Bigfoot Insights from Robert Daigle

Some interesting views from long time Bigfoot researcher Bob Daigle. Bob has been all over the U. S. researching Bigfoot. He has had some interaction with the big guy. He has even written a book ” Reports of Bigfoot/Sasquatch in Michigan”. With reports from all over the state of Michigan. Thank you for your insight Bob!
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 night.
(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 night), 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 night, 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.

Editorial from Gum shoe guy

Bigfoot Community, Hypocrisy, Courage and the Citizen Scientist
The citizen scientist are not constrained by peer reviews or concerned with standards of journals. Everyone knows the citizen scientist in the Bigfoot community does the heavy lifting. Act like it, police your own Bigfoot community within your own orbit of influence. Respect is not given it is earned. Respect yourselves and others will respect you or risk credibility. Help clean-up the Bigfoot Sasquatch image by disallowing comedy and garbage from being used in the Bigfoot community. Courage is the point at which all other virtues are tested even when one is standing alone on a position. You’ll see that theme and methodology repeated over and over here. What I’ve learned in this business is the closer you get to the truth, the more vitriolic the responses become and generally among the previously unknown quiet lurkers. But, again personal courage is is the point at which all other virtues are tested even when one (you, me, us, we) is standing alone on a position. The Bigfoot community as fickle as it is can be extremely tolerant of fools posting pictures of Sasquatches dressed in underwear poking fun at the topic all day but … people like me, you, us, we have to be perfect all the time without error or human mistakes and frailties or risk our credibility… That is the hypocrisy within the Bigfoot community day. Is that clear? ~Val

Bigfoot message?

“Something has a strong penchant for hanging things in trees like ornaments and trophies. The something likes using trees to hide and conceal objects too. Something always synonymous to trees and rocks or water. Connect the dots and the picture becomes clearer each time. Nothing is a coincidence. Nothing is random. Everything has meaning. This is their calling card… This is similar to those business cards you professionals leave at the door “Hello, sorry I missed you, I’ll call back again soon,” sort of reminder of their handy work.”

“There have been puzzles and mysteries surrounding Bigfoot Sasquatches for a very long time. It seems neither enigmatologist puzzle masters or cruciverbalist’s have been able to crack the Bigfoot Sasquatches code.“
INTRODUCTION
Hello, my name is Val, and this my introduction: I am the Gumshoguy. The word Gumshoe is a moniker for a sleuth, a detective. Before the days of computers and modern electronics a detective’s worth was measured by the amount of chewing gum was stuck to their soles of their shoes. That meant walking knocking on doors talking to people the old fashion way of following leads. I spent 25 ½ years in the business with city, county, state and federal agencies doing what I did. When I wasn’t on the clock, I had a license from the state for private investigations as a private investigator for hire. I have been featured on the History/ A&E channel as a subject matter expert, (SME). I did instruction at two of Michigan’s largest community colleges, wrote a published article for a large professional law enforcement publication on the east coast, and was an invited guest speaker at two annual Midwest investigators conferences in Illinois. I attended Madonna and Central Michigan university and hold a degree in community development. My last act of compassion in paying it forward before I retired on June 2912 in good stead was reuniting a family in Ohio with their missing family member of 31 years “free gratis”-no charge. I gave up my vacation and sick time on the books and all off-duty time unselfishly to keep my promise to find and bring this young man home. I used the assistance of a medium and Mitochondrial DNA along with good old-fashion “gumshoe” to accomplish this.
I am not a Bigfoot expert friends. I am a life-long Michigan resident and a Bigfoot data-miner and researcher though. Some people mine for gold and other precious metals. Me, I mine for information and details. I am a data-miner and I profile Bigfoot Sasquatches. I have one largest active Michigan Bigfoot databases in Michigan. After eight years of study and research I have located over 1,600 Michigan reports going back many years, this figure is not static, but it is perpetual and grows as more people open up and share their most personal closely guarded experiences once held confidential due to ridicule and hazing. In my opinion Michigan is not unique this regard and that other states could have many more reports than publicly knows provided there is a need and drive to know. I am here to here to network, share and exchange ideas and to simply offer my own encounter to share so thank you for your friendship and fellowship.

Bear encounters with Sasquatch

Michigan Bigfoot Report and Data: Gumshoguy’s Corner
BEARS AND BIGFOOT
Are Bigfoot Killers of the bear?
I just remembered a case of a hunter finding a dead Grizzly with its jaw ripped out, and in the report, he found this quite strange…. And his question was, what could rip the lower jaw out of a Grizzly? It would be very hard for another Grizzly bear to rip a jaw out with its own jaws and teeth, but would be a useful technique for a Sasquatch to render a Grizzly as non-lethal. That according to a Ray Crowe Western Bigfoot Society, October, 1998 Track Record# 82. The question lingers but never answered until a published article printed a piece about a video titled, “The Legends of Bigfoot,” documenting a decade of his 24-year research. produced by Ivan Marx and It premiered in 1975. In it, the former professional tracker, Alaskan game warden, hunter, Ivan Marx of Burney, California claims Researcher reported Sasquatch winding up a Bear’s neck apparently like a rubber band until it snapped at the third vertebra and despite having Bigfoot hair in its mouth, skeptics discounted the bear kill as having been caused by a wild mule.
Do wild mules kills bears? The answer is to that is: The best place to hide a lie is between two truths. People are taken-in by the truths of the deception, but damned by the lie they could not see. The beauty of the Truth is that there can only be one.
Rewinding further into history again; here is a brief article recorded in a British newspaper, The London Times dated January 4, 1784:
“There is lately arrived in France from North America, a wild man, who was caught in the woods, 200 miles back from the Lake of The Woods, by a party of Indians; they had seen him several times, but he was so swift of foot that they could by no means catch up with him. He is near seven feet high, covered with hair, but has little appearance of understanding and is remarkably sullen and subdued. When he was taken, half a bear was found lying by him, whom he had just killed.”
Still unconvinced?
Apparently this has been known for many hundreds of years. You or I wouldn’t learn this because I am betting you and me were not wealthy enough or priviledged enough to know this because only the world’s most wealthiest were privy to such secrets.
Only the World’s wealthiest privy to knowledge 400 years ago
History tells us Bigfoot Sasquatches have been around a long time. How could Bigfoot Sasquatches be mentioned in Queen Mary’s book of knowledge 460 years ago? A book of knowledge was for the privileged, the very wealthiest, and the peasants and serfs had to real-world realities then and now. Bears have reason to fear Sasquatches. Bears usually scoot upon sight or scent of Bigfoots and sometimes when they hear the vocalizations bears become nervous and agitated and leave the area. For those of who said Bigfoot I would have to agree with you. Bigfoot killers of the bear? Legends of the Sasquatch being a killer of bears, is traceable as far back as 230 years ago and beyond perhaps at least 460 years. That is not to say Sasquatches are not injured. Bears have been known to devour consume infant Sasquatches when they happen upon them similar to bear cubs and Sasquatches respond with all the wrath and fury of their sense of vengeance an redemption and they hunt hunt kill and consume bears where they find them. I will qualify this preface as first saying I am not a Bigfoot expert nor am I Bigfoot researcher. I am a data miner of Bigfoot reports and have read and studied or analyzed hundreds of them. There are reports of Bigfoot, Sasquatches stalking and hunting bears. Hunters and professional tracking guides have reported finding bear tracks overlaid with Bigfoot prints clearly illustrating one predator stalking another predator. There have been photos of disastrous after effects of this meeting of minds and there have been reports of bears observed being chased through campsites by Sasquatches, bears chased through woods by screaming Sasquatches in hot pursuit. Large grizzly bears rolled up like a tortilla and hidden under brush. There have been reports of decapitated bear carcasses that have also been found. There is a native Indian story of a pair of hunters coming upon some horrendous screaming and growling and branch breaking then quietly watch in horror as Sasquatch and bear fight to the death.

St. Clair county Bigfoot

St. Clair County Bigfoot

Posted: 14 Jun 2018 10:13 AM PDT

I received an interesting telephone call from a man in Port Huron, Michigan on the night of Tuesday 6/13/2018. He was somewhat nervous, because it was the first time that he had told his story to someone other than family and friends.

This narrative begins in the early 1980s while the witness was young man living on his family farm in St. Clair County, Michigan…approximately 8 miles northwest of Port Huron. The first incident occurred when his older sister and her husband where living in a trailer on the property. About 2am she frantically ran into her parent’s house, yelling for her father to grab a gun because something huge had literally picked up the end of the trailer and moved it several feet.

There were other incidents of this 7-8 foot red-eyed hairy hominid walking onto the property, literally getting into the livestock pens and storage areas. In fact, it has killed many peacocks and pheasants that the witness’ mother has been raising. The family was on high alert for many years, fearing that the beast would make an attempt to break into the house.

One interesting incident occurred when the witness and a friend made their way to the sand dunes on the shore of Lake Huron…which was several miles east of the farm. This beast had literally followed the pair and shadowed them throughout the day. The being was not aggressive, but made the witness very nervous not knowing what would happen.

The witness also explained that there had been a strange incident back in the 1940s, when two local girls had gone missing after picking berries. Eventually the pair turned up, but there was never an explanation given as to what happened. Many years later, the witness befriended the woman, who was then in her 70s. He recalled the incident with her. She confided to the witness that ‘we would have never found our way back if it were not for the big hairy man who brought us home.’

There was another incident in 1981, also in St. Clair County, that made the news:

The Detroit News-Sunday, November 22, 1981

Hairy, red-eyed

Rock design

There are many that believe that the Bigfoot creatures will try to communicate, with both rocks, and sticks. This is their way of messaging ,possibly to us, as well as to each other. Here is an example of a possible communication with this individual very up close, and personal.

Overnight rock design on my deck

rockcirclefencenwoods

An overnight gift on my deck? Something unusual turned up this morning on my backyard deck which overlooks part of the Green Belt that connects hiking paths around the city where I live.

My bedroom window overlooks it directly. I once had a wired-in, infra-red motion detector focused on the yard there but something bit the wire in two! That was a few months ago. But just lately, I’ve been getting wood knocks in groups of 3 from the woods back there. Always a few minutes after I turned my light off.

A couple of nights ago, the knocks occurred immediately after I turned off my light. I told the Hubz but I wasn’t too excited, could have been lots of things. Last night around 8 or 9 pm some of the neighborhood dogs started barking in alarm mode. Again, I’d usually figure a deer or rabbit, coyote or whatever…until whatever was being barked at decided it had enough and made that super deep “hobita-hobita” growel + vowel sound that I and many others have associated with Brother Bigfoot or Sister Squatch. The barking stopped immediately. Again I mentioned it to my resident skeptic and he said, “Hmph.” So this morning I took a look out there and was shocked to see a perfect circle of 5 white landscape rocks laid out on the deck near the back rail. They had to have been carried from some edging close to the house. I know my neighbors…none of them would have sneaked onto my yard to make a little rock feature for me. The deck is surrounded by wilted plant debris so no footprints. Here are a few pix from my photo record. And the quarter and standard card deck are for size comparison, not a test to see if my visitor wants to ante up for a game of poker. BTW the woods were completely silent…no squirrels, birds etc. Eerie!
