Bigfoot In The Back Yard - Preview - Hardware -Night Vision Scope

Night Vision Scope w/ HD video camera attached.
I had confided in my good friend Richard Hucklebridge that I was getting these visitations at my home but the dern things were avoiding all my attempts to capture a picture of them on traditional trail cameras. Richard had purchased a 3rd Gen. Night Scope to use in his research a few years back. He was not currently using the scope and was kind enough to loan it to me.

I immediately went to work adapting a HD Video camera to the eye piece so I could record images at night. This scope was designed to be used with an IR emitter, but it is so sensitive that ambient light from the moon and in my case street lights are more than enough to illuminate my back yard for the scope. I have a working theory that the Bigfoot can see light in the Infrared Spectrum. This ability to film with very little electronic emissions is critical.

The only draw back to this setup is the scope itself. Since it was designed to be a rifle scope it does not have a "wide angle" setting. The scope has to be focused on a area at a fixed distance. This greatly limits my field of view. I place the scope and camera combination on my deck most nights. I point it in different directions everynight since the field of veiw is only approximatley 15 feet wide. 

I have recorded flashes of things but no detail. On the night in question I was operating the scope/camera and searching for a subject because of all the commotion. I also used to zoom on the camera to look at areas more closely.

Another draw back to the camera/scope combo is it is very difficult to see things during operation. There is little contrast in the light green picture generated by the scope. That is why I did not see the subject in the camera when I was filming. Only after adjusting the brightness and contrast on my video viewer did I see the Bigfoot hiding.

I went out at a later date and recorded myself at night in order to have a comparison. I found that the Bigfoot was probably standing at an angle either kneeling or squatting as it looked at me. The interesting thing I found is regardless of time I took the video, in the day light or at night using the Night Vision scope it was every easy to conceal my body and only stick my head out. 

Time and time again I hear "where is the body?" or "its just a disembodied head, it must be an artifact, their is no body". Well my head was not separated from my body (there are some in the Bigfoot community that wish it was :-) ) and the only visible part of me was my head. 

Still capture in both Night Scope green and black and white for better detail

This is a common practice in the wild. Deer especially use this tactic of hiding their entire body and only sticking their heads out to take a peek at a hunter. I have witnessed it many times. There is also the obvious reason, all the sensory organs are located on your head! The eyes, ears, and nose are used to locate and identify. It is smart not to expose your entire body from both a camouflage and danger perspective. I'm sure if your eyes were on your elbow the critics would be complaining we only get a shot of their elbows!!  


  1. Ever get the feeling bigfoot looks at this
    website too?

    1. I would not be surprised! The have the ability to sense and find our technology. Do the use infrasound like radar and if it hits metal or circuitry it makes a distinct sound they can pick up or hear? This clues them in that some sort of man made technology is close? Is this ability well developed so that they can locate the object within a few yards? I would liken this to dolphins and their "sonar"...

    2. Scott, I would try an experiment. Two of your dogfoot containers. Both of them with
      dogfood, one with some type of electronic
      device (your choice). Place the one without
      the device where it was not convenient for
      them. Maybe.....

  2. Scott,

    I think I figured out why they like you - you are a Sasquatch! The test photo of you 'confirms on coned head, pronounced brow ridge and slope to back' !

    Great work - you are really giving a face to these big fella's - I know you said the angle is wrong, but if the distance is correct, that fella has a big head.

    In fact, these fellas are the only folks I know that have a big head and probably don't think too highly of themselves. Then again you said they do act out in the forest when you bring along a guest.

  3. That one's head is like 4 times the size of yours. I wonder how large it was?

    I'm not sure how this would work but what about testing out a colored filter (maybe even colored cellophane) like red over the scope and see if it brings in more definition, or a polarization filter perhaps?
