  1. RCS82 responds:

    I find it a bit suspicious how blurry it is, even this close up. I’ve seen a bunch of these photos of deer and bears while helping my brother check his game cameras, and I never saw anything this blurry with everything around it so sharp.

    It you look at it up close, it looks like someone may have used a blur tool on it…

  2. Austin Morrow responds:

    Doesn’t look like a Bigfoot to me. Arms are way too short, the overall body build looks way more like a bear, and the hind legs seem to show a bear running through the forest, not a Bigfoot walking quadrupedally.

  3. squatchman responds:

    Looks more like a monkey.

  4. mandors responds:

    One of the commenters on the F&S website suggested it was a lynx. No sure about that. The head looks wrong, but it’s moving so it could be a foreshortening issue. The front paws/legs don’t look right for a lynx either, but could be same issue. What’s the white box, center left in the background?

  5. Miles Walter Martin via Facebook responds:

    Looks more like they captured a picture of The Flash. Someone should call the Justice League to let them know.

  6. Pete Fischer via Facebook responds:

    Hello, we need to get serious eyes on this shot. We need a where and a when and some computer enhancement. This sort of thing is just odds on bound to be true someday. Like the internet story about a dying/deceased body found in the wake of a Forrest could happen.

  7. Sebastian Wang via Facebook responds:

    That’s a bear.

  8. Pete Fischer via Facebook responds:

    Seriously, somebody me Don Jeffrey Meldrum.

  9. Peter Von Berg responds:

    Uncle Harry, is that you? Laughable

  10. gridbug responds:

    I want to believe.

  11. orion24 responds:

    I would say Yes it could be a Bigfoot, But there’s no Crest on the head, It’s too round, Plus trail cams rarely do motion blurs, A sequence of the photos before and after would maybe help, This is up for grabs.

  12. Richard888 responds:

    Nothing immediately recognizable. It could be more than one type of large animal blasting through such as a female elk. No second snapshot?

  13. Goodfoot responds:

    Hmmm. A TRULY oddly-shaped head… legs look too short, knees in the wrong place. And that BACK looks like it’s got a RUG on it!!

    I’m not biting on this. Not yet.

  14. shownuff responds:

    My brain while starring at this image is saying, “Whoa, It’s a Bigfoot.” But the head is all wrong. Unless it offended the same Witch Doctor from BeatleJuice and got the Magic powder that shrunk its head.

  15. etheral responds:

    Looks really odd to me. As a person who uses Photoshop daily as part of my job, this looks like something that’s been doctored. Nothing about it cries real to me. It almost looks like a bear on the rear end and I have no idea what’s going on with the front end.

    As usual, a photo of Bigfoot is blurry. Trail cams get thousands of clear pictures every day, but when it’s a supposedly a Bigfoot, it comes out distorted. I understand they can move incredibly fast, but…

    I’ll keep hoping for that photo that really shows us something detailed.

  16. Insanity responds:

    The white block in the background looks to be a salt block/lick, deers are attracted to them to get salt.

    The posture doesn’t appear to be bipedal, and the forelimb looks to slim to belong to a large non-human primate.

    It is obviously blurred, but doesn’t appear to be motion blur.

  17. Redrose999 responds:

    If not photoshop and abuse of the blur option, it’s got to be a bear. Legs are short and the upper torso doesn’t look ape enough to me.

  18. happycebu responds:

    It looks like it is wearing a football helmet.

  19. Desertdweller responds:

    I see nothing here that looks like a lynx.

    I think it is the often-photographed Blobsquatch.

  20. Audie Kennedy via Facebook responds:


  21. DWA responds:

    Well, if he was trying to duplicate the Jacobs photos, nice job!

    Other than that, I don’t know what the heck that is, and neither do you.

  22. Fhqwhgads responds:

    STRONG BAD: And then, one day, the Bear-holding-a-shark got the break all made-up creatures dream of. {Taps the Bear-Shark with his stick a couple times} {The screen becomes more and more blurry, and zooms further and further into Strong Bad, on each word:} Blurry photographic evidence.

    {Cut to Homestar Runner}

    HOMESTAR RUNNER: Now, I’m a little fuzzy on the details. But I was in the woods, walking my dog, Pom Pom. All of a sudden, he started growlin’ and poopin’ all over the place {chuckles}. And that’s when I saw it.

    {Static, then cut to a very fuzzy video reel of the Bear-Shark walking through the woods.}

    HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} A very. Scary. Monsterm’n.

  23. Goodfoot responds:

    Maybe a bear. One of my first thoughts was a SHEEP! The whole thing looks highly hinky to me. Probably motion-blurred, at least.

    Of course, we can’t see the original image, right?

  24. Craig Woolheater responds:

    Can’t see the original image? As far as I know, that is the original image. If it really is a game cam image, it has the date and time stamp on the bottom border of the photo. I just resized it to fit it on the page here. Click on the photo and it will display in the original size as it was posted on Field & Stream’s website.

  25. JE_McKellar responds:

    If you follow the left forelimb up, you can see the bear’s muzzle pointing downwards, and then the left eye right above that. The ears are huge, though, big mickey-mouse things. Maybe it’s a cub caught at a bad angle, hence the out-sized ears.

  26. Goodfoot responds:

    PETE FISCHER: wasn’t that story from Thom Powell’s book, and took place in northern Nevada?

  27. DWA responds:

    I will say that anyone looking at this blog should do themselves a favor and click on over to the site, and see all the photos. Some really cool stuff there.

  28. Insanity responds:


    The only ones I saw with any motion blur were the pair of deer boxing each other. There was one of a deer raised on its hind legs, looked like it was surprised by a raccoon, and that one had very little motion blur, but had to be moving.

    Just thinking if the blurring here is motion, it had to be moving quite fast.

    I do agree with the possibility it’s a bear cub, their ears look large in relation to their body.
