But the question will be should researchers tread through another researcher's survey area? When it comes to wildlife and if it is on public land then other researchers may want to confirm claims or findings based on published research. That is usually done by contacting the original field researcher.
If you are looking at not setting up cameras or anything other than walking through an area and noting the flora and fauna well you do not need permission for that unless it is on private property. This is all Wayne and Streufert did. They simply had a curiosity because of the claims made.
If you are dealing with trampling over the area of a wildlife survey and its cameras etc then out of courtesy you let a research team know but members of the public do this all the time and have no idea a wildlife survey or study is taking place because there are no huge signs announcing that.
In this case, again, Johnson was making wild claims and offered no substantiation or evidence so scientific curiosity steps in. I was unaware of the head injury Johnson suffered which may well explain certain aspects ~in claims of both ongoing paranormal and UFO activity I have found certain percipients to have suffered head trauma in the past and even forms of epilepsy.
I do have to now call into question Adam Davies' reputation, however. Based on the area description given by Wayne it has to be concluded that Davies did not do a survey of the area on foot prior to events as described. This is basic for any naturalist or researcher on a field trip. If the so called None Disclosure Agreement has silenced Davies then it should not because he was on Bureau of Land Management territory.
Personally, I always respected Davies who has done much field work into mystery hominids around the world.
Davies should reveal what he knows or suspects because this whole SOHA Project blunts most serious scientific interest in Sasquatch ~as does the Finding Bigfoot teams inability to identify clear owl calls~ and it slaps down all the work he has done because when I heard the claims I know I thought "What the hell are you doing and saying?!" so what others thought I can only imagine.
The SOHA Project, Adam Davies and Portals
I will include a link here to statements by Adam Davies, who I have a lot of respect for, regarding what happened to him on a particular night. To be honest I thought that he was joking. When I sent a link to a friend who has no interest in Sasquatch I jokingly added "explain this!" to it. The reply I got was "holographs".
Now, looking at what Davies and his companion described I realised that, as there had been no actual physical contact between the witnesses and 'guardians', yes, what was reported could be achieved by a man made light show. But then I thought "That would cost a LOT of cash" so I followed links my friend sent. It was nowhere as expensive as I thought. And if the expected remuneration from such a hoax seemed high enough....
Here Adam Davies and John Carlson discuss what happened the day after but seem far more intimidated in stance or, perhaps, not intimidated as much as being careful to report what they saw exactly-did they suspect something? Certainly, their accounts and what Johnson claims vary a lot.
Let's see the "mind blowing" evidence to be presented next April. Personally, I don't care. I think this is a big hoax and people should just back away quickly. Of course, Johnson has that cult following that will never believe anything negative.
You will see this following in the You Tube comments sections as well as online. But you also get totally out-of-hand abuse and name calling on what you might think were respectable sites. Read the next bit then check the site's comments.
People still wonder why I work alone?
