Stillwater Minnesota Bigfoot Video

The above picture is from a frame of a new video that has been making some ripples on the internet. The white outline is ours to demonstrate a few things. One, this is probably the best frame from the video and without the context of the rest of the action, it would have been hard to distinguish the actual Sasquatch. Two, this is the best frame of the video and it gets us no closer to confirming it is a real Sasquatch.

All this is true, but we are firm believers that it is not just the destination it is the journey. Half the fun is getting there. And if we had a third aphorism that made us feel better for not discovering bigfoot yet, we would include it here also.

So let's enjoy the journey, long-time fans know we don't post on every you-tube video that pops up. If you want video analysis, no one does it better that FBFB (Facebook Find Bigfoot) No one does it better. No one.

It comes as no surprise that when a local weekly paper in Minnesota, City Pages does a report on a the Stiollwater bigfoot the video analysys they us is FBFB's.

Below is the article along with the embedded FBFB analysis

Bigfoot sighting in Minnesota woods [VIDEO]
By Mike Mullen Fri., Aug. 12 2011 at 9:47 AM

​Now that the Department of Natural Resources claims to have solved Minnesota's chupacabra mystery, they're going to have to tell us what the hell this thing is.

A Minnesota farmer and his wife were walking in the woods north of Stillwater one July night, when they saw a strange animal, according to a new YouTube video. The couple thought they'd come upon a deer, but heard a "low odd sounding grunt," and decided to get closer and see what it was.

"Doesn't look like a deer to me," the farmer explains in the set-up to the video.

In the video clip the man captured that night -- now the subject of a thorough investigation by a Youtube curator called "SasquatchWatcher" -- a large, red-haired figure is seen passing through the woods for a single fleeting moment.

The tape, as discovered by Karl Bremer at Ripple in Stillwater, is described as taken "near the St. Croix river." Great. Maybe this Bigfoot can be used to fish out some of those flying Asian carp.

According to SasquatchWatcher's expert analysis, the object seen strolling through the woods is, of course, an Auburn Sasquatch. In the video, he analyzes the footage and compares it to other existing footage of Bigfoot (Bigfeet?).

The movement, the coloring, the size, the musculature... there can only be one answer: Bigfoot, the auburn Sasquatch.

"The filmer," the video explains, "answered a few questions, realized this was serious, and wisely chose not to pursue it."

Shady Neighbors the Website

Thom Powell has created a website to promote his new book Shady Neighbors. You may know Thom as the acclaimed author of The Locals

The site is a great supplement to his book. Included on the site is an interactive map, called Shady Places. The map highlights locations that inspired the book. If you read the book and reference the map you can find the squatchiest locations in Clackamas County, Oregon. According to Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, Clackamas County has the highest rate of reported sightings.

Best of all you can get signed copies of The Locals and Shady Neighbors from the man himself. The Locals is out of print and Thom only has a few left himself. Buy Thoms books here.

Finally, Thom has some great videos of the moments when they first discovered the body print of the Skookum Cast, as well as the footage of the casting.

Thom plans on continuing to expand his website, share his creative writing process, and intrigue us with his take on the Sasquatch phenomenon. We will keep you posted as updates occur.

Thom Powell Featured in Ethos Magazine

They do a great job covering the Sasquatch topic while visiting Thom Powell. Below is a little teaser with a link to the full article on Thom Powell's new site (we will cover the new site tomorrow).

Suddenly, Wilson shatters the eerie silence with an agitated spurt of barks. Powell’s flashlight flicks on. Its beam pierces the darkness, scanning the scattered pine trees for a glimpse of what alarmed the dog. A pair of eyeballs hovers in the blackness like a pair of glowing orbs. Powell edges forward to get a closer look. As his flashlight’s radius increases, the fiendish night beast is revealed to be a mere cow.

Powell looks back with a barely discernible, wry grin. “I hear coyotes all the time. There have been wolf sightings, too,” he says in a grave whisper. “Sometimes it takes nerves of steel to be out here. I figure I’ll be OK as long as I can run faster than you.”

For Powell, this is not an ordinary stroll through the woods. These are lands he has traversed hundreds of times with a specific purpose in mind. He is on the prowl for a creature more formidable than a pack of coyotes and more elusive than a wolf: Powell is searching for Sasquatch.
