    Skunk ape huh, maybe that explains this pic on my camera. I couldn't figure out where it came from.



    There are reports of skunk apes up into Virginia.

    bear, gator, cougar. a bobcat should probably sound more or less like a house cat but ive heard some house cats with pretty deep voices too. a badger can make a pretty scary sound but then again if you get close enough to hear them they generally rush yah. dont know Ozzy, thats why i pack a gun out walking cause i aint bright enough to back off when i hear an intereting noise.

    A few years ago in the middle of the night i heard a large chorus of weird, high-pitched sounds over the field behind my house. There was many sources of the sound and i had never heard it before. The sound was LOUD and all the sources were moving fast across the field. It was a creepy, unearthly sound and it faded into this distance.

    This year, by chance, was listening to random bird recordings. I now know what it was.

    It was a flock of Red-necked Phalaropes migrating at night from their arctic breeding grounds and using a contact call to keep the flock together.

    Many generally silent shorebirds can make weird sounds during migration and atleast two may make a growling noise if disturbed while roosting.
    that makes no logic

    Ozzy,

    Maybe it was the Jersey Devil! I heard he's got a condo in Myrtle Beach, so maybe he was takin a walk in the swamp.
    Seriously though, without knowing all the details as to how much water was near by, the amplitude of the growl it's hard to say what kind of critter it was. Could have been a male gator, black bear(I've had them growl and click their teeth at me), or even a wild boar. Sightings of bears and the wild boars are becoming more frequent as their wild habitat is encroached upon. Either way I'd be packin my 357 if I went back there. And I'd definitely go back, I'd have to look for prints or a nest /den anything. I never said I was smart!
    there is a pleasure in being mad, which only a madman can enjoy!

    Oh I plan on going back. I almost always have my .45 with me. But since I didn't plan on going very far into the woods I left it in the van. I thought about getting it and going in to see what it was but I decided it was best to just leave it alone.
    I don't think there are boars or badgers here. I've never heard a badger but it wasn't a boar. The closest thing I can think it would have been was a gator. But it really didn't sound like one. I don't know if this will make sense, but it wasn't a threatening growl. It sounded more like it was just mumbling. But maybe since I've never heard that before and since I couldn't see what it was, it made the hair on my neck crawl and chills go up my spine. It wasn't really that loud, just a low mumbling growl.
