Sometimes I do have moments of clarity, and even thought people see me as a comedian at times, it is on this blog many times my seriousness comes out. After doing this for fifteen years, I am a veteran, but I‘m not the oldest war dog out there… but I do have a rather unique view… so here we go with this weeks blog…


The Last Five Minutes… of this hoax that is.

After “Shooting Bigfoot,” airs in the UK on BBC Storyville, the heat is finally coming down on Morgan Matthews.

This story just won’t seem to die, probably because of Morgan Matthews trying to maintain an interest in his film .


Matthews taking fire for being a hoaxer.

First according to the Bigfoot Evidence blog, Matthews is taking fire for being a hoaxer by some folks who have just seen the video. You can read their comments here.

Secondly, while retracing some prior research I saw something very interesting on my Google search…

Yes it actually says, “Morgan Matthews Bigfoot hoaxer.”

Here’s the Wikipedia screenshot…

Thanks to an intrepid YouTuber… we were now privy to seeing some low definition of the last five minutes of, “Shooting Sasquatch.”

The Last Five Minutes of Shooting Bigfoot


In my opinion, the interaction and reactions of Morgan Matthews seem a bit over the top and the whole thing looks staged and a “Blair Witch,” homage.


What the last five minutes tells us…

Well for one thing, what Matthews says at the end of the film, should have woken the tools that still believed in Dyer after watching the movie the hell up.

Remember when I warned people back in 2012, Dyer had bought some high end video equipment?

Well according to Dyer since the beginning, he got the tent video, then got more ribs, and BANG!

You can read this excerpt from Dyer’s own website…

             “It was September 6, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas. The 6th day of an expedition that would change lives forever. After hearing various reports from the homeless people in that area of seeing a giant hairy beast in this area dragging a deer across the roadway. Rick Dyer plans an expedition there with Morgan Mathews Director of the movie “Shooting Bigfoot.” The morning begins with a visit from Bigfoot (Rick lured in by nailing ribs to a tree they bought from a nearby Wallmart).

            Rick plucks up the courage to film the Bigfoot on his mobile phone and started to record what is now known as “The Tent Video”. Glancing over it’s should to look Rick dead in the eye. Both men having seen Bigfoot come out of the tents, while Rick picked up is gun ready to shoot but his hands went numb and he could not do nothing at that point. Bigfoot ripped the ribs off the tree and casually started to walk away. Every 4 or 5 steps it did the “classic Bigfoot” look turning its head every few seconds. Rick turned to Morgan who just freaked out. Matthews said “We gotta get him on film” he didn’t know that Rick already had the mobile phone video. They went straight back to Wal-Mart and bought about $200.00 worth of ribs. After they returned, Rick nailed these ribs all over the place.

Gun at ready which he originally thought would be for protection only waited for nightfall, with the see through net open all the way around and his night-vison on, he started to hear footsteps. Matthews also heard the noise and Rick helped him out of his tent. Morgan gets out with this huge camera and was helped up by Dyer and that when it all started. Dyer’s gun had a light at the end of it and both started walking through the woods…”

But to those who know “Rick’s version,” why is Matthews version different.

Here’s a few screen caps of what was stated in the film, as the film claims, Dyer tries to claim the film in Matthews camera, but returns LATER to get  the Tent Video.






The film goes on to show Dyer with former Veep, (hard to keep count these days), BJ Breshears.


So this should have set alarm bells off for all those who knew the story of Rick Dyer’s baloney both the HUGE story inconsistency and prior history and WHO SAW THIS FILM.


Mind you when I see the complete HD video of  the entire Dyer sequence, I believe I can correlate the 2011 camp photos with the camp you see in the movie.

What Do I Think?

What I think is some people had an extreme arrogance. And arrogance where they could not look at the side of being wrong. They got entrenched and bought in. The one thing you can never EVER do is buy in.

The proponents of Dyer that remained to the end, and I am not talking to the people belonging to the cult of Dyer who were never researchers before Rick Dyer 2012 and probably won’t be again.

But the researchers that remained to the end, are they complicit. Yes I do believe so. Why?

  • Failure to have any objectivity.
  • Having no evidence to base their claim on. (The words of a hoaxer as being the only source, is not evidence.)
  • Doing authentication videos without any on scene investigation and making things up. (Example – Portraying a campfire video from an earlier film and portraying it the one the said night of the incident. The authentication video itself was compiled from pictures Dyer had uploaded but not labeled)
  • Asking people to lie, because they believe they have the “moral imperative.” (That was covered here in this blog as a researcher angered that I had pointed out the previously published names of people to ask me to lie and state I was wrong.)
  • Profiteering off the coattails of the hoax with fiction rather than fact. Some people were pissed I wrote “Fifty Large,” claiming it was profiting off a hoax. In that case, I did several things, first I never sold it on Amazon. Second is mine I based mine on fact and had done research including getting 85 pages of police reports, which costs money. So my book had stuff exclusive to it. However this individual’s book was written basically on the flawed opinion that Dyer had killed a Bigfoot. If I’d bought it, I’d be demanding my money back.
  • Attempting to be getting to the truth, but then switch back to it’s real afterwards. Facebook FindBigfoot  sent me out to California to call Dyer’s bluff, or so they said. Perhaps they were looking for vindication to give the appearance of being unbiased. The later defended themselves as saying they paid for me to go to California. NO, they stated they used frequent flyer miles to obtain my ticket. Not quite paying. Any incidental expenses I incurred on my own. Made it soud like I was on the payroll. Seems like another attempt to set me as a patsy like Biscardi-Dyer tried in 2008. That didn’t work out for them all too well and neither did this either. Mind you I wouldn’t have thought much about it, if they had casually stated them sending me to California, but the manner in which they did, made it sound like they were unbiased. Nope they were very biased and did not listen to reasoning until it was far too late. Not only did they take themselves down, but Chris Noel as well.
  • The lack of remorse by any of them for any of their actions or by anyone they particularly wronged.
  • Spreading of rumors via PM’s saying that they have, had, or will members of their team inspect the body. Much like Dyer’s details, which are vague and non-committal, these statements were made of the same ilk. No names, dates or places.

Lets face it, FBFB and Chris Noel took similar paths. They backed a losing horse for whatever reason. If they think my ascent to where I am know today had all to do with the 2008 hoax they are very flawed in that train-wreck of thought. 

I don’t think FBFB gave Dyer anything special like Biscardi gave him in 2008, which was a circus of an international press conference. But Dyer was out to destroy the Bigfoot Community agian, and FBFB the biggest group on FB was an easy mark.

Rick Dyer likes to think everyone was riding his coattails. Half the station graphics on his vehicles that are networks he has never been on. If that doesn’t spell sociopath I don’t know what does.

Fact is, like I’ve said he was riding on the coattails of the Bigfoot community.

Perhaps he convinced the media hungry FBFB because of that thought process. I mean what was FBFB? How does one get 40K+ followers in such a short period of time. Well you don’t do it for free. And if you’re paying for that sort of thing, then there needs to be a return on investment right??? I mean they were sending FLIR’s out like candy, including to Rick Dyer. Funny, there was no thermals from Dyer at all.

But the thing is I never compromised integrity, I never compromised the truth, correcting any mistakes, improving processes.

And I put in the time, and hard work.

Things FBFB never did.

How do we take a negative and turn it positive

Well strangely I see many positives of this.

First, I think people now realize the bar that needs to be set for what constitutes real evidence versus subjective evidence versus BS. Folks have called out, rather quickly other smaller scale hoaxers and people will again be engaged in looking at evidence with a skeptical eye, something that has lacked in this field for the last several years.

Maybe people will start realizing that all the “serious” studies that have been done here and in Canada, that have been drawn out for so long, with millions spent, have been drawn out because they have NOTHING. At least nothing they prove to science with ease.

Stuff that we will call out when we see it. Or methodology and processes they know is wrong, but try to justify to us, he Bigfoot researcher, for acceptance when they really need to be justifying it to science. The reason they don’t is the reason for so much debate and mistrust.

And frankly I want people to double check what they see and read as evidence. Check and check again before making up their mind, even on my own stuff, especially on my own stuff. I am about the truth, the good, the bad and the ugly.  I am not perfect, neither is the next guy or gal. You will see no grandiose claims on legitimate sites. I don’t get much in the way of evidence every time I go out. On my site you see compilations.

But why is it we see so much damned beginners luck…over and over again by the same folks? I’m happy if I am able to extrapolate some recordings or pics over a season. And not every year or season is there an encounter. Folks need to put themselves in a reality check over what you see and believe.

Why is it we’ve had five people claim to have shot one of these creatures dead and yet there is no body. (Fred Beck, Frank Kerlow, “Bugs” Hale, Justin Smeja and Ricky Dyer)  Or nothing to support their claim other than just words. I have a feeling there’s a commonality here unfortunately. I don’t thing it’s too hard to figure out.

Of course all have excuses as to why there isn’t evidence.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Put up or shut up.

As far as setting Bigfoot research back, I’ve heard that a thousand times. The only thing that sets Bigfoot research back is the constant jibbing by the media, and our own short sidedness in dealing with other researchers, witnesses and sometimes our own families. The public forgets pretty damned fast.


Till Next Time,


Being steeped in reality is what we all need to be sometimes. Sometimes we need to listen to the “old timers,” and put ego aside, self included.

In other cases we need to stop becoming “dreamers.”

Sometimes we even stop being fair, or nice and become investigators. Verify.

Sierra Kills and Dr. Brian Sykes

This week we’ve had some major developments in Bigfoot body cases, the first via Dr. Brian Sykes, NatGeo Channel concerning the alleged Sierra Kills shooter Justin Smeja.


Justin Smeja…DNA all bear.  

Turns out everything is bear or nothing…the steak (which we knew from other DNA tests) and of course now the bloody boot which turned up no useable DNA. Hence no Squatch.

All we have is a video via a FLIR device by veteran researcher Bart Cutino that may or may not substantiate Sasquatch activity in the area the kill had allegedly occurred.

Still I must say that at least in those cases physical evidence was turned over to scientists for analysis, giving me the leeway to at least stay on the fence and have some hope.

But, as a friend said to me the other day, “Hope is for suckers.” Show me something concrete.

Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, the Sierra Kills now becomes that of Bigfoot Legend and Lore and much debate for the future generations of those who want to mix it up and fight over the topic, the same as the Ketchum Study, the PG Film, The Massacre Debate and so on and so forth.

MiB’s and Rick Dyer… AGAIN! 

It should come as no surprise that a person so angered over the Sierra Kill has been one Rick Dyer.

See many folks think that the major motivation was money. Wrong, not at first. It is no coincidence that He really started making the rounds again right after the announcement of the Sierra Kill. He publicly called Smeja a hoaxer, but claimed himself to be truthful.


Rick Dyer…”MiB’s took my Bigfoot…AGAIN!”

I mean how can you be the “Best Bigfoot Tracker in the World,” if someone else brought one down or in before you?

Let’s not forget, just how angry Dyer was with the old Team Tazer. He bought all the domain names he could with the name Team Tazer.

Then he tries to call out his enemies, when one or more (me) calls him out and actually goes to Los Angeles, he tries in vain to hurt me by attempting me to spend hundreds of dollars on a cab ride, which he claimed he would pay. Luckily it did not work out that way. Click here to read about the LA trip.



(From Left to Right) Plane Tic to LAX, LAX and the “No Show Party!” with Bugs Mitchell.

Then doesn’t show. Claims a great victory, leaving many of his followers stunned and saying, “What the ^&#*@?” The next day all but a small handful of his followers are left. In following weeks, more jump ship.

Little obsessed? You bet!!!

The Ketchum Study build up was at it’s peak as well. That became a bust for most over the course of the last year, as it has not been accepted by science.

Now that the Sierra Kill DNA is bear, and the Syke’s Study has made no significant Bigfoot breakthrough, it does not surprise me, in the least, that Dyer has bowed out and has been leading up to this since coincidentally with the announcement of the NatGeo show that would reveal the samples authenticity or not.


(Left) HotDocs in Toronto in April..decent turnout. (Right: Courtesy of Joe Mastroianni) the NY showing in November and post the calling Dyer’s bluff in LA in August… theater very empty.


MiB’s took his Bigfoot. Zero for originality, as he used that excuse in 2011 already. Sounds like someone is “selling their cabbages twice,” as my father used to say.

However, I don’t think for one second, this is the last of seeing Rick Dyer.

Unless the Feds get him this time.

Dyer’s website as of this morning has this message. Gone are the memberships, he was once selling.


Message on Dyer’s web site this morning, blog has been silent since Nov. 17th, 2013

But if there is someone claiming to bring one in or has bagged one, be certain Dyer will be there with another “Hank.”

If Dyer has any more supporters, then they need a severe reality check, as most did in August after I and some others called Dyer’s bluff in California. That sent a full house

The Aftermath

Why can’t some of us let this go…

well there is something teachable in everything here.

1. The No-Brainer: Some people are just liars…

                      hotairdownloaddownload (1)

(Left to Right) Famous Fibbers: Tom Biscardi (I saw it, I touched it, I smelled it), Allen (Musky Allen) Issleb (It was partially embalmed), Ricky Dyer (I am the best Bigfoot Tracker in the world), Linda Newton-Perry (If the photo of “Big Clyde” is a fake I will shut down Bigfoot Ballyhoo.)

Especially when they have a track record of it, making grandiose claims not attempting to support it with any evidence. Or the evidence upon closer inspection is doctored or misrepresented.

All, in my opinion seem to suffer some sort of defect, making up lies about people to further their cause or make them sound like the victim.

There is a commonality about all of them.

2. The Unfortunate Part: Some people are naïve, even if they are super intelligent. And sometimes play into the hoaxer’s plan.


Some of the more notable willing victims, Vermont researcher Chris Noel, and the Facebook FindBigfoot Team, who still had trouble coming to grips with the truth even after L.A.

Doesn’t make them evil, just makes them unreliable if they don’t change their methodology and trains of thought. I hope for their sake they do. I don’t like seeing anyone fail that had only good intentions and their mistake was believing in Dyer.

We are only human.

Unfortunately one of those human qualities is pride and ego.

Facebook FindBigfoot did make the statement of getting out of the game if this turned sour. And it did. So it is hard to say what the future holds for them. If they back out on it, will the world hold them to their feet to the fire like I did Linda Newton-Perry two years ago?

Difference there is Perry wasn’t a victim, she was the source of all the hoaxes on her site. FB/FB were approached by Dyer and believed him. The Issleb involvement cemented  their belief. So can we forgive them? I think so, but only if their work going forward is a little more objective.

They need to learn to listen to those who are in the know.

Example: I wrote a book on this Dyer guy as well as a few of his co-conspirators from 2008 since I was at ground zero…and they ignored everything I said for a majority of the time about the truth of this man… they were his victims.

And as true to life, some victims start off by being willing victims.

Too important of a lesson should be learned here by the the majority of the researchers that were naïve to believe in Dyer’s lies, were that they were only in research post Body Hoax 2008.

They wanted to give Dyer a pass on his previous actions. For some reason they forgot all his other lies between then and now, like another body, oh and the how the MiB’s got that one too.

But for the Naïve: Don’t want to believe me? Proceed at your own risk.

In Summary

We can let go of the parties responsible and ignore them.

But we should never forget them.

To forget them, we would end up forgetting the lesson.

And we as a race, do that all too often.

So it actually looks like we might start off 2014 with new business instead of all this unresolved stuff like Ketchum, Sykes, Smeja, Dyer, Smith… etc.

Till Next Time,


The Bigfoot Paradigm

People wonder why I’ve been very selective in posts the better part of this year. Well truthfully, I wanted to focus on the field research and getting boots on the ground rather than getting into the middle of the incessant quarrels within the Bigfoot Research Community.

But it is time to let people exactly know where I stand. This is how I feel, some of this not based on any fact, but rather opinion and gut feeling but some is too.

So let’s look at some of the classic or more philosophic debates:


Kill versus No-Kill: I have always been on the side of peacefully obtaining the evidence to prove the creatures existence. But I also know the absolute way of proving the existence of a Sasquatch is with a specimen. Science may actually demand it. The folks on the side of Kill, included the late Dr. Grover Krantz.

Still I won’t be the one to bring in a dead specimen.


Flesh and Blood versus Paranormal: Okay probably the argument that gets the most people heated. Listen I stand in the corner of, if it leaves tracks, hair, amongst other alleged things, and it’s naked, I would say flesh and blood. Not wormholes, UFO’s or telepathic, telekinetic, cloaking, transplanted people. If so, where’s the evidence?

Nope… I’m a show me guy. Rene Dahinden once said of James “Kewanee” Lapseritis, “He had 250 encounters with Bigfoot in his mind… that’s like saying you’ve had 250 sexual encounters but never got laid.”


Hominid versus Pongid: This is one of those categories where I really am not decided… could be either or something completely different. Gigantopithicus, Australiopithicus, Heidlebergensis, who knows? But we are talking primate.

So where on the primate tree it fits? I will wait for discovery and not venture a guess. But being a primate, that can tell us a lot as well.

Now for some of the newer arguments…


Profit versus Non-Profit: There sometimes is an outcry by some in protest of conferences and people who charge for trips with them or their organization into the forests in search of our favorite cryptid. I see this in several different ways.

First, nobody is forcing anyone to pay anything for anything unless it’s under the title of the Affordable Healthcare Act. Truth is people pay for entertainment and experiences.  It’s also very common and accepted practice in the paranormal community.

I say to each to his own. (Personally as I have stated before I would never charge for folks to go on expedition with me, it would be my honor to have them along.)

Second, I feel if you pay me for something, you get something in return that’s tangible. A DVD, a book, something.

Lastly, if you do things legitimately, and above board I could care less, good luck and God speed.

Finally on this topic I would just like to say…Caveat Emptor!


The MK Davis/John L. Johnsen Massacre Theory: I include Johnsen in this because he was the first who went public about the theory, and at the time was working on a film with MK.

Now for those playing “catch-up,”

The theory states, based on some miniscule, split second coloration on the Patterson/Gimlin film that allegedly lends credence to Patterson and Gimlin alleged killing several if not more Sasquatch. Bottom line to me, sounds pretty thin, considering the evidence.

Sounds more conspiracy theory than fact. 

The Justin Smeja/Sierra Kills Saga: Justin Smeja kills a baby Sasquatch but gets guilt ridden and leaves it behind. Sounds crazy right? Well this one I’m on the fence on. There are things that intrinsically bug me about this.

I pucker every time someone says they’ve killed one but, oops don’t have the body.  100 percent of the time in the past it turned out to be BS… so the odds are not in favor here.

But on the same token, Smeja has showed moxie, passing a lie detector test, and has stuck to his story and has been doing everything and anything to get his boot sample tested. The people on the investigation side of this are tops.

On the fence, I won’t condemn someone for something I can’t prove. Like any other witness, “trust but verify.”

The verification, hopefully will be with the Sykes DNA study. If not we may never know.

The Melba Ketchum Study: Dr. Ketchum states the Sasquatch are a hybrid human. Not accepted by any of the scientific community. Ketchum cries foul, buys her own journal, publishes it when it’s been rejected.

Again the step out of the normal process, and some of the anthropological facts not meshing with her peer rejected study, leads me to conclude, I don’t feel good about it at all and sorry I can’t accept it as factual, at least at this time.

To sum it up

Yes I am sure I’ve missed some of the smaller arguments. Perhaps even a big one that has never crossed my path.

See the thing is, I feel no malice towards those whom are on the other side of the spectrum on these issues with me, because the bottom line is we are all in this for one goal, to prove the Sasquatch’s existence. We all have opinions and different beliefs and even reasons as to why we are in the search.

There are no experts amongst colleagues.

In fact some of the nicest people I’ve met, have been opposed in some beliefs that I have.

I encourage diversity, but also sanity as well. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.

Till Next Time,


I have remained silent on the subject of Rick Dyer for a few months after his failed attempt at torpedoing anyone who showed up in California to see his “live baby.”

Of course we called that as a hoax before even embarking on the trip as we did his tent video and new dead body claims for the last year.

Since our coverage began of the Bigfoot Body Hoax Part Deux, we’ve seen Dyer falling apart piece by piece as we’ve and others like Racer X, have predicted.

Last month, as he has done in the past made an exodus from the scene yet again, because once again he is using the excuse his family is being threatened.

We’ve also seen quite the exodus, again as predicted, from Team Tracker. We’ve seen more Vice Presidents (DJ Brashear, Cindy Schaefer,  Chris Sands and now Frank Cali) not since the likes of the Nixon administration in a rotation of resignations of Vice Presidents and citations of illegality, immorality and down right mean spiritedness, by the expatriates.

One of the most vocal and outspoken, has been probably one of the closest to Dyer is Frank Cali.

I had an opportunity to ask Frank some questions in written form to him.

Some of the answers have been edited down for space and relevance to the questions:

1. How did you end up becoming VP of Team Tracker, what did Dyer promise in terms of money?

“Chris Sands was made VP after Pink left. He had the title for a week and really didn’t have time for it due to work and family. Dyer says he really wanted me, but I had just had the heart attack and they wanted me the recover. I was told I would be well taken care of for all my work when he got the money for the body.”

2. What were some of the first signs you saw that Dyer was making the whole thing up?

Dyer had told the entire team and people who listened to his radio show I was coming on the week BEFORE then to see the body. What he wanted to do was to get talk going among people that I was there and had seen it. I had seen nothing.

The next week I flew to Vegas at my own expense. That night I didn’t say a word waiting to see if he really was getting me "in" to see the body. Dyer announced to everyone and said "Frank, come in, we have someplace to go"

We got in the car and he drove me to a fast food place 10 minutes from his home and he ordered ICE CREAM" and eat it in the car. He told me that he could not get me in to see the body and that he was having a reproduction made of the body to take on tour.

I thought that was kind of odd and said "Why do that?" Dyer said he planned and switching them back and forth. When we got back, I stayed outside for awhile because I knew then it was all a hoax and I was upset.”

3. When Dyer tried his "California caper" was it apparent to you as it was to us, that he never expected to have someone call him on it?

Yes, he never thought you or JR Dobbs would come. He kept me in the dark right up until the last minute on that one.

4. Did Dyer ever confess the whole thing was a sham to the Team Tracker Execs or was he also playing them as well?

No, He never told me or anyone else that I know of the truth. He would lie to me about all kinds of things and it must made me mad that he thought I was stupid considering back background.

To this day, he still has never told me that he didn’t move to Utah. When he claimed the "investor" told him to move due to the made up threats, he said they gave him $100,000 to relocate for safely reason. I knew he only moved a short distance from his other home in Vegas.

One very important thing was I pressed him to release the video of this "Dead" Bigfoot to the public as he called and said he needed $6,500 to get the trailer done that he was getting made to transport the body. I said to him "Well, you have the greatest video of all time. Why don’t you release it and do it tonight. That should get you the $6,500 you need.

He promised that I would get to see it, but I never did. The biggest thing to make me say was it’s time to leave was when he called me again and said he need another $6,000 for another trailer and the one being built allegedly was sold die to him missing the final date to the payments.

I asked him what happened to the money he got for the DVD’s "After the Shot". He said "Well, I got to eat" and it’s spent" That when I deceased that was enough. I had been on his show saying that he would release them when he hit the 100 mark. When he never said showed me the footage. I told him that I could not do it anymore and I stopped doing the show that night.

A few days later he called me on a Sunday morning at 10am eastern and said he was up all night and that he already had announced that he was stepping down to devote full time on the tour and I was now "President".

I have been around for a long time and had seen just about everything. For sure when I worked In DC. I knew then for sure that he was going to try and hang me out to dry and blame me for everything. I was smart and never had any money to do with him ever sent to me.

Anything anyone paid also always was sent direct to his PayPal account which now has been frozen due to so many people taking my advice and asking for their money back. PayPal now has the authorities investigating him and his actions.

5. Can you name the folks whom Dyer seemed obsessed over and some examples how great his obsession was?

Yes!. He was most obsessed with you Racer X, Michael Merchant, Shawn Evidence, Justin Smeja. Now he’s turned his attention on former Team Tracker people such as myself.

Dyer has also tried to trash the name of Dallas Gilbert and Tom Stickle, another former team, member. All of what Dyer says and writes about them is a complete lie.

6. Did you ever meet Lilly (Rosa) and if so, did her relationship seem normal with Dyer?

Yes I met her when we came to Vegas for the Mt Charleston trip. I have heard a lot of bad things about that relationship from people. Also someone close to them has heard her telling Dyer he better get that body made soon.

7. Dyer appeared to have a bit of a sadistic streak. Can you give me some examples of such and can you support of dispel any rumor of Dyer being a drug user?

I believe he his bi-polar and also a pathological liar. He lied to me every time he called me. Still to this day, he has never told me the truth that he told me that he moved to Utah I knew he was only moving to another place in Vegas. The home he has now they say is "Section 8" housing.

I never seen him use drugs, but most of the time he would call or if I need to call him during the day, he sounded like something was not right. I asked him many times if he was ill and he said no.

But he did sound like he was under the effects of something not normal. low, very draw out speech and sounded like he was allegedly on or doing something.

There were times when I would talk to him at 6pm and he sounded messed up on something and then a few hours later that same night when he did the hangout, he appeared fine.


Capture of the controversial episode where Dyer wipes a mysterious powder from a table, then repositions the camera. (Credit: YouTube.com)

8. What really happened when Dyer got caught with the drugs behind his camera that one broadcast? Did he ever fess up?

He tried to burn the award he was given by Facebook/Find Bigfoot on that dresser. It caught fire and someone told him to run and get salt to put the fire out. Here is a "grown man" setting to something in his home with his wife and 3 small children in it.

Just recently he did a video on his YouTube channel making fun of a "person" who allergy makes him act like he’s on the drug cocaine. He got all the gestures right on the button.

I have a relative who is retired drug enforcement and had him watch the Dyer video and he said "He does a great impression for someone who claims he don’t do drugs."

9. Aside from his sales through memberships, and DVD’s has the Dyer had any real private investors aside from FBFB? Is it true that Dyer claimed that FBFB bought his rifle?

He does claim to have "investors", but I don’t think he has anyone at this time or in the past year. He did sell FBFB a gun for a huge amount of money. The thing that got my attention and I have told this to them is when I would write about that gun.

Dyer would always say "make sure you say it was a gun SEEN" in the movie "Shooting Bigfoots". Do Not say "It was the gun USED to shot the Bigfoot" .

A lot of alarms when off when I heard that.

10. Does Dyer have any thermal equipment or sold any thermal equipment?

He did have 2 FLIR camera on loan arraigned through FBFB. He held on to them for some time pretending that he was going to throw them out. he even posted a photo of the 2 camera’s setting in front of a greasy pizza box as garbage. He now claims he sent the FLIR’s back. But as we all know, you can believe anything he says. I do hope he sent them back. FBFB was very kind to arrange for him to have these very expensive camera’s on loan.

11. Any closing comments?

I now know for a fact that Morgan Matthews has never with Dyer at the time of the claiming he shot the tent video. There was NO Bigfoot recorded with Dyers cell phone with Matthews present.

Matthews believes that as is seen in the end of the movie "Shooting Bigfoot" he was ‘attacked’ by a man in a suit. Morgan Matthews will not make this fact known while the movie is in its general release.

Then there is the DVD sales and then the pay-per view . People must remember that it’s called the motion picture industry.

Like another industry, the main concern is profit.

Think for a minute; IF there was an actual Bigfoot filmed during production of that movie. It WOULD be in that picture. That would be a gold mine for any studio.

I do also believe that Matthews i snow sorry it got involved with Dyers and his lies and Rick Dyer may destroy Matthews gold reputation in the movie business.

Word now is that Matthews has canceled his scheduled appearance in New York City this coming November. I feel he does not want to have to answer any questions in regard to the lies Dyer has been saying about he film for this past year.

I encourage anyone who bought the DVD "After the Shot" and or "The Autopsy to has for a total refund as about 17 or so people have already done.

Dyer has had is PayPal account frozen by PayPal due to them offering buyer protection. PayPal now must pay back these people for the purchase and they will in turn go after Mr. Dyer

 clipart_firelight_014 And now news of the dumb, Speaking of “Shooting Bigfoot”

It’s “Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty meets Deliverance!”

Here it goes… the story we’ve been waiting for when two hapless “researchers” go into the woods with guns to “Kill themselves a Squatch,” and one ends up getting shot in the back by the other, luckily nothing life threatening.

*(Please note that the quotes next to the following pictures are parody and were not really said by the “contestants.)

Contestant Number 2 Contestant Number 1: ‘I heard something bark, and next thing you know, my gun went off. I also accidently discharged my firearm too.’

But it gets better…

Both contestants were carrying, but the one shot was a felon, (Contestant Number Two), which is generally frowned upon by law enforcement. SO despite being shot…Contestant Number Two is arrested also!

Contestant Number 1 Contestant Number 2: Will no longer be taking “point” on future missions. 


It seems the wife of Contestant Number One (Daughter of Contestant Number Two for those keeping score), lied when questioned by the police, thus becoming Contestant Number 3, making it (as you hockey fans would call) it a “Hat-Trick” for the local constabulary.

Contestant Number 3 Contestant Number 3: ‘A family that gets arrested together, stays together…at least until sentencing.’

Sounds like their version of “Finding Bigfoot”  became “Finding Buckshot.”


Here’s the story in all it’s glory.

Three Arrested, One Shot In Rogers County Sasquatch Hunt

Posted: Nov 03, 2013 11:10 AM EST Updated: Nov 03, 2013 4:51 PM EST

Dee Duren, NewsOn6.com



Rogers County Sheriff’s Department arrested three people in what appears to be an accidental shooting. One of the men told deputies he’d shot his friend while the two were on a Sasquatch hunting expedition.

The two men were hunting – apparently for Bigfoot – around 177th East Avenue and Tiger Switch Road Saturday night. Omar Pineda reportedly heard a "barking noise," jerked and shot his friend in the back, authorities say.

"When you start off with an explanation like that, do you believe anything after that?" Sheriff Walton said Sunday morning.

The men met emergency responders at a QuikTrip near Interstate 44 and 161st Street. The wounded man is expected to survive.

Pineda, 21, was arrested for reckless conduct with a firearm and obstruction.

Deputies also arrested Perry Don James, Pineda’s father-in-law. James threw his son-in-law’s gun in a pond on the property because he is a convicted felon and was afraid to have the gun on his property, the Sheriff said.

James, 53, was booked on complaints of felon in possession of a firearm and destruction of evidence.

The shooting victim was also carrying a gun, though he dropped it when he got shot, according to a news release. That gun has been recovered.

Deputies arrested 22-year-old Lacey Jane Pineda, Omar’s wife, for obstruction because she told police at one point that someone else had shot at her husband and his friend, according to RCSO.

Walton said the incident is still under investigation. Authorities haven’t yet determined whether drugs or alcohol were involved, he said.

"It probably was an accidental shooting," Walton said. "Our efforts now are to locate the weapon that was used."


Sad thing is the area they were on the “hunt,” actually looks pretty damned good for Squatch activity.


Till Next Time,


Many months ago, a BFRO expedition organizer was jammed up for a bit at a National Park. Seems the Feds were fed up with people charging other people to walk through, camp and hike at their park.

Squatchdetective.com has learned that Rick Dyer will be doing the same:



Advertisement that was on Gold Member’s page prior to site crash of 5/13/13. 





So in case Mr. Dyer wants to avoid incursion with Federal wildlife officials, he might want to choose an alternate location. As an FYI, insiders have told us that the Bigfoot Tracker Ohio expedition originally scheduled for April 26,27,28 which was later moved to May 17, 18, 19 has been cancelled basically due to lack of interest.

So what does one get on a supposed Team Tracker Expedition, (remember we exposed on this blog earlier this year, most pictures of previous expeditions by BF Tracker.com to be stock imagery).

Well, obviously it is supposed to be an Expedition of a Lifetime…



This really should say it all, as really, Dyer’s obsession with being a superstar and being 100 percent correct, one hundred percent of the time is starting to implode the Team Tracker group and to his “customers” (victims).


Dyer crumbling1


And in case everyone is wondering here is Mr. Dyers event schedule line up:



See the Video # 2 release? What have we been saying since late last year when our investigation revealed Dyer buying movie making equipment?

And how can you guarantee when the “Body Tour” will be??? Doesn’t mainstream science need to verify this? How can you set a date on a tour?

And let me get this straight… (CHRIS NOEL…HERE”S EVIDENCE FOR YA!)

  1. Dyer says Minnow was in possession of the body hence the Navigator . No explanation as to how it came back to him. Apparently gets a pass from FBFB and sympathizers on that one.
  2. Makes statements that universities and scientists are looking at it, yet is non-specific as to who it may be. No announcements except by Dyer on this point.
  3. If the film that is released on Aug. 14th, 2013 is of a body on a slab…wait a minute…isn’t the universities examining it now? Or will “Musky” Allen Issleb be part of that film? Or is this just “additional footage” that Dyer will claim that allegedly was shot in September last year.
  4. Did anyone see the copyright date on the end of “Shooting Sasquatch?” Hmm..pretty interesting, if it says 2011 won’t it? (Films put their copyrights on films when they are completed btw, not when they are begun.)
  5. How about all the pre movie inconsistencies, the FBFB authentication film, the fact the tent picture was on BF Tracker since August, Dyer not billing the movie, first at the correct venue, and then saying it would be vindication for him.


Posted on BF Tracker before the release of “Shooting Sasquatch” at Hot Docs

Remember dear readers, while some think little details are trivial, they are far from it. Far too many criminals and bad guys are caught with a small trivial detail which leads them to eventuality. 

Now for some interesting trivia…

Mr. Dyer says I’m obsessed with him… but look closely how he has over the last couple of years try to look like me, going to the shaven head, and even the same facial hair patterns. Pretty creepy.  No, not obsessed, otherwise I’d be thinking about his hoax and him all day long. I just don’t like hoaxers that’s all.

But on the other hand, look at Mr. Dyer. Making up stories about people, adding more lies to excuse the lies he made up in the first place.

Now Mr. Noel contends there is no evidence of a hoax. That this is all hater’s gloating over the disappointment of FBFB and “Shooting Sasquatch.”

In all honesty, I’ve tried very hard to get them to see the light after the movie in one last attempt.

But you see folks, I find it very difficult, when a person as respected as Mr. Noel, and to some extent FBFB, to just look the other way at contradictory evidence.

What we see are at the very least, people becoming accomplices after the fact. If they had some argument against the evidence against Dyer’s claims, but they don’t.

Instead they make excuses, that these are from people that are mad, taking things out of context and nitpicking. They make blanket statements like, “we know more than you know.” They have become Dyer apologists.

I call bullshit to all of it. They’re accomplices after the fact. Not saying they know anything, they may very well believe he has a body, but their malfeasance makes them responsible.


Stunned by the lack of what Dyer would said would be in the film, FBFB in conference. Later they would become excuse makers for Dyer, on how it was Matthews fault.

Yes they may be gullible naïve, and not in on it at the beginning, but ignoring evidence with logical argument with evidence, which so far other than 2 seconds of film in a documentary that makes fun of the community, there has been no proof for their argument.

The minute Dyer had a claim, or when it was revealed the “Tent Video",” was revealed here by us, to be Dyer, their “Bullshit Detectors” should have been on high alert.

Instead of questioning inconsistencies, they accepted excuse after excuse. And instead of putting the brakes on then, they took Dyer’s word as Gospel.

Folks FBFB and Chris Noel (at least on this case) are not acting like researchers or investigators. That is appearance.

They walked in, as FBFB does with ALL of its videos, “How can we prove this real?”

Real investigators walk in with the attitude, “How can I reasonably debunk this.” Only then will it lead you to the proper conclusions to extraordinary claims.

The Body Cases… What Gives?

Frankly it does not matter in the spectrum of who I like and whom I dislike. I like Dyer, although his latest stunt and lies, have brought that to unlike, but not hate. He in his sociopathic mind thinks its funny. Although not so much anymore I think.

Here’s five body cases to throw at you:

1. Frank Kerlow – 1960’s claimed to have a BF body (HOAX)

2. “Bugs” Hale – 1980’s and 90’s, claimed to have buried Sassy. (HOAX)

3. Dyer-Whitton-Biscardi – 2008 “Bigfoot on Ice.” (HOAX)

4. Justin Smeja – 2010, claimed to have shot 2, killed one juvenile. (UNDER INVESTIGATION)

5. Rick Dyer 2012 – Yeah… (UNDER INVESTIGATION)

The first three have all been proven to be hoaxes. In all three cases there was no physical evidence that could be traced to the incident. In case number three the single lone sample, was possum contaminated by human.

What does that tell us today about the two unsolved cases:

How Smeja differs. Not that I am saying his account is truthful, but I am having a difficult time not being directly involved in the case, so my sense here is purely analytical.

Like #3 he has submitted samples to a lab that has come back as contaminated, however items were not claimed to have been cut off body, as with case # 3. Smeja also took and passed a lie detector test. A bold move, although not entirely conclusive.

Since I know two investigators on the case… I will leave that to them to get to the truth. I am not the “end all, be all.” Never claimed to have been. The Smeja case is in very competent hands.

Dyer’s case, No physical evidence provided, except one person who has claimed to see the body. In direct similarity to Case #1 listed. Kerlow originally had an accomplice, who played a minor role in a verification method. Like the Bugs case, Dyer is the only one talking.

Don’t you think, the assistant producer, who no longer works for Minnow would be talking? Matthews? No all you get is round abouts? Why? It helps the film along and keeps them out of trouble, (at least that’s what they perceive it as.)

Fact is that Dyer’s case despite some of the hype, is not to the level of 2008’s hype. If you look on it, on the surface, out of the list above, the 3 known hoaxes (cases 1-3) this one does not differ from them nor in any way rise to any unusual circumstance.

Till next time,
