Your understanding of this issue is not new. There are thousands of
individuals feeling the same way, or previewing it as such. I find this
totally understandable. As I had mentioned, I have many questions to
this phenomenon as well. But witnessing the creature, many of my
questions come from a different direction of course. I have no idea
whatsoever...how many of these things with this primate are possible.
The technology end of it, is a big puzzle for me as an example. If a person
doesn't encounter this animal, that is one thing. But how it is managing
to fool an electronic eye, or dodge planted web-cams, etc?
As for those that go out to find it...and do? Three individuals that come to
mind, are John Green, Peter Byrnes, and Rene Dahinden. Between the 3
of them, they have chalked up almost a 125 years of looking, tracking, and
trying to find this creature. (None of the 3 have ever seen the beast.) Rene
hunted the animal full time. He has since passed away. Byrnes and Green
are in their 80's.
I've gone over this before. I am an outdoorsman as well. Spent a lot of time
in the woods. With witnesses, in 74 and 85, we encountered such a creature.
There was no way of denying it, or explaining it off I'm afraid. (I've tried!) That
said, this does happen to other individuals as well. And my findings as an
example, are showing that more individuals on 'tree-stands' are encountering
the sasquatch - things being somewhat quiet, and above the scene.
Your questions have a lot of merit. Nothing to this species makes sense. No
carcass, no skull, no pictures really (all blurry) - I can't explain these things.
But I am researching such things. And mostly every avenue leads to a dead-
end. Some are even making things up now, they're so frustrated. All this is a
mystery - and continues to be so.
In 74 we startled the creature by accident. That told me, that we are dealing
with just another creature of the forest. And in 85, we could see the breath
coming off the animal, as it stood halfway up a hillside, shifting its weight
from foot to foot - it was still nervous. But looking at these things scientifically,
all that is involved with this entire subject; nothing adds up. I'll be the first one
to admit it. The whole thing on the species has practically gone full-circle. Many
just study available info, or work the subject with no results really. There are
Organizations, that say, that they could photograph the creature, but that's not
what they want to do. (It is rubbish.)
How can the Scientific Community follow-up on things like the smallest of
creatures; and no one can locate an 8 foot, 600 pound giant? If you were to
take a 1000 sightings, and only say...20 were legit - we have a problem. The
same goes for tracks. But when it comes time for where they live, how can
they feed those massive bodies, don't some just drop dead, or go mentally
ill, I can't explain it any differently than anyone else. Everything acredited to
this creature does not compute properly. It makes mistakes - it allowed
myself with a witness each time to see it for ourselves.
So, I agree with you - but my direction must remain the same. Until somebody
drags, runs over, poisons, or dreams one up, I don't have the answers. And to
tell you the truth, I'm more skeptical than you. Where is the damn thing -
because I do get tired of defending a spook!
