Who knows YET.. However, there does seem to be more and more sightings of the critter, from just about everywhere.....One would think EVERYONE who has sighted them couldn't be a nut, they are seeing something!

I been watching the show on tv about tracking down big foot and I swear I laugh hysterically the whole time!! I wish I could get paid to just camp out, and play on the river and in the woods all the time!!! Talk about dream job!! ;)

Sometimes I wonder if most aren't just faking it though? Lol! I mean with all the sightings you'd think just one could come up with real evidence, I mean shoot the critter and get rich proving it exist and then tell us if he taste like chicken or something lol!!!!

I wish there was proof of a bigfoot though. I think the whole idea of one or even many existing would be very, very interesting. Something like that could possibly send the theory of evolution into a whole new dimension maybe, who knows.
BUT, we see criminals caught on the run in the woods quite often by law enforcement. Just seems to me that if you truly wanted to prove or disprove any of this, instead of camping out in the woods and hoping you stumble acroos a bigfoot, you could get a group of people together to perform the exact same acts one would use to catch a criminal in the forest. I realize that you wouldn't have much to go off of in a way of a known scent for dogs and maybe a lack of other certain things, but damn you'd think that bigfoot would be leaving behind a fairly unique scent for good tracking dogs, i just can't fathom how if there is such a thing, no one has been able to prove it! Damn when i was just a kid i always heard stories about this bigfoot. If the thing is real, it is one extremely smart Mo-Fo!!

Has anyone considered this aspect? It is quite possible that the so-called bigfoot might be some people that are hermits and recluses who live in the fashion of the old "mountain men". Thay would be so attuned to nature and their surroundings that all you could possibly do would be to catch a glimpse of them. The "hairiness" could be clothing made of skins.

I think Bigfoot is real. So many eye witnesses. There must be something to the legend.

YEP.. probably...They do NOW claim DNA "evidence" or testing, but for some reason, NOT conclusive....So basically NO evidence yet:)....
Kind of like UFO's.....get one, put it on a courthouse lawn somewhere and put the question to rest:)

True, but I just read a story in the paper concerning a man who went into the Cranberry back country for a four day excursion on May 23rd I think it was... He never came out...I have done a little hiking in that area myself and it IS very remote.
Not EVEN saying a bigfoot done him in, but the article pointed out the fact a hundred miles of trails were checked and the comment was made a plane crashed in the area one time, and it wasn't found for a DECADE....Point being, it would be a possibility that critters COULD exist in remote areas..

Descriptions of trolls pretty much fit the descriptions of bigfoot. If there have been any sightings in W.V. of bigfoot that means ICKIE escaped.

If you are familiar with Marlinton, WV, you can start near there where Cranberry Glades is located and take the road at the end of the glades into part of it..(You can walk or bike)....It is sixteen miles through that part of the area to a campground near Richwood WV......
The other way naturally would be to START at Richwood and hike back toward Cranberry Glades...
This is but a small area of the back country of course, but there are many trails throughout the area.... For more info. I'm sure anyone in the area can be more specific...
There is also a visitor center going out of Marlinton where you can get information.....Hope that helps:)

would love to believe it but can't..... no body has ever been found. That's the missing link to me. Now, I agree with one above poster, they may think they see a big foot. Some of those mountain mean be awful hairy and scary!
