Bigfoot?

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?

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.

    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
