(Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization)
   The Gulf Coast BigFoot Research Organization was founded by Bobby Hamilton (Texas) in February of 1997. A couple of months later,
Jim Lansdale (Louisiana) came on board as the Co-Founder and together they built the
G.C.B.R.O. into what it is today.  The main members
of the core group are Michael Humphreys (Oklahoma), Barry Schockemoehl
(Oklahoma), Don McDonald (Mississippi), Ashley McPhaul (Alabama)
and Rogan Bird (Louisiana).  The
G.C.B.R.O. consists of many members, but most prefer to keep a low profile, due to the harassment and or repercussions from their peers or employers.

     We at the G.C.B.R.O. realized that a lot of research was being done on Bigfoot, but more so on the Creatures in the Pacific Northwest,
and that not much research, if any at all was being conducted in regards to the Creatures here in the South. We joined forces to turn all this
around and to bring to light more encounters and happenings from the South.  And shed some positive light on a long history of these creatures
 in the South.

     The G.C.B.R.O. has exploded with new members, who are either strong believers, or have had a Bigfoot encounter of their own, so
there is no skepticism amongst any members of our group as far as the existence of these animals is concerned.   Several of the newer
members who were strong believers have had their first encounters while in the field with the G.C.B.R.O. . We are self funded and are NOT 
associated with any other group or organization.  We feel that the best work is done in the field, and we spend as much spare time as
possible out investigating reports or looking for any new evidence of these elusive creatures, in an attempt to try and answer all the what, when,
where, why and how's involved with this mystery.  We don't seek publicity for or
15 minutes of fame with this subject, as most groups do. 
What little publicity that we have gained in the media's eye, has been very select and very positive towards our
work and the Bigfoot subject in
general.  One things for sure, if our name is brought up on the evening news, you need to pay attention, because we just solved the mystery.

The G.C.B.R.O. uses up to date technology, such as Thermal Imaging, Generation 3 Night Vision Equipment, Directional Microphones with
Parabolic Boosters, and Wireless Microphones for recording forest sounds.  Our current Night Vision Equipment is the very best available on
market, thanks to John and Chris at  US Night Vision.  For the VERY best deals on your Night Vision needs, contact John and Chris above
and tell them the G.C.B.R.O. sent you.  NO we don't get any kick backs, for referring anybody, to them.  They are just very dear friends as well as
 lifetime members of the G.C.B.R.O..
The G.C.B.R.O. is the only Organization that is willing to validate our own personal Bigfoot encounters and findings with a polygraph examination. 
With so many off the wall, wild claims being made about Bigfoot, by not only individuals, but also other groups, or organizations, we feel it is
imperative to make sure that we are not placed into the same category as those who have a wild or vivid imagination and/or a tendency to stretch
the truth.
We cannot place the same claim and back up any of the reports that have been submitted to us, due to not being able to fully investigate
some of these reports.  But we can back up our official findings after a complete on site investigation has been conducted on such said reports.
Anyone who is willing  to question our personal findings, can ask that we take a polygraph examination.  Each member of our group is willing
to do so at the expense of the person/persons who doubt our findings/claims!  If we fail the test, we will be glad to pay for it ourselves!  But don't
be betting on that to happen!  We report it as we find it with no additives.  We will willingly, do these things with one exception.  That the results be
shared unaltered publicly, on this web site as well as other forums and message boards on the World Wide Web, as well as other chat groups, and
other news servers, and public forums, on and off the World Wide Web.  We offer this after other persons/people and or groups/organizations, have
hoaxed and or falsified encounters, and or evidence, to gain the publics attention.  Alot of these people/groups/organizations, out of pure jealousy
of our personal findings have publically slandered the G.C.B.R.O. and made malicious statements that have no amount of truth to them whatsoever.
 These kinds of organizations and people only serve one purpose and that is to hurt the reputation of all in the Bigfoot Research Community, with their bogus claims.  We want all to know that the G.C.B.R.O. is a Legititimate, Honest, Caring, Scientific Organization.  Unlike so many others, we have
nothing to hide or cover-up with any of our claims, or findings!
     Any and all help in our endeavor is greatly appreciated. Enjoy your visit to our site.
