Hunter after Bigfoot encounter: "I wouldn't want the tangle with one of them period"

I was out early in the morning just after daylight looking for buck sign and squirrel hunting. Mainly looking for rubs and scrapes for deer hunting the upcoming season.I was on a hillside overlooking a steep canyon in rough country on the bryant creek watershed. I sit for a spell and was watching the other hillside. I was carrying a browning bottom eject 22 rifle and had planned to harvest squirrels but had passed on several in hope of not alarming deer in the area.. I saw a flicker of movement on the adjacent hillside about 150 yds distance. I unlooped my Nikon binoculars from around my neck and looked over where I saw the leaves move. Even though it was late October and a cool morning it hadn't frosted yet and the leaves were mostly green. What I saw was a small sapling move. I saw black fur probably a foot sized patch through the foliage. It was standing still at this point. I thought bear or maybe a cow and was unconcerned. It finally took a few steps and I gasped when I realized it was a upright animal and covered in black fur. was a dusky black and not shiny. It was moving parallel on the hill and angling somewhat upwards. I'd say I watched it for about 10 mins and had never fully got a look at it even through the binoculars but it finally hit a small vehicle sized opening and It hit me I was actually watching a bigfoot. It was feeding on something on the ground I believe wild grapes that had fell out of a tree that had vines in it or maybe acorns. It would occasionally look up and listen. A car went down the highway about a half mile in the distance and it looked up and was canting its head to listen. I believe if the car had turned down the gravel road towards us it would have fled. It was only when the car went quiet a ways down the road it continued to feed. It was very large probably 7 foot plus and very broad shouldered. It elbows wasn't like humans it was pointed and stuck back like a deer's front leg even when relaxed. It had a crown or slight dome on top its head. A dusky charcoal black with silver beginning at the back of the head and a ridge of fur beginning to get thicker there and widening as it came down the back. The hairs in the elbows and down the back of the leg was longer and the stripe of heavier hair down the head and back was silver tipped. It was somewhat pot bellied but not really. The upper body was absolutely massive. I wouldn't hesitate to say the animal weighed 400 lbs in the least. The nose must have been flat because it didn't make but maybe a half inch bump on its face and I couldn't see any ears at that time...The thumb on its had were more chimp like. Higher on the hand and longer. I think it had 5 fingers and there had no hair on the palms. the hairs were more tapered like claws not human fingernails. It only looked across the valley where I was one time and its eyes were brown and animal like large pupils. It hair up to its lower eyes and a wide mouth. Not much in the way or a chin and its forehead was lined deeply. I was using Nikon zoom binoculars that had 7-15x40 power and was able to see a lot of details. I kept wishing for a camera... After viewing it for Id say 15 mins I heard a vocalization very soft from higher on the hill. I never saw what made it and since I only barely caught it couldn't say how it sounded. But the bigfoot looked that way and stood up and made a return sound that almost sounded like too pieces of hard steel rod banged together. Kind of a ping sound and it walked that way. It had no tail and was very broad across the shoulders. I believe these are a unique species and are pure animal. Not in anyway related to humans. However I think their senses like smell and hearing, eyesight are very acute and they have a lot of intelligence thats why people never see them hardly. They dont want to be seen and avoid encounter with man. Never saw one before and never since. But I dont go into the woods before daylight anymore. I wait till I can see. And if mushroom hunting or looking for indian relics I carry a heavy caliber pistol. I wouldnt want the tangle with one of them period. I never told anybody about my sighting. I figured they would think I was nuts. via (Link:
