I find it fascinating that sightings of giant, hairy, bipedal animals predate the modern era. Over 170 years ago, the Arkansas Wild Man terrified residents of that state. The first published report in 1846 claimed a footprint was discovered in eastern Arkansas that measured 22 inches.

In 1851, the Vermont Watchman and State Journal reported that two men were hunting in Greene County, Arkansas, when they saw something “bearing the unmistakable likeness of humanity” chasing a herd of cattle. “He was of gigantic stature, the body being covered with hair, and the head with long locks that fairly enveloped his neck and shoulders.” The creature stopped and stared at them for a few moments and then ran into a patch of woods “with great speed, leaping from twelve to fourteen feet at a time.” The newspaper went on to explain that sightings of the Wild Man had been reported in St. Francis, Greene, and Poinsett counties since 1834.

Many local residents believed the Wild Man was a human survivor of the great 1811-1812 New Madrid Earthquake who had turned feral while living in the woods. Two prominent Memphis men organized a search party to try to capture him, but nothing else is known of their attempt. According to the Ashland (Ohio) Union, the elusive creature was spotted again near the Sunflower Prairie during the winter of 1856, and some men gave chase with hunting dogs.The Wild Man tried to flee across the frozen Brant Lake, but the ice was too thin and he retreated back to the bank. The first man who arrived reported seeing “an athletic man about six feet four inches high, covered with hair of a brownish cast.”

Although within easy range, the hunter decided to capture the Wild Man rather than shoot him. It was a bad idea. According to the newspaper, “The wild man . . . bounded upon him, dragged him from the saddle and tore him in a dreadful manner, gouging one of his eyes, and biting a large piece out of his shoulder. He then threw the saddle and bridle from the horse and mounted. He set off for the mountains at full speed, guiding the horse with a piece of sapling.”

Twelve years later, a “Mississippi Wild Man” was encountered in southwestern Mississippi. According to the Cambria Freeman (Ebensburg, Pa.), a similar creature had been seen near Vicksburg the year before. In the former incident, some hunters were following a pack of dogs hot on the trail of an unknown animal when they discovered a footprint in the mud. It “appeared similar to the track of a human foot, and they observed also that the toes of one foot turned backward.”

Many local residents believed the Wild Man was a human survivor of the great 1811-1812 New Madrid Earthquake who had turned feral while living in the woods.

When the dogs finally bayed their prey, the men “beheld a frightful looking creature, of about the average height of man, but of far greater muscular development, standing menacingly in front of the dogs. It had long hair flowing from its head, reaching to it [sic] knees; its entire body, also, seemed to be covered with hair of two to three inches in length, which was of a dark brown color. From its upper jaw projected two very large tusks, several inches long.”

The Wild Man ran towards the Mississippi River when the men advanced, but the dogs once again bayed him at the river bank. When the dogs attacked, “it reached forward and grabbed one of them, . . pressed it against its tusks, pierced it through and killed it instantly.” The hunters fired several shots and the creature jumped into the river and remained submerged for several minutes.

Suddenly, it surfaced “uttering shrieks which almost petrified the pursuers with terror. No similar sound had ever come to the ears of the men, who were all familiar with the howl of the wolf, the whine of the panther and the hoarse bellowing of the alligator. After sinking and rising several times, it swam to the Louisiana shore and disappeared.” Some time later, other Wild Men were reported near Vicksburg and Meadeville.

What is interesting about the Mississippi Wild Man is that the people believed it to be an unknown creature, not a feral human, and did not ridicule the witnesses. The newspaper even suggested that the area around Meadeville was suitable for such animals. “Throughout Franklin county there are retreats especially adapted to the accommodation of wild beasts, [such] as the high barren hills, ravines, and the dense vine-matted swamp of the Homochitto river.”

TWISTED TREE’S (Something you should Consider)


, , ,

This is something I’ve also often spoke on and I find that people neglect and ignore this kind of information when it’s very important to understand how nature grows. More specifically trees in general.

I wanted to share this video to give you a little bit of insight in hopes that it will give you a more objective view and approach when observing broken and twisted trees.

As many of us fellow Bigfoot researchers and enthusiasts step foot out into the field, we find ourselves very anxious and excited to what we might find that we can relate or associate to The elusive Bigfoot.

I like to keep this basic, however I feel that is necessary to share this information with you as some of you already know this information but some of you I believe need to hear this. One of the most common findings that we like to point fingers and give credit to Bigfoot is tree brakes and tree damage in general.

In previous blogs and past posts I have shared how common it is for much of our known wildlife such as bears for example how notorious they are for playing and climbing and even uprooting some trees. Well once again I feel it’s necessary due to the current time of year and the winter storms that we’ve been enduring that I feel that is necessary to point this out yet again.

As you see above in the image you will see some examples of what the weight of ice and snow can cause. With freezing temperatures it will create a very brittle limb or tree and ice and snow adding the (Weight) – not only will the fibers of the tree stretch but when they become brittle from the freezing temperatures they also become very fragile and eventually will snap. And in some cases May stretch and bend. Many but not all trees will stay in a bent formation or position after all the ice and snow has melted away.

When we walk through the forest after all the snow and ice is melted away we come across over the notorious tree snaps brakes and general free damage, and it looks like the following image below.

I find that it is necessary and very important to rule out all possibilities or suspects that are known for creating such obvious damage.

Remember the process of elimination !


BIGFOOT IN MY BACK YARD (Virginia) 2/04/20

On One of Virginia’s residents property whom I have investigated in the past due to ongoing activity just may have caught bigfoot in the act.

Approximately around 9:30pm 2/04/20 as the individual had stepped out on her back balcony with her flash light She was dealing with some bird & squirrel seed and she may have captured an image of whats been lurking around her home.

Tracks have been found before on her property and neighbors have reported hearing odd unfamiliar sounds.

These images may be blurry and due to being at night and the quick snap from off a camera phone but in my honest opinion they show something with shaggy hair and long arms.

Almost in a knuckle walk position…Judge for yourself:

The yellow outline is what we believe the position/ direction the subject is heading.

Possibly another subject to the far left in the back.

But what do you think this is ?

Author of Learning Bigfoot

Daniel J. Benoit

Wildlife & Bigfoot Researcher and Virginia resident Investigator.
One who grew up in nature as a child playing and hunting with his father became quite familiar with Wildlife as the years went by the thought of Bigfoot wasn’t nothing He dwelt on or thought of but was heard of and was known to the back of his mind, but it was not till the seeing the Roger Patterson & Bob Gimlin footage analyzed and work on is when the curiosity struck and a great interest grew and is now a strong Desired passion for the love and research of Sasquatch.

Daniel Started off as an Independent Investigator as he was taken notice of the Rise of the squatch as he referred to it as The Subject was becoming more open and Widely known among the Public Society but yet it was not accepted.

He soon learned after he was involved in his own research that there was a much larger community that existed and dedicated to the study and discussion of bigfoot, This Community was found on Social Media , hidden from most non believers and skeptics to protect their identity and reputation against the mockery and ridicule of the close minded , the unaware, the ones lacking the real truth.

As an independent investigator Daniel soon began researching the theories that many had floating around the web. He went in with a very open mind believing that anything was possible especially with the unknown. His awareness was opened more abroad, his senses were alert and became more in touch with nature as he explored more in depth and began to pay special attention to the known wildlife itself. Behaviors , and patterns were studied more closely to how the wildlife lived. Observation of odd Structures became known , and the world around him became more open to him, only then did the Discoveries began to take place. Tracks of all the various wildlife were more noticed as he searched more diligently with great passion and they were found the big unknown humanoid bipedal tracks .Through out his early field work came many more findings of larger tracks in deep remote locations along the east coast. With his senses more keen and his mind more apt to the world around him the forest sounds were heightened to his sense of hearing, taken notice of all known species and then learning the various sounds of the unknown.

Daniel began Research out of the field in Studies comparing all known wildlife both foreign and domestic the more he searched he learned of one known species matched the sounds ,behaviors and other occurances that many others experienced as a similar equel but yet different. The Modern great Apes that the world today is aware of . These known Primates living among us today all have the same behaviors as what is observed today in America. The long unknown howls, The whoops, the Tree knocks , and the many other found structures of formations some appearing to be possible shelters are all equal to our known primates. Since Bigfoot is not acknowledged by science today there is no classification of what Sasquatch or Bigfoot is as to a specific Identifacation. Daniel is not and does not consider Our big hairy forest dwelling subject one of our known primates however he does compare the two, and In doing so he believes undoubtedly that Bigfoot is a form of Ape but all in of its own species but definitely not Human by any means.

His research has discovered many details meeting some known facts however it is all still speculation due to the lack of science not doing their part in the field.

This is the very reason the ECBRO has set in motion the Discovery Project and has gathered a sincere , honest , and dedicated team.

Let this little taste of information enlighten you to the knowledge and true dedication we truly have in this field of Cryptozoology.

Do know the ECBRO are not experts in any field but are always researching and studying to bring the truth to light.

The ECBRO seeks your support as well as patience as we continue in our Mission to provide logical , clear and real evidence as we have always done so. We believe in educating and bringing awareness to both the Bigfoot Community and the Closed minded lost world around us.

Mystery Animal floating the Web 2019

This very photo below has people baffled and they cant seem to grasp what it is well here I am to shed light on the matter since people are lazy and dont know how to look into this for themselves.

Some see this as an up side down cat face…. Ok whatever you want to believe !

Ok you see what Im referring to….. Now the first thought immediately was a bear and I believe I just may be correct.

See below other game cam photos of bears looking into the camera…

Ok still not convinced ?

Lets look at these with a more partial view.

Look again:

Yes all the above are bears.

Several Animals get up close and curious with cameras in the woods. It’s an foreign object.

Many animals see these cameras and even hear them.

I have one camera that had a deer less than 2 feet from it and then bolted off as soon as it clicked. It didn’t see it but definitely heard it.

Anyway people stop reading to much into these odd images on the web, they will not get you no where.



And if you think or feel otherwise who cares.

Move a long !


Over the years Bigfoot has been called several names but what species does he fall under ?

Speaking the thoughs in my mind:

First off I follow the bigfoot phenomenon pretty close and the little bit of science involved behind it. We have so much speculation regarding what Bigfoot even is.

Ive read and heard people say he’s this or that and that he’s not this or that…… This really digs deep under my skin, yes it urks me and it should bother you as well if you take this seriously.

Let me explain as simple as I can to you as I try my best to set the record straight.

We can believe or think what we darn well please about bigfoot and that is all ok and there is surely nothing wrong with that.

But what is not ok at all is to make statements as facts. You can not turn an unproven theory or a possibility into FACT. No sir , common sense should tell you this but for those who don’t I’ll try to break this down for you short and sweet.

As true Believers and all eyewitnesses who know first hand we know they (BIGFOOT) exist …… OK

But the world in general does not know that, they ridicule and mock the very thought of such a being even living among us.

People swear bigfoot has been proven to exists through past DNA studies……….Well Stop right there……..No that has never happened…… It was attempted and that’s all ill say about that for now, because if bigfoot was proven and recognized openly to the public then The world would know and it would even make world wide news networks…. THINK ABOUT IT and stop being deceived.

Now with that being said the point behind this short blog is there is NO FACTS ABOUT BIGFOOT besides being hairy and leaving foot prints behind.

Anyone who claims any information regarding bigfoot as being definite and or true is in error unless they can provide the concrete solid evidence and undeniable proof.

Anyone who shares information as FACT with out documented evidence or proof is either a story telling hoaxer or an attention seeking idiot, because one there is no experts in this field and two there is NO FACTS ABOUT BIGFOOT.

Only thing we know is what we physically observe and again its our observations and still does not prove anything.
