A hunters encounter in Calhoun County, Arkansas

Details of Encounter:

The witness was deer hunting from a “box” stand that was elevated 6 or 8 feet off the ground. The structure was built with two windows which offered a view of a “four-wheeler” trail that lay nearby. The witness was aware of well used game trail that crossed the ATV trail about 75 or 80 yards from his “stand”. Both sides of the ATV trail were bordered by thick brush and vines. He was paying close attention to the area of the game trail crossing. From his position while viewing the game trail crossing, there was a creek to his right, although he could not see the creek because of the high vegetation alongside the ATV trail.

The witness said that as he watched the game trail crossing, be suddenly detected a “rotten egg” smell. He decided the breeze must have changed direction and was carrying the odor from a paper mill located several miles away. A few minutes later, a doe deer came out of the brush from the creek bottoms. The deer was walking at a normal pace. It crossed the vehicle trail and disappeared from his view in the thick vines and brush to his left. About five minutes after seeing the deer, he noticed that the “rotten egg” smell (the witness was aware that what he was smelling was a sulfide odor) suddenly became very strong. As he watched, a large, hair covered, human-like creature stepped out of the brush and momentarily stopped beside the ATV trail. The creature was using the same game trail that the deer had used.

I though for a second it was an upright bear, but I quickly realized it was not a bear or any other animal I had ever seen.”(The witness stated he has hunted bear.) As the creature stood very briefly beside the ATV trail, it never turned to look up or down that trail. Its eyes and attention were fixed on the game trail on the other side of the ATV trail. It then stepped across the ATV trail and followed the game trail (and the doe deer) into the brush.

Although it was already getting dark, the witness stayed in the box stand for another 10 or 15 minutes before getting down and hiking back to camp. He said that he never considered shooting the creature, and gave it plenty of time to leave the area so that he would not encounter it as he walked out. He said that, given the creature’s size and mass, he was not sure one shot would bring it down if it charged him. The witness no longer hunts in that area.

Description of Animal: The witness stated the animal was about eight feet tall. When standing and walking it was on two feet, and its arms were swinging as it moved. He said that its head was somewhat ape-like, and the head and body were covered in brownish-black hair that was two or three inches long, except that it appeared part of the facial area was bare. He said he could not actually see much of the face as his only view was from the side. He said the chin area was covered in beard-like hair that was noticeably longer that the other hair. The creature’s neck was hardly visible.

He said the animal’s upper body was massive and very muscular. When asked specifically, he said he saw no breasts. He then stated that he saw no genitalia either. He said the body was not tapered to the waist, and that the creature appeared to have a somewhat full belly. Its arms appeared to be longer in proportion to its overall height than a human’s. He stated the creature’s legs were also large and muscular, but that they appeared undersize when compared to its upper body’s mass.

    Very interesting. I wonder if the smell was released by the bigfoot because it maybe sensed or smelled a human presence?. Would it not be in the sasquatch interest to stay as odourless as possible? Are deer susceptible to smells surrounding them? I don’t hunt and I’m pretty clueless on that front.
