My name is Jim Piper Jr I was born and raised in Central Illinois. I read my first book on the subject of Bigfoot when I was 7 in second grade. I have read and studied the subject all of my life. I witnessed Bigfoot first hand along side a chilly highway in October. As with most people it changed my life. Recently I have finally started to visit the woods and what I have found is amazing. I also have experience with the paranormal, and as a sensitive. I have performed research in this fields as well.
