A  Great Bigfoot Site Link
One of our Bigfoot researcher friends has a website that is well worth the time to check it out. Dennis is in southern Alabama, in
Conecuh  County. He has many stories of Bigfoot sightings you'll want to read.

Another panther Sighting In Zana
Over the past few weeks, I have received several Black Panther
Sighting reports. Several of those reports coming from the same area,
Zana, located between Daviston and New Site on Highway 22
A man I have known for sometime reported seeing a large black panther crossing the road in Zana only a few weeks ago. He and
some friends were traveling on Alabama Highway 22 near the guard rail area of Zana, a place I call the swamp. He said the
panther came running from the woods very low to the ground as a normal cat would run.
The sighting lasted only a few seconds but he got a very good look at the cat with the headlights of his truck. It was plain to see
its long tail stretched out behind it . This is possibly a trail for these panthers as this is the 3rd sighting reported to me near the
guard rails. He also added a hunter friend of his reported seeing one in a green field on their hunting club 3 years ago.
This is an 18 foot tall statue of Bigfoot!  It is located in Rohnert Park, California.  There is a 100
mile stretch of highway named, "The Bigfoot Scenic Biway".  It is named that because there
have been more reported sightings of Bigfoot along this highway than any other road in the
United Sates!  In the article i found concerning this , it stated....'The Bigfoot Scenic Biway lies
within and goes through government owned and protected lands where Bigfoot and other
endangered species can be seen or observed. The Bigfoot Scenic Biway  is recognized by the
U.S. Congress and by the Federal Highway Administration. Designated 2001.'
The USDOT & The U S Forest Service Both Recognize Bigfoot As Being
A Real Endangered Species
Bigfoot Encounters Continue At Mt. Cheaha
Alabama's Highest Point
Mt. Cheaha
It was December of 2010, That a long trail of Bigfoot foot prints were
discovered by hikers along one of the hiking trails at Mt. Cheaha. This area of
Alabama has been quite well known for occasional  Bigfoot sightings over the
years.  Not far from here in the small town of Waldo, in the 1970s & 80s was a
lounge named The Bigfoot Lounge. I was told it was named that for the many
Bigfoot sightings in that area. A man connected with Alabama law
enforcement told me that on one particular mountain near Talladega, a Bigfoot
or a family of them had lived there for as long as he could remember. He
claimed there was always several sightings a year from mostly hunters.
Sometime someone driving
the highway would spot one. Waldo, Talladega, and Mt. Cheaha are all located close to each other and all are in, or
boundry the Talladega National Forest.
Recently I received an email from yet another camper who has encountered the sounds,,, the screams of Bigfoot at
night. They were camping at one of the camp grounds there and heard the unmistakable screams that are associated
with Sasquatch. This was last June.
I plan a trip to Mt. Cheaha very soon and although I will not be able to hike and search the woods, i will take close
notice of anything that may be visible from the road.

Dr. Melba Ketchum, Bigfoot DNA
The following article is my thoughts and opinions on Dr. Melba Ketchums extensive  research and work
she and her staff have completed on Bigfoot DNA.
Dr. Melba Ketchum
I have had the pleasure to listen to Dr. Ketchum on Coast To Coast Am, (late night radio talk show)
with George Knapp, on two different occasions . And also an interview on another radio show that
is on youtube.com.
First I would like to relate what happened to me only a few days ago. A person I have known many years, stumbled
across my website. I had never mentioned to them that i had one. And a paranormal one at that. Here in Alabama you
have to be careful who you mention Bigfoot, ghosts, UFO, or anything paranormal to. Mention it to the wrong person
and you'll be labeled crazy, laughed at, ridiculed and made fun of, for the remainder of your life. . Oh, how the close
minded, or ignorant people as I call them,  love to ridicule!  But after reading some of  this site they called a family
member and told them to check it out. They both are very into and interested in the paranormal. Both were surprised I
had a paranormal site. 'He's just a simple ole country boy..' they both mused, who'd ever thought Jim was so big into
Bigfoot and the such.
To me and many men here in the south, being labeled a 'simple, good ole country boy' is about the highest
compliment you can get! It is to me anyway! When your a simple, good ole country boy, you are an honest and sincere
person, a person who's word can be taken, a person who doesn't think they are better than any one else.

Now back to Dr. Ketchum,,, this is somewhat how she came across to me on the radio. (Not simple, ole or country), but
a very sincere, honest person who's word can be taken.
Dr. Ketchums analysis of her Bigfoot DNA findings called 'Novel North American Hominin' was suppose to be
published but for some reason or reasons the journal that was suppose to publish it declined to do so.  This was much
the topic of her radio interview on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013...why didn't they publish it... after all, they had told her they
Well here's my opinion on why the journal didn't  published it....
Greed, jealousy, and money.
No matter what you research and find out or learn about Bigfoot, there's always someone telling you how completely
wrong you are. Everyone wants to be the utmost authority on them. As far as i know there is not one in captivity being
studied. So the theories we serious researchers come up with are the conclusions we make after many long hours in
the field. That's the way it is with us anyway. Many of the 'noted' Bigfoot people are very greedy in wanting everything
they say to be gospel. Face it, it just doesn't always work out that way. The jealousy... again there are those who wish
they'd came up with her findings. They want to be in the spot light. And the money part. To me this is the main problem
not only with Bigfoot but with everything. Bigfoot is a big money maker right now. There are countless Bigfoot shows
on TV so that means big money for some one. The people on the shows, the creators of the shows and the advertisers.
Why do you think so many networks have Bigfoot shows? It is what the public is interested in this week and that
means viewers, and that mean money to advertisers. To the people with museums and other attractions that bring in
Bigfoot dollars, they don't want this mystery solved. It could be a dent in profits. Oh and the big money book deals with
publishers. I don't mean like the little booklets i have done to help finance research and website costs, I mean the
thousands of dollars book deals lots of big name bigfoot people have and will be getting in the future.
Dr. Ketchums analysis is available through download for a fee. You can click in her name and search on the Internet for
it. I believe Dr. Ketchum and her findings. There were many things she said that I know to be true from investigating the
creature  myself.

Bigfoot Seen Crossing Highway 22 ! October 10, 2013
If you have read this site, you know of Zana.  Zana is a piece of real estate that lies between Daviston and New Site,
Alabama. It is a supernatural place ! ...to say the least. I'll get an article of what i know about Zana, on here soon. Last
night I received another Bigfoot sighting report from Zana (10-10-13). This is an area in Tallapoosa County where
numerous sightings have been reported to me. Not only Bigfoot sightings, but ghosts and other paranormal things as
well!  The sighting was made at 7:05 PM. It was dark now that the days are getting shorter. The witness had been to New
Site and was returning home. They had just passed Chappell Road and was heading east on Hwy. 22. This is the area I
sometimes refer to as the Straight away. It is about 1 mile in length.

The First Week Of November Brings Two Bigfoot Sightings In Clay Co.
Ashland and Lineville are the two major towns in Clay County, Alabama. Both are located along Alabama Highway 9. Last
week, (the first week of the month), a large Bigfoot was witnessed by a local resident in a location between the 2 towns.
The sighting was made in their back yard while doing some afternoon yard work. According to what we've been told, the
person has a large wooded area behind their home. While working they thought they noticed some movement along the
edge of the forest out of the corner of their eye. As anyone does, they too glanced to the direction of the movement. To
their surprise and shock, a large Bigfoot was walking next to the trees. It was a deep brown color and walked slightly
slumped forward.  It apparently paid the land owner no attention as it journeyed onward. The landowner was extremely
frightened and ran into the safety of their home, although they say the Bigfoot showed no hostilities.

A sighting occurred shortly after the sighting above. We are still working on this sighting that happened in the
Millerville-Ashland Area and will have the details shortly on Recent sightings Page
Numerous Reports are coming from Winston, Cullman & Lawrence
June 2014...Reported sightings of Bigfoot had slowed this summer, but over the last few weeks, sightings of the elusive
creature have been reported to us. Winston County being the most reports, then Cullman second and some from
Lawrence. Tallapoosa Has had its share as well lately. Logging has resumed in Tallapoosa, that always brings them out
of the woods. Something is going on in Winston Co., several sightings in and near the Sipsey Wilderness.
I am still getting all the details on the sighting. The witness says they were startled and shocked at seeing one, and
seeing one so plainly! As the Bigfoot passed the sign, the witness says they could actually see the long hair on the back
of its head and shoulders flowing, moving! They claim a facial outline was quite plain.

I and the witness have been to the location of this sighting and have measured the sign for the height of the Sasquatch.  
In our conservative opinion, the creature stood a good Nine feet tall !   This area, the Straight Away, has been a location
of numerous sightings over the years and many times, it has been a huge creature reported. Our team will be
investigating this sighting and area in the coming days..... and nights.
As you approach the end of the Straight Away going east, you'll see a large
yellow road sign. It is a diamond shaped, left turn curve sign. And on
Thursday night a Bigfoot walked in front of the sign as the witness saw
him or her very well! As with all road signs, this one too is reflective. The
car's headlights made the sign appear lighted,,, well lighted. According to
the witness the head and shoulders were extremely visible and plain with
the curve sign providing light. The creature took about 3 steps to cross the
highway. It came from the drivers right and walked to the left.  As it reached
the edge of the highway, it faded into the right of way and disappeared into
the thick, dark woods.
We sell these items to finance the site and investigations. REMEMBER, that just because someone is wearing our
logo, it doesn't mean they are a member. If you have reason, ask them for their membership certificate, if they are
claiming to be a member of this society. We have few members. But just as other organizations like The University
of Alabama and Auburn University, they sell items to finance their colleges. Not everyone that wears Alabama or
Auburn, t shirts and caps play football for them. It is the same way here. You can always email us with questions
concerning members.
Bigfoot Footprint Casts Mysteriously Disappear
According to a person who made plaster casts of Bigfoot  footprints, after turning the casts over to a
professor at The University of Alabama, the casts have mysteriously disappeared. No one including the
professor knows anything about them and claim now they never saw them.   Even though they
personally handed the prints to him!...(the professor.)
The casts were made in the Tuscaloosa area near the Warrior River some time ago by a husband and
wife. They photographed the casts before the husband decided they should let  the university look at
them for  evaluation since the prints looked human but were about 18 inches long by 5 plus inches wide.
They never heard anything from Alabama or the professor so one day they contacted the professor
again to inquire about  them. .. What he thought they might be. He denied ever having them and acted if
they  were making up the story. Then sometime later, the wife purchased a book by a well known  
Bigfoot author and in the book were photos of the casts they had turned over to Univ. of  Alabama.  She
says she recognised the prints the second she saw them.
If you have photos of prints or cast you've made. I will post those photos on this site and will give you
credit if you want your name with them, we do keep identies confidential, unless you say it is OK to do
Photo is not
one of the
prints, it is
a file photo.

Is it a Bigfoot or a Genoskwa ?
According to many Native American Indian Tribes, there are two different Sasquatch creatures
roaming our woods and country sides. One is the mostly gentle Bigfoot as they are known,
that may be seen in daylight or nightime. But he has a cousin that is more on the aggressive
side, the Genoskwa,  do a search on google or on you tube. The Genoskwa is said to have
attacked Indian villages and killed tribe members. It is also supposed to have eaten its
victoms. Its favorite way to kill is to twist off the head! In groups it is suppose also to have
attacked entire villages and killed numerous people at a time.
The Genoskwa
It is suppose to be larger than a normal Bigfoot and have a rock hard skin, which may be dried mud
from living under ground in damp or wet underground tunnels. The Genoskwa is only seen at night
and spends days in caves or tunnels. It too has a very bad odor, which may be from living
conditions. The normal Sasquatch has been reported as bad smelling sometimes, but that could be
a defence similar to a skunk. Maybe if they feel your too close a quick shot of musk could send you
in the opposite direction from them. The Genoskwa is said to be very mean and ill tempered. They
are larger than Sasquatch, so that means nine feet plus!  Use caution on your night time outings
especially in areas of caves like many National parks. Could be that Genoskwa is responsible for
the many disappearances in National Parks
Historical drawing of

one , I might add.  I received this photo and an interesting story with it a few
weeks ago, I apologize to the sender I haven't been able to up date the site with
the story. I am doing better , after all the surgery I have had in August, I am sorry
