> (Note: I watched a documentary about bigfoot and I remember an incidentencounter with two Indians hunting deer in Nevada. One of the Indians was
stalking a deer when all of a sudden Bigfoot walked up a little ways from
where he was sitting. He said bigfoot reached down and fumbled with
something on the ground and seemed unaware he was watching him. He said
then bigfoot stood up and looked right at him. He said he took his rifle,
aimed and fired the bolt action deer rife directly into bigfoot. He said he
emptied all the rounds and bigfoot just stood there. Stared at him a few
minutes longer and left. He said he took off looking for his friend and
when he found him told him what happened. He and his friend went back to
the spot where he allegedly shot bigfoot. His friend looked around and
asked him how many rounds did you shoot? Well, the Indian said I emptied
the entire clip. His friend then bent down and picked up the shells on the
ground. He said these rounds haven't been fired. The Indian said he was
flabbergasted, because in his mind he fired and ejected all the rounds,
each time he fired a round he ejected it, but, evidence proved to him not a
bullet was fired...Dex)

> MICHAL RETURNS TO WOODS TO HUNT MONSTER
> Iron Bridge � Shooting the Creature
> Michael returns to the woods to hunt the monster that's haunted him
> By Stephen Wagner, About.com
> Beginning back in 2007, Michael L. and some of his friends have had
Iron Bridge, Ontario, Canada. In this third encounter (read about
encounters one and two), their experiences go way beyond anything they
could have imagined... because this time they took weapons. The results of
this encounter, however, if true, might lend evidence to the theory that
Sasquatch might not be an animal as we define the term, but something else,
possibly from somewhere else. This story does stretch credulity (which is a
characteristic of high-strangeness experiences), but Michael swears to me
that it is true. This is Michael's continuing story....
>terrifying on my property, which is located about 30-40 kilometers
> TWO YEARS AGO, my friends Joe, Adam and I encountered something
northeast of the town of Iron Bridge, Ontario. Last year, during the
summer, I encountered the creature again. Only this time I was alone and
had no way of proving anything to anyone. The only proof that I had were
the regular nightmares that I experienced in the weeks following.

Marie at about seven in the morning on a Monday, so there was no customs
traffic to deal with, and the customs officer was nice enough to wave us on
through without checking my vehicle. (I did have to pull over to have them
inspect my Ruger 10/22 and my Mossberg 500B and fill out tons of paperwork,
but that's unrelated to the story.)

I then got to work on my Ruger 10/22. I removed the stock and replaced it
with a bullpup design that I had purchased off the internet (bullpup
meaning that the magazine is located behind the trigger group, giving you a
compact weapon with the same barrel length). I loaded a few 20-round
magazines with high-velocity "yellow jacket" ammunition and set everything

damned hot day, and I didn't make it any cooler by rolling the Rhino
through the thick trails at 5 mph. By five in the evening, we found a nice
shaded area, had dinner and suited up to head back to camp. I drove a bit
faster on the return trip, but I still kept my 10/22 "Spray n' Pray" aiming
out of the driver's side door.

were getting closer. I could literally smell my prey.

Murphy's Law states that "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong." That
applied to our situation quite nicely. As I was just orienting my body to
get my head and barrel over the top of the ditch, I heard gunfire behind me
and heard that horrible whiny, clicking scream again. I got my head above
the trench to watch this creature get hit with four more hollow-points in
the chest before dropping to a heap on the ground.

started getting back up! I fired two more shots into the head of the
creature while walking forward. The stench, at this point, would have made
me vomit if my adrenaline levels weren't so high. It slumped over again and
I walked up to it with my shotgun shouldered and ready to fire again. I
kicked its shoulder and it rolled over on its back.

> I went into a rage, he hold me. I screamed, I swore and fired all fourslugs into the creature's face. After spending the rest of my magazine, I
continued to dry-fire and attempt to pump another cartridge into the
chamber. Realizing that I had no more ammunition, I did something that
terrifies my friends and is told around campfires to this day. I calmly
walked up as the creature as it was trying to roll over back onto its
stomach to push itself up off the ground and kicked it, hard, with my
steel-toed boot. It rolled back over to its back and I began beating it
relentlessly with the butt end of my shotgun. I then pulled my 13-inch
combat knife from my holster and slit its throat. I picked up my shotgun
off the ground and walked over to Dave and Joe as if nothing had happened.
I then asked Dave for the 10/22, asked him how many rounds it had left in
it. Turned around and fired all twenty rounds, from the hip, into the body
of this creature. I tossed the 10/22 back to Dave so he could put a fresh
magazine in. I loaded my last three slugs. Then we waited.

on it. It had taken between 40-60 .22 hollow-point rounds, seven .410
shells to the head and face, a kick to the face, a brutal attack with the
butt end of a shotgun and then having it's throat cut. But it started
getting right back up. I didn't even bother readying the shotgun. Three
more rounds weren't going to do anything but stun this thing. I don't even
think a minigun mounted on a helicopter could've kept it down. Dave fired
the rest of a magazine at it, and it barely flinched.
