Thanks Scott. Once again I must say that if more folks would stop and study the terrain around them using a setof binoculars, I believe they would be surprised at whatis out there. They may be walking past what they are looking for.
Scott, I hope all of your fans will excuse me for a momentas I go on a rant. Being unable to walk anymore, I sit onmy butt and watch U-Tube videos on our "smart TV". Of course bigfoot videos get of most my attention. I oftenfind it comical at the way some people go about gettingfootage of their bigfoot excursions. They might as welljust turn their cameras on and throw them into the woods.Many of them would be well advised to develop the eye ofthe hunter. Hunting with a camera is no different than using a gun or bow. One must know the ground to be covered and the habits of what you seek. From this knowledge you should be able to anticipate the time andlocation of your quarry. Is this 100% fool proof? No, notby a long shot, pardon the pun. But it does increase thechances. Studying the terrain before ever leaving homeby using Goggle Maps or Topographical maps of your selected location and reading reports carefully, all help. Stumbling into a bigfoot encounter means you probaly were not paying attention to your surroundings.I have said before, one must learn to relax in the woods.But it is better to clear your thoughts first to betteraccept what your eyes and ears are sending to your brain.
Scott, since it is the end of baseball season, I thoughtI would go for my third swing. I have recently watched avideo about a subject that I feel is not covered as muchas it should be. The U-Tube channel "Kentucky Outlaw" didan excellent presentation called "Gear Up To Get Home".It covers basic survival gear that researchers should have on their person when out in the wilds. We are alwaysconcerned about extra batteries for our gear, and the latest and greatest gadget to be used, but how many of uscarry waterproof matches, a lighter, cordage, a compassa spare flashlight or even let someone we can trust knowwhere we are going and when we are expecting to return.I have done this for 40 plus years, and I can assure youthat I never did. And I can also assure you that lookingback on this what I did was stupid. There were a couple of times when my return was in doubt. I won't bore you with the details but the fact that I'm still here is based on dumb luck not my survival skills. Remember, onceyou leave the confines on your vehicle, you have justsevered one link in your support system. No matter howmuch fun you are having, the main idea is to always comehome. And one final comment. We are now in hunting season. For the hunters be safe. For the non-hunters, thesame can be said. Remember we are all out here together.
