Bigfoot
« on: January 20, 2012, 09:35:23 am »

Save the jokes, this is a semi serious question. 

Have you or anyone you trust ever seen anything that might lead you to believe they exist?

I only ask because I've never been a big believer.  I've never completely discounted the possibility but I couldn't be classified as a believer and I've certainly have never seen anything that was even close to making me think about a Bigfoot.

So, the reason for this question is that within the last year, two men that I know well, have known my entire life, and whom I trust explicitly have found/seen some things right here in SW Arkansas.  One of the men is in his 60s and the other is in his 70s. 

The one in his 60s is one of the best hunters I've ever known.  He is a self employed welder and he has practically spent his life hunting.  It probably isn't too much of an exaggeration to say that he has killed more deer than everyone on this board combined.  Last year, in the melting snow, he found two footprints.  I've seen the pictures.  They look like Bigfoot tracks to me.

The other man in his 70s is also a hunter and a logger.  As a logger, he spent practically everyday of his entire life in the woods and in some of the most remote country around.  If you've driven down a logging road in Ouachita foothills, chances are he logged the right-of-way.  So a few weeks ago, he saw right at daylight what he described as either a Bigfoot or the largest duckhunter he has ever seen standing in the middle of a river in about knee deep water about 150 yards away.  If it was a duckhunter, he was big, dressed in all brown, and had no cap on.  Oh, and he didn't have a gun either.  The funny thing is that when the Bigfoot/duckhunter saw him, he/it took two or three bounds right out of the river and out of sight.  If it was a duckhunter, he moved like no one the man has ever seen in waders and in knee deep water could.

So, there you have it.  Two guys who've seen everything there is to see in this part of the world, who are not prone to exaggeration, and who have never seen anything like what they've seen before.

They have been showing a show called finding bigfoot on tlc and travel channel for a couple of months watched it a couple of times dont know what to think about it. Video camera crews around they whisper to each other all the time and use radios something so hard to find and they are making noise yea right.

As for me I dont know what to think if they are out there it would be really hard for them to exist and we dont know about it with all the cameras and trail cams out there today.

I joke... but seriously, I have a lot of folks in the Pacific north west (little town called Leavenworth WA just east of stephens pass) Many of the folks in that area swear that there is something in those woods.

but especially in SW Arkansas, I agree with the above post about game cams and such

I've thought about the game cams and such, and I guess it would depend on what they actually are and how smart they are.  If they are pretty smart, then they may actually know enough to avoid the cameras.  Think about it a little.  Most people and most game cameras are put out in front of feeders.  A bigfoot might well be smart enough to avoid a feeder.  Those that aren't put out on feeders, are put out on game trails.  A bigfoot might be smart enough to avoid game trails most of the time.

If you had a fugitive out in the woods and he was a woodsman, I don't think any of us would ever expect to get a picture of him with a game camera.  We would know that he too smart for it.  What if a bigfoot has nearly human intelligence?  If it does, about the only way you would ever see one was if you caught it completely unawares or it wanted to be seen.

And finally, there are quite a few eye witnesses and quite a few videos out there.  It is just that no one takes them seriously.

How would a bigfoot know what a camera is to avoid it?

He might not know what a camera was, but he would know that feeders are put there by man and that he should avoid them.  Thus, he would avoid most game cameras merely by doing that.

It isn't that much of a stretch.  I've seen deer that knew enough to avoid feeders and I've also seen deer smart enough to get spooked by a camera flash and never show up again.

If there is such a thing, I would think that someone would have found some bones or other hard evidence besides foot prints or clouded images. I would also think that someone would have found some interesting leftovers from one of it's meals.  Finally, there ain't no way one of these "good ole boys" wouldn't shoot one of these things if they ever came across it in the woods. 

In other words, I guess I'm saying that I am not a believer.  But hey, I have been wrong before.

Well, I don't think I'm a believer either, but go read about it.  They do find deer carcasses that people who consider themselves experts on such things say are Bigfoot kills.  Apparently, on of the front legs will always be broken as if twisted by someone who was really strong and they are fond of reaching in and getting the liver and leaving everything else.  There are pictures.

As for someone shooting one.  There are reports of that happening as well.  I can understand the shooting one thing.  If they are there, I think people might be a little more reluctant than you think to shoot one because it looks so human.  If someone did shoot one, I think they might be more inclined to SSS than bring it in because once they got to it, they realized how human it was.

Bigfoot "experts" all say deer are a favorite prey, but I have a difficult time believing an 8' tall 500 lb. creature with a strong odor could successfully stalk a deer. There would be much easier meals.

There are millions of game cameras all over the country.  If there was 1 out there, we'd have a game cam by now.

I think they might have been real several thousand maybe even several hundred years ago and the folklore has just carried on this long.

Okay, whatever.  We are talking about theoretical animals and hypothetical situations.  All I'm saying is that if some good old boy did shoot one as was hypothesized, he might be a little reluctant to bring it forward as that there is a good chance he might be charged with murder.  But go ahead, be offended.  There is one in every group.

As for evidence, there is plenty, but none of it is definitive with an animal that doesn't officially exist.  There are even some game camera photos.  I suspect that if one is ever brought forward dead or alive and it confirmed that they do exist, then everyone will look at the evidence and say, "Well, of course", but until then, a track, a deer kill, a game camera photo, or even 30 seconds or so of film footage are not going to be enough to convince that they do exist.

Seriously, if you were to shoot one, what would you do?  The first thought is that you would bring it in and be famous, but on second thought, maybe not.  First, depending upon where you were, you might actually get charged with something.  And then, you would have to deal with all the crazies coming out of the woodwork calling you a "murderer" and threatening you and your family.

i do agree there is something out there. i pose this question for hunters . how many bobcats have you seen other than crossing a road . and yet we know they are plentiful . foxes too. these animals could live a similar existance to a bear. few people see bears or find remains but we have more than folks realize. my father worked in oregon as a high lead logger back in the 60's and they found tracks . whatever it was threw 4 55 gallon drums of fuel down in a ravine. it didn't roll them it picked them up and threw them . several of the loggers quit the job because that stuff kept happening. every morning when they drove in things would be broken or destroyed.

From what I've seen those searches are the absolute worst way to ever find one.  If those people on those searches were looking for something as common as deer, we would all be convinced deer were mythical animals.

After some of my hunts, I'm convinced that deer very well could be mythical animals.

There's been more evidence and sightings of sasquatch creatures than there has been giant squid yet scientists almost universally believe giant squid exist. I believe they do exist is very remote parts of north America and in Asia.

What river was bigfoot seen standing in??......& close to what town?

Exactly what area were the footprints that he took pictures of in the snow,  found??

Curious about the locations of both.

He might not know what a camera was, but he would know that feeders are put there by man and that he should avoid them.  Thus, he would avoid most game cameras merely by doing that.

It isn't that much of a stretch.  I've seen deer that knew enough to avoid feeders and I've also seen deer smart enough to get spooked by a camera flash and never show up again.

Well, got a couple of questions about these creatures not being caught on game cameras.  If Bigfoot's diet consists quite a bit of deer (as mentioned in the thread)......& bigfoot is really smart.......seems like he would want to hang around deer feeders.....hard to believe he would avoid them.  What better place to ambush a deer?  Just climb a tree close by & wait.....or maybe just get in a deer stand by the feeder?

One answer is.......since he is smart, he has probably seen a ton of game camera's on the hunting shows, & knows most of the brands.  He only exposes himself around the cheap cameras, knowing the flash probably won't work, or some other malfunction.....the hunter will show up, start cussing because he has no film...& eventually take the cheap camera down.  Bigfoot will then hunt that feeder, until the hunter replaces it with a quality brand camera.

 How many coyotes have you seen on game cams? Or bobcats for that matter.

     I have spent most of my life in the woods and have never seen anything that would lead me to believe in Bigfoot, yet i do. I am a college student and have done a couple of legitimate research papers on bigfoot as well as a great deal of personal research. At the very least their are an alarming amount of people who honestly believe they have seen one. I find it hard to believe that therecould be that many mistakes. There are stories going back to the 1600's of large unknown primates in North America, including a 2 week period where a group of Spanish conquistadors were harassed by one eventually killing the beast in a organized hunt.
      The reason i can believe these things exist is because all of the time i have spent in the woods i have never seen a bobcat, and only seen coyotes 3 or 4 times. The difference is that if Bigfoot does exist the population would be extremely scarce. Not only are the creatures scarce they probably have a intelligence level comparable to most other primates, such as chimps and gorillas(i forgot the details but it was reasonably recent that gorillas were only rumored to exist). The point of all that is that this creature would be elusive enough to stay away from any human activity. The areas these creatures would most likely spend the majority of the time deeper in the woods than most game cameras/feeders/stands would be, and would certainly shy away from anywhere with even small amounts of human activity. As for there never being a body found, how often do you find bodies of animals in the woods, bobcats? coyotes? remains are often scattered quickly by scavengers.
      SW Arkansas is probably the most likely area for bigfoot to exist in the state. Back in the 70's there was a problem were several people spotted a bigfoot, referred to as the Foulke county monster, over a time period of a few weeks. It killed livestock and terrorized a few isolated households looking in the windows and such. This was all very well documented. I would say that if 2 people you trust have a legitimate reason to believe they saw something its worth thinking about.

None other than President Theodore Roosevelt has seen something that is beyond explanation...

after 40 years of hunting i've never found the skeleton of a fox or bobcat and have only seen a few live and they have huge populations in this area. you see plenty of tracks. it wasn't till the early 20th century that gorillas were confirmed. as many bears as there are in arkansas i don't know anyone who has found a bear skeleton . and as for those shows , you aren't going to find anything walking around talking with all kinds of light and noise. and when they do hear something they get louder. they have found hair that scientists couldn't identify . it had no known match.

And, why would North America be the only continent without a primate--other than man?

Personally, I think there is an ape-like animal out there in the wilds of North America...I just don't think it's the monster that some would have us believe.  (Nor do I think it is the missing link!)

Agreed, it is simply a undiscovered creature, the only thing that makes it a "monster" is that nobody knows anything about it, and people fear the unknown

something that big in the dark qualifies as a monster and they appear mostly nocturnal. probably some type of primates . these animals are too well known throughout america's history . both indian and white people . many drawings date back to the 1600's. and the animal is always the same , from canada to mexico and there are reports from every other major nation with close to matching descriptions. the patterson / gimlin video is real. even experts say they couldn't have made a costume that allowed for muscle movement, breast swing , and the ruptured tendon to show in 1967 and couldn't even now because of the cost. also the shear number of sightings and pictures attest to something being out there. several of these by law enforcement officers . one has a video on his dash camera of one running across the road.

Not only that you would also have to worry about the other Big Foots coming after you for revenge.
all you would have to do is put cameras around your house to keep the other bigfoots away.

Okay, whatever.  We are talking about theoretical animals and hypothetical situations.  All I'm saying is that if some good old boy did shoot one as was hypothesized, he might be a little reluctant to bring it forward as that there is a good chance he might be charged with murder.  But go ahead, be offended.  There is one in every group.


don't get too worked up bro, we're talking about bigfoot... BIGFOOT!  ::)

Huntinhog is being sarcastic. 

Come on guys, there's only a small group of us here and a small number of threads.  Keep up!   ;)
