Wood Knocks

As it's late and I can't sleep I've been putting a DVD together and noted my wood knock clip, amongst my few piss take clips as well when I was deep in the forests taking the piss out of BF researchersl. Yeah MH is in there :biggrin

I was at a T-Junction having a break and kept hearing wood knocking off the trees, so walked across and stood there for a while and finally found out what it was. An old dead fall (oh about 9-10 inches and about 30 ft tall) was blown down (or up rooted) and leaning against this other tree and as the wind blew, it send it back a bit and as it fell back you got the typical wood on wood knocking.

I'll admit, it was pretty weird until I figured out what it was.....hearing that knock knock....I'm happy to pass the clip on to some people to upload, but it ain't going public on my channel with the loonies in this field.

Heres another thought, I'm thinking of doing a solo over winter for a week when I have a break so was looking into some clips and caught this.

We all know how sound travels at night, has anybody considered wood knocks could be also hikers splitting logs?

Goto the 09:50 mark (cool video regardless and that torch he uses at night is just awesome 13:20 mark) I love his fire starting technique, the same as mine! screw bushcraft and use a hexi block, he should of used more tinder however and built it up more before lighting the hexi.

K, some knocks could, I'm sure ARE human activity. In areas of higher human habitation in particular. However...not all are, at least, we have many that are bundled with(in a sense), other vocals in displays(similar to apes and chimps and even humans throwing a tantrum). But the point you make is very valid in that there is a need of course to try and strain out human or other natural sounds. It's just that some times, they are obvious about it..;)

I saw somebody do something like this in a documentary on Bigfoot. They hit an oak tree in the woods with a specially crafted stick...and they heard a returning boom some miles off. That was pretty interesting, I'll say. Have you had any success with your knockings, keilder?

Could you be more specific on what you mean by knockings, as I'm thinking about Julie at present?

Eh, sorry, I meant with the knockings you were saying you did. Have you ever had any return "calls" from other "wood knockers (or basically, Sasquatches)"?

I knew what you meant man I was just playing. I can honestly say I have never in my life ever Wood Knocked. I have however tried calling once, without much success.

re the video at post #18 in the below thread, I think its in that.

Now that you're wondering why someone with this interest has never tried wood knocking, the answer is that Kielder lives in the U.K., where even he believes there are no large, undiscovered primates lurking in the moors. ;)

So true, they all frequent the local taverns down by the river and the best game I ever seen them play was who had the widest neck - That's actually true. :D

Sure, you have to appreciate we do at times take this serious, but this place is more of a way to blow off steam and have fun.

Bigfooters who like to laugh and have fun, I know, it's unprecedented, and I used my spell checker for that word. ;)
