Bigfoot Track Found and Cast


On July the 18th I was out filming for season 2 of  my video series, Almost Live. While I don't want to give too much of it away I can share with you the fact that I found a very nice juvenile Bigfoot track. If you are unfamiliar with my Almost Live series it is kind of like "Survivor man" but with more focus on nature, Bigfoot, adventure and wild life. The original season one series was really only meant for Youtube, but a friend who liked the show suggested I load it to Amazon Prime and I did.

The places I research are very remote, and I can't "Go Live!" like many people can do. The places I'm in, there is no cell phone signal. So, I film and do very little editing and put out the show under the title "Almost Live". Season 2 is going to have much more production value than Season 1, as it was not intended to go to streaming services.  But for now, let me tell you a little more about this track.


I found several other tracks that day but this one here was prime for casting. The ground was very moist and it took a little longer for the track to dry. As I was digging it out of the ground I was somewhat worried that I might break it in half. I sure didn't want to do that.

Once I got the track home I let it dry real good. I let it dry naturally by just laying it on the counter. Well, I finally thought I had better clean it up and see how it looked. Cleaning a track casting can be a bit tricky. What I did was put it under some lightly running water and gently rub it with my index finger. You can also use a soft bristled tooth brush but if you are not very careful you will leave small lines in it which could make you think you have dermal ridges in the print.

Once I got the cast fairly clean, I took some pictures and measurements. This track was roughly  9 and a half inches long and 4 and a half inches wide at the ball of the foot. While not always accurate, but a good way to get a guesstimate, you can take half of the length of the foot and get the height of the creature. In this case it would be 4 and half foot tall. Normally, an individually is as tall in feet as half the foot size is in inches. For example, a 14 inch track would most likely mean the creature is 7 foot tall. Like I say, this is not 100 percent accurate and there are exception but it is a good way to get a general idea of the height.

So, this was a nice little track find and the day itself was pretty interesting. I hope to have Season 2 of Almost Live out in the fall of this year or very early next year.  In season 2  I'm much more focused on Bigfoot and tips than Season 1.I think people will be pretty happy with the stuff in Season 2, I hope you will tune in.

Thanks
