Mock up image made to represent the actual sighting.

I got this bigfoot sighting report submitted a few days ago. In many instances these old logging and mining roads become a area for some fun ATV riding. Many of these old roads are grown up and other than some ATV riding, rarely have visitors. Who doesn't like to hit the old four wheeler and spend a few hours of fun and sight seeing in the mountains. Splashing some mud puddles and having some laughs.
Anytime we are in these remote locations, we increase our chances of having a sighting of our beloved monster, Bigfoot.

Here is the submitted sighting report.

Still frame from the original video
First let me say, I know this is a very old video but I thought it was worth a revisit. I know many are probably not that interested in this old video but maybe I can give some new or updated information about it.  I do know that at one time this video was pretty popular and was even featured on the Finding Bigfoot TV show. Not only that but the video was featured on many top bigfoot video list. I can remember the Facebook/FindBigfoot page having it rank and down as a real bigfoot.

Let talk a look at the background story, here it is from the description used on the video.


Welcome to episode 18 of My Crypto World. In this episode, I wanted to encourage people to get more active and in doing so, you will increase your chances of finding bigfoot.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
PLEASE NOTE - A couple of the things I mention in this video have already been posted in another video/post. You can find it by Clicking Here! 

Here is episode 18

Just a little bit before I went on vacation, I took to the ATV to do a little bigfoot hunting. I returned to a spot where I may have captured a picture of a bigfoot and I scout around for some tracks.Now, that I have vacation over with I plan on getting out a lot more. I hope you enjoy the video.

Bigfoot Hunting!



 I really don't know what did all the tree breaks ...could have been bears, wind or something else. I will have to keep a check on that area.


Thanks

I recently got word of a possible bigfoot track being found very close to me. The area has a nice recent history of bigfoot sightings. I loaded up my gear and used my ATV to go check out the area where the track was found. I also searched some other locations for more tracks.

Here is a short video of some of the field work conducted.



I was able to find numerous other animals tracks, such as deer, bear and turkey. The area is a prime location for bigfoot.Yeah, I know the video is not the most exciting thing in the world, but that is how it goes a lot of the time with bigfoot research.


Thanks

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

I just thought I would share a short video of our recent ATV ride. This video and pictures are from my little corner of the world here in Southeastern Kentucky. The video also features some Bigfoot sighting information from this area. I also give a few updates on some of our current projects. I'm luck to have all this beautiful forest land around my home, it's no wonder Bigfoot likes it around here.

Here is the video (Make sure to watch in HD)


Thanks for visiting the website and watching the video. More to come!

Thanks

I got a report from some of my family a few days ago. I had known about their finding for a while now but they want to make it official now with a report.

The report comes from Jim and Vickie, I will only use their first names but I'm sure anyone who lives around here will know who they are. This finding happened about 2 years ago.

Jim and Vickie like to go 4 wheeler riding, sometimes they go on night rides. One evening after a good rain the couple decided to take a ride on the ATV.

"It was the edge of dark, we like going on night rides and it had just rained. We was riding and I was driving, so wasn't going fast, I looked down and saw a footprint and stopped and backed up" Vickie said.

Vickie continued "I thought it strange someone being barefoot so recent and up in the mountains. When we saw it and started to examine it we realized it wasn't human, yet it favored human toes but bigger. But the toes were different, had odd number and we new it wasn't human. We got freaked and I took out of there. We will never forget it!"

 At this point in our conversation and after realizing that the track had something unusual about it's toes; I told Vickie about the 4 toed casting I have that came from Oregon. This is when Vickie said "Jim said this print had 3 (toes)."  As some of you may know there are many reports of 3 toed tracks being found, I relayed this bit of information to Vickie. Her reply was "WOW!"  

She went on "We couldn't find the second print but the mud turned into grass, the print was close to the middle of the road but it was at least 4 foot from road to grass! It was also a deep print. We left because it was so fresh."  She proceeded to tell me the exact location of the track but I will not disclose that information other than to say it was in Harlan county, Kentucky. Vickie also said "I know I had the weirdest feeling" in reference to finding the fresh track.

I myself know and many others, that same odd and often times scary feeling you get when you encounter a Bigfoot.

I ask how big the track was and Vickie said "Jim put his foot down beside it and it was couple inches longer than his and he has a size 14 boot. The toes were deeper than the heel of the foot, we figured it was running and it was only about 5/6 inches in the middle but it did have a slight curve to the insole."

Unfortunately, the couple did not have a camera with them that night. But after this finding of the track they rarely go our without one.

I would also like to add, that this is very close to at least one if not two reported sightings. So, the chances of this track being a Bigfoot track are real good.

I wonder sometimes about the 3 and 4 toed tracks that are found. Is it just a case of toe overlapping or did some of the toes just not make an impression? Maybe the easiest answer is that they only had 3 or 4 toes. I really don't know, I guess that is just another part of the mystery of Bigfoot.

Thanks to Vickie and Jim for sharing their finding with me.


Thanks

Details about the upload -
Published on Apr 18, 2012 by LeDouxTube
While visiting my family in Washington state, my brother and I were taking turns riding my parent's quad. He came back claiming he saw bigfoot. I thought he was making it up... until we played back the video. I don't know if someone was in the woods messing with us or something, but whatever it is freaks me out!

TCC- Lots of questions about this video....the BF is also carrying a stick in it's hand. Fun video but still Inconclusive. There are some things I like about the video and several things I don't like. Why no reaction from the rider of the ATV? is a big question. Plus the creature looks kind of baggy..so I'm assuming this is fake.
Thanks
