What else are those guys gonna do? There's literally nothing going on in the Bigfoot world. This is a community which still barks on about a hoax from the 1960's, because there's nothing else to discuss.

I bet Footers spend their evenings cheering themselves up by browsing BFRO reports from around the US, clicking their ruby-red slippered-feet together and weeping uncontrollably.

Bigfooters see naturally occuring formations of leaning and fallen trees and declare that they are not natural and were instead created by Bigfoot. Here we see an accumulation of leaning or fallen dead trees which are supporting each other and preventing them from dropping all the way to the ground.

They will commonly refer to these as "teepee structures" because they often resemble the foundation of Indian homes that were constructed by arranging tree trunks into an inverted cone shape. But this formation will occur naturally when trees lean or fall against each other in a forest. In some situations a teepee shape will be arrived at and may continue for decades with continued accumulation.

These same people will see the beginnings of such formations with a single leaning tree or one that has fallen against another and is propped up by the limbs of the nearby supporting tree. This sets the stage for an eventual teepee. But these starts will be overlooked and the focus is in finding a more complete formation of more numerous accumulated trees. At that point it becomes a meaningful formation and they declare that it isn't natural and was made by Bigfoot or maybe people.

There probably could be some fancy algorithm which predicts that these teepee formations will automatically appear when forest trees lean or fall at random.

If you could have very long-term time lapse film of the forest you would see these teepee things "create themselves" without any intelligent agency. OMG... Teepees Happen!

Yes, and they also attribute commonly man made structures to the workings of the Bigfoot.

Examples:

* Teepees created by kids playing in the woods http://boyslife.org/outdoors/3473/taking-shelter/

* Natural blinds created by hunters in the woods
http://www.realitysurvival.com/groun...-deer-hunting/

* Rock stacking structures created by hikers

Larger limbs are often tipi-ed in this manner to facilitate drying out for use as firewood. You'll see them at maintained portages.

I never saw the first one(s). Apparently they're old hat at this? Here's a press release they had from July 11, 2017:
Originally Posted by Biscardi July 11 Press Release

REDWOOD CITY, CA, UNITED STATES, July 11, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Bigfoot Project Investments Inc. (BGFT) the industry leader in producing award winning documentaries about the elusive creature known as Bigfoot is teaming up with the Round Rock Texas Parks and Recreation Department for a Day With Bigfoot...
The godfather of Bigfoot hunters? Says who, Paul Castellano's butler? And the industry leader? What industry? Phlegm Ball Recycling? Award winning documentaries? Documentaries nobody saw? And yet the press release Parcher just linked to says "fact based thriller". Fact being a wholly subjective term.

Like everything Bigfoot it's all just words. Biscardi picked up on that years ago and maybe that's why he's now the capo di tutti capi. The bigger you talk the more automatically it becomes true. I mean look at him, he's the godfather of Bigfoot hunters and an unknown industry leader along with being a big-time Bigfoot movie producer and he's never seen a real Bigfoot in his life. He's very accomplished for not being very accomplished.

Wasn't The Godfather nothing but a low life criminal? From that point of view it seems to describe Biscardi rather well.

You know that you making fun of Bigfoot teepee structures doesn't mean they're not real Bigfoot teepee structures. And it's a fact proven by Bob Gimlin that Bigfeet bury their dead no matter the weather. Wait, whoops, sorry, was testing out my response had my head been blown clean off by a .44 magnum, the kind my uncle Dirty Harry used I been a BLAARGer.

The BF mind appears to contain a predisposition to OCD, is what I have concluded. Patterns and symmetry seem to tweak their pleasure centers ....but we as a species have similar tendencies I believe.

This is an alleged adult talking like this. On the other hand, he's onto something in recognizing the human element common to all bigfoot evidence; he just doesn't realize what the connection is.

I'm going to assume that NL hasn't managed to obtain any evidence whatsoever, despite claiming he was onto something interesting a couple of months ago. Easiest 50 I've ever made. Mwahaha!

Bigfoot lives inside the imagination of grown-ass men and women. Bigfoot will never die, he may only be forgotten.

If you hold a place for him in your heart, then he's everywhere, and he's wishing you well.

Bigfoot,
he lives inside.
Bigfoot,
no need to hide.
Bigfoot,
a warm embrace.
Bigfoot,
a human face.
Bigfoot,
a pleasing smile.
Bigfoot,
please stay a while.

The end of the BFRO report cited in that post gives the investigator's credentials.

"About BFRO Investigator Carter Buschardt:
Carter is originally from Texas & moved to Missouri in 1988. Professional drummer for 20 years. Lighting technician for major touring groups for several years. Experienced outdoorsman and was a trained investigator for MUFON. Studied Herpetology in college. Longtime special interest in Sasquatch long term habituation, burial research, infra sound, language & stick structures. BFRO Public Expeditions: 2010 Missouri, 2012 & 2013 Iowa. 2012 Illinois. Michigan 2016. Private Expeditions: Illinois 2011, 2012, 2013. Missouri 2011, 2012 (3) 2013(2) 2014. Iowa 2012, 2014 & 2015. Consulted on two Animal Planet Finding Bigfoot TV shows. Expedition leader in Missouri 2013 (1) & 2014 (2). Led night ops on numerous BFRO expeditions.
"

Wow, he's quite the unaccomplished and unsuccessful hunter. The kind we can only dream of being. He should probably be on the next non-round-up Bigfoot Round-Up in <gulp> Iowa. Just think, if in all that hunting he had taken just one clear picture of the beast, the world would have been his oyster. But nope, instead he's clinging to his glory days as a Lighting Tech II at a couple Foghat concerts.

Was the video ironically blurry? Jesus, there were ten times as many people manning the booths as there were wandering bigfoot enthusiasts; I wonder how well the presentations were attended? Looks like the sad state of footery is in a sad state.

To be fair, I think that video was shot before the show opened for the day.

The speaker things were more well-attended

That might depend on the definition of "well attended". Then again, Bigfoot can only save those who seek him so it's possible the rest of the massive conference crowd (and also that guy's mother) were out in the field near the auditorium "bugling" up a Bigfoot while the bulk of the gargantuan crowd stayed inside and listened to Shuck Huckster tell a fascinating story about the time he kept hearing small rocks being deliberately thrown onto the metal roof of his remote cabin by some strange unseen hairy being outside in the shadows, but finally realized he lived on the 37th floor of the 50 floor Strump Tower in Vancouver and has never actually had a roof, a remote cabin or the ability to hear.

Just like that time Mount St. Helen's erupted, the Men in Black came and spirited them away in helicopters so that the world wouldn't freak out over the fact that 10-foot-tall ape-men are living among us.

While I'm obviously joking, this is a standard response from a Footer, and likely one that you'll see peddled out by some fingerless-glove-wearing gimp or other in the coming weeks.

Bigfoot survives all natural disasters and still manages to escape detection. Other large animals get displaced, but not bigfoot. It's amazing that not a single bigfoot gets flushed from its underground lair or swept away from the tree it's hiding behind.

Not even Mother Nature can flush out the mighty bigfoot.

The lack of any Skunk Ape carcasses is excellent evidence that their population survived intact. They may use this opportunity to explore damaged homes and remove or relocate some items so researchers should be looking for that.
