Before we begin, let's remind ourselves of two things.
1) You are anonymous. Don't let your ego get involved. If you have something to share, share it. If you don't want to be ridiculed, that's understandable, but just put your experience out and ignore the trolls if you can, your input is appreciated.
2) This isn't /x/, please don't point us to /x/, /x/ is full of children who haven't spent any time innawoods or even outside. Real outdoorsmen are who I personally want to speak with about this matter.
I'd like to share something happened to me and my family last year and hope you can share some stuff of your own.
I'm a Montanan. I've done plenty of hunting camping fishing etc. I live at the foothills of the rockies in an area with tons of peaks, lakes, rivers etc.
Me and my family went camping at a nearby lake which you have to hike 15-20 minutes to reach. It's certainly not the most remote lake, but there was nobody there when we arrived and set up tent.
This lake area has a beautiful view on the opposite side of the entrance which is comprised of limestone cliffs, caves, and chutes leading directly up into the back-end of the mountains. Anything from the most remote reaches of the wilderness areas beyond the mountains can easily pass down to the lake.
While the sun started to set, I was gathering more firewood. When I came back my little brother said he was hearing something like a "truck" or engine rumbling in the woods, but there are no vehicle accessible roads so I'm not sure what he heard.
My Dad was with us and he had his pistol out, he didn't say anything but I saw a look on his face like he was uncomfortable. He shot into the woods to scare away any bears etc. He acted like he was playing around but I could tell he was legitimately trying to clear the area by making noise, and he didn't want to spook my little brother by saying so.
As it darkened, we heard someone or something start coming down the hillside behind us, not from the mountains, but from a thickly forested hillside that reached out around the lake, connected to the mountains.
Something was coming down through the pine trees and deliberately snapping thick branches every 20 steps or so. I've encountered grizzlies, we know about bears, they tend to just bulldoze through the woods and snap the shit out of everything. This sounded more like someone deliberately breaking thick branches. They got closer and closer.
By this time me and my family were dead silent and just staring into the woods. Me and my Dad readied our weapons and stood up. We were expecting a Grizzly.
Whatever it was continued to step right up to the edge of our camp. We couldn't see anything but we could hear it moving around and snapping smaller branches.
At this point we were almost angrily annoyed, because we knew whatever this was was fucking with us and was going to ruin our camping expedition. We shot into the woods and it didn't move.
More branches snapped.
If this was an animal, or a human, it was fucking insane.
We packed our stuff and left.
Over the following months people were having giant boulders thrown at them on the trail near that lake, or boulders thrown into the lake from the hillside. One family packed up and left as well.
Was it a bear?
>This thread has nothing to do with the outdoors.
>things that happen in the outdoors exclusively
>nothing to do with the outdoors
Calm yourself and hide the thread, faggot.
>not just another animal
Why would you even come here?
Just talk to Les if you want to speak with outdoorsmen about bigfoot.
Forget about Bigfoot. The smart money is on Womble hunting.
Grizzlies can be attracted to some sounds, could have been a sow not willing to fuck around even if you were trying to intimidate her, because she had chilluns. For all she knew that warning shot you gave was an attempt on her/the cubs lives.
I'mnot gonnamake a jke about your butt hole either, you'd only spread it.
>Do you have any stories?
Now, this is the story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air
ITT: Cletus gets upset
>yous talkin bout dem UNCHRISTIAN THINGS NOW we aint HAVIN THAT HERE
>take your DEVIL MONKEY SHIT TO /x/ !
Later that day:
>MAH! MAH I told them to stop and they won't stop!
>Times for mes to rev up some serious shitpostin HYUCK
I don't have anything of my own to share but I like checking out the BFRO database sometimes. Lots of shit went down in my area. Supposedly.
Survivorman had a bigfoot encounter, I know that much.
>My story cont.
In West Philadelphia, born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool
And all shootin' some B-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said, "You're movin' with your aunty and uncle in Bel Air".
Are you not catching on yet, Cletus?
Your shit is getting rekt.
Nobody gives a fuck about your feelings getting hurt over the discussion of "imaginary magical creatures" (also known as animals).
Keep it up. Let's see how much of your shit I can have removed.
Thanks for the help mods.
Don't be like that, you're invited to the gunshow too.
Making gay jokes is mean. How do you think OP will take it?
And don't say in the ass!
>My story, final chapter
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and had a dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought, nah forget it, yo home to Bel Air
I pulled up to the house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby, "Yo homes, smell you later"
Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel Air
That's my bigfoot story guise. Believe it or not, it's true.
This entire thread is fucking shameful.
First of all the content does belong on /x/ and you already know that. Second of all this spamming is /b/ tier and isn't fitting for /out/.
Know how I know you're gay?
You get an erection when I'm fucking you.
>Do you have any stories?
Here's a story,
Of a lovely lady,
Who was bringing up three very lovely girls.
All of them had hair of gold,
Like their mother --
The youngest one in curls.
What are you implying?
I honestly thought /out/ had adults in it.
If you don't "believe" in bigfoot you can say so. You're not being baited. You can even hide the thread.
Outright shitposting and acting like a faggot though?
You obviously let the inmates run the asylum around here.
>Do you have any stories?
Here's a story,
Of a man named Brady,
Who was bringing up three boys of his own.
They were four men,
Living all together,
Yet they were all, alone.
Poor lil guy, getting picked on and held down while bad things were done to him.
Now he can't get the cock and fag demons out of his head, so he regurgitates them wherever he can on the internet.
He does it for pay, even, because his wrists are too thin and he is no good for real jobs. Now he professionally shitposts on the internet for the people who use his lil boy hole.
All because he was too weak to fight back...
Poor lil guy.
I'm sorry we weren't there to defend you.
Poor lil guy.
Could never get a girlfriend. Could never do more than a couple pushups. Could never fire a gun.
Now he shitposts for money on the internet, and his weapon of choice is to use faggotry as a psychological weapon, because he knows how much being a faggot has wrecked HIS psyche.
Poor lil guy. If only his Dad had given a fuck about him instead of abandoning his ugly, dim-witted mother.
Poor lil guy.
He's a professional. Now it's time to pick at him.
Let's dissect his little mind. Why is it that he's so obsessed with homosexuality? Why does he feel it is a proper psychological weapon against others?
Poor lil guy.
Played his hand a little too hard on the internet today and the anons figured his schtick out.
Mommy never felt proud for her little son because he couldn't stick up for himself. Came home mopey every day with a sore butthole because the bigger boys were stronger than him.
Poor lil guy.
Now his attacks are becoming more feeble by the minute, because it's no longer fun and exciting to throw rancid faggotry at others... he's starting to smell that own rancid faggotry on his frail, pink fingers as they slip around his keyboard, and it's reminding him of icky things...
Poor lil guy. Can't stop now, though! You have a JOB to do!
Poor lil guy. A small crack in his psyche as the truth behind his posts is uncovered.
He was somebodys lil bitch. Not just one person but many.
Now he secretly enjoys it. Being submissive, being dominated, being a queer lil toy for the use of others.
But that's okay, as long as he can get on the internet and spit the demons out of his semen-addled brain at others, he won't be the gay one anymore.
>suck my cock
>semen jizz j-jizz jizz
Poor lil guy. Just can't help himself. Took it up his poor lil bum so many times that he is now fully possessed with faggotry.
It's not as fun when others point it out though... this isn't how trolling is supposed to be!
Poor lil guy.
He could claim it was all just trolling, but everyone knows the truth.
For over an hour he rolled around burping homosexual jokes and posting fap images from his gay folder... poor lil guy. Now it's all too obvious to everyone that he is in fact the faggot in the thread.
How to turn attention away from this fact though?
There is no way.
Only solution now is to press on. More cock jokes! More fag 'jokes'!... they are j-jokes... they're just... just jokes...
>Mommy never felt proud for her little son because he couldn't stick up for himself. Came home mopey every day with a sore butthole because the bigger boys were stronger than him.
>Poor lil guy.
I am fucking loling
Poor lil guy. He can't even bring himself to read the replies anymore, because they cut too sharp, too deeply.
He closes his eyes and fights back tears as his scrawny, semen-stained hands autonomously clack out another gay joke from the recesses of his memory.
"Why did it have to be this way? Why couldn't you just stay and raise me to be a man, Daddy!?" his subconscious shrieks as he shakes his head and fights back the memories.
Uh ohhhh... now the professional shitposter has REALLY showed his hand.
We knew it all along though, didn't we /out/?
Poor lil guy...
Poor lil guy.
Surely he is winning this war, even if only he is around to tell himself so.
If only Daddy had been around to tell him he was doing good... if only Mommy hadn't let the boys do those things to him...
poor lil guy
>If a girl blows ten guys in a week she's a slut. When you do it you're gay, definitely gay.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have reached critical mass.
The troll is now out of breath and dying. His quips are now falling flat.
We shouldn't have poked at him like that!
poor lil guy...
Poor lil guy. He's too flustered to even conjure anymore fag jokes.
He whimpers as he starts to quiver at the familiar sensation of being dominated.
Even if only dominated on the internet, through words, by a stronger mind, it is still too much, too reminiscent of those days... those summer days of pain and agony....
Poor lil guy
>Better to be caught watching gay porn and be thought of as gay than to post about Bigfoot and remove all doubt.
He finally gave up. He admits he's a faggot.
Stick a fork in this queerbait, he's done.
>making fun of your own kind
Poor lil guy. It must be rough being forced to do this.
Go wipe your ravaged anus and learn to troll properly. Or hang yourself, because on this day, you were outed, outed by the very person you spewed countless faggot-jokes at. Outed.
The shame must be incredible.
>Better to be caught watching gay porn and be thought of as gay than to post about Bigfoot and remove all doubt.
Eeeuuuuhh... that was painful bro. It's actually not better to ever be caught watching gay porn btw. Prob better to die. You should prob kill yourself.
>he's just going to give up
>he actually is gay and was using gay jokes to hide his shame
>he's just going to give up without explanation
>he's not going to refute anything
>he really is a poor lil guy with frustrated homosexual urges
>his comebacks became as weak and impotent as his tiny peepee which has never touched and will never touch a vagina
It's just not the same anymore, man.
Shouldn't have outed yourself like that.
The best thing for you now would be to have the last word. I may have dominated you but I'm not like those older boys who "taught" you things and turned you into the faggotry-obsessed weakling you are today. I will let you get up.
i what to post this Vid to show why all the big foot storys are bullshit.
imagine seeing this in the woods in bad conditions... your minds gonna go wild.
but as i see this thread derailed and is already filled to the top with shit.
no scrolled past most of the stuff since i looked like copy + answers all the way. then i had to wait 1 min to post second comment. but yeah what ever
Q: what does a gay gentelmen say on a date ?
A:"may i push in your stool"
Had to make a beer run.
You know how I know you're gay?

All aboard! CHOOO CHOOOO
If I had experienced a Bigfoot encounter, there's no way I would tell anybody. If I did, I would say it was probably just a bear.
Les Stroud does not believe in Sasquatch. That two part show was just for entertainment. However, as he said, there is a possibility, that we haven't discovered every animal on this planet. It's very much like with deep sea creatures. For city-people it's impossible to understand, how huge areas of the globe are essentially uninhabited. Think about siberia, there could be anything, like Neanderthals for example. If they are smart enought, they could easily avoid people for centuries. In rare cases they can't, well, there are all those stories. Think about it, if you were a russian living in siberia and you saw the bigfoot, how would your story ever be heard by western media/investigators. Most likely you would respect the creature and let it live.
You have thin hair. Your teeth is shit. You have a small deformed penis. Your wrists are thin. You are the weakest of men and can only get by with rat-like sneaky behavior for pay. You couldn't get a woman if you wanted so many of you are just outright faggots now.
You are demonic spawn, so whatever demons are inside of you (like faggotry, from years of taking it up your tookus) you can only regurgitate on the rest of the world. You have been trained to behave this way as well, just like dumping gore and porn images in random threads that discuss things you've been told to derail. You think you're fighting some kind of psychological warfare until you get your ass handed to you.
Then it's time to take a break, because your blood pressure rises and you can't handle it.
Frail, sickly, worthless creatures.
I am truly blessed, that I was not born in your circumstances, to a loveless whore of a mother and a father who himself took it up the ass and only brought you into the world out of a sense of duty.

Arlovski knocked him the fuck out in under three minutes last night. Silva's stock is diminishing with every fight.
This was her son. He was abnormally tall, strong, and had a short temper.
A Washington tribe of Natives referred to hybrids like this as "Skanicum".
Speaking of which, there must be a Silva farm somewhere breeding MMA giants.
Maybe all these sightings are just these fuckers out for a morning run.
And they're feedingthem in America.

Losing what, Goy?
And what happened to giving me the last word?
uh, what's going on ITT?
In any case, I have a tame little story about sasquatch/bigfoot. This summer I hiked in the Tofino area (in Canada) and met a wilderness photographer who was a very experienced hiker, and very familiar with the area. He told me he had recently planned a week-long stay in a secluded forest. He arranged to be heli'd in and out. Midway into the week, he kept being bothered at night by something throwing rocks at his tent. He also heard a strange "talking," kind of like an animal trying to imitate human speech but mostly coming up with guttural sounds. He got in touch with someone over his satellite radio and requested to be heli'd out much sooner. I'm pretty skeptical but I thought it was interesting.
The speech is real.
You can also youtube "ron moorehead vocalizations"
A group went camping in the 70s in the Sierras and were basically harrassed their entire stay, every night. They recorded the shit out of them.
Scott Nelson (shown in vid) is a former CIA speech analyst. He says it's 100% legit.
Thanks for sharing.

Can we be friends now? Who knows where it might lead...
I still love Les. Although I'm not hopping on the Bigfoot bandwagon. But this guy has spent a lot of time in the woods. If he thinks there's something out there, I'm not going to break his balls.
Believe my story or dont, but I assure you its very real and I was not alone. I'm a regular on /out/ and have no intention of trolling or bullshitting on this board.
Anyways I was camping on the Olympic Peninsula with my ex and we stayed in a super isolated campsite. We had a fire one night and I'm a pretty big Bigfoot enthusiast and I wanted to at least trying some calls while being in the hotspot of Bigfoot sightings (Im from the midwest).
I decided to do some log knocks with firewood. I did one and waited about 15 minutes, nothing. I did a second one and within a few seconds I got a knock back. Unmistakable, a resonating knock of two pieces of wood.
I got chills down my spine and my ex was creeped out, we were about 50 ft. from where we were sleeping. Anyways I didnt want to freak her out so in about 5 minutes I went to "take a piss" but I went and shined into the tree lines and I shit you not 2 red eyes staring right back at me about 100 ft. away, probably 7 feet off the ground. It was incredibly surreal and I'm open to it being disproved, but I cant in my own mind. you can say it was some wildlife, etc. but I saw it right there after hearing log knocks.. Very surreal memory and to be honest im bothered because I n ever expected it, but it happened, and I had a witness so I wasnt hallucinating or anything.
Thanks for reading.
I guess to add credibility, I am the guy who posted about building the cabin a few months ago. I try to keep my shitposting to other boards because the outdoors are something Im serious about and everyone here is pretty cool.
Just want to add a little credibility to prove im not some kid who wandered in from /b/
What I find most freaky are the recordings of strange noises in the forest. Here's one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2TnbQBTDXY
...which sounds eerily similar to this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTsdbKUwenI
I really want to bring some field recording equipment, the next time I go camping.
I guess you could say I'm ambivalent. I'm a skeptic about the existence of bigfoot. That said, there are still many unexplained phenomena you find the forest. Just because something is unexplained, doesn't mean it has to be bigfoot. Once, I saw some UFOs hovering over a mountain. They didn't appear to behave like any human aircraft, and to this day, I still can't explain it. But, I don't believe I saw anything alien. My rational brain understands the difficulty of interstellar travel, and thus I don't believe in the existence of alien visitors. Just because I don't have an explanation, doesn't mean it has to be paranormal.
And, I think some skeptics are wrong to dismiss the possibility of bigfoot on the grounds that they'd be easily seen. People have a wrong notion that North America is paved over and people are everywhere; there are immense swaths of wildnerness, larger than some countries. And, the total area of forested land has actually increased over the past century.
This pic is a trailcam capture of...well, it's probably a bear. But this shows the difficulty in interpreting images. Everyone thinks an image would be proof. It's not. Images are way too open to interpretation and illusion. No image of bigfoot would ever prove its existence. Scientific rigor demands physical evidence.
I'd say the chances of bigfoot existing are low. But not zero.
Same poster here. I noticed something about the two videos I posted. Both of them were recorded in the same unbroken swath of wilderness in California, hundreds of miles away from each other.
The first video was recorded in Hockett Meadows, in Sequoia National Park, California, in October of 2007.
The second one was recorded near Clipper Mills, California, in July of 2012.
I looked up both locations on Google Maps, and found those two locations are connected by a chain of contiguous national forests and national parks. I took a screenshot, and whipped this up in Paint. I looked up the acreages of each park or forest in Wikipedia. Forgive the misspellings and poor construction, it's late and I've got a sinus infection and fever. I just thought this was too interesting not to point out.
>living in siberia and you saw the bigfoot
>Most likely you would respect the creature and let it live.
Confirmed for not knowing Siberians. Poaching is fucking rampant.
If fagfoot is out there, he is way fuck up north not bothering anybody or everyone is too blind/wasted to see him.
Sounds like me taking a shit.
Second video is eerie as hell.
Op if you want real cold ball sweats, read Missing 411 or see some of the podcasts and cross reference info.
Shits fucking creepy.

>I want a thread to discuss mature tinfoil with mature tinfoilers such as myself

>Look guise, I put my undies on my head and fingerpainted my own shit onto a map.
Yeah, you convinced me, the only possible explanation for some shitty audio recordings made innawoods is an undiscovered colony of giant bear people.
Bigfoot really does exist, he rides Nessie to work every morning.
I totally forgot there was a series of Harry and the Hendersons made after the movie. It was on right before Dinosaurs when I was a kid, can't find it online anywhere though.
yeah because bigfoots come out of their mothers as 8 foot giants. Theyre completely excused from the biological process of being born as an infant and growing into an adult.
>being this dense
IKR?!?! How fucking ridiculous!!!!!
There's obviously a whole breeding colony of the fucking things. Undiscovered. In North fucking America. We've never managed to photograph one because the fucking pixie dust makes them invisible.
What's the plural for them then Professor? Bigfoots? Bigfeet? Clownshoes?
>Hey Zeke I just saw me a whole clownshoes of Bigfeets. *Ahyuck*
Well, you know what they say about guys with BIG FEET...
That's because bigfoot is always hard to find.
For serious, though, I am Bigfoot. Or, at least, I left enough "evidence" in the woods north of Mio, MI to make Oscoda County the Bigfoot capital of Michigan. You'd be surprised at how much if your "evidence" is from pranksters.
I really made /x/ hate me a few years ago for taking about how Bigfoot is a hoax.
>Undiscovered. In North fucking America.
There are many good reasons to disbelieve the existence of Sasquatch. This is not one of them. You forget that in the western and northwestern areas of the continent are mostly empty space. Pic is a population density map of North America.
In the United States alone, the federal government owns 443,000 square kilometers of wilderness. That's larger than Germany. That's only federally-designated land; the area of total wilderness is roughly double that. And, that doesn't include Canada, which would easily double, triple, or quadruple that number.
I'd argue that it's reasonable that a small population of shy animals can remain undetected in undeveloped area the size of Germany. The better arguments against the existence of Sasquatch are lack of fossil record, lack of physical specimens, ease of misidentifying bears, and the allure of hoaxes. People fucking love making hoaxes.
I'm not criticizing. Also, I haven't done any of that stuff in years. It's like the guys who invented crop circles. When they were done having their fun, they told everybody how they did it.
For me, though, I'm 6'5", I have huge, flat feet, I'm very hairy, and I spend a lot of time in the woods. Some of my hoaxing, especially at first, was just me doing my thing out in the woods, and being misidentified. But really, is it b so wrong to say that I am Bigfoot? I am a hairy hominid 6-9 feet tall...
>People fucking love making hoaxes.
Yup, just look at Nessie. Absolute shite but the myth makes a fortune from tourists and some of us just enjoy fucking with people for teh lulz.
Wouldn't surprise me if most of this shit is down to the goofy old bastard running that Bigfoot museum.
>t it's reasonable that a small population of shy animals can remain undetected in undeveloped area the size of Germany.
Maybe, but early hominids lived in Eurasia and Africa, not North America, I'd put more stock in Yeti legends than sasquatch.
It's funny how the sightings map matches the human population map, instead of being the inverse.
There was a lot of drug use among the American soldiers, along with the fact that war drives people crazy. It could even have been the Vietcong fucking with them somehow, messing with their heads.
My uncle in New Hampshire swears he saw one with his friends when he was younger. This guy is a legit outdoorsman who builds stonewalls. He will legitimately get mad at you if you don't believe him so he doesn't tell people often.
>It's funny how the sightings map matches the human population map
Not in Canada. Not at all.
That's true and really what's so funny about sightings map matching the human population map. It's like not a very good argument against Sasquatch. Of course people in densely populated areas are afraid of the nature and cause false alarms. If you're never experienced real darkness (in a city there is none) or heard noises foxes make, no wonder if your first trip /out/ turns into Bigfoot-episode.
I remember being about 13, camping alone for the first time in my little scout pup tent about 6km into the bush. After a day of unsuccessfully building traps for rabbits I sat down around my fire with a can of bully beef and a potato or two. Then the foxes started. Three or four of them constantly running around my campsite, screaming their ungodly scream until first light. Being fairly inexperienced with the outdoors, I had no idea what was going on and honestly thought I was going to die that night. As soon as there was enough sunlight to see, I ran the 6km through the bush back to my house. First thing my dad said when he saw me was, 'Gee, didja hear the foxes las'night?'. I felt pretty bloody stupid that a bunch of mangy, weird looking dogs kept me scared to death all night, but it was a great learning experience.
>science is everything
>everything is science
Maybe because people enjoy discussing and maybe even believing in phenomena like this? There is no real physical evidence for the existence of a god either, doesn't stop people believing and discussing it.
>inb4 fedora tier comments
The 'fedora tier' comment was referring to my comparison to religious beliefs. As soon as you mention religion it seems that there will be hordes of atheists ready to tell you how stupid you are for not worshiping your own euphoric intellect.
>>science is everything
>>everything is science
Except that's true.
While it's scientifically possible for something like Bigfoot to exist, it's NOT scientifically possible
that if Bigfoot did exist, that there would be _absolutely zero evidence_ of its existence.
Somebody somewhere at some point, would have shot one and brought it in for scientific examination.
We're not talking about some kinda tiny little critter like a tree frog or hummingbird that can be overlooked
by scientists for generations, this is supposedly an 8+ foot tall hominid and would have been found by now
if it was real.
Their argument is basically the same as that ricockulous dowsing thread.
>B-but you can't prove they're not real
>My cousin's retarded dog saw one once
>Stop raping me
Let the mongoloids have their fun
I've never been /out/ in California, so no, but probably someone else who likes to play pranks. Or maybe not even pranks. Consider the following: after listening to New Bibi Hendl by Japanese yodeler Takeo Ishii about 100 times on /f/ (seriously, it was all over that board for months) I figured it would be fun to learn to yodel. Were do I practice? Out in the woods, of course! It keeps the bears away, and there's nobody nearby to be bothered or to judge me. But, if somebody did hear happen to hear me without seeing me, what might they think of it? Like I said, most of my Bigfoot hoaxing has been unintentional, but it's fun to run with sometimes.
I even used to hike barefoot sometimes, sort of to see how Cody Ludin does it. I'm sure my footprints spooked somebody who isn't used to size 16 feet.
The image of rednecks in realtree stalking through the bush to investigate the Bigfoot calls and stumbling across pic related in a clearing is just too funny.
The guy who started the original bigfoot myth in the late 60s admitted that it was a hoax and one of the other well known pictures of bigfoot (not sure how to refer to it and I can't find it) is from a shooting location for a failed movie about...bigfoot.
However, there are very similar Native American myths with much longer history. It's always possible I suppose with the amount of wilderness in North America, but how have we never found any trace of a huge ass ape?
You guys sound legitimately scared of admitting that another species of people could exist without you personally bumping into them.
If you don't know why bodies haven't been shoved under the noses of people in this age, you're an idiot. It is more likely however that you do know. Cowards.
I for one don't think it's entirely impossible, but like I keep implying by talking about my experiences as a hoaxer, I really don't think it's the best explaination for the evidence. And trust me, I used to be really into this stuff. That's how I first found out that someone had mistaken me for Bigfoot, and thus inspired my pranking.
Patterson went to his grave insisting that it was real footage, and it's said that Gimlin will 'kick you in the teeth' (a reference to the bigfoot thread on /x/) if you try to tell him it's fake. Also important to note that neither of them 'started' the myth. I don't really believe in bigfoot, but incorrect information never does any good for any side of the argument.
But if he was in the suit, what about the other two or three people that claimed to be in the suit? Also, I'm not trusting a lie detector test undertaken by a TV show called Lie Detecter and hosted by someone named 'Rolonda'.
Also important to mention that Kal Korff was one of the main people publicising the 'fact' that Heironimus was in the suit, and if Korff endorses it you can be pretty sure that it's bullshit.

I can accept Bigfoot type hominids surviving just long enough that a handful of Stone Age humans encountered them
and created myths around them, as the creation of fossils requires very specific conditions and it's perfectly reasonable
that any Bigfoot bones simply rotten away since then or just haven't been found.
After all, we do know that mammoths survived until quite recently (historically speaking);
"Woolly mammoths survived there [Wrangel Island] until 2500–2000 BC, the most recent survival of all known
mammoth populations. Isolated from the mainland for 6000 years, about 500 to 1000 mammoths lived on the
island at a time."

This is not true. You appear to be unaware that new species of large animals, previously unknown to science, are still currently being discovered with some regularity. That includes primates and ungulates. Let us restrict ourselves to the case of terrestrial mammals:
>The Myanmar snub-nosed monkey, a primate previously unknown to science, was discovered in 2010. A population of these animals was discovered to be living in China, in 2011.
>The Saola is a rare species of wild bovine unknown to science until 1992, when some remains were discovered. It evaded all attempts to photograph it, until the first photo ever taken of the animal was produced in 2013 by a remote trail cam.
>The Giant peccary is native to South America and was only discovered in 2000. It was previously known to the natives.
>Pygmy three-toed sloths were only discovered in 2001, in Panama.
>Yellow-striped chevrotains (like a small deer) were discovered only in 2005.
>The Kipunji is a new species of monkey discovered in 2003.
>Pic related is a Blond capuchin monkey. They were rumored to exist since the 1600s, but were only formally discovered in 2006.
>Olinguitos are related to raccoons, and the species was discovered in 2013.
The fact that some species of monkeys weren't even known to science until just last year is proof that rare animals can remain unknown to science for a very, very long time. How do you know what new species of land animal will be discovered in the future? You can't. The discovery of new species is an ongoing thing, and at no point can anyone say "well, that's it, all the evidence for everything has already been found."
Wait. I'm lost. is this /b/? If so, WHERE IS FUCKING SPIDERMAN to derail this sad thread? At a Convention or something?
>Tiny ass monkeys and some other critters no bigger than a terrier.
They might discover a new variety of chipmunk tomorrow, it's not going to convince me that hairy giants are living undiscovered in the land of burgers and guns
