Is Bigfoot Building A Fence?
A Gradual Conclusion About Behavior

By Dorraine Fisher


All bigfoot researchers have seen evidence that they do some seemingly crazy things. And my woods are no exception. I’ve had a return of activity in my area since August of this year and even though I’ve been poking around out there fairly often and other people have set up game cameras in the area, the activity seems to be increasing instead of decreasing. And I’m finding a strange pattern developing in all the “manipulations” that are taking place out there.

A couple of months ago when I began really looking at this area, it became clear to me that this definitely wasn’t human activity. I’m hard-pressed to see humans anywhere around here except near the water where they do their fishing. And I can leave this area at dark and return at dawn early in the morning and see new structures have been built. Humans generally don’t go out manipulating trees and branches in the woods in the dark of night.  And as I looked around, I found something different.

Many times we hear and read stories about Bigfoot abducting adults and children. We even have some stories that claim that Bigfoot eats small children. Then we have cases where people go missing in national parks and sometimes it is thought that Bigfoot is behind some of them. One of the most famous potential Bigfoot abduction cases that happen in a national park was the Dennis Martin Case.

There is also many tales from Native American history that talks about Sasquatch abducting and sometimes eating people.

But this report I want to share today has a much different outcome.

Large Cardinal stops in front of the game camera. Year date is off.

One of the many techniques many of us use in the quest to capture bigfoot evidence is the deployment of game cameras. The hope of course is to catch an image or video of bigfoot but that is a pretty tough task. One thing that makes this difficult is the shear volume of forest one needs to cover and the limited view range of game cameras. It is basically like looking for a needle in a haystack.
But all is not lost. Game cameras are still an important tool in the field of bigfoot research. The use of game cameras will let us know what kind of animals are in the area. This is needful information as it lets us understand if the area can sustain large animals. If we know what animals are in the area, it can help us identify possible dangers and evidence.

So, I think it is a good idea for us to share some of this years game camera captures. Most things captured are easily recognizable but there are a couple that I don't know what they are, maybe you can identify them.

Here is a short video followed by some more commentary.
Jay, OK
A few days ago, I received the follow bigfoot sighting report. I delayed posting the report as I was attempting to contact the person with a couple follow up questions. I emailed the submitter but have yet to get a reply. So, I have decided to post up this report, even though it needs a little follow up work.
If anyone else in this area has seen or had a similar experience please let us know.

Here is the report.


I was recently sent a series of three photos of what just might be a bigfoot track. The area they were found in is pretty remote. The tracks were found and photographed by Tony Felosi. Some of you may know or have heard of Tony, he is a paranormal investigator here in my area.
I've gotten to know Tony over the last several month and he would not have sent this to me unless he thought it had the potential to be a real bigfoot track.

This track was found about 2 months ago and it appears it has washed out quite a bit before being discovered. The track appeared to cross over the normal pathway. You would think that a person would walk along the pathway and not just have a random crossing of it. In the picture below is a close up of what appears to be toes.



Will Bigfoot Cause A Paradigm Shift?
Extra Large Footprints To A More Enlightened World
By Dorraine Fisher


It’s possible I romanticize Bigfoot way too much. Maybe I read way too much into them. But the reason I do that is because I think they’re a huge deal...in changing the way people think and in the course of human evolution and the way we view our world.

And yes, this sounds pretty cheesy, but I’ll tell you why I think this way.

I think we humans are on our way toward an enormous shift in the way we think and perceive everything around us. I think our minds are evolving in many ways. And examining all things metaphysical and paranormal is a big part of that shift. It’s about believing in possibilities. Imagining that things we can’t actually see or put our hands on still may exist. That the definition of something being real is a little different than we thought.

I think those who believe in the paranormal or metaphysical have had some kind of experience in that sense, are much further ahead in this evolution. They’re either well able to imagine there is a whole world of existence beyond what they can see and touch, or they don’t have to imagine it because they’ve actually experienced it. But either way, their minds are open, and that’s what it takes to advance to the next level.

Last night, I started to work on an article countering a skeptic’s reasons why bigfoot probably doesn’t exist. And, as I was trying to formulate my arguments and articulate them well, it suddenly occurred to me that it simply didn’t matter. Whatever I said would either be met with agreement or opposition. And this depends on the personal paradigms of the reader. It didn’t matter what I said or how I said it. People will either believe or they won’t. My words won’t change this. And here’s why.

People have ALWAYS already made up their minds...from the beginning of humanity. And neuroscience says that one of the biggest flaws in the human mind is, if we think we already know something, we won’t look at any other information about it. We’ll just stop right there and not move any further forward. And that’s where our evolution stops too. We want to believe we’re right. We need to believe it. And we’ll actively look ONLY for evidence that supports what we already believe. And we’ll dismiss all other ideas.

We see this all the time in politics and religion and even in science. People will say another’s religious beliefs are wrong because they’re different, or they’ll only watch news stations that tell the news in a way that supports what they already believe about the world. Or they’ll reject new ideas simply because the scientific community denies there’s enough evidence to support them. So many minds are closed in this very way.

I think people are often afraid to change their minds. Afraid to go rogue and think for themselves. Afraid to stray away from authorities they believe have all the answers. Afraid to imagine it all might be different than they’ve always believed. I guess it’s like admitting they were wrong before. And wrong is somehow the worst thing we can be, we think. So people will stick to their current construct, even if it’s outdated or there’s simply no evidence left to support it. But it’s simply too much trouble to change the values we’ve always had and built our lives around, or to rewrite every chapter in the book. Even if we really should.

So, that’s why I say that people who aspire to or believe in things paranormal or metaphysical or just plain elusive have a distinct advantage. Maybe they’ve always been open to new things, or better yet, maybe they’ve been made to believe something different than they did before through an experience. So the pathway has been opened in their minds. And that pathway is a much bigger deal than we often realize.

But this is how we all should aspire to be.

Because as long as we have this attitude that we already know the “big truth,” and there’s nothing new we can learn, we’ve already failed as a species. How can we really call ourselves intelligent if we can’t wrap our minds around the idea that our own ideas about a lot of things may be flat-out wrong? How can we truly evolve as an intelligent being if we can’t challenge the very thoughts that are sitting in our heads holding us down right this minute?

This is called being stuck. And in order to move forward and become the humans we were all meant to be, we have to get unstuck.

But can we do that?

Some of us can. Some of us who’ve already accepted the strange, the unknown, and the not-quite-physical as part of their personal reality.

In this episode I discuss some of the theories about game cameras and why it has proven so difficult to capture an image of bigfoot. One theory is that bigfoot can "zap" a game cam and cause it to malfunction. In this episode I also talk about some local news of a man who is booby trapping game cams in my area. 

I hope you enjoy this episode.


I hope to find time to do more episodes in the future.

Thanks

Not actual photo, used for reference only.

Today, I was treated to several stories and reports about bigfoot. One of which I have permission to share with our readers. This possible sighting took place here in Kentucky back in October of 2012.
The area of the sighting is one that I'm fairly familiar with, as it is a location I have been in before.

Here is what Tony told me about the event:

Over the years, I have taken in many reports and stories of bigfoot taking various items. Everything from apples to hogs. I have even heard a few reports of chickens being taken, so the following report of missing chickens is not too surprising. But there is more to the story, that includes a visual encounter.

Once again, the submitter wants the area and his identity to remain anonymous. Some may not understand this, but I can assure you that talking about bigfoot openly will get you many weird looks and a few "what are you on?" comments. As for not disclosing a location I also understand that as well. There are people who might come to your area and disrupt the bigfoot in some way and cause the activity to stop. While this report is older, there seems to be continuing activity in the area, according to what I was told. With that said, I can tell you that this event happened in Oklahoma.

Here is the report and what the submitter had to say about this particular encounter.

- Start Report -      


"This took place around 1985. My dad and mother were at my grandparents eating dinner. This house was outside of a town of around 50 people.

They had finished dinner and mom was walking out the door first and something ran by her very fast and very large. Keep in mind they were standing on a porch that was around 4 foot tall and mom is 5'4.

She said this thing was a reddish brown and unbelievably fast. She fell back into my dad at which the whole group was laughing but not mom. She said there was something out there. Dad was being a normal man and told mom he would protect her and went out dragging her behind.

Then from the light of one of the windows in the house he saw something squatting behind a large pine tree in the front. It was swaying. He immediately shoved mom back in the house and grabbed the shotgun they left by the door. He went back out and it was gone.

He and mom ran to the car and left. The rest of the night my grandparents heard strange vocalizations and screams. My grandpa was saying it was a mountain lion because he was always the skeptic, until he saw it one day far in the future.

Also, their chicken house had a large hole through the wire and 2 chickens were missing."

- End Report -

If you thank about it a little bit, chickens sitting on their roost would be easy pickings for a bigfoot or any predator. Bigfoot is very much an opportunist. There are several reports of bigfoot taking a hunter's fresh deer kill or of a bigfoot scooping up road kill.

Once again, I thank the person who submitted this interesting encounter to me. To my knowledge, this report has never been filed or published before now. It is also good when someone comes forward with encounters that have never been reported. It adds more history and gives all of us another chance to learn more details about bigfoot and it gives us another story to talk about. 


Thanks

I recently returned to my bigfoot research area to collect some games cameras I placed out about one month ago. This area has, in years gone by, been an active area not only for bigfoot but numerous other animals. But in the last year or so the activity has seemed to have died down. Now, with fall quickly approaching, I wanted to try out some game cameras in the area to see if any activity had returned to the area.

What follows is a video of my return trip to retrieve the previously set cameras and then another video of what all was captured on the game cameras. I try very hard to be honest and transparent with my bigfoot research, even though, parts of it may seem very boring to many.

I did have a very memorable close encounter with a doe and a fawn on my trip to collect my cameras. For me it was nothing short of amazing and something that truly does not happen everyday. I think you will find my doe encounter and what I have to say about it, interesting in how it pertains to bigfoot.

Here is the video collecting the game cameras.


After returning home, I downloaded all the videos and pictures off the game cameras. I think there are some interesting captures. The black bear is a nice captures and it appears many animals are returning to the area. I can only hope that the bigfoot also return.

Here is the video of the game camera captures.



Hopefully, in the coming months, I can get out more and find us some more interesting things.


Thanks

Tye's foot next to track

Recently, the bigfoot hunting team of Corey and Tye discovered what appears to be a very nice bigfoot track. Here is what the team from Iowa reported about the tracks.

"This is a footprint we found on a rock bar in the river last week. You can see the toe impression and heal. I wear size 13 shoe and shoe is 13" long and my foot is little over 11" long but this print is around 14 and wider than my shoe. There were big broken rocks near the print and we heard rock clacking on the rock bar the night before. We found a pair of footprint impressions nearby that were nearly 2 foot long, it's probably from the 13 footer we have seen several times. A 22" plaster cast was taken from our local state park but had disappeared."


Found in Oregon.

Oregon Research Update  - Stick Formations

Recently, Crypto Crew team members Bobby and Corinna Long were sent some interesting photos by Mitch.(Last name withheld) These are from their home state of Oregon and near them. The photos shows several unusual tree/stick formations. The above photograph is very similar to a formation I found in my home state of Kentucky. Here is a photo from the Kentucky formation. Both of these similar structures were found in areas with bigfoot activity. 

Found in KY
There is a general consensus that bigfoot does do odd things with sticks. This would include tree breaks, teepees and other formations.

But that was not all the Oregon researcher found. Here are a could more photos.

Found in Oregon.
An "X" was found. There is some differing opinions on what an "X" may represent. Some think it is a welcome sign, while others conclude that it is a warning to stay away. It may not be for humans at all and it may be only meaningful to bigfoot, for all we know. The discovery of an  "X" formation is reported by many researchers. It often is found after some type of bigfoot report. I have personally found several of these formations. Most of the time the tree limbs have been broken off from another location and the "X" formed in a different place.

Found in Oregon.

Arches and tree bends found in same general area in Oregon. Now, we all know that weather can have this type of effect sometimes and it takes careful analysis to make a determination. Sometimes, we have to take into account if other odd formations have been found in the area and if there is a history of bigfoot sightings. Similar structures are often reported by bigfoot researcher from all parts of the United States. It is interesting and needs more study. 

 


This is just some of the things us researchers have to keep and eye out for while in the forest. As a person who goes into the woods often, I find it odd that I mostly find odd stick formations in areas where there are reported bigfoot activity. That makes it easy to conclude that bigfoot might be doing these formations. While we may not understand what they mean, it appears to be part of bigfoot behavior.

The Oregon team has been somewhat limited by the fact it is fire season. During fire season some access is cut off and some areas you are not allowed to be in.

Thanks goes to Mitch for sharing his photos.

Howdy, Just a very short version of  My Crypto World. This is episode 12 and in it I talk about my agenda for the day. I include some talk about bears, hogs and pistols.

Here is the latest episode.



As always, thanks for watching and supporting our efforts. We have many more things planned, our research efforts will continue. 

Thanks

On a recent research trip to East Bethany, N.Y, I found three possible bigfoot knuckle prints. The prints were behind the house we were staying at during our investigation. I found three prints in line and made a casting of the best one. The possible knuckle prints were about 6 feet apart, that is what made me think it could possibly be a bigfoot.  It appeared as if it was moving along fairly good without any problems. There were also a lot of deer tracks around the possible knuckle prints.

Here is the casting and some measurements.


The three knuckle prints, I assume, are the index finger, the middle finger and ring finger. Each proposed metatarsal ranges from 2 1/4 -2 3/4 inches long, as opposed to my 1 1/4-1 3/4 inch finger bones.
For more of a comparison - my middle finger is about 1 3/4 inches in length as seen in this photo.
  
Now, in what I'm assuming is the middle finger in the print casting, the length is much greater. The middle finger appears to be closer to 3 inches.
Here is a hard to see photo.

While, I can't say for 100 percent that these knuckle prints were made by a bigfoot, I think it is safe to say that whatever made them was much larger than my hand print. I also thought it would be better to make a casting, just in case.

We finally got a little break from all the rain and I go check out my bigfoot research area and set up some game cameras. I was wearing some new hiking boots and they were hurting my feet, so I cut the overall trip a little short. I revisit the area where I found and documented a stick formation for nearly three years. I also return to the area where I got the game cam picture of bigfoot.

Here is the video.




After I got home it started raining again. I hope to make some more outings soon.


Thanks

New Possible Sighting in Oregon

On or around January 14,2016 at around 7:15 am a man named Chris was taking his daughter to the bus stop when he looked in his rear view on the way out of his driveway and seen what he thought may have been a bear standing on two legs watching them go down the driveway. He stated that there had been bear there before because they live off the grid that sometimes they store food items outdoors.

After speaking to me he was then sure he had seen a bigfoot instead since it had longer legs and much more size than a black bear.
 
Although he had seen it in the mirror he was sure about it now. Since this encounter they hear occasional noises not of the norm and have been smelling a sulfur/ wet animal odor from time to time. Area near the sighting, so as not to pinpoint his home.
2184-2514 Lees creek road, Myrtle creek, Oregon 97457.
Gps 43.1326425,-123.1493605

Corinna and I have explored this area quite a few times with one actual sighting in 2004 and juvenile tracks another time. Chris lives on the same road as we do but a few more miles deeper in the forest. This story will be continued as we establish a better relationship with Chris and his daughter.

The investigation is ongoing, look for an update in the future.

It's time for another episode of The Crypto Files!
In this episode we take a look at a video of a yeti. The video was send to us by one of our followers. The figure moves to the right in the video but what is odd is that at the first of the video it is just standing there frozen. Have a look and see what you think about it...is this a real or is it a hoax?

The Crypto Files Episode 8 - Is this a real Yeti?


I got the following report in over the last few days. I understand how the witnesses felt as I have had bigfoot pace me while in the woods. I wonder if there are other witnesses that have seen or encounter a bigfoot while being near the Loosahatchie river? If so, I hope they submit it to us.

 Here is the report

- Start Report -

Name: Judy *****

Email Address: On file

State: Tennessee

County: Shelby

Date of Sighting: 1979 or 1980

Time of Day: 1:00am

Nearest Town: Memphis

Length of Sighting: 30 minutes

How many Witnesses: 2

Any Photos/Videos: no

Describe sighting in detail:

We lived on Deadfall Rd. off Brunswick Rd. in Shelby County, Tn. We like to hunt and fish and do everything outside. One night we put a flat bottom boat into the Loosahatchee River (before it was cleared by the corp of engineers)about 1979, in the summer. We put in at the Arlington bridge about midnight and would drift down to the Brunswick bridge. We were frog gigging with spot lights and keeping the legs for frying. During the drifting we heard something following us at the top of the bank. The water level was low and trees were hanging over the water. We continually said someone is following us, but we couldn't see anything. Sometimes we would say it was a deer or bear, but we knew it wasn't. We knew what deer sounded like, but we couldn't explain it. Thru the leaves it was a two legged creature and very heavy. It made us very nervous and we were experienced outdoor people.
Snakes didn't scare us or any animal. It followed us for about 30 minutes. But suddenly a large carp jumped over the front of the boat and was headed for me and I thought the animal on the bank had me. I stood up and screamed and fell backwards into the boat. My husband jumped the other way to keep the boat from flipping over. We lost most everything in the boat including the light but it was floating and we got it back. My husband was happy I didn't gig myself in the back and I was happy the creature didn't have me. We pulled ourselves together and my husband said maybe we should paddle out of here, and we didn't hear the creature anymore and we never talked about it again. We got to our car and hurried home. I didn't know what it could have been until I watched something about the Big Foot on tv. I knew after all these years, it was a big foot that was following us.

- End Report -

I can just imagine that big ol carp leaping right towards you, Judy. I have been gigging myself a few times for fish. It can be a little scary, out there in the dark, in the middle of nowhere ...but boy it can be fun as well.
I have had bigfoot pace me a couple times and it is a scary feeling.

A big thanks to Judy for sharing her story with us and I'm glad no one was hurt when you fell back in the boat.

If anyone has encountered a possible bigfoot near the Loosahatchie river, then please file the report with us.


Thanks

It's time for another chat Around the Campfire with Dorraine Fisher. In this episode Dorraine talks about skeptics. While skeptics may not be on anyone's favorites list, they can serve a helpful purpose. Dorraine talks about 3 types of skeptics and how to be a good skeptic. This episode will surly hit the nerve of a few people but it goes with the territory.

Hope you enjoy Around the Campfire - How to be a good skeptic (episode 5)

Okay, so I thought it would be kind of fun ...I hope ..to do another youtube series. This one should be easier for me to do as it should take a little less time. I'm still going to be doing all my other stuff but I hope this one will be more consistent and require a lot less editing. This first episode is called "Introduction and Bigfoot", it is a general overview of what the series is about and includes a never reported Bigfoot sighting. Hopefully the series will also help me get over my shyness a little.

I hope you enjoy it.
