The Ohio Bigfoot Conference is This Weekend!

The 2015 Ohio Bigfoot Conference is only a few days away! It will take place Friday thru Sunday, with the actual conference being on Saturday. The event is hosted by Ohio researcher Marc DeWerth. The speakers are listed below.



John Kirk III
John is a cryptozoologist from British Columbia, Canada. He is author of In the Domain of the Lake Monsters and co-author of Discovering Cadborosaurus. He is president of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club(BCSCC). In recent years he has become very involved with Bigfoot research.

Loren Coleman
Loren has been investigating cryptozoology since 1960 and is author of many books, including Cryptozoology A to Z(with Jerome Clark), Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America, Monsters of Massachusetts, and many others, including some that will come out this year. He is director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Maine. 

Jim Sherman
Jim Sherman is a Bigfoot Field Reserachers Organization(BFRO) investigator from Michigan. He is also author of Facing the Big Hairy Monkey-Thing: Searching for Sasquatch in the Real World which will be available at the conference. 

Bob Gimlin
Bob Gimlin was with Roger Patterson on October 20, 1967 when he saw and filmed the Bigfoot Patty in Bluff Creek, California. Bob didn't talk about the encounter for many years but eventually started talking about it at events and such like the Ohio Bigfoot Conference. He was also a speaker there last year. Bob is not a liar!

David Floyd
David Floyd is a professor at Charleston State University. He has a natural interest in Bigfoot and stuff of the sort and researches the socio-religious and psycho-cultural aspects of the phenomenon.


This is a conference I've been waiting on for almost over a year. It's gonna be awesome! You can check out the schedule for the event on the website. 

Jim Sherman, one of the speakers, also wrote a Bigfoot book about his experience as a researcher called Facing The Big Hairy Monkey-Thing: Searching for Sasquatch in the Real World. 

The conference will also have TWO Bigfoot movies premiering. One is an actual movie, Something in the Woods, which will premier Friday, and the other is a documentary on an Ohio Bigfoot called Minerva Monster, which will premier Saturday.

There are also some really cool t-shirts for the event. They are no longer available online, so if you didn't get one, there will be a few at the conference. 

I can't wait for this conference! After it I will post a review and pictures just like I did with Creature Weekend

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

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…

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.
