John Vandeventer was born in Dallas and raised in Plano Texas, he still has a lifelong fascination for military aircraft which he developed as a young boy. This fascination led to him serving in the USAF for 16 years. His fascination for military aircraft also led to another lifelong fascination with UFOs.

The Second Edition of the same book, RELICS (The Dark Autumn) was published by Empire Publishing in October 2021. “RELICS ; The Honobia Remnant” is a sequel to the first book and the second in a planned trilogy. This sequel although technically another Sasquatch story, brings in more of the author's interest in military and aviation and the UFO Phenomenon. The sequel has been five years in the making. Although not previously interested in Sasquatch before writing the first RELICS book, John has received many accolades from the Sasquatch community. Many Sasquatch enthusiast have labeled RELICS as the best and most realistic Sasquatch novel ever written.

After an intense experience while camping  with his 13 year old son in 2013 Chris began actively searching for evidence of the target subjects. In 2015 his focus in the field turned to audio recording and still is today. His goals are not only learning more about the behavior of the target subjects through long term field studies of specific areas and the fauna with in those areas but improving on audio recording and vetting potential suspect sounds has become a major part of his field work.

Ep. 320 Todd Neiss, Veteran and Bigfoot Researcher

Join me as I speak with Todd Neiss about his experiences and research. As well as his incredible first sighting that launched him on a life-long mission to prove this mystery we call bigfoot.

Bigfoot witness-turned-researcher, Todd M. Neiss has been an active investigator for over 28 years. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, he grew up hearing of these legendary creatures, alternately known as Bigfoot or Sasquatch, but gave it little credibility beyond that of a good old-fashioned campfire tale designed to frighten young campers. All of that changed for Todd in the spring of 1993.

Since that fateful day, Neiss has conducted numerous investigations including several long-term expeditions in the Coastal, Cascade and Blue Mountain Ranges of Oregon & Washington, as well as Northern California, Arizona, Alaska, Nebraska and British Columbia. Todd believes that, in the tradition of Jane Goodall, Biruté Galdikas and Diane Fossey, the best way to obtain credible evidence of the existence of these fascinating beings is to insert a small research team into the heart of prime Bigfoot habitat for an extended period of time; ideally for 45 to 60-day rotations. In doing so, he hopes to acclimatize the creatures to their presence and eventually overcome their inherent apprehension of humans.

Neiss co-founded the American Primate Conservancy with his wife, Diane Stocking Neiss five years ago. The conservancy was granted a “Domestic Non-Profit Corporation” status by the state of Oregon On October 15, 2015.  Their primary mission is “the discovery, knowledge, research, recognition, and protection of the Sasquatch.”  The organization has been quietly organizing expeditions, conducting investigations, and participating in multi-media and public speaking engagements in an effort to promote their agenda.  They have been actively pursuing grants, donations, sponsorships and volunteers for ongoing research projects.

Todd and his wife currently live near Mount Hood, 50 miles east of Portland, Oregon.  Nestled in the beautiful Cascaded Mountains, the “Chateau de Squatch” is in an ideal location for which to conduct their research and serves as the temporary headquarters for the conservancy.

The American Primate Conservancy has a website ( which provides information about the Conservancy, projects past and present, theories, and more.  Anyone with a legitimate sighting is encouraged to contact Neiss at 971-570-0097 or by e-mail at  He promises to treat every report confidentially, respectfully and professionally.

He has been actively investigating since 1997, and in 2008 fate brought him to Oregon where he dove headfirst into the subject of Bigfoot. His 2011 sighting in the Mt. Hood National Forest served to deepen the passion of his pursuit.

Shane has done extensive Bigfoot related research in California, Oregon, and Washington, and spends a tremendous amount of time in the field camping, hiking, and exploring. He is a proud core member of The Olympic Project, as well as a member of Project Zoobook, and is a co-host for the Monster X Radio podcast

NOTE: My audio is a little low in the beginning but levels out shortly after that. Working out the kinks of new equipment to bring you all a better show!

Jerimiah was always taught the ways of woods. His Gramm would tell him stories of the bigfoot and other cryptids in the Mohawk lore. He enjoyed the stories until one day at the age of 7, his mother showed him a picture in a book called mysteries of the unexplained. There was a picture of the famous bigfoot by the name of Patty and from that point on he was obsessed. He was always a believer. But he didn’t become a knower until he had his first encounter in 2000. Jerimiah has researched all over the country and experienced many of the same things from different types of this creature. Since his first sighting in 2000, Jerimiah has witnessed and had up close and personal experiences with several other Sasquatch as well as other entities as well if that's what you want to call them.

Ep. 315, Tate Hieronymus Bluff Creek Project

Join me as I interview Tate Hieronymus of the Bluff Creek Project!

Tate Hieronymus, is originally from Kansas City, MO, but ended up moving to Des Moines, IA which he adopted as his home. There, he grew up around music and played music most of his life. Iowa is where his interest in Sasquatch started, primarily with the Patterson Gimlin Film. Tate ended up moving to California where his Bigfoot research really took off. Tate eventually made it to Bluff Creek with his Dad and a couple friends. It wasn’t until the second time he went, he accidentally ran into Tom Yamarone, Terry Smith and Cliff and Bobo from Finding Bigfoot. A few more times of going back up to Bluff Creek, around 2017, he ended up meeting the guys from the Bluff Creek Project and joining the group. Tate made a short documentary film about the BCP (Bluff Creek Project), and was able to get an interview of Bob Gimlin standing in front of the Big Tree that can be seen in the PG Film. It was a great addition to the film. The full interview is one of a kind, according to Daniel Perez, which per request had Tate write a little bit about that interview for the Bigfoot Times. Only 1 minute and 32 seconds are publicly available. The full 6 minute interview is not. The full interview can be seen at the North American Bigfoot Center in Boring, OR. In his time living in California, Tate was able to join the BFRO.

Tate has had a few encounters as well. One in Bluff Creek and one in Southern California which he was able to obtain a thermal video. The thermal video will be released later this year (2021) in a new film he currently working on. Tate eventually moved back to Iowa where he started doing more music. He joined a band called The Paddlers, and became the guitar tech for a band called The Envy Corps. When COVID hit, and Tate suggested to BCP guys that they should all should start a podcast and that’s when the Bluff Creek Project Podcast was made and Tate has been doing that since.

Shelly Alston a native Arkansan and mother of two fantastic kids. Gregory, who just turned 18, and Presley, who has given her two of the sweetest grandchildren that anyone could ask for.    The Arkansas farm where she currently lives and spent most of her childhood, has been in the family since 1897 when it was homesteaded by her great great-grandparents. It was on this farm where Shelly experienced her first sighting at age eleven. Shelly moved away after high school and spent eighteen years in the event industry then moved back home in 2008. Upon moving back, she began experiencing Sasquatch activity and sightings on a regular basis, which continues to this day.  For several years she didn't reach out to any researchers until after her son saw a sasquatch in 2014. A local researcher came out for an hour but never did any follow up.  Reaching out to the internet to find others who have experienced the same type things has connected her to some really great people, especially in the SBA. Shelly is amazed at the number of people, from all walks of life, who have had real-life experiences.
