Usually once, sometimes twice a year, I'll abscond from civilization, and run solo to some place around the country, different every time, into the
wilderness for a week, or two of getting away, far far away from everyone and everything.
I've never once encountered anything bigfooty. No tracks, or anything else spooky, and there have been times I've been in supposed bigfoot
territory, but, alas, no, I've seen no such thing.
If I did, however, sitting here at a desktop, I can say for certain that were I to run into one, I'd feel it necessary to take means to protect
myself, what with primitive wilderness trekking solo and all. I carry a pistol on these excursions, and have never had reason to use it, but, a
bigfoot, if close enough, would find me giving chase and shooting, for my safety, and also for SCIENCE!
In reality, I can't say what would actually happen. Getting stalked by wolves or encountering other big predators like bear, or puma, is scary
It's an "animal" I'm unfamiliar with and don't know how to treat as a hazard.
Supposedly they're nocturnal, and do essentially what people can do, like climbing trees and throwing heavy things but better and faster too?
They sound a little scary.
Close enough encounter, I'd shoot. For my own safety, and for science, but, in reality, on the spot, who's to say what I'd do?
