Specifically what are Bigfoot vocalizations? Are they communications, primal screams or mating calls? During Bigfoot research many researchers are finding the vocalizations to be for various purposes. The primal screams often recorded may have a much different meaning or function than the growls, moans, or mimics, while the chatter in the bushes is quite obviously language.
Screams and bellowing may have various uses. These are generally very high volume and may be heard echoing though the mountains. Two such vocalizations have been recorded by MogollonMonster.com team members. The first bellow was very long and drawn out and sounded very mournful. The recording was taken moments after two gun shots rang out in the distance. The firearm reports came from a distance further away than the vocalizations. The researchers theorized the screams were either a creature that had been shot, or a mate that was mourning for a companion. The scream was of such volume, the vibration in the throat of the animal could be heard between the screams as it drew a breath.
The second scream was much more of a bellow (Heard in the embedded video for this article). The vocalization took place at approximately 4:30 am just prior to the Sun coming up. The call seemed to be coming from the top of a large mountain ridge. There was not as much emotion in the vocalization, and this led the researchers to believe the bellow as a notice for all to come home before daylight.
Animal mimic calls may be used at various times to allow transfer information as to the location, or readiness when conducting hunting, stocking, or surveillance techniques. This is done to keep from spooking the prey or subject of surveillance. It is a technique that is much like the old west cowboy movies when the Indians were in position prior to the attack on the intruding Cowboys.
Bigfoot whistles also, and this may be combined with mimicking bird calls. It may be a type of sound location much like the squeaks (sonar) use to locate the prey or objects that might be in their flight path. This is not totally out of the realm of possibility because some sight impaired humans also have this ability using clicks produced by the tongue, or various other sounds they are able to track their surroundings.
This series of articles will cover various samples of vocalizations, their possible uses, and meanings. Of course, the meanings are derived from circumstances, times, and locations during the events. It is definitely subject that deserves further study.
