In his latest post he claims to have made inquiries in the past but won't reveal the outcome of those....duh...that's surprising. Now he's going to be less direct about it, whatever the heck that means, but as he states...it's time and the HIFLIER is on it!!! The arrogance of this doofus is astounding LMAO!

He (hiflier) explained the less direct approach in the last few days. He's cherry-picking points of interest/evidence that he feels are important to his cause (that BF is real).

Next he chooses a person of interest in the academic world and asks about said point of interest without any mention of bigfoot whatsoever. He alleges that he did this with the 'meganthropus tooth' and the response given was that it was a human molar.

Next in line will likely be an arborist, to whom he will ask vague questions about stick structures. Again -- no mention of BF to be made in his line of inquiry. Is this trolling? Sure it's trolling, but he is likely to get honest answers by excluding big hairy woodapes. He might even educate himself as to the absurdity of 'bigfoot evidence' in the process.

The problem is I see is with hiflier's character in general. Will he accept mundane answers to his questions? Or will he have a typical hiflier reaction; lose control of his emotions and go full-blown conspiracy theorist?

I wonder if he (hiflier) is using his full name in these emails. If so, it will only take one 'academic' to do a quick google search to learn that he is the author of a 'sasquatch field guide' and all his cards will be on the table.

These idiots keep getting it wrong, it's Feeled Guide™. For instance take this weird passage from Meldrum's Sasquatch "Field" Guide: "Sasquatch finally feeled me that night, but I didn't care. It was ecstasy! As glorious and majestic as any of heaven's promises. And afterwards we both wept, and then we slept."

Amazing(ly funny) how so many field guides can be written about a beast that's basically never even had its picture taken. Another passage from the guide: "When you're out there, always try to identify the target using the images provided herein as your expert guide. For example, if you take a look at image #37 on page 64, you'll see where a picture of Sasquatch would be if we had any pictures. Of Sasquatch. Nevermind."

But seriously, for Hiflier, **** him! He needs a new hobby.

Where is Hifliers field guide published? As if the world needs two field guides to a creature no one has ever seen.

It's amusing the way bigfoot enthusiasts attempt to bull **** footie into existence, then whine and moan when they get called on this obvious ploy. The myth they've created is a 6 to 9-ft monkey man wandering about the length and breadth of NA, but leaving no hide nor hair behind. They've screwed themselves into a corner and there's no way to get out of it, so they blame science and meaney skeptics/scofftics for their failure of their silly myth.

I think this is CGI rather than a person in makeup. I would say the same about my avatar.
