Interview With Bigfoot Researcher Thom Cantrall


Thom Cantrall has been around the block a time or two in the bigfoot world. The thing that got Thom interested in bigfoot was the incident with Jerry Crew.

  1. Wasn't the Jerry Crew story revealed to be BS by the family of Ray Wallace after Ray Wallace died?

    1. "If anyone still has any doubt as to Long’s motive and they think that he wasn't on a witch hunt from the very beginning, let me share just one more thing worth your consideration. On page 442, Greg Long wrote about the death of Ray Wallace. Wallace owned a construction company that was involved in building a road in Northern California in the late 50’s. Long reminds us that it was Jerry Crew who was the bulldozer operator for Wallace who had found giant tracks on the ground around Wallace’s construction equipment. Long goes on to tell the reader how after Ray died, the Wallace family told how Ray would go around pulling pranks on people by wearing some wooden fake feet carvings he had in his possession. Greg Long ends the Wallace story by saying, “And so the Bigfoot film legend, which enjoyed a long and lively run, is now completely dead.” In typical fashion, Greg Long didn't even bother to check any of the basic facts surrounding the actual subject matter. I have to assume that Long never knew that because such large tracks were being found on the Wallace construction site, Ray was reported to be having trouble keeping workers on the job. Maybe I should point out that construction company’s work on a deadline and it makes little sense to me that Ray Wallace would want to sabotage his own living."

    1. You'll notice at the bottom of the link here;
      http://www.bigfootencounters.com/images/wallace_comparison.htm

      ... That none of the most significant Bigfoot casts from Northern California (including Bluff Creek 1967) match the stompers Wallace's family claimed he’d used after his death. It’s thought that maybe they wanted to distance Ray and themselves from any enthusiasm of the subject. There is easily attainable photos of Wallace as a clear enthusiast with casts and witness claims.

  3. I think some researchers start out with good intentions. But when the funds dry up and interest wanes, They resort to hoaxing or highly questionable evidence to restore the flow. Desperate and dishonest attemps to acquire fame and fortune mostly do not end well. Once someone is branded a scammer, its all over.

    1. "Once someone is branded a scammer, its all over."

      It should be, but unfortunately, it often is not. Standing still gets an audience, and is on Netflix. Biscardi was still in the bigfoot world even after he perpetrated bigfoot BS. And these two aren't the only ones.

  4. Its all over for them in my book is what I should have stated. Sad but true there will always be people who will continue to be fooled. The newbies, the misinformed, the gullible with little discernment skills.ect ect. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. When they charge exhorbiant fees for expeditions, thats a big red flag to be wary of. A fool and his money are soon parted.

    1. “Go get a body!”

      And with what? People will complain that there is no body, and then rhetorically shun those trying to commit to doing just that, whilst trying to fund such research and put food on the table. Funds for research do not come from anywhere else. And at the end of the day, there are hominin in the woods of the US that people need educating about.

      So which one do you want? Do you want a body, or do you want to suggest people are restricted in looking for a body?

    2. And people are only being fooled, if they are being hoaxed.

  5. Neither, What im trying to imply is if your are doing research or leading expeditions. Abide by a Code of ethics.
    1-acquire the necessary permits and obey rules and regulations if on federal/state/or other lands.
    2-Dont make promises you cant keep or exhorbiant claims with no evidence to back it up.
    3-Dont steal other peoples information,research or research areas and claim it as your own.
    4-Keep fees and any other charges within reasonable and customary limits.
    5-Be sure to abide to all tax laws.
