The founder of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization said Bigfoot is as close as any mountain range in New Mexico.
Matt Moneymaker told Action 7 News, evidence includes video footage.
His show, Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet Channel, showed an image caught on infrared camera of a creature walking in the woods deep in the Jemez.
“I know they’re there because I’ve heard them myself during expeditions,” he said. ”But there are so many witnesses up there, people continue to see them and that’s how we know they’re still there.”
But they’re not the only ones researching in the land of enchantment.
Rob Kryder of Kryder Exploration has video of what he believed was a Sasquatch standing on a ridge in the Sandias in 1995.
He enhanced the shot to see if it was a tree, but he says it’s clearly a Bigfoot.
“We don’t see a lot of fear response,” explained Kryuder. ”We see a lot of thoughtful intelligent movement, they’re extremely extremely strategic.”
He showed me this footprint cast of a male, about 12 feet tall who runs around with a female in the Sandias, East of the Northeast Heights.
But Kryder has also found evidence near Madrid.
Kryder and his team have been tracking a family of three for about a year in the Eastern Ortiz Moutains.
They found trees pushed over, which researchers said is a form of communication or warning.
They also found bark ripped off of the ones left standing.
At night, they have caught their howls.
“It was completely different,” said Kryder Exploration researcher Melissa Thompson. ”There was nothing wildlife-wise that we were able to get that matched what we were seeing.”
And that’s not all!
Fellow team member Josh Lawrence said he saw “eye-shine” or a Bigfoot staring at him through some trees during an evening investigation.
“Their eyes are big,” he said. ”I mean, bigger than a dog, a cat, or a rabbit.”
Of course, most of you are still skeptical, but that doesn’t deter these Bigfoot believers.
“There’s enough physical evidence out there to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt a thousand times over,” said Kryder.

Then, there’s “Finding Bigfoot,” a hit series that follows a team of investigators as it tracks the elusive sasquatch. They’ve been all over the United States and the world investigating accounts and video clips of purported Bigfoot sightings, which to my untrained eye often look like guys in black clothes or ape suits.
The New Mexico episode centered on a nighttime thermal video taken in the Jemez on an outing of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization in 2011. The TV team camped out in the Jemez in the same spot that the BFRO captured a figure lurking in the woods and tried to lure a sasquatch by howling and urinating to mark territory in hopes the apeman would move in to defend it.
They also held a town hall meeting at the Los Ojos saloon in Jemez Springs, where New Mexicans described ‘squatch encounters. A woman recounted a Bigfoot peering into her cabin window. A man said he saw two running across N.M. 4 at dusk. And two campers told of a big apeman tearing apart their campsite.

FARMINGTON — A smashed watermelon is spread out in the middle of a dirt road in Upper Fruitland, a community where everything from giant pterodactyls to walking lizards to furry children have been reported.
The watermelon happens to be for Bigfoot, another one of the inhabitants of the bucolic town on the outskirts of the Navajo reservation.
“My grandma left it for him,” says Felicia Frank, who lives nearby. “I said, “Grandma, you’re feeding Bigfoot?’”
Down the road, Frank points out where several people have sighted the legendary, hairy being, along with other odd species.
“Things like this happen all the time on the rez,” she says, noting that it is not just in Upper Fruitland that these extraordinary sightings occur.
It’s just a matter of getting people to talk about it.
Talk about taboo
SANOSTEE — There’s only one rule when it comes to hunting for Bigfoot: Don’t.
Whether you call it Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Skookums or one of the more than 60 names American Indian tribes have given the legendary beast, the harder you look, the less likely it is you’ll find him, said Frank Smith, supervisor of the Sanostee Senior Center and keeper of tales from the various recent sightings.
“If you look for it, you never see it,” Smith said Wednesday. “You have to be in the right place at the right time. Or maybe it’s the wrong place at the right time.”
The lunchtime conversation Wednesday at the senior center briefly turned to Bigfoot. The topic got smiles, chuckles and the occasional knowing smile. Many don’t believe the stories of sightings, but a few swear they have seen the creature firsthand.
They are not alone.
Mobile photo messages, emails and word-of-mouth stories have circulated the northeastern chapters of the Navajo Nation in recent months. Some photos show giant footprints in the snow or mud; others show shadowy figures at water’s edge or among trees.
All of the accounts are similar: a hulking, hairy figure is sighted standing or walking upright, leaving giant footprints in the earth and spooking animals and humans. Other reports tell more gruesome tales of slaughtered or missing livestock.
But the particulars of each story vary as much as the people who tell them.

Kirk B. (a BFRO investigator from Washington State) brought down his FLIR H-series handheld imager for the 2011 BFRO New Mexico expedition, at a remote hotspot in the mountains outside Los Alamos.
During the trip he recorded footage of what some BFRO members believe is a sasquatch watching the camp at night.

The wonderful Sandy Penny has added a new page to the Wake Up Now site. It lists vendors and what they will be offering. That doesn’t include speakers that will also have their own vendor tables to sell books (or whatever), answer questions and chat.
I just realized today at the meeting that we are now less than 2 weeks away from the conference. I am both excited and nervous – more excited though. Of course, I will be there, but not until afternoonish and on into closing time. There may be a few extra surprises, but we will have to see if those pan out.
BTW, if you are planning on attending, purchase your tickets online now because they are going to jump in price at the door.
The special rate of $95 per ticket for this 3-day event will end on 2/14 and the price will jump to $115 per ticket.
