Everywhere yet nowhere.

But again, the BFRO reports are not all sightings! Some are simply alleged sounds or smells or prints or nests, etc. How can a researcher not see that or include that bit of important information.

From a brief data compilation I did on the BFRO database:

*Note* All reports are assigned a classification of A, B or C by the BFRO. However, even though BFRO lists these as “Sightings by Region” on the sidebar menu on it’s main page, a report listing for a state does not necessarily mean it was a sighting report where the witness actually saw the animal clearly.

Some “A” reports listed only refer to footprints even a handprint in one I came across. “B” reports may refer to poor visibility, or sounds, smells, sign, missing livestock, etc.

In the 11 states listed below with the most reports, 50% are B with a few C.

Now overlap the range of bears and you might see a correlation.

Wrong overlay the map of UFO Sightings with A Class Bigfoot Sightings and there you have a correlation. Trust me i have done it on Google Earth.

Thanks for the update. I guess they like the eastern side of the US.

There are various types of encounters, my only experience, because I don't know if it was a Bigfoot or not, was with a smell. Which was like being down wind from a dozen Frenchmen who'd just finished player volleyball. Which is why I'd be hesitant to even call it an encounter.

Exactly, and neither should databases label them "sightings" when they are not.

That's really the crux of it, isn't it? I suppose I could have screamed that I saw Bigfoot but the truth is what I experienced could be easy explained by something other than a Bigfoot.

Not only that but I would think that an actual sighting would at least be more noteworthy than just getting a whiff of something.

It's pretty interesting seeing all these encounters gathered together and organised, do you reckon it supports the existence of Bigfoot?

Only once in 100 years has someone reported spotting a Sasquatch in the state of Maine?  Looking at that map, that is the place where the sports go hunting and fishing, so likely one of them got all liquored up, sighted a black bear on its hind legs and thought it was a Sasquatch.

High sitings in southeast Arizona?  Maybe they're looking for silver!

Not only that, but I think we should really question these sightings lists especially when someone can post anonymously without any follow up.
