Hi All, Besides the normal Jersey Devil fare, I was wondering if anyone else has had any other strange experiences in the pines. I noticed there is a new bigfoot report from June of this year and was curious. We had a recent experience around the Carranza memorial late one night recently.

Sorry @Wicked Garden ... but as soon as you mention Bigfoot, things go downhill rapidly around here. :)

My dictionary defines "paranormal" as:

"denoting events or phenomena such as telekinesis or clairvoyance that are beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding"

Do you think Bigfoot fits into that category? I'd argue that it doesn't, because it's presumably just an elusive animal of some sort that could be explained by science. I have an open mind about "paranormal experiences".... like someone seeing a vision of their grandmother in woods, then learning that she just passed away when they return home for example. But I just can't accept that there are large creatures like Bigfoot in the Pines. We like to think of it as a "vast wilderness", but it's not. It's full of roads, homes and people. Planes and helicopters constantly fly overhead. The Pines are a small part of one of the smallest and most densely populated states in the union.

If you look at some of the large, sparsely populated states in the Pacific Northwest, then you *might* make an argument for the existence of these mysterious creatures. But here in New Jersey.... well... (sorry) it just seems ridiculous to me.

What kind of experience did you have near the Carranza Memorial? Perhaps there could be a more serious discussion of that topic?

clever using a character from a 60’s TV series as an avatar to stay anonymous, no doubt everyone who watched that show except you is dead. We actually didn’t see footprints of any kind, we saw something else entirely. It’s an interesting place at night, lotsa traffic in and out. That being said I absolutely believe in a physical Bigfoot not in SJ

Local indian lore mentions Wematugumis, they wove the image onto blankets, had it on their shields etc... Wematugumis, Albatwitch, Pukwudgies all described in the same way, wood Woves in Europe. The Bigfoot report at the preserve sounds exactly like those creatures, very interesting!

Oh believe me I"m not anonymous.Many on this board know exactly who I am and believe it or not I am far from being the oldest on here.I"d also say I"ve never seen anyone before you who looked like a W. How creative!

It’s amazing no skull was recovered. Everything else could certainly disappear over time. How far could this guy have gotten at his age? The fact that the bait was still in the vehicle is odd as well and indicates abduction.
