How to Hunt Bigfoot in the Wilderness...Without Weapons

We don't need weapons to "hunt" Bigfoot
This is a guest post by Ron Mcallen. Ron is an avid outdoorsman and hunter who has traveled all over the nation.

Hunting has long been one of the great American pastimes. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recorded nearly 13 million active American hunters in the last survey, who combined for over 200 million days chasing deer, elk, turkey and even Kodiak bears. Hunting has been a vital part of human activity since the days our ancestors first picked up a sharpened stick, but what would happen if you had to hunt Bigfoot and bring home a meal without the aid of a high-powered rifle or compound bow?

Snare It Up

Passive hunting lets you gather up your next meal without having to stalk, chase or overpower your quarry, this technique will come in quite handy while hunting Sasquatch and conserving your energy. By creating snares, hunters can collect prey animals in a situation where you cannot afford to waste heat or energy. Place a snare where you can find the telltale signs of small animals, such as tracks, droppings, chewed plants and nests. Rigging a snare requires only a length of rope or elastic material and can be done by putting a knotted loop over an area. Small animals with poor vision, namely rabbits and squirrels, walk over the rope, which tightens when they pull it forward.


Dispatching an immobilized animal poses little difficulty, even when larger than you or armed with teeth and claws, but in the case of this big creature, this approach might not be the best strategy to use. For example, imagine placing nets in areas where Bigfoot will run when startled, upon capture you will have only a few precious seconds to either tranquilize or take a fatal shot, so be sure to make it count. It's hard to improvise a net out in the wild unless you can find a source of thin bark, so purchase nylon nets at an outdoor gear store to be prepared for hunting with your hands.

Pitfalls And Perils

One of the oldest methods of hunting large game incorporates the power of gravity. By creating a pitfall, larger animals that would be impossible to take down without a weapon can be made into a meal. Creating a pitfall while is time and energy-intensive it is probably the best strategy for hunting Bigfoot, however, since you will need to dig out an area deep enough that a creature cannot climb out of, and then cover it with leaves, sticks, and other camouflage. Lay a pitfall along an area where Bigfoot is sure to cross, such as a worn path. Larger animals congregate around water sources, which can be scarce in rural areas, so laying a pitfall near the only pond or river in an area gives a higher chance of success.

Foot Traps

More likely to catch an animal than a simple snare, a hunting trap will immobilize any animal that wanders into its catch spring. To make a foot trap from scratch, sharpen stakes with a pocketknife that will clamp down on an animal's paws or hooves. Some public areas have outlawed the use of foot traps, due to their risk to other hunters. Be sure to take a hunter course to understand the state's hunting laws and regulations. These courses help you come home with a better probability of catching the historic creature known as Bigfoot, whether you go out armed with a weapon or just your own two hands.

Acclaimed Author Exposes Propaganda Preventing us from Knowing Bigfoot

Acclaimed author Kirk Sigurdson is currently working on publishing a new Bigfoot  book
"I don't really care for the term conspiracy theory, I prefer something more descriptive like selective history or bernaysian-style propaganda" --Kirk Sigurdson

On October 20th HopsSquatch will host the Wunderland of  Bigfoot presentation and Kirk Sigurdson will be the lagomorph that takes us there. Kirk Sigurdson was first exposed to the public on the DVD "Letters From The Big Man." On the DVD was a bonus 42-minute documentary titled Sasquatch and Us: Where We've Been, Where We've Going. Kirk was one of only seven interviewed by the award winning director.

Ever wonder why sasquatches have yet to be scientifically accounted for, when any other animal in similar circumstances would have been documented long ago?  How about the way sasquatch phenomena tends to be so dramatically polarizing among researchers, almost to the point of fomenting a kind of religious extremism?  And why has centuries upon centuries of Indian wisdom (and warnings) on the subject been largely ignored?

Kirk Sigurdson, a professor of creative writing at Portland Community College, will examine cultural mechanisms at work in today's "scientific dictatorship." This approach should help to train some new light on the sasquatch question.

In addition, Sigurdson will discuss his novel, Kultus, which delves into the trappings of both legends and qualitative field research associated with forest giants.  The novel was written in the early 2000's, and then shelved--due in part to supernatural events beyond the author's control.

Kultus is scheduled to be published on October 31, 2013.   It will be available for purchase at
