Rapmaster2000: Big whoop. I saw Bigfoot at the Metrodome about 20 years ago.


What you saw was Big Foot the monster truck, but thanks for a great question.

It's a Lazer Beam: Dr.Zom:
Bigfeet are sighted all over the country. Texas, Michigan, Missouri, Florida (but not Maine, curiously). Even Kansas has sightings. I've been reading old newspapers about Kansas sightings from the 19th century for the last few months.

Darn, I haven't seen anything but turkeys, coyotes, and a bobcat. I need to start putting out some candy bars.


The Lawrence area has had several sightings. I knew a guy who saw "something" north of town. He wouldn't say it was Bigfoot but it was tall as a moose.

Here's one from 2000^ though the directions say I-70 when they mean K-10. Make of that what you will.

Another one from 2006. (new window)

Anytime you want to go Bigfoot hunting let me know.

True..just not in NC. Black Bears, yes. Grizzlies..not so much.

Bigfoot certainly lives in the mountains of northern CA. Specifically, Siskiyou wilderness, and the western Marble Mountain wilderness in the Wooley creek canyon. Little north fork of the salmon river, outside of Etna is another good bet if you get out there quietly well off trail.

You think it's a joke or people are crazy, but I suggest you spend a week hiking some of those remote river canyons alone and get back to me. I stick to the high country at this point.

Awesomeness, you're on!

I saw something on the Scenic River Road, the half between Lecompton and Topeka, a few years ago. It was tall and shaggy and poked it's head through the tree row, saw the car coming, and disappeared. As far as I know nobody keeps any bison or other livestock in that area and I haven't heard any reports of bears.

ZeroCorpse: Lampmonster: I just left the last bigfoot crying by a tree the other night. He asked me to shoot him, but I didn't have the heart.

Obscure? No.

Apparently, even if you do shoot him, he just gets up and runs away.

He really doesn't mean it when he asks you to shoot him.

/That side-mission really made me feel like a stupid jerk.


You shoulda shot him again. I did and he went down.

/guess why there are goats in the game?

Bigfoot are descended from the scant remnants of Clovis Point Indians who survived the catastrophe 13,000 years ago that caused the extinction of most of the megafauna on the North American continent.
Over numerous generations, population bottlenecks caused the descendants of the surviving Clovis Point Indians to become hairy long-lived giants.
There is a precedent for this kind of mutation: The British Royal family. At least one of Queen Elizabeth's cousins was born a hairy giant that lived to over one hundred years old.

I love that the Florida Bigfoot (aka the Skunk Ape) has the same shaggy hair as the Pacific NW Bigfoot. Never mind that he would overheat in about five minutes, we have to maintain consistency!

If you look closely, you can see she has protrusions on her chest that suggest breasts of Dolly Partonesque proportions. Sorry for the NSFW picture.


What's great about that costume is how they covered everything in fur, but then just cut a big hole in the mask so they could see.

So he puts the camera 60 feet from the candybar because "bigfoot can sense electronic gear" or some such nonsense... What, can't zoom it in? Nono - lets make sure its ambiguous because god knows we wouldn't want to zoom in on the bear/guy in a monkey suit with heating pads.

Eh, I've heard bugling elk make similar sounds, especially when running around and excited. If you spend some time in the places I've mentioned alone and very quiet, you will almost certainly see something with your eyes.

Slives: AmazinTim: I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me.

Wouldn't that just make him a version of a displacer beast?


After putting together the little pieces in all these posts, I think I've figured it out.

Bigfoot is one of those "Predators" from the movies...

Like 9ft tall - Check
Blurry or invisible to cameras or the naked eye - Check
Shows up in thermal imaging - Check
Doesn't leave other Predator corpses - Check

Mystery solved.

I can't defend his camera placement but his MO is to set up the camera and then leave the area so he's not there to zoom.

hbk72777: We have something with a weird high pitched howl here in Concord, who knew it was bigfoot?


It was probably a Screech Owl that made the sounds you heard. Screech Owls can make some just God-awful, scary a$$ noises, and none of the sounds they make are bird-like. They tend to make a long, high pitched scream (hence the term Screech Owl) or they sometimes use a cry that sounds more like a woman's screams. All the sounds that a Screech Owl can make are unpleasantly loud, sudden, and scary as hayell.

These birds are native to NC, but they live mostly in the Appalachians. I live near Hickory NC, and we do have Screech Owls living hereabouts. Hickory's not too far from Concord.

First time I ever heard a Screech Owl was when I was 10. My family was camping in the Linville Gorge, and I got up in the middle of the night to water a tree. I was just outside the camp when a Screech Owl let 'er rip, good and loud. I didn't soil myself, but it was a near thing. Seriously though, I thought there a Bigfoot was in the woods.

/Cool story, huh?

Rawry: Jesús Aceves is a good example of Hypertrichosis. His sister has is too. Last read she was still young, but if you like hairy girls look her up.

Thanks, I've been aware of hypertrichosis for quite some time now. During the 1970's there was a Bigfoot scare in Burbank, California. A number of people had seen a huge naked hairy man in the drainage canals. A reporter friend of mine went out to investigate and met the Bigfoot.
The Bigfoot was seven feet tall, hirsute, and had been living off the land nearly his entire life. He was also a Native American and knew enough English to get by. He was exploring the drainage canals looking for foods that were familiar to him. He also took advantage of Salvation Army soup kitchens.
The reason the Bigfoot was there in the first place was because he just wanted to spend the winter somewhere sunny. The last anybody saw of him, he was headed back up north.
There are no apes in the North American fossil record. However, from time to time, Native American graves containing giant skeletons have been found. During the 1800's, every penny ante carnival owner had a giant Indian skeleton in his sideshow. Most of them were fake, a very few of them were real. Most of those have probably ended up being tossed out into the garbage. I imagine that there are a number of modern museums that might have Bigfoot skeletons in their basements and are unaware of what they have.
If you care to look in the archives of the Long Beach Press Telegram, you can see pictures of the Burbank Bigfoot himself.

From my files:

A skeleton of a human being measuring 9 feet four inches was found in a hollow log about three miles east of Louisville, on last Tuesday, by a Mr. Graham, who was at the time cutting wood. An old bow and several arrows were also found in the same log. Upon close examination a hole was found in the skull resembling that made by a leaden ball.

I found this gem on the BFRO website.

"I tell you it was the creepiest thing I've ever heard in my life --the tones it gave off. I've spent a lot of time living in the mountains. I've heard all sorts of animals, but never anything like this.''

"The day after we heard the noise, one of the dogs came back to the yard with something big in her mouth that looked like poop. It was huge. It had hair in it. The smell was really bad. It was really big. I tried to get it out of her mouth with a stick, but she just growled at me. It was definitely a huge poop. It was more like a horse smell than a human smell, but it was definitely not horse poop. The outside almost looked like Slim Jims, like it had a real thin skin. Something about it had that look to it, as if someone was stuffing a sausage."
