The problem I have with those books, though quite interesting with lots of room for speculation, I personally once or twice a year, trek it solo into
the wilderness, sometimes for a week or two, and other times for a whole month.
I am alone, usually more, and hopefully much more than a hundred miles away, if not more from the nearest human being.
My goal is to get as far away from other people as possible and survive, on my own, with minimal provisions, with just what I'm carrying and what I
can find, trap, dig up, or gather, to sustain me.
Never once in all the years i've been doing this extreme solo getting away have I ever seen or detected the slightest sign of anything that would
indicate a bigfoot prsence, and, on several occasions I've been in remote areas that were reportedly bigfoot territory.
I'm not hunting bigfoot, but, when you recreation like I do, you get to know the wilderness in developing those forest smarts because if you don't,
you can wind up as tasty vittles for cougar, bear, wolves, or just the worms and beetles when you injure yourself.
Some people like the idiot from Into The Wild
, think they can traipse off into gentle mother nature and she will provide. Nope.
It's not easy living off the land in the wild. You can starve to death very easily.
If there's food around, there's probably other things that have stomachs that are looking for it in addition to yourself, and/or things with
stomachs stalking things with stomachs that are preoccupied with trying to fill their stomachs.
Berry bushes in the US are like African Plains watering holes. Lots of tasty animals like birds, from Turkey, to the common Grackle, deer, pigs,
antelope, and any number of other herbivorous sorts visit these bushes, and a good predator, like cats (much smarter than you might think you think
they are) will blind themselves away in wait for any sort of delicious berry loving animal to come along.
Cats, as a rule can take down, kill, and eat anything 3x their own weight.
can weigh in around 100 - 200lbs.
A single adult cat can thus effectively prey on anything in the upper range of 300-600lbs.
Cats are throat killers too. They make for pretty quiet killers when the prey can no longer breathe, or make noise, and they'll drag anything they
like anywhere else they feel more comfortable.
People picking berries? Easy easy easy for a cat to GTA on a person and drive off into the deeper bush on silent feet with a mouth full of McDonalds
fattened domesticated berry picking human to keep for awhile.
Does bigfoot exist?
I've never seen any sign of it, and I'm certain I've more experience and familiarity with the environment than these idiots that go running off
into the forest to bang on trees, make calls, and psych themselves into a frenzy over something that they're entirely way too eager to believe in.
