Kathy Strain on Call Blasting

Nice to hear from someone who has been committed to the search for 20 years and yet is undeterred by not having come across much. I’m probably in the first of 20 such years myself.Nominay

in regards to the following video that was posted here: Update: Calling Bigfoot: Will He Answer?

Kathy Strain responds:

We just got back from an expedition. Call blasting was the heart of it and we would not have gotten what we did without it (no bodies or DNA – to quell any rumors). I don’t know in particular what Nominay is referring to, but we have come across quite a bit with our work. There is no disappointment at all.

The call blasts we use have a signature “added” sound that ensures that other humans hearing it will know it’s a recording vs. live. I have no fear in my remote area that “other” bigfooters are operating/call blasting without my knowledge.

I think what should be emphasized is that researchers are free to pick and choose their own methods. What works for them may not work for someone else. If you think something new will work, you should try it. We have tried children laughing and cooking smells (along with many, many other things). Call blasting has been one of the few consistent methods that we feel produces results.

    Kathy is a very nice person, I used to live very close to her in Twain Harte and had I known about her and her husband then, I would have most definitely tried to go squatching with them. I myself have heard strange screams at night from my front yard coming from across the mountain when I lived there. My cousin who doesn’t believe, said it was only a mountain lion. I’m a city boy all my life, so I would have to defer to him, but man it was strange.

    Hello Kathy, it’s good of you to take the time to respond to our comments. What do you define as “results”? Actual sightings, having something call back, ect. Just wondering. Thanks.

    Shortly after the Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot show began, I received many reports through my website from people stating they are hearing tree knocking sounds and strange vocalizations from their surrounding woods. Interestingly enough, two reports came from the same neighborhood. After investigating the reports, each neighbor had watched the Finding Bigfoot show and each independently tried tree knocking and crude call blasting techniques. So each neighbor was hearing the sounds the other neighbor was making, this is going to be happening all over the States as long as Animal Planet’s show Finding Bigfoot airs. When these reports come in I politely tell them to send the report to the BFRO and that the BFRO would get in touch with them. Now every vocalization heard and or recorded must be suspect because Animal Planet and the BFRO are deceiving the public that the sounds edited into the show are from actual Bigfoot creatures. I want to see the video of the creatures making those calls! Hopefully they will post a disclaimer to that effect in the future. From now on, I won’t be spending any of my valuable time following up on strange animal calls because most calls are most likely being made by people who watch the Animal Planet show.

    “The call blasts we use have a signature “added” sound that ensures that other humans hearing it will know it’s a recording vs. live.”

    Wouldn’t the animals be able to detect the false note in the calls as well?

    I second wolfatrest. What is she getting from her expeditions?

    One of the biggest problems I have with the bigfoot community is that everyone plays the “I got a secret” game. Share the info! Science only advances when information is free.
