Sorry Charles, I didn't mean to overlook your post and re-post the same information. That's annoying, and I didn't do it on purpose.

Between 1992 and 1994, scientists confirmed the existance of two previously unknown species of large ungulates living in Vietnam (the muntjac or barking deer, and the Vu Quang ox - a type of wild cow). As such, the possibility of a large primate living in the remote forests of North America is not at all outside the realm of possibility.

This encounter is one of the most compelling I have read to date.

Why was the Coelocanth classified as extinct until one was caught off the coast of Africa in 1938?

Also, every animal you can imagine has been hit and killed by cars and trucks.... yet not one bigfoot has ever been killed on a road or highway.

Then why don't you go out there alone again or with a friend and record it and take pictures of it? A small recorder and digital camera can be bought for under $100.

Reread the article. Nowhere does it say it's been proved.

You tell skeptics on here they will change their mind if they go out with you and have bigfoot throw rocks at them or you put a coat covered with animal scent on them. You say you know people that live in areas where bigfoot is and they don`t like it when others come and stir them up because your friends then have to deal with bigfoot after the rebel rousers leave. Now you say you don`t have a lock on where they are? So in previous post you act like you know where they are and when called out on it, you now say you only know the states but not the locations.

I`ve already said it on here several times before, but I`ll say it again. Don`t get your panties in a wad because someone is a skeptic. I`m not saying 100% that they don`t exist, but I find it highly unlikely after decades of research and tracking. The reason is because there are supposedly people that live in those remote areas that say they see and hear bigfoot quite often. For decades we have people saying they live near them and see and hear them. So real geuine scientist and trackers go to where all of this activity is, but they never see them.

For those that say, we find new species from time time, that may be true. But scientist stumble upon those species. On the other hand, there have been hundreds of scientist actually looking for BF for decades, exactly where the so called sightings and stories come from. But have yet to find anything. THey actually comb those areas with expensive equipment and always come up empty. That`s why I find it hard to beleive. If they had only been searching for a few years,that would be one thing. But decade after decade all over the world and no BF. Just seems like a stretch to me.
Whine all you want. No i don't have a lock on them. I do know where some hang a bit. There are quite a few although you don't know that. Trackers etc do go to these places.And the do see them on occasion. It costs money to do this stuff and a lot of time. Why should anyone just pony it up to you joe the nonbeliever. Once you actually get to know some of these people then you will understand.

Don't believe i don't care a bit. Get your butt out there and away from a computer and you might learn something. You comment that i should take me a language comprehension tape with me shows a very inexperienced person. I don't listen to audio tapes out in the field.

I constantly run into Mopes that say they camped from here to heck and back all alone and with no fire and never had an experience. Why would you go do so much camping and not have afire. Unless i am bigfooting then i always have a fire.Multiple individuals all across the world by themselves and camping with no fire! SURE! Go back and read this thread or the other recent one and you will see a couple that posted right here.

Look this over.

Hikers take flight when what they thought was a bear resembles Bigfoot

If people don't know what they're looking at they speculate and convince themselves it's an animal what they want to see or they totally refute it One of the issues I have with a lot of BF enthusiast OR those denying existence is that they have no outdoor experience and don't know how to identify wildlife sightings and sounds or photos.

It is very hard to get a picture. You have to be ready at the exact moment.Anything i have seen moving was moving way to fast through the brush to even think about a phto I myself don't really have to have me a photo and the work just to get one is very time consuming and costly.After about 3 days i am wore out and say to heck with these critters i am going home. Seeing glimpses of some animal is a lot different than getting a photo.Another thing i have noted is that once i am around and they are moving in around and surrounding and crashing brush and stomping feet and shaking tress and throwing rocks it is a great rush and at the same time i am wondering why in the hell i wanted to do this anyway. I have only taken 3 guys to the woods with me and only one would ever go back. These things sense when you are looking for them and get more elusive. Laugh all you want or deny it, it won't change my day one bit.

PS. I own several digital cameras.To enhance digital photos you really need at least a 16 Mega pixel camera to equal the old 35 mm film. I have about 2k invested in BF'n equipment.
Try this. Take your Digital camera out with you and do it for hey two weeks even and then show us how many wild animal photos you have. You need to be within at least 50 ft. Just the same distance you would be expecting me to take a BF photo. That's fair isn't it. You are telling me to go get you a photo so now i am telling you to go get a photo and then you will learn how hard it really is.
