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).
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.
