Finding Bigfoot is filming in Illinois this November (2012). More specifically Madison County in the River Bend area.
“Producers and organizers will hold an invitation-only [Bigfoot] town hall meeting during the last week of this month.”
— The Telegraph, November 13th 2012
The River Bend is a small region in western central Illinois and Southern Illinois that includes three counties: Madison, Calhoun, and Jersey. Madison County, with 15 encounters according to BFRO.net, tops the list as the county with the most sightings. Calhoun and Jersey? Only 3 between the both of them.
It is reasonable that Madison is a hot spot for Bigfoot. If you look at a map the River Bend is where the Illinois and Missouri river feed into the Mississippi River making for the greenest part of Illinois.
The Telegraph. a local Illinois paper, has published a staff report requesting Bigfoot experiences on behalf of the cast of the TV show, Finding Bigfoot:
