Georgia Bigfoot

The Georgia Bigfoot website is the place to go for information about Bigfoot tracking in this forested southern state. Does Georgia seem like an unlikely place for a Bigfoot sighting?

Consider this:
Back in the 1990s a man living in a mobile home in Georgia was disturbed by something (or someone) walking around his home and pounding on the walls. Worse, the thing killed some of his dogs and stole lots of dogfood. His frequent calls to the Sheriff’s department were considered a nuisance. The result of this disturbance is the Elkins Creek footprint, cast by Deputy James Akin of the local Sheriff’s department. This footprint cast was studied by Dr. Grover Krantz and Jimmy Chilcutt and declared to be real. This is a sighting story worth reading and the site includes footprint cast photographs. On a separate page you can see Jimmy Chilcutt’s dermal ridge analysis of the Elkins Creek print.

Articles on this site include the practical matters of Basic Track Casting and Processing and Investigating Potential Sasquatch Evidence. The Photo Gallery has images from trail cams, tracks and casts, and wilderness scenes showing what the terrain in Georgia is like.

Georgia BigfootI looked over the entire site before moving on to the blog, which has quite a few valuable articles though it is no longer being maintained since the site was passed on to new owners at the end of 2007. What’s there is worth a read! It starts with Game Camera Survey Phase One, published March 2, 2006 by Samuel Rich. If you’re planning to use trail cams, this is a good primer. Or if you’d like to read about a wood-knocking, howling adventure, check out Mike2K1’s story, Serendepity…How we got from Point A to B. Part I and Part II. I also appreciated Red circles, shadows and the Blob agenda. I will come back to this blog to read the rest of the postings.

All this leaves one question unanswered… Do Bigfoot enjoy eating Georgia peaches?

Probably so…

  1. I’m interested in looking for a habitation location and would like to camp and hike there. I am in Gilmer County, GA (Ellijay). I would like to meet or talk to anyone locally about local encounters.

  2. This is not about seeing a Bigfoot, but a creature we can’t explain or identify. My husband and I were traveling east on Aska Road around 6 pm one day and this 8-10′ long, black figure…resembling a small horse, darted across the highway so fast that it was hard to get a clear picture of what the creature was. We did notice it had a big, husky head and the body was thick and muscular. It was not a horse, not a bear, Panther, or wolf. Has anyone reported seeing this type creature before? It came from a body of water on the north side of Aska. …most likely an inlet off Blueridge Lake. Not sure though. After telling friends about this creature, they started telling stories of hell hounds that were spotted in Virginia all the way down to Georgia. Let me know if anyone has seen any creature that fits this description. Thanks.

  3. My family and I vacationed in a small cabin in Cherrylog for a few days after Christmas. Our cabin was to itself and backed up to National Forest and the Benton McKay Trail in front of our cabin. Around 3:30 AM, 29 degrees and windy, I heard sounds of things being tossed or dropped on the lower level of our cabin, which was an open patio with hot tub and fire pit. A hard blow to our cabin really got my attention. The hit was so hard, it shook the cabin. I kept thinking this had to be a bear, not man because of the freezing temps, and too, what man would want to draw attention to himself knowing all well we may have a gun and shoot him? Right? So, I began getting shakey. I was sleeping with my handicapped daughter in the bedroom that faced the porch and I heard the screen door to the porch being opened. Something or someone so heavy was popping boards as they walked across the porch. The moon was bright that night and casted a glow on the wall inside the cabin through the glass door. I nervously watched to see if someone would pass infront the glass door. A few seconds after the screen door opened, a figure stood at the glass door. It was human like, not a bear. I got out of my bed, ran to my husbands bedroom and told him about the manlike figure at the door. He immediately got up, looked around the hallway wall to see what he could see. The human like figure disappeared. Our chihuahua, Bella, was at the door sniffling under the door. She smelled something and wanted us to check it out. My husband took her outside, thinking she needed to potty and said whatever or whoever it was had disappeared, most likely into the forest. Was it a Bigfoot? We really don’t know for sure. But, what man with no jacket be out in 29 degree weather or draw attention by making all the noise downstairs or hitting the cabin with force?

    1. Cindy, I’m with you, though I haven’t yet seen one yet, but have encounters, a tree falling down, rocks clacking together, but I’m so fascinated by the reports, & I am a believer. I feel it won’t be long, it will find me before I find it. My Aunt used to rent out cabins up in Cherry Log.

  4. I have believed in Sasquatch/Bigfoot since I was a child I use to live in Florida I now live in Georgia in the Lawrenceville/Suwanee area Gwinnett county if there area any people that are going out to search I would like to tag along just to be able to really see one myself I will give my contact info

  5. Yes, they very much exist in Georgia…in large family groups. They are beyond phenomenal when it comes to concealing their presence.

    1. I see this comment is old, and I don’t know if this thread is still valid, but there is one or two or a small family that come through. in October every year. We have dense woods behind us, and a creek up the road. I have heard both knocks and howls. My dogs go crazy when they are around. They are very much active in Georgia.

      1. My sighting happened on October 7th, 2015, in South Georgia in Brookes County,i took a back way to where i was living then, about 200 yards in front of me, this thing took 3 steps across the 2 lane road i was driving on, was bright reddish/brown, went from my left to my right, was gone i already knew they were real, but to see this creature flesh and blood will alter your way of thinking.

  6. Just this week there was a Bigfoot sighting on my daughter’s friends property in Paulding Co Ga. It was passing through her friends pasture as he was on the phone with my daughter. It grunted at him and my daughter could hear it over the phone. As her friend got bout 40 ft from it it ran and cleated a 6ft bobwire fence apparently it’s a common occurance as the father had seen it too on multiple ocassions. My daughters friend actually had gotten his gun out of his truck when he first seen it not knowing what it was and he was telling her how bad it smelled.. She told him it was a bigfoot over the phone not really knowing this till it grunted.

  7. Just out side of Blairsville at TrackRock campground: my wife and I and two kids were tent camping at the very back of campground last April. This site backs up to the Applachian Mts. No one else was tent camping but RVs were toward the front. Around 9:30pm my wife and I are fire watching and the kids are sleeping. We hear dogs barking toward the front of the campground and then start hearing branches “snapping” about 30 yards up the mountain. The snapping sound speeds up as it comes down the mountain. Wife gets up to get the flash light and I get up and as I do I hear a “THUD” like a large tree hitting the ground. Scared – grab my gun and wife hands my the flash light- I see nothing. This is all happening within a 10 minute period. As soon as the THUD happens – the tree snapping sound comes up the valley toward our camp and is faster and louder – I FROZE. I let out a loud wooooop and the sound stopped! We grabbed the kids and drove into to town and stayed at the Holiday Inn – the girl checking us in told us that BFRO was there two weeks prior! I can’t say that it was or wasn’t – but bears are active in the early morning. This was at 9:30pm…that THUD was the sound of a large tree falling and hitting the ground. We returned the next morning and there were no trees fallen but only tree limbs snapped over at the 7 1/2 foot on the other side of the small river that runs through the campground!

  8. The proof of the existence of Homo sapiens cognatus, popularly known as “Bigfoot or Sasquatch” has been proven by the research efforts of the Sasquatch Genome Project.
    Read the Article, Novel North American Hominins, By DeNovo.
    The complete story of the processes and findings of Dr. Melba Ketchum and her 10 colleagues is well documented, and makes for very interesting reading. Also visit the site of the Sasquatch Genome Project for more interesting info

  9. So glad to read that Greg in Wayne County Georgia. I also am a believer and I live in Wayne county. There was a report posted on the BFRO website. Your not alone. I often have the feelings of being watched while in the woods.

  10. My uncle used to show me pictures of a large apelike creature that he and some others killed in Rabun County Ga. back in 1943. They buried it somewhere called the plum orchard in the same county after showing it around town and taking the pictures of it. You can still go there and see its grave, drive all the way to the end. The locals will assist you if you ask them to.
    Sadly the pictures were destroyed in a house fire in the early 70’s, along with my uncle. But I remember the detail of the creature even today.
    It had long matted hair all over and a large eye(which they shot out) right in the middle of its long pointed head. The most astonishing features of the beast was the size of his nuts. Looked like 2 volleyballs in a sack, had caluses on them that looked like oaktree bark from dragging them on the ground all the time.
    We always called it the Old Nutdragger, but Im sure that it was a Sasquatch, same creature.
    Ole nutdragging basterd, thats for sure.

  11. this is a response to Todd the cabin renter. I live in Blue Ridge which is very close to Cherry Log. I can attest that bears will definitely carry off garbage-filled cans!! They can climb up walls, deck posts etc. very easily. It was probably a bear that attacked your garbage cans.

  12. now once a month me and so friends from church go big foot hunting all over georgia and we search at night and this will help so much

  13. I was just inspired by a north Ga Bigfoot program. The evidence was compelling enough for me to question an incident that occurred during our stay at a cabin in Cherry Log. One of the nights we were in the cabin, we never heard anything and the dogs never alerted us to the fact that our trash can was moved straight up a 6 foot retaining wall and moved 10 to fifteen yards up a hill to the tree line. We found it the following morning when we woke up and the can was “gone”. Bigfoot crossed my mind, but I did not want to be scared so I dismissed it as a bear. Now I’m not so sure. Can a bear do that to a trash can? Would it be smart enough to move it away from the cabin to not disturb us?

    1. Tony, my contact link is in the right-side column on this site . . . info -at- bigfootsightings.org

      I just sent an email to Lori to let her know you’re interested in following up on her offer.

  14. I had my own sighting as well when I lived in the foot mountains of mount Rainer in Washington state when I was sixteen I’m thirty two now, if you would like to here what happened just ask for my email address and I will share my story, I will not post it sorry.

  15. In order for you to understand why national Forrest and wild life refuge is the reason for your sightings,one side of the game refuge, part of this is thread that I posted, is coming form a man with the call sign BH as in bear hunter who is a bear hunter trapper and also a taxidermist there was this one road in a canyon leading into and out of the refuge. Bigfoot were apparently using the game refuge, since they are safe from hunters there.

  16. Hello everyone, I just wanted to add something to the sightings that Lori and her husband had in Carroll county, Michael in Lexington county, and Greg in Wayne county if y’all look on your maps you will see that y’all are with in five to ten miles of a river and also with in ten to twenty mile of a national Forrest of a nature reserve. Why is this a important factor in why you are seeing them go to this link and read and you will find out for yourself why those area’s are a hot bed for activity.http://robertlindsay.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/new-erickson-project-news-bigfoot-dna-project-using-two-dead-bigfoot-bodies-for-samples/

  17. My brother and I saw what can only be described as a bigfoot,back in1989 in bibb county. We were going to hang a deer stand and using the railroad tracks to get in there,and this thing walked up on the tracks in front of us about 200 yards away. We watched it several seconds until it walked off the other side out in waste deep water,and we left and have never went back.

  18. Mrs. Bossert –

    Just wondering if the creature was still hanging out around your property? I have always been curious about them. I subsequently met someone who told me about an encounter they had as an early teen, and that really put a hook in me about them.

  19. My wife and i spotted a bigfoot in lexington gerogia we were traveling down the road towards Rayle Georgia when the Bigfoot crossed the road infront of us it was plain as day…this creature can really move…It surprised the both of us..

  20. greg, i lived in wayne co. in the mid. 70’s. i plan on taking a trip down there in a mo. or 2. i am very intersted in talking to you about your siteing. how can i get in touch with you?

  21. If anyone would like to see a Bigfoot creature, then my property offers an extremely good chance of seeing one. I live in rural Carroll county Gerorgia and there has been one hanging around my property for a couple of months now. My husband has seen it, we’ve heard it many times, and have many footpprints of it on film. This thing has been eating my cats and dog’s food for a while now and doesn’t want to leave the area.

    I’m NOT kidding about this-if you’d like to comment-please feel free-
    Thanks,
    Lori

    1. yea they are hard to see though we had one habituated here in tenn, loved the dog food, the scream was spine tingle chills, we were deep in the woods, it would shake the camper on blocks, fight the dog, I made it mad a few times it would mimic cow, dog, horse very strange, when I was a kid in Georgia my friend would speak of what they called wild women. they had living in the woods along the Ocmulgee river. I believe you!

    2. Eating your cats? Question have you found any ,( please forgive) any heads left behind as if they were just snapped or twisted off?
      That’s is how I found at least the remains of one of our cats back in the early sixties. Also, as to the dogs, were any of them clawed or sort of bitten on the back and shoulders? That and did they just whimper and cower away from the woods when those sounds came from the woods? We lost four dogs at one time and the only one left never entered the woods again.

  22. Hi Greg… too bad this site went offline, but they did have some Georgia sightings to report. Now when I google “Georgia Bigfoot” mostly I get just news reports of the hoax there. Really, such a sad thing that it gets more attention than the real Bigfoot sightings in your state.

    Don’t give up… surely there are Bigfoot researchers – legitimate ones – you could contact. I know there are some in Florida.

  23. I saw a bigfoot in wayne county georgia 3 or 4 thanksgivings ago.I had beleived in them before but never had an idea here in georgia.I told what i saw and i have been ridiculed since.i would like to have some folks go with to catch or film the hunt,but all the folks that ridiculed me wont go with me.

  24. Sorry to say – I don’t live in Georgia, and just realized that site is now offline. I hope someone from Georgia Bigfoot will drop by and comment! What happened to the site?

    Maybe it will come back… I hope so!

  25. I am fascinated at the posibility of a bigfoot here in Georgia. Do you ever organize weekend hunts for him/her? I am a professional photogragher, Eagle Scout, and a pretty good shot if necessary.I live in Fayette County, home of giant hogs. Haven’t seen any yet on the Flint River, but I believe they exist.
