Bigfoot - California
« on: Feb 01, 2018, 03:28:40 PM »
Is Bigfoot real, is it possible? A few guys from the great state of California claim to have killed not 1 but 2!

Anyone ever wheel in the Sierra Nevada mountains and think you've seen one?

I used to work with two different people who claimed to have seen them in the Sierra Nevada.  One of them liked to go out "hunting" them, and would ask peeps at 4WD events if they'd ever heard any whooping or tree-knocking late at night.

I am torn on the subject. On one hand where's the bones, trail cam pics or clear footage.

On the other hand there's ancient accounts before there was global communication where different people groups told of creatures like this from east Asia to northern Canada to tropical peoples.

I'm a skeptic but hopeful and the shooter in the attached documentary seemed genuine at least  to me.

Lacking verifiable physical evidence, I am a skeptic though I try to keep an open mind. Haven't watched the video yet but I probably will. Saw something on TV 2-3 years ago, a hunter claimed to have killed an adult and wounded a smaller one which died in his arms. He buried it, claimed it absolutely positively was NOT a bear, he has hunted bears and knows what they are. He led someone to the spot where he buried remains, they dug and got some hair which was sent to a DNA lab. The lab tested & analyzed and declared it to be absolutely, positively a black bear. The 'hunter' was thunderstruck. When it comes to bigfoot claims, I am a skeptic.
My goal in life is to be as a good a person as my dog already thinks I am.

I'm with Stocker on this one, though it may partially be due to sharing dna...  Many, many years ago, I heard claims of somebody finding a footprint of a bigfoot squarely in the mud along the shoreline of our local lake (trinity).  What was odd though, and it coulda been super bigfoot (the even more mystical, mythical monster), was that it was the only footprint around.  And it was shallow.  But somebody, somewhere up there, has a plaster cast of that print.

I've spent a ton of times in the woods and seen all nature of shy animals, and Stocker has spent quite a bit of time in the woods and even hikes every day.  Not saying if we haven't seen it, it doesn't exist, just saying why haven't we seen it?  Do we stink or something?

You can go through life being scared of the possible, or you can have a little fun and tease the inevitable.

Give a man venison, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hunt Blacktail, he'll be frustrated for life!

Like you guys I've spent my life hunting. I've hunted both alone and had dogs to hunt every creature possible, trapped for over 20 years and have never seen anything, but I live in N.E. Oklahoma & it's not nearly as rugged or remote as the mountain ranges out west.

The Discovering Bigfoot documentary on Netflix isnt to bad of a watch. The intro of the guy running around in the woods was a little hokey though.

They're OK to eat but you really need to slow cook the old ones or just grind it all into burger.

Keep it TOYOTA!

In the past years, I used to get a lot of calls from Jeep owners wanting to go slow like the Toy trucks.

My take on Bigfoot.  If he does exist, and is somewhat humanoid.  I just think its easy to not get spotted by humans.  You dont really have to be smart to trick humans or stay hidden.
