 Is it always Bigfoot?  

I think most are starting to realize that the term " Bigfoot "  doesn't necessarily mean what many used to think it did.

Years ago when, I first started looking in to this subject after a life changing encounter of my own, Bigfoot for the most part was looked at as some kind of North American Gorilla.
There were of course those Crazy " Bigfoot are aliens bunch " and a few other groups of people that were considered fringe researchers but to really be accepted you pretty much had to go Gorilla or Giganto. Anything other than that and you were dismissed and called crazy.
I knew that what I had seen in 1997 looked much more man than ape but at the same time was not modern man. It would be 10 years later before I would see anything that resembled an ape.
It is fully understandable that when we see something that is large and covered in hair that our brain will try and fit it in to a category that we recognize and for most that would be Ape.
As time went on I think some people started to realize that if we were just dealing with a highly intelligent and elusive ape then we would have had one or even many to study by now. 
The argument there is that they (The government) do know and have studied them but keep it quiet because it would destroy the lumber industry.  
The lumber industry died in many places a long time ago so why else would they need to keep these North American Gorillas quiet? I highly doubt they would.
They would however, need to keep something that is far more advanced than us quiet for several reasons. Mass panic,  having to change everything that we learned in school, history, evolution and so on.
If you take a look at indigenous history there are references to many things that dwell in the forest. Some good, some bad, some flesh and blood and some completely spiritual and yes even some that are claimed to come from the sky.
I think the days of trying to fit Bigfoot in to one single category have long passed and so have the days of dismissing everything that doesn't fit in to the idea of " Just an animal".
This doesn't mean people are going to start doing that because we all hate to be wrong and I've actually had people tell me that thinking about the possibility of multiple species is too complicated and that we need to figure out what " They" are first. How can you do that if you dismiss everything but your own opinion? I'm sorry but you cant.
There are things out there that you absolutely do not want to mess around with.
I agree with many who say Bigfoot are like us in that they all have different personalities but is that all? I don't think so. Actually I know that's not all but I have no way to prove it.
I know that some things that have happened to myself and many others were not caused by any gorilla nor were they caused by the same Bigfoot that I had been peacefully gifting back and forth with for years. Of course they differ in looks, most would agree on that these days I would think.
I also think that more and more people are starting to agree that behavior could differ amongst various tribes. What is considered acceptable to one may not be acceptable to another.
The question though is how do we know when something disturbing or frightening happens to people that it was Bigfoot that caused it?  A lot of the time we don't.
We assume because it happened in the woods, maybe even while we were in an area that we use for Bigfoot research, that any activity that can't be explained must be Bigfoot, but take Windigo for example. Windigo are often listed as an aboriginal name for Bigfoot but when you actually look in to it the only thing they have in common is that they dwell in the forest.
I know what I have experienced myself and at times with other people are the complete opposite of what usually happens in the woods doing research and has been very negative. So my question to you that read this, is Are we simply dealing with different temperaments of Bigfoot, multiple species, or multiple beings that have nothing more in common than being forest dwellers?

  1. If you're going to pursue this subject, I believe these questions are necessary for all of us. We want to categorize every experience as "bigfoot." The Sasquatch people are getting a bad rap in the process. There's so much we don't know and tend to assume. We need to have an open mind and be objective in the process. There is much to learn.

  2. I think there are different temperments in the Bigfoot, but I also think there are different species...What about Dogmen? Are they real?

    Interesting thoughts. Thought provoking article. Causes one to think... especially those of us caught up on trying to define specific types and give then certain names. I like to think that North American Apes (Napes) seems to cover the hairy hominin varieties very well. Personally I've not been able to separate Wendigo from that of a Algonquin/Iroquois Eastern Woodlands Spirit Being yet. While my Abenaki/Wabanaki friends have made several distinctions between between Forest Giants. I'd like to think we're dealing with a single species when it comes to Bigfoot/Forest Giants but it stands to reason there are other things out there that go bump in the night supported by credible witnesses, and reported/recorded history, and folklore. My experience leads me to believe at this time that Bigfoot/Forest Giants vary much in the way canine breeds vary. And, and it's a big AND, when you try to squeeze these creatures into a study of science Quantum Physics and Ufology stand out. In all honesty I prefer to stay at the edge of the Rabbit Hole where I can still see the Sunlight. Leo, I love talking to you, and reading what you are thinking. I never come away without learning something from your interesting thought provoking queries.
