Analysis of the Patterson-Gimlin Film by Bill Munns - Bill is a specialized makeup artist who does prosthetic and special effects makeup, including creature body suits. He has 45 years of experience and is an authority in the field.
Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
I have done nearly all of my field work solo. I would never do it at night solo. . My methodology was find an active area from encounter reports, start hiking the area looking for footprints to confirm it active, and wait for BF to start interacting. If older juveniles are in the area they will start to mess with you. Adults seem to have sense enough to avoid humans at all possible. My first direct encounter was accidental. The ones I encountered were moving through and had no idea I was there. Because their night vision is apparently so much better than ours, day time field work at least levels the playing field as far as who can see who. You could step on ones toes in the dark and never know they were there. You do have a good point. It there are aggressive and dangerous BF in an area, I would avoid it solo. There is one area in Washington State where the BF there are pretty nasty and have been known to intimidate humans. Who knows, it might have been shot or shot at and has a great hate for humans.
I would agree that crazies like the mindspeak folks don’t have and discourage guns, and big game hunters do have guns. I will also agree that big game hunters have 100% failed to bring home a carcass, however, there are numerous reports of people with guns shooting sasquatches to various resukts, including dead sasquatches that almost universally get left where they drop for various reasons. There are many reports of people shooting in the general direction of sasquatches and successfully convincing said sasquatches to leave. And there are numerous reports like William Roe and Bob Gimlin who saw sasquatches while a rifle was in their hands and who never even brought their rifle to bear. They were just smart enough to have one.
As a crazy, I believe what Catmandoo writes. In fact, I’ve been interested in the fact that several renowned sasquatch hunters (and former BFF 1.0 participants) have gone fully underground. I wonder if they have “made contact” and are now doing the Fossey/Goodall thing.
Finally, as a crazy, I am developing plans to spend some time in a public lands area famous for sasquatch sightings, I will be armed, and I will possess a valid state hunting license with wild pig tags (pig is open year round, so nobody can try the bullshit of disarming me). At the outset, I have no intention of shooting either a pig or sasquatch, but all can be assured that the guns will be there.
The biggest pro kill proponent self admittedly has vertigo and is not in the field. When he was, he was not launching Bigfoot specific expeditions with the sole purpose of killing one.
And I don't say that to be critical as he is one of my favorite posters.
