Lol killing time at work huh? Well to be honest I have no big foot stories unfortunately. I'm with you I don't believe. I think if there really where some big feet out there us hunters would have come a crossed one rather a skeleton, or something other then what's on TV.

I bet DR has one!

The closest story i have... I bought a bigfoot halloween costume a while back and was running around town while my brother was chasing me in blaze orange. I am sure the stories spread like wildfire. And we also knew where a buddy hangs his trail cam and walked in front and he thought he was going to be a millionaire because he had a pic of bigfoot. Haha

My dad is a believer, BIG believer. He has stories and he spent a good portion of his life in the woods.

Me not so much. I thought I I might believe just because of my dad and his friend but after bb pointed out in last thread on topic, there are a million trail cams out there, by now there would be a photo.

I believer a little. When I was a young boy in High School one of my teacher very cute teacher I will add. We were going to run away and go look for big foot. We never make it but it was fun talking about it and its something I will alway remember.

With all the game cameras that are set out every year, if there really was a Bigfoot creature, it would have shown up by now. Look at all the mountain lions that are filmed where the G&F say there aren't any! Guys have placed cameras all over Colorado looking for the elusive grizzly bear that some swear is here. None found! Bigfoot is bunk, the same as all those "My Ghost Stories" and "Paranormal" crap that's all over the cable TV stations. P.T. Barnum would be proud.

I saw a bigfoot in southern Idaho!! Not really, it was someone wearing a bigfoot costume with uncle sams top hat walking along the road. Sure was a surprise to come around a corner and see that in the middle of nowhere!!!

I want to believe in Bigfoot. He'd probably be a heck of a good hunter, and maybe he'd help us keep the wolf population down. I'm not sure if I'd want to shoot one though for 2 reasons: 1.) not sure how good he'd taste and 2.) I'd hate to have to decide between a shoulder mount or full body. :) I guess I'll wait until Mike Eastman comes out with his book on Hunting High Country Bigfoot.

Montana isn't Bigfoot-friendly:

Would i shoot if I actually saw a bigfoot....YEP! and I would sell him to the highest bidder and proceed to go on all my dream hunting and fishing trips! .. aside from that, I have spent roughly between 120-150 days/year over each of the past 7 years living in a sleeping bag in the mountains away from civilization while guiding. I have seen and heard some strange stuff for sure, but I am definitely not a believer that Bigfoot is around without having been seen and documented yet by anyone.

Can you get a Bigfoot tag?

Can you get a Bigfoot tag?

Good question Old Hunter. I was thinking the same thing. The fine shooting one out of season might not be worth it. One should also be sure about target identifcation. As mentioned in some of the above posts, what may seem like a Bigfoot is not always as it seems.

Watch out for something that looks like the below, they might shoot back. Ghillie Suits may look a bit like a Bigfoot but it might be hazardous to ones health in more than one way.

Very tough to draw, but the MRS will help determine the areas with best odds. Once you have a tag, these critters can be more elusive than Manti Teo's girlfriend.

How does Bigfoot meat compare to elk?

I'd always thought it would taste like chicken but I'm finding out it tastes more like Pizza.

Using the MRS I was able to bag my first "Footie" last year. He is at the Taxidermist now for a full body mount. Many people just take the feet and taxi them, then hang them around their neck on a gold chain... kind of a redneck "Rapper" look. Especially cool if you have fillings in your teeth, a few missing, or just Tobacco stains on them.

I know I would shoot one. Because if I didn't......I would loose a few friends all while making new ones with really nice jackets!
the next question is, being they are rare, would they be regulated like moose? What body part would need be a certain size before its legal to harvest? Head? Feet? Beard length?

I have personally spent many days in the field in a ghille and often worried a redneck like myself might not observe proper Bigfoot identification etiquette.

On the note of skeletons. I am a creationist to the core. Why has not any BFO members ever put the clues together. We didn't come from apes or Neanderthal cave men. Those just might be that body of evidence of their existence. Then again maybe they are the only mammal that can color shift like a lizard. No one knows.

Then maybe again they aren't native. Most pics of aliens are naked grey men running around. They could get cold and just decide to put on a space suit to stay warm? Ever notice how our astronauts bounce around when wearing a space suit but walk normal when they aren't? Just putting it out there.

One more thought here. Have lots of ammo extra if you do shoot one. The others might come out and quarter you before you can get pics to prove it! Lol

If it is a govt coverup, If some one shoots one, they might disappear too:) ( my dads theory)

You couldn't handle it. Why do think I hunt alone? :)
