Sasquatch do such a good job maintaining their population, which is most likely fairly large, away from the prying eyes of humans, that even when one
goes looking for them, they are most likely not going to find them. This is due to a number of factors, a big one being that the majority of humans
who enter the woods are by no means stealthy enough to catch one of these animals off-guard.
This is why there are quite a few reports from hunters, as they make it a point to remain stealthy while in the woods. That, and they frequent the
woods more often than your average person. I used to think the same thing you presented to be honest, but recently I have begun to think that we may
actually be harming the species more than protecting them by not having them scientifically recognized.
I believe that currently the best course of action for us is to come up with a preservation and protection plan, strictly enforced given the
circumstances, because the forthcoming proof is inevitable. It may happen soon given that the Ketchum report may actually have the DNA proof the
community has been waiting for.
But if that project flops, the sheer interest in the species has been growing recently, which gives me hope that the proof may not be that far away.
Especially as recording technology improves. The question at this point is not whether the species exist, but how exactly they flourish amongst
humans, all over the continental United States and Canada, while remaining virtually hidden.
Honestly though, they haven't remained hidden. There are thousands upon thousands of sightings, only a small percentage of which get reported to a
bigfooting organization, which is mainly due to fear of ridicule, which means that people are in fact seeing them.
I strictly blame those who call out witnesses, sometimes brutally, because of their own ignorance of the species' existence. Even before the time I
got lucky enough to see one, I thought they were real. This is mainly because it is a logical assumption based on all the evidence that has been
collected and/or documented, from hair, tracks, audio, video, destroyed objects, saliva, stool, and even more.
At this point is more illogical to assume the creatures are myth than to say that all sighting reports are false, given their sheer number and detail,
many of those details presenting and outlining behavioral patterns that the animals exhibit. The distribution of footprint sizes based on track
measurements present a bell-curved graph, the same way it would for a legitimate animal species; and counter to what would be produced by over half a
century of hoaxing tracks, some in the middle of nowhere that had little chance of being found to begin with.
Take the 3 mile trackway recently discovered. There is no possible way a human made them, as the video clearly shows the depth of the snow, the length
of strides compared, etc...I know this is not what the thread was about, lol, but I figured I would post this before someone comes in to say that
sasquatch do not exist.
