    You've been WAITING? You're time would have been better spent seriously solving the question of existence beyond opinion. Unless going around in circles ad nauseam is something you just like to do. Personally it's never been my cup of tea. On topic, these reports are compelling but people just read them and move on. Sure, they're interesting but there's thousands of them and not one shows a lick of proof. Is that okay? Must because no matter how seemingly compelling or truthful a report may sound it's a dead end. Always has been. When is enough enough for everyone? Looks like never to me. Just like the reports we read, and some are pretty amazing, people still find footprints (just like before), people still guess at stick structures (just like before), people still hear a howl or two....but that isn't progress. What WOULD be progress? A body? Well, yeah, that would do it, we ALL know that. Is it going to happen? More than likely not. So what does that leave for choices? Not a whole heck of a lot. But if everyone's fine with that then great. My 'rants' as you seem to like to call them (not too derogatory, but who's counting anyway, right?) stem from something that is hands down the EASIEST thing to do. But if everyone want to do things the hard way then go for it. I've watched everyone here fail to get proof from the field for nearly six years, including myself, but so few want, or have tried, to do things differently along with what they're already doing. THAT is what logically doesn't make sense. Not a rant, Twist, just an observation. And it's one that I find just short of impossible to understand. Always have. So, wanna report? Here's one of my favorites and it ISN'T 40 years old: https://sasquatchchronicles.com/hog-hunter-watches-bigfoot-kill-hog/

    I've been waiting for your usual once every 2 weekish hijacking of a thread to rant about how know one follows your lead. I dont believe anyone here opposes your efforts Hiflier, or gets joy in your failures for that matter. What we oppose is your constant rants in regards to others not following your lead.

    A down vote? Good. At least it shows you read the post. People have told me they won't write emails because they have an attitude about me. But since when does someone's attitude supercede the discovery of the century? Any one who writes an email is dealing with an issue ONLY between themselves and F&W. If someone is going to do that and wants me to send one also in support I will do that with no questions asked. That's the way it should work if anyone is truly serious. If MIB, Norseman, Hunster, gigantor or anyone else decides to send an email to their respective F&W and asked me to send one too I wouldn't hesitate for a second. Anyone could count on me to do that no matter if they are long time members or new members. That goes for you , too, Inc1. I would do that. Why? because I think the official truth about Sasquatch is that important. It's more important than the Neanderthals, the Naledi, the Denisovans, Flores Hobbits, an all the rest. WAY more important! Science needs the pressure put on them to say biologists, zoologists, and all the rest. I've tried to do it alone. Anyone else has also gone it alone. WHY when it doesn't have to be that way? So yeah, give me the down vote, give me a hundred of 'em, it changes nothing. Not the first time and won't be the last.

    It's because few if any ever place any pressure on science and their scientists in particular to dig in hard on the subject. I honestly hate saying this, I really do, but over the last two years I have emailed primatologists, scientists, anthropologists, DNR people, F&W people and others and let me tell you, Hunster, I quit. It's pointless to continue any more efforts along those lines. What pisses me off most, Hunster, is everyone here knew I was putting in those efforts and just sat back and simply watched me fail. THEY WATCHED ME FAIL! I think some even enjoyed watching me fail so they could say, "See, hiflier? Told you so. NYAH, NYAH!" Everyone happy now? Here's the thing, 50 people will go out of their way, pay money, and show up at an Olympic Project Sasquatch Expedition, not find a Sasquatch, but I can't get even just two people on this entire Forum to write a simple email to help put some pressure where it needs to be put. So...yeah.....I quit. I'll get to look at more pictures of your stick structures though so all is not lost, right? That should make me happy.

    ........continues to demand their sasquatch is delivered free, and that they are thanked for their strict adherence to their snitty ideology.

    There are tons of outstanding and credible sighting reports. Check these two out: http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=933 http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=15821 Despite having a deep interest in sasquatchery and reading everything I run across on the subject, both of those reports I found when using this website's excellent SSR in data analysis. Another incredible set of reports are those coming from the Ocean Shores community in Grays Harbor, WA between 2012 & 2015: http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_county_reports.asp?state=wa&county=Grays+Harbor

    Most powerful lever action cartridge

    Plains bison were imported back before statehood and three different herds established on federal lands. All three are huntable by drawing permit. Private landowners, most notably Alaska native corporations, also have herds on remote islands in the Aleutians. These are also huntable by buying permission from the corporation. Ranches on Kodiak Island in the 1930's-1970's experimented with bison as a way to reduce livestock loss to the bears. Many bison simply wandered away and became feral (ditto cattle and horses). Feral bison on the island are fair game to hunters with no permit needed, but they are never hunted intentionally due to cost and accessibility. ADFG has recently re-introduced wood bison to Alaska, which went extinct here sometime between 150-500 years ago. They have remained a native population in Yukon Territory, northern BC, and northern Alberta. At least two herds are being re-established. Wood bison are even bigger than plains bison, if you can believe that. I hunted moose, caribou, and bear with a 30-06 in Alaska for decades. After having trouble definitively dropping those gigantic moose in the Koyokuk region and losing a big black bear using the '06, I've been using the 338WinMag and 300 WinMag for the past 20 years or so. I brought my last '06 to the states and store it here for hopeful hunts. The 30-06 is simply the perfect all around rifle cartridge. Many different loads can be used with it for everything from varmint shooting to military uses (it shines as a sniper round) to medium and big game hunting using 130-220 grain bullets. Agreed. I have two lever action rifles, both are Marlins, and both feature ghost ring open sights. A 450 Marlin is in Alaska, and a 30-30 in the states. They are great carbines, are not legally maligned "assault rifles" (but serve so quite nicely), and are inexpensive.

    Looks like they do. http://www.alaskaoutdoorssupersite.com/bison-plains Interesting that the present ones are much smaller than they used to be.

    Most powerful lever action cartridge

    Alaska has Bison? I hunt with 30-06 even in the hills of WV. Never understood hunting with anything smaller. Note, my first deer rifle was a 30-30 lever action. Fun gun to shoot. I want to have a Smith take off the scope though. It's a much better up close/brush gun without the scope.

    I feel like that part of the forum doesn't get a ton of traffic and we are missing out on some great sightings to break down/discuss. Just my humble opinion. This is a perfect example. Up close sightings with interesting behavior and then the witnessing of a hunt. Pretty incredible if true.
  18. Huntster

    Most powerful lever action cartridge

    Agreed. They would certainly be no more difficult to kill than a large brown bear or a bull moose in rut. A mature bull bison in rut is the toughest native animal to kill on the continent. The minimum cartridge needed to legally hunt one in Alaska is a 30-06.

    Time to move on.

    No. He homesteaded on Twin Lakes in 1968 just before the Federal Homestead Act was ending. I got to Alaska several years later. There was still some homesteading going on under state programs (also soon to end), but I was still a GI for my first year there, and Mrs. Huntster took majority control of me from Uncle Sam, so any hope of becoming Grizzly Adams was ended before it started. But I thought was at the end of the world as it was. Even Railbelt Alaska seemed more desolate than Southeast Asia at the time. Yes, I'm married to her, am her personal servant, used to be her sex slave, but am currently in danger of being fired for insubordination and poor performance. Few knew Proenneke personally outside of Kodiak Island of the pre-pipeline era where he had worked before retirement because he rarely came out of there. Most people actually rejected by society are dead or imprisoned. If those who live apart from society are not hiding from legal justice, it is (by definition) the other way around; they have rejected society. If Mrs. Huntster does indeed fire me from my vocation, I may well become an Alaskan remote hermit for the remainder of my days, but more likely I'd live an rv gypsy lifestyle in the western states.

    Rivian Overland

    The kitchen stuff in the Rivian looks like it was designed by someone that does not cook. My camper has a stove mount attached to the side but you really do not want hot grease splattering all over the side of your camper much less all over the canvas tent of the Rivian. Induction stoves require special and heavy pots and pans and I would worry that if I cook too much I might not make it back to civilization. There is no more inefficient use of energy than heating something with electricity. I cannot think of a single charging station in my town of over 22,000. If you look at the electric vehicles registered in the State of Washington, most are zipcodes for affluent neighborhoods. Correspondingly the charging stations are found in yuppy neighborhoods of big cities. Most electric cars are 2nd or 3rd cars for wealthy people who need to show how green they are to their friends and neighbors. Some friends drove their Prius home and hours later went outside to find it steaming. They had forgotten to turn it off because it was operating electric and quiet, so they went inside with it running, the gas engine started to charge the battery, and they found it overheated hours later.

  26. Two sources (including John Green) say this happened in Spring of 1976, but the article says "last fall". John Green has details missing from the article, indicating a different source for this encounter. The SSR entry will show spring as the season.
