoology. We want to give both of those topics the respect they deserve as they have been ridiculed in Bigfoot movies as of late.
Our trailer can be viewed at the following link: www.cinecoup.ca/thelink
We need votes, ratings and spreading the word about our film to help us make this short a reality.
Thank you for your time and feedback is greatly appreciated!
Oh Yeah...My kind of flick...by Monster Hunter
Guns, blood, guts and gory...
work too! Good luck to these young lads!
Here's an idea for a million dollars! First you gather up some scientists, and other wordly professionals in the field...fly them into a remote campsite somewhere on a lake...drop them off with a camera crew, let them sit around until the damn things start throwing rocks at the cabin, then all of them get scared straight and refuse to go outside, let them turn out all of the cabin lights like that makes them invisable...but then let the camera man who is the only brave soul apparently, go out by himself and have a look see! Then they all pile up in their plane the next day and fly back to civilization! CUT...PRINT!
been done before....watched it this week....an hour watsed in my life Ill never get back
you all know the one I'm talking about...the one with the fishing cabin and the bloody board with nails.
Some interesting "speculation" on Neanderthals from the BBC here.
"Neanderthals had significantly larger eye sockets - by an average of 6mm from top to bottom . . . . Although this seems like a small amount . . . it was enough for Neanderthals to use significantly more of their brains to process visual information."
That was an interesting read...by Monster Hunter
I'm not sure if I buy into all their claims but interesting...
When the word assume is used, it completely eliminates anything said from being considered hard fact or even presumable truth. Assumptions are based on beliefs, and beliefs are based on life experiences, and life experiences are directly corrolated to subjective things, such as climate, socio-economic factors, education levels, and so on. I wonder if I write an article based on my assumption that the large foot on a Bigfoot directly correlates to other appendages of its body being large, will it get published? You see where I'm going with this??? Intereting reading, but so are comics. Thanks for the post.
their demise was due to rampant same sex marriages. You're right, too many assumptions!
Would this person please contact me. I am in the same county and would like to talk to you about this.

Rough measurement of Long Neck...by Monster Hunter
I went down Friday to visit with the ladies and a couple of gentlemen that have had some rather unique and bizarre happenings in their area of interest...I plan on visiting their area as soon as I can get a few days to spend with them...
But this post is not about these two men it's about the estimated height of the long neck Monster in the below photo...by doing some rough estimating, from the top of the head to the building then from the roof angle to the front of the building I could get a fairly accurate measurement...and though not really surprised at the estimated overall height as much as I know I have never seen anything this tall in all my years of stumbling around...ten foot tall...that's 10 feet...
A good friend and trusted researcher tells me he has seen one estimated to be fourteen foot tall...now that's tall alright but to kind of verify check out the video MK has on YouTube where a extremely tall something walks out towards a barn...MK calls it the altercation...watch it and you'll see it is properly named...
Friday afternoon...by Monster Hunter
I'd been driving about 45 minutes headed home when I got a text from Ms. Shirley...they, both ladies, drove to a location where there has been ongoing activity for years...they got screamed at, heard some limbs breaking and heard something walking away from them...what spooked them was being screamed at that loud and during day light hours...oh they have heard many screams and howls but not anything during day light hours...neither saw anything...
Wow them poor ladies cant catch a break huh?
It appears it is standing on something but there was not anything there to stand on to get that high...no idea what either are...
A sasquatch-related species Loren Coleman dubbed "True Giants" has been described as 15-20 feet tall. However, I believe them to be reported solely in the remote areas of Northwest Canada. That's a healthy commute to the friendly climes of Louisiana!
I can attest to seeing a massive monkee in SE Oklahoma standing upright at less than 30 yards that scaled out to 13-15ft after we put a tape to the place it was standing to a limb it was grasping.
This PNW...BS has always been a pet peeve of mine. several researchers have basically put a patent on a sasquatch type creature and seem to always put some sort of a distinction on something they have in the PNW and they get pissy when they find out people in other places have them too.
the critter I saw was 12-15ft tall in excess of 1,500lb, bigger than any black angus bull I have ever ran thru a chute. he wasn't happy I was there and to tell you the truth, I wasn't too pleased he was there at the time. I had kind of scoffed at the thought of a 15fter out there. I know they are out there now.
personally, I think people actually give smaller details about these things to give them human like proportions and in reality they are larger that what people have stated they witnessed.
I have seen several 5-8 ft critters in the last 20 years with footprints ranging from 8-22 inches. I have never seen anything like the gigantic one that I saw that evening.
there are big ones all over.
Ive seen my fair share but not any...by Monster Hunter
I thought were over eight feet tall...found a 24 inch track once years back and would think that was a giant with a foot that big...I do firmly believe from qualified witnesses there are much taller Monsters that possibly haven't been seen or as woodswatcher mentioned...under estimated in size...interesting topic...now...any theories of where they came from?...
they could get that big and to be honest, in the back of my mind I kind of scoffed at it. Then I saw one that big. we even took a tape and measured where its shoulder was on a tree limb and it taped at roughly 12-12.5 where its shoulder was at the limb.
he was a brute, who had done alot to keep me out of an area I wanted to deer hunt. everytime he would place an obsticle or marker I would tear it down.
About how tall a semi trailer is. Next time you go under an overpass notice its posted clearence.
That would be a huge monster!! By the way I had two witnesses tell me thay saw 15 footers.
the most intense encounter I have had.
we knew it was huge by the tree's he was pushing over and wedging inbtween other trees to block our paths. we had seen his footprints.
I was no prepared for its size. height or width.
I had a muzzleloader on my ATV rack and the thought of stopping the ATV and grabbing it while headed downhill never went thru my mind. I figured stopping the 4wheeler would have antigonized him.
like i said, I've seen 8 and may one or 2 that went 10. it blew my mind to see one that went 13-4 ft.
A Kodiac male bear can weigh up to 1,500 lbs and reach a height of ten feet. A 13 to 15 ft. high bf defies logic. Maybe your big bf was standing on something?
and I did some bear research (black bear)in College.
the biggest Bull I ever saw was a behemouth of a Santa Gertrudis that went thru the stock yards one day. if you stood him up on his hind legs, he might have come close to being as tall as the monkee I saw. He was every bit as heavy. its mass was shocking. we taped the exact spot and limb he was under. I was floored.
was this monkee an anomaly? he is the only one I have ever seen this big and I have seen quite a few in about 5-6 different areas in Ok, Ar and La.
like you I scoffed at the idea of a critter that big. after that day, I believed the people that had told me things regarding the big ones.
keep an open mind. I have been in your shoes.
There have been several Grizzly bears recorded over 12 feet tall. There was even one killed by a hunter a few years ago that was found to have been shot several times with a pistol prior to when he killed it. It was over 13 feet tall. And after all, bears are not "designed" to be upright creatures, so to compare their height to that of a BF is like saying lemons are not as sweet as oranges. They are two different creatures. Just my opinion.
First time I saw that pic I thought that was a mighty tall whatever it is but I also thought that maybe that building is not as tall as it looks. BUT I've walked around that building and stood there and IMHO Monster Hunter is being conservative with his estimate of height. I think it might be a little taller than that!
There are quite a few pictures they take in about the same spot. Sure would help if they put up a stick with a known height.
Comparison picture...by Monster Hunter
Different time of the year but I am definitely in the picture...
I didnt measure it but that building looked to have your standard 8' walls, is probably a foot off the ground. I would say the peak is 4' higher than the wall height. So I would say the peak is about at 13' if that helps.
There is a slope from front to back of building...by Monster Hunter
Including where long neck is standing...and you're right Ken...about thirteen from the ground in the front and about fifteen in the rear...enough room in the back to crawl under no problem...Jake and I have looked for Monsters that might be using the underneath for a cool spot to nap...
is looking like an arm to me
Start with the tree trunk, immediately to the left of it is a light colored vertical formation, I see that as the monster's left arm
At the top of the left arm we have the shoulder, which flows up and left into the head. It would be looking towards our left. I'm reading the light brown as the top of the head and side of its face, the dark splotch that intrudes into the light brown suggests where the eyes would be
Moving to the left, there's a dark curved area shaped like a C. Could be an elbow. You can follow the arm up and to the right (above the head now) and you come to a big hand or fist
So the overall impression I get is a monster standing with its body turned 45 degrees to our left, and it's looking in that direction with its right arm held up. Sort of like it's reaching for something above
Thank you for placing the photo.. With that said.
Why are the photos of "Monsters" blurry.
Yet; comparision photos clear.
Also? With so much activity at the Ladies. Home.
Difference in picture quality...by Monster Hunter
The original was taken with a 35 mm film Walmart throw away camera...the comparisons were taken with a digital with zoom...
This is a good visual for what the effects of infrasound can do to a liquid. M.K.
It is the hose that is being affected by the sound, and not the falling stream of water.
I had a blast! Great people and great discussions. I was curious if any of the names I recognize on this here message board was at the conference

None that I know of....by Monster Hunter
I didn't know they were having a conference...
was watching last night and they were in the Klamath Mountains trying to get out. It was a good episode but what got me was when they started talking about bigfoot. Cody said he believes. Joe said he did as well but couldn't understand why they can't find remains
Are about 45 miles south of me.
Drive down there and tell that idiot to start wearing shoes! LOL
What is up with Mr Hippy-dippy? It has really slowed hbim down in some hostile environments.....
I ain't. That's one stoudt fella right there.
Like Don...I might ask him something but...by Monster Hunter
I ain't telling him a darn thing...
You mean to tell me that y'all chase 8+ feet tall, 800+ pound creatures through the woods armed with nothing more than smiles and grossly insuifficient firearms, and y'all wouldn't tell a mear mortal to put on some dadgum shoes. . . I think y'all are holdin out on us
I've wondered if some of the people that think they are following bigfoot tracks are actually following some yahoo like that without shoes. I've seen a guy on youtube that tracks what he calls bigfoot across the mountains and they only have like 10-12 inch long feet.
I bet he would put shoes on after the first time he stepped on one of these cottonmouths or copperheads we have here in the swamp that lie on the trails waiting for you to step on them. Dont know how many I've stepped on.
Duel? do they use pistols or what. Just ribbing you bud!
Like that show, didnt see that episode.
Ima get Barry to give y0ou a big ole hug one day soon. LOL
Yes I did,by Grumpy
know those areas well and it brought back lots of memories of living in that area back in the 70-80's. Hiked those woods many a night on SAR missions looking for lost hunters or hikers.
That the Yuroks and the Tolowa both say that the Klamath They don't like to go back in there.
Get busy and don't check....
Klamath river...that valley they say is bad MOJO.
dont know if anyone has seen it, but I like yukon men better....they LIVE survival 24/7/365......wonder if they have anything going on in alaska interior?
I watched it a time or two...by Monster Hunter
Their life depends on what they accomplish...
The poor fella from North Carolina just didn't have a clue. LOL
he couldnt even hook up dogs....and when he knocked out rear window of the truck, I knew he was gone.....those guys are no joke......one thing to go out any play in the wilderness, totally another to live and try to survive it
Thats some tough *** people to live out there! One episode I saw the guy was talking about his first winter there. He had to eat his dogs to keep from starving the death!!! They can have Alaska.
Endangered my a** Damn black bears are overrunning us over here in South Louisiana. I think we need to start eating them! I heard they taste good too. Subdivision here has problems. A dog got mauled the other day, 56 stiches I think it was. Only a matter of time before its a person that gets it.
...problem in California. The hippies want to protect them at the risk of human and pet life.
Ken, leaves out the part where there's two black bear conservationist ladies who hit every council meeting in the parish to warn people about contacting black bears, and that they're endangered and we should give them space! People in this subdivision cannot walk after dark, pets have to be brought in, kids can't play in the yards anymore, and somehow the #$%^ Wild life people are blaming it all on residents!
A couple a years back a few miles away a great big male was tearing up every trash can and shed, and folks were literally scared to death. The police chased it away a couple of times but eventually it didn't scare anymore! Well one loud shot one evening ended the bear terror. But...sadly dozens of wildlife agents and bear conservationists pounced on the area and eventually the husband was arrested and received a huge fine!
This is insane! The bear population in this one area has tripled in the last four years. One or more dogs and pets have been attacked and people can't live their lives. Once one of these animals mauls or kills a human being, somebody's child and family member, there's gonna be an unofficial open season and that can't be good for the species...So manage the population!
Have a lottery hunt, limit this hunt in the areas which are closest to human contact...reduce the over all numbers which are astounding for this small area, and also put a little fear of man back into them!
Rant over!!! LOL
I was thinking the same thing, once they harm a person these coonasses here WILL declare an open season on them.
A lot of them up here on the Oregon coast. And yes, they do taste good! We know a guy who brings us his extra bear and elk meat. Mix them all together with a dash of cow and it makes one fine meatloaf!
Does anyone else notice how this looks nothing like a large human-like bipedal creature? Or is it just me? To say that BF sightings are just mistaken black bear sightings is just silly in my opinion.
I noticed that too. Look how short the legs are. Not over 6 ft. tall either. It would have to be a big bear to be 8 ft tall!
Someone will sue the local wildlife management because they are risking the lives of the local human populace. Since you can be fined for shooting one, then why can you not sue an agency who's job it is to keep the animals under watch...sorry, I'm just tired of the whole PETA and wild animal lovers. If they cannot understand why man has reduced the numbers of these dangerous creatures for a reason then maybe they should be educated through legal means.
Folks, here's a video the boys put together for our moose camp in an attempt to preserve it's history. They used the song I'd written for them a couple of years ago and that I had recorde on my CD. I know it's not bigfoot related but I thought the hunters here might find it kinda neat.
Yep...it is a neat tune...by Monster Hunter
thanks for sharing...
Little toe tapper
I loved it. Thanks for sharing that with us.
Good memories are priceless....
good song and enjoyed the pictures. Looks like fun!
Thanks for sharing...
Awsome way to save and share memories.
That's really cool, when is the next hunt!
It doesn't get any better than memories created at a place like that! Thanks for sharing.
loved it and tapped my toe, too. Loved the photos.

Check these out, game cameras you can control via your cell phone.

If you want to spend a little money, the technology is available to get real-time video and photos from surveillance cameras out in the woods. Though I haven't been doing it lately, as far back as three years ago I was getting wireless 80211 ethernet network access to real-time surveillance cameras I had set up as far away as 1000 feet from my house using special antennas and repeaters. The remote camera systems were solar powered, and self-supporting. Also, I had one camera system I built that was its own web server and operated on 3G cellular internet, and I could put it literally anywhere on the property. I could attach to it from anywhere in the world via the internet, and get a live feed, or have it send me motion-triggered audio, video, and still pics. I was even having it automatically send pics to other people via email. I never got anything other than the usual animal activity, so I put the systems away.
I noticed that the higher end models of the cameras they were selling on your link approached 400 dollars. For a little more money than that, you could build yourself a system that would do more, like real time audio and video, and a better camera that detects actual visual motion, and doesn't depend on infared detection. Oh, and the trigger time on these cameras was so fast they would capture lightning strikes. But, these systems aren't something you would leave out on public property.
Can you send me some info on the systems that you built? I am seriously considering something similar for my property all the way around (only 20 ac), but am lost without plans of some kind. I am also considering attempting a homebrew thermal, and am trying to educate myself a bit on the tech now.
Let me know and I can give you my email, snail mail, phone, or whatever.
Let me get an equipment list together and I will post it.
Simple question...it would seem...by Monster Hunter
Ms. Francis walks outside...sees the critter in the left red box...walks back in her home, retrieves a camera and takes this picture...my question...why are these critters standing where they are especially by the tree...Ms. Francis doesn't have a schedule to be anywhere at any certain time so its not like they know she is walking outside at say 9 AM...
Unless she has or had a rutine of going out side @ certain times of Day or there is something else very interesting they were watching.
Like they are waiting for her, interested in what she's gonna do next!
It appears that way to me as well...by Monster Hunter
I guess when you have nothing for to do for entertainment you have time to stand around and wait for someone to come out or drive up to the house...
could just be waiting till they hear her come to the door, then take position to see her well and of coarse make there presence known. Why? beats me. That is quite a situation they have there with the constant attention from that clan. I must say, She has got grit.
Its darn near on a continuous basis...by Monster Hunter
I talked to both ladies yesterday with Ms. Francis having something beat on her back wooden exterior room...she heard a loud howl and some quacking like a duck...there's not any ducks around their places anymore...
But if the BFRO's esteemed research crew ever visits there, there will be chickens in the area. LOL. I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist. Lord, I apologize!
But when I looked at the photo I did not scroll down to see what was inside the red boxes. I could have sworn I was looking at the tallest "bear" I'd ever seen. And inside the "bear's" head I saw the face of a man. Since you have told us that Ms. Francis has lots of paranormal stuff on-going, I think she also captured some of it too. Take a look up high in the tree nearest the red box on the left. See if you don't find what I'm speaking about.
RR is enjoying Spring Break!
Seeing different items in a picture...by Monster Hunter
is not uncommon at all...the place is just plum weird at times...
see more faces than I expect in these photos! Very weird.
Duck Dynasty....found it interesting the Jace Robertson mentions bigfoot..since they live in Louisiana, it might be kind of interesting if you contacted them Monster Hunter, let them no some basic facts of the matter. Wouldn't be such a bad idea to have someone with some national exposure on our side of the fence...

That type of program...by Monster Hunter
I would imagine I'd be the butt end of their comedy...
they come up here to Kansas quite frequently to hunt...most folks say Jace is really down to earth. Just wondering if these fellas might be a little more open to looking over the facts of the matter rather than disregarding them. Food for thought.
Hot Doughnuts are always the perfect redneck bait!
Hi, my name is Ronin.
I'm a new member and I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
I'm from south central AR. and I have been reading over the past postings. Wow. I see some interesting information on here. I would really like to meet up with some local researchers for some investigative outings or just to meet some like minded people from my area.
Stay safe and moving forward.
Welcome Ronin...by Monster Hunter
Quite a bit of information is on our forum from many different folks interested in BF...ask questions or give answers but enjoy...
R. Daniels and myself will be doing research in Western NM, If your interested e-mail me at
I was thinking Arizona, cant read these little screens very well without my glasses........lol
Welcome Roninby Grumpy
Welcome aboard Ronin, you stated you were a new member, were you referring to the message board or GCBRO. As Jim said earlier enjoy and stay active.
I am new to both the forum and the GCBRO.
and welcome to you from a mostly arm-chair researcher, who respects those who REALLY research.
Welcome this is a great group with a lot of knowledgeable folks enjoy
Hi, Im in north central LA. Where are you at?
the Pine Bluff / White Hall area.
spend a little time reading it.
That is a good read...by Monster Hunter
I was just watching or reading something similar this week...
Hi I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone I am Rick Larntz of course I am 39 the past several years I've spent as a founder and investigator for Brooke County Paranormal in Wellsburg WV we've investigated all over the country and was asked once to assist on a show on travel channel. I am turning my interest toward searching for Bigfoot I've been fascinated by it for years and would like to be part of a team in my immediate area if there is any. I currently live in Waveland , MS down on the coast. Anyone with info regarding my area please feel free to email me and thank you in advanced any questions you might have for me fire away....
|This message has been edited by tiny from IP address 188.8.131.52 on Mar 7, 2013 3:27 PM|
Welcome Rick...by Monster Hunter
I'm quite sure our MS folks will chime in...
Thank you I look forward to learning as much as I can
Welcome Rick,by Grumpy
Rick, welcome to the message board and don't forget to also check out the entire GCBRO site and if interested in joining or need additional information feel free to contact Jim or myself and we can email it to you since our Founder Bobby Hamilton is extremely busy with work commitments.
I haven't found a more knowledgeable group anywhere around than this bunch. We have some folks here that have been around these creatures ALOT. I'm in Ridgeland Miss., bout 3 hours from you.
you may get to combine your interests because Bigfoot sightings sometimes happen in areas that also have had paranormal activity. Happy hunting and welcome to the best group of Bigfoot researchers/investigators going, IMHO!
Welcome Rick! Sorry I'm late welcoming you. I haven't been online much lately, and I was near Richton with Squatch Unlimited last weekend. I'm in Stone County, an hour or so from you. I have a cousin who was working in Bay St. Louis, but I think health issues have caused her to stop working now. I think we have a couple more members down in this part of the state. Shoot me an email if you want, or any of these other guys. Heck, I'm the greenest one here, lol.

Monster by Ms. Shirley's home and I ain't talking down the road a piece...by Monster Hunter
And BTW...If me putting a red box around a Monster there are two things you need to remember...first...some folks are picture blind...the second thing...you can kiss my axx...
There is no way some person is this sick...or...maybe so...by Monster Hunter
Defense rests at trial of NY police officer accused of plotting to abduct, torture, eat women...
After reading the article I feel like I'm completely sane...
Oh...and another thing...by Monster Hunter
The box to the left looks like a chimpanzee IMO while the rectangle to the right is just creepy...some say its a black eyed little girl and it very well could be...I guess...I stop at this creek often but personally haven't witnessed any sightings of BF, chimps or Black Eyed little girls...this creek is about 1/4 of a mile from Ms. Shirley's and Ms. Francis homes...rural area yes...wilderness...not even close...
If that is a head or face on right how big must that thing be??? My Gosh.
with shoulders that wide, some NFL teams need to find and sign her up
What is the white blob above the box on the right near the top of the picture?
Lower left of the red box looks like another sumptin. Could be a tree - hard to tell without reference.....
Day light?...by Monster Hunter
I really couldn't tell you...
The creature or "chimp" is actually very small since you can see actual blades of grass or weeds nearby. If that is correct then the "little girl" is about the right size. What that Chimpanzee really is, is the confounding issue.
Sorry...could NOT stop me from asking that question. I AM not making fun--intentionally. Never encountered one of these demon-children or whatever they are (some folks think they're extra-terrestrials). Heard they don't like being around a true believer in Christ...so, am hoping it's true. I've seen kids I'v subbed for with reptile-looking contacts; so far, have never seen a kid with all black contacts and hope I never do.
Keep up the good work
Looks like a BIG BOY right there
Same one,by Grumpy
Jim, is that the same picture some of us saw awhile back or another in the same location?
Same...by Monster Hunter
Dang Jim, With soo much activity they have I sure hope they are careful, I know from the past with Penny, they are pretty interested in messing with women
so out of focus Jim? Are the girls still fighting with the camera?
Cell phone T...by Monster Hunter
just don't do a good Monster photo justice...
the eye brows/ridge and nose, its cool to see the facial features I have never seen something like this pic, very cool and.........one big SOB!
This one is quite a large fellow! Wow.
on a friend's computer that was much higher quality than mine and I can see some really good facial features-this is one incredible picture.Thanks so much!
MY isn't he/she a big 'un? That would scare the pixx out of me to see that through a camera lens. She's a brave woman! Thanks for posting the photo WITH a red box. Old eyes appreciate your efforts to help us see...
see that one, and I ain't even got my glasses on!

I stole the below from Face Book...by Monster Hunter
Some may have seen it but this is for the ones who didn't...
most would think PA is urban.....only the far eastern around from philly to scrAnton, and west from pittsburgh to erie is urban....the north central is as mountainous as you can get, and kind of reminds me of terrain in oregon.....deep river valleys.....I deer hunt up there, and you got to be part billy goat to get up those mountains.....plenty of places for stuff to hide, and you would never know it was there.....I miss the s. ark/n. la bottomlands after a week up there!
I've driven through PA....by Monster Hunter
More then several times...beautiful country...
not a bad site, all in all.
but the white one, which I've seen the entire video of, never has any eye shine, which makes me doubt it is a real animal since all nocturnal animals have the reflective membrane at the back of the eye that helps them see at night, but people don't.
I saw the video of the next one, and it looks like a guy in a suit and moves like one too.
I don't know about the Jacobs' photos (the last pic). It's one of those where you had to be there, or I need more info to really figure it out. Some of you guys with first hand up close experience will have to comment on it.
