There has been a few sightings.....
I love the guys that "swear" they saw one.... and they haven't spent 2 seconds in the woods. Gotta take them with a grain of salt. But, I have had a couple reputable outdoorsmen say they've seen 'em.
KDWP look like fools not confirming. Almost every state around us has confirmed. It's nature...but you know the only reason they are not confirming is to keep people from "fearing". Nobody is going to move to New York City to run from a mt. loin. It would probably be more benificial to at least get the word out so the folks can at least be aware of their surroundings. Just my opinion...... ,)
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
