William Lunsford, is from Texarkana, Arkansas and has had over 40 Bigfoot sightings. He's been researching them for 43 years. He saw the Fouke monster in 1977 and he's been hooked on the subject of Bigfoot ever since. As a teenager, William was walking down a road when he saw something strange. “And this thing was on the side off the road. He had squatted down, and he had a limb in front of his face. And he stands up. he lifts this limb and then he keeps standing up." Lunsford stood frozen in fear. “And he looks at me, and he's just wobbling, but you can see his eyes. They're as black as coals. It looked like he was reading my mail, and I just thought "Oh my gosh!" I knew what I was seeing. He sits there for a minute. He teeters, and turns and just that quick. In two steps, he was in the woods."
William researches in multiple states and has had several experiences. Due to all of his sightings and experiences, he has tons of great stories to share!
Steven Hill has lived in southwest Arkansas all of his life. He has always had an interest in anything unusual or anything that's not supposed to exist. Growing up as close to Fouke as he did, Steven just wasn't convinced that bigfoot lived in the south. Even after a sighting in 2009, it still took a few years before Steven fully came terms with the these creatures being real and the fact that they lived in his part of the country. Steven researches quite often and has a great many awesome encounters to share!
