When it comes to bigfoot research, there are very few female investigators out there who have a golden reputation that take hairy cryptid seriously. Diane Stocking Neiss is one of them with 40 years under her belt.
After Hours with Rictor (the #1 Bigfoot webcast) features a special 2-part interview where Diane lays out the ground work on how to be an investigator. Do your homework. Read. Get out in the woods. Use scientific method. Don't lie about your work. Credibility is everything. And credibility is relative.
