'Expedition Bigfoot' set to track down Sasquatch

A new TV series will follow a team of Bigfoot hunters as they attempt to find evidence of the creature's existence.
Bigfoot hunting shows have been a dime a dozen over the last few years, however despite the number of film crews out there looking for evidence of a large bipedal hominid in the forests of North America, so far nobody has actually managed to find anything conclusive.

Expedition Bigfoot, which will premiere tonight (Dec 8th) at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Travel Channel, is aiming to change all that by using state-of-the-art equipment and powerful data algorithms to calculate exactly when and where these elusive creatures are most likely to be seen.

The first episode will focus on a 90,000-acre 'hot zone' around Ochoco National Forest in Central Oregon - a state where there have traditionally been a large number of sightings.
The team will consist of actor and producer Bryce Johnson, veteran primatologist Mireya Mayor and Bigfoot researchers Ronny LeBlanc and Russell Acord.

Whether they will actually find any definitive evidence of the creature however remains to be seen.

You can check out an interview with Mayor and LeBlanc below.

Lol. Can't help but notice that all of this self proclaimed "expertise" has led him to exactly 0 bigfoots so far. If you think that's expertise, go for it. The tracks he bases his pseudo scientific argument on (Anthropoides ameriborealis) are tracks that he has never seen in person. He just knows they're real. He's that good. It would also be fair enough to proclaim P.T. Barnum the world's leading authority on mermaids in his day. He still claims the Wallace fakes are real bigfoot tracks, despite them being consistent with the stompers to the extent of clearly displaying an artifact from a cra... [More]

His pumping up of Todd Standings nonsense had him on the outer with many bigfooters for a while. It seems that even they have at least some standards lol. Yet, undaunted, the da Vinci of modern anthropology continues his quest (to write paperbacks, and attend conventions for tidy sums...basically anything that doesn't involve finding a real bigfoot).

While meldrum is way too big a walking pile of ego driven fertilizer for me to have any sympathy for him and his epic fails i do grasp the corner hes allowed that ego to paint him into. After a few decades of pounding ones chest that something can only be their way no other way yet they have offered zero in the way or proof a person like him cannot hide from the fact they know its time to ante up, produce or shut the f up, hes always edgy and looks cross in any pictures or videos. BF being real has consumed the mans life he lives "BF" its got to be an unimaginable struggle for him to know hes ... [More]

It's a shame believers accept so easily rather than being discerning and calling out his bs. It doesn't help their cause, then again, it seems a form of make believe anyway. People can make what they will of his motivation. It's probably best not to make it too personal, though his claims are another thing. When you proclaim publicly that bigfoot exists (which he obviously does) and profit off it, you invite critique and relevant criticisms. It doesn't have to be by relevant scientists either, while ever he avoids mainstream science with his preference for publishing his work in paperbacks. Th... [More]

On prints or casts, Meldrum was one who fell for the ivan marx fakes as did krantz, j Green evidently knew they were fakes yet allowed countless books and docs to use them as examples of real BF prints. Then chillcutt pops up making claims of finding unique dermal ridges on some tracks ( like 3 tracks ) and says to the effect that meldrum who is an alleged expert in bipedial locomotion told him dermal rideges meant nothing to him, ouch. Chillcutt based he rep that with his expertise his findings proved beyond question BF is real. Hah, not so fast, one anthropologist stepped up and made prints/... [More]

I understand and sure just my not so humble opinion meldrum is driven by ego and money but i am very open to be proven wrong, he could prove its not ego by coming here and giving answers not ad hominem to all questions asked and he could prove its not about money by donating all procedes from things related to BF to a charity. No, motivations are not the most important thing,  showing evidence and proof of ones claims is very important, to me anyway.

In other news… China found a dragon man skull that is 150000-300000years old. Wait a minute?! Did I read in this thread that no Bigfoot bones have ever been found??? Don’t believe it.

I'm still waiting for the explanation to the problem with maintaining a sustainable breeding population with no evidence of it existing. A 7-8 foot tall primate has been allegedly in existence for at least decades (as described). This creature has been allegedly been sighted from the upper Pacific Northwest to the swamps of Florida. Yet no observable population or effects on the environments they occupy. This is despite numerous groups and individuals actively seeking it and countless passive detection systems that would had to have recorded something. Very convenient.

Krantz once suggested 2k BF out there Bindernagel suggested krantz opinion was way low, Ive heard about this breeding pop hurdle for years but when Tina was in the store the other day i was in the car just thinking and in the last several decades the areas claimed to have lots of BF have had natural disasters which forced many critters some injured out into the open. Bears, big cats, deers, moose, countless smaller creatures seeking to survive but never a bigfoot this fact is very odd. And yes trail cams i bet there are 1000s out in the woods and they get pictures of some common and rare creat... [More]
