The Zipper

Other recordists have commented about unusual recordings of what sound like zippers. If this is a mimicked sound it would make sense in that one of the most often heard sounds in a campground at night is zippers on tents and sleeping bags. I had never recorded anything resembling this sound. Early in May of […]

The Trickster

Recently I was invited by two fellow researchers to visit their research site here in Central Illinois. In the past they have heard odd vocalizations and wood knocks. Recently they experienced a roar and voices coming from the woods. My wife and I camped in the area and after meeting up with our friends spent […]

Sasquatch DNA and Its Illinois Connection

The long awaited scientific paper on sasquatch DNA was published today, 13 Feb 2013. I am very excited that the blood sample that I obtained from Chatham, Illinois in September of 2011 was one of only three DNA samples nationwide in which a complete genome sequence was obtained. The blood sample came from a downspout that […]

Illinois Barker

Once in awhile something very odd happens when I am recording.  This past Thursday, the 29th of November, 2012 my wife and I were awakened at 12:30 a.m. I heard my dog whining on the back deck. I first thought she had been attacked by one of the dogs that travels occasionally past our home. […]

Reference Species

Barred Owls (Strix varia) have a very wide-spread distribution throughout the Eastern United States, Eastern Canada and many areas in the West. I have always held the belief that serious bigfoot researchers should become acquainted with not only the animals in their research areas but also birds and especially owls. Barred Owls make many vocalizations. Other […]

Camera Shutter?

My grandson is two and half years old. And as such, like most toddlers, is challenged when it comes to language skills. He has pet names for people and things. He differentiates between two sets of grandparents by the names of our dogs. Hence my name is “Papa Belle”, and his other grandfather is “Papa […]

Squatchin’ in Southern Colorado – 2012

Every year I return at least twice to the area where the Colorado Howl recordings were obtained the summer of 2009.  The site is on a remote dead-end road, being 25 miles from the nearest pavement. I have spent many days there all alone enjoying the quietude. I arrived on Saturday, the 21st of July […]

Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?

If there is one Achilles heal when dealing with sasquatch research it is behavior.  Sasquatch, as do all species of animals, tend to display the same set of behaviors within their specific groups. One behavior that has been reported is the sasquatch affinity for domestic chicken. Several years ago I was asked by a fellow researcher to […]

If You Go Out In The Woods Today

Since I was a child I have loved the the song the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. If you go out in the woods today You’re sure of a big surprise. If you go out in the woods today You’d better go in disguise. I have a few rules setup for myself when I am in the […]

Simple Gifts

One common occurrence from people who believe they are having visits from sasquatch is gifts. This concept is not something new as it has been reported by witnesses for quite some time. We have lived in our present home for three years now.  I do occasionally record unusual sounds coming from the woods that surround our […]
