A group of Boy Scouts in Tennessee have been on a four-year search for the elusive bigfoot. Recently their work caught the attention of the Finding Bigfoot crew who were filming in the area, and producers of the show paid them a visit to see what evidence they had collected so far. Check it out:
Deep in the woods of Robertson County, there’s a group of Boy Scouts on a four-year search for a large, hairy creature that’s attracted the attention of the national television program “Finding Bigfoot.”
Producers from the Animal Planet’s show, who have been scouting areas around Nashville to shoot an upcoming episode, paid a visit to Boy Scout Troop 454 at their den just west of Springfield on Sunday, Jan. 24 to see firsthand what kind Bigfoot evidence the boys had collected.
On Monday, Feb. 1, the network followed up and filmed scenes for a future episode of Finding Bigfoot, starring the scout troop and their Scout Master Joe Bilyeu.
Bilyeu said his troop has gone out on numerous expeditions, trying to find out if a Tennessee Bigfoot really exists. Each investigative adventure has consisted of camping, horseback riding, canoeing and cave exploring as they researched each reported sighting of the Sasquatch, Bilyeu said.
The troop has a collection of about a dozen unusual incidents in Robertson County they’ve discovered during their Bigfoot expeditions, said Bilyeu.
“We started about four years ago researching the Bigfoot sightings,” Bilyeu said. “Most locally have been along Sulphur Fork Creek where we discovered two large footprints and cast them with plaster.”
The footprints collected by the scouts are about 17 inches long and appeared along the banks of the Sulphur Fork Creek in western Robertson County, Bilyeu said.
The producers of the Animal Planet network have been surveying wooded areas in and around Nashville — not just Robertson County — to find the best reports to film, according to one of the show’s producers, Colin Peeples.
“We’ve had reported to us Middle Tennessee sightings that also include the Land of the Lakes, Cedars of Lebanon, and areas near the Tennessee-Alabama border,” Peeples said.
