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

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
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 ! 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.

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.

Another Bigfoot Sighting In Clay County !
Tuesday 11-18-14, near the intersection of Bishop Road and Clay Co. Rd. 5, two  people saw a Bigfoot cross the road as they
traveled toward Ashland, Al.  It ran out of and into dense forest land. The driver immediately stopped but the elusive creature
once again had 'disappeared in the bushes'. It was reported, very Dark Brown...(Several reports from this area lately)
A New  Formation Being Found
in Central Alabama
Over the winter a new stick formation showed up in East Central
Alabama. The photo at right is the first one of these I found. This
particular formation was discovered in southern Clay County.

We Are  Planning To Conduct An
Alabama Bigfoot Society Seminar & Tour
Within a month of this discovery, I located three almost identical formations in Horseshoe Bend \National Military Park.
Overall there have  been about two dozen found , measured and photographed as of today. This may be nothing new
to other parts of Bigfoot Territory, but it is certainly new here. Because it reminds me of a bow and arrow, that is what I
have named this formation... A 'Bow and Arrow'.  I have also been recording data of each formation and have found
something very interesting and to me quite unexplainable about all I have found so far. If you have this formation in
your area, I would be interested in comparing results.  I ask other serious researchers please send your photos, for
comparison, also  all and detailed measurements.  Angle of 'arrow' and compass direction of arrow. Lengths and
heights also please. If you experienced any problems or not  while measuring formations
From my research I believe it is possible some, or all may be a portal. If you believe this as well I would like to know
what makes you believe so.  I prefer not to disclose or discuss my finding and opinions on the website, in fear of
contaminating  your thoughts,  findings  or opinions.
Bow & Arrow
We have been advised this information is incorrect. If so, we apologize for any mis leadings,
however we found this on a  website and assumed they knew what  they were talking about.
Hoaxers Are Something We Unfortunately Are Forced To Endure
From Time To Time
We receive reports from all over Alabama, the U.S.,  and the world as well. We investigate all those reports possible.
Some however, it is impossible for us to do so. ABS is run totally out of pocket, my pocket, so travel is limited. We do
now have members across the country that assist in investigations, also out of their pocket. Point being, bottom line is
we do the best we can in reporting sightings on here. Never the less, Hoaxers do fool us occasionally. Any one or
organization that claims they have never been 'taken' are simply telling a lie.  We receive numerous stories, photos,
videos, even evidence  every week. Almost all are from honest, credible people wanting to tell some one who believes
them their encounter. And we appreciate and thank those people.  But on the other side of the coin... Unfortunately in our
less than perfect world,  sometimes we receive  'manufactured evidence' for what ever the reason. The main reason, I
believe is to discredit  The Alabama Bigfoot Society. Perhaps I am to out spoken on my feelings and opinion of these
magnificent creatures.    When a hoax or a hoaxer  is discovered, we will admit, we were taken and move on, never to
mention their identity, existence,  or hoax again.
We Now Have Members Across The Country & The World
Some of those states include Mississippi, Texas, Arizona, Missouri, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West
Virginia, New Jersey, Florida, Oregon, Maine, and even as far away as Great Brittan & Australia

A Message From Founder... Jim
I apologize to the visitors of this site and to ABS members as well, that I cannot
update the site  as regular and often as I have in the past. Most of you know of the
sight problems I have experienced over the last 2 years. There are some days I can
see, most days I cannot see well enough to read email.  There is more going on now
than ever with Bigfoot, more sightings, more reports. I will get them on as I can see
to... (I hate getting old), Thanks for your patience.
We Are Glad To Announce..
We Now Offer Paranormal Counseling !
Many times people who encounter the unknown have a difficult time coping and understanding
what they have encountered. Many people just need someone to tell their experience to who is
open minded and understands what they are going through. Our counselors have been there and
know well the ridicule that sometimes follows a paranormal episode.

If you have had a paranormal experience and feel you have no where or no one to turn too,
please let our experienced staff assist you. You are not alone.

mystical, magical, enchanted land of Zana and the Alabama Bigfoot Highway, as I have named it
because of the many Bigfoot sightings along its path. Along the route we'll stop and discuss with you
places where we've encountered Bigfoot. And tell you how we managed to get 'close' to the creature and
creatures. Also where Black Panther sighting have been reported as well as  ghosts & UFO sightings ,
