- Start Interview -
Tom: How long have you been researching/studying bigfoot?
SC: Since 2009
Tom: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started?
SC: Childhood sighting of two infants and adult experience in 2009
Tom: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a bigfoot?
SC: Yes, was bluff charged in 2010 and "zapped" very badly in 2013, I had blood in my urine for a couple days after the event.
Tom: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?
SC: I ignore them mostly. I have blogged extensively on many issues concerning Bigfoot and the proof of their existence, so now I just post a link to the pertinent post for the subject matter being debated.
Tom: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?
SC: I would like to see the public made aware of their existence. I think the NPS and DOI have known about their existence since the late 50's and the public deserves to know they are out there and take the proper precautions.
Tom: What is your favorite time of year to research/study bigfoot, When do you have your most success?
SC: May to October, have had best results in the heat of the day in August/September
Tom: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?
Tom: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying bigfoot?
SC: BF research is a hobby, I fish, hunt, hike, camp, etc. BF research can be worked into many of these other activities.
Thanks for doing the interview and we wish you continued good luck with Bigfootin.
