Bigfoot in Michigan!

Sasquatch hunting groups say Michigan woods are a hotspot for sightings!

By John Carlisle from The Detroit Free Press

SENEY NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE -- Maybe Bigfoot did this. Maybe.

Rich Meyer stood in an Upper Peninsula forest, calling his friend over to a spot along a trail. He’d found something.

A tall, thin sapling had been bent into an arch over the path, high above everyone’s heads. Its tip was wedged in the underbrush, holding it down. This, Meyer said, might be a sign. Bigfoots, he explained, often leave signals to each other using sticks or trees. Arches are common.

“It can be a marker of some kind, almost like a road map,” said the 39-year-old.

Meyer is the founder of the Upper Peninsula Bigfoot/Sasquatch Research Organization, dedicated to finding proof that Bigfoot is real and living in the U.P.

On that fall afternoon, he and Shawn Mullins, a fellow Bigfoot investigator, were scouting the woods at the edge of the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, 95,000 dense acres of unspoiled wilderness in the central Upper Peninsula. If Sasquatch is real, the investigators thought, this would be a great place to hide. And a likely place to find proof that he exists.

“Look at this,” Mullins said, walking over to a spot where about a dozen long sticks leaned upright on one another to form a vague “X” shape. This, too, is said to be common in Bigfoot stick language.

“It’s interesting because of how it’s kind of interweaved like that,” said Mullins. The 36-year-old looked it over carefully. “A lot of these branches were probably laying down right here, and it’s almost like they were deliberately put up and weaved into an ‘X’ like this.”

He wasn’t convinced, though. “Could be something, could be nothing,” he admitted.

It's been a busy year for the group. Bigfoot has been all over the news. First, there was a sighting in May of a possible Bigfoot seen on a camera mounted above an eagle’s nest in a tree in Beulah, near the Platte River State Fish Hatchery in the northern Lower Peninsula. It made news all over the world.
