How to make a cast of a Bigfoot Footprint

This is a speech I had to do, but it's on Bigfoot, so I decided to post it here.

How to cast a Bigfoot Track

My demonstrative speech is on how to make a cast of a Bigfoot footprint, or any sort of footprint. While I haven’t actually done this myself, I have seen others do it and have read parts of many books and other things that tell you how to and have seen demonstrations.
If you want to cast  Bigfoot track the best thing to use is Plaster of Paris. Use a bucket and pour in two cups of plaster and one cup of water and stir until all the plaster is mixed with the water and has turned from white to a grayish color. There are several things you should do before you pour the plaster into the track. The first is removing debris like leaves, twigs, etc., but be careful while doing this so you don’t damage the actual print.
Before you pour the plaster onto the cast you should put on a glove and splatter some plaster with your fingers onto the print. Now there is a thin layer of plaster already on the print and you won’t damage it when pouring the rest in. When you do, let some of the plaster spill over the side of the print, because this will reinforce it more.
After you have poured the plaster all you can do is sit and wait. Joedy Cook is a Bigfoot researcher I know, and in one of his books he says he waits about 45 minutes at least before he takes the cast out of the ground, so it has time to set. When you take the cast out you shouldn’t just pull it out of the ground, but dig under it and pull out the soil around and under it. You should wait at least 24 hours before cleaning the cast, but should probably wait longer.
If you follow these steps, you may be able to make a nice cast of a footprint.

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
