The Cowman of Copalis Beach

Have you ever heard of the Cowman of Copalis Beach? This cryptid isn't actually a cow-man(I actually don't think I've ever heard of those), but a Bigfoot. Well, actually, multiple Bigfoots.

In the 1960s, a family living in Washington state had encounters with some Bigfoots on their property.

"A family in Washington had terrifying encounters with a Bigfoot in the mid-1960s. A man working for a logging company came in late one Monday and told his boss he didn't get there on time because 'something destroyed our house this weekend.'
"His boss asked if he meant 'someone,' but the man told him it was not a person. His boss asked him to explain what happened.
"When the man, Jon, got home the previous Friday, his youngest son, Tim, told him he had seen a 'cowman' walking in their field. Jon asked him if he meant he had seen a neighbor wearing a cowboy hat. 'No daddy, he was a cowman, furry and stinky like the cows.'
"Jon went and asked his wife is she knew about what Tim had seen. She said he had come running into the house that afternoon saying there was a cowman stuck in the fence. She could tell he was very excited, and went back outside. Of course, when she went out, the cowman was gone. She did, however, smell a horrible odor and saw the barb wire fence moving where Tim said the cowman had been stuck."

The above text is excerpted from part of the Cowman of Copalis Beach chapter in my next book United States of Monsters. It will cover U.S. cryptids like Cryptid U.S., but will have information on many cryptids that I didn't write about in the first book, including the "cowman."

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…
