Michael Wood/ Western Washington Bigfoot Trackers
Michael Wood grew up in Shinglehouse, PA a very small farm town in Potter County where all his childhood he was very interested in the unknown, especially Bigfoot. Then there was not much material on the subject but his interest did not die but was merely shelved until many years later after he served in the Navy on Submarines at Bangor Sub base in Washington. Now Michael works for Lockheed maintaining one of the largest IBM blade farms in the United States. Raised up hunting and fishing, he was impressed by the vast forests of Washington State and took up his childhood interests once again in more ways than one. In 2005, Michael was on his first elk hunt on Cougar Mt. By Wynoochee, WA. When he realized Bigfoot was very real when he found a fresh track with five toes measuring 17”long and 9 ½” wide. When he told of the experience, he was laughed at further fueling his desire to prove their existence. A few months later, again elk hunting on Mt. Octopus just south of the Hoh Rainforest, Michael had the scariest encounter to date. While doing cow calls to a bull elk, he realized he was not the only one hunting that bull when he heard a very loud scream. Not sure of what it was, he did another call and was returned with another scream must closer. Michael decided to head back to his jeep when something very large started making its way toward him breaking large tree branches. This is when the Western Washington Bigfoot Trackers began. Michael assembled three friends from work and they began researching around their work schedules. Michael learned html and created a website:http://www.wwbft.com/ which paid off with new reports and new associates. In June 2009, the team was filmed for the new series American Monsters.
