September 2007

While hunting in the Whiteswan Lake area in September, 2007, I encountered a creature that smelled worse than any bear I have ever smelled, and I've hunted over 35 years. I had just sat on a stump to enjoy a chocolate bar, when this god awful smell permeated the whole area. It took a minute to spot the source of the smell. There it was, about 50 yards to my right. Standing stalk straight was something very tall and ugly. Quite startled, I reached for my rifle, the thing bolted and gone. Never did put much store in stories about strange creatures, but now I do!
