    Has anyone here ever encountered what they thought was a Sasquatch/ Bigfoot? Anyone know of anyone who has? I can't believe until I see solid proof, but just my opinion. What do you think?

    I saw Patrick Ewing once on an elevator, he had pretty big feet. Nice guy, he complimented my dog.

    Oh boy - this again.

    You know, there are one or two threads about this already? One with over 1000 posts.....

    Maybe it wasn't clear enough....basically what I'm saying is that aside from a few circus performers and NBA centers, that's as close as you're going to get to Bigfoot. The fact that anybody in 2014 can be such a poor judge of information as to believe that bigfoot exists is not only absolutely insane to me but extremely depressing.

    What about all of the DNA which was tested and some came back as "unknown primate"? I'm not a believer yet either but before we just shut the notion of existence down maybe we should gather any facts which some of us know or heard about. And then try to eliminate the obvious and widdle down to just facts and credibilities to help make some sort of case structure.

    They are quite common in NC I believe - normally seen riding their pet pterodactyls.

    Well, I saw what I thought was Bigfoot in middle Ohio once...there's not much of a story to it. I saw a tall, hairy thing going into the woods that didn't look normal. The thing had a floating, long-striding gait and plunged into the woods before I could get a clear look. But I had the strong impression that it wasn't human.

    These days, there are thousand of trail cams spying upon just about every conceivable forested area. Not one sasquatch to be seen. It's time to give that fantasy up and move on to something else. Like evil genetic food monsters.

    Which leaves us with no Bigfoot.

    Those DNA results were never confirmed, and the circumstances of the testing was less than scientific -- I am being diplomatic here.

    Excellent encounter. There are many everyday people who have brief unexplained encounters just like yours who try to explain it away to themselves or simply don't share the info with anyone. This has been going on since atleast the Native Americans were making cave drawings of these creatures. I appreciate your story and honesty.

    I've told this story before here, but here it is anyways:

    back in about 2003 or so I was staying at a cabin in Colorado near guanella pass, I was there alone for a couple of days until my friends would be arriving that weekend and we would be going mountain biking and camping.
    it was a small one room cabin with a small wood stove, no electricity and no running water. it was the middle of June, and we were getting some nice rainstorms that week. the first day/night was uneventful, just hiked around a little bit, had a nice campfire outside of the cabin and cooked some food, drank a few beers and went to sleep. the second day was another mellow lazy day, hiked a bit and did some prospecting for minerals, found a few nice clusters of quartz crystals near an old mine dump. that evening near sundown, I was chilling out next to the campfire, heard something moving around in the woods close by.
    I didn't think much of it, figuring it was just an animal of some sort, my only concern was about bears, I did have my mini 14 with me at the time which had a folding stock and 30 round clip full. about an hour later I heard a loud grunting whooping sound that lasted about 10 seconds! it was very loud, sounding something like a gorilla at the zoo but different.
    I was now a bit spooked, the sound didn't come from very far away, hard to say how close, but it was close, maybe 100 ft away or so. I was on alert and had my gun right next to me. it was soon dark out, a pitch black night, couldn't see anything farther than the light of the fire would illuminate. I heard some more movement in the trees, and I used my old maglite to scan around and see if I could see anything, but I saw nothing. as soon as I turned the lite off, I heard a large tree branch snap and hit the ground hard, very loud, it was close by,within 40 -50 ft. I flicked the light on and scanned the area I heard it come from, saw nothing but I did hear something running through the trees.
    I was now officially freaked out and was scared to death. I sat there for at least 15 minutes being totally quiet with my mini 14 in my hands ready to do battle with whatever was doing this. after a while of silence I went into the cabin and locked the door and stayed very alert hoping nothing more would happen. everything was quiet and normal until about 2 in the morning when I hear a slow hard knock at the door, maybe 3 or 4 knocks, about 2 seconds apart from each other, and the knocks were hard, I could see the door moving with each knock, I stayed quiet, with gun in hand. the only light was from a small tea light in a glass jar I had burning. my blood was pumping at this point!
    i was thinking to myself that something bad was about to happen. a few minutes after the knocks, I saw a shadow through curtain in the window next to the door it was moving slowly to the right of the door. the next thing I know the right wall of the cabin took a huge slam, it shook the whole cabin, it was one large slam. then I heard the same grunting whoop I heard earlier,only this time it was coming from just feet away, and it was super loud, I could feel it in my chest, the whoops would last for a few seconds then do it again, this lasted for what seemed like minutes, but was probably less than a minute total.
    then there are two more hard loud knocks at the door. in was in panic mode, I thought i was going to have a heart attack because my heart was thumping and my chest was pounding. within seconds, I hear something large and heavy on the roof, like it was bouncing up and down the was a chimp does when its excited at the zoo.. at this point I was ready to either die or go out and start shooting at whatever was doing all of this.
    something in me snapped and I ripped open the front door and ran outside and turned around and looked up in the roof,I saw something very large climbing down the backside of the cabin. at this point,I knew it was battle time. I ran and hid behind a big tree and waited for whatever it was to appear.I waited for about 30 seconds and I see what is by all descriptions a Bigfoot come sneaking around the left side of the cabin, it was looking for me. it was at least 7 feet tall,hairy and huge,had to weigh 600+ pounds in my judgment.
    i watched as it came around to the front and it crouched down and looked inside through the open door, it stood there looking in for a few seconds then it turned and looked right at me, it jumped toward me in a split second and stood there, and was less than 15 to 20 ft from me. I pointed my gun at it ready to start squeezing off as many rounds as I could.after a few seconds it extended its arm toward me with its hand out, as if it wanted to shake hands with me.then it did what appeared to be a smile.. I was literally trembling, almost passing out from fright. there was no way I was going to shake hands with a Bigfoot, the thing could easily ripped my arm off.. so I did the logical thing anyone would do in this situation,I shot it right in the forehead, it instantly dropped face first onto the ground. i put 5 or 6 more rounds into its head to be safe. I walked up to it and looked at it to see what it actually looked like. its head was turned sideways, so I got close enough to see its face, its eyes were still open, and when I looked at its face, I was shocked to see what I could only describe as the face of oprah! and this story is 100% pure honest total BS.. I hope it was entertaining though..
    *and for the record, I do believe in Bigfoot, and think I have been in the vicinity of one and possibly messed with..

    Could be.

    My opinion hasn't changed. I'm open to the possibility that BF exists somewhere very, very, very remote in a very small population, though it isn't likely. The BF of popular culture, which has been sighted from Alaska to Florida is entirely implausible. A widespread breeding population of large mammals would have left some physical evidence. Particularly when you consider where many of these sighting are in relation to humans.

    Peace,
