    In the annals of history, since man began recording history in the late 1400's (1492?), no one, not one single, solitary, human being has found and or recorded a recently deceased, decomposing remains, skeletal remains or living bigfoot, sasquatch, yeti or any other humanoid type creature...other than the great apes of Africa and Borneo.
    There have been too many hunters/outdoors people, wanderers, explorers and adventurers out in the most remote areas in the last 600 years for at least ONE of them to discover and report a living, injured, crippled, dead, decomposing or skeletonized bigfoot, yeti, sasquatch or swamp thingie.

    I'm more inclined to believe in the extraterrestrial beings than bigfoot.

    Native Americans have mentioned something about them in their lore for centuries.
    The earliest modern discusion was in the '50's at a lumber campin Washington. Remember, there were stories of 55gal drums full of fuel beng thrown around camp. ?

    I was talking to a neighbor at camp and I mentioned the scream I heard. When I described it he said he heard the same thing some years ago but never said anything about it. It came from a area close to the one I heard, first one scream and then another from some distance away. Eerie stuff.

    I think everybody wants in on the tourist bucks. No beaches, no ski mountains? No worries, just invent a creature.

    That said, I sorta believe that the Loch Ness creatures might actually be there. Something about deep, deep water just gives me the creeps anyway.

    Again, no photos, no evidence, no bodies, no remains. Just oral reports.
    The Legend of Boggy Creek? That movie scared me when I was a kid. Got a real catchy song in it, though: "Hey, Travis Crabtree! Do you see what I see?"

    Man, for some reason, no matter what thread we're on, I'm always having different songs popping into my head ...... ???

    I carry all the rounds I can pack just in case I run into a tribe of hostile Bigfoot! Bigfoots? Bigfeet?
    Seriously, I put four under the bolt, close the bolt on an empty chamber, and sometimes add the fifth one from the ammo carrier on the stock. If the ammo carrier is full, I have 13 rounds. Due to age and wear and tear, some of the carriers have really loose elastic, so I don't put shells in those. Generally, +/- 13. Sometimes I have a partial box in my do-wah bag, or some loose rounds, but I seldom carry the bag into the blind.
    I can't recall ever emptying a magazine, but sometimes I will top off out of the elastic shell carrier.

    Hundreds of thousands of game cameras all across the U.S..
    Too many to NOT catch "bigfoot", somewhere....if there ever was any such thing!
    BTW! No body or remains.

    Bigfoot doesn't exist.

    The article dances around a hypothesis it did not prove. Thousands of real people witnesses disprove the article.
    Just because there is not suitable evidence for the author does not mean it does not exist.
    There are convicted people sitting in jail that did not have any hard evidence at their trial.

    Might be anti-hunters who've been watching their "Finding Bigfoot" episodes. Impersonating a Sasquatch is probably more fun than slashing tires or running through the woods with airhorns.

    Perfect weather for deer gun season. Total is 4pt, 6pt and doe. One friend had a brand new side by side atv and first day was fine, second day it quit in the pasture and that was it for the duration. Towed it back and tried everything and no go. New electronics are great until they fail.

    Deer season, I carry five slugs in the gun and five more in a little neoprene zipper pouch in my fanny pack; and in the car bag on the backseat, another five in a drawstring Crown Royal bag. Every year, I think about the unlikelihood of even needing all of the first five -- but then I figure, they're not doing any harm coming along for the ride, and doing nothing at all sitting on the shelf at home.

    Plus my brother is a terrible shot and has been known to empty his gun with no deer to show for it. I give him crap about it, tell him to practice more, etc. -- but at the same time, if it happens when there's still a lot of light left, I wouldn't want him to have to quit for the day.

    I carry 15 rounds.
    Oklahoma no longer has mag/cap restrictions. I carry 5 round mags for my AR. Longer mags are just too long and cumbersome in a blind situation. So I carry 1 five round mag in the rifle and 2 extra 5 round mags. One in my day pack and one in my coat pocket.
    I've never had to replace a mag... yet! 🤞
