Finding Bigfoot Season Three - Illinois Field Notes

Our area of focus in western IL

Most of the bigfoot sightings that occur in Illinois happen in the very southern part of the state, but there was one main attraction about going further north than this: Stan Courtney. Stan has been actively pursuing bigfoots for a long time, and over the years we have become friends.

Stan was one of my influences in bigfooting in that his diligence in collecting data in the form of sound recordings is admirable. He routinely puts out a parabolic dish to obtain recordings of whatever noises the forest has to offer. While many of these sounds are the vocalizations of typical forest animals, there are some that defy identification and could very well be bigfoots.

  1. Hey Cliff, that reminds me of 2 wood knocks heard at 2 different spots outside of Boise ID. Going towards Bogus Basin area, where you can see the city. That was an awesome Birthday gift they gave you. Can't wait to see the next season's Finding bigfoot. Best of luck to you.
