We originally created SquatchIt IN 2013 as the world’s first Bigfoot “wildlife call;” a “predator call” product.
The SquatchIt call is a beautifully crafted piece made out of wood and plastic. The nose of the call is a plastic ribbed accordion-like piece we refer to as a “gender bender” that adjusts the sound and pitch between feminine and masculine Sasquatch screams.
The best way to describe the noise is that of a woman vocalizing a hideous blood-curdling scream, which is the general consensus of what a Sasquatch sounds like.
Changing up your scream sounds: By placing one of your hands around the end piece and muffling the area where the sound emanates from, you can easily modify the sounds of your Sasquatch calls to keep things fresh. This is what makes SquatchIt even more effective out in the field.
The creation of SquatchIt began when I was watching a show called Duck Dynasty. They made their fortune selling duck calls, and I came to realize that no one had ever created a Bigfoot call. I wanted to be the first, and I was. My first thought was to develop a call that could potentially attract a real Sasquatch. It soon became even more than that. The possibilities from luring a Bigfoot, scaring friends to becoming the next big novelty noise maker phenomenon. So, after a lot of research and development, as well as access to some seriously secret Sasquatch research, I developed a prototype of SquatchIt.
My involvement in the Bigfoot world began in August 2012 when my business partner and I, volunteered to assist Dr. Jeff Meldrum and William Barnes by spreading the word about their Falcon Project initiative to build a high-tech airship to search for Bigfoot. We started BigFootBlimp.com, an informative site, to promote the Falcon Project online and raise awareness for this exciting initiative.
Around that time, I was also watching several Bigfoot based shows and saw the patterns that revolved around the creature’s vocalizations. This is when I decided to make the SquatchIt prototype sketch above, which is the first visual representation of the SquatchIt device.
This is when I began researching predator call companies. I found one that I really liked, and my first interaction with the company was rather funny. I first sent an email asking if they could assist with a call project and quickly jumped on the phone. I explained precisely what I was looking to accomplish and long story short, the person absolutely thought I had lost my mind!
They said, “James, Ordinarily, if someone calls me with such an outrageous idea like yours; a Sasquatch Call, I would have instantly hung up in their ear…I’m not sure what’s kept me on the line thus far, but you have my ear and my interest.” Together, we went back and fourth discussing the concept and sent them as much as I could find related to Sasquatch vocalizations, including some radical audio files.
Around that time, they told me that they had been playing the audio vocalizations on their computer speakers and became concerned that his employees would wonder about what the heck he was going on in their offices! LOL Over the next year, we worked on developing just the right sound that would emanate out of our SquatchIt call device, and finally ended up engineering just the right sound! I then made two prototypes of the SquatchIt, started testing them out, and quickly realized that everyone that saw and heard it, wanted one!
We want the childlike wonder, shocking scares, and laugh till you cry fun of SquatchIt to be affordable for everyone, and our sponsors make that possible.
