I would have shot Patty. Absolutely ID'd by my definition. You?

 

I can appreciate your zealousness, but what criteria would you have used to determine positive identification in those few decisive seconds?

 

Me? I would have shot it on film just like old Rog...

Its size.

 

Bob Gimlin said it looked huge.

The tracks were deep too.

 

But its an undocumented animal. I cannot hire a guide to take me out to location X and shoot ONE over the hill male with one foot on a banana peel while helping me avoid jerks in monkey suits.....and pregnant females, and juveniles, etc.

 

It doesnt exist.

 

So Im making this up as I go along simply drawing from my years of hunting experience. I hope it keeps me out of the pitfalls.

 

Im not out to shoot a "trophy".... I would never hunt a great ape or even a Baboon. Not my cup of tea. I eat what I hunt or Im killing predators trying to eat my property.

 

Its only about proving the species real, which I find important, for them and us.

I would NEVER shoot at anything I couldnt ID.

 

But Im pretty confident that with a 3x9 scope in that position I could have accomplished that.

 

No tough talk here. Complete honesty.

 

I would have shot Patty. Absolutely ID'd by my definition. You?

 

I pray to the good lord that someone wasnt trying to punk me with a super awesome looking suit....

 

But I dont know how to end this mystery without taking some sort of risk of a hoaxer out there.

 

 

 

Agree with you. With a scope and where the subject is - you could have told what you were about to shoot at.

 

Also completely agree on Patty.

I hope so! Im counting on being able to positively ID the target. Which is not easy as its an undocumented species. I have the PGF to judge by only.

 

But if I think I see a zipper? Im gonna have to let it walk.

Zipper, baggy around the arms/legs or an obvious mask - yes. You don't shoot.

 

Patty displayed none of those.

If Patty was a dude in a suit? 

 

I could be in trouble.

I'm glad Gimlin didn't shoot her. After all these years watching her on film, I feel like I know her personally.

If a zipper is visible how about pinging a few rounds near the hoaxes to scare them straight? LOL
