Have you found any of the answers?

I am still fighting the impossible fight but the behavior and Intelligence of some make it difficult. I live in the Ohio boonies now, which makes it easier to get out, but right now I have a broken foot so I am on hiatus. Glad to hear you are doing well.

I keep waiting for the punchline. I'm 47 minutes in, and all I've heard so far is really mundane stuff about radio telemetry.

"Something took the tag."

"Later, we found it from fixed-wing aircraft."

Okay, welcome to wildlife tracking circa 1975.

tl;dr version:

NAWACkies track animal that by process of elimination has to be a bigfoot because it 1) roamed over a 70 square mile area that is way bigger than any bear's, and 2) was active in early December and again in January when bears are dormant.

Assuming they aren't just lying or getting pranked, they have NOT ruled out black bear as having picked up their transmitter.

Black bears do not den in the Ouachitas until late December and they are easily roused in winter, especially during mild spells (such as the 50s–70s F experienced there in January 2016). Also, in a recent study in Florida, home range for male bears averaged 85 square miles.

Ignorant or disingenuous? You decide. Either way, there ain't no such thing as a wood ape.

Thanks. I had written a more detailed response, but I got logged out and lost it.

In addition to the general derpitude, they also describe their efforts to submit it for publication but were thwarted by those dog-gone closed-minded scientists. So they're planning to "self-publish". If true that they submitted it somewhere (and are giving up after one try), then the issue they seem to have run into is that they have not been able to rule out a bear.

Both. I can only point and giggle at these ape-tards pushing their version of stupidity thinking the public is buying it. Only registered BLAARGers do. They pretend to have the "where the evidence takes us" answer as to why a circa 1975 animal tracking device still existed was picked up and taken for a short ride in rural Oklahoma and in the same convo verbally lament why the rest of the world insists they bring in a dead body instead. They also discuss how obvious it is Bigfoot's right there behind every tree yet science won't take even a quick look because... With the NAWAC's conflicted premise being, apparently, Bigfoot can only be proven by "science" even though the NAWAC is far more capable of that given they're seeing and chasing Bigfoot literally everywhere they go. In case it's unclear to these noobs, there's been an unwritten promise for many centuries that if you drag in the first sumpin' sumpin' as the proof of sumpin', you'll be the one credited with the discovery of that sumpin'.

According to them this tracking is so "extremely laborious" and intensive that there's "probably not any other group that exists that could do what they've done". They're ironically non-ironically right about that. To paraphrase a line, if they can track it they can kill it, but nope not these "not rocket science" call center applicants. They don't even want to use all this tracking to get a good picture or to look for some wayward turd or a furr-ball. They just want to claim "they're tracking it". I guess because they can learn so much more that way? Well, alright.

Keep On Trackin™

Hmmmm....Number 1 is a definite no-no as you well know, bigfeets never show up on camera, except of course when Roger says ACTION!!!! Besides who wants to pile through all those pics of birds, raccoons, squirrels, ect.

Number 2 nah just hide in the cabin....Bigfoot will come to you!!

Number 3....nailed it!! Bask in the glory of 15 minutes of fame as a bunch of Narwackos playing army in one of the most accessible NF around.....it's all about the hunt!

A string trap? .... A string trap??? Really? GTFO. Bigfoot is a wily, forest ninja that cannot be photographed, or anything really, coz he's so super smart, has mysterious powers and is hip to human trickery. Yet this dumbass Bigfoot gets glued with a "nano chip" tag after blundering into a string trap. Let's see if I got this straight... Can't photograph, catch, get samples or even shoot Bigfoot, coz he's so smart. But, string trap with a tracker? D'oh!. I wonder what Gablemp thinks about this moron? Is this the wood ape village idiot of Area X?

Listened to the podcast.

My favorite part is that they hung the chip at roughly 7.5 feet in the air, covered in a cocklebur. What is the typical height of an alleged wood ape?

Apparently this thing has been stuck to a bigfoot's face/head for the better part of a year and the BF either didnt notice it or is incapable of removing it.

Of course cockleburs grow very commonly in this region. A typical BF must lead a life of misery covered in the things.

In theory that keeps Bigfoot just a cell phone call away. I can't quit laughing at the scene of them all chasing around a little phantom blip on their cute little "telemetry" screens. I'm pretty giddy about it. They probably have naked telemetry parties every third Thursday in Room 409 at the Tulsa Inn laying around naked in pools of rapeseed oil waiting for that day's next coveted "beep beep" to show so they can get down to the business of having a seriously naked partay. We can only speculate about that though.

If they're chasing anything they have no genuine clue what it is, yet they blow their brains out 'pondering intellectual' how bleeping "this isn't rocket science" obvious it is that it could only be a mythical beast. Maybe as hilarious is how the organization that pretends to be so obsessed with "protecting" that beast also hates the following words: clear, concise, conclusive, truth, real, body, solid, daylight, video, picture, reality, sober, intervention, meetings, out-patient, lithium and Okie.

Okie?

The question as I see it: It's not whether or not we believe what they say, it's whether they believe what they say or not.

I still can't help but giggle a little every time I see the terms "Wood Ape" and "Valley of The Wood Apes". WTF? How long have they been there, 10 years? Their outpost is smack dab in the middle of this notorious Valley of The Wood Apes and yet we've never seen one picture of these beasts or the valley. As far as I know THERE DOES NOT EXIST EVEN ONE PICTURE OF A WOOD APE. Are you ******* kidding me? Not one? That's not just colossally contrary, that's cosmically contrary to what they've been claiming all these years. How is it possible that in 10 years they haven't ACCIDENTALLY got a picture of Bigfoot? How is it ONLY THEY (apparently) have been granted permission to "see" these wood creatures? Do they even have cameras? Do they all regularly meet at the WASh™ (Wood Ape Shack) for some D-n-A (discussion and answers) and then while basking in the afterglow afterwards create this month's excuse as to why they still don't have any actual Wood Ape evidence? And is that a legitimate write-off?

From their Mar '11 page:

"Somebody accidentally left one of our many cases of KY-Jelly™ out one night and the Wood Apes got a hold of it. Which they then proceeded to smear all over our multi-stage bi-resonant 12 phase tractor beam up on the hill and it broke and made this really loud explosion sound. That sound scared all the local Wood Apes off. Yep, that's what happened. We watched as hundreds of them left the area immediately. Whole Wood Ape families and longtime Wood Ape associates, even their lowly trace removers, POOF, all gone. It's a real shame. We don't know when they'll be back."

Thanks guys for all you do in the name of science.

Totally. The funniest **** of all is they're ALL members here at the ISF and yet don't want to discuss anything with us. Based on what they SAY, they're seeking the same answer we are, the truth. Brown, Flowers, Hill, Melissa, and probably Meldrum too. They all claim to be looking for it yet never seem able to discuss the truth when it's not the right truth. They want the "truth" alright, as long as it includes Bigfoot.

This Sharon Hill person, as an example, has shown herself to be a complete and utter phony "skeptic" since her early days here, and I'm confident her book reassures us of that fact. She's no more skeptical than I'm a polar bear. She's either in love with one or more of the NAWACs ("oh those hunky call center studs on weekend leave, let me at 'em") or she has serious psychological/honesty issues that smarter people need to steer clear of. She has yet to present even a single objective assessment/opinion of anything she's been "studying" (including her book I'm sure) while at the same time dishonestly reassuring everyone how she's a "good skeptic", capable of discerning truth from fantasy better than you or I because, umm, she doesn't have a dog in the fight. The hell she doesn't, she has a huge one and its name is The NAWAC. Curiously, the only people with no dog in the fight is US actual skeptics here.

So what say you Brian Brown Jim Flowers Melissa Sharon Hill?

One of my favorite things was when they posted the video of the guy (Mark, of Bravo Team) re-enacting what happened when the dark shadowy thing was shaking the bushes, while the NAWAC guy was sitting in a lawn chair in a dry riverbed. He tried to stand up to shoot at the shadowy lump, and his foot got tangled, he was tripping, and he still fired his rifle at the shadow.

Here it is
https://youtu.be/0Cstl-8xHAE?t=56m37s

Notice how when he is describing the sighting, they send someone up to reenact it, instead of looking for the hundreds of hairs that would have been shed by such a creature storming through the brush, they have a NAWAC member storming through trying to look like the beast for the camera.

He tried to stand up to shoot at the shadowy lump, and his foot got tangled, he was tripping, and he still fired his rifle at the shadow.

Here it is

Notice how when he is describing the sighting, they send someone up to reenact it, instead of looking for the hundreds of hairs that would have been shed by such a creature storming through the brush, they have a NAWAC member storming through trying to look like the beast for the camera.
It's so literally insane.

So here's the rumored monologue NAWAC member WeeWee "Sagebrush" Herman was overheard telling them all at the bi-monthly meeting of NAWAC's Alpha Beta Rio Bravo Team #69 meeting at the Double Shake Shack™ in downtown Draper:

"Folks, folks, calm down, I have some wonderful news. If we, the mighty NAWAC, can tell just one hundred more Wood Ape stories to friends and neighbors and also post just 17 more videos on YouTube™ of nothing but us talking, we can legitimately petition the federal government to get Wood Apes officially recognized as a species of bipedal primate. <raucous applause> And then we'll finally be able to shut up all these meanie head skeptics who hold that sacred "why don't you get a picture neener neener" over our heads all the time. Pictures? Who has time for pictures, sheesh! They know so little of our humanitarian efforts to build better lives for everyone. We're literally on a mission from gawd. And once Woody A. is finally recognized, we won't ever need any pictures again and the federal government will be there to back us up on that. We can even sue if the picture question is brought up. Then those stupid meanie head skeptics can go pound sand."
