I absolutely love all things supernatural - so I decided to do some research regarding Bigfoot when I had a free moment the other day.

We have been hearing a lot about aliens but really not much about the mythical creature. There is a website dedicated to Bigfoot called The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization and the site keeps track of the creatures supposed whereabouts. I started diving into some statistics and was blown away by a certain fact I came across.

There is one Wisconsin county that has had nine Bigfoot sightings over time. Yes - nine! That county is Marinette County, located in the Northeastern part of the state.

While nine may not seem like a lot in the grand scheme of things, it actually is when compared to other counties in the state. Most other counties have only had one or two sightings, if any at all.

There are a few exceptions to this, though. Oneida County has had a total of seven sightings while Price County has had a total of eight. Spooky!

What makes Marinette County a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings? I couldn't say for sure but it is an area that is heavily forested in parts.That would provide lots of cover for mysterious creatures.

According to the BFRO, the first sighting of Bigfoot in the county was back in August of 1979. The last sighting was in summer of 2018. Hmmmm....

As for Minnesota, the county with the most Bigfoot sightings is St. Louis County! We will have to see where he pops up next.
