July 2013 Sighting Outside Phillips, Wi

34 posts in this topic

 I live in Wisconsin. I have land about 40 minutes north of Phillips, WI. This area has had many sightings over the years by hunters and outdoorsmen. I have driven through this area as much as I have been able to since 2005. The BFRO site just posted a new sighting from this year. I guess I need to go up there soon and check out this area. I would like to take some pictures on CTY HWY F between Lugerville and HWY 13 in Phillips. Best time would be when there is a fresh snow so tracks could be seen better.  Does anyone on the forums live in Northern WI that has been to Price county? Main area of focus for me has been from Park Falls south to Phillips. I have driven the backroads at early morning and dusk times. Driving through the Chequamegon Nicolet National forest on HWY 70 is also a good place with all of the back forest roads and small lakes. Hwy 182 out of Park Falls is a good bet too. Driven these MANY times. If you have a good map(Gazetteer) most small roads are listed so it is hard to get lost. GPS isn't as reliable out there in the boonies. I was wondering if anyone has checked out this area or goes there. I am planning to remote camp near this area next summer. I need to be in a tent overnight in this area and stay up all night and listen to any noises and do some wood knocking and calls and see if I get anything.

Sailgirl......you could try plotting all reports from 50mi either side of a line from Phillips to Cloquet MN and include dates and descriptions. I always wondered if this was a travel corridor for bf going north/south around the big lake (superior). There seems to be quite a few reports around Cloquet and I always wondered if these reports were bf traveling from/to northern MN and the large farming areas of WI. If you could plot a pattern based on time of year, this may give you an idea of when and where to set up.

Your land isn't that far from mine and if I am up there next summer, I could come down for a night or 2 and do some fishing along with bf ing. Good luck! UPs

There also have been many reports from the Hayward, Seely, Cable, Clam Lake "Triangle". This is more Northwest of Phillips. There have been many stories of sightings just south of there in the Lac Courte Oreilles Indian Reservation ( Lake Chippewa) in Sawyer county. Even south of there in the Rice Lake area has been a hotspot in the 90's. I had a 4 day campout in this area in Sept 2004. Just west of Rice Lake is the popular Cumberland area that was hot for sightings in the 80's and 90's. In my opinion, the triangle area of Hayward to Park Falls to Rice Lake is the best area in WI for activity. It is a very large area for us on a map, but for Bigfoot migration possibly from Northern MN is very good area that they come to. I have heard of sightings near or in Jay Cooke State Park/Wrenshall area. It is a very large remote, swampy and forested area. Beautiful up there...I have been to Duluth and Superior many times. I will have to pay attention to the months of these sightings and see if there is any correlation that would support a migrational pattern.

I know that BFRO have bought property up near Phillips, via Wally Hersom.

They were trying to grow bamboo on it too.

Growing bamboo in WI? Hmmm, let me know how that works out LOL  But, interesting thread nevertheless!

Hello SAIL GIRL,

 

You can take a look at this if you like. There's not too many sightings and they're a bit older but it may help some:

Seems they would have better luck with their intent with snow peas.

Hey Sailgirl!  Long time!  Take a drive down 13 and about 1/2 way between Fifield and Phillips is Lugerville Grade Road.  Take that back (can only turn west) to F and then go south (I think it is) a little ways to Swamp Road on the west.  Swamp Rd ends up private drives back to cabins, but it's a great place to see. If I'm wrong and it's north to Swamp Road, you'll know because you don't get to any towns.  I do know Swamp Rd is just a little south of Lugerville, such as it is.

 

I went to Copper Falls this summer and then drove over to Clam Lake on County GG.  That looked like a great place to explore because there are all kinds of camps and boat landings off on intersecting roads that look like they don't go anywhere.

 

Watch out for the bears and wolves up there, especially with your dog.  Personally, I don't give much credence to the BFRO reports from around there, but I can't say why on here.  I've been spending more time down around Rusk/Sawyer Counties, but I've been thinking of taking a trip up there sometime yet this year.

Just Curious-  Yep I have been down these roads, many times. GG is very cool and so is following F off of HWY 13. I love Copper Falls State Park!!! So beautiful there....been there like 3 times. Brought my sister and her kids up there 3 years ago, they loved it. gonna bring a friend up there next summer so she can see the waterfalls. I put our land up for sale this July so I am hoping if it sells, I want to find something closer to home so we don't have a 4 hour drive. It is just too far away for us to make it up there enough. I like it because it is so close to Bigfoot hotspots. There was a sighting near Clam Lake in 2005 that is only a 20min drive from our land.

FWIW we had some BF activity along the Mississippi down near Alma; rocks being clacked at midnight just outside the window of a remote cabin we were in. 

 

A friend of mine also reported some activity just north of Interstate State Park; rocks being thrown at campers on an island in the St. Croix above Taylor's Falls, along with twig snaps and vocalizations that sounded sort of like a person trying to imitate the talk of the campers, but with various syllables missing. They were pretty freaked out but there were a lot of dangerous rocks in the riverso they thought it too dangerous to leave the island until dawn. They stayed awake all night.

 

I am thinking the river woodlands are a corridor. There are a number of reports near Danbury as well.

You heard about the " getting tree'd " experience right Northern Lights ? ;)

Yes, I'm very familiar with that story.  He took a group of us to the "tree" to show us where it happened.  That was my first expedition so I was willing to believe just about anything that I was told, but in looking back on it, now I'm not convinced it ever happened.  I'm not going to go into details but let's just say I've learned quite a bit since then.

Sail, I've spent quite a lot of time in that area, mostly as a guest at Boyd's Resort just W of Park Falls. The resort has several hundred acres of old growth forest, adjacent to state forest and loaded with little lakes and ponds. Their property is just across 70 from the N fork of the Flambeau. Been going there since the mid-1980s. In 1986, while night fishing the undeveloped S end of Long Lake, my friends and I listened to something none of us had heard before or since. Screams that sounded like a woman which had volume that was unbelievable. We thought the sound could be heard for miles. We never thought bigfoot back then, but felt the animal that made the screams must have been several hundred pounds, not something small like a rabbit, porcupine, or deer. Years later, having heard recordings of reported BF screams, it hit me. That is what we heard that night years earlier. There is nothing but forest for miles and miles around Boyds, but I think the area could be a key spot due to the fact that they have a HUGE herd of deer there that they feed with specific crops meant to attract deer and due to their prohibition for hunting. This deer feeding has gone on for decades and many deer can be approached. The resort also has a dump site on the property where table scraps are hauled off every day. Why a BF wouldn't be somewhere in this area is beyond me. If I were looking for BF, this would be an area I'd definitely spend some time. Brian
