Some interesting stories and a fun thing to believe in. But really I think at this point in history itís totally debunked. Thereís literally thousands of trail cams in the woods and has been for a long time now. Simple law of averages would say pics of one would at least keep up in some proportion to sightings.

 There are a few trail camera photos of what are likely Sasquatch ( based on size and limb ratios ), I personally know of a photo that has not been published as the owner does not want to receive negative attention. 

 I am aware of at least 3 other photos/videos that are not public and I have heard of a few that are rumored to be included on a few upcoming documentaries in the works.




 It also comes down to the fact that a photo does not hold much weight anymore as things can be fabricated, this is why a few people do not share as they know that folks will just assume that they are making it all up.   If I had ownership of a photo of sasquatch and it was posted in this forum I would likely receive dozens of posts stating that the photo is fake because bigfoot is not real.

 High resolution thermal camera footage is the only way that we can give an illustration of a true living creature that could pass any degree of scientific scrutiny.

Iím not sure I understand what the trail cam pic of the owl proves other than my point. I viable breeding population of animals would be showing up with as much surveillance as there exists I the last 2 decades in its habitat. Still, fun campfire stories

Lots of species are still being discovered.  There are humans we still have almost no photographs of.  I am not one to think its not possible because anything is possible.  Plausible is an entirely different thing.

 It is just an example of something on camera that could potentially be a sasquatch or an owl or an other known critter. It was not intended to represent a ,, real bigfoot ,, photo.  In this case there is just not enough information to say what exactly is on camera, it is entirely up to the viewers interpretation.   

 Some folks do have great photos but do not post or share with the public because people will interpret what they view is the truth and more often than not the determination is that it is a hoax on the witness or the witness is hoaxing or it is some other animal. 

Consider yourself in this position:  You have a great photo of a sasquatch on camera, are you ready to post a photo and take ownership of the repercussions ?

 My statement is that they do get detected in these formats ( trail camera/plotwatcher ) but the few truly good photos do not reach the public eye for examination for a number of reasons.

 So it would be fair to say that you would remove yourself from that situation of owning the reputation behind the photo ? 

 If this is the case a third party looking at the photo is already going to discount the information as "shady" and therefore gaining no traction in the scientific sense.

 If you are suggesting that you would put your name and character behind the photo with the intention of collecting an attributed value then it is also discounted by the public as a con or hoax.  Why ? - because there is already a stigma and now someone was making money on it.   

 Either way people don't give credit as they lean on the side of a perceived sure bet and or an assumption based out of ignorance.   This unfortunately is where we as humans get in our own way of understanding the reality of a situation or event.  :bash:

Iíd recognize the value of what I had and sell it since I care way more about cash then fame. Still though, I digress. This world is way smaller then the days  of these mountains being big mysteries. There not out there bud. Pick up a rifle while your looking though, usually great elk country

Nathan,

IMO your argument is nonsense. If people had good pics they'd post them. 

Besides,many of those trail cams out there have video mode. And still no clear pics or video.

To argue that people don't share is nonsense. I guarantee if I ever got good Biggie video I would share it. 

I get deer, elk, bear, cougar, coyote, bobcat, etc. I get good, irrefutable video.   

Lots of unexplained things happen.   That don't make it bigfoot.

We can agree on this much.     ;)

I wont share pics with the general public.  If I had pics of a presumed "foot" chances are I would not share.  If I ever kill something hunting, probably wont share that either. I get all sorts of odd junk on my trail cam.

 If such pictures are obtained they should be shared at the very least with a serious research group ( not to be shared with the public ) that is actively working on documentation of the species.
 
  There is good reason to believe the overall population of these creatures is not doing so well.

  Humans have a habit of going into untouched areas seeking new resources that through harvest completely change the landscape and as a result create negative effects on the species inhabiting the region.

  There may come a time that if we do not acknowledge their position in wild territories we may drive them to the point of extinction.
