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.

Bigfoot Discovery days in West Branch Michigan 2018

I just came back from my second time attending the Bigfoot Discovery Days, in West Branch Michigan. It was a terrific event in that we had several good speakers, including Dr. Jeff Meldrum. He actually gave two talks one in the morning and one later in the afternoon. I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with him the Friday before the event, and I want to say what an honor it was to be able to pick his brain on all things Bigfoot. He had many good stories and approached the topic of Bigfoot in  a very scientific manner. So if you ever have a chance to speak to Dr. Meldrum, one on one it is time well spent.

In addition there were local speakers there  discussing their   encounters and observations, as well as a good ole town hall meeting that was riveting with personal encounters from people around Michigan.

And to top all of this off we ,( Chuck, Ernie, Jagr, and myself ) part of Michigan Sasquatch Project met a lot of real nice people at the conference that we will stay in touch with and share stories and knowledge.

This is a foot print found in one of Detroit’s metro park in December of 2017. This print was found near some stick structures.
