Michigan Tracker Says, "No," to Finding Bigfoot

Jan. W. Morse with bear offers guide services in Northern Michigan
through his website
"I guess they were looking for a Dinty Moore type woodsman that could explain tracking techniques to the regulars of the show. " -- Jan W. Morse

Jan. W. Morse, a wilderness guide and taxidermist was born in Ogemaw County, Michigan, he is the descendant of a young French Canadian logger who came to Roscommon County in the late 1880’s to work in the legendary pineries of the Northern Lower Peninsula.

On the online forum, Mr. Morse mention he brief encounter with the producers of Finding Bigfoot. 

Last friday I got a call from one of the production assistants for the Animal Planet show "Finding Bigfoot". It seems they were in the market for a "tracker" in one segment of the show being filmed locally. Our regional DNR biologist had given them my name. I guess they were looking for a Dinty Moore type woodsman that could explain tracking techniques to the regulars of the show. Oh, and they would be mostly on horseback! I told the guy I was more along the lines of a homely fat guy that hadn't sit on a horse in maybe 40 years, not to mention the fact that I'm very camera shy. I declined the job.(payed $200.00 for the afternoon too!) I guess when my 15 minutes of fame come along, I don't want it to be because I was on some goofy show looking for a Squatch! I set them up with a friend of mine that does a little bear guiding. They interviewed him, but turned him down. I don't know who did the tracking for them. My bear guide friend, like me, looks as though he just stepped off the set of the movie "Deliverance" and would have been perfect for the part. The Animal Planet guy laughed when I told him that, then said if my friend looked like Ned Beatty(sp?) that it probably wouldn't work out. I explained to the guy that it was me, with my girth, that would resemble Ned, and that my buddy actually looked like the OTHER guys! Oh well, I guess fame will pass me by once again.

Cliff Barackman's Official Facebook page, North American Bigfoot mentions a master tracker, wonder which tracker they went with instead?

Cliff has released some great photos from his research of the London Tracks. Cliff was one of the first guys on the scene. You can read our sequence of events at our post, "Over 120 Sequential Sasquatch Prints Found South of Eugene" If you want to see great photos and specifics from Cliff Barackman's perspective then you need to head over to Thom Powell, ever the author, writes one of the most gripping narratives of the events at his post titled, "The London Tracks: Where Serendipity Met Synchronicity"

Weekend with Cliff Barackman Video

Last year Cliff Barackman went on a Labor Day Bigfooting It was a weekend to remember.

Suddenly, this camping trip had turned into a bigfooting trip. Thank goodness. It felt so awkward! We headed out to Mt. Hood National Forest to see if we could drum up some bigfooty action. -- Cliff Barackman

Fortunately, Craig Flipy video-taped the whole adventure. You may remember Craig and Cliff were both in a an episode of Bob Saget's show, Strange Days.

The embedded video below has some great bigfooting gems provided by Cliff Barackman.

2010 Countdown, 10 days of Appreciation: Day 02 Cliff Barackman

We want to spend the final days of 2010 appreciating those who have supported us this year. Three years ago, we could of never hoped for this much success. Our only goal was to search, dig and find the most topical Bigfoot news, make a modest mark and if we were lucky contribute value to the community.

We will save the last day for our fans, without your tips comments and suggestions we wouldn't have the mass appeal we have. For now, we would like to recognize Cliff Barackman.

Hands down. No one has taught us more about the 'Squatch then Cliff Barackman. His approach that there are no absolutes and multiple possibilities enables him to have an encyclopedic knowledge of Sasquatch theories at the tip of his tongue.

In a single sitting he can share any trait attributed to Sasquatch and credit where the data came from. When your out in the field with him, its even better. Cliff has been a great supporter of Bigfoot Lunch Club and we would like to thank him by listing his most popular blog posts of all time.

Thank you Cliff for making this one of the greatest years ever.
