 “BigFoot” Expert and Investigator – Jim Smith

The BigFoot Experience


Bio Jim Smith:

Jim Smith is a 44 year veteran paranormal researcher and director of the Alabama Bigfoot Society based out of Wadley, Alabama. He’s been interested in “Bigfoot” since 1971 when he encountered one when he was 15 years old in East Central Alabama. In that specific year many people in the area encountered one or more of these creatures roaming the woods nearby.

Though most Bigfoot sightings are reported in the Pacific Northwest, Alabama is becoming a surprising hotbed of activity. Jim has learned that most of the sightings in Alabama occur around Mt.Cheaha along with counties such as; Tallapoosa, Talladega, Clay, and Randolph and becoming more common because of logging activity in the Bigfoot habitat.  Now due to reports that he has taken since forming the Alabama Bigfoot Society, he feels there may be over one hundred Bigfoot creatures lurking in the forests of Alabama.

According to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), there have been over 100 sightings in the state of Alabama since 1980. Nationally, there have been over 3700 Bigfoot encounters in the same period.

There are a number of Native American Bigfoot legends. The term “sasquatch” is a term derived from of one of the 60 or so native-American names for “big man” or “hairy man.”

It’s worth remembering that the gorilla was considered mythological until its existence was verified in 1902. The number of gorillas was estimated to be around 100,000 until another 125,000 were discovered in 2008 in the Republic of Congo.
