These giant footprints tells us Ohio is definitely a squatchy place right now. We have three different tracks-- Two found by three BFRO researchers and another by a fisherman name Matthew Jenkins.
The photo above is a 14 1/2 inch print found during a BFRO expedition in April. The location seems to be a real hotspot and two juvenile prints were also found nearby. Dr. Russ Jones was in charge of the expedition and he took the following close up shot of the toes. Apparently, Dr. John Bindernagel showed up at Salt Fork the following weekend and he was "very impressed" with the prints. Dr. Jones believes the prints show some evidence of dynamic toe movement.
"We get a lot of reports so we have the advantage of being able to go to very fresh/active locations and it is still shocking to get to find evidence.These animals are so crafty and illusive that they just dont leave much behind to find. Add to that the fact their are so few animals in any one general area it really is a challenge to come up with something," Jones wrote in an email to Bigfoot Evidence.
"Mark Maisel, Darren Pevarnik, and myself were actually out at night, before the expedition, and had went to an area on the backside of the park where we had heard a wood knock and whoop previously when we had been up there for the filming of "Finding Bigfoot". There are places in the park where when they created the lake that roads were put underwater. We believe they travel this old submerged road bed in and out of the park some. It's only a couple of feet underwater."

The giant foot print below was discovered by one of Matt Moneymaker's follower on Twitter named Matthew Jenkins. According to Jenkins, they found the print during a fishing trip in Coshocton County, Ohio's Woodbury Wildlife Area last Saturday (July 14th, 2012).
