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...... ,)
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
