Bill Stephens Takes On Big Foot?

Ok, ok, some may think this is a joke, but something major has happened here. All the deer that have made this place their home for the past 5 years are just suddenly GONE. Not because they moved, or due to the season or hunting or anything of the sort. THAT much I am sure of. And if it was because of disease (like Blue Tongue) because I haven't seen any carcasses and there have been no vultures circling about.

So, I talk to a neighbor and he said the same thing happened to him, but worse...cattle had their necks broken, dead deer in a stack and 8" diameter trees are snapped off 12' off the ground, with 24" foot prints in the dirt that have 4 toes. The legendary Big Foot?

Well, in the morning I am grabbing my back up camera (and of course protection) and going out to see if whatever is out there is indeed a a 10' Big Foot.

What protection are you taking? Would be best to at least take your best garden shovel, if this thing is snapping trees that thick that high it might not be too happy to get its picture taken

this is the best time for you then. with your wildlife expertise, you have a camera, you can go hunt the elusive bigfoot, which is as it seems about 20ft tall? and into deer stacking. get out there take pictures of the evidence, that will vanish fast. get yourself a outdoor deer camera, see what you can get. find a deer and attach a gps tracker.

i doubt its bigfoot though, because he is kind to all animals and trees. i don't see them going after animals, this was never a thing. i've heard that they like long blurry strolls in the woods.

this could be the work of aliens. they have been known for doing some really weird things, this could be one of them.

I thought that you skeptics would make this into a laughing matter. The truth is that this thing has been seen and all my many deer have just vanished, and I need to know WHY.

Don't worry about what "protection" I might have Chance, cause when I am pissed, you don't want me on the same planet.

Big Foot, mountain lions, aliens...doesn't really matter cause you don't kill my beloved deer and live. If I do get pictures, it won't be of anything standing or running away.

Also, I have a Big Foot expert that will be here in two weeks. I will be gearing up here, and if I don't respond back, well you know I never made it back from the woods.

And Abbie, you shouldn't drink that much coffee anyway.

listen, when you talk crazy talk, and you have no evidence at all, you will get that reaction. like where is your plaster cast of the print? photo evidence of the size with a ruler. a stack of deer etc?

deer vanish, i looked it up and its a common issue. they look for new food, the climate can do it. maybe you have a hunter on the property, maybe santa is calling them in early, who knows.

if you have a big foot infestation, it won't matter how angry you are, i'm certain something that large can flatten you like a pancake.

but if you want to be believed you have to have real live evidence. pictures and video proof.

you have a big foot expert? let me guess, he sells shoes to basketball players.

big foot isn't real, or its so rare to even get a glimpse of one, that there is no such thing as a big foot expert. just like there are no experts in UFO's, ghosts etc.

exactly right. its myth, until there is proof.

get proof, then back up your proof, get on tv, and say what you saw. then go out and capture it. you can use your pet as bait. just place the deer out in the open, put a long rope loop around the deer. you'll be hiding behind the bush holding the other end of the rope. and when big foot comes, you'll pull the rope, catching big foot. and then you'll be finally known for something, people will talk about you and etc. and when your signing autographs, you can sell your art. in fact you can do a signing in that micro gallery your in.

Still laughing huh? Mike, my deer is DEAD and so are all the other deer around here. They pile up the deer and let them rot for a couple weeks before they eat them. This comes from experts who have studied them. That is what i am trying to find, but then I have to go into where they live to do that. Ok...I am wasting time and need to get out there.

 

Mike Savad

10 Days Ago

its like saying, my cat never came home.... i'm certain there are dragons in the forest.

my first thought is never - a mythical creature took the deer. a logical conclusion would be:

1. practical joke by teens
2. a bear
3. a lion?
4. OCD hunter

if you have a trail of destruction, and foot prints, leading into a direction, then you should easily be able to track the thing. find it and capture it. then rent it out to parties.

maybe its this guy's bigfoot:

he saw one eating pizza. not quite deer but very close.

he saw what was a man in a guille suit, turn into a mist then into a deer. so maybe that's what happened to your deer, they turned into people again? or they joined together into a large mecha. in any case there is a $10 million dollar prize if you prove they exists or at least there was one. the police there refused to do a DNA test on the bigfoot poop.



https://www.huffpost.com/entry/2013-a-big-year-for-bigfoot_n_4506124
its amazing how they shape shift in here, in fact if you look closely, you'll see each one is shape shifting at the moment they were photographed. its probably why they are so blurry looking.

Yes, people can become delirious when they spend so much time alone in the woods... listening to their generator.

But maybe this is the next generation of Aesop's Fables being written. One never knows.

Have you ever considered that it might be American Trolls Bill?

 

Doug Swanson

Good luck, in more ways than one, if you're planning to find one. I've been hearing unprovable claims about large furry humanoids all my life, but am also waiting for some good pictures that don't look faked. I, for one, hope that the skunk ape lives. I also hope that it lives NOT in my backyard. Stacks of dead deer would complicate my life.

For what it's worth, trees "snapped" could be due to beavers (chewed more than snapped, but close to the ground) and, in my neck of the woods, there are occasional reports of mountain lions, vigorously denied by wildlife authorities, that could rip out pieces of large grazing animals. That's significant because the area where they've been seen is closely adjacent to large suburbs and, if the report were widely perceived to be true, panicky suburbanites would probably want them exterminated or at least relocated. So far, neither dogs nor kids have been eaten and all the reports are unverifiable.

 

Peggy Collins

Maybe your neighbor was pulling your leg, Bill. I have it on good authority that Bigfoot is a vegetarian.

But just in case, take a clothespeg for your nose because I hear that Bigfoot really stinks.

Seriously though, I hope your deer are ok.

broken trees can be a down burst in a storm or a strong wind. or it was rotten there and broke, or lightning. and anything else near that is just a coincidence.

if it was a creature, there would be a trail of evidence. broken branches, compressed grass, imprints, poop (everything poops) though you will need a large bag to put it back in, there would be a trail.

if it was a storm, there would be a smaller area of damage.

if there was a pile of deer there would be sign of trauma, bite marks, half missing, bullet holes etc. if i recall a lion (maybe wolf) will eat some of it, then hide the body to finish it later on.

Good time to start tracking Bill - in just a short bit of time the leaves will be falling , with less places to hide.

Now wouldn't that be something... if our Mr. Bill finally settles the age old question of Big foot.
Just capturing in image would be great - but I don't think you will settle for that Bill.

For the record - I believe in.... well, something.

Our old neighborhood on the Schunemunk mountain had some interesting events... and quite a few to share a story or two.

Best Wishes.

Ok, I am back. And Janine is right, forget photography. It was bad enough with a pistol going through the jungle here, and I dropped that in the water TWICE. People have NO IDEA what it is like where I live. Several THOUSAND ACRES of crazy forest where I live that almost never see a human. The perfect place for a Big Foot.

I didn't find anything on this outing, but I did come back with about 200 yards of spider webs in my face.

Abbie, I am sorry I resulted in the loss of some of your coffee due to my first post. I know you like to drink a lot of coffee. I was at work and saw a post here one time that made me spit out whatever I was drinking, probably an energy drink.

Bill, glad to see you back. Sounds like quite the adventure.

We need Bigfoot and all the other legends and monsters, real or imagined. I think there is something in the human makeup that craves this type of mystery. That said I doubt if Bigfoot and all the other monsters, real or imagined need us.

1. big foot is not real, not proven, and you haven't seen any sign of big foot.
2. there are logical reasons why the deer are gone as others have had the same issues.
3. again big foot isn't real. i know you like to think that where you live, fantasy creatures exist and some how affect just you, but they don't because there isn't.
4. everything i pointed out is a true statement, you just like acting out the fantasies you have in your head. i'm reality, your living in it.
5. bill you don't know anything about me. heading off into the woods and getting hurt really fast shows me that you have no idea how to do anything in the woods, or that your clumsy. imagine if you lived in reality, real reality, you wouldn't be chasing aimlessly after fictional creatures, bleeding. you would be here on this forum talking about unicorns.

you only think its stupid, because i'm not talking gibberish about nonsense. now get a grip and face facts that i'm right and your not. all i can say is that your neighbor that put it in your head that a bigfoot ate your deer - is laughing is butt off.

the fact is, there are stories of all kinds of creatures, each one a little different. no real evidence has been brought forward. people in costumes wandering through the woods, people getting blurry images of them. they aren't real as far as i'm concerned. and if you wanted to prove it to us you would provide us with the so called evidence. the broken tree, the foot print you found with a ruler, the deer cam. yet you provide nothing.

to me you sound like a kid, that i just told santa doesn't exist. and the kid is thrashing about trying to give me almost logical arguments that he does exist. and they only reason they yell is that they hope he's real, they know he isn't. and who am i to pop the illusion and bring them back into reality? i'll tell you who, i'm the blue bird of freaking reality, that's who.

there is a big difference in having a rich fantasy life and believing your fantasies are true.

the first one allows you to create a rich world, and make detailed books, like harry potter books.

but once you cross the line in thinking that a stick will let you wave magic powers, and your hold up a rock and expect it to have powers. or start tapping bricks and expecting it to hold up, or you see an invisible creature etc... that is when you need medication.

you want to marry the bigfoot right? i was right all along?

or was the thread going to meander into you marrying the bigfoot expert which happened to be a single (well the odd are she would be single if she were a bigfoot expert), and you get married again, to hunt together. is that where this story was going? because you know you will never find a bigfoot right? its not a thing.

and yes, i was talking to your mother... and she said some "things" about you... just wow.

To start with behind most legends there is some trace of reality. Case in point the lock ness monster. Water was tested in several locations for DNA... results no reptilian DNA, however what was quite abundant was eel DNA. Sounds as if Nessie is a giant eel. Big foot sightings correlate rather closely to bear population. Does this mean that Big Foot is a bear? No it does not but the possibility of mistaken identity is strong. As I said earlier Monsters don’t need us but we need them.

in any case, you can go out and look for the thing if you want. i would not shoot at anything until you know its a bigfoot. otherwise it will be a human, some other animal or a log full of bees.

the chances of it being a bear is very high. and bears do eat deer, some may drag it some place.

the chances that they left because it might be a bad winter and they some how know. and they are stuffing themselves, that is a very good chance.

the chances that a hunter has been silently shooting the deer with arrows and dragging it back home, that's possible.

the chances that a ufo took them, sure why not, in the realm of possibility, that they may be expanding in what 4 legged animals they take, sure why not.

but big foot? does he/she even eat meat? other than jerky?

Mike thank you for giving me your PERMISSION to go out and do what I need to do. If I do happen to get a Big Foot head, where do you want me to mail it? It may not fit into your mailbox.

If I find out it was Aliens, I will make them PAY by making them promise to get you on their way out of the Solar System. But remember to take your camera. Just think of the pictures you could put on FFA.

Bill,

I find it curious about the timing of this thread and release of the following film

From the press release:

"The latest title to crawl forth from the production powerhouse behind last year’s best-selling documentary ON THE TRAIL OF BIGFOOT, MOMO: THE MISSOURI MONSTER. is set for a fall release. A midnight premiere is scheduled at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington, Kentucky on Friday, September 6th with cast and crew in attendance. The premiere will coincide with Cryptid-Con, a cryptozoology and paranormal convention celebrating its third year and featuring a number of renowned authors, television personalities, and speakers.”

Ronald - The Loch Ness monster is NOT a big eel. There might be big eels in Loch Ness but eels are not monsters, just good eating. Monsters, on the other hand, may be legend or may be real. Like Bigfoot, after so many centuries of stories that keep growing, it's time for some physical evidence.

In my part of the world, we have numerous sightings of the Snallygaster, some Bigfoot sightings and nearby West Virginia's "well documented" Mothman, hundreds of reports, but no convincing physical evidence. I have a local attachment to Mothman, so I'm assuming that it is real. I'd prefer to not see him, however, since sightings portend some sort of disaster.

Snallygaster is a large, bird-lizard, seen in Maryland occasionally since the 1700's. It "has" (if true) a thirty foot wingspan and a very bad disposition.

Mothman is not quite so large, 15 foot wingspread, looking nothing like a moth, but with a humanoid body, big red eyes and a hypnotic gaze. Numerous sightings in West Virginia preceded the collapse of the Silver Bridge in 1967 (that part's true). And, Richard Gere starred in the movie version, so that proves it.

If you really want to binge on this stuff just go to - https://mysteriousuniverse.org You can also read about the 2100 year old iPhone found in the Russian version of Atlantis.

Personally, I'm more of a skeptic than a disbeliever, but it's been a long wait for evidence.

 

Mike Savad

7 Days Ago

maybe the snallygaster took the deer. it would make sense too, a large thing could have hit the tree. took the deer without a trace and no sound. it could have sat on the ground, and made an impression that looked like a foot.

i think every area has its own unique brand of weird monster. i think it just gives people something to do when walking around in the woods. sort of a way to keep their eyes looking. i personally look for photographic interest like an owl or something.

i need consistent evidence. and so far i haven't seen anything but loose sketches, drunk stories and blurry photos.
