Sierra Kills: This post from Taxidermy.net was where it all began [Bigfoot Shooting]
"If You Saw Bigfoot, Would You Shoot It?"
This was the title of the thread that was originally posted by Justin Smeja on Taxidermy.net before it was removed. The thread was unusual because the question wasn't posted on a Bigfoot forum. Instead, it was posted on a website forum about taxidermy, a method of reproducing a life-like three-dimensional representation of an animal for display.
When Smeja posted this question, he was not yet convinced he shot Bigfoot. According to Robert Lindsay, "Smeja did not believe in Bigfoot at the time of the shootings, and one month later, he still doesn’t really believe in Bigfoot. So his mind is making up all sorts of strange stories about bears in order to try to make sense of the incident."
It's difficult to know for sure what Smeja was thinking when he shot the creature in the back as it tried to get away. What we do know is that his story has been consistent from the very beginning. The location of the shooting had always been in Northern California. The "bear" always walked on two legs. Smeja has never mentioned a third person. It had always been him and his neighbor (the driver).

And then read this latest article by Robert Lindsay and you will notice that Smeja's original statement and the incident originally reported by Derek Randles are pretty much on par. Lindsay somehow managed to recover the original thread that had been deleted by an Admin.
You can read more about this on Robert Lindsay's blog.
Update: Justin Smeja posted a response about a comment made by Autumnforest. We want to correct him on this since he's probably talking about a different "Autumn". The person he's probably referring to in the comment is Autumn Williams, author of "Enoch - A Bigfoot Story." Autumn Williams operates a website a www.oregonbigfoot.com.
Update #2: Justin apologized for the confusion. "Oh... my bad. You can talk all the shit you want then autumn. You have no reason not to. Shawn you can delete that if you want to as to not offend the person I thought I was talking to. Apparently she's just been minding her own business."
Update #3: Tom Biscardi offering $50,000 for Justin Smeja's Bigfoot steak.
Update #4: Results of the nuclear DNA testing for the Bigfoot Steak [Sierra Kills]
