Breaking in my new boots, doing a crag survey of invasive plants.

Be well.

Perhaps my habit of releasing the carbonation from the previous evenings beverages while hiking is preventing me from finally seeing Bigfoot!?!
Before the topic dies, my son's bio teacher (northern Utah) sets motion cameras in the Uintas throughout much of the year. He gets shots of cougar fairly regularly (but no Bigfoot yet). Obviously we don't have a dense population of cougar on the ridge but would still expect one to get caught occaisionally if there were any. A negative result is not solid proof but does help to build a case.

Nah, the abundance of cougars severely limits the bigfoot population.

These cats just don't know they're supposed to be extinct. This morning's paper reports continuing multiple sightings of mountain lions in the Greenwich Ct. area, even after the death of last week's lone critter. Or was it....?

Circus train wreck effect. Cluster sightings go exponential anytime there's a confirmation outside the breeding populations.

Oh, I know about those cluster sightings. I live in Pine Bush, Orange Cty. The east coast's version of Area 51. I'm the only one on my block to have not been abducted by ET or stared down by Gort.

Which begs the question, how do you prove you were not abducted? Exactly.
I vote that we send Ranger Rob out to find the critter. You're trained in that stuff, right?

One traveling scat-sniffing trained dog could put the entire question of cougar (or alien) presence to bed.

How does one train a dog to detect bigfoot scat?
