Have there been reports out of the Bluff Creek Area in the last few years?

Because, if not, how can the site at this point be nothing more than a bit of the Folklore? I for one don't feel either side has made their case,believer or skeptic. 50 years later you can remaster the film as much you want, it's likely as far as it's going to get.

I don't know the answer to your Q.  This being the BFF you will find some pretty knowledgeable poster will soon have your answer.

 

Meanwhile...  For several years before the PGF event there were occasional reports- at least of prints and some sightings.  This is why Roger and Bob went to Bluff Creek area initially in the first place. That is, to see and film reported Tracks of Bigfoot reported in the area.  Those were in bad shape by the time they actually arrived a long time later.

 

I am told old hunters in my area Duck Hunting was much better in decades past and not nearly so good now.  Maybe Bluff Creek could be that way.   Maybe it was a hot sport for a few years and then went cold.  I don't know.  

 

It would not surprise me  if we went another 50 years without a sighting or report of Bigfoot in the Bluff Creek area.  I also would not surprise me if suddenly we had multiple reports spring up in a short period of time at Bluff Creek.   You ask the great Q.  I will paraphrase with:  If Patty was filmed at Bluff Creek shouldn't there be at least more occasional track reports there at minimum if not another outright encounter?.

 

Finally, if the PGF is of a real creature, it shows how hard it would be to expect to capture another on film since 50 years have passed from Roger and Bob's success.  This might also suggest the breading numbers are extinct now or close to extinct.

Agreed, I think a spot could be hot for BF for 1 day, 1 week, or years.   My opinion is they are nomadic or migratory so there may be a pattern to their travel or not but I believe that a majority of them travel.

Agreed.

 

I see it basically as a pleasant pastime for those involved.  Arguing the finer points of PGF arcana back and forth like some do baseball statistics of teams from decades ago.  Memorizing batting stats from 60 years ago probably won't help you win any new games, but some people find it enjoyable.  

 

No one who already has their mind made up is going to be convinced either way at this point based solely on the analysis of the film.  You either believe it or you don't.  The 4K remaster  was a great addition to the field of study, but I doubt that it made any new true believers nor turned any believers skeptics.  

 

It's historically important in the field and a pretty singular piece of evidence, but the trivia doesn't really appeal to many... myself included.  But, to each his own...

I find the film to carry much more significance than baseball games, and 'stats'. 

 

We're talking about, and looking at....an evolutionary cousin to us 'modern humans'.

 

And, for the scoffers of the world....if the film was a hoax...then we're looking at the greatest "'hoax" ever pulled-off...as far as a guy wearing a suit is concerned. That alone, is still significant.

 

It is, in fact...the uniqueness of this film that keeps people logging-on...and talking about it. 

 

And, I predict...it will continue, for a very long time to come. ;)

Northern California has remained a “hotspot”.... absolutely!

I agree with you that we have gone as far as we are going to get with the PGF as far as it being considered proof that will sway a skeptic or a believer from their already settled beliefs.  

 

Watch the 4k version.  Read Munns' book.  If you don't believe that it is film of a living, breathing creature after that...then no amount of arguing over film speed, camera type, or anything else will sway you.  

 

The next generation of people who will search for this thing (if it is not found) will be a generation who grew up in the digital age with virtual reality and deep fakes.  Video as evidence will carry even less weight with them.  

 

Like I said, the PGF is a singular (up to this point at least) piece of video evidence.  However, video as evidence will suffice for some and lack for others.  The number of people who will change their minds when presented with PGF trivia is negligible.

The landscape of northern california has changed a lot. Wildfires, flooding, human and town population growth, roads, trails, etc.  Should be pretty obvious by now, BF is not inhibited by geography.

 

^ forgot to mention the massive cannabis fields that drug cartels and now, legalized operations have built. The cartels redirect water sources, trash the wilderness with chemical waste and other garbage.
