Well, in my un-expert opinion,(how can anyone be an expert in such topics?) I feel that if you look at the creature and imagine it's facing toward the camera, it looks like a bear. You can make out a snout shape and the ears.
If you look at it as though it walking up the hill, then it could indeed be a humanoid shaped creature. You can see the ass and the arms and the whole of the back.
Whatever this is, it is definitely walking UP the hill. I see exactly what you mean where it could be a bear going downhill, I can clearly see the 'face' and 'ears' and what-not. But in all honesty that incline is so steep that it would literally be falling ass-over-teacups straight down, it's practically vertical. So whatever it is, it must be going uphill.
I can VERY CLEARLY see buttocks, shoulders, back, a hunched over head, and some other things that would point to it being bigfoot, but again, it could be a moose or bear I suppose. Btw, a bear isn't going to walk on 2-legs up a 60 degree incline...
Anyway, I wish the original poster would state the reason why he only took 1, unless I missed it? He already professed that he should have taken other pictures of the spot without the creature there, but still, please answer why only 1 was taken? Whatever the reason may be. I'm on your side, I think that very well could be a shot of what we're all looking for and hoping it is. Stay out there and try to get some more pics!!
Edit: Few more comments: he said it walked to the left and disappeared. The tree coverage gets heavier over there so it makes sense as to why he couldn't see it or follow it anymore. That is pretty rugged terrain too, can't exactly go running after it.
Also I'm trying to make out why I don't see "it's" legs, whatever "it" may happen to be?
Also to comment on the other post about a "normal reaction" would be to take an easier route of escape. Well, it's easier route of escape would be going downhill, but straight back toward the photographer, so actually it's best escape would in fact be going left and getting out of view in the tree cover, even if it still uphill or crosshill.
