About M.K.Davis

M.K.Davis has been researching the Patterson Sasquatch film for the last 20 years. He has traveled extensively and has amassed one of the largest collection of images from the film. M.K. has trekked the Bluff Creek drainage of Northern California on many occasions and his observations have led to several important discoveries on the film itself. While the Patterson film is only a very short piece of film, it continues to yield vital data that may one day lead to a more complete understanding what it is that is on the film and what it means to all of us.

  1. I want to compliment you on your analysis work, Mr. Davis. It’s certainly intriguing. What I appreciate is that the work you are doing is not easy. It’s highly technical and tedious to accomplish. Not many could or would do this work yet it has, in my opinion, furthered the study of this creature in a meaningful way.

  2. Yes, a very good site and I guilty of relying on other sites for snippets of your work. i got burned out on all the conflicting and bad info on the web…..this is an upper for me!
    If you are able, please contact me I I can’t seem to find a “contact” button…(I don’t blame you if intentional!). I would like to give you a video I took a few years back. I can’t think of a better person to give it to. The resolution is not great, but there are a few details you might find interesting.

  3. Great to see a dedicated site – always been impressed by your work. Hope to see more!

    M.K. – any chance you can point me to more info on Patty’s thigh issues?? It always look like a flap to me —

    thanks, love the mouth animation – first time I have seen that.


  4. Dear M.K.—

    I truly appreciate your work, and all the effort you have put into the enhancement of the film. I do have a question for you though, and hope you will take me seriously. I recently went to a site called “Bigfoot Encounters” which contains an enhancement on the facial profile of the creature.

    It is a set of rapidly advancing frames which move forward, stop, and then retract in order. The very last frame flashes twice (a second time as the sequence retracts). In this frame appears an anomaly I hope you may be able to investigate more fully. Please look intently just a bit to the right of what would be the left cheek area of the creature (right side of film). Your eyes need to become accustomed to the flashing of the photos, so it may take a little time before you can zero in on the area clearly. But as your eyes begin to adjust to the rhythm of the flashes, you can see much more clearly.

    In this last frame (which again flashes twice), in the left cheek area, appears a frame which appears to show the nose, unsmiling lips, and chin of a man. I am not sure if it is part of a “mask”, or in the background of the shot, or maybe even an area of film that was overlapped with another piece of film, thus showing a small part of another film.

    Proponents of the film have immediately written me off saying there is nothing there. However, people that I have shown who couldn’t care one way or the other say there is “something” there that looks very much like the partial profile of a man’s face. I would very much appreciate it, since it is your own enhancement, if you could take a close look at that frame, as I am sure you have access to it. If possible, could you e-mail me a copy of just that frame of film? I would really like to know what this object is in the film. Again, one must look intently in the area (left cheek) to see it as it is much smaller than the huge creature’s head.

    Thanks, Joe

  5. M.K.–
    I’m sorry for three posts in succession, but I looked at the succession of frames, and I may be mistaken about the frame being the last one (they flash so quickly it is hard to tell)–it may be the second frame in the sequence (the frame is definitely shown twice in the sequence though).

    Thanks again, Joe

  6. M.K.—
    I wish I knew how to go back and correct my earlier post, without having to post again. I just want to make sure you know which frame of film I am talking about. There appears to be a slightly larger frame in the far background–the sequence starts there–the first frame thereafter (you could call it second frame in the series) is the one with the profile. It appears to flash twice, but the frames are moving so rapidly that it is hard to tell. In the left cheek area of that frame is the object of which I am speaking. Again, my apologies for (4) posts, but I just wanted to be clear on what I am speaking of. Would it be possible for you to post that frame–or all of those frames separately? I’m not sure if you have the rights to e-mail to me or not. I am extremely interested in this. Thanks.

  7. MK–
    Just in case you didn’t get my e-mail. Thank you so much for the sequence. It is photo (2) and
    (12) in the sequence. The head is starting to turn, and there appears to be the profile of a nose, unsmiling lips and chin actually in the fur itself. Is it an optical illusion, or could it be a man’s face? I disagree with those who say NOTHING is there—because there is. I just don’t know what it is. Thanks again. Perhaps you can comment when you get a chance.


    • I stuck the gif in Quicktime and went frame by frame with it. I think what yiou are seeing is simply the highlights on that side of the face, which seem to show a white profile of a man’s face. Clicking through, back and forth with the first and second frame, you can see that highlight shift as the head turns. It appears to be nothing more than a highlight (and low lights in the cheek and jaw depression) which takes on a certain familiar shape, like a face in a cloud, for example. I personally don’t think it is exposing anything unusual or suspicious. Just my 2 cents. 🙂

  8. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you’ve offered to your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very quick for newbies. May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

  9. Your videos are extraordinary, however it would be to your advantage to maybe have some sort of triggering device where the hotspots are, particularly at night…. Possibly triggering spotlights or the like. Maybe even different cameras.

  10. Hello M.K.,

    What are your thoughts on the theory regarding two Sasquatch creatures in the raw footage of the Patterson-Gimlan film? There’s a link to a youtube video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CqRfH3CX3w , that someone put together showing what they believe is a second sasquatch that retreats in an entirely different direction to the left of Patty’s position in the film. I must say, it’s very compelling. You can clearly see that the first figure in the frame is walking towards a drastically different tree line than Patty is. I was wondering if you have ever done any investigation into these early frames of the film to see whether or not there is in fact a second creature or if it’s just some kind of uncanny blob-squatch artifacts on the film negative. If you have already discussed this or have addressed your opinion, I’ve managed to missed it.

    I’d love to know you’re thoughts. If it is in fact true that there are multiple creatures on film, we have ourselves some more leverage in the debate about the authenticity of the PG footage.


  11. MK I would like to talk with you about the the clips with have been releasing this last year from Texas. Most of the clips were from my cameras at that site. I’m glad you have released them but some basic information you are missing. Please contact me.

  12. lets assume for a moment bob h. was big foot in the pgf …and lets assume mk davis is correct about the second bigfoot in the film . If this is correct than the second bigfoot is a man in a suit…if this is correct than Bob h. would know about the second man in a suit. Then why hasn’t Bob h. ever mentioned it?

  13. Marlon … not tryin’ to get personal, but are you from Louisiana? Just pickin’ up on a bit of Northeast Louisiana drawl. Saw the “Honey Island” segment on the “Bigfoot is Real” DVD for the first time this weekend. I like the way y’all approached explainin’ that, without bein’ too harsh. I had always thought the “casts” those folks was toutin’ was gator tracks … not imprints from some prosthetic-abomination attached to a shoe! Appreciate your posts … keep ’em comin’, bud!

  14. MK. Davis has supplied the bigfoot community with brilliant work and enlightened us all. Thru exhaustive research and effort we are in debt to his contributions toward clarity. Thanks MK for your time and appreciate the information provided during our conversation, Looking forward to corresponding with you regarding those future expeditions I spoke of scheduled for next fall. I hope all is well and your health is improving ( All the Best ).
    Sincerely, Matthew J. Ellis

  15. MK, you’re the man.
    you are being ‘discovered’ all the time.
    for many months our blog has been discovering
    your good and fascinating work.
    truly breakthrough findings.
    would you ever consider participating as a guest of our
    ‘bigfoot vocalizations 2’ confab?
    we’d be honored and have lots of questions
    that only you seem to have answers to.
    if you have a few, take a peek and see if you
    think we’re worth ‘your time.’

  16. MK,
    One of our friends came across this retelling of that old
    1924 “Apemen Attack” on a group of miners in Washington State.
    It’s a first-hand account transcribed by the miner’s son. (1967)
    If you can let your computer read it to you (text to speech)
    it’s way more accessible.
    This story is fascinating, as if the miner’s take on what
    the apemen were (are), their state-of-being.

    When you have a few, on a rainy day, see what you think.



  17. Hi M.K.,
    I’d like to discuss the work you did on the Nix film back in December.
    It’s a very interesting observation you made there and I really like to know more.
    Could you be so kind to contact me?
    Best wishes,

  18. Hi M.K.

    We would like to talk to you about appearing in an upcoming Bigfoot documentary. We are a renowned film studio that produces many reality documentaries on interesting subjects. The Bigfoot enigma is important to us so we are continually searching for new evidence and information to share with fellow Bigfoot enthusiasts. We’ve seen some of your research on youtube and appreciate it very much. Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks much,

  19. MK,
    You’ve mentioned that ‘bigfoot’ and ‘sasquatch are different,
    but I’m not sure what the difference is. Could you clarify?
    Here’s a video that discusses (amongst other topics) the theory that neanderthal may
    have bred with humans to create a new species. Could that new species be bigfoot?

    If you have the time, could you do a video discussion on this topic?
    Thank you. Jimmer

    • petre,
      I contacted the AF admin and I was told they were having server problems. No date when the April show will be correctly posted, but at least they are aware of the problem. Let’s see when the show, shows up.

  20. M.K. I always look forward to your analysis and insight to bigfoot videos. Keep up the great work!! Jim from Rhode Island

  21. Hello Mr. Davis. I’ve been watching your YouTube videos and really really appreciate the level of expertise and thoughtful balanced analysis! Please keep up the excellent work and I look forward to seeing more of your Bigfoot stuff.

  22. Mr Davis, growing up in the ’60s, like many baby boomers, I was treated to incredible wildlife images of Ivan Marx a few times a year on “The Wonderful World of Disney.” An proven nature cinematographer and tracker, who employed credible wildlife tracking techniques to capture images of his quarry, I believe, self-proclaimed Bigfoot “expert” Matt MoneyMaker (who couldn’t find his &%$ in a bathroom, let alone a Bigfoot in a forest) has in his own self interest, smeared Marx’s name, while aligning himself, for obvious reasons, with an admitted thief of religious relics and smuggler; Peter Bryne. All because of the disbelief in the conical head shape; a shape now being proven to exist in nature as demonstrated by the recent interest in “nephilim” skulls from Peru (skulls first shown to the world 40 yrs. ago by Eric VanDaniken). MM has led his often understudied followers in the disregard of such a cranial structure, as well as demonstrating his personal disregard for Native American wisdom. Despite the fact that Native peoples will tell you there are several body types of “sasquatch”, his cast of “experts” on FB clings to this premise. In fact on his trip to NEpal, in search of the Yeti, i believe he went as far as to question a sherpa’s eyewitness account of such a cranial structure, going as far as to suggest (and I am paraphrasing) it was simply a hairdo to shed the rain! In fact many reports of such skulls have been reported and can be seen in videos, despite the beliefs of MM followers who on this incorrect belief have branded Ivan Marx a hoaxer; well that and his audacity to claim he actually capture the creature on film using such “laughable” techniques as scent masking, blinds, the pursuit of spawns, and even the foolish idea of interviewing Native peoples or following their advice. Yes I too find some of his images questionable, but his first work, I do not. Growing up in the 60s I know the i unlikelihood of a full body suit being worn by his wife. But more importantly, I have, like yourself, personally examined some of those images; only to find what may be pathology or injury, even what may be a genetic anomaly, or possibly a captured creature being held in one of the image’s hand. I read that you examined the film or at least images from it, but can not find that analysis. Perhaps due to “hate mail” you removed it; as sadly, there seems little tolerance for discussion of the film among Bigfoot “experts;” especially those who simply regurgitate the opinions of others or scream CGI! or FAKE! at every chance; not appreciating the incredible amount of work or money, pulling off a hoax such as the PG film or an Ivan Marx creature would involve. Recent images from Pennsylvania and NY seem to show the exact same thinner type creature with a thinner build, and wild longer head hair, while the roadside (shoe-wearing) Penn creature with the incredibly arched back, matches perfectly the arched backs of the young Sasquatch doing a headstand under the tree! Yet I read… IT’s WEARING SHOES! or RIDICULOUS! posted under the images. Where do they sell all these different Bigfoot suits? The cost of implanting the hundreds of thousands of hairs must be astronomical! Yet so many seem to be able to afford them? To me, the creekside Marx creature or even the injured limping creature, also wearing elaborate suits, warrant further examination (if only for his wife’s sake) before such hasty judgement can be passed, Although, as I said, the later images are harder to believe, the world is now seeing what I have known for decades, there is precedent for such “laughable” images! I wondered if you had examined these images and what your take on them might be? If you do not want to post it here, I certainly understand. Thank You, Brett Allen Paranormal Researcher @ 40 yrs. Cover UFO Magazine 2007.

  23. One more thing…
    I wonder if you realize the implications of the light flashes you, as well as many other electro-magnetic abilities reported by so many witnesses, effects also seen among paranormal researchers: shocks, electromagnetic malfunctions or yes even the ability to appear or disappear, all carry great weight as Biblical Nephilim… are part spirit!

  24. Always enjoy your work MK. Although I do disagree on Marx(to me his stuff is laughable)but find 99 percent of your work totally fascinating. I appreciate the time and effort you have put into this mystery that intrigues us all. I would love to have enough free time to do some of the things I would like to try as far as research goes and am very glad that you have the time to peruse the films that make us all wonder. Please keep up the good work my friend.

  25. M K, you have a sincere and beleivable approach to this Bigfoot phenomena which makes
    you one of the more credible invstigators out there. Good work! Having a law enforcement
    background, I would like to see someone ( you perhaps ) set up a SECOND game cam aimed at the first ( and most obvious one ) so as to see what happens to cam#1. All we ever
    see are unexplainable goings on recorded by one cam. Why not set up a second (more
    comcealed) cam to reveal what all the mysterious pics we always see presented and are
    left to speculate as to what was recorded. I have never seen or heard of this being done.
    Unless it has and just has NOT been shown to the public to keep the mystery alive ( and
    profitable?). Why don’t you be the first and then put what you discover out there for all to
    see? This idea will eventually occur to someone, why don’t you do it first?
    Again, I appreciate your effort to get at the truth. Good Hunting. TH

  26. Hello, I am a soundscape artist and I am working on an aural piece about bigfoot, Would you allow me to project your stabilized video image as part of the sound and light show to accompany my aural work. This would be a private performance in a private studio and not put online. I would give credit the night I performed it.

  27. Absolutely, you can use anything I have! Thanks for asking. Here is a video I did, and I have a better face pic!!

  28. Hi Mk. Love your frame 61 and all work. I had an issue with Patty in the right buttocks hip area where as she turns their seems to be an area where the butt stays down and the leg moves independent of the overhang butt area. However I believe that since Patty is a female, that this is an issue of bone muscle and female hip socket and angle leg placement that creates such an illusion after frame 352 as she looks forward..for years this was the only issue I had with authenticity but now thinking that this is a female anatomy structural detail. im more convinced it is not a fur suit

  29. Hey MK LOVE your work and TY TY TY for ALL you do for bigfoot!!!! Have you seen any of Robert Dodsons vids??? Specially the “bigfoot is pissed” or ” bigfoot could be one”???? They are AMAZING!!!!!! And with your techie skills i think you could make an AWESOME discovery!!!!!! Thnks again!!!!!!

  30. I am more hooked on MK’s analyzes ,then I am on the PG film!! Thanks for all your hours and hours of work. My son an I enjoy every minute. You give us a chance to have our own opinions, supplied with the best possible evidence . To steal a quote from fox molder, The truth is out there! Vinny Daleo

  31. Sir, outstanding work in this field. Thank you for all of your time you have put into this for all the world to see. As someone who lives in the Chilliwack BC area I’m hoping to get some footage and rest assured if I do, it will be forwarded to you asap. I was wondering if you have ever turned your talents to other topics? I bet you could do some serious work on much of the Apollo footage that contain annomilies. Thanks again

  32. Mr Davis I have watched over and over your films ref the RP/PG film and find your investigation to bare fruit.. I at times wish that all of your films were connected and numbered as it is hard to watch them in order via You tube. I know much of what you say can draw the ire of people set in there ways however I for one question everything and feel it’s the only way to do a proper investigation. I have questions ref your opinion… Not proof but opinion. To me this seems as there may have been the killing of one or more of Pattys bloodline. Ie the tracking dog scene, the pitch forward of Patty herself, the use of the backhoe and the flash at the end of the film that seems to provoke the movement of an other such creature… After looking into Pattys eye and seeing the sad humanity there I wonder if this was a cover up by the parties involved.. Love to here your take on this.
    Rod Davis

  33. Hello Mr Davis
    I am just one who has become fascinated with this subject and am looking for answers also. I wanted to ask you a question. It is my belief that this creature manipulates light making it not easily seen or photographed. I also feel an answer may be found in the use of special photographic filters. Everyone seems to use an infrared digital format now, which the creature is either able to see or the camera can’t pick up, or does pick up but needs some sort of filter. Do you think if one were to go back to old school photography, with the use of strobe lights and an auto shutter speed device make a difference? I forgot what you called the device but it could take a whole roll of film with one touch. I realize this would require quite a bit of creative thought, but if the creature can’t see it? You know sometimes less in this case could put one on a more even footing. If it didn’t see the camera perhaps its defenses would be lower. I know this may be a one time shot. Do you feel the change in cameras make a difference?

    I admire your work on this subject and on the John F Kennedy assassination. You speak in a very straight forward manner, with an acute eye for detail. I feel you have been able to break down just what is seen into details that are hard to refute. I’m not some nut, but this creature is real and frightening. I feel that it’s living much closer to people, even in larger cities than we think. I believe that it’s population is growing and is much bigger than we can imagine. Thank-you Sir, for your time and trouble.

  34. I was recently forced to retire from a school district for being diagnosed Narcolepsy. My work was performance was never an issue. The funny thing, My former superior was an Indian from India and my blood line qualifies me an Native American. Go figure. Any way I have been watching 4 months for Bigfoot videos and I only heard for a handle full of events that involved Bigfoot and UFOs. One story was from the Native Americans saying how 2 Bigfoot came from a UFO. I was thing, here’s my partial conclusion:
    1. The Bigfoot population seems to be growing or Human population is encroaching on their habit which means more sightings and interactions but the seems to be plenty of wilderness left.If these Creators are that intelligent, wouldn’t they just keep migrating further back in the wilderness?
    2. All the stories I read, I believe these intelligent, fast,muscular,and possible stealth are perfect killing machines.
    3. If UFOs had a part in releasing them into world all those years ago to let them, they had a plan for them….what better way to already have an ARMY what here on earth. Look around all the bad things going on. We have fail as a species who deserves this planet.

    Does anyone think I have to much time on my hands.???

  35. I would like to contact mr Davis. But I don’t know how. I have always been interested in bigfoot. But no one to talk too

  36. Dear M.K. Davis:

    I know that I have written to you before, but not here, so I hope you receive this note. . . Tonight I watched your ABS photo analysis and found it truly solid. Yes, it is possible to hoax such a marvelously detailed photograph of an animal’s back, but I believe your analysis works quite sensibly to suggest that the animal in the photo is an actual being, not a costumed man. . . As a master editor legal texts and a writer who has worked many hours in post production alongside nominees and one recipient of an Academy Award for special effects in Los Angeles, I am a very critical viewer and a person addicted to close study.

    Your video analysis of the ABS photo makes a deep sort of sense to me. I think one possible cause of wetness on the animal’s back could have been a wet tree branch cutting into it. I have been injured similarly while climbing and tramping through heavy woods. . . Your reticence to interpret what evidence is there truly impresses me. You are tough-minded. . . Do you know where the ABS photo came from?

    Thanks for your efforts. I really enjoy your video posts on Youtube.

  37. Hey MK I haven’t talked to you in awhile but but once again you’ve got my attention with your latest on what really happened at Bluff Creek. At first I was confused but now it’s beginning to make sense. What an intriguing subject. With Mr Gimlin continuing to stress the point that he didn’t point his rifle seemed out of context unless he was feeling guilty. After all he didn’t talk about for years.

  38. I have watched a bunch of your YouTube postings and I am intrigued.

    The video where you discuss anomalies in the Patterson film, specifically the flash on two frames. I see a human stepping out from behind the tree. With a hat on.

    It would make sense. The muzzle flash and the events you talk about that day.

  39. hey m.k. can you send me your email address? i found a awesome native American Artifact, wanted to send you some pics of it to see if you’d ever seen anything like it before, my local state archaeologist has no clue as to what it is.thanks Todd Porter. p.s. lost my Facebook account or i would have pm you.
