Bigfoot encounters in northern Michigan

So here’s the short version and recap of the adventure at his property, first off its huge massive and completely private they own 80 acres one way and like a thousand more acres curving around with so many trails old logging roads ect. I mean like there are three different cabins out there not including the house and barns it was amazing they have a couple 4wheelers but since it was getting late he drove us around on a side by side way deep back to as far as
The machine could go then we walked there was a cliff we made our way down to the thunder bay river which runs through his property the scenery was beautiful I felt like I was in Colorado with view I took plenty of pics and video first thing that we observed well me and his girlfriend Michelle both heard a loud thud boom boom thud as if something heavy hit the ground imagine a big bass drum boom boom twice Ernie and my son were ahead of us thrashing through the forest ahead of us they both never heard it. Did a couple of wood knocks and a couple woops but nothing came of it, it was now getting dark very fast so we made our way back to the side by side to head back and now it’s dark I mean super dark I brought to spotlights and the 4×4 had lights so we cruised back along the trails to get back to the house it’s pitch dark I’m catching eye shine everywhere mostly deer and elk saw porkipine elk deer huge white barred owl anyways it begins to get weird at this point so heading back on the trail we come flying down and there’s a huge piece of tree slammed right in the center of the trail so figuring this was not there when we drove in we get out I couldn’t with both hands budge it it was slammed in the ground so deep I’d say few feet it was odd but the exciting part was for the very first time I smelled it. There was a very strange pungent musky almost sulfur or. BRim Stoney smell it was thick and right there at the spot where the tree in middle of trail was I got excited because in my brain I new what that smell was we’ve all heard it from so many people’s encounters of what that smell was told him to grab his gun he had ar15 pistol he was spooked we got back in drive around it and headed back he stopped off to show us another cabin site where he stays camped in the past it was locked and dark when he used his keys and opened up the door we heard a growl low growl but my son caught it in record from his phone bizarre then we eventually went back to the house I heard one loud knock around midnight and strange banging like metal several times that night weird noises and of course animals scurrying about at one point I saw a light in the back of his woods leading up to the house don’t know what that was either no sightings no prints but I experienced fear by the house and a feeling of being watched it was spooky and another strange thing was when the fear set in to me and my son he stayed inside I went out with some equipment but I honestly got a feeling of fear this I can’t explain either the light post along side the door to mounted to the house started shaking and I watched it shake like vibrating enough that it was moving and making a tapping noise while I stood at back door and watched it the whole time this happened I was hearing something about 30 yards or so out from me walking moving through the leaves and brush slowly I couldn’t see anything the light was shaking which I’m not saying it was a Sasquatch because I don’t know it was and probably just raccoon deer or any animal. and I got freaked out I was alone Ernie and his girlfriend went to bed my son was pacing inside looking out the windows watching me it was real
Bizarre but It was a very exciting night we stayed til 1230 ish and left we went back to the area where that tree was placed blocking the trail just make sure that the smell we encountered last night wasn’t a normal smell in that area when we went back no smell of any kind it was super cold an rainy we walked a few miles today saw nothing I just got home hour ago and thought it write you to share one crazy night

Bigfoot sighting in Caseville Michigan

This encounter comes from a Michigan researcher, Bob Dagle. I have permission from him to republish this tory from his book, ” Reports of Bigfoot/ Sasquatch in Michigan”.

Anyone that is familiar with the state of Michigan, and more specifically Caseville, would know this is a small, quaint, town in Michigan’s thumb area. And each summer it has a ” Cheeseburger festival” that people from all over the state comes to for fun, food, and a great party. But there is more to Caseville than just that. This story comes to us from a witness, name not disclosed, occurred in the summer of 1968 around 10PM with the weather condition clear, calm, with a full moon.

Here is her story: When I was a young girl we  would go to Caseville every summer fro two weeks. I was about 12 years old when this sighting occurred. One night there was a ” weenie roast” on the beach and several families who were renting cabins were invited. Usually the beach was deserted at night. The moon was very full, and it was late as the sun was completely set.

I was on the beach standing by the campfire with a group of kids when a boy, and girl came running down from the sand dunes. The boy was excited, and yelling “we saw a witch”! A witch tried to grab us! There’s a witch up there. He was shaking, wild eyed and seemed very scared. He explained that he and the girl with him had been walking on a path in the sand dunes when they (quote) ” fell into a hole”. The witch had set a trap , there was a hole covered with branches and we did not see it. When we stepped on it, we fell in, then the witch came up to grab us just as we climbed out to run away. ( I realize now they probably fell into the creature’s den, and it returned to it to see what was up).

 

Scientific discussion on stick structures

This is a scientific discussion from a friend of mine. Dr. Chuck is what I will refer to him as. But he makes some valid points concerning Bigfoot, and the making of structures.

I believe that it is useful for us to do what we can to create as “dependable” a history as possible of
the “unwrapping” of the Bigfoot history, and that includes associated phenomena such as
stick/branch/tree-structures and related figures regardless of size. Perhaps Janice and Robin can comment
on how far back they were aware of such constructions which may predate their mentioning them to you.

As you know, some of the current “authorities” cast a “jaundiced” eye on the suggestion that the existence
of stick/branch/tree structures is due to creative activity by forest creatures, rather than by wind, snow and ice
weight, or other natural but inanimate sources. However, establishing the reality of branch structures as
creations by forest creatures is a far more scientific task than just a matter of “acceptance” or “rejection” by
self-proclaimed authorities.

If a construct involves “imported” branches, then, automatically, intelligence or purposeful action, must be
involved. The “purposeful” constructions of muskrats and beavers are well known and follow characteristic
patterns. They are famously located in association with ponds and streams, and rarely involve more than
basic interweaving, if at all. Gorillas, are not renowned for spontaneously producing such structures, despite
having the intelligence to do so, (as they have displayed in the learning of sign language in Gorillas and
laboratory talk” in Bonobos), as well as the weaving of sleeping nests in nature and having been observed
to tie simple knots. Fortunately, there are no known native primates to consider in the U.S., Russia,
Australia, Canada and the British Isles, and many structures are simply outside the physical range of larger
birds such as the Sarus crane which is quite common in the U.S. Bears will sometimes move branches into
simple piles for a hibernation nest but real interweaving is not known.

It will be generally harder to prove that only humans or Bigfoot can build the small scale structures. On
the other hand, for the very large-scale structures, the potential list of perpetrators is quite small, especially
on continents where elephants are not endemic. So that leaves only Humans and ‘Squatches as suspects
for the several types of stick/branch/tree structures that have been so widely documented. The possible role
of humans has to be evaluated both psychologically and practically, (such as considerations of tree weight,
frequency of structures, and wide distribution in both common and truly unlikely places).

For too long, we have fallen for the “UNSCIENTIFIC” fallacy that if the origin is not yet proven, an unusual
phenomenon must be man-made. Currently, if the source has not been documented in the act of producing
the structure, or the source is unproven, then the commonly “accepted” “scientific default” position is
erroneously believed to be either “Human” activity or misidentification. However, such a “supposedly scientific”
position IS NOT a valid scientific conclusion! Unknown” scientifically, MEANS “unknown,” period.

Many of our well known phenomena were once jeered at by “pseudo-scientifically thinking but ‘professional
scientists,'” (e.g. “rocks” “falling from the sky); the sun being a mass of molten lead powered by colliding
meteors (until “nuclear power” was accidentally discovered); the glowing filament of a light-bulb which did not
develop by gradual improvement of the candle but the reproduction of a natural phenomenon once outside of
our understanding or control.

So far, every so called “skeptical” explanation I have read is “scientifically invalid” since the suggested
“solutions” have never been tested. Why is it that the only skeptical “retort” to a (so-called) ‘Foot running
across the road in 3 strides is a “misidentification” of a bear. (A first hand eyewitness may have excellent
observational conditions and abilities, i.e. daylight and a highly experienced bear hunter.) Can’t the
“skepdeniers” be creative enough to at least claim them to be Humans in costume? And if so, where are
the “skeptics'” scientific experiments featuring humans in costume crossing a normal 30 foot wide roadway
in 3 steps as is frequently reported for ‘Squatches? Can a bear or hoaxer duplicate such ability?

It is scientifically invalid to propose such an hypothesis without CONDUCTING an experiment proving that
the “skeptical proposal” is a valid alternative, yet the “so called” “skeptical journals” fail to provide the
required experimental evidence. Even though our current scientific consensus offers rewards for such
“pseudo-scientific explanations,” they have never presented a critical paper denying a phenomenon, that
included the scientifically required experiments! Additionally, rewards are given to “skeptics” who weren’t
even there and therefore are in no position to criticize a detailed report from an experienced observer with
a clear view for observation! Why do we continue to let them get away with “non-sense” and “non-science?”

As for stick structures, even some highly respected ‘Foot investigators still claim that they are all “natural
accidents.” However, valid science has to respect the scientific method.

While some Ph.Ds. would consider these constructs to be “coincidental,” the true scientific method says
otherwise. A scientific fact must be statistically valid. That is, “what are the chances of this occurring at
random?” If the chances are smaller than 1 in 20 or p < 0.05, (equals 5/100 or 1/20), and a discernible characteristic of interest is present, in this case the geometric figure called an asterisk, something other than random distribution, (the Bell-Shaped curve) is at play. Anything outside of 95% of the population is considered "abnormal" and requires an explanation other than pure chance or coincidence. Even more so if the phenomenon is regularly duplicated as above. Notice that in each case above, the 3 main components of each structure overlap within their respective branch diameters. This is an extremely small target with a length/width consisting of only a small fraction of the total lengths of each of the 3 branches, 2-3 inches for the thickest of the branches. In both of these structures, the individual branches are approximately 6 feet or more in length. For convenience’s sake, lets use 3 feet which would provide 3 x 36” or 108 inches. Conveniently by my choice of a conservative example of 3 feet in length and a target width of 3 inches, this provides 12 chances of 3-inch target areas per branch. However, since the geometric shape requires overlap at the center only, there is actually a preferred central target-area-in-waiting of 3 inches on the first branch which would be achieved by a second branch landing at the center of the first regardless of wherever it was on the second. An overlap of the centermost 3-inch segment of a second branch anywhere on the first would establish a random, (equals non-target) geometric figure with a likelihood of only 1 times 12 but would only form a geometric figure such as a cross or "X" by overlapping the centermost 3-inch segment. This likelihood would be 12 times 12 or 1 in 144 chances. While the chance of pulling an Ace of Hearts out of a deck of cards is 1/52, if this is the pre-announced target, and that is what is pulled, then it is statistically significant. After returning the Ace to the deck, pulling it out a second time at random would only happen 1 in 2,704 times! Clearly, pulling the Ace of Hearts 3 times on demand would be so extremely rare that science would presume that there is some mechanism other than chance at work. (True, every card has a 1 in 52 chance of being drawn, however, collectively, drawing a non-Ace of Hearts would provide a likelihood of 51/52 or p = 0.98, far greater than 0.05 or 5% considered as the “normal” cutoff.) Similarly, having 3, three-inch central areas of branches overlapping exactly at the center would be far more rare than even this. The overlapping of the 3 would have only a p = 1/12 x 1/12 x 1/12 or an 1 in 1,728 chance. This allows us to accept slightly imperfect examples and still be far beyond the p < 0.05 level for statistical significance. Also, the previous calculations do not even take into account the additional factors of the 3 components overlapping in the same plane and making contact. The scientific method indicates that statistics is the only way to determine the chances of an occurrence. The insistence that "professorial judgment" is the final "determiner" is nullified by the scientific method. While keeping each kind of data in its place, let's no longer fail to recognize when the scientific method proves the criticism of the "skeptics," or even academic Bigfooters, wrong. Furthermore, since many scientific discoveries were not even dreamt of before being recognized, let’s not arbitrarily decide what we will or will not “accept." Rather, with suspended judgment, let us await new, totally unpredictable, "scientific discoveries”. Certainly, some categories such as repeated eyewitness reports of physical subjects by skilled observers under excellent conditions have a greater likelihood of eventually being raised to the level of scientific fact when appropriate evidence becomes available. However, it is not scientifically defensible to "dismiss,” out of hand, reports of other phenomena being responsibly reported but not yet scientifically verified to exist.

I was at Mammoth Cave like 15 years ago, but wasn't even thinking about Boogers. We saw a coyote on the riverboat ride, and the guide said there were no bears in Kentucky. He was either mistaken, or black bear have moved back in since then. Interesting.Very cool!Wow. Reply Reply all Forward

Bigfoot observed in the town of Fowlerville

Posted: 2018 September 18,

2018 September 16, 3:45A Fowlerville, Livingston County, Michigan
It was looking straight at my car. A listener writes “Hello Wes, This happened a couple days and it’s the only thing that’s been on my head for past few days. Just a little background I’m an overnight security guard for a company in Michigan and I watch their equipment over night. Well on this particular night I was located in a rural area south of a town called Fowlerville. Well to recount my encounter it was a little before 3:45 am because at my job we report every hour at quarter to because we only had one guard per site. Any who I was facing my vehicle that I was in towards a clearing that leads into a field nearby and I was watching videos on my phone and I look and see two deer come into this clearing so I watch them for about 2-3 mins and all of a sudden they darted backing in forest on the other side they came out from with their tail in the air and I went back to looking at my phone.

Then out of the top of my vision I see another figure move and I expected to see another deer but what I saw was no deer. What I saw was a “creature”. When I looked up it was looking straight at my car and instantly fear washed over me, my eyes started watering, I had shivers going all over me and i wanted to throw up. I couldn’t stop staring at this thing and about what felt like minutes but was probably seconds it went in the direction of the deer. To describe this creature, it was like what I was looking at shouldn’t be real. The thing had to be about 2 and half to 3 times taller than the deer it was chasing. The eye shine I saw off this creature was very intense, with a Amber to a reddish look to them. The thing had dark brown to black hair, it was hard to tell because of the time of day, and the face and hands were close to a tan from what I saw. The weird thing is that it had hair, it wasn’t fur, it was like if someone had long oily hair all over their body. Sadly I was too full of fear to actually get a good look at it’s face. I’m not actually sure if saw me or was just surprised my headlights were shining on it. After words I decided it was probably a good idea to have my lights on for the rest of the night. I really appreciate finally getting this off my chest, I’ve kind of had a feeling something undiscovered but to see it myself. I almost wish I kind of didn’t see it.

Infra sound and Bigfoot

Sometimes in the Bigfoot community you may hear researchers and witnesses talk about being “zapped”. The zap they are referring to is in fact infrasound. I think it is important that we have a basic understanding of infrasound and what it can do.

So today I wanted to take a little time and talk about infrasound. First, I guess we need to understand just what infrasound is and how it works.
Infrasound is sometimes called low-frequency sound. It is sound that is lower in frequency than 20 Hz or cycles per second, the “normal” limit of human hearing. Hearing becomes gradually less sensitive as frequency decreases, so for humans to perceive infrasound, the sound pressure must be sufficiently high. The ear is the primary organ for sensing infrasound, but at higher intensities it is possible to feel infrasound vibrations in various parts of the body.

One main thing about infrasound is the ability of it to cover long distances and to go around obstacles without loss of the sound energy.

When we think about Bigfoot and infrasound, some are quick to dismiss the idea that Bigfoot has the ability to produce infrasound. But we must understand that there are natural and man made sources of infrasound.

Some of the man made producers of infrasound would be things like wind turbines, diesel engines and other machinery.

We also know that several animals produce infrasound. Some of these animals that produce infrasound are: whales, elephants, hippopotamuses, rhinoceroses, giraffes, okapis, and alligators. In the case of whales, they have been know to communicate hundreds of miles using infrasound. Even the roar of the tiger contains infrasound of 18 Hz and lower. So, this knowledge alone can lend itself to the idea that Bigfoot may have this ability.

Some may say that Bigfoot is too human to make infrasound. But we know that some vocalists, including Tim Storms, can produce notes in the infrasound range. So it is still not off the shelf that Bigfoot has this ability.

Some of the natural producers of infrasound are things like earthquakes, volcanoes, waterfalls and lightning, just to name a few. This is why it is thought that animals know when a earthquake is about to happen, they perceive the infrasonic waves going through the earth. The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami is a good example of animals knowing about a natural disaster before it happens. Animals were reported to have fled the area hours before the actual tsunami hit the shores of Asia.

Now, here is where we get into some of the effects of infrasound on humans. Some studies indicate that infrasound may cause feelings of awe or fear in humans. This is commonly reported in the Bigfoot Community from researchers and witnesses. But that is not all. Because the person can not consciously perceived the infrasound, it may make them feel vaguely that odd or supernatural events are taking place. Could this possibly explain some of the wild claims by researchers and witnesses? I think it might and it should be worth considering.

In my opinion this might even explain some of the “disappearing Bigfoot” stories that we often hear about. It might even explain the idea of “mindspeak”, and “portals”, but of course those who have experienced this will not even consider they were hit with infrasound to this degree. In fact, I expect to be verbally attacked for even putting forth the idea.

The idea of infrasound can also overlap into several others areas. Some studies showed that some people get an uneasy or sorrowful feeling when exposed to infrasound. Some even reported getting chills down the spine or nervous feelings of revulsion or fear. Some have suggested that haunted location are actually producing infrasound and causing people to see ghosts and have a perceived paranormal experience. This makes me wonder if empaths, mediums or psychics have an ability to hone in on the infrasound and interpret what they are feeling. Just a thought, I guess.

It seems that infrasound can produce some of the same effects as high EMFs. I know in ghost hunting we often use EMF meters to check for high EMF. We know that high EMF can cause a person to experience numerous things that parallel infrasound effects.

Fear, paranoia, nausea, and a host of other effects can be caused by infrasound and high EMF. These are things we need to consider when we are researching. I know in the ghost hunting world we attempt to detect this type of thing, but I don’t think we do it near as often in the Bigfoot research field. We may be able to rule out some cases due to infrasound or high EMF but I still think there will be many that we can’t fully explain.

There are many more questions and scenarios to consider when it comes to infrasound, EMF and it’s effects on people and abilities. But we do need to know some basic information about each of these.

Bigfoot through history in Michigan

by Scott Harper
Michigan. The Great Lakes State. The Wolverine State. Michigan is the only US state to be made up of two peninsulas. Fifty percent of Michigan is covered by forest. Many lakes, ponds, and streams dot the peninsulas that make up Michigan, as well. Deer, and other wildlife are populous. In short, the state of Michigan is perfect country for Sasquatch—despite the heavy lake effect snow the region receives during the winter. And Sasquatch have been there for quite some time.

In 1878, a woman was hanging laundry in her backyard. A noise captured her attention. Upon looking up, she saw a 12-foot-tall, white Sasquatch in the cow pasture. The creature ran on all fours, leapt over a cow, stood up to its full height, then charged the woman, now running on two feet. She screamed, and ran into the house. The creature, chasing her, got tangled up in the clothesline. The woman ran from the house, to the lumber mill where her husband worked, refusing to return home for hours. When she did return home, with her husband, her husband found footprints, but no other sign of the creature.
A report filed in 1891 told of a Wildman of “gigantic proportions” with arms to below its knees, and “hands twice the usual size”. The “Wildman” was said to have killed a bulldog with “one swipe”. This took place in Gladwin County.
During the winter of 1917, in Ironwood, Michigan, two hunters saw a “man in a fur suit” steal a deer they had killed. The “man” made off with the deer carcass tucked under his arm.
News of a 12′ 7″ skeleton being unearthed in Jackson, Michigan made front page news on September 6, 1919.
Somewhere along the Saginaw River, in 1937, a Sasquatch was seen to climb from the river, rest leaning against a tree for a time, and then return to the river.
An area in Charlotte County Michigan bears the name Gorilla Swamp due to a string of sightings of a bipedal, hairy creature seen there multiple times in 1951.

From 1962 until 1964 sightings of a creature dubbed the Monster of Sister Lakes was sighted off and on a number of times in Cass County. In 1964, a woman was chased into her house by a creature with long black hair, and glowing eyes. The woman estimated that the being weighed 500 pounds. It left footprints that were 6-inches-wide. It was thought that the creature that chased the woman had been the Monster of Sister Lakes.

August 13, 1965 brought a frightening account of an encounter with a 7-foot-tall, black- haired, growling Sasquatch. 17-year-old Christina Van Acker, and her mother, Ruth, were in a car, heading home. Christina was driving. Though they saw nothing in the road ahead of time, the car ran over something. After the bump, Christina stopped the car. Instantly, the Sasquatch reached through Christina’s window, grabbed her by the hair, and slammed her head into the car door. Christina passed out. Ruth, later claiming that there was nothing she could do, fled to get help. Apparently, and luckily, Christina survived the ordeal with nothing but some bruises.

Sasquatch have been in the area we call “Michigan” for a very long time—long before the Patterson/Gimlin film, which was recorded in 1967. They’re still there, too. Reports still come steadily from the Wolverine State. Years ago, I may have even had my own experience with a Sasquatch on Mackinac Island.

It was the late 1980s, or very early 1990s. I was on a vacation trip with my parents and best friend at that time. We were walking a trail in woodlands on Mackinac Island. Something off in the woods screamed. At the time, we chalked it up to a bobcat. Still, all four of us were unnerved, and turned around, and left the area quickly. To this day, I don’t know what screamed in those woods. If it was a bobcat, though, it was a very large one!

‘Monster of Sister Lakes’ in Michigan
Posted: 03 Jul 2019 07:45 AM PDT

‘Huge Monster’ Frightens Girls at Sister Lakes

The ‘Monster of Sister Lakes’ made a daylight appearance today, terrorizing three young girls and causing one of them to faint. Joyce Smith, 13: Patsy Clayton, 12, and her sister, Gail, 13, said they were walking along a wooded road in Silver Creek Township about 9:15 AM when the ‘monster’ suddenly appeared. Joyce saw him first and promptly fainted. Patsy got a good look at the creature before it ducked into the woods. Gail was too far away to see it. After the ‘monster’ fled, the girls revived Joyce and they ran to a neighboring home and telephoned police. Sheriff’s deputies armed with rifles rushed to the area. Joyce said the creature ‘did not look like a man,’ Patsy, who said she saw it at close range, said it ‘looked like a bear.’ She said it was about seven feet tall and ‘had a black face.’ Earlier, authorities had ended the search for the ‘monster’ after thousands of residents poured into the area, creating a massive traffic jam. Area residents have been on edge in recent days since reports began circulating that the monster is back. Terrified residents have described the monster as about nine feet tall and weighing 500 pounds. Cass County sheriff’s deputies said the presence of the monster has been reported off and on for about two years. Mrs. John Utrup of nearby Dewey Lakes, Michigan, told the sheriff’s deputies the beast chased her into her home Tuesday night. She said she was saved when her dogs barked and drove the monster away. Other descriptions said it was covered with black hair up to its neck and had eyes that glowed like an animal that had a light shining in its eyes. Various witnesses said the monster made noises ‘like a tamed goose’ and ‘a baby crying.’ Cass County Deputy Sheriff Ernest Kraus said deputies were dispatched into the area in which the monster had been reported. They were armed with deer rifles and would stake out the area ‘until we solve this.’ But deputies said the area was inundated with a flow of curiosity seekers and all the officers were forced to direct traffic. ‘We had all the men we could spare up there and had to get some help from Van Buren County ‘to take care of the traffic,’a spokesman said. He said man cars were loaded with up to six people. ‘We don’t know what it is. We don’t even know if it exists,’ the sheriff’s spokesman said. ‘But there have been complaints by about 10 reputable persons and we have to check them out.’ Kraus said it has not been precluded the object of the extensive search in progress is a gorilla. ‘We have had no reports of any circus gorillas having escaped by the description of several persons matches that of a gorilla-hair up to the neck, widespread eyes and about nine feet tall. ‘Whatever it is, it could have been in that swampy and wooded area for some time.’ Authorities also theorized the creature could be a big bear. Tracks found in the mud showed an imprint of 3 3/4 inches at the heel and spanned six inches across the foot. The general area in which the monster has been reported is on the Cass Van Buren County line. The area is inhabited by year around occupants as well as the location of many summer resorts and cabins. Kraus said many witnesses agreed with Mrs. Utrup in the description of the monster. ‘That many people can’t be wrong, so there must be something out there,’ he said. He said that officers from two counties investigated similar reports about two years ago but were unable to locate the mysterious creature. ‘I hope we can find out what the score is,’ Kraus said. ‘Women are terrified and refuse to leave their homes without escorts.’ Gordon Brown, Dowagiac, Michigan, said he saw the monster Tuesday night in the headlights of his car on the farm of Harold Utrup, brother-in-law of Mrs. Utrup. ‘It’s no bear,’ Brown insisted. ‘It had a face like a human.’

Possible Bigfoot activity in a Detroit suburb

I will  set the stage of what we found this past May 18th. And possible Bigfoot activity in a suburb of Detroit, Ypsilanti, Michigan. It all started where one of the guys that was with us that day is a native of Ypsilanti. He had mentioned on a previous trip he was driving off of I 94  through this town when he saw what he thought was a tree structure on the side of the highway, and from his vantage point he was pretty sure it was a Bigfoot structure.  He then proceeded to get off at the next exit and back tracked to the area of woods he saw this structure from. He was able to locate this structure, which happened to be within  an industrial park. But this stretch of woods was rather a long stretch that went on for many miles.

The day we went out there, and there were four of us, we trekked back and we were able to find the stick structure he had originally found. After taking several pictures of the structure we were heading back to our cars when I found what potentially might have been a ” Bare” foot print. I am including a picture of the structure, and the foot print for examination.

 

I am not saying for a minute that what I am showing is anything conclusive, but many researchers feel  that  Bigfoot has been able to co-exist with mankind, living  in our suburbs. My theory is that Bigfoot is able to follow the growing deer herds throughout the country, much like other wild life has been able to grow, and thrive living in our suburbs. Enjoy the pictures and please let me know your thoughts

Terrifying incident in Monroe, Michigan

I am about to reveal a story told to me by a former police agent, whom I just recently met. The source, who wants their identity kept secret, seemed to be very credible and honest, and quite  shook up by their sighting. This is the third person I have interviewed that has mentioned that their sighting was a life changing event and that that the memory if their sighting has haunted them. Be careful of what you wish for when heading out into the woods, or in your quest to hunt down Bigfoot.

Here is the story as told to me by Federal agent D.

I still have anxiety about the sighting and experience. I still have bad dreams that continue to haunt me, and have only driven down that road once in the daytime since my strange sighting.

The only thing I didn’t include when I spoke to you was that the blazing red eyes struck a very primal fear instinct in me that has been difficult to shake since the sighting. Whatever it was was able to project primal fear upon its prey—me.

The incident occurred on November 1, 2018, at approximately 10:40 PM. I was returning home near Monroe, Michigan from a class in nearby Ypsilanti. I was driving southeast on north Stony Creek Road in Exceter Township and on Tobin Road, a route I had taken numerous times in the past.
It was overcast, dry, and extremely dark outside, where I could see that the night sky was slightly lighter than the woods and occasional house that passed by the car as I drove. It was if there were a power outage, since I did not see any lights on in the houses, nor any driveway lights at the time.
I continued driving on this narrow country road when I looked out the driver’s side window of my car. What I saw was unreal, unmistakable and terrifying; it was unlike anything I had ever seen before, or since. This is the fist time I have shared this incident with others and am hesitant to talk about it.
It was standing off the side of the road less than fifty feet from the car as I drove by, when in the darkness, I saw two blazing red eyes staring back at me. I got a look at it for about 3 or 4 seconds, and it appeared to be 7-8 feet tall, had a bulky outline blacker than its surroundings; where I unmistakably saw it had a head, two arms and two legs. It was standing upright, and boldly stood on the side of the road without movement or apology.
My headlights barely lit the dark road, and the eyes were not reflecting the light from the headlamps at all like any of the other animals I have encountered at night.
What was really strange is that the eyes appeared to be bioluminescent—that is—emitting their own light. The blazing and firey red eyes penetrated the dark night like laser beams, but only projected 2, and less than 3 feet out from the eyes and body of this creature. It was surreal.
As I passed this creature, it was as if it were projecting onto me a very raw, primal fear. This was not my fear, but terror and fear that came directly from this thing. I was stunned and shocked at what I was seeing. I couldn’t believe it—but still, there it was.
It took me several seconds to process seeing this “thing” as I continued driving. I tried to provide myself with some rational explanation as to what I had just witnessed and assessed the area, finding none. I continued driving and decided against turning around to try to photograph it, primarily because of the primal fear and terror I experienced were unlike anything I have experienced in my lifetime.
I have been seriously shaken by the incident, where I avoid the road altogether, and entire area after dark. What I saw was something that was not right, that didn’t fall within any sort of normal experience that people have. To this day, I know what I saw, but I can’t explain it.
I have to add here that I have been hiking Michigan for the past five years, and have encountered bears, coyotes, wolves, bobcats, owls and other large birds; deer, among others.  I know what wildlife looks like and this thing was very different and nothing like anything I have seen before, or since.
I have over twenty plus years in law enforcement as a veteran police officer, and retired federal agent with an above top secret security clearance. I also hold academic degrees and credentials where I have instructed college and university courses.
What I experienced that night was enough to fill this veteran law enforcement officer and federal agent with primal fear and terror, and to shake my belief system to its very foundation.
As a police officer, you sometimes see things you keep your mouth shut about—that is, if you want to keep your job. I would not be speaking of this if I were not retired from service.
I know now that there are things out there we have yet to explain—in the darkness of night—and on long, lonely country roads in Michigan. Once a skeptic, after my experiences, I am a believer.
Federal Agent D, Retired.
What this agent experienced was terrifying. Was this a case where this creature was using Infrasound, and or mind speak to paralyze it’s prey? Is this the way they hunt? And what would have happened to this individual had they been walking down the road and had this encounter? All very good questions and something we need to consider as we are going about our daily lives.

Over the years, reported sightings of the legendary — and mystical — Bigfoot have made headlines across the United States. He’s been spotted in parks and campsites by people who claim the giant Sasquatch is unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.

The legend of the beast has grown over the years as there are whole groups of people who search for Bigfoot and track his “known whereabouts.”

According to a new TV show, “In Search of Monsters,” Michigan is one of the top places to encounter Bigfoot as there have been 1,131 sightings reported in our state over the years.

In a description of their findings, the show — which airs on the Travel Channel — says many of the reported sightings were near the Seney National Wildlife Refuge in the Upper Peninsula. They even describe a scenario where a woman claims Bigfoot walked up to her car and looked in while her baby was inside. She said there was a foul odor in the air and then she saw the massive creature.

In the fall of 2016, there were at least three reported sightings of Bigfoot in Michigan in the span of a few weeks. All of these occurred in the Upper Peninsula.

Other states with significant claims of seeing the beast include Washington, California, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
