Just got off the phone with Tony Felosi. He gathered a bigfoot track report today that was pretty interesting.

The man talking to Tony, who we will keep anonymous and call Jim, was a bit reluctant to share his story at first. From what he told Tony it is something that he normally don't tell people.

Here is the story and details of the event.

A crazy new song and video about our beloved Sasquatch is out now. Sasquatch Is Coming To Town is an original Christmas song written and recorded by Bo Allen. Music video filmed in Esko MN also created by Bo Allen and Ashley Allen. Mr. Allen is from my area and lives in Harlan county Kentucky.

Check out the video....enjoy!

The next film in the popular "Crypto Files Series" is nearing completion and a release date. The film was shot in Harlan, Kentucky at a local business that is home to unusual activity.

In this film, the team does extensive historical research on the building to help unlock some of the secrets. During the investigation part of the film the team captures a variety of unusual evidence. This evidence is topped off with an apparent capture of an actual ghost figure.

Its that time of year again, its time for the 5th annual Harlan Haunt Fest!
What is Haunt Fest you ask? Well, here is a little run down.

Harlan Haunt Fest is a popular culture and horror festival in the mountains of Harlan County Kentucky that features genre celebrities from film, TV, music, art and literature, along with special events, contests, prizes, Cosplay, crafts, music, masquerade, and all sorts of good fun, celebrating our haunted mountains and the Halloween season. Haunt Fest also blends in some Cryptozoology and paranormal, after all some of that stuff is pretty scary.

Now, here is TCC News host Jennifer Fugate and paranormal wizard Tony Felosi to tell you even more about this upcoming event!

Benham Theater: Specters of the Stage is now available on Amazon Prime. The title will be available on other streaming services in the near future. There will also be a DVD release and a possible Blu-Ray version in the future.

For those who are not familiar with the film series, this is the 5th film in the series. Here is the synopsis for the new film and other information.

I know for the passed little while we have not been posting up very many new articles. This is mainly due to our very busy schedule and the fact that a few members are tied up some real life issues.

Today I wanted to take a little time to bring everyone up to speed on what's going on. I also want to use this time to talk about a recent video capture of Bigfoot.

First I will start with the adventure we had last weekend. An adventure that took us to the famous Monroe House in Indiana.  

Back in 2013 there was a noticeable increase in Bigfoot sightings here in my little corner of Southeast Kentucky. It was one of the best years I have ever had in reports and in finding evidence. Now, I really don't know what caused this increase in sightings, but I'm guessing there were many factors that attributed to it.

In fact, I'm still stumbling across reports from back in  2013 that were not submitted to me. Today I want to share one such report that is very close to my location.

As I stated in a previous post, while at the Crypto Con I was told several Bigfoot, UFO and other stories. Some of these were of course not officially filed reports but some of them are very much worth sharing.

During the event one man, an older gentlemen, came and told me several fantastic stories. His sightings took place in an area of Harlan county that is home to several Bigfoot reports.

In this post I will share two of this stories. Here is the first one, which was very brief.

As some of you may know, I recently set up at the Crypto Con in Harlan Kentucky. During this event I was able to talk to a lot of people. I was able to talk to several witnesses who had sightings or found possible evidence. While some of the reports may not contain all the details, I think some of them have enough information to go ahead and document the event.

So, today I want to share a possible Dogman sighting that was reported to me during the event.
Artist rendering of report.
A few days ago I got in a interesting report from our local area. I know this area very well and have done quite a bit of Bigfoot hunting in this general area. There are several other reports from this area as well. I personally have found tracks and stick formation in this general vicinity.

It is my understanding that this event has never been reported until now. So, I'm very happy to document this sighting.

I just thought I would do a little post covering what an amazing event I was at this past Saturday. I was a vendor and I guess a minor celebrity, at this years Harlan Haunt Fest. I had a great time and got to see some old friends and make some new ones. My table was next to fellow crypid researcher Ron Coffey.

The event was an all day affair but there were also activities later into the night if a person wanted to continue. But for me the day started at 7am and ended at about 7pm, so by then I was pretty spent.

A few months ago, I met Bill Lancaster at a local Bigfoot event. At the time Bill was filming for an upcoming film titled "Cultured Bigfoot". I got to know Bill a little bit at that event and later was interviewed at another event for his film. Well, the film is getting much closer to being released and recently an official trailer was released. I thought it would be good to do some Q & A with Bill about the film and his interest in the Bigfoot phenomenon.

Here is our interview and the official trailer for Cultured Bigfoot.

Recently, myself and Tony Felosi of Harlan County Paranormal got another chance to investigate the old jail in Harlan county, Kentucky. The old jail is home to numbers murders, suicides and lord only knows what else. The jail has been a hot spot for paranormal activity for a while now, but as of late, it seems the activity has been on the increase.

This investigation yielded a host of evidence, as the activity was really high. I just want to make it clear that the building was on total lockdown. No one was in the building other than Tony and I. There were many things that we heard and had happen. Much of the activity was captured on either video or an audio recorder. There was some evidence, like some foot steps, that we both heard, that has been left out of the video below.

With that said, there was several EVPs and other disembodied voices recorded, alone with other unknown source sounds. It was pretty creepy and the EVP at the end of the video seals it.
Here is a short video of the investigation.

Welcome to episode 12 of Ninja of the Woods. The is a first for NOTW, this is an actual video edition of the show. Thats right, you finally get to meet the face of the voice, Big Jim himself.
In this episode Jim shows you a little of the area around him, talks about the upcoming April 22nd event and of course talks about Bigfoot!

We hope you enjoy this episode.
Here is the show.

Welcome to another episode of My Crypto World. In this episode I give an update on the upcoming Paramountain lecture series event and tell you about an awesome giveaway that will take place at the event. I also give an update on a film I'm working on and tell about a sighting that was reported to me. I also give some other information.

Here is episode 29 of My Crypto World

In this interview, we talk to paranormal investigator Tony Felosi. Tony is from Harlan County Kentucky and recently took part in Harlan Haunt Fest. Tony is also finishing up a book about his investigations, many of which took place in Harlan county. He is hopeful that his book will be out sometime in early 2017.

Here is our interview

TM: How long have you been researching/studying the paranormal?
TF: 8 years Seriously - Have been Interested and reading about Ghost, UFO's, Bigfoot, And Mythology since I was around 10 years old.

TM: What got you interested in ghost, Was there a particular event that got you started?
TF: The desire for more knowledge and the possibility of communication with other dimensions really got me into the Paranormal.

TM: During your research/studying of the paranormal, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a spirit?
TF: Yes, I have been scratched , Stepped on, clothes tugged etc. I think that most of the time that the stronger entities try and influence your mind into a state of being paranoid or fearful. This is why it is so Important that you are grounded and focused during Investigations.

TM: It seems Skeptics are always doubting the paranormal field, and make claims of evidence being faked, How do you deal with it?
TF: I try and use logic, and show them legitimate evidence that I have caught. But some people due to being close minded cannot be swayed no matter how compelling the evidence may be.

TM: What do you feel is your best evidence of the paranormal?
TF: EVP's from a killer and his victim. The killer was shot during his trial by a relative of the victim. I caught EVP's that were backed up by court records and newspaper articles. Also have a video of a figure moving in front of the camera during a fog machine experiment on demand.

(Here is that video. Please look at the very end of the video, A figure seems to move from left to right.)

TM: Do you have a favorite place you like to investigate?
TF: My favorite place to Investigate Probably would be the Old Jail and Courtroom in the old Harlan county courthouse that was built in 1928 and has seen at least 15 Murders and suicides.

TM: Do you have a place you would like to investigate but haven't got to, yet?
TF: Probably Waverly Hills and Leap Castle in Ireland

TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying the paranormal?
TF: Camping and woods survival , Tracking etc

End interview

That concludes our 26th interview in the series. If you would like to find out more about Tony's investigations, then you can hop over to Extreme Validation Parnormal Society facebok page. It appears the page has not been updated in a little while, but there are several interesting videos for you to ponder over. A special thanks goes out to Tony for doing the interview and sharing some of his work with us.

Whoa!, Hard to believe but I made it all the way to episode 23 of My Crypto World. For this episode I used a different camera, just purely for convenience, as I did not want to set up the other one. In this episode I alert you to an upcoming Bigfoot Seminar that I will be at and I talk about the very popular "Eagle Cam Bigfoot" video and how it caused me some issues.

Here is the episode.

Thanks and look for more in the future.

Once again, this report was taken by the BFRO but is of importance to me because it is in my area. Full credit to the BFRO and BFRO Investigator Stan Courtney. This is yet another sighting in Harlan county, Kentucky.

Here is the report.

- Start Report -

1981- 119 north to southeast Community college turn right onto 179 - near Louellen- seen by 2 people

OBSERVED: In 1981 me and my brother-in-law were going to work. I saw something ahead of us kneeled down alongside the road. As we approach it it stood up and walked backwards into center of road squated and looked at us then leaped over the embankment. It was about 7 feet tall, big legs, small upper body with thin longer hair on chest and arms, short neck and short thick hair on legs, dark brown in color. We got within 20 to 30 feet of it. Our headlights on bright. The road stays in bad condition. Travel is very slow.A bag of garbage torn apart was found where animal was seen kneeling.About 2 weeks later another person seen same thing running across the road .

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Stan Courtney:

"I spoke with the witness by phone.

He stated that he and his brother-in-law, both miners, were on their way to work at about 3 a.m driving the narrow roads of the Appalachians. The weather was cool and clear. As they came around a curve the animal was squatting along the road going through some garbage that someone had dumped. He quickly stopped the jeep. They were able to observe the animal for about thirty seconds in the high beam of the headlights. The animal took two or three steps backwards into the center of the road, turned and looked at them. Then it squatted down and leaped twenty to thirty feet off the road and was gone down into the ravine.

He described the animal as being about eight feet tall, upper torso being slender and weighing about 300 pounds. Because the hair was so tight he could see the definition of the muscles as it squatted. The calf muscles were especially huge. The black hair was very short on the lower body with somewhat longer and thinner hair on the chest and shoulders. The head was round with a short neck. He was unable to see any facial features.

I also spoke with his brother-in-law. He stated that the next year he had seen what he thought was probably the same animal briefly about a mile further up the road."

- End Report -

This sighting was back in 1981, but the area has continued to have sighting even until this day. This is an area where I have been a many times. In sharing these reports, it is my hope that others will come forward and contact me about their sighting or encounter.

The following is a report taken by the late Bobbie Short. I've had this report for several years now and decided to share it here. The original write up and report is the work of Bobbie Short. The report is significant to me because it is in my area. In fact is is only about 25-30 minutes away from me and is in the jointing county of where I live.

Here is the report.

- Start Report -
- Sept. 2000- Harlan County, Kentucky Sighting with hairs - A friend of mine, Joanna Carter, saw bigfoot in Harlan county. She was traveling on rural highway 1137 when something caught her attention on the side of the road. It appeared to be about 8 or 81/2 foot tall. Its arms hung ape-like, but it walked in a upright position like a human. The creature did not make sounds, but stared at her as he crossed the road. She stopped and examined the place where she saw him, and found a patch of hair that the creature had left on a branch that he had scraped against. She has this hair sample but is unwilling to let a scientist examine it as proof of her sighting.

This description from the witness in a later exchange of email:

The color of the creature I saw was probably what you define as a brownish/greyish/yellow/reddish mix. The texture of the hair was long and nappy. I could not tell the sex of the creature, but I do remember slight facial features: the head was long and wider at the bottom and formed a stiff lock of hair at the top.

The chest was quite bulky, and was significantly noticeable, as the hands were in the form of that of a humans, only covered in hair. It was running, as a human would run, and appeared to have red eyes. I saw the creature just last week (early June) while crossing a country road.

When he noticed the sounds of my vehicle, he ran swiftly into a berry patch along the side of the road, and then continued running through what I assumed to be the mountains/woods of Appalachia in Southeastern Kentucky. Thank you for your time and patience. Sincerely, Joann Carter"

Report taken by Bobbie Short - 17 September 2000

- End Report -

I personally have taken in several reports of Bigfoot encounters from Harlan. So they are here and I'm sure others have seen them and not reported it.
