I cannot rep you again; but I sincerely thank you. I'm not good at prayer; which is obvious. And, sorry, I did not mean to derail the thread. I was simply explaining why I have been on here so much recently. I use this forum so I can hear the next time I have to render assistance. It's been a long battle.

Please accept my condolences for your friend's son!

Yeah, Fish ... I'm really sorry to hear that. I guess it's something everybody, or their spouse, will face at some point, but it's not an easy thing to do.

Hang in there and keep posting.

Serious question (not rhetorical):

Suppose that a week from today, you are going about your routine, maybe even just at home or in your yard; when you casually glance around & you see something. At first you think itís your neighborís dog. No; thatís not a dog ... A massive raccoon? WTF is that?

Within seconds, you know that you are not looking at anything you have ever seen before. Itís alive, thatís for certain but everything else is unfamiliar; itís eyes, the way it moves, itís proportions ... Then just like that; itís gone.

What would you do? How would you start to resolve this with yourself? I want to know if I missed something.

What you are missing is the proliferation of cameras in our world. The use of cameras is growing exponentially and it makes it harder and harder for anything to hide.

Lets say I am outside my house working and I left my cellphone in the house. I have security cameras on all four sides saving any movement they detect by a change in the pixels. So, even if I cannot shoot the picture, my security cameras could save that one shot.

The same goes for all the other cameras. I have to get a new trail camera. My camera is the old technology and six large batteries only last a few days. But the new cameras can be put out for weeks and they capture better pictures that I could dream of capturing with my old trail camera. Hunting season is about to start and millions of hunters have these newer trail cameras staked out all over the US. They want to see where their trophy is hiding. If just one of them had great pictures of a BF we would see it in the news.

You keep talking about people freezing. It depends on the person. I grew up with animals and I am not that likely to freeze. I have been around large and sometimes dangerous animals (big horses and cows). I even had a rabid raccoon that missed biting my fingers by only inches and I managed to defend myself without getting bitten. If I had a camera or cellphone on me I do not think I would have any problems taking a picture; of course I would actually have to see one first. I have spent a lot of time in the woods when I was younger and I have never seen any Big Foot - I can't shoot what is not there.
