Though some think he isn’t real, the believers like me, hope one day to see the magnificent sight of a Bigfoot in the wilderness. And now, with loads of people are hitting the great outdoors these days which means the number for Bigfoot sightings has dramatically increased.

According to a new report by the analysts at, Washington is #1 for the most reported Bigfoot sightings per capita in the nation. North Carolina came in with 98 sightings right in the middle and our close neighbors South Carolina had 52 sasquatch encounters. You can see the states with the top sightings below and the lowest.

States with the most sightings:

1. Washington
2. Oregon
3. West Virginia
4. Idaho
5. Montana

States with the fewest sightings:

1. Nevada
2. Rhode Island
3. Massachusetts
4. Connecticut

If you’re hitting the woods to get it away from it all, be on the lookout for large and lonely creatures. Note, this study was done by using data reports from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, our analysis compared the number of Bigfoot sightings against US Census state population data to find the number of sightings per 100,000 people.
