|I am a private and independent researcher currently concentrating my search for sasquatch in the northern frontier of
Alaska. The primary focus of my research, field investigation and expeditions are in the interior of Alaska and the
border area of the Yukon Territory.
|"Is Sasquatch really in Alaska?"
|Well, the short answer is: Yes!
You see, most people associate sasquatch with remote sections of northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho
and even British Columbia. It's a well know fact that those areas have a high concentration of Sasquatch, but those
areas are not the only place to find them.
Sasquatch is in Alaska and people are talking about him. Through my research, I have discovered that Alaska has over
a century of recorded encounters. The oral history of Sasquatch among Alaska's native peoples, as with other native
groups, is even older.
I found documented sightings and encounters as well as oral history that stretched from the fern laden rain forests of
the southeast to the tundra and muskeg of the arctic. I can't think of any other animal in Alaska that has that broad of
a range other than perhaps a coyote. Even Alaska's three species of bears, the black bear, the grizzly bear and the
polar bear don't boast that big of a range.

AIRS MOUNTAIN TRACK (near Border, AK)
Mid-afternoon discovery by bear hunters on 16SEP2013
N 62 Deg. 36'.636" x W 141 Deg. 01'.776"
Slope: approximately 25 degrees.
One left track was found near a local hiking trail by four bear
hunters. The true track measured 13 inches long and 5 inches
wide and was 1.5 inches in depth. After removing forest debris
from the track, 5 separate toe impressions were visible with a
slight indentation just below the ball of the foot suggestive of a
mid-tarsal break. No other tracks or signs were discovered.
Incidentally, this is one of several reports made by experienced
local bear hunters who are very familiar with what bear tracks
should look like.
The surrounding area is heavily forested with alders, birch, black
spruce, arctic rose, mushrooms and low bush cranberries.
