A few things from my perspective:
First, the acting/dialogue. The woman is quite annoying, but to be quite honest it seems nearly identical to shooting trips I would go on with my
parents when I was a kid. Usually dad would be the one loading/handling the firearms and mom would be giving "moral support" if you will. A little
kid like that shooting, what appears to be, a 12ga shotgun is no small feat, so I wouldn't be surprised to hear her asking if he is OK. So drawing
from my personal experience, the peoples behavior and dialogue don't appear to be fake.
Second, a few people have noted that they did not react to the helicopter. Watching the video a few times I see the man (assuming the father) look UP
at the helicopter 3 times. So they did indeed acknowledge the presence of the helicopter. Whether or not there actually was a helicopter, or this was
all an elaborate plan and they added the sound after I do not know, but it's obvious to me the father and the girl are looking up at the helicopter.
People also are mentioning the father is looking in the direction of the supposed bigfoot. I do not see this at all. I see him looking at the daughter
a few times, which would make perfect sense. If you are out shooting with your kids, you would want to keep a constant eye on the one not shooting to
make sure they don't get anywhere near the line of sight for the shooter. That seems like all the father is doing, to me at least. In addition, if
this was a hoax, why would the father be so stupid as to LOOK at the bigfoot they supposedly didn't see until after viewing the footage? That would
seem like a huge slip-up that someone putting this much effort into a hoax wouldn't make. Or at least if they did make that mistake, you'd think
they would re-film it, as it's not exactly a long video and re-filming it wouldn't be any more difficult than the first run.
The actual bigfoot itself I am not going to comment on. From the distance it was seen trying to deconstruct the gait or size of the creature seems
futile. And obviously if bigfoot really does exist, nobody knows what it walks or runs like, so saying "OH he isn't running like a real bigfoot
would" means absolutely nothing in my book. Just like saying "OH that doesn't look/act/move like an Alien!" As if anybody would know.
As you could probably tell, personally I don't see anything in this video that jumps out as obviously making this a hoax. Nobody seems to be doing
anything odd, the dialogue isn't any different than what I remember as a child while out shooting. I don't typically comment on these kind of videos
because it seems everything I would have said is already posted in a thread, but in this case I felt I had to come out and "defend" the video,
because some of the reasons people are calling this fake are nonsense in my opinion.
So until someone does some audio analysis and figures out the helicopter sound was added, or video analysis to figure out the bigfoot is CG, or the
family comes out and admits this is a fake, then I honestly can't see how anyone could absolutely state this as a fake, let alone ridicule the video
or posters in this thread who support the video. Keep an open mind until you have reason not to, and in this case nothing is out of the ordinary. Just
because your family doesn't talk/act like that doesn't mean someone's doesn't.
And before I get accused of being blinded by my bigfoot support, I actually don't have strong feelings on the whole bigfoot thing at all. If it
doesn't exist, nothing to see and move along. If it does exist, that would be pretty cool but honestly not anything groundbreaking IMHO. After all it
would just be a previously unknown species of ape, which while definitely interesting doesn't carry the same weight as discovering proof of Aliens or
something else along those lines.
So think what you will with regards to this video, but personally I can't see how any non-biased person could come out and declare this a fake/hoax
as of now.
