Leon Drew - Cowboy and researcher of the unknown
Leon Drew - Cowboy and researcher of the unknown

This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.

Interview with Researcher Leon Drew
The interview series rides on in our 11th installment, who better to interview than modern day cowboy Leon Drew. Leon gallops the plains and rides tall in the saddle while in the mountains of the great state of Colorado. Not only does he research Bigfoot, he also guns down ghost in the spirit world by conducting ghost hunts. Nothing can escape this Posse! (Cue the western music)

- Start Interview -

Tom: How long have you been researching/studying Bigfoot?
LD: Last 5 years consistently but have been reading and studying the topic since 1974.

Tom: What got you interested in Bigfoot, Was there a particular event that got you started?
LD: Recently, it was after two visual encounters along the road I live on. Originally started after seeing  the TV show ‘In Search Of” and the  70’s  Bigfoot Docudrama.

Tom: During your research/studying of Bigfoot, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a Bigfoot?
LD: NO, my 3 visual encounters, 2  lasting only 3-5 seconds,  and the face to face, lasting about 45 seconds.  All was nonaggressive.

Tom: It seems Skeptics are always ready to attack Bigfoot research, How do you deal with it?
LD: 1) Ask then why they don’t believe. 2) give them examples of recently discovered species IS Bonobo Chimp. 3) Tell of my encounters and my theories. I, myself, am skeptical of all evidence I see and try and debunk it. If you have blind faith in all evidence you are not doing research, you are doing a injustice to the creature and the hope of ever getting “Mainstream Science” to accept it.

Tom: Would you like to see Bigfoot accepted and/or proven to the general public?
LD: I would like to see a major study done that has credible scientist on it along with experienced field researchers to identify and catalog the main species and the 3-5 subspecies that make up this cryptid. 

Tom: What is your favorite time of year to research/study Bigfoot, When do you have your most success?
LD: Late winter to early spring in the Pikes Peak region . As some snow is still around to see track lines but warm enough to  get  movement of family groups. Also before tourist season starts and the groups move deeper and higher up..

Tom: Do you have a favorite Bigfoot story or report?
LD: Yes, the one Dorraine Fisher took. (Speaking of his interview with DF - found Here )

Tom: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying Bigfoot?
LD: Find some other reason to be in the wilderness! Also do more Paranormal research! I try to never stop learning and expanding my life knowledge!  We should never stop learning or yearning to expand our minds and souls!

TM: Thanks for doing the interview. Good luck with your research and we hope you always have happy trails.

- End Interview -

Over the yeas we have turned to Leon on several occasions, he has always helped us out and gave use some insight on varies things. So thanks for that as well.

As for me, my day is about spent, I think I'll just ride off into the sunset for today.
