2018 Fall Research Area…

Patch for web  Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages!

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

Tomorrow I depart for my fall research area.  This year’s area is along the Taylor Highway between Tok and Eagle, Alaska as well as the Top of the World Highway from Jack Wade Junction to Boundary, Alaska.  I will be gone for almost two weeks!  You can’t beat that with a stick!!!  I have been to this area several times before so I am pretty familiar with it, yet I’m still very excited to be going back and being in the field doing some solid hands-on research…

My research objectives are to establish an observation point with favorable topographical features and environmental factors.  That’s fancy talk for a high point overlooking a suitable valley with a water and food source.  I have a couple of pieces of equipment I will be testing this fall and a new method of collecting hair samples.  I will be searching river and creek bottoms, along established game trails and the shoulders of the highway for tracks, of course!  (Yes, tracking is what a tracker does just in case you haven’t figured that one out…)

I hope to be able to conduct some interviews with the local population too.  This area is in the heart of the 40 Mile Mining District and local gold prospectors and workers are usually a good source of testimony.  Almost every miner I have talked with in the past has a tale of something big and powerful lurking about their claims as well as accounts of vandalism that would require more strength than a grizzly bear.  I have one report of rock throwing and howling that I will be following up on with a site visitation too!

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Moose Pass Area Track Discovery

Patch for web  Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

I hope all is well…

Just a quick post to let you know of a track discovery that occured about a year ago in the Moose Pass area:

2016 / 06 / T – Moose Pass, AK.

Hiker discovers tracks on the shore of Upper Trail Lake in Moose Pass area. Reported via email, the witness described finding tracks around the 26th of September 2016 in the late afternoon. Witness stated he discovered a single left foot print 16.5 inches in length by roughly 8 to 8.5 inches in width at the ball of the foot. The track tapered down to 4.5 – 5 inches across the heel section and clear toe impressions were observed. Witness believed the track appeared “about a day old and was right next to the edge of the waterline of the lake shore.”  Witness also stated seeing the rough outlines of other tracks in the water for a distance of about 10 yards and estimated tracks were 5 – 6 feet apart. Sasquatch Tracker, 2016.

Sasquatch Tracker notes:  No photograph was taken, the witness did not have a camera on his person at the time of the discovery.  Visable tracks leading into the water and spanning an estimated distance of 30 feet supports the claim of the tracks being relatively fresh.  The witness stated he could see the rough outline so there was some erosion due to movement, displacement of water as the foot struck the bottom surface or from wave action.

Kenai Bigfoot Research Group on Facebook…

Patch for web Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages!

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

Sasquatch Tracker Associate Larry “Beans” Baxter has recently started a Facebook page for the Kenia Peninsula and surrounding areas!  (Visit Kenai Bigfoot Research now.)

Kenai Bigfoot Research Group

There has been quite a bit of activity in the Kenai area and Beans has been taking charge and conducting research and sharing his findings with Sasquatch Tracker.

Beans reported via email that through the Kenai Bigfoot page, he learned of an encounter around 2004 of a married couple who were coming back to Sterling, AK from the “Polar Bear Plunge” in Seward, AK.  (Polar Bear Plunges usually occur on January first of every year, so this is a probably a winter encounter.)

The couple reported “the headlights were on and both my husband and [I] saw a large “animal” on two feet run across the highway. We both were shocked it was definitely not a bear and walking two feet [and] way too big to be a human. When we got to where it crossed we stopped to look but didn’t see anything else. I am 100% positive it was a Bigfoot.”

The woman then went on to explain that she was going to clarify things with her husband because, “he’s better with distances and such [and] maybe [he] even would remember mile marker…”

Sasquatch Tracker recommends checking the Kenai Bigfoot Research Group page often and “liking”, “following” and showing support!   Keep up the good work Beans!

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Sasquatch Tracker at the AK Scottish Club Highland Games…

Patch for web   Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages!

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

Some of you already know, but for those who don’t, I sort of Scottish.  Sort of.

I am the Region X Commissioner for Clan MacTavish.  It’s quite an honor to be picked for such things.  Anyway, I will be hosting the Clan MacTavish tent at the Alaska Scottish Club Highland Games this coming Saturday, June 30th.  The Games have certainly grown over the years and are now held at the state fairgrounds in Palmer, AK.

Everyone is invited and welcome at the tent!  So if you are in the area, stop by and say hello…  Don’t worry, it is not against protocol to talk about Sasquatch while at the Highland Games.

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.

Field Guide To Sasquatch Structures

Image via http://www.amazon.com, 2018

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!

Godspeed, loyal readers…
