Go Out Into The Woods And See For Yourself, You Armchair Troll!
 (Or some other variation -- guaranteed to burn my butt!!!)
Why is it almost every time a person questions or states a disbelief on "evidence" posted, there's always someone else who jumps in with the "Go out into the woods" rebuttal.

Go out into the woods.

Said with a blind eye to someone they do not even know.

Don't assume the questioning party does not do either field work, or has never been out in the woods. It makes you look a fool. It doesn't assist the discussion. It slams shut doors that should be kept open in a possible exchange of information and learning. 
Not everyone who does field work or goes out into the woods really knows what's what. I have seen posts of footprints that the person is puzzled by that could be solved by a good animal track's handbook.

I have heard recordings that are nothing more than the area's medley of indigenous wildlife. Or even recordings played while making a new video of an alleged event. You don't need to be a field researcher to know that crickets don't sing in the middle of winter with snow on the ground.

If you aren't yet aware of the types of wildlife in your area and the vocals or signs or sounds they make, you aren't yet qualified for serious field work.

I'm not saying don't go out hiking and looking for signs of the big guy. You won't learn more if you don't. Just don't get upset if your "evidence" gets debunked or questioned in your current facebook group. They are doing you and all other members a disservice if they are accepting all posts as the real thing.

How much better would your comment along with your photo be if you could say "Looking for some help here. Saw this clear print and am not sure -- could be bear print. But as bear not reported in this location for a little while, I thought I'd show this around."

And how much better the discussion if the poster were not bombarded with the "Get out into the woods and learn more, you armchair researcher.". Instead, start a discussion. Stop mocking and insulting those who are honestly hoping for answers and learning.

And if there are still those ugly people who will insult and mock, ignore them. Eventually, if they are not engaged, they will go away or the  Administrators of the group will remove them.

And for heaven's sake, don't start with the armchair or weekend researcher bit. Be honest now. How many of you are out there 24/7 doing field work?

Uh huh. Right. We ALL have jobs to go to, families to care for, everyday life to live, no matter how much we desire to be out there searching. A weekend is sometimes the best most of us can carve out of our time to go out there. And trust me, it's never feels like enough.

Well, nuff said. I'm off my soap box. Good day all.
