Bigfoot TV shows are a waste of time

BIGFOOT TV shows and series are simply a waste of time.
These shows rarely uncover anything new and are more about hype and suspense about essentially nothing.
A friend and Bigfoot expert of mine has tons of compelling stories and locations to explore in Ogden Valley. However, he said when he contacted one of the Bigfoot TV shows they had no interest in it.
"They miss important stuff," my friend said.
Bigfoot shows (an even ghost-type shows) miss the mark in my opinion, because they try to sensationalize and create scenes to stir excitement, but then they really never have anything blockbuster to deliver. So, they are a lot of hype about nothing.
Bigfoot shows need to be more documentary oriented and less hype slanted.

Obituary: 'Bigfoot is safe'

The Ogden Standard-Examiner (Utah) recently contained one of those colorful obituaries, that is far less serious than most.
This caught my eye:
"Steven Paul 'The Duke' Ukena: Bigfoot is safe" was the headline on the man's passing.
"His death will change many things ... Bigfoot is now safe ... Santa can now deliver our presents without doning his bulletproof vest and the Easter Bunny is now free to hide eggs without dodging traps" was a key graph in the Jan. 6-7, 2016 published obituary.
Ukena was described as loving the outdoors, camping and fishing, but it is unclear what his actual stand on Bigfoot was.

'Bigfoot' is all over the Pacific Northwest

                         Bigfoot statues for sell at Trees of Mystery.

I recently took a long vacation that included Southern Oregon and Northern Washington. Although I didn't see or experience anything with an actual Bigfoot creature, I was amused as how often Bigfoot references showed up in places and attractions.
This is truly Bigfoot country ....
EXAMPLE: At the famous Trees of Mystery store on Highway 101 near Klamath, California, there were Bigfoot posters and statues galore for sell.
                              A large Bigfoot statue at Trees of Mystery.

EXAMPLE 2: North of Brookings, Oregon, someone had written on a trail to be beach sign to beware of Sasquatch.
EXAMPLE 3: In both California and Oregon, I often spotted Bigfoot statues or images at various business fronts.

American Fork Canyon: Another highly questionable Bigfoot video

Yes, another questionable Bigfoot video comes out in late February of 2015, this one sadly from my home State of Utah ... in the Tibble Creek Reservoir area of American Fork Canyon, Utah County.
The cameraman starts running around wildly after just a few seconds of footage and after that little is visible, with very jumpy, hazy footage.
You mean you had an actual Sasquatch in view and you ruin the footage by crazily running around? Very, very suspect to me.
(This video follows soon after the awful one from Yellowstone that looks fake...)
If it would have been me, I would have stayed put and obtained a minute or more of solid video first, before even considering trying to get closer, or a better angle.
Still, worse, is this even actual footage, given such a botched opportunity? You've got to wonder and I'm still not convinced of its authenticity, given the footage's poor quality.

A single photo is about all that's salvageable from this amateur video. Why did the poster even include all the running around footage? It makes them seem all the more unreliable.
I'm NOT adding this to my Bigfoot in Utah sightings list, as it is too short in detail too.
The cameraman doesn't include his name and that is a big red flag to me. So, you were supposedly convinced it was real, but you're not ready to stand behind it with even your first name? 
Also, When did you specifically shoot this video?
Nope, far more questions than answers to this so-called encounter.

Why can no one obtain solid video footage of a Bigfoot?
(I'm convinced they do actually exist, though to me they are supernatural, not some undiscovered animal.)

-You can watch the video and decide for yourself, but these are the flimsy and likely fake encounters that downgrade the entire serious search for Bigfoot.

-Cut and paste this link to watch the video:

Yellowstone Bigfoot Footage simply looks fake ...

I carefully watched supposedly raw footage taken from an automatic Web cam at Yellowstone National Park in early 2015.
However, to me the "Bigfoots" in the footage appear fake, walking like almost stick figures.
The buffalo in the footage look real and surely are so.
I personally believe Bigfoots are supernatural and almost impossible to film or photograph.
This just seems like another case of someone either pulling another Bigfoot hoax, or being so desperate to want Bigfoot to be real, that they resort to this kind of hokey pokey.

See the footage for yourself at:

Utah's first "Big Foot' report and the first mention of a Sasquatch

TODAY 'Bigfoot' is synonymous with an elusive creature of unknown origin.
However, more than a century ago and more than a half-century before the "Bigfoot" name would be coined for the Sasquatch creature, there was another "Bigfoot."
According to the Twin Falls News newspaper of Jan. 26, 1906, a Native American nicknamed "Bigfoot" was a renegade who led a Piute band of Snake Indians on area settlers.
-Utah's first reported "Big foot" was not a mysterious beast at all, either. It was a wolf. "Wily trapper seeks scalp of old 'Big Foot'" was a Sept. 5, 1919 headline in the Salt Lake Herald newspaper. The reward for killing the elusive wolf, who preyed on cattle and sheep in remote San Juan County, was $1,000. Some kind of foot injury gave the wolf a distinctive flatted foot and hence its "Big Foot" name.
-The first printed media mention of the word "Sasquatch" in Utah was in the Salt Lake Telegram of March 2, 1934. This WASN'T a sighting in Utah, but in British Columbia.
"Hairy Giant spreads terror in Canada. Appearance of wild man revives legend of vanished race of cave dwellers" was the headline off the United Press service.
The news report stated that there had been three sightings of the creature, called Sasquatch by the area's Native Americans, the Harrison area, east of Vancouver.
Area Indians said many years ago a whole tribe of the wild men lived in the region. They lived in caves and hunted with clubs and stones.
-The next media mention in Utah of Sasquatch was in the Provo Daily Herald of March 23, 1949. This report mentioned the creatures as living in the Ruby Lake area of British Columbia. The headline of the story was, "Tales from tall timber reported."

Fake Bigfoot stunts in Utah

FAKING Bigfoot sightings or footprints is one of the worst things possible against a true pursuit of the elusive creature.

The two worst incidents in the State of Utah are decades old. Hopefully, there won't be any more:

-"Dixie has a 'Bigfoot'" was an Aug. 13, 1977 headline in the Color County Spectrum newspaper.
According to the story, a young man, Ithamar Sprague, admitted to planting fake large footprints around town.
(-Ironically, less than 2 weeks later, the state's first big media reported sighting would happen in the High Uintas.) 

-"Bigfoot just myth, Prints prove it" was a Dec. 15, 1977 headline in the Salt Lake Tribune.
Some kids in Hunter City (now a part of West Valley City) faked footprints around town.
