“One night I snacked on some Cheetos… I found Sasquatch and other interesting shapes – at least a couple in each bag,” --Andy Huot; Cheese Curl Photographer

Although the 34 year old Andy Huot lives and creates his art in Kentucky, it took an Australian news outlet to recognize his greatness.

In an article dated October 7th, Australia's Yahoo 7 News showcases some of Andy's most provocative work. He is not limited to single pieces, in fact, some of his photos use several cheese curls to tell a story in the form of a diorama.

The Article titled, "The man who makes the cheesiest art in the world" continues to talk about his process:

“I also started using multiple Cheetos to create dioramas such as ‘The Execution-Style Killing of a Man for Being Different,’ which is my favourite,” he said.

“All Cheetos are saved and sorted in a special container”.
Even his photo captions have become part of the work of art.

“I often do research and create several drafts before I am satisfied. The captions are the most important and most challenging part of the art,” he said.

KY News Station Asks University Teacher if Bigfoot is Real

Mason Smith is an English Teacher at East Kentucky University
"Out of 50 people [asked by Finding Bigfoot], 25 of those had eyewitness testimony that they'd seen something bi-pedal, hairy out in the woods. Now I think that's interesting" --Mason Smith

In a weekly series titled "Mystery Monday," Lexington, Kentucky news station asks a local EKU teacher about his newfound interest in Bigfoot. Read an excerpt below. 

When it comes to the legend of Sasquatch, an EKU English teacher doesn't know what to believe.

However, Mason Smith does think it's fascinating to consider the question "What if?"

"We live in a complex universe that has things that haven't been discovered," says Smith.

Smith's interest peaked a couple of years ago when the cast of Animal Planet's "Finding Bigfoot" came to Renfro Valley and asked participants if they had ever seen or heard Bigfoot.

"Out of 50 people, 25 of those had eyewitness testimony that they'd seen something bi-pedal, hairy out in the woods. Now I think that's interesting," says Smith.

Smith did not raise his hand in that meeting. He's got no Bigfoot stories to speak of. But he is fascinated with the idea of the creature.
Familiar faces to TV fans also think there are bigfoot in Kentucky

You can watch the full video segment at Mystery Monday: The Search For Bigfoot.

Larry the Cable Guy Goes Bigfooting

Larry the Cable Guy host of "Only in America"

“I didn’t see him. If it makes them happy to hunt for Bigfoot, I’m glad. That’s what this show is about: these guys go out on weekends . . . and at some point they think they’ll find Bigfoot..." Larry the Cable Guy

As we mentioned earlier last year Kentucky is an increasing hotspot for bigfooting. In our post, Kentucky is where Bigfooting is at, we highlighted Kentucky Bigfoot lead by Charlie Raymond. Charlie is a high school teacher, IT Specialist. and holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Florida. He developed to document all credible bigfoot encounters in Kentucky. He believes bigfoot to be a "flesh and blood" unidentified hominid, VERY closely related to us.

This season, History Channel's Only in America goes Bigfooting with Charlies Kentucky Bigfoot. Below is the excerpt from an article posted on

UPDATE: We just got word from Parker Duvall, a Kentucky Bigfoot Lead Investigator. He offers an alternative version of the howls Larry heard on the expedition, "Larry thought he was joked and cussed at the Producer (Eric) for pulling a trick on wasn't a trick-we had a close range howl and was stunned because of cameras, amount of people, etc.....we have a 4 minute clip of it on Ky Bigfoot Hunters and I can say Larry was truly stunned! It's funny that he still thinks it was someone playing a joke on him!"

You can hear the actual audio from the Kentucky Bigfoot site here.

New adventures this season include a walk in the woods at night with the Kentucky Bigfoot Research Group, squirrel hunting in the Ozarks and shooting targets at Army sniper school.
“It’s a fun show. I like the spontaneity of the comedy. I know where I’m going. They give me a little download of what will be happening, but I never meet anybody or have any activity (planned) until I get there. I want it to happen when it happens. I really love the improv nature of the show,” he says.
When asked if his TV series is sort of a comedy version of the old “On the Road With Charles Kuralt,” he answers, “It could be kind of like that, but it’s a combination of a lot of things really. I’m way more sexier than Charles Kuralt.”
Larry says going squatting in Kentucky did not convince him that the tall, hairy creature some call Bigfoot exists.
“I didn’t see him. If it makes them happy to hunt for Bigfoot, I’m glad. That’s what this show is about: these guys go out on weekends . . . and at some point they think they’ll find Bigfoot. Do I think there’s a Bigfoot? No. The only thing people ever see is the tracks. They see the tracks and hear him howl, but nobody has ever seen a picture of a Bigfoot.
“I went out with these guys, and it makes for a big night. They were awesome.
We had somebody go out (as a practical joke) and howl, and they howled back and thought it was a Bigfoot. They were fun guys,” said the funny guy.

Bigfoot Vocalizations from Kentucky

Bigfoot Acoustics

"To our great fortune, the Scottsville Ghost Hunters knew they had something interesting with this clip, so they contacted Charlie Raymond of the Kentucky Bigfoot Research Group " --Sasquatch Bioacoustic

Didn't we say they are doing great stuff in Kentucky? Charlie Raymond of (Kentucky Bigfoot) gave us a heads up on the whoops and yells of some Kentucky Vocalizations. Thanks to Charlie we found a great new blog (Sasquatch Bioacoustic)and some great definitions to different types of vocalizations.

The Kentucky Vocalizations were inadvertently captured by the late Billy Arndell and a group of paranormal investigators known as the Scottsville Ghost Hunters. During the evening of April 10, 2010, the group visited an abandoned house in a large wooded tract in Allen County, Kentucky. Billy placed his audio recorder inside the house, near a broken-out window, and stepped back outside to converse with his friends. While they talked, the recorder captured an impressive series of vocalizations. Unfortunately their conversation steps on much of the recording, but careful filtering and amplification has salvaged many interesting features, including:

Whoop modified with trailing utterances - At the two second mark of the spectrogram playback, and again at the 15 second mark, a subdued "whoop" vocal is heard. These two whoops are unique with regard to the vocal notes that follow immediately after them. These trailing notes are, to date, not seen in any other potential sasquatch recording. And as a possible first occurrence, this recording takes on added value. This type of call will be listened for in future recordings of possible sasquatch vocalizations.

Moaning howl - At 20 through 29 seconds of the audio playback, a loud vocalizer (louder than the initial two whoops) emits two long moaning howls. These are very similar in construct to the moaning howls heard in the Ohio Howl (1994), Mississippi Howl (2004) and the Florida Howl (2006).

Integrated wood knock - Not a vocalization, but wood knocks are a frequently described signal in suspected sasquatch communications. From 21 to 23 seconds, during the beginning of the first moaning howl, three heavy wood knocks are made. They are difficult to hear in the original audio recording, but show up faintly in the spectrogram as light vertical bars intersecting the howl. With amplification, they are easier to hear in the filtered audio playback. Wood knocks are often integrated into sasquatch vocalizations and can be seen in both the Mississippi and Florida Howl recordings.

Woot vocal - The name of this vocal is an onomatopoeia, or a name that sounds like the thing it describes. This vocal type is not commonly heard, but it has been captured in other audio recordings. In this clip, three possible woots are uttered in rapid succession, at the 31 second mark in the spectrogram playback. They could be mistaken for wood knocks, but the lack of a broadband, woody note suggests these are indeed vocals.

Yell - This vocal type is often long in duration, similar to a moan howl, but it is executed at a higher frequency. The resulting change in tone and timber creates a vocal that sounds very much like a human male yelling in the distance. Heard on its own, it would be completely indistinguishable from a human calling out. But in many instances, the yell vocal is captured in association with other suspected sasquatch vocals. In this recording, an ascending yell vocal begins just before the 32 second mark and climbs steadily in pitch for 3 seconds. Then it breaks to a higher pitched tone, briefly, before breaking again and descending in pitch to the call's conclusion. There are two additional short segments of "yell" in this clip, at the 38 and 42 second marks. But these are integrated into a unique call, discussed below in "pitch changes".

Whistle - From 37 to 38 seconds in the clip, four short notes are emitted, sounding very much like whistles. They could in fact be vocals, but the airy note they contain suggests a whistle. Other examples of this vocal type exist, but more need to be captured before a conclusion might be reached. The first three whistle notes climb rapidly in pitch, and the fourth drops to a lower pitch, below the third. Of interest is the fact that the fourth whistle is emitted during a second, shorter yell vocal from the vocalizer. This suggests a second sasquatch could be uttering the whistles in response.

Falsetto Shriek - This vocal type was probably first captured in the 2004 Mississippi howl recording. It rounds out the sasquatch vocal range, with moan howls at the low end, yell vocals mid range, and the falsetto shriek at the high end, or in the falsetto register (if compared to a human vocal range). This clip contains two falsetto shrieks, the first at the 39 second mark, and the next at the 45 second mark. As the second shriek plays out it drops out and in again at 52 and 55 seconds.

Pitch Changes - The vocals in this recording include abrupt breaks in pitch, to both higher and lower notes. These pitch changes have been observed in other sasquatch vocals with enough regularity to become something of an identifier in themselves. A future blog post will deal more specifically with pitch changes and what's been observed to date. But for this clip the reader should note the minor pitch changes at 35 and 36 seconds, and the significant pitch changes at 39, 42 and 45 seconds. These latter mark the transition from a yell vocal into and out of a falsetto shriek, as described above.

Kentucky is where Bigfooting is at

In a two-week poll we asked Bigfoot Lunch Club fans which websites they visited most. Kentucky Bigfoot came out on top.

There are two good reasons why Kentucky Bigfoot topped our list.

1) Kentucky is a hotspot. The much anticipated Erickson Project has claimed to have convincing evidence from Kentucky. Plus, Kentucky will be showcased in two shows this coming TV season; Finding Bigfoot and Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy.

2) The second and larger reason for Kentucky Bigfoot topping the list is the Organization itself. They are as authentic as researchers can be, extremely organized and they reach out to their audience. They are inclusive and share their research publicly. Their self-described purpose, " to obtain 'one' database as to monitor population density and migration patterns for all reported Kentucky Bigfoot encounters. To determine authenticity, credit is given to each source and witnesses are contacted whenever possible. The information contained therein is being used solely for research and educational purposes.

Lead by Charlie Raymond, a high school teacher and IT Specialist. Charlie holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Florida. He developed this website to document all credible bigfoot encounters in Kentucky. He believes bigfoot to be a "flesh and blood" unidentified hominid, VERY closely related to us.

Out of 165 voters we ended up with 18 listings the top ten list is below.

01.) Kentucky Bigfoot
02.) BFRO
03.) Tristate Bigfoot
04.) Cryptomundo
05.) Oregon Bigfoot
06.) Bigfoot Encounters
07.) MABRC
08.) FB/FB
09.) Bigfoot Field Reporter
10.) Bigfoot Evidence

The pie chart below shows the percentages of the votes with Kentucky Bigfoot commanding 22% of the votes.

Our hats are off to Kentucky Bigfoot, we salute your contribution to bigfooting.

The Wildman of Kentucky, the Mystery of Panther Rock

There is probably no other unknown creature that arouses more curiosity than the Bigfoot or Sasquatch. Yes, there is the Loch Ness Monster, the Chupacabra and other great beasts of Lore but the Bigfoot remains the most compelling as it pulls us towards ourselves…shadowing the unknown X factor of our very origins. The case files contain thousands of reported sightings, yet no actual specimen has ever been found. Hundreds of photographs exist, but the creature has not been identified. Still, the clues accumulate year after year. In the words of one Bigfoot investigator, “It is an extremely complex phenomenon with no starting point and few geographical limits.” If this creature does exist then it most certainly must be a relative of man.

Species? Unknown at this time

In the heart of Kentucky there is an ancient and sacred ground known as Panther Rock. For many years tales of strange events have been reported but never investigated in full. Now, for the first time an intrepid group of explorers ventures into the unknown to discover the truth. Join the Reality Team of Special Investigators as they uncover new Bigfoot witnesses and historical tales. Journey with them into the dark woods of the Frazier Land and witness amazing paranormal and often terrifying events.
