    We only have black bears. And where there are Bigfoot, there will be no bears.
    I am getting pepper spray for other reasons though.

    Anyone is welcome to come if they can.
    To my south we have Dogman reports and the famous Dogman of Brey road incident.

    Bigfoot Tracks Found in New York State?

    upload_2021-2-20_15-49-9.png

    An interesting set of photographs from New York state show what appears to be a trail of tracks that were left behind in the snow and some suspect that they could have come from a Sasquatch. The Facebook group Bigfoot Researchers of the Hudson Valley posted the intriguing images earlier this week and explained that they had been discovered a few days prior in the village of Pawling. The person sharing the images indicated that whatever created the tracks seemed to have a six-foot stride and a close-up photograph of a potential print suggested that creature possessed an approximately 15-inch-long foot.

    As one might imagine, response to the pictures has been mixed with some members of the group theorizing that the markings were made by an animal, such as a rabbit or squirrel, bounding across the snow. Meanwhile, others argued that the tracks were from the famed Bigfoot. Hudson Valley is no stranger to high strangeness, as the area boasts a long history of bizarre UFO events and, last summer, was the site of a wild report wherein a woman claimed to have encountered an aggressive Sasquatch. Fortunately for the person who found these recent tracks, whatever created them had long since left the area, which may have saved them from a run-in with a similarly pugnacious cryptid.

    Hmmm, I have seen running rabbits leave impressions somewhat like that when running as their front and back feet land in nearly the same spot. However, those impressions are alot smaller and look more indistinct due to the snow flying and dropping back into the track when the rabbit jumps again. It looks like whatever made those tracks was moving at a slower pace and actually compressed the snow down to the hard pack or ice. We have the same kind of snow here right now.

    Something about the way the feet were pointed not quite right. I'm thinking guy my size with fake feet. Look at my size 13 EEEE bootprints in the back yard right now - especially the ones with a little melt - and tell me I'm wrong :) You'd think Gigantopithicus is back there

    If I thought there was a group of people nearby who wanted to study UFOs or cryptids that didn't make me want to die from secondary embarrassment I'd join it in a blink. I think this woman has a small shop and this is part of their admittedly clever marketing.

    I'm no Daniel Boone but I've lived around here my entire life, spent plenty of time out in the woods cycling, hiking, camping and hunting and just can't make that leap. Nobody else over the years has even mentioned it until these cornpones came along. You want to make the argument, New York state even a short distance from here really does have zillions of acres of howling remote wilderness it could easily live in. Pennsylvania more so - and Stan Gordon certainly thinks it's squatchy over there. But just because you got a big pond it doesn't mean you got big fish in it. Or plesiosaurs.

    That looks to me to be tracks left behind from a squirrel hopping, no rabbit or Bigfoot. IMHO

    that close up face - I've seen that on tv somewhere before. Les Stroud was out being dramatic about trees in the woods and they shot video of something exactly like that, could've been the very same clip

    Bigfoot Filmed in Florida?

    A man hiking in the Florida panhandle captured intriguing footage of a bipedal creature which he suspects could be a Bigfoot. The potential Sasquatch sighting reportedly occurred late last month as Tyler Howell was exploring a wooded area near the community of Crestview. Stopping at a location along some power lines, the witness was stunned when looked off in the distance and saw a dark figure walking across a clearing.

    Although Howell managed to capture some footage of the sighting, which can be seen here, it is unfortunately fairly typical of most potential Sasquatch videos as the nature of the creature in the clip is incredibly difficult to discern. What makes Howell suspect that it may have been Bigfoot is that it is currently deer bow hunting season in Florida and, were the figure a human hunter, they would have been required to wear some kind of orange clothing as a safety measure.

    While Howell's footage may be hard to decipher, some Bigfoot enthusiasts argue that the creature's posture and apparent stride make for the strong possibility that it is the famed cryptid. Skeptical viewers, however, posit that the bipedal creature is probably just a person who was either unknowingly cast as Sasquatch or an active participant in an elaborate prank. For his part, Howell says that he has returned to the area several times since his sighting in the hopes of spotting the mystery animal again, but has yet to encounter anything unusual.

    I think it is a black bear that was first standing to get a better look at him, then got down on all fours to shuffle away. Bears can still be fairly tall when on all fours, which makes them look like they are walking on two legs while hunched over.

    Justin Humphrey was on C2C with Connie Willis just the other night. He is explicitly making this proposal to raise money for his district, which he decribes as one of the poorest in the state. He also describes it as having already embraced "Bigfoot Tourism" with several points of interest already established.

    "Humphrey said he is just trying to capitalize on what merchants in Hochatown, a popular southeastern Oklahoma destination in McCurtain County, are already doing by selling Bigfoot to tourists. Bigfoot merchandise is a popular seller in Hochatown. Nearby in the town of Honobia, there is an annual Bigfoot festival each October, so the hunting season ideally would coincide with that, he said." A Bigfoot hunting season in Oklahoma? Here's why a lawmaker filed this unusual bill.

    "Tourism is one of the biggest attractions we have in my House district," the state legislator, who was elected in 2016, explained. "Establishing an actual hunting season and issuing licenses for people who want to hunt Bigfoot will just draw more people to our already beautiful part of the state."
    "It will be a great way for people to enjoy our area and to have some fun," he continued.
    Okla. Rep. Proposes ‘Bigfoot’ Hunting Season — But Official Says Creature Isn't Recognized

    Humphrey may or may not believe Bigfoot really exists. But he probably doesn't care. His proposal is strictly to generate tourism dollars. Do you think everyone in the government of Roswell, N.M. believes in UFOs or aliens?
