  1. Been thinking about this recently, what do you think/know they do to conceal them, their noises and all round stimulation, and keep them safe ? Not interested in non knower/believer comments, they'll offer nothing constructive to the topic of this thread. Fire at will.
  2. Yep, and yet they apparently fight on Sasfooty's porch.
  3. Good answers, thanks Guys. It's the noises that the young would make and how they'd be concealed in the main that i'm most interesting in i guess.. Good shout with the tree's SWWA.
  4. Again, again, again, we are the bait. Lure them in, they will come.
  5. Two full moons after so I've read MIB, and that's what I'm working on..;) So we have October and November since the mid 90's that I've looked at. Apologies for not being clearer, my bad. I bought this last week too. I don't notice aggression as I don't re-read the reports but just try to siphone numbers. Specific regions though yes and like I said, whitetail heavy regions too appear to be top heavy.
  6. Not sure about a total solar eclipse but i'm looking in to the Fall Equinox (Rut time) right now and finding some interesting numbers across North America, and specifically Whitetail heavy regions. It's ongoing.
  7. Yes Sir, there's quite a few too.
  8. That's the drum i've been banging for some time now. For once, human self obsession is the right thing. It IS all about us where these things are concerned. We are the bait, the lure.
  9. Cool thanks for clarifying about Cormorant Island. Vancouver Island is stunning yeah, a beautiful art of the world. I always thought they'd be going between islands up there.
  10. What Island ? Vancouver Island ?
  11. And why chasing them full stop is foolish. Now, luring them however and taking advantage of their curiosity.....................;)
  12. Trog's numbers for Maine etc there would be mirrored out west too for sure in general, the seasonal stuff I mean although maybe the Fall numbers would gain a little more on the Summer is ones. But in general they're the same. Key for me then, with a bigger western dataset, is to focus on the winter reports and any geographical patterns in those. We shouldn't forget however that to get a report we need a two way collision, a Sasquatch and a human, and we know that human outisde activity decreases more so in the winter months.
  13. Here's the full write up Kids, enjoy..;) graves_paper_for_web.pdf Inline Norse ?
  14. It's damn cold though Wes, i know that first hand. Lots of snow too, just like Wisconsin in the other graph and unlike the other States in it.
  15. Yeah I'm with you. I've always viewed it as humans equals food via farms etc, hence these reports. Found these two.
  16. Yeah I have to look in to it much more for sure, and I will imminently. The Olympics seem to be in a world of their own where numbers are concerned in general, honestly. I talked to Tom Baker who is the data Guy for the Olympic Project when he was on a London visit recently and I was kind of relieved he was finding the Olympics to be tough to nail down regarding any type of trend or pattern too from the numbers they collate. One of the only things I've found to date that makes any real, of what we'd interpret to be sense where the Olympics are concerned, is the high % of reports from home owners in the winter. Aside from that it's all over the place but I guess it can be given that it really is an Eco-system that is pretty unique and could really be thought of of being on its own out there anyway. Going back to that chart though, the South Cascades > Eastern WA are the ones to look at IMO as they swing both ways in every five year period, unlike the Olympics and the South Cascades. More digging for sure though especially with the most recent time period listed as that is the one with dramatic decreases in two zones that sandwich the South Cascades which has its highest increase, by some distance too.
  17. We are still adding BC BigTree so can't look at that yet but it's absolutely of course on the list for this very reason. 86% increase in South Cascades reports from 2010 to 2014 compared to the previous five years, with a 71% decrease in Eaterrn WA which where the SSR is concerned runs from just east of the Cascades and the start of the arid land from BC, down all the way to the Columbia. Will be good to see if the trend is bucked in a few years for this period we are currently in where the South Cascades is concerned taking in to consideration the 2014 fires. Interesting to note that in that time frame and the five years previous too, the North Cascades have seen increases in reports too as opposed to decreases in the previous two five year periods. Movement will equal reports, or should do anyway.
  18. You might be getting your jabs in but when you're using "Finding Bigfoot" to back up what you're saying, I know you're capable of being on the ropes..;) I don't know the answers to the questions, you know I don't. I'll go, in no particular order and I may add to this, States that don't have viable breeding populations. South Dakota North Dakota (possibly) Nebraska Delaware CT Massachusetts Nevada (maybe the northern part, but don't know enough about it) Rhode Island Kansas Maryland New Jersey Thats nearly 25% of States crossed off there...;) They may pass through these States, I wouldn't be surprised if they do, they might pass through to find areas that do have viable breeding populations maybe or other food sources.
  19. Why would west (the Cascades) not make sense when you take in to consideration the increase/decrease trends we see in the graph every five years from Eastern WA (which in my data includes the arid central WA area) to the South Cascades My alarm bells at work would be going off, and I trust them completely..;) Im gonna look in to this more, I think it's worthy of doing so for sure. It should be noted however that these five year trends that in talking may or may not be fire related, we will never know. Food for thought anyway.
  20. Of course there was, but that would be why you're seeing movement no, which would also then be a reason why there is such a large increase/decrease in numbers in that time period too ?
  21. West, they go west. Look at the numbers. Look at the increase/decrease in numbers to the relevant time frames and geographical zones. I don't believe that a -71% decrease in Eastern WA reports in the time period we talk of, doubled with an +86% increase in the bordering, western geographical zone (South Cascades) is a coincidence, and most especially when you consider that in the time period before that, we swung big numbers completely the other way in a role reversal, again in those same two geographical zones. Look at these trends, every 5 years, the same trends between both geographical zones, increases > decreases between the South Cascades and Eastern WA, backwards and forwards, with the largest being at the height of the fires.
  22. Norse you keep saying "49 States" and insinuate that "the majority of people seem to think they are very numerous everywhere." Neither need to be true and without reading back over the 9 pages of this thread, I certainly don't recall the majority saying anything even remotely close to that. There are areas out East that I'd bet my house on having decent population pockets, there are other areas that I'd bet my house on not having a Sasquatch within 200 plus miles, heck I'd even say the same to that one out west. There has never been a lot of reports from where you live don't forget nor within a 100 mile or so radius even though it's great habitat, I have no idea why that is. None of the answers to this poll need anyone to think what you keep insinuating, and most certainly not the majority of people. It's all about Canada and Alaska, these two places blow all reasonable talk of populations out of the water by the habitat combined with little to no people of both. Yet as far as the BFRO database is concerned, Florida has more reports than both combined. That's 17m acres to 500m acres, yet only 20m to 35m people. Sasquatch doesn't need to be everywhere to be thriving, but yes it needs population pockets and enough of those doubled with the ability to move between them, for breeding purposes.
  23. Here snow levels from Virginia and NC in Jan. Right now there's powder alerts for NY/NJ and other NE States. Here's PA. No monster blizzards this year I guess though.
  24. I missed out a crucial letter..;)
  25. I guess so, and when they get them ready, they give out "powder alerts"
