Many bigfoot researchers are leery of giving interviews to the press. The main emphasis should be about theÂ undocumented upright walking North American primate notÂ about the researchers.
My eldest son is a pastor of a church in Columbia, Missouri.Â He contacted my wife early in February about allowing aÂ couple of University of Missouri students to spend the night.Â They were traveling to Bowling Green, Ohio for a churchÂ conference and we were conveniently located halfway betweenÂ Ohio and Missouri. As an aside, he also mentioned thatÂ Peggy was interested in interviewing me about my bigfootÂ research for a class project. I reluctantly agreed, notÂ thinking much about it.
I was a little surprised when they arrived and she set up aÂ video-camera. She did an impromptu interview as I showedÂ her some of my footcasts and recording equipment. I tookÂ them out sound-blasting later in the evening and did hearÂ and record some distant howls.
Two months later my son again contacted me and asked if IÂ would allow her to tag along in my research area to see whatÂ I do when I am looking for bigfoot evidence. I again agreedÂ and met Peggy, a school friend of Peggy’s, and my son andÂ his wife at the park.
We spent about an hour and a half walking through someÂ areas where I have found footprints and recorded severalÂ vocalizations. I did ask if I could have a copy of the DVDÂ when she finished. She said of course.
Saturday I received my copy of the DVD. I was a little takenÂ aback and disappointed that the focus of the shortÂ documentary was on the sincerity and saneness of me as aÂ researcher and not on the true subject which is bigfoot /Â sasquatch.
