This section automatically collects news feeds with the words bigfoot, sasquatch and yeti in them - as such, some articles about people with big feet and monster trucks are bound to get through, so try and sort the wheat from the chaff.
Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
Potentially, yeah. I'd expect so. I think it is worth looking into.
Applying the notion to my spots would fail ... what I'd want to do is fly the lakes with a drone. Water depth is often less than 20 feet and water clarity is such that anything new on the bottom would be pretty obvious, however, it's almost all within wilderness boundaries so we're back to the same problem as before regarding drones: no legal operating window. Mask and snorkel could work in late summer after the water .. or at least the near-surface water .. has warmed to non-fatal levels.
I find the idea appealing.
Same through this area…old logging and forestry roads crisscross our current area. Many of them are too far gone even for 4 wheel drive vehicles, but they are usually easier to navigate on foot then just busting through the brush.
A lot of the national and state parks/forests used to be private property with inhabitants…before the residents were kicked off of their land by the government. If you pay attention to the lay of the land, you can often tell where old dirt roads or cleared spots for cabins used to be. We have found possible Sasquatch tracks on some of these old, overgrown roads before.
