I completely understand, but I can give no proof other than my testimony. Its enough for me that I believe what I saw.

You keep saying you have photos. I have asked very nicely several times for you to post them, can you do it now?

I am not holding you off. I will get to it. Sorry, but I missed your asking. I have posted them before about 2-3 times before in the past.. I was using TINYPICS but I read they are gone.

But you do have about 900. You also have the bodies to prove you have bear from your State's annual bear hunt. None of your bear hunters has ever bagged a Big Foot thinking it was a bear. So we have no evidence of the one; but plenty of evidence of the other.

As far as smelling something awful when you thought you had the first encounter; bears love septic tanks. Sometimes they have been stuck in septic tanks: https://thechive.com/2016/12/15/incr...cavator-video/. In my neighborhood some people have had the covers of their tanks removed. The bears like the fat that is floating on the top in these tanks. After having one of these 'tasty' meals I would not think they would smell that great! It might also be the difference between a 'brown bear' and a black bear!

I would like to add about all of the Big Foot tracks that we now have the technology to prove they came from an unknown primate. So far nobody has been able to do that. When teams went to the Himalayans to test their mummified creatures and tracks; everything came back as bear, goat or dog.
Ive seen this in relation to other hair samples, where the tests come back as being a deer, or a dog, cat, etc...honestly Im a little suspicious of ALL these tests coming back as normal/well known animals...


Im not saying I do not trust the testers, the test itself, etc, Im just saying, there is something 'amiss' going on here imo.

And I feel the same way about you believers. When you have a college professor that works for a college that also does DNA testing and he has never had one of his castings of a Big Foot track tested for DNA! My suspicions are that many are quietly getting the testing done and when it comes back as bear, goat, dog or human then you ignore the results and keep them secrete. My feeling is that many of these labs would love to prove that there is something unusual; they just have not found anything.

There is no middle ground. You believe everything points to Big Foot existing. Trees bent, limbs stuck in the ground, the smell, it all means only one thing to your group and you will never rule out anything as a natural effect of weather or nature.

Great response. Luckily, Im not a Matt Moneymaker, and dont think everything is Bigfoot sign. Sure, there are some strange things in the woods, Hell, I could probably go in my woods and take hundreds of pics, and claim a Bigfoot did it.

Seems that everyone glosses over as to what benefit has anyone gleaned other than a few exposed hoaxers.

UpstateJohn isn't being paid to do this. Nor are the thousands of others.
The believers are paid nothing.
