Join me as I chat with David Sidoti, a Florida Bigfoot Researcher. If you want to see this interview live, go check it on YouTube!
David Sidoti was born in Milford Conn; his family moved to Florida when he was two years old. Throughout his youth him and his brother explored the forests and swamps of Florida, and North Carolina where they once lived. Nothing was more exhilarating than tromping through the swampy forests of Florida or the hills and mountains of North Carolina. What sparked David’s interest in this phenomenon was when he was seven years old, his family watched the Patterson-Gimlin film on a show called “In Searcher Of”. Then later, The Legend of Boggy Creek film propelled his thinking of the realization that there must be something more to all this. David started his research journey about these creatures in 1995. He did a lot of arm-chair research and self-examination for the next three years on the subject and found there to be a lot more to it than meets the eye. During that time, he read a lot of literature from Dr. Grover Krantz, Dr. Jeff Meldrum, John Green, and many others, he also read thousands of eye-witnesses encounters across the US and Canada, and other countries. That is when he realized behavioral patterns that these creatures possess across the country and world. This helped him understand more regarding these creatures’ abilities, and their environment that they would live in. In 1998 David joined up with a large organization for a short term, then in the early part of 2000 he founded “The Independent Sasquatch Research Team”. He and his team have been focused on acquiring scientific evidence of these creatures and to try to establish first communication with them, as ambiguous as that sounds. David has investigated many encounters in Florida and other parts of the US, he has been in close contact with these creatures but has not laid eyes on one yet. He has twenty-eight years’ experience on the subject, which includes using the knowledge he gained while in & out of the field, conversing with hunters on animal & wilderness awareness, investigating areas of encounters, acquiring the skills needed for definitive evidence collection, which include tracking, DNA collection and self-taught wilderness survival skills, which he feels is a necessity in all aspects of field investigations. He also has worked with Adam Davies on a few of his reported encounters in Florida and hopes to work Adam again in the future. David has also spoke at the very first Great Florida Bigfoot conference in 2021, and was on the Q&A board of the 2022 and 2023 conferences. All this is in conjunction with having great loyal people on our team.
