I admit, the sheer number of witnesses is tempting, but there is very little evidence that hasn’t yet been proven to be a mistake or a hoax. Pretty much everything submitted for genetic testing (hair, bones, flesh, and poop) has been a hoax or mistake.
And then, in some cases I feel like people are grasping at straws. In one episode, the guys are out in Montana and they have a supposed photograph of a Bigfoot footprint, which they claim to show Bigfoot’s long toes and mid-foot ridge. Have a look for yourself:

This is what they think is going on:
And this is what I think is going on:
Please go ahead and look at the original un-obscured photo again, and judge for yourself, you’re allowed to have your own opinions, but I’ve given you mine.
Moreover, sightings and population estimates don’t leave me feeling like there’s a viable population. If Bigfoot do exist, they’re obviously dying out. I also would have expected to see some sign of them by now. I pretty much live in the woods, and have seen the tracks and evidence of deer, elk, coyote, bears, cougars, raccoons, rabbits, and even feral goats. But, Bigfoot? Nope.
