THE OHIO HOWLER STRIKES AGAIN - A Bigfoot Investigation
Location: Ohio County, KY (private property)
Terrain: Miles from the nearest home; dense woods, scattered pastures, hollows and hills. Accessible from only one direction by 4x4.
Weather: Very clear, no wind and bitterly cold, reaching a low of 16 degrees.
History: Over a dozen bigfoot reports from this area along with odd vocalizations heard frequently (as recent as 12-17-13).
At 8:46pm, after making a fire, Nishea, Brent and myself (Charlie) hiked away from base camp in a NW direction. Mary, Paul and three children stayed at basecamp with the two trucks. Don arrived later in the evening after the vocalizations occurred.
Upon reaching the top of a small hill we decided to do tree knocks (one at a time). A few minutes after each knock we would hear a faint single response knock. We radioed to basecamp to make sure it wasn't them and to make sure it wasn't a truck door slamming. Brent and Nishea scanned the area often with the FLIRs, but no heat source was noticed. The knocks seemed to emanate from a dense cedar thicket to our right. We decided to walk down the hill into a hollow and reluctantly enter the cedar thicket (except Nishea, she spearheaded the charge!) After emerging out the opposite side of the cedar thicket we noticed what appeared to be a light flash in the distance directly in front of us, about 300 yards through the trees. It was at this point (10:44pm) we thought for sure we had company! We were certain it was coon hunters, teenagers or other squatchers--THE REASON WE KEPT TALKING BEFORE AND DURING THE HOWLS, thus unfortunately stepping on the vocalizations. We assumed our base camp was up the hill to our right! We initially thought “a person” made the first two howls. After the vocalizations occurred and we walked up the hill and it was at this point we realized the lights we had noticed were the interior lights of one of “our” trucks at basecamp (the children had gone inside the truck). The camp fire was not noticeable initially from our position down in the hollow because it was on the opposite of the trucks AND much too far away.
After reconvening back at basecamp, we set out in the direction of the howls with Don and some FLIRs. There was nothing but miles of dark wilderness. The coyotes came within yards of our position a few times throughout the night. It was finally around 3am that we called it an evening.
We are almost certain these initial howls were NOT made by a human. We were miles deep in the remote wilderness away from any person and we carefully searched the area. The initial howls got the coyotes riled up, which is typical.
- Listen carefully to the first 2-3 howls!
6-27-13 Barren County - Howl and Tree Knocks
met Chris at his uncle's property on 6-27-13 to investigate the location
of these recordings. The area is a dense forest, home to a long history
of nearby bigfoot encounters. Chris explained that on 4-11-13 he was
checking the property just before turkey season and did not have his
rifle with him at the time. He began hearing these strange knocks and
got a real uneasy feeling. He took out his cell phone and began recording,
capturing 3 tree knocks and a weird howl.
We had these clips analyzed by the hightly respected bigfoot sound expert, Monongahela.
is what he to say:
But the clip with the vocal has more than just one. Earlier in the clip, at about the 30 second mark, there is a fainter vocal followed by a light wood knock. I've clipped the two vocals out and put them into the attached "study" for your perusal.
I've also filtered the two original clips for you to hear the knocks and vocals in their original context.
One other thing to note. During the knocks clip, just before the three loud knocks start, there's a "growl" type vocal. But it's hard to hear because the witness was walking in dry leaves just then.
Suggest to him in the future that when he hears something, he remain completely still and quiet, and wait a long time until all the vocals and knocks are complete."
Allen County - "The Kentucky Vocalizations"
I had a two hour phone conversation with the witness Billy Arndell of The Scottsville Ghost Hunters. In my opinion, on April 10, 2010 he obtained the best sasquatch vocalizations to come out of Kentucky. It was midnight and his team was standing in the yard of an abandon house. A digital recorder had been left inside on a box by a window as the investigators were discussing their night's investigation. There were no windows in the house. They began hearing strange howls/moans off in the distance. The vocalizations started coming closer, sparking a few barking dogs. Billy said it seemed like it was approaching fairly rapidly. One of the members can be heard saying "that sounds like a bigfoot". They grabbed the rest of their gear and left promptly. Billy stated there's dense woods behind the house for at least for two miles, then some open fields, then more woods. Not knowing if he caught the vocalizations on his recorder, he was pleasantly surprised when he later reviewed the audio. He stated the vocalizations were much louder in person.
Although I knew right away these were sasquatch vocalizations, I wanted a sound expert, more specifically a "bigfoot sound expert" to review the audio file. Therefore I promptly sent the file over to my friend and fellow researcher, Mononga Hela. Mononga is a former U.S. Military Cryptologic Linguist who's specialty now is analyzing and documenting all bigfoot vocalizations. Over the past few years he has compiled a vast database of sasquatch sounds via the internet, friends and investigations. Here is what he had to say:
gave the file a good listen, then filtered it, and the listened to it
again. Despite the overall quality of the recording, it is an astounding
piece of evidence and ties together three different vocalization types
that I've heard in numerous other possible sasquatch recordings. Among
those three vocals are the low moan/howl, similar to the Ohio howl.
Then a transition to more of a yell, which is frequently captured in
Washington state, and finally an "aaahh" vocal which has been
captured in many states (including your clip from Kentucky last October).
Thanks a bunch for sharing this. It's a remarkable recording and based on the extensive audio base I have to compare it against, I wholly agree that its a sasquatch vocalization."

After about 3 hours we obtained some excellent tree knocks. The knocks were less than 50 yards away. A 30 ft tall tree shaking from the same cedar thicket was noticed as well. The knocks only began after we made a single knock. Over a twenty minute period we communicated with what we strongly believe was a Sasquatch: sending and receiving almost a dozen knocks at various times. These knocks were received after we made a few whistles.
