Coaching +Squatchin = “Squoaching” Process: A Success

Posted: September 3, 2011 in Uncategorized

Below is an excerpt from a conversation that started here on Treepeekers and has in it the process of which “Paul” and myself figure out where, what & how …
This could be YOU if you want it too! I can coach anybody willing to take the risks and maybe loose a little sleep but check it out… comments are welcomed.

ILLINOIS

Hey Freeman, i’m about to begin my in the field research for this master of the woods. And i was wondering where to begin. I have narrowed it down to 2 locations. One is a low land area surrounded by 2 small rivers(islandish-there is no hunting allowed in this area), And the second one is in a much more mountainous region (a wildlife reserve). It is much more remote than the “island” and much harder to navagate around. Any suggestions? Tips?

August 11Freeman Young
which quadrent are you in…west or east of 87 north or south of 92..?
+ what county?
scratch that I found it… SO i’d say tryCo Rd 12 > fox rd >@ N. pheasant ridge lane… seems to be a trun out there on the right as you go north.. Those woods outta give ya some action… anywhere along the water shed of East lake north of town looks promising…AND how good at nocturnal are ya? do ya have night vision? and have ya done this before?

August 11Freeman Young
take the easiest first and see what happens… try not to look like you’re looking for them being a “dumb hiker” is a good cover and try to keep your thoughts on anything NOT BF… like girls or cars or what ever cz they’re always watching and 10,000X smarter than ya may think… IF you can take your time and IF you are by chance CLOSE say with in 200 yards they may just watch(peek) at ya and NOT let on at all… the other thing that’s ‘Normal” is that the first few times they may not be used to humans looking for them that’s why the dumb hiker routine will get you in close.. don’t try knocking or howling that’s a waste of time and only lets them know you know they’re out there best tech is to play dumb and be ti chi in your movements quite as possible and leave a fruit gift… think your communication to yourself.. if ya get close and get scared just speak softly to them like a child or a rowdy horse or any other wild animal kind gentle tones is optimal stand your ground if ya get any intimidation tactics like anything that starts or scares ya…Think “HI I have just as much right to be here as you!” this will be within the ‘Law of the Woods” and just be easy going sweet and even playful… approach is everything

August 11Freeman Young
just looked again after posting in Treepeekers… You have a number of hot spots in your town should be easy….

August 11Paul
Thank you for the tips! I have learned, howls and knocks hasn’t worked since the first night they found me in my woods. I have been leavin them peanut butter, or garlic in a spot every now n then for about 6 weeks now. Havent seen one… Ive been in my woods 5 for so times at night, the canopy is so thick there is no light.(no night vision or thermal…yet) I swear i can hear them breathing some times. and the roads u named off… im literally in the middle of all those roads, you found the woods im in. Today im going 2 try singing a little

August 11Paul
i cant see more than 50 yards through the woods. It feels almost like a jungle even. Tall green n thick
Im learning new things each time i step into the forest…
-Also im already prepared to accept pissing my pants the first time i see one, it will probably be closer than i’m expecting

August 11Paul
I was told by a BFRO guy that they may migrate out of IL, what do you think?

August 11Freeman Young
lets find out! I had that sort of conversation with Jack too… He lives in minna tonka
I saw sign and he said no way

August 11Paul
If they did.. i think they would be moving around the middle of September from here, Maybe to Shawnee Forest, or the Hills of Kentucky
to places very hard to reach by humans
n hide out for the hunting seasons?

August 11Freeman Young
not to hide out to get to a milder climate
there’s another side of town where they com in to the neighborhoods SE side
and along the green belts … they are for sure cruisin your hoods at night

August 11Paul
that woods is young, very dark n thick though

August 11Freeman Young
yeah they’re there for sure

August 11Freeman Young
the head waters of the lake is good too

August 11Paul
Look at vernor lake, thats the woods im in, i didnt know it was the largest in the area

August 11Freeman Young
co Rd 11 00 seems to paralel their turf
1100

August 11Paul
i see

August 11Freeman Young
yeah that spot your in is perfect
just like spotss out here in cali
water woods back yards
golf corses
just like here
they’re in there right under everyones noses

August 11Paul
im not sure how im ever going to see them… hopefully the trust builds up

August 11Freeman Young
yeah it’s best with night vision monocular
350 on sale for 125-50
when they think you can’r see them they still naturally tree peek but more less come out in the open hiding in plain site
that’s how I’ve had my prolonged exposer
handing the NV back and forth with folks taking our time cz they hide in plain site at night
day time too just a lot stealthier
thermals are great but expensive and don’t focus so great

August 11Paul
what store could i get a NV Monocular

August 11Freeman Young
any hunting sport shop
night hunting
they always come curiously close if ya can have a group not tuned in to sas just out in the woods
women & children are interesting to them
mostly it’s early in the am 1-daybreak that I have the most action
that’s their time
if ya find a daytime hang out you’l get a intimidation whole tree crashing or LOUD as a 50 ca. knock
something shocking
no mistaking it for anything else than VERY BIG & STRONG

August 11Paul
i had a whistle outside my house one late night the past week, freakishly loud

August 11Freeman Young
yep they got your ID!
ok well it won’t be long then til you have an encounter… that was a “hey come out and Play!”
what time was it

August 11Paul
it was close to 3 am, i just got back at 2 am from out in the woods

August 11Freeman Young
ha ha they followed you home!

August 11Paul
i was scared to go next to my windows the rest of that night

August 11Freeman Young
is there woods near or next to your house?

August 11Paul
im about half a mile from the woods i mess around in

August 11Freeman Young
do you mind giving me you adress I can figure out from here
that’s nothing

August 11Paul
I live on vernor lake

August 11Freeman Young
ok then you live with them
you are on they’re ancient territory
ok weel they can and will be in your yard at night 3 am for sure
honet suckle or the other side

August 11Paul
i bet they stand across the road in the pinetrees

August 11Freeman Young
yep

August 11Paul
along south side of the golf course

August 11Freeman Young
ok
that creek back in there is home
behind the dam
that where these pics are from?

August 11Paul
all of em

August 11Freeman Young
yeah hot spot

August 11Paul
im not sure what side they would be on in the creek, i think they get on both sides when i go into the woods

August 11Freeman Young
there’s a series of woods that follow the water shed north of the golf course
both certainly
you may even walk right past them
you ever hear cracks in the day? do you go in the day

August 11Paul
yes the mostly at 7 pm-10 pm

August 11Freeman Young
evning and you’re not getting class B’s?
besides the whistle

August 11Paul
o yeah, they throw bones, and stones around me when im leaving
only when i leave though

August 11Freeman Young
that’s what you and Bob were dicussing
right

August 11Paul
whos Bob?
on your site?

August 11Freeman Young
sasquatchsounds.com wacommented on treepeekers?sn’t that you he

August 11Paul
yeah its me

August 11Freeman Young
Bobs my buddy from TX we road tripped together durring FBFB movie shoot

August 11Paul
i see
the best class b i think ive herd was one trying to sound like the 4 wheeler

August 11Freeman Young
nice those BF are amazingly good imataters
impersonaters
they do mechanical sounds a lot

August 11Paul
havent found any poop yet, but i think they may do it in the creek
just felt like something they might do

August 11Freeman Young
sure hair is a better DNA sample
barb wire or fencing sticker bushes
their hair is very close to ours
would seem human if ya found some

August 11Paul
any specific things i should look for in the Monocular?

August 11Freeman Young
one that has both IR and just night vision
it’s gotta be able to see deep in to the dark places like day time
one eye has to stay in this lighting or you’ll be blind with out it
so monocular works best

August 11Paul
i see
in the day time, should i sit in one place, or always move? little of both?
alright im going to get ready. Ill go on a hunt for a monocular tomorrow

August 11Paul
Just got back… Disappointing night, its just hard to tell whats real and whats being mimicked. eh maybe they will swing by my house tonight, i really should stop expecting to glimpse one

August 11Freeman Young
yeah until you get NV you’ll be wishin
you had them
I’m watchin a bad monster movie about BF in ohio the kills people and eats the organs

August 11Paul
tomorrow! ill go to a Larger city n look for one at gander mountain or something, might have to go on the e-net for it

little more expensive, but it is literally absolute black in my forest

August 11Freeman Young
yeah this is a good one

August 11Paul
thats the one i have my eye on

August 11Freeman Young
nice it will rock your world

August 16Paul
Do you think the difference between Bigfoot and human may be as simple as Night and Day? If you can see what i’m getting at here.

August 16Freeman Young
yeah I do

August 16Freeman Young
they have not forgotten what we were intentionally cut off from… basically who we think we are. who we’ve been and who we will be

August 16Paul
They chose Night, and we chose day
im just thinking a million years ago or so, in that kind of way, I am not wanting to insult your beliefs in anyway, if this offends you.

August 16Freeman Young
no offense you’d have to really try and be jerk to offend me!
even then i’d probably laugh anyway

August 21Paul
just got back from the walbash river, saw some cool signs

August 21Freeman Young
Yeah Cool signs… anything new & unusual?

August 21Paul
i looked at a few small islands out in the middle of the river, found piles a muscle shells, could be racoons though
a train runs parallel to the east side of the river

August 21Freeman Young
no racoons don’t make piles only of shit… they kill and eat right away
that’s all groovey
tracks high up twists?
barriers?

August 21Paul
west side is very hilly , kind of like the hills Kentucky

August 21Freeman Young
steep?
thick brush?

August 21Paul
yeah, be a good workout to climb those leafy hills

August 21Freeman Young
yeah that’s how it is here it’s all steep and shrowed in poison oak &stickers can’t get in there til another month or two
then i’m in
did ya see my latest post?
treepeekers?

August 21Paul
worst thing in my woods right now is spider webs and itch weeds
i dont think so

August 21Freeman Young
chiggers? ticks? spiders? snakes
yeah… oh those too
no stickers huh?

August 21Paul
yeah briars are all through the woods

August 21Paul
its been 3 times in a row so far, back in my woods i keep hearing what sounds like children talking, mostly a girl

August 21Freeman Young
probably a teeny bopper.. like grade school squatch they are loud and make a lot of mistakes
they’re just like our kids, love to rough around and play sound very similar to our children
is it squeeling kind of sounds or exotic bird sounds?

August 21Paul
i just barley hear this, the best i can describe it is just small girl… I had one fire up a motorcycle around 30 yards away from me. i dont know who he thinks he was fooling

August 21Freeman Young
fun more later

August 28Paul
Had my first class A yesterday- 6pm at around 200 yards. out of camera range, but sketched what i could see through my binoculars for about 30 minutes. I pretty sure he was just sleeping or lounging. he didnt move much they whole time

August 28Paul
the* whole time
also this was the first and only day i forgot my memory card from my phone

August 28Freeman Young
congrats how’d it feel? what are you left with?

August 28Paul
I mostly felt relieved when i realized what it was. pulse increased, then SUPER pissed i didnt have my memory card with me
but i just watched him for 20 minutes our so through my binoculars

August 28Freeman Young
yeah frustrated but happy

August 28Paul
didnt move from his spot, just waved a leaf he was holding every now and then

August 28Freeman Young
did iy notice you were there

August 28Paul
if it did it didn’t care. just lounged up against a tree

August 28Freeman Young
facing away or side ?

August 28Paul
i sketched on a noetpad his posture, and colored it in when i got home, u can look at in my pictures

August 28Freeman Young
what else did ya notice as you watched?

August 28Paul
behind a log against a tree
very wide wider than i was expecting, he was a male

August 28Freeman Young
how did you come to that?

August 28Paul
no tits

August 28Freeman Young
you saw it full body top half?

August 28Paul
i couldnt see his legs and how they were bent, he was behind a full ground tree that fell over some time ago
Grown*

August 28Paul
i have found were they stay through the day now, im glad decided to scope it out from my binoculars before going in there

August 28Freeman Young
you betcha he was facing looking over something… they are never alone there’s always more
if you don’t want them to move you have to keep your respectful distance plus they are not very friendly when “disturbed!
they might move anyway they usually move about in an area

August 28Freeman Young
have a few haunts for daytime shade water and quite
the angle of you picture is that howe it was the whole time
waving that branch?

August 28Paul
yeah always facing north
yeah he would fan that leafy branch every now n then

August 28Freeman Young
did he look at you ever?

August 28Paul
i never saw him staring at me, but his eyes were very dark, i couldnt see them

August 28Freeman Young
right no whites

August 28Paul
what got my attention was his leaves on his branch were allitle more yellow than the other leaves around him. He was holding the branch where the sun was shooting though the trees

August 28Freeman Young
yeah he was a part of the security. he was signaling otheout yours ab
others about you

August 28Paul
shoulders shined white in the sun
brown on the top of his head

August 28Freeman Young
yes
what else
posture?

August 28Paul
shoulders seem to roll forward
and they were about a foot wide

August 28Freeman Young
yeah they do a lot of push ups!

August 28Paul
arms looked like they were 5-6 feet long

August 28Freeman Young
yep 60% body length

August 28Paul
i didnt think they would grow that big here
easy 9 foot tall

August 28Freeman Young
why?

August 28Paul
i didnt even know what color they were here until yesterday

August 28Freeman Young
what color

August 28Paul
he was black
but his hair on his head was brown/auburn

August 28Freeman Young
short or long hair what skin color

August 28Paul
his face was black, but seemed to have a dull shine to it
i could see through his hair
so i dont think it was thick

August 28Freeman Young
did you hear any of the little girl sounds

August 28Paul
not that day

August 28Freeman Young
any knocks whistles

August 28Paul
i dont remember hearing anything specific of that day
i did here very very soft knocks above me on top of the hill
mostly in taps of 3

August 28Freeman Young
yes like a imitation of a woodpeker only sort of bigger

August 28Paul
i need to draw about the hill they roam on

August 28Freeman Young
if ya go back there what can you offer them..?

August 28Paul
curving hill, has an underwater sping on it, or something causeing water to ooze from it

August 28Freeman Young
yeah that’s why at the end of summer I’m finding them around the springs too

August 28Paul
i left 2 apples by a very obvious criss-cross stick structure

August 28Freeman Young
good
see how long they sit!
they may have and maybe out side your house watching right now

August 28Paul
yeah its getting that time

August 28Freeman Young
ever get a feeling like a scanning elctromagnetic wierdness ?
while at home at night
or out in the forest

August 28Paul
well
i take the dogs out at 2am or so every night
sometimes there is an unusual feeling in the air
but i wouldnt know what to call it

August 28Freeman Young
ever ‘talk to it? the dark out there?
try it sometime just speak you thoughts as if someones listening
and see what happens
ask it if it hears you

August 28Paul
i see

August 28Freeman Young
be like your praying or speaking to a child
sweet soft mtones

August 28Paul
i bought a xylophone a while back, i havent tried it out yet
i think i am going to wait till my night vision gets in

August 28Freeman Young
yeah that could interest them but I’m pushing for aknowledgment.. you aknowledge them watching you when you feel it
i do it every time
does that seem funny?

August 28Paul
i brought a friend with me a week ago, and that night he said he would stay till after dark.
about 15 minutes after dark we heard a motorcycle fire up about 20 yards away from us
that was prolly the first time i knew for a fact they were there

August 28Freeman Young
there was NO MOTOR CYCLE RIGHT!

August 28Paul
the hike back to my house was a long one
unless someone was riding one in our woods

August 28Freeman Young
was there tracks?
was it there ahead of you? did it sound like a chain saw

August 28Paul
they dont walk in open mud
i have seen where they have cut through vegitation
and there is a trail on the top on the hill that is very padded down

August 28Freeman Young
when they use an area they make it smooth no tracks just soooth and clean/clear
they make ‘sitting pads” spots where they sit or sleep
hang out
there’s usually a few different sises
and it’s like a ‘pad’

August 28Paul
so, what do i do next?

August 28Freeman Young
what do you want?

August 28Paul
i think night time survey is the next step

August 28Paul
it will be delivered by sept10
i just hope they dont roam away

August 28Freeman Young
how far away was this place from you home

August 28Paul
around a mile to the woods and a mile through the woods

August 28Freeman Young
i’m a bit closer here
but that’s close enough at night the!
right outside
so how has this affected your life?
is it like wow it is real or somethibg else

August 28Paul
umm
i always felt it was real, but i had this overwelming goal to prove it to myself
now that i have, i have to find the next step
and it feeling like finding them would be easy compared to finding out what they acually do at night

August 28Freeman Young
ok you ponder that one! it’ll happen organically eventually… there’s more to where it leads… this pathe we’re on…
sasquatch is not about what people think it’s about it’s entirely a suprise,,,..

August 28Paul
after spending so much time in the woods, im starting the think that call of the wild thing is real
like there is a piece of me left out in the woods
but I cant find it since humans have moved so far away from it
What are they about? Family i suppose
Im going outside for a bit, going to search for that feeling

August 29Freeman Young
Now that’s what I’m talkin about!

August 30Paul
takin the video recorder out, try to show you all the good stuff. Not sure where im going to post it at though

August 30Freeman Young
upload on youtube and send me the link easy

September 1Paul
Found a really interesting place yesterday

September 1Freeman Young
yes and

September 1Paul
connected to the woods ive been searchin in, let me google earth it
closer to town but, by an old damn built on the creek behind my woods
Its an ancient damn that was built back there
DAM***!

September 1Freeman Young
Beaver?

September 1Paul
nah its man made, about 100 years ago
nature has done taken it back over

September 1Freeman Young
nice and way no mans land?

September 1Paul
closer to town than where ive been searching

September 1Freeman Young
is it always holdig water?
ok Be certain that you don’t chase them back into he woods they don’t like that

September 1Paul
o yeah basically a trap for fish. i seen hundreds of carp surfacing

September 1Freeman Young
approach slowly
they like
I would go to the edge and listen and send your thoughts asking if they are around and even bring something to make small little clicks or snaps with
just to feel them out like theydo when they move around at night sharp yet small
i carry small rocks to make sure I always have the sound if need sometimes you can’t find one in nature
it’s an old indian way as well to knock rocks before entering into a new area of the woods

September 1Paul
when me n my friend where there around 8 pm last night
just watching all the fish surface by the damn
dam…

September 1Freeman Young
yeah you heard a single little snap click pop?

September 1Paul
we heard one “pow” that sounded like someone unloaded on a tree with a baseball bat
almost gun shot loud

September 1Freeman Young
OH OK that’s a warning to all squatch around HUMANS

September 1Paul
across the dam on the other side
is there an easy way i can send ya gps

September 1Freeman Young
yeah that’s was intimidation tactic #1
the next thing would be either more from diffrernt sides or CRASH like the whole tree came down?
yeah laughinsquatch@gmail.com
it shows me as “Joey Shmoey

September 1Paul
well i thought we were getting thrown at, but my friend just said it was nuts from trees

September 1Freeman Young
it’sme tho

September 1Paul
seem to always fall behind us

September 1Freeman Young
oh no it was nuts from trees thrown by them
yeah as they wiz over you

September 1Paul
here, just foolow the creek behind my woods south until you get to grassmann park
if you follow the water you should see the damn

September 1Freeman Young
I remember seeing it when I looked before that whole water shed belongs to them

September 1Paul
would you say one family is in the area?
or we talking a tribe?

September 1Freeman Young
always a clan or pod they do have a tribal structure and they are organised more than people expect
they are not dumb apes they are 10,000 X;s smarter than us in many ways
the above video is the place I was the other night.. there’s a few coned heads and some watching in the trees and on sways out and back on the hill I didn’t see any of it in reak time I just knew they were there sort of like you yesterdasy

September 1Paul
i got my video taken, i found a path where something walked through about 4 foot tall grass
around 3-4 between steps
my camera died before i could film followin it
i havent even watched my video yet

September 1Freeman Young
try bringing apples or something to give away and don’t be suprised if they sit for a time
ha ha that happens to me too just after the battery dies sqautch runs out
man that happens too much!
i hear hard candy is good
people who are fans wrote me and said they saw all knds in my vids and as always I just shoot I on’t see them when I’m shooting but then I see later I’m short sighted to their advantage

September 1Paul
my cookies didnt last lomg, but many things could eat cookies

September 1Freeman Young
gota go more later good ok good make sure ONLY sqautch can take them it’s takes enginuity
to get it out of other critters attempts
I found a paper bag hung high is best
when they take it either they empty it and rehang or it vanishes
this is how you know for certain it was them Racoons won’t carry off a bag!

September 2Paul
There are large power lines running parallel to fox river, i got to find out where they go too/through

September 5Paul
cold front just came through. 60-70s all this week, will this change their movements/activities?

September 5Freeman Young
nope should be happier! easy to find tracks if it gets wet

September 5Paul
ight, night vision should get here before the 12th

September 5Freeman Young
nice I had Eyeshine all night sat
whole group
watching from 100 yds

September 5Paul
i went to the ambaras river this weekend
had a blast walkin up and down the middle of the river, since it was so low

September 5Paul
i wish i could go to college for what im doing now, and make it a career for myself

September 5Paul
wow, there was a group of Amish folks by my campsite on saturday
with horses of course

September 5Freeman Young
yeah

September 5Paul
i had a different felling when i looked into the woods that night
feeling*

September 5Paul
Just watched a few of your Videos on youtube. I can understand what you mean by tunnels now. But the main similaritys that I see between our locations is the “stacking” of Human barriers, pursuit of perfection in hiding, and maybe helped me solve the meaning of a few of my stick break/stuctures

September 5Paul
see the long sapling trailing off to the left, connected to the Totem? Look like an Arrow?

23 hours agoFreeman Young
what you had was a what I call “SCHOOLING”
the big one was showing the little one a human in thier area that’s aware of them who you are what yopu are like
this is a common phenomena
sometimes theres a bunch of them

23 hours agoPaul
the little shine was a different color though

23 hours agoFreeman Young

23 hours agoPaul
i thought it had a blue tint to it

23 hours agoFreeman Young

now i think i see how they move around my neighborhood. sneakin from dock to dock
track free, well today is the first day its rained for a few weeks, so im going to head out in the woods n see whats happening

Freeman: When it has rained, after or during, you may find tracks on the pavement or in the middle OR along the sides of say a bike or golf walking paths… the streets where they cross and the soft spots will usually give a little foots ‘mistake’ take photos with a ruler or a shoe or something to get a visual on comparison…

HERE’S ONE FROM OHIO:

Thank you so much for liking my post I read your blog extensively from beginning to end and you truly do have great insights on squatching and have inspired me to do some researching in the future,also I was so inspired …to go out today and search for signs of sustainable habitat in the forest behind my house about a 1/3 mile into the woods up on the hill and by god ! I found A tree/stick structure,2 possible prints,A small fresh water source, plenty of food sources(game&deer tracks),black and rasberries(all the ripe ones are missing!)tree breaks and may have had an encounter with an actual squatch tree peaking and investagating me and the other person I was with after doing some daytime tree-knocks I think we may have peaked the big fellas interest and he decided to follow and observe us. I would love to speak with you personally and discuss some things I have to do to become a better soldier in the fight to prove that this majestic beast truly exists if you would like to contact i would be exstatic and look forward to hearing from you or anyone at facebook/findbigfoot,…by the way there are great places to go squatching here in Ohio especially in the area i live in!

July 20Freeman Young
AWESOME! way to go! this is exactly what I’m talking about!

July 20T.j.
yeah I’m truly thinking about starting a bfro. I just need to find work so i can buy the right equipment-I wish they had a musician’s friend magazine for squatching equipment then I could probably afford to get a flir and some other things.

July 20Freeman Young
Just make recordings of what you hear! It’s easier for sure and a great way to break in

August 30 Freeman Young
hey hows the squatchin been

August 30T.j.
haven’t had the oppurtunity bin the last few weeks and I think the group I was tracking moved on about 15-20 miles south. a buddy of mine had a sighting a few days ago,and I think they couldve migrated to where he spotted one easily without having to encounter too much rural area

August 30Freeman Young
there’s more than that around I’d bet there’s a pod in your area and one in his… you’d have to go out and feel into it…

August 30Tj
I thought about that I havent been up on the hill in almost a month so I think I might take a trip up there real soon we’ve had a lot of rain lately so I might be able to find some tracks.

August 30Freeman Young
yeah you might… your in Ohio ..

August 30T.j.
my mother said she put a bag of apples way up in a tree about twelve feet and it was knocked down and the apples were gone she just told me this!
on the hill behind my house

August 30Freeman Young
yeah like i said 20 miles is another pods territory! they’re waitin for you!

August 30T.j.
yeah im in ohio
Yeah its just so hard for me to go out myself I don’t know how i’d react in a close encounter with them alone,and its hard to find fellow enthusiasts within my group of friends most of them look at me like im crazy,but I know theres always skeptics
but I come from a family of believers

August 30Freeman Young
do you have a dog? that’s what I use he’s very good he can hear them talking before or instead of me I watch him he always knows where they are before I do and I keep him in tight so he doesn’t become they’re snack..

August 30T.j.
I have a small shitzu,don’t think she’d be an Ideal squatchin partner cuz she’s not good on a leash.but it’s an idea,I need to work on getting a good vid recorder,I have great audio equip.but I want video.

August 30Freeman Young
ah don’t worry about trying to get the shot you won’t… get a night vision and enjoy observing them when they think you can’t see them much more rewarding

August 30T.j.
I havent tried the audio so maybe I should go out and see if I can catch some chatter.

August 30Freeman Young
yeah for sure that’s a much more probable success video… well it’s a very challenging ordeal to get them .. you gotta shoot from the hip not holding it or it’s like you have a gun pisses them off some fool got clocked over the head after chasing them around in the space they hang durring the day never saw it coming woke up hours later in the woods with a big ass bash on his skull… a word to remember.. they are top of the food chain and we are in they’re domain of which they are the masters not we.

August 30T.j.
thats good advice because I’ve always thought they were not confrontational,almost like deer more afraid of than we are them

August 30Freeman Young
only until you become arrogant human…. humble respectful human is welcome… idiot human not

August 30T.j.
thats also why im sketchy to be alone, now that you’ve told me that,I probably wouldve went out arrogant

August 30Freeman Young
i have a guy in so. il that I’ve been coaching here and he had his first class A yesterday with binocs @ 200 yards… that’s the way to do it
just go alone bu not too far FEEL into the woods and LISTEN with every fiber… pay attention to the FIRST sensation and you intuition no second guessing it the very first subtle que.. and proceed like that you’ll find a whole new way of being
and they will aknowledge you as you approach them this way
they will check you out when you don’t even know it
they may or probably already have & do

August 30T.j
I feel that they have

August 30Freeman Young
bring a gift toys or fruit meat
raw not cooked and leave it talk to them tell the ’empty forest’ that it BF gift

August 30T.j.
theyre curious about the fires we have in our back yards

August 30Freeman Young
other animals respect the ‘boss’ and stay away fro m the offerings
use your deeper gifts and see if ya get excelent results look way over there thewy will be at the edge of however far that you can see is from 40 to 200 yards depending on cover
yeah they are afraid of forest fires

August 30T.j.
thats what got my attention to them we were having a fire and I saw several sets of eyeshine

August 30Freeman Young
that’s a big concern this time of the year here too
eye shine what color

August 30T.j.
bright yellow and green
almost reflecting the flames

August 30Freeman Young
what about a set of almost flashlight looking amber
like head lamp big or bright
with little greeeny blue ones around the sides?

August 30T.j.
yes exactly only they werent large almost squinted

August 30Freeman Young
yeah what ya have there is what I call ‘school’ the one big one ‘teacher is like auntie or uncle and they bring the kids over to teach about humans
the little ones were all the other lights
may be a few feet away but basically a group

August 30T.j.
thats funny cuz they were right behind a jr. high school!lol!

August 30Freeman Young
yeah that’s tipickle

August 30T.j.
big cliffs behind the school and a house a few hundred yards away in the middle of the woods

August 30Freeman Young
wel sounds like you are in good shape to go out by yourself no intmidation crashes or scarry knocks that sound like shot guns so I wouldn’t worry too much they see you before you see them if you do it will be at a distance for a second or two IF they want you to
they move like the wind always swaying in & out of view so you’l think “did I see that? did that really occur
that’s how they always do it
don’t second guess
intuitive is where it’s at
did i see that YEAH I DID CZ I FEEL IT TOO and now at that moment/place you KNOW IT!

August 30T.j.
I think in the next few days i’m gonna look for a set of binocs and take the audio and see if I can’t catch a peek…thats what the amber set was doing swaying back and forth behind the trees

August 30Freeman Young
i asked myself that so many times even ran out of the forest just to turn right around and disbelieving my own fright ‘that didn’t happen’
go right back in daring them to do that again CRASH
ok it’s real
have ya check my latest from the other night in my blog?

August 30T.j.
i took a quick peek yesterday but theyre was so much going on in my house that i really didnt get to read much I was planning on checking it out tonight sometime

August 30Freeman Young
sure when ever it was an epic evening… I’ve been NOT going out as of late trying to get them missing me and it worked! they ALL came out to say hellow. first time they ever played like that

August 30T.j.
thats awesome can’t wait to read about it!

August 30Freeman Young
they come to my house at 3:30 am and try and wake me up to come out and play leaving tree breaks on my street way up high where nothing can make that happen but a very strong & long armed ‘them’

August 30T.j.
do they like music? say if I were to bring an acoustic guitar with me?

August 30Freeman Young
perfect that IS a for sure soothing calming entertainin effect
i use a african kilimba thumb piano works like chrstopher robin or pied piper

August 30T.j.
I noticed that in the blog yesterday that was one of the few things i glanced over,thats why I asked

August 30Freeman Young
if you get in that same state… that one gets in to make great music… that’s the state to appraoch these guys in
they live in a hightened state and we have to match it in order to be recieved

August 30T.j.
then I shoulldn’t have a problem…there’s something about nature that brings that out in me

August 30Freeman Young
it’s like jamming with master musicians that never met… the flow of communication & connected consciousness making music flow out … that’s it… the same as music

August 30T.j
thats very reassuring

August 30Freeman Young
it’s what I call the “AllOneness”
yeah there no threats no thoughts no frets just knowing & flowing without second guessing! Hey this should be something I share in my blog..!

August 30T.j.
Well i’m glad i could help,I think i’m gonna go now.I’ll let you know how things turn out and look forward to catching up on your blog,I’ve been discouraged to get out there lately and I’m really glad I got to talk to you,you’ve inspired me to get back out there so thank you!

September 5Freeman Young
i’m hERE…. did I ?… your welcomed!

A wonderful lady down in Gorgia

Her: Oh Sat afternoon about 5:30 heard them come out to clearing, I could not see it the yell was like a Rebel yell whoop followed by a beautiful owl call, never hear owls here
only the one call then… walking through the vines near me and sat down out of my view

Me: that’s them you can get a digital recorder that plugs into the computer for $39. at target!
works great

Her: I need to record ea time i go out

that’s how it starts

and put it out while your inside
they come close and talk to each other

Her: sweet!!!

this is a great way to get started

Her: I will do this thanks

bye check ya later

Her: ok c ya

September 6 comment on a pic I posted in FB..

Her: I counted 8 in the picture, thought more! It’s like the pictures I take I know they are there, but can anyone else see them usually no
c ya,

Her: Wooo Hoooo I’m so excited!! can’t sit still to type!! I took my best pic today ever with my Droid phone, I really have to figure out a copy right to put on them. Ok you talked to me at length the other day. I figured I had 8 or maybe 10 around me. Omg honey this is a gathering place. I saw so many i stopped counting them. Round heads, pointed heads, and then the Dog looking ones. The wind was blowing, and the trees were swaying and they were holding on, and I could see them because the wind blew away the cover!!! wooo I am pumped!!
Well ,…performing well on stage tonight at class helped but excited is a understatment!!

time to brush my teeth and put out a treet for the kids,
good night!
Sept. 11 : Hey! Lots of wood knocks, breaking sticks, rocks on neighbors house, a few whistles.
Just now out side, I wood knocked, and in the distance knock replied, and near me, female then male confirmed location. with vocal. then someone moved in close to watch me. the phone rang so I came inside. Mom found my stash of plaster prints recently . So a hour ago mom tells me she wants me to see a doctor because im seeing things that do not exist . That no one can see them, because i’m sick. She told me she did not know how to help me I was wrong! I told her I am not sick this is what I do, I dont watch tv or go to bars, what you want me to do with the rest of my life? she said read your bible and visit me. Frustration on the home front…Mom thinks I have lost my mind and I have demons!

So I guess I spend less time with her now. Any Ideas?

Yeah Some folks have open minds.. some folks allow friends and or family to be ‘what ever’ way that looks, how ever that is expressed tollerate or agree to dis agree whether they approve or dis approve… It’s always a mixed bag. I’ve been ridiculed since I first started this and for most of those years I’d be & say vague things about “what I’m doing out there in the woods at night” or all the time… even today with all the info out there… still people don’t want to see a fact as a fact and a belief as a fiction…you just can’t share it with certain people if it doesn’t fit into their world then it is a good bet even with a clear photo they still won’t see it! Discerning who & when is to tell is tricky business and even in the land of new ideas and abundance of open minds and tollerance. (here in the SF bay area) I’m sort of still a challenge to a lot of people! Even with photos and hair and casts … it’s not in the chemical sensory make up of those then it’s a good bet ..until they have an experience they can’t explain they won’t believe us! OH WELL!

thanks,

AND OUT IN PACIFIC GROVE

how the action aroud your parts?
it’s been epic here

pretty slow I thought I heard some knocks last night, 3 nothing like that 1 night when they were everywhere

yeah it moves around but if ya listen they are close too as they move about

hey I’d like to Intro you to your neighbor fellow BF enthusiast lady I’ve been coaching
shes looking up how to do a group chat..

September 2

went to Jacks Peak yesterday and was SO excited. It had been quiet all week and I started wondering if they weren’t coming up to where humans were. nothing new, no new breaks in fact it looked like someone had cleaned up everything! Then BAM new breaks everywhere! they even made a fresh break in a treestump of a tree that the rangers had just cut down. that made me laugh out loud! It’s in a weird spot to get the shot but I’ll go back on Mon… See All
ps your friend kupa is fucking rude, i wont be commenting on anything publically anylonger
September 8

so check out my forest friends photo album. shots of what I told u about on the phone. the arch photos 1-4 I took after I spoke to you. it was easily 6 ft high and I had to go into the brush and poison oak to get those shots. After I walked back to my car, I found I was crawling with big red/black ants all over me…eeewwww! I got a clear vision, crystal clear, of them laughing at me. I was not screaming or anything but clearly grossed out, I was not screaming or anything but clearly grossed out, the ants were on me head to toe. eeewwww, they were cracking up and let me know it! .

It seems some of my Artist friends think I’m going into the forest and lifting these heavy branches into other trees ???????????/ hehehehehe…hehehehehehehehe that’s funny
Yesterday

11:33am
yeah I had that same thing accused of me! “your making those sounds! that’s you in the flir shot etc…

    I just finished watching some of your videos on YouTube. You must be the only person, or the only person I know, hunting BF on a skateboard. I think it’s cool though, a nice, quiet, green way to travel.

    I was unable to see the subject on the video you shot at night. You talked about no more lights on the roof. If possible, could you upload a daylight video for comparison? Just a thought.

    The video where you shot the footprints in the creek bed was very interesting. I’ve never thought to look at the creek bed but I will from now on.

    Keep up the hunt.

      Kevin,

      Some of Freeman’s videos show a group of BF lounging on the side of a hill in the afternoon in PLAIN SIGHT!!!!

      It blew me away when I saw it…they were fully aware of Freeman being there and filming them, as they would look directly at him, then go about their business of chillin’.

      I’ve heard rumors of a new book that Freeman is co-writing that will have tons of “new” information and media for everyone to check out that’s not yet been seen by the public!!!!

  2. JP Smith says:

    I’ve been told that once you enter their domain and they see you, they just might follow you home or at least as close as they can get without exposing themselves.

    They are extremely curious of humans and can detect and understand that we are “like” them and they are “like” us.

    I’m pretty sure that if you come close to or live close to their “domain” and they see that you are aware of them, they will follow and keep tabs on you to ensure you’re not a potential threat.

    This is just my personal theory though, but an educated one.

    🙂

    My name’s JP and I live in Central Florida between Orlando and Daytona Beach.

    I found my first footprint last Monday and guess where it was…in a newly developed, medical building park right across the street from my neighborhood!

    What led me to finding the print was a tree break that I spotted from the road.

    When I went to check it out, I found multiple tree breaks and some kind of barrier that was carefully constructed or woven out of old and new tree branches, vines and other types of vegetation.

    The print was going towards the direction of the berm or barrier and was 4″ across at the heel, about 7″ across at the toes and about 14″ long from the heel to the big toe. It left an impression about an inch deep in the compacted sand.

    When I put my barefoot next to the print, stood on 1 leg and pushed down with all of my weight (I’m about 5’11” and 184 lbs), my foot didn’t sink into the sand and barely made a print at all.

    It’s been raining for the past 2 nights, so I doubt the print is still in good condition. But, I’ll be prepared the next time I find one and will hopefully get to cast it.

    ~Thanks Freeman!~

    JP or Freeman, do you know of any woods people locations in north carolina(i am in rocky mount-nash county). I realize the mountains are a good bet,but do you know of a area closer. Thank you.
