Good point, and actually I almost edited to " most ", or " most that I have come across ".
The town I live in, Langlois, is very small. Actually Bandon, Port Orford also. ( 2 nearest towns, nothing in between ).
My point is, very small towns, everyone knows everyone. I have discussed it being a newbie living here the last 4 years, with everyone I have met. In Reno, seeing things on TV and such, people in " bigger cities " get the impression places like this would have talk all over about it. Thing is, the closer you get, the less " belief" there seems to be.
I can not in anyway say I know everyone, but I do know enough loggers, hunters, fisherman, ranchers, etc. to know out of a very large group of people, with generations of family here, only 2 people have mentioned it being a possibility. The rest laughed, and mentioned what I am saying.
Edit to add :
Have to add this. We live on 34 acres, nothing around us east, north, or south. Beyond the 34 acres east is all forest. Today I have been spending time on Bigfoot things, and my wife just called me out as the dogs were barking. She sits on the back deck a lot, and is familiar with the noises out here. She said there was a scream, louder and higher pitched then she has ever heard. She said almost like a Gueorilla....I said " Bigfoot ", she laughed.
I am putting on my boots and head lamp, and heading out....And my 12 gauge.
