Finding Bigfoot Live Thread
Animal Planet ^

Posted on 02/19/2012 7:10:59 PM PST by matt04

Feb 19, 10:00 pm

The team travels to Kentucky to investigate a piece of footage that seems to show the glowing eyes of a bigfoot. With locals reporting activity in Daniel Boone National Forest, the team tries a new search technique to see there really are bigfoots in KY.

I predict they will find some “evidence,” such as a tree branch which will somehow prove the existence of Bigfoot.

Bigfoot are Nephilim, they are way more cunning than we are.

Forget Kentucky...they need to go to Aspen. Sighting reports of Bigfoot being seen on the ski slopes there.

if this is on Animal Planet, it is serious zoology.

Bigfeet live in the Cascade and Coastal mountains of Washington, Oregon and California. Why are they searching in Kentucky?

go to www.bfro.com
you will be amazed how wide spread the stories are.
I am somewhat skeptical as to their existence and my only comment is, it would be “so cool!”!

They also searched in New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia in addition in Alaska, Washington and California.

This show is such a fine demonstration of the progressive scientific method. Assume bigfoot exists until proven that it doesn’t.

I flew with a pilot years ago who saw a bigfoot when he was a little boy. It happened near Greensboro, NC on a farm. He said it was a huge, hulking upright walking creature who was covered in dark brown hair. He and his father hunted and he had been upclose and personal with bears so he was able to tell this was no bear. The creature walked across the farmland and just kept going. He said there was a horrific stench that he can remember to this day. He was a ways away from this creature but the smell hit him from that distance. He was still shaken just talking about it.

It would be be nice if someone could scientifically prove or disprove the existence of Bigfoot, the BFRO just doesn’t cut it for me.

They claim to know it exists, but have yet to show any definitive evidence to prove their case.

I have been into Bigfoot since I was a kid and my logic adult mind I say no way such a thing could exist, yet a part says anything is possible.

Why Kentucky? One can easily spot two of them wandering around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue when not otherwise globetrotting on vacation...

Check 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I hear it likes boob belts and dredging out as much from the public trough as humanly possible.

Even with quite rare animals, such as the Florida panther, one eventually gets hit be a car, or a carcass is found. This hasn’t happened with Bigfoot. If there are any Bigfoots, they aren’t in reasonably populated or traveled areas. There is no such thing as Bigfoot. Sorry.

Disclaimer: I am as big a fan of cryptozoology as anyone, and a big fan of Bernard Heuvelmanns. (On the Track of Unknown Animals is one of the most interesting books ever written.) I’m not saying that there aren’t some unusual things still out there someone, but simply that Bigfoot—at least in the lower 48 states—just isn’t one of them.

Living in Oregon my entire life and knowing thousands who have hunted and logged the woods yet never heard of anybody seeing one, it is a hoax. Perhaps they should try Central Park, you know there have been sightings there?

I don't watch much TV but my son was here last week and we watched "Turtleman- Pawn Stars - and several Bigfoot shows.

The Bigfoot show itself is a traveling hoax that just moves around from one part of the country to another. There is a certain fascination to it because you can see otherwise rational people telling some incredible stories.

If a big foot existed it would have been shot by a hunter, tracked down by dogs, killed by a grizzly bear, hit by a vehicle, died in the forest from natural causes or an accident,or got dementia and wandered into a town. So far, no body. And there won't be one.

My kids and I watch this show. It's hysterical.

I can't figure out if they're all just goofing around or if they really believe the crap they spout.

"Look, these trees are broken at just the height a bigfoot would break them at."

All very scientificky. Now I have to buy my kids "Gone Squatchin'" hats.

Hmmm, after all these years; no carcass, no bones, no nothing. Well, I guess I shouldn't say nothing; we have loads of those stupid foot plaster casts, anecdotal stories up the wazoo, and conveniently shaky video footage.

This is beyond being a joke.

I’ve never seen a Bigfoot...but I’ve been out camping a lot and have heard some very strange noises...so I’m pretty sure they exist.

Somewhere on the Internet I found a map of all reported Bigfoot sightings. One that interested me was nearby Washington D.C., so I clicked on the little flag to learn the story. It seems that sometime in the ‘60s a guard reported that Bigfoot approached one of the back gates to the Quantico Marine Base out of the Prince William Forrest. While that forrest is big enough to hide many things, I was more interested in what would possess a Marine guard to report seeing Bigfoot even if one did walk up to his gate, and, of course, what happened to him (not Bigfoot) afterward.

I’m going with the latter. They admit to finding no evidence, but the know they are in Kentucky, specifically the Daniel Boon National Forrest.

I don't equate this show with true scientific interest in the phenomenon.

It is like stating global warming caused by mankind is a fact because everyone believes it is.

I am careful to point out to my kids that all of these people are actors and are only on tv to sell the sponsors products.

50/50 on wether Bigfoot is real.

When I was a kid in the mid 50's there was an area of Chacahoula swamp we kids avoided like the plague.
Farm workers wouldn't work the adjacent fields without being armed.
What was seen every now and then by them was the complete Bigfoot description.
Nobody down here had heard of Bigfoot or Sasquatch or what ever back then.

Makes me wonder just remembering back.

My grandfather (1899-1975) was a rancher in central-west Texas. There was a lot of Bigfoot talk in the mid-60’s. One day I asked him if he had ever heard of such a thing. In his usual matter-of-fact way he said (paraphrasing): “I haven’t seen anything like that in about 30 years. We called them Skunk Apes. They were hard to see, you would just barely catch sight of them running down a gulley or over a rise. But you could smell them for a long way, and the stink was something awful.”

That was the end of the conversation and I never asked about it again.

I think Matt Moneymaker could find evidence of Bigfoot in Times Square. I’ve talked to him once. He was trying to talk me into joining a Washington expedition, for the cost of $600, and so they could use my 12X20 tent. Said something about how he could almost guarantee an encounter if we struck out with his BFRO team. That’s where I told him in so much words to get lost. Guarantee an encounter? If it was that easy Bigfoot would have been found long ago. I have been hunting in Western Washington for most of my 50 years, and I could not guarantee you an encounter with a black tail deer, much less a Bigfoot. And how many more deer are there than Bigfeet?

The show is pretty much a joke among those who post on Bigfoot Forums. They are aware of Moneymaker’s shinanigans and over boated ego. And they are aware that you can spends days and days in the hottest BF spots in WA or OR, and come away with nothing. Yet bring an Animal Planet camera crew with you and bam, you have encounters the very first night.

I’m very offended by this thread. I am a bigfoot born and raised in Kentucky before I decided to leave the family tree and try to make it big in Hollywood. (You like Star Wars, right? Can we say CHEWBACCA!?) You guys are really racist towards my people, calling us stinky, calling us Nephilym, suggesting that we don’t even exist. Listen, just how many of you have ever starred in a movie or been married to America’s first black President?

Our accomplishments as a race should not be underestimated. We deserve respect.

I’ll get back to you. We haven’t seen it yet. We just watched the VA 1 yesterday.
