If I wanted to know about the existence of a critter in a given area I would talk to as many fur trappers as I could locate in that area. Their success relies on keen observation of things in the wild, a hunter may not notice an out of place cocklebur on a creek bank but a good trapper will notice it and check it for any fur on it to see what critter it came off of. I figure a man who can spot and ID a tiny mink track could surely spot a track left by a 400lb critter walking on two legs.
I gotta go with no, at least not in the area I live. Every year someone spots one in the Shawnee National Forest but of all the hundreds of deer hunters who hunt on the public land, most with cell phones I would think the odds of someone not getting a good, clear photo would be slim.

Every creature out there eventually dies- but no modern day Bigfoot bones have ever been found to my knowledge. That's a NO.

You have a point. Now that you mention it I have never come across bobcat, coyote, or bear bones in the woods. Many deer skeletons though.

Ive found a couple bobcat skulls ...bears no ...I can assume alotta bobs probably die in dens ...unless something kills them on open ground ....probably not to likely I suppose . I imagine with a bear ...theres probability someone.could beat you to the.find ..or rodents ...Bear and bobcat densities by no means compare with densities of deer per square mile in the same equation ...Now say ..you lived in Canada ...Nova Scotia ..Kodiak or Anticosta island ..might find a ole bear mug easier lol

Porcupines and squirrel and probably other rodents will gnaw the bones of dead animals until they are gone. Don't know why. I've never seen or heard of porkies in my area but I have seen the gnawed deer bones squirrels have left behind. There is an abandoned truck battery about two miles up the mountain in the woods that some critter or another has gnawed the posts clean off. Again, why? It's a mystery. :)

I’d believe there’s a living Bigfoot before I’d trust a politician ha! The story had to of started somewhere but there’s no way there’s a living Bigfoot in America today and we not have proof at this point
My opinion is it’s like the “Volkswagen sized catfish under the dam” at every reservoir - stories grow with time .
Really...where I live the fish is as big as a school bus...LOL...LOL...

Neill, here is why animals eat bones of other animals
