OBSERVED: I was in military stationed Ft. Stewart Ga we were conducting wargames my squad was moving through the woods when we started to hear a very low growl then a hi pitched scream as soon as we came out of the woodline to the south of my squad we saw what we thought was an an opposing force we were about 250 feet from the animal so be again to close in on it we called out twice to it and again we heard the growl it then stood up and we realized that it wasn't human it was between 7 and 8 foot tall and realizing that we were in danger we began to back away at this point it began throw rocks toward us and then took off there was about 300ft between it and the wood line and it took it about 20 seconds to make the distance the rest of the night we heard strange sounds from the woodline from what thought was multiple creatures

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Ken Johnson:

The witness to this encounter now lives in another state, but spoke in great detail as he described the encounter he had while training in the military at Fort Stewart. I can add the following details to his report after talking to him:

The being had long, reddish-colored hair that appeared around four inches long, and matted. It moved on two legs, and had arms that were longer than a man's, that came about to the animal's knees. It moved off in a slow jog, taking what the witness described as "twice the normal step a man would take" as it headed for the treeline.

The animal emitted what the witness described as "a low, feel-it type of growl", which lasted close to thirty seconds.

The witness reported that he believed the animal's height to be between seven to eight feet tall, when he compared it at the time to nearby trees.

Additionally, the witness stated that back at camp that night he kept hearing activity coming from the woods that surrounded the camp. He heard sticks breaking, wood-on-wood sounds, something splashing in water, and what sounded like footsteps coming from the woods--first on one side of the camp, then the other. The noises lasted for four to five hours.

The witness told me that when he considers what it was he believes he saw, he could not see a man being that tall or moving that quickly, and that the only thing he could think of that it could be, was a bigfoot.

“It moved on two legs, and had arms that were longer than a man’s, that came about to the animal’s knees. It moved off in a slow jog, taking what the witness described as “twice the normal step a man would take” as it headed for the treeline. “

Sounds like a 1st SGT.

Heh. I was going to say something similar, only was going to say it was a Ranger in a ghillie suit.

I spent a lot of time in the swamps in and around Stewart in my Rangering days, long ago. Never saw any sasquatches or any weird critters, and I reckon that I was a lot quieter than most folks 'on maneuvers' down there.

There were several places that are pretty 'primeval' though.

Why weren't any of the others described as "we" interviewed? I wouldn't deny that this persons brain caused him to see and hear something. The question is, did anyone with him see, or hear anything?

I’m cursed with a logical scientific mind. Animals like Sasquatch are scientifically impossible. Not that they couldn’t exist, but that if they existed, there would be a wealth of bones and other evidence left behind from their existence.

It stands to reason that if there is a Sasquatch, it had a mother who bore it and a father to sire it. That would mean an extended family. Hundreds. Thousands. Yet we find nothing of skeletal remains of these huge man beasts.

The lack of evidenciary forensic matter left behind from dead Sasquatch being completely absent, it stands to reason they cannot exist or have existed. Anybody of intelligence who gives this 30 honest seconds of thought will quickly come to that conclusion.

The ones who just have to believe this crap will have every ready made excuse in the book. “The skull and bones are eaten by other animals”. Yada.

Whatever.

Sasquatch do not exist and never have existed. There is a complete absence of any evidence.

Today, with the advent of camera phones which everyone owns, I won’t accept anything less than photographic documentary evidence for bigfoot men, Nessie monsters, ghosts, ET UFOs, yada.

Even then, I refuse to believe what I see when photoshop is so prevalent, when even youtube videos can be doctored to this level of realism:

Did they shoot it?
If not, why not?

A Marine squad would have shot it, skinned it, eaten the good parts, flavored with Tabasco, sold the rest to some passing Doggies, swearing it was pork roast, and that it had stumbled into camp and dropped dead of a heart attack, on the soul of Chesty Puller.
They would have then stretched the hide, hair side down, over the hood of a Deuce and a half and used the brain to tan it and turn it into a company trophy...

Until some captain came along and told them to get rid of it...

That would be an interesting story indeed, if the entire squad came forward with their versions of this fairytale.

By that same argument dear and raccoons are also mythical creatures- otherwise you would see their bones laying all over the place

I found a deer skeleton in the woods once. So the issue raised does have merit.

Ever been hunting or hiking or camping? You don’t find many bones in the woods unless it is a recent kill. In all the years I’ve been out in the woods, and it’s been many, I’ve only seen remains of maybe 4-5 animals.

Take a walk in the real wilderness sometime, you may find that your scientific logic isn’t what you think it is.

I’m not trying to berate you but you are making an assumption based on incorrect information.

On that note, I’ve seen things in the wilderness that to this day I cannot explain. Don’t be so quick to discount the possibility that something large might exist in the woods.

With all that being said however, I would like to see some real physical evidence beyond foot prints and pictures.

I'm generally very, very skeptical as well, but don't rule the extremely remote possibility out altogether, although I doubt Ft. Stewart, GA a likely location.

Depending on what one believes or theorizes sasquatch could be, there is evidence that homo erectus and homo neandertalis both buried their dead.

There is also the curious case of Ishi who died less than a hundred years ago...

I have to go out and pick up deer bones out of the yard all the time. Sometimes I fill and entire grocery bag. You can’t find their bones because my dogs are dragging them all to my yard.

I do have a nice collection of antlers.

I am a country bumpkin mountain boy.

I chew bark and sap offa trees and suck sugar out of tall pasture grasses.

There are deer here even in my front yard; nary a bone is found anywhere in the mountains coz the coyotes and wolf packs eat`em up, bones n` all. Only animal bones I ever found in 50 years of hunting and hiking was a carcasse of a bobcat that had fallen down into a vertical cave.

Experience is the best teacher,

not diaphanous daydreamed-up ludicrous theories from cloud 9 dwellers who never got their pinky hands grimy black in the woods.

The “where is the bones?” argument is not strong enough to disprove their existence.

Washington has an unknown number of grizzly bears – probably less than 40, yet people have only caught glimpses of them, and only one photo exist (a cell phone photo). And WA grizzly bones have never been found. With the “where are the bones doubters” the WA grizzly existence is an impossibility.

And here in Washington State we have a black bear population of over 45,000, yet I challenge anyone to go out and find me naturally killed bear bones or even cougar. You can spend every day of the year on your search and the chances of you finding them are next to nil. How much smaller would those chances be if the population was less than 300? Heck I have been on many deer hunting trips into the Cascades, where I would have a hard time proving deer exist.

Anyway, that is my take on this “bones” argument. I’m not a 100% believer in Bigfoot, but I still give the possibility a chance. There are too many credible witnesses to totally discount it.
I do however think the first and most important rule for those who have an encounter with them or evidence they leave behind is to eliminate ALL other possibilities before claiming its Bigfoot. For every one credible sounding report you can find a dozen that could have other explanations.

Same here.

I did see lots of gators, snakes, and wild boar, though.

And skeeters. Lots and lots of skeeters.

Pretty much right on with that. I’ve been hiking, hunting, camping, and exploring areas that most people never get near for about 25 years.

I’ve been in the woods around the boundary waters, mountains in Colorado, wilds of West Virginia, Georgia, and others.

thats odd

I have an acre in between two fields

Deer make their home here, I see them by the hundreds. Raccoons are a constant thought at night and the chief reason we police the area for any food or garbage before nightfall

I have yet to see one bone in 15 years

Now you twist your argument because you can not defind your position

You said no sasquatch exist because we never find bones- I said by that same argument deer and raccons dont exist either because I’ve never seen a deer skeleton.

I am not saying you are wrong- I dont believe they exist either - only your argument is defective

I’m not arguing, I’m commenting.

I guess I need to go back and see what you are responding to, right now I’m not even commenting, I’m just confused. I don’t remember having a position in the argument.

Although, I’m pretty sure sasquatch exist, I think I’ve seen at least on on the threads today.
