While doing research for my book, "What Would Sasquatch Do?" it became very apparent that there was a link in many sightings to apple orchards.

In the 70’s in Whitehall, New York many of the sightings were centered on the north side of Route 4, and Abair Road. At the time there was a rather large apple orchard in the area on that north side.


In the mid 2000’s there was another flap of Sasquatch sightings this time on the South side of Route 4, but the apple orchard to the north, was long gone. However there is a large commercial apple orchard on the South side of Route 4 currently a short distance to some of the sighting locations.

In the "Baby Video," (taken outside of Modena, New York in May of 1997) which can be reviewed here, very prominent in the background was an apple orchard, as well as many years later after seeing the land, there were strawberry and blackberry bushes galore.

Also in the "Vermont Trail Cam Photo" (Captured in early September 2010), which also can be viewed here, was captured allegedly grabbing an apple from under an apple tree.

Do these controversial pieces of evidence, coincidentally support the sighting flaps of the last 4 decades?

Even more interesting is the research of Dr. Jane Goodall, (referencing her work in the Mogabe) whom used apples to coax the chimpanzees to socialize with her, noticed something interesting. The chimps often would go to the rotting apple first, Dr. Goodall assuming because they had an alcohol content. The chimps apparently enjoyed their buzz…


Till next time,


Hi gang,

           Figured its time to brush off the cobwebs and get posting some news stories again.

Article 1  – Forensics

First is some content from Squatchdetective University, as I go over some do’s and don’ts of forensic evidence collection techniques.



Deer kill by Bigfoot? Nope…shot!


Article 2 – Waterford, New York Bigfoot Flap of 1981

Next up is one of my local favorites. Found while looking at John Green’s database, I did a little Squatchdetective work to get the police reports and the details.





Police report of August 8th, 1981


Squatchdetective Radio update.

Just to let you know gang it’s coming up fast….stay tuned for details and announcements.

Till Next Time,


Over the last month I have been exploring new research areas for my team since it would seem what I have labeled as “Research Area #1” seems a bit played out, as activity seems to be dwindling off and not what it was.

One interesting note on #1 is that on September 11th, while the meat of the field team, led by Assistant Director, Bruce Barraclough,  went to investigate lower areas, back at the base camp, Case Manager Stacey Horton and myself, had a rather large rock come crashing through the trees and land about 25 feet in front of us. (Mind you whatever had thrown it was throwing it uphill).

Rock thrown at me and Stacey Horton, 22:40 hours, 11- September – 2013.


I recovered the baseball sized rock. The interesting thing is that this type of stone is actually found some distance away. (1/2 mile) but is not indigenous to that particular area.

On September 25th, 2013 the team, explored a new area, well scouted by myself over the years. The area has a history of Sasquatch encounters going back to the late fifties.

As we entered the area, we discovered a sheep herd at some distance and it is quite an impressive sight to see hundreds of glowing eyes looking at you in the dark, albeit a bit unnerving at first.


  (Left) Over 100 sets of eyes staring at us, (Right) What it  looked like on the “Therm.”

We continued on to the lookout point which I had set as my “high water mark,” and began to scan the opposite shore across the river which was before us, with the thermal imager.

The opposite shore was barren of life it appeared, when suddenly a large splash, as if something rather large had been thrown into the water to my eight o’clock, which was on the same side of the river as the team.

I began to scan the side of the shore we were on, with the thermal imager and low and behold a solitary biped standing on the shoreline. It began to move towards us and then into the wood line disappearing.

I also scanned with the naked eye as well, to insure we weren’t looking at a late night fisherman, (despite the ruggedness to travel down to that area) and there was nothing but darkness, ( an IR scan also showed no IR lights, aka night vision was being used as well) so if it was a human they were using a naked eye to navigate the darkness.


Team member Ted Varamogianis and I bolted from our lookout and staked out the road we had just traveled up in hopes we might catch it crossing over to the more desolate and evergreen side of the road, but with no luck.


Road Ted and I dashed down to hopefully spy another glimpse.

It had either crossed over before we had gotten their, perhaps at another point, or could have hidden in the area some forty feet below us.

The next day, I traveled back to the location and took some comparison photos and look for signs of any trace evidence.

First was to pinpoint the location.



Unfortunately the terrain was not conducive to leaving track finds and the shore line was constantly under assault from boat wakes that cause water in some places to travel up to 3 feet over the shoreline.

One positive note, there was no sign what so ever of any human contamination. Leading me to suspect we had a successful mission.

And last but not least, our woolen friends.


Our team for 9/25/13 – Deneen, Steve, Stacey, Squatch-D, Ted, and Jim.

I’d like to thank all of our team whom made it to the last two expeditions and outings, and a big thanks to Bruce Barraclough for his hard work.

Well gang updates and more investigations yet to come.

“Keep on Squatchin’”

Till Next Time
