    Absolutely nothing cheap about that ape-suit.

    For reference, here's a cheap ape suit:

    It may well be an ape suit, but if so, it's better than anything even Hollywood could muster at that time.

    The above two videos, which I suspect to be authentic, show some consistent morphology between the subjects. The second video is very brief, but you can still see a good shot of the subject's form as it walks off trail.
    He was a Bigfoot enthusiast who drew that image based on an eyewitness account, he didn't conjure it up out of thin air. Stands to reason that an extant species of Sasquatch would have females, so to have drawn one previously isn't really any striking indication of a hoax.

    I grew up in the area that was home to the Susquehannock Indians in Pennsylvania. There were rumors of "Bigfoot" in the area surrounding the Susquehanna river. I got to talk to a Susquehannock tribal descendent when I was attending a basketball camp at Susquehanna University as a teen and asked him about tribal history, what happened to the tribe, and lastly of their legends. He told me that they have maintained an oral and written history of a Bigfoot creature.

    Having hunted in the woods of Pennsylvania I can say that I've seen and heard odd things that line up with the goofy Bigfoot shows on TV the oddest being trees broken at a point higher than I am tall with the tree top pointing down to the ground. No fallen trees around them to explain the break. Doesn't mean there's a Bigfoot to blame but it's fun to imagine since there's no easy explanation visible.

    Yes, but the difference is Floresiensis has been dead for 12,000 years. It's understandable that after 12k years remains would be hard to find. Something that is supposedly still living would be much easier to find traces of.

    There have been biologists and other specialists like the ones posted here discussing the movement mechanics of the creature in the video.

    then there is the fact that Bigfoot. Costumes of the era were not anywhere near as good as one I the film was.

    they even had the guy that said. He. Made that one make another one and it was dog shit comparatively.

    Hollywood movie budget money at the time didn’t come close so you think some broke asses made that??

    Of course, I've seen the footage. Many, many people have and there are those who will tell you that it looks like somebody in a gorilla suit. What do you say to those people?


    Gimlin:


    If they've ever heard of Bill Munns, who was a special effects man in Hollywood for 30 some years, and he went into that film footage to prove that it was false. After he studied it for so long he said, "I was the best there was in special effects," and he said, "I couldn't have come up with anything close to a man in a suit that looked like that."

    That's weird because Bill told me nothing about that. And Bill would have said something.

    I'm sure the recorded footage is the last Bigfoot ever, who then proceeded to eat himself leaving no trace behind. The rest were lost to the atmosphere back before Newton discovered gravity. Tricky, treacherous times.

    Well, there are tons of idiots who managed to obtain a PhD so just remember that when people are presented as experts. Then there are others who may be experts but they are also biased toward one possibility than another. Experts tend to be just as tribal as everyone else, unfortunately.

    Animals that aren’t used to seeing people can have varying reactions but often times their fear is very limited.
    As to your point about the people of Bhutan, I find local people and indigenous people some of the best people to talk to about local wildlife but also some of the worst. When we were in Honduras the local people would be concerned for us while we handled coral snakes (potentially deadly) but they would think we were insane for handling some of the lizards. Not beaded lizards (venomous), just harmless basilisks and other small medium lizards. They were convinced they were deadly venomous

    Yes, I've hunted in bear country. Places where they might live out their whole lives and not seen a human. Had one climb up a tree I was in and sniff at me and run away. I don't think he had a clue what I was and being the alpha preditor in the area had no reason to fear me.

    Moose also tend not to fear humans.

    If that thing was actually walking through the forest it would be loud as hell. The woods in NorCal can be thick and that thing is not build to quietly slide between bushes. They would be natural prey for the mountain lion and wolves and would have competed for habitat with the grizzly bear.

    Bigfoot is a joke and has been from the beginning. It's not real and there is no such thing.

    I'm the OP of this thread . I've actually been looking for those videos but could not remember the names of them for the life of me (Freeman)

    I think the videos above are true hoaxes and are typical of what you've gotten outside of the PG video . What's interesting to me is that they're both relatively recent when compared to The PG video. You'll notice how the depicted creature is always obscured and never clearly seen . Not like PG . And to me these are what clearly look like men in gorilla suits. My other point being those are Truly cheap shitty monkey suits

    so compared to PG which was shot in 1967 by two simpletons there's a clear difference in what's being presented

    the PG video imo is a true anomaly

    There's an anomaly all right.

    You're not wrong. There was an earwitness account of Bigfoot launching what could only be boulders into the nearby waters.

    No bigfootage, but the story cannot be disproven. As for being prey to those can animals, Bigfoot is clandestinely protected by the Federal Government of the United States of America.

    Just carefully look at this gif I'm asking all of you.

    Both videos were shot about 50-60 feet from the subject

    just look at the mass of this thing compared to Trump and contemplate for a hot minute It appears to be well over 300 lbs

    it's f'n massive

    Yooge. He's also the only Bigfoot to ever be impeached TWICE.

    Tremendous.

    The issue with the Patterson film is they specifically went out looking for Bigfoot....and found him.

    I'd love for there to be an elusive man-ape out there and I do think it probably existed in the past but is long extinct.
