The show begins with the premise that the skiers' injuries were such that only a creature with superhuman strength could have caused them.

...and apparently went straight off the fvckin deep end from there.

Discovery must be owned by the same people who own the "History Channel." Hasn't been any history there for years.

Sounds like you'd benefit from reading the book. Lots of people try to twist this story to match their fantasies, or to sell something.

One of those channels came up to my timberland to shoot a show. My neighbor got interviewed, and prefaced his response by saying, "I am the biggest poacher in these mountains...the closest thing to a Bigfoot I have seen was down in Oak Ridge at the Walmart."

Haha made me laugh!

what about during the 8 seconds of fuzzy video,
why is it i can barely make out the made in China tag on the side of the suit??

What is the correlation between 420 friendly households and Bigfoot sightings? Mescaline? Peyote? Boones Farm?
somehow most of the Sea Smoke drinkers will not be reporting a sighting,
well, maybe except for Reilly...

what about Biology??

In apelike populations it takes 20 individuals in some form of contact with each other to sustain a population.. or a species.
but we only hear of one, adult, Andre the Giant sized individual, never a family which is typical of ape types.
and never a group of juveniles with one female adult
just nomadic adult individuals so rare that even animal planet 2 could not get footage,
when they make a Himalayan Snow Leopard look as common as a house cat.

The species could not possibly sustain itself, given distribution advocated by the believers.

Nope, not once in 100 or more days a year in the field for 50 years. well, except driveways in Idyllwild.

But i have seen people with grants whip up a lot of interest. kind of like Al Gore, just on a smaller scale.

When I was a Bigfoot

On the floor of the cave
Where we slept that day
On her otter skins
And the smell was like
The oily hides
Of furry friends
On our best day
I’ll always remember that
She was my friend

hey there say, cliffhanger...

as to this post of yours:

Dyatlov Pass incident

i just accidentally saw this book, about this, while looking for a
mountain related book...

i thought i'd check supertopo and see if any mentioned this
incident, here, yet...


and, i SAW THIS thread here now-- and that you posted something about this... (different title, of course) but, i wondered if
the 'sound aspect' was connected to this terrible trouble, that they found themselves in, :(

I think there might well be some Bigfoot/locals cross-breeding in deepest Idaho.

Oh, yeah, absolutely!

After a day of climbing in my ultra-tight EBs, upon extraction both feet would blow up like balloons! Definitely a bigfeet encounter. I guess "bigfoot" if you're talking about either one of them.

Oh, and I should mention that what people claim about the TERRIBLE stench when in close proximity to a bigfoot is totally true. I have repeatedly been smitten to the ground by just the stench of bigfoot.

Wet dog smell?! Dangit, I've had loads of bigfoot encounters and been oblivious all this time.

^^^ Definitely more common than people realize. Wet dog with a fungal infection; that's the stench that permeates the air.

You're crawling away, whimpering in horror, but bigfoot follows. Relentlessly. There is no escape. Blissful unconsciousness takes you. When you come around, bigfoot is gone, and only a faint scent remains to remind you of the encounter.

Of course, you immediately block out the memory, which explains why people that have had such encounters honestly believe that they have not had them.

Jim, in response to your post from 2009 about Grizzlies in the San Juans, a friend told me a story recently regarding another friend (third hand, I know) that was hunting bear somewhere deep in the SJs and shot and killed what turned out to be a grizzly. Said the game warden told him to get it out of there in kind of a hush hush sort of way. If true, that's damn sad he shot it. But I wouldn't doubt there could be some out there.
There is some hunter, has a Podcast called meateater I think, that swears he has seen one down there. This is a guy that knows the difference between a cinnamon black bear and a grizzly. Grizzlies have squarish heads, etc. He didn't try to kill it though. Just is convinced that is what he saw.

I’m a skeptic about grizzlies in the San Juans. It’s the largest wilderness area in Colorado but it gets some traffic and there have been no “confirmed” sightings for several decades.
Wolves were also extirpated but are working their way back from the Yellowstone ecosystem and will recolonize the San Juans. There are now “confirmed” sightings in NW Colorado and, recently, one was killed crossing I 70.
I, for one, would be all for a reintroduction of grizzlies into the San Juans. It would spice up backpacking trips.
The last authenticated grizzly encounter in the San Juans was in Setember 1979 when one mauled and was then killed by an elk hunter...that’s 40 years ago. Interestingly, that was 28 years after the last grizzle supposedly was shot so I guess it’s still remotely possible.

Where are all the dead big foot bones. We can find dinosaur bones but no big foot bones. They are pretty good at burring their own.
