On the dangers of paying for BF expeditions that have no legal permits

5 posts in this topic

Steve Kulls provides an illuminating summary of his investigation into an aspect of the bigfoot research community (the ugly side).

 

In this blog (see link below), he summarizes his investigation into claims made by Bob Garrett about BF sound recordings supposedly made in the Big Thicket NP (Texas) and the reasons why his expedition of paying customers was told to vacate Federal Forest lands.

 

Of note, is the ~$4,200 fine and expulsion from the National Forest that Garrett's group got for operating a commercial business without a permit.

 

Some of these paying customers never got their money back when the future expeditions were cancelled - according to Skulls investigation.

Not sure if BFRO gets permits for all their expeditions into National Forest lands; something to ponder.

I would imagine that this would only effect commercial ventures,  not those that are purely research oriented.   We have never had an issue on any of our forays. Those that we had film crews on were permitted,  but we were never asked for any documentation.

Thanks for the link Norse! Looks like there could be all  sorts of  different reasons they might deny such permits to a "Bigfoot tour group" in accord with that list. 

Explorer- great article you linked there, and in conjunction with that which Norse posted it would be a simple jump to conclude that Garrett May well have set up the whole thing making money with whatever result came. That is running his tours as long as he could, but knowing that he had no permits used that as the cause of his "victimization" that prevents refunding any cash. With s approach of the BF's dark nature, that should have made permitting impossible from the get go....right?

If people are paying you money to be on national forest?

 

You need a permit.
