  1. Byrne got $5,000,000 in 1993 Who knows of more funding?
  2. In response to MIB's question: 1) Charles Darwin is one example of a naturalist. nat·u·ral·ist (năch′ər-ə-lĭst, năch′rə-) n. 1. One versed in natural history, especially in zoology or botany. 2. One who believes in and follows the tenets of naturalism. 2) I cite the Cascades Carnivore Project as an example of naturalists doing in depth studies in an alledgedly squatch rich environment In response to MIB's question: 1) Charles Darwin is one example of a naturalist. Steve Irwin is another example. nat·u·ral·ist (năch′ər-ə-lĭst, năch′rə-) n. 1. One versed in natural history, especially in zoology or botany. 2. One who believes in and follows the tenets of naturalism. Here is a link to the NW Naturalist Journal. http://www.bioone.org/loi/nwnt 2) I cite the Cascades Carnivore Project as an example of naturalists doing in depth studies in an alledgedly squatch rich environment .
  3. The woods are full of naturalists that study the very areas that supposedly have bigfoot populations. Any one of them would love to document a new species of insect..... A 9ft 1000lbs North American squatch would be second only to the discovery of the Galapogos Islands.
  4. The Erickson Project was exposed when the photo of Matilda, that claimed to show a clear picture of bigfoot, was shown to be nothing more that a Chewbacca mask. Claims are that Erickson was duped by footers for some $600,000. I believe Moneymaker is on record as holding up Matilda as genuine and the picture that lead to his claims of bigfoot having a dog type nose. I believe that the project Bodhi referenced was the ill fated Falcon Project which was championed by Dr. Meldrum.
  5. Looks like a cameraman who knew he was in danger of being caught on film.
  6. If I am not mistaken there was a Ronnie Smith that posted here a long long time ago on BFF 1.
  7. ^ Where can I find the documentation of the "Khwit" skull that is not on a crypto website? Thanks in advance.
  8. What are helicopters and cameras going to give us that we dont already have!!!!?? Crazy. Thanks for sharing. I had no idea that sort of money was being thrown around. But aviation is expensive. Rapid response for one. Urgency is one thing footers don't seem to be interested in. If Peter Byrne and his backers had urgency? They would have been pro - kill. So you race out there with a helo and take a top down PGF video with prop wash blowing dust and tree tops around? And then present it to science with a cherry on top? Sure The outcome is predictable. It doesnt matter how fast you respond......if your not commited to collected physical evidence? Epic Fail. Another failure in a long list for sure. Hopefully someone will get it right during my lifetime.

  10. Interesting also that Franzoni created at least 1 published paper regarding the search. To scoff at his work is to shows incredible naivety.
  11. http://www.bigfootencounters.com/interviews/franzoni.htm $5,000,000 grant to Byrne in 1993. Slick was long gone.
  12. University grant for bigfoot. Nothing, zero, ziltch. Footers try to argue whether it was used effectively but it can't be argued that serious $$ were granted and spent. Henri Franzoni became a para-squatcher due to the fact that they looked so hard and found nothing. He put heaps of faith in Indian lore.
  13. ^ Byrne got millions of financing.
  14. Peter Byrne got $5 million to search for bigfoot.
  15. 1) How much time and money? What do you think the return on investment would be in total $$ for discovery? Time shouldn't be much of a problem with the activity some groups claim to experience. 2) I often wonder if there aren't other motives besides jealousy and greed? By watching and listening we can learn a lot about human nature. You can also learn from reading boards and watching videos as well. I suspect that the most obvious reasons for not sharing info isn't greed and jealousy. 3) Who are these well funded shadow groups that don't share? Thanks
  16. Maybe habitat preservation is the only component of bigfoot hunting that's tax deductible?
  17. A pro-kill or no-kill viewpoint doesn't change the facts. Did NAWAC shoot someone's car? Were shots fire in the general direction of civilians?
  18. How the heck would anyone know if the guns are even loaded. They have been trying to kill one for 20 years with no luck.... and now somehow cameras and a film crew going to help? I'm all about shooting one of these things but to even think for one minute this show is anything other than tabloid entertainment right beside the Kardashian's and Ghost Hunter's is an incredible stretch.
  19. ^^ Thanks Yuchi1. Your experience is similar to what I have heard from others. ^ He said he was there first hand on more than one occasion.
  20. Lansdale has moved firmly into the blobsquatch camp and seems to enjoy looking thru pictures after the fact for bigfoot. He used to deride people for doing the very thing he is so focused on now. The longer bigfoot goes undocumented to lower the bar for evidence drops it would seem.Pro-kill or No-Kill.... not much different as far as results go. Yuchi1, I have always wondered about the get togethers in "Monster Central". Care to elaborate any more?
  21. Heaps of contact but no real evidence.
  22. Is bigfoot a creation of the Harrison Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce? http://furtradefamilyhistory.blogspot.com/2011/01/sasquatch-story.html This article was written by a historian not a footer of any fashion. Excerpt below: "Green's July 1, 1957 editorial complained that "Most of our readers will have noticed by this time that the Harrison Sasquatch Expedition (under Rene Dahinden) appears to exist only in the newspapers." The problem, Green explained, was that no one outside Harrison Hot Springs had contributed money to the fund, and if local business people wanted the publicity that this expedition would bring to their area, they would have to pay for it themselves. Finally, Harrison Hot Springs Council convinced itself of the marketing potential of the Sasquatch, and contributed $1,000 towards the Expedition's supposed expenses -- money which probably went toward erecting a welcome sign graced by an enormous neon Sasquatch on the outskirts of Harrison Hot Springs. Just as tourist season kicked off, Green reprinted an old story about a humming Sasquatch that attempted to hypnotize a local woman. He followed that story up with others, and the stories were more unbelievable every week. But other newspapers picked up the stories and the tourists flooded into Harrison Lake Hotsprings."
  23. They lost their bid to revoke his tenure correct, but I would disagree that it had no impact.If most of academia thinks this subject is ridiculous? As skeptics argue? Why would it be surprising to find bias or negativity against the few scientist who are proponents? The article clearly says there has been no request for review filed to revoke his tenure only grumblings from othe staff who are embarassed every time they see Idaho State University mentioned on a bigfoot show. The way I read it the process was never even started.Did I miss something?
