A: No guns or other weapons are permitted at BAW. Knives and machetes used for camping/hiking are permitted but are not to be used for personal protection or against wildlife and other persons. Mace and pepper spray are approved methods of personal protection from threatening wildlife.
- Q: If I come to one of your events can you guarantee I'll see a Bigfoot?
A: Unfortuantly, we can not guarantee you'll see a Bigfoot or have an encounter. However, between our experienced field guides and hand selected research areas the chances of having an encounter are much better. Each year we ussually have at least one team who has a sighting or encounter.
BAW events may involve high elevation, physical exertion, hiking steep inclines, walking through areas with standing water, loose dirt or gravel, traversing difficult terrain with low visibility, coming in contact with various wildlife and other potentially dangerous situations and with it the potential for death, serious injury, and property loss. You may be required to sign a liability release wavier and an audio/video/still photo release upon arrival at the event. No weapons permitted.
