The Travel Channel has released a list of the US states in which you are most likely to encounter Sasquatch.
Based on "never-before-released data" gathered by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), the list provides a general ranking of Bigfoot's most common stomping grounds.

At the very top of the list is Washington State - home to several prominent sightings.

"With a whopping 2,032 sightings and counting, this is the world's most active region," the Travel Channel reported. "The most popular places to catch a glimpse include the Blue Mountains, Okanogan County - or better yet, Ape Canyon - the locale of one of the most aggressive Bigfoot encounters ever recorded."

California ranks second with 1,697 sightings, followed by Pennsylvania with 1,340.

The complete list is as follows:
  • Washington (2,032)
  • California (1,697)
  • Pennsylvania (1,340)
  • Michigan (1,131)
  • New York (1,068)
  • Ohio (1,042)
  • Oregon (1,009)
  • Texas (806)
The Travel Channel's new show - In Search of Monsters - airs Wednesdays at 9:00pm ET/PT.

Not doubt there are different dimensions, just don't see any evidence of traveling between them. I'd say it would take some rather exotic technology to do so. Jmo

  Just food for thought here:  It took humans a long time and some "exotic technology" before man could fly. Birds could do it all along. Ditto for breathing under water. The lesson is, just because humans do not have a natural ability to do something does not mean all animals do not as well. So I think of it as possible that a creature - say BF, can traverse the dimensions by its own innate ability

you really are way off on your judgements of me, if a person has belief bf is real more power to them.  i have zero interest debating anything, i do discuss from time to time, and get bored and move on if the person is based in blind faith and or a troll, lots of true dear true believers get all butthurt because like in this subject i see no evidence of bigfoot being a living creature, yet i would love to be mistaken and proven wrong, not sure why that upsets some but it does.

Right but it would be the only creature on the planet with that natural ability. That makes it highly unlikely. To me anyways.

flight has devolved on earth many times and similar ways with very different species, we are very aware of it, need any proof at all a person only has to walk outside and watch for a few minutes and creatures will fly by. not the case with the "traverse the dimensions" theory, which most all that is based on blind faith belief no proof or evidence to support it.

I was faced with the same dilemma of course, quite some time ago.  The first crypto I thought of was the giant black bird that is seen from time to time. Does that species of black bird also have that ability?  And if so, is it possible that many species that we know little or nothing about have such an ability?? If such creatures do exist it is obvious that we could not get close enough to them to capture them. Personally, I think that since BF sticks out like a sore thumb, it is the one we know the best. Evidences such as foot prints. voice prints, ongoing and systemic sightings, DNA of Yeti... [More]

"yeti" from dna and 100s of years of local monks saying so is a type of bear.  alleged bigfoot is always described as a bi pedial hair covered large hominid, does sound like a bear type. and evidence is very weak, eye witness accounts are not reliable,  voice prints , foot prints both can and are faked, or misidentified even chilcutt who based his reputation on his dermal ridge findings faded out when it was proven prints he said must be real were know fakes. so then we come back to zero proof or evidence of the alleged creature existing much less proof it can "traverse the dimensions"  so it ...

That's not what I was talking about

There's plenty of evidence for something, but what that something is remains unclear. Inconclusive at best. A friend cast a sweet print on High Knob Va. It kinda creeped me out when I looked at it close. The toes were bent and splayed and whatever made it had a divergent little toe. It was about 18" in length. I've heard things, seen manipulation of the environment, footprints etc. but nothing concrete or verifiable. Even the fun I had isn't verifiable lol The latest is the discovery of Denisovan fossils in a cave in Tibet. It's also interesting to note that scientist mistook the molars of Den... [More]
