View Poll Results: Would you shoot BIGFOOT?
- 68. You may not vote on this poll
I would shoot for science sake.
I would shoot only with a camera.
I would follow it back to its den and try to make contact.
This conversation is over do to my job working in a mental institution
There is no such thing as Bigfoot!
Why are we talking about Bigfoot on a concealed carry forum?

I'm really getting into this show. Some spooky things have happened on this show. A few people in the office watch it and we really like it.
It has generated a few questions I have for people here in the office
Hypotically would you shoot a Sasquatch aka Bigfoot aka Skundum aka Skunk Ape if you ran across one for the sake of Science?

All the skeptics will believe is a body...I'd drag it into the 6pm news cast and air it on live TV :-)

Glad to see I'm in the 60% that wonder why we are even talking about bigfoot on a concealed carry forum. LOL
No--I wouldn't shoot it. Let the scientists do their own work---the government pays them a fortune to dawdle all day and the best equipment to study ketchup.

What a funny topic. The first time I ever heard about Bigfoot, me and this other kid got in one of the farm trucks with our 30-30s and went out to hunt one. It's dark out and we're idling across about 400 acres of pasture and timber. I guess we thought we'd see one in the headlights... well, we both got spooked thinking about it but weren't going to say a thing. Just quiet........
And then my uncle got on the radio to ask where we were (back in the days when all the trucks had a CB) - and we didn't know the volume was all the way up.
We about jumped out of the truck!
My Bigfoot hunting career ended right then.

Why are we talking about this here? Because if one attacked me I would defend myself. Do they exist? Maybe, whether they exist or not I carry in the hills in case any wild animal or ferrel human decides to attack me.

I watch MonsterQuest. I like the one about Champ (Lake Champlain Monster) because most of the filming was done where I grew up.
I've actually thought about that before. If you ever saw something like Bigfoot, you'd have to produce a body for anyone to believe you. Pictures and video can be altered. A living or dead specimen, not so much.

I wouldn't shoot him....I don't have a space big enough on the wall to mount him, after he comes back from the taxidermy!

my unit had a similar discussion in iraq. only we were trying to get approval for a sniper mission to track and kill one of the puma's in our sector that command said didn't exist.(even with UAV footage, pics through the LRASSS, and personal pictures.) i'd shoot it and call one of the reporters that seemed to spend alot of time with my unit both in iraq and after we got back.

Where's the option for "If I were starving in a blizzard?" Other wise, if I felt threatened by it. That said, I'd probably be pretty easy to make feel threatened if I saw a freakin' bigfoot.

Nahh, Id let him go and then track him back to his place. Having exclusive photo access to BF should earn me a small fortune.
Maybe he's a shooter himself and into guns. How many of you would accept BF as a member of DC?
Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
