I'm viewing this on a kindle so I have very limited means of frame by frame viewing the best I can do is start and stop which isn't very helpful.
BS!! They get just as big as they have plenty to feed on.
Imagine yourself in a deep dark Florida swamp and hear something large coming toward you scaring up everything in its path through the woods, then you
hear the foot stomps as it slows.You feel the feet hitting the ground as it is still many yards away like it was a man on his two feet but you know it
can not be as Andre the Giant would not be able to make the ground shake that way or plow through the thick woods that fast. Then you hear it make two
steps into the water separating you from it and then it stops, the water being only ten yards wide before it gets to the old logging trail and the
tree your hiding behind. The logging trail is to your left and right with water all behind you, the creature you can not see is in front of you
somewhere in the brush and trees.
You crouch down as to not be seen behind the tree and some palmettos, being in full cammo you curse as you have on your state mandated orange vest.
You have a fine tuned 30.06 bolt action scoped rifle. You have one shot if this creature rushes you. What do you do? You scope out the area and can
not see crap.
That is the situation I faced years ago. It obviously seen or smelled me because we sat there and played stand off till it started to get too dark for
my liking. I made a choice to get my ass out of there the way I came in and to get back to the main gravel road where I could use my gun effectively
should it chase me. I slipped back down the little dry trail as slow as I could watching my backside the whole time till I heard the dam thing trying
to flank me from where he was to the road. I ran back to the main road as I did not have that far to go. I made it to the road and breathed a sigh of
relief to see an old man with a shotgun starting to head in to see what the noise was. I tried to tell him what I had ran into being out of breath, he
thought it was a bear. I laughed and said sir ears don't get that big down here. He wanted to go in after the thing. Being a small old man I pleaded
for him not to go in but he did not listen. I sat on my knees and got my breath while stupid walked into the woods looking for his bear lol.
I kept my gun up in case he came out in a hurry. Soon as I got my wind I beat feet back down the road and got in my truck with my brother who was
waiting for me. I made my brother pack up in a hurry and we drove back by on our way out. I told my brother what had happened, he thought I was joking
with him. When he realized I wasn't joking he was baffled because he knew I had been hunting since I was six years old and wasn't afraid of much and
nothing when I had my extremely accurate rifle in my hands. He then started to worry for the old man who walked into the woods, I told him that I
pleaded with him not to walk back there and that he wasn't going to get me to go looking for him when it was to dark to even hunt at that time.
I hope the old man changed his mind and got out OK but I don't know if he did. I know that I will never be going back to that swap to hunt and you
will never catch me out in the woods at dark without my shotgun and a spotlight. Since both are illegal to have out at night in the woods don't count
on me doing that.
They exist and they are very very smart but this one was obviously running from another hunter who probably took a shot at him or at least made it
think that. There are many places man can not go in these swamps and that is where they are, not to mention Florida has many hidden sink holes and
caverns for them to hide in.
