Revisited: the man who 'shot two Bigfoots'

A reality TV Bigfoot hunter made headlines a few years back after claiming to have killed two of the creatures.
Justin Smeja's remarkable story came to light after he appeared on reality TV show '10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty' which saw nine teams compete to win a large cash prize in exchange for incontrovertible evidence of the elusive hominid.

"I've shot and killed two of them," he told the show's hosts. "I've done everything I can do to try to prove that I'm telling the truth. All I can do now is try to go get another one."

In later interviews he elaborated on the incident, insisting that he had in fact killed one adult and one juvenile Bigfoot while out bear hunting in the Sierra mountains with one of his friends.

The pair allegedly encountered the adult creature, which was around 8ft tall, in a meadow.
After felling it with a single shot, they noticed that a juvenile had been accompanying it.

Smeja shot that too.

"I haven't found a reasonable explanation for what happened," he said. "I haven't found any sort of way to prove that I'm telling the truth."

You can watch Smeja recalling the entire encounter in the video below.

If it was a person in suit wouldn't they have been yelling.. "Don't shoot, don't shoot!" It makes no sense that neither of them did that. I can't imagine that with frozen ground they could have dug deep....is it possible an animal dragged off whatever carcass was there? Do bears lift up their front paws when on hind legs before attacking? I don't know how bears attack. Could that be the "arms over his head" bit?

  the other day i grabbed at redbox a movie called " the man who killed hitler then killed bigfoot" i like sam Elliott but geez what a artsy farty garbage dump of a film, ( why i didnt say "soiler alert" this thing went past spiled long ago ) it wasnt so much a campy B flick as a old man dealing with um being an old man, anyway, if you like that bigfoot body recovery bs you might enjoy the 5 mins or so that this flick has anything to do with bigfoot,

  I didn't bother with any explanations, as most people here know my stance,,,You may have misunderstood my intentions, which were to show my great disdain for all things Bigfoot, so no, I wouldn't be interested in a movie so bad that it's unheard of.

Your disdane for bigfoot didnt keep you out of the thread, Since i dont know you, cant recall ever seeing a post from you before the one you made about a bigfoot body recovery team and since there are all kinds of people here with all kinds of wild outlansmdish thoughts i wouldnt know if you were being sarcastic ( hopefully ) or serious ( sad if you believe there is a BBRT ) i made my remark about a movie that anyone who would believe in a BBRT  might like or a person like me would grasp my wrey humor of it would get it that it worked both ways,

 We have crossed paths before, and we have always argued from the same side. A couple of years ago, I decreased posting on all threads, and especially here, as I have found it to be a waste of time. A spirited debate is one thing, but when people completely ignore facts and common sense, and instead insist on clinging to the outlandish fabrications associated with this subject, there is no debate. I still peruse the site occasionally, and will jump in once in a while, but I just don't see the point in an 'exercise in futility'.
