Beware of Black Bears - Tips that might save your life!


Here in my area of Kentucky, we have a growing black bear population. This has led to an increase of sightings and run ins with bears. For many years now I have never carried a fire arm while out in the mountains but that recently changed for me.

Over the last month, I have been out 4-6 times a week looking for ginseng. I enjoy the outdoors and I like digging the sought after root and maybe I can make a few bucks at the end of the season. Well, about a week ago I was coming out of a place where I have been hunting ginseng and I passed another ATV going into the hollow. It is a guy I know and I later found out he had been hunting ginseng in this area as well. I later found out that while he was in there a bear charged him that same day. He was able to back up and fire off his pistol a few times to scare off the bear. He did report it and the Fish and Wildlife people came and set out a large trap for the bear but they never caught it.

On the day the bear charged the man, I had encounter what I thought was a bear but I never could see it. I'm still hunting ginseng in the very area but now I have decided to pack my pistol with me. I have no intentions of shooting a bear unless it is absolutely necessary but firing off a few shots in the air or in the ground might stop a possible attack.

With that said, I thought it might be a good idea to post about what to do to avoid a bear attack and what to do if a bear charges you.
Here we go, with some tips. Remember, each person should weight their situation and use their own judgements as to the appropriate actions to take. 

    * Hike or hunt in a group if possible. If you go alone, like me, don't be so stealthy. Make some noise or do some singing. I personally have started to sing softly to myself but yet loud enough to give a bear a warning that someone is coming. This will give the bear time to move on.

    * If you see the bear at a good distance, back up slowly and/or find an alternative route.

    * If a black bear charges you, stand your ground and make some noise. Waving your arms is normally a good thing to do. Do not run! A bear can run around 30 mph, you can't out run it. If the bear thinks you mean business, it may lose interest and move on.      

    * Carry Pepper spray. If a black bear charges you, pepper spray will normally make it change it's mind and move on. If you carry a firearm you can shoot it in the air or ground and the loud bang might get the bear to move on.

    * If none of this works and the bear actually attacks you, then fight back. Use anything you can find, sticks, rocks or your own hands. Hit the bear on the snout and near the eyes. The bear may decide it is not worth it and give up. If you still can't discourage the bear and it gets you down, ball up and clasp your interlocked fingers over the back of your neck and pull your elbows in next to your face. If you have a backpack on it will help absorb some of the blows. Hopefully, the bear will give up and move on. If, the bear gives up and moves on, lay there for 20 minutes or more before getting up, as sometimes bears are slow to move on and will keep watching you.     


Most bear attacks are defensive attacks, meaning the bear feels threatened by you, or is protecting cubs, or protecting a kill site or maybe you just startled it. In these cases you can normally back away slowly and talk softly to let it know you are not a threat. Once the bear sees you are not a threat, it will move on. A predatory attack is even more serious, although much more rare for black bears. In this type of attack a bear is stalking you and has intention of using you for food. Playing dead is not a good idea and you must fight for your life.

The main thing is to be alert and keep an eye out for black bears. Avoid them if at all possible. Let others know where you will be hiking or hunting at and your expected return time. A black bear standing on it's back legs, only stands about 5 foot tall or less. But don't let that fool you, black bears can be very dangerous.

Enjoy the woods and be safe!

Thanks

Bigfoot in Oregon - Steve Interview


I got a report in from Steve a few days ago.

Here is a brief over view of what Steve told me:

"This happened in 2003 in Silverton Oregon in the Cascade mountain range.  This happened the week no customers where there and the only people where the camp staff. The staff is about 12-15 fifteen people as business demands. I am a outdoors type of person. I am a railroad photographer and like to camp. I am outdoor smart, when I go out I take a fire arm with me. We stayed at one of the cabins about fifty yards from the main cabin where the staff slept. 11:30PM I am awaken by my wife and she hears grunting and groaning outside our cabin, behind the cabin about 20 yards.  There is caregiver family there. There dogs are going absolutely crazy. The father and the two older boys yell at my wife and I say are you OK. The response is “ There is something out here right now. The dogs bark and run back scared one dog is a pit bull terrier and the other is a greyhound, they go back into the house and would not come out. My wife is totally freaked out.  They call down to the main cabin and get the rest of the staff to come up the hill . They use golf carts and take my wife and I to the main cabin and put us in a room there."

Here is my interview with Steve



Thanks goes to Steve for sharing his story with us.


Thanks

Rock Apes of Vietnam


Today, I took a trip to the gun shop as I needed to pick up a holster. While there I also purchased a single barrel 12 gauge shotgun. I was walking through town carrying my unloaded weapons and this guy sitting in front of a store ask me a question. He inquired about buying my shotgun. I explained to him I had just purchased it to replace one I sold a few days prior.

We continued to talk, the guy was a friendly chap, and during our conversation he mentioned he was in the military and served in Vietnam.

I told him about some of my uncles who had also served in Vietnam and ask him if he had ever had to eat monkey. One of my uncles had told me about eating monkey while in Vietnam. He confirmed that he had indeed eaten monkey and then what he told me next was unexpected.

He said, "what was bad was those (expletive) rock apes!". Of course, with me in the cryptozoology field I was aware of the reports from Vietnam. The veteran continued, "They were as big as a man. They would throw rocks at us. We'd throw it back, it would throw the rock back at us."

I did not make him aware that I was into studying such things. I just stood quietly and listened.
He continued his story. "After throwing the rocks back and forth a few times, we'd throw a grenade and the (expletive) thing would go over to pick it up and BOOM!, it would blow it apart." he said with a slight chuckle.

I stood there and talked with him a few more minutes and finally I had to go. So I thanked him for his service and told him to have a good day.

Can you imagine being a young soldier in a very foreign land and seeing these bipedal, human looking apes coming at you. Then add in they are throwing rocks at you. Of course, some of our soldiers probably had never seen a real monkey before, little alone ones throwing rocks.

There are many, many stories about Rock apes in Vietnam and the surrounding regions. Some consider it a known animal but if you read some of the stories and some of what the locals say, I'm not sure we can put "Rock Apes" to rest. If it is indeed not a known animal, then just what is it?

I hope you enjoyed that little story.

Thanks
~Tom~

Could Bigfoot Be a Giant From the Old Days?


I have heard and read of people calling Bigfoot a giant. I have heard and read many reports that described Bigfoot as being 10-12 feet tall. I also know of one report, I talked to the person myself, and he claimed that the Bigfoot he saw was 20 foot tall.

Bigfoot seems to always have ties to Native American culture. I recently was told about an unusual grave in my area. The small, almost hidden grave yard, is said to have about 10 or so graves in it. The odd thing is that one of the graves is extremely long and is said to contain a man 8 foot tall or more. The guy who told me this was taken there by his dad when he was a kid. His dad actually knew the giant man and stated he was part Indian. I know where this area is and have been there a many times but I was not looking for a grave yard. I plan on making a trip there soon and try to find the grave of the giant man. The head and foot stones are said to still be there.

Here is a very good documentary about Giants. It is well worth watching. Can we find clues in the film about Bigfoot? 

Giants - Full Documentary


So, I guess it is possible that Bigfoot has ties to giants from the past. Could Bigfoot be some kind of remaining strain of past giants or some kind of off shoot of the original giants?

There are many possibilities and theories to think about when we consider the origins of Bigfoot. It also appears that Bigfoot and Giants have ties to the Bible, could this be why there is a cover up of giant bones and Bigfoot?

Thanks

Possible Bigfoot Picture


The before and after photos were taken in August of 2015. The figure does not seem to be in the after photos. The area does have a history of Bigfoot sightings.

Please watch the video to get more of the event and see more photos.



Of course, I can not save for sure what the figure is, but it could very well be a Bigfoot. There was no one else in the area when this was captured. This is an area I've been in a lot the last few weeks. I have found some odd stick things in the last few days. Stick things that I have really only seen in an area where I know there are Bigfoot. So finding them here gives me hope that I have found another area where there are Bigfoot. I hope to continue exploring the area and giving updates.

I have been reluctant to share these photos because I know we all get swamped with stumps and shadows pictures.

Thanks
~Tom~

Possible Dogman Seen in Kentucky


I got this interesting report in today. From what is being described, it sounds like a Dogman to me. Read it over and see what you think.

Here is the report submitted by Patty.

- Start Report -

"It was late summer in 1983.  I was living in Murray, Kentucky.  I was driving east on my way home from work about 5:30 p.m. on Hwy 94, which is a one lane each direction road, in my little red Mercury Bobcat.  I lived 14 miles out in the county, close to Kentucky Lake.  I was about 11 miles from town and saw a tall, slender creature on the side of the road.  It had just come up out of a farmer’s field and loped across the road just like a gorilla would using his arms and legs, about 50 feet in front of me.  It was headed in to the marsh type land going to the lake, which was less than a mile away.  It was moving VERY fast.  I hollered out to it and it stopped, turned around stood up straight and looked straight at me.  It stared at me and I stared at it.  Then, I got scared and got back in my car, and locked my doors.  It turned around and headed toward the lake.

The odd thing is that this would be considered rush hour but there were no vehicles in sight.  There were none in front of me and none behind me.  I waited a couple minutes while the creature was still visible.  I was hoping someone would come along so I could flag them down and they could see the creature, too.  I went home and told my husband and he thought I was crazy.  But, I know what I saw.
"

Description:  It was at least seven feet tall, its skin was pink like a pig, but was not hairy.  It had a neck longer than a human, its head was not large, it had small pointed ears spaced wide apart.  It had a very long torso, very long arms, legs not as long as the arms, feet and hands similar to a human.  It had intelligent eyes and a nose similar to a pig snout.  I got the feeling it was a teenager.  It seemed mischievous, not harmful.  I would describe it as a cross between a primate, a pig, and a human. 


Map of Area:

- End Report -

Now, this makes me wonder if this could have been what is commonly called a Dogman. Could it have been a Dogman with some kind of skin or hair condition that caused it to lose all of it's hair. I know certain types of infections can cause hair lose. Of course mange may also be a factor as well as type of diet or lack of nutrients.

I'm interested to hear what others have to say about this, so please leave a comment.

A Dogman is thought by many to be some type of offshoot of Sasquatch.

Thanks

Bigfoot Sighting Near Nashoba, OK

Little River near Nashoba, OK
I got this report in over the last couple of days. It has never been reported until now. Here is the details.

- Start Report -

Name: R. ***********
Email Address: On file
State:OK
County:
Date of Sighting: 1972
Time of Day: afternoon
Nearest Town: Nashoba
Length of Sighting: 3min
How many Witnesses: 1
Any Photos/Videos: no

Describe sighting in detail:

This happened in 1972 while I was fishing at a place on Little River near Hanobia,OK not far from a town called Nashoba.

My grand parents managed this lodge type area with private cabins on it for some people during the summer of 1972-73. I remember this vividly..I was fishing with this long cane pole, I had two Blue tick dogs with me at the time. I was fishing and the two hounds started howling at a huge figure that looked like a gorilla at first but walked like a man and was much bigger.

It was probably 7 feet tall, but I'm not sure. I was so stunned. It walked towards the river, turned and walked along the side and across the bank of the river for maybe 20 feet. It turned and went right back up into the woods.

The dogs were going crazy, barking by this time. I just took off running back to the main house. I left the pole and the dogs there. I never told anyone and I had nightmares about this for years afterword.

These things are real no question about it, but I would not want to tell anyone what I saw that day. I know I didn't dream it, it happened but if this story helps with your research into the existence of these...whatever they are, I hope so. I did google a map and I think I found the exact place where I saw this thing...Good Luck

!! Follow Up Questions !!

Tom: What was the color of the creature and did it make any sounds?

R: Tom, As I remember it was all black hair, massive, wide,shoulders. I don’t remember it making any sounds. It was a frightening thing, it may have made some sounds but in the area I was at,  Little River,  I was near rushing water. It could have made some noise and I couldn’t hear it  because of the sound of the water..I don’t know if this is related, but the two dogs turned up missing a few days later.

One, we never saw again they other came back about a week later with it’s head swollen on one side like basket ball. I remember  my Grandparents saying at the time they thought the Dog had been bitten by a Snake, which could have been a possibility but I don’t know.

I just remember the huge arms the thing had as it walked up back into the woods, pushing large tree branches down like they were nothing. I always thought they lived in the northwest but that’s not true.
Thanks ,
R

- End Report -

Thanks to R for submitting his sighting report. You know, growing up most of us had our parents try to scare us with tales about monsters and ghost. It was an attempt to get us to behave.  But for R. the scary tales became real while fishing one day. I can totally understand about having nightmares after seeing something as fierce looking as a Sasquatch.

It's funny in some ways, how our memories work and how some events stick in your mind for your whole life.  I know there are certain things that have happened in my life that I can remember in good detail. I sure remember the first time I encountered a Bigfoot, I don't think I will ever forget it.


Thanks

Turkey Hunter Finds Huge “Nest”

Turkey Hunter Finds Huge “Nest”
By Dorraine Fisher

Sometimes I think Bigfoot TV shows and all the hype and hoopla about Bigfoot has done them a huge disservice and hurt the research. But sometimes I wonder if I need to rethink that. 
 
The following is a recent BFRO report that took place near my home here in Florida. It was found by local turkey hunter who might have ignored it had he not been influenced by his son to take a picture of the find and contact the BFRO about it…something that just a few years ago might have seemed ridiculous to many. This is one that just might have slipped under the radar had it not been for Bigfoot TV and hoopla that’s taught a lot more people to take pictures of what they find and to not to be afraid to tell others about it. 
 
I don’t know how many times in my early hiking days that I found strange things in the woods and simply dismissed them as odd or credited them to other animals in the area. I get a little sick when I think about everything I passed up. But these guys did the right thing, and this major finding didn’t get lost. See what you think. Was this a bigfoot nest?
