It's a fraud
Figbooters don't seem to get that despite the fact that the American Continent is still has a lot of wilderness, it doesn't have a lot of unexplored wilderness. There is simply no place for a breeding population of large bipedal ape to stay hidden for very long.

This isn't, despite their constantly using this as some sort of comparison, anything like discovering the Coelacanth or the Mountain Gorilla.

Nogard, how about $100 to charity?

I'll give $100 to the charity of your choice if we get a bigfoot body out of Dyer in the 1st week of January, and vice-versa.

Do you believe enough to risk some real money?

It would be huge news, making headlines globally, and I would be set for life.

Any normal, sensible person would do the same. Wouldn't you?

So... with all that awaiting the discoverer, what could possibly cause the delay?

Seriously?
This. Corpses do not improve with age.

Didn't bother reading the rest of the thread. Didn't see any point.

Here I'll take it one step further.

If anyone provides evidence that is widely accepted by the scientific community of a large bipedal ape, humanoid creature or other previously unknown animal that meets a reasonable definition of the cryptid "Bigfoot" existing in the American Pacific Northwest between now and 23 July 2017* I'll donate 250 dollars to any 501(c)(3) charitable organization of Nogard's choice.** in the name of "All Bigfoot researchers, supporters, and enthusiasts the world over, in celebration of the discovery of the once thought mythical creature."

Evidence (reasonably edited to protect my financial/personal privacy) will be provided in the event this occurs.

*This being the date of my retirement and the last day I can be 100% sure of my financial situation at any one given point in the future.

**If Nogard does not suggest a charity, I will default to my preferred charity, the Wounded Warrior Project.

I'm with WP and others on this. Just a planted poster trying to drum up interest/controversy for Dyer's patented and tired hoax. You'll find the same tactic at BFF and other blogging sites. Surprised the thread lasted this long.

Not only will you see pictures and video of the bigfoot, but a top tier team of scientists who have been studying the body for a year will hold a press conference to disclose their findings. Then in 2014, Rick will be taking the body on tour across the U.S. so you can get the chance to see it in person. Also, after this proves bigfoot's existence, will it open up the possibility of other cryptids being real, like the Jersey Devil, for instance? In any case, it will show that mass eyewitness testimony should be taken more seriously than it has been among skeptics.
If bigfoot existed in North America, one would have been killed and identified long before 2013, and I'd bet my gun collection that if there was a BF running around loose before 1980 it would have been killed by Elmer Keith:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmer_Keith

As the only mammals known that Keith never killed are human beings and whales - every other mammal under the sun fell to Keith's guns during the course of his hunting career.

Well obviously I know famous ones like Susan J. Coleman, Salvation Army, Red Cross etc. but my knowledge of any others is very limited so it shouldn't be up to me. That being said I'm done with this site. Even if this is true I won't be back because I have better things to do then get insulted on a dumb forum. Goodbye and God bless. I'll be praying for you all to accept Jesus as your savior.

It says here the new package include 3 free months of both TruBS|Tru Bigfoot Shenanigans™ and TDC|The Drinking Channel®? Is that true? Sometimes in those offers they jerk you around with bait-n-switch teasers like that so you never know, I always have to ask. Alright already, you've convinced me. I'm dialing the number now. Sheesh.

And what does Jesus have to do with it anyway? last time I saw him, he was worried about the chupacabra.

What an odd poster. I wonder who that actually was?

River, the 10 million offered is part of a reality Bigfoot show concept. Both Steve Kulls and myself were contacted by Spike about appearing as one of the teams on this show. Steve is under contract to Nat Geo or somebody else and I don't do interviews with reporters or TV.

I could use 10 mil as much as the next guy but I'm not willing to kill one for money. If I'm ever attacked, well that's different. Boom Boom there's your body. Unless that happens, we'll stick to the plan of gathering info thru observation and study with the primary goal of obtaining one that has expired due to natural causes or sickness/accident.

I hear that. I could shoot one anytime I wanted. I just don't feel like it, either.

If I could get 5 mil for a good HD photo or video that'd be nice. But without a body it likely could not pass as authentic footage of an unknown creature. The easy explanation would be it was a Hollywood production video/pic.

Technically, unless they did it in a normal city/town/village*, there would be no law against shooting a non-existant life form.






*where most have laws against the discharge of firearms within city limits..

I am going for the Million Dollar JREF thing here and predicting that we will reach 11:59:59 PM January 31, 2014 with no video, no body and no scientists (as we know scientists - holders of advanced degrees, publish in real journals, work for actual schools instead of diploma mills or McDonald's, do real/recognized research in appropriate fields)).

Possibly earlier plans have left me some jaded on this matter.




On the other hand, if lucky, not only will it turn out to be real, but it's stomach contents will be the remains of some chupacabras and obvious ET bones!!!!!

I could use 10 mil as much as the next guy but I'm not willing to kill one for money. If I'm ever attacked, well that's different. Boom Boom there's your body. Unless that happens, we'll stick to the plan of gathering info thru observation and study with the primary goal of obtaining one that has expired due to natural causes or sickness/accident.

Can you present anything at all to back up your claims? What ya got?

Guys

I wonder if we just missed an opportunity, in the haste to make Nogard's claim look even sillier than the actuality. I reckon when people like him come along we should probe a little first, before turning on the derision. Find out what he knows, who he knows, why he thinks he knows something we don't. We didn't even find out if he has had any conversations with any protagonists, or has any other "information" not in the public domain. I'm sorry to see he has gone, as I feel we have missed out on something, even if it is just the source/s of his story.

Mike

I don't know River, I guess you could watch this National Geographic Loch Ness show with Steve here if you want:

As far as transcripts of phone calls and meetings, I normally don't keep a record of those. It'd be nice if you had to prove something you say just once and again. But alas, not even your name surfaces here does it? Enjoy the video though.

Thanks for stopping by, and I cannot wait to see one of my childhood stories come to life (so to speak).

I just hope that no-one mistakenly turns off the freezer / body unrecoverable / unfair to the species to present a less than perfect specimen / see you next year folks.

(calling it).
