What's a nephalim?

Yes, he's scary and I'll be famous
No, he's a misunderstood creature
I'll shoot only if he attacks me
There are some really good theories & lines of thought about this. But, religious discussions aren't allowed here. However, descendants of Cain has been mentioned. One other line of thought is descents of Nephalim. To me, I do believe in the latter.
I have encountered them on several occasions while camping/hunting in remote wilderness areas around the country. Each time I did get a strong sense of something more "angel" like than human or animal. I never felt any danger from them whatsoever. I have heard the stories about BAD bf encounters. But, that hasn't been my experience.
(If they are descendants of Nephalim or some other "divine" creature, it would help explain why there is not much fossil evidence. It would also explain some of their seemingly supernatural abilities. If they are descendants of "CAIN" it could be possible for them to live hundreds if not a thousand years.)
There are a whole lot of us that do KNOW they are out there. (Some people even have mutual interactions with them.) But, we still get mocked & ridiculed by people; so most of us keep our mouth shut about the subject. We are not crazy or dumb hillbillies. Personally, I come from a family of professional hunters. I'm also have a background in Wildlife Biology.

Statistically, dementia is one of the greatest defeatable threats to my loved ones. We currently pay 1000x more managing the disease than we do looking for a cure.
I wouldn't shoot unless I was in fear of my life. As others have said, it might be someone in a suit trying to play a hoax or something.
Another option is to try to capture one and train it to do my laundry. With a pregnant wife, I'm having to do more than I'd like to around the house.

I was a mountain guide in the Northwest for years before moving to Nebraska (don't ask I still don't know why ).
On the numerous occasions when I had encounters with Bigfoot (they don't like the term btw) they were mostly neutral. They aren't well spoken and they don't like jerky. They do have a sense of humor that I found kinda dry. I wouldn't put it past one to lose his temper if you didn't laugh at his jokes. It's sorta like listening to an anti-gun liberal talk about gun laws...your familiar with them but they don't make any sense.
Anyway I think you would have to have some serious ammo just to slow one down. I discovered quite by accident that they are deathly afraid of M&M's and Reeses's Pieces for some reason. So to answer your question:
I would reese for my piece and pump some red M&M's into him, but only if I was having one of those humorless, can't take another Bigmouth..I mean Bigfoot gunlaw...I mean joke

Some pretty funny comments on this thread!
I was stationed at McChord AFB, WA for a few years and did a lot of camping and hiking. What's funny is that during the day it was fun to joke about Bigfoot, but at night, sleeping in a backpacker's tent, all you could think about was Bigfoot coming to rip your arms out of your sockets...
BTW: I'd only shoot if attacked.
I never shoot at big foot. She has just as much right to shop at my local Walmart as any of the other strange beings I see there.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
I wonder how tough a Bigfoot's hide would be? Do they wear tree bark armor? What would be the best ammo?
If you believe what you read, Bigfoot can certainly be dangerous. He throws big rocks at people. He looks dangerous. If he were humanoid, I think he would have taken some opportunity to meet the neighbors by now.
I'll use a line out of the newspapers:
I'll shoot him in the leg! Once crippled, I've got plenty of time to babysit until the officials show up.

you better check your state regulations, in some states he/she is considered an exotic
Shoot Bigfoot In Texas? It's Legal!
Shoot Bigfoot In Texas? It's Legal!"I could never shoot one," he told the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram. "But Bigfoot is like Tony Romo. Either you love him or you hate him. With Bigfoot, either you want to protect him or you want one as a specimen."
All that being said, I do not believe Bigfoot is real. Personally, I'm more concerned with yotes, wolves, bears, etc, wile I'm camping. A giant ape is the furthest thing from my mind.
My pet, just like Harry and the Hendersons.
