hi, you sound to be about my age and experienced the same early interest i had in bigfoot. just like you, i sit here scratching my head when i hear a story about bf in lets say kansas or ohio or even my native new mexico. it just doesnt make any sense at all. its like people who want to believe, and cant or dont have access to the area where bigfoot actually is, have brought bf to them. i dont know if you have ever been to the pacific nw, but the ecology there is unique to north america and nothing like central texas. just like there are no grizzly bears in alabama, salmon running in the mississippi. caribou in arizona, aligators in maine, moose in florida, lobsters in iowa, likewise, bigfoot cant be evertwhere. i have no doubt bigfoot is a real animal.but, i believe it is confined to its range where it has the resources to survive and thrive. hope i dont sound like im trolling. its just an opinion.

two oldtimers

Post  jerrywayne on Sat Aug 11, 2012 10:22 pm

I agree, oldtimer. If only I knew when I was a teen that Bigfoot lived down the road I would have had fun searching for (if not finding) it. Instead, I dreamt of the time when I could go to Bluff Creek or Harrison Springs and search. But life intervened after my schooling and I was drafted and spent almost a year in Vietnam. (Funny, too, I not only did I not know Bigfoot lived in Texas, but I didn't know the Minnesota Iceman was from Vietnam!)

Later I saw "Legend of Boggy Creek," but no one was connecting it to Bigfoot. Crabtree thought it was a hybrid loner and I believe his brother thought it was a hermit.

I guess the difference between your view and mine is this: eyewitness reports of Bigfoot in Texas and other unlikely places are on the same plane as reports as those of the Pacific Northwest. If such evidence is similar here to evidence in the PNW, then the PNW evidence is not unique. The similarities do not give credence to the Ubiquitous Bigfoot, though; (for me) it instead discredits the PNW phenomena, leaving nothing really "real."

Since I am a life long Texan and have had family and friends from Oklahoma, I can say that Bigfoot as a part of our fauna is a very new notion. If I had the money and time, I would go around various spots not looking for Bigfoot but looking for explanations as to why the Bigfoot story suddenly erupted in places previously absent such lore. I'm betting some unsubstantiated sighting perhaps linked to media presentations of Bigfoot lore might be origin back story. This with a willing Native American accomplice in lore-making might be an answer. In the PNW I think the father of Bigfoot is John Green. He first linked aboriginal tales of a giant Indian tribe of "sasquatch" to the then current interest in the proposed ape Yeti of the Himalayas to give us what in California became "Bigfoot." or "America's Abominable Snowman." Anyway, that is MHO.

Hello Jerrywayne,

I also grew up in the DFW area. Mansfield, Texas to be exact. I grew up believing Bigfoot because both my mother, aunt and grandmother encountered a similar creature in Missouri. I later had my own possible encounter while serving in the Army at Ft. Lewis while on a detail guarding the AHA. I never saw the creature it's self, but it was screaming and screeching and whooping just on the other side of the fence within the woodline and I could easily hear it's footsteps as it walked back and fourth.

At the time, I did not think "Bigfoot" My first thought was that my Platoon Sgt was checking up on me and the other guy and testing us. But then that thought faded as we were both armed and if I went by the book "Halt who goes there", followed by a warning shot followed by "Shoot to maim", it did not seem likely that this was my platoon Sgt or for that matter any other soldier lest they were incredibly stupid. But then the noises it was making did not quite sound human either, so I chalked it up as some large Owl that was hunting on the ground.

It was not until later that I heard a supposed Bigfoot audio clip called "The Puyallup Screamer" and realized that this was exactly what I heard. When I played this clip for my mother, she told me the sound the thing she saw, was not even close.

So my standpoint is that yes I do believe that there are similar creatures throughout the U.S. and Canada. But I do not think they are all the same things. The descriptions are different as are the supposed behavior.

Like the PNW (Where I now reside.) Texas has also had it's fair share of pre-Bigfoot reports. By "Pre-Bigfoot" I am referring to reports made before the term "Bigfoot" ever entered the English Language. Midlothian, Texas which is just East of Mansfield, and South of Duncanville had reports back in the 50's

Possum Kingdom Lake has had a long History of reports over in Palo Pinto County and so has Hunt County near Greenville and all through East Texas as well as "The wild man of Navidad" from South Texas back in the mid 1800's.

If we were talking about the same Hominid, then I would agree with you that it is far-fetched. But "Bigfoot" has become a generic term for every hairy-biped report in the U.S.

P.S. Hello everyone Smile

Sincerely,
Heath

Thank goodness for this forum. I am a believer. It is nice to know you all are out there to bounce ideas off of.

I have this terrible fear of woods after dark, when at our family's house in Trinity county, I do get anxiety attacks, won't sit near windows after dark etc.. I hope discussing the big guy will make it less of a monster and more of a "friend" so to speak.

Thanks for having this forum. elephant

Sasquatch enjoy people's leftovers

Post  sasquatch sue on Wed Oct 17, 2012 7:19 am

Outside the world of hunting game and gathering berries, etc., sasquatch have learned to avail themselves of the tremendous amount of leftovers to be found in dumpsters, plastic garbage sacks and open dump sites. I would guess that these are females, searching at night under the cover of darkness. Some towns and cities are laced with creeks and gullies that permit travel in the tree line to avoid being seen. While I think it is rather doubtful that sasquatch live close to town, they can travel fast to get there and, almost as fast to leave being burdened by a bellyful of pizza. One female was caught on surveillance camera as she examined the contents of a dumpster behind a casino after closing. I, myself, have seen garbage shrewn about after, presumably a sasquatch, walked across a field examining and discarding the contents of a garbage sack. A sasquatch was subsequently seen on this property. I found footprints behind the house and a pile of plum pits near the fence and interviewed the witness thoroughly. He had goosebumps as he described seeing the sasquatch.
