come listen to a poor austrian lose his shit after seeing a werewolf.
this poor guy. he's absolutely terrified.
other great episodes are 12, 15, and 66 if you're interested. They're all pretty good though.
The people recalling these stories, there's just something in their voices when they start recalling what they saw, it just defies reasoning.
bump for dogeman
It's the one cryptid I would be absolutely afraid of if I was in America. Fuck, dogmen are spooky as shit.
This is one of the best videos of dogmen out there to be honest famiglio
You hear all these reports and stories of this and you feel like there's some legitimacy to it. Shit like goatmen/skinwalkers, while really interesting and spoopy to imagine, have never really had as much support as all these encounters we are here.
That poor Austrian guy :(
yeah, dogmen are kind of in a weird spot. While people have obviously seen SOMETHING out there to make them lose their shit, and it looks like a straight up werewolf. How do you tell people? Bigfoot is an ape, and thats a bit easier to get your head around, but when you tell people you've been stalked in the woods by a 8ft tall wolf walking on 2 legs, its like.. huh? what?
but there are a lot of interviews with credible people, all or most have been in military or have tons of hunting and game calling experience. and when they see this they just can't imagine how it exists. but there it is. looking right back at them through the window at night
I'm gonna listen to a few more episodes tonight. But how the fuuuuuck did I just hear about this now? Where did the dogmen come from? Have they always been there and I've somehow never heard of them? Are werewolves real? WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS
I read an account a few years ago of "wolfman creatures" appearing right after a mysterious lights sighting, so there doesn't have to be a missing-link explaination to them: there's a UFO/interdimensional aspect around some of these sightings. And the Medieval and Greek myths before that always attributed their existence to magic like witchcraft, curses, or magical lineage.
I always do like the stuff on /x/ that doesn't comply with normal rules of science.
Same with me, I've heard of lots of encounters with weird stuff in the woods. But since the stories were so vague, the average person just kind of can't relate to it. And most people don't talk about them because who would believe them? The beast of bray road, things like that.
There was a song made in the 80's on some radio show for halloween. It was loosely based on real dogmen encounters, but when people heard it, they started to come forward with sightings. Police even have a radio code for them now. You know how Bigfoot is BLACK COW. Dogmen are BLACK DOG. So there are enough sightings in certain areas to warrant this kind of stuff. Government land being bought off, Skinwalker Ranch. (skinwalker is another name for them, at least the wolfish ones)
They've been around for a really long time, longer than we've been here. They're in native american lore, germany, france (the beast of gerduvan or whatever) Egypt had the dog headed people. Australia and the UK and Italy even have sightings. These people all describe the same thing.
Yeah... I don't know how far the average person on /x/ wants to go down the rabbit hole, but you're right. Sometimes lights can accompany these things. Mostly they aren't seen around dogmen though.
There have been stories about people shooting them with a 30 ought 6 numerous times in the chest and they seem to not even feel it. There's no blood trail afterwards and most times they just walk back into the woods.
They never seem to attack people though, just strays and some farm animals. They LOVE scaring people though, scratching on peoples windows and making cries from the woods that sound like babies or women in distress. They can and have manipulated doorknobs to get into houses and barns.
I think most people now just finally have a face to put on these things in the woods, so sightings now are becoming more common.
yeah, i don't know either. but they come here anyway. its retarded.
Just havent really seen a lot of dogmen stuff on /x/, so I'm hoping to change it. Even if its just posting about the show every friday and sharing the few things I come across. It's better than a lot of the shit here.
The weird thing is that for all it's classic movie monster fame, actual wereWOLVES aren't in that many crypid folk traditions.
Dogmen, yes. Hyenamen, jackelmen, even panthermen, them too. But outside of fairytales about red hoods and trios of pigs you don't see actual Wolfmen that often.
And it also sucks that the IRL Mummy's curse never involves a walking corpse.
While I'd really like to believe that this guy is legit, his footage is all absolute shit. All of it is blurry and indiscernible as fuck. You can't tell anything's even there. Still, his explanations and demeanor do kind of sell the whole situation, and I want to believe him, but his footage is all worthless.
if you don't bother listening to the encounters show or seeing the pictures on the page, then there's going to be no convincing you. you aren't putting the effort in, so why would anyone else? whatever
It's all in how someone understands these things. Lots of animals can walk on 2 legs when they have to, but maintain running speed and stuff like that? That's what freaks people out. It doesn't even have to be a canine but some other unclassified offshoot of something, if someone were to come across a body of one they could just mistake it for a really big wolf.
I've heard this too, but when he lets the person speak he never interrupts. so thats the trade off I guess. you have a lot of other hosts who just wont shut the fuck up over other people.
Old news, dogmen were confirmed real as far back as this video:
It was here that dogmen were proved to be real. Its actual real video of one, no lie.
I am. I'm sorry I wish there were more information about them but thats the only thing besides the Linda Godfrey interviews.
Anyway these cases are more interesting than 99% of shit on this board. It's just a new show every friday.
Here's the question I have: what the fuck and why? What the fuck is a dogman exactly, and why does it exist? A sasquatch makes sense as some sort of intelligent bipedal primate, and could have logically evolved as such. but how the fuck does a wolf man make sense? There's never been any indication in the whole of canine history that a dog would go bipedal.
So how and why the fuck?
There's a screencap of some anon who saw one too, sounded very legit though obviously all /x/ nope threads are to be taken with a pinch of salt. But he saw something easily 10 foot tall, black fur, running on two legs and sometimes on four in a national park somewhere, with a doglike face and sharp fangs.
It might NOT be a canine. It can look like one, but it's gotta be some other kind of bipedal mammal. Some raccoons or bears and things can walk on two legs if they need to. But this thing can RUN on two legs. It defies all reasoning because we don't have anything to compare it to. I don't think it's supernatural in nature, I think it's a real flesh and blood creature. We just can't think of it as a literal dog/man hybrid. It's got to be something else. Something very old
no, there are just a few shitposters. but most everything else in this thread is real speculation.
check it out
people are only just now coming out with these stories. It's true, it's not like bigfoot. At least when people see that, they kind of have an idea. These things are so terrifying that people want to push it out of their minds forever. They can't go or won't go anywhere near the woods anymore. There's an intelligence behind the dogman's eyes that takes something away from folks they can't ever get back again. Without the few radio shows and interviews we have now they'd probably never get talked about at all.
There was an episode of Paranormal Witness about a group of them surrounding a house in Maine, called The Wolfpack. Good shit.
embellished a little at the VERY end, but based on a real encounter.
Most people describe them as looking exactly like the werewolf from van helsing. Black hair, tufts of hair off the tips of the ears. Ears on top of the head like a german shepard. Amber eyes, or red eyes depending on the light source. Hands with claws at the end of them, not fingernails. Some are reported with tails while others aren't.
This is not an RP, and, unfortunately, I can't find any information about it.
A few months ago, I was driving from town back to my house. I know the road well, so I don't really pay any attention to it, other than the necessary amount.
I just turned off the radio and looked up and, for a split second, I saw something standing near the road on my side. It was hunched over and was eye level, maybe higher (its hands touched the ground. Puts it at 6 ft standing) and it was covered in black and grey fur/hair. Didn't get a good look at the face, but it was long and it had yellow eyes. I didn't drive back because I didn't know what it was nor what it was capable of.
A few days after I saw it, I talked to my Dad about it and he knew what I was talking about. He said "I didn't know they were getting closer to the main roads" and said that he and his friends would go on back roads and watch them run in fields.
His speculated and said that they could be mutated racoons or something similar. He mentioned that he tried looking them up before, but couldn't find anything about them. The closest thing he could find was a creature called a "cuccobo" or something (he didn't remember the exact name and couldnt spell it, so that's my best guess).
Goddamn. I'm >>17213067 and I just saw these after writing my post. Both of this fall in line with what I saw, so now I think that it's this "Dogman" creature.
If it helps, I live in the South west US (Missouri, Kentucky, Tennesse, Illinois area).
A lot of screams at night recorded in the woods on youtube are misclassifed as Bigfoot sounds. People don't know what else to call them. These things can howl, but it's so loud that it shakes your chest. People who have heard it said it sounds like something out of a werewolf movie. And it's terrifying. I know people say bigfoot hoot and whistle but howl like a dog? I don't know.
this is a good example of people misidentifying a sound, they think its bigfoot. but i don't know about that anymore
Maybe this guy was playing a prank on his wife with some friends to help and the story got out of hand. Why on Earth would he leave the house twice when he can't even walk properly? If legit, I'm sorry he didn't die horribly for being an idiot.
not saying you're wrong, but the sound was taken from deep deep woods. people can't just go into them at night. it doesn't really work like that. so if it was a prank that'd be some impressive ass shit. I just think there's no way people can get into the deep brush and scream that loud for that long.
if there's a valley out there or something, probably could make any normal animal sound amplified. but who knows, i dont live near any woods
>If it helps, I live in the South west US (Missouri, Kentucky, Tennesse, Illinois area).
Well that narrows it the fuck down.
Also, Missouri and Illinois are the midwest.
Kentucky and Tennessee are southeast.
I know it's vague, but I don't really want people to pinpoint where I'm from. But there's a little part of the the Mississippi River where all of those states are relatively close together.
dressing up like a monster and scaring people in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night drastically increases your odds of being shot to shit. i really doubt it's someone "playing a prank bro."
>but the spoopy stories are worth
99% rambling on about fucking nothing and then ERMAGERD SPOOGY MONSTAH?
The only dog related thing here is this "podcast" and its boring as fuck stories are dog shit.
>skilled Hunter with military experience 60 yrs old
>shoots dogman 2 times in chest with ballistic rounds that will destroy an engine block/blow open a deer"
>dogman gives no shits
>runs the fuck away
THIS SHIT IS TOO GOOD
Can someone explain what makes the dogmen so fucking ass creepy? Werewolves are pleb tier. For some reason I'm creeped the FUCK out man. Dogmen are spooky as all shit. Holy shit I would probably lose my mind to actually see a dogman.
>incomprehensible appearance; their stature and structure are unlike anything we've ever encountered
>ability to instill an extreme feeling of fear and uneasiness in those who encounter them, described as simply "evil"
>very aggressive overall appearance and stance
IT'S A FUCKING DOGMAN NIGGA, RUN!
Also, very hard to kill. But if you listen to episode 36, there seems to be some idea of how to kill them. But it required them using a bear trap and pumping loads of hand loaded shells into the creature. They appeared to be some dime loads, which could mean that there was silver used.
The whole silver thing is bullshit if you an me, enough bullets should bring down anything flesh and blood. Is there some sort of silver allergy in mammals, particularly canines? That could explain the whole silver mythos
I'm just saying, I'm not sure if silver was used, but the man described dimes laying about and handloaded shells. Since it was back in the day, it was more likely these dimes had a good silver content. Or maybe it's because they pumped shell after shell into the thing, but no one seems to be able to kill the creatures, even with shots to the chest.
Yeah that is definitely a major spool point. If I had the innawoods experience necssary, or just a bunch of highly armed /k/ommandos, I would absolutely try to shoot one of these things to death.
One thing that always puzzled me though is why the creatures never seem to catch/kill people even when they obviously very easily could overpower someone.
Everyone always gets away, even fucking 12 year old girls. What's the deal?
Well, it seems that they are known to be intelligent. And just like humans, most of us can walk past a weaker creature and not harm it. But it seems, they are very much capable, as one of the guests describes a time where a family of 4 was ripped apart and some/both kids were in a tree, mangled. That was supposedly the work of a dogman. Regardless, they are certainly seen as much more dangerous and nefarious then the Bigfoot.
It's a superstition thing. Salt and silver are considered to ward off evil, so people assume they work on any 'evil' creature. In Brazil people sometimes put out a bowl of salt to ward off werewolves. My deceased grandpa apparently saw one once. I call bullshit, but who knows, would be pretty cool if they were real.
I don't actually get the difference between a werewolf and dogmen.
episode 79 is up
"One night, fifty years ago, Marc Strum was home alone, watching television, while his parents were out shopping. Little did he know, he was about to find himself nose to nose, just six inches away from a monstrosity he never knew existed."
tuck in, turn the lights off and get spewky.
I get that it's a superstition, it's just that most superstitions are rooted in some sort of reality or fact.
Also, mythologically a werewolf is a man who has been transformed or has the ability to transform into a wolf. If dogmen are real, they may be the root of the werewolf paradigm. Which would be cool as fuck, but also terrifying.
So every wild man is at least 7 feet tall hunched over, has abnormally long arms, and is able to cover 18 feet in 2 strides, in addition to growling and barking so loud that it's consistently been reported by those who have encounters as "shaking my chest"?
There are photos, and there are many eyewitnesses, some being from upstanding people. And the sightings go back before 1900. Is it a concrete fact that the creatures exists? No, but it also dismisses your "0%" evidence claim.
There's shit-tons of giant tracks. Do you think this guy found 85+ actors/voice actors at a rate of one per week to talk on his show for an hour while making up details of every single story?
They sure as hell believe what they're saying. I want to believe but even if you don't, can you deny that these are some fantastic stories?
>but you can't disprove dog man
What a stupid argument.
>you wouldn't even have the balls to do it.
That doesn't make sense. You sound like just the type of pea brained hick that would believe this nonsense without a single shred of evidence.
>There's shit-tons of giant tracks
Must be dogmen.
>Do you think this guy found 85+ actors/voice actors at a rate of one per week to talk on his show for an hour while making up details of every single story?
Sure. He "pre interviews" them beforehand.
But even disregarding that. There's people all over that "see" Bigfoot and claim to be abducted by UFOs. Yet no evidence. Just stories.
>I want to believe but even if you don't, can you deny that these are some fantastic stories?
They're pretty boring. It's 90% filler.
>There are photos
>and there are many eyewitnesses
Yeah. Like that guy who saw Tupac last week in Vegas.
>but it also dismisses your "0%" evidence claim.
There's literally no evidence of any kind besides just "eyewitnesses". And all they have is claims. So no. It's still 0%.
But while we're at it. Are you into architecture and real estate? There's a bridge I can sell you for an unbeatable great price.
True, the first few episodes I listened to I almost laughed. It's kind of a dramatic announcer voice, but this post: >>17204367 is what really won me over with his hosting and now I'm just used to it.
Nice link, thanks! Episode 67 in Maryland happened maybe 10-15 minutes from me. Didn't realize there were so many north of Frederick. Makes sense though after going out towards Hagerstown.
You don't seem very bright. Your lack of periods and run on sentences also indicates this.
Because I find most of these stories boring I must find all boring? Interesting logic.
You know anon, it's ok to not like something. It's not ok to be a prick. If your online behavior even moderately reflect your irl self, I have a strong suspicion you're a very unpleasant and irritating person to be around die to your condescending attitude.
Ain't nobody perfect anon, not even you! :O
Anon does any of this matter? Spending your whole life to disprove something accomplishes nothing, were birth atheists but it seems you sir are a fedora. Also grammar isn't a measure of Intelligence philosophy is.
>If your online behavior even moderately reflect your irl self, I have a strong suspicion you're a very unpleasant and irritating person to be around die to your condescending attitude.
So terribly sorry I call it like it is and break your delusional bubbles.
Except I'm not sorry.
>Spending your whole life to disprove something accomplishes nothing
Pardon? Posting for 10 mins on /x/ is spending my whole life disproving something?
There is absolutely nothing to show for "dogmen". The idea itself is laughable.
>Also grammar isn't a measure of Intelligence philosophy is.
The fact that your grammar is absolute trash, as well as your childlike logic, is highly indicative that you're, to put it simply, very fucking dumb. It's no wonder you just believe something as fact based entirely on claims with any evidence to back it up.
I have no problem admitting I'm wrong if someone can actually demonstrate some kind of reasonable evidence for "dogmen" existing. I'd find it rather fascinating and exciting. But there is none.
>this much rage because people on the internet you'll never meet like something you don't like
It's ok anon, we've all been there. I remember when daddy took away my allowance and mommy said I had to get a job too. Times were tough. Real tough. Heck, when I ran out of ramen and doritos I was so fucking hungry I ate the cat and told them a dogman did it.
But they found the bones and they knew the truth. They just knew. I think I permanently damaged my mother by eating that cat; when she found the bones she cried for over an hour.
She was a really sweet cat, actually. Helped my mom a lot during her chemo.
They kicked me out, of course. Threatened to call the cops. These days I live under a bridge and just shitpost on /x/ with my 6-year-old smartphone. The leader of our hobo troupe ducks me up the ass before he gives me something to eat. Sometimes I don't eat anyway.
If say these are the darkest times I've ever been in. But you know, there's still some hope. Something that makes me realize that even as bad as I have it, my life could be terribly worse. Something that sends chills down my spine and makes me thankful for my pitiful existence: I could have been you.
>"people are seeing it, finding tracks, and there are photographs, but my preconceived convictions dictate that there is no way such a creature exists, therefore, the former set of evidence is moot"
A friend of mine had an encounter when he was young, he said he was five or six at his grandfather's farm (within five miles of some of the beast of Bray road encounters) and he saw what he described as a wolf walking on two legs towards his grandfather's house. I've had some weird shit happen to me in the woods but no definite dogman "encounters"
I can see it going a few different ways. Might be a government cover-up, as hundreds of people go missing in national parks each year and most of them are never found.
Or the secret could escape and you would have a he'll of a lot of dead rednecks and a few dead dogmen...maybe.
>But there is none disproving or proving its existence anyway.
I suppose the invisible pink unicorn exists because no one can disprove a negative either.
>Also calm you're sphincter.
10/10 quality shitpost.
>finding tracks, and there are photographs
>but my preconceived convictions dictate that there is no way such a creature exists
>I have no problem admitting I'm wrong if someone can actually demonstrate some kind of reasonable evidence for "dogmen" existing. I'd find it rather fascinating and exciting. But there is none.
Never had an encounter myself, but I remember once coming across a forum, and to this day, I genuinely am not sure if the people on it truly thought they were (or were) werewolves and vampires or if this was the single most intense RP forum I'd ever seen.
/X/ is the paranormal board, what do you think people should talk about?
Why did you waste time complaining about people politely discussing a topic that has doesn't effect you in the slightest?
It won't be that bad, they'll probably look like just a big wolf to most people. These things aren't as nice as Bigfoot either, people can sure try to go look for them, but they won't have much luck.
I'll look real quick hold on.
Episode 36. The topic is brought up at about the 50 minute. They discuss a bow hunter who was mauled, then at 1 hour 7 minutes the host describes the family of 4 incident in detail. The whole thing falls under the beast of lbl.
It does go against "common knowledge" and I wouldn't say with a shadow of a doubt that they do exist, but, with so many people seeing them, credible witnesses too, with prints and sometimes pictures, plus the fact that they've been reported since before 1900, says at the very least that there is "something", dogman or not. Plus the man in the costume theory isn't very viable, these sightings happen in more rural places, so people are trigger happy for what goes bump in the night.
that poor woman has a mental breakdown for real, what the FUCK did she see. These are great stories to listen to if you're in the mood for being spooked if you believe in them or not.
if they are real, well thats just fucked.
It's amazing how frequently that Naria werewolf is shooped into pictures.
Probably because they're real life monsters. At least the most a normal person can imagine a monster to be anyway. These are people that have lived in or near the woods for years, some are even veterans of actual war. And they all say that this thing they say was by far the most unnatural, horrifying thing they've ever seen. It resonates in a way that stays with them for the rest of their lives and they can't deal with it.
I don't think it's some alien hybrid or whatever. it has to be just some unclassified bipedal creature. Something left over from a long time ago that's just been forgotten.
They let people get away, like you're not worth the time it would take to kill you. Then you go on living life knowing that these things are out there, but nobody will believe you. I think that kind of scar is worse than any physical one.
listen to this one. this guy lived to be an old man and just hearing the sound of a dog howl makes him go numb. fuck these things. whatever they are
Silver is a holy metal, werewolves are 'unholy' creatures, use the holy thing to ward off the unholy.
Could also be an old-world justification behind the need to hire extortionist 'werewolf/witch' hunters. Silver is a precious metal, not something most people would freely craft bullets and blades from. Someone who is raking in cash town to town 'outing' the evil ones would be able to afford bullshit holy items 'necessary' to kill evil things.
Keeps the competition down if they cannot afford to tool up 'properly'.
>Do you think this guy found 85+ actors/voice actors at a rate of one per week to talk on his show for an hour while making up details of every single story?
this desu. I've been in theater ever since jr high up to college and you can't just make up the stories these people tell on a whim. these people have seen something out there, just the way they mention all the details and where they were and what they were doing. it takes a real encounter for that kind of memory association to take place, you can't fake it.
or it takes 85 different people making shit up on their own. since you're talking about junior high for some reason, think back on the sheer number of kids you knew who told you shit that was clearly made up. "i have a pet tiger" "my dad owns a helicopter but he hides it"
is that so implausible from an adult?
My aunt has a dogman on her property in the kettle moraine area. she says "it passes through about twice a month." She talks about it with such a distant numbness, its scary. At one point she thought it was going to come in through the door. It walked onto the porch, back and forth, almost like it lives to just keep you in a constant state of discomfort.
The worst part she says is the noises. Never heard it, but she said it makes her skin crawl, and brings her heart rate to a dangerous level almost.
I feel bad because she doesn't want to lose the property, but having to deal with that at any given moment kind of ruins it.
I'm not talking about making dumb shit up out of thin air. There's just something genuine in a voice when you hear a story, by the way they recount details and the shaking of the voice.
You can't find monologues that go on for hours in this much detail, much less by amateurs. You can believe what you want, though.
>you can't just make up the stories these people tell on a whim.
The unfortunate thing is that you can. Fiction writers do it all the time. Remember the guy who wrote of his struggles recovering from drug and alcohol abuse? Had millions of people eating it up thanks to Oprah.
I've convinced people of outlandish bullshit, making up a story as I told it. Convinced people who had been in school with me all my life of shit that never happened.
Did the two truths and a lie game as a class ice-breaker, had people believing stories that never happened while blowing off real events.
>wake up at 3am
>hear scratching around the back porch near the woodline
>work up the nerve to open the curtains and hit the lights
>this mother fucker is staring through the window into your soul
if it's all bullshit why is the government buying private land off of citizens where a lot of sightings have been reported? skinwalker ranch and other places like that, some are being fenced off as nature preserves but the public isn't allowed to go in them. why go through all that trouble if there's nothing to hide
More land in govt possession means herding people into cities and maintaining tighter control over them.
Dissenters are tossed in jail as terrorists and land is snatched up easy, by all means available.
Oh and for anyone wondering what they were talking about in episode 2 or 3 or whatever. Vic says something about what people claim to have seen in the mouths of dogmen, but he didn't say it on the show so people couldn't claim they saw it too.
I found a few of the people on facebook he had on the show and they both said it had kind of a double row of teeth, like a shark. Or at least it looked that way, the teeth behind the first row were crooked and jagged and hooked inwards.
Eh. That doesn't make that much sense biologically if you ask me. There's no reason for a creature to have evolved 2 rows of teeth. Regular dogs and wolves do just fine witho ne, no?
Ehh, they really don't look to be exact matches. Yeah, the position is very similar, but not a match.
I managed to find a recording of the howls that were mentioned in episode 51 of the show.
the locals claim that the sound was anything but a human being, and could be heard many times throughout the summer of 2000-2005. A local zoologist who's only heard recordings of the howl thinks it was a human.
The sounds were hosted on the dayton daily news, but the page has been taken down or inactive, but the one i provided above gives a basic summary. If it was a human it was convincing enough to cause all the dogs in the neighborhood to flip shit, and the guy was dedicated enough to do this multiple times a night all summer.
It can't be anything with a light sensor though, they can probably see the trip beam. Which is why bigfoot or dogmen rarely, if ever, get caught on those things. It has to be hidden really well too, and they can't see you setting it up because they'll immediately know something is up.
But yeah, that dude's aunt should try to get something, a recording at least if its making any noise.
>you can't just make up the stories these people tell on a whim
I've done it before. All you have to do is add small details so it sounds like the listener can relate.
Manipulation is easy once you know the human mind well enough.
I've listened to all the dogmen encounters episodes, the one that really got to me was the one where the dogman was stuck trying to get through someones doggy door :X fuck if they can get INSIDE....
Episode 46 around the 1 hour 25 minute mark. I'm not sure if it's the one you're thinking of, but there is an incident in the Land between the Lakes area where police find a campsite trailer in ruins and a little girl impaled up in a tree. Parents both dead in the trailer torn apart.
This was in Defiance, Ohio.
It's a really good episode in addition to that. the guest makes some really valid points about the repercussions of if someone were to actually try and kill something like this or any crypid. How essentially if you were to bring back a head or body part as proof, you'd get slammed in court for mutilating an animal and possibly poaching on government owned land, and everything you did would get covered up before you could go public anyway. He offers some good steps anyone can take to get around this, though. At least to give any regular citizen a chance at showing the public proof without getting into serious trouble with the law.
I'll be making a weeklong trip this June to Michigan and Wisconsin. I'm going to visit areas that have had a higher concentration of sightings in the past. I'll be driving a lot at night while I'm there, and I'll have dash cams in the front and rear windshields recording the entire time. I also have an HD camcorder that I'll be using when I'm out walking in the woods. If I manage to see anything and get it on film, you guys will be the first to know. I'll be sure to make a thread and post anything interesting I find.
Remember to take a weapon with you anon.
According to reports, they aren't so concerned about killing people, but scaring and intimidating them. So stay calm. I'd also suggest that if you go innawoods that you carry a siaga 12 with slugs and 2, 20 round drum mags, but that probably isn't plausible for you, so just bring a rape whistle.
Nightly bump! Most episodes Tbh are kinda boring. They're a lot of filler and background and a short description of an encounter.
Can anyone list the really good ones? Episode 12 was fucking amazing
Good, you should show us first so we can all save the footage or images you find.
But you seriously need to be careful if you do run into one. If you've heard the stories, losing yourself to fear is a real possibility. You need to maintain your focus and NOT look it in the eyes. Once you do that you're going to lose your composure and you won't be able to get it out of your head.
34 is an absolute must
58 and 59
60 is a compilation of the best encounters up to that episode
77 is another compilation episode
I can't remember which episode it is exactly but the one with a woman talking about her farm animals being attacked is really good. Actually all episodes with women guests are good. Most of those get pretty emotional and are good to listen to if you want to get scared.
The ones with guests from the UK and when he's interviewing doctors and veterans are good if you like speculation and lore about these things going back to ancient history.
If you have the opportunity you should get the Stitcher app on your phone and add the Dogman Encounters channel, he put much more detailed descriptions of each episode on there so you can get an idea of which episodes have what.
2 hour special on youtube, not from Vic. If you're looking for other interviews anything with Linda Godfrey is great.
And here's the song that kickstarted it all if you haven't heard it yet. Was originally created as a halloween special by a radio DJ back in the 80's until people started calling in all over Michigan to claim they had encounters too.
If I don't get anything worthwhile, I'm not going to post it.
The only gun I currently own is my Grandpa's 1913 Winchester .22, and that wouldn't do me much good. The most I'll probably bring is some knives, a machete, a hatchet, some of that long range pepper spray (the one that's more of a foam than actual spray), and my propane torch for starting campfires/blasting the face of an unwanted nighttime visiter.
Thanks, I'll do my best not to get eaten.
Like I said above, I only own a .22 at the moment which would just piss the thing off and do me no good. And while I don't own a rape whistle I do have a flare gun. But if shit goes down I'll probably be eaten before help comes anyway.
I've been interested in the Dogman and have been keeping up with reports since about 2007. I have a pretty good idea of what to expect, or as much as I can anyway, so hopefully I'll be able to keep my composure if I do encounter one. I'll probably still be terrified, but as long as I can still keep control and stay as level headed as possible I should be alright. Hopefully if I see it I'll see it from the safety of my car and not when I'm a mile into the woods on a trail.
I remember when the Gable Film was first posted. It scared the shot out of me. Then 2 years later the guy came forward and said it was just him running around on all fours wearing a ghillie suit. Such a letdown lol
Not gonna lie though, I've seen some pretty creepy ass shit while hunting when i used to live there. It would startle all the animals away and it would usually be super quiet. I might post a green or two about some of the events I've had.
Not all of them were when i was hunting, my friend's and I used to live around wooded areas and would go in them at all times of the day.
Sounds like you did your research then. I'd bring along a disposable camera too instead of digital because you can just aim and shoot instead of having to wait for it to power on and focus.
If you're in the car and you happen to see one run after you, it might be a bluff charge as they like to do. I don't know how much you love your car but if you can manage it, let them do some kind of damage to it so you can document that.
It'll be terrifying af, but they don't kill people as much as just spook them really good. they CAN kill you, im sure you've read but those cases, but they are really really really rare. i think youll be okay.
If you're out of your car well, I dunno. I don't have any experience near the woods. Just maintain your focus and try to be brave. the fear and smell they can emit will be deafening but you gotta get what you can get. I really think that disposable camera is the way to go
>It would startle all the animals away and it would usually be super quiet.
Yep, so many people mention this as a prelude to them being in the area. So if you're out there and you can't even hear bugs or birds, some shit is about to go down and you're probably being watched and followed.
This has happened to me so much, a couple of time i would nope the fuck out.
Not the best writer out there, but I'll try my best.

>noticed that no animals were moving around anymore
I didn't even think about bringing a disposable camera, that's a great idea.
And I'll be getting a new vehicle at some point before my trip, but I honestly wouldn't be too upset if it took a bite out of the back end. It'd be a cool little battle scar.

>my dad is a big man and even i could see the fear in his eyes
>listened to him and never went out there at night alone ever again
Not really. Lots of eyewitness accounts, a bunch of fake photos, and some questionable photos. But if you listen to a lot of the eyewitness accounts you can tell the majority of them truly believe what they saw.
So like with all cryptids, it could be real or it could be something else. Who knows.
There have been plenty of wolves that have grown to be fucking huge. If I saw one of these coming at me, I'd probably be just as scared as if it were a Dogman.
Probably a few, yeah. Most sightings do have them on their hind legs though, if not all the time then at least for a good enough portion to be sure.
Episode 66 is fucking crazy though, that motherfucker's uncles are like goddamn beast hunters
I thought that was really interesting too. Especially how the uncles hardcore believed in werewolves.
It's hard to imagine, but what if they're right, anons? WHAT IF THEY'RE RIGHT???
ITS DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE, TAKE THIS.
there's a more intimate sighting map and its pretty current. if you were gonna head into any of those areas.
I bet you eat a lot of tacos Wolfey.
You got some tacos over there?
You have to understand the things people are saying. They tell stories in such detail, you know how something happens to you that's important you remember everything that happend that day. If these were just actors making shit up, you'd be able to tell. Plus a lot of them come from backgrounds where making shit up would get you fired or ridiculed. People don't line up to be mocked just for the sake of it. Saying you see a bigfoot or something is kind of accepted beacuse they're more common. But saying you saw an actual werewolf is a whole nother story.
they have nothing to gain, they arent being paid, the stories are told in amazing detail and you can hear a lot of fear in their voices. You can believe it if you want or not. But as someone who's studied theater for years and went to college for it, I can say that these people would put any professional actor to shame if they're just making shit up on a whim.
Yeah kinda. They have more human like hands and not paws, plus their legs are always described as being like a body builders. And even if a wolf stands on it's hind legs it's not 7 to 8ft tall like dogmen are
Fuck, did you hear the episode that started off with the story about the man hearing a baby crying in the woods as he was walking home?
He keeps walking up the street to his driveway and the baby cry gets closer to the woodline. As he's at his door it's RIGHT there by the edge of the trees. He goes inside his house and locks the door because shit is getting weird and he's got this horrible feeling. A few minutes later he hears footsteps on his porch and the doorknob starts trying to turn. Fuck.. when they try to open doors.
The mimicking of baby cries or a woman screaming to lure people out into the woods is fucked up. These things are assholes
I actually have that map bookmarked, but thanks anyway! I plan on getting a room in Elkhorn, and driving up and down Bray Road several times during the night. Other than that I'm still trying to plot out destinations. I have until June to work things out so I'm in no hurry.
I heard the story where the guy ran into the woods with a baseball bat to try and save a screaming woman, and when he showed up the sound stopped. Then he says he turned around and there's SIX. FUCKING. DOGMEN right there on either side of the path. He says he fucking walked through them and back to his house.
How he didn't just shit his pants and die is beyond me
Yeah the native american guy living in the trailer park. I mean what could you even do in that situation, you can't run further into the woods so you have to turn back the way you came, face these things, find your balls and pray.
>asked for a couple cool things to listen to a few days ago
>some dude recommended dogman encounters
>specifically episode 66
>most laughable, horrible piece of shit acting and roleplaying I've ever heard
>people actually believe in this shit
>host sounds creepier than any houndguy
Hey, it's this anon again. I know this is /x/ and not /o/, but do any of you have recommendations for a good make and model of a small SUV? I want something that's good on mileage and safety, but also has plenty of room in the back for me to load all of my supplies and gear.
Here's an interesting theory as to what the Dogman might have descended from.
I wouldn't put too much accuracy in eyewitness accounts.
A tallish man will look several feet with a pelt on; covered upper arms by a pelt makes the lower ones appear longer.
Distance is rarely reported accurately.
People can make loud noises.
"Shaking my chest" sounds like someone is experiencing anxiety attacks, which will mess with their perceptions -- if they see a wildman in pelts, there you go.
>highly doubt there's men in the wild wearing furs
>must be "dogmen" that have zero verifiable evidence for existing
It's known that there's wildmen living in parks that wear animal pelts.
The simplest and logical explanation.
> I'm going to ignore the fact that every single close up sighting includes a pronounced snout.
Being such a signifying trait if you discount that you might as discount the entire thing desu senpai.
And wolf pelts don't have the head? Wear one with its head on yours, and put yourself in the darkness, and you'll look like a wolf man.
No. But there's been several sightings in parks by rangers, and they're clearly men.
This far, far more likely. Large wild dogs are possible too if it's dark enough.
Look at this faggot. Throw on a fur coat and darkness, and tell me this wouldn't freak the fuck out of susceptible people, and they're be yelling "dogmen".
Misidentification for other large animals in the area, or maybe there really is something unknown to science out there. I just think that with all of the sightings that have occurred over the years, I doubt hobos in fur are to blame. Especially when many witnesses have been trained law enforcement officers, military veterans, and experienced outdoorsmen. All of which are extremely observant to detail, and even in low light conditions could easily tell if they were looking at an animal or just a guy in a suit.
I suppose, but it doesn't make sense that a lot of eyewitnesses describe either being chased by a bipedal canine, or the creature standing up on its hind legs. That's an important, consistent detail that doesn't need to be added to "It was xbox huge." "It was xbox huge AND it was chasing me on its hind legs" is more than just a detail.
>I wouldn't put too much accuracy in eyewitness accounts.
Fair enough. People na be unreliable. But not all peiple, and people having multiple sightings/encounters makes it harder to believe they're wrong every time.
>A tallish man will look several feet with a pelt on; covered upper arms by a pelt makes the lower ones appear longer.
True again. But every mountain man cannot be 6+ feet running around out there, and also have dog legs with a reversed leg joint. Not to mention consistently reported yellow eyes.
>Distance is rarely reported accurately.
>People can make loud noises.
Yes. But these people all day it's a noise unlike any they've ever heard, even experienced woodsmen.
>"Shaking my chest" sounds like someone is experiencing anxiety attacks, which will mess with their perceptions -- if they see a wildman in pelts, there you go.
Nah. They mean the howl or the bark made was so loud or powerful that it resonated in their chest. Keep in mind People who spend a lot of time innawoods have consistently giveb these types of descriptions.
I appreciate you playing devil's advocate but still, I WANT TO BELIEVE
>I can never get over the narrator's smooth jazz voice.
Just started listening, only a few episodes in. Am I the only one who kinda likes his voice? Many seem irritated with his dragged out vowels, but I find it a tad charming rather than annoying.
I took screenshots on my phone, these are from the current NOPE thread.
I like the theory that the dogman may be a variant sub-species of Dinopithecus that has survived in small migrant groups since the late pleistocene. It would explain the average features described by witnesses, and hypothetically, the behavior of an aggressive, but not essentially carnivorous, bipedal mammal.
Episode 67 felt like it had one of the best descriptions of the animal; detailing the stance and postural behavior of the encounter, specifically its 'bluff charge' as defined by the caller. That episode was really engaging.
