Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
Has anyone you have run across claiming that they come in contact with Bigfoot on a regular basis, but to take a picture of one would be rude?
Or a DNA sample from eaten fruit? Betrayal?
Or a hair sample? Horrifying?
But yet Bigfoot tells them telepathically X,Y or Z and you are to accept that as fact? And if you don't? They become irate?
No one comes to mind like that? If you cant think of anyone? I cannot help you...
May I ask who are these habituators that love the lime light and seek notoriety ? I have not yet met one yet in my life time and am not sure that I will. I can say that I have done my bringing proof of what I have found to be from these creatures to this forum. The one thing I have not brought is the holy grail of proof that we all seek. The one thing that keeps me in a bind is the filming of Patty and I am still estray on that one. What I can tell you is that on one day I believe that she is real and on another day I honestly believe she is fake. Every time I stare at that film I catch some thing odd that just does not fit. Heck the stuff that I have found could have all been hoaxed on me with out me knowing it.
But the one thing I do know that has not been hoaxed were my encounters when I hunted so that I could better understand the woods. What I encountered out there was real and there was no way in h*ll that it was faked. What I discovered after that was real and there was no way that people were hoaxing me. Yetie9 I am not sure who you are and what proof you have and I really do not care. I can just tell you that the proof I have I found it on my own. If you want proof then you have to search that proof on your own terms just like I did. The truth is out there and if you have found it then you already know and understand. Like I have said many times before this just my opinion and you do not have to accept it.
I think that is hard to say as we have no idea how many times it was used, I am fairly certain it was reused at least once as there was both fresh and old vegetation used in the padding. The surface fronds for the most part where fresh and some the fronds toward the bottom showed wilting and degradation.
I think we collected 5 or 6 hairs in good condition. There was more throughout the nest and I admit we did not sift through the site in detail to pull more. We did deconstruct the nest layer by layer to understand how it was made and found a springy frame of sticks and limbs underneath that acted as a support under the foliage. There would not be enough to support any form of weight but they would keep a degree of thermal transfer from taking place.
