One night laying in ambush in South Rainer we heard what sounded like a Tank coming up behind us. It was weird as we were on the side of hill. Seconds later a dam heard of Elk over ran us... Scared the shit right out of us as they jumped over us into the road. South Rainer really was a scary place.

The new TV series expedition Bigfoot claims to have caught a Sasquatch on thermal imaging walking/running near Ft Hood area.

Quinalt Indian reservation area of Western Washington is rumored to be even more remote/ spooky than South Rainer - Sasquatches many there. Many stories, sightings, lore and legends from the tribes there.

Seen some strange things in the wilderness. In my patrol area of Cambodia we had 60 elephants. Such a large animal, yes had caught on Camera traps and saw a glimpse of one in the wild. Many times fresh tracks and sings. But very elusive and avoiding of humans. Always amazed me how a whole herd could move so silently and quite and remain elusive in such a thickly forested area. Seen a Sambar running through the woods once, a rack similar to an elk. How it could haul ass through that terrain, where as I would kill my self if I tried to run even ten feet in that terrain. Saw a Snow Leopard in Nepal, very elusive creature, but I was down wind and nearby river masked my sound. Heard many gibbons, monkeys as well, and seen how they communicate, have security lookouts, have while communities. So, I just don’t put it at all out of the possibility a highly evolved primate being very elusive.

Many tales, and even one of the wildlife photographers I worked with has a story of coming face to face with, the Small Sasquatch ape men that live in Sumatra. Locals refer to them just as like another primate.

Thick heavy vegetated unpopulated habitat, combined with many caves, and nocturnal creature equals elusive.

Most people are not aware that bats make up 25% of the mammal population - cause we hardly see them cause they are nocturnal.

Notice the crisp starched BDUs and B&G Ranger Tab adorning SFC Swackhammer's steely eyed, fully camouflaged, pose as well.

God damn, I don't miss the 90's. Not one bit.

How do you know he is not on target?



M16A1 full auto from the hip - an approved 1980s technique.
