Tag Archive: Finding Bigfoot


Hey gang, good times, good times!  In a super positive mood this week as a lot of things coming to fruition.

First, the move is on to a new Squatch-D HQ in March. The new facility should be the best biggest yet. So there may be a little quiet streak coming up the last week of February, first week of March.


Road trip anyone???

In March of course, there is the Cabela’s Rare, Strange & Unusual Sightings, at the Cabela’s in Tridelphia, West Virginia.

A totally free event, with Eric Altman, Billy Willard, Dave Dragosin, Doug Waller, Stan Gordon, myself and featuring Dr. Jeff Meldrum.

(Left) Myself, Eric Altman and Billy Willard at the Steve “Indy” Pickett Memorial Barbeque, Salt Fork State Park, Ohio and (Right) Dave Dragosin and myself at the East Cast UFO/Bigfoot Conference, West Moreland, Pennsylvania.

There will be a meet and greet panel on Friday March 14th, and the speaker series on the 15th and 16th. Admission is $0.00, FREE, GRATIS, etc.

Okay time for my shameless plug…will have copies of What Would Sasquatch Do”  available for purchase and of course anyone who has purchased one in the past bring it, and I will make sure it gets signed.

I know there will be some other vendor tables as well and it’d be a great time to get any of Stan Gordon’s books you may have signed and see if he’s got some new ones. Of course Dr. Meldrum will perhaps have his awesome, Sasquatch: When Legend Meets Science there as well.


Series Finales???

Rumors are abound that filming just wrapped for the series finale of Finding Bigfoot, which will air next year,I believe.

The rumor started when a local newspaper where they were doing what may be the final filming (Humboldt County), in a  Walla Walla, Washington paper ( I always love how that town sounds, kind of makes me wonder if the have a Walla Walla Wal-Mart in town).

Question is, did the newspaper misquote and say series finale instead of season finale. Shows are usually hush hush about whom announces the series finale. Sources around the web are leaning to, that’s it.

I will just sit and wait. Nonetheless I am a bit melancholy to see the program go. 

I know, I know, its just entertainment my colleagues say. I agree. But I am a “Squatcher,” and I like to be entertained. The show also opened the door, not only for the shenanigans by some on the down side, but on the good side, did make people a little bit more tolerable to the possibility of their being a Sasquatch.

Not to mention inspiring a future generation of kids, who seem to love Bobo, to keep an open mind and perhaps one day get in the field themselves, much the way The Legend of Boggy Creek was to me and countless others in the 70’s.

Some of the inspirations that created generations of researchers and enthusiasts

Of course media and TV programming is the latter part of the twentieth century’s inspirations but prior to that we had countless books by the likes of John Green, Ivan T. Sanderson, John Keel, Dr. John Napier in the past which set the tone for new researchers.

Finding Bigfoot, having well survived its first season, like it or not, has made its mark in history and developing a new generation of researcher yet to come. Not bad. 

A curious note was that the news media was always neutral on the matter until we saw a drop off for about a decade in the late 80’s. Then they turned on us believers with bias. It would seem without adequate reminders that this mystery exists, the news forgotten most objectivity in the matter and now consider it a side show attraction.


BBBtheend

Just my observations, but still no word on Bigfoot Bounty’s renewal, but considering the time it took to cast the previous time, and having my ear firmly to the ground, it doesn’t appear that Bigfoot Bounty will be coming back. There’s just been no real big buzz about it like the time Finding Bigfoot went “wheels up.” Spike did not appear to enthusiastic about the Bigfoot Bounty the way Animal Planet was about Finding Bigfoot.


Speaking of side show attractions…

Dummy Boy has hit the road, and is trying to find a venue in Phoenix  while he lays low near Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Last week we showed you a post where Dummy Boy was selling his little trailer, stating he bought one appropriate for carnivals and fairs, and side shows for that matter. Well this picture turned up from somewhere, showing Dyer did indeed obtain a new, bigger trailer and is not eating the most nutritious food.

Dyer Watch 2014.

We all know about the venue he has at the end of the month in Houston, and people from reports have been deluging the venue to pull out of the deal. However, here at Squatchdetective.com, we will be having our sources doing their thing at the venue.

Sources state that Dyer’s tour may end in San Antonio near the end of May.


This week on Squatchdetective Radio

Radio2  This week we’re bring back Don Boucher, to NOT talk about dummy boy, but rather about Bigfoot research and Bigfoot in Montana. Join us 8PM EST on Squatchdetective Radio.

Welcome to the Club Cliff!

According to the Bigfoot Evidence Blog, Cliff Barackman from Finding Bigfoot has been having an email flap over a crew member getting in the shot. People seem to think it’s a Bigfoot quite frequently emailing him about it.

 

FBSnip

Snip in which people think there’s a Bigfoot strolling in the background.

Cliff  had this to say on his blog on his website at:

http://cliffbarackman.com/faqs/theres-something-behind-you-or-another-cast-member-in-a-finding-bigfoot-episode/

 

“That’s a lot of people out there making the episodes happen.  With that many folks around, it’s almost inevitable that every once in a while one of them accidentally gets caught on camera in the wrong place at the wrong time.  It doesn’t help that when there is an interview of a cast member being filmed (when one of us looks towards the camera and they edit in snippets of what we say along with the action), there is usually another cast member being interviewed not far away.  The crew members are often running tapes, batteries, water, and other things to various locations, and sometimes wander into frame while the camera is rolling…

…So, if you catch a glimpse of an upright figure in the woods behind one of us in the woods during an episode of Finding Bigfoot, good for you.  You clearly have a great eye.  However, it is almost positively another member of the extended Finding Bigfoot family. “

Like wise I have been receiving emails since 2008, even seen a YouTube Video of the clip analyzing my final interview in MonsterQuest on the History Channel.

I just received a couple this past weekend as the episode aired again on one of the History Channel’s this weekend.

The figure on my clip walking from right to left.

In these circumstances, the “talent” as they call us, or the crew, are best suited to answer the questions of validity. In this case my shot was filmed in front of  a trail leading to our base camp. The clip, in actuality, was filmed before the expedition. It was day one and we were also setting up base camp which was to the right of the frame.

The other thing is…I recognize just from the “shuffle” (okay..okay stumble) just whom the researcher is. In fact, that same researcher rode shotgun with me to the East Coast Bigfoot Conference outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. in late 2011.

I kind of chuckle when some (and a mean one or two) try to insist it’s a Sasquatch by insisting I am wrong or by asking me, “Am I sure?” or that, “How can you be sure, they (Sasquatch) are extremely sneaky and quiet.”

Well I can state this:

“How am I so sure?

I can tell you the time of day, the exact location and what was going on at the time of the interview, how long I sat for the interview, what I was sitting on, and despite it being six years ago, I probably can get the exact date for ya as well.

How am I so sure??? ?…. I WAS THERE!!!

I can definitely state that the people that question me, ‘Am I sure?’ and want to argue, were not there.”

Education Spotlight: How do hoaxer’s respond?

Without making judgment of anyone or anything. For those who sit back and watch, here’s a little scale to use when you are the audience.

Over my many years of debunking hoaxes, have observed a pattern in how hoaxers respond to their debunking, and it does vary by motive.

It should give the audience a good read on how one reacts when confronted with a hoaxing accusation as to where perhaps may lie the truth…

  • The one’s who are the jokers tend to be the one’s who say, “Okay…Okay…Ya got me.”
  • The one’s who are in it because of psychosis, tend to ignore it and disappear.
  • The one’s who get caught pretty quick disappear in like style.
  • The one’s who get caught and are deep in, that do not have sociopathic tendencies, bite back very little but maintain their stories like Todd Standing, Cliff Crook, Dave Shealy, Ivan Marx and tend to just plod along as if nothing is going on in  their own world.

Now the final group is the hoaxer’s with sociopathic tendencies. These are the folks that generally have a profit motive in mind when it comes to their hoax.

We have seen these traits consistently over the last ten years between Biscardi, Dyer and from Linda Newton-Perry.

  • Throw around insults, attack the debunker. (All of the above)
  • Claims of jealousy. (RD, Biscardi)
  • Claims of accuser “riding coattails” (RD- Biscardi)
  • Reflection against people on the other side of the debate. (RD)
  • Calling the debunker and supporters, “haters.” (RD)
  • Providing very little in new information to refute debunking. (All of the above)
  • Pointing out that “experts” have looked at evidence and believe in it, however “experts” are unnamed. (Biscardi – Dyer – LNP)
  • Ego stroking. (“I am the best Bigfoot Tracker in the world – RD”)
  • The true sociopathic tendency of “self victimization.” “ I am the hero here and these haters just keep picking on me, because they are jealous, and they want to be me…” (Yep we’ve heard this before. RD has said this numerous times)

While one of these on their own is not indicative of where the truth lies, the more of the above that appears on the responders checklist, the less likelihood the truth is on their side, due the fact is that the above is the equivalent of the sociopath survival guide.

What one must understand, is the “Long Termed” hoaxers are most likely sociopaths.

Here’s a excerpt from a great article by Mike Adams of the Natural News which backs up what I am saying.

“Sociopaths are masters are presenting themselves as heroes with high morals and philosophy, yet underneath it they are the true criminal minds in society who steal, undermine, deceive, and often incite emotional chaos among entire communities. They are masters at turning one group of people against another group while proclaiming themselves to be the one true savior. Wherever they go, they create strife, argument and hatred, yet they utterly fail to see their own role in creating it…

…One simple method for dispelling sociopathic delusion is to start fact checking their claims. Do any of their claims actually check out? If you start digging, you will usually find a pattern of frequent inconsistencies.

Confront the suspected sociopath with an inconsistency and see what happens:

Most sociopaths will become angry or aggressive when their integrity is questioned, whereas a sane person would simply be happy to help clear up any misinformation or misunderstanding.

Another very valuable red flag to recognize when trying to spot a sociopath is to see how they deal with attacks on their own integrity. If a sociopath is presented with a collection of facts, documents and evidence showing that he lied or deceived, he will refuse to address the evidence and, instead, attack the messenger!

If you really try to nail a sociopath down to answering a documented allegation, they will quickly turn on you, denounce you…

(And particular to RD)…Anyone who does not fall for the brainwashing of the sociopath is sooner or later kicked out of the circle and then wildly disparaged by the remaining members of the cult group.”


Finally…

This week on Squatchdetective Radio we’ll have on Doug Waller, researcher and investigator from Ohio, Join us 8PM EST this Thursday January 23rd, 2014!
