Hahahaha, I know it sounds ridiculous. Me and a friend are looking to go "bigfoot hunting", more for fun than anything, but I was just curious to see if there are any other "squatchers" out there. I have property about 40 miles NE of Asheville, and it seems a lot of sightings happen in that area. Any info/tips would be appreciated

I don't find it funny at all. The Panda was sighted for many years before we finally caught one and proved it existed. That said, I'm not sure where you'd go to find a Bigfoot. Western NC (far away from any large towns) seems like a good place to start.

Though the Cherokee legends include a bigfoot story (which they called "The Hairy Men of the Balds" cause they reportedly lived on the tops of the mountains) I wouldn't put much stock in finding anything anywhere but the far west. (Northern CA, Oregon, Washington and up into Canada)

Check BFRO web page for sightings around here if you don't want to travel and just want to get out in the woods.

Oh, and the terms 'squatch and 'squatchers just grates on my nerves for some reason.

Sounds like a symptom of a particularly rough social disease.



"What is is doc? Is it bad?"

"'Fraid so, son. Looks like you got a terminal case of the 'squatch."

I think you would have an easier time finding big cats around here, even though the officials say they're no longer in the area ... old timers will swear till they're blue in the face that they're still around.

I gotta agree with everyone else, when I saw the topic, my first thought was, "Pacific Northwest"

Actually, I've heard that the forests of Madison County are well-regarded by bigfoot hunters.

I immediately thought Pacific NW as well. I was totally unaware that we even had Big Foot stories here. Now I do have a panther story, and all those "officials" who deny the existence as they did when I called to report it can just suck it. We don't have places called Panther Gap or a football team named after them for no reason.
