BIG FOOT

Postby NinjaPuppy » 06 Feb 2010, 02:48

It seems that the JREF forums have decided that there is too much chatter about Big Foot over there. Perhaps some of the Big Foot people might want to discuss his existence/non-existence here?

I've personally never seen one and I'm not too convinced with what little information there is available about him/her (it?) that one does exists. Yet I'm open to the idea that it is possible.

There are plenty of obscure creatures out there rarely seen by man, so who's to say there isn't some big, furry, Big Foot roaming around in the wilderness?

I'd love to get involved in some bigfoot discussion! I can honestly say I've never seen one either, but open to the possibility! (Regardless of how remote that possibility might actually be...)

We need a Big Foot trap! However, there are none in my neck of the woods so it's up to you ProfWag. Get building.

Way ahead of you Ninja. This is me and my cousin Billy Bob taken just last summer:

You better tell BillyBob that Big Foot ain't gonna fall for that thing. I'd bet that even deer would run in the opposite direction at the sight of that dadburn contraption.

OMG! I stand corrected. It seems there is proof that the trap works.

Now I see from that picture that Big Foot was active in July 2009. We have plenty of time to build a better trap.

People who care more than I say that there has to be at least 3,000 of those darn creatures across the country for them to be able to be spread out like they are in all parts of the country and to sustain themselves through reproduction. So, we should have plenty of time.

I've considered that as well. However, suppose for a minute that their lifespan might be like 150 years or something and they can walk really fast.

A Galopagos tortoise can live for 193 years. A turkey buzzard - 118 years. Heck, a carp can live 100 years. Not that any of them are mammals but people can go 100+ years.

As an Aussie I know SFA about Bigfoot.

However, our American cousins might be interested to hear that Australia has it's own version of the Bigfoot legend.

(We call them "Yowies" here BTW).

The area in which I live is rife with Yowie lore, yet despite trekking deeper into National Parks land and hunting al manner of legal game in the "open" districts for more than twenty years, I have never even come by so much as a track to indicate the exitence of such an animal, even though I have have heard many a plausible anecdote.

I do, however, live in an area of New South Wales, which due to it's highly inhospitable terrain, remains, to this day, largely unexplored.

It is almost certain that this region contains huge valleys, gorges, etc, so inaccessable even with the best of modern technology that no "White Fella" has ever searched them, and highly questionable that any "Black Fella" ever laid eyes on them either!

Therefore, I cannot say wether these animals exist or not.

Nothing short of a specimen, either living or recently dead would persuade me that this species exists and is sufficiently rare, as to justify the strongest legislation to protect it from extinction.

At risk of dragging this thread off topic, I can't for the life of me, understand what is "cryptic" about zoology or botany.

Nor can I grasp why these topics are deemed "paranormal."

Am I alone in this matter?

They're all over the place. Big Foot, yetti, yowie, you name it. I Googled up Big Foot and was actually amazed at how little there was. I would think that there would be a ton of blurry pics of black bears, rocks, etc. but not even that.

I come from the land of the Jersey Devil. He seems to have been reduced to a tourist thing. Not much ever said about him any more.

Union City might as well be a different continent from where the Jersey Devil was born. ;)
