2011 The Bluff Creek Film Site Project Videos Part 1 and 2

The November 1st (2011) corrected and revised map, drawn by  Robert Leiterman.

"See the Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film Site area as it is today. Study a little history while you're at it. Part on an ever-ongoing series." -- Steven Streufert

In our earlier post, "The Most Refreshing Bigfoot Research" (November 18, 2011) . We mentioned not only the great work done by Robert Leiterman, Steven Streufert, Rowdy Kelly. We also gave proper respect (or "props" if we wanted to establish our street cred) to their open approach to sharing their research. 

Below are part 1 and part 2 of the 2011 season, part 2 just uploaded to YouTube Today (DEC 30th 2011).

Coalition for Reason, Science and Sanity in Bigfoot Research

Rational thought and open discussion abounds at new Facebook Group

"This is a pro-Bigfoot group open to skepticism and critical thought, so long as it is not hateful or slanderous." --Steven Streufert

The next best thing to happen to Bigfoot Research. We predict the Coalition for Reason, Science and Sanity in Bigfoot (CFRSSBR)is going to be the best place to openly debate and share rational bigfoot discussions. We also predict it will grow like gangbusters. After being up for only a week it has gained over 100 members. Even better, the activity and participation has been enormous.

The biggest appeal to this facebook group is the tone set by Steven Streufert and Nadia Moore. Both Steven and Nadia have done a great job of establishing respectful debate and openness to skepticism and critical thought.

The description of the group by Steven Streufert is as follows:

This group is open to all, and seeks to promote the spirit of rational thinking and evidence-based reality orientation in a field gone mad with fantastical dreaming and grandiose presupposition. Add all of your "Squatching" friends to this group. This is a pro-Bigfoot group open to skepticism and critical thought, so long as it is not hateful or slanderous. Take a stand for the compatibility of Sasquatch and Reason.

The Most Refreshing Bigfoot Research

"...I HAVE been thinking how nice it would be to get my nose out of the old Bluff Creek topo maps, and start thinking about and blogging on new topics. That IS coming up, so watch out. I am going to take on the entire world of Bigfooting, and some of it won't be too pretty."
-- Steven Streufert in reaction to his post

Everything that we felt had been missing in bigfoot research can be found today at Bigfoot's bLog. We recomend you go back to the previous sentence and click that link, read the post and come back here. Don't worry the link will open a new window and we will be here when you get back.

Why do we love the research by Robert Leiterman, Steven Streufert, Rowdy Kelly? because its thoroughly tangible, inclusive and open to review.

This is research you can almost touch and feel. All the different overlapping maps, photographs and illustrations make the data approachable from multiple angles. The physicality of the bluff creek area feels almost with in reach.

Anybody who's been in the community knows most of the research is exclusive. Information is not easily shared between camps, and more often than not, ideas compete against each other instead of shaping each other. This usually results in a slow roll out of any conclusion (like the recent DNA stuff) or ideological mudslinging from differing camps.

On Streufert's blog, in additional to his teams own fieldwork, he includes others who have researched Bluff Creek in great detail MK Davis and Bill Munns weaving a pretty good tapestry of what we can know about bluff creek.

Another obstruction in Bigfoot research is the ownership issue. Some are possessive over their research, Streufert and the rest throw it all out there. They don't hold on to bits and pieces and tease it out. They share enough information so we can explore the data ourselves. The maps and illustrations are extremely detailed.

For you long-time fans it wouldn't surprise you Bigfoot Lunch Club would have such high praise for this new Bluff Creek research. Inclusiveness is in our editorial DNA.

Bigfoot Lunch Club salutes Robert Leiterman, Steven Streufert, Rowdy Kelly. For giving us something we can dig our teeth into. This is how the community should be sharing research, this is how the community should be sharing each others data.

BIGFOOT'S bLOG reveals the reality of Finding Bigfoot's P/G Film episode

Rogues Gallery at the Museum: James "Bobo" Fay, Bob Gimlin, Al Hodgson, Tom Yamarone, Cliff Barackman and Steven Streufert. Photo snapped by a crew member whose name we didn't catch.

"It should be said here and now that the film crew were on the right spot, as identified by Bob Gimlin, but the recreation shown in the show was done down on the gravel bar edge of the creek for better filming. The ACTUAL film site is back on the elevated sand bar BEHIND where you see Bobo walking. [Bobo's Path] is not the true track-way of the creature seen in the PGF." -- Steven Streufert

Steven Streufert appeared on last sundays Finding Bigfoot Episode. He is the owner of Bigfoot Books and the editor of BIGFOOT'S bLOG. We are big fans of his blog and have huge respect for his "tell-it-like-it-is" style (see Bigfoot Wars Pt. II).

Below is a short excerpt from his experience. His post sheds some light on what we had wished they would have spent more time on in the episode. After the excerpt jump to his post!

And, by the way, we have REDISCOVERED the PATTERSON-GIMLIN FILM SITE, or so it seems, and we have documented it. Yes, that means we have found the big trees and the stumps, and will almost certainly be able to re-trace the creature's track-way as in the film. That news is going to be coming out slowly here on this blog. I've also been posting on the MUNNS REPORT thread on the BIGFOOT FORUMS. It looks absolutely certain, to me anyway, that we have indeed found the site. So, stay tuned for yet more BLUFF CREEK FILM SITE PROJECT. (See under "Favorites" through this link.) It should be said here and now that the film crew were on the right spot, as identified by Bob Gimlin, but the recreation shown in the show was done down on the gravel bar edge of the creek for better filming. The ACTUAL film site is back on the elevated sand bar BEHIND where you see Bobo walking. That is not the true track-way of the creature seen in the PGF.

Bigfoot Wars II: Beware of the Trolls

In our first Installation of Bigfoot Wars, we borrowed heavily from Steven Streufert's BIGFOOTS bLOG.

Steven Streufert and his sincere opinions are again a topic at The Journal, a Humboldt County Weekly. The article, titled Bigfoot and the Trolls highlights some of the back and forth between Streufert and a few members/moderators of the Bigfoot Forums. The troll reference is from a post on Streuferts Blog described in the blurb below.

On May 29 at 12:10 a.m. Streufert posted a cryptic warning on his blog and, as he always did, posted notice of it on the BFF: “When looking for Bigfoot, watch out for TROLLS.”

The article continues to allow the story unfold on its own and pauses in the excerpt below, telling much about Streufert.

“I haven’t had a sighting that I can prove,” he said. “But I think the anecdotal evidence is tremendous. I can point in all directions here to places where Bigfoot has been seen, right from this store [by others]. Including across the river right there” — he pointed through the store toward the open front door, beyond which lay the highway and the Trinity River — “and including behind these cabins out here. Last year, there was a sighting up on Friday Ridge Road, and by the forest lookout.”

With regularity, as if they’re just reporting yet another black bear crossing the road or raiding someone’s garden, people come into his store to tell him they or someone they know just saw Bigfoot.

“This store’s like Bigfoot bait,” Streufert, who’s 45, said. “And when I opened it in 2005, that’s what I was thinking: I could put Bigfoot in the name and have Bigfoot in the front window, and people would eventually start coming in here.”

Bigfoot books and memorabilia do flood the store. Even so, there are far more books on non-Bigfoot topics, from religion to romance. Streufert has a master’s in literature and a master’s in teaching writing, both from Humboldt State. He loves learning about everything, he said.

The article is one of the best reads in a long time. The other item, if you didn't already know, is Bigfoot Forums is under new management.
