A Ghillie Suit Hoax?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on December 30th, 2012

In a new post at her blog, Real Wolfmen author, Linda Godfrey, begins:

“First there was the infamous ‘Gable film’ video that purported to show the Michigan Dogman in attack mode, and then we had the tragic case of the Montana man fatally struck by two vehicles while dressed in what he hoped looked like a Sasquatch costume. Both of these rather bad ideas had one thing in common – – the perpetrators wore ghillie suits.

“The ghillie suit, common wardrobe gear for hunters, is a ragged, head to toe covering made of camouflage fabric. It seems to be the latest fashion of choice for anyone seeking to hoax large cryptid sightings – – and has also now provided one Wisconsin law enforcement agency a possible explanation for an otherwise unexplainable encounter.”

As for what that encounter may be, read on!

    It does seem to be the fashion of choice these days.

    However, I’ve seen ghillie suits and people in them, and I’m going to say it’s like bears and people in coats–unless you’re at long range if you get any kind of time to look, you’re gonna figure it out and see it for what it is…I don’t buy that the bulk of Bigfoot sightings are hunters in ghillie suits. It may account for some people’s sightings–maybe especially people who’ve never seen a person in them, but I’m guessing that’s a minority.

  2. graybear responds:

    Obviously, before this can hit epidemic proportions, the government should outlaw ghillie suits, especially those intended to be used for killing game or for other deceptive and possibly lethal purposes.

  3. DWA responds:

    People in ghillie suits may be having fun. But they aren’t a significant factor in bigfoot sightings.

    “Ghillie suit” is often the instantaneous response of a witness who, when he gets a better look, realizes that this in no way explains what he’s seeing.
