The funny thing is I just spent about 40 minutes back in 2015. I can’t find a person that fits in your description, but I thought I knew who you were talking about after I read the thread. That person appears to have been banned back in 2016 for something else completely unrelated to this.

The biggest thing is, this fight that we’re fighting right now is almost exactly the same fight that we had in 2015. In five years this fight hasn’t changed. That is crazy.

I once read somewhere that the very definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. Isn’t everybody tired of this? Because I sure am.

Maybe time will tell. Thanks

I am well versed in doing genealogy. That is relatives wanting the info with no labor.

Any list of $5000 winners?

And what does that have to do with "very good BF video"? Tell us which videos out of your original collection were hoaxes? Or do you insist they were all real videos of your mythical beast? I would be happy to post my link to the TV questioning of the man that played BF in you Patterson video again.

Well, ultimately, there are LOTS of people in select states, that are seeing a large bipedal creature, that appears to be covered in hair...we all know bears can walk on 2 legs, and that very well may be the explanation for some reports, but it cannot explain them all.


Many of these states with reports, the encounter/ sighting takes place in winter, (bears would not be out in winter as a rule), and if one or two happened to be out, they would certainly not be very active.


When you think about it, bears are really the only creature that someone could mistake for a Bigfoot, there are no other creatures large enough, or that can walk on 2 legs, so that in itself is interesting.


I cannot explain the lack of evidence, no one on this board can...but the fact is, MANY people are seeing a large bipedal creature covered in hair...and in numerous encounters, bears can be ruled out, so where does that leave us? Right back at square one.

Bears can easily be disturbed during their hibernating periods: https://www.animalwised.com/how-and-...nate-3229.html. They are not true hibernators like ground squirrels. If some days are warm they will even come out to forage; so it might be possible the one would see a bear in the middle of winter.

Besides bears there is one other animal that can be mistaken for BF; humans. Put a hunter in a ghillie suit and they gain weight and height. Plus they look like what many would think a Big Foot would look like. Ghillie suits make hunter look larger than they actually are. Even people in the cold wear one piece suits that make them look larger because of the insulation in the suit. At a distance it is hard to tell what we are looking at when we see one of these.

A "TIME WASTER" is somebody that sidesteps the question of which one of BF in your original thread post is real and which ones are a hoax? This is what people do with passive aggressive personalities; the attack instead of answering the question. Here is what Bing has to say about passive aggressive behavior: "of or denoting a type of behavior or personality characterized by indirect resistance to the demands of others and an avoidance of direct confrontation, as in procrastinating, pouting, or misplacing important materials."

Yes, Ghille suits are definitely a candidate for being mistaken for a Bigfoot, but NOT all cases, a person in a Ghille suit does not grow to 8-10ft tall, or have arms hanging down near their knees, plus its a HUMAN BEING wearing the suit...(naturally, if they come upon another person while out in the woods, they will more than likely make themselves known), if they didnt, they could put themselves in danger of being mistaken for an animal and possibly shot.


Another thing, a guy wearing a ghille suit will also have boots or shoes on, they will NOT be barefoot.




Im not sure if you have ever visited the BFRO website, I was on there last night...Go on there and read thru some of the class A sightings, and you come back and tell me majority of those could be a bear or a guy in a ghille suit.

Of course I have looked at them. But many do not give all of the information needed to know what they observed. Some occurred at night and some occurred when visibility might have been an issue. Rain, snow, fog can play a big roll in what we thought we saw. There are some where a passenger states what they thought they saw and the driver did not see the same thing or the other way around. People can mistake the size of what they thought they saw because they made a mistake on the distance to what they saw.

I am not claiming that ghillie suits account for all sighting. I am saying they are one piece of the puzzle. Bears walking on two legs are another piece. Just humans misidentified are another piece. Impaired visibility is another piece and I could go on.

I think some looked fake especially due to their size next to trees and the size of the steps they took while others looked promising.
