  2. https://www.peninsuladailynews.com/opinion/pat-neal-the-backcountrys-sasquatch-people/ What? Sasquatches pay to "exercise their native rights"? They don't even have any money! What do the sasquatch lawyers have to say about this? Oh, and BTW..........who is paying these lawyers if sasquatches have no money or assets?
  3. Is there any wonder why these folks were met with such ferocious opposition?: http://sasquatchgenomeproject.org/sasquatch_genome_project_016.htm
  4. So if they are not ruled "human" (and remember, DNA is here now and will likely play the defining role in the ruling, not such 19th Century Darwinian considerations as tool use), then we have a very rare great ape that immediately gets endangered species listing, and the years and years of study under federal authority begin, because tge creatures obviously migrate back and forth internationally in Canada and the U.S. States lose, especially western states..........again. But if they are ruled of the genus Homo, states lose even BIGGER. All aboriginal relations are with the federal government, not the states. The states don't even get much of a partnership. They just get to help pay with services. So how does Uncle Sam begin a political relationship with such a primitive race of "people"? Well, you have to find the sasquatches some appropriate representatives. Like who, we might ask? Lawyers, of course. Probably the variety who specialize in Indian affairs...........

  6. So what is a "human"? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_taxonomy#Hominina Well, the paleoanthropologists haven't really nailed that down yet, have they? Looks like we need some lawyers, no?.............

    Bigfoot Odyssey - Episode 9, Rez Squatching in Nebraska

    Oh I misheard then. I was actually listening on my phone as I got ready for work. Thought Barry referred to him as Manny. A very funny dude.
  8. Come with me, please, as I openly explore this theory........... Would a "caveman" of the genus Homo, but a species other than sapiens, necessarily have the same human rights as a Homo sapien? After all, they might not have any spiritual recognition, so why the need for religious freedom? They have no history of tool use, so why the right to keep and bear arms? On and on........... Oh, BTW, Geico is an acronym for Government Employees Insurance Company. I bought their coverage as a GI in Alaska in the 1970's because of their great rates for active duty personnel. It was only later that they referred to themselves as "Guy-co" and went after the public. So maybe their caveman series was in inside joke?..........and the joke really is on the cavemen?

    Bigfoot Odyssey - Episode 9, Rez Squatching in Nebraska

    That's Elvie... He is the one I share my May 28th 2018 sighting with. He saw more of it than I did. He's a character...
  10. The baby is moving it's arms, torso and head. Did they have a little kid dressed up in a suit also? That part to me has always added legitimacy to the film - having the baby in her arms move pretty much only like a real, live animal could do seems extremely hard to fake to me. If someone hoaxed that part, it was an extremely good hoax.
  11. I agree. A coverup of the existence of sasquatch is not necessarily a criminal act. It's just immoral, especially if done because they don't want to deal with a whole new level of aboriginal human rights. And I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that is exactly what is happening and why. All other considerations are falling to the side. This coverup in North America most definitely has been ongoing since at least 1958, and may have begun as early as the late 19th Century during or just after the Indian Wars. That would put the coverup at 60-150 years now. It has only been since the PG film that it has gotten more difficult for them, and their time is likely running out. I suspect these creatures will either go extinct or be discovered within the next 50 years or so, and I'm thinking it is most likely to be discovery, even if in Asia first.

    How dangerous is it to be BiGFooting alone?

    Most countries cherish and protect their agriculture. The Prez is trying to level the playing field, but its not easy.
  13. I know it's not your position but politics doesn't mean conspiracy. A lot of people confuse the two. A conspiracy would involve a cover up is when there is a real incident and a deliberate decision is made to hide the details. I know it sounds harsh but there is no legal obligation to protect anyone in the woods, regardless of who owns those woods. The political angle here is to just ignore it all unless there is a legal reason to address anything. Then say you did all you could within your ability and obligation to do so. Everyone wants to save children when they go missing and a legit effort is made to search for missing adults. Bottom line is if people are not found, oh well. We have a budget, we can't spend it all searching for mysteries and whatever else. No one is thinking, "Gee, I hope no one finds out Bigfoot and UFOs are involved" Then you have a guy like David Paulides who shines a light on the record keeping practices of bureaucrats. Well, he has found chinks in the armor of government. Now what? Nothing to investigate anyway.
  14. So is everybody else; environmental organizations, journalists.........county supervisors and county sheriffs........who are the people who do keep records. When residents call in fear because something is in their yard scaring the Hell out of them, these folks have a history of responding. Consequently, we have a number of reports (and usually official, documented police reports) from local law enforcement officers like everything else they respond to. Not the NPS, USFS, BLM, USFWS, or state/provincial fish and game or resource management agencies. The local authorities are more vulnerable to local voters than the state and federal authorities. 1) To monitor a potential problem 2) To consider their best options for action/inaction/deniability 3) To help keep the lid on a pot that they've been trying to keep contained for at least a half century now, and likely longer

    Have you seen this yourself? This happens with all animal tracks. Key words from your comment: snow, pasture and yard. I have seen this. A cougar passed by me in close range while I was snow shoeing. I went to the trackway. Cougar tracks, snowshoe hare and deer tracks. They all 'appeared and disappeared' and re-appeared in cycles. A little wind and snow fills in tracks quickly. Air currents are highly variable with eddies, precinct vortices. Tracks get filled in very quickly. I watched the cougar and yet most of its tracks were covered in a matter of minutes. Same can happen with sand. I do not subscribe to the 'UFO drops off a scouting animal and then picks it up to 'download' the mission' scenario.
  16. They are political to the bone so whatever they need to do to protect they interests is what they will do. Even if they do keep records on BF sightings, why would they spend their resources chasing or investigating it, other than to give it a file name?
  17. Or inholding land owners they want gone and who refuse to sell out......... Now that's an interesting thought, no? Are you suggesting that they refuse to even keep records on sasquatch reports within their areas of responsibility? Why might that be? Deniability? They keep and zealously desire to obtain every other kind of such data, especially on the flora and fauna, and including human visitation and activities. You can't go anywhere in a national park that they either don't corral you into or require a permit to access. You can't even film commercially without a permit. Les Stroud paid several thousand dollars in fines for filming in Kenai Fiords National Park in Alaska without a permit..........and, come to think of it, that's where he had his "maybe" encounter with a sasquatch. Wanna' bet the NPS doesn't care a whit about that, but loved Stroud's money?

    Bigfoot Odyssey - Episode 9, Rez Squatching in Nebraska

    Just wanted to say the Rez Squatchin FB live from this morning was hilarious and informative. Guest Manny or "fat boy" had a lot to say. Sounds like there is a lot of worthwhile activity in that research area. If you check it out, Manny is NSFW.

    Yeah, but did you ever consider the fact that you're feeding your political and ideological enemies some of the best cuisine on Earth while they send you back restrictions, wolves, taxes, and counterproductive policies? What would happen if you took a small loss for a few years by selling your beef overseas at cut rate prices and forced the urban aristorats to eat their rats instead? I've never eaten wolf, but I have dog and rat. Rat meat sucks. It's stringy, Nasty. Dog is certainly better. But who knows? Maybe the environmentally considerate urban princesses out there might learn to love rat meat if she knows she's saving the planet?
  20. Can't say I looked into it extensively but from what I have seen, police-like employees of the NPS serve as riot control, mostly in DC, in the event of protests. I would imagine they are needed for human type police work when needs arise on NPS lands. Drugs, fugitives, etc. I do not believe the NPS has dark secrets regarding BF. I think civilians have the most interaction and information and whatever evidence collection.

    Need Help In Central Texas.........

    Pretty dry out here, but still a few moist spots where parts of the creek are still holding water, and creating a little traffic.....nice pick of Lulu, her coat really blends in, easier to see lil Rusty.

    The report would have really gotten a big boost from even one more picture showing at least a portion of the trackway which would show the long stride length between tracks. Since it was the last day of elk hunting season, I can well believe his mindset was on elk and not on more pictures of the tracks. It's too bad he didn't take more pictures though. My mother and sister visited Wales years ago while on a trip to the British Isles. They liked Wales. They brought me a wool tie made in Wales which I still have and still wear on occasion.
  23. One way to maybe determine what animal the tracker was on could be to follow the locations the tracker pings back, whilst you may be a ways behind the creature sooner or later it is going to leave tracks, scat or hair. If you can track it near a lake or water source then wouldn't we be able to determine it's footprints if it leaves them in the mud or wetter ground? I'm thinking even if you weren't able to immediately follow up if you know it was at point x at a given time then it would be relatively easy to comb a smaller area for tracks, if you found only deer and bear tracks then you have your answer. Norseman hit the nail on the head, the data is really only of use if you know what you are tracking. But it could be a good way of locating evidence of the animal - whatever that is.
  24. ah, Paulides. Easily writing off more mundane and natural explanations. and I believe some of them are more BiGFo0T than not, but he does easily write off mountain lions. Especially when it comes to cases of children or the elderly.
  25. While within the national academic community Meldrum probably gets snickers of ridicule, I would venture to say that Meldrum is probably the most famous professor at Idaho State. Who else among them has had as much TV and media exposure. I think because of that the university has given him a lot of latitude to explore the BF phenomena. Certainly his BF interest has generated a lot of side income for his family. Some of the professional skepticism could well be based as much on jealousy as any other factor.

    Its true. Those big beautiful meadows in Yellowstone? Will all be gone in a couple of generations. Yanno what else beats back trees and promotes grass growth? Cows and sheep. Not allowed on Park Service but on Forest Service they are. And BLM. Its the backbone of many western states economy.

    Thanks for that OkieFoot, it sounds pretty interesting and well worth a read. If the find is genuine and the trackway is way out in the middle of nowhere then I'm reasonably confident it wouldn't be a hoaxer, but as you say, that relies on a single individual telling the truth. Then we are in the realm of trying to explain what animal made the track and ruling out the obvious ones until we have a prime suspect and as Sherlock Holmes says "when you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." I'm actually from Wales, the tiny country next to England with all the mountains and castles!!!! It's been pretty nice here considering we normally get a lot of rain, had a few really hot days but it feels like autumn is on it's way here very soon. Climate is quite similar to Ireland actually but usually a bit colder in winter!
