Bigfoot forces Michigan homeowners to leave prpoerty

NCS Case File #71: Bigfoot Force Michigan Homeowners to Leave Property

Location: Holland, Michigan

Date: Multiple sightings from 2014 – 2017

Submitted by Barry

“We moved to the woods in Robinson township Mi. in 2004. In 2010 I began to notice things happening planters moved or broken. Sounds in the night. I passed the sounds off as birds not remembering birds are sleeping then. 

Over the next few years I became aware of HD’s (Hairy Dudes) living around my home. There was an entire group of them multiple young or small ones and very large ones. 

I became very alarmed and fearful. I decided not to tell my wife. I began to sleep in my clothes and with a 45/70 rifle. 

For 3 years all of my chickens ducks geese and turkeys were killed. All of my fruit was eaten right of my front lawn trees. 

Finally when I heard them on my roof I called a realtor and moved out. I witnessed what sounded like tiger growls and whoops knocks every night when they were around. You can feel it when they are around. 

To many things to go into all of it.”

The witness also included videos of the surrounding area and the property, as well as photos of tree scratches and breaks and a photo of a shadowy figure standing in the trees.  However, the witness requested not to show the photos and videos so we will honor this request.

Three separate Bigfoot encounters in Michigan

I have three encounters with what I believe to be Bigfoot or an unknown crpytid. As told to Squatchable news.

2008-
In late fall I accompanied my wife, daughter, and my mother to stay in a rental cabin near island lake, situated near the manistee national forest in northern lower michigan. As an avid mountain biker I brought along my bike and had planned several rides. The second day of my stay I set off on a ride about 6pm and entered a thick pine/cedar forest on what appeared to be a game trail. After roughly 1.5 miles of riding (I marked a way point on my GPS before entering the woods so I could easily find my way back) I noticed my front tire was very low on air. Shortly after I came to a very small clearing in the woods, it was clear cut purposefully with exposed stumps and new undergrowth. I set my bike against a pine stump and began to repair my front tire. To my right roughly 50-60 yards was a partially destroyed and burnt old RV. Seconds after glancing at it, a very loud thump came from within the camper. All I can describe it is as a “head” appeared in a broken window, which had to be over six feet from the base of the camper. From my distance all I could see was jet black fur and no noticeable ears, the eyes were not noticeable or black as well. It cocked its head to the right slightly as I mounted my mountain bike. I rode off quickly following my GPS map back to my starting point. Whatever it was I saw I believe followed me back to my cabin, as very foul and pungent odor lingered outside the next morning.

2009
For a short time while finishing my bachelors degree my wife and daughter lived with my dad. His house was at the end of a very long drive which backed up to hundreds of acres of woods and a large state recreation area called Waterloo in southern lower Michigan. After my parents divorced my mom who is a nurse moved in with her mother to provide care who lived right next door. December 3 I arrived home from school about 7pm. Shortly thereafter (I lived in an apartment in the basement) I hear a knock on the sliding glass door. It was my mother who looked very disturbed and frightened, and says she has been hearing howls all evening. I assumed coyotes as they were very abundant there. She was unshakeable in her opinion that it was not a coyote. I stepped outside onto the patio and shut off the exterior light. What I did notice immediately was a very strong odor being whirled around in the wind. I waited nearly 5 minutes and then I heard it, it was very near the tree line. Howling like I never have heard from a coyote, deep penetrating bass notes that sounded ragged and throaty. It was very windy and beginning to snow, and the howls seemed to occur in different locations. Due to the snow falling overnight no tracks or signs were observed.

Thank you for reading my encounters, I appreciate your time.

Tee Pee structures from northern Michigan

I have 2 new interesting reports involving teepee-like structures. The first is of a structure discovered on a northern Mich two-track with an EC-like track beside it, and on the previous day there was no structure there. This may be the first time I have heard of a track near a structure.
 
The second case is a teepee structure shown to Igor and me by Chuck Lietzau in a southern Mich park (photos below). The park personnel told Chuck that it has been there with only a few changes for about 20 years. It is quite rare in my experience to have any information about how long teepee structures have been in place. The 2nd photo with Igor in the foreground and close to the camera gives the impression that the structure is only a little more than 6 feet high, but it is actually about 9 or 10 feet. There were some sticks about the size of broomhadles interweaved horizontally on a few parts of the structure.
As to what is the purpose of these type structures, I have no idea, but I have seen photos of several examples.
As opposed to just a few branches stacked up against a tree or interweaved in a free standing structure, these teepees would seem to require a lot of time and effort to gather up perhaps 100 sizeable tree limbs from the surrounding area and stack them in place. It is also noteworthy that these stacked limbs normally do not have side branches attached, or even the stubby remains of side branches.

I attended the third annual Bigfoot conference in Munising , Michigan this past weekend 8/11/2018, held at the local Moose lodge. There were two very good speakers there, as well as a local town hall meeting with some very good stories told. All in all it was a good event.

But I had the pleasure of getting reacquainted with an old friend that lives in the area. She personally has had three different Bigfoot encounters over the years. One of her encounters ended up on a ” Finding Bigfoot” episode.As I was talking to her and catching up on old times, she asked me if I would be interested in going out that night. I said I sure would, and where would you like to take me? She mentioned some activity pretty much in the city limits. She proceeded to tell me that her son, and his girl friend were camped out in this particular area this past July. The first few evenings out there they had heard some grunts, and growls nearby, but they did not think much of it. After another week or so they were in their tent when all of a sudden SOMETHING, was uprooting trees and hurling them around their general area. Her son proceeded to call his mom, my friend, and tell her about this, at which time the girl friend gets on the phone screaming from fright. My friend proceeded to walk the few blocks from her apartment to meet these two kids. Just as she was getting there she could hear the trees being strewn about the area. My friend was surprised that none of the people living in that area was not shocked by all the commotion. But my friend did hear the trees being uprooted and thrown about.

SO that was where we were headed that night. There was four of us all together, and my one friend had his FLIR out ready to pick up any heat signatures, and we all had low level flash lights. We got onto this area around 10:15Pm, and we were planning to sit until only about 12:30Am.This area has a lot of forest are, with high hills to the west of us even though we were technically within the city limits.  So as we sat silently in the dark with nothing but the FLIR scanning the area for anything to move. I want to say it was around 11:30Pm when we heard a very loud crash directly in front of us. We were all on instant alert. My friend had his FLIR pointed in that direction but he did not pick up anything. My friend from Munising just said for all of to remain calm. I know that she was trying to communicate with whatever was out there that we were not there to do any harm. But after that moment we did not hear anything else of significance.

So about 12:30am we packed our stuff up and headed out, but to say the lease it was a cool experience, and some what scary. I am not saying it was a Bigfoot for sure, but on the heels of what my friends son, and girlfriend experienced it was very interesting.

Bigfoot in Michigan’s thumb area

A ‘BIGFOOT’ IN THUMB?

Cindy Barone isn’t sure she wants to call the creature, “Bigfoot.”

But something big, hairy and red-eyed has frightened her family three times since September.

Something out there roaming the farm fields of Michigan’s Thumb area is emitting high-pitched screams by night.

“It’s the unknown that scares us,” says Mrs. Barone, whose family last encountered the creature Friday night at their farm home near Yale in St. Clair County.

Tina Barone, 13, said she and her sister, Roxanne, 12, went to the barn to do chores.

“Roxanne was scared to go into the barn because she’d heard noises before,” Tina said. “I said I would go in first, so I reached in for the light.

“I felt fur.

“At first I thought it was a goat or something, so I took my glove off and I touched it again.

“It didn’t look like anything. It was tall with red eyes and big and black and furry and stood on two legs. It had a deep growl.”

Tina told Roxanne to run back to the house. “It scared me so bad I just had to run.” Roxanne said. “I just can’t put what it looked like into any kind of form.”

Tina said she turned and began to walk slowly from the barn but “it started walking out behind me and I started running.”

The creature never tried to harm her, Tina said.

“It let me touch him when I took my glove off, ” she said. “The horses were running around, they were spooked. But it was just curious, whatever it is.”

The girl’s cousin David, 18, got his 16-gauge shotgun to scare the creature away.

“When it stood there and looked at me, it didn’t know what to do and I didn’t either,” said Barone. “It’s unbelievable. Its big.

“It was some kind of animal but I can’t describe what. It was about 6 feet; 6 or 7 feet 6. I didn’t shoot to kill, I just shot in the air to scare it away. It ran into the woods, making a funny noise.

“It was standing on two feet and had real long arms-between a bear and an ape, that’s what I think. I’ve never seen a Bigfoot, so I have no idea if it was one of those.”

Mrs. Barone, 33, said their first encounter with the animal came in September, when her neighbors’ barn door was ripped off at the hinges.

“I’ve had fences torn down and grain barrels dumped over and eaten,” she said. She said her dogs have raced off into the dark, barking at an unknown intruder, and their farm animals have been spooked by some unknown predator many times.

Mrs. Barone said the family is frustrated by the unwillingness of many people, including the local sheriff to take her story seriously.

Mrs. Barone did file a report of the Friday incident with the sheriff’s department but the report contains no mention of her daughter actually seeing an animal.

“There was nothing in our report to indicate this,” said a department spokeswoman, who speculated that Tina actually felt a raccoon or other small, friendly creature.

But Tina is sure she did not feel a typical barnyard animal. “From now on, I’m going to take the camera when I’m doing barn chores in case I see him again, because no one believes us,” she said.

A mysterious creature – called a Sasquatch, or Bigfoot – that walks on two legs and roams wooded areas from coast to coast has been reported many times from coast to coast.

While there is no documented proof of the existence of Bigfoot, films have been made that reportedly show the creature fleeing into a forest and footprints and other evidence have been uncovered which has led many people to believe the creatures do exist.

“I don’t know what it is but I do know it is something,” Mrs. Barone said.

Bigfoot seen in Dayton Township , Michigan

Lumbering across the country, another alleged Bigfoot incident also occurred on January 4, 1992, this time in the unlikely setting of Dayton Township, Michigan.

Two anonymous men, ages 60 and 44, were driving down a back country road when two creatures, one 7-8 feet tall and 500-600 pounds and the other 5 feet tall and 300400 pounds stepped into the roadway.

The creatures, instead of making a hasty exit, as is the norm in such harrowing adventures, began to approach the vehicle, causing the witnesses to shift into reverse, turn the car and speed off. This incident was covered in the March 24, 1992, edition of the Bay City [Michigan] Times.

Infra sound and its effects

I was talking to my friend Chuck recently on the topic of infra sound and how Bigfoot uses it to confuse, and disorient people, and possibly prey. This is a story that Chuck told me of his personal experience.

 

About 2 years ago, my wife and I were at the botanical gardens and conservatory

near “Irish Hills” in the warm fall.  We knew of a nearby “Tee-Pee” structure

and decided to visit it on the way out to our favorite specialty restaurant, the “English Tea

Garden” in Tecumseh.  The well hidden structure is only about 50 feet off the

road and at an elevation of about 20 feet up a hillside.  I was really looking forward to

the restaurant and anticipating a great meal.

We photographed the structure from all sides and also smaller auxiliary

“blinds” so that the “Forest Folk” could view the nearby human activity.

Lue went back to the car and I intended to follow in about 5 minutes

after taking a few more photos.  I normally leave a gift such as chocolate covered

Reese’s peanut butter cups, but forgot them in the nearby car.

I had been anticipating a great lunch for quite a while.  However, as I started down the

short hillside to the car, I was suddenly seized with a strange feeling of nausea

deep within my body, starting at about the region of my bladder and pushing upwards.  I then had a mild wave of dizziness and stumbled on one footstep.

Quite independently of this, when I reached the car, after telling my wife about

the discomfort, I suddenly remembered the Reese’s treats in the car.  So, I made another

trip up the hillside to insert about a half-dozen chocolate peanut butter cups into

various splits and cracks in the sapling trunks making up the Tee-Pee.  I then turned around

and started to walk back to the car without thinking anything of it.  However, within

3 steps, I was suddenly overwhelmed with a feeling of relief and well being

and not only did the nausea disappear, but my appetite was even enhanced!

It took me a while to connect the nausea and its “more than reversal” with a likely

infrasound experience!

Infrasound can cause vibrations in the eyes, aural canals and effect the nervous system. These can cause hallucinations, feelings of being watched, hearing things, or generally a creeped out feeling. This affects people differently.

So in some of these cases where the Sasquatch told them something, or they may have hallucinated something such as a disappearance or “cloaking” it would seem extremely plausible that infrasound could be the root cause.

Justifying the existence of Bigfoot

Attention scientists! How do you justify NOT seriously investigating the ridiculously obvious and totally inexplicable phenomenon of tree structures in our forests and wilderness areas? Look at the attached picture (one among tens of thousands), and ask yourselves if it may be indicative of something very significant.
Not only can I and others easily provide logical proof that these forest structures are not the work of boy scouts, homeless people, hunters, campers, or hoaxers, but you can easily provide the same for yourself simply by taking a walk through any forest near you with the right habitat.
To your astonishment, you’ll find that a great majority of them could not have been caused by natural deadfall, weather, known megafauna, or humans. Furthermore, you will be dumbfounded by the fact that these structures often change, move, disassemble and reassemble, or simply appear overnight – omitting the possibility of human causation. You will discover that many of them are simply too large, too numerous, too immaculate, and too useless (to humans) to be attributed to any known phenomenon. You will also realize, eventually, that theses structures are extremely well coordinated – traveling in specific swaths/paths through the forest, and reoccurring like letters of the alphabet. Perhaps you’ll eventually think to yourself, “why in the hell did I ever say there was ‘no physical evidence’ of Sasquatch?”
And though I myself am in no particular rush to convince scientists of the existence of these creatures – nor am I seeking to ‘prove’ anything to science – I DO feel the need to highlight the ridiculousness of the pervailing “scientific” stance on this subject. I feel obligated to express how utterly baffled I am at the blatant neglect of such an obvious phenomenon. The fact is that modern science, and mankind in general, has absolutely no way to account for tree structures like those seen in the attached photo.
Only an inexperienced blithering idiot would be ignorant enough to attribute these structures to humans after observing them firsthand. As of right now, each and every tree structure stands as a monument to the bewildering willful ignorance and blind prejudice that occasionally rears its head in the scientific community. They are monuments to how unscientific scientists can often be.

Bigfoot activity from Jackson county Michigan

Jackson County

[COMMENT:  The following series of events reported by R A, out to May 2006. All occurred in SW Jackson county.]

Jackson Co.Nov 2001  –  Eight Foot Tall “Something” Seen from Deer Stand

From: R A  Date Received:  Mar 2, 2002

Two weeks before firearm deer season I was sitting in my tree stand studying what deer were coming through and I noticed something dark and tall standing near a fifteen foot maple tree just barely outside my property. It wasn’t there before and I noticed it had a human like form but with all the brown tall swamp grass and brush I didn’t think it was anything. From four to five pm it was there and I noticed it didn’t move. But I heard a three point buck and a year old doe moving in from the north behind my stand. I turned to watch them. They were skittish and they disappeared in brush and I turned to see where they went and the object [had] disappeared away from the [fifteen foot maple] tree.

I estimated the creature’s height was eight to nine feet tall. The weather was clear and plenty of sun. I went out where the creature was, a day or two later, but didn’t find anything. I guess it was curious about what I was doing up in the stand.

Jackson Co Mar 29 2002  –  “I Heard a BF Yesterday”

I was down back picking up fallen limbs when I heard something very large walking though the dried leaves on my neighbor’s property. It was too big for a deer or dog and my neighbors don’t roam that area during the spring, just the fall during deer season. It stayed in the swamps and brush for fifteen minutes before I couldn’t hear it moving around. I was slightly spooked but I think I surprised it as well as it surprised me.  Also several nights this week, when the temps was in the thirties, I would get home and feel something watching me out in the brush by my bird feeders.

Jackson Co  May 7, 2002  –  Subject:  Footprint Found

Today I found an old footprint in the brush on an old deer trail down back near the back channel. Based
on the weathering on the print it has been out there probably a week or two ago. It didn’t have any form except for the basic outline of a right foot. No toe definition.

Jackson Co May 31, 2002  –  Foot Print Found; Three-Foot Tall  “Monkey” Seen

The foot print was in the mud down in the back channel. No one has been down in the channel for a couple of weeks so it was new. It was partially silted over due to the rain we had a week or two ago. My sister in law Kris saw what she termed as a three foot tall Monkey near Thorn Road a few miles from my house. She saw it at 2 am a week ago and she said it ran like a human on two legs. Since she doesn’t make up things like this I believe her. Maybe a toddler bigfoot?

Jackson Co 26 Jul 2002  –  Watched While Mowing?

Yesterday when I was finishing mowing down back by the creek, I had a very bad feeling that I was being watched from several spots around me. Over the noise of the mowing I kept hearing something thrashing the brush or knocking. I was only down there for forty minutes but it lasted for twenty to twenty-five minutes.
_________________________

Jackson Co  Jul 28, 2002  –  Something Walked Thru

Something walked through the back last night during the storm. Based on what I could see (an outline) of a right foot, shaped like an overgrown human foot with an arch and from the way it rained, the water flow and debris, it was in no hurry to cross from the grassy area to the deer path closest to the wood shed. IT was going into Green’s swamp and the print was only five to seven feet from the path. Also the dimensions were at least fifteen inches by ten (?) inches and there was a barely outlined one paralleling the fence line ten to fifteen feet from the first one, heading in the same direction to the deer trail. I assume
it’s the juvenile.

Jackson Co  Oct 4, 2002  –   Good Look at a Bigfoot

The Sunday I was mowing down by the apple trees and brush piles, I spotted a large bigfoot out in the shadows and brush next door. It was 3:00 pm and dark clouds overhead, but I did get a good look at one who was standing a good thirty feet inside the neighbors land. I kept mowing and it stayed where it was at, and I got too nervous to finish up, so I went back to the house. Before I left I thought I may have spotted another one in the brush and trees near the bridge on the neighbor’s side. I don’t know why they were there, but they made me a little uncomfortable being there. Nothing since then. _____________________________________

Date: Jan 4, 2003 –  Tried Grunting at Bigfoot

This summer when Junior [R A’s name for a local Bigfoot] was a little aggressive I tried grunting and all I got for my troubles was a brush thrashing and wood knocking. That’s why I don’t really do it. I think it may be the second juvenile that I saw in November who was trailing me.
___________________________________________________________

Jackson Co 17 Nov 2002  –  Juvenile Sighting

I did see a small juvenile BF about 4:30 PM Friday when I was in a blind near the back creek. It was standing on the edge of the woods/swamps and stood there staring at me for a good half an hour before it disappeared. I noticed there was no animal activity in the area all the time I was there. I didn’t see any adults and it was about three hundred feet from me. It was cloudy and visibility was very good. I think it was about five ten to six four. It appeared right after [my neighbor] Mr. Green passed through the area (approx. half an hour).

Jackson Co 8 June 2003  –  Recent Sightings on the Property

A week ago I was mowing down back near the old tree stand when I noticed something very dark brown through the brush looking west towards Green’s fields and it was moving back and forth maybe about thirty feet either way. I know it wasn’t a deer because of the height and width of it.  I warned my sister-in- law when mowing to keep her eyes pealed towards the swamps on the neighbor’s property because that’s where the BFs were seen last year. I also warned her to keep her four and seven year old away from the brush.

I have a suspicion that they are using the back channel [part of a local stream system] for a route now, since I know their routes into the property during the daylight hours. The channel area where its heavily brushy and thick trees.

I also had that feeling that I was watched maybe three weeks ago too.  They are moving ever so slowly right now. I know they’ll be [coming] through [here] when the blueberries are in season. They are loaded this year.

Jackson Co  3 Apr 2004  –  Junior Is all Grown Up

The last time I spotted Junior last summer, he was an eight foot tall adult and behaved like an alpha male. Wood knocking and brush thrashing. I haven’t seen any evidence they came through my back area but I
suspect they have been using the back channel area as an entry point.
___________________________________________________________

Jackson Co 01 July 2004  –  Top of Bigfoot’s Head Seen in Brush

I had a interesting encounter yesterday. While mowing near the top part of the channel next to my wood shed, I noticed a top of a head in the brush about twenty feet into my neighbor’s property. It was very noticeable since the brush was about ten to eleven feet tall and the crown of the head was out in the open with no brush behind it. The creature stood there the entire time I was moving and probably thought I never spotted it. It wasn’t aggressive but passive as if wondering what the heck I was doing. I guess they are checking out the area for blueberries. My bushes are about two weeks from being loaded with ripe berries and I guess it wanted to check it out, but I was there. I checked the spot and it looked like something was there but didn’t break any dead branches or bushes. They say curiosity kills the cat…. But it shocked me to see one about eleven feet tall.

Follow on Message, 3 Jul 2004:

I went to the spot where I saw the creature the other day. Initially when I investigated the spot where I saw the creature. I followed a clear path made by deer and stood where it stood. No hair or scat but it was standing on a mound two feet high so my eleven feet estimate is down to eight to eight and half feet tall now. It had thick brush with no thorns and it was an ideal hiding place to watch me. From what I noticed it was one solitary animal not the normal two or more. I didn’t smell anything but a musty swamp scent.

Jackson Co 27 Aug 2004  –  Top of Bigfoot’s Head Seen at 50 Feet

I had to take some corn down to the bait piles down back at 7 pm when I noticed a BF standing in the brush where the last one did last month. All I saw was the top of its head. I kept on walking trying to ignore what I saw when it followed me and stopped by a deer path twenty feet to the left of where it stood previous. Its fur looked like grayish brown but when I saw it the first time it was dark brown. I think since I always notice they move in pairs maybe there were two not one. I didn’t see them move but they moved away from me deeper into the swamps and stayed away from me. They were about fifty feet from me. I was a little unnerved by the encounter since it’s nearing the time they tend to become a little aggressive. _______________________________________________________________________

Jackson Co 16 Feb 2005  –  Found Two Prints Today

I went down back to see if the BFs came through the area. Two tracks were found in the far back [water] channel. The creature tried climbing up the bank. Its left foot left a partial print of the upper foot and its right slid down leaving a heel slip. My in-laws are tapping maples and I found where one BF stood watching them from an old spot from last summer. They are curious and still using their favorite hiding place to observe us.

Jackson Co 19 June 2005  –  Watched by a Small BF

I was mowing down in the far back part of my property near the southern property line near Green’s and my other neighbor. It was standing in some thick brush but I could make out its eyes, which were hominid like, nose (flat like a chimps), and mouth (which I could see its incisors). It was in an area where I haven’t seen much activity in four to five years. I estimated it stood about six foot tall and I had a bad feeling I was being watched. I caught a glimpse of its whites in its eyes before I noticed most of the face. I didn’t see most of its head but it stood there watching me mowing for a good forty minutes. It didn’t show any brush shaking or tree knocking.  Probably a very curious juvenile.

Jackson Co 30 Jun 2005  –  The Smell of Waste

A week ago in the same area [where] I had the encounter with the juvenile BF, I smelled a scent I can only describe as an outhouse smell. It smelled like a human and it radiated from two places. One near the farthest deer blind, and [the other] the area near where I saw the [juvenile] BF. It struck me kind of odd that [it] smelled like someone took a dump near the blind. It wasn’t anyone I knew who would have done it, so I was wondering if a BF has that smell. I eliminated Green’s fertilizer because he uses cow manure, while this had a definite human smell to it.
___________________________________________

Jackson Co 27 Jul 2005  –  Small Footprint and Odd Occurrences

It was 8 by 4 inches located near the cedar tree in the “L” [shaped clearing] by the cabin. It had to be a small [BF] child because of the size and had to step in the only dirt spot in a grassy area behind the tree by the brush.

Last week I went down back to do something other than mowing and I was heading back to the bridge when I heard a five gallon bucket banging on the brush about ten to twenty feet from me in our dump. I called out if it was one of my in-laws and no answer. It continued until I reached the bridge when it abruptly stopped. I know we dumped a few buckets back there and we gathered up most to use in the dam but the sound nearly sent a cold chill down my spine.

The other occurrence has been happening on and off for the last few weeks. From my front room window from the recliner near my bedroom door I see a dark object standing out in the swamp across the [water] channel from the house. It stays there for a few moments and leaves, leaving a light (shaded) area where it stood. It happened again tonight and I noticed it only stood there for maybe ten minutes before it disappeared. And I thought I saw something big walk by the burn barrels and disappear for a brief moment. I looked out and saw only a rabbit. I think something is close to the house since my barn cat and her nearly grown kittens, [which] used to stay down at the barn, now stay close to the house. This hasn’t happened in quite some time and I was wondering if a new creature moved in without the others knowing about it. The others tend to move in and out of the area without being noticed and leaving a few clues but this one has taken a keen interest in the house.

I’m not afraid but it concerns me that today [when] I placed my game tracker at the site of the small left footprint maybe I opened a can of worms with this one. I went down back last night and took a piece of wood and did some wood knocking to see what response I got. I thought better of it after a few minutes because of the bucket incident but I did get some rustling in the brush in the swamp where the bucket incident occurred.. And I do get that being watched feeling every night. I come home from work around 1230 am.

Jackson Co 5 Aug 2005  –  The Small BF is Back Again

I took a photo of a small partial footprint in a turkey dust bath in my deer plot down back. It was maybe twenty-five feet from my father-in-law’s deer blind. It seemed to be walking from the far back [water] channel towards the brush pile. When you wrote me last about the BF I saw out my front room window, (to answer your question) the creature couldn’t see the TV.
