Thom Powell to Appear on 'Finding Bigfoot' TV Show This SundayLast June I participated in the taping of an Oregon-based episode of the long-running cable TV show, Finding Bigfoot. Cliff and I camped in a secret bigfoot hot-spot in the Clackamas River drainage and tried some bigfoot attraction strategies with cameras rolling. You will have to watch the episode to find out how effective our attraction strategies were.
Originally, the episode was going to air at the end of last summer. Then, they started saying the show was going off the air,and the episode I contributed to would not have been aired at all. Then they got picked up for another season, so they resurrected the Oregon episode, but moved it to the new season. Maybe their plan was to anchor the whole new season around my dazzling performance, or they held off airing my episode last season because that would actually improve their chances of getting picked up for another season. I'm not sure which it was. We'll let the viewers decide.
In any event, if you want a good laugh, tune in to Animal Planet at 10 p.m. on Sunday, January 31to see how us Oregon bigfoot enthusiasts go about Finding Bigfoot. Here are some photos I shot on location during the taping:
