Hey I live right on the lake (northshore) and they had one circling a pretty large area a couple of days ago. This was at around 3 am it woke me out of my sleep. I went outside to check it out but I couldn't make anything out in the dark.. Just the spotlight that was shining from it. At first I thought police searching for someone, but the area was very large that they were concentrating on. It did have a odd sound to it that made me think it was military. I have seen heard other helis before but this one sounded unique.

About a couple months ago I was getting some unusual helicopter traffic. Every 10 - 15 minutes one heli would do a flyby right over my house. The bird was pretty close to the ground to, I could tell because the windows were doing some rattling. I couldn't tell if the helicopter was military or police.
I've seen Apaches before, circling over my neighborhood and the outlying areas. They were painted black and appeared to be patrolling, some would just hover. I didn't understand why military patrol would be needed for a quiet residential area.

Choppers are very often used at this time of the year to hunt for marijuana fields. often hidden in the middle corn fields and the like. They will work with special cameras like IR and others to find the "Weed" and destroy it.
I think that folks are over reacting here

I noticed unusual helicopter activity yesterday (or maybe the day before). I sa a low flying chinook circling overhead and landing pretty close by.
It's the first time I've ever seen one of those. Hmm....
