Someone asked me for my opinion on this one. Well...--- and here is the original https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SxhZ...
The Piper Footage of a Yowie
JMT:So I tried out the using chocolate as a bait twice recently. On the second go around, I put it right next to the camera in the hopes a Bigfoot's hunger would outweigh its better judgement and it would come right up to a non-camouflaged camera. Whether this would ever happen, I don't know. But chocolate has quickly proven to be great bait! UPDATE: I had this camera stolen. It might go without saying, but be very careful where you place them.
Any advice or suggestions for Bigfoot bait for folks like me that set up trail cameras?
Yes, if you set your camera up in the woods, set it up in a spot where you are confident people will not steal it. As for bait, I highly recommend APPLES, which will bring in deer (sometimes) and as we have often speculated, where there are deer, there are Bigfoot. Duct tape is going to work best, wrapped around a tree with the sticky side out. And then, take a Hershey bar (about a dollar) and stick it to the duct tape. If the weather is cold, there should be no reason it would melt. That might get a hair sample. I have never had any success, but I have never won the lotto as well, but I KNOW FOR A FACT that others have, so keep that in mind.
Excerpt from the Animal Planet Book Finding Bigfoot
Several Hollywood insiders, including "An American Werewolf in London" director John Landis, have claimed that the film shows a man dressed in an ape suit. According to Landis, the suit was designed by John Chambers, the special-effects master who created the costumes for the original "Planet of the Apes" movies. Chambers denies any involvement, but the rumor persists.Your response?

Most fakes are made by people using wooden plates carved to the size and shape of a Sasquatch footprint...
A more sophisticated method of faking Bigfoot tracks emerged in the later 1980s. A number of tracks and footprints began to be found... They had been made by a soft foot-like object, but while they showed dynamic interaction between the foot and ground they did not show the foot or the toes moving or flexing in any way...
The original footprints were borrowed from The International Society of Cryptozoology.
"These tracks were collected in 1982 by Deputy Dennis Heryford of the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Department in Washington State. These tracks are regarded as some of the best Bigfoot casts every made due to the credibility of the officer involved, the specific 'mushrooming' of the toes (difficult to hoax), and the texture/bulging features shown in the tracks, demonstrating that these were made with live feet (not wooden fakes).”
|One of the Silver Star Photos|
In my view, after spending an entire day with Randee Chase and going to the sighting location, there is no hint this was a hoax. Mr. Chase is a very credible eyewitness and not the type of person to be playing a practical joke in my view. It was obvious by having Randee Chase stand where he photographed Bigfoot, there could be no mistaking this for a man in a heavy black jacket... As a Bigfoot researcher for the past quarter century, I think Randee may have snapped pictures of Bigfoot.Did you take any comparison photographs to demonstrate that there was "no mistaking this for a man in a heavy black jacket?" How did Chase compare to it in size and height? Could you clearly make out clothes when you had him stand in the exact location of the original photos? On Finding Bigfoot they noted evident clothing in the Bobo experiment. Also observed in the original photos was a lack of a pronounced neck as revealed by Bobo and what seemed to be a sagittal crest. Your observations?

obvious what clothing looks likes compared to the unknown subject. |
This was in 2009 but when Randee and I were there the snowpack was gone, so it wasn't apples to apples and trying to get him in the right place was difficult if not impossible. Randee did not look anything like the subject. He was plain as day, where you could see all the clothing, no mistaking it, even if we were off five or ten feet. It was even difficult to find the location of where Randee stood, and again, we were within feet but did not have an exact spot. It is a lot harder than it appears, to find an EXACT spot both for the camera man and the subject.
Whatever Randee took pictures of certainly looked apelike in the face, but too far away to get any detail. Even his digital camera, which he still owned in 2009, was ancient by the standards of the day and he, like me, has very limited knowledge of things like the internet, digital cameras, etc., so I find it very hard to imagine that he was able to fabricate anything.
What is interesting about this case is when he went for this hike, it was freezing cold and he was by himself, but that is perfectly in character with Randee, to go no matter what the condition. So whatever was up there on Silver Star Mountain with him was wearing one solid color from head to toe or at least to where you can see no more of the legs because of the snow.
I think the Silver Star Mountain case is one of the best ever. Solid witness and his pictures and there appears to be no manipulation of any of the camera data and some of that was covered in the pages of the Bigfoot Times. See Bigfoot Times: Chase, Randee Edward, Dec. 2005, p. 3; Jan. 2006, p. 2; Sept. 2006, p. 4; June 2009, (photo) p. 1-4; July 2009, p. 3, (photo) 4; June 2010, p. 4; Mar. 2011, p. 2
Primate Anatomist Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University (shown below) directed the final cleaning of the cast. The remaining mud was removed in a careful, painstaking manner. Hairs of various animals, including one unidentified primate, were extracted from this final layer of mud.
The following year his team returned to the Himilayas and recovered a hair sample that was DNA tested as being from a primate, but was excluded as being human."
On April 21, 2008, Josh Gates traveled to Walt Disney World in Florida to meet with Joe Rohde, Executive Designer of Walt Disney Imagineering. Gates presented Rohde with a cast of the "Yeti" footprint. The cast will soon be placed on display at Expedition Everest, a Himalayan-themed, high-speed, coaster-like attraction where guests come face-to-face with a Yeti.
A blog reader named Simone comments:
Thought you might be interested because they are saying that if the result stands, it means these humans were a new unidentified breed that would not have been able to breed with our kind...if this makes it to published journals there is an opening for people to think, well if there is.. this unknown hybrid... then maybe others also..
