That culture existed 17,000 to 21,000 years ago in France.   Did they beat the migration from Asia

Clovis is older in North America, so the theory would have to be that Native Americans discovered Europe.

But they got bored and came back home...

Not before introducing primitive Europeans to modern technology though.

And the rest is history.

The problem is archaeology still does not have the timeline even near accurate for human occupation of the Americas.

Clovis first still is having influence by making academics too timid to challenge a recent discovery as opposed to a much older one that is evident at this point and was pre Clovis

MIB,  relative to your mountainous area I think the BF picture taken several years ago on Silverstar Mountain in Skamania County WA might be pointing to something.      At the time it was taken the mountain was covered with snow.   Highly doubtful humans could have even gotten up there.   The road up there is difficult in the summer.   But in the winter here, the snow levels move up and down and are between 2000 and 3000 feet.    BF may, for reasons of its own, cross snow crested ridges,  to move from one snowless and relatively warm valley to the next.      The ridges in that area go North South and have fingers that head East West.    If I were a giant adaptive creature with great climbing abilities,   I would head for those bare ridge lines and avoid the wooded clutter along the river beds down at or below the snow line.      From the air,   those ridge lines are topped with trails, that simply reflect more travel than I can attribute to humans.    Especially less used the East West segments.     While I have seen humans often on the Silverstar trail,   I have only seen one East of there on one of the ridge trails on the very ridge that the BF picture was taken. .    

 

   I think the problem with trail cameras is that we simply understand the routes taken by BF when it travels.    We assume that like lazy humans, it takes the easy way.     The one that nearly ran over me when it was traveling, was not using the easy way, which was a human trail about 500 yards parallel to its direction of travel on the other side of the creek.       I just happened to be on a human trail that crossed its path of travel.      I know there were no humans on the parallel trail.    I had been there earlier.    So if BF were human, or thought like one,  it would have been using that trail.   I think their avoidance protocol is so strong, they avoid the temptation to take the easy way, and take difficult routes and terrain because they know they will not encounter humans doing that.    That makes camera placement very difficult to predict.

While there is some controversy about the dating of the Clovis Culture but it is commonly thought to have entered  North America about 13500 years ago, having spread up from South America from much earlier times.    Point making is a technology so it is evident when something is earlier and cruder and later more refined.        So Solutrean is much older as dated in France at 17000 to 21000 years ago.    It is entirely possible that the Solutrean points found in North America were brought here by later migrations out of Europe as ancient relics or artifacts rather than tools in use.   The beautiful workmanship might have been regarded as a holy relic.    There is not enough data to know for sure.      I agree that the North American timeline of human occupation is incomplete and missing much.     We constantly find things that push that and other timelines further back.      If camels and horses originated about 44 million years ago in North America,   then migrated to Eurasia, the real origins of bigfoot or humans for that matter,   can always be suspect.      Science has put all of their eggs in one basket as to the origins of mankind.    Since primitive man was found in Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania,   that basket is considered the cradle of mankind.      But who knows what yet will wash out of some stream bank someplace else in the world and turn that theory on it's head.    It happens all the time.

I suspect that is true for them, too, we simply fail to adequately account for anatomical differences that affect what is easy and what is not.   We also fail to consider differences in visibility because of height. 

 

One of my very good friends is 10.  We've been buds since she was 4.   Think about size .. as I am to her, bigfoot is to me.   Just as there are places I stepped up easily without much thought which she struggled greatly with, there must be places bigfoot steps up easily that I would struggle with.    Things that are obstacles to me that I might assume would squeeze a bigfoot into a camera trap might actually be things they'd step over without ever knowing there was a trap to avoid.   At the same time, there may be things they'd have to stoop to go under, and so might go around because it's easier, that I'd just walk under ... same as I find true of things my friend walks under than I struggle with.

 

In other words, so far as placement of cameras, we may be missing the boat in both directions.   First, we may inadvertently assume they have to go around the same things we do but they do not, second, we may be walking around things that are not obstacles to us that are obstacles to them which we could otherwise use.

 

And then there's visibility because of eye height ... which could work out the same way.    Certainly I approach areas that might conceal something in such a way as to minimize my disadvantages and maximize my advantages.

 

It's hard to mentally walk in their shoes but we must if we are to count on anything but luck.  

 

I don't know about you, but I ponder the possibility there's some bigfoot out there having the mirror image of the same thoughts about me, figuring out what I'm up to, figuring out how my limits might be different than theirs and how the differences might affect my behavior differently than theirs, and so on.
