Montana Man Was Mistaken For Bigfoot And Shot At While He Was Target Shooting

Now I’m not saying that Bigfoot isn’t real, but I am saying that you shouldn’t shoot at Bigfoot until you’re absolutely sure it’s Bigfoot. And even if you are entirely sure that it’s Bigfoot, it’d be way better to capture him alive.

A 27-year-old man was target shooting on public land when he had a near-death experience. While he was setting up targets, he quickly found himself dodging bullets from an unknown source. They were whizzing by his head and hitting the ground by his feet. The man did the smart thing and found cover behind some trees.

Shortly after, he found the source of the gun shots: A man in a truck.

“I thought you were bigfoot.” 

That’s the response the 27-year-old got from the man in the truck once confronted. And it didn’t stop there. The man was very direct –and dumb– with his responses.

“I don’t target practice — but if I see something that looks like bigfoot, I just shoot it.”

When it comes to irresponsible gun owners, this guy in the truck is today’s (unfortunate) winner.

As a reminder, always be mindful and respecting of the 4 Rules of Firearm Safety.

  • The Gun Is Always Loaded
  • Never Point The Gun At Something You Are Not Prepared To Destroy
  • Always Be Sure Of Your Target And What Is Behind It
  • Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger Until Your Sights Are On The Target

And that’s as simple as it is. If we all followed these simple rules, things like this wouldn’t happen. Ever.
