Well, we have been a long time getting here, but we are posting our 22nd installment of "Interview with a researcher." Today's researcher is Tye Chapman. She is part of the researching duo known as Corey and Tye or the Bonaparte Bigfoot Team. Her research partner, Corey, was part of our series back in 2014. You can read his interview by Clicking Here. Over the past few years, and especially the last year, we have featured BBT's efforts here on our website. They have captured some good audio and found some nice tracks, along with other evidence.
Here is my interview with Tye.
- Start Interview -
TM: How long have you been researching/studying bigfoot?
TC: I have been heavily researching bigfoot since March of 2015.
TM: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started?
TC: My interest in bigfoot began at age 10 . I went to the movies to see the legend of boggy creek, since then I've been hooked on the big guys.
TM: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a bigfoot?
TC: I have only had one aggressive encounter, although I do not believe it was bigfoot. I believe it was the Missouri monster, but that's another story.
TM: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?
TC: I am learning to just brush off the attacks, it's really hard to deal with sometimes, especially if they are vicious. I just remember that I love what I do and that's all that matters.
TM: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?
TC: Yes and no. Yes I would love to see bigfoot proven without a doubt. On the other hand, if it is proven I'm afraid of all the hunting and testing and torture that bigfoot would have to endure.
TM: What is your favorite time of year to research/study bigfoot, When do you have your most success?
TC: Spring and summer is my most successful time to have encounters. After a long cold winter the big guys and gals like to come out and enjoy themselves just like we do.
TM: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?
TC: The first time that I ever squatched was kinda funny, Corey had taken me to Lacey lake . He had asked them to throw a big rock in the lake. As soon as he asked they threw one, well I jumped out of my skin and just about climbed up Corey's back . Lol . It took Corey some time to calm me down. Since then I get very excited to hear anything the big guys want to give us.
TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying bigfoot?
TC: If I wasn't researching bigfoot I'd be wishing I was. I can't imagine doing anything else.
