Strange Lights

Some of the team went out to our research area last night. It was pretty cold so we built a fire right away. Not long after we built the fire we started hearing some branches break and some leaves rustling. It was time to head deeper into the woods! We heard some yells off in the distance. These yells set the coyotes off. It was awesome just to stand quietly and listen. As we stood listening, we saw something I can't explain. There was a light that at first I assumed was an airplane. But as we began watching it, it wasn't blinking and wasn't making any sound at all. We all four watched this light evolve from orange to white to yellow, and it was moving very fast. This light dove straight down to about 15 to 20 feet above the ground and it was moving through the trees not twenty feet away from us. We all watched this thing for quite some time. Then it just stopped and hovered. Finally, it moved on past our line of site. But not two minutes after it was gone we started picking up a lot of footsteps exactly where it had stopped and hovered.We went in that direction but never could see anything. We heard a lot of branches breaking and footsteps in the leaves. But we never saw anything. I can't explain what this light was. I have never seen anything like this. It was awesome to witness and now I am more curious than ever as to what goes on in the dark woods at night. We didn't capture any evidence but anytime you can leave the woods with a personal experience, it was a successful night.

Nice Mentions

Our team received some nice mentions on the Audio we captured last Saturday. It would be nice if someone could analyze the whole recording for us. I was just blown away by the low guttural tones.

Thanks for the mention guys!

Bluff Charge or Territorial Display

Some members of our team went up to an undisclosed river in the mountains on Saturday, August 22. (We were on the outskirts of the Appalachian national forest.) to spend the night and do a little squatchin. This place has had sightings and is a known bigfoot hot spot. Around nine thirty a group of us headed out while others remained at camp. We hiked a long way into the woods into some pretty rugged terrain. We got some tree knocks, heard some close grunts and saw some evidence of "wildlife" during our hike. There were a few strange structures, but with it being dark, I didn't get photos plus the fact that we all have seen tree structures and these were nothing out of the norm. We crossed an area with a terribly strong urine smell. I mean it was almost nauseating it was so strong. As we walked we were on what looked to be a small trail. I don't know if it was a game trail or a fishermans trail. But there were some broken branches that we noticed as we walked. We did a few whoops and a couple of yells. We were hearing distant responses. And knowing that there was no way it was another person due to our secluded location. With it being so distant there was no way I could have picked it up on audio. After a while, some of us decided to head back to camp. It was still early and we knew the activity would probably pick up later during the night. Two of the men stayed in that area to try to get a response. Two other men walked the girls back to camp. The reason it was done this way, we were in bear and mountain lion country. The men were armed and the ladies only had bush knives on our sides.After we were safely back to camp our two escorts headed back out. Once they met up with the two that were waiting they all four headed deeper in. They came across an area where a small a dome had been fashioned with branches and leaves. It looked to them to be a beding area. They continued deeper until they found a large fallen tree. They sat donw to rest and listen for a bit. This is when they heard what sounded to be two teenage girls mumbling in the distance. They knew there was no way this was humanly possible.(Samurai chatter?) After a while, they heard two tree knocks, right after this from behind them came a sound that caused them all to go into fight or flight mode. It will be hard to describe to you what they heard but I will try to put you there.
They were sitting on a log very deep in the woods adjacent to a running river. Tree frogs and crickets could be heard but you could not see the sky through the canopy of the trees. It was so dark you could not see you hand in front of your face. They had cut out all lights and sat in the dark quietly talking. Behind them was the sound of a very large tree coming down! The noise cut the quiet of the night with a loud wood splintering sound! There was no thud of the tree hitting the ground. The woods went completely silent right after, then came the sound of a loud and close tree knock! The guys jumped to their feet with guns drawn. They said they fully expected to be charged! After the woods went silent they waited a few more minutes knowing the charge was coming! Knowing this had been a bluff charge or a territorial display, they slowly made their way back out. On their way back out the noticed river mud on some leaves that were well over eight feet. This mud was brushed on top of the leaves and not underneath them! We can't say for sure what any of this was or why it happened, but it was an awesome experience!!

Juvenile Bigfoot?

I know that some of you, through our YouTube channel know that we took down some tree structures. For those of you that don't know, About a month ago, after not getting much activity, I sort of had a brainstorm. I wondered what would happen if I took down a few of the tree structures in our research area. Well, I ran this idea by the team and we decided to give it a try. We took down three or four structures, piling the sticks into a neat pile where the structure had been and leaving an apple with the stack of branches. The apple was placed inside the branches where something would have to reach inside to get it. The next day, the apples were all gone with no signs of what took them. No bites of the apple were left laying around, no core, just completely gone. We left things as they were and decided to give it a few weeks to a month without us going back into the woods. Let nature get comfortable again and see what happened. In the mean time. We were home in our own yard sitting outside every evening letting the grandkids play in the evening air. Just as the sun starts to set, the kids (2 and 4) are playing with the gravel in our driveway. This had become an evening ritual and went on for a few weeks. One evening something hit the storage shed that is adjacent to the woods that connects to our research area. My son, Chris and I go to see if we can find out what made this noise. While walking down to the edge of the yard I notice as we near the storage shed, there is a couple of small piles of gravel on top of the grass. There is no way the kids could have brought the gravel all the way down here. 1. They are not allowed that close to the woods. 2. We don't allow them to put gravel in the yard due to the lawn mower picking it up and throwing it. I stood just behind the gravel and looked up into the yard.  There were trees and bushes obscuring my view of where we sat in the evenings. Marty and Cari were still sitting there and I couldn't see them. Then I knelt down. I could see perfectly underneath a utility trailer to where my two grandchildren played in the driveway. I watched them for a couple of minutes playing with the gravel. To my amazement, they were making small piles with their hands. This both intrigued me and unnerved me. Chris and I walked behind the building to look around. The only thing we found out of place was a rock about the size of a baseball. I took this rock and wedged it inside two limbs of a tree just behind the building. For the next few evenings, my rock would be on the ground near the base of the tree. Ok, maybe an animal knocked it out. I built a small structure around the base of the tree. Wedged my rock back into place. Wedged another rock higher and then wedged a limb into the tree that touched both rocks at once. The next evening, the limb touching the two rocks was moved out with a Bluejay feather laying on top of the lowest rock. I took the feather and fixed my limb back touching the rocks. I went inside the house and retrieved some colored stones. Red ones and clear ones. I took them back out to the tree and lay them on a board in a straight line. Nothing other than my limb being moved happened for a few days, and then my rocks were moved! They were two red moved up, two clear moved down and so forth. They had been moved from a straight line to a pattern!So, I lined them all backup. After a few days, they were moved back into the same pattern. This made us think we may have an adolescent in the area. So about a week ago, every evening about eight o'clock we notice all of our dogs throw their noses to the air and point to a densely wooded area of our yard. Just to the right of this tree and stones. After seeing this, Marty and I decide to take a walk in the direction. To my surprise, we find a small print! This print is found in dried red clay. This stuff is as hard as concrete so there is no way any of us is heavy enough to create one ourselves. And it was found in some rough terrain that no one would be able to maneuver through with bare feet. But it leads into my theory of having a young one in the area.
If you have any questions, comments or even suggestions, let us know! We'll keep you guys posted!

Strange Yells

Last night, at roughly nine O'clock, we were sitting out in the yard enjoying the cooler evening temps when we heard this strange scream come from the woods across the road. My dogs don't usually pay too much attention to the night sounds, but this had them all going crazy. This yell was unlike anything I have ever heard before. Marty, Chris and I listened to it for a long time. We could tell it was not stationary, it was moving. The three of us walked up the driveway to see if we could hear it better and maybe tell exactly where it was coming from. Of course, I grabbed the audio. I did capture the yells. But my dogs are also going nuts. I am undecided on whether to post this audio or not. The tape has us discussing what this could be and wasn't really meant to be shared. But they yells are unreal. Let me know if you think I should post it! Thanks.

Just plain strange.

OK guys, as most of you know, we get a good bit of activity  in our research area. Well, we have recently had some activity that has put a new spin on things.

My son has been telling us for weeks now that after we (Marty and i) go to bed,  something hits the side of the house then hits the roof right at his bedroom. His room is the only part of our home that doesn't have a fence around it. There is no tree anywhere near there so that ruled out anything jumping onto the house from the tree. I had also thought that it may be a stray cat going after the leftover dog food that is inside the fence. Marty set the trail cam up pointed in that direction. The first night, we caught nothing at all. The second night we had a strange white mist completely obscure the camera lens in one image in the next image there was nothing. This activity continued every night, yet we could not catch anything on the camera.

The weather is beginning to get warmer so our grandson is playing outside more. He wanted his pool filled, so Marty and  Chris got his pool out, cleaned it up and filled it with water.This pool sets just a few feet from where the night time noises happen.  The pool is on the inside of the fence and the noises are happening on the outside. The following few days were sunny and warm so our grandson was enjoying his pool. Every evening he would leave a few toys in the pool after he got through playing.One morning, Marty and I were outside on the porch, I looked over at the pool and most of the water was gone! The area around the pool was dry so we knew it wasn't a whole. And most of the toys had been taken out and placed near the pool on the patio. I immediately thought about the trail cam. It had been running! Marty took the card out and we went inside to load it on his computer. Something triggered it during the night, but there was nothing at all in the images. I could plainly see the pool, but the camera caught nothing. Now that's just strange in my book.

Strange Prints

These are some prints that we have recently found in our research area.
I have looked these up online and can't seem to find anything that compares to the size and shape.
I have shown these to a few avid hunters that can't tell me any more than "that is a big animal."

These prints measure 5 1/2 in length and 3 1/2 width.
Bear and cougar are not indigenous to our area.

Book Review

This was a book that I just couldn't put down. Now some of this seemed a bit far fetched and hard for me to believe. But if this truly happened it was an amazing story! I highly recommend this book for the Bigfoot enthusiast. It is very well written and a great Kindle price. You can find it on

Book Review

I downloaded this book to my Kindle a couple of weeks ago and I finally got time to read it.
I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the fact that Lori and her brother picked up where their father left off on his search for the elusive Bigfoot. It was awesome to read Mr Wallace's expeditions and thoughts on this creature. I would love to see a second book where Lori and her brother have continued their research.

This book in the kindle addition is a must read with the price being practically a give away. If you are at all interested in Bigfoot, I do recommend this book. You can find it on Amazon.

Thanks for a good read Lori.

This was a post that I originally posted to my personal Blog, I thought i would share it here as well.

Monday, January 19, 2015


I have been thinking about something these last few days. It has really weighed heavy on my mind and my heart. So I want to bring this out in the open and talk about it a bit. As most of you know, Cari and I had a bad encounter with what we think to be an aggressive Bigfoot. (If you don't know about this, check out my book.) It changed both of us completely, and changed the way we view our expeditions.Neither of us are comfortable in the woods anymore. And frankly, I don't know that we ever will be. It has been a year now and I still get apprehensive before an expedition, and I have to stay with a group of our team members.My next book will go into more detail of this, but you get the point. I had a bad Bigfoot encounter that scared me well beyond what anything ever has, and I am having a hard time pushing through this.In one week (It was sort of uncanny.) I  had two different people reach out to me with similar problems. Their stories had weighed heavily on both my mind and my heart.It has left me wondering just how many people have gone through this. When this happens, It changes everything you have ever thought. It shakes you to the very core of your being. And getting beyond that is near impossible.It is hard enough to accept that Bigfoot actually exist. And I am telling you right now, they do. But it's even harder when you have to accept that they may very well intend to kill you.There are so many questions with no answers.For you non-believers, It's perfectly OK to feel that way. We were all in your shoes at one point.A few years ago, I would have never thought that I would ever lay eyes on what I understood to be a Myth or legend. But I have since had the great blessing to actually see two. Why did I get to see them? That's another question that will never be answered.I replay these encounters over in my mind all the time. But it's the bad encounter that keeps playing like a broken recorder.I haven't had bad dreams from it. But I can't forget it. Each time we plane an expedition,I start to wonder how I'm going to handle it.
I'm going to ask now, if any of my readers have had a negative encounter please tell me about it. You can reach me at melissageorge143 I am just curious to how many people have seen the negative side of these creatures.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. And I can promise you, I am just as sane as you are. I have just had some experiences in my life that you may have yet to encounter.
