Dates: March 5-8, 2009 (Thurs. - Sun.)
This will be the third BFRO expedition held in Georgia. The first two
targeted areas in the North Georgia mountains. The first expedition had
one good night of activity, but the sasquatches did not come very close
(approx. 100 yards). Distant sounds were heard on the second GA expedition
in the northern mountains, but nothing else happened.

No expedition report was put together
after the second BFRO expedition in Georgia, because not enough activity
happened on that trip to justify a report.
The North Georgia mountains have very
rugged terrain and a limited number of open roads. This makes it difficult
for us to quickly spread out in a target area at night, and makes it easy
very easy for the sasquatches to avoid the limited areas that humans can
get to easily.
The target area for the 2009 expedition will be in central Georgia. There
are no public reports in the BFRO sightings database for this area.
However, we have good second-hand information that many local people in
this area (most of whom do not have Internet access) have seen or heard
these animals. Moreover, there are various ecological ingredients that
would make the area very attractive to sasquatches, and we'll be able
to move freely around in the area.
This expedition is currently being organized
by Georgia researcher Matt Pruitt. At this time he is accepting requests
for participation by non-members. You can contact him to inquire via email
