This year seems a bit strange to me. For the first time in several years nothing major was going on. No Ketchum Project, No Sierra Shooting style news, the Sykes project is pretty much finished. Kind of sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the “next big thing.”

Nonetheless the field team and I did stretch our legs a bit this year however, although nothing at all to report we had a wonderful time and getting out there with one of our Western NY folks Mike!

We have gotten a trickle of sightings reports coming in, and we are actively investigating this long term situation. We visited the property and are extremely excited at the prospect of obtaining some evidence.

 


Air time!!!

Radio2

We are now looking for guests for Squatchdetective Radio as we go to a whole new user friendly format.

We will no longer be a live format show, unfortunately because of schedules and finding a network host that could work for us. We just couldn’t make a live show work since our hiatus, so we’ve gone to this more polished format.

We may however once a month or so do a Google Hangout Free for all… Be kind of cool to see who just may show up!

Chris Bennett and I look forward to getting on with getting on!! If anyone is interested on being a guest, just drop me a line at radio@squatchdetective.com.


Legal Beagle… On to the BS D’jour!

On Thursday, May 14th, 2015 I received a “nasty-gram” in my email from Biscardi attorney and Biscardi business partner, Dennis Kazubowski.

It started with this wonderful quip…

“On March 25, 2008, you signed a Limited Association Agreement with Searching for Bigfoot Inc. which is attached to this letter. According to the document you signed, you agreed to hold in confidence any information gathered and further agreed not to disclose or reveal to any person or entity any information discovered under the agreement without the express prior written consent of the other parties.”

                              -Letter to Steve Kulls from Biscardi attorney, Dennis Kazubowski 5/14/15

 

Well I did sign a Limited Association Agreement for a single expedition on March 25, 2008 which would serve as my last outing as a contractor with Biscardi.

I find it a bit odd that an attorney would list this as the first salvo in an attempt to have me remove my Blog and Hall of Shame pages on Biscardi and his activities.

Because this is what the confidentiality agreement ACTUALLY said…

“The parties to this agreement agree to HOLD IN CONFIDENCE any information gathered from this expedition and further not to disclose or reveal any person or entity or any information disclosed under this agreement…”

 

He kind of left out the whole, from this expedition,” part. Since I revealed nothing about my last expedition with SFBI part on my Website or Blog… that’s out.

The confidentiality clause was part of a LIMITED agreement, clearly defined and stated within the agreement.

As far as the Hall of Shame Page, my book “Fifty Large,” both California, and New York have a ONE year statute of limitation on defamation claims. Nevada, the State in which Biscardi’s enterprises have filed there incorporations has a two year statute. Since the Hall of Shame Page came out in 2010 and Fifty Large in 2011, they’re out as fair game for any consideration for defamation.

As far as libel, defamation, what have I said that was not backed up by fact?

That Biscardi was involved in the 2008 hoax? The other two hoaxers implicated him.

It was his words and actions and statements (everyone remember “touched it, felt it, smelled it, on Fox News?”) put his responsibility in question.

Why didn’t he sue Dyer and Whitton? In “Not Typical Bigfoot Movie,” Biscardi stated he would sue anyone that would hoax him?

Another element in a defamation case is a falsity with malice or malicious intent.  The latest blog I had posted simple facts and what a cited source had told me.

Biscardi claiming to see a video of your truly riding ATV’s with two hoaxers, as proof I had set him up, when no such video exists because it never happened; THAT is defamation.

Reporting facts, citing sourced information and analysis of such facts is NOT defamation or libel.

Editorial license, is also not defamation nor libel when there is evidence and actions to bring up reasonable questioning. Even parody when it pertains to public figures, (which Biscardi is rest assuredly) as long it does not blur the lines of truth.

It is a fact that Biscardi set up a foreign company with a man under indictment who subsequently plead guilty, for a Ponzi Scheme,who was the former CFO for Searching for Bigfoot.

David A. Nilsen (Source: Monterey County Weekly.com)

In fact the Monterey County Weekly called Nilsen, “Monterey’s Madoff.” In reference to convicted Ponzi schemer, Bernie Madoff.

Nilsen was indicted on September 8th, 2009 and the indictment was unsealed on September 10th, 2009 after he had surrendered to authorities in San Jose. Nilsen subsequently pled guilty in a plea bargain in Oct. 24th, 2011 and received a sentence of 97 months, in 2012. (Source: FBI.gov)

Very clear from the Nevada Department of State, this Foreign Corporation headed by Nilsen and Biscardi, was clearly after Nilsen’s indictment (June 8th, 2010). It’s status was revoked, however I am unclear of the reasoning behind the revocation, and it could have been something as simple as a missed filing.

Over 250 pages of police reports, public records and an SFBI Business Plan given to me from Rick Dyer which he had gotten from Biscardi.  (Source: Steve Kulls)

My personal opinion of Biscardi, is irrelevant, I do not go on this blog, my sites or other Podcasts and speak untruth without the evidence to back such up about anyone.

And I am not bullied so easily, especially when I lined my ducks up carefully. That’s my profession. My suggestion; “Don’t poke this bear.”


On the road again…

What a year it has been so far! I didn’t get the chance to get out to Salt Fork this year due to work commitments but did do the yearly Cabela’s Rare Strange and Unusual Sightings Weekend in March.

Hey gang, a quick update from a weekend reconnoiter by One of our team leaders, Ted V.

Over the weekend Ted traveled to Research Area 1 when he met up with researchers from the Northeast Anomalous Research group when they noticed two trucks with yellow “Bigfoot Crossing” signs on them. (All my Team vehicles are unmarked.)

As they scouted the area they came across these obviously hoaxed tracks:

Obvious fake prints found in Research Area 1

(Credit: Ted V. / Squatchdetective Field Team)

 

In the 2013 we noticed a sharp downturn in activity, with the exception of a rock throwing incident which occurred in the fall of the same year. Last year we only took one trip there in the Spring and due to the inactivity, we considered the area “spent,” at least for that year.

Sad thing is, hoaxers of this amateurish sort do not understand that after doing this for 16 years this is kind of the thing that we spot from a distance and call it.

It’s either, “Wow a great print,” (a rarity especially given the substrate of New York State forests) or “see the arch, that’s a human foot,” or “that’s a stamper!” In this case… it’s a stamper.

So the prints the hoaxer made will not get posted as evidence, or as an exciting find, but rather a pathetic individual’s attempt at creating some noise and as a tool for teaching.

Any researchers out there, feel free to use these photos to show folks what phony tracks look like. How we notice the uniformity of the print, the squaring and finally the lack of any toe splay whatsoever.

They thought they would get us, but instead the joke is on them.

Research Area 1 had been my primary area since 2000, when an encounter was reported to me. It had yielded some great results over the years and some interesting encounters.

Since we know there is at least one hoaxer in this area, we have no choice but to move on and move on happily knowing we have many more productive areas to explore.

But you never know..we may just hide some cameras to get a snapshot of our hoaxer too!

A great thank you to Ted and N.E.A.R. for making this discovery.

 

Till Next Time…

Squatch-D

You know I have been sitting here quietly over the last few months saying very little to make enemies or to rattle cages.

My intent is not to make enemies but IS to rattle cages. Inevitably that leads to making me unpopular with some. But the “some” I am not worried about, because they have the same cult-like proprieties that the Dyer followers had.

 


The Squatchmaster?

First the analysis of “The Squatchmaster” Jeff Patterson’s YouTube Video he had put out based on alleged audio he had gotten off his recorders.

Published on Sep 5, 2014 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1a_JpY_7ubs&feature=youtu.be

After retrieving my digital recorders that were set out around us,this was found on the one near where the Sasquatches were hiding.”

—- Jeff Patterson aka “The Squatchmaster”

 

The first thing you notice, the audio quality seems a bit weird. It seems to me is sounds like a recording of a recording, with compression and an echo added into the mixer of the audio.

See I know a little about those effects and mixing, though I am no expert. But I was a front man and singer in a Heavy Metal band about 8 years ago.

A You Tube user, who claimed to have been an audio expert, suggested all we were listening to was speech in reverse.

That combined with the effects, we figured we give it an analysis and score one for the truth, we debunked it as a hoax. Because reversing the speech also accompanies all those other things such as compression and echo, you find on programs like Audacity, Wave Pad and the like.

Here’s the video we did on the analysis…

Latest analysis, debunking the “Squatchmaster’s” Audio as a hoax.

***

Apparently I wasn’t the first to come up with the idea of putting it to the test as I found out shortly after posting this.

My friend Randy Filipovic also dug a little deeper last night, not only pulling out some, now deleted, admissions from Patterson, but also reversed the audio on the “Squatchmaster’s” video as well.

Randy’s account can be read on his Bigfoot Anarchy Blog here.

Great to know everyone is on the same wavelength.                                                       – Steve

BF Deal???

Next is a Facebook group, I can’t take seriously. Someone added me to the group, probably the group’s leader Ed Waterman himself. Nonetheless… these are just a couple of the photos being posted there which to me defy any logic and turn serious research in a farce…

HUH.Ugh

So now this is one of two things. Complete delusion, or just plain lazy hoaxing. I mean, take a picture of the woods and say…see the Sasquatch? 

onepostsay what 8JPG


Well Mr. BF Deal…two can play at this game…

CameraZOOM-20140916122746052

Here’s me and my “Forest Friend” Marty…at least I think its Marty… haven’t quite figured out his complete name..so we call him Marty. He only cloaks for photos, video and can change his temperature colder so he looks invisible if someone has a thermal imager.

CameraZOOM-20140916123044351

Here’s Marty’s big internet debut. Can anyone see he’s kneeling down while he’s cloaked? That’s a huge ability, and only certain Forest Friends have that ability. He soon will become some human’s teacher.

 

Circled

Here’s Marty’s family. They are not allowed across the railroad tracks just yet, because they are having a bit of a problem figuring out what Railroad crossing signs are. I have a good friend in Sandusky, may just be able to help them out!!!


Now to a more serious note…

Look forward soon to seeing the return of Squatchdetective Radio.

From the Field…

DSCN3481

Prepping for the daytime scouting mission.

 

The field team was out a couple of weeks ago to a new area and we were quite surprised to obtain some audio, we are currently analyzing. The area was remote and terrain difficult.

We look forward to giving you some of the audio evidence sans the compression, echo and reverse effects and it will sound crisp and clear. Is it a Sasquatch we got?

I don’t know, but certainly not human.

Pictures will not contain red, yellow or magenta circles pointing out Sasquatch er..ah “Forest Friends” hiding in the bushes or cloaking. The only thing cloaked that weekend were my Smores… because I forgot the dang marshmallows.

Till Next Time,

Squatch-D

 

Hi gang… after a much needed rest, I am slowly easing myself into operational mode.


Have to mention this…

First, I think everyone is shocked and saddened at the loss of Robin Williams, not only being 63 but in the manner in which he has passed.

Many folks don’t know this but when I was a teenager, I had a friend who committed suicide hours after basically saying goodbye to all his friends, talking to them one last time. I spoke with him about an hour and a half before he took a .357 to the mouth.  It gave me a prolific manner in which I look at suicide.

Robin Williams 7/21/51 – 8/11/14

Let’s all take a minute to remember those friends we have that struggle with depression, and the devastating toll it takes not only on them but their family members and friends. Let’s reach out to them and make sure they are “ok.”

And if they need help… stage your own intervention. Get them the help. I know in all circumstances this is not possible, but if this message saves one person down the road, it has served its purpose.


Announcements:

On June 24th, I began working again as a private investigator once again, and my area covers five surrounding states. So I am on the road constantly during the week but have access (unless I am in God’s country) to email, internet and social networking.

On July 2nd this year my apartment flooded due to the malfeasance of the property caretakers. So we immediately packed and made an emergency move which worked out for the best.

So now we are into a month of casual unpacking. Soon to be in the field with the Squatchdetective Field Team again, and happy to get the Massachusetts contingent up and running.

We’re finalizing some reports from Vermont, thanks to our man there, Frank Siecienski and help from author Paul Bartholomew.

Squatchdetective Radio will be returning sometime in October as both Chris Bennett and I are looking forward to getting back into the hot topics of the Bigfoot world, and I am toying with a new format as well.

Lot’s of nothing has happened since my “vacation,” but since I’ve been nosing around things have been popping up like crazy.

Strange…2 of our three stories of the day have a derivative of “falcon” in it.


Falcon Project gets funded…

Internet rumor has it that the Falcon Project, run by our friend William Allen Barnes, has gotten $250K in funding for 3 dirigibles.

That’s stupendous! and congratulations are in order if true for their dedication and perseverance of getting the project off the ground, both metaphorically and literally.

There’s our first Falcon….now off to a Falconer!


Standing’s last stand?

As we’ve tried to educate readers here over the last 8 years, Todd Standing was my second inductee into the Hall of Shame. Even the man who “found God,” was number three.

In fact Todd puts the man who “found God” to shame. He hasn’t been just a flash in the pan. He’s been consistent making headlines over the years and actually has been able to garner a little credo, via the Canadian Parliament (who quickly retracted), and “Survivor Man,” and has managed to get Dr. Jeff Meldrum to co-host a radio show with him.

Reason being, is… he’s a better actor than, “I found Jesus,” whose over the top performances and “I dare you attitudes,” amongst other severe sociopathic tendencies has made him easy to read.

Fact is Todd’s delivery and presentation is much more an act of scientific presentation than a Barnum and Bailey act as the previous.

Over the years, such as Todd’s “Puppet Face” where we’ve pointed out the anomalies on the shadowing of the branches, even so much as having a photographic expert come on Squatchdetective Radio to verify as much, the line at the bottom of the septum (nose), as well and let’s not forget “Blinky,” where we completely destroyed the idea that was a video, but part of a composite.

The following was presented to me by Daniel Falconer and Phil Poling. It is a critical examination of the Sylvanic bigfoot videos released by Todd Standing.

cover

After reading such, it backs up many of the things we stated earlier over the years and has some other interesting analysis which rather slaps Standing right in the face, and it should be a cold shower to the “Standlings” aka Todd’s supporters.

Speaking engagement in October

Yes back to Chautauqua Lake this year for the weekend of October 24th –26th.

Different format and lineup this year, sans me of course, and we will be bringing Vermont Researcher Frank Siecienski (also who nabbed the Vt. Trail Cam Photo in 2010). Other speakers TBA as soon as I hear confirmation. 

Things are in the works so I will try to get them to you as fast as possible.

2013-CLBF

Meanwhile event organizer Peter Weimer once again is trying to petition the State and Federal governments to offer protection to the yet to be discovered species as a precaution… that petition can be found here and I encourage all to sign and add their name to the ever growing list of people calling for protection of the species.

A brief sidebar…

For the conference “poo-pooers” out there note, the speakers in this conference are not being paid for their appearance, only certain expenses are being covered.

We do this because we love to talk all things Bigfoot / Sasquatch meet and greet other researchers and most of all hear more encounter reports straight from the witnesses.

If occasionally somebody pays me for a speaker honorarium etc. I put that towards the costs of website, radio show production, my cryptid / paranormal library and most of all equipment.

                                                                                                                —Steve

 

I hope to see some of you there!!!

Till Next Time…
