Finding Bigfoot: How to Sound Like Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on January 6th, 2012

In this web exclusive, the Finding Bigfoot team explains what kinds of sounds sasquatches might make. They even demonstrate a few of them. Whose call is the best?

  1. sasquatch responds:

    CAN YOU GUYS PLEASE do one episode where you stay quiet? This racket stuff obviously is NOT working.
    Take for example the last show, or any show for that matter-NONE of your “Eyewitnesses” was ever making “bigfoot sounds” when they had their encounters.

  2. fuzzy responds:

    Be sure to let it run after the first one… there’s a few more short videos from season 1

  3. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    How do you know whose is the best? By who finds the most Bigfoot? If so, my call is as good as any, I haven’t found a single one, either.

  4. Mahalo X responds:

    This show used to really make me mad. I now realize that it is all about $$$$. As long as they continue to make themselves look so foolish; I don’t have to worry about what they’re doing in the name of “science”. The worst part is that they think they are scientists, and that howling like idiots is somehow doing something besides scaring all the fauna within earshot.

  5. gridbug responds:

    Okay, I get that siteclicks = revenue. But seriously, is Cryptomundo gonna pimp every single little thing that has to do with this miserable show just to keep the hit counts up? I know the show has it’s supporters (and I weep for mankind at the thought) and let’s face it, legit Bigfoot news is just not as readily available as we all wish it was, but when every other post here is about the Moneymaker Comedy Hour, it diminishes the credibility of this site. The majority of your readership doesn’t want to be associated with moronic reality television hijinks, and we come here because we believe that Cryptomundo is saggital heads above most other crypto sites (and it is). I’d hate to see this place sink into the miasma of mediocrity while simultaneously lumping those of us who really give a damn into the category of “rubbernecking tourist”. More integrity and legitimate posts please. We have future generations to educate here.


  6. Craig Woolheater responds:


    Not everything on the site is serious and/or scientific.

    I get it, you don’t like Finding Bigfoot. But there are people out there that do.

    The posts on the site that are about the show are clearly labeled as such.

    I offer some advice, don’t click on those…


  7. TheBeardedMan responds:

    Sasquatch (guy who first commented) is right. Well, obviously. I would think the trick to encounter one is to not let it know you are there. You just stay quiet and sit tight in one place. Maybe on a tree stand or something to keep your scent off the ground. Seriously, there are so many tactics one could use to possibly encounter this elusive beast yet the team seems to keep on relying on useless methods that only scare away not only sasquatch, if it exists, but pretty much everything else. I believe the key is thus to be a “hidden animal” yourself if you truly want to maximize your chances.

  8. Fred123 responds:

    I’m begining to think that Cryptomundo should split into two different sites. One that takes cryptozoology seriously and one that’s devoted to things like “Finding Bigfoot” and “Alaskan Redneck Sea Monster Hunters” that seems to be more interested in creating the next Matt Moneymaker than in a serious investigation of cryptids.

  9. DWA responds:

    OK, end of Round One.

    Round Two: Dragging ducks and geese underwater by their feet!

  10. DWA responds:

    One morning about one a.m. on the Ghost Road in east Texas, I got out of the car and really cut loose.

    I was hoarse for like a month.

    But I won this competition, let me tell you.

    It was the Domination Call. They are well known to do that. Not one came within one, maybe even five miles of me. I know what I am doing.

  11. squatchwatcher responds:

    Man, some people on here need to really lighten up. Like Craig said, if you don’t like Finding Bigfoot don’t click on the post. Haven’t you guys ever heard the saying, “there’s no such thing as bad press”?

  12. Fred123 responds:

    If the picture of Bobo that accompanies this article doesn’t generate a good laugh among the skeptics I don’t know what will. Without repeating the “neck” word that probably kept my first post on this thread from being posted, I think that it’s time to seperate the Colemans from the Moneymaker wannabees on this site.

  13. Fred123 responds:

    It seems that my neglected comment was posted as I typed the second comment. My apologies for suggesting that my frst post was censored by the site.

  14. dharkheart responds:

    Who has the best call? Probably MM when he calls the bank.

    Seriously, the yelling has not produced and tangible results; screams “in answer” can be from anyone/anything. Remain stealthy, use better science and continue the search.

    @ Fred: “I’m begining to think that Cryptomundo should split into two different sites. One that takes cryptozoology seriously and one that’s devoted to things like “Finding Bigfoot” and “Alaskan Redneck Sea Monster Hunters” that seems to be more interested in creating the next Matt Moneymaker than in a serious investigation of cryptids.”

    This is exactly the point I was making. To the “rest of the world” cryptozoology is a silly pastime with no discernible merits, aside from some occasional entertainment value a’la the Great Biscardi Freezer Hoax and other such sideshow stupidity. Even when mainstream news outlets run stories on this subject, 99% of the time they do it with a smirk and a wink.

    Point being, programs like Finding Bigfoot are NOT doing us any favors. Sure it’s entertainment, and yes it seems to have found its audience. But as is evidenced in these posts (and all others on this site) there are two clear camps here: those who want to (and probably do) believe that these creatures are out there and are enthusiastic about serious study and the furthering of serious and well-grounded theories being presented to the general public, and those who like to get a good laugh at the expense of “wacky Bigfoot hunters” and their goofball antics. Posting articles and anecdotes about Finding Bigfoot might gain Cryptomundo some new traffic, but in the end it comes down to quality vs quantity. The Mainstream Ridicule Machine doesn’t need any new ammo, yet Finding Bigfoot and it’s merry band of moneymakers does exactly that with each subsequent episode. It’s also very telling that some of the harshest ridicule comes from within the dedicated crypto-community, and not just on this site.

    None of this is meant to disrespect the moderator(s) of this page. For myself (and all of us I’d wager) is a welcome stop in the electronic sea of nonsense that is the Internet. I just hope it manages to keep its dignity while shows like Finding Bigfoot continue to erode the progress and goodwill we work so hard to achieve. It’s one thing to step in a big ol’ steaming pile of squatch, but it’s something else entirely to deliberately track it all over your carpet.

    Thanks for the opportunity to post this, and double thanks for leaving it posted.

    Fred123 & gridbug,

    Again, Cryptomundo is not a serious scientific research site, although serious scientific research as it applies to cryptozoology is a frequent topic here.

    Cryptomundo is a blogsite that explores humor, news, opinions, as well as research.

    All topics may not appeal to all readers. Feel free to explore the ones that appeal to you and ignore those that don’t.

    While they may not appeal to you, there are other readers that they do.

    Peace, Craig

  17. DWA responds:


    While I understand Craig’s point – and Cryptomundo is all about the fun of crypto – I don’t believe that “there’s no such thing as bad press,” and things like Finding Bigfoot are why. They do much to dampen scientific enthusiasm.

    Come on, scientists. It’s an uphill road. But I have to admit that the whole circus being available has given me unexpected opps to learn and comment. Live and let live, I guess.

  18. EnormousFoot responds:

    How about an article “How to Swim like the Loch Ness Monster” next?

  19. Sincero responds:

    How to sound like a Sasquatch.

    1) Find Matt Moneymaker.
    2) Put camera in front of his massive, expressionless face.
    3) Make any noise at all.
    5) $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
