MANILA, Philippines - For centuries, eyewitness accounts and myths have fueled rumours that the legendary Bigfoot have roamed the forests in North America and other continents. In brand new episodes of FINDING BIGFOOT 2, Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) president Matt Moneymaker, research members James “Bobo” Fay and Cliff Barackman, and skeptical biologist, Ranae Holland continue their tenacious search in the United States, and this time, travel halfway across to world to Vietnam to track down the mysterious Yeren.
This time they use bass guitars, hog callers, bread and butter techniques as well baiting methods not for the fainthearted in their relentless attempt to separate fact from fiction in FINDING BIGFOOT 2, premiering on Thursday, April 11 at 10:00 p.m. Encores every Friday at 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and Saturday at 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.
Across eight new episodes, FINDING BIGFOOT 2 follows the team as they continue to scour North America and Asia to follow up on compelling evidence, new and old. The investigation kicks off in the Cascades of Oregon and continues in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, South Dakota, the Mountain State of West Virginia and a host of other Sasquatch hotspots in the United States. The search carries on in exotic Vietnam in search of the Wildman, a large, bi-pedal ape similar to Bigfoot in its ability to elude man. Although little is known about this creature, the country’s leading expert on the subject guides the team to Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, where they brave the dangerous jungle and stumble upon some unexpected surprises. When local villagers come forward with stories of their own encounters, the team narrows in on a potential hotspot and breaks out a popular bigfooting technique to prove that the Vietnamese Wildman is more than just folklore.
The folklore around Bigfoot has many doubters and many true believers, and passionate groups like the BFRO have formed to investigate stories, analyse evidence and strengthen their hypotheses of these elusive beings. Join the four passionate researchers as they persistently continue their one single-minded mission to track down these mysterious creatures. What will they eventually find? Find out in the following episodes of FINDING BIGFOOT 2:
In the winter of 2012, a dog walker stumbled upon a record number of Bigfoot tracks in the Cascades of Oregon, seventy of which were cast and documented by team member, Cliff Barackman. To get to the bottom of this, the FINDING BIGFOOT team returns to Cliff's home state to meet with eyewitnesses in hopes of finding out where these creatures are right now.
The team travels to South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to meet with a retired police chief who investigated numerous reports of a possible Bigfoot running through town. In an area rich with Sasquatch history, the team meets with compelling witnesses from the Lakota Sioux, to determine where to focus their search efforts. After zeroing in on a hotspot, the team is granted special access to a plot of private land where they just might find the Lakota's legendary Tall Man.
The team heads to the Mountain State of West Virginia to investigate photographs from a young bigfooter. In a state rich with Bigfoot history, the team meets with recent eyewitnesses and discovers deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) evidence that may prove this creature's existence once and for all. To obtain the photographic evidence they hope for, the team deploys a baiting technique not for the faint of heart.
Bigfoot And The Redhead
The team travels to Pennsylvania to investigate a video shot by two teenage boys that may show a Bigfoot walking in the background as they rode go-karts. In a state rich with Bigfoot sightings, including the famous Jacob's photos of 2007, the team assembles a town hall meeting to source out some of the more recent accounts and narrow down their search. Their efforts lead them to an ideal location in the Allegheny National Forest, where they deploy an unusual technique to try and elicit a response from an east coast Bigfoot.
Bigfoot Loves A Barbeque
The team travels to Connecticut to investigate video footage of a possible Bigfoot captured by a mother recording her children at play. In one of the most populated states per square mile, the team is challenged to pinpoint just where and why Bigfoots would roam this small state. With help from a handful of witnesses, they narrow in on a potential location, where they attempt a bread and butter bait technique to try and lure in any Bigfoots nearby.
It is off to the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee to meet with the owner of several trail camera photos that may show a Sasquatch living in these mountains. After a promising first night out, several credible eyewitnesses and Matt’s own investigation of the mountains surrounding Knoxville lead the team to a potential hotspot for Bigfoots. In one final push, the team enlists the aid of professional hog callers in hopes that their squeals will attract a hungry Bigfoot.
Bigfoot The Friendly Ghost
The team heads to Southern Illinois to interview a local researcher who claims to have recorded Bigfoot howls in his own backyard. After examining the evidence, they meet with recent eyewitnesses who claim to have seen these creatures in some unusual locations. In one final push, Cliff breaks out his bass guitar in hopes of enticing a curious Sasquatch to come in for a closer look.
Jungle Bigfoot (premieres Thursday, May 30 at 10:00 p.m.)
The team journeys to exotic Vietnam in search of the Wildman, a large, bi-pedal ape similar to Bigfoot in its ability to elude man. Although little is known about this creature, the country’s leading expert on the subject guides the team to Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, where they brave the dangerous jungle and stumble upon some unexpected surprises. When local villagers come forward with stories of their own encounters, the team narrows in on a potential hotspot and breaks out a popular bigfooting technique to prove that the Vietnamese Wildman is more than just folklore.
