Shooting Bigfoot - Wasted Time

A week or two ago I found the show Shooting Bigfoot playing on Destination America. Since it was a show about Bigfoot I decided to watch it.

When I started watching it was already partway through. Basicsally it was filmed by a guy named Morgan Matthews going around with a camera and going to places where different people were looking for Bigfoot. And, let me tell you, this show is not something that would make any non-believer see that most Bigfooters aren't total nuts or hoaxers. Why? Well, because those appeared to be the only people Matthews filmed for his show.

The people he follows around include hoaxers like Tom Biscardi and Rick Dyer. There's also a few guys from Ohio (I have no idea who they were) and some people from other places. In one that I watched, he was with the two guys from Ohio in the middle of the day when they said they saw a Bigfoot at the edge of the woods. Matthews could not see it. Then one of the guys proceeded to tell him that he (the guy, not Matthews) had been "chosen" (or something like that) and that he somehow had sheep DNA because of a bone in him, etc… and that's why he could see the Bigfoot but Matthews couldn't.

I'm going to skip a lot of this and go to the end of the show.

At that part Matthews is with Rick Dyer and they wake up in the middle of the night after something supposedly attacks Matthews' tent. Then you get to see Rick Dyer running around in his underwear carrying a gun running after whatever it was. Then you actually see something run by!
Yeah, Rick Dyer seriously runs around in his underwear after a "Bigfoot"

Yes, you actually see something. When I first watched, I though - wait a minute? Did they really just see something?

Yes, apparently, they did, because you see it again.

Of course, during this whole time, the dialogue of the show is "bleep-this" and "bleep-that," and Rick starts shooting at the "bigfoot" while he and Matthews become separated. When Matthews heads back to camp his is "attacked" by the "Bigfoot" (which you can conveniently see in the camera for just a second.)
Real Bigfoot? Nope.

My main point of this article is to recommend that any of you out there who haven't seen Shooting Bigfoot should not watch it. It will be a waste of your time.

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.
