My friend Steve Isdahl who lives in Squamish British Colombia, he has been hunting Big Game animals such as Moose, Elk, Deer, Big Horn Sheep, and Bear for the past thirty years. In that time, he has accidentally met a Bigfoot several times.
Steve has been a hunting guide for the past 20-25 years, and he began video recording his hunts and hikes more than ten years ago. His YouTube channel “How To Hunt” was originally 100% about hunting, but several years ago Steve began to talk about Bigfoot too because he felt that it was an important subject.
Now, most of the time on the “How To Hunt” YouTube channel, Steve talks about Bigfoot, and he reads Bigfoot stories that have been sent to him by viewers. Here is a pretty good example of Steve’s channel:
Steve has also recently published a book titled “The Day Bigfoot Became Real For Me”, which is available for sale on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Day-Sasquatch-Became-Real-Me/dp/B089D3937C

Several days ago Steve Isdahl uploaded a YouTube video where he read an email letter from a viewer who showed many indicators of being mentally-ill and delusional. From the very beginning of his email, he stated that there was a history of mental illness in his family, that his older brother was diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was a child, that he was seeing strange things too, so he kept is mouth shut so that he was not diagnosed with schizophrenia like his brother. One of the things that he said at the beginning of this email, was that every day when he was being driven to school, Bigfoot and Dogman would chase after the car that he was riding in. (Yet no adult or anyone else saw these Bigfoot or Dogman chasing the car every day.)
As this email continued, other indicators of mental illness were repeated mentions of having special abilities, being persecuted, seeing only things that he could see, having information that was for him only that could not be shared, having close intimate relationships with Forest Beings for many years, and as proof he submitted eight photographs which showed nothing.
Steve never should have read this email in one of his YouTube videos, and should not have promoted this individual as someone that he wanted to receive and read more stories from. I don’t know why Steve could not discern that this person was making delusional statements and delusional claims, especially since this person claimed that his photographs were evidence of everything that he described, and these photographs showed nothing.
For the past one hundred years there has been a lack of information, a lack of understanding, and misinformation about Bigfoot. Now with much greater worldwide access to individual sighting reports, historical newspaper and journal articles, results from researchers and groups, and credible individuals and groups uploading their findings weekly, there is a much better collection of evidence, proof, facts, and information about Bigfoot behavior.
When someone like Steve Isdahl uploads a YouTube video where he is showcasing a particular individual and their sighting reports, and this individual is coming out and saying that there is a history of mental illness in his family, making statements of believing that he has special abilities and has been persecuted, is making many grandiose claims which are likely delusional, offering his definitive proof in photographs which show nothing, Steve is introducing misinformation into the collection of information that we have.
Approximately one month prior to this, Steve Isdahl read a very long email letter from an individual who acted like they had the whole Bigfoot subject figured out, that Bigfoot were the Nephilim, the fallen angels or the offspring of fallen angels referenced in the Bible. Stating that Bigfoot were demons that should be rebuked in the name of Jesus, that they were evil.
This was another email that Steve should not have read in a YouTube video, as this introduces misinformation into the collection of information that we have. Steve did not make any disclaimer about this email that he was reading stating that Bigfoot were the Nephilim, and about 1,000 comments to this particular video were in supports of this theory.
This was a very harmful and irresponsible thing for Steve Isdahl to do, because allowing people to believe what he read stating that Bigfoot were the fallen angels, evil demons, that should be rebuked in the name of Jesus, a great many people could now seek to harm, attack, hunt, shoot, and kill Bigfoot thinking that they were justified and doing the right thing in the eyes of God.
Steve Isdahl has lost most of his credibility with me. I am getting the impression that this is just a joke, amusement, and something to make money off of for Steve now. Who knows, he might even be deliberately trying to spread misinformation now.
