The BFRO has identified many potential habitat zones after collecting
thousands of sighting reports for more than 10 years. The expeditions
target these habitat zones.
Commonly Asked Question: Has anyone ever seen a bigfoot on these expeditions??
The Answer: Yes.
There have been well over 1,000 attendees, collectively, so far.
More than half that number now consider themselves Class B witnesses (They
were close enough to hear them).
A least 35 of these people had a Class A sighting.
A "Class A sighting" is a clear sighting -- either in daylight, or under
artificial illumination, or in moonlight, or with visual aids such as
nightvision scopes or thermal scopes.
A Class A sighting is clear enough to rule out misinterpretation. The
only three explanations for a Class A : 1) a real bigfoot, 2) a man in
a convincing bigfoot costume, or 3) the witness is lying.
If the report is posted publicly on the web site, then we feel the witness
is credible and not lying about the sighting claim.
Class B visual sightings are those which occur in poor lighting
conditions, or at a distance, or very, very briefly. Class B status acknowledges
a potential for misinterpretation.
Class B audible incidents are those involving sounds such as vocalizations.
All sound-only incidents are Class B because there is a potential for
misinterpretation if the sound maker was not visually observed by the
The most sustained and dramatic encounters with bigfoots
are usually Class B sound incidents after dark, sometimes with a minor
These animals will sometimes approach people very closely at night in
the right type of terrain -- thick brush and trees. In these environments
they are better shrouded from view and protected from painful lights and
One of the purposes of these expeditions is to show people how these
animals operate, so more people can help us identify other habitat areas
in the US and Canada.
At this stage, many previous expedition attendees have managed to encounter
these animals in other areas, after learning our techniques for identifying
habitat zones and provoking an encounter there.

Too much human pressure in a habitat area can push out these animals,
or drive them to more remote reaches. That's why we do not publicly
identify our expedition areas. We want to keep the human pressure to
a minimum while learning as much as we can from a given location.
An expedition with the BFRO is an opportunity to learn and see and hear
many things that cannot easily be seen, or heard or learned with anywhere
Not unlike a long weekend spent with a professional fishing guide, a long
weekend with the BFRO will allow you to learn what would take years
to learn on your own, and would cost you a whole lot more than $300 in
