My sighting is documented here in several places so I won't bother to recount it in detail again. I find myself laughing (at myself) for my skeptical
self before I saw it. So many replies are exactly what I thought. No bodies, no genetic evidence, no good footage of it, all of that.
I am at a total loss how all of that can be true and so can the fact that I saw it myself. I had plenty of time to look, and it was illuminated in my
car headlights very well. It was not a bear, it was not a man in a monkeysuit. The sheer size of the creature throws those explanations out the
_ I was not on drugs or impaired in any way.
I also did not even consider stopping to get a better look or to look for evidence. I was in a VW Beetle, and from the size of that thing that
wouldn't matter much if he chose to be aggressive. Upon going back out there with the BFRO investigator when we got out of the car I was VERY
uncomfortable, even being armed at that point.
Making up a story would not have kept me out of the woods. I loved and still love the woods...but I don't go out there into the deep woods by myself
anymore. That was not a conscious decision, but more of an observation of my behavior in the last couple of years since my own sighting. If I was just
telling a story I would be doing it around a campfire with some gullible folks to spook out.
The fact is my desire to be out in the woods has evaporated. Dunno where the anxiety comes from as it was not aggressive in any manner. Maybe just the
knowledge that my 30-06 would be marginal at best against such a massive creature. No longer a skeptic here, but not sure what I believe either.
My old Lakota friend says it is an inter-dimensional creature or a space alien. From the enthusiastic and never ending supply of people who line up to
ridicule and call liars everyone who has a sighting, I wonder if there are and is evidence of it after all and maybe they just aren't saying so. A
Disinformation campaign if you will. Very successful one too.
My own sighting was on the border of Ft Lewis Army base and I know they have night vision, FLIR, air support and all of the above going over there
pretty much 24-7 practicing their night maneuvers.
All of those thoughts crossed my head upon seeing it. That there must be a breeding population, and they MUST have first hand knowledge of it despite
all the incessant skeptics. Call me a liar all you want as I don't care. Folks that go out in the woods need to know it is there plain and simple.
Spent all my life going out in the woods until I was 47 years old without seeing any hint of such a thing. Now I know different.
Now I am going to go back and read the last three pages.
