Last Minute Bigfoot

After a long hike, I sneak off into the woods to relieve myself. I feel that old familiar feeling that I am being watched. I take out my iPhone and start snapping photos. I capture a Bigfoot hiding in thick vegetation.



  1. Thanks Scott. Once again I must say that if more folks would stop and study the terrain around them using a set
    of binoculars, I believe they would be surprised at what
    is out there. They may be walking past what they are looking for.

  2. Scott, I hope all of your fans will excuse me for a moment
    as I go on a rant. Being unable to walk anymore, I sit on
    my butt and watch U-Tube videos on our "smart TV". Of course bigfoot videos get of most my attention. I often
    find it comical at the way some people go about getting
    footage of their bigfoot excursions. They might as well
    just turn their cameras on and throw them into the woods.
    Many of them would be well advised to develop the eye of
    the hunter. Hunting with a camera is no different than
    using a gun or bow. One must know the ground to be covered and the habits of what you seek. From this knowledge you should be able to anticipate the time and
    location of your quarry. Is this 100% fool proof? No, not
    by a long shot, pardon the pun. But it does increase the
    chances. Studying the terrain before ever leaving home
    by using Goggle Maps or Topographical maps of your selected location and reading reports carefully, all help. Stumbling into a bigfoot encounter means you probaly were not paying attention to your surroundings.
    I have said before, one must learn to relax in the woods.
    But it is better to clear your thoughts first to better
    accept what your eyes and ears are sending to your brain.

  3. Scott, since it is the end of baseball season, I thought
    I would go for my third swing. I have recently watched a
    video about a subject that I feel is not covered as much
    as it should be. The U-Tube channel "Kentucky Outlaw" did
    an excellent presentation called "Gear Up To Get Home".
    It covers basic survival gear that researchers should have on their person when out in the wilds. We are always
    concerned about extra batteries for our gear, and the latest and greatest gadget to be used, but how many of us
    carry waterproof matches, a lighter, cordage, a compass
    a spare flashlight or even let someone we can trust know
    where we are going and when we are expecting to return.
    I have done this for 40 plus years, and I can assure you
    that I never did. And I can also assure you that looking
    back on this what I did was stupid. There were a couple of times when my return was in doubt. I won't bore you with the details but the fact that I'm still here is based on dumb luck not my survival skills. Remember, once
    you leave the confines on your vehicle, you have just
    severed one link in your support system. No matter how
    much fun you are having, the main idea is to always come
    home. And one final comment. We are now in hunting season. For the hunters be safe. For the non-hunters, the
    same can be said. Remember we are all out here together.
