Swamp gas

Yes, that is the reason given for Swamp Ape odor. They supposedly bed down in (empty :yes: ) alligator nests or hide in their holes**, something like that, I remember hearing some years back but don't remember exactly. And end up with that sulphur smell.

As far as bigfoot? Humanoid with full body hair, sweat glands? no bathing or soap or hygiene practices = stinky ( I would think, but can't be sure). Some witnesses may not smell an odor if they are not downwind, not close enough, in too much of a state to notice, or it's winter (when they smell better) or odor may depend on their diet or...

Then again the local NA claim their hairy swamp man has a sweet odor. We lived in a house with sulphur water. The bathroom would smell, but we never did, and it was great for skin and hair as I remember (softening).

What do you label an "encounter"?
Was the smell enough to send you the opposite away?

You could distinguish this creatures smell from  the surrounding smell of the swamp.
What do you think they eat? If a carnivore/omnivore how do you think it might sneak up on or surprise ambush an animal with a nose?
Even if it "sets" some kind of trap, wouldn't the trap smell of this highly odorous creature?

keninsc could answer this, but couldn't the VC smell us too? Or is that a myth.

Yes, but I heard the VC could smell our soldiers because of our diet. But it could have been from a movie, for all I know.

Pareidolia...

IMHO.

What I don't get is that these guys make a video from 100 yards away, and "see" bigfoot or dogman or whatever... and instead of moving half that distance forward and confirming that there is something really there, or even more bravely.... going to the spot where the supposed critter is and looking for tracks or scuff marks... They instead end the video with lines drawn around some shadows and then proceed to show another long range video of shadows culmonating in lines drawn to help show what is supposed to be there.

For goodness sakes.... Even moving 20 or 30 feet to the left or right (if they are too "afraid" to move forward) while taping would go a LONG way toward showing that there is really something there or just shadows...

Similar to the infamous Monstertalk segment up at Cross Lake where they were in the cabin and absolutely convinced that Bigfoot was throwing rocks down on the tin roof.  So what do they do when confronted with what could be irrefutable proof that the creature exists - why they cower in fear in their cabin of course - including the guy who just slept out the previous night in a tent on the far side of the lake all by himself hoping bigfoot showed himself.

So do they want to find him or not?

I'm not sure but I think one of the guys began crying.......they needed Super Rick Dyer to come to their rescue.

The smell of the skunk ape is quite different form the smell of the swamp itself. Kind of like how nothing else smells like wet dog. I would hazzard a guess at omnivore, but I don't think they use traps.

Every Bigfoot, or to use the colloquial "Skunk Ape", I have encountered has had a horrible odor. Maybe it is just the environment and other's in dryer climates might have a different scent.


Can you possibly make a topic on your encounters? With some details?

Back after I fought in Nahm,, I spent time in Florida, after hiking all of the USA. And, I am familiar with the environment, and smells there. Being a Ex Sniper / Tracker / Bomb expert in Iraq, I also learned a lot of things, with my hiking in every State if the USA, to maybe help you decipher your experiences.
Yeah. I want to read more about these SkunkFoots too!!!!

My only "encounter" was with a nasty odor while deer hunting in Georgia, I'd have to say it's not much of an "encounter". Didn't see or hear anything, found no prints, but never have smelled anything like that in my life. The only reason I think it might have been one is because a couple days later is when my first Buddy told of seeing one while he was hunting, And yes, I filled in the blanks, truth is I have no idea what it was, I describe it as smelling like a dozen smelly Frenchmen, a very body ordor-y, pungent, slightly sulphur-y smell. I recall sitting on my stand at the base of a tree and almost having tears in my eyes it was so bad. Now they was a pulp and paper mill about five miles away as the crow flies, but it didn't smell like that, but then I can't completely rule that out. To call it an encounter based on just a smell is at best a reach, but what the hey?
