Cryptid Hunting: What to Bring Along? at

It's that time of year again: Bigfoot season. posts an article about what extras to bring along on your hunt, to ensure proper scientific, nay, forensic, attention to the evidence. In Cryptid Hunting: What to Bring Along? we are told that today's Bigfoot hunter needs to pack:
  1. Paper sacks and envelopes
  2. Camera/video recorder (Preferrably with night vision)
  3. Tweezer/tongs
  4. Rubber gloves
  5. Magnifying glass
  6. Parabolic mic
  7. Plaster of Paris
  8. Tape measure
  9. Log book
  10. a few sterile collecting bottles or containers for fecal material samples and for urine specimens
  11. tapes to record from your parabolic mic
  12. "For DNA collection, you will want to have sterile latex gloves"
  13. "If hair sampling envelopes are not available, place samples into small sealed paper envelope or zip lock bag (no brand recommended). Use a permanent marker or pen, clearly include all sampling information with each sample. This includes name of collector, time, date, assumed cryptid, human, or known species name, field tag number, gender (if known), age (if known), location including lat./long., Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) or township."
Ok, it only gets weirder and more obsessive. Read at your own OCD risk.
