There seem to be a number of stories of Bigfoot sightings in Maine. Who'd a thunk it? I Googled Bigfoot in Maine and was surprised to see a number of sighting reports, some fairly recent(and close to where I live). There's even a cryptozoology museum in Portland now run by a man by the name of Loren Cole. The Cryptozoologist: Cryptozoology. He has a very interesting website with many stories of Bigfoot sightings in the State. There is an on going report from a man in the Richmond area who tells of a family of Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) he has been keeping track of between Durham and Richmond for a period of more than a decade now. Seen one? Believe in them? Think it's a load of BS?

B.S.
Right up there with the Loch Ness monster, space aliens, and haunted houses.

I'll jump when something unexpectedly screeches, howls, or crashes through bushes near me while I'm out in the woods (the ol' survival responses are still functioning), but I never think it's anything but what it always is --- a very normal animal just doing what animals do.

I love this quote and repeat it to myself when necessary:

"Keep an open mind.......but not so open that your brains fall out"

Loren Coleman has tons of information about weird creatures and other strange things in Maine. He's also the leading authority on the Casco Bay sea serpent.

Let me guess, he also has information on Snow Snakes and Hide-behinds.

The only thing I saw that was close to a Bigfoot in Maine was a logger in Clayton Lake one year. Never shaved, and had shoes that you could swim in.

Don't rightly know for sure. The little buggers hide behind you and when you turn real quick to catch a look, they shoot around to keep in your blind spot. Might catch a glimpse out of the corner of your eye once in a while, but never a good look.

Post One Reason We Want To Go To Maine...

... is that we heard there were Bigfoot tracks up there. It's probably the Number One attraction that Maine would have for us. We've traveled all over the country - all over the world - just looking at Bigfoot tracks, and hoping for a live sighting. We intuitively feel that our chances for a live Bigfoot sighting in Maine are humungously great. Far better than anywhere else in the world. In fact, if you have hide-behinds up there, too, that just about cinches the deal for us!
