I have noticed a couple searches on the web regarding "Convict Lake Bigfoot Sightings."
This makes me think that maybe someone has had a sighting there, and is researching what they have seen, or they've heard about someone having a sighting there.
I have been to Convict several times. The picture above is one that I took while fishing on a boat at Convict with my kids back in 2007. I've heard several reports from that area, but not at Convict itself. Convict Lake has a rather popular resort with cabins, a campground, restaurant and store, about 3 miles off highway 395. Just east of Yosemite National Park. I'd think that squatches would avoid that area in the day. At night when the guests are sleeping, I think they may venture into the area to raid numerous trash receptacles. Also there was a small heard of deer, I'd estimate at about 20, just out my cabin door one night. I also saw a lone buck on the shoreline in the daytime while we were trolling for trout from the boat, that same day I took the aforesaid picture. Long story short: It is prime sasquatch habitat.
If you'd like to discuss a sighting, I'd be glad to listen. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
