In previous articles of Hunting Techniques of the Bigfoot we discussed chase hunting and ambush hunting. The articles showed how ancient mankind used ambush hunting and improved upon it by using community efforts to build walls and traps to improve the success of ambush hunting. We also took a look at how this type of effort has been used by the Bigfoot on the Mogollon Rim of Arizona, where they used trees and branches to build barriers to help herd deer and elk to an ambush point where Bigfoot could lay in wait for their intended prey. Unfortunately, before any further data or video could be collected, the area was caught up in a forest fire, and the Bigfoot, humans, and game were forced out of the area. It has been a few years since the fire, and the game has started to return. Some of the trees are recovering, and the underbrush is starting to fill back in. Unfortunately, the Bigfoot has not returned. Therefore, efforts were conducted to try to relocate the Bigfoot and their forced migration locations.
During August 2013, a report was received about a sighting of a Bigfoot which had a peculiar marking to its hair on the back. It had a white blaze between the shoulder blades, but other than that the hair was black and the skin was gray. Another interesting part about this report was it came from two different sets of young women who were riding four wheelers in the area on the north boundary of the Mogollon Rim. Both groups stated it was near what they thought to be a nest.
During September 2013 Mark Larson, A MogollonMonster.com team member conducted several trips into the area to look for the Bigfoot, and to possibly locate the nest. He was successful, or at least he found the nest. During October, Mark and I traveled to the area to conduct a search and investigation in the area of the nest. We located our camp approximately one hundred yards away from a watering hole, and set up our audio equipment and game camera to monitor the area. One thing we had noticed about the water hole was the grass around the edge of the water was smashed down from heavy use of animals in the area. We figured this would be a great place to set up to listen to vocalizations.
