So they can't get one good picture with a game cam?

"Maybe it can sense electromagnetic radiation" Wouldn't have picked up your thermal camera if this was so?

/Maybe bigfoot is just blurry.

Funny how he claims that he debunked hoaxes for 20 years to make us think, "well hey, this guy is legit"

Looks like the guy hired someone to put on a suit.

Why would he have the equipment positioned so far from the "bait" so that "bigfoot" took up a tiny portion of the screen?

Dude, you don't get to achieve Bigfoot's notoriety by being unable to spot a bunch of thermal imaging equipment right on top of your ass.

FTA: "We have, in the organization, maybe 200 game cams out looking for Sasquatches. We haven't got one lousy picture of a Sasquatch, which doesn't make any sense, unless you think that maybe these things are so smart that they either see the game cam," said Greene.

Yes, Mr.Greene; that is the only plausible explanation.

Bigfeet are sighted all over the country. Texas, Michigan, Missouri, Florida (but not Maine, curiously). Even Kansas has sightings. I've been reading old newspapers about Kansas sightings from the 19th century for the last few months.

I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me.

Cryptozoology may be marginal, but it is a valid scientific pursuit. Additionally, many eminent people, including Jane Goodall, have gone on record to varying degrees attesting to the possibility of the existence of large undiscovered primates in places where the Sasquatch myth exists.

Having said all that, this is faker than fake.

King Arthur: Not at all. He could be carried.
1st soldier with a keen interest in Bigfoot: What? A swallow carrying a Bigfoot?
King Arthur: It could grip it by the fur!
1st soldier with a keen interest in Bigfoot: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a five hundred pound Bigfoot.
King Arthur: Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here?

I dunno, he keeps saying that the thermal image can't be faked, but I'd like to see images under the same conditions of a guy in a suit and of a bear.

SarahBW: It's a bear.

Fuzzier than I expected. But yes, I think I saw the thing rear up several times, which is what bears do. You don't get many Bigfoot sightings in Maine (or Eastern Canada) because everybody knows the woods are full of black bears and the woods are also full of hunters and fishermen who are experienced enough to recognize the signs of a black bear.

There are also black bears in places like Florida, but there are more people who haven't got the woodcraft to tell a black bear from a cryptid.

If there are Bigfoot out there, they should be turning up on camera pretty soon and on Facebook within minutes after that. All the men in my family got motion-sensitive cameras for Christmas in the last couple of years. Every hunter who is more than half serious puts out a salt lick and watches it for signs of deer, moose and bear. With the cameras, they can put the salt licks out and watch them 24/7, day and night.

There is no wild animal that doesn't like salt. It's hard to get unless you are a carnivor. Bears are omnivors so they'll check out anything.

Putting out fruit and chocolate bars will get you a bear in no time at all unless Bigfoot has a tremendous sense of smell and no caution whatsover around manifestly human artifacts and scents.

If there is one thing we know about Bigfoot is that she is as shy as a fugly Catholic religious novice in a nunnery full of bull dykes. The scent of man, let alone a plastic box, should send her running the other way.

The guy's got the right idea, but you need a really good non-fuzzy photograph to prove anything. Fuzzy dots prove nothing.

Mind you, if Bigfoot is real and as sly as she would have to be, then you might go for a 100 years without getting a good photo. There are still big cats and other large mammals that have been photographed only once in the wild, or not at all.

There are some who claim to have found fur and feces. The best labs could do in analyzing it was to say, "This doesn't match any known animal." or sometimes "It could be from a combination of creatures, but we don't know."

So nothing conclusive. It does help to have discovered an animal in order to use its stool or hair to identify it.

I'm skeptical about almost everything, but I saw... Something... when I was a teenager, and I have yet to figure out how it could have been faked, or why anyone would bother to do it when nobody was around to see them, on private property.

Here's one from 2000^ though the directions say I-70 when they mean K-10. Make of that what you will.

Another one from 2006. (new window)

Anytime you want to go Bigfoot hunting let me know.

Bigfoot certainly lives in the mountains of northern CA. Specifically, Siskiyou wilderness, and the western Marble Mountain wilderness in the Wooley creek canyon. Little north fork of the salmon river, outside of Etna is another good bet if you get out there quietly well off trail.

You think it's a joke or people are crazy, but I suggest you spend a week hiking some of those remote river canyons alone and get back to me. I stick to the high country at this point.

Awesomeness, you're on!

I saw something on the Scenic River Road, the half between Lecompton and Topeka, a few years ago. It was tall and shaggy and poked it's head through the tree row, saw the car coming, and disappeared. As far as I know nobody keeps any bison or other livestock in that area and I haven't heard any reports of bears.

Apparently, even if you do shoot him, he just gets up and runs away.

He really doesn't mean it when he asks you to shoot him.

You shoulda shot him again. I did and he went down.

Bigfoot are descended from the scant remnants of Clovis Point Indians who survived the catastrophe 13,000 years ago that caused the extinction of most of the megafauna on the North American continent.
Over numerous generations, population bottlenecks caused the descendants of the surviving Clovis Point Indians to become hairy long-lived giants.
There is a precedent for this kind of mutation: The British Royal family. At least one of Queen Elizabeth's cousins was born a hairy giant that lived to over one hundred years old.

Blurry or invisible to cameras or the naked eye - Check
Shows up in thermal imaging - Check
Doesn't leave other Predator corpses - Check

I can't defend his camera placement but his MO is to set up the camera and then leave the area so he's not there to zoom.

hbk72777: We have something with a weird high pitched howl here in Concord, who knew it was bigfoot?

It was probably a Screech Owl that made the sounds you heard. Screech Owls can make some just God-awful, scary a$$ noises, and none of the sounds they make are bird-like. They tend to make a long, high pitched scream (hence the term Screech Owl) or they sometimes use a cry that sounds more like a woman's screams. All the sounds that a Screech Owl can make are unpleasantly loud, sudden, and scary as hayell.

These birds are native to NC, but they live mostly in the Appalachians. I live near Hickory NC, and we do have Screech Owls living hereabouts. Hickory's not too far from Concord.

First time I ever heard a Screech Owl was when I was 10. My family was camping in the Linville Gorge, and I got up in the middle of the night to water a tree. I was just outside the camp when a Screech Owl let 'er rip, good and loud. I didn't soil myself, but it was a near thing. Seriously though, I thought there a Bigfoot was in the woods.

/Cool story, huh?

Rawry: Jesús Aceves is a good example of Hypertrichosis. His sister has is too. Last read she was still young, but if you like hairy girls look her up.

Thanks, I've been aware of hypertrichosis for quite some time now. During the 1970's there was a Bigfoot scare in Burbank, California. A number of people had seen a huge naked hairy man in the drainage canals. A reporter friend of mine went out to investigate and met the Bigfoot.
The Bigfoot was seven feet tall, hirsute, and had been living off the land nearly his entire life. He was also a Native American and knew enough English to get by. He was exploring the drainage canals looking for foods that were familiar to him. He also took advantage of Salvation Army soup kitchens.
The reason the Bigfoot was there in the first place was because he just wanted to spend the winter somewhere sunny. The last anybody saw of him, he was headed back up north.
There are no apes in the North American fossil record. However, from time to time, Native American graves containing giant skeletons have been found. During the 1800's, every penny ante carnival owner had a giant Indian skeleton in his sideshow. Most of them were fake, a very few of them were real. Most of those have probably ended up being tossed out into the garbage. I imagine that there are a number of modern museums that might have Bigfoot skeletons in their basements and are unaware of what they have.
If you care to look in the archives of the Long Beach Press Telegram, you can see pictures of the Burbank Bigfoot himself.

From my files:

A skeleton of a human being measuring 9 feet four inches was found in a hollow log about three miles east of Louisville, on last Tuesday, by a Mr. Graham, who was at the time cutting wood. An old bow and several arrows were also found in the same log. Upon close examination a hole was found in the skull resembling that made by a leaden ball.

I found this gem on the BFRO website.

"I tell you it was the creepiest thing I've ever heard in my life --the tones it gave off. I've spent a lot of time living in the mountains. I've heard all sorts of animals, but never anything like this.''

"The day after we heard the noise, one of the dogs came back to the yard with something big in her mouth that looked like poop. It was huge. It had hair in it. The smell was really bad. It was really big. I tried to get it out of her mouth with a stick, but she just growled at me. It was definitely a huge poop. It was more like a horse smell than a human smell, but it was definitely not horse poop. The outside almost looked like Slim Jims, like it had a real thin skin. Something about it had that look to it, as if someone was stuffing a sausage."

You fail your Thermography Level I class for failure to FOCUS!

In short, the bigfoot is bogus. Focus. People and creatures are not consistently heat emitting like those images if they are focused.


So, focus the image and it becomes a man in a suit. With focus comes clarity. But the last thing the charlatans want is clarity.

So, fake. Yes, that's a professional opinion.

Speaking of fakes....

I can make anyone look like a ghost, simply choose an appropriate color scheme (decent imagers have an array of choices) and do a soft focus.

Presto, a ghost. White and all.

Want to see really spooky? Look out there's something behind you stuff? Misunderstand thermal reflections. I was amazed at what would reflect heat when I was learning the skills. Don't understand that and you'll swear there are extra things there.

Understand reflectivity and emmisivity and the world becomes clear. As my mentor taught me, You must learn to think thermally.

And any image of a "ghost" is simply misunderstood. Willfully.
