Shooting Bigfoot is a 2013 documentary that follows the controversial world of Bigfoot hunting. The film stars three men, C. Thomas Biscardi, Wayne Burton, and Rick Dyer, who all claim to have seen and even killed the elusive creature. The movie explores their obsession with finding the elusive creature, their methodology behind Bigfoot hunting, and the reactions of the general public to their claims.

The movie opens with a statement from Biscardi, who is a self-proclaimed Bigfoot hunter: "I'm not crazy. I'm not a liar. I'm a tracker." Biscardi has spent over 35 years searching for the creature and claims to have had numerous sightings, and even recovered a body. He has become a controversial figure in the Bigfoot community, with many accusing him of hoaxing evidence to gain fame and fortune.

The film also introduces Burton, who is a believer in Bigfoot’s existence but admits that he has never seen one. However, he believes there is enough credible evidence to prove that the creature exists. He and Biscardi lead expeditions across the country to search for Bigfoot, including a heavily wooded area in Texas.

Finally, the documentary introduces Dyer, who caused a media frenzy in 2008 when he claimed to have killed a Bigfoot and was set to unveil its body to the public for a hefty fee. However, when the supposed body was finally revealed, it was discovered to be a hoax, causing Dyer to lose all credibility in the Bigfoot community. Dyer even admits in the film that he had faked the body, but claims that he did so only to attract attention to the cause.

The film offers a glimpse into the culture of Bigfoot hunting, including the various methods used to capture evidence like footprints, audio recordings, and visuals. The hunters talk about their theories on the creature’s behavior, including where they believe it lives, what it eats, and how it interacts with humans. They also discuss the impact that the media has had on the Bigfoot community, with many people making claims that are not backed up by evidence.

Throughout the film, the three hunters encounter many skeptics, including wildlife officials and members of the public who do not believe in the existence of Bigfoot. However, they also meet people who have had their own encounters with the creature and support the hunters' efforts.

Shooting Bigfoot is ultimately a film about obsession, belief, and the lengths that people will go to prove their point. It raises questions about what constitutes evidence and how far people are willing to go to find it. The film leaves it up to the audience to decide whether or not Bigfoot actually exists, but it is clear that for Biscardi, Burton, and Dyer, the search for the creature is an unending quest.

Shooting Bigfoot is a 2013 documentary with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6.
