great pride in the professionalism and confidentiality of the group along with the scientific field research conducted. He believes that we can study and prove the existence of these creatures without the need to kill one. He encourages anyone who has had a sighting or an encounter with a bigfoot within the state to share their story with us.
Pete Wilson, Investigator
everything in motion, including reading John Greens book "Sasquatch: The apes among us", the rest is history. Pete enjoys family time, fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and off-roading which all works well for bigfoot research. Over the years he has found footprints and heard suspected bigfoot vocalizations but an actual visual encounter has eluded him thus far. He enjoys his time out of doors and meeting with fellow researchers as they work together to try and prove the greatest mystery of our time. To contact Pete, go to http://montanabigfoot.weebly.com/
Adam Frye, Investigator
Adam Frye lives in the Shenandoah Valley with the Shenandoah National Park in his backyard. He has spent alot of time deployed with the various battalions of the 116th Infantry Regiment. At home he works for a construction supply company. He spends the rest of his time with his wife and children. He has been interested in Bigfoot ever since watching shows about it on TV around the age of 12. When talking to his neighbor, he was amazed to hear that he had seen one only a mile from his home. His neighbor wasn't sure what it was. Adam printed out some pics of Bigfoot drawings off the internet at school and when he showed him the reaction was "Oh my god...that's what it was!". That was his first Bigfoot investigation. Fast forward ten years and he took a digital camera to the area and he found signs of what he believes to be a latrine area. Alot of the pics can be seen here on the Sasquatch Watch of Virginia photo section. He has continued to find more possible evidence to this day. He has recently purchased a microscope to study hair and has a plan for collecting it. Adam keeps in constant contact with the W.V.B.I.G. He believes that sharing ideas and techniques helps out in this research. In addition he believes that habitualization is the answer in discovering this elusive creature and does not support killing the creature to prove it's existence.
