Bigfoot sightings in the Ozark Mountains :: the areas we research ... the RED TRIANGLE
Bigfoot has been sighted thousands of times throughout North America, mainly in the United States and Canada. Most sightings have been in the Pacific Northwest in the states of Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and British Columbia, Canada. But there are many sightings all over the rest of the country... Including the Ozarks!
According to this map below, Bigfoot’s favorite haunts in the United States appear to the Ohio River Valley, Mississippi River Valley, the Sierra Nevada mountains, central Florida and the Pacific Northwest. Right away, you can see that sightings are not evenly distributed, there are distinct regions where sightings are incredibly common, despite a very sparse population. The map below, which uses reports from 1921 to 2012, shows a plethora of supposed sightings in the Pacific Northwest, the Ohio River Valley, central Florida, the Sierra Nevada mountain range and the Mississippi River Valley.The analysis also includes a chronological timeline showing a rise in reported sightings in the late 1970s. Another spike in reported Bigfoot sightings occurred between 2000 and 2009.
The BFRO database shows the following 15 states with the most sightings reported:
1. Washington – 528
2. California – 425
3. Oregon – 227
4. Ohio – 224
5. Florida – 207
6. Illinois – 176
7. Michigan – 141
8. Colorado – 110
9. New York – 101
10. Pennsylvania – 98
11. Missouri – 92
12. Kentucky – 85
13. Tennessee – 85
14. North Carolina – 78
15. Arkansas – 76
We focus on the
Midwest Bigfoot sightings and evidence. While most people associate
Bigfoot with the Pacific Northwest. The number of sightings and
research being done in the states of Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma
are substantial. Our greatest area of interest is the Ozark Plateau
(Ozarks Highlands) and immediate surrounding area because that's
where we live.
The Ozark Highlands is a 47,000 square mile area usually referred to as the "Ozark Mountains."
It is considered the most extensive mountain range between the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains, and coupled with the Ouachita Mountains is called officially the "United States Interior Highlands" (though the U.S. Geologic Survey also calls it the "Ozark-Ouchita Interior Highlands"). The area is dated as the oldest land mass area of the United States, categorized as "Paleozoic age carbonate" by the USGS. A theory generated by date matching is that the Appalachias were once connected to the Ozark-Ouchita mountains, with the Texas' Marathon Mountains on the far Western side.
The Ozark Mountains - Ozark Highlands - Ozarks Plateau - all the same place and all home to Bigfoot
As you can see from the map below, the Ozarks highlands are densely forested with hundreds of miles of lakes. The area is rich in trees and vegetation, is sparsely populated and is a perfect wildlife habitat.
We investigate the numerous sightings in what we call the RED TRIANGLE (each square on the map below is a confirmed reported sighting of Bigfoot). The Ozark mountains have had so many sightings that it's very common for them to not even be reported by locals. People in the Ozarks understand that the terrain, the woods and lakes are so dense and unpopulated that there could absolutely be an animal that exists and thrives but remains unseen by most people.
