Interview With Bigfoot Researcher Paul Hayes
In this interview session, we talk to Paul Hayes founder of The Genoskwa Project. Paul and the Genoskwa team are currently involved in the making of a documentary film entitled "Small Town Monsters". The documentary is being made in Ohio by Alan Fathom Frontiers, Seth Breedlove and Jesse Morgan. The main topic of the documentary is the Minerva Monster that was heavily
talked about in the late 1970's. You can visit the Genoskwa Project Website for more details about the film and get information on the teams Bigfoot research.
- Start Interview -
TM: How long have you been researching/studying Bigfoot?
PH: I have only been pursuing Bigfoot for just a few years, I get out when I can and I normally like to research private property that have had some type of activity..
TM: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started?
PH: What really kicked up my interest was my class A sighting back in 2011, a sighting that had changed my life forever. (Read Paul's Sighting by Clicking Here!)
TM: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a Bigfoot?(details please)
PH: I have had two class A sightings, the first one that was a day time sighting in 2011 and a second one that was at night, I have felt a bit nervous but I have not encountered any aggressive behavior nor did I feel threatened.
TM: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack Bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?
PH: How do I deal with skeptics? I don't because everybody is entitled to their opinion and if they don't believe what I tell them that I encountered well I don't expect them too but you must keep an open mind to a certain extent but when they say prove Bigfoot exist, I say prove they don't and just move on.
TM: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?
PH: I wouldn't mind seeing Bigfoot proven to the public but once it is it will be a whole new ball game out there, if Bigfoot is never proven that will be fine too because there is a lot of people that knows 100% that they exist.
TM: What is your favorite time of year to research/study Bigfoot, When do you have your most success?
PH: My favorite time of the year is early spring and fall, it seems to be the best time of the year in Ohio.
TM: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?
PH: My favorite report would definitely have to be my own from the sighting of 2011.
TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying Bigfoot?
PH: I would still be hitting the trails like I normally would do but researching for Bigfoot is an added bonus because I will say once you have had an encounter you never look at the woods the same anymore and you seem to be more alert.
Thanks for doing the interview and good luck with your research.
- End Interview -
This concludes our 19th installment of our interview series. I still hope to do more of these in the future. So far we have interviewed some amazing people and heard some great encounters.
Often times, Bigfoot and Paranormal research is far from glamorous and requires a lot of time out investigating areas and reports. So we thank all who have taken part in our interview series and wish everyone continued success in the future.
