It would be neat to start a "Weird things in the Woods" thread. I had two strange incidences in the woods in Alaska when I grew up there and several "hair up the spine get the hell out of here" feelings too. This was before internet and reality TV shows.

I have a lot of respect for Les Stroud. And that is one of the reasons why I will give him the benefit of my doubts here.
Les Stroud is one of the few people I would give any credit too for all of his work on survivor man series on TV.

I was slightly weary about him getting into the whole BF research. After listening to his reasons, and how he is skeptical about slightly put my mind at ease.
I just have one issue with his story. In Alaska he said he heard something. A primate type of noise. When he went for his camera, that is when he said it bolted. Did he see anything? Or just simply hear it.
I am confused about this, as he suggests he saw something moving away from him.
He also suggested something about a large humanoid shaking trees. A slight change in his story.
But that could be on my end.
As I will remain a skeptic on BF, until further evidence comes forward.

I really like Les Stroud, and he has my up most respect. I would be highly disappointed and disillusioned if I where to find out he would be part of a hoax. Or doing it for ratings for TV show.
Deep down I feel Les Stroud is better than that, and he is the guy for the job to find BF.

I however do not give the benefit of the doubt to Todd, a known hoaxer. So I am slightly torn here.

I suppose only time will tell.
But its important to note Les Stroud comes across as an honest, logical thinking man. Who in my heart has no intentions on fabricating a yarn.
I think he would like to see a BF with his own eyes. Like up close, or try to communicate.

I just don't know.... I will have to keep an eye on these threads. And hope that if nothing turns up, then nothing turns up. Over having something show up, but only to be fake or hoaxed.
Les Stroud to me, is better than that. But that is my personal feeling. And perhaps my personal feelings might be clouding my judgement. As I am about 14-20% on the fence about Bigfoot.
There could be, and what is there to lose?
As long as the show does not turn into one of those paranormal type shows, I will give it a chance. But I feel or see the same patterns they use in paranormal reality shows. I will be very disappointed.

I watched the Bigfoot episodes with Les Stroud

Now Todd Standing, Les's Bigfoot chaperon says he puts apples all around even in hard to reach places for the Bigfoot's
So If Bigfoot's really likes his apples, then why not have a camera on the apples?
Is it just me or did anyone else wonder this?

not buying it.

misskat1 already did here: Tell Your Creepy Forest Story

If you haven't already, you should add your story(ies)! It's a great thread but the momentum has'd be nice to have some new stories added.

The show ends pretty inconclusively, at any rate, with Stroud remaining skeptical in spite of his own possible encounters. I think that's pretty fair. The evidence remains inconclusive. Maybe somebody will come up with something more definitive in the future. That would be cool. If not... oh, well.

Well said.

As its better to remain inconclusive rather than to show more fuzzy, can't make heads or tails of what you are seeing.
The videos Todd offers are just to good to be true.

The full face videos that Todd has of these "bigfoot" could very well be puppets. I am most likely willing to bet they where puppets. What say you Blue Shift?

Survivorman has no camera crew, this is in fact one of the main reason why I give so much credit to Les.
Its true. He is out there, just him, and his camera gear.

Now I am thinking. Maybe Les carries an extra energy bar in his pocket to balance out all that camera work. But over all. He is very creditable. And the show itself has taught me so much. Even if he has a hidden energy bar packed away, that would not dis credit him in my eyes.
But its important for those who have not seen the show. Know.. Its just Les.
I think 1 time he did one where he had his friend take part with him.
And the new one with his son.

Survivorman has no camera crew btw....he films everything himself.

Not saying I believe in Bigfoot, but figured I would let you know since you obviously haven't seen the show.

I have been checking out this website for over 2 years and just decided to join due to this show. It is filmed only have an hour away from where I live and about 15 mins or so from where I had my encounter. While I do believe in bigfoot the way Todd goes about it bugs the heck out of me. I don't like him but I do respect the fact that he is out there doing what I wish I could be but I wish he did it another way.

I watched them all and enjoyed them. I have the feeling les is out to see one with his own eyes. He wants to know the truth. I also think he has so much respect for them and the forests that they live in that even if he had great video footage he may not show the public. Like others said ,if it's proven it would change too many things for the worse. Also. They did put a camera pointed towards the apples. The apple seemed to disappear with a small blur in the bottom of the screen. The motion activation didn't come on in time which he said shouldn't have happened the way it did.other apples were eaten by known animals on video. Mysteries upon mysteries.

In 1977 I basically ran into a Bigfoot within maybe arms reach of him in the middle of an empty field in the middle of the night. I KNOW for a fact these animals live and are real.
I also know that this one stunk bad.

I wish Les the best. I hope he gets what he is looking for.

I was somewhat bemused watching the great survivalist struggling to get a campfire going with matches, butane lighter and paper lol.

His first ones with Standing were atrocious. These ones seem a little better, but he still struggles with basic logic and either doesn't appear to have the personal tools available to study such things objectively, or is pandering to an audience. As they say "that's entertainment" which is all that seems to be going on here. Does Les ever smile?

Looked for a while like he was veering in the "mystical bigfoot" direction, which will probably be getting closer to what the bigfoot myth is really all about.

The way he goes about the show and his exploring make the show better than all the others in my opinion.

I love love love mountain monsters, but its solely entertainment based

Survivor man doesn't have a camera crew. It's just him alone.


People STILL fall for the oldest trick in the book concerning "reality" TV???

To tell the truth I never watched a episode of this guy, in fact took me a minute to reacquaint myself and remember he is not the bear grills guy. I know they have similar shows, but cant comment on any of them.

I mean the show sounds interesting, and if he really is serious, who know maybe we may get some clear footage of bigfoot. Though bigfoot is a willy creature, and even if this guy is the worlds most adaptable human and woodsman, if there is a creature such as bigfoot out there. Chances are he would stand no chance of tracking it or that it would just run into him in the wild willy nilly.

But its been known to happen, so who knows. I would think that its way past time to at the very least get a more clearer picture of this elusive ninja of the woods known as bigfoot. And no I am not joking, I think there is a pretty good chance that bigfoot or something like it does exist somewhere out there. They must have a crazy breading patterns and who knows what to keep so aloof, in some ways if they exist they would be like the ultimate nomads both by there very nature and evolution and by necessity.

I think that Les just received his membership card from the BFRO and Mat Moneymaker.

I wonder if Les will start bigfoot expeditions for $3-500 per weekend like the BFRO. If you don't believe in BF it still sounds pretty lucrative to me.

I saw the earlier one he did up in northern Alberta, but I think that was a special. I'm not to shocked he saw bigfoot he's spent so much time out in the woods. I am a huge fan of survivorman and I gotta see some of this series later

posted on May, 16 2015 @ 12:24 PM
Just like I've said before, seeing a BF and a UFO is on my bucket list. I grew up in a high sighting area of eastern Kentucky and the only alpha predators that I've seen was bear and bobcats.

If you honestly think he is the sole person in production on site, for a reality TV show, you should familiarize yourself with how Hollywood and TV works.

Every reality TV show that has claimed to show things such as a single person surviving on twigs and mud in the wild. Has been busted.

Plus, Les Stroud of Survivor Man has teamed up with Todd Standing, considered by the Bigfoot community as a known hoaxer. This production is starting out lame to begin with. It's for TV ratings and money, nothing more.



While some of the scenes for Survivorman: Bigfoot are done with a camera crew, and Les always points out when this is happening, his filming for the Survivorman series and some of it for the bigfoot show are done when he actually is out by himself without a crew.

Trust me, I know that the rest of "reality TV" is staged but Les Stroud is the only honest reality TV presenter I've ever seen and he has never been "busted." He ventured down the bigfoot hunting path after encountering screams he couldn't explain on one of his Survivorman outings.

It's unfortunate that a few bad apples in the bigfoot hunting community have made their way onto the show, but that's the fault of the producers. Les Stroud is taking the most genuine approach to the subject that I've ever seen and I enjoy Survivorman: Bigfoot because of that fact.

I don't think he has seen one. He did hear screams on one outing, though.

I've watched every episode.

He approaches it from the right angle, I think.

He hasn't, so far as he knows, encountered Sasquatch; so he's open-mindedly skeptical. As he should be.

I wasn't too keen on his using a known hoaxer as an expert... But, meh...

It's a pretty good show.
