The trail cam shows how in mid-summer the area filled in with water. You still see deer moving around. Now, wading birds have moved into area. Lots of food for a Sasquatch to live off. Reconyx corporation says "See what you've been missing. Getting these images that time of year...
Tim and Kevin very happy to find trail cam A We headed out yesterday on the first real cold day of the year in Florida to retrieve two Reconyx RC60 covert trail cams. We had deployed them in areas where we knew there was an abundance of wildlife. We were...
In the above image you see its clear in front of the camera. Suddenly, something moves in front of the camera mounted 5 feet off the ground (look below). Something now blocks the screen. It was gone in the next frame. This is trail cam number one and it has...
We have found a permanent home for the ReconyxRC60 covert trail cam in an abundant wildlife area. My plan is to use this area for the next five years and see what we get. Everything is out here and I don't want to waste any time getting it set up...
The test deployment of the trail cams shows we have hit the mother load. Tons of deer showed up everyday on the camera. I have never seen an area do that. Often you can go a week for something to move. Look at this mother with her baby...How cute! (NOTE:...
On two occasions I have had a doe walk right in front of the Reconyx RC60 game cam and then look direrctly into the camera. They seem to know its there. Other animals don't respond, pigs, coyotes and large deer pay it no attention. Does Bigfoot? You can see her...
Piebald pigs are fairly rare according to the hunting websites. The reason is they are easy to see and fall to predators. This is the second Piebald pig our Reconyx RC60 trail cams have photographed (that's right Phil Polling, the media card can hold 14,000 images). We did not get...
It seems somebody has a sense of humor. A large plaster replica of a mule deer was cable locked to a tree in a wild life area. In all the years I have been doing this, I have never seen anything like this. It really scared me for I was not expecting it, or something this large. Just goes to show you won't find anything if you don't get out into the woods.
The area we call Florvanic is known for nature and Bigfoot. I went out today, and focused on an area near an old hunting cabin.Long before the interstate were built, this place was remote as hell. There are more animal trails and prints in here than I have seen anywhere. As the weathr get coolder, our group will be focused on thi place, and the surrounding areas. Something strange is going on in here.
I fond this long row of ten foot poles from back in the day near the hunting cabin. What purpose was this? What animal could scale this if it was some kind of enclosure?
The Fate of the Bigfoot world hangs in the balance as Tim Fasano has gone underground for a few months. Tim has been swimming and taking care of his health. Many of don't know that I almost died a few months ago. My blood pressure was dangerously high and I turned to what I know to correct the situation.
Swimming is the best aerobic exercise you can do. It burns more calories than Texas Hold Um and has Hugh cardio benefits. I am enjoying what I'm doing right now. I may return to Bigfoot in October when the weather turns. Let ya know.
Kevin almost stepped on a pygmy rattlesnake. Those are the smaller version of the diamond back (we have those too). The problem is with all the heat we had this winter, the snakes never went dormant. We are just going to have to be extra careful until next winter when I hope we finally break this five-year heat snap. That is how long it's been since central Florida had a temp below freezing.
I was out looking for a good spot for the trail cam deployment. The area was rich with game trails, and one that was much wider than normal. What was strange was how the wide trail was parallel to the deer path. My belief is that its a Sasquatch trail and he is stalking game for ambush in this area. I found a decades old feeder from when hunting was allowed in here. This is proof that deer activity has been consistent for a long time.

The "Arial Platform Electronic Surveillance" Project Bigfoot has been launched. This is something we have been working on for a long time. The goal was to loft a craft high above the tree tops in the Green Swamp to look down and take video. In the future, we will outfit it with night vision and this will be a staple of what we do.

The two cameras that will go onto the platform
I helped out by documenting everything with extensive YouTube videos. I also went out and found firewood. I can help sometimes.
looking for some firewood
I consider myself to be very lucky to associate with a bunch of talented guys. Kevin is not shown here because he was shooting most of the images.
The Florida BFRO was unable to debunk a recent Skunk Ape sighting based on the facts of the evidence alone. So, they had no choice but to go after the witness personally to protect their power base. R. Monteith put together a Red Meat rhetoric response that would satisfy the taste of any famished troll. However, the post was full of inaccuracies and wild speculation and assumptions.
This was unethical, for it only involved the reporting of a mythical beast and the privacy of the witness should have been protected regardless of personal feeling. This is a tactic they have often used on enemies and people who may undermine their power base. They believe they are the governing body of all things Bigfoot. They are not.
It is becoming clear that these guys may have pulled something. But why roast them in public? That is only to feed the trolls. I know this first hand. Someone went so far as to run a criminal background investigation on me and post it on the web. I would not have been surprised if someone in your group did that. These kids did not want to be on the Finding Bigfoot TV show. They did not seek money or fame. The only reason people found out about them was because they were hounded. I really thought the BFRO protected the privacy of all witnesses.
R. Monteith has "confirmation bias" except with Kevin and I
R. Montieth, investigator for the BFRO, tried to place Justin Alan in the canoe with Matt without any knowledge of that. A three year old blog post confirmed that they were band members and friends. There is no knowledge that their status has remained so. This was a wild speculation on their part.
THIS VIDEO SHOW R. MONTEITH HAS "EVERYTHING'S A BIGFOOT DISEASE"
There are certain characteristics of hoax videos. Veteran researchers have noted these things for years. Bad acting, bad monkey suit, clumsy movements by the person wearing the suit, and so forth. None of these things were present in this case. That is why many people on the boards and blogs were saying this was "interesting," "intriguing,"
There is nothing in any ones lifestyle that would preclude them from getting the money shot. To dismiss them by slander and accusation without ever addressing the issue of the presented video is wrong. I thought your org was the only scientific org researching Bigfoot. Why this turn to tabloid sensationalism?
A week before the video was shot photos of large Sasquatch prints were sent to me and ABC Action News in Tampa. They were taken by a women named Marie. They were impressive and the news channel did a story on them.
The BFRO never mentioned that they were found in Lettuce Lake park and by someone not related to these people. I had contact with the lady. It was clear that something had moved downstream from the watershed and had found cover and food in the park area.
I was in Florvanic yesterday scouting an area to put up a trail cam. Take your pick. There are more game trails in here then I have seen in any area since I started in 2009.
There is no hunting in this wilderness area. Keep in mind it is a watershed area, and with all the rain we have been getting, its full of water. I just could not get back to the old cabin where I wanted to put up the camera.
This has not been the best season. I'm just going to have to go out more in the summer. The work must be done.
The photo is me after I got back to the parking lot.
Kevin Thomas Kehl and Rob Robinson have been going out on Friday nights to the "Florvanic" area. They are gifting the Bigfoot's that must be in there based on a number of credible sightings from the area. Rob is a dedicated Bigfoot researcher and he really earned my respect two weeks ago in Myakka, when in the freezing cold he stood on that observation deck with me in the middle of the night. Some wicked stuff was going on.
Kevin is a master at lighting and I have no idea how he back lighted those trees in the distance...long exposure? Good job.
Anyway, something has been messing with their gifts. I really need to get trail cams in there. Saturday would be good.
Must be a slow news day, but Shaun did a little write up about our Lettuce Lake canoe trip. Still more videos to load and they should be up today
What was cool was when Tom and I got back to the launch area, there were some people there, and one said "Are you the Bigfoot guys?" How cool. He said he watches my videos and was here to investigate the Skunk Ape.
We went down to Myakka River last week. The sight had been booked in advance and it just happened to be the coldest night of the year. I wanted cold and I got it. Rob Robinson, Stevie Strings, Stacey Brown Jr, and a guy that had a recent Bigfoot sighting in Myakka River State Park were part of this effort. It was good to see the guys again and I was very excited about the weekend coming up. Unfortunately, I would only be able to stay Friday night. I had to get back to Tampa for work. That situation should be changing for the better. More on that latter.
The swamp area we picked was once an Indian homestead centuries ago. My understanding is that paranormal groups have come out here to research at night. That is exactly what we had in mind. This may explain the apparition that appeared in the FLIR late night. More on that coming up
Headed out to the spot
I'm glad they knew the way. I use to live in Sarasota county back in the 1980's but its been a while to remember all the back roads.
The lady shows Stacey the map of where the camp is at
I am excited because its been a while since I've gone camping. I got my gear and ready to head out.
