One might assume that it would be a simple matter to fabricate
convincing snow tracks. It is not. Authentic sasquatch tracks in
snow have both obvious common characteristics, as well as many subtle
but identfiable characteristics. By the same token, fake tracks
in snow have some obvious common characteristics, as well as subtle
but identifiable characteristics. Extraneous factors related to
the sources, the overall scene and circumstances, contribute to
criteria for determing if snow tracks are real or authentic.
BFRO members love nothing more than to teach people, in person,
the techiques and approaches for determining the authenticity of
tracks, but we will not lay out that information publicly on the
Internet. We do not want to train pranksters and hoaxers to make
more convincing fake tracks. The criteria for making determinations
about authenticity is only useful to the extent that it is not common
knowledge, or easily accessed online.
