Throughout history, stories of “giant men”, “hairy men”, “Sasquatch”, “Bigfoot” have been passed down through cave drawings, folk lore, film footage, eyewitness accounts and many other forms of media.
Every generation retells the story, each decade becoming more technically advanced. The children of 2012 are learning about Bigfoot and other cryptozoological creatures through shows such as Finding Bigfoot and Destination Truth.
Not only are certain individuals “telling the stories”, many others are out in the field becoming the stories; performing the research.
It seems that a substantial amount of researchers want to be left alone. Many perform their research as individuals; however, others choose to belong to a research organization.
Throughout the United States, there are hundreds of research organizations. Some organizations share their information, while others hide under a cloak of mystery.
I have become frustrated trying to get everyone on the same page; a daunting task that I adopted as part of my mission statement as The Bigfoot Field Reporter.
My mission is as follows: To promote and share research, information and events regarding the existence of the unlisted primate species known as the sasquatch or Bigfoot; and to help further education and understanding to the public regarding the species throughout the United States of America.
Chapter 1 tomorrow.
