Bigfoot Hunters Dallas and Wayne are back

A screen shot of the old Dallas & Wayne website

"Despite setbacks over the past year, Dallas and Wayne continue their research, and we've continued to film their adventures." -- Series Creator/Producer Andrew Dodson 

You can read about the previous adventures of Dallas and Wayne. They gained notoriety mostly from the award winning documentary, Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie. You may have even watched the movie with us, as we were at the Portland screening of the movie. The movie is decribed below:
Dallas Gilbert and Wayne Burton, two real-life Bigfoot researchers starring as themselves in a semi-fictional story providing a look into the trials and triumphs of life in the Apalacian foot hiils. Through these two amateur BF researchers from southern Ohio, we see how the power of a dream can define a friendship and provide hope and a meaning that transcends the harsh realities of life in a dying steel town.
After several failed attempts to attract national attention and convince the world Bigfoot exist, Dallas catches a lucky break. He pursuades a high-profile Bigfoot researcher [Tom Biscardi] to stop in Portsmouth and see check out the research accumulated by Dallas and Wayne. As the movie accelerates ever closer towards the realization of their mutual dream, we are reminded how fragile this shared hope truly is.
The movie turned into a TV series titled Dallas & Wayne: The Bigfoot Hunters. You can watch video of the season two premier episode below.

  1. Wow--I didn't catch where the show is shown. I am happy. I loved these guys in the documentary and I wondered what ever happened to them. They are so adorable. Glad to see they're still making loads of contact with BF (smile).

  4. In 1989 I remember watching the tv show unsolved mysteries and the episode was about 2 brothers hunting with their kids in Colorado or somewhere and they thought it was a bear breaking in there cabin at night but it turned out to be a big foot and at the end of the episode they Sid where all the Bigfoot sightings were in the country and years sighted etc. and lo and behold they made mention of Bigfoot ugh things in northeastern Ohio in the late 70s and early 80s between Cleveland and mentor by the swamps so I know what I seen was true as a7 yer old boy back in 1980

  5. While I really like these guys (my type) and I did watch their movie, they like the "finding big foot team" are going about it all the wrong way. Do you think these "animals"/ are just plain dumb? Do you they yelling and wood knocking will attract them in? No! it repels them!

    The reason why 90% of big foot researchers never have much luck it because they still adopt and use these outdated methods. During their climb up that hill, do you think "if" any were around they would just stand there and watch these fat out of shape smelly humans come up to them? They must have sounded like a herd of Elephants coming!
