We assume that these beings are similar to us, which they may not be. Yes, they may have 2 legs and 2 arms but we dont know what their capabilities are.
We go out looking for them with IR cameras to try and catch images of them on the trails in the forest, yet we dont know if they can see into the IR spectrum. If they can, it is like asking them to come into a spotlight of IR light to be photographed. How ridiculous is that? Maybe this is why we have not trail cameras which have caught them on film?
The programs I have seen about Bigfoot have been a camera crew and a few folks going out for a couple of days, but I feel that a serious search for Bigfoot will need to spend at least a week in the woods waiting and watching quietly like you would with a wild animal which had not been photographed. In my opinion most people have been searching for a quick-solution and have not thrown enough time and money at the problem to find a proper solution.
Like Jane Goodall and gorillas, with a good tracker and enough time we should be able to get the required photographs of them.

Bigfoot is one of the "classics" in cryptozoology, there is, as always not one evidence of his existence and at the same time thousands of stories about him. But why all this? Because it's in peoples nature to think "oh look, a spooky forest, must be a wild unknown creature in there...". You will find this phenomenon all around the world. Everywhere there are folks that tell their stories of monsters, and researchers will find "evidences" for what they were searching for.
It's true, there are things we don't understand now, but it's always the same old story of "believers" and sceptics.
When you go into the forest and look for Bigfoot, you'll definitely find something that looks like Bigfoot traces or even Bigfoot himself to you. But in reality it's just something very usual like a bear or a dear.
However, I don't want to say there is no Bigfoot, Sasquatch or something of that kind deep in the forests of the US, maybe will find him one day, but honestly, if I was him I would try to hide as long as possible from humanity. And besides there are so many hoaxes and fake evidences that it's really difficult to make proper scientific researches on that.
PS: please excuse my grammar, I'm from Austria (mention there are no kangaroos in Austria )
