Recently, the MogollonMonster.com team returned to the original hunting ambush area to see if the Bigfoot had moved back into the area. The vegetation was not as thick, and the original nest was completely destroyed. The forest seemed to be a bit thin for successful hunting by the Bigfoot. It was time to put some boots on the ground and see if there was any evidence of Bigfoot in the area.
One anomaly noticed where the number of holes in the ground. Normally, when a forested area burns, there will be holes created by burned out stumps, but these holes didn't seem to fit this explanation. The first thing noticed was the lack of ashes or charcoal in the bottom of the holes. There was no dirt around the edges which fit the burned out stump theory, but the number of holes and the uniform size of the holes didn't fit. The holes were approximately two feet in diameter, and about three feet deep. There did not seem to be any remnants of roots, but a few of the holes looked as if a squirrel had taken advantage of the dirt and created some burros around the bottom edge.
Trying to look at the area with a Bigfoot’s mind set, we noticed the holes were at the top of small ridges to where they were totally invisible until you topped the ridge. At a walking pace, this would present no danger, but if a deer or elk was being herded through the area on a dead run, these holes would make very effective traps. The holes would not be deep enough to trap and hold the prey, but it would easily break a leg which would make the prey an easy target to finish off by the Bigfoot.
How effective are these holes? It didn't take long to find a deer carcass on the top of one of the ridges. The carcass had a broken leg, and the body was stripped of the meat leaving the skeleton intact. I did notice that this body still had its head attached. It was a nice two point buck. The head remaining with the body is not typical of other high probability Bigfoot kills found in the area, but it did not look as if another predator had taken the deer. Typically, a lion or Bear rips and tears at the carcass, and the skeleton is not in one piece for very long.
This concludes the series of Hunting Techniques of the Bigfoot. It is interesting to note most people who hunt and enjoy the outdoors are not aware of these subtile clues left behind by the Sasquatch and are more than willing to write off strange events and places to being mountain lions, bears, or mankind. Some realize, "We have been living with them all along, convinced they were something else...Not willing to believe."
