Large rocks thrown into water near you

Terrible stench, an eye-watering, rotten, skunky smell

Wall pounded on

Red glowing eyes seen at night

Eye shine at night, high up

Taps on window pane, tapping

Scratching sound on outside walls, windows, or screens

Trees shaking, waving, without windy weather

Healthy trees pushed over, branches broken in good weather

Animal shadows moving quickly across curtains or window shades

Howls, screaming, calls, whoops, perhaps loud enough to vibrate your body

Sudden, intense feeling of being watched

Knocking sounds on wood, rocks clacking together

Animal feed disappears too quickly

Missing articles found later in obvious spot

All of a fruit or vegetable crop goes missing overnight

Animals going crazy, running around

Animals jumpy or injured in the morning, scratches, handprints on hide

Dogs barking, dogs hiding, whimpering

Face in the window

Someone is growled at

Someone hears heavy, loud breathing

Update, April 24, 2016

I had some small scale and recurring window taps–just one, about ten seconds after I turned off the light to sleep.  Right when I’m ready to drift off, TAP, and I am wide awake and frozen in place.

My ordered trail cam was still in transit, so I put my regular camera on the window sill, lens out, and snapped a series of flash photos of nothing, just as a shot over the bow.  I slept one night with the bedroom light on.

The next night I put the camera in the window, and left the bathroom light on to light the back yard, and turned off the bedroom light.   No taps.

The trail cam arrived, and I installed it.  trail cam    I am pleased with the photo quality–I had expected 8-bit graphics or something, but it’s decent.

When the trail cam was out there, I had no action at all.  Yea!

I needed an SD card and could not find my spare, so I brought the trail cam in and borrowed the card.  I left the cam indoors over one night, and the next night something was out in the back making some noises.  So I put the cam back now.  It appears to work.

Will update as events mandate.

Update

I heard nothing last night.  Screws not stepped on, tape pristine.

I noted mourning doves building a nest in a niche in the eaves.  Daughter A says she hears them fluttering around outside but that they do not cause the sounds she hears.  Certainly the noises I have recently heard were NOT little birds.

Daughter A heard taps on wall last night.  She says  that, when she tells it to Eff Off, it leaves.  She went outside and told it to Eff Off out loud and not come back.  (Eye roll)

I will leave tape and screws in place.   I closed all the windows early last night, so maybe that helped.  I plan to put up lights, but wiring is an issue.

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!”

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.

freaky

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

LIGHTING

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

SECURITY and CAMERAS

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.

DEFENSE

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.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

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.

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.

More Supernatural Speculation

Here is the question I have come to at this point:      spooky

Do demons infest bigfoot and use them to pester us?

http://www.ignatiusinsight.com/features/framorth_excerpt2_aug04.asp 

Diabolic  infestations affect houses, things, or animals, not humans.   Obsession can include ongoing obsessive thoughts, sometimes even rationally absurd, but of such nature that the victim is unable to free himself

Below are some signs of demonic activity.    Any of these ring a bell vis a vis bigfoot and bigfoot research?

Chronic illness–can be serious or less so

Crippling conditions, lameness, etc.

Almost always obsession influences dreams. 

A series of bad things happens–like they did to Job

but here is a quote from http://catholicwarfare.blogspot.com/p/signs-and-symptoms.html  This should give you pause.

Some examples of typical and atypical, but still commonly reported, paranormal activity:

  • Loud, unexplained bangs, rappings or knocks, strange sounds, music, hearing distinct voices, crying babies or names being called which appear to come out of nowhere.
  • objects moving (either visibly or while you are out) without a human explanation.
  • strange feelings of extreme fear in certain rooms for no apparent reason, feelings of being watched or “not alone.”
  • vibrating sensations, feeling a blast of unusually cold or hot air where there shouldn’t be, having hair pulled or body touched in some way.
  • unexplainable cuts, scratches or bruises that appear and disappear suddenly.
  • unusual coincidences (this is a broad topic but often manifests as something that just has no worldly explanation, for example: finding a lost item after finding something that points you to where you would find it and instantly recognizing the connection.)
  • visuals. These can be shadows, lights, body parts or even full bodied persons  which appear and then vanish. 
  • smells that can not be explained, such as a certain type of perfume that appears at certain times or the lingering smell of feces in a home that has no reason to smell.illness
