Bigfoot observed near Mio, Michigan

There have been numerous reports of Bigfoot sightings in this area. It contains thousands of acres of rivers, lakes, and swamps. Ideal habitat to support a large Bi-pedal creature. Here is one such story.

I dont recall which summer this sighting happened. It could have been the summer of 2000 or of 1999. I still have a hard time believing it myself and the few people I’ve told have made so much fun of it that it makes it even harder for me to believe. I will start with a little background. We live in the southern part of Michigan but my husbands family has a cabin in the northern part near a town called Mio.

After three years of visiting Mio and nearby towns I still dont have my bearings when there,so I cant supply any north,south, east or west directions but if you need any my husband knows the area well because hes been going there since he was a small child. I do know a few names of roads though. This is hard for me to explain but when I saw “bigfoot” I totally dismissed the idea from my head until a few weeks ago. I would even go so far as to say that I forgot about it.

Until recently when I was trying to think of interesting things to search for on the web. For some reason I thought of “bigfoot” and happened upon this site. While reading some of the sighting reports I kept seeing this image in my mind and I would think to myself “now where have I seen this?” Although I have seen shows on TV about bigfoot I still could not recall seeing my image. Then it came back to me.

We were up north for the weekend with friends and we were planning on doing some riding. There are many offroad trails where it is legal to ride ATV’s with an ORV sticker. “Not allowed in southern MI” Well anyway, my girlfriend and I went to town to get some things to cook for breakfast and since we were in town we thought we would go to a popular ORV spot on the opposite side of town called “Bull Gap”. There is a huge hill that is really sandy that everyone rides their ATV’s and Trucks up just to see if they can do it, I guess.

And there are many trails also connected to bullgap. It is stateland. Well we just wanted to see what was going on so we drove there and didnt really stay just drove back there and looked and then headed back towards town on M? 72. We were driving along on the paved 72 just talking about what I dont remember.

When we came around a curve I saw a bigfoot step into the treeline. I immediately interrupted my friend and asked “Did you see that?” she said “What did you see a deer?” I said “no it was big and black” She said it was probably a bear. I kinda snorted and my mind thought that sure as hell was not a bear. I slowed down where I seen the bigfoot enter the woods and told her to look into the trees because thats where I saw it and we both looked and saw nothing.

There was no trail and not even a space in the foliage where it must of entered. It was extremely thick, which made me wonder how it fit through there without making a path or something. I did not state that I thought it was a bigfoot because even saying it in my head sounded really stupid to me. I guess I would have been embarrassed.

Instead I totally dismissed it from my brain until recently. You have to understand that although I had always believed there could be a bigfoot I never imagined I would see one and in my native Michigan no less! I had thought they inhabitted only mountainous areas. After reading your sightings reports though I have went back and reflected on what I saw. Never did I doubt that it was a bigfoot I thought that I had been imagining it or something.

Truthfully, I had not even thought about it at all from minutes after it happened until recently. That seems strange even to me but I rationalize it by thinking that I saw something that my mind simply couldnt comprehend so it just dismissed it. I will now tell you in as much detail as possible what I saw and how I interpreted it. It was definitely a bigfoot and if not,then it was a dream.

I only saw it for a split second as it took one last big step and was gone into the trees. I am not good at judging distances but I guess it would have been about 25 to 30 yards away. I judge its height by the trees that it stepped into and I would guess that anywhere from 10 to 12 feet. It was truly the biggest man shaped thing I’ve ever seen ( It would have blown away the biggest of WWF wrestlers!) I must tell you that I don,t have the greatest eyesight so although It was covered in hair, I  didn’t see the detail of hairs.

It looked just about exactly like the Patterson film bigfoot. I did not get a view of the face. I just saw the outline of the body. It was broad daylight, around 9:00 AM.

The head was smoothly rounded(Which makes me think the hair was so long that it laid down flat, not short and distorting the shape of the head.) The shoulders were so broad that it couldn’t possibly have been a human it had long legs. It was completely black from head to foot(a very solid black). Even from a distance and with my poor eyesight it still seemed massively huge. I’ve never seen anything as big (I cant seem to emphasize this enough).

I have totally ruled out a bear (I knew that instantly) my husband tried to convince me of this, saying that bears sometimes stand on hind legs to get a better view, but if that were true then it couldn’t have stepped like that into the trees. The shoulders stayed level as it stepped into tree line and besides bears don’t have that long of legs. Aside from head, shoulders, and legs I also saw the rounded shape of its buttocks. I have also ruled out a human, even in a suit because of the size of it and the distinctness of its outline.

It appeared to me to have a very firm body. I think this bigfoot could possibly hear my truck coming and was trying to get across road before I came around the corner, which it did. If my eyes would not have been positioned exactly where it entered woods I would have missed the split second view as my friend did. The side of the road it was coming from is where there are plenty of riding trails and I thought maybe since people were starting to show up and ride that it went to the other side of the road to get away from all the riders.

I have since asked my husband if there were any riding trails on the side of road it went into and he said maybe a few but not sure. It could be protected state land where you are not allowed to ride and he also said that he thinks it is swampy on that side. I plan on investigating further on the next trip up north. I will ask the locals if they have ever seen anything and I would like to go back and check out area it travelled into to get a closer look and judge its size better.

I did not stop and get out or anything. I have no desire to have a close encounter with something as big as the bigfoot I saw.

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.

Strange events in northern Michigan

I attended the Bigfoot conference in West Branch Michigan this past April. I met quit a few people there. Some very down to earth folk, and some not so much. But two guys in particular I got to know were Ernie, and Chuck. As typical with these types of town hall meetings the M C in charge asked everyone in attendance if they had any Bigfoot sightings. One of the people that stood up was Ernie. He mentioned the time he saw one cross his trail while hunting on his family property in Northeast Michigan. I could tell by his emotions while he  was telling the story that he seemed quite shaken up by the sighting. Actually, there were a couple of people that seemed very believable and forth right with  their stories, and some, were very far fetched.

Chuck, and Ernie got together during the conference and they  made arrangements to go up to Ernie’s property later that evening. It was  Chuck, and his son, and Ernie and his girlfriend going up to Ernie’s cabin. Here are the details as told by Chuck.

They got onto Ernie’s property late afternoon. Ernie’s family holds a huge expansive property in excess of 1100 acres, with several cabins, barns, and various other out buildings, and many two tracks roads, and lumber trails inter twinning throughout the property. Ernie  decided to use his  4 wheeler to show Chuck around his property and they went as far back as they could, then they walked from there to a nearby cliff and made their way down to the Thunder bay river which runs through the length of the property. Chuck had mentioned how beautiful it was there and it reminded him of the wilderness of Colorado. So as they are walking down this trail it was Ernie, and Chuck’s son ahead of them and Chuck and Ernie’s girl friend coming up from behind when  they heard a loud “Thud boom boom Thud” as if  something heavy had hit the ground, Chuck said it sounded like a big bass drum going BOOM BOOM. They all stopped to give a listen and see if anything else developed. They then decided to do some wood knocks and some whoops. Well nothing came of this and it was starting to get dark so they made their way back to the 4 wheeler. By now it was totally dark and as they were making their way back to the cabin  Chuck was focusing his spot light out into the darkness and catching some eye shine as they went. Mostly it was the local wildlife like deer, and elk, some porcupine, and even a huge barred owl. At this point Chuck said things really started to get weird. On the trail that they had originally came barreling down on, there was a large piece of tree jammed into the in the middle of the trail. This tree was not there when they first went down . They got off  of their 4 wheeler and Chuck tried to get both of his arms around this tree to move it and it would not budge. It was driven, or slammed deep into this trail he figured at least a couple of feet. It was at this point that Chuck noticed a strong pungent,musky sulfur smell right at the spot where this tree was driven into the trail. Chuck knew then and there that this was probably the smell of a Bigfoot  that he had read, and heard so many eye witnesses say they have encountered. His first instinct was to make sure he had his side arm safely on his hip just to make him feel secure. At this point Chuck, and Ernie got back on their 4 wheeler Ernie wanted to show him one of his other cabins he had on his property. Ernie some times stays there when he comes up to visit. The area was completely dark and Ernie was fumbling for his keys to unlock the door when they heard a low  growl. They were not sure if this was some sort of a warning but as luck would have it Chuck’s son was able to record this growl on his I phone.

They eventually headed back to the main cabin to settle in for the night. Later that evening, he figured around midnight , everyone was asleep when Chuck was awoken by a loud knock. He was not sure where it came from but he was suddenly wide awake. As he laid there he heard strange banging, almost  like something was banging on metal not too far away. And there was also sounds of other movement and the scurrying of animals moving in the night. While he is looking out his window he saw a point of light in the back of the woods leading up to the house. It was at this point that he felt real FEAR and  a feeling that he was being watched. Both he, and his son were frozen with fear, but Chuck had the presence of mind to go outside with some of his equipment to try to record what was going on. But this  fear stayed with him. This was something he could not explain but it was like a wave of fear, or being ZAPPED.  It was at this point that the light post along the side door mounted to the house started shaking and vibrating to the point it was tapping on the side of the house. He just stood at the door way observing what was happening right in front of his eyes. While all of this was going on he was listening to something move out in front of him about 30 yards. Moving through the leaves and brush very slowly. He could not see anything because the light post on the house was still vibrating and he could not focus on any object.  He is not saying for sure it was Bigfoot, could of been a deer, raccoon or whatever but the whole situation totally freaked him and his son out.

The next day around 12:30pm they all went back out to the trail where the tree was shoved into the ground. Chuck was curious to see if that sulfur smell was still prevalent but by then it had dissipated. They walked the area one last time for that weekend just to see if there were any other strange things to uncover but that was it for the time being.

Chuck and Ernie said that they would be going back up and try to set up some game cameras and record anything else unusual. I’m sure there will be more of these stories coming up.

 

Bigfoot in Munising Michigan

I want to share  a story told to me by a person I met in Munising back in 2014. My wife and I were vacationing in Michigan’s upper peninsula in September of 2014. We love to travel that time of year after the tourists are mostly gone, the weather turns cooler ,and the trees are starting to change. It’s a beautiful time of year. We drove from our home to Munising in about 7 hours.This area has so much to offer. Boundless forests, many, many waterfalls, hiking trails, lakes, and rivers and an abundance of wild life. Read more
