In my recent video post, Bigfoot Research – A Day In The Field – Part 1” I dropped a hint that I had discovered another “cryptid” in my research area. When I first started researching I thought the Bigfoot was some sort of ape/human creature. The more I learned the more I came to the opinion that the Bigfoot was basically a human of some type. When you see one and look into its face it is hard to deny that they look like us and display the same if not greater intelligence than us. So to be honest I never thought of them as a cryptid. They did not have horns, large fangs or claws. I am pursuing and researching what I consider to be a large, hairy, indigenous people that live in the forest.
I was very happy in my little Bigfoot world until last Spring (2011) when I got the shock of my life. I know you want details and I do not like doing this but for now I do not want to reveal what cryptid messed up my “Bigfoot world”. Some will be able to figure it out and that is fine, but for now it is best for me to keep this “secret”.

I will say that the Bigfoot does not like this creature. They completely left this area, which was once a prime bedding area. It was also a feeding station where the Bigfoot were given fruit and candy bars. Gifts were also exchanged at this location and hair samples were collected for the DNA study. When the new cryptid arrived all the Bigfoot activity completely stopped in this location. I had to establish a new feeding station almost a mile away from this area.

The feeling in this area also changed. It has become a very “spooky” place. I refuse to go in to this area alone. When I do take someone with me they will often comment on the “bad feelings” they get in this place. The “stick shelter” that was once maintained by the Bigfoot has now fallen in disrepair. I find no tracks or any sign of Bigfoot activity in this area.
Just being a Bigfoot Researcher is tough enough. Most "average" people think your nuts, but to add these other cryptids into the mix, even other Bigfoot researchers think your nuts. In this field we have “classes” of “crazy”. If you have seen one of the “non-approved” cryptids then your classified as a “nut job”, “loon”, “wacko” or my favorite “he is waaaay out there”.
Ray Crowe once told David Paulides, “the more you learn about Bigfoot the weirder and stranger it gets”. I have heard David repeat this in several interviews and I completely agree. The more knowledge you gain about the Bigfoot the stranger it gets and then out of no where other cryptids start popping up and it goes from strange to unbelievable fast.

So where does that leave us? For now I have chosen not deal with this “new” cryptid. I am aware of their presence and I take the necessary precautions. I try to avoid them and their area if I can. If the Bigfoot do not want to deal with them then I definitely to not want to tangle with them! I am going to concentrate on my Bigfoot research and the DNA Project. Once the DNA paper is published and all the hoopla from that dies down, then I will concentrate on this “new” cryptid.
The one thing I have definitely learned over the past couple years is the monsters are real and they are out there!
