About Me/Bio


Scott Carpenter
I had my first experience with Bigfoot in 1972-1973 when two juvenile hairy bipeds peered at me through a glass door. In the Spring of 2009 I made some half hearted “whooping” calls while fishing on a local lake. The calls got the attention of something large, loud, and intimidating. It came to the shore line crashing through the underbrush and breaking limbs. Though the unseen creature never showed itself it did make an audible "hmmph" before walking slowly back into the forest.  This peaked my interest in the topic. I began researching Bigfoot/Sasquatch both on public lands and in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
 
In February of 2011 I joined North American Bigfoot Search (NABS) and I have contributed many hair and saliva samples to the "Ketchum" DNA Project. 

I have a BS in Computer Science and I am the Systems Administrator for a software development firm in Knoxville Tennessee. I make my home Maryville Tennessee in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.

  1. Enjoy your work just a little camera tip:
    Video taping in the woods is extremely difficult. Most consumer grade cameras have great difficulty focusing on the type of detail you are seeking. If your camera has a manual focus override, I would recommend the following: prep your camera beforehand by zooming in all the way to infinity and adjust for sharp focus. Switch to manual and dont adjust focus thereafter. Then when you pull out wide everything will be in focus. This is a special trick you can with zoom lenses. It allows you to go from wide to in tight and have everything in focus.

  2. Scott , you've revealed more about these creatures with your attention to details about their habits , and their way of thought processing , and getting amongst them and using careful observation in their habitat, than any of those running all over the place trying to catch a glimpse of them as they bypass all this important info. When the world does accept this species , your documented reports will be sought out to better understand these creatures. Good job !! Many appreciate all your hard work .

  4. Hey Scott. Am enjoying your site. Your infrasound idea intrigues me. I think you and others are onto something there.

  5. Thank you for all your hard work put in to share this fascinating topic with believers. I have recently became interested in Bigfoot and your research has been helpful in my learning of this new species. I loved that video where the big guy put out some mint for ya. They must be really smart. I can't wait for the DNA info to be published for the world to see!
    Thank again

    Hey I just read in the newspaper last week that the show Finding Bigfoot was in Fouke, Arkansas, which is Miller County investigating sighting of an unknown creature there. Suggested it would air later in 2013. I live in the city, in the center of the state, but thats awesome to think they are in my 'back yard' too.

  6. Scott, I have been following your work for the last 2 years or so and I must say that I personally rank you in the top 5 researchers out there. You do some excellent video taping on their habitat background, their daily habits, where they like and try to hide themselves from us humans both at night and day. I myself had and enormous encounter with one back in 2007 as I to live in Sasquatch country up North in British Columbia, Canada. Anyway Please keep up the Good work!!! Thank You Again.

  7. Saw you on Finding Bigfoot. Awesome. I felt like I was watching an Uncle on TV. I am curious how Matt Moneymaker treated you during the filming? He doesn't seem very nice to those that are "researcher" like yourself. Anyway, thought I would let you know it was cool seeing you on this show.

  8. Hi Scott,I feel that you are one of the most serious researchers ever where Bigfoot are concerned I saw your Finding Bigfoot appearance and I felt they could learn from you. What would they make of the 'Bigfoot Lurking In the Shadows' clip, where there is a Bigfoot sitting against a tree with his back to you at the waters edge? I believe that to be probably the best ever 'accidental' capture since Patty. Keep up the great work, I feel a breakthrough must come soon. Although I was born and live in England, i'm a believer, and follow you and a select few others in you quest.
    God bless you (and the US of A) and keep you safe

    1. I saw your dogman footage and decided from now on I am attaching this bear spray to my backpack for spraying behind me upon attack. Thought you might be interested. I already carry it for use on my belt. Zoos use it for lions and tigers, biologists use it at Yellowstone on bison and bears. Made in Alaska. IT WORKS. Mess up a dogmans nose bigtime.

  10. Scott,
    Good researching and keeping it real. I too have witnessed this "animal" in northern California. Yes they do exist. Hopefully one day we will truly understand there nature. Please keep up the good work.

  12. Interesting camera.

    Mount one on front / back / left arm / right arm while walking through woods.

  13. Scott. Please stay safe and keep up the good work. I wish I would have had video proof of my experiences here in central Ky. My health doesn't allow me to go out like I used to. It's a fascinating field of study. Especially when I follow someone I trust, that being you. From my close-up, face to face encounters, I can say that these are not apes. They look and act too much like a type of human-mixed with something extremely intelligent. Please stay away from the BFRO. They're clueless. Hopefully people in this field will forget about greed & fame, share all info so we can get the Sasquatch people protected. They need the help of honest, dedicated researchers such as yourself. I just wish I could help. You are in my prayers. Please stay safe. Your friend in the field of the study of the Sasquatch People.

  14. Awesome research. I've gotten more out of your work than from any other individual's effort. Great ebook volume 1.
    I'm very interested in analyzing the infrasound patterns from bigfoot and others. I've replicated your results from the Sneering Bigfoot you tube video using your documented method. I've also plotted in 3D decibel amplitude vs frequency and time for the time approaching the island through turning to exit. If this would be of any interest or help to you please contact me at junky2000x at gmail.com.
    Once again, awesome job. Please keep the good work.

  15. Thank you for posting the link to Bigfoot Buzz. I had been worried there was something really wrong with Chuck Prahl since the Bigfoot Tonight Show just stopped happening. I will keep him in my prayers. Vicki Bishop

  16. Caravan to midnight (all one word) in Episode 40 had a guest named Paul LaViolette a scientist who has written several books has shown though experiments that the Newtonian Physics model is wrong. A lot of this was over my head. He had an "inner experience that redirected his path, coming up with a view of the Universe that exists in general and I started developing my own Physics at that point which has now come to be called subquantum kinetics". Subquantum Kinetics is probably the book you would want to look at. His "inner experience" could be related to subjects we have discussed in the past related to the characteristics of bigfoot. Not really sure if this is treading on dangerous waters but the thought that came to me was possibly there are clues in this body of work that could help you understand the cloaking bigfoot does, but maybe not too. Just an FYI. The show is membership based so I don't know if you want to join to hear what he says it is $5 a month. The book may be more helpful.

  17. Orbs. Yesterday I read a letter someone wrote to L.A. Marzulli in his Further Evidence book about orbs. Someone wrote in that they were seeing orbs and asked God what they were. This person claims God told him they were Angels sent to protect him. This person states he is a Christian. Thought of your experience and just wanted to share this with you. I am wondering if this could be deception being played on the part of the person writing the letter. Seems to me orbs are not good...but maybe I am wrong. I need to keep an open mind I suppose that it could be possible and wait for more evidence. You do not need to post this for public viewing. Just keeping my "ears" open for clues. One other thought on this subject is that my son went to Uganda on a Missions trip and in one of the meetings where God healed a woman in front of my son there was a picture taken and there were orbs all over the room. My son seemed to think they were Angels. I have no experience with this other than what he said to me if it is true maybe the other person has a point. I just don't know I admit I am skeptical about this. Vicki

  18. John B. Wells www.caravantomidnight.com Episode 44 wonder if Bigfoot travels at the speed of thought? Could explain why he is so fast...just a thought. Vicki

  19. The above caravantomidnight episode could be significantly related to Chapter 17 Unknown Physics: Chuck Missler in L.A. Marzulli's book Further Evidence. Although the book is discussing UFO phenomena I believe the Bigfoot phenomena is related. Missler discusses the electrical energy and the "fabric" of space. We know that in some way Bigfoot uses electrical energy and this could possibly give you a breakthrough on understanding how he operates. You might want to investigate this connection. If you need more information re this please feel free to email me. Vicki

  20. Correction: It was Paul LaViolette in episode 40 not episode 44 sorry. Episode 40 also ties in but I was thinking about Paul talking about a new Physics paradigm that is known about but not taught in our schools. You might be able to find it with a search engine if you don't have caravantomidnight. Vicki

  21. This Hagmann and Hagmann Report from tonight was very interesting. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cfp-radio/2014/05/03/special-intelligence-insider-on-the-hagmann-hagmann-report
    It may possibly help to explain what and why of bigfoot. It references the new Physics paradigm and much more. I thought it might provide clues for you in connecting dots about Bigfoot. Vicki

  22. 3-stranded DNA related? Maybe, maybe not. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ8J_VwLurQ&list=UU7dkMoe_i-xfdkf0uMIMsWA

  23. Hi Scott,
    Why did you remove the videos of the Bigfoot you have known? I went back to check the comments and found it was gone. If my comment was offensive, I am sorry.

  24. Hi Scott, can you tell me who Dr. David Svenson is? I can´t find him on wiki, facebook etc. and would like to ask him something about Melbas Bigfoot genome studys. Greetings from Germany :)

    (so sad we don´t have Bigfeet here at all...)

  26. Hey Mr. Carpenter. If the giants bend light around them wouldn't a good laser light beaming in them make it obvious?

  27. Hi Scott, we lived in west Knoxville for 6 years. I had no idea bigfoot were so close. I've never seen one, but have no doubt they are real. But human? Saw you on some program with Les Stroud, and something you said led me to believe you might be a Christian. If bigfoot is human, how do they fit into God's plan? How do you reconcile all of this?
