Justin Smeja and Robert Lindsay. Smeja and I are now talking. I find him honest and forthright. And compared to so many of the hyper-competitive, ruthless, cutthroat backstabbers in Bigfootery, I actually think Smeja is a very nice guy. He’s not your average treacherous Bigfoot kook.
He’s just a regular guy who didn’t even believe in Bigfoot who got dragged into this mess against his own will. He has now been dragged headfirst into a whirlwind. I don’t think he’s out for fame or fortune, but like anyone, he wouldn’t mind making a bit of cash. To me, he’s just a regular working guy, unpretentious, doesn’t put on airs, a bit of a redneck, deeply religious, who just gets up every morning and goes off to do his job. Very down to Earth and a quite decent fellow.
Some sources have suggested that Smeja has narcissistic or sociopathic tendencies. At least the narcissism is epidemic in the Bigfoot world, not so sure about the sociopathy. In an extended conversation, I did not observe any extreme narcissism in Smeja, and I understand this problem very well. I also did not detect any sociopathic tendencies, but admittedly that can be hard to pick up on. If anything, he may be a bit young, trusting and naive.
Is he trigger-happy? Possibly, but I don’t get into the good hunter – bad hunter dichotomy. You either shoot live animals or you don’t. If you do, well, you’re the same as all the rest of them. I don’t hunt myself, and I could never shoot a live animal, so I don’t get hunting, but I try to be understanding.
And yes, I do believe his story about the Sierra Kills, bizarre and insane as it is.
I am very glad I met Smeja, and I am looking forward to a fruitful relationship with him.
Location of Sierra Kills revealed. Smeja has revealed the location of the Kills to be at 7,200 feet in the Sierra Buttes near Sierra City, California in Sierra County, California. I had previously said that I thought it was in the Buttes. You can look it up on the map and see if you can find a more exact location.
Justin Smeja looking to taxidermy a Bigfoot? I had already heard this rumor before, but it was off the record, so I could not publish it. Here are two old threads from Taxidermy.net.
The first is from October 11, 2010, three days after the Sierra Kills. The poster is “General Lee,” who may just be Justin Smeja. After all, he posts as “General” on Bigfoot Forums, and he takes redneck as far as you can possibly take it. It makes sense that a hardcore redneck like Smeja would idolize Robert E. Lee, famous general of the Confederacy.
In this post, General Lee is asking if anyone has a taxidermied Bigfoot he can look it. He wants to see if what he shot was a Bigfoot or not. This could be Smeja, three days after the kills, (ignorantly) trying to find a Bigfoot specimen to compare it with what he shot. I believe this could well have been Smeja as “General Lee.”
Bizarrely, one reply, from November 23, 6 weeks after the Kills, suggests that “General Lee” is the only person on Earth to have a life-sized taxidermied Bigfoot. Is this person implying that Smeja had a taxidermied Bigfoot by that date? For the record, Smeja denies having a taxidermied Bigfoot.
The next thread is from October 24, 2011, one year after the Sierra Kills. In this case, a taxidermist from Indiana reported that he got a call from a strange guy who asked if he could taxidermy a Bigfoot. The taxidermist said sure and quoted him a price. But the strange man never called back.
My sources suggested that the man may have been Smeja. Also the return call from the man had caller ID blocked, and Smeja has had his caller ID blocked for some time now. Does this mean that Smeja was looking around for someone to taxidermy a Bigfoot? For the record, Smeja denies looking for someone to taxidermy a Bigfoot. He also states that he does not have a body.
Skinned or frozen whole

Looking for a Sasquatch (Yeti, Big Foot…etc..).
Preferably with skull, hands and feet in. Dorsal cut. Please include pics with NTB measurements. Also, would like to know of any slippage or nicks if any. Would like a good thick winter fur with long guard hairs but am interested in any specimen. Must have all papers and documentation and tagged according to Fish and Game regs.
I look forward to hearing from you.

General Lee is a famous Sasquatch researcher, has encountered them before and has documentation. The best out there, he’s the only one in the world to have a real life size taxidermied big foot, I hardly think hes joking.
Sasquatch manikin ???
« on: October 24, 2010, 11:14:22 PM » Got a call tonight asking if I did Sasquatch. I said sure. They’re about the size of a Griz, right? Told him $3200. He said he will be here tomorrow. Boy am I excited.

Good Idea Coonhollow. I didn’t even think of the open mouth. It said private number on caller ID. But I think he’s gonna show up. I’ll bring it up then. Thanks.

Did the guy ever show up? Curious to hear about this one!
Offer to buy the Sierra Kills Bigfoot steak. As we reported earlier, Justin Smeja’s Bigfoot steak from the Sierra Kills is up for sale. Asking price was $10,000. On the show, Biscardi upped the offer to $50,000, with money to go into an escrow account and money transfer to occur upon proof that the steak is what Smeja says it is.
Bloody clothes from the Sierra Kills. Smeja has agreed with us that the juvenile Bigfoot died in his arms. That’s a very strange thing to do to a wild animal. Hunters don’t cradle their dying prey. But I feel that this thing may have looked so human that it brought out Smeja’s compassionate or guilty instincts. This is why he cradled it in his arms as it passed. As a consequence, Smeja got Bigfoot blood on his clothes. These bloody clothes are in storage at the moment, and they may have Bigfoot DNA on them.
