They don't go to work, they don't have to hit the store before it closes, they have no real pressure or time constraints. So just how much time for observation of humans do you think they have had? While it unnerves us to consider it, they aren't stupid and while they may get "context" of some things wrong we make things too easy for them.
Now ask yourself, strategically, what better way to keep tabs on humans than staying in the shadows doing recon? We leave our blinds up, we leave our homes surrounded with trees and shrubs for cover, homes are built with so much insulation they are more and more soundproof. Once a week we may have a BBQ or mow the lawn, laundry is done indoors while we sit in AC and watch TV. Sadly I'll add since the invention of invisible fencing we leave our pets out assuming just keeping them in the yard they'll be fine. We stick to trails while hiking, we stay in designated areas in parks and camping.
Humans "assume" a whole lot.
While we're off chasing stick structures and casting tracks I've only run into a handful of folks willing to think as a Bigfoot and strategically go in at carefully considered pinch points to verify these theories are correct. All the gear and camera's are of no use if you can't find them. All the bluster in the world won't help you if you can't get in, and then be able to extricate yourself either.

To get this thread back on track, I just wanted to add that I was especially intrigued by the eyewitness accounts stating that Big Foot's eyes glowed red, seemingly with their own interior light. That's creepy as hell. If it's not eye shine (as mentioned above), what could cause that?
My siamese cat's eyes glow red at night, but that's eye shine from the moonlight.
"10,000 may be a worldwide population..." Based on...?
Hardly a number that can easily avoid human detection. Especially when all like mammals are well known to fight for territory, fight for mates, act carelessly in their youth, come out in the open in times of hunger, etc. And yet we have zero evidence for any of this aside from inconclusive noises and empty testimony.
So how many so-called Bigfoot hunters do you know that do more than go out in the woods, poking things with sticks? I can name a small handful, myself.
I'd say that today's technology is a bit more advanced than the covered wagons and hand carts of the pioneers' day. Speaking of the early pioneers and fur trappers; where are the thousands of sightings they had?
There are over 380,000 miles of roads in National Forest areas, with over 1.7 million vehicles traveling those roads each day. (link) Add all the local forest areas, and you have almost triple those numbers.
There are hundreds of thousands of forestry workers in many fields who cover the forests each day. Add the millions of researchers, local hikers/campers, tourists, etc, and you have millions and millions of people who dot the woods in which the most remote area is thirty miles from a road. All the people who claim to have seen Bigfoot, compared to those who had opportunity to do so, is less than a fraction of 1%. Not very good statistics.
So, even with the best technology at hand, considering the success record for finding Bigfoot, that is indeed pretty much the scope of Bigfoot search/research.
Its something I said. As in, ya maybe there worldwide population if they existed is pretty low, ie 10,000. I mean who would know. Besides lets just say Bigfoot is real and exists. How do you suppose they have stayed allusive for practically not only hundreds of years but all of practical human history?
In fact the fact alone that they exist pretty much rips up a whole lot of what we would call history and even what we would know of so called evolution and our place here on planet earth like cheesecloth. But hey! You know! This is all theoretical. So don't take it so seriously.
Well I would suppose that they have learned about 50,000 years ago to keep a low profile or there more hairless neighbors would be attracted to there shenanigans.
You know we are accustomed to having it easy, in my opinion human evolution just may have been the easiest road that there is in the cosmos, we dont have any natural competitors that are on our level, we dont even have a natural predator, ie something that is just as smart and intuitive as us and can kill us just as easily even with satellites from space.
...but if Bigfoot existed, and have been lets say evolving alongside humans for the past hundreds of thousands of years? Do you not think they may have learned a thing or two in all that time?
In fact whats even more disturbing is that fact that if they did exist, our downright ignorance and blindness to all of it that have been going on right under our noses, would speak volumes to a great many things.
So what are you trying to say. That your a Bigfoot hunter, and that vid you posted was not as I originally thought a poor attempt at humor. But an attempt at a documentary on the total ineptness of so called Bigfoot hunters that are out there?
Now that is totally a shocker.
Actually there are plenty of stories from back then as well, even going back to the first pioneers as well, not to mention the natives as well. So were are they thousands of stories they had? Long dead because they did not have commendations and print to make it convenient for you today, in fact most of them who so called "conquered the west" could not read or write. But even with all that, plenty of stories out there if one were so inclined to look.
But hey, here is a story that survived, thanks in part to one Teddy Roosevelt, who recounts a story told to him in a book he wrote The Bauman Story
Yes! But what is your point?
. If it turns out that there are a species of primate out there who has existed all this time. That would say something, it would say humans are not very perceptive even with all the advances and technology to something that has been hiding right under there noses.
Or there is something more going on then just what we believe, or possibly even imagine. Or not.
That vid shows quite well the scope of Bigfoot search and research. Its why I refer to it as a documentary. It clearly shows the total and complete ineptness of humans to achieve such a thing as search for Bigfoot.
