Bigfoot?

From Sebeka Menagha review Messenger

Strangers in the Night

BY MIKE TRACY

It was Wednesday, July 23. It was getting dark, maybe 9:00 or 10:00 p.m. Kirk Orr was in the driveway at the Bruce Harne residence in rural Staples, watching as Amanda Schluttner drove out of the driveway and down the road. Marietta Harne was in the house taking care of the baby.

Suddenly, something ran out in front of the van, was struck, and pushed itself off the vehicle, and rolled to the side while still standing. Kirk thought he saw Amanda get out of the van and walk around it, but she was still in the van. What had Kirk seen?

The creature ran off into the woods. Amanda returned to the Harne residence, and she, Kirk, and Kirk’s brother, Matt, inspected the dent in the van and the corresponding “hand” print on the hood. Matt grabbed his .30-.30 and shot at the shape of the intruder that appeared along the edge of the tree line across the yard.

The intruder came toward them, so they retreated into the house. They reasoned that if the .30-.30 hadn’t stopped it, they weren’t going to take any chances.

Around back, a ladder was left lying on the ground next to the house. They turned the outside light on, illuminating the yard, and went inside. Marietta had called her sister, Terry Meyer, when she heard the shots.

They said they heard a howl coming from the woods. They went back outside, where they found one of their two dogs cowering in the bushes; the other was so frightened it had soiled itself. The ladder was now up against the house, and they saw a shape up on the roof.

Kirk put the ladder back on the ground, and the creature grabbed an overhanging tree branch, jumped from the roof, and ran off into the woods. They heard howling again, and at times it sounded as if there were more than one creature.

Kirk described the creature as seven feet tall at least, dark brown, hairy, and it had a head “almost like that of a wolf.”

When the Wadena County Sheriff’s Department deputy and the DNR Conservation Officer arrived, they inspected the dented van with the paw print that looked like a hand, and walked down the road and through the wooded area where the sighting first occurred. They told the reporting parties that what they had encountered was probably a bear.

Kirk questioned whether a bear would be running on two legs, or would leave “hand” marks on the van. And he said the howling was unlike anything any of them had ever heard.

When Bruce came home from work the next morning, he found broken branches and flattened brush in the nearby woods. They have heard more howling in the area, but have had no more altercations or sightings.

We attempted to contact the local DNR  Conservation Officer for a comment on this report, but got no response.

Wow! Keep posted what he finds out. With the car hit,30 x 30, and climbing the roof sounds like a sasquatch on angel dust?

Wonder what it would cost to get it mounted. Imagine bigfoot over the fireplace.

Imagine the price you would get for that mount?

Shall we all get together and do a BIGFOOT drive?

Was it a full moon?

Had to be a werewolf. The reason the gun did not kill it was he was not using silver bullets.

And I know werewolves always use ladders to climb on roofs. Did they check, maybe it was doing some repairs....

Should have given bigfoot a hammer and a saw I am sure he knows how to build a nice shelter. Shelter for him 11 months out of the year and a deer stand for you.

maybe we need to put this on the shooting forum. Personaly I do not think 30-30 is the right caliber for Wendigos. Id go for the knock down power of the .300 mag. shot placement is too important when using smaller calibers and when you are filling your pants it is hard to get a good shot so I definetly suggest bigger maybe even a safari gun.

    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.
    • I'll say one thing for Uncle B______ you're always good for a chuckle or------
    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.  
    • My favorite fake news.   Well....   One of my favorites.     She was just exhausted from the heat. (78 deg)   No. No. Wait.   She has pneumonia...   Yup, Yup.....that's it..  
    • That the snow's coming. My crab apple, and the ground below it, is literally loaded with Robin's gorging themselves. Started yesterday and hasn't stopped...I counted 15 at once before they flit around and land on another branch.
