Interview with Kentucky Researcher Don Neal
It's time for our second installment of the short interviews series with people from the World of Bigfoot.
In this interview we talk to Don Neal, also known as Biggy Foot. Don is a good ol boy from my home state of Kentucky and is a member of Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organization.
Don has been a licensed and ordained minister for 40 years, the president and founder of 2 church organizations, an Honorary Kentucky Colonel, a trained tornado spotter for the National Weather Service and an accomplished guitarist.
Tom: How long have you been researching/studying bigfoot?
Don: 12 years "officially"
Tom: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started?
Don: 2 things. PG Film when I was 14 yrs old started my primary interest in Bigfoot, and a Minister friends 1st hand account of his sighting back in 1977. He was an expert scout, hunter, and marksman. He had the creature in the sight of his scope for over a full minute. It was a life changing event for Him to experience and for Me to hear. This story pushed me into serious Bigfoot research.
Tom: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a bigfoot?
Don: Not really. Some rocks thrown my way, and a mean growl once, but the scariest of all was a huge tree pushed over about 50 yards from me at midnight then the creature running away loudly.
Tom: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?
Don: Those who believe, need very little explanation. Those who do not believe, no explanation is enough. I expect Skeptics and therefore are never fully disappointed in them being around.
Tom: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?
Don: Yes, if for no other reason than to prove "WE" are not crazy, and to make others aware "they" are there and need our mindful respect.
Tom: What is your favorite time of year to research/study bigfoot, When do you have your most success?
Don: Primarily, late Fall and early Winter because of lack of Ticks and Snakes. and Early spring because most wildlife seems to be moving more than usual.
Tom: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?
Don: YES..... my Minister friends sighting is still the most riveting and real story to me personally.
Tom: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying bigfoot?
Don: As a full time Minister/Pastor I have plenty to do, but my every extra moment is spent studying this Bigfoot phenomenon.
Thanks Don, we look forward to more of your work in the future.
Don also recently took part and submitted evidence to the documentary film Bigfoot : The Evidence Files. You can view some of his research in that film.
