2009 Wyoming Expedition

Dates: July 9-12, 2009 (Thurs. - Sun.)

This will be the second BFRO expedition in Wyoming.

The 2008 Wyoming Expedition was a great success considering the long-shot odds. There was a very close encounter (less than 25 feet) with a group of three participants late at night on the second night of the expedition. The next day the group fanned out in the same area and found the line of tracks from a large sasquatch. A few participants from Utah followed the tracks and came across what they described as an "elk highway" -- a well worn game trail repeatedly used by a large herd of elk.

It was quite exciting to find more corroboration of a pattern that had been noticed elsewhere in the western states -- sasquatches apparently shadow elk herds in regions with elk. The BFRO was the first organization to notice the evidence supporting this pattern. At the outset of the formation of the organization a connection was noted between sasquatch sightings and predation on deer in Ohio. Beginning in the year 2000 the BFRO thought there might be similar correlation with elk herds in the west. After several expeditions in the western states this correlation became increasingly obvious. An expedition in central Oregon noted an even more intriguing pattern. If a zone with a dense mule deer population is adjacent to a zone with a dense elk population, sasquatches are more likely to be found in the elk zone, and not in the deer zone at all. Sasquatches seem to prefer elk over deer.

This zone in Wyoming was identified on maps by Wyoming BFRO investigator Brooke Raser. It had no reports of sasquatches in the immediate area, but it did have the right terrain and ecological ingredients that sasquatches find attractive elsewhere. Among other things, the area was known to be loaded with mountain dwelling ungulates (hoofed animals) of various types in the summer, especially elk.

This part of Wyoming may support a wider variety of mountain dwelling ungulates than any other place in North America. The photos below show examples of many of these different ungulate species.

The 2009 Wyoming expedition will be physically challenging, requiring hours of hiking at high elevation, at least for those who want to penetrate deep into the sasquatch zone. It is not recommended for people who are not comfortable hiking long distances in thin air.

The expedition is currently being organized by Brooke Raser. At this time he is accepting requests for participation by non-members. You can contact him to inquire via email ( after you have read the Frequently Asked Questions about the expeditions.
