My family and I go hiking in the Ozarks every year, usually early in the year when it's still chilly. We do wear jeans if it's brisk out, so
there's nothing unusual about that. We also tend to break off the trails now and then, so there's nothing unusual there either. And we do take a
camera, our phones and a video camera with us, and lastly, we do tape ourselves while hiking. This clip really looks no different than many we've
taken ourselves, so none of that points to a hoax in my opinion. I tend to agree with those who think this is simply another hiker, or perhaps a
hunter. He could very well have been relieving himself and got interrupted. He is walking in a funny sort of crouch, but maybe he was trying not to be
seen. I'm surprised the hikers didn't notice him, but they may have been so busy swatting mosquitos that they didn't see him.
