As an avid hunter, and Ex-Boy Scout I always thought I was ready for anything, a fall, breaking a leg, getting lost. But last winter I found out I
couldn't have been more wrong.
It was a day in early December, I was out hunting with my Step-dad, my friend, his cousin, and his grandfather. We brought along some Pepsi as
refreshment and we were running low in our shanty. I went to go get some out of my step-dad's van. As I left they asked, "Could you go into the
woods on your way back so that you could scare out some deer?". I agreed and started up the road to the van hunting rifle in hand. I retrieved the
Pepsi and went into the woods, not prepared for my next sight. Not long after I entered I heard the sound of cracking ice on a creek I new because of
the general direction. I thought that either there was a bear or a large deer on the ice. I quietly went to see what it was hoping that it was a big
deer. But as I neared the top of the hill that separated the creek from my sight,I saw a large footprint. I hoped that it would tell me what was on
the ice. Boy did it tell me! It belonged to a large primate, now as this was winter we can rule out this being human because no man would go out bare
foot. Plus it was way to big. I ran out of the woods as quick as possible never minding to leave a trail as to show my companions were this area was.
when I got back I told them my story and they laughed at me!!!! I never was able to prove my story to them, but some nights I can't help but wonder
to myself. "What if I was brave, went over the hill and shot Bigfoot? Would I be famous?" Such a big opportunity lost by and act of sheer cowardice.
If you live in Pennsylvania or anywhere and have seen Bigfoot please tell me. Also feel free to tell me your thoughts on the story of my greatest
regret. Thank you all and be safe in the wilderness, you never know what you might see out there.........
