Bigfoot Burger Pit

Bigfoot Drive-In Burger Pit in Oakhurst, CA

This historic photograph was found on The Studebaker Drivers Club Forum and was posted by user “kurtruk” with the following information: 

Bigfoot Drive In Burger Pit was in Oakhurst, Ca on Hwy 41. Closed in the early 1980’s. Former MLB pitcher Rudy May owned the property and was going to build another restaurant on the site but never did AFAIK. Restaurant had a few yellowed newspaper clippings, and a casting of a Bigfoot “footprint.”

What I would like to know is whatever happened to that footprint cast?  Was it a copy or an original?  Where and when was it cast?  Do any of my readers have any information on this?  If you find out anything on this, or already know something about this, please contact me!

After a very long wait, I am very happy to announce the next season of Finding Bigfoot is scheduled to air starting January 8, 2017!  To everyone’s pleasure, we will be back on Sunday nights at 9 pm, just like old times.  

This season will feature expeditions to new locations, as well as follow-up investigations to some states we’ve been to before.  There will be a couple 2-hour episodes thrown in as well!  

Set you DVRs for Sunday night, January 8, 2017 for the 2-hour season premiere, but be sure to keep your eyes open for the ones you’ve missed leading up to the starting event!  The schedulers at Animal Planet like to do those Finding Bigfoot marathons leading up to season openers, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they do so again this year!

SNL Gives a Nod to Finding Bigfoot

On the December 3, 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live, a sketch about tracking down former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had a familiar look.  The font, screen shots, and references to bigfoot all come straight from Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot.  Instead of whoops and knocks, the Hunting Hillary team utilized the distinctive laugh of Secretary Clinton and waited for callbacks.  

This is not the first time other shows have given a nod to Finding Bigfoot.  In 2012, South Park skewered us in their episode entitled Jewpacabra.  Soon after, Steven Colbert had the Finding Bigfoot cast members star in a comedy short on his former show, The Colbert Report.  And, of course, we have long been a favorite target on The Soup.

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of being interviewed by Brian Bull, Reporter/Announcer on KLCC 89.7 FM in Eugene, OR.  As sometimes happens with public radio affiliates, the larger NPR stations picked up the story and featured it on one of the popular national shows.  In this case, the excellent show, Here and Now featured Brian’s work.  You can listen to the feature by clicking this link.  

Recent Yowie Sighting in Queensland, Australia

A recent yowie sighting from near Toowoomba in Queensland, Australia has been reported and made the news.  The good folks at YowieHunters.com have posted their audio interview with the witness (see below).

Having done an expedition in Australia while filming Finding Bigfoot, I am 100% convinced that yowies are real animals, along with their diminutive cousins, the junjudee, or brown jack.  After having a close encounter with what I think was a yowie about an hour south of Brisbane, I suspect yowies are pretty much just another population of sasquatches that have somehow made it to the island continent.

The article that brought this sighting to my attention is below.  (Be aware that the footprint photo that is displayed with the article is not from the encounter, and no information about it was given.)

‘Seven-foot Yowie’ seen near Toowoomba

A bushwalker claims to have spotted the mythical Yowie in the Darling Downs’ mountain ranges near Toowoomba.

In an audio interview posted this week on The Yowie Hunters YouTube page, the woman says she was six metres away from Australia’s answer to the Himalayan Yeti and the North American Sasquatch.

“It was probably around seven foot tall, it had a head like a gorilla and long arms, I couldn’t see it from the waist down because it was walking through the long grass,” she said.
