Review: Finding Bigfoot 1-6-13
This was actually a pretty great episode, a 7 1/2 out of 10, focusing on the Olympic Peninsula in western Washington State, where the Finding Bigfoot team hooked up with the Washington BFRO, including the one and only Tyler Bounds, who led them to the area he got some interesting audio recordings not very long ago. For the first night operations, the team split into groups, and Cliff got a very interesting thermal hit which appeared to be humanlike, and it did not seem to be a member of their party. This left the team puzzled as to what it was, but they decided to wait to get back to a place where they could examine it. In the meantime, Cliff, Matt and Ranae went to hold a town hall meeting, but held it with people that Tyler personally filtered out himself; Bobo stayed in the field for solo operations, and it seemed promising for what he was doing, but he ultimately got nothing. There were several stories told at the meeting, and investigated by the team, including an individual who had some photos of tracks where the photographer used a pen as scale in the photo, a smart move on his part. The tracks looked pretty good, but it was hard to tell if they were from a 'Squatch or not. After interviewing several other witnesses (including one which seemed to be doubted a bit by even Moneymaker!), they decided to switch tactics and use a FLIR truck which monitors a large area with thermal cameras. This thermal was so good, field mice were even seen hopping around near a mother deer and her fawn. The team did some calls, and found...well, I will not spoil it. All in all, the best episode of the season so far. Next week, the team heads to the Sportsman's Paradise of Louisiana, 10:00 EST/9:00 Central on Animal Planet.
