In Search of Bigfoot: 12 Intriguing Insights Into Why He Remains Hidden

A dark, atmospheric concept of a huge bigfoot monster.

Are you a fan of myths and legends? When you hear the name Bigfoot, what comes to mind? This mysterious creature has been a topic of debate for centuries. Some swear by unmistakable sightings, while others dismiss it all as a hoax. But if Bigfoot is real, why does he remain hidden? The search continues. Meanwhile, people share their theories.

1. Government Involvement

Could state security and covert affairs be the answer? It’s an intriguing notion since even the FBI holds a file for the infamous Sasquatch (as he is otherwise known). Much like the mystery that surrounds Area 51, we only know what we’re told. The rest remains behind closed doors.

2. Indigenous Tribes vs Modern Society

There is a claim that indigenous tribes once co-existed with “the wild men of the forest.” Since modern society is untrained in this arrangement, the master of camouflage tends to stay away.

One person believes Bigfoot is even aware of today’s technology, and can sense electronics such as cameras from a distance. As well as sensitivity to tech and highly susceptible hearing, the claim continues that Bigfoot can even sense our moods.

3. Interdimensional Traveler

Is Bigfoot a master of inter-dimensional travel? Several people online suggest the creature can teleport or slip in and out of our reality. If this is the case, it’s no wonder we have yet to catch him – he might just be playing hide-and-seek with us across multiple dimensions.

4. Hidden With Advanced Alien Technology

Another theory put forth by one viewers suggests that Bigfoot may not be of this world at all. The reader suggests Bigfoot could be a survivor from a dying alien planet, brought to Earth by extraterrestrial beings to ensure their species’ survival.

Allegedly, they reside in a secret location hidden with advanced alien technology, and only the occasional sighting of Bigfoot occurs when one of them strays from their hidden refuge.

5. Good at Evading Humans

One person suggested Bigfoot may be an intelligent creature that evolved to avoid human beings actively. Unlike other animals, Bigfoot has learned to move into the most remote areas to avoid us and knows how to “vanish” despite its large size.

This ability to evade humans may explain why it has been challenging to capture conclusive evidence of its existence.

6. As Intelligent as Humans Are

Another online commenter shared an exciting piece of history from over 200 years ago in China, where people reported sightings of a large black and white furry beast in the bamboo forest for over 70 years. That beast later became known as the Panda bear.

The commenter believes that if the assumptions about Sasquatch’s intelligence and abilities are accurate, it is just as good as humans are at adapting and hiding in their environment. Therefore, it does not seek interaction with humans. After all, Panda’s stayed hidden for centuries.

7. Bears Are Mistaken as Bigfoot

Many agree that some of the reported Bigfoot sightings are bears standing up at night. However, they appear taller and more threatening in a bipedal stance, which can easily be mistaken for the elusive creature.

8. Utilize an Underground Network

Some have raised the possibility of Bigfoot utilizing an underground network of caves to travel long distances or avoid detection. As North America has a vast network of unexplored caves, Bigfoot could use them for traveling.

Moreover, cryptid fans thought if they are as intelligent as they are believed to be, they might have an oral history of the location and geography of the caverns and how to navigate them.

9. Supernatural Entity

Another person expressed their belief that Bigfoot may be a supernatural entity and that the ape-like form commonly reported may be a manifestation created by the human brain to make sense of what is being witnessed.

10. Live Behind the Veil

The idea that Bigfoot lives “behind the veil” is intriguing. One person stated that some hikers have reported being chased by an unseen entity that they could only hear. Others agreed they’ve either experienced or heard from people sharing similar experiences in the woods.

11. Endangered or Afraid to Be Seen

Someone believes Bigfoot may be endangered or afraid to be seen due to the harm it has seen inflicted on other native animals. The person thinks Bigfoot is an intelligent and evolved being with superior physical traits and instincts that allows them to survive in the wilderness.

They also suggest that those who have seen Bigfoot and treated them with kindness have received the same in return, indicating that the creatures can reciprocate kindness and are highly intelligent.

12. Bigfoot Maybe Hiding in Dense Forests

Finally, many believe and point out that there are vast areas of wilderness that remain largely unexplored by humans.

Several people online stated that with dense forests people rarely venture into, it’s possible that something like Bigfoot could be living undetected in these areas. After all, if you want to avoid being found, it makes sense to hide in a place where people aren’t looking.

Do You Believe in Bigfoot?

The mystery of Bigfoot continues to captivate and intrigue people around the world. Whether it’s inter-dimensional, hiding in dense forests, or utilizing an underground network of caves, the elusive creature (or hairy man) remains a fascinating enigma that may never be fully understood.

    In Aug on 1978 at the end of a logging road North of a town named Golden in BC (near the divide) that was overlooking a canyon far above a tributary of the (Columbia River?) my two companions went off to climb a cliff off the side of a mountain that appeared to be composed of shale. I stayed with the VW Bug and rested a sprained ankle scanning the area with a set of binoculars. I’m thinking about 1/2 mile north of the point where this road washed out, on a cliff there was a boulder with a bear standing behind it on its rear legs looking over the top. I stared at this thing for I guess 1/2 hour and it didn’t move. I kept on saying to myself over and over again “that’s not a bear, that’s not a bear.” It was staring back at me in a curious kind of manner, not moving an inch. I looked away and panned back with my binoculars and it was completely gone. The entire experience was fascinating, not scary and I’m glad to have experienced it. My companions returned, I told them of my experience, and they cared little, or perhaps didn’t believe me at all. Coincidentally, that night one of them had a dream of a Sasquatch.

    I’m interested in how intelligent *theoretically* the creature might be *if it did exist*, either as an advanced primate (parallel to earlier humans/apes) given the relatively massive size of its skull vs if it was more on level of a gorilla/bonobo/chimp/bear?

    If it is primarily a cave dweller and lacks mystic al or dimension shifting powers, and it is relatively intelligent it could not only leverage extensive undergound cave systems and also recover any of their remains and relocate them underground.

    Surely not everyone thinks we have uncovered EVERY single cave system on earth, just like only a percentage of the deep oceans have been mapped/searched.

    I like to think along lines of not what is possible, but what is probable. For example, I recall a news story about a man who lived as a hermit in woods not too far from where he grew up and had not been seen *FOR 30 YEARS*. They only found his campsite bc they got lucky.

    A creature who had evolved to avoid detection and live in extremely remote and underground areas could easily do so for extended.

    You can find reports of caves that haven’t been seen habitation for THOUSANDS of years, then tools or primate footprints are found.

    Again, am thinking of what is probable… The rare authentic sightings (*if they exist) could be the rare instances the reclusive beings/creatues are moving between cave systems.

      Thanks for sharing, Ernie. It is an interesting topic. There is so much out there to think about.

      Hey Ray – Where were you? Thank you for sharing. We were on the Upper Buffalo National River (Arkansas) when I think I had my first encounter. I didn’t “see it” but I believe that I “heard it/them” and “felt it.”

    Yes Bigfoot or if you wish to call it Sasquatch is real. There can be no explanation other than that for what I saw one night. It happened back in 1984 or 85 while I was stationed at Naval Air Station Meridian Mississippi. I worked the evening shift at the supply departments air wing support. My hours of work were from 4:30 pm to 1:00am. One night as I was driving from the area of the airport back up to the main part of the base (I need to say the road was a 2 lane road about 2 miles long from the airport to the main part of the base) about halfway to the base the road curves to the right enough that you can not see around the corner because of the trees on both sides of the road. I saw lights from another oncoming car so I put my lights on dim until I passed that car and completed going around the curve. Once I finished going around the curve I turned on my bright lights. And there about 40 yards in front of me crossing the road was what could have only had been Bigfoot. He stood about 8 foot tall, hairy yes but not a shaggy harry body like everyone pictures him. It only took about 3 strides of his long legs to cross the road and disappear into the wooded marsh like area to the left of the road. There had been rumors of other sightings in the area but no one had any proof. It’s a shame I didn’t have a dash cam.

      Thanks for sharing your story with us, William. Incredible.

    Yes Bigfoot is real. My first sighting was in Quebec early 80s. A dark one which quickly went behind a cluster of saplings.
    In 2012 i saw a massive blond one two times. Heard wood knocks days prior to the sightings. Have heard them many times calling.

      Hi JD – Thank you for sharing your story. I appreciated reading it and know our audience does too. I believe they are real as well. I have never seen one, but I have seen weird “tree structures,” and I have also heard unmistakable wood knocks while hiking and camping in the Ozarks (Arkansas).

  6. Christopher Morales on June 20, 2023 at 2:46 am

    Of course it is real.
