    Yep. Especially the ones that have a TV producer making sure the sounds are "correct." With a bunch of drunk rednecks hanging out in the woods Budweiser will cause all kinds of ... strange ... sounds.

    You have another explanation for all that farting in the woods, I know.

    It is obvious that you have never, ever, been to a local sports bar during the rugby league State of Origin in Australia...

    Australia has a lot going for it in terms of bigfoot audiography (writing sound?)

    Yeah...not a common hangout for Bigfoot obviously either.

    So the prime issue here is not audio?

    Nailed it. Obviously not a cryptid, just a loudmouth human.

    You haven't seen some of the people who go to these bars for the Origin.

    My point is that these noises are so easily replicated. There is no evidence that someone is not off camera making the noises.

    We have received warning of mating season for koalas in the area. Now if you want to hear something truly terrifying at night, especially when your house is in the way of their mating pathing and they start scratching at your door, and you would probably think it was bigfoot..
    Then listen to koalas doing the mating, well, grunts and sounds like they come from the depths of hell... Particularly when they are pounding on your door or wall... The first time I ever heard it, was in the dead of night, I was fast asleep, the windows were open, it was a moonless night, the lights were out and I woke to that sound, right outside my window. It literally scared the shit out of me. The kind of fear that causes one's intestines to contract painfully, heart starts to race as the adrenaline kicked in. I was terrified. I remember thinking, do I switch the light on and scare whatever it was away. Or do I lie completely still and hope like hell it just moves on. Do I wake my then boyfriend, only to have him grab my arm, also terrified and not knowing what to do. And then the thumping started and the noises. If I was gullible enough, I would think bigfoot, easily. It is so loud and godawful sounding.

    The next morning, we saw the culprit. In a tree over the fence. We did not think that was it. There were claw marks on the wall. But a neighbour came across when he saw us looking at the claw marks on the timber and told us that it was very loud last night while indicating to the koala. I didn't believe it, because it's a koala. So cute and fluffy. But now, it was the koala. If I want to make a bigfoot believer really believe in bigfoot, then I'd bring them to Australia, near the bush or park in certain areas at this time of the year and have them spend the night.. Or film it with Americans looking scared in pitch black bushland and say it's bigfoot.

    Whenever there were puppets on TV, my dad used to try to figure out who the ventriloquist was. I tired without success to explain to him that you don't need a ventriloquist because the sound track is separate from the video.

    Well for one thing there's no koalas in Washington State. And number two, it is highly unlikely that any humans are sitting out in some remote random forested region making animal sounds in the middle of the night. Vocal analysts have checked the audio and ruled out human sources as well as any known animal. This is Bigfoot I'm sorry to say. He's out there. Be afraid. Be very afraid!

    "And number two, it is highly unlikely that any humans are sitting out in some remote random forested region making animal sounds in the middle of the night."

    Really? You can't think of any reason why people would make stupid noises in the dark woods, especially if their TV show was going to be canceled if they didn't start producing buzz?

    "Vocal analysts have checked the audio and ruled out human sources and as well as any known animal."

    "Vocal analysts" hired directly or indirectly by the film makers?

    What TV show were these Bigfoot hunters working with? None. They recorded the vocalizations independently and then their recordings were aired on a TV show or an internet podcast. Reality TV didn't start up until the 2000's.

    Unidentified noises ---> Bigfoot = non sequitur

    "Reality television is a genre of television programming that documents supposedly unscripted real-life situations, and often features an otherwise unknown cast of individuals who are typically not professional actors, although in some shows celebrities may participate. It differs from documentary television in that the focus tends to be on drama, personal conflict, and entertainment rather than educating viewers. An early term for the format was docu-soap.[1] The genre has various standard tropes, including "confessionals" (also called talking heads or interview segments) used by cast members to express their thoughts, which often double as the shows' narration. In competition-based reality shows, a notable subset, there are other common elements, such as one participant being eliminated per episode, a panel of judges, and the concept of "immunity from elimination."

    Reality television exploded as a phenomenon in the late 1990s and early 2000s with the global success of the series Survivor, Idols, and Big Brother.[2] These shows and a number of others (usually also competition-based) became global franchises, spawning local versions in dozens of countries. In the United States, various channels have retooled themselves to focus on reality programs, most famously MTV, which began in 1981 as a music video pioneer, before switching to a nearly all-reality format in the early 2000s.

    There are grey areas around what is classified as reality television. Documentaries, television news, sports television, talk shows, and traditional game shows are not classified as reality television, even though they contain elements of the genre, such as unscripted situations and sometimes unknown participants. Other genres that predate the reality television boom have sometimes been retroactively grouped into reality TV, including hidden camera shows such as Candid Camera (1948), talent-search shows such as The Original Amateur Hour (1948), documentary series about ordinary people such as the Up Series (1964), high-concept game shows such as The Dating Game (1965), home improvement shows such as This Old House--- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reality_television

    MR: "Reality TV didn't start up until the 2000's."

    Wiki: "Reality television exploded as a phenomenon in the late 1990s and early 2000s with the global success of the series Survivor, Idols, and Big Brother."

    It started up as early as 1948. It exploded in the 2000s.

    Can't you find something more substantial to be wrong about?

    I mentioned in message #34 that noises in the forest do not imply Bigfoot.
