I always loved this subject, it's why I joined actually.
Not sure what to say about what WE have learned, but I know at least
what I have learned and can share....I go "squatching" as often as I can.
They are foragers, they know there are many edibles and when they can find them including
a time of season to find certain berries.
They are opportunists, if they think they can indulge their curiosity without being caught they will. They know when people are coming and going such
as a vacation home or hours you work etc.
They are fierce hunters and gatherers, they can take down deer and other animals without them even knowing what hit them, and the forest animals know
when they are there.
They know we seek them out, and are masters of stealth at avoiding us if necessary, I believe part of the reason we have not had contact is because of
how much they watch things we do, and types of technology we have ie. trailcams etc. and they communicate to others like themselves what they have
found. Sort of like the Indians would pass down their knowledge.
I believe their eyesight and hearing is far superior to ours. They can see infrared beams at night.(Maybe why they hunt at night)
They raise and rear children just like us, however their full scientific gestation etc. is totally unknown.
They are extremely intelligent, possibly beyond us, with other abilities, maybe a slight bit of psychic (I'm skeptical about that myself) but in a
more primal/wild/feral/ instinctive way.
They hide their numbers, where as we teach soldiers to learn how to do this, it is instinctive and automatic for them, hence their little ones
becoming big ones.
They have a language, possibly a dialect. I use tagalog as an example it is universal for all Filipinos to communicate, however they may have their
own area language such as Cebuana, Pampanganian, Illocano(sp?), Negros etc.
They are fascinated by the way we live and things we do, thus my name Peekingsquatch, as they like to hide and peek around things, to watch what we
are doing. Sometimes so enthralled they forget how big they are and can be seen on both sides of a tree peeking around it at you.
They have some kind of morals, as they get a kick out of watching kids play almost as if to stop and smile sometimes at the innocence between all of
us when we are young.
They make territiorial markers, to alert others of their areas, and if you make one as a kid -they will make a larger one next to it almost out of
spite or fun.
They may possibly bury their dead, (I know this is a far stretch but we haven't really found a body) or they know what to do with their dead so it is
not found. Maybe even travel in "pods or packs" so they have an accounting for each individual.
If you get hit by a rock from them it hurts...(personal experience) they can skip rocks on lakes too from great distances!
There was actual DNA that was found and it was not Sykes bear. The mitochondrial DNA was human female with yet unknown primate.
Patterson film was real, it was female with large breasts(look closely) and can not be created even by our technology today, he did not go to his
deathbed and confess a hoax... but there were people that made fake prints for attention.
Smeja might have actually shot one, but it's "pod or pack" removed the evidence. Had they not vacated the area, they could have been another
statistic dead in the woods by unknown reasons. If they are threatened there is no telling what they are capable of. There have been people possibly
killed by these creatures. (think Jurassic Park, the one Velociraptor you are watching is only a distraction-others are beside you that you didn't
know are there) This suggests serious survival/fight or flight abilities and intelligence.
Rick Dyer will always be full of #.(can I say that?) As most people on the internet are. He is a joke here in Vegas.
You can make an entertaining show with a guy named Bobo and a press whore named Matt, but dragging a camera crew, eating sandwiches, smelling like
soda, hosting a backwoods rave party, and leaving half eaten donuts and making noise for only 2 days in the woods, based on a report from 4 years
prior -will never find one.
I know where you can, and what time of year. But you will need months by yourself of preparation, no press, no camera crew and tons of preparation to
be able to find, see and document them, otherwise I would have tried. I can't let my mortgage and family go while I do it, but the funny thing is-if
I go "squatching" back home even after a few years abscence they know it's me, the same kid they used to watch years ago. And they will find a way
to spot you and get a good look without you knowing it. They do use trees for travel and hiding too. Ever notice no one looks uP while the squatch are
tossing rocks through the woods for you to chase after??
They can smell you coming probably up to a mile away. They know if you tried to cover your scent and are near, that's why I say months of planning.
The area I know of is still very active to this day, ever since I was a small kid. It's unfortunate I didn't realize until I was older that it was
them all along.
They now know a bunch of nuts are out looking for them howling in the woods. Think of Star Trek 4 when they went back in time and got the whales,
Spock says "We could mimick the sound but it would be jibberish without the actual animal," that's exactly what Matt, Ranae, Cliff and Bobo are
doing AND teaching people to do. Notice the amount of reported sightings are starting to get less and less...?
If you are intelligent, a serious survivalist that could go in the woods for up to 2 years with nothing but the clothes you have on, (which we all
like to think we are) have more patience than a saint, tons of time and unlimited funds I can help you find them. I don't claim to be an expert, I
just know what I have learned through the years and am trying to pass it on in hopes we actual get to see one up close without killing it, then leave
it alone, after all -we all know how it will end up for the tribe that came out of the woods in India, right??
They are a part of the ecology and food chain now, and have avoided being found for a reason.
Once they are exposed to their hiding/living/tasks etc. there will be all kinds of nuts storming the woods looking for them for many reasons. The
first one that gets a trophy to mount on the wall will be a serious issue, the next will be the religious nuts that need to make them speak and be
taught the word of the lord.
They may be a sub-human species that survived after all these years, and in addition there may be clans of feral humans out there too that could be
mixed with Denisova, but that is another thread.
Again, I am not an expert and I don't claim to know everything about them, I just know what I have learned through the years and am happy to answer
any questions, based on my experience growing up with them.
