September-December 2017 update

IMG_4084

It has been a while since I have posted anything on here, and I feel like it is time to let you all have an update on the latest activities.

First, we have had 4 Outings since September, averaging one a month. Three have been to the Sam Houston region, and the last to McCurtain County in southeast Oklahoma. We find it most extraordinary to be able to say that every trip has actually yielded documented evidence. Since we have no sasquatch in my possession, we cannot claim what exactly it is that we have evidence of yet. It is simply evidence of an animal that does not fit existing and known classifications currently. The vast majority of our evidence collected has been audio. We have yet to make any direct physical sightings of any means. We would like to invite everyone here to assist us in trying to identify a known animal as the source of these recordings. We have been unable to locate a credible and referenced source for these sounds. If you can make a match and be able to back it up with known and recognized recordings of a known animal, please come forward. We will post recordings captured in another post shortly.

We have been in the Sam Houston region on 9/14-17, 10/19-22, and 11/9-12 with our private research group in Texas. On 12/7-10 We were with the Southern Bigfoot Alliance core researchers in Oklahoma. It was enlightening to experience the difference between the two groups of researchers and their methods. Superficially, both have similar practices. However, we have found that the SBA has a more “aggressive” and action oriented outlook, in that they spend more time away from camp in isolated areas, especially at night. This is mainly due to the nature of their research area, which is much larger and more isolated than what we have in southeast Texas. In the Sam Houston region all forest roads are blocked except for a specific few. In the Quachita NF most were open and accessible to vehicles.  The SBA group dove much further distances and covered more ground due to this, especially at night. We were able to stake out 3 locations a night. Conversely, in Texas, we tend to travel to one location and hike in for an extended period, but also tend to stay more centered on our camp location as well for activity.

We find it compelling that we captured audio of the same unknown howl both in Texas and in Oklahoma.  The Oklahoma location was not nearly as active as Texas is (Audio wise), which makes us feel the capture of this call is even more remarkable.

Again, we invite anyone to please step forward with positive identification of the source of these calls.

You never know where Boogers might pop up…

This was brought to my attention by a Facebook post from Chuck Schlabs. I am always on the lookout for interesting references to sasquatch alternative names such as “booger” that were only regionally prevalent prior to the Internet. Here, Bob Ross is talking while painting, and mentions “Boogers” at approximately 15:45. What is fascinating is his off the cuff passing reference. This show is season six, which took place around 1989, therefore well prior to the internet. That means he had to have been familiar with this term in a cultural context. This would be an example of an “original, organic source” for the use of the word “booger” and its presence in society prior to the mass media blitz of the 1990’s and the internet. Furthermore, his using it in context to his painting’s topic lends more weight to his knowing exactly what a “Booger” was.

2017 Texas Bigfoot Conference Sponsorship

2017 conference

We are proud to announce we are sponsoring this years conference. We have not attended a conference since the original one in 2001, which ended with our truck being sideswiped by a guy passing on the right. This year, hopefully there will not be a pattern that emerges.

We are looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones, and as always getting together and comparing notes. We have 2 new investigation areas in addition to the Sam Houston region this year, and we shall see if they provide any fruit. Already, our team has recorded an impressive set of vocals out of Southeast Texas for us this year, and we believe the activity for the rest of the year will be good.

 

The Southern Bigfoot Alliance Youth Expedition of 2017

We just returned from spending the weekend with the AWESOME folks that hosted the SBA’s Youth Expedition. We wish especially to thank Dustin, Bryan, Mark, Shane, Gary, and Jacob for an outstanding weekend. This was a dry run of an event that this group is hoping to become an annual event. Three days of family and bigfoot. You can’t beat that.

Mark D. especially gets a big shout out as the gentleman who excelled at the impossible task of holding this group of kids interested and entertained for about 45 minutes listening to a rather educational lecture on what sasquatch are believed to be at this time. He included new and fresh material provided by fellow investigators which these kids were privileged to see. Any person who can interest 3yr to 14yr old children at the same time for so long a period deserves recognition. Well Done!!

We also wish to  thank the owners of the Laketime RV Park of Sulphur, Oklahoma. They provided above and beyond service.

Our one complaint came from little Owen, who was sad he did not see any monsters while monster hunting, lol. As a consolation, he was able to erect his first “sand castle”.

 

 

 

The Brazos Booger Bridge

IMG_3702

This is an abandoned bridge across the Brazos River in Central Texas.

This bridge has a local reputation that if a person is here at night, they will be screamed at, have objects thrown at them, and have their vehicles jarred. We have received 2 anecdotal reports from locals that the usual time of activity is between 2-4 a.m..

These are views of the ends and the south facing side of the Bridge. The north is the location of the new, replacement bridge that I will post views from below. People are reporting that either when parked at the ends of the bridge, or while fishing below the bridge, they occasionally will be harassed. I have yet to find a witness account where someone reports actually seeing any animals responsible for the harassment.

 

This is the 2nd location in our region of Texas that appears to have a “troll” reputation.  The first we came across is The Coke County Troll.
