Description of event: My wife and I were up near middle creek access road when we came to this clear cut. We got out of the truck to see if we could see any elk. We were out of the truck for about 5 minutes and then off in the distance in the timber we heard something knocking on a tree. We know the sound of a wood pecker and It was no woodpecker. It sounded like a big piece of wood hitting a base of a tree. It would do it for about 3-4 minutes at a time then stop and then do it again each time. It kept getting closer and closer. It got within Id say about 50 yards and we smelt something raunchy. we decided to get back in the truck and leave. It was one of the craziest things I have ever heard. I am a logger and never heard anything like that before and i have been in the woods all my life.
