I think that was my friend Louis?

He got lost that day, he was probably just looking to use the phone or wanted something to eat!

I had an encounter on evening about 15 years ago very similar to Starshadow. It was dark and the lawn was illuminated only by the moon's light. I was sitting in the living room reading and something caught my attention. I couldn't believe what was I was seeing...an incredibly tall, wide-shouldered and very hairy creature cross my lawn. I immediately ran to the front door, whipped it open and low and behold our eyes met.

It was my mother-in-law going to her car in the driveway.

Hmmm...Have been wondering the correct procedure to follow if a Bigfoot suddenly appears in the campfire light by the lean-to.

Bang pots together?

Play dead?

Throw on some extra Hawk Vittles?

Do my vaudeville act and scare it away that way?

Bend over and present?

Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Simple, you gotta move over until the lean-to is at capacity.

idea_new.gif First thing I would do is offer it a beer and ask if it has seen any Mountain Lions or Timber Wolves around?

I have never seen anything like a sasquatch. Nor do us bears have any stories about them. I have seen humans covering themselves with hair and walking around at nighttime making strange noises, but there is no such thing as a sasquatch (although DEC personnel come fairly close).

So, hypothetically....who would win in a fight between growly and sasquatch?
not a death match, just a good natured brawl for the charity of their choice.

My money's on the bear. As we can see by his avatar, he's for real.

The trip took three and one-half to four hours every Friday night, but my sister and I didn't mind it at all.
South Kortright is not in the Adirondack Mountains, its just south of Stamford NY which is near Gilboa (By the Catskills) Beautiful country though!

This one was caught stealing a crapper!

FUNNY!!!!!!
That's what I'm talkin' bout!
While we are taking a dose of:"Is it real?"
How about the mountain lion thing?
My vote- NO, No tracks- no pictures- No road Kill= no mountain Lions. period
