Just for the record, how do we know what a BF sounds like since we can't find the creature to begin with?

I can only say that the recordings (like the Serria sounds), have been analyzed by voice experts and nothing on record matches. The incredible chatter has been analyzed too and found to have the characteristics of a language. When similar howls or chatter are found, they are compared to the ones we already have stored and if they have similar ranges and cadence, it is a logical assumption it is from the same type of creature. That is far from proof but this field is all about finding and linking puzzle pieces.

In regards to this recording, the woman has been trying for a long time with 20,000 hrs. of recordings! Thats incredible and wonder if that is a typo. Anyway, persistence seems to have paid off with this catch. It sure sounds like what we have heard before as suspected BF calls. They do imitate other animals (if what researchers say can be believed), and those calls sound like they are traveling a long way. I heard chatter and a whistle too, which has also been attributed to BF. I am believing this one.

Silly, every sound in the woods is Bigfoot, hear that owl, nope, Bigfoot...... lot of coyotes out tonight, guess what, yep all Bigfeet.....crickets? also Bigfoot ..... and if you want to be sure just take a pic of the darkest, most unfocused clump of brush you see, and then look at the pic for the blurriest blob you can find and you got a pic of bigfoot...... Im actually starting to question if any other animals actually even make a sound, maybe they are all quiet cause they are scared of bigfoot..........:)

I've learned to take the analysis and opinion of "experts" with a grain of salt. A film expert (Bob Shell), a forensic pathology expert (Cyril Wecht), and a film industry special effects expert (can't remember his name) all told Art Bell the alien autopsy film of the mid 90s was authentic.

I've not seen any evidence that Santilli's tale of hoaxing the film is true. It's all just talk. If Santilli is a hoaxer then he is a liar. So, which version is true and which is false? And, his cohorts wouldn't be any more trustworthy than he.

Santilli is a businessman. Couldn't someone have simply made him an offer he couldn't refuse to claim it was all a hoax? If the film was real and somebody wanted to cover it up, isn't that what they would do? What else could they do?

I've never heard Santilli admit the hoax, but I have heard producer Spyros Melaris do so in detail. I guess it's all a question of who you believe.

I grew up in Ohio and near Minerva, OH (probably a couple hours drive away from Loudonville) there is a stone quarry where a bigfoot was thought to live (or at least frequent) for many years ... but that was more in the 80's and 90's.

just like the sites that grab the art contest pics and claim them to be real....or the patterson/gimlin film....morris costumes claim that they made the suit for patterson...that claim is even on their website....lol.... but people are gonna believe what they want.
