Unless you've been under a rock the last year or so, I'm sure you would've at least seen this guys name pop up within the US Bigfoot community..
He has caused quite a stir with his "No BS" approach, calling out the less than desirable figures within the community along the way..
Rather than focussing on providing evidence to scientific communities, he has essentially taken the approach of questioning why this subject is being covered up like it clearly is imo.
What gets to him most is the treatment and ridicule of people who have had encounters themselves, which I couldn't agree with him more..
A lot of researchers don't like Steve as they feel he is personally attacking their work or merely the fact his opinions are toxic to the community..
Not sure about now, but for a while there Christopher Noel started a campaign to discredit Steve, a bad move.
Personally, I lost all respect for him because of that, he made himself look pretty stupid.
As the saying goes "those who scream the loudest, have the most to hide"..
All that being said, I'm a fan of Steve's work. Its completely different from anything else out there, sitting back and ignoring all the scumbaggery surrounding the topic won't achieve anything.. I believe he's a perfect candidate for the job, and if any "nobody" is going convince the public these beings exist, its someone like him..
Anyway, what are your thoughts on Steve Isdahl? Good or bad for the community?

Yeah I quite like Steve for his no "BS" approach, I understand he may have ruffled a few feathers but it was absolutely needed in the Bigfoot community. I dont think he intentionally went out to create a storm, I think he just wanted to bring people back to the basics.

I actually posted one of his videos here in this section of the forum a while back because I believed he was on the right track.

I have not watched all of Steve's videos but the ones I have seen I have been impressed by his "tell it like it is" and down to earth attitude.

For far to long the Bigfoot community has been going round in circles, literally red circles :lol: with fake artists and con-men and all kinds of charlatans.

It has needed someone like him for a while.

I've watched some of his stuff. He can come across as a bit arrogant at times. Does make some good points, but he lost me somewhat by seeming to support the ridiculous "Massacre of Bigfoot" nonsense that was debunked years ago, though he seems to have shied away from mentioning it lately. Canadian Sasquatch investigator Thomas Steenburg had something to say on this at http://thomassteenburg.com/2020/04/29/m ... ked-again/, though I've not watched the linked video.

Just my opinions - don't shoot the messenger . . .

Thanks for sharing, I listened to the second half on the way to work this morning, pretty much from where the host accuses Isdahl of hoaxing..
Apparently he shared some images on instagram last year, someone commented and asked if they were his, Steve didn't reply...lol
The guys on the show clearly upset about the "massacre" controversy being bought up again, and feel for Gimlin, but I sense a little envy towards Isdahl.
The host Steve Kull, most definitely has a problem with Isdahl's opinion on what Bigfoot could be.. Kull seems to think anything "Supernatural" is immortal, and labeling something as "Damned" is Demonic.
The cheap "Canadian" references don't help their case either..

I watched an hour of this video got to say it was becoming a little tedious. I agree with the four guys no massacre occurred it didn't and it couldn't happen.
I can't believe that Steve Isdahl if I have it right, believes that the massacre did occur but at the same time believes Bigfoot to be supernatural/demonic a complete contradiction. He left himself open for ridicule and did a complete disservice to people who do support this theory.

Steve Isdahl likes to read stories of how other amateurs described their experience. Amateurs do not make good scientific observers because they have no prior experience at it. Amateurs like to distort reality and do not really understand what terms like "stalking" mean, but like to use it in order to sound like they outwitted the predator that was stalking them. It is beyond Steve's understanding that if a massacre did occur, then where are the bodies and/or hides to display in a circus side show in some attempt to make a lot of money. The whole purpose of Roger shooting the film, was to make some money off of it. If Roger had Bigfoot bodies from Bluff Creek, then they would have surfaced by now. Obviously, MK Davis can't deal with this pesky detail either and appears to be have schizophrenia due to an unlimited ability to manufacture hallucinated stories from his own fraudulent adjustments to his 5th generation copy of the PG film. He is trying to regain his long lost fame from when he stabilized the film, in order to support himself since he has no job. Christopher Noel has a monster sized ego and although he likes to use a lot of fancy words, he has a chronic case of paranormal Bigfoot phobia and cannot deal with any field researcher who has been around a lot longer than him and has a hundred times more in your face field experience. He used to portray himself as the ultimate authority on Bigfoot with some internet show years ago, when he had absolutely no field experience. Steve Kulls is a typical undereducated southern redneck who also cannot deal with the thought that Bigfoot are paranormal. Very few researchers in the U.S., can recognize the presence of an invisible Bigfoot, and consequently do not believe a Bigfoot is present unless they can either see them or hear some loud noise that could not come from anything else. An invisible Bigfoot could be standing right next to you and often are, and he would not make a noise until you startled it by hitting a wood block with a drummer's stick. And then you might hear them step back one step, if you are lucky.
