As shows on Bigfoot have grown in popularity, common sense seems to have lessened in proportion. Here are some Do’s and Don’ts that should be considered on investigations.

DON’T have a town meeting before investigating. A town meeting is a good way to gather eyewitness reports, HOWEVER, this announces your presence in the area and gives hoaxers plenty of time to set up in wooded areas discussed at the public meeting. With this in mind any evidence of calls, knocks, rock throwing, heat signatures, twisted branches or other human capable evidence HAS to be thrown out. Unless of course a bigfoot is actually FILMED doing the act. If a team wants to hold a town meeting, the result should be to find new locations to search, or to confirm other stories. There are a plethora of stories out there, sneak into town quietly and do a night or two of research in reported areas BEFORE announcing your presence. Yes, there can still be hoaxers out in the woods, but at least the chance of contamination can be lessened.

DON’T assume calls and knocks are Bigfoot. Unfortunately, bigfoot calls can and do sound like other animals found in the areas of investigations. A high pitched cry can be a coyote. A low grunt can be a bear or wolverine. Knocks could be two trees smacking together in the wind. Of course, any of these sounds could also be pranksters messing with you. Nothing throws me into fits faster than when a researchers hollers into the woods, they hear a call back, and instantly they say, “There’s a Squatch in these woods.” How the heck do they know it’s a Squatch? Fire Truck sirens can set off dogs howling. It could just be another animal responding to the noise. Record the evidence, and then get it analyzed by a professional in the animal calls for the area being researched.

DO look up. I watched an episode recently where several eyewitnesses mentioned that the Bigfoot was able to jump high and in fact had been seen high up in trees. Yet, not once did the investigation show the “scientists” looking up into the trees with their own eyes, night vision, or thermal cameras.

DO believe in the fact that Bigfoot is a high intelligent species. Whether Bigfoot is related more to humans, or to apes, the fact remains that they would be highly intelligent. Researchers are counting on the fact that Bigfoot has a complicated vocal system of calls and knocking to communicate across great distances. Do they really think a Bigfoot is going to hear them stumbling and crashing through the woods and simply continue to walk nonchalantly in front of their camera lens? This intelligent creature is probably well practiced in hiding and being discreet. Many of the eyewitness reports state that they often were hiding behind trees, etc. Think like they would, and figure out what would be a great hiding place, or where would they go if someone came crashing through this trail. Be a step ahead, and maybe you can catch sight of them.
