We've got Zombie ammo. Now, we need Bigfoot ammo.
I understand you not believing and that's cool with me, it does not change my experience in the least. And yes, the story happened as I related it.
I did go back the next day with a few buddies but could not find any tracks. One of my friends who went with me is 6'8''. I had him stand next to the cedar tree where the creature was and I stood approximately where we were positioned in the jeep, he was almost half as tall as the tree.
I will admit, when we did go back down there I was still pretty freaked out and wouldn't have gone alone.
I gotta say, though, it was probably the best bigfoot story I've ever read.
Bigfoot is the one monster that scares the crap out of me. When I was a kid, we'd go to a single wide trailer (used as a summer vacation home) near a lake. I don't know how I got left alone there, but I remember having watched some of the scary bigfoot movies, and then being alone there in that trailer. The windows were too close for my comfort, and it was dark out. I could envision (fear) a big hairy arm coming through the window to grab me. Could also envision being watched by bigfoot.
They had some great scary bigfoot movies in 1970's. Not campy stuff like the 6 million dollar man episode, or the later Harry and the Hendersons. But real hardcore Swamp Monster stuff. I can't remember all the titles.
My take is that, they've been seen and recorded by too many people...going back for a couple centuries...for everybody to be blowin' smoke.
I believe that something is out there. What it is exactly remains to be seen.
As for bones, teeth, etc. We don't know the intelligence level of such a creature. Assuming that they are real, maybe they bury their dead. Maybe they take precautions to stay hidden. It's not all that unusual with shy, retiring creatures, especially the ones that are primarily nocturnal. People hunt Whitetail deer season after season and never see one. In the past, I spent a lot of time in the great outdoors...and I've caught a glimpse of only one Bobcat. For all practical purposes, one could say that bats don't exist in this part of North Carolina. I haven't seen a bat around here in 15 years.
I've never seen a Sasquatch, nor anything that I could say that was maybe a Sasquatch. I have briefly caught wind of that awful stench that the witnesses say goes along with one in close proximity. It was there and gone in the span of 8-10 seconds. We scoured the area the next day, trying to find something...anything...that would explain it. Never found anything. Whatever made it was moving, and the underbrush was too thick to see a footprint of any kind.
So...I'm not quick to believe, but I'm open-minded enough to say...maybe.
Bigfoot is believed by people who study it to be a descendant of sorts of Gigantopithecus. Gigantopithecus was believed to have been 8 to 12ft high. This does seem to square with the reported size descriptions people have offered in their accounts of their bigfoot sightings.
Here's where it gets interesting, though. Gigantopithecus is generally believed to have been a quadruped. There isn't 100% agreement on this, but that's the overall consensus.
If bigfoot is a descendant of Gigantopithecus, from a purely evolutionary stand point...it makes absolutely no sense that it went from being a quadruped to a biped.
Think about it. Bigfoot is believed to occupy primarily hilly and mountainous terrain. Bipedal locomotion would be a hinderance in environments like that. Those environments just wouldn't be conducive for evolving from getting around on all fours to standing upright and walking like we do. It just doesn't make sense.
I was skeptical until i met Gover Krantz at a anthropology meeting. He showed some evidence that was very compelling indeed.
I am a little familiar with his writings.
But I keep coming back to the same problem. If bigfoot is a descendant of Gigantopithecus, there is no logical explanation for how it evolved from a quad to a bi. None. Not in that terrain anyway.
There's also no reason for it to have maintained its' girth. A creature that disproportionately large just wouldn't do well in such a heavily wooded and steep terrained environment.
Not saying it's impossible, just that it's unlikely in the extreme.
Where is The pics he heard you clicking away at?
New York had a Big Foot sighting that was covered on the History Channel, The show was called Monster Quest.
Cool. Where was it? Adirondacks, Catskills, Southern Tier, or the Bronx?
I joined the NRA, have you yet?
Apparently no ammunition is good enough to nab a Sasquatch. My proof? No one has yet to shoot and kill a bigfoot.
As for me, I await more proof. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. By now I'd think at least one would be found by the side of a road, hit and killed by a car or big rig. Yet, not one such case exists. Even with story after story of drivers seeing Sasquatches crossing roads. That leads me to suspect it is nothing but a scary myth. Interesting, yes, but real? No.
With all the technology we have, we would of found him if he existed
the logical mind would think so.
I dont think we can claim to know everything about this world yet.

this is all anybody can ask, yet what everybody should expect.
Division of Homeland Security confiscated them from me. Apparently it was just Michelle Obama out for a stroll in the woods!
An insult to all squatches.
