CENTRAL OHIO BIGFOOT RESEARCH

By Blake Mathys

Welcome. The idea of a large undiscovered primate occurring in North America is difficult to accept. I do not know if these creatures exist; I consider investigation into the matter to be a valid scientific undertaking. I've never seen one of these creatures, and will not be convinced of their existence unless I do. As you look through this site, I ask that you evaluate the evidence objectively. If you are already convinced that such a creature does or does not exist, this site will not change your mind. I recently moved back to Ohio, and I am interested in investigating any current Bigfoot reports; please feel free to contact me at squatchunter@hotmail.com if you have any questions or sightings to report.
