    Me, I'd have to say cleaning a gut-shot deer after finding it a day later. The gut smell was bad enough, but as I cut, I hit a huge cyst that was full of hideous smelling vanilla pudding-looking goo that exploded all over me face, coat and hat.

    What you got?

    A fridge that was discarded that had lots of food in it.

    10x worse than a gut-shot anything, I promise.

    Oh...wait, maybe it's a tie. I hit a large, dead, bloated dog once with a bush hog. The bad part was that the splatter stayed in the deck and the stench stayed there for a while.

    This grocery store I used to work at had a tallow truck that would come to pick up the meat dept's scrap barrels, :ack: but far worse was when they would get their grease traps pumped out....

    A freezer that had power lost for weeks. The smell of putrified seafood was worse than when we found a dead guy floating so long his skin was sloughing.

    Sorry, you asked.

    Shot about 20 alligators in a reservoir at a duck camp in Sabine Pass many years back (when shooting gators was very illegal). They were a dangerous nuisance to our duck blinds nearby, so we popped them and that was that.

    Until about four days later when they bloated and came floating up to the surface. Since they were easily visible from the air, we feared tha Game Warden would see them from one of their helicopter patrols, so we did what we had to do - go back out there, gut shoot them and re-sink their bodies.

    The smell was was hellish! I remember burning our clothes that night and even after several showers not being able to fully get rid of the stench!

    A sock that had been constantly urinated on in a dark, warm place for months. I've smelled some terrible things, but that (so far) is by far the worst.

    A couple here I could relate to But I once cleaned up a hog farm that had gone feral, shovel the carcasses into 55 gallon drums and dump them in a pit, in July. From recent to months old small porkers to 300#ers

    That or with a heavy wind blowing away from you, so you don't notice until it stops and you find that the tree a few feet away is home to a vulture's nest.

    My neighbor's rotting corpse after she had been dead about 3 days. Her daughter knocked on my door one afternoon a couple of years ago to ask if I'd accompany her into her mother's house. She hadn't talked to the woman for a couple of days and feared the worst. She was right.
