Despite countless “Bigfoot” sightings all over the globe, no one has ever captured the creature popularly known as Bigfoot.
Now, a New Hampshire company, The Granite State Paranormal Society, an organization that investigates the paranormal, has put together a team of scientists that have developed very special technologies that will be used in a Bigfoot Expedition that will take place in a swampy area that looks prehistoric, in the vicinity of Paris, Texas from March 28th to March 31st, 2007.

Bigfoot explorer C. Thomas Biscardi, Founder of Searching For, headquartered in Menlo Park, California will lead the expedition.

The expedition will be open to the public and journalists on a fee basis. The Granite State Paranormal Society will handle reservations and expedition details.

Searching For Bigfoot, Inc., in association with Big Cat Productions, plans to develop a new reality TV series, “Capturing Bigfoot,” based on Searching for Bigfoot, Inc.’s latest expeditions to find and bring “Bigfoot” home alive. This new series, which will feature cutting-edge high technology equipment designed to locate, capture and contain Bigfoot, will be produced, directed and written by Ron Lyon and Jenny Paschall, whose collective creative credits include ABC-TV’s “Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” Discovery Channel’s “Would You Believe It!!” as well as Travel Channel’s “Most Haunted in America” and “Strangest Remains”.

“Capturing Bigfoot” will be a co-production with Searching for Bigfoot, Inc., headed up by Tom Biscardi, founder of Searching for Bigfoot, Inc., in Menlo Park, California, ( Biscardi will be joined on the expedition by his search team, as well as leading academics and amateur participants who believe they can handle the challenge.

The television series will be based on the upcoming March 28th expedition and a series of future Bigfoot expeditions currently being planned around known Bigfoot migration routes. Bigfoot is a migratory creature“ according to Biscardi, ”so whether we capture one on the Paris, Texas expedition or not, they will continue to seek out additional creatures to find out more about them"

“The key to capturing a Bigfoot is knowing where to look and how to catch one,” according to Biscardi, “and after all our expeditions over the past two years,” we think we know where the best places are to look for one, and now we have this new technology that will help us locate, capture and contain this elusive creature"

Two different scientists developed the technology that Biscardi is talking about. Dr. Ron Milione, Ph. D., of Huntington, New York, developed the locating technology. Milione developed two devices. One is a special helmet system that will deliver real time audio and video data back to a command center. It uses a special infrared camera system that uses an infrared array that will project out to a large distance. Several trackers will go out into the field at night with these helmet systems. In addition, several more electronic and tracking devices will be mounted along known game trails, watering holes and other locations where footprints and other evidence of Bigfoot creatures was found by Biscardi in a recent expedition to this same area last summer.

Plus, Milione has also developed the “BF-ELF” (Bigfoot - Extremely Low Frequency) Receiver system that is designed to monitor very low frequency sound waves and look for communication patterns. It is believed that these creatures may be able to communicate with each other at very low frequencies, and teams of trackers will use these handheld devices to pick up audio communications that would be undetectable to the human ear.

The other technology that will help make it a lot easier to capture and contain a Bigfoot is called the “Talon.” The Talon is a non-lethal takedown device that was originally developed for use by law enforcement and the military. It can be operated by remote control and it is a device that will launch a Kevlar/nylon net that will be used to contain and capture the creature. Dr. Daniel Sherman, Ph. D., of La Quinta, California, worked on the development of the Talon.

“With a combination of motion sensors, infrared helmet devices, audio frequency monitoring devices, and with several teams of trackers out in the field, it is going to be a lot easier to finally track down one of these creatures,” says Biscardi.

"There will be real danger, drama, personal interaction stories, scientific research, discovery, discussion of Bigfoot myth and fact, extremes of temperature, the fear of the unknown, things that go bump in the night, plus plenty of snakes, bugs and mosquitoes,” says Biscardi, “and hopefully, we will be able to capture the creature and then be able to do an extensive study of their nature and capabilities.”

“The expedition itself will generate tremendous interest as an entertainment and curiosity factor because it is a chance for the public to join us as we go out and try to catch Bigfoot, ’America’s King Kong,’” according to Biscardi. There will also be auditions for people to join the expedition. “There may be many people with special skills who will be able to assist us in this continuing hunt for Bigfoot,” says Biscardi, and we will soon be putting out a call for participants who wish to become involved in the television series"

“This expedition and the broadcast will become a worldwide event,” says Biscardi, “and we hope to be able to prove to the skeptics of the world that some kind of creature called Bigfoot exists.” With so many sightings over so many years, in so many countries, there are Bigfoot creatures in many different habitats,” says Biscardi, “and we’re going to go back into this swampy area near Paris, Texas and hopefully capture the creature we found, but could not capture, last summer.”

Biscardi himself has seen Bigfoot creatures six times over the past 34 years of tracking and studying information about the creature. The materials that Searching For Bigfoot, Inc. has collected and acquired over the past year, plus materials that will be forthcoming from this expedition are being categorized for inclusion in a “Bigfoot Museum.”
