I am presenting this video and audio of two different Justin Smeja interviews. The 58 minute video interview is done by The Bigfoot Report.com's Ro
Sahebi. The 48 minute audio interview by Rob and Randy on the 25th Hour Radio Show.
I think the radio interview is much more compelling as Rob and Randy ask a lot of good questions and was done on November 29, 2012. They get Justin
to elaborate on what he has been through since coming out with his story and what bigfoot groups or networks his is in contact with, etc. The video
is a sit down interview and was published on July 15, 2012.
For those that can’t view the videos, a short summary:
On October 8, 2010 in Gold Lake California, Justin Smeja claims to have shot an adult (white/beige haired) bigfoot from about 80 yards away while
hunting with his buddy. The bigfoot was in a meadow and stumbled over the hill after he shot it. They got to the crest of the hill and witnessed two
juveniles seemingly communicating and looking for their parent. Justin then shot a juvenile and it rolled down the hill and rested at his feet. He
picked it up, described it as looking very monkey-like. They left the scene. Justin says he was a member of a taxidermy forum where it was compelled
to tell his story to an individual whom soon after relayed the story to a bigfoot researcher. The bigfoot researcher contacted Justin and urged him
to go back to the site and get evidence. After going back, Justin recovered a fur/hide sample which he describes as the size of a steak. He claims
to still have the sample in a block of ice to preserve it. Samples were sent to the lab. Justin took a polygraph test in which he passed with 98.69%
And although I couldn’t find inconsistencies with his body language (not that I would recognize them), I’ll just list the things I’m having
trouble with regarding his story:
1) He said he had a scope on his gun but didn’t see skin.
2) He just thought it was a monster and the thought of “bigfoot” never occurred to him. How does one live in California as an experienced hunter
and has never had a conversation about bigfoot?
3) He said the animal had its arms up, as in “don’t shoot” – who the hell would shoot?? Especially as an experienced hunter (as he often
brings up). He didn’t portray himself as an proper hunter. Although if I were in a bear or bigfoot suit and I could see someone was aiming at me,
I would take the head of the suit off or lay the F down, or scream my lungs out. But Justin agrees in the 25thHourRadioShow interview that by raising
its hands, it was showing intelligence.
4) He said the offspring were constantly coming together, communicating, then separating again as if looking for their parent. I would expect the
offspring to be able to track their parent IF it was a bigfoot, as they supposedly give off a strong odor, and he said it fell down the hill and
“sounded like a car crash.”
5) He says he shot a juvenile (because it seemed unnatural and out of place) and is seemingly very cavalier about it, even though he stated he
doesn’t hunt young deer.
6) He said when he and his buddy finally went back to recover the juvenile bigfoot body and “make some money”, there was 3 feet of snow. But when
telling the story, he makes it sound like they were surprised about the snow… but wouldn’t that be apparent as they were driving to the area?
Not sure why the woman performing the polygraph would request to have her face concealed since she said she has never met either of the two men
involved. I’ve never seen a polygrapher’s identity concealed before.
I can’t be 100% certain either way that Justin is telling the truth or lying but he sure is willing to go through a lot; 3 polygraphs and
interviews, which leads me to believe him. He has also been consistent from everything I’ve heard. With regards to the inconsistencies I’ve
noted, someone can find inconsistencies in any story; at least details that SEEM to be inconsistencies. But remember this is allegedly an encounter
with a beast that doesn’t exist. I can’t claim to know exactly how these stories should or would play out, I’m not that arrogant or
close-minded. 75% of me believes Justin is being honest. But for what it’s worth, these are my opinions on Justin’s story. I’m sure to start
and I’m hoping for a tough discussion, as I think this will be new material to most here on ATS. Justin actually gives more details on the
25thHourRadioShow interview. There is A LOT to this story, and even more to come, as Justin is still very much involved in proving himself to be
honest and that bigfoot DOES EXIST.
yah i shot big foot also but i didnt think it was important enough to grab the body and take 10000000 pictures and 45hr of video, hair samples, foot
prints, blood samples, ect. I figured I would go back in a few months and i twould just be laying there so I didnt bother.
some redneck retard says he killed bigfoot and just because he takes a test that anyone can pass people believe him and has the most stupid excuse why
they didnt take the body... right yah i kill big foot and just leave the body for later...
They got to the crest of the hill and witnessed two juveniles seemingly communicating and looking for their parent. Justin then shot a juvenile
and it rolled down the hill and rested at his feet. He picked it up, described it as looking very monkey-like. They left the scene.
So he shoots and kills a juvenile Bigfoot, picks it up, puts it back down and then just leaves? Without taking the body or any evidence?
Doesnt make much sense at all.
This makes me highly skeptical, without evening listening to the audio.
well i guess if you are stupid enough to shoot something that puts its hands up then shoot one of its kids just for the kick of it i guess.. then you
could be stupid enough to just leave the body and go home to jerk and drink beer.
I completely disagree with this guy but a star for you for actually taking the time to make a Good Thread with descriptions, opinions and vids! It
seems like very few members here understand what a good thread is supposed to look like.
THIS is how a thread should be done!
OP, I want to believe!
Edit: I flagged this for future use!

Maybe he did take both bigfoots. Just think how much they could be sold for to a rich collector of animals. I would be interested to see the
polygraph test of him denying he took them. Wouldn't you take them and sell them for a huge fortune?
