Scott Carpenter: Bigfoot, Dogman, and More

Scott Carpenter is a blogger online(you can check out his blog here), and author of some books on cryptozoology, including The Bigfoot Field Journal and Dogman: The Monsters are Real. 

I'm going to be meeting Scott in September. I haven't read any of his books, but have looked at some of his online stuff. And, it always seems that he has some new photo of Bigfoot or a Dogman. In his latest post(as of right now, April 24, 2015) that was published on the 22nd, he claims to have filmed a bigfoot in a national park. The post before that: April 14th, he had a "gut feeling", and photographed a Bigfoot. The post before that: March 25th, he claimed to have, yet again, filmed a Bigfoot, this time in "stealth mode." Some researchers think Bigfoot can go into a stealth mode - virtually the ultimate camouflage. I can't find the stealth video on the YouTube search on Blogger, but you can watch it here. 

Now, I'm not saying here that Scott is a liar. I'm just saying that some of his stuff seems a little too good to be true. It seems that he sees a Bigfoot or Dogman every time he goes out into the woods. Maybe he is just the reseacher who thinks that every little sound in the woods is a Bigfoot. Seriously, if it was that easy to see them, everyone would, and they would have been "proven" to be real years ago. I would see one every time I go to areas where they're seen. I have gone to places, most notably Salt Fork State Park, where Bigfoots live. Have I ever seen a Bigfoot? No, I haven't.

Again, I'm not saying Scott fakes anything. I'm just saying he might turn things that aren't bigfoot or Dogman into a bigfoot or a Dogman. I'll have to get his books sometime, and I'm meeting him in September, so maybe my views will change.

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
