Bob Gimlin as Special Guest at 2009 Texas Bigfoot Conference

Special Announcement

The TBRC is delighted to announce the guest appearance at the 2009 Texas Bigfoot Conference of a legendary and distinguished figure: Bob Gimlin of Yakima,WA.

In 1967 Mr. Gimlin and his field partner, Roger Patterson, filmed what may have been a female sasquatch walking along Bluff Creek, located in the Six Rivers National Forest of Northern California. The unprecedented film has been the subject of much controversy as well as intense worldwide scrutiny for more than forty years. Despite having its authenticity challenged repeatedly, no one has been able to cogently demonstrate that the film is illegitimate.

Do not miss out on this singularly rare opportunity to meet this historically significant and extraordinary gentleman.

Here is my picture with Bob Gimlin taken last month Beachfoot 2009.

Possible Footprint Found

Our friend Cliff Barackman of Portland, Oregon has been contacted to investigate a possible print.

The photo of the print was taken on Sept. 9 on private property. This area also had a curious rock throwing incident last year!

Good luck Cliff!

Here is a link to the breaking news, and to Cliff's blog page.

This is the audio that I recorded on July 18, 2008 at Salt Fork State Park.

The time was around midnight and we had been camped out since 8:30 pm.

No one passed through the entire area in the 4 hours prior to the recording.

Weekend Re-cap

It is fashionable to Squatch after Labor Day!

My friends from the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society were out this past weekend and had some exciting activity!

With the Kentucky "Bigfoot" image and the activity in Pennsylvania, I'd say things are heating up here in the eastern United States!

Attached is a brief run down of what the guys encountered while squatching this past weekend:

Hi Sharon,
Well you missed the best night we've had in the woods at *****! Dave and I definitely had activity! We arrived around 2pm and did quite a bit of hiking to check out other locations for future night investigations! During our day investigating we came across one area that had an abundance of tree stackings and even what I must say looked like a possible shelter...the intertwined trees were definitely not natural, but to say a creature did it...well! We also hiked down the trail perpendicular to ****. At the end of the trail is an open meadow with a scattering of pine trees! Dave and I found the tops of 3 of the 6ft saplings bent/twisted...definitely looked out of place!

We decided to relocate down this trail for our night investigation. The conditions were perfect....full moon, no wind, and around 60 degs! Shortly after darkness set in, the activity started. Dave and I both heard a distinct double tree knock deep in the woods across from where we were sitting. Within a couple of minutes another distant single tree knock directly to our side, then the rock throwing started. Of course we took into account that the acorns are full size and now make a louder thump when they hit the ground, but these rocks were much louder and we could hear them coming through the tree tops like we heard when you were there. I'd say that roughly a dozen or more rocks were thrown from 4 directions during the 5 hours we were in the woods, with the last one sounding like it could have been as large as a 15 lb bowling ball! I'm not exaggerating! In fact it startled poor Dave so bad, who had his back to the sound, that he literally leaped out the chair and went into a commando stance....because he told me that he thought it was something heavy running toward us. Since I happened to already be standing and facing this direction, I didn't jump but I did feel a tingle go up my spine! The thud this rock made was extremely loud. It landed within 20ft behind us and both Dave and I thought it must have been thrown by something standing close to us, since we never heard any leaves or limbs being hit....but we never saw any movement or heard anything walking in the woods afterwards. About an hour before that large stone was thrown we did both hear what sounded like something breaking or stepping on a large tree limb from our right side, creating a loud snapping noise! I'd safely guess we heard a minimum of two dozen single or double tree knocks and also heard what sounded like two short, muffled, gutteral grunts or barks....sort of a gruuur noise! All I can say is that the activity kept Dave and me alert! Unfortunately we didn't see any shadows or movement, or hear any distinct vocalizations. So overall it was an exciting night!

I love hearing about the night activity! Also, pictures of the evidence found during the day would be nice to see too!

Great job guys and keep up the good work!

Backyard Bigfoot?

CNN video of the Kentucky Bigfoot game camera photo posted earlier today at: Bigfoot Caught on Game Camera in Kentucky?

What do you think? Is it Bigfoot?

Bigfoot Caught on Game Camera in Kentucky?

Some wonder if mysterious image in picture is BigFoot

FAIRDALE, KY (WAVE) - Conspiracy theorists have tried to prove the possibility of aliens, sea monsters, and even shape shifters, now there is a mystery in Jefferson County. Kenny Mahoney, born and raised in Fairdale, snapped a picture of what some people are calling BigFoot.

Kenny Mahoney

His hunting camera, which is operated by a motion detector, normally picks up rabbits, deer and turkeys, but on September 1 around 2:15 p.m. it picked up a strange image that looks like some sort of large black creature, one Mahoney estimates taller than he.

"It looked like it had the outline of a head, and like gorilla type shoulders, and then the arms crossed is what it looks like to me," said Mahoney.

Mahoney said it would be very hard for him to believe Big Foot is living in his backyard, but is stumped as to what else it could be.

"One of the explanations my brother-in-law said it may be a garbage bag blowed up in there, but all the smashed over vegetation in there-I really don't know," said Mahoney. "I have no idea what it is."

Mahoney's wife Margaret sent the photo to a wildlife expert who specializes in black bears. She said it looks like it is fur and not a trash bag, but still cannot confirm it is a bear.
