I spoke to Jeff Meldrum almost a year ago about Standing and I predicted to Jeff that Standing will not take him to where he shot the alleged Sasquatch face photos. I recently emailed Jeff to see if he ever saw these locations with Standing and the answer was "no".
While Jeff is not prepared to say Standing hoaxed the face images, I am reminded of the some of the answers Standing has given concerning his so-called evidence. For instance: When the BFRO Finding Bigfoot crew asked to see the Sentry location, Standing did not want to take them there because he said there were bears and mountain lions in that area, thus it would not be safe to go there - Yet Standing says he goes there alone. No explanation was given for why he would think 5 to 10 people would be more at risk of a bear or mountain lion attack than one man would be in going by himself.
When Standing was asked why he only shot 3 seconds of film of the alleged Sentry rising up - Standing replied that 'No one will believe its real by just capturing it on film, so why bother shooting more than 3 seconds of footage'. Again Standing's answer made no sense and defied his bothering to take a camera along in the first place. I mean, what if the alleged Sasquatch Sentry would have picked up a large rock and hurled it towards Standing ... would that not go a long way that a mere man could not have lifted and thrown such a stone? I'm sorry, but I wish Meldrum would consider the man's obviously made up answers and add them to his decision on whether Standing deserves any consideration.
When I asked Jeff to explain how it was that Standing went from looking straight on at the subjects face to then looking up its trunk without it showing any concern of his being near its feet - Jeff replied that Standing had told him the creature was up in a tree. It was at that time that I had great doubts that Standing will ever take Jeff to the alleged Sasquatch face location. And if he ever does, I hope Jeff can explain the boulder seen in one of the images as it blocks part of the alleged Sasquatch's torso. Boulder's in a tree - yeah right!
I am a little disappointed with your last post Bill While your questions and observations are spot on I just hope that Dr. Meldrum is not choosing to wear blinders when it comes to Standing I would have thought that an experienced researcher like Dr. Meldrum would have the same concerns

He isn't saying Todd Standing is not a hoaxer - Jeff just feels that the evidence against the guy is all open to interpretation. And while I cannot argue against Jeff's caution to come out and label the guy a fraud - I do think he should press for answers and insist that Standing prove himself or just stop wasting everyone's time.
One of the things I have not pointed out to Jeff is that with the alleged toy faced Sasquatch and the dark haired figure is that they both have a head that sits well atop of a neck above the shoulders - just like a humans. This has been a give-a-way that I watch for on all alleged Sasquatch films. The two guys were correct in that a Sasquatch - just like a bear - has certain characteristics among the different types of alike species.
If I had PhotoShop and could capture the stills from the critique article .... I would better demonstrate what I am talking about.
If you watch the video of Dr. Meldrum's presentation at Yakima (youtube link is on this forum) If you go to I think the last 5 minutes, he talks about Patty's head and neck and shows the 3d printer sasquatch skeleton
