Bigfoot in Kentucky? Maybe, Maybe Not, But There’s a Blog About It [VIDEO]

Now, Kentucky does have its share of creatures of folklore. The Sheepsquatch anyone? What about the Pope Lick Monster? Yes, they belong to the Bluegrass State.
But Bigfoot? Well, Bigfoot’s for everyone.
So, move over Sheepsquatch and Pope Lick Monster, because if Bigfoot’s for everyone, then that means he’s bound to have been spotted in Kentucky.
Or at least it means there is possible…POSSIBLE…proof that he may have wandered the hills of Kentucky.
There’s enough proof for a couple of guys named Tom and Rodney who have an entire YouTube Channel devoted to the Big Guy’s possible treks through Henry, Carroll, and Trimble Counties.
And they have a blog, too, called Bigfoot: The Beast of Kentucky.
Again, Bigfoot belongs to the whole country and that blog title DOES make it sound like he’s unique to Kentucky. And we know he isn’t.
But, anyway, there it is. Proof not necessarily (in my opinion, anyway) that Bigfoot has actually been walking through the Bluegrass, but proof that belief in him will never, ever go away.
And that’s great.
He’s classic American folklore. Maybe he tops the list…or at the very least gives Paul Bunyan a run for his money.
Here’s one of the videos from Squatching with Tom and Rodney (love that title):


The Search For Bigfoot In KY Takes Logical Turn - LEX18

Mystery Monday: The Search For Bigfoot

When it comes to the legend of Sasquatch, an EKU English teacher doesn't know what to believe.
However, Mason Smith does think it's fascinating to consider the question "What if?"
"We live in a complex universe that has things that haven't been discovered," says Smith.
Smith's interest peaked a couple of years ago when the cast of Animal Planet's "Finding Bigfoot" came to Renfro Valley and asked participants if they had ever seen or heard Bigfoot.
"Out of 50 people, 25 of those had eyewitness testimony that they'd seen something bi-pedal, hairy out in the woods. Now I think that's interesting," says Smith.
Smith did not raise his hand in that meeting. He's got no Bigfoot stories to speak of. But he is fascinated with the idea of the creature.
Smith has written a novel about it. He has a play he hopes to get picked up and wrote a children's story about a little girl who sets out on a hunt for Sasquatch and has some strange experiences in the woods.
Dozens of sightings in the Bluegrass and hundreds across the country have at least one scholar intrigued.
"If the guys on Finding Bigfoot never find Bigfoot, I'm OK with that. I like watching them. They're a lot of fun. But they're in the woods, seeing some creepy things. I don't know what those things are and maybe somewhere in all of that mix, a discovery would be made. That would be the coolest thing," says Smith.

A Texan is On A Mission To Kill Bigfoot - KTRE

This was just posted on my time line The Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization plans on Killing of a so called "nuisance Bigfoot" Read and post your comments and concerns on this horrible act. share this with others
Bigfoot Hunting & Research
On the WHAS AM Radio Station:...
 Jim Lansdale and Bobby Hamilton of the the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization (GCBRO) discussed their work researching and hunting Bigfoot. They opined that the creature is a real flesh and blood animal, which may have the intelligence of a human child. Lansdale said he's found structures in the woods-- 6 or 7 ft. tall teepees built from tree branches and limbs that he suspects were made by Bigfoot. Hamilton described his first sighting of Bigfoot which occurred in an East Texas farmhouse in 1969 when he heard a scratching on a window screen. "And when I looked up, this devilish, apish-looking face was looking at me, and was motioning at me with his hand, and showing his teeth." He later learned that his brothers had similar encounters.

The GCBRO hopes to kill what they call a "nuisance Bigfoot"-- a creature known for eating and attacking farm animals and pets, as a way to show the world that Bigfoot does indeed exist. Their efforts will be followed in the new TV series Killing Bigfoot (trailer). Such "nuisance" Bigfoot are an ongoing problem in wooded and swampy areas in Texas and Louisiana, they reported. While the ideal situation would be for them to find a Bigfoot that was already dead, Lansdale said it's not practical to try and tranquilize one of the creatures, because after it was shot, it could run miles away before the drug immobilized it. He estimated that the Bigfoot population in North America is around 30,000.

The new show Killing Bigfoot is set to air on the Destination America channel this Friday, October 24 at 9/8C. The show was originally supposed to air on October 17 but got pushed forward for reasons unbeknownst to us. 
In this news report they talk with one of the stars of Killing Bigfoot, Bobby Hamilton. Bobby has had several encounters throughout his life and now wants to bring proof to the public by harvesting an adult male Sasquatch. He does not want his team to kill a female or a juvenile Sasquatch.
