Last couple of nights….will update tomorrow or next day

We have had some trouble the last couple of nights.  Lotta noise, sound of running…

The noises woke me up at 6:30 am.  Second day in a row.    They woke up one of the daughters, too.  Knocking on the side of the house,  on the roof.  Pretty loud.

I just put a bit of cardboard with screws in it on the ground in front of the bathroom window, put packing tape here and there–hair traps or w/e, and taped a blessed palm cross and a miraculous medal to the window on the side of the house in question.    Plus did prayer and holy water all over the place here.

We will see what happens.  Because I have mixed my media, so to speak, if NOTHING happens, which is the goal, we won’t know if it’s the screw/tape , prayer, or just chance.  But I am just going for results.

Do We Have Watchers?

I recently listened to an account of how bigfoot followed a researcher home.   Jo Dirteh   This made me wonder if researchers watching bigfoot arouse enough concern that the researchers are set up with a watcher or watchers.  Anybody they think knows too much is window smakwatched?  I don’t know why this should be so, but there is something to it.

This likewise reminded me of a recent event at my home.

When these creatures first followed me home or however they came here, they tapped on my oldest and bodacious daughter’s window a lot.  Then they started also throwing pebbles at my window about every 15 minutes.  Plus rooftop antics, etc.

Since I prayed over the property and holy watered it, I have had few incidents.   My daughter had more tapping and wall scratching, although she did not tell me at the time.

She said she thinks they left because once  when one was scratching on the wall, she was just fed up and asked it to please leave her alone, out loud.  It smacked the window once and stopped and did not return.

I recently had one LOUD rock thrown at the window, which, after such a long time with no activity, really did scare me. I think the reason is that earlier in the day, I had the window open and was listening to an episode of Sasquatch Chronicles, when suddenly Wes played a bigfoot babbling-chattering sound.

I always worry lurkers will hear something like that and think I have one of them captive in here in a closet or something, so I never play sounds unless I have on earphones.  But I was unprepared, and it played out loud.  And I think my fears were well founded.

Later, at night, when I turned off the light to go to sleep, within seconds,  BANG, the loudest rock smack on the window that I ever had here.

Just when you think maybe you are in the clear, they show you how wrong you were.  Just when you have yourself half-convinced maybe you imagined it all, some kind of irrefutable sign pops up to prove it is all too real.

So, moral of the story:  only play bigfoot sounds with earphones on;  they do follow you home; and they can be really obnoxious to have hanging around.

How To Get Rid of the Bigfoot at the Window

To get rid of your hairy nuisances, you have to take all the fun and entertainment value out of the situation.

BEHAVIORwindow smak

Tell them to GO AWAY and NOT COME BACK. I know, but I hear it can work.

Do not do anything that leads them to believe you know they are there, they exist.  I put up X’s in front of windows and I think it was a mistake.   Aqui se habla squatch.

Do not respond to any provocation on their part.  If they tap, do not tap back. If they slam the house, do not go outside.  If they are on the roof, deal with it in the morning.

DO NOT play bigfoot sounds or whoop or knock.

Supervise children 100% of time.

Be assertive but not aggressive.  Your yard and home are your territory, off limits to them.

Take your gun when you go outside, visible, but not in your hand.

scratchesDo a little target practice around the property, using safety sense. Be armed and let them see that. Don’t have a gun? Better buy one, large caliber. Ask advice of friends who hunt, and do research online. Lots of ammo, just in case.

They mimic human voices, so think before you respond to outdoor calls or sounds.

Cover windows so they cannot observe you–turn off their TV.

Drain swimming pools.

Lock up pets and livestock at night, from chickens to bulls. Put big dogs in barn and house.  Do not chain them up.

Be aware that their structures may have meanings we don’t understand.  Don’t mess with theirs or build your own rude structures.  You don’t know what they might infer from your kid’s tree fort.

Do not whistle outdoors, especially at night.  A whistle means “come and eat me, here I am, your food!”


Don’t feed them. Really.  Even accidentally.   Do not ever feed them or put food outside or throw leftovers outside in the woods.

Keep trash in the trash container, in the garage, and keep it locked. Compost piles are probably out.

Don’t barbecue, or if you do, clean up right away, including the grill.


Outbuildings containing any food should be secure enough to keep bigfoot out or else the food should be taken into the house.

I do not recommend that you poison food even if you feel sure you can kill them all at once and ensure kids,  pets, and innocent wildlife will not eat it.  Beware unintended consequences.

No deer feeders in the area.  Bird feeders either.

Discourage deer or other prey animals from hanging around. When you see prey animals,  chase them off.  You can use a marine airhorn.  airhorn


Light up the house, put up a trail cam to monitor each side of the house.

You can place cameras in windows, inside.  Motion detector devices also work.  I think they may be able to see or hear the motion detecting signal.  motion detector unit

Keep all doors and windows closed and all shades drawn.  Windows that open must have screens.

Put up lots of lights up high -–over 15 feet high, if you can manage–around the yard for night time. Put a wire cage around the bulbs because they will throw rocks or yank them off the wall. Even Christmas lights are useful. Strobes are good, too. Shine lights out from inside the house.

All lights must be able to be switched on from inside the house.

Motion detector lights can be defeated, so don’t use those. Bigfoot are too smart for that.

Zillion watt flashlights and spotlights. They hate that.  Always take a high wattage flashlight with you outside at night.  Aim at their eyes, because it temporarily blinds them.

I hear they dislike big arrays of green and blue lasers, available somewhere on the internet.   Bob Garrett  uses them. green laser device


Calling 911, the game warden, animal control, or other authorities may or may not get results. Sometimes law enforcement will even stop coming out altogether. So, don’t mention it is bigfoot, say it is a big man, a scruffy drifter, or a bear.

Ask the local PD or sheriff to do extra patrols to make sure you are safe from what might be a crazy drifter or a prisoner on the lam.

Cut down all weeds, brush, and trees around the house. Shade is nice, but quiet is nicer.

Put up window alarms, put a stick in the sliding patio door, etc.

Small, inexpensive motion activated and very shrill alarms which firmly attach to windows and doors can be bought for around $6 for two. They work surprisingly well. alarms alarm  If it starts going off all the time, it may have become a game for them.

A good idea is a web camera system via which you can watch your home from your phone or office.  webcams

Bigfoot know and avoid cameras.

Put up game cameras. Yes, they can avoid them, but it’s the deterrent factor you are after,  not pictures. You can also place cameras in the windows inside, pointing out.

Install a night vision surveillance system to warn you and inform you of their location.

Have back up power sources.

Buy copper wire and weave a loose mat for in front of doors and windows and underlay with a plastic or rubber door mat.  Electrify the copper mat  when you want it on.  Connect the mat wiring to a switch beside the door, inside the house.   Check voltage requirements for livestock and use a larger amount of electricity for the mat.   Post signs or police tape alerting any visitors not to approach the mat.  Best never to turn it on unless you have a monster standing on it.game cam flash 6 1 2016

Put up bars on windows, set deep and big around, but you won’t need a lot of them on a window.

Assume they will try to get into the house when you are not home or asleep.   Lock doors both when out of the house and when you are in the house. Lock up tight at night, close windows and draw curtains.

Install steel doors and steel screen security doors and windows.  Install steel storm doors with dead bolts.  Reinforce all jambs.

Strong entry points may not stop them, but if linked to a burglar alarm and security company, at least the police will be called.

Install a safe room.

Board up doggie doors and keep dogs inside at night.

Log walls or field stone construction seem strong enough to keep them out.

Be aware of any basement or back doors. They must be strong and locked. Inside door to basement or garage must be strong.

Install tall, strong, electrified fencing.  Jurassic Park it. Razor wire on top.   Do not count on it, though, as they may just prop a log up and climb over. __/|| Or just jump over.

Make it hard for them to climb on the roof by removing anything they could use as a handhold or stair. Make roofing materials slippery or smooth.


Only shoot at them if you feel threatened in the extreme–kidnap or bodily harm. And then you will need to immediately leave the property, because they will escalate their activity and threat level. Return only with caution, well prepared, and with help.

They might not be able to differentiate between a warning shot and aiming at them.

Get large, heavy dogs. Several. Great Swiss mountain dogs, boerboal, something big but smart and friendly. You don’t want a dog that will bite your children or neighbors. Do not chain them up. If they are diggers put a repellent at the fence line.reggy

Dogs who bark at bigfoot are more likely to be dispatched first, so barky is not good. But it alerts you.

A flock of geese is a great watchdog, so to speak. Get some geese and keep them in a secure pen near the house. Maybe ten or so.  Worked for the Romans.

Stay safe and legal.


Have a Catholic priest bless the home and property. Keep holy water around the house and splash it on windows and doors if the trouble returns. It works.  Sometimes bigfoot may be under demonic influence, I guess.

If your trouble is extreme, you may want to call your diocese to request an exorcist to come over and make short work of the problem.michael

As your beliefs permit, prayer is helpful.  Invoke God and ask him to smite these creatures.

Persons with entrenched nonChristian belief systems may want to consult a Native American medicine man or woman. Native Americans are very wise to the ways of all these creatures.   But if that doesn’t work, try a priest.

These are some signs of a bigfoot infestation:

Large humanlike footprints in soil and fingerprints or handprints on vehicles or house windows.

Loud slams on outside house walls. IMG_0226

You see one.  It might look almost human, or more like a gorilla, or might be scary ugly.  If it has a snout, that may be the dogman.six kinds

If you see something that looks more like a dog, that is called a dogman.

If you hear sounds that sound more like a wolf howl, that may be dogman, as well.

If you see something else entirely, let me know.

Our story so far….

Early On:

I live in east-central California, just below the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  A couple of years ago, I saw a bigfoot standing just beside and behind a tree by the side of the road in broad daylight.  Hand wrapped around the tree, shortish brown hair all in its face, about six feet tall, and it was certainly no bear.  Others with me also saw it.  That got me started.

After reading many online accounts of  sightings and experiences, many books, and miles of web pages on the topic, it was clear that I’d actually, somehow, seen a bigfoot.  And nobody really knew what a a bigfoot was.  No available explanation or theory seemed  satisfactory.

When I first became interested, I watched tons of videos and read all the reports I could find.   I started taking my own pictures, and I went over each one inch by inch.  I eventually was able to see them in photos.

I had so many photos I deleted some to make room for new ones, then deleted most in an effort “to quit” the obsession.  So I may say I had a video, I had a picture…that is why I cannot produce what I may refer to.

One thing I noticed in photos is that they often seem to have sort of sparkles around them.  Maybe it’s flies or something.    Look for the little dots, then look for the squatch.

Also, weirdness upon , there seemed to be something with a spotted pattern on it, something large that I could not quite figure out.

Some seemed like they were …. blue.   I wondered if they reflect colors or something.

Some seemed like they had their faces painted white, sometimes with red or black designs on them.  I used to have a great picture of one who was squatting behind a bush across the canal.  I didn’t know he was there or even see him,  but I bent down to shoot a pic from low down, and caught him unawares.  He had the painted face thing.   Clear as day.    Once I looked up at the cinderblock wall as  I was about to get something from my car, and  saw two or three heads, just the top half, and it was the cone shaped kind of head.  They skin that was showing seemed to have greasy painted red stripes across the forehead.  Like the carved wooden masks of the NW coast Native Americans.  Those masks look like that for a reason.

At the canal spot outside of town, one said “hello” to me.  Got it on video.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzNw4Qj8f7g&list=UUzHTPSDyaiCUqr6mktXNXhQ   At about 45 seconds.

Once, one of my children and I saw two standing, looking at us looking at them, silhouetted against a screen of leaves.   Looking at us looking at them.  One had his foot resting up on a log.

At a “gifting spot” I found a doll made of twisted straw or stems, about three feet tall.  It seems to resemble me in some ways.  What does the red cloth mean?  I don’t know, but a Hmong friend advised me to get rid of it.  As a matter of fact, about everything that could go wrong has gone wrong this year.   I wonder if there is actually a connection?  Naw . . . . .right?doll

I was shadowed at another canal spot north of here but also in town.  I got the hint, and left.  As I did so, it was snapping sticks at me and following along at the side, which pissed me off, so I snapped branches right back at him.

Venturing out

I went out to take my own pictures.  I found nearby areas where I thought they lived.  I started to recognize stick structures and  trail signs.   I tried gifting; singing; hanging out, blowing bubbles; playing instruments; drawing on surfaces and notepads; leaving them chalk, markers, and paper;  whistling; leaving stick signs and little replica stick structures and shelters; talking to them; dancing; and other foolishness.

If  they were out there, they did not want my food and just threw it around.  Edible gifts were scorned, as were some other things.  I offered them, at various  times, spools of red ribbon, rolls of wire for construction, cordage, large loops of ribbon with large sparkly glass crystal beads, salt, honey, coins, marbles, chicken livers, giant sunglasses, balls, large hats, fleece, and bubble juice.  I demonstrated use of bubble juice.

They would take accidentally abandoned items.  So, I pretended to leave things behind, “dropped” them, got them to fall out of the car as I left, and so on.

They did whistle back quite often and made loud animal sounds, like horse whinnies.  Once when I was about to get in the car, I gave a last whistle, and the treetops broke out in a chorus of whistles.  If that was any indication of how many there are, there are plenty.

The bigfoot were clearly there.  I thought they were real, but not “spirit beings.”    My original canal spot was a friendly place, but other places felt less hospitable.  In fact, after a time, I thought they were mostly scary and creepy and began to think they were more dangerous than we’d like to admit.

Habituation or infestation?

They followed me home apparently.  Or something.  The oldest daughter is very lovely, goddesslike, in fact, and they liked to tap on her window.  They liked to tap on my window.  Two house slams my skeptic husband cannot explain.

I tried a camera in the yard and motion sensitive lights, and that only worked for a couple of weeks.  I  put X markers below the windows and attached motion sensitive alarms on the inside of the windows, which do seem to deter them.

I later doubted my wisdom when I suddenly realized  the X markers might have told them I knew about them, and I’m still not sure if that was such a good idea.   I get the idea from all the little annoyances that they know we know they are here.

There were sounds of somethings running and walking up on the roof.   We made jokes about “roof rats,” but clearly rats running across our asphalt shingles could never make that volume of racket.  We  experienced tapping on windows and had what must  have been pebbles thrown at windows at 3 AM and many other small disturbances.   Then there was a big, blurry shadow cast by something on the roof that was not part of the roof , seen in photos but not noticed at the time they were taken.

And so then they just threw stuff instead of tapping.   They threw smallish pebbles at the windows.  Click, clack, clickety clink.  Sometimes they threw pretty big pebbles that landed with a startlingly loud crack on the panes of glass.

My youngest would weave wreathes from long willowy branches, and add blue feathers she’d found.  Then three dead blue jays, carefully positioned and lined up in a row waiting for her after school.   That was chilling.

Apparently my oldest continued to have scratching and tapping until pretty recently.

They don’t holler or whoop around town, and I don’t smell them, at least not much, not often.  I think they might be smoking in my backyard, though.  Unless that is a dogman….

Trouble brewing

IT was then I found the little doll thingy and brought it home.  I see in retrospect that it was a cursed object, but I didn’t even think such things really existed at the time, at least not around here.  That year everything went wrong.  I don’t want to overshare personal information, but it was a very tough time for me.

Eventually, pebbles landing on my bedroom window became a real problem.  It was happening about once every thirty minutes around the clock.  It was frightening and sometimes I slept with the light on.  To cover the sounds of roof creaks and window clacks, I often turned on my large air purifier we call the blast furnace because it is so loud.

My youngest child saw bigfoot more frequently than  I, and that worried me.  Then she said she was scared to sleep in her bed because the bed moved when it shouldn’t.  Now, that freaked me out.  Oh boy.

That is about when I was adding up my bits and pieces of information and coming up with an ominous answer.


You might not agree with the answers I got.  But I don’t see anyone getting answers we can all agree on.    So, yes, there is something out there.  And it’s not something good.

I think we can all agree bigfoot easily becomes an obsession that takes your energy, takes time away from family and work, and costs money.  You don’t have to believe in curses or demonic infestations to see this as a bad thing.  Face it, this is a problem, like gambling or an addiction, that needs to be handled with maturity and moderation but often isn’t.

I have only heard three rocks on the window in the last three months.  I believe I know what it is that is out there, why it’s there, and how to handle it, so my curiosity is satisfied.    I don’t think about them much anymore and hope I never see one again.   I sleep better, can leave the window open and the light off, don’t need the fan, and have the answers it took me so long to find.
