Bigfoot: Female Researchers Share Their Perspectives

By Dorraine Fisher

Researching bigfoot is an experience like nothing else. And everyone who does it has a slightly different approach to it. And it’s historically been mostly men who trekked the woods in search of what many used to call a “monster.”  Men often pursue bigfoot as a conquest. They often approach with what they consider to be logic and reason. Most are out to prove these creatures do in fact exist. And they will spend a lot of time and energy out there trying. They have more of a hands-on approach and are often highly competitive. And of course, not all are the same but men often have a more aggressive or just a more methodical  “businesslike” approach to finding bigfoot.

But as bigfoot encounters have not been limited to just men,  in the last ten to 15 years a lot of women have joined the quest and started doing their own research. And they often have a radically different approach in their methods. And methods vary widely. Some female researchers have an almost motherly approach to how they do research. They often approach bigfoot areas more gently. And many have said they don’t care as much about proving bigfoot exists as much as they do about protecting them,  keeping them out of harm’s way, and making sure they have plenty of space to exist in peace. But they also have the same burning curiosity about them. They want to find the areas in which they live, and they sometimes want to find ways to communicate with them. They are less apt to share their research findings and are less willing to debate about them when they do present their findings. It’s not necessarily competition for them.
More Strange Activity And Possible Tracks Found In Illinois
By Dorraine Fisher

Last week, I reported a some strange goings on in one of my woodland areas. And as I was investigating the weird structures I found, I thought I might have spotted a black head peeking up over some tall weeds in the distance when I was driving through. And I searched a major portion of the area in question to see if I could find any footprints, but the ground was so solid and dry that nothing could be found.

But in the meantime, the rains came. And the hard clay of the area turned to mud. And it was then I knew I needed to go back out and look around again. I had cruised through there briefly in the middle of the week before the rain and hiked a short distance only to find another structure that I hadn’t seen before. And I planned to return on the weekend. And when I did, this is what I found.

It’s an arch of sorts made from trees that could not have been broken off and stuck into place by a human. The branches were much too large.

My day started pretty early this morning. I headed out to retrieve my game cameras from area 1. The plan was to pick up the cams and then return home to see what was actual on the cameras and then head back out to another location. So, this was to be a quick in and out on the retrieval.

I documented the retrieval process and inserted the game cam captures in the video. One major bummer was that the Browning game cam malfunctioned and most of the videos were corrupted and were not viewable.  I actually have software that attempts to save the video, but it didn't work on the videos.

In any case, here is the short video of the retrieval and game cam captures.

As some of you may know, when I go out in the field to conduct bigfoot research I can not "Go Live" because I really get back in the bush and don't have any cell phone signal. I know going live is a very popular thing among bigfoot researchers and fans of the subject. So, I thought I would create a new series entitled "Almost Live".  It will be the raw, 95 percent or more, unedited and uncut footage from some of my outings.

We make a big effort to share the majority of our research efforts with everyone. I know sometimes it is not very exciting and maybe even down right boring, but we share the good, the bad, and the boring. Sometimes we walk for miles looking for clues that bigfoot is in the area. Many times we don't find anything at all. This is a very large and difficult task that we are doing, but we love it even on slow or bad days.

With that said, here is the first episode of "Almost Live"

I recently posted about the possibility of a Bigfoot Swat Team and it drew some quick dismissals from some people while others kind of had heard the same things. Well not long after my post I got a report from a man I'll call Dan, and Dan had an interesting story to relay.

Here is what Dan said:

"Hey Thomas, I just read your new article, super interesting. I have a story for you. I'm not sure if it's related but maybe.
A guy that I knew went bear hunting in the mountains behind where we lived in Nice, Ca. He came back very rattled. He said that he was walking along and he saw some people in white hazmat suits poking around. He just waited behind a tree until they moved off. He was really curious as to what they were doing so he went over there and started looking around. He found a wallet. He opened up the wallet and was stunned to find the id was CIA.
He was just looking it over and he heard, click, click, click. He looked up and he was surrounded by guys in full camo and m16's. One of the men said, give me the wallet. He handed it over and the guys just walked away and left him standing there dumbfounded. This was in 1991, in a very remote part of the forest. I have no idea what it was about but it was very strange."

Now, to me this seems very odd that a full cameo team would be in the middle of nowhere with M16's and some CIA agents and with people in hazmat suits. Is it bigfoot related, I guess we can't say for sure but it is strange.

But wait that is not all, without going into any great detail I also got a type of warning about my original post, I can't go into details about all that was said but I must have hit on something to get this blunt warning.

If anymore odd stories or weirdness happens I'll try to post it. Send your reports to us via the "report a sighting" link above.

Coming Up Against Feral Hogs

How To Recognize The Signs Of Feral Swine In Your Area

By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher

            If you want to talk about monsters in the woods, these guys are a lot scarier than Bigfoot.
            There are plenty of predators in the woods to watch out for, and feral hogs aren’t often the first ones you think of when you’re hiking, hunting, or camping. But you do need to be careful and aware of the signs of these highly dangerous animals in your area.

            First introduced in America by explorer Hernando De Soto in the 1500’s where they were allowed

 free range around the camps, feral hog populations are spreading fast. Once only a serious problem in the southern states, the scourge is now spreading to the northern and western states. It’s so bad in fact, that individual state governments like Missouri are declaring war by allowing open season on them most of the year; asking that hunters and anyone who encounters them to kill them on sight. 

            According to the Missouri Department of Conservation a feral hog is: “Any hog, including Russian and European wild boar, that is not conspicuously identified by ear tags or other identification, and is roaming freely on public or private land without the land manager’s or landowner’s permission.”
This is a very broad definition. Any swine running wild, including abandoned pets and released livestock could fall under the category of feral swine.
            All swine are highly intelligent and capable of surviving on their own without help from humans.  They are one of the few domestic animals that can.  And here are some important facts to note:
   Feral hogs are highly adaptable to any terrain, situation, or climate
   They reproduce rapidly. Females become sexually mature at 6 months and can birth to a large brood (3-8 piglets) twice a year.
   They have very few natural enemies except humans. Only young, small hogs are in much danger of predation by other animals.
   They will eat ANYTHING including worms, lizards, small mammals, and the young or eggs of ground nesting birds...and YOU if they get the chance.  

                    Quite often, farmers, hunters, or hikers don’t know hogs are around until they see one or discover extensive damage from them. While hunting or hiking private and public lands that are known for feral swine populations, there are some telltale signs of occupation:
   Signs of rooting. This looks like an area of ground has been completely turned over and destroyed by hogs looking for food under the dirt.
   Nests or bedding areas.
   Rubbing spots on trees or posts.
   Wallowing spots or hollowed spots of mud or dirt where hogs have been rolling.

            But what do you do if you encounter one face to face?
            Underestimating a hog’s speed and ferocity can be a very deadly mistake.  Here are some tips to understanding swine behavior.
   Dominant males show certain signs of dominant behavior and aggression; an authoritative gait, head held high, and all the signs he is poised to stand his ground no matter what. And the size of the hog doesn’t matter in this case. A dominant small hog can be nearly as dangerous as a dominant larger one. If he lowers his head and stares you down, he’s ready to strike if necessary and should be considered VERY dangerous. That is, if he isn’t already charging in your direction.
   The hog without dominant traits, that stiffens his legs and appears to lean forward is not so confident, but no less dangerous if approached. He’s afraid. And a fearful hog, like any other fearful animal,  can be much more dangerous than a dominant one. 
   Beware of a hog that is slobbering. When a hog poises himself for confrontation, he will pop his jaw which is said to sharpen his long, pointed cutter teeth. This causes a foaming in his mouth which is a telltale sign he’s more than ready to fight.
   Be wary if you have the animal cornered. He may be standing still, assessing the situation. But don’t mistake this behavior for a surrender. He’s desperate and he’s weighing his options for escape. And he’ll do anything to accomplish that.

            Bottom line: BEWARE! Feral hogs are among the most dangerous wild animals you’ll encounter in the woods. Don’t EVER underestimate them. It’s advisable in known swine-occupied areas to carry a weapon powerful enough to bring a large one down if necessary. And if you take your dogs with you out there, please consider their protection too. *******
