Yeah, I just think we'd need 100's of these traps about known bf habitats.

They'd need careful even sophisticated monitoring, maintained, and hopefully away from heavy human traffic (tourists, hikers).

And make it attractive for them. If some think they know what attracts them, but won't attract another animal (no foodstuffs)...

But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

True. Not really sure what bigfoots would be into, but that rape cabin/lobster cage doesn't really look all that inviting.

Hey, just 'cause fireworks worked for me, don't mean it will for others!
I like to think I'm special, Sakari.

I know I'm speculating on speculation. But on a more serious note, this is what I feel may be the best "option"... bangs and booms, notwithstanding.
But Mr. Big does seem to pick up on and avoid human anything. As well as at the same time being curious of  humans and their stuff.

Maybe a trap out of natural materials that sits out in the elements long enough to loose human scent.
Hey! It's a slow Saturday or is it Friday? Let me have my fun... :wacko:


Anyway, a  trap just makes more "sense" to me.
And i'm not referencing how it may have been done, but something involving a little more thought/creativity/science.

Tell me you can picture it too! :tu: :lol:

I know what you mean.

Lets attempt this.....BFRO ( you watch that show :)   ) has had several locations with " high " activity. Why not pick out the 3 top places, all research groups get together and put in a actual plan to get evidence at these three locations for a month/quarter/or year.

Stay there, in shifts if need be. Pool all resources together. Maybe each place for 3 months. Find proper catching procedures. I see all sorts of animals captured live, so traps and such are available.

Concentrate on these hot areas for more then one night, and have proper equipment in place.


Now of course, this is if Bigfoot were real. But, even so, there are enough people that think so, and should be able to get together. That is what is different with these people, and real; Biologists. Real Biologists work together for a common goal.....As for Bif, everyone wants to be a hero, and get the attention. ( ok, most )

Bingo! Your are dead on. There is definitely more infighting and entertainment and power struggles and shenanigans going on than any actual serious thought or cooperation.

P.S. Even leaving the Clueless Crew out, there are lots of hindering troubles in Bigfootland. In my opinion.

Bigfootland is a good name for a theme park, in fact I am amazed no one has thought to try and cash in on that idea. Although, I'm guessing none of the rides would be real. P

The photoshopped image in the OP is so bad it's not even funny.  Apart from the fact that the bigfoot face looking through the gap in the trap wall looks really fake, here's a composite I did in photoshop to compare various pics of the "bigfoot trap".

Posted Image

The gap that "bigfoot" is looking through  only appears in the pic that supposedly shows him.  In all other pics, it's just a plank of wood as part of the trap.

Note also that the OP photo has none of the graffiti that shows up in later pics, indicating that this is probably an old photo of the trap that has been photoshopped.

The picture with the trapped "bigfoot" also appears to show a different trap mechanism that the other pics, which show a single cage door raised up that looks designed to fall down, locking the beast within (why else would the door be raised up above the height of the roof of the trap?), but the photoshop with the trapped bigfoot appears to have a lower cage door crudely photoshopped onto the pic in an attempt to make it look like the door was closed, but photoshopping out the upper cage was probably too much effort or too difficult.


Fail.

The photo they used is not supposed to be a real photo at all. Whomever used that photo should have pointed it out. I assure you that photo is not claimed to be of the daisy in the box....

Now, the rest of their claims, yes, they say they are true...... :no:

Yes, I picture a prettier Daisy than the OP...and much younger than Patty... on a bicycle built for 500 lbs. two

Official Statement of Steve Kulls

By now some you have read the statement by DW Lee of the MABRC that he was asked by Ed Smith, on behalf of Team Quantra to establish a “Bridging Group.”
Several days ago, I was asked by DW Lee, much to my surprise, if I would participate in a meeting with Team Quantra, and the possibility of being able to observe their “live specimen.”
I was particularly impressed with the named researchers, as they represent all a fair representation geographically of the United States and a couple of them being scientists.
The Independent part of the Bridging Group consists of:
  • Dr Jeff Meldrum
  • Kathy Strain
  • Melissa Hovey
  • Abe Del Rio
  • Steve Kulls
The MABRC part of the Bridging Team is as follows:
  • D.W. Lee
  • Randy Harrington
  • Jim Whitehead
  • Rob Gaudet
  • Doug Todd
