Who leads you to believe they bury there dead?

Archaeologists all over the world will be very disappointed to hear that they are not scientists!

Gates has a bachelor's degree in archaeology, as well as a minor in drama (sounds like maybe he was planning for an entertainment career all along). He worked on an archaeology site in Israel while he was in college. Whether one sees him as having "legitimate credentials" as an archaeologist depends on one's definition of "legitimate" and "credentials". With a bachelor's, Gates is qualified for an entry level archaeology position but he'd need a master's at least to do serious research in the field.

He's not an academic, he doesn't have an advanced degree or publications AFAIK, but watching his shows, he seems to have a real passion for the topic. He's funny and entertaining, and frankly, I like his Expedition Unknown show a bit more than his paranormal stuff in Destination Truth. Though that show was highly entertaining, too.

Bigfoot is extinct (if it ever existed). There are thousands of trail hunting trap cams in remote wilderness areas across the country, placed by private parties and animal researchers.

None has shown a single image of Big Foot.

Would YOU go into the IR spotlight and have a photo taken if you were Bigfoot? Some animals can see into the IR spectrum, so it would be natural to expect bigfoot not to go where these photo hunting traps are placed.

I dont understand why some people cannot consider using methods other than the normal hunting accessories. Obviously, (since many people have seen bigfoot with their own eyes) there is something stopping bigfoot from being caught on IR hunting cameras.

The first claimed sighting of the infamous Big foot was over 150 years ago, if he was really real wouldn't he be dead by now.
