Attention Hunters, Your Encounters Needed…

Hello Again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

Been a busy August for me.  The more I seem to get ahead, the more I feel behind.  Obviously, I need some personal time at a cabin.  Anyway, I started the month doing some video work for an upcoming television documentary and then did a bit of research for a possible future book. The rest of August was pretty much little personal projects like oil changes in vehicles, getting things ready for winter (a sure sign summer is quickly fading) and scouting for winter research areas.  It seems like there is always something every day that must be tackled…

So, in most of Alaska, moose and caribou hunting seasons are happening right now.  If any hunters have any strange occurrences that can’t be attributed to bears, wolves, coyotes or other hunters, please contact me here.  This includes but is not limited to; strange howls and cries at night, camp vandalism, meat being stolen and general mayhem and harassment.  Let me know, I want to investigate!

More to come…

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Boreal Sasquatch Makes It On Pinterest…

Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

As always, I hope everything is fine with all of you…

I comb the internet looking for news articles and other information about the Boreal Sasquatch frequently.  It’s one of the ways I compile data for the research about our favorite elusive friend.  So imagine my surprise when I found a T-shirt design I made a few years ago as a fund raiser “pinned” on Pinterest.

It’s hard to complain about that!  Am I in the big league now?  Hardly, but it’s cool to see my work online!  Thanks to All!

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Get Your AK Sasquatch Encounter on TV!

Hello Sasquatch Fans of All ages…

As always, I hope everyone is doing fine.

The main website is still offline.  I was able to solve the payment problem.  Now I’m working towards a new design.  The old format was fine, but it needs a facelift.  I appreciate everyone’s patience.

For a handful of years now, Sasquatch Tracker has had a following by UK Bigfoot enthusiasts.  At first I was kind of surprised, but as time went by and more people became interested in Sasquatch and particularly the Boreal Sasquatch, I delightfully watched the number of readers outside of the USA and Canada grow.  Thanks to all of you world-wide for your continued support and ever growing interest…   

I was recently contacted by Mr. Ben Summers and asked if I could help him reach out to people who have had Bigfoot sightings in Alaska.  Mr. Summers is a Wild Dream Films TV producer from England and he is looking for people who would be willing to be on a television program and share their encounter. 

Mr. Summers is conducting his own research, described as a “sasquatch hunt”, on Prince of Wales Island and would be delighted to hear from anyone in that area that is willing to share the details.  Mr. Summers will also be visiting Ketchikan, Juneau, Haines and Skagway before heading to Fairbanks, Anchorage and eventually Kodiak.  If you have encounters in any of these places, or close by, please contact him at the link in the next paragraph. 

Sasquatch Tracker urges all readers and witnesses to come forward and share their Alaska Boreal Sasquatch experience!  Please contact Mr. Summers at: bensummers@gmx.net or via telephone at 78 7024 6842. (I believe that is a UK number, so you’re going to have to double check on country code prefixes and such.  Also please be mindful of the difference in times between the UK and Alaska if you call.)  

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Independence Day, 2020

Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

Sasquatch Tracker wishes everyone a happy and safe Fourth of July!

Whether you celebrate or abstain for personal reasons, it’s still the “Fourth” so enjoy it.  (Or hate it, you know, for personal reasons…)  Sasquatch Tracker tries to remain politically neutral on just about everything.  This puts the “focus” on Boreal Sasquatch studies, but I like America regardless of who fought in what war and for what cause. I’m very pleased to report that no terrorist faction or hate group is destroying Sasquatch statues and monuments…!  ‘Nuff said…

The upgrade to the main web site is proving to be extremely difficult.  My file transfers were completed without problems, meaning the database is still being maintained.  The problem is now related to payment for the hosting.  Payment was not made due to replacing a credit card and of course the account is locked so I cannot get in to update my profile including the new card number.  Obviously, my tech guy is working on this, but it’s difficult for him as well when contacting the help desk people.  Always something, I know, I know…

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Dmitri Bayanov, 1932-2020

Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

 
A bit of sad news to relay to everyone: I recently learned of the passing of noted Russian Hominologist Dmitri Bayanov on June 01, 2020.

 
Bayanov was born in Moscow, Russia and as a young adult he was involved with expeditions to the Caucasus Mountains in search of the Russian Almas. He eventually began conducting his own research, which lead to a good 55+ years of field study. He was one of the all-time greats in the field of hominology.  The term, hominology, was actually coined by Bayanov sometime in the 1970s and describes the study of living non-sapiens hominids such as Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Almasty and many other feral bipeds.

 
He was involved with Russia’s Relict Hominid Research Seminar and eventually became the group’s chairman. Bayanov also held various other leadership roles in other organizations such as the International Society of Cryptozoology and the International Center of Hominology.  He authored several books and contributed greatly to the field. (Yes, he was an obvious subject matter expert and he knew what he was doing.)

 
Bayanov was very influential to a much younger version of myself and I readily devoured his books. In fact, after reading and re-reading my copies of In the Footsteps of the Russian Snowman, Bigfoot Research: The Russian Vision and Russian Hominology: The Bayanov Papers – Fact & Folklore, I drew many parallels with my own research and began looking at the Boreal Sasquatch as a not so distant relative of the Russian Almasty.

 
Over the years of corresponding with other researchers, Bayanov’s name would eventually always come up in passing conversation. Fellow researchers always spoke very highly of his studies and level of dedication. Unfortunately, I never met Bayanov directly, but those who had, conveyed that he was a friendly and caring man, the kind of guy people liked being friends with. Bayanov had congestive heart failure problems and died at the age of 88.

 

Rest in peace Mr. Bayanov. We will all miss you…

Memorial Day, 2020

Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

First things first, Sasquatch Tracker wishes everyone a peaceful and safe Memorial Day!

Memorial Day Flag

Enjoy the burgers and hot dogs at your BBQs, but remember the freedoms we enjoy were paid for with the lives of others.  Be thankful…

The upgrade to the main web site is taking a bit longer than I had planned. It’s been a busy spring for me so far.  My new computer is here and I have slowly begun to transfer files.  I knew I had lots of information on Boreal Sasquatch, but I didn’t realize the exact amount until transferring and creating backup files.

Bigfoot Coffee and Stimulus Spending…

Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

As always, I hope everyone is doing well…

A special thank you goes out to Sasquatch Fan Jessie Desmond for sending me a package of Bigfoot Coffee!  It’s a Guatemalan blend and has a hint of cocoa…  I’m torn between opening it and trying it or saving it for my future Boreal Sasquatch Museum I plan to open.  Either way, it’s really cool!   Thanks again Jessie!

I went to do a much needed update to the main Sasquatch Tracker site and had a computer problem.  I downloaded some software to do the work and kept getting error messages.  My much younger tech guy quickly identified that my computer was nine years old and there had been a good half dozen upgrades to some core processor thing since it was purchased. Okay, I think…???

So, a new laptop with all the latest cool stuff has been purchased with corona-virus stimulus money and it’s on the way…  I can honestly say my work is supported by the government, or at least the government pays for my equipment!  Kind of cool I suppose.

Spring Research and Back-Trail Cam

Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages,

I hope all is well with all of you especially with the Coronavirus still active.

It’s quite possible that spring is actually here now.  It’s almost 50 degrees at 11 AM!  It’s kind of hard to complain about that.

I reached a decision on my spring research area.  The area has plenty of the natural resources required to support a Boreal Sasquatch, even with the competing bears in the area.  There is flowing water in a wide valley with several natural vantage points for setting up monitors and cameras.  I have conducted research in adjacent areas with favorable results in gifting and sorting items, so I believe this area will be productive as well.  So, exactly where is it?  Well, I keep these things secret to keep people from encroaching and possibly disturbing my experiments.  Sorry guys.

I’ve also decided to begin wearing a “back-trail camera”.  The camera I selected is the SQ11 Mini Camera.  The low cost was my deciding factor, I just don’t want to invest too much money until I’m convinced with the results.

SQ11 Camera

So wearing a “back-trail camera” is an idea I picked up from researcher Scott Carpenter.  Carpenter began wearing a small camera on his shoulder to video what was going on behind him as he traversed known Sasquatch areas.  He believed that as he walked down a trail, an undetected Bigfoot would have an uncontrollable urge to peek out from behind a tree or other cover used as a blind and observe him.  Carpenter’s notion proved to be correct and he was able to capture several video images of a Bigfoot observing him in the Great Smoky National Park.   How cool is that?  No sooner had I read this in his book, The Nephilim Among Us Updated, The Identity and Origin of the Sasquatch and Other Mysterious Creatures, that it was obvious that I had to give this a try.

So developing and testing various way and means to mount the camera to the different shoulder straps on the gear I normally carry is now underway.
