Bigfoot, Waterways, and Rainfall

"He always follows the creeks..."

That is a line from the 1972 Bigfoot movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. What makes it so special is that it's true.

I've researched Bigfoot for 6-7 years now, and one thing that is mentioned time and time again in reports, books, etc. is that the creatures seem to travel near water, which would make sense. A creature like Bigfoot would need to be close to water. It could help with traveling and they would need it to survive. A human trying to survive out in the wilderness would do the same thing.


Also on the subject of Sasquatch and water is the likelihood of sightings in areas with certain amounts of annual rainfall.

This correlation was first noted by legendary Bigfoot researcher John Green in his book Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us. After discussing Sasquatch sightings in relation to human populations and other things, he notes that:

"The map does show some correlation with a map of sasquatch sightings in North America is the rainfall map. It isn't by any means a perfect match, but there is a rough outline that fits. Where the annual rainfall is under 20 inches a year there are hardly any sasquatch reports. There is only one major exception to that rule, in western Montana, and three minor ones, north of Los Angeles, at the north end of Lake Winnipeg and in Alaska. Where the rainfall is over 20 inches there usually are reports, although up to now there are more exceptions on the wet side of the line than on the dry side. Why mankind's supposed need to imagine monsters should dry up when it doesn't rain much I will leave to someone else to explain."
To help prove Green's point, here is a map of the average annual precipitation in the United States...

Red is the least, green -purple is the most
And here's a map of sasquatch sighting areas in the United States & Canada…

Lighter is the least, darker is the most
There is some correlation here.

If some non-believer has an explanation why people commonly see "non-exsitent 'monsters'" in areas with lots of rainfall, I'd also like to hear it!

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.
