Driver took photo of Bigfoot next to fallen tree near Webb Lake, Wisconsin

Image
The Facebook Find Bigfoot guys said this photo of Bigfoot standing behind a fallen tree was taken in July. A powerful wind storm near Webb Lake Wisconsin had knocked down a tree blocking the road. When the photo was taken, the photographer did not notice what was behind the tree because it was "motionless".

FB/FB said this is one of the best pictures that has been submitted to them this summer.

Fouke Monster

The Fouke Monster, also known as the Southern Sasquatch, is a legendary cryptid reported near the town of Fouke in Miller County, Arkansas during the early 1970s, where it was accused of attacking a local family. Initial sightings of the creature were concentrated in the Jonesville/Boggy Creek area, where it was blamed for the death of local livestock. Later, sightings were made several hundred miles to the north and the east of Fouke.

Bigfoot Hunters: How to Split Wood with a Knife

If you're in the great outdoors and need to start a fire, you can use a fixed blade knife to split small logs as long as the knife blade is longer than the diameter of the log. This technique is popular in bushcraft and is known as batoning.

TheSasquatchmaster calling it quits, Finding Bigfoot finds Salt Fork footage inconclusive

The SquatchMaster's Final Video
Everyone's favorite Bigfoot hunter from Ohio calls it quits. He's going to try ghost hunting instead he says.

After months of being ridiculed for claiming that he caught a Bigfoot on video breaking some trees, Jeff finally gets noticed by a team of experts. The experts met with him a few days ago to "scientifically" analyze his famous footage from Salt Fork State park. Who are these experts?

We've been reporting for a few days now that the Finding Bigfoot TV crew is currently filming in Ohio. Apparently, it looks like they're going through the list of likely candidates to investigate. Jeff and Tim Stover is among the list of Bigfoot witnesses they're investigating.

Jeff said they put his footage through some rigorous scientific tests and the results were inconclusive. This meant  the creature in the film could either be a man or a squatch. We'll never know...

Bigfoot researcher William Jevning recalls government cover up

Image
Author of "Notes From the Field, Tracking North America's Sasquatch" William Jevning sent out a really long tweet today recalling a possible government cover up regarding Bigfoot.

He caught our attention when he posted these words on Twitter:
For those who may be interested in the subject of the Sasquatch (Bigfoot), I wanted to bring something up I was recently talking about. This man studied Bigfoot for 39 years, and has even written a book on the subject. We were all ears at this point. And for the next hour or so, we all sat quietly waiting as each of his tweets came to us in short bursts.

Snowbeast coming to DVD on October 4th

The original Snowbeast was first broadcast in 1977 in the US. The 1977 made-for-television horror film details the attacks of a ravenous white sasquatch on a Colorado ski resort. The teleplay was written by Joseph Stefano, who wrote the script for Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1960 thriller Psycho. Stefano reportedly used a book by Roger Patterson (who claimed to have encountered a bigfoot in 1967) as his primary inspiration, though no credit is given.

The Sylvanic team needs a skeptic to volunteer to see Bigfoot for themselves, but warns you might die

Todd Standing and the Sylvanic team is looking for a skeptical volunteer who is willing to risk their life to see Bigfoot for themselves. Standing claims to know exactly where these creatures are, but it's going to take some guts if you want to tag along.  Preferably, they would like to have someone from one of the major neworks like CNN or the BBC to be their skeptical journalist.

If you plan on volunteering, here's one thing you should know: It's not safe and you may not come back alive!

FANNY MILLS - The Ohio Bigfoot Lady

Image
Fanny was born in England in 1860 and immigrated to to Sandusky, Ohio shortly after her birth. From an early age, Fanny began to show signs of Milroy’s Disease. Milroy’s is essentially a Lymphedema – a gross swelling, fluid building and discoloring of the soft tissue – localized only to the lower extremities. It is most common in women, with seventy to eighty percent of all those afflicted being female, and the severity of the inherited condition varies.

US Forest Service Law Enforcement Officer encountered Bigfoot 15 years ago in Tillamook County, new video takes another look

Image
In 1996, a Law Enforcement Officer and his girlfriend had an encounter of their life. The sighting happened on an ocean beach south of Tillamook . The couple were preparing to camp out on the beach until they saw a dark figure out in the distance. At first, they thought it was a man. But as it got closer, they noticed the hair all over and they were able to make out the face. The creature didn't do anything to harm them, so they decided to stay at the location to see if they can catch it on tape.

MrMayDX08 Book Review: In the Footsteps of the Russian Snowman

Looking for a good Bigfoot book to read?

Watch MrMayDX08 review this book by Dmitri Bayanov. The title of the book is called "In the Footsteps of the Russian Snowman". It's the world's first English-language book on the searches for the elusive relict hominoid (popularly known as the snowman) in the lands of the former Soviet Union, written by Russian researchers themselves.

The information in the book is given in full detail, soberly discussed, arranged geographically and presented chronologically, from the accounts of medieval travelers to the sighting reports of the current decade. Numerous observations of relict hominoids in the wild or in captivity include a case of interbreeding with humans.

But is the snowman a reality? The book does its best to answer that very question.

MrMayDX08 gives this book 5/5 stars.

Bigfoot Stole My Baby

Image
Do you believe in Bigfoot because it's fun? In Psychology Today, an article talks about the human mind and our affinity for awesomeness. Hank Davis, the author of the piece uses the Caveman Logic and takes a look at the scary and entertaining ways in which our primitive minds are mismatched to the modern world around us. Rather than taking a skeptical approach, Davis tries to explain why we're always searching for something awesome like Bigfoot.

Some our readers will probably disagree with Davis, but it's an interesting read if you're more into the psychology stuff.

NCBDT retrieves trailcam photos from Sierra Nevada Mountain, sees no sign of Bigfoot

Image
The Northern California Bigfoot Discovery Team had been experimenting with trailcams in the Sierras since August. They setup their first trailcam on the Western slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain. The team strategically selected a spot that was based on topography, seclusion, and the type resources available.

36 days later, on September 17, the NCBDT went back to retrieve the trailcam, and while they didn’t capture any images of Bigfoot, they did manage to photograph some deer and even a bear!

Here's what they said about the Sierra Nevada mountain range and why they think it's an ideal place to find a Sasquatch:
The Pacific Northwest contains vast expanses of mountains and forestland, and the Sierra Nevada Mountain range is one such example. Extending for hundreds of miles, the alpine forests of the Sierras would theoretically provide an adequate home for the elusive Bigfoot. Having spent a considerable amount of time in the mountains, I can say that I think it would definit…

Watch SyFy's Paranormal Witness: Deputy Sheriff chased in the wilderness by Bigfoot episode

Earlier today, we posted a recap article about the Paranormal Witness show on SyFy. We believe the Bigfoot story in this episode has one of the most suspenseful wilderness chase scenes ever.

It's about an Oregon Deputy Sheriff in the woods being chased by Bigfoot. From the account, Bigfoot seemed to be more scared of the Deputy, rather than the other way around.

Sasquatch is the first coin to be issued in the Canadian cryptids 3-coin series. Here's the description:

The Finding Bigfoot show gets roasted, Cliff Barackman: "LOL!"

Check out this comedy skit by Autumn Forest. She runs a blog over at Ghost Hunting Theories. In her most recent "LAUGH Comedy Series" post, she pokes fun at the Finding Bigfoot show. Autumn said she is in love with Finding Bigfoot and it begs to be poked fun at by an adoring fan.

Cliff Barackman thought it was hilarious and wrote this on his blog:

Over at the blog Ghost Hunting Theories, paranormal investigator and friend of the 'squatch, Autumnforest, has posted a funny dialogue for a fictional episode of Finding Bigfoot.  I giggled to myself several times while reading through the post because it hit a little closer to home more than Autumnforest probably realizes.  The parody on our personalities seems a bit more accurate now that I've been on the road for nearly two months filming the second season of the show.  Read on for a sample of the script, and click the link below for the rest.

Thank you, Autumnforest, for a good laugh at my expense!

Cliff Barackman talks about the last episode of Finding Bigfoot Season 1

Cliff Barackman, bigfoot researcher on Animal Planet's television series, Finding Bigfoot, does a video debrief of the last episode of season one.

Cliff said the success of the show motivated the producers to create a seventh episode. This was unexpected since the sixth episode was supposed to be the last one.

"Episode 7 was a surprise to us all. We had no plans to do it. The success of the show kinda took Animal Planet by surprise," said Cliff.

Australian Aboriginals Are First Earth Explorers according to Genetic Study

Image
A lock of hair has helped scientists to piece together the genome of Australian Aborigines and rewrite the history of human dispersal around the world.

DNA from the hair demonstrates that indigenous Aboriginal Australians were the first to separate from other modern humans, around 70,000 years ago.

This discovery marks a new chapter of the human history as it confirms that humans migrated from Africa in separate waves rather than in one single "out-of-Africa" diaspora.

According to Projo.com, the program organized a meeting Wednesday night, inviting West Greenwich residents who have had Bigfoot sightings to attend. "There was quite a big turnout," Keith Hoffman, executive producer of the show.

The episode is still filming but their biggest fan Tim Fasano can't wait to review it, "I really hope this, and other episodes don't follow the cheesy formula of eye-witness accounts, and re-creations that don't prove anything. I wish they would stop adding audio and be honest about it. Did Cliff really hear the three tree knocks  or did they just pay him to say that? Is this show a hoax? Is is real? I think I know the answer."

Steve Kulls September 2011 Bigfoot Expedition at Adirondack State Park

September 2011 Expedition Videoby squatchdetective
The Adirondack State Park has been extremely busy with Bigfoot activity this month. It took less than a week after the Bigfoot sighting at Old Forge for investigators to arrive at the scene. One of the first investigators to arrive at the park found possible stick stacking on a tree. Some believe this to be a clear sign of Bigfoot in the area.

On September 13-15, 2011, Steve Kulls along with members of Tri-City NY Paranormal Society entered the Adirondack State Park in search of Bigfoot. Steve Kulls is a professional Bigfoot investigator of 18 years. He has appeared on several documentaries, numerous news programs and Monster Quest.

The expedition so far has yielded unusual sounds and on one night, they were overcome with feelings they were being watched.

Lets just say they got what they came looking for.

Here's a couple of activities in Adirondack State Park this month:

Different names for Bigfoot (A to Z)

Image
The term "Bigfoot" is a relatively new term. This creature has been around for as long as there have been campfires. It is known by as many different names as there are cultures. Here a just a few of the historical names given to this creature:

George Schaller talks about Bigfoot

George Schaller talks about his interest in undiscovered primates and why he thinks that they should be studied by scientists.

George Beals Schaller (born 1933) is an American mammalogist, naturalist, conservationist and author. Schaller is recognized by many as the world's preeminent field biologist, studying wildlife throughout Africa, Asia and South America. Born in Berlin, Schaller grew up in Germany, but moved to Missouri as a teen. He is vice president of Panthera Corporation and serves as chairman of their Cat Advisory Council along with renowned conservationist and Panthera President Alan Rabinowitz. Schaller is also a senior conservationist at the Bronx Zoo-based Wildlife Conservation Society.

Gede Suantika of the government's Center for Volcanology said activity first picked up in April, with the volcanic quakes jumping from less than five a month to more than 200.

"It also started spewing ash and smoke into the air, sometimes as high as 1,400 meters (4,600 feet)," he said. "That's something I've never seen it do before."

Authorities raised the alert to the second-highest level two weeks ago, but said only villagers within 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the crater needed to evacuate.

Remote Viewer says PBS sound recordings from Fayette County belongs to "non-human hominid like creature"

Image
First, for those who aren't familiar with remote viewing, here's an explanation:
Remote viewing is a mental faculty that allows a perceiver (a "viewer") to describe or give details about a target that is inaccessible to normal senses due to distance, time, or shielding. For example, a viewer might be asked to describe a location on the other side of the world, which he or she has never visited; or a viewer might describe an event that happened long ago; or describe an object sealed in a container or locked in a room; or perhaps even describe a person or an activity; all without being told anything about the target -- not even its name or designation. Basically, remote viewing is related to so-called psi (also known as "psychic" or "parapsychological") phenomena such as clairvoyance or telepathy.

If you have ever watched the shows Finding Bigfoot or Destination Truth (all produced by the same people), they never show you the full process of casting a footprint. Due to the limited amount of time each show has, they're forced to show you the end result, which is the cast itself. Sometimes, what's missing in between are the steps and techniques for making a good cast.

Michael Bastine talks to Coast to Coast AM about Stone Giants and Bigfoot

Author Michael Bastine on Coast to Coast AM speaks about the legend of the ancient Stone Giants and how they became known as Bigfoot.
Among the many legends discussed by Bastine was the tale of the "stone giants," a race of people that are said to have existed on Earth before humans.

He explained that these beings were tasked with "assisting in the structuring of this land for the humans to occupy it." Possessing supernatural powers, the stone giants became boastful of their skills to "the creator." In response to their vanity, the creator decreed that they were to be banished from the Earth.

The repentant stone giants begged for forgiveness and promised, should they be allowed to stay on Earth, that they would "remain out of sight" and not interfere with the planet's other life forms. According to the legend, this request was granted and the stone giants remain on Earth as the creature popularly known as Bigfoot.

This story is really about a Missouri couple's encounter with Bigfoot 14 years ago. But what we read in the following article blew us away.

After their encounter in William R. Logan Conservation Area  near Lincoln County in 1997, Robert and Cynthia Stayte became avid Bigfoot researchers. The couple took a trip to Oregon and Washington, visiting the sites of several reported Bigfoot encounters. One report was from a young Oregon kite salesman who claimed he and his father found a dead Bigfoot lying in a mountain stream.

“They heard a sound and turned around,” Cynthia said. “There was a live Bigfoot in the trees just a few feet away, watching over the dead one. They turned and ran out of there.”

Is Renae Holland A BFRO Fraud?
Update:Tim removed his video and blog post. He must have found out how completely off base and wrong he was about Ranae Holland. Check out Ranae's complete bio on Discovery.com here.

Our old friend Tim Fasano is at it again. This time it's not Todd Standing or Matt Moneymaker he's attacking. We have no idea why he would be onto this woman like this, especially since he has admitted to having the hots for her.

Fasano says the BFRO could be lying about Ranae Holland's credentials. The BFRO claims that Renae Holland is a PHD Biologist who works with brown bears and salmon in the Pacific Northwest, but after extensively searching the internet and the NOAA's website, Fasano said he found no record of Ranae.

"There is no record about her on the internet except for the BFRO or affiliated sites. Why? It seems as if Ms. Holland appeared out of thin air when the Animal Planet show Finding Bigfoot started. BFRO claims she works for NOAA.GOV …

Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society releases recordings of unknown sounds made during Bigfoot investigation

Update from naturalplane.blogspot.com:
"For your review, opinion and enjoyment, I have attached several audio files that were recorded on an Olympus digital hand held recorder while on a Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society sponsored two day outing September 9 and 10th in the Forbes State Forest in Fayette County, Pennsylvania.

Here is some background information as to why our team was there.

A deputy State Constable and Security force supervisor claimed he had a sighting on this property at 3:30 am from a distance of approximately 50 yards away on September 8, 2011. The sighting took place after three weeks of almost unusual nightly sounds heard by several members of the security force that was guarding this construction site. The night shift of the security staff claimed they heard wood knocking, whooping calls, screams, growls and hoots almost on a nightly basis after dark. We interviewed them independently and their stories corroborated what the other officers stated. - Eric Altman, …
