captainkillmore Thank you Jim, yes bf i actually got a kick from some of the posts over there and some i found on other sites, I did get my replies posted on crypt site and everything is copacetic now. I guess i let the argumentative side of me out , I couldn't help it , arguing is just part of my nature, family trait as it were. :cool:

johnmiic Hey all! I am getting to this thread somewhat late. This suggestion may run counter to what you want to do. I know you want them to leave you alone. If they only want the water-have you considered leaving a couple of large plastic buckets or some sort of trough for them to drink the water? Based on what you've been saying they seem to only want the access to the water. Perhaps this would be interpedted as an invitation or sort of approval for them to have the water. Maybe they would not make as much noise or slap the home trying to scare you away. You could also hang a very dark, opaque curtain over the window so they are not accidentally discovered drinking.

I mean this could be a great opportunity to observe them if they feel that place is secure for them to keep coming back for water. Still you want to reach some happy middle ground where if they freak you out so much you don't have to see them. The flip side is maybe you could have someone check the buckets for dna, hair samples or even finger/handprints on the buckets?

pragmatic Yes Johnmiic, you are just a little tardy! ;)
But just in case the Captain is reading this revived thread, I 'd like to ask him to add what I think is the best and definitely the scariest drawing he ever did. It's the one where the hair is black rather than red, and the red-rimmed and bloodshot eyes kinda look right into you. It's so realistic that you can imagine looking through your window at it, then having to reach for your defibrillator! And I've lost track of it.

In case there's no quick answer from CK, could someone who thinks they know the drawing I mean please set a link to it?

Scout Cap. Killmore

I agree with JimBean & BFRWanna. Keep up the posts and the great artwork. You truly do have an awesome talent. Your reports are awesome! Question do you have any dogs that run your property by the trailer? Thx

Leatherneck Capt., a full moon is coming up on the 22ed. Keep up the good work.

stubbymanno i searched the frag-cafe and what it is i'm looking for? i'm confused
February 24th, 2008 09:48 PM
Bossburg stubbymanno - this is a very old thread and Captainkillmore hasn't posted here for a long time (August '06). The frag-cafe was nothing to do with the forum, just his tag line.

captainkillmore Hi guys, havent been on in a while. I have most of the pics i did posted in an album on my profile here. I will post the one i did last of the bf looking in the window for you. No new real news here i have found two odd scat piles, and i mean piles here, large and dark , blackish brown and very large , bigger then my foot, reminds me of a cow pile but not as mushy. I havent had any visits over the winter at all , that seems to fall into my migratory thesis for the bf around here. We still havent had more then one day in a row over 55degrees yet and always raining here still. I expect to find some evidence or here about someone else having activity about the time the weather sets up warm and remains that way.If this is what happes, then it will follow suit like the last two yrs and i might be onto something. Ohyeah , the frag-cafe is a online gaming site for a star trek fps game i used to play alot, but the game is dying out , over 7 yrs old now.
May 14th, 2008 04:02 PM
this is close to what i saw in my window, the light only illuminates the shoulder and side of head for color.
May 14th, 2008 04:16 PM
captainkillmore I have posted the whole encounter and lots of my findings and theories before, they are all here in the archives somewhere for you if you can track them down. I have moved to a different home then where all this occurred, actually the new home is only a mile away but closer to neighbhor's homes and right next to a cemetary that is on the edge of a small rural farming ,community, maybe 60 residents in all in township, mostly elderly retired people. There is lots of woodland here and plenty of hiding places, abandoned homes and farms and water areas too. I have come to the conclusion that my experience was that i had challenged or irritated the male and he was trying to drive me away. I have set out recorders and camera traps , no pics yet but i have gotten some very interestng recordings, i have found "trail markers" and a few large bedding areas and foot prints along with the two mysterious scat piles i recently came across. I guess i had to take yr to stay in a place where i felt safe , i can't really explain it but i was too afraid to actually try and intvestigate the big guys . Now i seem , at least to me , a bit more ready to go out in the woods and do some real active invetigating. It must be the old "seeing a bf is great , as long as it isnt in my own backyard" kind of thing. Well , hello again guys and keep up the investigating, someone will eventually come across that undeniable evidence and it will eventually get out to the public { ;) } , we just need to keep trying.

wildmanmarty Thanks for the new post, CK. If I saw that thing staring in my window, I think I would have to change my pants.
May 14th, 2008 07:13 PM
Rachel L Captain K....just wanted to let you know that I've really enjoyed reading about your encounter and looking at your pictures. This new one...I think if I saw that face in real life I'd DIE. Or at least scream loud enough to wake the dead....probably break things and fall over furniture trying to get away! The BF would be having a good laugh I'm sure, it would be entertaining.

Bob Naranja Thanks CK & glad to see you back..

That Picture is great, he doesn't look to friendly though, he looks like something out of Metallica after a 12 month solid World Tour.. ;)
May 15th, 2008 04:38 PM
TRUTH-SEEKER Thanks again for keeping us updated captain. I must say, you are very good with a pencil...
May 16th, 2008 02:16 PM
Leatherneck Captain,

If you have a digital camera, could you up load a few pics of the area you go into?


May 17th, 2008 01:09 PM
PoconoSteve Captain,

I'll just reiterate what everyone else has said. Your efforts are EXTREMELY appreciated by all of us who anxiously await every picture or update you post. I realize that drawing the pictures must be very time consuming, but for those of us who have not had the fortunate experience of an up close encounter (or unfortunate, who knows?) they are like gold! Sure the film of Patty is nice, but your drawings give us a clue as to what these creatures really look like up close and personal. I'm sure it's something that even those of us who go out into the field regularly will never have a chance to see at such a close range and therefore it's priceless and we hope you continue to share w/ us.
May 17th, 2008 04:12 PM
chrisinalaska Thanks Cap! Great drawings...keep it up.
May 18th, 2008 12:27 AM
captainkillmore sure leatherneck, i have a lot of digitals of area, and i will try for a sat pic also , the sat pic from google earth really only shows nothing but trees and creeks and such but i will try to get one on here for you. I am going to have to make it minus the coordinates though , the landlord and the community for that matter , mostly retirees want their privacy protected.I am sure you all ubderstand, , thanks.
May 19th, 2008 12:08 AM
CKnaub Well greetings Captain! Long time no hear from you. Glad everything is OK. Not many of us from those days posting regularly like before, it's nice to see a "familiar face" on the board again. Hope to hear some updates as the weather changes. By the way, on one of your last posts you mentioned that you had a theory about them finding you at your new home, but you never elaborated. Can you fill us in?
May 19th, 2008 06:45 AM
captainkillmore Hi CK, well , all of my experiences here start in the spring, usually around the second week of really warm weather. Also , i plotted my trailer location on a map , along with this new homes and the state park 12 miles away where their have been sightings and such since the mid 70's til recently and there are two ladies whom have had sightings in the last yr both of whom live within 10 miles of this new home. Anyway , when i plot them all down on a map they form a line travelling form the southeast to the northwest, extending from the state game area to to sighting from a lady that occured last september.iTHINK i have stumbled on a "trail" , where the bf's are probably wintering in the state game area , and then start travelling northeaserly along this trail in the spring and thru the summer and early fall , probably for better foodstuffs and such , there are also 3 seperate apple orchards , if i count one that just sold out and trees were removed 2 yrs ago , 4 if count an orchard that closed in the early 90's. All these points on a map lie in a line , not a perfect ruler line for those detractors out there, but a wavy , or 2-5 mile wide corridor if you will extending for 25 miles . That is just thru plotting sightings , tracks and such that i know about and including all apple orchards in the two county area i am referring to.I know just including orchards and only the stuff i know about is probably stretching it , but i am just relaying info i have come up with here. I am theorizing that the bf's locally here winter somewhere southerly and probably in state protected area where there is strict no hutning and target practicing out of season , then travel this " corridor" during the warmer months for foraging and such. To add even more weight , where i am located , central /southernmost part of michigan, is part of what once was the great northern forest in this country , and this part of the state is still very rural and still full of many stands of forest and small woodlands. most of the suburban and more settled areas of the state are the shorelines near chicago and detroit and then north near the bridge, 40 mioes inland everywhere else is quite wooded and full of farmlands and many orchads statewide. I include this for many of you out there who think this whole country is covered in pavement and that there is only small tracts of true overgrown land left, it is opposite to be true.But anyhow, that is my theory for here and some history and description to help you guys out in understanding how i came up with it. Good ady guys and keep searching! :D

wildmanmarty Captain, my grandfather had a cherry orchard near Traverse City in the 50s. Are you anywhere near that general area?
May 23rd, 2008 11:40 AM
captainkillmore Nope, i am near the indiana and ohio borders.At the bottom of the state but my wife has relatives in Big Rapids and we go there a couple of times a yr. We are going to go up there soon as a mater of fact , hopefully w can get out into the woods, lots of reports come from around there.

Hey Marty! I live near Traverse City - Lake Ann. Was your grandfather's orchard out on Old Mission peninsula or was it more towards the Leelanau peninsula?

I'm trying to find some decent places around here to squatch. I am checking out the Interlochen area right now. This whole area seems to be pretty promising: Lots of water, lots of hills, lots of thick forest...

If anyone knows any hotspots in the TC area, I would be much obliged.

Oldfattylumpkin Hi CK,

Glad to see you back,
We haven't met, but Ive read your posts for a while.
I've just came back from the MI UP Exp that was held last week end. Had a blast. Just ask tkimball, he was there also.
I Even had a class B encounter myself in a form of a howl on SAT night.

I met two of the investigators that you mentioned, EL and F.
great guys.
We talked a little bit about you story. vary interesting discussion.
I hope to get down to your area soon to do some Squatching myself. since I live in Clinton County its not too far.

Well I guess I'm rambling. I tend to do that.

Any way good to have you back.

-David D-

paddletothesea Thanks for the picture. You're a very good artist. Best picture of BF I've seen in a long time...its about time!
Its looks extremely like the one I saw in the 70's except the hair was more ratty and matted.

Here's probably a bigger mystery than BF himself: We have how many people on here that have saw one? Hundreds-thousands? Why are there not more drawings like this? SOmething this obvious -how have we become so clueness as not to have evevyone draw a photo? It will help in the long run.
Off to the drawing room to submitt my pics.
I hope the rest to the same.

Sorry, Tom, the last time I was there was over 40 years ago, so I am not familiar with the area.
May 27th, 2008 03:53 PM
tkimball No worries, Marty. Thanks!!

Concerning the UP expedition:

David is so right about the UP expedition. Based upon some of the things I have read and heard, other expeditions might be a let-down after the UP. We saw, heard, and experienced so much, it was just an amazing trip.

captainkillmore Hey Lumpkin , how were the guys , i haven't hard from E in a while i have new e-mail addy ,i will shoot an e-mail to him i think. I think you guys might have gone up there a bit early this yr , it sounds like you hada great expedition tho , i would bet tho , if the bfs, behave the same as they do lower in the state , around here for instance , then they are much moreactive after the weather goes into summer mode and the berries start popping, and mushroooms and asparagus and such , early june, late may , i have a hypothesis going about the big guys having certin "safe " winter areas and that they leave them in spring thru late fall and then return to them for winter again. If my hypo holds any water , specifically for those around here , then they would just be getting out for the season now and you guys might have just been able to experience the early rovers or the possible ones whom stay in that area year round. I think it would be interesting to have two expeditions in same yr up there , one in early -mid may , then go again during end of july or mid august , and compare the results, if later one turns up more , then that might fall into the winter grounds and summer grounds idea. Just a thought.
