Bigfoot: Warning in the Woods
I had a chance to interview a Bigfooter who runs a Facebook group I follow--a great group of science-minded, nature-loving, curious people who want to know more about Bigfoot and his ways. The group is called Texas Unified Natural Research I highly suggest you join this group and the ongoing discussion and postings about Bigfoot.
Brandon Garrett and his father, Bob, are both from Texas where they enjoy forays into the swamps and woods looking for encounters. They have had many and it makes them seek more interactions to understand these people called Bigfoot. I wouldn't classify them as Bigfoot hunters, but Bigfoot encounter seekers.
This particular night 10 days ago, they went out after dark to check things out, a regular routine thing they do as a father and son. They trekked onto a forest road that leads to a campground for hunters when it's hunting season. They parked near the gate and then walked the road where there is a lot of Bigfoot activity.
They decided to go down the road and place a camcorder to run while they walked away. This was about 9:30 to 10:00 at night. There was no one there, almost never anyone there--an extremely remote area not well known in the least. They were away from the camera for about 3 hours.
They approached the camera, expecting to go to another location near the water since the woods were quiet. They saw a spider spinning a web and they wanted to videotape it. Brandon began to film the spider and heard a stick landing nearby and thought his father had kicked or threw it and his dad started calling out in pain.
His father saw it flying from behind Brandon's head as he filmed and then it hit Bob in the arm. It caused immediate pain, swelling, bruising and bleeding.
As they took off, they stopped because they heard hollers and realized there were more than one Bigfoot in the woods.
What we learn from this is that Bigfoot was intending to toss a stick between the two of them and scare them off, but Bob was hit by the stick. It did its job of scaring them off without having an interaction. We can all agree Bigfoot is big enough to do serious damage, but he would rather not.
