So I was chat-chitting with my dad the other night about wierd shit we've seen. And he tells me this crazy story of something he saw five years ago and I would like to share it with ya'll. I'm trying to think of a logical explanation, and I'm not having any luck on google. So here's the story:
We live in a heavily forested area in northwest washington. (not a bigfoot story). My dad is a hunter and he went out to one of his regular hunting spots on his quad. He was on a hillside, and he was looking at a hillside in front of him, probably about a quarter mile away. It was a sunny day and he saw a flash of metal on the adjacent hill. When he looked more closely it appeared to be human-like figure, but metal. It glistened like metal when the sun hit it. he said he noticed it because it was peeking out at him from behind a tree. he saw the shape of a head and shoulders but could not see arms or legs. the thing looked out from behind a tree, stared at him a while, and went back behind a tree. it did this 3 or 4 times, he didnt see it for a while, then he saw it looking out from another tree ten feet or so the right of it. this happened all over the course of about 45 minutes, after which he got freaked out and left. he said it gave him a very uneasy feeling and has no idea what it was. he's hunted that spot many times and knows the terrain. he said he's tried to get to that hillside once but the terrain is so rough it took him over an hour to get only about a 3rd of the distance the object in question was at. he had not seen this before or since.
for the record, my dads not a nutjob, he didnt make any claims of what it is. he just told me about it and how weird and creepy he thought it was. hes not the lying sort so i definitely believe him, but im also sure theres gotta be a logical explanation. any ideas at what it might be?
