Our Bigfoot Research
In our Sasquatch / Bigfoot research, technology definitely helps us see things that otherwise tend to be hidden, so we take the following research tools on our expeditions:
Night vision with infrared to see in the dark
Stealth cameras that are placed in trees at suspected crossing paths
Digital cameras and a HD video recording device
3 digital audio recorders, and a shotgun microphone to zoom in on sounds
But the most important thing is to spend as much time as possible exploring the beautiful
Our greatest asset is our camping gear that allows us to stay in remote areas for up to
2 weeks at a time, even in sub-freezing temperatures. Our longest trip this year was eight consecutive nights in the field.
What do we look for in our Bigfoot research?
Besides the obvious answer of Class 1 Bigfoot sightings, there are signs to look for to detect their presence.
Trees, often Aspen trees, that are broken and the top part is stripped down and angled sideways.
Sasquatch may do this as a show of force and/or to mark their territory.
We look for footprints that are very long and wide, that are obviously not be human.
Toe impressions are important, since people don’t walk around barefoot in the woods.
Sasquatch are very heavy, so their foot compacts the soil much more than other animals.
The stride, which is the length between the footprints, indicates the height of the animal.
Where there’s animals, there’s scat, and large scat indicates a big animal. The length of the pile exceeded 12″.
Bears typically eat berries, so they will show up in the scat.
This scat also had a very pungent smell that we feel most resembles the smell of a Sasquatch.
