How did I know this location would be a good one to explore?  What was the contributing factor for this location?  I can answer that with 2 simple reasons:

  • 2 reported sightings within 7 miles.
  • One tree break next to a year round stream.
The sightings gave me a general location to look.  Then I drove around on forest back roads looking for the "squatchy" spot.  My definition of a squatchy spot is to look for aspen and pine mixed together, ravines, year round water source such as a creek or stream and deer/elk scat with some type of tree structures.  I spotted a tree break next to a little stream that was clear and year round.  Literally this location called out to me.  I have learned to listen to my gut feelings while out in the field.  Within 3 miles of this "squatchy" spot we have found many other signs of them but for some reason this specific location has the most.    We have had knocks and eye shine at this location twice.  Pay dirt.

Why do some investigators able to find locations of Bigfoot related activities while many do not? 

Is there some mystery to this success?

In my 2 years of investigating I have been fairly successful in being able to locate Bigfoot activity.  Is there a reason why I have been able to do this with some degree of success?  
  • I do my homework.  I will research areas of known activities.  Maps and the Internet are crucial resources for me.
  • Then I will actually drive and look at promising locations.  
  • Signs of Bigfoot activity at promising locations will tell you if you are looking in the right direction.
  • Then getting in there and exploring the location.
Good investigations of new locations if done right take time, effort and legwork.  This needs to be done before you really get in there and try to pinpoint the group and to establish contact.  That to me is the formula for success.  I feel that all of these steps are needed for researchers.

So gather your information and get out there!  You will not regret it.  This journey is fascinating and compelling.
