MY BIGFOOT STORY!
OMG! Saturday, as part of the Kinzua Bridge festival they held a "Bigfoot calling contest". I'm not really a believer of Bigfoot, and was busy Saturday, so I did not attend.
But my girlfriend and I did attend the Bridge festival on Sunday Afternoon. As we were headed back to Bradford in the late afternoon, I got a glimpse of what looked like two large, dark silhouettes in the forest.
I was able to stop the car and get the following amazing photos! They seemed to be heading in the direction of the Kinzua Bridge .... in the direction of the Bigfoot calls the day before!
The larger one seemed to be about 6 1/2- 7 feet tall and the second one was about 5 1/2- 6 feet tall.
We were not sure WHAT they were, but we were both certain they were NOT two bears walking on their rear legs!
Like I said before, before this sighting, I never believed in Bigfoot. I'm still not sure what we saw.
I'll let these photos speak for themselves!
The photos were not altered in any way at all besides me shrinking them to fit on the page, and adding text to the very first one.
Somebody suggested it might be two people in a ghillie suit. It would be VERY dangerous for ANYBODY to go through the woods in McKean county in a ghillie suit.
There are many people who would shoot at a bigfoot. Just to be the first in the world to shoot one.
These two "creatures" seemed to be a dark black, and the texture, as you can see in the photos, seems to be more of a "matted fur or hair", rather than a mesh net woven with camo or dark green material. I've seen enough ghillie suits to know what they look like.
And the taller one was about 7 foot tall and quite hefty.
Also somebody suggested these might be bears. These were defiantly not bears! I have never seen a bear walk any distance through the woods on their hind legs. Neither of these would fit the silhouette of a bear on his hind legs. They both had more of a "human body" shape, only much bigger.
Look closely at the last photo where it was turned and walking away from me. You can clearly see it is long hair or fur.
Next somebody asked why I didn't go and get closer photos! Of course! I should have ran right up to them for close ups! Why didn't I think of that?
Actually all these shots were taken from the road. And from the safety of our car. Although they were big enough to crush the little Prius I was in!
I would have taken a close up of their faces had I gotten close enough.
You can see from my first photo how far away we were from them. I'm guessing about 200 yards or so?
I believe in photos 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 they are facing us. In photos 9 and 10 they are turned away.
Before seeing these I never believed in Bigfoot. And I thought the "Bigfoot Calling Contest" was somewhat funny, or that it was "tongue-in-cheek". UNTIL I saw this pair in the woods!
Somebody asked me for more detail, so here is as truthful and accurate a description of our "encounter" that I can come up with. I'll choose my words carefully.
As I stated, there was a "Bigfoot Calling Contest" at the Kinzua Bridge Festival on Saturday September 21st 2013 in the afternoon (3pm perhaps?).
On Sunday September 22nd, my girlfriend and I were leaving the Kinzua Bridge State Park at approximately 4:30 PM.
We were driving north (not sure of the road name) on the road that passes the park. About 4 or 5 miles north, I spotted out of the corner of my eye, something dark in the woods that looked like the shape of a "bigfoot or yeti".
Then I stopped the car in the road. I then determined there were two "creatures". One larger and one a bit smaller. I took photos out of the window, and slowly advanced the car forward for a better view through the trees and some brush along the road.
At first they seemed to be moving toward us, and then they appeared to turn and head away at a slow pace.
There were two distinct creatures and the space between them varied at times, but one appeared to follow the other.
We were on a narrow road and there was no shoulder or the shoulder was wet and soft, and we could not pull off. Soon there was too much brush and trees between us and the "creatures".
There were more cars trying to pass us, so we finally drove off and headed home.
I am not one who would believe in Bigfoot or Yeti's. I only believe what I see or can prove. I am not sure to this day what I saw there in the woods. They were very dark. I would say black. And it appeared it was long hair. I'm sure they were not black bears walking on their hind legs. They never seemed wobbly or unstable.
Sombody asked if I saw any tracks around the spot. No, the reason is, it was in a tall open woods with a leaf/moss ground cover and nothing would leave tracks in that. And, I'll leave that for the "experts" trained in Bigfoot research.
It's like this. I see reporting Bigfoot sitings just like those who report seeing UFO's.
One might say they saw a "UFO" if they have reason to believe what they saw was not an airplane, helicopter, hot air balloon, or a dirigible.
What they saw MAY actually have been something man made, but they just can't identify it as such.
Having said that, what I saw was two dark "creatures" that seemed to move slowly. They could have been many things *living or otherwise*, besides a Bigfoot. Who knows. All I can say is I have no idea what they were and they *looked similar to* a Bigfoot or Yeti.
My title "calling bigfoot really works" was somewhat tongue-in-cheek since 1. I'm not entirely sure they were bigfoots, and 2. I'm not sure they were responding to the calls the day before.
When I saw them last, they did appear to be walking toward the Kinzua Bridge State Park where the Bigfoot calling contest was held. Hence, the name of this thread. They were still 4 or 5 miles away and who knows how far bigfoots can hear?
I simply showed photos I took and told what they looked like to me. I don't really want to be associated with everybody who has seen a bigfoot, if you get my drift!
Who knows. They MAY have been a couple dumb guys in Bigfoot suits for all I know.
I guess my advice to anybody who would shoot at a Bigfoot, would be to shoot them in the a$$ so as not to kill them, just in-case they are humans in Bigfoot suits!
