Something tells me you guys have spent about a combined total of 1/1000th of the time Versatile and I've spent researching this topic.

Look up Paul Freeman Walla Walla and watch the YouTube videos. This is a Sasquatch family.

I have spent way more time researching elves than anyone here.

I dont need to do any research. I believe Sasquatch exists, and Ive shared my encounters here. I do, however, have a skepticism of many pics, videos and stories. I will admit Ive seen pics and vids that I can say I feel comfortable calling it a Squatch, or at the very least peculiar or strange and others are just way out there. Im not going to let myself use my imagination to see a squatch in some blurry random pics either. Like Fisheye, I really want to see undeniable proof that what I saw exists.

I'm like the Xfiles slogan - "I WANT TO BELIEVE"

Please leave tv shows out of serious conversation.

OK - so that video consists mostly of him examining tracks of something he's casting, and commenting on them in between wheezes with a few seconds of Something near the end. Since you're the "researcher", how is this supposed to convince the viewer that he/she is viewing a sasquatch family? Does watching this count as research?

I'm not obsessed with sasquatch like some here apparently are. But I've been interested in cryptozoology and have read whatever I could get my hands on since I first encountered Heuvelman's "On the Track of Unknown Animals" in high school (somewhere in the 1961-1964 timeframe). I spent a good amount of time in the woods in my younger years (particularly the southern Appalachians), and have heard things that I could have interpreted as something strange if I'd let my imagination run away from me. But no sasquatch - and no field biologist that I've known over the years who claims to have seen or heard one. Yet I've known quite a few people who have experienced what they interpreted as hauntings and who have seen UFOs (including two people who had abduction experiences). Apparently sasquatches are rarer than ghosts or aliens.

By the way, having a different opinion and different experiences doesn't make one a "hater".

Many of these sites you believe in are all promotion. Serious research does not need a lot of colors and music to promote what they are claiming. They go right into the meat of their finds with the evidence that you are lacking. Stories do not make fact. People that have made their living off of selling these stories are not credible authorities; they are salesmen like PT Barnum. If all we did was listen to salesmen we would all own a piece of the Brooklyn Bridge!

I told you this before. But you believe because many years ago you heard a noise and you saw a branch shaking. MY wife and I saw a mountain lion on a clear sunny day and only 20 yards from that creature. But that does not mean that it exist. Officially none live in PA. Unless I could have convinced somebody to come out and officially investigate; I have no proof and you have no proof. What I have is a story and that is all you have; just a big zero in the eyes of the people that matter.

The difference between our stories is that just two years later a woman hit and killed a mountain lion in Connecticut with her vehicle: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-m...76Q5ZE20110727. It's DNA showed that it came from S. Dakota and we felt somewhat exonerated because it very well could have been the same animal we chased down that dirt road in the pickup truck. But here we have a body in Connecticut and it still does not prove out case in PA. But it does prove they exist on the East Coast; even it is a fluke or accident that drove that animal this far. So where is your proof?

Sounds like a good idea. I think Paul Freeman's video is more convincing than the Patterson-Gimlin film.
