Sierra Tahoe Bigfoot Research

This site is dedicated to the research of bigfoot, and it's habitat, in the Tahoe and outlying Sierra region of Nevada and California. We listen to witnesses who want to talk about their experiences, and keep them confidential unless otherwise requested. Our mission is to learn as much as we can about the possible existence of the sasquatch, in the hope that we can all gather a better knowledge of the species, then ultimately, we as a race understand that it's habitat, and way of life, must be protected.

"Sierra Sasquatch" MonsterQuest Episode-Update

There has been quite a lot of interest, from readers, regarding the Sierra Sasquatch Episode of MonsterQuest. For those of you who haven't seen them, I've posted below, 3 newer, "behind the scenes" videos that Jaime Avalos has posted to YouTube, during the production of the episode. Great to see Dr. Jeff Meldrum involved in this episode, with Mr. Avalos.

Squatching Ethics, and Bigfoot Rights (Cont'd)

(Please read my first entry on this subject by clicking here, and more importantly, read Autumn Williams 5 Part Series by clicking here)

Before reading Ms. Williams' 5 part series, I'd been thinking... Actually, more like daydreaming about the perfect scenario, in my mind, about what I think would be "ideal proof." Proof, that would satisfy a majority of the scientific community, and a majority of the general public. Proof, without blood, or a capture.

Dr. Jane Goodall


I see a Goodall/Fossey-esk type interaction, recorded in clear video, mostly in daylight, over a few days or weeks. Footage showing the first contact, building trust, sharing gifts and/or food. Becoming accepted. All the while, collecting samples for DNA testing.

Dr. Dian Fossey

Autumn touched on this same "Proof" scenario in Part Five of her series. For me, the most important subject of all, is what to do with the new found evidence? What would the consequences be?

Squatching Ethics

My first thought is, for most researchers, proving the existence of Bigfoot is predominately egotistical. Without getting into a deep theological debate, besides proving the existence of Extraterrestrials, proof of the existence of Bigfoot, would be the most earth shaking scientific revelation, in the era of modern man. I'll admit, I sometimes think about what it would be like, to be the person who proves the existence of Bigfoot. My first thought is how proud my kids would be of me. Let's face it, my name would be immortalized, but to what end? Herein lies the dilemma. What would the discovery, and publicity, do to the Sasquatch?

What happens to almost every species of rare animal? My first thought, is they are usually hunted to extinction. Do a web search for "Dian Fossey Photos," or watch the movie, Gorillas in the Mist. You will see some extremely gruesome examples of what happened to the mountain gorilla. Every sicko trophy collector, from around the world, would come out of the woodwork, to get a literal "piece" of the Sasquatch. They would pay obscene amounts of money for Bigfoot trinkets, to put on their mantle.

Besides trophy hunters, every scientist, wannabe primatologist, and everyday yahoo (such as myself), would descend on the wilds of North America to catch a glimpse of the new found species. Paparazzi and TV producers will all want a piece of the action, because the world will be hungry for anything and everything Sasquatch. We are over populating the earth as it is, and encroaching on the wilds of the world by hundreds of thousands of acres a day. Can you imagine the thousands of "humans" that would be invading the Sasquatches habitat, on a daily basis? Sure, some sort of legislation could eventually be passed, laws to protect Bigfoot. Will it be in time? Obviously, wildlife poaching is a problem around the world. Laws don't stop poachers, they only slow them down a bit.

So, after my "warm and toasty" dissertation, on the evils of revealing Sasquatch to the world, would I actually release the evidence? I'd like to say, "No!" but I'm human. Would my ego, overpower my desire to be loyal to the overall well being of Sasquatch? I'd like to think so. Would optimism in the human race, transcend my fears, and have me believe that revealing Bigfoot to the world, would do more good, than harm? I'm sure I'll never have the need to make this decision, but I can't say that I don't want to either. Or, do I?

Something to think about if you're an active Squatcher.

What would you do?

Squatching Ethics, and Bigfoot Rights

Recently, Autumn Williams of, wrote a 5 part series entitled, "Bigfoot Discovery," which can be found on her Blog (click here). The articles cover such subjects as, "To prove, given the chance, or not to prove? What, ultimately, would constitute proof? What would a “proof” scenario look like? "To kill or not to kill?" and it's ramifications." Let us remember that Ms. Williams has 20 plus years of Bigfoot research behind her. I'm sure most of you are familiar with her work. If not, after you do some searching around, you will see that she is probably the most respected woman, if not person, in the field of Bigfoot Research. She's also produced and directed this documentary:

The point I'm trying to make is that, of anyone, Ms. Williams' devotion and experience, with anything "Sasquatch," makes her highly qualified to comment on such critical issues, regarding Bigfoot research and discovery.

For the aspiring researcher, such as myself, these articles touch upon the most critical subjects we must think about, before we ever venture out into Sasquatches' world, armed with technology, or lead, or both.

Please go to Autumn Williams' Blog, and click on "Part One" to begin a great read. I will follow up in the next day or two with my thoughts on these subjects.

In regards to "Bigfoot Rights," Cliff Barackman has touched on this important subject in this article, "Rights For Great Apes." (click here)

Rethinking Bigfoot Clapping and Vocalizations

Cliff Barackman has written a great article and posted it on his North American Bigfoot Blog. He revisits his hypothesis of Bigfoot clapping, in place of actual wood-knocking. He also reviews some recorded sounds of deer vocalizations. On a more recent expedition to Bluff Creek, he encountered some vocalizations of what he first assumed were Bigfoot. Now, after hearing these two deer vocalizations, he now thinks he may have heard deer, rather than a Bigfoot. This candid honesty is what makes me really respect Mr. Barackman. We all know, there are Bigfoot researchers out there who would make every excuse in the world, to say that their recordings are Bigfoot. Obviously, Mr. Barackman is looking for scientific data, not sensationalism.

Click here for an audio recording of what is believed to be a white-tailed deer.

Video of Roe Deer Bark:

The Roe Deer bark has me a little in awe, that such a small deer, can make such a powerful sound. In respect to the white-tailed deer vocalization, on the audio description, it states, "Confidence in ID: Not certain." Does this mean that it is only an assumption that it is a deer? NY itself has quite a bit of Bigfoot activity. Only a thought on my part. If anyone has heard and/or seen white-tails make these type of vocalizations, I would really appreciate feedback, at

Thanks again to Mr. Barackman for all his great work.

VIDEO: Possible Sierra Sasquatch Monsterquest Episode?

I'm very excited about this!

Bigfoot researcher, Jaime Avalos, recently posted an interview with a vacationing couple from the U.K. who helped attain some ariel footage for a possible Monsterquest episode, that Jaime referred to as "Sierra Sasquatch." I'm not in touch with Mr. Avalos directly, but will keep you up to date when I hear, or see anymore updates on the possible Monsterquest episode. I'm sure Mr. Avalos will follow up with more details soon.
