    He can photograph a Bigfoot hand but not bring it back so somebody can look at it?

    Remember the Tibetan Yeti parts? Sometimes you get the hand, sometimes you just get the finger.

    Bigfoot researcher: Woman chased by Bigfoot in Hyde Park

    A researcher says a woman was chased by Bigfoot in the Hudson Valley. Gayle Baetty, the Hudson Valley's lead researcher of Bigfoot, says a woman told her she had a violent encounter with the mysterious creature on July 2nd in Hyde Park.

    "The creature jumped up in the tree above her and branches and leaves started falling on her and then the creature started to move from tree to tree,” said Baetty. Baetty's team and others have photos of large footprints found in parts of the Hudson Valley - large hairy figures in the distance and videos capturing this mysterious sound.

    HOLY FREAKIN COW !!!!

    I GREW UP in Hyde Park and live just a few miles away. Used to ride my bike there all the time before cell phones made that a near death experience. We were literally just talking about taking our dog up to Vanderbilts.

    I have to figure out who this woman is, what this group is. Jesus, maybe they'll have need of a volunteer investigator. Is the Universe speaking to me?

    Do I really think there's a Bigfoot around? Well, no not really. But New York truly does have some remote, isolated howling wilderness so who the hell knows.

    This is cool!

    EDIT - OK, now that the surprise has worn off I realize there's a better chance than not that this group is a bit, shall we say, Bohemian. But I'll still look into it. I went on a few ghost hunts for fun out of curiosity. I'd be happy to go look for hair and poop out in the woods of my old home town. If it works out this is the point in life I trade in the traditional old-guy ball cap for the bush hat or fedora ? It happens to a lot of men in their 50s and I never understood why. Maybe its a rite of passage.

    My wife has a Facebook account so I had a look. The Bigfoot Researchers of the Hudson Valley has pictures of blobs and bears. Oh well, got my pulse going a bit. Bears will too just not for the same reasons.

    I used to hunt up near Stissing Mountain, very close to this lady's home. Gave up hunting on public land (and anywhere else) after a close encounter of the bad kind with a bunch of citified idiots with guns not being careful.

    I've spent my fair share of time out in the woods and think that as sparsely populated as it is up north there's still plenty of civilization around. If there were so many of these creatures on the continent that they are here getting into dumpsters and so forth, that the population would be large enough so that statistically we would have evidence of one.

    Only disturbing encounter of note for me was with a perfectly identifiable animal. I was whizzing down a dirt trail on my mountain bike going pretty fast when a deer stepped right out in front of me. I went by so fast and so close I could've wiped the boogers off her nose with my t-shirt.

    A past member here at AE spoke about his visit to a local UFO group and he was horrified. I suspect that might be the case here.

    I thought you would get excited about that report since its close to home lol, I'm the same way when I read bigfoot reports from Uwharrie national forest, 45 minutes from my home and a place I've camped at many times....I've intentionally camped in the same area of previous sightings hoping to see something for myself, even maybe get a pic but when I've been there nothing...

    I'm listening to the podcast series on the Patterson-Gimlin film, just over half way done with those...

    I've been poking around to see if I could find out exactly where this took place. I have heard several people snickering about it locally and that's probably why the location and identity of the person who saw it is kept quiet.

    What we definitely DO have around here in abundance is bears. I posted a pic of one here not too long ago that took up residence on my property for a day or two. I just got a warning email from my local gun club - the video surveillance revealed a black bear on one of the more ranges. I could walk there from here. Somebody left food garbage up there.

    I'd suggest caution before wandering out with a basket of Little Deb fruit pies for your favorite elusive hominid.

    Also- forgot about this. Not paranormal but cool. About 20 years ago they found a mastodon in somebody's pond. Haviland Rd. I went to Haviland jr. High School and know it well.

    2021 Ford Bronco Sasquatch Package Explained: Yes, You Can Get 35-Inch Tires on the Base Bronco
    Want a 2021 Ford Bronco with all the off-road fixin's? Opt for the Sasquatch package.

    upload_2020-8-1_7-16-30.png

    With its body-on-frame underpinnings, standard four-wheel drive, and torque-rich turbocharged engine, the base 2021 Ford Bronco is a formidable off-road machine right out of the box. But let's say you want even more off-road capability from the Blue Oval's new SUV while still staying within a budget outside, say, the higher-end 2021 Bronco Wildtrak. Enter the Sasquatch package.

    Available across the line—except on the Wildtrak, which comes standard with its goodies—the Sasquatch package turns even the entry-level, Bronco into an all-terrain monster. Credit for the transformation goes to 17-inch beadlock-compatible wheels wrapped in 35-inch mud tires, an electromechanical transfer case, locking front and rear axles, larger fender flares, additional suspension clearance, and heavy-duty Bilstein shocks. For better or worse, the package requires checking off the option box for the Bronco's 10-speed automatic transmission. Sorry, stick shift fans.

    The closest thing the 2020 Jeep Wrangler offers to a Sasquatch-equipped base Bronco is the Willys Sport trim, which adds 17-inch wheels wearing 32-inch mud tires, the shocks and rock rails from the more capable Rubicon trim, a limited-slip differential, and the Sahara and Rubicon models' beefier brake calipers and rotors to the entry-level Wrangler Sport.

    Admittedly, the Bronco's Sasquatch package and Wrangler Willys Sport are as much about go-anywhere style as the ability to actually go anywhere. After all, what's the purpose of driving Ford's reborn Bronco or Jeep's Wrangler if either model looks only slightly more capable than the average SUV? No surprise, then, that both sport black-painted wheels to further separate each from the herd. Additionally, Jeep fits its special Wrangler model with various black accents and kitschy decals, while Ford merely tacks on a set of wider fender flares over the Sasquatch-equipped Bronco's beefier tires.

    Until we have the chance to compare a base Bronco equipped with the Sasquatch package and a Wrangler Willys Sport, we can only declare buyers of these SUVs the real winners of this theoretical showdown. Ultimately we're fans of any automaker that sees fit to offer piles of true performance equipment on the most affordable trim of a given model—be they off-road-oriented rigs like the 2021 Bronco or Wrangler or more street- and track-friendly toys like the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger. Now we wait to see how much the Sasquatch gear will cost—watch this space, which we'll update just as soon as price for the package is available.

    States with the Most Bigfoot Sightings in 2020

    To prevent COVID-19 exposure, people are either staying inside or going out into nature to avoid the masses. And who knows more about hiding from the herd than Bigfoot?

    Some deny that Bigfoot is real, but with so many reported sightings, maybe he’s not only real but not alone. Could there be bigfoots all over the country? (Or is it bigfeet? It’s definitely not bigfeets—unless it’s used as a term of endearment. And if you’re that close to one of these hairy homies, let us know. We’ll hook them up with one of the best rural internet providers to help them stay in touch.).

    So, where do you think you can see one of these big beasts with your own two eyes? We dug into reports from The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization and compared it against state population data to see where people have the best chance of befriending a bigfoot.

    Where are you most likely to spot a bigfoot?

    Bigfoots love those forest areas, especially if there are some snow-capped mountains and fresh water sources nearby. If you’re hiking and camping in the wilderness, look for the orangutan-like giant roaming along treelines of dense forests or crossing empty highways.


    Untitled.png

    With over 676 sightings reported, Washington is by far your best bet to get a fuzzy photograph of our famous friend. The green state gets 8.9 sightings for every 100,000 people—those are pretty good odds.

    California reported 445 bigfoot sightings, which was the second-highest total, but with over 39.5 million people, your chances aren’t great. The hairy mammal is likely to avoid the bigger crowds seen on the coast, so stick to the northern woods of California if you’re bent on seeing the big creatures in this state.

    Bigfoots avoid high-density populations, so even if there are more sightings in a state, a larger population in any area might scare him away from sightseeing spots. You’ll want to check out the more desolate parts of the dense forests to see one yourself.


    So, where are you most likely to find the footprints if you’re roaming the country in your RV or taking a socially distanced road trip? Let’s compare the number of sightings against the state’s population to find the sweet spot where you’re most likely to spot bigfoots.

    Untitled.png

    Oregon jumps up to the number-two rank when you consider population, which makes the Pacific Northwest by far the best spot to see a sasquatch. You can also try your luck around the West Coast’s more mountainous forest areas, avoiding areas with high population density.

    If you live in one of these states, maybe you can help prove bigfoots exist from your own backyard. Just make sure you can stay connected with a mobile hotspot as you wander the woods trying to get footage and photos so you can keep your friends looped in.

    Where are you least likely to spot a bigfoot?

    Maybe it’s a bigfoot’s daunting size or their uncanny resemblance to humans that creeps you out, but if you’re looking to avoid the avid wanderer, stay in these states.

    Untitled.png

    No surprises with Nevada being a no-go for bigfoots—the desert landscape is too unlike their usual habitat of mountainous forests close to fresh water. But perhaps if you scour the land around Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Delaware with 100,000 people, you can end up with at least one sasquatch sighting.

    While there have been 113 bigfoot sightings in New York, we’re more inclined to think they’re all upstate. If you saw something resembling a strange and surreal sasquatch in New York City, it was probably just a street performer.

    If you’re hitting the woods to get it away from it all, be on the lookout for large and lonely creatures. With so many bigfoots being spotted across the country, we want you to let us or the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization know if you see anything sasquatch-related!

    (Oh, we’re also big fans of UFO sightings—so keep us looped in if you spot one of those too.)

    Methodology


    Using data reports from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, we compared the number of sightings against US Census state population data to find the number of sightings per 100,000 people.
