How Can Bigfoot Hide
First lets look at the following statement -
"According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, “…one half of the human population lives on less than 10 percent of the Earth's land, and three quarters on only 20 percent.”

This statement got me and some other followers on our facebook page wondering and asking questions.
Here is a deeper look into the above statement.

Total Forest acres in the US is about 747 million acres
of which about 363 Million acres is owned and in some ways protected by some form of Federal, State or local governments which includes Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service as well as numerous state, county, and municipal government organizations. 

The total Land acres in the United States is almost 2.3 billion acres. Keep in mind that only half of the human population lives on LESS that 10 percent of the total Earths Land and three quarters on only 20 percent according to the statement by American Association for the Advancement of Science.
I know that close to where I live there is a national park and there is some areas that are basically off limits. There is a stream that is full of trout and it is back in the middle of nowhere, you are not allowed to fish there at all. Even if you could it's a pretty good walk to the area. Also no Hunting is allowed and on this part there is not any kind of attractions for visitors. yeah you can go in there but it's out of the way,roped off and you're not allowed to do anything like hunt,fish,dig herbs and I would guess they don't even want you hiking there...and almost no one does...I personally have been in the area a few times in my life... we were coon hunting and wondered into the area one night and I have been there a couple times during the day time. It's a pretty place.
So what does this all mean?
It means there is a lot of area and acres that man does not see or live on...meaning there could be many undiscovered animals and plants out there. With this kind of space it would seem rather easy for something with fairly good brain power to stay hidden from what few people that are looking for it.

Compare the handful of researchers who actually spend time out in the forest looking for bigfoot to the total acres of forest in the US and it is easy to make the jump that something could easily be hiding and we'd never find it.Some of the most active researchers only spend a few days a month out in the deep forest. 
Then factor in the many unknowns about bigfoot like what times are they active? do they migrate? distance they travel from home and it makes it even more difficult to find these creatures. So timing would also play a big part in finding good evidence of sasquatch.

Then think about a creature that is trying to stay hid, a creature that is smart enough to hide,stay still and blend in to keep unnoticed, now it become ever harder to find.
Most animals have a natural type of camouflage and in many cases sasquatch are no different. In the fall they would easily blend in with all the brown colors or in the summer blend in with the trunks of trees and shadow casted by the overhead leaves.

How many deer can you spot?
People will then say stuff like, "what about all the trail cams? why haven't we got a good picture from one of them?"
First trail/game cams have a view limit and now knowing the round about figures of how many acres needing to be covered it would be kind of rare for a bigfoot to walk right up to one. Don't get me wrong I think we need more trail cams out there as it gives us a "researcher" in the forest 24/7.
So trail cams are a good idea but the volume of forest to cover is just too large for them to be really effective, yes they can work and should be used but don't be shocked if you don't get a sasquatch right off.
So lets think for a second, if a trail cam could cover 1 full acre then we would still need 747 million trail cams placed in the right angles to cover it all....in other words this would not be possible.
There has been a few good trail/game cam photos, I would think the best in recent times was the Jacobs photos from PA. It shows what many think is a young sasquatch and a couple bear cubs. It is easy to see that it's not just another bear cub and it has proportions more inline with a human.

(left & right is of the unknown animal and the insert is a bear cub.This is known as the Jacobs photo. )
 Now consider all the above info and that there is some areas that are either privately owned or government owned and researchers are not allowed access to these areas and this leads to the conclusion that it is very much possible for a very large,smart and some what camouflaged animal to stay hid.
Now what if, like some say, the government is helping keep the facts and sasquatch hid, this means there is still lots of work and research to do.
Happy Hunting!

  1. also alot of private property remains untouched by land owners for wildlife management, i have small acreage and about a third of the property we donot venture onto so that our wildlife has refuge. and alot of the large land owners use the same principle in our area.
    so there is alot of private property that remain pretty much undisturbed.

  2. cryptohunters:
    i have several videos i NEED yall to study. these pictures are from my security night vision cameras. the pictures and video have astonished me. How can I get these to you/?

    my youtube name is RADIANTGHOST. please contact me for better video. jerman38@a0l.com

  3. Abominable Snowmen, Legend Come To Life by Ivan T. Sanderson is a classic. He addressed at some length the sheer amount of wooded hilly or mountainous terrain in North America alone that could shelter most any kind of animal from formal scientific discovery for a long time. //BW
