Researchers hot on the trail of the fabled creature "Bigfoot" have arrived in the Upper Peninsula.

About a dozen members of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization will be in the woods of Marquette County this week, with more extensive exploration planned for the weekend.

They plan to meet with witnesses this evening near the Gitche Gumee Campground.

The members have brought with them high-tech gear like night vision goggles, thermal imaging cameras and digital audio recorders.

Search organizer Matt Moneymaker says the public can help in the search for "Sasquatch" by sharing the stories of their possible encounters.

    Stop looking for me. If I wanted human contact I would shop at Meijers instead of the Krogers on Coolidge.

    I once thought I saw a bigfoot; however it turned out to be a hallucination brought on by the demon alcohol.

    Maybe this will help tourism (right).

    It's probably just a big raccoon that people are seeing.

    I think I remember hearing something about a Bigfoot sighting in Escanaba in early June. Anyone else have more info on that?

    I'm having a very hard time believing any of this.
