Dumb things bigfoot hunters do.
I used to belong to a group of bigfoot hunters. I never saw bigfoot...don't even think he was around at the time I was looking....did see some interesting stuff. But I've got to spill the beans on these folks. Most of them are city folk wandering around in the woods without a clue.
One of the things this group used to do is put a net of fresh fruit out in hopes of luring bigfoot to the bag. It was then that I realized the leaders of this group knew nothing about Texas wildlife. That night as we waited for big furry by a stream behind a house...I watched flying squirrels descend on the bag like fleas on a dog.
I made mention of this to the group leader, and they haven't put out bags of fruit anymore....as I recall.
Other dumb things they do for TV is show folks wandering through the woods in broad daylight after saying BF is nocturnal.
My father and grandfather and great grandfther believed something called the Burns Booger lived in the woods where I am originally from. They always ran into it when they were hunting. These were poor people who hunted with hounds in the deep south. The meat they put on the table was often alive that morning.
When my father was a boy something spooked his hounds when he was up a tree trying to drive down a raccoon. It scared him so bad he abandoned the raccoon and left the woods to whatever was coming. My greatgrandfather was driven out of the forest by something some time shortly after WWI. He said it was the booger. My dad later reason it was people making illegal whiskey.....but before he died a few years ago....he said whatever had been in those woods was still there.
I don't think idiots with TV cameras will find bigfoot....that if anyone does...it will be a local man or woman who just happens to be at the right place at the right time.
