Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching

Submitted by on February 15, 2013 – 7:50 AMNo Comment | 699 views

Greg Newkirk and his team at Who Forted could hardly have planned a better time to release for free viewing their own experience in hunting for Bigfoot in the hills of New York State.

Here is the trailer

“I think we’re going to find him, and I think we’re going to be the first ones in America to do it.”
- Bigfoot Hunter, Tim Holmes

The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching, shot in the summer of 2006 during two Sasquatch hunting expeditions in the rural hills of down-state New York, follows the often hilarious, sometimes nerve racking, and always fascinating search of two prominent Bigfoot hunters from the New England region.

Tim Holmes, ex-merchant marine and founder of the Southern Tier Bigfoot Watch, together with his partner Becky Sawyer, a no-nonsense Sasquatch tracker, take to the forests of the tri-state area in a search for the elusive monster, followed by the cameras of a group of young adventurers, many of whom are now the amateur journalists of Who Forted? Magazine and the cast of the upcoming documentary web series Planet Weird.

During the expeditions, the evidence captured on film surprised not only the crew, but two seasoned Sasquatch investigators. Though the film undoubtedly focuses on the North American Man-Ape, the big hairy guy takes a back seat to the bigger personalities of Tim and Becky, who are obsessed with the search for Bigfoot, albeit in very different ways. It’s a film that begs the question, “what matters more, the journey or the destination?”

After disseminating only a few hundred of the official DVD copies of the film to the backers of Planet Weird last year, we’re thrilled to finally have the completed film available to stream online. It was, since it’s inception, a low-budget labor of love six years in the making. Shot for less than $50 on a couple of Handycams that we promptly returned to Wal-Mart after shooting, the film is a glimpse at a moment in time, a time long before shows like Finding Bigfoot had made Sasquatch hunting a living room affair.

We hope you enjoy our little side project, and at the very least have a good time laughing at the sheer absurdity of a weekend in the forest with Tim Holmes. He’s a Bigfoot hunter unlike no other. His appearance in this little film, unsurprisingly, even ended up landing Tim a spot on Spike network’s series Ten Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty (until he was unceremoniously canned at the last minute). After watching Still Searching, I’m sure you’ll realize what a huge mistake that was. Don’t worry though, I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of Holmes.

By all means, please let us know what you thought about the film. You can tweet us @WhoForted, discuss it with us on Our Official Facebook Page

Less a documentary about the search for Bigfoot than about the psychologies and personalities of those who search as seen through the honestly confused perceptions of people who are just curious enough to go find out what is really happening in the woods. “The Blair Witch” was never so funny.

So head on over to Who Forted and check out the full length

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.
