I've never quite bought into that supposition...until I started thinking about the effect that merely seeing it had on me. It never made a threatening move, in fact it barely moved at all...

Now part of it was the sheer, unadulterated "WTF IS THAT" phenomena... Coming face to face with a creature out of myth and legend has that effect. But it quite literally scared the crap out of me, and I've still not figured out quite why. I've encountered dangerous creatures out in the wild before...Bears, Pumas, even a Killer Whale once. ...and none had the profound effect that this had. As I said, I was transported back to the caves of our anscestors when the dark held unseen/unknown dangers that would eat you if given a chance.

I'm a bit more open to the concept, you might say...

Whether it actually is a paranormal beastie? I can't tell you.

I've read a theory that they...I don't know if "produce" is the right word...but produce infrasound that causes that deep visceral fear in people.

Thank you so much for sharing your story SeaGull! It's a fascinating read and you strike me as being very thoughtful and respectful.

First off, I've heard that as well, and to be honest it would make a lot of sense. It's already something that's used widely in the animal kingdom for various reasons. Tigers use a sort of infra-roar to stun prey before they strike, elephants use it to communicate with each other. The effect on the human body can range from simply feeling a little off keel, to experiencing a sudden (and unexplainable) disorientation, fear and, in some cases, sheer pant wetting terror.

Very nice. Gutted I couldn't have gotten involved a longer while ago when it was still fresh in your mind though! Unfortunately I live in the UK and it's highly unlikely I'd ever get to go out there and try to see a Squatch myself. I've read scores of sightings, seen dozens of videos and have come up with my own theories in regards to Squatches. Won't go into it, this is your thread (and it's awesome) and I'm very glad I eventually found it.

Coming face to face with a creature...

OK Seagull, what I want to know is the look of the face. Are we talking cave ape? Like a cross between a gorilla and a cave man?

Two years, almost to the day...since there's been any interest.

A fair representation...

This is as close a representation of what I saw as any...though not quite.

Darker though. ...and an artists drawing can not capture the power, the sheer physicality, of Sasquatch. Or the eyes, the eyes are what have stuck with me, even after seven, almost eight, years.

Ape? No, or rather not quite. Man? No, or rather not quite.

I've spent some little time trying to put into words the effect, a rather profound effect, that this creature had on me...and have failed miserably every time. There is something else there, some power, some thing that I just can't put into words. I feel it. I sensed it. But damned if I can describe it. It scared me right down to my toes, but I think that that was more a result of my very real shock at seeing it, than any sense of danger...not that it can't be dangerous should he so decide.

I know there are several members here who disbelieve anything to do with a large primate dancing about the woods...and I respect that belief, however wrong I know it to be. It's hard to make one believe something so patently strange without experiencing it themselves.

I personally am glad you came back to your thread (despite the time-frame).

I was a skeptic-Non-Believer till I had an experience with a large hairy bipedal 'something-or-another' that wasn't a bear or some other animal that i know of while hunting. So I am open to the aspects of such a creature remaining elusive to humans.

BTW.. I just recently came across a gentleman that (for me) seems to have the best theories (and interesting footage) on the subject by the name of Reo from Utah. He's constantly questioning himself and admits to paredolia at times influencing some of what he see. But some of the theories that he has backed up (with video) makes me believe that he is looking and thinking out of the box (without all the Woo-Woo-Ju-Ju etc.). Just plain old 'in the field' research and investigating.
