The 200th Anniversary of the First Reported Bigfoot Sighting?

On January 7, 1811 Canadian explorer David Thompson recorded these words in his daily journal while pioneering through what is now Alberta, Canada:
[In the snow] I saw the track of a large Animal - has 4 large Toes abt 3 or 4 In long & a small nail at the end of each... The whole is about 14 In long by 8 In wide & very much resembles a large Bear's Track."
14 inches long by 8 wide!

The Bigfoot Field Reporter Radio Show Returns

I always seem to get antsy for Bigfoot in January.  I don't like the cold much and it just seems like the hairy ones like to lay low in the winter months.  So, why not revive the radio show?
My first guest will be Steven Streufert of Willow Creek.  Steven is the sole proprietor of Bigfoot Books in Willow Creek and I have had the chance to hang out with Steven in the past 2 years.

Steven was our guide who took us down the Go road to Bluff Creek on that hot August day.  He had to leave us before it got dark and the 5 of us spent the night in the dark until Bobo and Slasher showed up around 11 pm.

It is so amazing how people in this field of Bigfootery can bond so quickly.  We laughed all night, then came the fateful return up the mountain the next day...but you all know that story.

I met Steven again at the Oregon Sasquatch symposium and we spent a few hours relaxing and chatting during the breaks.
Slasher and Mike Esordi

I can honestly call Steven a friend and I hope you join our lively and sure to be animated conversation this Sunday at 7 pm EST.

See you there!

For the Idahoan Squatchers

Bigfoot sightings expected in Ketchum Sun Valley Brokers

Film, lecture part of Sun Valley Center program
As part of its ongoing multidisciplinary project Creatures, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts will be showing the documentary Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie on Thursday, Jan. 20, at 6:30 p.m. The screening will be held at The Center in Ketchum. Admission is free and the movie lasts about an hour.
Jay Delaney's 2008 film follows two amateur Bigfoot researchers, Dallas Gilbert and Wayne Burton, as they try to track the legendary creature in the Appalachian foothills of southern Ohio. Along the way we see how the power of a dream can bring two men together in friendship and provide hope and meaning that transcend the harsh realities of life in a dying steel town.
The film was an official selection at multiple independent film festivals in 2008 and 2009. The Chicago Tribune called it "a story of enduring friendship and epic dreams."
The Center also presents Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, considered by many to be the nation's leading expert on Sasquatch, for a lecture on Thursday, Feb. 10, at 6:30 p.m.
Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is an example of a cryptid, a creature whose existence has been reported but is unconfirmed by the scientific community. Cryptids are at the heart of The Center's current visual arts exhibition, Creatures: From Bigfoot to the Yeti Crab. Prior to the film screening, The Center is offering a free guided tour of the exhibition at 5:30 p.m.
