They pull in to any town, USA or Canada, go out that night, and get bigfoot responses. This is a hot spot of bigfoot activity. But... we gotta be moving on to the next location.
I saw a show on leopards in Mumbai. The guy wanted to know if they lived in a big park in town. He took five over the counter, common as dirt game cameras and set them up. The next morning he had good film of a leopard. These bigfoot nuts could invest $10,000 in cheap game cameras and have one on every tree, and leave them for months. Nope, yell a few times, get in the car and leave.
They need to organize a big foot stakeout on the Whitehouse kitchen.
Well, you have a 50% chance of being correct.
I don't believe bigfeet exist either but after moving out to Oregon and seeing how incredibly dense the forests can be, it seems a lot more plausible that a large creature can hide in the woods and not be seen too often by humans.
They also searched in New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia in addition in Alaska, Washington and California.
What!? They haven’t bothered to search in the Big Thicket in Southeast Texas?
Probably afraid to go in there. Panthers, bears, feral hogs, poisonous snakes, etc. One of my gr-grands and his brothers and friends would go there on two week trips and take back plenty of meat to feed their families for many weeks.
Strange isn’t it, that no skeletons or skulls of Big Foot have been found...
Perhaps - but then it would be just another animal out there (an ape of some type). Much cooler in our imaginations!
It wasn't that long ago that the Chinese told stories of strange mountain men. Turned out to be the Panda Bear (1896). Others include the mountain gorilla (1902).
Think of all the sea monster stories told by sailors back in the 1700s... those were likely giant squid.
Ping me when they actually find a body - dead or alive.
The show is just an endless tease, and as such grows tiresome quickly.
That was on that list. But I did happen to see a news show where the marine biologists were using the old submarine sonar listening system to monitor and track whales. They would play a tape and the guy would say something like:
That’s a gray whale off the coast of California....
That’s a Beluga Whale in the Bering Straight...
Did several more, and then the last tape - the sound was in between an organic, animal sound and a high frequency electrical, synthesized sound - almost like something from a sci-fy movie (although some of the whale sounds were almost as weird).
The guy said “That is in the Indian Ocean, at a depth of over xxxxx feet (it was REALLY deep),......
and we have no idea what it is.”
They played the sound again and a chill ran up my spine.
I have to admit, I know BFRO. I live in Oregon afterall. Those folks are dedicated to finding the truth, not making it up. I give credit where credit is due.
But, I would honestly rather be labeled a birther (done, got the t-shirt and the concert promo poster even though I am a constitutionalist not a birth certificator...) than a bigfoot believer. The fact that Obama is not constitutionally qualified for POTUS is something I have personally proven.
All I have left now is the fact I am not out there chasing bigfoot.
Jeez, how many more words can I come up with that don’t fit into mozilla’s web spellchecker? LOL

Ignorance prevails here. That was no Big Foot at Aspen, that was a Wookie
For one, the Mountain Gorilla was considered a native legend until it was found in 1902 (October 17) by German explorer Captain Robert von Beringe. And it was a 'native legend' as no remains of this alleged creature were ever found. Only anecdotal 'stories' from the African natives existed as 'proof' (sound familiar, no?).
And the Coelacanth fish was thought to have went extinct 140 million years ago until it was 'rediscovered' in 1938 in a Fish Market in Madagascar(iirc). The natives though the white man's reaction somewhat amusing as that fish was fairly common for them. And Madagascar isn't exactly off the beaten track of modern man or science. (when I was in Elem school in the 50's the text books and teaching still said the Coelacanth was extinct -- FAIL (lol).)
So given the vast remote ares of the Pacific Northwest, or remote forested areas of the Southern US, like along/near the Appalachian Trail a breeding sustaining population of 'Bigfeet' is *feasible*. And given the time, separation, geography and climate, the Southern and NW species would likely 'evolve' (adapt) differently. This would hold true for the Tibetan Yeti too.
Anywho, IMHO if - when - Bigfoot, Sasquatch, (Gigantopithecus) is found it will be in the Pacific NW. The Indian legends and modern sightings go back longer and are more numerous there. Plus the breeding habitat is much more remote and vast in the NW.
Gigantopithecus: 'extinct' genus of ape that existed from roughly one million years to as recently as three hundred thousand years ago..
Don't ever tell the Pa, WV, KY & Va DNR’s they are committed to the notion that there is no eastern cougar population left aside for a very small group in Florida.
Yep. I know. My report was not well-received, although I got an excellent view of the animal.
The preconceived opinion in certain quarters is that the eastern mountain lion is extinct, therefore any mountain lions found in the east are of necessity either misidentifications, released pets, or wandering western mountain lions. (They had to come up with some answer when mountain lions began to found dead after being hit by cars.)
My personal view, after doing a little looking at the history, is that a small population of eastern mountain lions centered in West Virginia and western Virginia never died out. There have always been a significant amount of good sightings from that area.
Side note: Mountain lions and wolves are among the most misidentified and overreported (when they aren’t actually there) animals on the North American continent. One clue is to note that it seems that probably close to half of all mountain lion “reports” in the East are of a “black panther”. However, there has never been a verified case of a melanistic mountain lion anywhere on the North American continent.
These bogus reports have lead to problems in trying to sort out the few and rare leigitimate sightings of mountain lions and (pre-1975) red wolves in the East.
I hate to say it, but I think this is for real.
I regularly visited places that I would bet that no one had set foot on in at least 50 years, if ever. I think that we can rule out those areas as a viable breeding area for Sasquatch.
Point taken on the Southern Appalachian Trail area.
I have never been there, only going by what I've seen in photos and satellite images as it sure looks pretty remote and deserted (pristine wilderness). But you would be the expert since you've humped that ground personally.
