North America's Most Prolific Cryptid

There's no doubt that North America's most prolific cryptid is Bigfoot, or some like to call them sasquatch.  There are some people who take their fascination up a notch and even go on Big Foot hunts, where they actively seek to find proof of Bigfoot. If you're someone who enjoys learning more about Bigfoot and always keep an eye out for him in the woods, then there is a conference coming up in Gatlinburg this summer that you won't want to miss.
