The Mirror Online Does a Feature Article with Sasquatch Tracker…

Patch for web Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

First things first, Christopher Bucktin, US Editor of the Mirror Online (www.mirror.co.uk/) recently paid Sasquatch Tracker a visit.  Bucktin and his photographer, James Breeden, spent the day discussing my research and the Boreal Sasquatch in general.  We had a satisfying conversation and they seemed to have enjoyed Alaska even though we were all chilled to the bone during the outdoor photo sessions.

Join the hunt for Bigfoot with law enforcement officer who has devoted 33 years to search for elusive beast…   

Somehow, there was a bit of confusion, and it appears as though the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization inadvertently belongs to me.  There is nothing wrong with the BFRO, but as you know, Sasquatch Tracker and www.sasquatchtracker.com are completely independent.  I am a sole operator and not affiliated with any particular research group.  I have asked for a correction and alerted the BFRO that I am not trying to hijack their organization.  That being said, all in all, it’s a great article!  Be sure to read the usual scoffers’ comments…

Latest News and Harper’s Ferry License Plate Photo…

Patch for web   Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

The last couple of weeks have been busy for the Sasquatch Tracker.  On December 3rd, I spent the day with the Mirror’s US Editor, Christopher Bucktin discussing Boreal Sasquatch.  Bucktin  contacted me around Thanksgiving and requested an interview.  Plans were made and we met in Tok, AK.  We talked for quite a while and had a satisfying conversation about the Boreal Sasquatch.  In the afternoon, I conducted a very brief tour of the local area while we wrapped things up with some photographs.  It was just a tad south of zero degrees, but we had an enjoyable day.

Two new and related encounters are being investigated.  A moose hunter taking a nap in a tent was “brushed up against” through the tent wall, while a relative and friend discover a lone track in the area.  More to come…

A buddy of mine who works in Harper’s Ferry, WV captured this image on his way to the office this morning:

How cool is that?  It’s not quite the Appalachian equivalent to “GHOSTBUSTERS”, but it’s still a cool license plate!  Try “YETIMEN”  in Google.  These fellows look like pretty hard core winter camping kind of men who would party with Yeti.  Thanks for the photo, RC…

Mark A. Hall

Patch for web     Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

I just learned of the passing of Mark A. Hall.  Some of you may have already heard this.  Somehow I just didn’t get the news until now.

After careful study, it was Hall who came to the conclusion that we may have more than one type of undiscovered primate in North America.  Hall noticed a distinctiveness in both descriptions and tracks of Sasquatch like beings in Sub-Arctic areas when compared to beings from other regions.  These beings are called Marked Hominids.  You have heard me refer to them as Boreal Sasquatch.

As a researcher based in the Sub-Arctic / Boreal Forest environment of Alaska, the bulk of my exploration of the Boreal Sasquatch is based on Hall’s ideas about Marked Hominids.

Hall was born in Minneapolis, MN on June 14, 1946.  Like most of us, Hall had a few different jobs throughout his lifetime including some active duty time with the US Army.  I understand that he corresponded with Ivan T. Sanderson and was pretty good pals with Loren Coleman.  Hall and Coleman even co-authored a book in 2010 called, True Giants: Is Gigantopithecus Still Alive?.  (I highly recommend that you put this on your reading list!)

Hall died on September 28, 2016 after a long battle with cancer.

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Tok – A – Tan Bazaar Report and Thanksgiving Message…

Patch for web  Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…

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

The Tok – A – Tan Holiday bazaar was successful!  At least 90 people stopped by the table.  I have three new leads on encounters and heard about a track that was recently discovered by moose hunters.  Thanks to everyone for a successful day and thanks for purchasing the survival merchandise my family makes and sells!

Congratulations to “CJ” of Tok, Alaska on winning the 1963 Laird Meadows, CA replica track casting.  Even though it is a multi-generational copy, it still has quite a history behind it.  I hope you display it proudly and enjoy it for many years.

I also want to congratulate Martha (age 8) on winning the Boreal Sasquatch coloring contest!  Her enthusiasm for Bigfoot is rather contagious… Good job kiddo!

martha

So this is Thanksgiving week…  Yep, we are supposed to reflect on people and things in our lives that we are grateful for.  I’ll get to the point, I’m grateful for all of you.  You guys are the ones who make this blog a success! Without you as my audience, I’m just another guy mumbling to myself.

I want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.  Enjoy the family and the turkey.  And like I said last year, even if you hate your relatives and can’t stand turkey, just fake it for the day and make everyone happy…

I recommend boycotting Black Friday again.  Go outside and take a nice hike and suck in plenty of fresh air while you conduct some of your own Sasquatch research.  Doing that is obviously healthier than being assaulted over some crummy wireless gizmo that someone else thinks they should have more than you.  Avoid the fights and do the hike…

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Mid-Summer Encounter in the Copper Center Area…

Patch for webHello again Sasquatch Fans of all ages!  I hope all is well with you…

I have a mid-summer encounter to share with you:

A witness living close to Copper Center, AK contacted Sasquatch Tracker via email and reported that “…At 11 pm on the 24th of July, 2016, I was on my way home when I began to drive down our road when my high beams (headlights) highlighted something about 30 feet from the front of my car. It stood at about 6 and a half feet tall, all black. As I approached it, [while still in the vehicle] it took off into the woods – bipedal, arms swinging and lunging forward at an incredible speed and surprising amount of grace. It went back into the woods and disappeared.”

INVESTIGATIVE NOTES:  Follow up questions revealed no further sightings, but the witness stated her animals were “…terrified of something.”  The witness explained that “…My horses have experienced bear, coyotes, wolves, you name it – they’ve handled it.  But this was entirely different.”  The area surrounding Copper Center (N 61°57’55’ X W 145°19’6’) is a boreal environment that offers abundant food sources including big game and non-game animals, birds, fish and various forms of vegetation. This area would positively support one or more Boreal Sasquatch or Marked Hominids.

This will be added to the ever growing database of Alaska encounters on the main website.

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Happy Labor Day from Sasquatch Tracker…

Patch for webHello Sasquatch Fans of all Ages…  I hope all is well with each of you…

I have a couple of new encounters in the process of investigation.  Both encounters are sightings.  One event occurred near Talkeetna involving a moose hunter.  The other event occurred on July 24th near Mile 94 of the Richardson Highway in Copper Center.  Stay tuned.

Hunting season is upon us here in Alaska.  Hunters, please keep your eyes and ears open.  If you encounter anything out of the ordinary, please contact me at admin@sasquatchtracker.com .

 

Labor Day

It’s Labor Day Weekend!  Sasquatch Tracker wishes everyone a fun and safe holiday!  Go to the neighborhood BBQ and enjoy the burgers and hot dogs.  Have a good time.

If you are one of the unfortunate people that is stuck working on the holiday, be sure make up for it on your next day off.  Remember, you can BBQ any day of the year and enjoy it.

What?  Not working and have no interest in a BBQ?   Take a nice long hike some place where you have not explored and be on the lookout for our favorite forest dwelling buddy.

Godspeed, loyal readers…

Hunting Season is Here…

Patch for webHello again Sasquatch fans of all ages… I hope all is well with all of you.

It is now hunting season in most northern locations and I want to remind all hunters to be extra vigilant.

When looking for signs of game, be observant of possible signs of Boreal Sasquatch.  Be on the lookout for tracks, unexplained broken trees or structures that look like shelters, tree rubs and scrapes that can’t be attributed to common animals and any other type of sign that is out of the ordinary.

Most hunters I know carry a GPS unit to keep track of where they are and pack cameras to record their hunt.  Use these tools to record any discoveries or encounters.  If you take photos of a particular piece of possible evidence, be sure to have something in the photo that shows the scale.  A kid’s plastic ruler cut down to six inches would be excellent to use.  Light weight and easy to pack plus they are probably on sale right now since most retailers are having “back to school” sales.

I want to remind you to also be alert when the hunt is over.  There are a handful of encounters in the Sasquatch Tracker database that describe events where a Sasquatch made off with part of a moose or a caribou that hunters were not able to pack out in one trip.  Viscera would make an excellent source of protein that would require little effort for bears, coyotes, wolves and of course Boreal Sasquatch.

I wish everyone a safe and successful hunting season!    Godspeed loyal readers…

Sasquatch Tracker Associate Relocates…

Patch for webHello Sasquatch Fans of all Ages… I hope all is well with each of you…

 

Sasquatch Tracker Associate Doug Shepherd has moved to Oregon!

Doug contacted me out of the blue just over a year ago and we have been discussing all things Sasquatch since then.

After a few emails, Doug told me about his plans for some independent research in the Cordova, AK area. I readily agreed that he had selected a prime location and Doug agreed to share the research results with Sasquatch Tracker. (See 2015/05/O – Cordova, AK for Doug’s results.)

After several emails discussing various research methods and ideas, and reviewing the information regarding the incident in Cordova that he forwarded to me, I knew Doug was serious about research. Doug eagerly volunteered and assisted me with a handful of projects including conducting field interviews, follow-up investigations and chasing down a few leads on tracks and castings. Doug even conducted an expedition with a witness at a remote cabin! Doug was also one of my field testers for the Evidence Collection Kit and contributed some valuable feedback.

Doug told me he is relocating near some recent Sasquatch activity and intends to keep up with his personal research. Sasquatch Tracker wishes him the best of luck and I anticipate hearing about his activities…

Thank you for all you have done, brother… Your assistance is going to be missed!

Godspeed, loyal readers…
