  2. Reasonable: The comparison is perfectly reasonable. You just reject it. It is not my theory. And Sykes research has no bearing on the similarities that we can all see on the PG film with the written descriptions of Zana. He does, however, suggest that she may be a yeti. Do you deny that Sykes noted that her lineage did not match those currently known in Africa, and thus suggested that her unknown line may have emerged from Africa a hundred thousand years or so. Zana has been involved in the study of yetis/almas/bigfoot by others, not me. My noting that might upset you, but that will only increase my zeal to do it more often. You don't want me to do that, do you? Neanderthals were human. Denisovans were human. "Hobbits" were human. Sasquatches might be human. Hell, even I'm human (or at least partly human). So? And her image is very similar to the descriptions of Zana. And you appear to have an aversion to Sykes, or those who comment on his words, as well as virtually everybody else. This discussion is about the best candidate for Bigfoot, and the poll even includes entities as vague as "forest people". Since Zana's dna the target of a renowned geneticist, and his conclusion was one of clear continued interest, I would say that Zana is "reasonable" to bring up in this discussion.

    Well P-G....there's something to be said for that. In a court of law it would certainly be a defense to say you didn't know it was a Human. The pressure would end up on the court officials to tell you they don't exist and then spend a huge chunk of change to prove it to you. I wonder if a court can fall back on the null hypothesis because if they try to do that then they're in a corner for sure. In other words, they cannot say they're not sure if the creature doesn't exist which would mean you walk- at least on murder one or two.

    For believers; do family/friends believe/support you?

    Great thread and thanks to all for sharing stories. As unlikely as it may seem and hard as it is to believe, I alone with my nearly six year old granddaughter ,who by the way does a great bigfoot yell fashioned after James Fay. Heard replys. My son and his hunting partner had an encounter or so they believe. Anyway, most of my family are fascinated by my passion for the subject. Especially , given the fact that they believe in the creature and I don't. I even have a daughter who lives near the Patterson film site. She has been on expeditions and casts foot prints.

    Good advice. I will remember that. My original plan if they do exist and I encountered one, I planned on shooting to kill without the courtesy of a warning shot.
  8. From some of the reviews it's mostly just emails he has read on air and some he hasn't . Nothing ground breaking
  9. Cool I love seeing new trail cam pics or videos of possible sightings .

    It is really easy to want one on a slab to prove existence but I know I am not prepared to pull a trigger. Even a seasoned hunter may have to think deep, is it half a step away from a bear or almost a human?

    Hear ya on that. But like I've said before, fire a round over "its" head. If it hollers out "DON'T SHOOT!" then...........don't shoot

    Thank you, Doc, really appreciate what you said. There IS such a thing as being clear-headed and consistent. It may be splitting hairs on the finer point, but if one considers it morally wrong for a hunter to grass the Bigfoot, then one should have the moral fortitude and responsibly to do whatever it takes to beat that hunter to the punch. This is why I admire Norseman so much. The man is a hunter but he has stated many times he would very much like to NOT shoot one if proof comes before his endeavor. And he feels strongly enough about that to support a scientific approach to collect DNA if we can find a definite way to pull it off. What's not to like about that? The no-kill folks should be lining up around the block to sign up for such an effort Who knows, once many of them hear of that effort maybe they will and I and a few other members would love to have them on board. Maybe some of those here who go to conferences could get the word out that the BFF is seriously considering this kind of a program? As far as this thread goes, maybe WE could be the ones who make history.

    Agreed. My biggest fear in shooting a bf would be walking up& finding a zipper on its hide with some moron inside. Second thing would be the unwanted attention you'd get, good or bad. privacy is a valuable thing,so yeah the payoff better be great to help insure my self administered vanishing act.
  14. It's not a reasonable comparison. You keep bringing this up in various threads and reiterating her height 6'6" and physical features make such a comparison reasonable. Your theory cannot be substantiated by Sykes' own research. Nowhere does Sykes say or imply or even muse that Zana was a bigfoot. Nothing beyond having a sub-Saharan African lineage. In fact, none of Sykes' work has confirmed anything regarding Bigfoot. It is purely your own hypothesis to involve Zana in the discussion, using Sykes' inconclusive analysis. Zana was human. Patty is an undefined creature which come call Bigfoot. We'll never get Patty's DNA to be 100% certain the two are not related but we know that Sykes' own research cancels out your hypothesis. Sykes never said Zana was an almasty/bigfoot.

    It is quite uncanny how folks lose perspective on what it means to value life. I don't hear all that much outrage if a hunter shoots another hunter. But Moose? Watch out. And it really kinda gets me that when Bigfoot is the target, how many detractors lift a finger to prove the creature even exists? O organize in a way that will do the Bigfoot any good? In other words? Don't want it shot? Then stop griping about the attempts at hunting them and use the time and energy to lobby science to prove it's existence. Then the no-kill proponents can succeed in their wishes for no harm to come to those BF populations that they love so much. Yep. perspective, it's all about that. Go after a hunter? Nope. Go after the ones responsible for hiding the truth from the public. Time and energy better spent if you ask me.

    Another aspect of today's tech and BF to consider... Cruise through almost any social media hunting based posts/vids etc and see the angry people from all over bashing the hunters for pursuing game animals. That reveals a lot of folks that value deer, wolves, coyotes,elk etc over human life. Then imagine the backlash at least from that peanuts gallery if an ape man(or man ape?) was killed. A potential downside would be every nutjob trying to get even with you, but if the payoff was enough I suppose you could disappear.
  19. I appreciate it inc, you go ahead and enjoy it for me. Well, ok. This comes from an area I'm familiar with that consists of rural homes that butt up to several large tracts of land forming a big block of woods/ timber that goes for miles, has water etc. This happened when the person was a kid. Short version..witness was playing in the back yard and looked up to see a hairy brown " ape looking thing" standing in the trees watching from about 40-50 feet away across the yard. No idea how long it had been there. Kid looked at it for a few seconds, got scared , yelled, threw a toy that direction and it took off. They never mentioned it to the parents or anyone else until years later , figured no one would believe. Fwiw, that's the only sighting I know of around there but some "what the...? "moments involving sounds etc rumors floating around briefly around the same time frame. So like I mentioned, "cool story bro" kind of thing.

    I'll pony up a cold brew for you, Doc!
  21. It may not be an eligible entry, but hey, ALWAYS up for a good BF account
  22. I suppose relaying a story about someone else's encounter as it was told to me isn't close enough to evidence to be considered... kind of a "cool story bro" moment I guess, even though it's from a person with a life long rep as being one of the most honest people you'll ever meet & no desire for publicity.

    Awesome topic. I've seen a bunch of the older films from various eras. My quick analysis is the conditions really impacted the ability to search. In those eras, it was a lot harder to be outdoors and travel into the areas you needed to get to. With today's equipment, GPS, all terrain vehicles, all weather clothing and shelter, etc. It's a no brainer. Researchers can focus on their work and filming their experiences. Rene Dahinden was a very interesting character. He would do very well on social media had he been around today.

    I had never been up into the Yaak valley. The bar in the town of Yaak had a bigfoot on top of it! Took a wrong turn and was presented with a no tress passing sign that said “Tom Oar Does NOT live here”. The guy from the show Mountain men. Too funny! We have only seen whitetail and mule deer the whole trip. No Elk, no Moose. Kinda weird Heck Spokane is big. And right on the jump off point to lots of wilderness.

    Field trips 2.0

    It was almost a four hour run to Lolo hot springs from Libby. Not many pictures. Sorry. We soaked in the dark and watched fireworks. We left about ten and took first FS road outta town. We camped next to kids partying all night. :/ Today we went over Lolo pass. Lots of campers on the Lochsa river. Getting fuel at Kamiah, Id and gonna head back into the woods! Two pics. Cabinet mtns- Bull river MT. Outside Lolo hot springs (party hardy camp) Its Bear. Not sure which kind.
  26. Is Wally Hersom on this board? That's a good chunk of change for a BF evidence contest (not including the failed reality show 10 million dollar bounty which never planned to pay it out anyway).
  27. Looks like Steve Isdahl wrote a book to supplement his newfound popularity in Bigfoot circles. It looks to me like this book was rushed to market very quickly because it just came out in May 2020 and there is only 1 copy left on Amazon. The price is absurd at over $20 before shipping. My bet is he ended up paying more than he should have to get it published and is passing on the costs to the buyer. He likely rushed it out to catch the momentum for sales. I am also betting he wrote very little of it. Someone probably painstakingly transcribed his long winded monologues into a book.

    The Orang Pendek Thread

    A lack of a British Bigfoot did not stop Nick Redfern from writing a book about it. I haven't read it but knowing Nick's views, I doubt much credence is given to the theory of a connection between cryptids (of all kinds), alien crafts and the many standing stones of the UK landscape.
