NC bigfoot sightings, NC bigfoot, North Carolina, sasquatch, swamp ape, wild man, report sightings

NC has a long history of bigfoot encounters and reports. I have had 3 reported to me in the past year and I have recently learned of more. Even though North Carolina is the tenth most populous state, most of that population is centered in the piedmont along the I 85 corridor. NC is growing, but there are vast expanses of woodland and swamps in the mountains and eastern part of the state. There is an area of NC that I have been examining more closely and I am gathering more information for a possible expedition. It has a long history of encounters and is an ideal bigfoot habitat.

 Will Duncan, in his article “Predictability of Homin Behaviour”, reveals the ideal habitat of NC:        

“In the United States, sasquatches have been reported in every state except Hawaii. It is important that many are reported in Ohio and in North Carolina, two states where I’ve personally looked for them. Ohio has vast populated areas in the north and wooded hills in the south. Both areas get plenty of sightings. This suggests that the sasquatches don’t mind living in proximity to people, and feel confident about avoiding them most of the time. In North Carolina, by contrast, there are huge areas of woods, hills, swamps and mountains, and very few sasquatch reports. I think they are there, but have so much room to easily hide that almost nobody sees them. Any prediction of total sasquatch numbers resumes more knowledge of their nature than we presently have. They seem to be able to live all over the country, often in close proximity to people, and yet remain unproven. Apes would not be capable of this.”

Bigfoot, sasquatch, Don Keating, EOBIC, Operation Appalachia

Don Keating is a bigfoot researcher based out of Ohio. He has been actively researching, presenting seminars and seeking the elusive creature in it’s habitat for years. I first contacted Don over 5 years ago about a bigfoot encounter in Ohio that was reported to my then existing website. Since then I have been included in bigfoot news and local encounters through the group we are involved in, Operation Appalachia. Operation Appalachia is a joint effort of bigfoot researchers and enthusiasts mainly on the east coast, but also includes others. In 2007, several reports from North Carolina were reported to me to follow up on.

Don has a radio show on the internet and usually has an interesting guest with experience in the field of research. Listeners can call in and ask questions or even report an encounter. For more information on the radio show visit:

Don Keating’s organization is Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Investigation Center and you can visit it at:

If you think you have had an encounter with bigfoot on the east coast or anywhere, contact Operation Appalachia and a researcher close to you will follow up and respect your privacy:

Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Patterson film, Jeff Meldrum

The most famous picture of bigfoot is the famous Patterson film taken at Bluff Creek in California in October 1967. The film has been talked about, commented on and analyzed for many years. Many people have been quick to jump to the conclusion that it was a man in a suit, without doing any work to scientifically analyze the film. I have looked at the film, frame by frame many times and have watched many documentaries about it. With only a cursory examination, and a few facts about human and ape anatomy, it was clear that this was no human in a costume. The muscles show rippling in movement, the gait is not human, the feet can be seen clearly and the face has been analyzed with modern day techniques. This is clearly another primate and not a human or gorrila. Much of the evidence has been in the form of footprints and in many cases they have revealed dermal ridges that are not characteristic of human foot prints. These have been evaluated by forensic experts. Enough of what I know. Dr. Jeff Meldrum of the University of Idaho has been researching bigfoot for many years and has collected many footprints casts and other evidence. He has written a book, “Sasquatch, Legend Meets Science.” In the book he explains the scientific approach he has taken to bigfoot research. Below are 2 links to listen to Dr. Jeff Meldrum being interviewed.

The following is a link to an analysis by Dr. Meldrum of the anatomy of bigfoot feet and locomotion:

Bigfoot, sasquatch facts and information

Bigfoot sightings have occurred and been recorded for hundreds of  years over many regions of the world.
Sightings in the U.S. don’t just occur in the Pacific Northwest.
They have been sighted over much of the continental U.S.
These creatures, though apparently curious about humans, generally  avoid human contact. However, if their territory is violated,  they can become quite hostile and dangerous. Some people, including  myself, believe that the bigfoot inhabiting the Southeast, are  more hostile, due to the increased infringement by humans on their  habitat.
Males, females, youths and apparent elderly bigfoot have been  identified.
The “classic” male height estimate is 7 1/2 – 8 feet tall, with
 reports as tall as 10 – 14 feet.
The typical weight guess for the 8 foot creature is 350-450 pounds.
They are covered in hair several inches in length ranging in color  from reddish brown to black, with an occasional sighting of white  or grey.
Habitats are typically remote mountainous, state or national wooded  parks or swamp land. They have been spotted outside these areas  crossing roads, farmland, in residential areas and even in  commercial areas.

Bigfoot Sasquatch, research, sightings, report sightings

I am a bigfoot researcher from North Carolina. I had a website years ago that was devoted to providing information on bigfoot and collecting sighting and encounter reports. Due to the responsibilities of family, earning a living and the declining health of my father, I abandoned the website several years ago but never abandoned my interest in bigfoot. I have never personally seen bigfoot, but have talked to those who have and have had encounters. I have spent countless hours studying reports from all over the world and examining photos and other evidence. I have been on some fact finding excursions in the pacific northwest as well as North Carolina where I am based. I believe that bigfoot is real and lives in a large area of the world. My best guess is that there are at least 5000 in North America. There is solid documented evidence of their existence, such as hair samples and footprint castings with unique dermal ridges. Although I am based in North Carolina, sincere reports from any location are welcome. If you are about hoaxes or wasting time with jokes, please don’t waste my time or yours.
