MONSTER QUEST--Doglike creature

9 posts in this topic

anybody catch the episode of monster quest talking about a Dog like/wolf like creature possible hybrid that has attacked pets and scared people.

of course like most shows they cant prove anything in the end. here are a few of the things they have covered and bit of descriptions its interesting to watch to say the least..even if you dont believe just for entertainment.

Mutant Canines - Mans best friend is many times our last line of defense. But something strange is killing Fido. In 2006, a rash of pets were killed in Maine and Minnesota by a beast locals describe as a mutant. But there are more than just stories, a creature was hit by a car and the body was found. This strange looking creature will be DNA tested to see what it really is. And two MonsterQuest winter expeditions will be launched to trap other dog killers still at large.

Lions in the Suburbs - Attacks by mountain lions make headlines across the U.S. But some people say they are seeing something else...large black cats. From Texas to Minnesota to West Virginia, MonsterQuest will follow the eyewitness accounts and physical evidence of these demon cats. Pictures and law enforcement encounters prove a big black cat is out there but what is it? While they resemble a mountain lion, there is no such thing as a black mountain lion. Bones from a carcass, eyewitnesses claim was a huge black cat, will be put to the DNA test.

Giant Fish - The movie Jaws scared an entire generation off of ocean beaches...but there are monsters lurking in freshwater lakes and rivers too. Are these just fish stories or are they real? From the Artic Circle to the Amazon, MonsterQuest will launch expeditions to find the biggest and nastiest giant fresh water fish. From catfish large enough to swallow kids whole to trout as large as a boat. Scientists will deploy giant lures and underwater cameras in a search for monster fish.

Swamp Beast - The vast swamps of Louisiana and Florida hide many animals...including a beast locals call The Swamp Creature. At 7 ft tall, with red hair, and a rotten egg smell this beast has been nicknamed The Skunk Ape. For the first time, bloodhounds will be used to track the elusive creature. And sexual ape pheromone chips will be used to guide the bloodhounds to their prey.

Stalin's Ape Man - In 2006, the NY times revealed a devilish plan by Soviet dictator Josef Stalin to create monsters by crossing humans with apes. But was it real? And how far did he get? This MonsterQuest scientific journey will travel to Russia to find out. We will also look at the many other efforts, both by man and Mother Nature, to combine the strength of apes with the intelligence of man. This is a real Frankenstein story& from head transplants in the U.S. to cases of ape on human attacks. Man and Apes are not as different as you might think.

Creatures from the 4th Dimension - For decades cameras have been capturing images of a flying, torpedo-like creature. So fast it cannot be seen with the naked eye. Some think it is a military weapon, others believe it may be a creature from another dimension. But just what is it? This MonsterQuest scientific journey will use super high speed photography, physics and even a wind tunnel experiment to shed light on a creature simply referred to as Rods.

Wednesday January 9th at 10PM

The Real Hobbit - A MonsterQuest expedition will deploy researchers and the latest technology into the jungle, searching for evidence of a creature natives describe as half man, half ape.

Wednesday January 16th at 10PM

American Werewolf - Eyewitnesses in Wisconsin and Michigan report seeing a tall hairy man - beast some describe as a dogman...a centuries old legend based on myth, not a real animal. But what are they seeing? MonsterQuest will deploy professional hunters and trackers in an area with recent sightings, armed with a tranquilizer gun. And for the first time eyewitness accounts will be put to the test, using polygraphs and hypnosis&the results will astonish.

They featured Pine River in MN as well, where a guy got bit by a northern smile.gif Also WI where they did show a HUGE jaw of a musky that was found. That thing was unreal.

But the show was kinda "duh" and over sensationalized, but was fun to watch last night while having a few beers wink.gif and joke about it.

BTW - the doglike show, the big cat show, and the freshwater giants show all featured MN. Maybe we just have plenty of mythical or wierd beasts, huh? wink.gif

There was a roadkill found by Barnesville that could not be identified as a wolf or a dog. The fur buyer in FF. had it. A good friend of mine [he runs a trapline]looked at it and thought is was a crossbreed. He was telling me about this and then I told him about the Monster Quest show. It was quite a coincidence. He never saw the show. Anyway Barneville is only about 7 miles or so cross country from Rolog where the show was filmed. So in my mind, theres your monster.

I live and work in Clay County only a few miles from the spot that the History Channel filmed. We were laughing at this. It is good entertainment. We have had wolf hybreds for years in the area. I loved the fact that the so-called wildlife expert they used is a Scheels optics buyer. They never called our local C.O. or our sheriff's office on any reports or sighting of this "creature". But was good entertainment non the less.

my friends in South Texas have the myth of the Chupacabra in Cuero Texas, this October when I was there, the lady who found one actually had the head of this beast on display in a cooler at thier festival.

I believe it was Texas A&M that did a study and it was something like a mange coyote or something, but not fully conclusive, If you search the web for Cuero Texas and the Chupacabra there are actual pictures of this thing.

Did this run on the history channel? I think I knew a guy that spoke on the big fish section...I believe they contracted Ron Schara's filming crew to tape it if this is the same one.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
