We have a very special thread here about Sasquatch......   where we deal harshly with skeptics.     :yike:

Original comment: Well I hike about 10 miles a day on peak seasons and have the missing toenails to prove it! Through all that bushwhacking, I have yet to personally experience an encounter with Sasquatch. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t exist or that others haven't had run-ins with him, does it?  :)

---Again, did I make any Sasquatch assumptions or accusations? I must be new to this thing called reading...

Oh, I get it - The BFRO reference... You guys need to leave poor Sasquatch alone! What did he ever do to you?

LOL dude. 

There's a 500-something page Bigfoot thread that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that b igfoot may or may not exist.

I can't link it from my phone, but I did bump it up. 

551 pages chock full of Bigfoot lore. 

Look for it under "virtual campfire".   Thread title, conveniently, is "Bigfoot".   

You'll learn stuff you can't unlearn.

I use hiking trails to get in, some of them very popular trails.  I like to go up super early in the morning to avoid people and be glassing shortly after the sun comes up.  You'll run into most of the people on the way down.  Reactions will very greatly, although I would say most interactions have been positive - even the ones where I could tell they didn't necessarily approve.

I agree.   

When I run into hikers I smile and wave. 

I've never been screamed at or whatever.

I've only been hunting for two seasons now, but even I've run into a handful of non-hunter hikers, mostly in GPW and ALW.  All were very polite, and all but one seemed to think what I was doing was cool and either told me where they'd seen animals or lamented not having tips for me. 

Even the one who obviously didn't approve was cordial enough to wish me good luck.   :tup:
