Like many of you, I grew up with a fascination for all the crazy and unknown things I was exposed to in the late 60's as a kid - from Bigfoot to UFO's to the Lock Ness Monster and more. Then I went to college, got a job, was married and started a family.
Then in the Fall of 2003 after a couple strange incidents that could only add up to a couple of Bigfoot encounters, (yes... actually seen) I began an internet search for other people locally and throughout the state who had sightings and other forms of contact with a highly improbable creature like this one. Over the years I've met many witnesses and researchers who's experiences helped me begin my search for truth. Over the first couple of years I met several other Hoosiers who I began to travel, camp and research with. THAT eventually led to meeting several other researchers and witnesses that would wind up seeing a dedicated team of friends begin a long-term research project in Mid-Michigan in 2006 where literally hundreds of vocalizations have been experienced with many of those audio recorded. Over the years we've photographed dozens of very consistent tracks, and on the rare occasion, handprints left on a camper window, a car window and on a tractor.
Then in 2009 I was fortunate enough to have my own car/road sighting about 75 feet in front of me about 3AM after a couple hours of vocalizations. THAT was the "Ah-HA!" moment where all those weekends of travel, camping and slogging around in all kind of weather came together. The research in Michigan continues to this day, and has as a whole, been very rewarding.
I used to have a rather detailed website (now long-gone) but lost it when a service provided closed down and I lost a lot of stuff.
As I can, I will try to update this revamped GoDaddy site with a handful of the photos, videos and audio recordings we've accumulated over the years. I make no promises, but I'll do what I can as I can.
I haven't done any Indiana field investigations for several years now, but I'd certainly be interested in hearing about anything you'd like to talk about.
I can be contacted at email@example.com if you'd like to talk about something you've experienced or seen. With your permission, I'll call and we'll talk about it. -- Mike
