Sightings near river valleys

While recently visiting a website,, after they said they had updated their database of Alaskan reports, I realized that I could easily enter these reports as pins on Google Earth. After entering all the reports from 1991 – present, a clear pattern began to form. There were a few areas that stood out with groupings of reports. The Ketchikan area, 22 reports from 1998 – 2011 and Klawock/Klawock Lake area, 7 reports from 1995 – 2001. The Klawock Lake area in particular had very specific locations noted along the road that along the lake itself. If anyone interested in bigfoot research happens to be in the area, you should check those locations out. Outside of the Prince of Wales area, I noticed that most other reports happened along river valleys, and coastal areas (beaches and coastlines). This was particularly interesting, since some foresaw that bigfoot lived in the higher mountain areas. Now, of course, you cannot conclude that bigfoot must only live in the river valleys because that is where most of the reports are gathered. This could just be because the river valleys are where the larger concentration of people live, work, and hunt.

Another surprise was how there seemed to be no reports from the North Slope area, where the drilling companies are. One would expect at least one or two. There would be no lack of food, with large caribou herds, seals, and other fuzzies running around.

Other areas of note would be the Tok area, 15 in all, mostly around the river near the highway, including a recent grouping near Border City, 7 in all, of tracks between 2003 – 2013. Hydaburg had 5 reports between 1994 – 2004. The river area around Bethel had 7 reports from 1999 – 2012. Denali Park entrance area had 5 from 1992 – 2010. Another surprise was that there were no current reports from my neck of the woods in Alaska. One would think with the concentration of people would result in a number of reports with the higher percentange chance of interaction.

The points of reports posed an interesting question because one would think that there would be more reports in the outlying areas of the larger cities: Anchorage, Mat-Su, Fairbanks, Juneau, and there weren’t. However, the other reports weren’t isolated and in the middle of the woods, either. The reports were your typical “crossing the road,” “saw at the beach,” “saw on a trail” type reports in areas where there were towns and cabins. Hopefully, as word gets out, more people will report sightings, and with a great site just for Alaskans, like, more data can be gained.
