10 years ago, my immediate response would have been "Oh, Bullcrap," or something more colorful...not so much now though. Aside from the story itself though, the guy just tells it in a straightforward way, doesn't seem like he's trying to tell a good tale, isn't trying to convince anyone...nobody but him will ever know if he's telling the truth or not, be he comes across as though HE fully believes what he says he saw.

My thoughts on this are what is the average height of a deer stand? so after some searching I found 15-30 foot seems normal for deer with 20ft or more being preferred to get your scent of the ground.

So, after swinging he thinks it’s a gorilla or a guy in a suite and starts talking to the thing “saying take the mask off” so within hearing distance.

It starts eyeballing him and looking at him in a sinister way for a few minutes, so again close to see that. He then goes on to say 20-50 yards away so he looks through his high powered scope, but he was already talking to the thing and seen it give him sinister looks for a few minutes – mmh!

The thing whistles for it’s buddy, so he JUMPS down off his stand (20 ft……that’s a big jump, even if he had of said climbed I would of still had a problem with the height and those things charging at him) and runs for his truck, then conveniently fires a warning shot which appears to justify height of 7ft hitting a tree and blowing bark into the things face.

I think you can guess what I think of this.
