Bigfoot

Just for grins what gun would you use to shoot Bigfoot? And how would you hunt them?

About 3 years ago, a game ranger told me that, here in Oklahoma, there were no Panthers, because no one had ever presented any proof of their exsistence. Lots of farmers and hunters had seen them, but they are pretty hard to shoot, so no one had ever killed one, so for the most part they simply did not exsist.

In the last three years, there have been so many hunters, that have put up game cameras, that there is now an abundance of proof that they do exsist.

The same may be true of bigfoot someday, but as far as ME shooting one, it will be hard for me to shoot over my shoulder, as fast as I will be running.

Wild Bill, on the black panthers in OK...

-there are (of course) conspiracy theories that the Wildlife Dept. releases the panthers on purpose to control the deer population (which makes really no sense to me, because their interest is to keep the levels high in order to sell tags). So much so that the Wildlife Dept. actually (in my understanding) came out with an official announcement to quell the rumors, stating they they do NOT have anything to do with panthers. But the theory goes that it's the FEDS that do it so that the state department can still have deniability without lying. Kinda silly, but.... Anyway, supposedly, a friend of a friend of a friend this year shot one of the panthers during deer season, but didn't go up to it and look at it - stayed away from it - and within 2 hours the game warden (state) just happened to show up sniffing around checking licenses, looking in ice chests, etc. Could be coincidence but the theory goes that they are radio-tagged, and when it stops moving, they come out. Pretty ridiculous stuff - Ha.

-Can you point me to the abundant proof of the panthers which were caught on game cams? Thanks.

It is interesting that the ' friend of a friend of a friend shooting a radio collar tagged panther/ mountain lion story ' and ' the state releasing them to control the deer population story ' are EXACTLY the same as the lies they are telling here in NYS. My own brother swore on a stack of bibles that he heard it from a trusted friend who heard it from a trusted friend....no carcass was ever shown, no pics either of a radio collared mountain lion either.

They exist in places that you wouldn't imagine that they could live in but the state releasing them and the friend of a friend of a friend story are pure bunk!!!

Sasquatch is said to inhabit the tangled brushy portions of Trinity County, California. I'm certain a 170 grain 30-30 bullet would produce a lethal wound. But I'd much rather capture it live and sell the movie rights.

FF,

I don't have any pictures personaly, but I will see if I can find anyone with a picture, now that I have figured out how to post them. With all the picture of 100lb Rattlesnakes, and 300 lb alligator gars, and 412 lb whitetails, floating around, I don't know if you can trust a picture or not.

I wouldn't even if presented with such an option (assuming Big Foot is real). My luck would be to find out it was a man dressed up in a suit and I'd get thrown in jail.

Big Foot is just waiting for the mother ship to return.

The same one I use for ZOMBIES.

I agree with WA, this should be closed.
