Sonoran Sasquatch

The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy has long advocated the position that a large upright primate exists in the most remote confines of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana, particularly the region where those states adjoin. However, it cannot be denied that popular culture strongly identifies Western Canada and the heavily forested parts of the Pacific Northwest as the most likely abode of the sasquatch. Certainly, legends and more contemporary accounts from other parts of North America have been recorded, but reports originating south of the U.S. border are rare.



Bigfoot/Sasquatch Sightings: Correlations to Annual Rainfall Totals, Waterways, Human Population Densities and Black Bear Habitat Zones

In Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, anecdotes about huge, hairy, apelike creatures said to dwell in the deep woods and, occasionally, near the peripheries of rural communities, have accumulated for centuries. Many of these accounts were related by highly reliable and trustworthy individuals, people who had nothing to gain by telling their stories.



Camera Trap Vandals

In April 2006, the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy initiated a long-term camera trap project called Operation Forest Vigil. Study sites were established in two remote areas located in the Ouachita Mountains of Oklahoma/Arkansas and in East Texas. Although both areas are characterized by high rainfall and extensive forest, in addition to long histories of sasquatch sightings, they differ from each other in many ecological aspects.
