I've never found anything interesting at all. But from that website, some of those would be really cool and some of them would be extremely creepy!

My granpa and brother have both seen this almost human like half hunched over hairy animal with long arms walk across one of our plots right at dark and when they went over to see what kind of tracks there were (never saw any) the smell that still lingered was awfull. Indian legends and some modern day folklore have stories about the "Skunk Ape" florida's version of bigfoot. my granpa used to hunt bears in fla so he knows what a bear looks like and he swears it was defintely not a bear. any people got any skunk ape stories?

Sorry, but I'm notbuying the bigfoot stories for a minute. You mentioned 'legend' and 'folklore'...both synonymous withmade-up stories, myths,and frankly, B.S.

As long as man has settled this continent, and as many people as there are today (many of them hunting)...I would think at least one person would have some HARD evidence of this bigfoot. After all these years (100's), nobody has shot one of these things that keep walking through our green fields???...buthumans get shot all the time walking in the woods.Would somebody pleasefind a body of bigfoot (surely they don't live forever), some skull and bones, a REAL picture or video (NOT of a man dressed in an ape suit), then I'll believe the 'folklore'.

I guess I tend to lean to the disbelief side of things when it comes to bigfoot. I am up here in bigfoot land and would think the same as to someone shooting one. I know that you will never find me telling about this thing I saw! I will be showing it to you. And if some fool is out there dressed like one then it is his fault!

My point exactly! I'll try to have bigfoot mounted for ya, not telling you a story about it.

My folks bought a resturant in milton in the late 50s called bills seafood.We as a collective family have found old brass and wooden steering wheels compasses and diffrent nautical items through our searchs around the area.Unfortanently huricane ivan retrieved most of them back to the blackwater peterson point area.I guess for future hunters to find.

Never seen a bigfoot thank god. But one thing odd i saw in the woods one day while hunting in Georgiana Al was an old dresser mirror leaning up against a pine tree. Just the mirror. Looked like it had been there for a 100 yrs. Still nice and shiny way out in the middle of no where.

Once when I was hunting in Alabama, I started to hear dueling banjoes playing...then I saw Ned Beatty running by....

I stayed up in my tree stand. :moon

One of the guys in our GA Lease has a whole box of arrowheads and shark's teeth he's found. but the only thing I ever found was an old jar near the remains of an old still we found on the property.

This didnt happen to me but I remember a story 10 or so years back where these hunters found a human remains in the woods. The strange thing was that the body was wearing a wet suit, flippers and a snorkel. The area they were hunting was at least 50 miles from any body of water. Turns out that a few years back there had been a forest fire and a helicoptor that was fiting the fire had scooped the guy up out of the water and he had been dumped on the fire.

I had a scary moment once while fishing..I had just caught a 2 pound bass and noticed a black man reading a newspaper but he kept peeking up at me..I had the willys. I only had on shorts cause I usedto be a long distance runner..I got in my truck in drove across the highway to an isolated pond in the middle of the woods.I made a long cast with a spinner bait and guess who is coming down the narrow brushy trail heading toward me..that stocky, glazed eyed black man..I was scaredto death...I whispered "Please God help me." I quickly reeled in my spinning rod ..I charged the man screaming my Karate yells I learned in the service and began whipping my spinner bait in his face asking no questions..The man went backwards into the brush and I got out of Dodge..From then on...I began carrying an equalizer in my tackle box.

Later on under cover stings arrested over 150 different pervs..The 3 nude and close by porn shops were all closed..This was back in the 1980s.

I remember hearing (I wastoo young to hunt at the time) abouttwo of my older brothers out hunting with my dad on a friend's farm in Michigan. They came across the body of the farm's manager who had committed suicide with a rifle shot to the chin. He was still sitting upright when they found him. My brothers were in their teenage yearsback then but they still remember that pretty vividly.

I used to work for an archaeology firm and we found some stone bowls on Eglin AFB which were carbon dated to be about 15,000 years old. There were two of them, upside down, stacked on top of each other and half a meter down. We surveyed every 1.5 meters, going a meter down in lines radiating out in many directions out to 30 meters and NEVER found anything else. That was by far the coolest thing ever, especially since the nearest source for those stones were in North Georgia.
