It is a pitch-black night with only a slight sliver of moonlight seeping through the thick branches of surrounding trees. The air feels almost alive, hazy and thick with the breath of nature. The ground is damp, the humidity unbearable. Mosquitoes and other insects buzz around, attacking the invasive strangers of this no-man’s land.

The sound of broken sticks cracks through the night. There is a muffled cry in the distance.

This is the life of retired librarian and Bigfoot researcher Steve Moon, who founded the nonprofit Lowlands Bigfoot Research Group in 2017.

“There are a lot of little groups around the country who are looking into this problem of [ancient] hominids, but there aren’t too many that are doing scientific research,” he said.

With three M.F.A.s and a master’s in anthropology, Moon has studied Bigfoot for the past 10 years, and he claims to have had at least 12 sightings.

“This, to me, is a culmination of years of research and work,” he said. “Hopefully, it’ll lead to something real significant.”
