Exploring for Ginseng & Bigfoot

Hi Gang, I'm going to keep this  a very short  post. I finally got a chance to get back in the mountains and boy I can tell you I really needed it. All this sitting around was getting to me.

Well, anyways I had a very good day hunting ginseng and looking for Bigfoot evidence. Found some good sized ginseng and some interesting stick formations in the woods.

Please check out the video, and I hope you enjoy it.

Exploring for Ginseng and Bigfoot

September 1st is the opening day of ginseng season in Kentucky. I take you along with me as I return to an area that has bigfoot activity in the past. I look for ginseng and and explore for bigfoot evidence.

So, come with me and enjoy a beautiful day in the mountains of Southeastern Kentucky!

I thought I would just share another day of exploring the woods of Kentucky with everyone. In this video I'm hunting ginseng and looking for bigfoot evidence.

I do manage to find a few things that are interesting and I talk some about bigfoot, the bigfoot community, films and social media.

I hope you enjoy the video and some out our beautiful mountains.
Here is the video:

I got the following report via Facebook Messenger. The person wishes to remain anonymous, so for this report we will just call him Pete.

This report comes from the Black Mountain area in Harlan county Kentucky. Black Mountain is an excellent area for Bigfoot and is home to numerous Bigfoot reports.

Black Mountain is the highest mountain peak in the Commonwealth of Kentucky with a summit elevation of 4,145 feet  above mean sea level and a top-to-bottom height of over 2,500 feet.

Here is the report:

As many of you know, I spend a large amount of time out in the mountains doing everything from Bigfoot research to just exploring. Well, I also do ginsenging, when it is in season, to go along with my search for Bigfoot evidence.

On this particular day, October the 18th, I had a specific area I wanted to get in. The reason was that in the years gone by I had found a good amount of ginseng in that area. I had also found several Bigfoot related findings in this particular area over the years. This included Bigfoot tracks and several possible stick structures.

As I entered the area I found a few interesting and possible Bigfoot related items. But what happened next forced me to leave that immediate  area. I encounter three bears that included a mother bear and two cubs. But that was not the end of my encounters with bears on that day. I have decided to release a video of how this day when. The video is a little longer than what I was shooting for but I did cut it down quite a bit.

Here is the video.

Welcome to another episode of Almost Live. This is episode 8 in the series. In this episode I'm in one of the roughest areas I have been in this year. The area was thick with briers and high weeds. The high weeds hid potholes and rocks. I actually re-injured my left leg and had to take several days off because of it. The leg is feeling much better so I may get to take another trip out before too long.

I found a few interesting things during this journey, including the above Rock Stack. Rock stacks are sometimes thought to be made by Bigfoot. I explain how and why this one was made. 

Hope you enjoy the episode.

Welcome to another episode of Almost Live. This is a very busy time of year for me. This is ginseng season. The time of year that I'm in the mountains more than normal. I do spend large amounts of time in the forest, but during ginseng season I'm out even more. I enjoy hunting ginseng and it gives me yet another reason to walk the mountains. It also gives me more opportunities to search for bigfoot related evidence. To travel into areas I normally do not get in but a couple times a year. It is a chance to learn more about nature, animals and bigfoot.

With that said, here is episode 7 of Almost Live, I hope you enjoy it.

Welcome to yet another episode of Almost Live. In this episode I was not feeling very good but I sure didn't want a nice day to pass me by. I covered a pretty large area hunting for ginseng and looking for possible bigfoot sign.  I did find some ginseng and some other things that you might find interesting.

Here is the episode.

Here is another Almost Live episode. On this particular day, this was my second outing of the day. Earlier in the day I had picked up my game cams from Area 1 and now was setting them in this new area. This is the area where I had recently found several stick formations.

In this episode I also show you several other interesting things from my neck of the woods. This post and the previous post go hand in hand. I recommend you watch them both.

Here is the episode, I hope you enjoy it.

Well, today was another fine adventure. I was able to return to the area where I recently found a couple of bigfoot structures. I really couldn't wait to get back into that area and check it out more. I had also found some pretty good ginseng in that area, so it was a double win that day.  Today did not disappoint at all. I was able to find several other bigfoot related things. If you want to actually learn about some of the behavior patterns of bigfoot, you really need to watch this episode of Almost Live and the previous episode. They are packed with findings of bigfoot behavior.
For me on a personal level, it is exciting to find all these structures. I like learning and finding new things.

Here is the episode, hope you enjoy it.

Welcome to Episode 3 of Almost Live. My original thinking was that this would be a slightly shorter episode than the last, but it actually turned out to be a little longer. Today was very good and it has got me a little excited. I make several interesting discoveries and find some pretty good ginseng. Sometimes as a bigfoot researcher, you get in a lull and need to find some stuff to re-energize your battery. Today was one of those days for me, even though I have been finding things, today was a day that really uplifted me.

Here is the episode I hope you enjoy the video, it is a bit long but stay with it.

Okay, I'm back with another raw, uncut episode of Almost Live. This second episode is full of some very interesting things.This episode is much longer and much better, I think.
Any time I go out looking for ginseng, I also keep an eye out for any bigfoot related findings...and today I was not disappointed.

Check out this episode:

The only way I can tell this possible event is to back up a few days and fill in some gaps. First, it is ginseng season and that puts me in the woods several times a week. Often times, I'm in very remote areas. Areas that you can only reach if you walk for a few hours. So, a few days ago I was in an area, an area where I have been many times and didn't really feel as if there were bigfoot in it. I do know there are bigfoot in the general area but I didn't feel like there was any on this particular area of the mountain. I had never really seen any thing that would make me think that bigfoot was in this particular spot.

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!
