I have one question left....

If this were a Saturday in July of +20oC sunny weather, without being in the middle of a big snow storm....

would we all still be sitting here debating this topic?

Melissa :-?

Sure we would. We'd be sitting around a campfire at day's end though and having a few good laughs.

Here's an old thread, started in April 2005, took 3-year break, then was revived in July 2008...prime canoeing season, no?

Who else has seen Bigfoot?

Fortunately for me I was away all day today, doing something useful. So,I would have to agree with Melissa. If it was a nice sunny day I wouldn't be debating the existence or lack thereof of any hairy monsters.
Not sure if I would debate them if the winter camping season had started either or if there was enough snow around to go out CC skiing.

When someone drags one of them in kicking and screaming... then that is the time to get all excited about the hairy monsters.

Of course, if I ever have the good fortune to see one myself, I might feel differently.

In the meantime...
Amen.

Says he not like same old questions, when people pick fight with him, or think he some genie who answers prayers like leprechaun. Just want to be regular woodland creature, sharing views on life, love, peace on earth, and such like that.

The woods are filled with motion cameras put there by hunters, if there was one somebody would have caught it by now on one of those cameras.

Notice the way she keeps looking back and forth along the sides of the trail? She's probably thinking, "I know I've left my tutu somewhere around here."

Post subject:  Re: Sasquatch in Ontario?

Hi folks,
I registered just so I could post on this thread.

I am an independent Ontario Sasquatch Researcher since 2008 when I had my first incident.
That initial incident opened up a door to an enigma that has evaded us since being documented as early as Samuel De Champlain.

Eyewitness accounts from Military, Police, Doctors and other trained personnel are being documented on a continuing basis.
1000's of sightings can't all be misidentification.
There is evidence piling up year after year. Obviously the evidence is not enough to change most people's minds.

On October 25th 2008 I was given an opportunity of a lifetime.
I have left many details out as my post would be much too lengthy if I wrote everything I've experienced.

I have spent the last half dozen years photographing wildlife and building a portfolio of wildlife and nature images, 19 of which are listed on National Geographic's stock photo website.
In 2008 I was shown an area of previous activity where a 20" footprint had been found.
My life changed that day.
I've since learned how to locate and attract the attention of this species.
They are very real. I'm not a big betting man but would wager my life on this one.

It was 4:30pm. We'd been scouting for several hours an area of previous activity looking for evidence.
All of a sudden we hear what sounded just like a gorilla chest thump.
I knew instantly that something was very different with this sound.
We stopped immediately and listened intently.
It was a rapid thump 3 times. Short enough to only know if came from our right.
It was close. This was no Ruffed Grouse wing beat or similar tone. It had an immediate (this is not right) feel to it.
A few seconds passed when from our left no more than a couple hundred feet came the vocalization that changed my world.

A triple primate whoop call that filled the forest. The voice is booming. It's huge.
There's absolutely nothing else like it in our forests.
It sounded very human yet all animal. It sounded like a gargantuan creature.
It was very articulate in the pronunciation of the whoops.
It had a massive lung capacity. A very raspy and guttural tone.
Immediately after the call from our left came a large limb break on our right (where the chest thumps(?) came from).

My friend yelled out of shock. I just stood there dumbfounded.
I knew instantly what it was but it took me a couple days of denial before I accepted it.
I had a video camera in my hand. All I had to do was hit record after the initial chest thumps(?) but the shock of the whole incident left me unable to react quick enough.

I've thought many times about missing that piece of audio evidence.
I've heard many recordings of whoops but they've always been in the distance and high pitched.
This was very different. It was very close with a massive tone.
An educated guess would tell me that it was inquiring who was there.

This incident was initiated with a rock banged on a tree. Yes, simple.
A form of communication used by this species. Simple yet effective.
Did they think another of their species was entering their area and they were
inquiring who was there?

It's now been three years since my first encounter. How do I know what it was?
It was a no brainer. When a Sasquatch is near and vocalizes, you will know.
It's something that will leave a profound effect on you unlike anything you've ever experienced.

Since that first encounter I've spent the last 3 years on the adventure of a lifetime.
I've since had 4 class B encounters (class B meaning no visual) in two areas of activity.
I spent the first year in my initial area weekly, with an approach hearing the same chest thump tone the very next week.
Almost a year passed with me in the area every weekend hoping for another incident.
Well it happened again on October 10th 2009.
I have now had two vocal encounters with what I believe are the same pair.
The second time I heard both of them vocalize to each other with me in between again.
One was very close, the other maybe a hundred yards away at most.
I was alone that time. That one happened at 7am.
An educated guess told me that the one was warning the other one that I was in the area.

I know how this sounds and I know most will just dismiss it as b.s. That's fine.
I'm not here to speak with those who close their mind to the possibility that this species is in our forests.
In time the truth will reveal itself. Independent researchers like myself will bring out the truth. With today's technology and encroachment upon their habitat it's just a matter of time before someone finally gets the holy grail of footage.

I have learned a plethora of information regarding this species since my initial encounter. An incident gives up much information but leaves many more questions.
They're intelligent stealthy creatures that will approach you if you're lucky enough.

I've learned where to look and how to attract their attention. The rest is up to them.
You don't find Sasquatch. They find you.
It's all a matter of being in the right place at the right time, knowing how to attract them and what to listen for.

There's a small handful of Ontario researchers like myself. Most are in organizations but a few of us go it alone or with other independents.

Some of you may have had experiences that you can't explain while camping or hunting, fishing etc.
You may be very hesitant in talking openly about it. Completely understandable.
I'm very open about my experiences only because I've heard them vocalize up close and the question about their existence has been personally answered.
I now spend much free time searching for evidence and pushing for that next encounter.
My experiences have taught me that it's only a matter of time before I get my first visual. I've already lost several opportunities because of my own personal denial.

I completely understand that this is a hard story to swallow.
I wouldn't believe it myself if it didn't happen to me.

As far as the question about where's the bones?
This is an excerpt from the BFRO website.

"Nobody Looks for Bigfoot Remains

No serious work has ever been done to look for remains of surviving wood apes in areas where they are rumored to reside. No one should expect remains of such an elusive species to be found, collected and identified without some effort.

Very few remains of ancient wood apes have ever been found in Asia, where they were much more abundant. Millions of gigantos (a branch of the wood ape line) lived and died in Asia over the ages. All the remaining physical evidence we have of them could fit into a few shoe boxes. Fossils of any land animal are very rare.

Remains do not become fossilized very often, but unless that happens, all the remains will, in time, become completely reabsorbed into the ecosystem. There would be remains of animals everywhere if remains were not naturally recycled, including bones and teeth.

Fossils or preserved bones of wood apes may exist in the Americas, but they will be exceedingly rare, because these animals are rare to begin with, and only a tiny fraction of that population will die in locations and soils that will preserve bones somehow. Odds are slim at best that any bones (which are normally fragmentary) will be found, collected and identified unless a focused effort is made to look for them. Until efforts are made in many places, over a long period of time, no one should be scratching their head wondering why "we" don't have any physical remains."

I will gladly answer any questions to the best of my ability if anyone wishes to ask.
You can send me a private message or even send me a personal email if preferred.
mpaterson67@yahoo.ca

Some of you may have had a questionable experience and would like some answers.
I may be able to help.

I understand that with this subject comes much ridicule.
If you have nothing nice to say then please have the decency to keep it to yourself.
You're in for a big surprise one day.

I'm in southern ontario and would gladly be of assistance to any who may have questions or experiences. Thanks for listening.

I'd advise you to hang your food to keep it from the Black Bears :D

Sasquatch will approach campsites but almost always stay out of sight.
If they're in the area they may do several things to deter your stay if you're encroaching on their territory.
They may shake trees, break limbs, scream, growl, throw rocks/sticks although it's very rare that they hit someone. There is a recent report posted of someone getting hit hard on the hand with a rock. First one I've read. It's a class B report. No visual.

http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=29355

I really don't think anyone has anything to worry about.
I'm not reading reports about attacks on humans.

I'll actually be camping one last time for the year this weekend in an area where we've had previous activity.
There's been no blatant encounters this year so I'm hoping for an exciting weekend.
There's been many strange instances at this location which was given to me by a Hunter from Windsor.
He was a non believer until he had his own instances.
