Bigfoot season?

18 posts in this topic

While headed to the cabin this weekend, my wife was telling me about the "Bigfoot" corpse that was discovered in Georgia. Our conversation took a few turns but one of the questions I would like to submit here. If a hunter or any one else shot & killed a Bigfoot in Minnesota, would there be any sort of penalty? Would it be considered a person or an animal (what kind)?

Quite the story...I see it is from 2001. Guess the real truth has not come out yet.

actually it says it was written in 1970 then put into the bigfoot magazine in 2001.

As much nonsense as this story could be, personally I kinda believe it.

Funny thing is I was camping out at whiteface a couple weeks ago with some buddies. We were out in the pitch black of night and hear this loud funny noise and something huge went crashing through the woods close enough to us to make on of my friends scream and take off running. I kinda laughed assuming it could of been a deer, moose, or even a black bear. I said to my buddy that ran and said "it was probably just bigfoot, he's around here somewhere" He didn't think it was as funny as I did.

Also on the bigfoot stories, I have a different buddy who is a pretty serious person. He was up in the boundry waters canoeing with his dad. They were way up in the BW and hadn't seen another person in days. After a rainy night they left to go down about a 1 mile portage. He told me they were walking and saw what looked like a footprints from a human but huge. He wears size 14 boots and told me that his boot fit in this human like print. They kept going and suddenly saw 3 sets of prints but the others were smaller. He realized they forgot something at the previous landing and ran back. Going back he saw that all 3 tracks had circled around and started following them stepping on their tracks. He got what he needed rushed to the next lake and went on continuing their trip. still not seeing anyone for a few more days. He told me this story once and his dad confirmed it. Neither of them are people that would [PoorWordUsage] about this so I believe them. He says he doesn't like to even tell the story because it freaks him out to think about it.

I'm a bigfoot believer and I think if they could be anywhere, northern Minnesota is where they would be.

There are some pretty serious "cryptozoologists" out there who want to believe. Unfortunately there tactics are a lot like ghost hunting. You have some scientific data that you don't know how to interpret and don't ask and assume that it points to bigfoot. Like EM fields and cold spots for ghosts. These things may be strange our outliers in your sample field, but they don't point to their conclusions.

Remember, human memory is terribly fallible. This is why anecdotal evidence (the "I saw it, so it is real.") is not acceptable to many skeptics. I vividly remember things that never happened. It is usually because I combine several memories together and then the rest gets filled in by people or stories I have heard on television or radio. Did you ever wonder why aliens all look the same, but only after the popular images were seen by millions?

I am skeptical bigfoot exists, but it isn't hurting anyone to look for it. As long as it doesn't lead to the "government conspiracy" line or they try and endanger people or bilk money from them.

So.. back to the point of the original post. Go ahead and shoot, but remember to yell out, "It is coming right for us!"

Did anybody read the news reports of a wild hog in Detroit Lakes earlier this week? Later is was shot by a resident and it turned out to be a pot bellied pig, not a wild hog. (DNR was relieved, they were worried about another invasive species.) But the link to this thread is this: in the article, the government rep (DNR I think) had stated that it was legal to shoot the supposed wild hog becasue it wasn't specifically protected and/or that species doesn't have an established season, therefore if you apply the same reasoning, shooting Bigfoot must be legal. Unless we can get the state legislature to list it as endangered.....

People have actually tried to get them listed so that they don't get killed by us rednecks. I don't want to link to potentially circumspect sites, but do a quick google search and you will see it happened earlier last year in Canada.

I don't think it ever actually made it through though.

i personally dont believe there are big foots around im more of a SHOW ME and ill believe. But it does get you thinking of how much we dont know about this world. simple things such as wisconsin all of a sudden saying they misjudged the bear count by almost half saying there are twice as many bears. How about the finding of all those Gorillas in AFRICA that had never been seen before. I believe our next great finds will be from the ocean though seeing as most of it is vast and uncharted territory. Then you get to thinking our world hasnt even been explored fully how about other planets. very interesting. I have never seen ghosts and dont want to. But id rather see ghost hunters than someone trying to find chupacabra, and bigfoot

I spend alot of time doing the photography thing here in Hibbing(Carey Lake area) and a co-worker mentioned if I've run into "the bigfoot" out there yet....Wot cry.....I told him I've spent years out there and never came across anything remotely close to anything the size of an overstuffed gorrila grin....anyways he said a couple years ago a team of "bigfoot" hunters flew into Hibbing and set up surveillance devices to try and find a bigfoot!.....well..the same guy"Biscardi"...(the guy on the news recently involved with the "georgia Hoax Bigfoot") was in Hibbing looking for the hibbing(Carey Lake) big foot.....Don't think they ever found it though grin....here's a site of the Hibbing bigfoot search team and results from a couple years ago http://www.searchingforbigfoot.com/Minnesota_August_2006 apparently Hibbing has a bigfoot in it's woods grin

    • Lol. Wasn't fired. Just retired. Keep trying JV.........    
    • We can say we were there anyway.
    • Hey Push nice to see you used D2E.  Sorry about your mod badge.  I'm pretty far from liberal but if it helps you wipe away the tears feel free.  Maybe next time you won't sit out the election.     #rentfree   For those opinions that matter here on this subject I do hope that the futures deals are not like this one.  However it is nice to see a politician actually do what he said he was going to do even though I may not agree with the solution to the problem.  
    • I read you should freeze your venny for 60 days so you kill any organisms.  Looks like I will be waiting a little bit.  I will have to try something else.  Wheres your favorite place to purchase cures and seasonings?  thanks again.   
    • CCG here is an old tsb.  Not for your year but it's the same smoke and mirrors.   #PIP4574M: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update

      Subject: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update

      Models: 2007 Buick Rainier

      2007-2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Trail Blazer
      2007-2008 GMC Envoy, Sierra, Yukon
      2008 Pontiac G8
      2007-2008 Saab 97x
      with a 5.3L or 6.0L Aluminum Block V8 Engine
      and AFM (Active Fuel Management)
      RPOs LC9, LH6, L76, or LFA


      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      This PI was superseded to include revise the affected RPO codes, specify that this is for Aluminum Block Engines only, update models and provide a general update on the status of this investigation in step 5. Please discard PIP4574M.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

      Condition/Concern:
      Some customers may complain that their vehicle has been using approximately 1 quart of oil every 500-1,000 miles. In most cases, the customer will advise that this did not start until the engineaccumulated approximately 30,000 miles or more. In some cases, the customer may note that this is more apparent when driving at highway speed. In rare instances, a SES light and engine misfire may be encountered with a P0300 DTC.

      Upon inspection, an oil fouled spark plug(s) may be noted. In most cases, static compression and cylinder leakage testing will appear normal. Excessive oil may or may not be found in the intake manifold.

      In most cases, this is the result of stuck oil control rings. Generally, the stuck oil control rings are the result of excessive oil on the cylinder walls. The excessive oil can come from the PCV system and/or the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan.

      Recommendation/Instructions:
      If this concern is encountered, follow the steps below:

      Visually inspect the entire engine and the underside of the vehicle for any evidence of oil leaks and repair them as necessary.
      Inspect the fresh air hose/pipe that is attached to the RF (passenger side) valve cover and all related connections for restrictions, such as plastic casting flash or a pinched hose, and repair as necessary. A restriction in this area may cause excessive crankcase vacuum and oilconsumption through the PCV vacuum tube.
      If the truck has an engine misfire and a spark plug that is obviously oilfouled, skip to step 4 since this proves that it has an obvious oilconsumption concern. If not, perform an oil consumption test as outlined in the latest version of oil consumption of 01-06-01-011 to verify the concern before proceeding to step 4. Allow the vehicle to sit on a level surface with the engine off for at least 10 minutes to allow the entire engine to drain back to the oil pan before checking the engine oillevel and adding oil. Compare the oil consumption test results to one of the scenarios below to determine further direction:
      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles and no low oil light has been experienced, no repairs should be performed as this should be considered acceptable oil consumption as outlined in the latest version of 01-06-01-011.

      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles but the customer has experienced a low oil light, refer to the latest version of PIP3959 for a potential low oil light sensor concern.

      • If the dealership verifies that oil consumption is More than 1 quart every 2,000 miles, perform the steps below as necessary:

      Determine if the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system by removing the intake manifold and measuring how much oil can be poured out of the throttle body opening with the throttle bodyremoved. It is normal to get a couple of teaspoons of oil out of the intake. If the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system, several ounces of oil will be measured, many times as much as a 1/4-1/2 quart.
      • If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system, go to step 5.

      • If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system, inspect the PCV baffle as outlined in the rest of Step 4 below:

      4a. Remove the LH (driver's side) valve cover and inspect the PCV baffle drain holes shown below to see if they are plugged with hardened oil deposits. If they are plugged, replace the valve cover, ensure that the customer is changing their oil according to the maintenance schedule in their owner's manual, and re-evaluate the concern. Generally, this would not be a concern until several thousand miles have accumulated.

      4b. With the LH (driver's side) valve cover removed, inspect the PCV baffle to ensure that it is properly sealed to the valve cover by flipping it over and adding a little oil to the corner of the valve cover as shown below. The oil should stay in place as shown on the 2 outer valve coversbelow. If the oil drains into the PCV baffle as pointed out on the middle valve cover below, replace the valve cover. Generally, if this is the cause of the concern, it would have been present early in the life of the vehicle or shortly after valve cover replacement.


      Important: If Step 4a or 4b led to valve cover replacement, perform Step 4b again on the replacement valve cover before installing it.


      • 4c. If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system but the valve cover passed the tests outlined above, the engine may have an over-aggressive lifter that is causing the oil ingestion through the PCV system. Sometimes the lifter may be doing this intermittently so it is not always possible to isolate one by inspecting the lifter flow with the driver's valve cover removed. As a result, it is suggested to replace all 8 of the left/driver bank lifters due to the oil in the intake and re-evaluate the oil consumption concern. The right/passenger side lifters should not cause oil in the intake so there is no need to replace them. If the vehicle returns with excessive oil consumption but is no longer ingesting oil through the PCV system, it most likely has stuck oilcontrol rings as outlined in Step 5.

      If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system and there are no obvious valve seal concerns, this is most likely the result of the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan spraying oil on the bottom of the cylinders when active fuel management is on. This may eventually cause the oil control rings to stick and increase the rate of oilconsumption. As outlined in the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D), a related bulletin is going to be released to repair this by cleaning the oil control rings and installing a shield over the AFM pressure relief valve. This bulletin was scheduled for a July 2010 release but the bulletin is still going through the final stages of the release process. At this time, it is on track for a mid-August release date. Once released, you will be able to find the new bulletin in the New Bulletins Section of Service Information and this PI will be updated to include the bulletin number as well.
      If you would like to view the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D) mentioned above, you can find it by following this path:

      • Go to the GM Training page. (If necessary, there is a link to this page at GM Global Connect "Dealerworld")

      • Enter your Training Person ID and Password.

      • Click the "Service Know-How/TECHAssist" Link

      • Click the "Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the "Searchable Streaming Video" Link

      • Click the "10210.07D - July 2010 Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the 9th Link down for High Oil Consumption

      Notice: Piston and Ring sets should no longer be replaced for this concern unless it is absolutely necessary. If stuck oil control rings are found and you decide to replace all 8 pistons and all 8 piston ring sets, we DO NOT recommend honing or deglazing the cylinder walls due to the great variation between equipment, machine shops, and technicians performing these repairs. This is because it is generally unnecessary and can induce unnecessary cylinder wall and/or piston ring damage if it is done incorrectly or not cleaned thoroughly. The cylinder walls just need to be cleaned thoroughly with brake cleaner before the new piston and ring sets are installed. At this time, you may also experience a back order situation if you order new pistons and rings.
