Questioning the M.K. Narrative: Bluff Creek Bigfoot
M.K. Davis has created quite a stir with his latest video and his claim that he unknowingly recorded a Bigfoot at Bluff Creek. M.K. has gone so far as to post two enhanced videos of the subject and one video explaining how he came to record the video in question.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I question all evidence and I never take any evidence at face value. It's in my nature to break it down in every aspect. If there is a crumb trail, I will follow it. Well, I found a few crumbs.
I can tend to be long winded and this might be one of those times because I think it's important to be thorough.
For those who have not seen the alleged Bigfoot video, here it is, as posted by M.K. Davis. All copyrights belong to the copyright holder. Videos and screen shots are used for educational purposes, commentary and criticism purposes only.
I won't post the enhanced videos but I would like you to watch this video where M.K. Davis explains the events that led up to his alleged Bigfoot video.
M.K. drags this video out a bit by covering two months worth of trips to Bluff Creek. He is including a lot of other information in order to give his Bigfoot video some legitimacy, in my opinion. He seems to be going through an awful lot of effort to show what he thinks is Bigfoot activity. The fact is, there is no evidence of that. Broken trees happen for a variety of reasons.
When I go to the woods I come across broken trees all the time. I even come up to groups of broken trees and here is a shot I took a few months ago to prove it.
There are about five or six trees in the foreground that are all broken at about the same height. So what you might say. Exactly, says I. I think M.K. is just trying too hard to convince us that was a Bigfoot.
In the above narrated video (this seems to be a new theme) explaining what happened, Mr. Davis goes on to say they found a lair but in the original video, there is no mention of any such thing. There is a lengthy shot of water trickling from a hillside and then the video cuts away to show Don talking about a deer skull. Likewise, there was no mention of any prints in the original video.
Have a look for yourself. I believe this video was recorded in October of 2008. It's what M.K. says at one point in the video.
This video turned out to be a gem. When I was watching the narrated video and it got to the part with the culverts, I knew I had seen it before. I went to M.K.'s channel and dug until I found the exact video I had seen a couple of years earlier. I used to be quite the M.K. Davis fan but not so much now, sad to say.
I watched the video hoping to find anything in it that would be helpful to this new claim of a recorded yet unseen-by-his-own-eyes Bigfoot. I have recorded hundreds of hours of videos and not once did something this close go unnoticed by me. The human eye is wonderful for detecting movements and shifts in colours, among other fantastic things. I simply can not buy the notion that M.K. was standing in a creek, recording in front of himself and he didn't notice this being to his right.
M.K. is in a shaded area with no sunlight in his eyes. I find the odds of him not seeing the thing to be astronomically beyond belief.
Davis then goes on to say that he walked by the beast and never saw it. He surmises that the critter pulled a branch down in order to conceal itself from the human. I am to believe that M.K. sloshed down the creek and this massive beast just sat there and didn't move. Perhaps it lost its fight or flight instincts, who knows for sure. All I can say is that I have never seen a large forest animal just stand there when a human gets that close to it. The animal will charge or it will flee but that's my experiences.
Another thing I would like to know is why M.K. cut his video in half. It kind of ruins the context of the situation. The ten or fifteen second video is actually closer to thirty seconds. Don't believe me?
See for yourself.
Once again, am I supposed to believe that M.K. was within yards of a Bigfoot that was apparently washing up with a cloth and this creature was completely unaware of M.K's presence for thirty seconds or longer? Am I supposed to believe that Mr. Davis didn't see the creature either?
What is easier for me to believe is that M.K. recorded his friend at the edge of the creek washing his hands and getting ready to head back to the truck. It also seems to be the most likely explanation.
Seven years is a long time to try to recall events that happened, especially when one doesn't know that they experienced an event in the first place.
Lastly, why didn't M.K. answer two people on his channel that asked who the figure was? There were only four comments below the video so it's not like he couldn't see it. Does M.K. not read his comments? I know I read all of the comments I receive. I may not answer all of them but I do read them. You Tube notifies the channel owner via email and/or Google+.
If you would like to check for yourself, here is a link to the video and the comments: Bluff Creek 2008
I admit that I am not the best at enhancing videos but I made only one adjustment to the video in hopes of exposing any details not seen in the original.
Full video at normal speed:
First half of the video slowed down and zoomed:
I see what appears to be a human in a reddish coloured shirt who could possibly be wearing a backpack. The resolution is poor but I very much doubt that this is a Bigfoot.
Why dredge up a thirty second video from seven years ago when the originally posted two year old video only had 1,945 views?
