From the Nite Callers youtube channel:
David Sidoti started this research back in 1995, doing basic armchair research, reading thousands of eye witness reports and reading various books so he could learn about these incredible creatures based on reported eye witness accounts.He began field research in 1998 and now has over 20 years’ experience with research, most of that field work. As a child at age 7,Dave and his brother use to play in the woods every day. There was no staying inside unless it was raining or homework. They loved being outdoors,exploring the woods and building forts. Dave loves going camping, hiking, kayaking, and honing his survival and tracking skills.Dave has a great love for animals. For the past 6 years he began an interest in survival skills useing in his day to day life. Like many researchers Nite Callers has interviewed, Dave became interested in researching these creatures is when he and his brother watched the Patterson/Gimlin film on a show called “In search Of” back in the late 70’s and the docudrama of The legend of Boggy Creek. Dave joined with a large group in 1998, investigating eye witness’s encounters, then left that group after a year.In 2000 Dave founded the research team called Independent Sasquatch Research Team (ISRT) www.ISRTUSA.com, and it’s still going strong today. The ISRT is developed for people who want to work with other independent researchers with a common goal. The team only works with legit researchers and the scientific academic realm that has immaculate credentials. ISRT team and many others in the near future are affiliating with each other as a network of INDEPENDENT organizations willing to share their research in hopes of solving this mystery.
