St. Louis County, nestled in the north-east portion of Minnesota, stretching from the edge of Lake Superior to the Canadian border, has a whopping 20 sightings reported by the Bigfoot Research Organization. That’s 27 percent of the state’s sightings.
Compared to St. Louis County, the next largest collection of sightings in any Minnesota County can be found in Cass County. They’ve seen a total of four that have been recorded by the BRO since June of 2006 when workers found possible Sasquatch footprints near Bena.
So, what makes the Minnesota Bigfoot Forests such an attractive place for Sasquatch to hangout? Is it the forest, food or even water access? Let’s dig in, shall we?
Sasquatch is one of the most geographically diverse cryptids. There’s a version of one of these creatures on every continent on Earth, but the North American creature is said to be a forest dweller that loves dense wooded areas.
The woods in Minnesota, particularly those in the St. Louis County’s Superior National Forest, are perfect for these creatures. Considering we haven’t seen much of them by way of physical proof, we assume that they’re shy and a large forest is perfect for them to hide out in.
Not to mention, there is plenty of material to create tree structures that are said by some to be signs of Sasquatch life in certain wooded areas. Whether they’re boundary distinctions, a way to get food or a mating ritual—the tree-rich forests in Minnesota are the perfect environment.
While the habitat of the Minnesota Bigfoot Forests are great for Sasquatch, there is also food abound for these creatures. Truthfully, we don’t know what they eat but we suspect them to have an omnivorous diet of raw meat and fish like it’s Florida cousin the Skunk Ape.
The Superior National Forest is home to a number of creatures that could make up the perfect Sasquatch diet. There are the big guys—moose, wolves, lynx and black bear, though we’re not sure they eat all of those. You can also find birds including 155 nesting species.
The forests in Minnesota also contain 455,000 acres of surface water plus 1,300 cold water streams and 950 miles of warm water streams. The water is not only necessary to drink, but it also includes a collection of fish like walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass and a whole collection of trout.
