No Dave, I'm not TJBF. I'm very well aware of Jim though and I actually know of his area. I did research, figured out his whereabouts and his location. I've been out to check it once. I was hoping to get out there again before it got too late in the year. It's a bit of a drive for me.

Most think he's nuts but I'm not apt to closing the door on him so quickly. I know from experience that the areas he's frequenting may very well be producing activity.
I wouldn't go about it like he does with the utube channel but that's his choice.

It's far from complete nonsense. I can go on and on about documented sightings from reliable sources. Sightings documented for several hundred years.
Footprints with dermal ridges, tree branch twists, vocalizations etc.
The evidence piles up year after year but yes, no body. That doesn't mean a thing.
They've proven Gigantopithecus existed through only a few fragments of mandible and teeth. That was a 10ft. ape that roamed Asia.
Sharks, Crocs are 200 and 400 million years old. It's entirely feasible.
Here's a link to a BFRO webpage that will answer your skeleton statement.
http://www.bfro.net/gdb/show_FAQ.asp?id=409

With this being a canoe route website, I wouldn't be surprised if there's others on here that may have experienced activity and they didn't even know it.

Then there's the semi-intelligible grunts coming from the mayor's office in TO. What about that, eh? :doh:

There is no history of sasquatch ever being hunted. Why then does every last one of them scrupulously avoid contact?

Great thread... sorry for being skeptical.

Being skeptical is only natural when dealing with this enigma.

I can only say doesn't most wildlife avoid humans?
In all the years I've spent photographing wildlife, I've never seen a wolf.
They avoid us like the plague.

Not totally true...there are areas where wolf sightings are quite common. They can become "habituated" to human presence ( as most wild animals will....dump bears, etc). In Sasquatch, you are discussing a case where this appears not to happen....

While you may not have personally seen a wolf, I'm guessing that many on this forum have, some frequently.

Another angle: if sasquatch is more or less a form of wild ape, how come it is so much more successful than the African apes, which are easily hunted.

Very true.
Also two completely different species. One definitely does not act like the other.

I would think many have seen a wolf especially this being a canoe route site!
I wasn't implying that people never see them, only that they're very elusive.

The voice I heard had a human tone to it yet it was all animal. Huge voice. Fills the forest around you.
This is not your regular african ape. It's something vey different.

I really don't know definitive answers. Most are educated guesses from personal experiences. I've spent the last 3 years pursuing the ultimate photo challenge understanding exactly what I experienced that first time.
It's a pretentious claim but it is what it is.
The tens of thousands of others as well as the ones who didn't report it, understand. It's one of those you had to be there :D

If there were sasquatch in the Dundas Valley my hound dog would've sniffed him out by now. :lol:

It's completely understandable that it might seem like a big joke but I can assure you guys, you couldn't be further from the truth.

The way the media portrays the subject along with the lack of knowledge and understanding that the vast majority have, it's no wonder it's a joke.

Those who learn the truth feel a personal satisfaction that can't be touched by
ridicule and laughter.

If anyone has experienced strange activity while camping or cottaging, be it vocalizations, tree shaking, limb breaks, pets acting abnormal about something in the woods, rotting garbage/carrion/wet dog smells that they can't explain, possible footprints or even a possible sighting, etc..
I'd love to hear about it. Any info would be strictly confidential.
