      Patterson rented the camera in May of 1967 so he did have time to become familar with loading and removing film...IMO...the second roll or the roll of film showing the track line was done at a complete different date...I can't imagine filming the creature, chasing and catching horses, reloading the camera, trailing the creature 3 1/2 miles, making the 3 1/2 miles back to the film site, riding another 2 miles back to camp for plaster, returning and casting the tracks and still have enough day light to take a film of the track line...

      Depending on how thick the plaster and wet determines drying time of the casts...as deep as these tracks appear a minimum of more then several hours needed for drying time...then we have Patterson posing with the tracks...not one picture but several pictures and what's kind of funny...he's clean shaven when he is casting the tracks but has a growth of beard during his pose for the pictures...BTW...the poured casts appear to have quite a bit of water being more or less poured instead of plaster being placed inside the track and spread by hand...

      I can understand why a few would simply take their word for what's reported simply because of lack of experience in the field...
