Did I Have A Bigfoot Encounter When I Was Ten?
Wild Man Stories From My Grandfather
By Dorraine Fisher


Did I have a bigfoot encounter when I was 10?

Nearly 40 years ago the seeds were being planted for my love for the mysteries of the world and for all things cryptic. If anyone ever asks what shaped my unusual perceptions about the world, I always point first to my mother who gave me an old copy of Chariots of the Gods by Erick Von Daniken and who turned on the bigfoot episode of In Search Of with Leonard Nimoy and let me watch too. But second place always goes to my grandfather for showing me some weird things in the woods. And to this day, I still wonder what he was telling me because I didn’t have the presence of mind when I was young to ask the right questions about what we saw out there on one really strange day.

I was a pretty shy and solitary kid, so I naturally loved the woods. It was a good place to hide from the rest of the world. But Grandpa was the one who made it interesting.  I, for some reason had always believed that the fabled Bogie Man that children like me were always told about was a big, hairy bigfoot-type creature. Strangely,  I had this picture of him in my psyche before I even knew what a bigfoot was. So, I guess I was a natural bigfoot believer. But for some reason, the idea of this big, hairy creature prowling around didn’t really scare me all that much. Maybe I just loved the woods too much. But Grandpa and I never had a discussion about bigfoot. Bigfoot just wasn’t a thing back then. But I still wonder what he might have told me if I had asked.

Snallygaster and Other Unusual Cryptids

The Snallygaster is a dragon-like beast said to inhabit Central Maryland, the Washington, DC, metro area, and particularly the Middletown area of Frederick County, Maryland. Many may not be familiar with this weird creature but that is changing thanks to a video game. But first lets learn something more about the Snallygaster.

German immigrants first settles these areas around 1730's and early accounts say their community was terrorized by a monster called a Schneller Geist, meaning "quick ghost" in German. The snallygaster was described as half-reptile, half-bird with a metallic beak lined with razor-sharp teeth, occasionally with octopus-like tentacles. It swoops silently from the sky to pick up and carry off its victims. The earliest stories claim that this monster sucked the blood of its victims. Seven-pointed stars, which reputedly kept the snallygaster at bay, can still be seen painted on local barns.

Snallygaster is an odd creature indeed but it is not the only. The Grafton Monster is another cryptid that some might not know about. This beast is a large humanoid cryptid said to reside in the forests around Grafton, West Virginia in the US. Another very odd think about the Grafton monster is that it is a large bi-pedal creature with no visible head, and covered in slick and white seal-like skin. In 2014,the television show Mountain Monsters featured the Grafton.

These and several other cryptids are featured in a video game. That game is introducing many new people to the world of cryptids.


Bigfoot Tracks in Fresh Garden Spot

Here is another update from Corky's Research. It appears that a bigfoot, maybe more than one, walked through this freshly turned over garden ground.

Corky has been having bigfoot activity on his property for a number of years now. We recently share one of his videos that shows a figure hiding behind a tree watching a bonfire. That video was taken in 2019. That activity seems to be continuing.

Here is the video of the garden and tracks

The Delaware Death Dog - New Cryptid on the Loose!


It appears we might have a new cryptid running around in Delaware. The witness has labeled it "The Delaware Death Dog". Its kind of a catchy name if you ask me. So far, from what little we know, that after the DDD makes an appearance, death soon follows for other wildlife in the immediate area.

Just what is this large mysterious canine looking beast is up in the air. Have others seen something similar? Is it a known animal in the area? How about the deaths after the sighting, was it just a coincidence?

Check out the report and see what you think about the Delaware Death Dog.

Here is the report

Large Humanoid Seen In New Hampshire

I recently got in a report of a large bipedal sighting, that fits the description of a bigfoot with one exception. That exception is that the being had rather thin hair. This makes me wonder if it could have been an older individual or possibly one with some kind of disease. Maybe it was some other cryptid, I really don't know.

Please read over the events, if you have an idea or opinion, please let us know.

Here is the exchange between the witness and myself.



More Bigfoot Tracks From Jerimiah Fountain

We have another update from bigfoot researcher Jerimiah Fountain. For those who may not know, Jerimiah has been researching for 20 year and currently has a hotspot for activity in North Carolina. Originally from New York, Jerimiah has experienced bigfoot activity numerous times over the years and is a seasoned outdoorsman. 

What follows is a series of tracks and track casting that were discovered by Jerimiah and his team. I will give some additional information for some of the pictures.

Here we go!

Recently there was a short video released by The Sun online magazine via Twitter and it has caused a little stir.

A driver found this odd looking creature crawling around inside his care. He took a short video and many have no idea what this alien looking thing is. It has been labeled as strange, alien like, unknown creature, demon and many other spooky names.

Before I tell you what it is, lets take a look at the short video.

Here is the video:

Bigfoot Encounter and Track Castings
Interesting experience and track findings from Jerimiah Fountain. What started out as a night research trip turned a little frightful. For those who may not know, Jerimiah is a seasoned researcher with around 20 years of experience. He became seriously involved in bigfoot research after a face to face encounter in 2000.

The events described below took place in the state of North Carolina on April 27th, 2020.

Here is what Jerimiah told me about the encounter:

"Wild night in the swamp last night. Had three boulders tossed at me from three different directions. The splash they made, they had to be 20-30 lbs each. Lots of Chimp like vocals. So went to another area and sat on a knoll over looking the bayou. Sat there in the pitch black."

After hearing movement, that sounded like more than one creature, Jerimiah had this to say:

 Gargoyle Type Cryptid Seen in Iowa

I got the following report a few days ago and have been in contact with the witness via email. This could be classified as an Unknown Cryptid Report but the witnesses described it as a gargoyle. You may be surprised to know that there is a pretty large base of reports where the witness described or stated what they saw looked like a gargoyle.

The report I'm about to share with you took place Des Moines, Iowa. Des Moines is the capital of and the largest city in Iowa. It has a large population, so maybe others have had a similar sighting.

Here is the report, in the witness's on words and my questions.

Possible BigFoot Evidence Southeast Kentucky 
4-21-20


I was responding to an Illegal dumping complaint along with head Animal Control Officer Wesley Witt. Upon arriving at the dumpsite we found a few tires and barrels that had been at the location for a long while.



We proceeded up an old road trying to locate more dumpsites; we had traveled approximately 50 yards when I noticed some slide marks in the ground from something very heavy heading down hill. I was in the lead and as I stopped I motioned for Officer Witt to do the same. I did not want to contaminate the area with our prints before I had a chance to look for what may have caused the marks.



 


We were looking for morels and stumbled across some tracks. The track in the picture is deep and in hard gravel. so it had to be very heavy or a hard impact step.

The track is 18 inches long by 6 1/2 wide. There was a second track but it is not visible in pictures. We found this in Slide creek, which is near MYRTLE CREEK.

I looked closer and could see the heal and toe shapes. It is degraded a bit but has enough detail to tell it's a print.

We continued to scout the area for additional tracks and morels but didn't find any of either.

Here are a few more pictures from the area.

I was out in one of my research areas a couple days ago to change out some game cams. While there I of course looked around for signs of bigfoot. I was able to find some interesting tree breaks and one good track.

I hope to return to the area in the future but for now I though I would share a short video of some of the breaks.

Here is the video

The wife and I managed to get out in the  mountains yesterday. Our goals were to exchange out some game cameras, get in some much needed outside time, and to scout around for signs of bigfoot.

It was a great day to be out and the temperatures were good for hiking the mountains. We got the game cameras replaced and continued to explore the area. I hope to share some of the videos from the game cams in the coming days.

While we explored the area we did find a few interesting things.

On this episode of Whats in the Box I interview bigfoot researcher and event planner Jimmy Blanton. Jimmy tells us about his recent bigfoot sighting and gives an update on this years Crypto Con. We discuss details of Jimmy's sighting and compare it to other area sightings. This show is full of good information. If you have an interest in bigfoot, and who don't, then you are sure to like this episode.

Bigfoot: To Woo Or Not To Woo
By Dorraine Fisher


As if there wasn’t enough division in the entire world right now, we thought that bigfoot believers had one major thing in common that they could all hold on to and bond over: belief in bigfoot. But sadly that isn’t the case.

One half of the community believes bigfoot is nothing more than an undiscovered species that we’re just starting to discover, and they want to prove they’re real. The other half that’s grown exponentially in the last few years claims to have telepathic or possibly even spiritual experiences with these beings and they feel no need whatsoever to prove to anyone that they exist. In fact, they want to understand them better in order to understand how everyone can leave them alone. But the other camp dismisses all of it as what is now referred to as woo.

I now, as a bigfoot researcher and writer am caught in between the two belief systems and have been repeatedly asked if I’m “a woo researcher or non-woo?"

Many of you have probably already seen this picture floating around on social media. I seen it a couple weeks ago and just kind of passed it off. But today I took a closer look and find the image interesting. If it is real it could be one of several things. Maybe it is a undiscovered species, or some type of birth defect or maybe even some type of injury. Then again maybe it is nothing more than a creation and just a hoax.

If you are not familiar with the back story here it is along with another photo.

Well, we finally got a small break from all the rain and the temperatures came up some. I figured it would be a good day to go In The Woods!

I set out to one of my research areas to set up a couple of game cameras and scout out the area. I had not been in this area in several months, other than a very brief look around back on a snowy day. I wanted to see how the area had changed as there had been come flooding in our area. I also wanted to look for tracks and stick formations.

While in the area I make a few discoveries and talk on several topics that I think some will find interesting. I offer some tips for setting game cams, talk about the young boy who was killed in an animal attack and address my weight loss for those who have had some concerns about it. And on top of all of that you get to see some beautiful mountains.

Here is the video, I hope you enjoy it.

Just got off the phone with TCC team member Tony Felosi. He gathered a bigfoot track report today that was pretty interesting.

The man talking to Tony, who we will keep anonymous and call Jim, was a bit reluctant to share his story at first. From what he told Tony it is something that he normally don't tell people.


Here is the story and details of the event.

I was just checking out some various YouTube videos when I ran across a recently posted video of what is claimed to be a bigfoot.

From what I can gather the people who captured the video live, kind of, off the grid in northern Michigan. This man's wife had heard some odd sounds coming from the woods and started filming.

On review of the video you can see a dark hairy looking figure hiding behind a tree. The figure moves from side to side as the camera is moving from left to right.

Now of course this could be nothing more that a hoax or prank but you take a look at the video and see what you think.

Here is the video

While Virginia maybe be for lovers, it may also be for lovers of the bigfoot phenomenon.
Virginia has a total area of 42,774.2 square miles, this includes water coverage, of which 65 percent of is forest area. So in other words, there is a lot of forest area in Virginia, making it an excellent place for wildlife and bigfoot.

Recently got in a new report of a possible bigfoot sighting in Virginia. What is interesting about this is that about six or eight months ago a friend of might had a sighting in this very same area. What my friend saw he described as a cinnamon brown color.

Here is the new report
