Finding Bigfoot: “Hoosier Bigfoot” Tonight

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 4th, 2012

Premiering Sunday, March 4, 10PM e/p

The team travels to Indiana to investigate footage that purports to show a bigfoot in daylight. With sightings reported around Morgan-Monroe State Forest, the team lights up the sky in a new technique, to prove bigfoots do call the Hoosier state home.

Me and my family were driving around the Indiana Dunes yesterday near the state park. I went down State Park Boundary Rd. and I was showing my kids where you can almost always see deer standing right by the road. I was hoping to get some on video when we I saw something really strange in the woods. My camera takes pretty bad videos but you can see it. There was no one else around and no cars. Take a look for yourself.

What the! My wife told me I had to put it up on Youtube so here it is. Maybe some kids fooling around or someone was making a movie up there – but there wasn’t a car in either direction for a mile. Weird!IndianaDuneMan on Nov 23, 2008

Finally I got the cleaned up video back from my brother in law… You can see much better what we saw that day!IndianaDuneMan on Dec 13, 2008

From the Bigfoot Evidence blog:

IndianaDuneMan, the person who filmed the footage wrote this about the video:

Here’s the cleaned up version. We are still planning on going back out there with a cam, but it’s been way too cold lately. Probably around the holidays the wives will let us go some afternoon. Actually, they have been pushing us to go see again. My youngest girl is having nightmares still about that day.

Well, I agree that the video leaves something to be desired. Be that as it may, the proof is in the pudding when you hear my 4 year old start to cry, which is the main reason we left the scene. My wife was driving and was also freaking out a bit, understandably. Like I said before, we’re going to go out there again soon and look some more. In your experience, what should we be looking for?

I’ll let you know – we’ve been back several times scouring that area and haven’t found anything else yet.

Be sure to come back after the episode airs to share your thoughts about it with the other Cryptomundians!

    It looks interesting, but like so many other videos, it’s hard not to be skeptical.

    The pros: typical wooded environment, large, dark shape, definitely moving on two legs. Taken at pretty close range (maybe 50-100yds?), and we get a good still.

    The cons: not sure if I buy into the family chatter and banter. The girl cries on cue, and the creature seems to stop out in the open for one good shot. Not sure that the gait and walk is what I’ve come to expect either. It appeared rather human to me. It also squats or poses early on near the trees. Not sure what to make of that.

    Again, as I always tend to say, we need much more info on this before we can get an idea of whether we’re looking at a hoax or the real thing. Can the family take someone back to the exact spot to see if they can estimate distance and the possible size of the thing in the photograph? More details on the critter–as in descriptions from all family members, how long had the guy been filming. AND, was the end of the video we saw the actual end when he stopped filming? And if so, why?

    Ah these and so many questions…

    can’t wait should be a fun episode.

  3. pateriot responds:

    Are you kidding me? That video is sooooo fake! Wow I can’t believe that anyone is falling for this crap. It’s not in anyway convincing. Back to the blobsquatch blackboard for some faker.

  4. gridbug responds:

    Pure, unadulterated equine excrement. Exactly up FB’s alley.


  5. Mïk responds:

    About the show; FIREWORKS!?! Really?!? Let’s go find the most elusive animal in North America by setting up a campsite with people substitutes and radios blaring, then go out in the woods and blow off fireworks. That oughta bring ’em in. What ever happened to inconspicuous?

    I hope the show gives them time to do honest searches without 6 other guys following them around. I’m human and I would avoid the pack of urbanites yelling and dragging equipment thru the woods.

  6. Fred123 responds:

    If they had Razzies for bigfoot videos this one would be up for Worst Costume, Worst Cinematography, Worst Acting by a Bigfoot, Worst Acting by the Witnesses and of course, Worst Video. I’m surprised that Adam Sandler didn’t have a cameo appearance. Ironically the BFRO website has been currently running a little spot that suggests that it’s time to enact laws against hoaxes. Be careful what you wish for Matt, you just might get it, and I don’t think you want to spend the next twenty years rooming with Tom Biscardi.

    I’m waiting for the Stooges short with the guy in the gorilla suit to make it’s way to Finding Bigfoot. I can just hear Bobo and Matt saying in unison “It’s a squaaatch”. Maybe next season.

    Yeah, I know that Matt and his gang did finally give this little skit a thumbs down, but including this video in last night’s episode looked more like an attempt to address the viewers who keep asking themselves, “Is there anything these guys don’t think is a “squatch”?” than anything else.

  7. hoosierhunter2 responds:

    Well, at least someone is looking into Bigfoot sightings here. We do have a lot of them. Indiana tends to be overlooked for its Bigfoot sightings, unfortunately, but there are several that never get officially reported or never make it to the national level. Not long ago, I asked on a Hoosier based outdoorsman forum if any hunters had seen any unusual creatures here and got several stories of creatures they had encountered. There were some that were normal animals just not usually seen here, but there were a few Bigfoot stories too. The respondents said they hadn’t reported them for fear of ridicule. At least one, as I recall, was down around Hoosier National Forest. I grew up in Southern Indiana and there is still a lot of wild country down there. Plenty of places for something like Bigfoot to hide in.

  8. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    Wow. Now that’s some Ed Wood acting!

  9. graybear responds:

    Fireworks? Fireworks as an attractant for any kind of wildlife? Where do these people get these ideas?
    Obvious human voices howling at the moon,
    Recorded baby cries (hey, it worked for Tarzan),
    Now fireworks?
    Moneymaker et al probably need to exchange ideas with someone other than themselves.
    Next time, folks, be aware that to attract Bigfoot to fireworks you need to also have a Ferris Wheel and cotton candy.

  10. painted8 responds:

    I’m disappointed that they didn’t ask the little girl who reported seeing it when she went to feed her dog how the dog was behaving at the time. Was is agitated? Cowering? It might not have noticed the Bigfoot because it was upwind (downwind? don’t know the difference), but it seems that how the dog was behaving might add credence to the story.

    Fireworks? Really? For an animal they keep saying is highly intelligent, they keep treating it like an idiot.

  11. EnormousFoot responds:

    Hey next week lets start a forest fire! That will get the Sasquatch out of hiding!

  12. sasquatch responds:

    Yeah, the way the guy was crouching and everything was exactly how overzealous actors try to do apes. But, I guess apes DO crouch sometimes. But, why did it come out in the open right when they could see from car? I think Ranae brought this up.

    Firework, Baboons, baby dolls, yikes!…They’re really reaching, but still, I’ll tune in for the finale-Utah- close to my neck of woods…

  13. CDC responds:

    Yeah, Matt and his crew “Jumped the Shark” this week

    The unproven stunts they try from week to week makes me wonder if they think up stuff on the way to the location

    Last night’s episode was a CLASSIC Finding Bigfoot. Fake video, eyewitness reports, wild stories, the a pointless night in another forest.

    If this show is grabbing so many viewers, this could mean the end of the world is coming in 12/21/12…society has reached an all time low.

    An hour of absolutely NOTHING…and people watch. God help us all.

  14. cutrer responds:

    I agree with CDC. What kills this series for me is the hunters…. every little noise is a bigfoot to them.

  15. FindingBigfootHilarious responds:

    Hi there, I just need a place to share my amusement with this show. I’m not sure if Bigfoot exists, but this show does not take a serious look at whether it does, that’s for sure.

    I love the character structure. You have:
    -The leader. I love how angry and frustrated he seems to get when he is challenged rationally
    -The goofy sidekick. Says hilarious scientific facts like “Bigfoots love Jelly Doughnuts”.
    -The “pro” critical eye (the enthusiastic male) who seems to want to be critical but always concludes it’s Bigfoot
    -The “con” critical eye (female) who looks at things critically and calls things as they probably are. I think she is supposed to be the voice of the average viewer screaming at their TV at how silly the other three are. Always clashes with the leader, but is liked by everyone else.

    Do you think this show is kind of like MTV’s Laguna Beach, where it’s not “scripted” per se, but they do have roles they are supposed to fill? It’s too perfect otherwise.

    Either way, when I need to turn my brain off for a while, this show does the trick. The “facts” are my favorite.

  16. FindingBigfootHilarious responds:

    This show leads me to believe that at least some Bigfoot enthusiasts don’t REALLY believe it exists. I think much of it is about community, and going out into the woods, exploring, and having a good time. I realized this when the gang had a camp fire with songs, food, and drink under the pretense of drawing in a ‘squatch’. They were generally having fun, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that!

  17. CrytpobelieverinIdaho responds:

    The one comment MM made a few weeks ago in the show about the Bigfoot leaving cattle alone, because its our food, so we leave the deer alone is one of his most idiotic statements. So Matt why is Bigfoot not killing our cattle if they have seen us i am sure, kill deer. Hmm…

    And Bobo, you are not as enlightened as you try to act. Honestly, i am embarrassed for you with how you act on the show. The hippy vibe does not work with you.

    Cliff is great. He is in the middle.

    Ranae is great as well. Her and Cliff always try to calm MM and Bobo down and get them to be logical, when not everything is a sasquatch.

    I like the show, but the tactics used are not what they used to preach on the BFRO website.

  18. DWA responds:

    There it is, right there, under the 45th pixel from the top left corner, moving right.

    The more one sees, the stronger P/G looks.

  19. DWA responds:

    Next on Finding Bigfoot:

    We hear there are some great homebrews in Mena, Arkansas…!

    It’s more like “Random Pick Six Bigfoot.” It must be driven by the best local hangouts for the crew.

  20. Peltboy25 responds:

    It’s tough… I really, REALLY want to like these guys. But they’re just so inept. They should rename the show “REPELLING BIGFOOT”. I tuned in last year because I wanted to see some cool stuff. Now I tune in because I want to see how much dumber it can get.
