Many of the Bigfoot sightings reported happen during the day but according to Cliff Barackman one of the stars of Finding Bigfoot and a noted Bigfoot researcher it may be better to search for the elusive cryptid at night.
Barackman notes that data shows that Bigfoot are likely to be much more active at night and you have a better chance of getting closely approached at night. The John Green database shows that approximately 60% of sightings of Bigfoot happen during the day and Cliff uses these numbers to back up his theory on his blog.
Cliff uses a simplistic 50/50 breakdown in day/night sightings which is pretty close to the actual numbers to explain his point. There are about 10% as many people out at night compared to during the day with 10% as much visibility said Barackman. This simple breakdown in numbers seems to clearly indicate that Bigfoots are most likely 100 times more active at night. Even if the numbers are exactly specific and accurate, they still paint a pretty clear picture as to his theory. Even if sightings tend to be better during the day, especially for those looking to get Bigfoot videos and photos, it seems easier to have a sighting at night according to Cliff.
If his theory is accurate and influences more research during the night time hours it may lead to a shift in the numbers of upcoming Bigfoot sightings 2016. Although that may also lead to fewer pieces of Bigfoot evidence in the form of photos and videos which are clearly better obtained from the day time encounters.
