Has anyone seen Bigfoot in person?

“Let me further clarify what I’m asking.
Has anyone had an encounter that left them with zero doubt?
I’m not talking “What’s that down the hill? Is that a bear?
It’s big whatever it is.”
I’m talking about turning the bend on a trail through the woods and you come face to face with a Bigfoot.
Zero doubt encounters
?”

When I went to Reddit to catch up on the latest on r/bigfoot this morning, I saw the heading for this post and loved it! But what does it mean? What is it really saying? Well I think he/she is saying that they want to hear about your sighting, not what you think you saw, but bigfoot standing in front of you, stealing your sandwich and crushing your camera.

Well maybe not all of that. But when we are logging in these sightings or writing about them in a blog, or hearing one million a week on a podcast, should we have on, or count the ones that people are saying the think it’s a bigfoot. Should we make sure we only report on the ones that have been investigated? Coordinates, clear photo, exact descriptions, etc? Are we really doing good reporting, by sharing all the more vague ones?

The amount of sightings coming weekly is an insane amount. For those who take sighting reports how many are you getting weekly? Where is Squatchermetrics when I need them? I don’t have exact numbers but a hell of a lot should cover it. And with so many reports coming in now maybe I/we should scrutinize and investigate them a bit more than we already do…

But, all of that is a topic for another day.

Back to Reddit…

The question did get answered and here are a few of those answers…

I haven’t seen a Bigfoot but I am a huge believer, but my boyfriend never believed or even cared to watch anythingBigfoot related with me but a couple nights ago he wasworking late and on his way back home and he happenedto be driving down a road around 11 or 12 that night and he saw something that he couldn’t explain. He was absolutely frightened and terrified, he explained that
when he was driving he saw something cross the road into a wooded area and he got up close to the area wherehe saw it cross he saw something about 7 ft tall darkbrown with broad shoulders and a very thick neck. He is very sure that he saw a Bigfoot and I asked him could it be a bear and he said no because he watched it walk on 2 legs across the road and through the wooded area and he
could see the shoulders of the creature. He was never interested before in any of the Bigfoot related things I would watch but lately he has been asking me questions about them and looking at pictures of them and comparing what he saw that night. I have never seen him really shaken by anything before but whatever he saw has changed his view on bigfoot. It’s been almost a week and he has nightmare about what he seen that night, a couple
days ago he woke in the middle of night in sweats and explaining that every-time he closes his eyes he sees the creature in his dreams. I don’t doubt his experience at all and honestly I am a little jealous that he got to witness one lol. He doesn’t know that I am sharing his experience because he doesn’t want any mocking him and his experience. I asked him did he happen to take a picture of it and he said that it was last thing on his mind because he didn’t wanna be anywhere near it or even get close to it. We live in Georgia and I have looked at reports from Georgia and reports close to where he saw it, I wanted to report his experience on a Bigfoot website but he doesn’t want his experience out there or have his name attached to it so this is as close as I’m willing to report it. He is absolutely sure that what he saw was a Bigfoot and I
100% believe him.

Enough people have had a “zero-doubt” encounter that there are catalogs and databases and books published of interviews of witnesses. The catalogs of records of interviews of witnesses are obviously not inclusive of every witness. The unmistakable visual encounters are typically very brief, lasting only a few seconds, and most people are in a state of stunned shock about what they are seeing. That’s the best explanation I have for why there are still no (or very few) good camera-phone based videos or
pictures. In the time it takes one to get out a phone and open the camera app, the sighting may be over, and it’s difficult to pull your eyes away, let alone have the presence of mind to take a picture. The closer and clearer the subject, the more shocking, or even terrifying, it is. That being said the animal that I saw in Georgia was very similiar to the PG footage. The huge frame and athletic looking build. The most notable difference from the two would have been the hair color. In the PG footage to me it seems like she has a darker brown or almost black color hair. The creature I saw (under the headlights) appeared to be more of a lighter brown or medium brown color but same length (like 3 or 4 inches). This probably doesn’t help but honestly it looked to me like your storybook sasquatch … like something you’d see on a movie poster. It really was spot on.
It seems logical that there would be some variation in color with the change in geography/topography or one could raise the point that the Southeastern US and Pacific Northwest bigfoots are subspecies of
one another. One thing i can say with certainty is that it was not anything like the skunk Ape /more like giant traditional Ape accounts I have heard from down in Florida and other wetland/swamp areas. It also definitely wasnt any dogman type thing lol. However, I will say it does not rule out the legitimacy of those claims (however skeptical one might be). The particular area of the state I was in was large rolling hills (small mountains), pipelines, state management areas, pine tree forests, red clay, and creeks/lakes. More of a similar environment to what is in the Northwest as opposed to swampy coastal Georgia. Looking back one thing I wish I would have focused more on or observed better were the eyes. It seems like every account seems to change with regard to the eye characteristics and color.”

“My son saw a 9ft tall creature he described as looking like a Neanderthal staring at him through our cabin window on our property in southeast Oklahoma in the Ouachita mountains. He wasn’t a believer in Sasquatch and he still questions what the heck he saw. This happened about 4
wks ago.”

I think if you’re looking to be convinced that they exist then you’ll probably have to see one for yourself [unless water-tight evidence emerges]. But anyone prepared to give the circumstantial evidence a fair hearing has to come to the conclusion that people are repeatedly seeing
them. The real question isn’t really ‘do they exist’ so much as “what are they?’
ETA: I don’t know they exist as I’ve never seen one. One problem for many seems to be dealing with the paradigm shift that results from either a ‘zero doubts encounter’ or accepting that they’re real [even if you haven’t seen one]. If you know/accept that they’re real then the world becomest a very different place, IMO.”

Throat Singing for Bigfoot…

https://www.reddit.com/r/bigfoot/comments/tgkfw3/bigfoot_on_tiktok_no_seriously/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

This was an interesting post from Reddit. You know I’ve never been fond of the yelling and knocking technique, my technique has always been to enter the woods passively.

But what about throat singing to communicate. It’s less aggressive and more mesmerizing I would think.

By the early 21st century, throat-singing was once again used to lull babies to sleep, lure wild and semidomesticated animals, help gain the favour of the spirit of the place, and summon shamanic spirits and Buddhist gods.. . -Brittanica

If throat singing can lure semi domesticated animals in, what about a bigfoot. Would this be more passive and pleasing to them?


“The primatologists at the University of St. Andrews discovered that wild gibbons in Thailand have developed a unique song as a natural defense to predators. Literally singing for survival, the gibbons appear to use the song not just to warn their own group members, but those in neighbouring areas.”—Science Daily

If primates can throat sing and humans can throat sing maybe we can break some communication barriers with this technique.

We’ve all heard Sierra Sounds, we know the communication they use there is something we can’t mimic…but what about throat singing as an in between?

It was a great Reddit post. And who knows? Get the right singer at the right location and maybe we’ll get lucky?

Have an awesome Friday everyone!

Werewolf Wednesday…

𝑾𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒘𝒐𝒍𝒗𝒆𝒔…
The idea of a being, half wolf, half man, and possessing also many demoniacal attributes, is a very curious piece of old-world superstition still to be found in very many European countries , and strengthened, no doubt, by the discovery, at times, of children who have been carried off and cared for by wolves who preferred the role of foster-mother to that of devourer —an occurrence of which there are frequent proofs on record. The wild and howling night winds, the Maruts that gave name to our too familiar nightmare, may have given the first notion of demon wolves to the trembling listener as they passed shrieking by his solitary tent or hut. As the transition of thought by which the spirit-wolf and the human form became amalgamated is easily imagined. There appears to be plenty of evidence that, at different times, a form of madness has broken out by which individuals have fancied themselves to be turned into wolves. Burton, in his ” Anatomy of Melancholy,” desoribes this disease, which he calls Lycanthropia, as ” when men run howling about graves and fields in the night, and will not be dissuaded ,that they are not wolves or some such beasts.”
-Manchester Courier, October 20, 1883

Happy Werewolf Wednesday!

Lost Our Howl….

How long does it take you, when you enter the woods, till you feel like you’re a part of it? Till your senses have synced to what’s all around you and you notice everything? The sound of the birds singing, the click of an opossum call, the wind moving every leaf around you and branches snapping all around…”

We think, “god I need to go to the woods and chill, I need some nature!”

But you don’t have to go to nature, you ARE nature. You’re a living creature on the planet earth, we started here, in the forest, we’ll most likely end there as well. One of the worst thing we did as a species was to separate ourselves from nature. Have we ever felt wild and free like a wolf since then?

We’ve lost or howl my friends and we need to get it back….🐺🐺🐺🐺🐺🐺

Happy Werewolf Wednesday!!

Ancient Japanese ‘killing stone’ said to contain evil demon has cracked open

Located in the mountainous northern region of Tochigi, near Tokyo, the rock is something of a tourist hotspot.
— Read on nypost.com/2022/03/08/ancient-japanese-killing-stone-said-to-contain-evil-demon-has-cracked-open/

2022 herr we go! Now we have demons unleashed! Joking aside, this is a story I want to follow so I can see what becomes of the rock. Should they repair it, or let it remain as and where it is?

The Witch Diggers…Part One

“It was nearly midnight when he started on his return over stony hills and hollows. Though he was a bold youth, he became silent as he approached the lonely valley known as Rocky Ravine. When half way through the tortuous cliff between the hills a sound attracted his attention. On his right, near tho top of the hillside, a curious figure was seen creeping from rock to rock and keeping well in the shadows. It carried something which gleamed brightly now and then as the moon’s rays fell upon it. It came nearer aud nearer the farmer, who had crouched down behind a clump of blackberry bushes, with a strange feeling of dread within him. The mysterious being animal or man approached until it reached the roadway within ten feet of the boy, when with a bound it sprang to the top of a huge boulder, where it crouched for a moment in the full glare of the moon. Frank Rose gave one look back and then shut his eyes with a gap of horror. The thing upon tho rock was a man. But what a man ! When Frank got home that night he told his story of what he had seen upon the way of a creature which, though it walked on “all fours” and was covered with hair from head to foot, carried a gleaming axe and displayed other indications of being human. It was gaunt but muscular, and had burning eyes that shone through long, fancied locks of hair. He had seen this thing but for a moment as it crouched upon a rock. Then it leaped down on the other rock , and he made his way out of the deserted valley as quickly as possible. Young Rose’s story created little agitation among the neighbors. They practical pooh-poohed it, the superstitious added it to their list of ghost tales and inwardly resolved never again to be caught in the neighborhood of Rocky Ravine after nightfall….

But the adventure was not to end so lightly. On the very next night, Henry Simon and William Downey, stock buyers, living in another county, rode within a short distance of the dreary valley, when they were astonished to hear the reverberation of a succession of blows, evidently made by some instrument of steel or iron. They tied their horses and walked up the dark ravine until they arrived at a tremendous cavity which had evidently been excavated by human hands. Twenty feet below in tho darkness some one was striking blow alter blow upon tho rocky bottom of the pit. ” What are you doing down there?”‘ shouted Simon. For answer a stone came whizzing through the air, narrowly missing Downey’s head. A big, hairy creature sprang out of the hole with a frightful yell and disappeared with surprising rapidity over the side of the hill, still carrying its steel tool, though running apparently upon four legs. The traders were Stupefied with astonishment, aud lost no time in getting out of the neighborhood.”
