Possible Evidence from Bottenintnin Lake, Alaska…

Patch for web   Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages!

As always, I hope all is well with all of you.

More new followers!  I want to welcome all of you!

Can you believe it?  We’re in the fourth week of May already.  Spring has definitely arrived in my area.  It’s been a while since we have had frost or been below freezing at night and schools everywhere are holding graduation ceremonies.

Sasquatch Tracker Associate Larry “Beans” Baxter was recently examining the area around Bottenintnin Lake Alaska and noticed a couple of odd tree breaks in the parking area.  Bottenintnin Lake ( N60.515556  X  W150.555283) is a popular fishing area and is near Sterling, AK.

Baxter reported that there was quite a bit of human activity in the area so he is not ruling out the possibility that the observed tree breaks could have been man-made.  However, the larger tree is pretty thick and green and it’s doubtful that the damage was caused by the wind.  Baxter also reported that the second tree (to the right of the spruce tree in the photo) was pointing the same direction.  There was no definable disturbance to the ground in the vicinity of the trees.

Baxter further reported walking around to the west side of the lake, but nothing suspicious was noted.  Baxter has plans for further investigation in the area later this summer.

Thanks for sharing Beans!

April News, Best Contact Method…

Patch for web  Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

As always, I hope everyone is doing fine!

So, some April news and notes:

Hello and thanks to all the new followers!  There has been a big increase in new people joining the Sasquatch Tracker ranks this past month and I want to welcome to all of you.  I want to express my continued appreciation for all of my other loyal readers as well.  As you know, this blog doesn’t work well without people reading it…

I was recently interviewed by Sasquatch Syndicate’s Chuck Geveshausen for an upcoming podcast.  I’ll share the information as it comes in regarding the date and time of the cast.

The best way to contact me is via email.  [ admin@sasquatchtracker.com ]   Quite a few people have been asking questions and I can’t respond properly without an email address.   Be sure to type “Sasquatch Question” on the subject line.  The spam blocker on my email will probably filter you, but if you type “Sasquatch Question”, I will still be able to locate your inquiry in my spam folder.

Bear baiting has begun in Alaska.  Bear hunters are reminded to keep their eyes and ears open for anything out of the ordinary happening at their bait stations.  If you hunt and have an encounter, hear vocals or discover tracks, be sure to let me know…

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Book Review: A Field Guide To Sasquatch Structures, The 50 Most Common Types In North American Forests…

Patch for web Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

As always, I hope all is well with all of you…

I recently came across an interesting book entitled A Field Guide To Sasquatch Structures, The 50 Most Common Types In North American Forests by Christopher Noel and illustrated by Zoe Christiansen.  (Copyright, 2016, $11.99 via amazon.com, ISBN: 9781539592136.)

This book is unique and it offers something for everyone.  New researchers or people just interested in an explanation of something they have seen in the forest will definitely benefit from the information presented.  Seasoned researchers will find this book as a valuable reference to help with field investigations.

The bulk of this book is laid out with a brief description on the left pages and an  illustration of the structure on the right pages.  Every few pages, Mr. Noel has added a few of his observations and helpful notes.  For example, Noel discusses the possibility of Sasquatch purposely hiding trail cameras that are aimed at existing structures almost as if seeking privacy as well as the possibility of bark being part of the Sasquatch diet when observing bare sticks strewn about a nest site.

The good:  There is an appropriate amount of detail in the illustrations.  I found this to be a good trait because the use of a photograph to show a particular structure can be misleading.  Yes, I realize that sounds like backward thinking because everyone would agree that a photograph of an actual structure would be far superior to a drawing.  However, since each structure can vary by numerous elements, it’s easy for people to begin to misidentify what they are encountering.  For example, people will begin to argue that they found a t-pee structure, while others will argue that they are incorrect because the structure lacks certain elements that are clearly seen in a photograph.

The bad:  My only criticism of this book is that it lacks a table of contents and an index.  The types of structures seem to be organized according to type such as tree snaps, t-pee structures, nests, weavings and a handful of other types.  But a researcher using this as a reference needs a table of contents or an index giving the page numbers where the information could be found.  I intend to create my own page tabs in order to make my use easier.

In all, it’s a good book and if you read it, you’ll find yourself saying, “Ha, I have seen that before” or “So that’s what that was on the side of the trail.”  Sasquatch Tracker recommends this one!

Winter Notes…

Patch for web Hello again Sasquatch Fans of all ages.

 As always, I hope all is well with each of you…

Winter is always a slow time for Sasquatch Tracker.  That’s just the way it is.  There is a definite seasonality to this business for me. Winter months are spent sorting through unfinished investigations and conducting follow up interviews.  I also spend time scouting areas for possible research and work on improving evidence collection.

 This spring I will be using a drone equipped with a camera for environmental assessments and I hope to have some interesting photos to share with all of you.  While other researchers having been employing drones since they came out for public use, this is new to me.  Old dogs can learn new tricks if old dogs apply themselves.  I better begin applying as soon as the spring temperatures arrive and the snow begins to melt…   

 About a week ago, I was contacted by a truck driver who has had two separate sightings along the Seward Highway in the Summit Lake area (N 60.626684 X W 149.514170) a few miles before the junction with the Sterling Highway (N 60.534004 X W 149.555125) going to Cooper Landing.  It’s been a few years since I have been in that area, but I do remember that the terrain was indicative of supporting Sasquatch.  Further investigation is pending…

Dr. John Bindernagel, 1941-2018

Patch for web  Hello Sasquatch Fans of all Ages…

I have some sad news today…

Dr. John Bindernagel passed away on the night of the 17th after battling cancer for almost two years.  

Bindernagel was a well-known wildlife biologist and the author of North America’s Great Ape: the Sasquatch and The Discovery of the Sasquatch.  Bindernagel was devoted and had studied and pursued evidence of Sasquatch since 1963.

I didn’t have any direct contact with him, our paths just never crossed, but other researchers who had worked with him had nothing but good things to say about him.  He was known to be kind-hearted and patient.

Bindernagel believed that Bigfoot was not given the seriousness it deserved.  He believed the way that Bigfoot was portrayed in the media dismissed the actual knowledge serious researchers had collected.  I think we can all relate to that. 

John Bindernagel

He was a tremendous asset to all of us and he will be missed.  Rest in peace, Mr. Bindernagel.

“Squatch” Claus visits Sasquatch Tracker…

Patch for web Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

As always, I hope all of you are doing fine and I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas.

“Squatch” Claus paid me a visit and I am now the proud owner of a Sasquatch Nutcracker.  Yes, you read it correctly, a Sasquatch Nutcracker…  I never knew these things even existed.  A special thanks goes out to my two nieces, sister-in-law and brother in Colorado!

IMG_2752

My brother and his family are big fans of the movie, “A Christmas Story”.  You know, the movie where little Ralphie Parker obsesses about getting a “Red Rider” BB gun and everyone warns him, “you’ll shoot your eye out”.    If you are familiar with it, then you will remember the scene where Ralpie’s father is carefully unpacking the “sexy leg lamp” he was awarded for on the job performance.  You’ll recall that it was “a very important award” and Ralpie’s father believes it is imported from Italy because he reads FRAGILE as “Frag`ile” as if it was some Italian word meaning great or grand… Well, I received a package marked  “Frag`ile” and “Major Award”…  I carefully opened it expecting to find a replica “sexy leg lamp”   of my own and was pleasantly surprised to find this:

Laugh if you wish, but “it’s a major award” for me to be receiving from my family in Colorado.   Thanks B, K, V and V!!!

Godspeed, loyal readers…
