If you combine BFRO reports with missing 911 cases I am thinking Yosemite.

 

I actually done this before and looked for correlation, at least i started doing it anyway then typically i got led elsewhere.

 

Got to say i wasn't overly happy with what i found neither especially as i like to walk in the forests of the PNW if you get my drift hahaha

........Only 17 reports in the database for "Hunting" from the CA Counties of Siskiyou, Trinity, Del Norte, Humboldt and Shasta, and OR's Josephine, Coos, Klamath, Curry and Jackson..........

 

I must say that I’m disappointingly surprised. I would think that there would be many more.

 

........82% of the Reports are from above 2,000ft in elevation > 71% of Reports above 3,000ft in elevation.......

 

That is interesting, and it fits with the hunting pattern of deer being in the high country until snow pushes them down. At least this shows that the hunters are up there after them, and the sasquatch reports might indicate that sasquatches might be as well. 

 

Thanks for the queries, Bobby!

Thanks for the queries,

That is curious.      I have deer in my yard year round (as recently as day before yesterday)  and I live at about 270 Feet elevation.   Apparently they did not get the memo.    One was chowing down on my tomato plants after dark and I had to shoo it away.        Since BF are in the high country near here,  maybe the deer have decided come down to mingle with humans.     Most of the ones I see during the summer are does with fawns.      They like to bed down in the back behind some trees.   They must keep coming year after year because I have them all the time.

I think that’s your key. All ungulates have differing seasonal ranges, and it is usually different for males and females. Then, in the fall, they come together for the rut.

 

Caribou cows lead the spring migrations to the calving ranges. Some herds are extremely loyal to these calving areas. Bulls tend to generally follow, but once the bugs come out, bulls go up high with the sheep and hang out on ridges with the wind in their faces or on the last melting snow fields.

 

Bull moose also tend to follow greening vegetation as springtime crawls uphill, but cows with calves tend to prefer premium escape terrain; water. When standing in 3’ of water with her belly still in the air, bears and wolves are starting to swim, and moose can quite literally kick them to death.

Indeed, they’re as dangerous as sow grizzlies. 

 

Those pics were were shot by Michio Hoshino in Denali National Park in the 1980’s. Michio was a Japanese born nature photographer who specialized in Alaskan photography. He was killed in 1996 in Siberia by a brown bear that raided a large camp of people in the dead of night.

And based on the number of moron tourists kicked in the teeth by elk and even white-tailed deer not to mention gored by bison, trust me you would not want to be kicked by a moose it would probably be the last thing on your incomplete bucket list you never got to check off.  It would almost be as bad as being kicked by a giraffe but few live to tell about that.

I came awfully close once. She was just a few feet away, hackles up, ears down, and pissed off. I had bailed off my snowmobile and was standing in waist deep snow and in a tangle of brush, she was just 15’ away, and it looked like she was about to do the dance on my snowmobile. I fired a warning shot above her head with my 357 mag, and she didn’t even indicate that she heard it.

 

That sidearm suddenly seemed so small and insignificant...........
