Michigan U.P. Bigfoot REVEALED

As always I am out seeking evidence of unknown animals, namely Cryptids.  Most reports are from over active imaginations, faux stories to drum up attention, and then there are those that the witness truly believes what they saw is in fact a Cryptid.  In this particular case the original story circulating hinting that it was indeed a hunched over Bigfoot.

Now as much as I want something to be true, I generally do not jump on a story just to get the traffic to the website.  I start digging, researching, and keeping an open mind.  I am an avid outdoorsman, hunter, fisher and hiker as well as a Legend Hunter.  I know my surroundings, the local wildlife, sounds and thus don't get spooked like some do.  Some researchers only read online then go out in the woods once or twice a month for a few hours, or a couple of times a year.  So some, not all get a tad over excited in claims of activity...... I've been out with several that claim the MoneyMaker idiology... it must be a Sasquatch.


That being said this particular story caught my eye, as it shows an unusual photo from a game cam in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  It has the coloring of a bear, the size of a bear in relation to the 55 gal drum, the industry standard of a drum is 22-1/2 inches diameter X 33-1/2" inches long.  And the responses from so many forums and Facebook pages tickled me.  So many arguing for and against what it is supposed to be and their supporting arguments.  In this field of research scientific methodology over rules wants and wishes.  If your claims can not stand to the scientific method than the entire claim is ruled null and void.








Now I stated on several pages publicly it was a bear..... its very apparent to me... I have a mother bear and cubs within a mile of my house.  I know the movements, the looks. and for Pete's sake why would a 8 foot tall or taller Hominid be all hunched over running and look so small?


Simple walking bear here versus one running or changing directions because it was scared off.


Well another photo has appeared from the same game camera with a delay of 13 minutes, showing this bear here.  Now some argue due to the time difference Bigfoot could have left and a bear could have wondered in............... Occam's Razor folks. "a scientific and philosophic rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities"



Now its been pointed out to me, well look at its leg, the angle the arc of the back.  Has noone seen a bear run?




I'm submitting a few photos for observance and discussion.  Bears in various states of run, changing of direction, sizes.  






I'm sorry to shoot down the theory of its a Bigfoot, but i'm here for observation, not blind followings leading the blind. 


 I apply this same technique in Haunting's and UFO research.  The general public already look at us as freaks, and kook's why would we add to that ridicule.




Do cryptids exist?......... I think its Possible.  Do I think evidence exists to prove this.....  Not yet or we would have seen it.






This is what happens when you get to close to a bear and her cubs.  One particular after noon here in Arkansas my wife (at the time) and oldest daughter (4 at the time) rode the 4 wheeler down the hill from our house... right then a bear ran between them and me and into the woods... in the direction they were going on the 4 wheeler.  I ran full sprint into the woods and cleared the fence with ease (now at this age.... would never happen).  When i landed on the other side i heard the bear,...... then i heard the cub.  I immediately crawled slowly back over the fence.  One thing you never ever do, it doesn't matter how cute they are if you see a cub..... never ever get between a momma bear and her cubs.  EVER!!

Crop Circles in Aberdeen

I love a good Crop Circle Story,  don't know what it is about crops being laid down in patterns that gets to me.  I mean yes, the alien angle is cool... and yes i know anyone with a rope and some boards can run out and make one.....

But this..... this is odd here.



Aberdeen residents have been left wondering if they had been visited by aliens after waking up to find mysterious markings on a nearby grass land.

The tenants of the tower blocks in the Seaton area were left scratching their heads in at the crop-circle-style imprints in the grass.

Some even speculated on social media that the Granite City had been visited by beings from another planet.

And one person suggested that the bizarre branding looked like something from classic 1970's arcade game Space Invaders.

Another said the imprints were likely left by little green men.

Others said it could have been a gaffe-strewn midnight golf outing, with players digging up the pitch with divots.


Well......... sadly.....

However the council has come forward to say it is behind the circles.

An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “The marks are not alien crop circles.

“They are preparatory work for planting trees as part of the £500,000 Seaton Backies project which is rejuvenating a neglected green space for family use.

“We are planting dozens of trees as part of the project to create shelter, and the spots where the trees are to be planted need to be free of weeds before then – the trees will be planted from late autumn to April.”

Triangular UFO spotted and Filmed over Arkansas

Recently received video, multiple videos of Illuminated Orbs in the Sky in a Perfect Equilateral Triangle Formation moving in unison.

I'm mobile and reviewing the video on my phone.

Its from a Cell phone so fingers crossed we have imaging to analyze.

Woman kills 'Possessed' daughter with crucifix


OKLAHOMA CITY —An Oklahoma City woman told investigators she killed her daughter while trying to remove Satan from her body.

Police said they found 33-year-old Geneva Gomez dead in the 1500 block of N. McKinley Saturday afternoon. According to the police affidavit, Juanita Gomez said her daughter Geneva was possessed by the devil. According to investigators, Geneva was found laying with a large cross/crucifix on her chest.

Juanita told investigators that she had been possessed by the devil last week and that she punched Geneva repeatedly. She told investigators that she forced a crucifix and religious medallion down Geneva's throat until blood came out of her daughter's mouth.

According to court documents, Juanita saw her daughter die and placed her body in the shape of a cross.

Juanita had swollen hands and large bruises on her arms, according to investigators. She told them it was because Geneva was fighting Juanita's attempts to rid Satan from Geneva's body.

Juanita faces a complaint of first-degree murder.

The Birds Are Falling The Birds Are Falling

After hundreds of crows in Michigan and 13 bald eagles in Maryland, it’s now the residents of Redding, California who are confronted with an enigmatic mass die-off of nearly 100 starlings that suddenly fall from the sky.

The birds were first spotted on Saturday, March 26, 2016, along the I-5 just before the Wonderland Boulevard exit.

This is the first time official biologists hear about a bird die off in the region. And it is often hard to figure out what happened.

Were the birds killed by a passing car or truck? Or were they poisoned? Did they have any sickness?

The birds that weren’t in the roadway didn’t seem to show signs of trauma from crashing into vehicles or being struck. And if they were killed by disease or poison, why they would all be together. very unusual, very rare!

Valley of the Sasquatch - Movie REVIEW


Valley of the Sasquatch is a 2015 American horror film written and directed by John Portanova. It stars Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Jason Vail, David Saucedo, D'Angelo Midili, as a group of hunters who encounter a family of Sasquatches.

After his wife dies, Roger forces his son Michael to go on a hunting trip in rural Washington with a family friend and Roger's brother-in-law. When they reach their cabin, they find it has been broken into and is a mess. Thinking nothing of it, Roger and the others enter the nearby woods, where they encounter a family of hostile Sasquatches.

Another Awesome film with action, special effects and good cinematography.  The story line...i would tweak slightly.. and maybe reduce the excessive F-bombs. (just a personal pet peeve).  But other than that this is yet another excellent film about a Legend that is worth the purchase and you will enjoy.
