Here are some thoughts. Document your encounter. Collect Evidence During and immediately after the encounter is the time to collect evidence. So, what types of evidence should you be thinking about? Photos and Video: In a day and age where just about everyone has a Smartphone with photo and video capability, it is astonishing that more Bigfoot encounters aren't backed up by visual proof.
We can assume the shock of the encounter makes people a bit slow on the draw, but then again nobody seems to hesitate when it come to catching their friends doing outlandish and idiotic things. If you can muster the wherewithal to grab your phone and snap some pictures or video during your sighting, it may end up being the proof necessary to show Bigfoot really exists. Hair Samples: Immediately following a Bigfoot sighting, and only if it is safe to do so, examine the area where the creature was spotted.
Look for hair on twigs and branches, or man-made objects like barbed-wire fences. When collecting a hair sample, try not to touch it. Then, store it in a dry place in a small paper bag. While not fool-proof, this lessens the chance of cross-contamination if researchers attempt to do a DNA analysis.
Footprints: Did Bigfoot leave some footprints behind? Or, perhaps you've found some interesting footprints even though you didn't see the creature who left them. At the very least take some photos of the prints with an easily verifiable item next to them for reference. Use a pen, a soda can, or anything else that's easily measurable. Better yet, take some time to cast the prints. For the average person, mixing up some plaster, filling the print, waiting for it to cure and carefully lifting it out may be more effort than you're able or willing to put in.
But, if you can do it, this evidence is very helpful for Bigfoot researchers. Bigfoot Scat: Unless you catch Bigfoot in a very embarrassing situation it is not likely that you'll find scat directly related to your sightings. However, you may stumble over something that doesn't look quite right while out in the woods, which you don't think would come from any animal in the area. If you're brave enough to collect it, follow the same procedure as when collecting a hair sample.
Sounds and Calls : If you are hearing strange sounds at night, and you have reason to think Sasquatch could be the culprit, do what you can to get a recording of the vocals. A digital audio recorder would make it easiest for researchers to examine the sounds using computer software, but use whatever you have.
Audio evidence attributed to Bigfoot is as important as anything else, and can help researchers to understand how the creatures communicate. Do not shoot at Bigfoot! Write a Witness Statement Along with collecting evidence, the most important thing you can do after a Bigfoot encounter is write a witness statement. Here are 12 questions to answer, but include every detail you can: On what date did the encounter occur?
Where did the encounter take place, exactly? What were the surroundings like? What was the weather like? What were you doing when you had your encounter? What was Bigfoot doing? What did Bigfoot look like? Include facial details, color of fur, approximate height and anything else that stood out to you. If Bigfoot saw you, how did he react?

Poo on the writer here. Writing is easy, go in the field, learn. Standing got his evidence because he fooled them. Great article. Irrational people are those that deny things based on social norms versus investigation and verification.
Some call themselves scientists and have many accolades, are college grads with many accomplishments. However, they are in a cocoon of self sustaining belief based on what has already been done or accepted. Therefore they are quite unable to make a rational application on something outside of the mainstream or area of study. It is about keeping faith with your colleagues. If you want to get information on things that are not understood you must look with a critical well balanced investigation.
Excellent exchanges. Ask yourself why native tribes across the country have over names for this creature. Go hang out with Thomas Sewid on the north end of Vancouver Island. Do some actual research. Wait a minute!
Now You See Him, Now You Don't: The Bigfoot Stories (Unabridged)
Let me get this straight. Fifty plus years and all they have to show for it is a video and some plaster casts that were faked. All the evidence that was collected and sent for DNA analysis turned up to be from common animals. Krantz placed so much validity on were most likely created by a known hoaxer who lived in the area at the time. They have a hell of a lot more than specimens. The indisputable fact is that Bigfoot does not fit the food chain. When you think of its size and the requirements it would need to satisfy its daily food intake, there would have to be evidence of the creature in terms of its effect on the environment.
No large hominid bipedal creature could possibly escape all of those methods we have, of modern detection. Ah yep. When you are standing 25 feet from a creature with a direct line of sight, there is no missing what it is. What I really thought was it had a hairy butt and I saw it, Sasquatch October 21 , on a camping trip in the middle of the night, getting up to go to the bathroom, with flashlight in hand, BEFORE the Patterson film and I did not know what I was looking at. News came late to our small town. It was March before our small newspaper printed the story.
So what did I see? I did not know at the time, but I found out when the story reached our town. It was not a dream, not a bear. I was traumatized to the point where I know I was in shock for the next few days, based on what people who was on the trip remember as my behavior the rest of the trip. I am not a liar, nor mistaken, nor an attention seeker. I did not tell my story for 52 years, because my life would have been a living hell in a small town where your reputation is everything.
We already know that the Patterson film is an admitted hoax, a total fake photo of a man in a hair suit. The mind boggles at the gullibility of some people. The big problem with it is that some folks in certain areas, like the redwood forests, have made Bigfoot into a kind of a cottage industry, where they operate tourist sites and actually make a living from this. Until we stop using the planet as a resource instead of the source of life, we will have differences of opinion about what and who lives here.
I do not wish to argue what I know, because in fact that person is calling me a liar. Excellent comment. Tok the words right out of my mouth. Are we really supposed to believe that Native Americans and Europeans have for the past who-knows-how-many years consistently been hoodwinked by some group of large mean who like to emerge from the forest now and then in ape suits? Took the words right out of my mouth.
Are we really supposed to believe that Native Americans and Europeans have for the past who-knows-how-many years consistently been hoodwinked by some group of large men who like to emerge from the forest now and then in ape suits? Can you point to where either of those two admitted it was faked? Thank you Harry. Those that have never seen the creature go based on that information and on faith. Belief that they creature does exist. Like most people in the world have a God that they have never seen nor touched but have felt and is aware that he is there. Yet we have Scientists all over the world that believe in a higher power.
Could these missing people have come upon portals to other dimensions? Some think that's a possibility, too. Paulides has his detractors, of course. Skeptics like Kyle Polich have worked to debunk his claims, saying the statistics show that all of these cases have perfectly reasonable explanations. Polich is right; people can die in the wilderness without help from the supernatural.
