There are many takes on how to call up your basic bigfoot. Some swear by the call blasting method where amplification is used to reach out and say “howdy” over more than a handful of miles. We are not fans of this method because:
- your close in bigfoot are discriminating audiophiles and know the difference between live and memorex.
- your far away bigfoot is probably not going to waste the time to trot miles up the drainage to see what the hell is going on up there.
- you also have that whole issue of playing recorded, purportedly the real deal, bigfoot sounds. Would you let a stranger tell you how to say a phase in Japanese and then walk into a sumo dojo and shout it at those big boys?
- some use predator calls, kids playing, we even ran into a guy that swore by carnal noises. Carnal, not carnival, he was odd but a hoot around the campfire.
For the betterment of bigfootery we present two versions of the lower technology human vocals solution. It is portable, needs no batteries, has a shorter range, but is certainly realistic in terms of the tones. We really wanted to strip the one video out and play the sound as the real deal and see how much traction it got, but we joke but do not hoax. But to appreciate both you need to really crank up that sound. Comments concerning your field results will be welcome. My personal result was a shouting wife and a scattering cat.
This one is odd because it is very owl like. Sorry it would not embed, so click here.
This is the one that needs volume. It has some possibilities in the field in our opinion combining a hint of the old fashioned yell with a subtle carnal undertone.
