If you know 50% of them were a hoax or misidentification; which 50% would you toss out? The problem is that you cannot police your own ranks.

You want a 'good one' that would make us all believers; where is the report of the one that ran into the road, was hit, and taken to be examined?
I do not know if that has ever happened anywhere, but I would bet it would be TOUGH to get ahold of any 'official documentation'...confirming that is what indeed happened.

I once saw a horse that was hit in the road in Massachusetts and every police car in the area responded. Our police are curious just like we are. They will respond to a bear being hit because they want to see. If a trucker hit one of these things it would be all over the CB (back then) and ever police car in the state would have responded. Today it would be instantly on the internet.

If something would be killed and it was strange and unusual; people would know. If they are out there; they could be hit by vehicles.

Today they might even collapse on the side of the road when they came down with the corona virus!

Be honest...if you saw a post on here where this very thing happened, and someone had posted the story, pictures, video, etc...would you believe it was real or would you instantly call it a hoax?(someone making the whole thing up)

He is leading you in the conversations that take us nowhere. What he thinks means nothing to a person seeking knowledge about these creatures. This is what time wasters are all about. They will keep running you down rabbit holes.

Spring is here and plenty of rain as well. A good dark rain suit( under a Ghille suit, not mandatory but a real plus.) and a chair to sit in at night in the rain out in the woods along a creek, etc. Get it all smoked by a campfire etc for scent control, boots also and gloves as well.No cellphone usage or to even have on. Keep the wind blowing into your face. Sit the chair very close to a tree to break up your silhouette. Use a cough silencer for any coughs. Deer hunters use them as well. Quite a few have been successful using this type set up.

Why do you think I waste so much time on here? I want to see the proof.

Yes, its been in the 50s and 60s here off and on the past week, Im going to email my contact in southern OH and see if we can set up a day, within the next couple weeks would be perfect for me, Im slow at work right now, so I can take the time to spend the night out there.


Im not sure about hiding my scent though, I dont think the guy ever did this at his place, and he didnt mention it being a factor in whether he sees them or not, so, IDK, do you think its necessary?


There is also a big park in Germantown, OH I want to stake out, the park closes at dark, but they do have hiking trails and its a HUGE park, so I doubt anyone would notice me camping out there as long as I didnt have a fire or make noise.
