Default Bigfoot!!!!

yall know how your mind starts wandering while you sitting in the stand for hours on end. well I had a thought the other day. say your sitting in your stand, and a bigfoot steps out at 20 yards, perfect quartering away shot. knowing that there has never been positive evidence of their exsistance. do you shoot it or let it walk? If you where to shoot it, could any charges be brought against you for doing it? there is no season on them, and their not a game animal. Im not sure what I would do.
ps; Im not crazy or anything like that!

I seem to remember hearing that they made it illegal to shoot bigfoot in one or more of the western coast states, maybe WA, OR, CA or AK.

In any case, if it weren't a game animal or classified as a varmint - you might get yourself charged with some violation in almost any state. Of course the authorities would probably confiscate the carcass and you couldn't even sell it to pay for your legal defense. On the other hand you'd be forever
(in)famous, depending on one's point of view.

I know where a big foot crosses the road a couple of times a day in Heard. Dont belive me you say? Ask Dawn2Dusk he has been with me a couple of times when we saw him.

Default Stolen Game cams and Bigfoot? Coincidence?

Besides, If this creature were to exhist, why is it that out of all the trail cams in the world, none have gotten an exposure of big foot?
Some folks say that they are just to intelligent. Intelligence as to avoid humans I can accept, However, intelligence with built in Game cam radar is not a very good argument.
I know of a lot of guys that are afraid of their own shadow. I worry more about snakes and large angry boar hogs. Not some 1500 lb ape man creature that lurks in the back of the minds of grown men that have to wait till daylight to head to the stand.
GAME CAMS? Seems a lot have been stolen in the past few years? Bigfoot may be the culprit. The flash goes off, and Bam! Bigfoot confiscates it. Now there's a thought! :speechles

Jeff,
you just made sure you got to Hilton before he got to you!!

How far do you think a person could get in court using this defense:

"I thought it was Big Foot. How was I to know it was my (shiftless, good for nothing) hairy brother-in-law?" :speechles

Some of the stories will raise the hair on the back of your neck. I ain't sayin that I do or don't believe, but too many folks seem to have seen something.

Bird hunter only here, so I'd most likely be armed with low brass 7.5 shot in a 12ga. It ain't gonna get a shot outa my gun unless it makes the first move, and is within 10 yards.

Default speaking of bigfoot . . .

a buddy of mine i grew up with swears this happened to his dad . . .

his father and a family friend were hunting together years ago and it was brutally cold so no one was out on their lease that day. they both got so cold in the woods they decided to head back and sit in the truck for a little while to warm up.

as luck would have it, as they were getting into the truck a small buck popped out just down the road and the friend shot the buck. this was behind the truck. they figured they'd pick him up later and warm up in the truck a bit first so they got in. after warming up, his father took a peak in the rearview mirror and didn't see the buck out there any more. they'd watched him drop in his tracks earlier so this baffled both of them. they got out to see what was up and they said they saw huge footprints and drag marks on the ground where something big had dragged the deer off!

they searched for more sign of the dead buck but found none. no blood, nothing. after seeing those huge footprints they decided to get out of there!

hey, i wasn't there and he swears it happened. take it for what it's worth to you!

Im pretty sure I wouldn't shoot one unless it was a threat to me... you never know what somebody may be doing to pull a prank. There would always be a doubt in my mind that it may be a costume. Now if somebody is stupid and foolish enough to run around the woods during deer season with an ape suit on may need to be erased from the gene pool anyways!!

Great link Nick T, thats some pretty intresting stuff... I want to believe but I just think that Georgia is too heavily hunted (deer, etc.) and explored not to turn up some kind of tangible evidence.But as others have said there are animals in our very deer woods that we never see or find dead but they are for sure there... so who knows??

Click on the "Cherokee County" link and you'll see the report I made of what I saw years ago...

Neat site -- It's always been a favorite of mine!

this is pretty wild, but i was checking out the bfro.net site on bigfoot sightings in georgia. they had two listed for tattnall county and i viewed those.

the first sighting in 1982 actually took place at the old beards creek church. this run-down church and the land were purchased back in the early 90's by the father of one of my best friends. the church is on the area road around ft. stewart. they remodeled the church inside and out and turned it into a weekend getaway home since they lived up in marietta. place didn't even have a phone line since his father really wanted to "get away".

last time i passed by there was in the summer and they had a for sale sign up. the last time i actually spend the night in the house was around 1997 or so. i was down there a number of times through the early to mid 90's and hunted ft. stewart which was right across the street.

barry never mentioned bigfoot sightings around there. according to the website guys at stewart had an encounter in dec., 1995.
