Supposedly they live in the forest, so as far as fossils go it takes a while to make fossils, plus not only tons of dirt on top of them but also tons of forest on top of them. When was the last time you heard of an excavation in a forest? If there was, it wasn't very deep was it? and our government is known from keeping truth from us so there's another possibility.

Change "Krueger National Park" to "Illinois" and that hypothesis seems rather silly.
The US is a populated country, full of scientists. It has no scientific record of any native primates, except human beings. No scat, no fossils, no hair, no anything. In KNP there is lion poop, fossilised lions, hair, carcasses, etc. lying around. Seeing is not the only way to know something is there. Indeed, on a scientific level, seeing is not even evidence, but enough to get people looking for actual evidence.
I'll believe Bigfoot lives in the US when we get actual DNA evidence. And when we ask them how they managed to hide their fossils.

It seems some folks on this thread are somewhat ignorant as to how detecting animals works. Animals simply don't just appear in a cloud of God. They come from somewhere. They leave traces. If Bigfoot first evolved in the US, there would be masses of other primates present throughout the US, either living, or in fossil records ...
Oldest Primate Fossil in North America Discovered
Christopher Beard, a paleontologist at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, recently discovered fossils of the 55-million-year-old creature on the Gulf Coastal Plain of Mississippi.
The discovery suggests that Teilhardina primates migrated to North America across the Bering land bridge from Asia, Beard said. Then the creatures proceeded to Europe across an Atlantic land bridge that emerged thousands of years later.
Previous research had suggested the primates reached the Americas via a westward route instead, from Asia through Europe. But that path was submerged at the time the primates show up in ancient Mississippi, Beard said.
The Paleocene: 65 - 40 mya
The oldest known primate fossils date from this period. They are small-bodied, likely both nocturnal and diurnal, and have been found in North America, Europe, North Africa, and Asia. Examples of fossils of early candidate primates include:
* Pleseadapiformes (members of Archonta)
* Decoredon elongatus (or anhuiensis)
* Altiatlasius koulchii

i disagree - they DID go looking - not for bigfoot specifivcally - but the hunters and naturalist did activly seek out - kill or capture thousands of species unknown to europeans
all were duley given a latin name - and classified according to european scientidic conventions

Bigfoot did not always escape the white settlers.
The area I lived in, in Southern California, was part of a giant Spanish land grant.
The Spanish land owners pushed off all the Indians and made the place a big cattle range.
Once the Spanish were pushed out, the white settlers found a high concentration of BigFoot who had taken over the area where the human inhabitants had been displaced.
There was an escalating war between the humans and BigFoot, culminating in a massacre of BigFoot hiding in a cave.
