Dude, I just have one question for ya. What insane asylum did you escape from? You need to take your happy little cry baby self back and get back on your meds. These creatures are not your friend and never will be. I have been watching these things for the last nine years and can tell you one thing for sure and that is if you get close without a powerful firearm you will be as good as dead. Like i said, I first saw one nine years ago from the safety of my 50 cal , 454 casul, and glock ten mil with RIP rounds. I stalked it best as i could and finally found the mother load. Their home. I have stayed in the shadows and filmed them eat whole adult cows that were struck by lighting. They shredded the 700lb cows in ten minutes not leaving anything behind. I dont normally talk about this stuff but you pulled me from the shadows with your crazy talk. If you have any value on your life you will stay home. I have them on film attacking me from all sides. The only reason im here now is because of the two firearms i had. One in each hand and a 50 cal over my shoulder. The CS gas I threw at them had no effect. The only thing they understand is lead. We have a cease fire understanding now. I still film them and they still chase after me. Doesnt matter that i feed them. Im telling you now. Dont even think about any of that garbage your talking.
Al, thank you very much. My main concern with this fella (in addition to the risk at which he is placing himself) is that his b.s. might encourage some innocent people to go out into the field and seek this thing in the manner he says he is doing. It is insanity and they will never find his remains when it decides to eat.
Please register. I want to PM you with a question.
You think I'm nuts, just because I want to reach out and make peace with Dogmen? Why are you people so bitter about that? Most people only know how to hate and fear things. I think your just put out because someone out there has the courage to do something in a way that no one else would dare to. That doesn't make me nuts.
My encounters with Dogmen are passive because that is the way that I approached THEM. I showed them trust and respect first, despite all the negative claims people were making against them, whether true or not, but my experiences have proven to myself so far, that the way you approach them is the way they will approach you back. Did you try to discover the Dogmen so you could destroy them, or did you seek them out for peaceful reasons. I feel they are very intuitive about people.
I don't go looking for Dogmen armed. For one thing, I hate guns, and second, I wasn't there planning to defend myself against them, because I didn't go there giving them any reason to want to. I always acknowledge them when I'm out, respect them, ask their permission to be in their territories. I approach them very softly, but they are smart, and can likely tell if someone is just bluffing them with gifts or niceness.
What comes from your heart is the real you, you can't easily hide that.
Yes my ways are different from people going through the woods with guns, but these Dogmen are very intelligent. That is one of the things that put me at ease towards them from the beginning.
No one has to follow in my footsteps. I'm just sharing my experiences with Dogmen. This world is full of hateful people. If the risk of being around Dogmen is so high like you say it is, I would not be here.
I knew very well, what Dogmen were capable of, by listening to other people's stories and encounters. That still did not give ME as an individual a reason to fear them or not trust them, because I don't know what the circumstances were regarding WHY the Dogmen confront certain individuals in an aggressive manor. Maybe it's something about a person, Intuition that makes a dogman aggressive towards someone. Animals can sense things, Dogmen likely can too.
Life is a journey, and I'm out there to learn more about it. If my passive methods disgust you so, maybe you just never considered it to be possible.
If the Dogmen are attacking and chasing you while on THEIR turf, I'm wondering what it was you did to ruffle their fur, because when I go searching for Dogmen and reach out and call out to them, they are passive towards me. I'm not crazy, and I'm not being an idiot, I'm just being honest. I'm just being me.
Wolfkin says dogman is a keen judge of a man's character and motives. Hmmm.... I've heard that somewhere else.....
Anubis is one of the most iconic gods of ancient Egypt. [Anubis is depicted as a (almost always black) dog-headed man (or sometimes just a big black dog).] ... He was initially related to the Ogdoad of Hermopolis, as the god of the underworld. In the Pyramid Texts of Unas, Anubis is associated with the Eye of Horus who acted as a guide to the dead and helped them find Osiris. In other myths Anubis and Wepwawet (Upuaut) led the deceased to the halls of Ma´at where they would be judged. Anubis watched over the whole process and ensured that the weighing of the heart was conducted correctly. He then led the innocent on to a heavenly existence and abandoned the guilty to Ammit. ... The ancient Egyptian goddess Ammit (also known as Ammut and Ahemait) was the personification of divine retribution. She sat beside the scales of Ma'at ready to devour the souls of those deemed unworthy. ... (source: http://www.ancientegyptonline.co.uk)
Now, back to you, wolfkin. Do I think you're crazy? I dont' know. I'm not a shrink. I think what you are doing is crazy. I'm not calling you crazy or anything else. You might be, or you might be deluded, or perhaps you are even being deceived by spiritual entities whose only goal is to devour you (body and soul). One thing for sure is that you are clueless as to the danger you are in. You can hate guns all you want. If the time comes when you find yourself being eaten alive, I'll bet you'd cry out to a person with a gun to help your a$$ real quick. Most people will, even though they are too high and mighty to do it themselves (see A Nation of Cowards, by Jeffrey R. Snyder; that is one of the very best articles on the subject I've ever read).
Best wishes wolfkin, even though you said all kinds of false stuff about me and the others here.
I know my own species only too well. People have persecuted many areas of wildlife over the years and even each other. You can belittle me all you want. If people have contributed to the Dogmen being mean and aggressive, that is one of the questions I am searching for an answer to. This life and this world does not revolve around people. Humans have been terrible stewards of planet Earth, and things are likely to get worse.
I enjoyed reading your text about annubis and ammut. There are many in this world that only care about themselves and not life as a whole, nor the good and balance of all things. Balance is not just about a scale of truth or justice, but a necessity for the continuation of life. Humans have done a lot of things that are contrary to nature's balance and harmony. It's not too late for people to turn around and work on a better future for the good of all things.
While people view Dogmen as a threat, I am seeing something different. Humans are the biggest threat to themselves and all life everywhere. The way that most people see life today, is the way man has corrupted it.
Most people don't really stop and think about it like that. And when we continue to develop this world and take it over for ourselves, eventually, I feel, that something is going to step forward and put humanity in its place, and our place is to respect things and be in balance with life. Not hoarding it for ourselves and bending everything around us to our wills.
Call me crazy if you like. I call it wisdom. And I am not high and mighty. I am humble and courageous enough to speak out against the wrongs of my own species.
The people that Dogmen go after, maybe those people's hearts were consumed by pride, arrogance and self worth. Just a thought. You hear about Dogmen killing people, but there are never any details as to why. Were these people disrespectful towards nature? Were they not balance minded? Were they consumed by ego's and glorifying their own species above everything else? Who stops to think about questions like these?.
Much to be learned about the black dogs for sure, but your mention of ammut and the annubis story may be more spot on than people realize. An Indian story speaks about the watchers, and if you enter the woods with disrespect towards nature in your heart , you may not come back. I have that story on my Google page. It's inspiring.
I'm not trying to be high and mighty regarding Dogmen or anything. If I come across that way, it is not intentional. I'm just sharing my views. My views may not be appreciated or understood, but those are my feelings about things.
If I am appealing enough for Dogmen to grab me and have me for a snack, they have had MANY "rediculously easy" opportunities to do so. I think maybe they are more interested and intrigued that I am different from most everyone else. I have yet to even be growled at when I'm in dogman areas, and find myself in their presence.
What New Jersey Park ranger Steve Irwin was may have not been a dogman but something else. I just picked up this weeks issue of Weird New Jersey Issue 48. And in one of the articles is encounter with some kind of creature that looks to me, Not as a dogman but as a Minotaur. The art of the creature in the Weird New Jersey article looks to have a pig snout, Horns on the top of its head, Red slanted eyes, whitish hair, Black spots on its hips and cloven hooves on its feet. If anyone could pick up this weeks copy of Weird New Jersey they will see what I am talking about. Looks like I got en even newer crypto creature living in my state. Just wanted to report this to the N.A.D.P. Any new info I get, I will post it here but it looks like this creature could be mistaken for a dogman.
The website www.phantomsandmonsters.com has a posting dated 8 July 2017 regarding a Dogman sighting in Pennsylvania by 2 witnesses on 4 July 2017 in Bald Eagle State Park. The park is located in the north central part of the state, within or adjacent to Bald Eagle State Forest.
ag47,I'm hoping to get over to the "Lycan Loop" sometime this fall,to camp out & do some research. Mainly Dogman but also Bigfoot.I haven't settled on a spot & I'd appreciate any suggestions you have as to a good location to conduct my research. I met Dave Paulides at a conference years ago, & I've been following his advice ever since (don't go alone, let someone know where you'll be/when you'll return, carry a satellite transponder,& carry a large caliber firearm,or better yet,two ).
Wolfhound, if you're not experienced at backpacking and dispersed camping I would urge you to reconsider and start smaller to work yourself up to it. Thst is, unless you're meaning a developed camp site.
Many things can occur when you are back packing carrying weight, limited food and no quick and easy access to medical care.
Please do your research thoroughly through other means than Davids books. And most important; light weight and quality gear. You don't want to be packing cheap value gear into your pack when your life may depend on that gear. Always have backup emergency rations, more than one source to start fires and backup water filtration/tablets.
Wolfhound. What Bryan says is correct. Hiking and camping are not exclusive clubs though, and are available to everyone, we just all need to know our limitations. For me, I am not able to do extensive hiking so any observation I'll do will be from easily accessible places. I agree with Paulides' recommendations. That is pretty much S.O.P. for me anyway. I can't afford an transponder, or SAT-Phone though. (it would be nice).
I have no recommendations for any specific places to visit around here. I'm still thinking on the subject and if I come up with any ideas I'll PM you. Please do the same for me. Use my I.D. here and send a message.
One thing I can say is that it doesn't appear to be necessary to go deep into the wild or even be there at night to encounter one of these things (either bigfoot or dogman). People have encountered them right on the roadways, and in residential areas.
I would like to find a high point from which I could observe a wild area with binoculars and telephoto lenses on one of my DSLRs. I will NOT go alone, even in an accessible area, nor will I go unarmed (as much to protect against the human predators as any cryptids).
Like I said if I hear of anyplace I'll share it.
There is a map with the article on Lon's site about the encounter in Bald Eagle, with coordinates.
Thanks, and keep us up to speed on goings-on please.
