Last week a video surfaced near Provo, Utah of what some are calling the latest in a long history of reported Bigfoot sightings. The first known written account of a Bigfoot-type creature in the western territory of the U.S. appeared in 1811 in a journal of a surveyor and trader from the Northwest Company of Canada. The earliest account published in a newspaper was seen in the Exeter Watchman of New York on September 22, 1818.

Whether you use the name Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Blue Man, or the Abominable Snowman, there have been reports of sightings of a giant bipedal creature in the woods from the Pacific Northwest through the Rocky Mountains, the Ozarks, the Appalachians, and into the hills of New York for generations.

In the Ozark Mountains there are numerous reports made each year of sightings, encounters and evidence. Just this year two sightings from Leflore County in Oklahoma were reported to the Bigfoot Research Organization (, and multiple sightings have been reported throughout the Northwest Arkansas region in the last ten years. There is even a website specifically for Ozarks Bigfoot enthusiasts.

If you are interested in hunting for “Squatch” (as veterans like to call him) there are organized excursions available on the BFRO website. All you need is some trusty camping equipment, good boots, $300-500, and an open mind. We can help you get equipped for the trip, but unfortunately can’t give you much in the way of Bigfoot expertise. But when you are on your 2nd day with no leaks in your tent, hot coffee in your camp pot, and a good night’s sleep in your brand new sleeping bag, you’ll be the envy of your group. Don’t forget to take a camera!
