Putting Talk into Action

Press Release April 26, 2010

Bigfoot/Sasquatch Research taken to a new level

This past week (April 18-April 25, 2010) history was made in Bigfoot/Sasquatch research. For the first time ever, five (5) separate Bigfoot Research groups in the east combined efforts for the first ever multi-group Bigfoot expedition in Spotsylvania County, VA. The research groups consisted of Sasquatch Watch of Virginia, The American Bigfoot Society, Squatch Inc, the Northeast Sasquatch Research Association and the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society. The expedition took place on over 2,000-acres of private land. There were over 30 participants from 10 states at the event.

This expedition was scheduled due to a previous, actual Bigfoot sighting on the property back in May of 2009. Since then, several strange vocalizations, strange, large footprints and mysterious game camera photos have surfaced. All of these occurrences urged Billy Willard, director of Sasquatch Watch of Virginia and Melissa Hovey, president of the American Bigfoot Society, to organize the first ever multi-group expedition. All of those participating tried new ideas of research and the cooperation between the groups was remarkable!

During the expedition strange vocalizations were heard, a subject was filmed in night vision video, and one participant had a strange encounter with something hitting his Jeep during the night. A possible footprint impression was discovered behind the Jeep after the incident and the print was casted. All collected evidence will be analyzed over the next few weeks.

Although the mystery of Bigfoot/Sasquatch was not solved, there was a major accomplishment with this event. For the first time, multiple groups came together for one cause, without the usual in-fighting found in a lot of the Bigfoot research groups. Everyone cooperated, had a great time and looks forward to repeating an event of this scale again soon.

    It is indeed unprecedented in this day and hour to hear about five BF research groups actually working together in the field. I see the need and value of local and regional research groups, but I have always believed that if "Bigfooters" would simply lay down personal agendas and work together like this on key projects, we would reach our mutual goals at a considerably accelerated pace. I'm very encouraged to see this happening. This kind of collaboration has been needed for a very long time and it is my hope that this refreshing trend continues far into the future.

    Great job folks!

    Hello, and thank you for the kind remarks.

    You're right, and I firmly believe if we could work together we would get much further.

    I know all those involved with this cooperative expedition in Virginia are already discussing the return.

    Coincidentally, we have just launched a group dedicated to the idea that ALL groups can benefit from cooperation. The goal is to link enough groups throughout the US that no matter WHERE a report comes in from, it can be forwarded to a group in that area to investigate it.
