A Report out of Nebraska

Last weekend at this time I had just finished up my presentation at the Nebraska Bigfoot Conference in Hastings, Nebraska.  Even though it was in the morning I was still a little shell shock at how many people were at the conference.  I WAS HOPING TO HAVE AT LEAST 100 PEOPLE FOR BOTH FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY!  We ended up with at least 650+ people.  We kept having to add chairs to our room.

What was my impression of the conference?  This beautiful state is filled with wonderful people who are interested in Bigfoot.  Either from some type of interaction or from just an interest or heard stories shared from family and friends.  I had so much fun meeting and getting to know people there.  One young man who was about 5 years old stood out.  His name is Lane and he had told me he had a Bigfoot birthday party this year.  He said he wants to invite me to his next birthday.  I hope he does and if I am in Nebraska I plan on going.

I did have many people talk to me about some type of Bigfoot activity they had experienced.  Two really grabbed my attention.  Both of them had pictures to go along with the story.  One I have to be patient because we have to get permission from the landowner and it may take a while.  The other was Tammy.  She showed me a structure.  Just looking at it may not seem like it is something but...
then I asked her I think 3 questions.  After she answered them I looked even more closely at the picture.  I think I surprised her when I asked if I could go see it the next day.  Thank goodness I was staying for an extra day or it was going to be a long late drive back to Colorado.

My picture of the structure:

What do you think of it?  At first glanced it doesn't really seemed like anything but...

I have seen something like this at one of my locations only it had broke in the middle.  I was interested in the picture because of that but when I had asked her several questions I knew I wanted to go see it.  I surprised her with my interest because she had shown this to others but I was the only one that wanted to go see it.  After visiting the location and talking with her about some activity, I knew I wanted to investigate more.  Let me tell you some things about this structure that may point to it being Bigfoot related.

The tree is about 30-40 years old.  The arch is 10'5" tall and 9'6" wide.  The top of the tree that is in the ground is deeper than 4".  The tree is twisted and one branch grew down and around the arch which made it look like a snow break until you look closely and see it is a branch and not part of the truck of the tree.

Tammy had a Horticulturist look at her pictures.  After looking at the pictures closely she said it was manipulated and not naturally made because of these factors:

  • It would be more asymmetrical from wind or snow.  So the formation was too vertical on both sides.
  • Top appeared to be buried straight and deep into the ground with the shoots growing out from the surrounding soil.
  • The tree is very stressed due to the twisting and binding.  It is killing the tree which conflicts with its natural inclination towards surviving.
  • Shading from other trees is not a factor since there are no trees close enough for it to seek out alternative growth.
  • The tree base is directly behind the tree and opposite to the direction of the buried top.  This is not a natural growth pattern of a willow seeking water.
We know that Native Americans used trees as trail markers but the tree is only 30-40 years old.  So that is not a factor on how it was manipulated by man.  This is in a pasture of a farm for live stock so it is not part of a shelter belt.  So this will factor out the farmer. 


So I asked Tammy some questions about the previous owners and themselves.  There are indications from her answers this may be Bigfoot related.  The location of the farm to rivers, creeks and the remoteness is one possibility and some weird things that have happened may point to a group coming to this farm.  During my presentation I had talked briefly about marbles.  At this farm this is happening too along with pieces of mirrors and feathers.

If you hear people scoff about Nebraska not being squatchy enough for Bigfoot and are only in a couple areas then they have not looked closely.  I have changed my stance on this when I started to look more closely at Nebraska.  There are strong indications that my original thinking and of many others are wrong.  Very wrong.  I have learned over years that what I assume of many things about Bigfoot is wrong and usually the opposite of what I was assuming.  You would have thought I would have learned from this but no.  I am still learning.  LOL  I have to remember that they are primates who are highly adaptable.  What does Nebraska have that they would adapt to?  Water-there are many rivers and creeks that crisscross the state; Food-farms and lots of deer; places to hide-there are places for them to hide, maybe not what we traditionally think of but there are places; Not many people-there are wide open spaces with farmland.  Plus people don't traditionally talk about stuff like this with others.  Since Bigfoot is considered not real, any stories or reports will not be taken seriously.  Which helps Bigfoot.

So if you want to continue not to believe they have a strong presence in Nebraska and I also suspect Kansas then go ahead and continue.  Bigfoot has no problem with you having this stance.  To the ones who have had Bigfoot experiences or activity in Nebraska, I believe you because what I have been finding does support what you have had happened.

NEVER SAY NEVER in regards to Bigfoot.

The Nebraska Bigfoot Conference in Hastings

February 17 & 18, 2017 there was a Bigfoot conference in Nebraska.  Harriett McFeely was the person who dream and then made this happen.  She had been scoffed at, laughed at and many tried to discouraged her to not have the conference.  Well, guess what?  We had at least 250 people on Friday night and well over 400 people on Saturday.  That was at least 650 people!  In Nebraska!

Where there is a will there is a way.  In this case a wonderful woman who had a dream and made it happen.  Now we have the community and others approaching us for next year.  Yes, we are having another one next year.  We are already planning it.  Just one thing that is a slight problem-we need to find a venue big enough for us.  LOL

So look at the link to see some pictures.  The pictures and video was from a reporter from the newspaper in Omaha.  We had several reporters there.

Guess what?

There are Bigfoot in Nebraska and there is a lot of interest from the locals too.  I am getting ready to write another post for this blog from a woman who may have Bigfoot activity on her farm.  You will want to read it.  I am still amazed about it.

Bigfoot on Native American Reservation in Nebraska

Some friends and I were invited to go to a Native American reservation this weekend in Nebraska.  I got off of work a little bit early to drive to there on Friday so I could spend all of my Saturday there.  It was a long tiring drive but well worth the trip.  It is always a pleasure to see Harriett.  Then you add the new friends I made this weekend and it was even more enjoyable.  Meeting Jimmy Lee, Joyce, Barry, DW and Richard was wonderful. Whenever I can expand my circle of Bigfoot friends it is always fun and makes my journey of discovery even more endearing.

Let me tell you of our weekend:

Harriett, Jimmy Lee and I went to the Lincoln area to meet up with Joyce and she drove us to Macy to meet up with Barry and DW on the reservation.  We had a cabin reserved there for Saturday night.  Barry, Richard and DW had made plans with the rest of their group to take us out to explore their active Bigfoot areas.  There was even a night walk planned for 1:00 am. 

During the day they took us down by the Missouri River where there has been a lot of Bigfoot activity.  We found some structures and maybe a half print. 
What was interesting with the arch was the top of the tree was rammed into the ground.  In fact all three branches of different lengths were rammed in.  I have never seen this before.  Very, very interesting.  And it was by a couple of other structures.

Then we went back to the cabins.  Then we went out to eat.  We got back later and some of us (me especially) went into our cabin and slept for a couple of hours before the late night walk.  I was still very tired from the drive and lack of sleep.  For me to chose sleep over talking Bigfoot means I was exhausted.  I wanted to be ready at 1:00 am and then still be able to drive home on Sunday.

I am going to say that my day time investigations are fun and intriguing but the real fun is the night time investigations in an active Bigfoot area.  The group there did not disappoint me.  Now I want to go out here in Colorado but there is over 6 feet of snow and no way to get in there.  LOL  The whole thing of going out exploring with no lights on and with limited vision gets your adrenaline going.  Especially when things start to happen.

We were divided into 2 groups.  Young sweet Jimmy Lee and I went with DW and George.  They were taking us to a spot that is haunted AND an active Bigfoot location.  COOL!  I was ready.  Jimmy Lee who has never been out before was a bit nervous but ready to go.  I think I was not what the men were expecting when they knew that 4 women were coming.  I know Harriett told them that I have been out in the field and have been actively investigating here in Colorado and other states but I don't think they were prepared for how much I knew and how to act.  My calm presence helped Jimmy Lee and also helped her to move pass her fear.  I feel lucky to now call her my friend and plan on taking her out in the future there in Nebraska and here in Colorado.  She got a taste and now is hooked.  LOL

I will tell you that I do have fear out there but I have learned to control it and to stand my ground when I can.  Running and freaking out will have you lose out on an opportunity and the experience if you let it rule you.  I just stand my ground and swallow my fear.  This night though I wasn't fearful.  But my adrenaline was in high gear and made me wish it was warmer and no snow in Colorado.  I want more. 

Usually when I am in a group especially when it is a new location for me, I try to separate myself from the group a little and make my presence know in a low key but friendly way to let the group there know I am aware of them but respectful.  Any location I go to I use my special whistle along with my voice and whoops.  At this location I don't think whistling has been used before and it definitely attracted their attention. 

The guys announced us and introduced Jimmy Lee and I.  When I had walked away from the group and did my whistle there was movement and sounds indicating they were coming towards me.  After I heard some noises that were not quite whoops but not growls, more like a soft huffs, I called Jimmy Lee to me so she can experience the sounds and movements.  She came over and stood there with me and we both watched the shadows moving around and hearing I am thinking 3 with 2  in front of us and one behind us.  At one point she grabbed my hand but I was proud of her.  She stood her ground with me and experienced all that was going on.  Then we walked closer to the guys.

I asked for some eye shine and I saw several come on and off.  I was able to show Jimmy Lee where they were and how to move around a little to try to see more.  They were moving around and flashing quick eye shine towards us.  At one point I wanted to go down into the area where the eye shine was so I asked the group if they were OK for me to walked down there.  As soon as I took a step down, a medium sized branch was thrown towards me and landed just to the left of me right by the tree line.  I backed off and then walked some more back where I started and then walked over past where the guys were.  Then I did my talking, whooping and whistling.  When I saw more eye shine I was able to show everyone where they were.  Jimmy Lee watched and would follow me when I wanted her with me.  Then I went down the road into where the eye shine was.  I did not go too far but was hoping to get to the curve and go back behind where the eye shine was seen but I think they figured out where I wanted to go.  So I stopped and whistled and talked.  Jimmy Lee followed me.  The guys were behind us and not as far down as we were.  Then there was a dark tall shape that moved towards us with eye shine.  At that point I realized I should not moved further down, closer to the curve so I just stood there.  Jimmy Lee stood with me.  The others moved back up and stood by the car.  We watched the eye shine and then saw 2 other sets go off and on.  One was showing red the whole time and the other went green and white.  At this point I thought it was an impasse and I should be the one to move back up.  As we moved back up we had one right up on the road to our left.  It was close and was showing very bright green eye shine!  We saw it blink and you can tell it was moving its head to watch all of us.  It just stood there and did not leave.  Jimmy Lee was so excited to see it.  As soon as I approached it, it moved and we did not see the eye shine again.  We heard a howl off in the distance and then the coyotes started up.  The guys wanted to take us to another location so we got back into the car and left.  This was a perfect experience to show how eye shine looks and how they use it.  For them to use it with 2 strangers there was impressive to me.  I think being female and respectful but approachable may have made them curious of the 2 females that knew they were there and knew what their eye shine was.  I also think the whistle helped too.

We did not have any more experiences but that was OK because the first location was great.  The other group did not have anything happen.  But you should expect that this will happen.  We were lucky that the group was where we were.

I will make a disclaimer here and say we did not have our flashlights or head lamps on so there was no reflections.  I walk around with no lights on.  If you don't believe me you can ask the ones who have gone out with me before.  Also we were below the skyline.  Plus the eye shine did not stay in one spot but moved around.  Several times we were able to see 2-3 sets at the same time.  The bright green eye shine by the road we saw blinked.  I also saw the dark shape with the eye shine move its eyes around and blink.  We were in a deserted location with no one else around.  What else could it be?

So when Barry asked me if I want to come back, guess what my answer was?


This is another example of how an active Bigfoot location will make someone go from wondering to believer with one experience.  Jimmy Lee has no doubt now.  Locations like this will do it without someone trying to convince.  Its better this way.

So my friends:
