Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Rick Reles:

I spoke with Dave about the experience he and his father and brother had in 1979. He described the subject they saw as walking upright, leaning into its gait, with long swinging arms. Dark in color, very large, They saw it for approx. 5 seconds, at a distance of 75 yards. Described movement to that of the Bigfoot in the Patterson-Gimlin film. They waited many years at the dismissal of their father, to only recently report their account to the BFRO.
