Most Bigfoot hunters embark on their missions with nothing more than a solid stick for tree knocking, some smelly grub, and a practiced “whoop” to attract the hairy beast.
The crew from the new Travel Channel series Expedition Bigfoot (premiering Sunday, December 8 at 10 p.m.) is taking a markedly different approach, using “… new modern-day technology” and “…an advanced data algorithm and groundbreaking science and tools to analyze five decades of Bigfoot sightings and to pinpoint when and where to encounter this elusive beast.” These new-fangled devices are designed to finally capture convincing evidence of Sasquatch, pinpointing “…the time and place to search for evidence of Bigfoot.”
The team consists of Bryce Johnson (Expedition Operations), Dr. Mireya Mayor (Primatologist), Russell Acord (Ex-Military/Survivalist), Ronny LeBlanc (Bigfoot Researcher), and Ryan “RPG” Golembeske (Bigfoot Investigator). Over the course of eight episodes, the experts will embark on a “…three-week sojourn to an undisclosed, remote location in a 90,000-acre swath of land in central Oregon, they use the latest advanced technologies to narrow their search within the target zone. As the investigation intensifies, evidence that Bigfoot is in the area begins to pile up. Possible nesting sites, footprints and vocalizations lead the team to a hot spot where inexplicable events occur and one of the greatest pieces of video evidence in Bigfoot history is recorded. ”
Matthew Butler (general manager of the Travel Channel) is certain that the network “…has assembled the very best team of experts in Bigfoot lore and science to give us proof of the creature’s existence once and for all. The journey is formidable, and the jeopardy is real. Skeptics and believers alike will both agree the trek this team makes is something they have never seen before.”
