The hominids we know the most about, particularly the Neanderthal, were carnivores and the Neanderthal was a total carnivore. Anything like that surviving to this day would leave a trail of bones and blood and gore behind him which wouldn't be terribly hard to track, there'd be people and farm animals going missing all over the place. This is what Neanderthals looked like, coutesy of www.themandus.org:
The ONLY way a hominid could live elusively today would be if he'd learned to survive on pine needles.
Extant hominids are primarily fructivorous, not carnivorous. And while Neanderthal was fundamentally a meat eater, that may exaplin why you don't see many of them now days.

Not saying there are or aren’t sasquatches BUT how many bear carcasses or leavings from a big carnivore type animal (wolf, bear etc) do people find in the deep woods? There should be bones gore and blood from their meals as well.
