Re: bigfoot


Having learned to fly (airplanes) in Alaska, I eventually spent thousands of hours viewing Alaska from the air. In winter, I followed wolf packs for literally hundreds of miles. The tracks are visible as well as the blood stained snow where they made successful kills. The only other animals that are seen are cats and Moose with exceptions of Caribou, and Bison within their winter range.

Tens of thousands of winter travellers scurry all over Alaska in the winter on skis and snow machines...

Why no Bigfoot tracks! None! Nada!

I don't know how many bear snares are set in the summer in Alaska. I expect thousands of snares on the many trap lines - mainly in the spring.

No Bigfoot has ever been snared. :confused:

The reason children whistle in the dark is because they hear tales and are unable to rationalize that ghosts and other imaginary things don't really exist.

They only exist in people's imaginary mind. The human mind is a great pace to imagine anything you can conceive. Stories stimulate the imaginary mind. We can only imagine what was scratching on the tent wall because we couldn't see it. Nobody really saw anything! Was it a big hairy beast? Why, yes, of course!

Re: bigfoot

Well, G Wiz,

That is exactly why actual sightings are of interest to miners.

To put small aircraft sightings in perspective - under 2,000' or even 1000' AGL and in the winter (you know, 1/2 the year), it is easy to miss many, many tracks - especially in tree cover. You mention moose, bear and the other "critters" - well, just remember they are NOT cognitive

Hunters, Trappers and other wilderness travelers could well be recognized and evaded by cognitive "critters".

It seems that taken from a neutral, open minded perspective the results could be very different from your assumptions, based on you flying your airplane.

Re: bigfoot


From the perspective of bush pilots flying all over Alaska - all year round, and considering the size of a hypothetical Bigfoot, they would be spotted regularly. Bear are highly visible from the air - both black and brown bear. Winter provides an excellent opportunity to see tracks - no tracks in winter. Fish and game goes out and they do population counts from the air. Never heard of a Bigfoot being spotted.

It's kind of like "no-see-em" gold. There are many stories (tales) about gold mines. "Believe me, the gold is there!" You just can't see it! :smile:

Re: bigfoot


A couple of purely objective questions;

Sign... Every thing that eats leaves a depoit in the form of droppings. Ever come across any Bigfoot droppings?

Food... What does bigfoot eat? Berries? Fish? Ever hear about a fresh Bigfoot kill and see the remnants of an animal killed by a Bigfoot? If they are vegetarian, what do they eat in winter? Do they store food somewhere? If so, where? Ever seen a Bigfoot camp? Where do they live?

Do they die? Never have I seen skeletal remains of a Bigfoot. I have seen skeletal remains of dinasaurs, prehistoric fish, prehistoric birds, etc. No skeletal remains of a Bigfoot. :confused:

Re: bigfoot


Dear Beautiful Lady, Thank you, for your kind words and request,
As to your concerns of “ us or this ” being a little off subject, with all respect I would suggest humour and fun are the “ stress relief “ part of mining, and directly related, “ Yes,life is fun!”,
In Hindsight after ? my years of learning on this forum, I cannot recall seeing a topic that I have considered “ un-interesting “ , some take a little time to warm up, and or a few posts to get interesting and informative, but they always do, ( Not including matters of state or country Law, ect ,) If you know what I mean, I know the past and present Administrators are watching. And doing an excellent job,
So, 2 other fury critters that do pose a problem for the newbie coming to Auss,
1, the Australian Platypus, a cute but shy little?? critter, the female being totally harmless except she will give a good scratch, Babies are fun to watch cause they are just so happy to be alive, but the male is the one to watch, ( please note, Platypus live in and on rivers, and so do dredgers and fisherman, ) so please be aware that a newbie fisherman could accidently hook or find a platy entangled or trapped in a dredge, please be aware that the male has poisonous spurs in his back legs, there have been reports that when fisherman accidently hook a platy, and try and remove the hook by holding him gently with his boot, these reports say that the male platy drives his spurs into the leg above the boot, resulting in terrible pain, and massive swelling for 3-6 months, resulting in their leg changing into a swollen petrified stump forever, strange and scary but please do not let it happen to you, if you come to Auss,
2, is the Koala Bear, newbie’s may only know them as cute and cuddly, common sense will tell you that they can and will rip skin off you like they do bark off a tree, if you scare a Koala in the wild and try to cuddle it, but there is another side to them, because the Australian Koala bear lives on and only eats Eucalyptus leaves, which gives them the appearance of sleeping, while actually being intoxicated, sometimes they lose their grip high up in a tree, and become dangerous and known as and called “ drop Bears “, Meaning a drunk bear falling out of a tree, 40-80 ft, now it is important that a newbie coming to Auss understand what some words mean, for example, in the Auss bush if someone yells,
Run up a tree, means a water buffalo, or a seven foot kangaroo or a big emu is going get you,
Drop Bear, means cover your head, and move away from under any eucalyptus trees,
Run, could mean a big goanna that can climb trees as well,
Don’t move, means poisonous snake, or someone is about to squash a bug or some critter on your back,
Look out, means mine shaft,
Ect, ect,
Another frustration in my life in the Auss bush has been wondering if I am a kook, because of a Australian bush bird, a very frustrating bird, belonging to the kook species, on many different occasions, they have done it to me,
One time I was driving back to the camp, and I thought I could feel I was getting a flat tyre, so I quickly stopped hoping to see a tyre was not yet flat, and I could make it back to the camp, instead i find the tyre is totally flat, and right at that moment of feeling I have bad luck, when I am thinking I was too far from the camp to get the big jack, right at that moment With a fright all I can hear is a really loud laughing, very loud, and I know when I turn around, and look at that stupid bird, he will be looking at me, eye to eye, laughing directly at me, , you can see it in his mind he is thinking Haha you got a flat tyre, and I am going to sit here and look and laugh at you until you change it,
Many times after a hard days dredging, and I am panning out, and again, with such loudness and surprise they start laughing at me, even if the gold is good, they laugh at you to make you think or wonder if the gold was better in front or behind the hole, and even wonder if they know where the gold is,?.
I hate it when they catch me buck naked having a wash in some secluded spot, away from all other eyes, mans things shrivel and shrink in cold water,, but they come and laugh anyway,
Also it is fruitless to yell at them, “don’t laugh at me “, cause they laugh harder cause you think, they speak English, and you think they understand what u are saying,
On the upside, Kook- aburra’s eat poisonous snakes, unfortunately they are not really eatable, and some of them are smart enough to sit just out of rock throwing range, some are not,
Gotta run, hope ya have a smile on ya pretty dial, xxxxxxxx.

Re: bigfoot

The belief in Bigfoot can be partly explained by the need of people who like to think or wish that there is still a wildness or mystery in the natural world- not every corner of the world has been discovered, analyzed, explained, and categorized. It is kind of like belief in Santa Claus-pretty hard to prove by scientific methods.

G-day Mygrain.

Next morning I woke up with a fright, the noise of screaming black birds was so loud, it drowned out any and all other noises, I thought there must be hundreds attacking, (or at least forty,) I pictured in my mind, they were big, black and shiny big beaks, really big black long claws,

:smile:


Hi Dredger
The story of the tent and the birds got me remembering about a time I had the wife and kids camping at the local lake. A group camping beside us partied most of the night away and kept all of the campground awake with the music and hollering. After they finally quit and went to bed in their cabin trailer camper, I noticed a fellow camper throwing something on their roof.
The next morning at daylight, most everyone was woken up by all the crows and ravens on top of this camper, digging and pecking and generally making quite a racket. The partiers too had to get up, hangovers and all, and everyone had a good laugh at them.
I asked the guy what he had thrown on their roof and he told me " all the wieners I had in my cooler." :devil:

Re: bigfoot


This thread reminds me of the newspaper report here in Oregon several years ago of the young men who saw a Sasquatch in the woods and even fired shots at it. They then reported the incident to the authorities. I think the sheriff's department accompanied the guys back to the site to ascertain what mayhem may have occurred. It was found they had seen and fired at a stump or snag. Maybe says something about some eyewitness accounts.

Re: bigfoot

I have a real bigfoot story, but it's short and not really big ... size 8M.
Seriously, I am retired USFS and we had a bunch of bigfoot enthusiasts camp on our National Forest. They had a good time and generated stories, but no one saw anything. They said they heard sounds that may have been bigfoot!
I used to work for the BLM as a firefighter in Alaska and spend four summers there, three of which were out "in the bush", camping and fighting fire. I saw a bunch of bears and fellow-firefighers, but never saw or heard bigfoot, sasquatch or whatever other name you want to call him (or her?).
Good luck, but I don't take such stories seriously.

Re: bigfoot

I have been nose to nose with a bear (see the details here: http://goldnalaska.com/Stories/Mining_Fish.htm ) but I've never seen bigfoot. Though I have seen "Illie" the Iliamna Lake monster. I was out in a small boat and the thing swam under it.

In the thirty some summers I have spent roaming the Alaska bush I have never come across a dead bear or it's skeletal remains. I have seen what I thought was bear poop but it could have been from Bigfoot. While flying around Alaska I have seen bears but I'm sure there were lots more bears and other creatures that I did not see.

I've never seen god (I did see Jesus in that bright white light...) but that doesn't mean she doesn't exist.

Re: bigfoot

Walt,

Stick with me a moment...

Because you haven't seen a dead bear doesn't mean they don't exist.

I have seen lots and lots of bear poop! I get down and sniff it. If it smells like pepper spray, I know it's bear poop. :gonetoofar:

Re: bigfoot

Dick,

There was such a big pile on the road near my cabin, folks were driving around it! They didn't want to get bear scat all over their 4-wheelers!

I got my shovel and moved it. Anyway, that was a foot tall stack of scat. No bells in it. :gonetoofar:
