Cook County Rendezvous

Cook County Rendezvous

There have been several reports lately of sightings, footprints from two separate locations, numerous stick structures and vocalizations all within the forest preserves in the 4 northeastern counties of Illinois.

I have been on location at Bachelors Grove in rural Cook County, Illinois four times since early November 2010.  Normally I am not interested in stick structure, teepees, tree twists or arched over trees. It is difficult for me to differentiate between what is storm caused, human activity or something else.

Bachelors Grove however impressed me.  What I found very odd is that there is an area of the woods that is almost devoid of any vegetation or leaves. The area has trees of all sizes and logs, lots of logs strewn around.  I am told by local researchers that new structures periodically show up overnight, and that the logs are moved around. Many of these logs would take a lot of effort to move, something that I would find very unusual for humans to be able to do.

The area that is devoid of vegetation is about 100 by 100 feet. When I stand there I get the impression that it is a very unusual spot, almost like it is an area where something happens. And by that I mean I just get the impression that it is perhaps a rendezvous area. There has been much speculation over the years about sasquatch social structure. I normally try to steer clear of speculation when it comes to why sasquatch do what they do or what their  lives are like when there are no witness reports to back up our ideas.

This new structure was built between the first part of December, when I had last visited the area and the first part of April. It is approximately 12 feet by 12 feet by about 8 feet high. Pictures are a very poor way to visualize such an open structure.

What impressed me was the construction. I will not go into details because of the problem with hoaxers or people coming forward and claiming they had built it. If someone believes they either built it or it is of human construction then they can contact me with an explanation of the details of its design. I tried to lift the heavier crosspieces and was unable to even budge them.

Most areas in the out-of-doors do not bother me, but this location effects me in the same way as the Little Big Horn area of Montana, I just get the feeling that something has happened here. Not foreboding but I just wonder what goes on at 3 am when most of  mankind is asleep.

    The stick structures look like tents to me. Are they mimicking the campers they might have observed thru the years?

      I have almost no knowledge about what these structures are for. Obviously they don't offer any protection from the weather. I don't believe they mimicking humans. I believe they use some stick structures for territory markers or markers to show others in the group where they have been. Tough to figure out.

    Territory markers…They come in all shapes and sizes….the small ones perhaps are made by baby squatches imitating big daddys larger markers like the one in your photos.

    Stan, for what it’s worth I did a little survey one day last month while we drove from Williamsburg VA to Clemmons NC. It was before any leaves came on the trees and I was merely a passenger so I took the opportunity to scan the trees alongside the highway. I looked through the rows of trees as the car whizzed past looking for any trees bent over in that curve that is so often associated with sasquatch activity. I figured since all the trees I was seeing were in a very exposed position it would be very unlikely for sasquatch to be doing anything with them, so any tree bows or stick structures I saw would no doubt be caused by some natural event like a wind. The fact is I saw NO trees that were bowed down or broken off and nothing I would call a stick structure. This seems to be to be fairly strong evidence that when you find a tree that is bowed down to the ground or broken off you are very likely seeing something that may have been done by sasquatch. Seeing no tree bows or breaks along all that distance with good visibility deep within the tree lines makes be believe that any of that sort of thing one findes must be evidence of some actor like a sasquatch. Hope that makes sense. Mike Phillips

    I live a couple blocks from the cemetery just off Central Ave and a little south of the Midlothian Turnpike. Tinley creek runs directly through my backyard . One night, maybe around 2:00am I was awakened from a dead sleep from a loud powerful scream coming from the creek area. This creek crosses underneath Central and goes into the same area of woods as Bachelor’s grove.

    I have heard raccoons , owls, coyotes and other varmints, but I never in my life hear anything like this. It had an amplitude to it that was very powerful.

    Also, on a different occasion I took my mountain bike on a dirt trail that starts at Harlem Ave and the Turnpike. I road until I came to a grassy clearing with about a 2-3 foot creek snaking through it. It was a very nice clearing in an otherwise woodsy area. I took a water break and in the distance heard some branches breaking. I looked around and saw nothing . It seemed to be getting louder and closer.

    It sounded like large branches were being snapped, branches too large for a deer. The hair on my neck stood up, and I got the hell outta there.

    Is there Big Foot in Tinley forest of Cook county? I can’t say for sure, but weird stuff goes on there.

      John,

      My hunch is that there is a lot of activity throughout Northeastern Illinois. Lots of forest preserves, wooded streams, wooded bicycle and hiking paths.
