I hope you liked those pics Eric S. It took me awhile to get the upload correct.

I found it strange the only other tree on the ground was an old dead tree about five yards away. I think I could have pushed it over last year when it was upright. In one pic you can see another Cedar tree next to the one broken, and it was not damaged at all. I found it strange, and looked for hairs.

Last Saturday night I found myself listening to something by a large tree. I went, and sat down about five yards away and made soft wooping sounds. I did not get a reply, so I went back to camp. The dog would keep going over towards that tree, as the sounds would start up again. I don't know what it was, and at 0430hrs under a full moon things were strange.

Leatherneck - I only saw the one shot BT#3.
I didn't realize there were more.
In BT#4 it appears that there is a smaller tree behind the large one that is also snapped. Right?
The big tree dosen't appear to be rotted, so my guess is that it would take some strength to snap it.
Next time you're out bring some apples, and when you sit down - eat one and crush another one so that the scent can get out there. Leave a couple around the perimeter also for your guest. LOL

Note to self: Saturday night the 17th around 2300 hrs south of my position 800-1200 yards, some type of cat screams. The dogs up on the plateau barked a lot afterwards.

Around 0030hrs one hard tree knock heard by the wife, and I approx. 150yrds north of my position. We looked at each other, and wondered what that was. I did not signal with my large stick, because I expected more knocks, or a reply. Hinesight is 20-20.

The usual coyotes, and owls were heard. No tree markings, or footprints were seen in the creekbottom. No Bigfoot related pics to share.

Sounds like you had a cool night.
I didn't tell you that I had a trail cam set up by your camp.
Here's a photo I got off of it the other day-

Now, I know how Bigfoot broke that tree. I was thinking he did it with just his hands, and arms. Go figure. Perhaps, he gets bored out in the woods.

Note to self: Saturday the 27th a cold front came with wind, and rain. I stoped to check out the creek bottom, but the wife did not want to stay overnight.

We did go driving along the back roads around the area towards the lake. The area is vast, and wooded with a lot of vines.

12-23-2007

Camped out under a full moon with no clouds, or wind. Things were fairly quiet until 0400hrs. Coyotes, and Owls sounds were beautiful. Only one sound that I could not identify.

A long deep bodied howl. For me, the logical conclusion for the howl would be a Coyote. It was very strange, and my wife told me about how different she thought it was.

I bought a recorder. Then turned it on, placed it on a stump facing the creek bottom, and walked away. Returned 12-24-2007 morning to see how many individual recordings I had received.

The only recording I had was me sitting up the recorder. Everything else read low battery. Note to self: Bring batteries camping.

I agree 100%. Let me know when you are in your office. I will come by, and say hello.

I have more pics, but I have to down size them first. I have been trying for two days now.

This past weekend was very windy. I cleared fence line, placed some food on a stump, and set out a recorder. I did take some pictures of the creek bottom, but once again I am having trouble up loading anything above 150k.

Suggestions on up loading pics please.

If you are having trouble cropping or downsizing photos I use Paint Shop Pro it can reduce and save quality at he same time.

It has been a few weeks since I have been able to go to my southeast Oklahoma very rural farm to be. I had surgery.

But this past weekend I was back clearing fence line on this old 1940's fence that is mostly on the ground. Man, I love that fresh air, and woods. Is it work if you enjoy it?

I sat my recorder out on the stump with an apple Saturday evening as the sun was going down. Sunday morning I went to retrieve the recorder hoping the new battery's would work all night catching a lot of sounds. The apple was gone, and the recorder was gone too. I looked around, but found nothing.

Sunday afternoon while clearing more fence line, the wife told me she can see something in the woods. I asked her where, and she told me over there by the Cedar trees. I could not see anything, but asked her to not take her eyes off of the area while I went to look.

I did not go at a straight line, I went parallel for about 40 yards, then cut right to the Cedar trees. There was a creek just past the trees. I hunched down to get a better look, but could not see anything. Everything was quite. No birds, and I was a little nervous, because this is the first time the wife said she could see something.

Not wanting to go to far into the woods, and leave the wife, I returned. I asked her if I was at the right spot, and she said I was only half way. She told me she could not see it anymore, and it was probably a cow.

In my whole life, I have never heard of a sneaky cow. One you can not hear in the woods. A first for me. I don't think it was a cow.

I got an estimate on some bulldoze work Saturday afternoon. The old guy showed me tracks, and said they were hogs. Then he showed me how you can tell between hogs, and deer.

If I did not have to work for a living, I would be clearing fence line now.

What I have written is 100% true.

This is a Pine tree snapped in two. I stand about 6' with my boots on. There are other Pine trees around this one that appeared weaker to me. My wife, and I wonder what caused this.

This is an image of our first tree we found last year. It is a Cedar tree, not a pine tree like the images above.

I did a perimeter check this past Saturday on this 40 acre creek bottom land. It was the first time a complete search around was performed. There had been a good rain four days before, and I had hoped for prints to be found.

Only deer, hog, and possible raccoon prints were seen. My wife spotted an interesting print that appeared to have four claw like toes.

It was a small print about five inches long tapered in back with the claw/toes firmly indented into the damp soil. There was no real indentations of the pad to pour plaster into.

We looked for claw marks on trees, but there is a million trees. We did find remains of a calf around the area that we heard sounds two weeks prior. The bones were bleached, and appeared to have been there for some time.

There was one interesting highlight of my Saturday. It was just after twilight and I was getting some wood for the fire, I spooked something about five yards to my right, and it ran to my left. It sounded about the size of a large dog. My dogs were behind me to my right about twenty yards, so I do not know what it was. Deer?

At this point, these entry's are just my way of keeping up with what happens to me when I go to the field. The only images I have of Saturday are of me my wife took while on patrol. BFRO does not like the use of arms, so I will respect that, and not post any of those pics.

04-18-2008, went Sasquatch hunting under a full moon. I heard a lot of Owls, and Coyotes. There was around 0400hrs a strange cry/crys deep in the creek bottom. I suppose it was Coyotes, just not like any Coyote call I have heard.

I guess, I was hoping Bigfoot would get wind of the food I grilled, and come sit next to me. Perhaps, next time.

As I read this Discussion board, I pick up on actions that will help me capture a Sasquatch picture. This past weekend, I went to look for Bigfoot. To my disappointment, Sasquatch did not come out, say hi Mark, and say thanks for the apples.

Here are some pics from this past weekend. If any of you nice folks get into the jungle, the ticks are out in force.

Good morning everyone. It is Monday the 19th. The wife, and I went to southeast Oklahoma this weekend for the full moon, and to check our game cameras. It got cloudy around 2200hrs. I did not see the moon again.

If any of you nice folks have ever seen the movie The Weatherman, then you know how I was feeling.

The digital camera I sat out was down at the bottom of a game trail to the creek bottom. I found it with one strap gone, and the camera upside down. There were a few pics.

The other game cam is 35mm, and I will have the film developed soon.

We had a deer snort, Owls in the trees above us, a bat, and an army of coyotes. I did not see Sasquatch, but after reading some of the posts last week, I was just waiting for one or more to come by.

At 0435hrs,(I checked my watch), I felt uncomfortable. I built the fire up, and felt much better. I felt like bait there 20 yards from the creek bottom. The wife could not sleep at that time either. Between 0435hrs, and 0530hrs was a strange time for us. She thinks it was a parametric pressure change.

One of the pics is a snake, but you have to look at the log to see it. It is about the last third of a snake. The first pic is my jungle boot, so Eric S. can see what a boot looks like. Notice the bloused BDU.

Nice pic of a bcat...Have you thought about hanging one of those dog morsels from that other pic in the tree to lure other secretive mammals into the camera?
