Bigfoot research, how to, participate, learn

Many people are interested or curious about bigfoot. More and more tv shows, documentaries and You Tube videos are devoted to the subject. I first became interested in bigfoot at age 12 after seeing the movie “The Abominable Snowman”, hearing reports from explorers like Sir Edmund Hilary and especially after watching the movie, “The Legend of Boggy Creek” about the Fouke Monster, that was based on a real incident. Even though I was busy raising a family, working and consumed with everyday survival, my interest never waned. The advent of the internet and increasing availability of reports from sources all over the world made researching a lot easier. Of course, at the same time, it has added a lot of cr@# to wade through.

If you are interested in learning more about bigfoot, here are some suggestions:

  • Of course start with the internet and read accounts from different sources. Always look for common sense signs of credibility.
  • Watch documentaries on tv.
  • There are good books out there and my suggestion for the first one is by Dr. Jeff Meldrum of the University of Idaho, “Sasquatch, Legend Meets Science.”
  • Attend a presentation. Don Keating of EOBIC holds them regularly. You can find out more at his site: http://eobic.com
  • Listen on radio or the computer to interviews of experts like Dr. Jeff Meldrum or Don Keating. Here are a few:http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6469070

  • A high percentage of bigfoot sightings or encounters have occurred in forests, national parks, state parks, swamps and on rivers by hunters, fishermen, hikers, campers and work crews. This makes perfect sense. It is when we go into their habitat that they are often seen. People rarely have cameras with them and are caught off guard. So, the next time you are in a natural setting, take a camera. If you are able, keep some plaster of paris with you to make a casting of footprints.
  • Here is the easy one. Strike up a conversation, in person or on the internet. It really is a small world. Years ago I was just north of Mount St Helens in WA state. I stopped at a small store. I struck up a conversation with a local man who had a neighbor that had a bigfoot encounter. Many people have had some experience.
  • Lastly, if you ever have an encounter, use common sense and be careful. I believe the creatures exist. They are large and powerful.
  • Signs to watch and listen for. Teepee like formations of limbs. Branches broken at a higher level than humans would. Banging on trees. Vocalizations resembling some primates. Rocks being thrown (some large) on land and in water. And of course footprints. If you come across large footprints, measure, photograph and cast if possible.
