The map also indicates that you could find Bigfoot in one of two general areas: north/northwest of Los Santos and east of what appears to be an airport.

EDIT - Bigfoot Found: Apparently, Bigfoot has been discovered by at least one intrepid gamer. Check out this Youtube video if you want to see for yourself.
If you head directly east of Los Santos, you may encounter "Deer-man," according to the above map. In the mood for a close encounter of the third kind?
