Is there enough evidence to convince people this is real or fake?

Here is yet another attempt to show that the video "Slowed and Magnified" (Aka -Creature in the giant sequoias) is a fake. I originally did an enhancement of this video a few years back and then later revisited it with better software. Now I have obtained some new photos to share, sorry, I can't remember who I got them from. I will not take the time to get into the whole back story and the inconsistency  and stuff in this post.

I hope you watch the video until the end and the new evidence is shown.



If you are still not convinced, ...well I love ya anyways.

Thanks

Sounds From Kentucky


This is a few small snips from a larger audio recording by Tabatha Steagall. The recording was made in Sept. of 2014. The sounds were recorded in Kentucky. Tabatha has recorded other odd sounds in this area. One of her other recording was featured in the documentary Bigfoot: The Evidence Files.

She is not claiming this is a Bigfoot making these sounds, but ask me to enhance the audio in an effort to determine what some of the sounds are.
Some of the sounds are coyotes but what are the other sounds? Could it have been a Bigfoot?

Here is the enhanced clip


Sounds from KY - Enhanced (recorded 2014) by TheCryptoCrew

A big thanks goes to Tabatha for letting us attempt to enhance the audio and for letting us share it.
In the original clip the audio was really hard to hear, even with the speakers all the way up, but now after the enhancement we have a better shot at identifying the sounds.

So what do you hear?

Thanks

GIANTS IN AMERICA BY STEWART TAYLOR

Throughout world history and legends, there are documented accounts of ordinary men coming in contact with humanoid giants of various sorts. The Titans, Ogres and Trolls are just a few of many widely used examples. There are also similar records contained within various religious documentations. For one, the Christian Bible clearly relates how giants came to be among men in its very first book, Genesis, chapter 6.
In today’s world, a vast majority of folks give this subject little serious consideration or thought. They quickly discount this particular information as merely just fables or fairy tales. Most consider it on the same level as a Mother Goose tale and other stories for young children to dream on at bedtime.
Regardless of these commonly held opinions, it doesn’t change what has occurred closer to home. In North America, Native American history and legends have contained information on giants for hundreds of years, some of which are clearly recorded in ancient cave paintings or masks and totem figures.

Many Native American tribes have names for these subjects. A few examples in the English translation are: “The Stone Giants” are used by the Cherokee and Iroquois people. The Lakota term is “Big Elder Brother” and the Taos call them “Big Person. The list of names is very extensive and other than a limited few terms like “Demon”, “Devil” or “Cannibal Giants”, none lists or compares these subjects to an animal.

A close study of American news accounts also reveal numerous stories of humanoid giants being seen. It starts along the east coast in the 1700’s then moves with the westward push into the 18 and 1900’s. In Daniel Boone’s memoirs, he wrote of shooting a ten foot “Yahoo” in 1782. It was located in Kentucky somewhere along what is now the Montgomery-Powell County line. In another account, Teddy Roosevelt, our 26th president, wrote a book in the late 1800’s, titled “Wilderness Hunter”. It has one chapter about two young hunters/trappers encountering a large hairy giant in what was then the remote Montana territory. They entered it in a remote valley that was shunned by the local Indian population as being an evil dangerous place.

Here in America, there are presently dozens of organized groups dedicated to investigating and documenting reports of giants. It is information coming from everyday people seeing or hearing something very unusual in the wooded areas of America. An appreciable number of these witnesses are respected folks like doctors, nurses, active military, police and firemen, all having no reason to lie or receive any personal gain for telling their story. Some would have been better off never telling their story for the rejection and ridicule they received. All for doing nothing more than telling the complete truth of what happened to them. It is an ignorantly cast prejudice that has stifled numerous personal accounts, some of which may be never told to another!

The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (B.F.R.O.) was formed in 1995. Since that time, they have investigated and published over 4600 credible and verified witness accounts believed to be directly associated with the Bigfoot/Sasquatch phenomenon. Most of them occurring right here in North America! The total number of submitted reports is actually much higher than this published figure, but if a reasonable level of certainty cannot be verified or established, it is not listed on their internet website.

Like most other folks, I never gave this phenomenon much serious consideration. As a young adolescent back in the mid 1960’s, I was intrigued by the first release of the Patterson-Gimlin film on the local news channel. I spent a short time pondering all the possibilities, but it was quickly gone, soon replaced by other youthful adventures and interests.

I was raised up along the west coast, hunting, fishing, camping and hiking in areas of reported Bigfoot activity. Not once do I ever recall hearing or seeing anything close to making me believe this elusive giant could really exist. It was years later after several decades of mature adult life and moving to the southwest U.S., that I had my first “What in the world was that!?” moment.
My son and I were night fishing along a remote, heavily wooded creek bank in North Texas. We parked there shortly before sundown and had fished well past midnight by the light of the Coleman lantern placed on my pickup’s tailgate behind us.

At some point, I became aware of subtle movements in the brush north of us. A swish of a branch here, a crackle of leaves there, I first noticed it about 100-150 yards away and it seemed to be slowly getting closer to us. There was a side slough running perpendicular into the creek beside us. It was about 20 feet wide and separated us from the thick brush where the noises were coming from.
I wasn’t at all concerned since many night animals such as armadillo, raccoon, coyotes etc., often forage through the night and are no serious threat. It was then I felt the very distinct feeling of being watched and then a loud close snap of a fairly large twig being stepped on. Not something any light four legged animal would do.

My level of alertness perked up several notches and I began to discreetly scan our entire perimeter, not wanting to concern my then 15 year old son. Nothing was there, so I then focused on the thick brush line. I got up and strolled over to the truck cab retrieving a bright spotlight and began to scan that direction.

I can’t precisely relate what I momentarily saw flash by the roving circle of light, but looked like a man’s face recessed back in the brush. It was there one split second and gone the next. I jerked the light back to the spot, but then saw nothing. Noticing my sudden movement out of the corner of his eye, my son asked “What are you doing Dad?”?

“Oh nothing….just looking” I replied, not wanting to sound a bit concerned to him, but was now not at total peace with this subtle activity.

I put the light up and sat back down and continued fishing. Not more than 10 minutes, not less than 5, a huge cinder block sized object came hurtling out of the brush line, crashing into the water less than 10 feet from us. It produced a splash about like a 50 pound child doing a cannon ball off the high dive. We both instinctively fell back in our folding chairs away from the splash as huge drops of water rained down on us.

“WHAT WAS THAT!?...WHAT WAS THAT!?” my son screamed out lunging to me and tightly clutching my side as his terrified eyes wildly darted about.

I pulled him back from the water watching to large waves fan out. I was completely bewildered at the unexpected chain of events. What I did know was that whatever hit the water was large and didn’t float. I also knew if it had hit either one of us, it would have inflicted at the very least, serious bodily injury-probably more. Feeling quite threatened, I raced over to the truck and grabbed my 357 revolver loaded with hot personal defense rounds.

“THAT’S NOT FUNNY!” I yelled out. “I HAVE A GUN AND MAY DECIDE TO USE IT IF YOU THROW SOMETHING LIKE THAT AGAIN!”

I have got in a couple more reports over the last few days. The ones I'll share today are not really complete but still worth sharing in my opinion. One is an older report, which you know I like because it shows a history of sightings in certain areas and the other is newer encounter that happened in Kentucky.

Here is the older one, I think it was from a person named Joann.

 Joann said:
"My mother lived in Calhoun county, Mississippi, she told me, her uncle lived in a rural area in the southern part of Calhoun county in the 1940’s.
Just a 1/8 of a mile down Moreland road, where he lived was a creek that ran into a very swampy area, he told her at night you could hear something hollering and some folks had seen a tall hairy creature at the back side of a field by the swamp.
My mother told me it was called “ FUZZY FOOT !


Here is a map of the area.
south end of Calhoun County, MS

 Now here is the second report. It comes from Joshua.

Joshua said:
 "I was riding four wheelers with 4 other people, so 5 total, south of Berea Kentucky, a place that people go to, to ride four wheelers and off road vehicles called buffalo.  I will say before tonight, I didn't believe in Bigfoot or primates roaming around in the woods and no person coming across them or game and wild life but tonight has changed that......  
We road to a spot called look out mountain and from this spot you can see Richmond and Berea, on the way out we stopped to talk on the quads, turned them off and things were fine......  All of a sudden crickets stopped chirping and it became so so silent.  Our friend noticed the silence, at this moment a log was thrown and we were scared at this moment, but 15 seconds later a huge lime stone slab was thrown from the hill side toward us with massive force.  Its 4 am and I can't sleep thinking about this.  ......  I am baffled right now, in shock.  Thank you for reading, Joshua ******" (Name on file)

Here is a map of the area



I have attempted contact with both of people who submitted these reports. The second report, the one that comes form Berea, KY, is really recent. I have got several other reports from the Berea area over the last couple of years. If contact is made with Joshua and more details are gathered, I will update this post or make a new one.
 
Thanks to Joshua and Joann for sending in these reports.

If you have a sighting to report then please use the form found HERE . It can be use for Bigfoot, UFOs, ghost or anything unusual.

Thanks

I got this report in overnight of possible Bigfoot activity. I'm only posted it up for 2 reasons, (1) it's an effort to contact the person who filed it. I replied to their email address and it cam back to me as not working. (2) The reaction of the dog is very much like what happened to me and my dad many years ago. At the time of my event like this, I was not thinking about Bigfoot. I was in my teens.

Here is the report, if the person who filed it would contact me, it would be great.

-Start Report-

Name: DANNY ****** (Name on File)
Email Address: on File but does not work
State: Kentucky
County: Pike 
Date of Sighting: SEPT. 21  2014
Time of Day: 9:30 PM
Nearest Town: MORROWBONE KY
Length of Sighting: no visual
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail: 
Just got in from coon hunting close to my home, with a buddy of mine.
I am going to try to relate this evenings events to everyone. We turned
our dogs loose, all but one, we had four females, all of them older dogs
none less than 4 yrs old.These hounds are what we call finished dogs,meaning
plenty experience. The three shot through the country quickly. So after a
bit we drove in their direction. We stopped at a location where he (my friend)
has a feeder, we were gonna turn his other female loose there and if possible
strike a coon track. We get out, he gets her and we walk over to the edge of
the timber, she gristles up, he cuts her loose and she heads straight for the
truck and trys to jump in the back but the tailgate is up so she crawls under
the truck, visibly shaking. He and I both can't believe what she is doing because
you turn her loose, she gets gone with one thing on her mind, find a raccoon.
He mumbled a little and leashed her led her back over, this time we walked her
to the feeder, I could not believe what I was seeing, he turned her loose and she
about knocked him down, staying up against him. There on that flat for about
70 feet were good size trees and limbs from 12 to 20 feet long turned up side
down and leaned and wedged in the forks of standing trees. All in front of the
feeder for about 70 feet then at the end of the bench was a tee pee structure I
got this feeling of dread and fear. The dog took off again towards the truck this
is a dog I've seen fight coon, run a bear, she is not scare of a cat, all the
while we didn't hear anything or smell anything but we head back.

I also notice 2 pine trees about 18 in diameter pushed till the roots were exposed
no wind or snow done this, this is sure strength and force, there are tree snaps
abundant there, about the 8-9 foot range. We get to the truck the dog is lying
under the truck again. We are both starting to feel a little tense now, we load her
up start to get in the truck when swoosh pow a tree falls, pushed or something
about 50 yards back where we just were. No phone to get pics tonight but debating
whether to go back during day light to get pics but I don't know whatever doesn't
want us there, Before I forget the feeder is a tire nailed to a tree it was filled
with rocks instead of feed, it was all gone and replaced with rocks.
Would like some help and feedback.

-End Report-
 
 
Thanks for the report. This is very similar to an event me and my dad had while coon hunting. I was only a teenager at the time but it has stuck with me all these years. It was amazing how frightened our dogs were at that time. I have never fully told all that happened that night but I hope to as some point. At the time I didn't even think about it being a Bigfoot but figured it out years later.

So this report stood out to me because of the reaction the dog had and the fact that I had a similar experience. So when I see and hear people talk about how dogs act around Bigfoot and they act like dogs are cool with Bigfoot being around, it really makes me wonder because that is not the reaction I have had and seen.

Any ways, if Danny is reading this, your email address did not work for me. I would recommend that you go back in the day time and take a lot of pictures and also look for tracks. Please contact me with any more info or photos at thecryptocrew@kih.net.

Thanks

Bigfoot in creek

The Bigfoot That Wasn't There

A few years ago, I would get out and remove junk from some of our local waterways. It's amazing what people throw away and even more amazing what they throw in our streams. I have found everything from microwaves to bicycles. I enjoyed the time out doors and the feeling of cleaning up our streams. Over my years growing up I had spent many hours swimming in these creeks and as I got older many hours fishing in them. I would also sell this junk to the local recycling center, the extra money came in handy. In one week alone I removed over 1,500 pounds of junk from one local creek.  

Of course, while out collecting junk, it also gave me a chance to scan the creek banks for signs of Bigfoot. On a couple occasions I did have some odd things happen. I want to take this time to tell you about one of them.

I normally looked for this junk by myself, I would park my truck close to the creek and walk up and down the stream looking for this junk and then pack it back to the truck. Sometime, I would walk a mile or more away from the truck. Some of these area were pretty isolated with no houses close by but plenty of forest.

One day while out looking for junk, I was about a half of a mile from my truck, when all of a sudden there was a large splash in the water. It was a splash like someone or something had threw a rock in the water. This splash occurred a pretty good ways up ahead of me. As I kept on moving slowing up stream looking for junk, SPLASH! Another splash in the water. On my right side there was nothing but mountains and there is a history of Bigfoot sightings in this area. So at this point I'm thinking, "Hey, this could be a Bigfoot throwing rocks at me."

I keep moving slowing up stream looking for junk and glancing at the treeline to see if I can spot anything or anyone that could be throwing rocks into the water. In the back of my mind I was thinking it could be a person just messing with me but the possibilities of it being a Bigfoot was right there as well.

Then I hear something hit the rocks on the shoreline, it was like whatever this was had not hit the water this time. I keep easing up stream and then Splash! right next to me.

It was at this point I realized what was making these splashes, it was not a person, it was not a Bigfoot. It was a tree loaded with nuts and the nuts were periodically falling off the tree and sometimes into the water making the splash. So I had a bit of a chuckle and continued to look for junk. To be honest I was a little disappointed that it wasn't a Bigfoot.

I posted this, and it is a true story, to illustrate that it's sometime easy to get caught up in the moment and think something is being done by Bigfoot, when in reality it was something natural. Now, what if I had left after the second or third splash, all the while thinking it was a Bigfoot throwing rocks at me.  I'm glad I've been at this long enough to know I needed to continue on and look for the source of the splashes.

I have also seen and heard nuts falling off of trees produce a wood knock sound, which I would assume, has fooled many people.

So in the end, even though strange things may be happening, it is better to keep your wits about yourself and look for a explanation or source for the odd event. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm in no way suggesting that Bigfoot does not throw rocks, but sometimes we tend jump to the conclusion of Bigfoot, when in fact it may not be.

Thanks

Amazing Camouflaged Bigfoot! Possible Or Not?
The Cuttlefish Weighs In
By Dorraine Fisher


Just about anything is possible.  But don’t take my word for it. All you have to do is take a good look at nature and wildlife and you’ll find all kinds of things that defy logic every day and make us rethink what might be possible.  That is if your mind is open and if you’re paying attention.
I’ve been criticized plenty for talking about the strange feats some people attribute to Bigfoot. But I don’t care and here’s why.

Rather than debating what’s not possible, I like to deal in possibilities. When someone starts talking about the weirdness of Bigfoot, my first reaction is not to dismiss the idea. My first reaction is to ask myself if what they’re describing is even really possible. And if you study nature and wildlife enough, they prove themselves to be truly astounding over and over again. So why would I think things are different with a creature that is not yet fully known to science. Should I believe they’re any less astounding?  Do Sasquatches have the ability to camouflage themselves better than other animals?

 I think it’s very possible they may have some almost unbelievable hiding capabilities. I mean, we can’t find them. Right?

So, let’s look at this another way. Let’s look at the question from the perspective of the science of animals with some amazing capabilities that are already known to exist.   Does such an amazing camouflage exist in the animal world? And the answer is yes. It’s filmed and documented by science, and it’s more mind blowing than you would expect.

An ocean-dwelling member of the slug family, the cuttlefish, can not only change its color, but its texture and shape to blend in with its surroundings.  And it does it amazingly well, making it an ace predator of the ocean.  And science is still trying to figure out exactly how it’s able to do this.  More study is needed, and it’s still open to interpretation.

Things that make you go, “Hmmm.”

I’m not saying Sasquatches can morph themselves to look like a tree stump.  But many observers will tell you it can seem that way at times.  And when it comes to survival, all living creatures have adapted some amazing traits.  Some more amazing than others.

But if you want to know if something’s possible, look at them and suddenly nothing seems impossible. Nature is amazing and mysterious.  Check out this video about the cuttlefish and see what you think. And see what you think might be possible in the rest of the animal kingdom.   ********DF

Bigfoot cloaking on video
What is this figure? Must watch the video!

Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


This is a very short clip from a video taken by Barb Shupe. When she first posted it and I seen the "figure", I thought it was just some flickering sunlight. After I watched it full screen I realized there is for sure something moving and not sunlight. The figure appears to be in a tree or possibly just standing behind a small tree and then drops down and runs off. The figure is odd looking and some think it could actually be a Bigfoot cloaking.  To me the figure almost looks like an alien. I would also like to thank Barb for allowing me to attempt to enhance the video and a thank her for sharing it. ...so Thanks Barb!

I'm not sure what it is but I have enhanced the clip, what do you think it is?


If you would like to see the complete original video by Barb Shupe - here is the link

Are You Tired Of Bigfoot Not Being Taken Seriously?
Bigfoot Activist Mark Zaskey Says It’s Time For That To Change
By Dorraine Fisher

Are you tired of being ridiculed as a Bigfoot eye witness and researcher?  Are you tired of your sighting being treated like the delusion of a crazy person by skeptics and the scientific community?  Bigfoot eye witness, researcher, and activist, Mark Zaskey says Bigfoot is real. We all know it. And it’s time for all that to change now.

One of hardest things Bigfoot researchers deal with every day is ridicule.  Ridicule from law enforcement, ridicule from scientists, ridicule from skeptics, and from a general public that has been programmed to believe that Bigfoot is a joke; basically nothing more than an object of modern marketing hype like Jack Links.
 
But the number of credible eye witnesses is piling up high enough to break the ceiling now.  And according to Mark, an ever-growing number of those eye witnesses are scientists. So why does the validation of bigfoot seem so often too far away to even hope for? When do the public and the scientific community finally start to believe that thousands of sightings reports are valid and describing a real creature and not a mythical one?

Mark thinks it’s time for researchers to unite and take a stand for Bigfoot and Bigfoot researchers, and is staunchly committed to the process.  He, along with a couple scientists, so far, and around 50 fellow eye witnesses are actually working together to form a foundation to make that happen.  And they need your help.  Because Mark, after his own Bigfoot sighting in 2013 and his son’s in 2012, decided that what he saw was real, and was eerily human-looking.  And this has affected his life profoundly, (like so many others) and should be taken seriously, and not ridiculed.  He believes scientists in Bigfoot research and other Bigfoot researchers have been kept down by a skeptical scientific community that has refused to acknowledge thousands of credible witnesses whose lives have been forever changed by what they saw. And he wants to know why. A huge number of these people have been driven to become researchers and find answers on their own while the scientific community and skeptics malign and ridicule them rather than embracing the piles of evidence researchers work so hard to obtain.

“I know what I saw,” Mark explained. “ I know what a bear looks like, and this was not a bear. It was nothing like a bear.  But researchers are blocked from acting on their beliefs about this. WE must begin to examine ourselves and this problem. This is a most important thing to history EVER!” 
Every time the subject is brought up in the scientific community, or that, heaven forbid, they might be a type of human, it’s quickly squelched and swept under the rug as if it has no significance to science at all.  The question is why.

When Bigfoot just might be one of the most significant revelations of the 21st century, why is the subject being blocked at every turn? With so much evidence on the table, why are the top scientific authorities in the world still denying the creature’s existence?

“There’s an ever-growing number of scientists who’ve seen them with their own eyes and know they’re real,” Mark said.  “And if they can come together along with numerous eye witnesses and demand to be taken seriously and demand that mainstream science take this seriously, I think we can make a difference and open up a new conversation about them and get them the protection they need.
Mark’s movement is gaining steam, but the foundation still can use all the help it can get. “ We need more scientists that are willing to stand together and we need as many eye witness researchers as possible who aren’t afraid to stand up for what they know to be true.”

They’re out there. They’re real. We all know it.  Now let’s do something about it.
Mark is working on a new website for the foundation that will be up very soon. I’ll publish new information as I get it. But in the meantime, check out this video from Bigfoot Researchers United to find out what it’s all about, and get involved. I’ve included Mark’s contact information below.  **********DF

Accidental Bigfoot
Bigfoot Accidentally caught on video?


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


There has been a video burning up the Bigfoot arena taken by Biff Burk. It would appear, according to the report, that Biff accidentally filmed a Bigfoot. There has been some controversy about the video and when I first saw it I thought it was just a stump, but stumps don't move. I do not know Biff and can not comment about him or his research. This video does have many red flags for me.

So I have taken a very short part of the video and attempted to enhance it. I have adjusted the orientation of the video and use various effects on it. So what do you think? could it be a Bigfoot?
Watch the video and let me know what ya think.

I got in a unreported until now Bigfoot encounter. Even though this encounter is a second hand account, I feel there are some interesting elements involved. I have also noticed that it seems the white/grey Bigfoot are more aggressive. This report makes several that I know of where the white Bigfoot was more aggressive.  I have chanced the name of the person who reported this encounter,per their request. Their real name and email address will be on file.

Aggressive Bigfoot Encounter

- Start Report -

Name: Matt Bolder
Email Address: Withheld
State: Oklahoma
County: Blaine
Date of Sighting: 1988 / 1989?
Time of Day: late evening
Nearest Town: Watonga
Length of Sighting: as was told to me by brother, about 20 minutes or so.
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:
This encounter was told to me by one of my brother's about 12 or so years ago.  He had said that he waited to tell me because he didn't think that I would believe him.  And hadn't told anyone else but our dad and a close friend of this encounter because he didn't really want everyone thinking that he was a nut or crazy.

So, I will try and recall what my brother had told me about what had happen since having him retell this incident to me dozens of times, because this close encounter scared the liv'n s@$% out of him and his friend that evening.

So, as was told to me, my brother and his buddy both worked together at a state park and after work they were both going to pick up some beer and discuss some of his buddy's girl-friend problems at one of the local party hang-outs west of town a few miles out down near a sandy river bottom area.  It's typically quiet and peaceful when there's no party's down there he said.  So, they get there in his buddy's white truck and park with the ass-end of the truck back about 50 or so yards from North Canadian River.

So, the front of their truck was facing east/northeast my brother said.  There was an open tall natural grass field in front of them with tree-breaks near farmers fence lines in front of them.  No sooner than after about 10-12 minutes in getting there my brother said and was about to pop open a beer, he saw something about 200-220 yards to the east/southeast running south toward the river bank tree line in front of them--my brother said he saw it first and told his buddy to take a look, and neither of them couldn't quite figure out what it was?

My brother thought initially that it was a horse since it was kinda of white/gray in color, and it had a fast running pace but smooth in it's stride.  He couldn't see anything but from about the shoulders up since the natural grass fields where extremely high during late July/August down on the river bottom areas.  He said he saw this thing run over a good quarter mile stretch and cover the ground very fast until it disappeared in the river bank tree line down about 1/4 miles south of their truck, which was the side my brother was sitting since he was riding shot-gun.

That evening my brother said was unusually quiet with very little wind howling, so they both could hear very well with both of the windows down on the truck while sitting still in the truck.  My brother states that once this thing disappeared into the tree line near the river, they both could hear the breaking of branches and tree limbs snapping, getting louder and louder, as if whatever it was, was getting closer and closer to them follow the river bank within the tree line.

My brother's buddy started to really get scared and wanted to leave, but my brother told him to sit still and just see what the hell this was?  So, his buddy reluctantly remained quiet with them both turned looking over their right shoulders staring into the tree line.  As the sounds began to get louder, all of the sudden, they stopped.  They both were looking but no visualization of anything.

So they both turned looking forward talking about what the hell they think it might have been, when my brother saw something in the right truck side mirror step out in the open behind them on the sandy river bank.  By this time, the sun had gone down but the moon was completely full that night--he said it was one of those nights that you didn't need a flash light--you could see everything fairly well, the moon was so bright.

At this time, my brother heard his buddy pulling out his 44 magnum from under his truck seat, and my brother said to let him have the gun since he didn't want his buddy accidentally shooting him. So, my brother took the 44 mag pistol and stuck his upper body out of his side of the truck looking back (toward the West).  He said that there was no sounds or smells, everything was quiet.  This thing was just gently swaying back and forth, no sounds, no noises, just swaying back and forth staring at toward the truck.

My brother said that he notices details that made him realize that this wasn't some guy suited-up in a gorilla suit...he said that the arms were extremely long with the hands hanging down near the knees, the head had a cone-shape, there was no neck, just a massive head down to very massive broad shoulders--my brother said that this things was one big S.O.B.!...and he could tell that it was covered in hair because the hair was glistening from the moonlight.  My brother estimates that this creature/being was at least 7-8ft in height since my brother was hanging out of the truck, he could tell that this thing was much taller, even at a 50-60 yrd distance.

About 20-30 seconds went by with everyone staring at each other. My brother's buddy was extremely scared and wanted to immediately leave, but again, my brother told him to just wait a second.  Then, this thing began to advance very quickly toward their truck, my brother told his buddy to get the damn truck started and get the hell out of there now!  He said that his buddy got the truck started and as soon as they began to drive forward, my brother was still looking back pointing his 44 mag pistol at this thing yelling that he'll shoot if he gets any closer--he didn't because he said in the back of his head, he thought that this still might be some guy, but as this things got almost upon them, the red tail lights of the truck reflected off the face and hands of this big SOB and my brother could make out a definite brow ridge above the eyes, very dark eyes, and a huge hand reaching out toward the tail gate of the truck while in a fast stride chasing their truck.

My brother's buddy fish-tailed the truck while speeding down the dirt road almost wrecking the damn truck my brother said--he noticed that his buddy was in a bit of scared-shock.  My brother told his buddy to slow the damn truck down, but his buddy was in shock and kept the truck going until they reached the highway, which was about 1.0-3/4 miles down the dirt. So, my brother calmed him down and indicated that he wanted to go back and find out what the hell that thing was, and his buddy said, "no F@#$n' way!!! And to this day, after this encounter, my brother did go back with another buddy to look for tracks, but his buddy that was with him that night has never been back due to fear.

I know this event has changed my brother's outlook on what's in the woods.  He remains and avid outdoorsman, and we know what various wildlife looks like, up close and at a distance.  But my brother said, that this creature was the biggest damn thing that he's ever seen up close on two legs!

To this day, he will talk about that encounter, but only to those he trust won't ridicule him--in knowing my brother, he isn't kidding or joking around with this incident.  I know he saw what he saw and I believe him 100%.  Our dad is still on the fence with this incident because he's never seen anything like this, but my brother until the day he dies will state that he feels actually privileged in seeing this 'thing' because he feels that not many people get to see something or experience anything like this in their lifetime.

So, he hasn't shared this encounter with many people and because of our occupations and positions, we would rather not be mentioned by our names in any articles, but you can share this incident with others--because we don't believe others would truly believe that these creatures exist, but they do--even in areas where you wouldn't even think they should.  There are very little trees and no mountains in this area of this encounter my brother had, but there is lots of Indian reservation lands surrounding the areas that we have heard lots of sightings have occurred.
Thank you for you time in allowing my to re-tell my brother's creature encounter.

Bigfoot Spotted around Chotard Lake

Another Bigfoot Report From Mississippi

Recently it seems Mississippi has become a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings. I recently done some video work for Brian Sons of Onyx Knights Paranormal Cryptids group, on a video that he recorded of some possible bigfoot in Mississippi and on some sounds recording from the same area. (Video Here).

 Just a few days ago video News report surfaced about a possible Bigfoot visiting an old school play ground in Mississippi. This news report also showed a track casting made by one of the locals.

All these reports coming from Mississippi is helping others come forward with their sighting. A couple days ago I was contacted by Don, who wanted to finally tell of his sighting from many years ago. 

What follow is Don's sighting.

- Start Report - 

Don said - 
"I was watching a local news program here in Madison, Ms. & they mentioned someone had an experience with the Bigfoot.  So, I told my wife I would contact someone & tell
them what I saw, which I had never done.

Back in the 1960’s & 70’s I bass fished all the Ms. river lakes. One morning I was fishing to northwest end on Lake Chotard, & heard a muffled crash back in the willows.  I looked up
immediately & saw this large black or dark creature,  much taller than a grown man,  hurrying away from me with his head turned looking at me.  This has been a long time ago & I never told
anyone what I saw until much later.  What I saw is firmly indelible in my head. I never did go back to Chotard, as much as I liked to fish there.


Now, this has been quite a few years ago, but I’ve told you just about everything,   But I will try to add to some of the questions you’ve asked me. (Tom - I had emailed and ask some questions about the creature).

This sighting was, the best of my memory, was about mid morning morning on  calm, early summer morning, no wind & I was fishing  alone, as I commonly did.  I hunt & fish a lot so I
have a pretty good idea the size of things in the woods, I wood say the thing was 7’ tall or more, it was about 80 to 100 yds. from me.  There was no smell other the the smell of willows blooming in the swamp. But one thing that stood out, it had a big head. 

It must have stepped on a limb that snapped causing me to look up, but that was the only sound it made (It’s pretty wet back in the swamp).
This sighting date is not going to be very accurate, but I would guess it was in the 60’s right after I got out of the army."

- End Report -

Thanks for the report Don and thanks for coming forward and telling what you saw.

I have included a general map of the area at the top of the page.

According to theses reports, It appears Bigfoot has been calling Mississippi home for a long time now. This sighting may be many years old, but it is still important in showing a history of sightings in this area.

I encourage others to come forward and report your sightings, it does not matter if it happen years ago. It still needs to be documented. There is a link at the top of the page to report sightings.

Thanks

Tree knocks and stick structures... Bigfoot or not?
By Jason Morse


  Many researchers frequently go out into the woods looking for various evidence of the possibility of a Bigfoot being nearby, or for one that's passed through the area. Lately, some of the common pieces of “evidence” presented are stick structures and audio or video depicting what sounds like a tree being struck by a limb or other piece of a tree.
I want to touch on a couple things that could open the serious researcher's mind.

  I was speaking to a good friend and great researcher, Bruce Barraclough, founder of NEAR (North Eastern Anomalous Research) and he made mention of a few very interesting things. The following will touch on these topics.

  Let's start with the tree knocking....

  I will now pose a question to all the researchers out there. How many of you have been walking through the woods and decide to attempt to elicit a response from a possible Bigfoot by grabbing a stick from the ground and whacking a nearby tree? Most of have at one point or another, I know I have. Now, my point.... When one finds a  limb, stick, etc on the ground, it's usually due to wind breaking a branch, deteriorating of the tree, causing it to break off and fall, and each time I've found one and decided to try a tree knock, I've got one, perhaps two good knocks before the item that I'm using is reduced to toothpicks. Now, I'm not a really small guy, I've been in concrete construction for 20+ years, am over 6 feet tall, and have a relatively decent amount of strength, and I get one , or if I've found a more sturdy stick, two good knocks from it. Now put that same branch, limb, or portion of tree into the hands of a creature that's  over 7 feet tall, weighing 400+ lbs with three or more times the strength of a normal man. I don't think I need to explain what happens. I've talked to other researchers that have decided that picking up a stick and smacking a tree is pointless, because it can only provide a couple knocks, so they go out armed with the handle of an axe or sledgehammer. So how can a creature the size of a Sasquatch accomplish numerous knocks with rotted wood? Simple. Both Bruce and myself have talked about this, and we're in complete agreement that if anything, the knocks are being accomplished by using a rock against a tree or other rock. Rock “clacking” has been reported many times, and I'm tempted to believe that a stone is the only implement that could be used to accomplish this. NOW, next time Bill D. Researcher goes out into the woods, go ahead and find a fallen stick and give it a try, then use a rock. The sound is different, and the rock against a tree causes the sound to travel further, and rock against rock emits a sound that can be heard even further away.

  In the fall and spring, when the mornings are brisk, and the afternoon warms up, the fibers in the tree expand and contract, often causing “snapping” noises, and it's my thought that this is often (not necessarily always) misidentified as a tree knock. Furthermore, in certain areas, finding an adequate sized rock in dense woods isn't the easiest thing to locate.

  So there's some food for thought about tree knocks. Now let's talk about stick structures and tree twists.

  I was contacted by a novice researcher a while back, saying he'd located an amazing stick structure, and I had to check it out, so I met him at the location about an hour's drive from my home, we then trekked out about 2 hours into the woods off trail at a nearby state park. We crested a knoll, and there it was, the mother of all stick structures. Intricately crafted, it had a large horizontal support with smaller branches leaning at a 45 degree angle from the larger tree trunk to the ground, and even smaller branches were weaved in and out of those. I was exited, thinking that there had to be some kind of evidence inside this thing, such as hair, prey remains, etc. So I wasted no time carefully poking my head inside, and looked around inside the 3 foot wide by 7 foot long by 3 foot tall structure, only to be disappointed to find the remains of a small fireplace. Hiker, hardcore camper, or survivalist. Darn. After touching on this subject with Bruce, I started talking with folks from varied walks of life.

  I grew up in Downeast Maine, about 30 miles northeast of Bar Harbor, and most of my friends, family, and others that lived in the area were avid hunters, so I spoke to some of them about this.

  The most interesting guy I talked to, I'll call him Jack, said that he used to go out hunting for a couple days at a time frequently, and at night, he'd often make a rudimentary shelter if the weather got bad, or just to take a nap in. When I mentioned tree twists, he said that he would be walking through the woods, and he'd grab a small limb and give it a  twist and break it in the direction he came from. (He was leaving markers to easily find his way home) He had picked up this technique from his father who'd been shown it by his father. There's 3 generations of tree twists and stick structures in one family in one small area. When multiplied by other old school hunters, trappers, fisherman, campers, or avid outdoors-men, that adds up to a lot of structures and twists.

  Then I talked to a local hunter who's son was in the Boy Scouts of America....

  His son had just received a  badge in camping and survival. He was accompanied by the troop and troop leader on an overnight trek. The troop was instructed to make a shelter to stay out of the wind and weather, then to find his way out. That old hunter''s trick must have proved to be very useful, the troop would break off small branches to show the route they took, and markers were fashioned to show the way back as well.

  Hmm, hunters, outdoors-men, now Boy Scouts... Wait, I'm not done yet.

  I have an acquaintance that has had a difficult time with his life. He's been homeless for reasons that aren't important in this topic. What is important is that he said he'd go to the public library and read about old military tricks to survive in the wild. Yup, you guessed it, branch breaks to find his way, and learned to make structures out of branches, old tarps, whatever was available.

  In closing, the mind HAS to be open to all possibilities when doing Bigfoot research, look at all angles. What could this or that have been, what could have built this or that, and what was that noise coming from?  These should be the first things thought about when you find a couple trees leaning against each other. I'm not in the least saying that a Bigfoot wouldn't do any of these things, one very well might, however, EVERY broken branch, leaning tree, and structure don't mean it's necessarily a Sasquatch.

  Very special thanks to Bruce Barraclough from NEAR for getting me thinking about this, and giving me some info about it. Be safe and smart in the woods, folks. The truth IS out there!
