The region’s most infamous species of bigfoot, the West Virginia Yahoo has jet black hair, protruding teeth, and frightening squall that sounds like “YAH-hoooo”. The Yahoo can be found throughout the Appalachian region and has most often been reported on the southern and southwestern border of West Virginia; the eastern and southeastern borders of Kentucky have also frequently reported Yahoo calls. It is thought that these gigantic creatures once roamed the land between the east coast and the middle of North America until native tribes and European colonizers reduced their number and hunting grounds. The population of Yahoos continues to battle against the encroachment of human territory but has since been pushed back to the remote wildernesses

I'm a pretty quiet person from Southern Ohio that loves monsters, animals, stories, and history. I moved to Fairbanks, AK to study art and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2017, afterward moving to & working in El Paso, TX. Currently, I reside in Lucasville, OH.
I enjoy outdoor activities - like hiking, kayaking, and sightseeing - reading, drawing, throwing pottery, sculpting, playing video games, and playing dungeons and dragons with my friends. ~Kristen Puckett - Appalachian Illustrator, Folklorist, & Ceramicist
