What does Bigfoot want from us Humans

What Do Bigfoots Want from Humans?

Sightings of bigfoots and various other forms of contact with them can be classified into 3 categories:

(1) Accidental Contact, as when a bigfoot is seen crossing a road in front of a moving car, or heard screaming at nite.

(2) Human Planned Contact, resulting from a person actively seeking evidence of or an encounter with a bigfoot.

(3) Bigfoot Initiated Contact, in which the bigfoot actively seeks or initiates some form of contact with humans.

The types of contact initiated by a bigfoot include: looking into the window of a house, throwing things at a house or banging on it, approaching homesites and observing activities of humans outdoors, approaching campers and others out in the woods.

When food is taken, it is obvious what the bigfoot wants.  But why do the other forms of bigfoot initiated contact occur? The more we understand the why, the more likely we are to be able to encourage that type of contact and increase its frequency. To know why bigfoots initiate contact with us, we need to know what it is they want from us.

Here are some of the possible reasons for bigfoots initiating contact with us.  Perhaps others can add to the list.

(1)  Food, and sometimes drink.  Anything edible left outside or growing near someone’s home may be desirable to a bigfoot. In dry weather, any source of water, such as a swimming pool, artificial pond, watering trough, or even a water spigot.

(2)  Security.  Defense of territory or family.  Bigfoots may approach humans in the woods, follow them, vocalize, break branches, throw objects, and while humans are in their tents, enter campsites and even make contact with tents.  Their motivation may be that they want the humans out of their territory.  Perhaps the humans are near a bigfoot food source, or there is a mother and infant nearby.

(3)  Curiosity.  Their desire to watch what humans are doing or hear the sounds they are making (including our entertainment media). If bigfoot hearing is more sensitive than human’s, then they may be able to hear our voices, TV, radio, and music while hiding nearby, even with the house’s
doors and windows closed.  There are many reports of a bigfoot looking into a window. The closer they approach the home (most often at nite), the more likely they are to be seen by humans.  Curiosity may also be the motivation for them to approach campsites, especially when there is no sign of aggression by the bigfoot.  Many reports suggest that bigfoots may be especially curious about human infants and small children.

(4)  Boredom.  Many zoos recognize the need for “enrichment activities” for their animals.  If, at least at certain times of the year, bigfoots have leftover time after satisfying their need for food, they may then seek interesting things to occupy their time, such as watching humans and their activities.

(5)  Loneliness.  The assumed and very likely low population density of bigfoots may result in some individuals having long periods with no contact with their fellow beings.  This may explain those reports of a bigfoot frequently spending time right outside a house at nite, sometimes tapping on siding or windows and making low volume vocalizations.  Loneliness may also be a motivation for the reported cases of long term contact and habituation.  Since humans so often tend to view bigfoots as fearsome monsters, a bigfoot is not likely to find a human friend.  But in some cases loneliness or a need for friendship may be a motivating factor for a bigfoot to approach humans.

(6) Comfortable Life Style.  Bigfoots may realize that humans always seem to have food, shelter, and entertainment.  They may come in close to observe these things with some idea of trying to improve their own life style.

On the one hand, it is obvious that bigfoots in general have an overwhelming desire to not be seen by humans.  But on the other hand, there is reported a very strong pattern of bigfoots approaching humans (both in the forest and around homes), when they could more easily just keep their distance and remain entirely unknown. In these situations, they apparently do want something from us, or something associated with us. Understanding what they want is the key to increasing both the frequency and quality of our contacts with the bigfoot.

Why do Sasquatches smell?

The Scent of Sasquatch

With  thousands of bigfoot sighting reports around North America yearly,  we can start to see patterns, and also differences in the types of reports in what people see, hear… and also smell.


So what’s that awful smell all about? And why doesn’t everyone who’s had a sighting report an odor when they have their encounter? Some report a smell, and some don’t. Great apes are known to emit an odor when they’re excited or feel threatened. Do sasquatches fall into that category? Is that all there is to it? There are many and various thoughts on the matter, and each makes sense in its own right. But what’s the real answer?

One zoologist mentioned that people emit odors as well. He  noticed his  body puts out a perfumy smell when he is  around a woman he  likes, and a much more sour smell if he feels threatened. It’s more exaggerated in great apes though.”

“What exactly causes it?”

“It comes out in the sweat and it’s produced by glands in the skin, a lot of what people  smell  [during an  encounter  with  sasquatch]  is actually  due to  feces clinging  to the body hair. That smell can be fairly fresh or old and stale depending on how long it’s been there.”

“But the curious thing is that many report an almost skunk-like odor.That’s sulfurous fumes and they can come from the large intestine,” he said.“The smell resembles a wet animal with a skunky type of odor, but most folks describe it much worse.

Leon Drew, a bigfoot researcher from Colorado believes it may be a regional thing.“I think the odor has to do with humidity and temperature. his  encounter had no odor at 30 feet of distance. I theorize that the Sasquatch odor is tied to sweat and perceived danger. I feel in the dry mountain areas the odor is less than, say, Washington State and the Swamp Ape in the Southeast.

“Have you ever smelled one during your research?”“I think I smelled one earlier this year when we were scouting for camping area. It was a skunk-musk-like smell and it moved as we moved.”

And these theories explain it to some degree, but other interviewees suggested that maybe a sasquatch can create this smell at will. There are many animals that have the ability to do this and why should a sasquatch not also have this skill? Certain snakes like copperheads and pythons do it. Foxes, hyenas, and wolverines also. Some use it as a defense mechanism, like stinkbugs and skunks, while others seem to just emit an odor when they’re agitated or stressed.








Waterloo Recreation area

February 2nd, 2017

I recently came in contact with a gentleman named Bob Daigle through his Bigfoot website .About a week later we had a lunch and discussed the world of Bigfoot. It was refreshing to talk to someone that has the same interest in the Bigfoot world as I do. We had also discussed getting out into the field and checking out some areas that have been reputed to have Bigfoot activities.
