Bigfoot Watches Bonfire

Here is an interesting video from Corky's Research page. Here is what Corky said about the capture.

"This was taken by a game cam mounted in my flower bed over 40 yards away, on the back side of the house. We were able to see him because of the fire in the back yard. The cam was set to take a pic ever 5 seconds. He was gone by the next set of photo's. This was the juvenile bigfoot that has been here 7 years."

It appears that Corky put the pictures on a monitor and then filmed them with his cell phone to create the video. In the series of pictures, you can see the figure move next to the tree and hide behind it.

Here is the video, followed by some additional information:

Ways To Discover Your Psychic Abilities

By Dorraine Fisher

We are all psychic, in a sense. We all have the ability to use that proverbial sixth sense we’re all told we have. But how do we learn to start using it?

Psychic abilities are like any other abilities we have. We start out knowing very little about them, and then we learn slowly by making mistakes and correcting them. We do things wrong in order to learn what’s right. But our psychic abilities are a very real thing that we can tap into. And for the sake of your personal awakenings, we absolutely should. But where do we start? Here are 6 ways to prepare your mind to start becoming more psychic. 

Do You Have A Split Personality?
The Paradox of Fragmentation

By Dorraine Fisher

Why is it so hard for us, as humans, to be authentic? To just be ourselves with no outside interference? It’s because we’re broken into hundreds or even thousands of pieces, literally. You not only have a dark side. You have many dark facets to your character. But the question is whether or not those dark facets are really bad like we’re taught to believe.

We’ve seen them in movies like The Three Faces of Eve and Sybil, people with such severe multiple personality disorder, or more correctly, dissociative identity disorder, that they have become completely dysfunctional in society. Their psychiatrists can summon any one of many of their personalities by asking to talk to him or her. And we watch as one person displays many different and opposing sides to him/herself.

And we think to ourselves, “Wow! I’m sure glad I’m not like that. I’m sure glad I’m normal.”

But are you normal really?

Out Of The Matrix?
Is This A Bumpy Ride Into The Age Of Aquarius
By Dorraine Fisher

Does it seem sometimes like the world is going crazy?

You’ve felt it. We all have. Something strange is going on in the world. 

We are rather chaotically slipping into a new age on planet earth. Experts can’t seem to come together on an idea about what that means, but they all seem to agree that the planet is experiencing a massive energy shift. Which means that the human race, profoundly affected by energy,  is also changing at an accelerated rate.

Ego - The Scariest Monster Of All Is Inside You
Is Yours A Monster Too?

By Dorraine Fisher

Throughout our entire lives, we hear a lot about the ego. And we think we know what it is. Most people believe that a person with a big ego is a person with an over inflated view of him or herself, or a person who’s narcissistic or conceited. And, though those things are true, they’re not all there is to the ego. We all fall victim to our egos. Psychiatric professionals battle this monster throughout their entire careers, attempting to make people understand and conquer their egos.

So, why is it such a big deal?

Earworms! Why You Can’t Get That Song Out Of Your Head
Understanding Psychic Abilities

By Dorraine Fisher

Have humans lost their intuition? Or is it trying to break through and send messages to us every day without our being aware? I was experiencing a lot of what’s referred to as earworms lately, and it was driving me a little crazy for a while. So much so that I had to start investigating.

Earworms. A very appropriate name for something that seems something like a little parasite inside our head. Like a creature that takes on a life of its own. But this is no creature, thankfully.

Yes, I know you all know what I’m talking about: That often irritating song that pops into your head, seemingly out of nowhere, and it just refuses to go away. You might wake up with it in your head in the morning, or maybe it just suddenly enters your conscious mind sometime during the day. But it doesn’t matter where it comes from. You just want it to go away. But it won’t...until it’s good and ready. 

 Bigfoot: Sticks and Trees

I guess it is an old topic and one that has been debated for a long time, but some just seem too eager to dismiss stick formations and tree breaks. They normally want to conclude that it was done by the weather, wind or some other natural occurring phenomenon, without ever hearing the back story. While I do totally understand the skepticism concerning stick formations and tree breaks, we do not need to be in a big rush to conclude all are caused by something natural.

Of course, weather can cause some weird tree bends and breaks, specifically heavy snow. Heavy snow is not as apt to happen in my part of the world ...but it does happen sometime. We probably have all seen how strong wind can really mess up trees. But in the end, a main factor concerning tree formations or breaks should be the back story, if it has one.

Over the years and even recently, I have heard people talk about the population of bigfoot. Some think that bigfoot population is dwindling down and some even think they are about to go extinct. So, all that got me to thinking about the many factors that can cause extinction. Lets look at a few that may or may not effect bigfoot and see if we can make some assessments.

Changes in Habitat - Destruction of wildlife habitat can result in a species going extinct. Things like deforestation, development of highways, dam building, urban development and other factors can cause havoc to wildlife. Destruction of habitat can lead to starvation of a species, make them a target for predators, or possibly cause them to die of disease. A species experiencing destruction of habitat must adapt to the changes or move to a different location. This is only some of the possible things that could happen. But would this apply to or effect bigfoot to the point of extinction? In my opinion, I would say probably not. As most of us know, bigfoot is extremely intelligent and would probably just move into a better area. The food source might be a bigger factor in the case destruction of habitat when it comes to bigfoot. But with the intelligence level of bigfoot, I would assume bigfoot would manage to find something. Another point to consider in destruction of habitat, to me, would be the rate of destruction. Of course a very fast, rapid destruction would probably be more devastating to all wildlife. In my are, in days gone by, strip mining and logging disturbed wildlife but the effects seemed to be only a temporary. If bigfoot had to move to another area due to habitat issues, could this be a factor in more sightings? I think it would.

Hunting -  While legal hunting can play a factor, it's the over hunting, poaching and commercial hunting that causes the most problems. Commercial hunting is hunting done for fur/pelts, tusks, horn and other parts. A good example is the hunting of Rhinoceros. Rhino's are/were hunted for their horn. The western black rhino was declared extinct back in 2013. It was due to poaching and a lack of conservation. Now, when it comes to bigfoot, we currently don't have a major problem with people hunting and killing them. Oh yes, some people hunt them and hope to kill one but nothing has come of it so far. There are numerous reports over the years of people shooting bigfoot, but in almost all cases it was a random chance encounter. So I think we can conclude that hunting of bigfoot is not a problem in the bigfoot going extinction theory.

Predators - Natural predators normally kill off the weak, wounded or sick prey, but it can play a part in the extinction of wildlife if a population is already low. But far worse is the human predator factor. Humans tend to take stronger and larger animals, which can really hit wildlife hard and make a species weaker. But neither of these would seem to pertain to our buddy bigfoot. As far as we know, bigfoot really don't have any natural predators. I would assume, new born or very young bigfoot could be prey for mountain lions or something but I would also assume they are well guarded.

Pollution and Disease - Pollution can have negative effects on habitat and animals. This would include plants and trees which could be a food source, among other things. But water pollution would have a bigger devastating effect in most cases. A damaged local water supply could lead to many factors which could result in a die off.  Insecticides and pesticides can be dangerous as well. But this type of problem is rarely seen in mountainous areas so the effects would be very rare and limited and probably not great enough to wipe out a whole species. Disease can be something very unpredictable. It may come from stagnated or polluted water. It could be introduced by a lower prey species. But generally cases of disease doesn't wipe out an entire species. So these factors probably would not play a major role in the dwindling or dying off of bigfoot.

Now, there are also other factors that can lead to extinction, but most are so rare and devastating nothing could be done anyways. For example, rapid climate change or abrupt climate change. Carboniferous Rainforest Collapse was a minor extinction event that occurred around 305 million years ago in the Carboniferous period. It altered the vast coal forests that covered the equatorial region of Euramerica (Europe and America). This event may have fragmented the forests into isolated 'islands', which in turn caused dwarfism and, shortly after, extinction of many plant and animal species. Another possibility is a major meteorological event. Plus I'm sure you can think of other things that can cause or lead to extinction but would it really effect bigfoot in a major way? Probably not.

So, after reviewing this information and thinking about the idea/theory that bigfoot is going extinct, I have concluded that most likely this is not true. And if they are going extinct, then it must be due to some outside factor that we don't know, understand or have thought of. I know this may not be a popular opinion that I have about it bigfoot not going extinct. But if you look at the sighting data, there seems to be a general overall uptick in sightings. You would think, for a dwindling population on the verge of going extinct, sightings would be way down. But that doesn't seem to be the case at all. Having more bigfoot sightings would seem to suggest there is a more robust population.

Of course, we don't know much about bigfoot. We don't know what or if they have a breeding cycle, how long pregnancy last, how long they live and many other things that could play a factor. I would assume, and I really don't know, that bigfoot have similar breeding cycles and pregnancies to humans. In Bonobo apes, the gestation period is about 240 days for pregnancy and that is comparable to humans at 280 days.

So, what might cause some people to think that bigfoot is going extinct?  While I can't really answer that for sure, I can offer a guess. Maybe a person does have less sighting in their area than in days gone by. This could lead them to believe bigfoot is dying off, but it really could only mean that the bigfoot have moved to another location. This would seem to account for the raise in sightings in other locations. I know in my area of Kentucky, there seems to be an increase in sightings. It could be due to a few factors. For one, the lack of logging and coal mining in my area many have led to an increase. Maybe, the increased destruction of habitat in other locations drove bigfoot  into our area.

My final assessment, opinion, would be that bigfoot is not about to die off or go extinct. That bigfoot has been here a long time and it will continue to be here for a long time.  That it is very hard to put a number amount on bigfoot. We really don't have any way to determine just how many bigfoot are out there.  We could make a guess, but it would be just that, a guess.

Does Bigfoot play with Pinecones?

Strange Formations In The Woods
Human Activity or Juvenile Bigfoot?
By Dorraine Fisher

In my early hiking days, I saw a lot of things in the woods that I ignored. And with all the new information we have now and all the advances in Bigfoot research since then, I’ve been forced to possibly kick myself for not paying closer attention.
It’s become obvious in the past few years that bigfoot activity can be so humanlike that it may often be mistaken for human activity. Stick structures were a good example of this. That is until we realized these structures were more complicated and some took a lot of physical strength to construct. And now, stick structures are among our most important clues of area activity. 
But are there other humanlike but less obvious clues to consider? 
I believe so. Years ago, on one of my hikes in a secluded area in Illinois, I came across railroad tracks. And on those tracks, small rocks had been placed on one of the tracks, and the formation continued for about 10 feet. The rocks were very neat and orderly in their placement. And I simply dismissed this find as something done by children. I didn’t bother to take any pictures, and I never gave it another thought until recently when a researcher in Louisiana showed me a picture she had taken in her research area.
Cynthia Tarver, a researcher from Florien, Louisiana, does some of her work there in Kisatchie National Forest. And she showed me this picture she took in a remote area of Kisatchie back in December of 2013. It’s a picture of pine cones that had been strategically lined up in a formation around a tree. She almost dismissed it, thinking it was made my human children, but it was interesting enough that she snapped a picture anyway. Could this have been created by bigfoot; perhaps even a juvenile that, in being an advanced primate, might behave and occupy its time the same way a human child might behave out in the woods. I have to wonder.
(Close up of pine cones, full picture at top of page) 

I might have dismissed this too, but it’s in a remote area of the national forest and Cynthia has found footprints and other evidence of bigfoot activity near there.

Tracks and some type of shelter were found.
So maybe we need to be more careful about what we dismiss as human behavior, and whenever we find something curious like this, we need to be sure and check for other evidence in the area…of humans or other primates.
My “rocks on the railroad tracks” formation happened to be in perfect bigfoot habitat, teeming with deer and nourished by a spring-fed creek. And incidentally, it was near an area where a couple of bigfoot sightings took place a while later. But I wasn’t informed enough then and I missed my chance. Luckily, Cynthia Tarver didn’t.
So, maybe we need to pay more attention and not be so quick to dismiss a lot of things we find out there. Not that we should determine every humanlike activity to be Bigfoot activity, but instead, keep our minds open and check for other evidence of bigfoot in the area. 
So, what do you think? Have you seen similar things in the woods? Did you dismiss it as human-made?

Deer and Sasquatch, is there a connection (Photo: ©Dorraine Fisher)
Are Deer Traits And Behaviors Influenced By Predators Like Sasquatch?
And Why Should We Care?
By Dorraine Fisher

     Ever since Janice Carter told National Geographic that Bigfoot hunted deer on her property in Tennessee, it has slowly become an accepted theory that deer are one of a sasquatch’s main food sources. This, backed up by the observation that most bigfoot sightings happen in areas most densely populated with deer or other similar animals, and that deer are a large primate’s main hope for enough food to sustain it in these areas. So are deer traits and behaviors influenced by those that prey on them? Like maybe sasquatches? And why should we care?

    My grandfather told me years ago that if I wanted to study a predator (in this case, Sasquatches) I should study their food, which here, we theorize is deer. Follow their food, and that predator will be somewhere around close too.  And both creatures’ existence intertwines.

    I’ve found that to sometimes solve a problem or make any breakthroughs, I have to stop and look at the whole thing from a different perspective.  And I have a very high deer population in my area that’s very accessible and very close to an area where there has been believed to be sasquatch activity in recent years.  And I wanted to go out and get some pictures of them anyway; hopefully some really good ones.  And to get good wildlife shots, you have to think and act like a hunter. So it was a good opportunity to get in some practice getting closer to them and do some unofficial experiments.  That is, after I read up on the known facts about them. And I wanted to know if I could find anything new about them…from the perspective of a person who believes bigfoot could be roaming the same forest areas.
 But first, the facts.

*Whitetails blend amazingly well with their surroundings. They are a beautiful reddish-brown color in the warmer months and more of a grayish-brown during the stark winter months.

*They have a four-chambered stomach that allows them to digest the wide variety of plant foods they eat.  So they are cud chewers like cows. They don’t chew much while they’re eating, and later, when they rest, they regurgitate the food and chew it again.

*They have scent glands in their feet that leave scent trails and allow them to communicate with other deer.

*Whitetails get their name from the dense white hair on the underside of their tales. They use this as a warning signal to other deer. They’ll blow air hard through their nostrils and throw their tails into the air like flags when they’re alarmed.

*They can run at speeds that are recorded to reach 30 mph. (48 Kilometers)

*They can jump over objects up to nine feet high. (3 meters)

*They can leap distances of up to 30 feet. (9 meters)

*They basically stay in a single territory their entire lives, never leaving, unless they’re driven out by predators or human expansion. They usually run together in small herds led by an older female.

*A full-grown whitetail will reach heights of up to 3 feet and weigh up to 200 lbs.

*Their average life span is around 11 years.

*Whitetails can populate quickly. Females, known as does, give birth to one to three offspring at a time, usually in May or June. And an average whitetail can produce up to 35 babies in its 7-year lifespan.  The babies, called fawns, are born reddish-brown with white spots to blend in with their spring surroundings.

*A whitetail’s eyes see very well in up to a 310 degree wide-angle range without moving its head. But they are believed to have trouble focusing in on objects and to be color-blind.

*They have a very keen sense of hearing and it’s believed they can measure how far away a sound is by listening. Muscles in their head allow them to see and hear without moving their heads. And their ears move independently in all directions so they can hear all around them without moving their heads.

*Only the bucks grow antlers which can have varying numbers of “points” or tines. I’ve seen up to ten points. During mating season, also called rut, they use them to fight over territory and the right to mate with does in that territory.

*Bucks mark their territory by scraping bark from trees with their antlers.

Not more than 15 feet from her, I was trying to get this doe to turn and look at me so I could take her picture. But even though I was so close, she was more interested in a possibly bigger threat in the other direction. She was listening to the crows cawing about a quarter mile away sounding an alarm that there was a predator or other disturbance in the woods in that direction. Then the deer in that area slowly moved to the opposite end of the preserve away from the sounds of the crows. (Photo:©Dorraine Fisher)

     And so, if deer are a sasquatches sustaining food source, how has that shaped deer behavior and evolution? Has it shaped it at all?  I found more questions than answers, but the questions raise new ideas about the behavior and evolution of both creatures.  And these are observations of deer in my area. There is no guarantee that other deer would behave the same. I’m not a scientist, and these are my opinions about them from spending hours watching them.  You can take these and 4 and a half bucks and buy a fancy cup of coffee. But here goes.

*I’ve wondered for years why deer seem to be so terribly skittish. And I really started wondering when I nearly hit one last summer as it darted out in front of my truck in wide-eyed terror.  What are they so afraid of?  Yes, there are coyotes around my area, and maybe even an occasional bobcat.  But I wondered if either of those predators would instill the kind of terror I saw in this animal’s eyes. Just curious.

*Yes, they jump at the snap of a twig, but have you ever wondered why that is? Have you ever wondered if there might be a reason for such behavior; like they’ve learned that the snap of a twig means danger?  And to hear wood knocks seems to send them into a panic. I tried this several times during the summer with the same reaction. That is, after my encounter in the summer of 2012 when I heard loud wood knocks and heard deer running in circles in the woods, only to have two fawns nearly knock me over trying to get away from…whatever it was. Yes, deer are very jumpy, but wood knocks seemed to bother them much more; much more than even my truck door slamming or dogs barking in the distance.  Some sounds didn’t seem to bother them much at all.

*Deer respond quickly to the alarms of other animals. Very often, it’s the crows that give the warning.  I’ve witnessed deer leaving an area when the crows start squawking an alarm that I’m there.  Many times the deer won’t move out of the area completely until the crows have decided I’m a threat. It’s just interesting.  If the crows sound the alarm that I’m there, then they would certainly send out an alarm about any other predator or disturbance. It was frustrating trying to get close to the deer when the crows were around, but I also decided that the crows could be an asset. They know about all the little disturbances in the woods before I do…and they’re all too ready to tell me all about it.  Crazy questions started to run through my mind. Could they be an indicator of ANY predator that might be lurking? Like maybe even a sasquatch?

*Whitetail territory is amazingly small, perhaps a square mile or so. As long as there’s enough food and safety, I find the exact same deer in nearly the same areas every day at the same time of day, especially during cud-chewing time.  Usually older females with their offspring and younger followers.  Males tend to wander more but still seem to stay close to the same small territory, especially if the does are there also.  But I’ve heard some people asking if sasquatches migrate.  Predators usually follow their favorite prey. Deer generally do not migrate, but does this mean sasquatches don’t migrate either?  Most creatures move if their food source runs out or migrates to another area…or they’re driven out by humans.

*A deer can be brought down by a bobcat or coyote. But these predators have trouble bringing down a healthy full-grown adult whitetail.  Of course, a deer that runs out in front of your vehicle could be running from any other predator. But when they’re running at top speed in total terror, with no regard for anything else that could kill them, like your car, in areas of sasquatch sightings, I have to wonder if there isn’t more to the story of these events.

*Whitetails are said to be able to run up to 30 mph, but I speculate that they can move faster in certain situations. A friend of mine observed a whitetail running in a corn field beside his truck as he was traveling around approximately 40 mph. Of course, this was not a scientific test.  But I believe in cases of fear and panic, adrenaline may move them much faster than we think.

*Of course, gunshots disturb them, but hunting season is really only a small part of their year. Do the sounds of gunshots bother them because they’re familiar with the sound of guns? Or is it because the popping noise of shotguns resembles a loud wood knock? Something they may hear on regular basis all year long? I just wonder.

    Of course, I’m only speculating about all of this. These are my own crazy questions and curiosities.  But the reason I do this is to think about it differently and look at it all from a different angle, and to hopefully find something new to contribute.

An animal’s traits and behaviors are influenced by its food source and its danger source. There is no way this could be avoided. Animals evolve better ways to cope and survive with the challenges around them. If not, they simply don’t survive at all. So if deer are the main food source of a sasquatch, the deer have a story to tell about what’s hunting them and they’ve evolved to deal with that.
Maybe this all seems a bit simplistic, but sometimes it comes down to obvious, simple  things.  Sometimes the answer is right in front of us and we don’t see it because we think it should be more complicated.   Like this photo story I’m calling The Whitetail Project, anytime there’s a puzzler like bigfoot on the prowl, if you hit a wall in trying to find answers, and you can’t make a breakthrough, try looking at it from the other side of the fence.
