The Ohio Grassman Bigfoot is one of a few types spotted in Ohio. It’s thought to be more social in nature, having been spotted in pairs or groups. Mothers and babies have been seen together. This Bigfoot-type tends to wander in close proximity to humans and has been seen in corn and wheat fields.
According the Ohio Bigfoot Research Organization (BFRO), Ohio has over 300 Bigfoot sightings. This ranks it as one of the top ten states in which one might catch a glimpse the legendary creatures. In fact, the organization hosts expeditions in which members and non members can accompany experts out into the field. Looks like this event will happen in September for Ohio, but several other states are also participating. If you love nature and being in the forest, these expeditions would be a fun and safe way to explore. Especially at night. You can check out the details here.
Most Ohio Bigfoot sightings have occurred in the east and northeast where the state is more hilly and wooded. Others have spotted the creature in bogs, woods, and on farms. A few of you mentioned your experiences near Cedar Bog after we posted about legend tripping over that way in Champaign County. I can’t even imagine the fear of encountering an over-sized creature at night, regardless of whether or not it’s Bigfoot. Well, actually, I can imagine. I’m finishing up final edits on a fictionalized book featuring Bigfoot. Many of the details others share about their personal encounters have helped shaped the thoughts swirling in my mind.
Eyewitness testimonies from Ohio also helped provide details for the Ohio Grassman profiled in our non fiction book: The Legend of Bigfoot: Leaving His Mark On the World. Using a conglomeration of reported details, Mel emphasizes those that are most consistent. Above is her rendition of the Ohio Grassman, an illustration that did not make it into the book. But the Ohio Grassman is in there. You can learn more about this Bigfoot-type and nearly forty others spotted around the world. The book also shows how this legendary creature grew into a cultural icon.

The Legend of Bigfoot: Leaving His Mark On the World
Bigfoot has captured America’s attention, seeping into the cultural veins of our society. Over the years, the creature has morphed into a phenomenon because he is many things at once: a vulnerable animal, a supernatural wonder, a paranormal entity, a monster, a toy, a superhero, an intriguing creation.
He is a cultural icon.
But what is he really?
Is Bigfoot an animal, created in the same way as other animals, driven by an instinctual need for survival? A warm-blooded creation who potentially migrated across the Bering Strait and then across North America? Or, is Bigfoot a supernatural force, created with abilities far superior to humans? Perhaps, he exists in an unusual manner as a paranormal entity, sent from another place by a means humans haven’t fully come to understand.
Maybe the beast is a figment in our mind, a monster born out of a fear living deep within our psyche―a product of our imaginations we hold onto for various reasons.
As we explore each possibility with an open mind and a sense of wonder, the goal is not to prove or disprove Bigfoot’s existence, or to discredit one belief for another, but to enjoy the experience as we examine evidence and apply critical thinking that allows every reader to ask questions and draw conclusions. Everything that is not a fact is an interpretation grounded in biased opinion. And that’s okay, too, as long as we understand our biases and the purpose they serve.The Legend of Bigfoot: Leaving his mark on the world by t. s. mart and mel cabre. published by red lightning books. 2020.
