While I would like to believe this is authentic, we can not rule out the possibility of either a hoax. This shelter could have been built in less than a day, and there is no absolute proof that anything living was actually inside.
Obviously it could not be a bear that built the shelter. The inside is very intricate in terms of architecture for an animal, so either a person built it, or a Bigfoot. Could a person have built it, and then later a bear decided to occupy it? Possibly, but the hole in the front was perfectly round, which indicates to me that it was either freshly made, or someone or something is performing upkeep on it.
I spent some time attempting to figure out how the creature was positioned, if in fact it were a Bigfoot. The only possibility I could see was that it was lying down on its right side, with the lower half of its body stretched further back into the structure. The head would be on the left of the screen, and it seems like it is almost lying on its shoulder, semi propped up.
With all things considered, I didn't see anything moving, and this makes me question whether there was anything inside that was living, and the circumstances, in my opinion, are not conducive to this being a Bigfoot.
If they thought there was something in there, their actions would have been different. Their actions prove to me that this was staged. You have to really think about the situation to come to this conclusion logically, and I am convinced that anyone who does so will agree with me.
Note that I am a supporter of Bigfeets, lol, so I definitely wanted this to be real, but I do things as scientifically as possible...And even when I don't do things scientifically, I don't let my emotions and biases get in the way or cloud my judgement.
If these animals lived in structures like this, you would think there would have been more found.
Also, I don't think the individuals in the video made a very big deal about this video, considering that they didn't promote it, and it has been around a year since this incident took place. Just adds to the mounting evidence in favor of this video not being all that the presenters would like you to believe.
The structure is man-made.
There was nothing "living" inside the structure.
In all probability this is a hoax.

C'mon now. I can see creating a hoax that would generate and render a bigger 'fooled' audience but this to me does not look like a 'viral' type video that would get them notoriety.
I don't believe for a moment this is a hoax. I will consider they may be wrong as far as a BigFoot abode but hoax?.....nope.
I say bear den or perhaps an abandoned beaver dam.

My brothers and I used to build things like these in the Woods several times a summer. We used our hatchets which were the most destructive tool we were allowed to carry at the time. We called them forts.

And I do believe he would be glad to have 100.000 views!
And can you tell me, when does something look like to get viral? It depends on how lucky you are!
Of course this man would love to get the world think he found it, why else post it on youtube?

I honestly wonder if the people with him are in on it or not if it is indeed a HOAX. This guy, who seems to have a lot of time on his hands, could easily have gone out and built the structures over a long period of time, in order to take tourists, or whoever out there to make a quick buck. Spending days camping with a "find" like this. The people seemed like they were dressed more like tourists than folks seriously exploring remote wilderness. I wouldn't doubt this is all on private land as well in order to prevent people from just trampling in and doing their own investigations. OR it could be legit. So many possibilities.
