In Oregon, when we see deer grazing alongside the road, we are always amazed.
And in Oregon, we know that there are plenty of deer, bear and mountain lions. I've never seen a bear or mountain lion, and just a couple of times deer when hiking. I've never come upon a heap of bones from any of these animals.
So, it does not surprise me that I have not seen a bigfoot or its bones while hiking. This is my response when the question comes up Why don't more people see bigfoot or their bones? One point, many people see bigfoot. They just don't "report" it. Another point, the forest floor takes care of the dead animals in quick order. Most animals, I would think, do not die on a well-used hiking trail in the first place.
Again, we know lions and bears live in our Oregon forests, but few of us get to see them. And we know a fair number of people have observed what they thought was a bigfoot. We don't see the large population of deer, the moderate population of bears, a smaller yet population of mountain lions; so, is it any wonder we do not see what must be a very small population of bigfoot? ...
