Bigfoot tracks found on Vancouver Island

A fisheries officer claims to have witnessed a large bipedal creature on the Canadian shoreline.
Luke Swan Jr. had been out on patrol in his boat near Tofino last Wednesday when he caught sight of a strange animal crouched down at the side of the water. He maintains that the creature was not a bear but was otherwise unable to identify it.

"Something really big stood up, probably between eight or nine feet," he said. "The first thing I had in my mind was to get off the beach. I pushed off as fast as I could and got to deep water."

Swan later told his father about what he had seen and the two men returned to the same location to look for clues. What they found was a series of large tracks measuring 16 inches long and up to 9 inches across. They also came across a number of cedar trees that appeared to have been stripped of their bark.

"When I saw it, it scared me," said Swan when asked about his encounter. "A lot of people probably want to see it, but in the end it might scare them too."

Good point. Maybe we'd only need 50,000,000 cameras. I think Best Buy is having a sale....

Good point. Maybe we'd only need 50,000,000 cameras. But then other factors would be: Different paths they take Different days Population numbers That could take us down to 50,000 cameras which would go down each day.

Take in this one factor : Knowledge of game and trail cams..... .Then reality sets in, and people without this common sense, ( who seem to think one is needed on every tree ) can maybe see the point being made.

I think your post got snipped, it seems to be missing a piece. But all joking aside for a minute about 5m cameras. I have very limited (lay) knowledge of trap cams. I assume by your drift that if you have knowledge of the area and what you are stalking that camera placement can be fined tuned through "common sense". Fair enough and valid. What I do have first hand knowledge of is what t... [More]

I assume by your drift that if you have knowledge of the area and what you are stalking that camera placement can be fined tuned through "common sense". Fair enough and valid. What I do have first hand knowledge of is what those woods are like. I've spent many many years walking countless miles through them in days gone by (and never encountered a BF BTW). I even fought forest fires as a volunteer for the State of Oregon for 3 summ... [More]

But you would not need to cover every foot. Since bigfoot walks, it would significantly reduce that number. well, in reality, you have no idea if someone *did* see a BF and just kept their mouth shut. but if someone ever said they saw a BF - as was said in this OP, then ppl say he's lying or it's mistaken identity. IoW, what's the diff??

Not if 4 bigfoots planned a scenario to mess with all 4 cameras at the same time. Or... they could throw rocks or sticks.... BUT.... a true bigfoot beleiver would claim that the cameras being knocked out is Proof of the bigfoots being there.

So I'll put the question back out there. Given we've purchased the best trap cams and we've hired the best trap cam setter in the entire world, how many cameras would you need in that terrain to cover say ... 100 square miles? I think it depends on the time allotted to capture a pic of one. Just a couple would be fine if you had a full year. A higher number of camera's would be needed for less time.
