Does Bigfoot exist? If so, do they reside in Oregon? And if they do, what are the chances of an encounter with one (or many) while enjoying Oregon's other natural wonders?
That’s an interesting and I think sometimes heavily-debated question. It’s also a subject beyond my scope of expertise. That said, I would refer you to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization. They document and list purported sightings and encounters on a state-by-state basis, as well as provide contact info for further inquiry. Additionally, if you do a search for Jeff Meldrum, you will probably find some interesting information. Dr. Meldrum is a Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology at Idaho State University who has conducted an extensive amount of research into the subject.
