Bigfoot / Sasquatch Reports
« on: April 11, 2018, 10:48:06 AM »
   Hello everyone, I am a sasquatch report investigator based in western WA state ( also not to bad of a deer hunter either  :) ). 

 I have been reading here for a fair length of time and I have found that there are members and friends of members here that have had strange encounters while investing in many of the pursuits we discuss here.

 This topic is not a a place to debate, trash or harass folks who want to discuss events or experiences thet have taken place. If joking, wasting peoples time and running the subject it's comedy course is desired please take it to another thread.  The subject and some individuals involved certainly deserve some laughs but there is a select group of people who take the data side of this very seriously.

 The motivation is simply to understand how these creatures survive and exist in our current state of ecology, killing one of these creatures is not an objective our group is invested in.

 I hope to here both privately and within the thread about what you or someone you know has experienced.  If you chose to reach out privately to me I want to make it clear that your information will remain private.   

 Sasquatch behavior is something that is not well understood and it does expand beyond much more than yells, and banging on trees.

 Noted strange happenings we hear about from areas of reports and track finds include the following.

 - Gibberish talking sounds -  almost like the speech patterns attempted by a hearing impaired person but often very angry and or emotional, we also hear that the volume and pitch is deeper or seemingly ,, not normal for a human ,,.   Also sometimes described like someone who is excited talking but there is not clear words presented.

 - Wooing / Screaming -  This is often either far off or very close to a witness and is described as similar to some of the sounds chimps, bonobos and gorilla produce.  It can also be paired with knocking, whistles, grunts and ground thumps.   Sound type specifically noted would be Whoops, Moan Howls, Guttural screaming, Bellowing and even peacock type sounds. 

 - Whistles -  Loud, and sharp ( not bird like ) both short and long in duration.

 - Knocks / Slaps / Ground thumps and Rock Clacks -   Both loud and subdued and mostly at night, these sounds will also typically take place from more than a single location as it is believed based on the information to be a form of communication. 

 - Vehicle Shaking / Rocking - Hitting, tapping and moving of cars and trailers parked in more remote areas.   It is believed at this point this is either test to see if their is people around or possibly just interest in the object itself.

 - Metal Tapping / Banging - Sounds similar to a tin / steel can being beaten or drummed with a stick.

 - Rock / Object throwing -  This seems to most often happen in areas ( not frequented normally by human traffic ) where people setup camp or park for longer periods of time at night.  It also happens to fisherman along river ways.   We believe this is to possible way they push people out of an area or a way to get free food.

 - Tree Destruction -  waving, repeated cracking and dismantling of trees in a area near a remote camp ( not simply a tree falling ), in some cases the entire tree has been pulled up and positioned across a road way ( almost as if to block ), this is believed to be a form of intimidation or a display.

I'm no Squatch Hunter, nor enthusiast; maybe a casual fan - but sometimes, things happens in the woods and you just are left scratching your head or possibly holding onto that weapon of choice during hunting season a little tighter.  After reading some of the descriptions in the past, and seeing how consistently many experience by others are described very similar in nature, I can't help but wonder if there's a few out there.

Hunting along a hillside, dropping down towards a riverbed - chasing deer, I've had huge river rocks thrown towards me.
During a hunting trip, sleeping in the bed of my truck with the canopy for shelter, I've felt the truck rock, heard something brushing up against it - the .45 moved a little closure to me that night.

It's been a while now - but I remember these times pretty well - one reason my heads stays on a swivel when I'm out the woods alone -

But the outdoors keeps calling and I keep answering....maybe someday I'll meet Mr. Squatch

Saw a video of a guy on Facebook that has a head of Bigfoot, also claimed to have a full body of one.  His dad shot them both in 1953.

  Thank you for giving mention to these types of events and for holding a stance on the subject that does not assume one way or the other.

  I would be interested in hearing the details of those instances.

  I would like to mention that these events as a majority are completely explainable in most instances and are not Sasquatch related.   I will also state there is a record going back hundreds of years that shows that some of the cases just don't fit the bill of other wildlife or human activity.

 I certainly will as this thread moves forward, some of the events I would like to touch on are a bit long winded as I have photos and audio in conjunction.   

 Some time in the coming week I will share some of my information here.

 I have glanced at the story/videos and I can say that it is for a fact completely false.

I know you know the other thread has morphed into something else tha  the original intent but if you read it from the beginning you can decipher the stories and when the transition occurred.

Until physical biological proof is presented it will always be taken less than serious.  I think its a strong possibility but I need DNA or something conclusive.  Loch ness, aliens etc are similar in groupings.  My point is joking and fun will associate bigfoot regardless of peoples wants until such sciences are presented.  I honestly hope somebody finds something and if killing one to show proof is required then fine although I don't think I would pull the trigger myself. :twocents:

I think they do exist they are just one step ahead of us and know if they expose themselves they are destined to an eterinity of being managed by WDFW which will make observing a bigfoot even less likely and require an observation fee along with an access pass

Lets say I find one and shoot it so I can have actual proof. Is WDFW going to fine me and send me to jail or am I going to get a reward? Just wondering. It's good info to have!

 Skamania county had a ordnance that states it is illegal to chase, harass or harm a Sasquatch, you would also pay a fine and possibly face jail time.   

  It sounds silly but it is a real law.  ( I have not reviewed if the law is still in standing )

  There maybe a legal work around for this issue though as there has not yet been a type specimen that can serve as a reference example for the species.

My dad followed tracks in snow while elk hunting in the blue mountains in Oregon many years ago (20 years or so). The way he described them were very much like the tracks that were posted by deerhunter in that big bigfoot thread. I think Cliff from BFRO fame investigated.

I've had large rocks thrown towards me. They were too large for a person to be throwing.  So, I'm a believer. I sure wish I could see one.
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

Okay..... I know I'll hear crap for this. But please respect our experience.

About 9 years ago my brother and I decided to do a high buck hunt. It took us a day and a half to reach our destination just out of devil's park. We got there the day before season and went for a little scouting trip. About an hour before dark we spotted a group of deer. We closed the distance to about 100-120 yards. While glassing the bucks we noticed a figure standing not 15 feet from the deer. It was next to a group of trees and not moving, but definitely not natural. After a few seconds we both assumed what it might be. After 15-20 min it didnt move or shake at all. We thought our eyes were plaaying tricks. We decided to walk strait at it. As soon a we got half way to it, it walked off.

Judge my story as you will. But 2 of us saw it. I know what I saw, and I get hell for my story all the time. Most might think it would be cool to see one. We were scared as hell all night and left for home as soon as the sun came up.

On an early morning trip in April of 1999 or 2000 I was heading east on Hwy 14 along the Columbia River. I was heading out to go turkey hunting and was cursing myself for getting a late start and it was starting to break daylight and I still was about thirty minutes away from my hunting spot. In the faint light I could see a dark animal that was crouched by the side of the road which I assumed was either a bear or a dog. I slowed to check it out but by the time I reached where it had been it had disappeared into the tall grass. As I slowly passed the spot I looked back over my shoulder one final time and spotted the creature now standing up in the grass. It was an ape that stood about 4 to 5 feet tall. This was no bear.  I did a U-turn to check it out but the creature had disappeared again. I got out and did a quick search around the area but never did see it again. I thought about spending more time searching but the thought of going through the brush searching for what I determined was a young bigfoot which probably had its mother close by discouraged me from continuing. A few years earlier I had come face to face with an Alaskan Brown Bear and her cubs that was a rather scary and unpleasant experience. The thought of something similar happening again clouded my judgement about continuing the search. Later I noticed that there had been a  number of bigfoot sightings reported in the surrounding area.

Many years ago a old boy I knew told me about a hunt in the cascades during November . He said he was approaching a ravine and heard some brush breaking . as he looked across less than 100 yards he saw a creature that was either white or covered in snow . He said as it walked up the hill on two feet he could see the tracks appearing, but is was snowing so hard his vission was hampered . He never was sure what it was and he said the hair stood up on his back . He figured that his long bow proably wasnt the right choice of weapon to pursue it with . He said he never told many people about it because he just wasnt sure what it was. I have had a couple of bumps in the night that made me think of his story , I'd like to believe at least the Kid in me does.
My wife told me that I hunt way more than I did when we first got married. I said yeah I know isn't it great !

 I am particularly interested in a section of the cascade range between Granite falls and St.Helens.   

 This stretch has had many reports over the years ( even from forestry service ), the pattern so far seems to suggest that the sasquatch spend most of the warmer months at or above 2400 Ft and then drop down to as low as cover and security will allow.

Some interesting stories and a fun thing to believe in. But really I think at this point in history its totally debunked. Theres literally thousands of trail cams in the woods and has been for a long time now. Simple law of averages would say pics of one would at least keep up in some proportion to sightings.

Theres literally thousands of trail cams in the woods and has been for a long time now. Simple law of averages would say pics of one would at least keep up in some proportion to sightings.

 There are a few trail camera photos of what are likely Sasquatch ( based on size and limb ratios ), I personally know of a photo that has not been published as the owner does not want to receive negative attention. 

 I am aware of at least 3 other photos/videos that are not public and I have heard of a few that are rumored to be included on a few upcoming documentaries in the works.




 It also comes down to the fact that a photo does not hold much weight anymore as things can be fabricated, this is why a few people do not share as they know that folks will just assume that they are making it all up.   If I had ownership of a photo of sasquatch and it was posted in this forum I would likely receive dozens of posts stating that the photo is fake because bigfoot is not real.

 High resolution thermal camera footage is the only way that we can give an illustration of a true living creature that could pass any degree of scientific scrutiny.

Im not sure I understand what the trail cam pic of the owl proves other than my point. I viable breeding population of animals would be showing up with as much surveillance as there exists I the last 2 decades in its habitat. Still, fun campfire stories

Lots of species are still being discovered.  There are humans we still have almost no photographs of.  I am not one to think its not possible because anything is possible.  Plausible is an entirely different thing.

 It is just an example of something on camera that could potentially be a sasquatch or an owl or an other known critter. It was not intended to represent a ,, real bigfoot ,, photo.  In this case there is just not enough information to say what exactly is on camera, it is entirely up to the viewers interpretation.   

 Some folks do have great photos but do not post or share with the public because people will interpret what they view is the truth and more often than not the determination is that it is a hoax on the witness or the witness is hoaxing or it is some other animal. 

Consider yourself in this position:  You have a great photo of a sasquatch on camera, are you ready to post a photo and take ownership of the repercussions ?

 My statement is that they do get detected in these formats ( trail camera/plotwatcher ) but the few truly good photos do not reach the public eye for examination for a number of reasons.

 So it would be fair to say that you would remove yourself from that situation of owning the reputation behind the photo ? 

 If this is the case a third party looking at the photo is already going to discount the information as "shady" and therefore gaining no traction in the scientific sense.

 If you are suggesting that you would put your name and character behind the photo with the intention of collecting an attributed value then it is also discounted by the public as a con or hoax.  Why ? - because there is already a stigma and now someone was making money on it.   

 Either way people don't give credit as they lean on the side of a perceived sure bet and or an assumption based out of ignorance.   This unfortunately is where we as humans get in our own way of understanding the reality of a situation or event.  :bash:

Id recognize the value of what I had and sell it since I care way more about cash then fame. Still though, I digress. This world is way smaller then the days  of these mountains being big mysteries. There not out there bud. Pick up a rifle while your looking though, usually great elk country

Nathan,

IMO your argument is nonsense. If people had good pics they'd post them. 

Besides,many of those trail cams out there have video mode. And still no clear pics or video.

To argue that people don't share is nonsense. I guarantee if I ever got good Biggie video I would share it. 

I get deer, elk, bear, cougar, coyote, bobcat, etc. I get good, irrefutable video.   

Lots of unexplained things happen.   That don't make it bigfoot.

We can agree on this much.     ;)

I wont share pics with the general public.  If I had pics of a presumed "foot" chances are I would not share.  If I ever kill something hunting, probably wont share that either. I get all sorts of odd junk on my trail cam.

 If such pictures are obtained they should be shared at the very least with a serious research group ( not to be shared with the public ) that is actively working on documentation of the species.
 
  There is good reason to believe the overall population of these creatures is not doing so well.

  Humans have a habit of going into untouched areas seeking new resources that through harvest completely change the landscape and as a result create negative effects on the species inhabiting the region.

  There may come a time that if we do not acknowledge their position in wild territories we may drive them to the point of extinction.
