If it scratched its back on the tree there should be trace physical evidence there...

This sounds to me more like he saw a 'wild man' in the forest. Not a bugfoot.

I dont know what he saw if he saw anything this is just another story and anecdotal is not proof and at this point not evidence.

Check my sink my shower after i get ready to go out i leave hair behind in my case midnight ruby colored.

Of all these stories of seeing BF these people never seem to go look for physical evidence which there of course would be lots of, do i assume they are all idiots and full of bull and know it wasnt BF or just too darn lazy to take the next step in changing the world.

Just glad that it didn't end up in typical American fashion, which is shooting things with a gun.

Why is that typical?   

Typically bigfoot sightings have not ended with a gunshot?

Typically when an American sees a deer, there is no shooting. 

Typically when a hunter is in the woods, with a gun, they do not shoot at things they are not hunting.

I didn't.  And in 1999 at 140 yards in the forest your picture would have been, meh anyways.

Regardless.  1999 phone camera in the dim forest taking a picture of a black object.

Such an original and cultured response.:tu:

What should a hunter do with their legal and licensed firearm do? I know, we'll just throw it at the target.

Damn I must have gotten into the cellphone game late. My first one was in late 2012. Small flip phone.

I have to say, I once had to carry/drag an injured friend half a mile to the car to get them out of the woods, and it was hard work, and I was young back then.  Honestly, if I could shoot a lone BF dead and drag it back to a news outlet, I would, but I strongly doubt I could carry or (way more likely) drag it far, if they are as big and as stinky as legends suggest.  Hell, I think you'd be hard pressed to get the body into a ute without a block and tackle or a fair number of helpers.  There is also the possibility that the BF will not be alone, and you won't make it to the ute (if some of the more bloodthirsty BF folklore is to be believed).

Why would you want to shoot something that you couldn't positively identify? Hell, with my luck if I was stupid enough to shoot it I would find that it was really just an idiot in a monkey suit trying to mess with someone!! If I am not certain what it is AND want to kill it to eat or kill it to protect myself it is safe from me. A beast walking around scratching itself on a tree is not worthy of me killing it. I wouldn't shoot a bear if I wasn't hunting them.

 I'm sure this fella is very popular around the campfire to tell his stories. Very entertaining, very ridiculous.

My personal fave footie fable is then one where Ole Foo is tossing around wild pigs.

I wouldnt shoot anything but consider this and im in the USA if a person shoots and kills a bigfoot ( not that i believe they exist just waxing ) and its learned postmortem that BF is of the genus homo then the shooter is guilty of homicide and perhaps premeditated if he was out hunting BF.

Was that in Australia? If so it might have just been openozy on a hunt.

If you have a dead specimen, you can have it positively identified.

Well if they want to put on their fursona in public, then they have to take their chances.  While the hilarious story about the trans-species guy who dressed as a deer and got shot is satire, it is also a realistic scenario.

Not even if it was hunting you?
