Bigfoot hunters explore Columbus clues
On the side of a remote Columbus road, about half an hour before sunset in early August, two men coated themselves in bug spray and prepared for the hunt.
The men were not looking to kill their prey, however. Instead, they sought to capture it – not physically, with nets or traps, but on the public record, with an arsenal of recording technology, including high-definition cameras, night vision camcorders and a parabolic ear. Linwood resident Abe Del Rio and his partner, a Scandia man who asked to only be identified as “Reed,” made a final check to make sure all their gear was in order before turning to the forest immediately next to the road.
“I think we’re ready to get our ‘squatch on,” Del Rio said with a smile.
