Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Beer-Man aka Paul, Shawn's best friend in Canada.
A friend of mine had a great quote to deal with the "coined" term "believer" in the bigfoot world.
"In all honesty I never had a word in mind regarding the "belief" in Bigfoot. To me, the word believer conjures up a blind acceptance of any and all evidence presented to an individual, which is simply not true in my case." - SasquaiNation
Well, in my case, I am that guy! It's guys like SN that keep me off the path of gullibility. I get excited about every piece of evidence that I come across (Shawn knows this as well) and want to share with everyone and 99% of the time, my excitement turns to reality-- And I keep searching. But, in this next instance, I "think" I am "kinda" (trying to be skeptical) stoked on this new video.
I have been communicating with "bigddriller1" about a video he posted yesterday. Heres our conversation:
Beer-Man (22 hours ago trying to be skeptical with a big smile on my face) - "what's the deal?"
bigddriller1 - no response
Beer-Man (18 hours later and still trying to be skeptical) - "Are u claiming this to be real?"
bigddriller1 - "All I know is I didn't hang around long enough to ask. I don't know wat it was"
Beer-Man (still trying to be skeptical and playing it cool) - "So you're saying it was not set up as a fake? Interesting? Would you might giving a location? Maybe a story of the events leading up to the sighting?"
bigddriller1 - "I live in southeast OK in the Kiamichi mountains.
I was going back to check on my deer stand last October getting ready for bow season. I had made it back to my stand and was checking everything out when I caught a glimpse of something. I thought it was a bear coming threw the woods like they do often by my stand. So I was just going to video it with my phone. As whatever it was got closer I could tell that it wasn't a bear. Then it started to make a wide circle around me and I tried to get a quick shot of it until it was getting a little to close for comfort and not knowing what it was I left. I'm just going to say this was the only time I've ever seen anything in the woods and couldn't tell you what it was for sure."
Beer-Man (patting myself on my back for my great research skills.....hahaha) - "Do you mind if I share your story with a friend of mine, so he could post your story and video on his bigfoot blog? Oh, and also.......very cool story!"
bigddriller1 - "That would be fine with me. Thanks for the interest"
Alright folks, lets figure this one out. At first viewing, I thought I saw a plastic face mask look towards the camera. Don't see it anymore. When you look at the arms, they seem to be the right length. The walk seems real. The story seems believable. And also its in HD off a phone, so the quality is pretty good.
What do you see?
