Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Question Cryptozoology?

Anyone else find the subject interesting?

Animals/beasts that cannot be explained. Giant snakes, bigfoots, dogmen, chupacabras, wendigos, skunk apes, and other things that make strange noises in the outdoors.

I've heard things. Felt like I was being watched. Seen things out of the corner of my eye. Even had something run across the road in front of me early one morning that was feline, but too big to be a mountain lion.

Scientists don't know everything - as evidenced by the recent discovery of a penguin colony in the Antartica of over 1 million birds that were believed to be almost extinct.

Hunting puts you out where you are more likely to encounter mysterious critters - more so than hiking, because you are using your senses much more than if you were just taking a stroll up a trail.

I find it hard to believe no one has shot a big foot in all of these years.

Mystery ducks that can keep flying after being shot three times.

I've noticed that about some rabbits too.

I tend to say never say never...I have not seen anything..but I have spent time where I am not top of the food chain...neck hairs stand up...feeling of being watched. Who knows it is interesting.

Jaguars have moved into Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. When I was 18 and living in Colorado, I found feline prints that were almost twice as big as mountain lion. I took pictures with a ruler and showed them to fish and game. The warden said it was possible it was a large jaguar. That was back in 1990.

When I was a kid there were stories of monkeys that had escaped from the Lovelace research lab on Kirtland base. Im pretty sure that they escaped more than 40 years ago, but Ive heard of sightings as recent as 5 years back.

Ive never seen a mountain lion around here, but I've felt the chill that I'm sure was caused by a big cat watching me.

I've seen and heard some strange shit up here on my hill.

I would love to see Mothman and the Jersey Devil solved in my lifetime.

Every year a mountain lion is shot and killed here, after years of the DNR saying they were a hoax. A few bears in the northern part of the state and of course a moose or two always wonders down.

According to the movie THE WATCHMEN, Mothman ended up in a nut hatchery. The Jersey Devil was in a bar at closing time and a guy (now also in a booby hatch) took her home. Seems that was all it was, an UGLY woman.

Seen some weird stuff, mostly at night (had night jobs for years) that I do NOT talk about so I don't end up in a padded room with Mothman, but have been most scared in cities with the feeling I was NOT safe!

Not necessarily crypto -

Last weekend I drove to the the end of a trail, a wash, actually. There was a big rockfall that blocked it so I parked and climbed over it and started hiking up the wash to see what I could see.

I felt something was watching me and scanned to my right, up the canyon wall. Didn't see anything. Then I scanned to my left and immediately saw skylined a couple bighorn sheep. One was a ram with his horns all askew, like some kind of freak, and the other a female. I had my phone on me and tried to get a picture, but about the time I pointed it at them and zoomed in, they turned and left. A few moments later, the female came back to watch me. I didn't see that crazy looking ram again, though.
