As you can tell from my recent video, “Morning Visits,” I was lucky enough last summer to experience regular interaction with a small group of Sasquatch in a ravine here in northern Vermont. I was not lucky enough, however, to catch a glimpse of them. I only knew they were there because of the sounds they made (which were repetitive and distinctive) and the objects they threw toward me. I was able to record hundreds upon hundreds of wood knocks, both by day and in the middle of the night–by far the most ever recorded in any research situation that has been shared with the public.
This coming spring, I will continue gathering audio in order to learn more about them. But I also intend to film at least one of them–the one who was located closest to me every morning, who was not at all shy with his “drumming,” the one I came to call Music Man. It’s clear that he was no more than 200 feet from where I sat, probably less, but he was obscured by thick forest.
