After being involved in the Bigfoot Field Guide Radio Show, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about if patterns could possibly make it a lot easier for collecting possible Bigfoot evidence especially during expeditions. By discussing the events of the Memorial Day expedition and the events that happened during a symposium at the Cc camp I’m now questioning if we are missing the opportunities to get the technology in areas where the patterns are showed to be consistent.

Let’s start off with the Memorial Day expedition. The locations that we had our first activity during the night ops pretty much matched up with the experiences we had the year before in the October expedition by using the ghost post. I really think that shows where these creatures they may be hunkered down when they’re in the area. Just all the events that have been recorded there, the thermal hits even we had the television crew out there, the four-wheeler being picked up, the audio collected, and other things. If memory serves me right, the night that the four-wheeler was picked up the calf was being carried towards the settlement area as it’s called. There seems to be a consistent pattern of activity coming out of that area. Yes, the four-wheelers do seem to bring the creatures towards camp during the ATV night runs, but I’m wondering if we wouldn’t have better success at placing the technology closer to that area.

And that night at the cc camp, the audio pattern alone with the sound of the tin, then the first group of dogs barking, the thermal hits, the being growl that, the thermal hits in the Cedars, and then another group of dogs barking, seem to show a pattern of travel. I don’t think they were dealing with an animal that varies much from its normal routine. Like most animals if it safe going through there you’ll continue to go through there. Even as humans to a large extent follow those rules. I know it’s been a general consensus that IR lights on game cams seem to be detected and avoided by these critters. However, with some of these new plot watchers that they talk about just take random pictures at set intervals not relying on the movement to trigger them. I’m really wondering if that might work by putting them in areas where they are used to traveling.

I know it is common for researchers to seem do take up specialized niches in researching Bigfoot and in doing so we make that our primary focus. That can be a good thing, but are we limiting ourselves by doing that? Now I also know that equipment is expensive, and with each of us funding their own bills in Bigfoot research there is not a lot that can be spent by any one individual. The question I asked myself, and want to ask you is, have we get to set in our routines? Yes, were each getting results, but could we get more results by changing our routines? During our expeditions, have we gotten to routine with what we do? Is it time we come up with some new ideas to implement when we’ve got the capability with the different niches in one place and the manpower to implement it?

Even in my own research area it is so easy for me to get into a routine where if one places had activity I go back to that place time and time again basically ignoring other places because I may know this place a little bit better, got some of my first audio in these places, but is at how I get the best audio? The short answer is I don’t know. Just knowing a limitation of our equipment things can be happening a quarter to a half mile away from our location and we never know what was done. We don’t even know the event happened. I know in the MABRC we think out of the box a lot more than a lot of groups do I think it’s time to step it up.

I know hindsight is 20/20, the during the Memorial Day expedition if we would’ve had audio covering the trail better where all the evidence seems to be connected to from the footprint, to the settlement area night ops, to where the four-wheeler was picked up, and other sightings in that trail area just think what that audio/pictures may have collected as we went through and afterwards. I realize we all want to spread out audio and other devices to cover as much ground as possible. But in some of these well researched areas like the Valley I think we probably already established a pattern that they use. Are we stretching ourselves to thin? Are we losing a lot of opportunities for possible evidence collection that we could have gotten? I think these are all things that as researchers we need to re-evaluate on a regular basis

To follow up what Randy is talking about, here is a overview of what happened on the map below. The red arrow is showing the direction that the ATVs were traveling, when the blue arrow shows the direction the white bigfoot took across the trail in front of us, then circled around and going back across behind the ATVs. The green arrow is the direction that myself and Rebelson took after it. It moved so fast that it went through the woods like it was walking down a street. The red circled 1 is the approximate location of the shelter? in the following two pics. I suspect that this was built to give them shade and watch the trail as it is approximately 75 feet from the trail.

Yes that is part of what I was trying to get at. Our Next expedition there I think it would be best to better cover with recorders the area where that stuff happened. I'd love to see one at that possible manipulation you have in the pictures. That area has had a lot of activity and warrants extra equipment. It is apparent that if they are in the area that is one place they travel through if not hunker down in. Here's where we could possibly get audio and other evidence of what they do naturally when people aren't around. I know I need to try and get closer to where I get my better stuff as there is more I am missing.
