Bigfoot Report from Illinois
Illinois isn't well-known for its Bigfoot sightings, but sightings do occur...and they are often concentrated around my area in the central part of the state along the Illinois and Sangamon Rivers.

These are are teeming with deer and scattered, thick patches of forest.  But does that mean Bigfoot could live here? My personal experiences tell me yes, but I can't just rely on that to determine if Bigfoot is here. So, it helps me to refer to other local reports.


I recently found this old and somewhat creepy Bigfoot sighting report from the BFRO website that took place in this area very close to where I do some research and take numerous wildlife photographs. Especially those of deer. 
The report follows the story of a man and his friends who returned to the same area several times back in 1977. This report includes two vocal encounters and then a sighting.
Check it out and see what you think.

YEAR: 1976-1977
SEASON: Fall
MONTH: September
STATE: Illinois
COUNTY: Sangamon County
LOCATION DETAILS: North of Buckhart on Young Road.
NEAREST TOWN: Rochester

Is this a Thunderbird?

could it be a real Thunderbird

Is this a Thunderbird?
I got this report submitted last night. It is one of a possible Thunderbird. It had a couple of photos with it and I have also attempted to enhance one of the photos.

Here is what Mark had to say in his report.

"Hello, I  had read a story about a few people that saw a large bird in  near Breedsville, Michigan, it was  posted on your  site  by Thomas Marcum.

It reminded me of the large  bird  I had seen on a  fishing trip in Spanish Ontario Canada.  I  managed to take a couple of pictures of what  I witnessed before it went out of  site.
My father and  I  were fishing  on  lake  Huron, north  of  the  Manitoulin Island by the  main land . The closest village  is  Spanish  Ont. The  sighting  was  relatively close, geographically speaking, to the  Michigan one.

The  unknown species  was very high in the sky . Other birds were in the area for comparison  flying  around at different altitudes but which were much smaller and not near as high up.
I was able  to  identify some eagles  and sea gulls that same day. What I  took a picture of that day  really stood out and was much larger. Truly a massive winged creature. I zoomed in for the  2nd pic the best i could. Take  a look ...see what you  think."


Ok, first here is the link to the Breedsville, Michigan Report that Mark mentions in his report.

Here is the other photo that Mark sent in.

I want to point out something, the sighting date with the photo is June 8th, 2012 and the photo has a date of 5/31/2011.
It's not a big deal but if you don't point out stuff like this people raise red flags. Most likely this was due to a changed in batteries. I know I have had cameras that the date would reset if I had to change batteries ...it was annoying fixing the date.

Here you can see a large bird way up in the sky.



 
 
 
 
 
Now I will show you the zoom in from the picture at the top of the post. This is the photo in which Mark had zoomed in on, I can take it much closer with my software.

 
 
 
 
 
As you can see the bird is really large. Is it a Thunderbird or not is very hard to say.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is a map of the area, the yellow circle is the target area where the photo was most likely taken. 
 
A big thanks to Mark for sending in his sighting, of course we can not say for sure this is a Thunderbird but it does appear to be rather large. Mark did a nice job of at least getting a picture of the bird.
If anyone has other sightings they would like to share, you can use the link at the top of the page or contact us via email.
Thanks

Trail Cam Photo Of Deer and Bigfoot?

Bigfoot and Buck?


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.



So, I'm trolling the Internet looking for any Bigfoot stuff I might have missed and I run across the photo above. It shows a possible Bigfoot in the woods and a buck deer is looking toward the possible figure. I have attempted to enhance the figure and just turned it into a short video.

Here is the video. (Subscribe Please)


I do not know what state this was taken in or any kind of story surrounding it. I stumbled across the video on the site ascension earth.

I will also include a couple of the enhanced photos here.

Bigfoot on Game Cam
Now, could this be a Bigfoot, Hunter, Wolf or perhaps it is just tree roots?












Bigfoot on Game Cam



It does not appear to be a Photoshopped figure but it appears that whatever it is, is actually there.







Let me know what you think this is.

Thanks

Another UFO video from Oregon?

Black UFO in Oregon?


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


It seems I've been on a UFO kick the last few days but here again is yet another UFO video reportedly filmed in 2007 in Oregon. I do not know the back story or who actually shot the video. I have attempted to enhance the video. At one point the Object seems to disappear and then reappear ...could it have been caused by camera shake?

Here is the enhanced video.



Of course, I do know there are such things as UFO and have my own theory as to what they are and what their purpose really is ...but I'll save that for another day ....often times known objects are simply misidentified.

What do you guys think about this object?

Thanks
~Tom~

UFO In North Carolina

UFO in NC
UFO in NC

Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


UFO In North Carolina

After I posted the UFO Filmed in Oregon story, I was sent the following report and photos. The person ask to remain anonymous and I will respect their wishes.

With that said I can let you know what they told me about the photo.

Here is the story about it. I made only a couple of small edits to protect the person identity and make it easier to read.  

Anonymous said:
"I don't remember the date, we was down there (NC) when this was taken, but it was several years ago. It could of even been close to the 07 date, but I would guess closer to 08.

I would even have to dig through my dvds to find the original photo, I've been through a computer or two since this photo was taken.  This copy is one that has had the object enlarged in one & circled & inset to make it easier to see in the other photo but nothing other was added so it is what it is... nothing hoaxed, faked or nothing misleading about it. I wasn't even sure what it is but it doesn't look like a bird or aircraft.

The photo was taken about halfway down the eastern side of the great divide mountain between Blowing Rock NC and Lenoir NC It's a beautiful area . My family lived down there a few years & we drove it on weekends quite often, through the mountain, two lane roads - a much quicker way believe it or not & the views where breath taken all times of the year...."



Here is some enhanced photos of the object.





Zoomed in. It does not appear to be a bird.



I enhanced the photo a little and made it a little darker and sharpened it a little. The object does look a lot like the object from the Oregon video.







Here is a map showing the two cities, Blowing Rock and Lenoir, the yellow circle is just a guess at the target area where the photo was taken.


Target area
Thanks to "anonymous" for sending in the photo and the story behind it. I will also plot this on our sightings map.
If anyone has something to share feel free to contact me.


Thanks
~Tom~

UFO Filmed in Oregon?

Oregon UFO
Another enhanced still frame from the video


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


I ran across an interesting clip of a possible UFO. The best I know is that it was filmed in Oregon back in 2007. I have no idea who filmed it or the back story. It appears as these people were just riding along in a car and noticed the object in the sky and started filming it. There was no audio with the clip and it was extremely shaky. I have attempted to stabilize the video and enhance it to bring out more details. I have also included a few extra enhanced photos with this post, including the one at the top.

Here is the enhanced video.



Here is the extra enhanced still frame





So, what to you think? Is it a real UFO or something else? Could the high number of Bigfoot sighting having anything to do with UFOs in Oregon?

Feel free to leave a comment below.


Thanks

Interview With Bigfoot Researcher Paul Hayes

Paul Hayes from The Genoskwa Project


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


Interview With Bigfoot Researcher Paul Hayes

In this interview session, we talk to Paul Hayes founder of  The Genoskwa Project. Paul and the Genoskwa team are currently involved in the making of a documentary film entitled "Small Town Monsters". The documentary is being made in Ohio by Alan Fathom Frontiers, Seth Breedlove and Jesse Morgan. The main topic of the documentary is the Minerva Monster that was heavily
talked about in the late 1970's. You can visit the Genoskwa Project Website for more details about the film and get information on the teams Bigfoot research.



- Start Interview -

TM: How long have you been researching/studying Bigfoot?

PH: I have only been pursuing Bigfoot for just a few years, I get out when I can and I normally like to research private property that have had some type of activity..

TM: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started? 

PH: What really kicked up my interest was my class A sighting back in 2011, a sighting that had changed my life forever. (Read Paul's Sighting by Clicking Here!)

TM: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a Bigfoot?(details please)

PH: I have had two class A sightings, the first one that was a day time sighting in 2011 and a second one that was at night, I have felt a bit nervous but I have not encountered any aggressive behavior nor did I feel threatened.

TM: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack Bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?

PH: How do I deal with skeptics? I don't because everybody is entitled to their opinion and if they don't believe what I tell them that I encountered well I don't expect them too but you must keep an open mind to a certain extent but when they say prove Bigfoot exist, I say prove they don't and just move on.

TM: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?

PH: I wouldn't mind seeing Bigfoot proven to the public but once it is it will be a whole new ball game out there, if Bigfoot is never proven that will be fine too because there is a lot of people that knows 100% that they exist.

TM: What is your favorite time of year to research/study Bigfoot, When do you have your most success?

PH: My favorite time of the year is early spring and fall, it seems to be the best time of the year in Ohio.

TM: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?

PH: My favorite report would definitely have to be my own from the sighting of 2011.

TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying Bigfoot?

PH: I would still be hitting the trails like I normally would do but researching for Bigfoot is an added bonus because I will say once you have had an encounter you never look at the woods the same anymore and you seem to be more alert.

Thanks for doing the interview and good luck with your research.

- End Interview -


This concludes our 19th installment of our interview series. I still hope to do more of these in the future. So far we have interviewed some amazing people and heard some great encounters.

Often times, Bigfoot and Paranormal research is far from glamorous and requires a lot of time out investigating areas and reports. So we thank all who have taken part in our interview series and wish everyone continued success in the future.

Thanks
~Tom~

Bigfoot Seen on Hwy 41

Paso Robles on the left and Avenal on the right


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


I put out a call for Bigfoot and UFO sightings and got in this report of a Bigfoot crossing Hwy 41 in California. Although the submitted report is somewhat brief, it still contains some good information and helps establish a history and base for sightings in the area.  

-Start Report-

Name: Rudy ******
Email Address: (On file )
State: saw it in cal.(California)
County: king's - Kern (Kern county area)
Date of Sighting: ? late summer of 1977
Time of Day: 1:00 am
Nearest Town: between Avenal and Paso Robles (Circles on Map)
Length of Sighting: maybe 10 sec.
How many Witnesses: 5
Any Photos/Videos: none
Describe sighting in detail:
I was coasting down hill on hwy.41 N., when I noticed the car coming up hill hit his brakes.
I thought deer, but to my surprise this huge dirty brown hairy critter was standing over center
line.
I applied my brakes, he then turned his whole body to face my car. He stepped 2 times
and was out of site.
The creature was 8-9 ft tall.

-End Report-

If I'm correct and I think I am, Hwy 41 runs through Paso Robles up to Fresno. This sighting area would appear to have very little wooded area now but could have possible had more back in '77. There is also the possibility that the creature could have been moving into or looking for a better living area or maybe just heading to a water source. Its hard to say for sure.

Here is a 3D map of an area along Hwy 41 called White Canyon.

Hwy 41
If I find out more information about this sighting I will update the post.

A thanks to Rudy for sending in his sighting to us. If anyone else has had a sighting in this area, then feel free to contact us.

Thanks
~Tom~

Bigfoot Field Research

Finally some Bigfoot time.


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


Bigfoot Field Research
This is just some field research work from 12/5/14. Nothing really amazing, other than the scenery, but I do find some odd things. It was just great to get back out in the mountains. I recorded almost 20GB of video on that one day and hiked over 10 miles in mountains that are almost straight up.
I'm not like a lot of these other "Bigfoot researchers" and "experts", I actually get out in the deep woods and look for evidence. I do know Bigfoot are in this area, so I'll keep searching.
Here is the video.



Have a great day.

Thanks
~Tom~

Another Look at the Hoffman Film

Bigfoot?


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


I got up early this morning and thought I'd take another long over due look at the Hoffman film. While I understand there is many questions about the footage, I want to just really look at the figure itself.  I will include a few more still shots from the video and also the video I created this morning.




Here is a zoom on the figure. Notice the knots, which I'm assuming is bug bites and maybe matted hair.

The best I can remember this was shot in Canada by Hoffman.


If this was a fake and it's really a suit , it has to be the best one I've every seen. You would think, if it was a suit that more videos would have been made with it. 





 
Here is the video enhancement

 
 
 
To me this is one of the best possible Bigfoot videos I've seen. Probably top 3 - Patterson-Gimlin, Paul Freeman and then the Hoffman footage. I will admit some of the questions about the Hoffman film are puzzling and how the guy just fell of the face of the earth is odd, but the footage itself is good and clearer than a lot of the stuff we get nowadays.
 
So, what do you think?


Thanks
~Tom~
