With all of the years I have spent in the outdoors I have only seen 5 lions and 3 bobcats other than trapping, I believe that there could be something out there that we have never seen that survives in little pockets of wilderness,,but I also believe that it will only be a matter of time with today`s technology that proves it one way or the other,I have known several people that claim to have seen one,and they have never to my knowledge ever lied to me, they believe in what they saw and their experiences have marked their memories just like the first bull elk you have taken or your best buck, I have a hard time disputing their experiences
Im with you Steve, Like you said about the lions I know people who have never ever seen one in the woods.
So yes there could be a bigfoot hideing out there, I guess there just being shy.
Yeah, but somebody has seen them in the woods. And shot them. And trapped them. And found fur and tracks. And got trail cam pics. And found poop. And bones. And fossils. So mountain lions are real.
I want to believe...i think it would be awesome if there was a North American ape in the mountains! But I just can't believe in things that have no evidence. Just to clarify and respond to hornart's comment, I don't think people that tell me they have seen bigfoot are deceptive people and lying to me. I think they are probably wrong, and didn't see what they think they saw. But they aren't lying. Same goes for people that claim to see UFOs, religious experiences, or other supernatural claims. I don't think they are lying at all, I just havent had the same encounter and therefore need material evidence.
