Be careful of what you wish for!

I have interviewed several eye witnesses that have had encountered Bigfoot. And to a man they have told me that it was a ” Life changing moment” that forever changed them So be carful where you go!
The “Loss of Innocence” – Advice to Aspiring Bigfoot Researchers
I used to love the outdoors. I would go out alone and wander around in the forest, exploring new places, the further off the beaten path the better. I would go into the National Park and select a drainage and just go, walk in for a couple hours then turn around and walk back out. I preferred to hunt deer alone, finding spots so deep in the thickets that no one else would even dream of going back into these places. Every now and then I would get the feeling I was being watched, but I would shrug the feeling off and go back to enjoying my day.
Those days are no more; the wilderness has lost its wonder. It is no longer a place of peace and serenity. It all changed for me on a sunny June day in 2009 while fishing. I was casting a point of land that was part of a public recreation area. I made some silly sounding “whooping” calls why I do even know. I was just messing around imitating what I had watched in a YouTube video. Then the most amazing thing happen, something came tearing down through the woods. It was breaking limbs and crashing around in the thick underbrush. My jaw dropped and I was in shock as I stared at the shoreline. It stayed back in the shadows and I could only catch glimpses of sunlight on it from time to time. It acted like it was looking for something. It would go up the bank to the right and then the left. While all this was going on I was fumbling with the trolling motor trying to put some distance between it and me. After a couple minutes I heard a very clear “humph” three or four times. Then I heard it walk back into the woods slowly until it was out of range. It took me several minutes to compose myself as I sat down in the bottom of my fishing boat.
This event would change everything. I had to find out what had made this noise. Even though I had a sighting when I was a child, this event was the catalyst; this event started me on this journey, this “quest for the truth”.
Over the past three years I have seen and experienced things that are unbelievable. The average person has no idea what is going on in the wilderness. I can no longer go into the woods in a state of “ignorant bliss” and just enjoy it. I know what is out there, I know what is watching and lurking in the shadows.
I do still enjoy being out but it is different now. It is hard to explain to those who have never experienced it, but the Bigfoot “know that you know” and this changes everything. I have a difficult time deer hunting because of interference from the Bigfoot. I go on family outings in the National Park with relatives that have no clue about Bigfoot or that I research and we will hear “strange sounds” or encounter “odd smells”.
I can not explain this but some people are what I called “marked” by the Bigfoot. No matter where you go, if there are Bigfoot in the area they will find you and make themselves known to you. On average it takes a couple days in an area for the “locals” to find you. Then all the “odd” stuff begins to happen.
My “loss of innocence” is compounded when you throw in the other crytpids that have shown up. I had only heard rumors about the “Dogman” until I captured it on video and then later made direct eye contact with one. I was not looking for them and definitely did not want to see one. It is a shock to the system when you begin to realize what you have been taught all your life is wrong and that your “reality” is not the truth. You have heard the old saying, “be careful what you wish for, you just might get it”. Well I found out how true this statement is. To be honest I am still adjusting to this “new reality”. Gone are the days when the woods were a place of solitude, peace, and wonder. It is now a place where the “Monsters” live and they do not respect your “reality”.
I get several request from people all the time “where can I go to see a Bigfoot”, “what can I do to have an encounter”, and “I want to know the truth about them”. My first piece of advise would be are you sure that is what you really want? The “truth” is a very sharp double-edged sword and is no respecter of persons or your belief system.
I have been bursting many bubbles lately when I talk to people. My advice now comes with stern warnings about being cautious, going armed, never going in the woods alone, do not take your children with you, if you’re a woman be extra careful. I can hear the disbelief in the voices of those hearing this for the first time. Those who think like I once did; the “benevolent keeper of the forest” is not always so benevolent and he is not the only cryptid out there.
So this is my advice or better my warning to those who want to “research Bigfoot” or “find the truth”, find another hobby, this is not what you think it is. If you still insist then be ready for a shock to your belief system, be ready to throw out everything you think you know. When you think it can’t get any “weirder” it will and there are very few people who you can tell or talk about this with. You will be called a crackpot, crazy, insane, out of touch with reality, idiot, and these are just the ones I can repeat. You will experience things you can not record on film or produce “evidence” of, you will be frustrated constantly by camera malfunctions, blobsquatches, and noises you plainly heard but your equipment did not pick up.
There are also the unintended consequences of research, home visitations. Yes in many cases they will follow you home, do not ask how or why I just know they do. Then your friends and family will really thing you are a lunatic.
Finally I have one more warning to give you, with knowing the truth comes responsibility. What do you tell the woman that calls you who is all excited about researching Bigfoot and loves to go out into the woods all by herself? When you see that a child has gone missing in a wildness area you will wonder. When phone calls come from scared people who have a Bigfoot habitation around their home what do you tell them? When you talk to a person that has just had an encounter and they called you because you’re the “local researcher” what do you tell them? What are you going to say to calm their nerves? How are you going to reassure them that it is ok, they are not crazy, what they saw is real.
Some who research seek anonymity to avoid the above but it will be difficult if you choose to go this route, you will be faced with choices to speak out or be silent and there are consequences to both decisions.
So in closing my final word to you is take up golf or fishing it is safer and less stressful, but if you insist on perusing “Bigfoot Research” be prepared for your “loss of inn

Diseases in the Bigfoot world

Here is an article provided by Gumshoe corner.
Disease and Bigfoots
A blessing or curse? Consider this Bigfoots live a hard difficult life. Few would argue Bigfoots live a life of luxury. It has been said that Bigfoots posses this superhuman healing ability. So, somebody aptly suggest that Sasquatches may have a host of diseases and parasites that we probably do not want to share or play host to if we were to know the truth. In the interest of disclosure as far as that goes I know little about their medicine, remedies or healing goes. I never seen any evidence to support that tp know differently. If I had it doesn’t stand out with me right now. On the other hand, scabies, eczema, dermatitis and other skin conditions have been observed as well as parasites and even mange. What I do recall are few reports of authorities responding to Bigfoot Sasquatch accident or incident scenes dressed fully suited in Hazmat regalia. We can only surmise Bigfoots are intelligent enough to understand that humans are carrier of viruses and diseases for which they have no inoculation for preventive measures or antibodies to protect them. As far as anyone knows the reason that they avoid such close contact with us is because our diseases could kill them. Ever watch a documentary on gorillas in the wild? Even the native guides wear a mask, so The gorillas don’t potentially get sick. Another thing to consider is they could potentially suffer from Simian Herpes Simplex, which is far as I know has 100% mortality if contracted by a homo sapien. In the warm months, they are quite miserable, there are places here where they will spend quite a bit of time submerged up to their necks in the water in order to combat parasites, heat and mosquitoes. They will slather themselves in mud and Spanish moss in order to keep cool.Most of us will agree BF are prone to heat stress in warm weather ( and a reason why they will move ) for cooler climates where ever they can find them. If they hates could be because we have air conditioners and they don’t, is it a hateful thing for people (humans) to provide themselves with with comfort and quality of life?

Giants in America

 Guest Post by Stewart Taylor.  Stewart enjoys sharing with interested folks about what he has been fortunate with obtaining. To teach and convey these subjects are a forest people living among us.

GIANTS IN AMERICA BY STEWART TAYLOR

Throughout world history and legends, there are documented accounts of ordinary men coming in contact with humanoid giants of various sorts. The Titans, Ogres and Trolls are just a few of many widely used examples. There are also similar records contained within various religious documentations. For one, the Christian Bible clearly relates how giants came to be among men in its very first book, Genesis, chapter 6.
In today’s world, a vast majority of folks give this subject little serious consideration or thought. They quickly discount this particular information as merely just fables or fairy tales. Most consider it on the same level as a Mother Goose tale and other stories for young children to dream on at bedtime.
Regardless of these commonly held opinions, it doesn’t change what has occurred closer to home. In North America, Native American history and legends have contained information on giants for hundreds of years, some of which are clearly recorded in ancient cave paintings or masks and totem figures.

Many Native American tribes have names for these subjects. A few examples in the English translation are: “The Stone Giants” are used by the Cherokee and Iroquois people. The Lakota term is “Big Elder Brother” and the Taos call them “Big Person. The list of names is very extensive and other than a limited few terms like “Demon”, “Devil” or “Cannibal Giants”, none lists or compares these subjects to an animal.

close study of American news accounts also reveal numerous stories of humanoid giants being seen. It starts along the east coast in the 1700’s then moves with the westward push into the 18 and 1900’s. In Daniel Boone’s memoirs, he wrote of shooting a ten foot “Yahoo” in 1782. It was located in Kentucky somewhere along what is now the Montgomery-Powell County line. In another account, Teddy Roosevelt, our 26th president, wrote a book in the late 1800’s, titled “Wilderness Hunter”. It has one chapter about two young hunters/trappers encountering a large hairy giant in what was then the remote Montana territory. They entered it in a remote valley that was shunned by the local Indian population as being an evil dangerous place.

Here in America, there are presently dozens of organized groups dedicated to investigating and documenting reports of giants. It is information coming from everyday people seeing or hearing something very unusual in the wooded areas of America. An appreciable number of these witnesses are respected folks like doctors, nurses, active military, police and firemen, all having no reason to lie or receive any personal gain for telling their story. Some would have been better off never telling their story for the rejection and ridicule they received. All for doing nothing more than telling the complete truth of what happened to them. It is an ignorantly cast prejudice that has stifled numerous personal accounts, some of which may be never told to another!

The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (B.F.R.O.) was formed in 1995. Since that time, they have investigated and published over 4600 credible and verified witness accounts believed to be directly associated with the Bigfoot/Sasquatch phenomenon. Most of them occurring right here in North America! The total number of submitted reports is actually much higher than this published figure, but if a reasonable level of certainty cannot be verified or established, it is not listed on their internet website.

Like most other folks, I never gave this phenomenon much serious consideration. As a young adolescent back in the mid 1960’s, I was intrigued by the first release of the Patterson-Gimlin film on the local news channel. I spent a short time pondering all the possibilities, but it was quickly gone, soon replaced by other youthful adventures and interests.

I was raised up along the west coast, hunting, fishing, camping and hiking in areas of reported Bigfoot activity. Not once do I ever recall hearing or seeing anything close to making me believe this elusive giant could really exist. It was years later after several decades of mature adult life and moving to the southwest U.S., that I had my first “What in the world was that!?” moment.
My son and I were night fishing along a remote, heavily wooded creek bank in North Texas. We parked there shortly before sundown and had fished well past midnight by the light of the Coleman lantern placed on my pickup’s tailgate behind us.

At some point, I became aware of subtle movements in the brush north of us. A swish of a branch here, a crackle of leaves there, I first noticed it about 100-150 yards away and it seemed to be slowly getting closer to us. There was a side slough running perpendicular into the creek beside us. It was about 20 feet wide and separated us from the thick brush where the noises were coming from.
I wasn’t at all concerned since many night animals such as armadillo, raccoon, coyotes etc., often forage through the night and are no serious threat. It was then I felt the very distinct feeling of being watched and then a loud close snap of a fairly large twig being stepped on. Not something any light four legged animal would do.

My level of alertness perked up several notches and I began to discreetly scan our entire perimeter, not wanting to concern my then 15 year old son. Nothing was there, so I then focused on the thick brush line. I got up and strolled over to the truck cab retrieving a bright spotlight and began to scan that direction.

I can’t precisely relate what I momentarily saw flash by the roving circle of light, but looked like a man’s face recessed back in the brush. It was there one split second and gone the next. I jerked the light back to the spot, but then saw nothing. Noticing my sudden movement out of the corner of his eye, my son asked “What are you doing Dad?”?

“Oh nothing….just looking” I replied, not wanting to sound a bit concerned to him, but was now not at total peace with this subtle activity.

I put the light up and sat back down and continued fishing. Not more than 10 minutes, not less than 5, a huge cinder block sized object came hurtling out of the brush line, crashing into the water less than 10 feet from us. It produced a splash about like a 50 pound child doing a cannon ball off the high dive. We both instinctively fell back in our folding chairs away from the splash as huge drops of water rained down on us.

“WHAT WAS THAT!?…WHAT WAS THAT!?” my son screamed out lunging to me and tightly clutching my side as his terrified eyes wildly darted about.

I pulled him back from the water watching to large waves fan out. I was completely bewildered at the unexpected chain of events. What I did know was that whatever hit the water was large and didn’t float. I also knew if it had hit either one of us, it would have inflicted at the very least, serious bodily injury-probably more. Feeling quite threatened, I raced over to the truck and grabbed my 357 revolver loaded with hot personal defense rounds.

“THAT’S NOT FUNNY!” I yelled out. “I HAVE A GUN AND MAY DECIDE TO USE IT IF YOU THROW SOMETHING LIKE THAT AGAIN!”

I thought at that time, it was just someone pranking around with us, but that object came dangerously close to both of us and I didn’t appreciate it one bit. Wanting to jack back with whoever it was, I cocked the hammer back single action, aimed the gun down into the soft bank beside me, plugged one ear and cracked a round down into the mud. KA-BOOM!

It instantly sounded like a huge buck deer taking off away from us in the thick brush. There was a snapping and cracking of branches from something very big and strong, moving much faster through the stuff than any human I knew of could do.

With wide eyes my son looked at me and asked “What was that Dad”?
“I don’t know son, but l think it’s time to go”, I replied. That was my first “What in the world was that moment”. Since that time, I have personally spoken to people with an assortment of experiences much like mine. Seeing or hearing something big out in the woods that they have absolutely no explanation for!

Aided by a small group of knowledgeable people, I eventually began serious study and exploration of this interconnecting waterway system and the surrounding woods. On one occasion, we were followed and paced by something large in the thick brush. It stopped when we stopped, then moved when we moved.
A dark shape darted across a small creek bed about 75 yards ahead of us. We discovered a partial print gouged out in the dried mud. It was about 7.5 inches wide and you can see the toe digs, but the total length could not be determined.

Zoomed in (Thomas Marcum)

Right after this photo was taken, a softball sized object landed behind us with a loud thud.
On another research trip, I saw a dark shape dart across the trail in front of me. It was partially occluded by the surrounding leaves vegetation and happened so fast I didn’t get a good look. I moved up the trail to that particular area and scanned my perimeter, but couldn’t make out anything. The distinctive feeling of being watched, once again swept over me. I took my camera and shot a series of photos all around me. This is one of the photos I took that day. Can you make out anything unusual in this photo?

He is there peeking up from behind a pile of sticks just to the left of the two trees in the middle portion of this photo. It is a prime example of how well these subjects use cover and concealment and the primary reason most folks never see them.
The following picture is an enhanced blow-up of this previous photo. You can see the subject’s eyes peeking over the branches. I was using a fill-in flash and you can see his right eye reflecting the flash of light. He is also holding a branch with his right hand putting the green leaves up in front of his face. This behavior has been recorded before as they carefully use cover and concealment to perfection.

I never keyed on him when I took this picture, but found him later carefully reviewing my photos. I did get a good visual sighting later that morning while looking at a brush line through binoculars. It was at about 150 yards and the Big Guy was watching me, peering over a bush very similar to the one shown in the above picture.

My intentions were to experience and see for myself that these subjects are very real and dwell among us. I have no desire to prove anything to the skeptic. They will believe what they want to believe. My desire is to share with people wanting to know more about the incredible phenomenon. They are very real and live among us.

On another occasion, I was fortunate enough to video a young subject in a secluded, very remote area of Central Oklahoma. It was an area that had history of a family group living there. I was on a hill side scanning an area down the hill where we could hear movement. After nearly an hour of shooting video, I was able to capture a brief clip of a young one peeking at us. I downloaded a portion of it to U-tube titled, “Young Bigfoot Caught Peeking”.

Here are two enhanced clips from the video shot at about 100 yards distance.

This is a quartering view of him peering out from behind the brush.

Enhanced version (By Thomas Marcum)

He is looking down to the right and almost looks like a samurai wrestler.

Granted the telephoto lens and light conditions may have distorted the images some, but they are a fair representation of what I saw that day. Later that night, I was blessed with having five from a family group draw close to me, three of which got to within 20 feet of me!!

Many in the Bigfoot research community hold to the unfounded assumption that these subjects are just a dumb base primate roaming about in the woods to be driven and hunted like livestock or wild game. From what I have experienced, these subjects possess reasoning and cognitive thinking. They are very much like us in some ways, very different in others.

On another occasion in East Texas, I noticed a large Bigfoot sitting up high in a pine tree (Yes they do climb trees and do it quite well). He was watching our research party situated down the hill in an open area sitting up camp. I was able to pull him in with a tripod and a powerful lens and obtained some descent videos. Here are a few clips from it.

 This is the actual distance. I first saw him as a dark spot with binoculars scanning the ridge line.
He was in a larger pine tree behind these narrow ones.

 

Here’s the Big Guy sitting there on a bent saddle resting his left hand on the tree trunk.

 

Here are the trees with three having a bent offset at the top. I was told by an experienced forester, that if the top feeder point of a young pine tree is twisted off, one of the side branches will then become the feeder and you will get this offset. I can see one happening to a young tree, but three in one area? It raises a question, was this possibly done years ago with the intentions of having this high perch years later?

This location gives an excellent 360 degree lookout from the hill. Nothing could approach this ridge without being seen early.

I don’t have an exact size of this individual, but the following picture is a comparison shot I took several weeks later.

This is but a portion of the material I have been blessed with obtaining over the past several years. I know they are real and walk among us, for I have seen them up close with my own eyes. They are a very complex subject that is extremely elusive, yet they have and will continue to be seen by many.

I have taken many other audios, videos and pictures I plan on sharing when the time is right. Again, I enjoy sharing with interested folks about what I have been fortunate with obtaining. To teach and convey these subjects are a forest people living among us and not the dumb animal many people would like you to believe. Some, who have never actually seen one, yet make these totally unfounded assumptions as to who and what these giants of the forest are.

May His warm and ever loving Spirit touch your soul with goodness!
God Bless You All!

How do you know when Bigfoot is present?

How do you know if Bigfoot is in your vicinity? Check out the following traits of Bigfoot behavior presented by my good friend GumShoe. Who is a Bigfoot  researcher and witness. Thank you for your insight.

 

“BIGFOOT CREATURE IN THE AREA”
1. General “feeling” of uneasiness, fear or anxiousness, feeling of being watched while in the area.
2. Foul odor, resembling sewerage, rotting meat, sickening sweet and rancid.
3. Noises, unusual bird, or other unidentifiable noises, vocalizations which sound human but cannot be
understood, whistles, hearing footsteps as if being followed, small sticks breaking, large sticks striking trees, rocks being hit together, tapping, rapid movement in trees, brush, etc., but cannot see what is creating the movement.
4. Actions and reactions of people, if any, in the area. Fear, confusion, relating unexplained occurrences
5. Actions and reactions of animals in the area, fear, flight, agitation, disobedience, distraction, etc.
– (many dogs in the same area will bark without stopping throughout the night) cats, horses, cattle, deer, birds, show signs of distress, insects and frogs at night may become quiet for no apparent reason.
6. Disturbance or changes in foliage or ground, breakage of limbs or tree tops, trees and brush moved to
block trails, pulled down from different directions in what appears to be a “shelter” or “windbreak” woven patterns in sticks and trees, sometimes resembling “fences” gouge marks in the dirt or footprints. Misc. items or moved or missing in area. Missing animals, wild and domestic. These are some of the
most obvious things I would attribute to a Bigfoot creature being in a particular area. These are the things most easily recognized.
“BIGFOOT MISSING FROM A KNOWN OCCPIED AREA”
Numbers, 1 through 6 above are absent.
There is a STARK contrast between these two situations, although BOTH sets of circumstances occur in the SAME area. A pattern emerges where these things are occurring (not occurring) at differing, specific times of the year. Note: If there have been obvious signs of disturbance of trees or foliage, this stops and the area does not continue to change as a result. The first time I noticed this pattern I was really unsettled. It seemed the forest had become “empty” overnight. I spent hours in the woods each day, trying to figure out what had happened, why it was so quiet. I’d have to say, if you experience all 1 through 6 simultaneously, then suddenly it ALL STOPS, it’s pretty easy to determine that the Bigfoot creatures have left the area. In reverse, when these things begin occurring again, it’s obvious that they have returned. Carene Source: Western Bigfoot Society, March, 2001 Track Record# 105

Bigfoot living in Detroit?

Here is an interesting story by ” Gum Shoe Guy”. Gum Shoe has collected hundreds of stories, and sightings just in our state of Michigan.

Michigan Bigfoot Report and Data: Gumshoguy’s Corner
Hard to imagine but Bigfoot Sasquatches live and thrive on the peripheral fringes of inner cities and suburb cities”~ Gumshoguy
———————-
2014 February 15, Southwest Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan
DETROIT (Cryptozoology News) — A family claim they saw a strange ape-like creature Thursday afternoon coming out of the window of an abandoned house on the outskirts of the desolate city. C. Brown, his wife, and their two children said they were “driving around, looking to buy a new house”, when they allegedly witnessed the unidentified beast. “The economy has been devastating here man,” Brown explained. “One day, you are living in this beautiful city with over a million and a half working people, next day all you know is all is gone…crime has gone up and life has become almost impossible to deal with here. I am one of the lucky ones still with a job.” Detroit’s economy has seen a decline in the recent decades. What used to be the city of the automobile industry and prosperity has now become a crime-ridden place with the potential to become a war zone. Likewise, the once wealthy house lots are currently nothing but a sanctuary for homeless people struggling to live another day. “All the houses and people we used to know are long gone. Our neighborhood is not a safe place for our children anymore. So we decided to go look for a new place,” the man said. His wife shares the same feelings about the city. “Ain’t no place for us to live here. What for? People get shot for nothing in here. So we got in the car and went looking for a good house to move to,” she told Cryptozoology News. Reportedly, after driving for three hours and not able to find a house meeting the family standards, they decided it was time to return home. “I saw that thing right through the window of an abandoned house. I was shocked. I told my husband cause he was driving and couldn’t see it.” They described the house as a two story blue building with broken windows. Then, they said, Brown decided to “slow down to get a better look”. “Hell, we were curious about it. I mean, you know, we were aware that we ain’t in no safe neighborhood, but we didn’t get out of the car or nothing. We see this hairy arm reaching out the window. I say what the hell, he gonna get cut that dude with the broken glass, man. Then a whole body coming out the window, looked like a monkey, only big damn monkey with a stick on the hand. Maybe about 7-ft tall. It had short, reddish hair. But hold on, the face was human looking, as crazy as it sounds. My wife kept telling me to drive away, so we did. I got to see the animal’s eyes and all, big and dark, with a huge head, like a triangle shape, kinda, know what I mean? Started hitting the ground with the branch or the stick or whatever it was holding. Kind of reminded me of what squirrels do with their legs when you approach them. But this was no damn squirrel,” Brown claimed. A few moments later, as the Browns left the blue house behind, the animal supposedly walked through the bushes and disappeared. “I could see it on the mirror, he kept hitting the ground with the stick and then he walked away and couldn’t see him anymore. The kids were screaming in the backseat like crazy and my wife was trying to calm them down, man. It went on for 30 seconds or so,” the father said. “The lack of urban expansion in the city due to a poor economy could mean that some species have found their way back into their old habitat. It is also possible that the lots of empty houses could work as an incentive for wild animals seeking shelter. As a result, these witnesses could easily misidentify the native species of the area,” said Lorenzo Martinez, animal behaviorist and teacher at a Spanish university. “No no, that was not a dog or a bear. That was either some sick man dressed up for fun or a freaking monkey with a man’s face, like a Bigfoot. Whatever you wanna believe, up to you. That’s all I have to say,” said Brown.

Early Native American Lore

This post was kindly sent into me by a gentleman named Thomas Phelps, who has a back ground in history. I appreciate his contribution.

 

 

A book by Andrew Blackbird titled, History of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan (first published in 1887, but available on Scribd), has a legend story in Chapter 3 of the “earliest possible history” of Mackinaw Island and its inhabitants. As the story goes, the Ottawa (Odawa) came upon the island already occupied by a small band of Indians, who in turn consolidated with the Ottawa. A subsequent fight with Seneca (Iroquois) left only two ‘Ottawa’ survivors, a man and a woman, who escaped into the deepest wild and raised children, shunning civilization. It is believed:

“That is, they can be seen and unseen just as they see fit to be; and sometimes they simply manifest themselves as being present by throwing a club or a stone at a person walking in solitude, or by striking a dog belonging to the person walking; and sometimes by throwing a club at the lodge, night and day, or hearing their footsteps walking around the wigwam when the Indians would be camping out in an unsettled part of the country, and the dogs would bark, just as they would at any strange person approaching the door. And sometimes they would be tracked on snow by hunters, and if followed on their track, however recently passed, they could never be overtaken. Sometimes when an Indian would be hunting or walking in solitude, he would suddenly be seized with an unearthly fright, terribly awe stricken, apprehending some great evil. He feels very peculiar sensation from head to foot–the hair on his head stand and feeling like stiff porcupine quill. He feels benumbed with fright, and yet does not know what it is; and looking in every direction to see something, but nothing to be seen which might cause sensation of terror.”

The Ottawa call it “Paw-gwa-tchaw-nish-nah-boy,” or “wild roaming supernatural being.” This story caught my attention for the description contained within, which happens to be very similar to reports of Sasquatch behaviors experienced during encounters. I have never seen Blackbird’s accounting of Ottawa legend mentioned as a possible historical Sasquatch tale, but I think by the description it should be included.

Bigfoot encounter in Washtenaw County { 2004}

Washtenaw Co 20 Nov 2004 – Ape-Like Creature Seen Crossing Trail; Gray Female Observed
From: R W
While listening to the [police band] radio today, the DNR received a report from two people inside the Waterloo State Recreation area of large 7′ tall, ape-like creature with dark brown fur crossing a trail near Cassidy Lake. The creature was carrying a freshly killed deer under it’s arm according to the two eyewitnesses who saw it cross 25 feet in front of them and apparently they wasted NO time in leaving the area in fear.
From what I remember, they were close to or within 1.5 miles of Cassidy Lake, “on a trail that has a bend on it.” I suspect that they were near or closer to Green Lake in the south side of that area.
Interestingly, one of the DNR officers mentioned that he was wondering if it was the same creature that he spotted last month on the west side of Welch Lake Rd near Seymour Rd [about 7 miles west of the above sighting, which is 5 miles west into Jackson Co. from the Washtenaw Co. border]. He [the other officer] said no, that creature was dark gray in color and clearly a female with breasts from what he could see through his binoculars, but he was only able to observe it for 45 seconds before it moved back into the woods out of sight. Apparently, they must have had an anti-poaching sting going on, or looking for hunters in an area that is off limits to hunting and the creature was observed very nicely from a distance with high-powered binoculars by the DNR officer.
Moreover, he mentioned that the Sheriff’s Dept., had a report nearby north of Chelsea, where a hunter found a large buck with its head tore (twisted?) off, and it’s insides torn out. The hunter had a very weird feeling that he was being watched and heard some large branches snap, he left the area and called the police.
Both of the DNR officers concluded that it was probably the Sasquatch in the area that was responsible. However, if anyone asks him what is he is doing out in the woods with a camera or collecting any evidence, [one of the DNR officers said he would] just tell them that he is looking for signs of poachers. One thing the DNR mentioned, was that no hunter in their right mind would have turned down such a prize buck like the one found north of Chelsea, which was easily a 12 pointer. Apparently, the head was ripped off the body and thrown several yards away, and the poor thing looked like it was beat to death, then had it’s insides cut open and emptied out. However, they did not mention anything about the liver being missing.
I really think that the DNR investigates Sasquatch sightings, but they don’t divulge this to the general public. I mean how would it look if the DNR was out in the woods and they were asking the public if they saw Bigfoot walk through the area lately? However, I have heard three DNR officers say they have actually seen one of these creatures while out in the field, and they have no doubt about it being a reality.
After hearing this today, and all the other reports of dead deer found in the woods across northern Washtenaw County, especially from Whitmore Lake west possibly into Jackson County, leads me to believe that there is a family of Bigfoot creatures in that area. Moreover, I think as the deer herds move this time of the year, so do the Bigfoot creatures following them.

Bigfoot in Detroit Michigan suburb

2016 March 20, 12:30P Westland, Wayne County, Michigan

Story provided by a former Michigan state policeman and private investigator.

On March 20, 2016 Mother and son observed two Bigfoots. This occurred while they were walking around on a high bank near a river-creek ravine complete with thickets and partially wooded areas when they heard some men partying loudly but unable to see them. As she focused on the direction of the voices her attention was drawn to a creature in a ravine down below on the opposite creek bank. It was standing with its back to the witness and noticed this creature was swaying back and forth leading the witness to believe it was listening to the men some distance away. She described the color as being reddish brown and stood approximately 9 feet tall judging the height of a branch it was standing next to. The witness says her son was standing a short distance from her and she called out to him to leave. In addition to this information she also mentioned she observed a large tubular shaped pile of waste at the time and used that a reference to the exact point where the Sasquatch was standing. Investigators went to site in October and located remnants of suspected BF poop but it was too decayed to take a specimen sample. After learning a little more on Saturday from the son, I think the big picture is that 2 BF’s were traveling upstream (east) in the river valley and their progress was stopped by encountering 2 men some distance ahead of them. The large reddish brown BF in the lead stopped and waited quite a while (10 Min?) for the men to move on, but they stayed. Witness was watching the lead BF from up on the high ground, the son was about 20 or 30 yards east of her and saw the (apparently) smaller black one, which was east (downstream) from the lead BF. Neither witness seem to know by what route the 2 BF’s left the immediate area of the sighting or became hidden view. Source: Michigan Bigfoot Research Group

Possible Bigfoot sighting at the Waterloo game area

The following picture was taken several years ago by a gentleman whom we will refer to as ” Gum Shoe”, he is a former law enforcement officer who wishes to remain nameless. He and another Bigfoot investigator Bob, were out in the Waterloo- Pinkney State game area examining what they thought might be a possible Bigfoot bed. Bob was on the ground examining the bedding, while Gum Shoe was taking pictures in the area. Gum Shoe did not realize until later while going back through his pictures did he see what looks like a dark figure looking back at him. A little unnerving thinking back to that day that that they were being observed. The figure was about 50 yards from the photographer at the time. In addition Gum Shoe relates that while this was going on he was feeling agitated, which could be the result of possibly being zapped.

I know this is another grainy, fuzzy picture but is still interesting. You be the judge.
