Washington is the No. 1 state for bigfoot sightings. The most popular places to catch a glimpse include the Blue Mountains, Okanogan County -- or better yet, Ape Canyon, the locale of one of the most aggressive bigfoot encounters ever recorded

The Travel Channel reported: "In 1924, a group of miners reported being attacked by multiple sasquatches, which allegedly threw rocks at their cabin and tried to break in."

In the Benton-Franklin area, there have been two sightings of the big furry giant.

The most sightings have come out of Pierce County -- 80.

All of this information came from the folks at the Bigfoot Field Researchers' Association.
