This past weekend I as on a bigfoot expedtion with with a friend of mine where we met a family livingin the upper Midwest of the U. S. that as had several sightings of two different Bigfoots / Sasquatches this past year. The most recent sighting was by their 4-year-old son just days before our expedition.
A Description of the Bigfoot Sighting
The boy was sitting in a pickup truck at dusk while his father was tending to a fire of burning brush at the back of their farm property, when the boy shouted, "There's a man over there!" The father couldn't see anybody over the bright glow of the fire and quickly walked to where his son was pointing. He saw nothing unusual and told his son to roll up the windows and lock the truck while he worked the fire.
Again the boy shouted, "There's a man right over there..." and when the father returned to where his son was pointing and saw nothing (the nearest farm is a mile away) and when he questioned the boy, the father realized it was another Bigfoot sighting on the edge of his property. This family has now seen at least two different Bigfoots roaming their land and forests four different times.
Researching Bigfoot in Cold Weather
While on our expedition of the property, we camped in nightly temperatures as low as 35 degrees and we began to wonder where Bigfoots hibernate in the coldest months of the year. Winter months are usually slow for Bigfoot research because there are so few snow tracks and almost no whoops or howls.
Many researchers believe Northern Bigfoot hibernate in caves (see video of eyewitness near Oregon caves), which got me working on a new theory (or a theory new to me) that maybe Bigfoots are actually a subterranean species.
Could Bigfoots spend a significant portion of their lives underground and only surface briefly when a few lucky people see them or capture glimpses of them on video? It would certainly explain why we don't see them during the coldest months in the most northern regions and it migth explain how they "vanish" so easily -- they know where the nearest cave entrance is, and we don't.
Possible Correlations to Bigfoot and Other Subterranean Species:
Bigfoots have "night vision": or can see a wider spectrum of light. This is true of other subterranean species and necessary in dark caves.
Eyeshine: might also be a way of communicating non-verbally in the darkness of caves. Is it friend or foe? The color of the eyes would tell a Bigfoot underground what's ahead.
Large eyes: recent thermal videos have shown the Bigfoots have large eye sockets and eyes, which is consistent with other species that live in the dark.
Strong oder from Bigfoots: This is usually described as "musty,earthy" or "skunky" which might correlate to the dank, wet environment of some caves.
Infrasound: this might create fear in humans but it might also be used as "sonar" underground to detect the depth of a crevice or the intricacy of a labrynth.
Whoops and howls: we hear these above ground and they might be a form of ecolocation to detect other Bigfoots who are on the surface or to use for hunting prey. Bats use ecolocation.
Mammoth Cave in Kentucky: an Ideal Home for Bigfoots
There are thousands of caves in North America and Mammoth Cave in Kentucky is the longest cave in the world with over 367 miles of passageways near the Green River. And all Bigfoot reseachers know that Kentucky, Ohio and Illinois have had Bigfoot sighting for many years.
A species like Bigfoot could live comfortably in caves like Mammoth Cave (or any other cave across North America) and only surface nightly to hunt and then return to cave during the day. Their daily routine might be more like bats who leave the cave at dusk to hunt and return before dawn.
Cave passageways would allow Bigfoots to travel to remote locations. See this video analysis of a Bigfoot on Prince Edward Island.
So if you want to work on my newest Bigfoot theory, start your next expedition by purchasing a map of the nearest cave.
