SRA-Todd:

 

I don’t remember very many (if any) reports in the area being associated with a bad smell. Have I just missed that detail or is this out of the ordinary?

 

I’ve encountered plenty of foul smells while out squatching but have always been able to trace them back to me. It would be nice to be able to shift the blame to the big guy.

SRA Andy:

 

It is not uncommon in sasquatch encounters. They do tend to have a rotten egg/rotting meat smell. We believe that like a similar odor in gorillas (and to a lesser degree, us) it is a fear/stress released odor. In gorillas and humans these chemicals come from glands in the arm pit and is stronger in males; we postulate that the same may be true for sasquatches.

 

I’ve personally encountered this scent 3 times while investigating sasquatch areas/during encounters.

Assuming the RP will be checking in to see his report printed, a couple words of advice/observations…

 

Just me talking here, but if I were solo camping (or even buddy camping) in northern Minn and I hear what I believed to be large footfalls close/loud enough to be heard and/or felt clearly, I wouldn’t dismiss them and go back to sleep. No scout around the camp perimeter out of curiosity, let alone survival instinct?

 

Outdoors-folk who have a possible encounter often start snooping it out in earnest. One must always be careful about classifying an unseen encounter as a monkee (paragraph 3), even though it may well be. Like testifying in court, if you don’t know, then state it clearly. To do otherwise is the path to credibility issues…

 

Good luck in your future monkee chasing…

For the most part the most dreaded sound you will hear in the MN bush is the high pitched whine of a mosquito. Sure there are bears, squatch’s and wolves but most people will never know if they encounter one.

 

I was scared when it pushed me because I wasn’t expecting it. I have talked to other people about it and the only thing they and me can attribute to being able to push me like that was a sasquatch. That is why I included the ‘monkee’ in my report. I didn’t snoop around because I was tired after being woken up in the middle of the night and just wanted to get out of there.

One thing I plan on doing this summer is scouting out the area of this encounter and see if I can find positions at each local campsite where a sasquatch could sit and watch campers. I also want to see if there is any type of trail system originating from the nearby bog to the campsites or if they have created a trail that parallels the Superior Hiking Trail. If I do have luck and find a trail or trail system I would attempt to map it out and record video of it.

 

If anyone has any tips or advice on this I'm all ears. I plan on doing this after the June expedition.

Watch for twist offs about chest height.  We have found that they often mark a hidden entrance to a paralleling trail.

Kris your help would be greatly appreciated as we would be able to 'leap-frog' through areas of heavy brush in search of trails.

Still haven't done what I talked about in this thread. I really want to at least go back to this campsite with someone this year. Mainly to just try to recreate what went on that night. Can a person easily push me with enough force to push me to the back of the shelter? Can a person easily knock down the tarp that was pretty much drum tight?

 

I'm just curious.

....MIchael, I'm not really into the winter camping thing.  But keep me in mind for this outing, pretty much any place any time.  It sounds good to me.

Hey Marshall I'm looking to do this when everything is green. I'm 95% certain I know where the possible squatch was hanging out. I also have an idea that it could have easily been hidden while I was eating its raspberries higher up on the ridge before I dropped down to the river.
