Chuck respected the power and the intelligence of Big Foot, but saw and found no danger in the creatures he encountered and hoped to leave that image for the world.Chuck died in 2008 after enjoying 30+ years of interaction with these creatures, gathering foot print molds and fingerprints as well as other evidence.

With pictures and stories the Bords present cases of encounters with Bigfoot. The Bigfoot story has moved from certainty of the creatures existence to claims of hoaxes, trickery, and outright lies and back again. Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin claim to have taken movies of Bigfoot; Ray Wallace s family shows wooden feet that they claim were used to start the whole Bigfoot story in 1958. Who do we believe?The Bords answer is nobody and everybody. The cases are presented without prejudice so you can make up your own mind. Sometimes it s easy, as with the Ray Wallace claims there are plenty of sightings before Ray Wallace was alive to make it clear he didn t start the whole thing. Other cases are a mystery. And that s all part of the fun.

Bigfoot In the New Jersey 'Burbs (Black & White): Where to Find Bigfoot in Our Great, Not Completely Paved Over Yet, State
Anyway, one of my friends, about two years older than I, absolutely REFUSED to go in the woods there. We'd romp around the pines everywhere and anywhere else, but he just wouldn't go in that part of the forest. This is even when we were older teens. See, he claimed that years prior he has seen ... something in those woods. A big, hairy man, face covered in hair, standing slouched in the woods staring at him. Near Lakehurst, New Jersey 1980s. Bigfoot shows up in some unexpected places. There are thousands of reports of encounters of Bigfoot type creatures in North America and the state of New Jersey has its share, with over 200 encounters reported in modern times. The Kittatinny Mountains and the Pine Barrens are two of the places in New Jersey where this unknown hominid has revealed itself most frequently, but sightings have also occurred in areas where one would least expect. Marlboro, Middletown, and Mahwah, are just three of the typically suburban New Jersey towns that have had more than one sighting in the relatively recent past. The Big Red Eye, the Big Hairy Man, the Bag Man and the Jersey Devil are some of the commonly used names of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch type creatures that have been seen or heard in the woods, swamps and occasional backyards of the Garden State. Whatever name it goes by, reports in New Jersey of encounters with wild hairy men date back to the 19th century and have continued into the present. Reports alone do not prove the Big Red Eye is lurking in the swamps of Mahlon Dickerson Reservation in Morris County, or that the hairy, bi-pedal version of the Jersey Devil, is watching you change your tire, on a moonless night, from just inside the tree-line along Route 72. Something strange is creeping through the forests though, so on your next hike through Allaire State Park, when the birds stop chirping, the bugs stop buzzing, the hair on your arms stands-up, and you feel like you are being watched, consider the experiences of others in that area that are described in the book, and head straight back to the car, then bar. Bigfoot in the New Jersey Burb?s compiles the more modern sightings and encounters with Bigfoot like entities in the state and offers guidance for where these creatures can be found. We have broken the encounters into four broad sections, and examine historical and modern accounts in (1) North Jersey, (2) South Jersey, (3) Out of the Way Places and (4) a section we call The Turnpike. In each of the four major sections, we narrow down concentrations of sightings and encounters to General Areas of Interest, and then finally Hot Spots. Bigfoot in the New Jersey 'Burbs provides seasoned Bigfoot researchers, amateur Squatch enthusiasts and curious Jersey residents who think nothing fun ever happens in the state, with details of recent sightings and the reasons why these unknown two legged primates tend to be seen in specific areas. The book contains twenty-two maps, recent rarely seen track photos; real accounts of Bigfoot sightings, advice and techniques that will help the reader maximize their chances of running into a Bigfoot in our great but not completely paved over yet state.
