A FEW RANDOM PHOTOS FROM
THE TEXAS "BOOT CAMP"
KXII NEWS CHANNEL 12 did a two part series on the Boot Camp expedition. You can see it online at; http://www.kxii.com/home/headlines/11090741.html
It's no secret our most active and dependable area in the country is Paris, Texas.
We monitor it 365 days a year, we have embedded local teams and we do the full on expedition there several times a year, and we always learn more from the evidence we find there.
Fall 2007 was no exception. When asked where we'd like to film the pilot for our upcoming TV series, it didn't take too much discussion and no one was surprised the answer was our study area in Texas.
Because of the complexity of this particular mission, and all the extra personnel we were going to have on site with us (film crew, producers, etc.) we scaled down the number of applicants looking to join us for the first time in the field. Out of the many who applied we choose only 4 to join us, and I have to say the men we choose were a perfect fit to the SFBF Team. Jimmy Jernigan, Lee Joiner, Billy Willard and Tom (Tom's Last Name???? have to ask Stevie) all did fantastic and I'd like to welcome them to the SFBF Family! Jimmy (or 'JJ' as we dubbed him) actually joined us on expedition later in New Mexico (somebody's got the Bigfoot Bug!)
I have to give kudos to the field production team from Hotel Fountain Productions as well. They are the production company filming and producing the TV series.
These guys were as hard as any film crew you'd want in the field, and most importantly, they 'Got it'! We were also joined by old friends and new while in our home away from home, I'd like to thank Lance Bailey, one of our local researchers for all his hospitality and knowledge he shared with us while we were there. Lance is a very insightful man, please check out his website www.lancebailey.org and you'll see what I mean.
OK, you've heard about all of our great people, I bet you're wondering what we had in the way of Bigfoot activity. Well, like I stated before, Paris never disappoints, and this time was no exception. We were able to gather several types of physical evidence from scat to hair samples. We also found a 'Bigfoot Hang-out' where we could see the creatures were quite comfortable in spending some of their leisure time. We discovered an incredible impression of where 2 creatures sat, one in front of the other, where we assume they were practicing their grooming techniques. Much like apes do, they will groom each other, and we could see 2 well defined buttocks imprints in the ground, complete with heel marks where they undoubtedly spent some time. In this same area we found several piles of scat, and many remnants of nut, muscle and even turtle shells.
One night we set up several posts around a swampy area we know is active, we set up cameras, hunkered in and waited to see if there would be any action. Several of the posts reported loud splashing in the water, as if someone or something were throwing boulders. After careful examination and investigation, including trying to re-create the sound with items found along the shore, we we're able to figure out where the mysterious splashes were coming from. It was after a day of pondering, discussing and re-creating, that we posted in the same positions and we caught them red handed, ah, well, red tailed that is. Our mystery splashes were a family of some of the largest beaver I'd ever seen. Sometimes it takes a little time and effort to figure out the origin of some of these nocturnal activities, debunking is the most important part of our job, and it takes a team to do it right.
Just as the team was putting the case of the 'beaver boulders' to rest, Tom Biscardi was guiding a film crew from a local TV station into our location. Most news teams are skeptics at best, and are there for the local human interest story, but this crew actually spent quite a bit of time with us trying to learn about what we do.
Well, in the usual SFBF fashion, we saw the transformation from skeptic to believer that night, when Tom and the news crew had an encounter of their own. You can see it in the 2 part story KXII ran by following this link: (opens in a new window) http://www.kxii.com/home/headlines/11090741.html
