About Russ

Meet Dr. Russ Jones

I'm Dr. Russ Jones and thank you for stopping by. I've been doing Bigfoot research for decades, operating out of my house in Teays Valley, West Virginia and my farm in Athens, Ohio.
I've lived in West Virginia for over 30 years and am intimately familiar with the region. I grew up in southeast Ohio and have always spent time in the woods there. As a teenager I had a couple of what I believe were Bigfoot experiences and have been consumed and passionate about it my whole life. Aside from my two books, and the Wide-Open Research podcast, I have spoken to and interviewed hundreds of witnesses.
