Northern KY Bigfoot Research Group Habitation Area Field Report 4-13-14

On 04/13/2014, the 3 primary investigators returned to the Trimble County habitation area to continue our investigation. Thomas Shay and Rodney Adams lead investigators, and Bob “Wolfman” Bratcher biologist and science writer of the Northern Kentucky Bigfoot Research Group of Trimble County Kentucky were accompanied by Rodney’s daughter Cierra Adams. The investigation began at 12PM and the team returned to our main habituation site following a different route for safety due to turkey hunting in the region adjacent to the habituation area. In route to the area one new print was noted.
The team found little new activity in the area from the previous investigation theorized due to all the recent hunting in the area. The jar of peanut butter that remained the previous expedition and was nearly empty but some PB remained, was missing and unable to be found in the entire habitat. The new baiting technique of a bag of apples suspended above the trail remains untouched as did the rock structure. Photos from the trail came left in the locus tree will be evaluated but the previous photos again appeared to have been blanked out as if a hand was covering the camera lens. High wind made hearing anything difficult, but the team split up in
groups to cover the different ridges. Tom Shay and Robert Bratcher heard a single scream and heavy walking on one side of the ridge but no visual sighting occurred and only the one vocal and possible heavy walking was heard.
The second portion of the excursion consisted of investigation the predation of a yearling calf on an adjacent farm. Tom Shay had been contacted by the landowner and told that a few weeks ago a yearling calf had been killed and dragged in the woods. The farmer stated that what ever dragged the calf had to be large to drag a year old calf off. Sunday's investigation revealed extensive evidence of unusual predatory behavior unlikely related to coyote or dog or the rare mountain lion seen in the county, bear have not been reported. The front legs of the calf were completely pulled from their sockets, skin pulled back and meat removed. The neck had also been completely twisted severing the animals spine. Examination of the remains by Robert found that the musculature of the shoulders, legs and chest cavity had been pulled free after the skin was pealed back, and the rib cage remained intact. The fur had been pulled half off the calf like it was partially skinned. Examination of the internal abdominal and thoracic cavity shown where all the organs including heart, lungs, liver and intestine were removed. The remaining ribs and leg bones show no evidence of candid teeth marks with characteristic punctures by sharp canines. The rib cartilage was intact and untouched, unusual for predators such as cats or canine.
The carcass was 120 yards away from the main pasture and no evidence that it had been dragged. No disturbed substrate or ground cover was noted and it appeared the calf had been thrown against a tree as fur and tissue from the yearling was seen higher on the tree as was a bow from impact. Fifteen feet away one hind leg was found and had been chewed upon. Several possible prints were found in the area and a single 18.5 inch print was found partially washed out in the stream bed. Also two snapped trees marking the area were found.
Videos posting soon and a return expedition is scheduled soon with expanded overnight research in the planning at two locations.

Calf found mutilated near habitation site.

 On Friday April 11 2014,



 I was in town having tires put on my truck. I ran into the landowner of our current habitation site . We talked and he asked me how my rese
 arch was doing, and I explained what has happen in the past few weeks. The landowner brought to my attention that A few weeks ago a year old calf was killed and dragged in the woods and stated that it had to be big to drag a year old calf off . I asked were the location of the carcass was, and he explained to me the exact location.

After the work on my truck was finished I drove to the habitation site and proceeded to investigate this kill and in the pasture I found the kill site. The front leg of the calf  and off to the right of the leg around 120 yards I came upon the carcass which which was supposedly dragged onto this side of the ridge. Upon careful examination, all the legs except one hind leg were pulled from the body the chest cavity was torn open. Fifteen feet away I found the other hind leg which appeared to be gnawed upon .
Now some would say coyote or dog killed the calf. Possibly, but to drag a 300 to 400 pound year old calf and we are also talking about dead weight. In the photos you will notice some dead fall. Whatever moved the calf had to drag it over the dead fall which is highly unlikely.
Upon investigating the ground there was no sign of it being dragged. The leaf litter was not disturbed which leads me to believe it was carried there. 
Around the carcass the ground was pressed down as if some thing very large and heavy was standing.
As I investigated the area around the kill site I found two snapped trees marking the area.
I wont come out and say this was a Bigfoot, but some of the evidence leans toward it.
In the last couple of weeks strange events have occurred in the habitation site. There are new tree structures. The last time we were in the site we had a stone thrown into the base camp. Now the killing of a calf.
We are planing to be in the site this weekend do get some more information. This last incident happened not more than 500 yards behind the landowners home.

Vocalzation reported south of Milton Kentucky!

On April 2 2014  I Thomas Shay received a phone call from a gentleman who lives south of Milton Kentucky who's name he dose not wish to be known. But have on file.
He stated to me via phone of strange howls coming from a holler on his property and he knew it wasn't dogs or coyotes. He described the howls as mournful and some aggressive at times and this happen on March 30 2014 at around 10:00 pm.
So I made arrangements to meet with him that evening April 2 2014. on his property.
After arriving around 9:30 pm. we set and talked more of the incident and around 11:00 pm we heard the first vocalizations of the night which continued off and on till around 1:30 am.
By 2:00 am we didn't hear  any more vocals and I ended the investigation.
 I know this gentleman personally he is a avid hunter and woods man and doesn't believe in a hairy
bipedal creature walking around in the woods of Trimble county .
After hearing the vocals he stated that that there may be something to the stories he has heard over the years.
The next day April  3 2014 I received  another report of hearing strange howls in the area.
We were granted permission to investigate the property after the spring Turkey season was over for our safety.
 the area has several reports of sightings and vocals over the years,

location of sighting/encounter Morgan Monroe State forestry in Indiana in the overflow camping area

What time of day did encounter / sighting take place 2am
What was the weather conditions Clear and full moon

Please explain your encounter/sighting with as much detail such as sounds smells and the duration on event. Our first Sasquatch encounter was Thursday May 4th 2012 on the boarder between Morgan and Monroe counties in the Indiana state forestry.  My wife and I were camped out in the old camp ground back by the logging/fire road with the area to ourselves.  All night while cooking and eating and setting by the fire we keep hearing something large moving behind out camp but out of sight for the fire.  After bedding down I came at 2AM to relieve myself.  Standing there I looked over to our SUV and saw something standing on the other side of it.  At first I thought is was a tree until it moved away from the tree and closer to the car and was just standing there swaying back and forth.  It’s waist came up to the roof of the car where my shoulders hit and I’m 6foot.  This put this things height at 8-9 feet tall.  I ran and grabbed my LED super bright flash light and shined it right on a large hair cover creature.  It immediately ran by me stepping over the 3.5 foot high road gate like it wasn’t even there and ran behind our tent into the woods.  The creature/being ran so fast I couldn’t keep track on it with my light.  About 30mins to an hour later we heard two loud knocks and several small rocks began hitting out tent.  This went on for about an hour as we set on our cots looking out.  Then one big rock hit with such force that it ripped our tent roof open through the rain fly and this was a brand new Coleman tent used for the first time... and it was a 200 dollar tent! The next morning I found the trail and partial prints of something about 30 feet behind our tent, and the bark of root of the tree where I thought I saw that figure had been torn off where something stepped on it!  It was a fresh tear as it was still oozing sap that next morning.  So after all that we packed up and came home, wife and I scared to stay another night.  I know that was a squatch in the woods that night... he owes me a tent... and new underwear for us both!  Attached are pictures of an 18inch prints we found.  This scared the crap out of us but also addicted us on squatching.  We have since returned to that same area over the last two years and had multiple encounters.

Were there any witness Laura Bratcher wife.

Northern KY Bigfoot Research Group Habitation Area Field Report 3-30-14

Northern KY Bigfoot Research Group Habitation Area Field Report 3-30-14
On 03/30/2014, the 3 primary investigators returned to the Trimble County habitation area. Thomas Shay, Rodney Adams, and Robert Wolfman Bratcher of the Northern Kentucky Bigfoot Research Group of Trimble County Kentucky were accompanied by Rodney’s daughter Cierra Adams, her friend Lacey and



Bob’s wife Laura as guest. This is an ongoing study and investigation started by Thomas Shay lead investigator and his partner Rodney Adams over two years ago after obtaining legal permission and exclusive legal rights to this private habitat. Bob Bratcher has been brought into the study as an assistant researcher to Tom and Rodney. Bob is a former field biologist and will act as team science writer. The investigation began at 1PM and the team returned to our main habituation site. Initially in route to the area Tom notice a trail of prints approximately 16 inches long, exact size difficult to ascertain as the terrain is heavy grass, but toe impressions were seen and the trail led from an open field and back into the habituation area.
The team found extensive new activity in the area from the previous investigation. Continued evidence of varying sized foot prints were notice and multiple new stick structures were found. The main trail into the habitat also had new uprooted trees dragged over the road to further block entry into the area. A new ravine was explored this trip and 2 sets of deer remains were found that were clearly predator remains. Several new trails previously unnoticed were found leading into the area as were new stick constructions built on the hill side that were large and complexly woven. This was the hill side that on the previous investigation movement was seen and a blurry photo via taken by telephoto digital camera at extreme range. The photo although showing a possible subject is at too great a distance and too blurry to be in anyway definitive.
On the previous expedition a jar of peanut butter was left and had shown signs of having had been opened, half the peanut butter eaten and the jar sealed tightly back. Today they jar was torn free of the tree, the peanut butter all but gone, and broken sticks were found in the remains where investigation subjects had used tools to access the food. The empty jar was left open this time but under a stuff animal the team leaves for the observation subjects that is often move around and hair samples routinely found. The team again heard characteristic chatter but one of the subjects involved seemed to have a higher pitch then previously heard... and huffing and growls were heard on the adjacent ridge but no sighting made. Also a large rock was thrown into the area but not near any of the study members or quest. A previously left Vienna sasages can was found that had what appeared to be subject teeth marks and possible blood from a mouth cut... being sent for analysis.
The new baiting technique of a bag of apples suspended above the trail at approximately 9.5 feet high and the camera lodged in the thorns of a locus tree brought interesting and unexpected results. The apples remained hanging but there was evidence of handling as the mesh bag was slightly torn. The most interesting feature of the investigation was that although the apples remained, an “X” formation was made directly under the bag on the ground along with a small pile of stacked stones. The team has yet to reach any conclusions on this behavior. The bag was left in place but a few apples cut to provide a more enticing odor, and our own pile of rocks built under it was topped with the deer skull in order to offer some form of mutual communication. The cameras batteries had run down so we are unsure of any photos at this time. New batteries are installed and the trail came remains in the locust tree. Documentation videos will be uploaded soon on the teams continued efforts. A return expedition is scheduled for one week and the planned expanded research is advancing with two overnight investigations pending.
Thanks for your interest

Cliff Barackman interesting footprint

Cliff Barackman




Here's a cool shot of an interesting footprint cast from the Blue Mountains of OR/WA. This Sasquatch stepped on a rock, around which its foot appeared to conform. This suggests a very thick fat pad on the bottom of the foot. Impressive!
