Bigfoot Guidelines For Adams, Bowman, And Slope County North Dakota

In the southwestern corner of North Dakota, in Adams, Bowman, and Slope Counties, large animals thought not to be common in North Dakota seem to show up:  bear, mountain lion, and wolverine.  These counties are sparsely populated and mostly undeveloped, which make them appear inviting to large predators that may be traveling through from the equally unpopulated and undeveloped land in upper South Dakota and southeastern Montana.

Bigfoot have probably been roaming through this area of southwestern North Dakota for thousands of years.  In the past one hundred years, farmers and ranchers in North Dakota have probably had to deal with Bigfoot occasionally, which most likely involved trying to shoot them, kill them, and run them out of the area.

With the death of the old-timers in North Dakota, their failure to mention or pass along any information about Bigfoot to the next generation, and the arrival of many new people from out of state, I have decided to write some guidelines for dealing with Bigfoot in southwestern North Dakota:

There are at least four different species of Bigfoot in the United States, but for the sake of brevity, I will lump the first three species into what is commonly called Bigfoot, and the fourth species I will refer to as Dogman.

The Bigfoot in North Dakota usually travel and live in small family units consisting of a mother, father, and several juveniles.  The adult males and females can reach up to nine feet in height and nearly 1,000 lb in weight.  These Bigfoot prefer to travel and hunt at night, staying out of sight of humans.  But these Bigfoot can and do come out in daytime when there is concealment or when they are forced to.

Bigfoot are omnivores, they will eat vegetables, fruit, grain, insects, fish, rodents, small game, and large animals such as deer, elk, and domestic cattle.  Bigfoot are wary of humans, and try to avoid contact and conflict with humans.  But sometimes, water and food sources are so abundant on farms, such as animal feed, vegetable gardens, chickens, pigs, goats, and cattle, that Bigfoot will try to take these things from farms.

Usually at night, but sometimes during the day, one or more Bigfoot may enter onto a farm or ranch in search for food.  These Bigfoot may be just as startled to see you, as you are to see them.  As with all animals, you do not want to run when you see a Bigfoot, you want to try to back away as calmly as possible to put as much distance as possible between you and them, in part to allow them to feel that they can safely leave.

You do not want to shoot a Bigfoot if at all possible, because even if you are successful in killing this Bigfoot, there may be additional Bigfoot that will close in on you to take revenge, even if it takes them all day or all night trying to get at you.

In some cases where Bigfoot are merely curious or would like for you to leave the area, they may follow you, chase you, throw things at you, throw things at your car, throw things at your house, bang on your car, bang on your house, growl, and howl.  Bigfoot do not usually try to break into people’s homes or vehicles in order to get them, unless they are very, very angry.

People have been torn apart by Bigfoot when someone has shot a member of their family.  Bigfoot have entered people’s houses and beat them when they removed a food source that the Bigfoot had been relying on.  It is recommended that you do not leave food out for Bigfoot either unintentionally or deliberately, because they can become very angry when this food that they were relying on is no longer provided.

Some farmers, ranchers, and land owners do come to long term agreements and understandings with families of Bigfoot, which may include planting a vegetable garden much further away and all by itself solely for the Bigfoot, allowing them access to fruit trees every year, allowing them access to water sources, or leaving food for them at a specific location a comfortable distance from the house.  In these cases, the agreement is that the Bigfoot leave the humans alone, and the humans leave the Bigfoot alone.

Dogman is something entirely different:

There is a species of Bigfoot, called Dogman, that is much different.  Dogman can reach up to nine feet in height, but they are distinctly different in appearance because they have a head that looks like a dog’s head, and their lower legs resemble canine legs and feet.

No, this is not a joke, and I only mention this species of Bigfoot called Dogman out of necessity, because they are always, always life threatening toward humans.  Thankfully, they are much less common than the other three species of Bigfoot.

One tactic or practice of Dogman, is to remain on all fours at a distance, because humans usually can not judge exactly how abnormally large they are at a distance, and might only observe that they appear to be an unusually large dog or large wolf.  It is not until a Dogman is within range to make a kill, that it will stand erect, and walk with equal agility, completely upright.

It appears that Dogman kill humans at every good opportunity they get, for food, out of maliciousness, and to eliminate what they see as a threat and an adversary.  If a person encounters a Dogman, the very first thing that they should do is seek safety if possible to retreat.  If a person spots a Dogman before the Dogman has detected them, and they are unable to retreat, they should remain very still, crouch, and remain hidden, while watching the Dogman, even if they possess a firearm.  The reason why you do not want to shoot at a Dogman if possible, is because you may not kill it with several shots, and there may be more than one of them.

If you do see or encounter a Dogman, you need to contact both the Sheriff and Fish & Game right away, even if you are afraid that they will not take you seriously.  You need to report it right away, so that the Sheriff and Fish & Game will have been alerted that there is something out of the ordinary in the area.  That way, when they respond to other calls about cattle, horses, livestock, or people being harmed with unusual evidence or circumstances, they will begin to know more quickly what they are dealing with.

Jason Dodge For Sheriff Of Bowman County, North Dakota

Today I read an article in the Bowman County Pioneer Newspaper about a person named Jason Dodge running for Sheriff of Bowman County.  When I first saw this newspaper article headline, I thought to myself, is everybody running for Sheriff now?

I am glad that I read this entire newspaper article, because it looks like Jason Dodge would be by far the best person for Sheriff of Bowman County at this time.  I have met the other candidates who are running for Sheriff, and they are nice people, but Jason Dodge is a much better candidate.

There are four main areas that I can point to, to explain why Jason Dodge is what Bowman County needs at this time:  1)  He is not afraid to clearly identify several very significant problems with the Bowman County Sheriff Department and the Bowman Police Department that need to be corrected right away.  2)  He has specific remedies and solutions to fix these significant problems that need to be corrected right away.  3)  He has identified the drug problem in North Dakota as the primary source of most crime, he has vowed to aggressively root out all drug activity in Bowman County, and he has explained his plans for how he would attack the drug problem in Bowman County.  4)  He has had much more extensive and intensive training in law enforcement from having worked for the U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security Service.

To first address Jason Dodge’s qualifications, after serving in the military, he became employed with the Diplomatic Security Service.  This involves working in foreign countries, where every day, 24 hours per day, of your tour of duty, you have to expect, detect, and defend against a bombing, terrorist attack, assassination attempt, kidnapping, espionage, sabotage, theft of classified material, spying, blackmail, extortion, counter intelligence operations, and compromise of personnel.  This is much more intense duty than most Sheriff Departments, Police Departments, or Highway Patrol Departments.

Jason has stated that he will have his personal telephone number posted in the local phone book, so that he can be reached 24 hours per day, and that he will make sure that the Sheriff Deputy on duty will always be reachable by telephone.  He has promised that he or his deputies will respond to all calls, even if they might appear to others as trivial or frivolous.

Jason has stated that he will make sure that there will be complete cooperation between the Bowman County Sheriff Department and the City of Bowman Police Department.  He recognizes that there must be sharing of information, resources, and working together with other law enforcement agencies.

Jason has expressed that he will have zero tolerance for illegal drug use, and that he will have Sheriff Deputies receive additional training in recognizing illegal drug users and illegal drug behavior.  This is the first time that I have seen any member of law enforcement in North Dakota understand that you have to recognize drug users as the first step in following the trail back to the small dealers, bigger dealers, suppliers, and transporters of illegal drugs.

I hope that the people in Bowman County realize the chance that they now have to run the crime out of their county.  The Bowman County Pioneer Newspaper article was very thorough, here is the link to this article http://bowmanextra.com/2018/06/08/dodge-runs-for-bowman-county-sheriff/
