The 24th Annual Bigfoot Conference is in 2 Days!



The 24th Annual Bigfoot Conference is coming up this Saturday from 2 to 8 PM at Salt Fork State Park. The Conference is hosted by longtime Ohio Bigfoot researcher Don Keating. Speakers for the event are listed below.


Dr. Jeff Meldrum

Meldrum is a full professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University. He has been investigating Sasquatch and other beings like it for nearly 20 years. He has an extremely large sasquatch footprint collection and is author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science and the Sasquatch Field Guide. 
Todd M. Neiss
Neiss has been actively investigating sasquatch for over two decades. He is in the Oregon Army National Guard and is also a veteran of the Iraq War. He has been on numerous television shows and speaks at various conferences in the US and Canada.

Diane Stocking Neiss

Diane founded "Stocking Hominid Research" in 2007. Like Todd, she has spoken at various conferences and has appeared on television. She became interested in Bigfoot at a very young age and co-authored the cryptozoology book Elementum Bestia in 2007. She lives in Oregon and continues sasquatch research with her husband Todd.

Carl L. Johnson

Johnson has been researching mysterious phenomena for three decades. He has  appeared on television shows such as Ghost Hunters, The Haunted, Most Terrifying Places in America, and more. He lives in Rhode Island.


The conference is taking place at the Salt Fork State Park lodge and is from 2 to 8 PM. There is a meet-and-greet tomorrow night. The actual conference is on Saturday, and tickets can be bought at the door for $15. If you are a current or former member of the military you can get a discount on ticket prices as long as you show some type of proof of military service. There may also be a cookout on Sunday.

I also saw that SOSBI will have a table at the conference Saturday, and they have a new T-shirt they will be selling. It'll be great to see them again, and I can't wait to meet Jeff Meldrum.

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
