Texas Local News: Photographer Snaps Picture of Bigfoot News anchor, Anissa Centers, reports on Bigfoot photograph
"No, I've never seen one , never believed in one," -- Texas photographer, who wishes to remain anonymous, believes he has now had his first Bigfoot encounter.

**UPDATE:  Astute BLC fans, Oscar Grogg and Bobby Kean, alerted us to Phil Poling's insightful analysis of the Bigfoot photo. You can watch it at the end of this post. 

In a report filed yesterday, October 21, 2012, KLTV reports of a Texas man who is convinced that he may have snapped a picture of Bigfoot after having rocks thrown at him. The investigation was done by Mike Hall of TexLA ,a Cryptozoological research team.

Below is an excerpt of the report followed by embedded video.

Photographer snaps possible Texas Bigfoot shots
By Bob Hallmark - bio

There have been reported sightings of bigfoot in remote East Texas locations, and even near Dallas, and a photographer says he has proof that bigfoot may be closer than we think. The Dallas area photographer, who remains anonymous , was never a bigfoot believer by his own admission.

"No, I've never seen one , never believed in one," he says.

But a huge stone thrown at him in the woods one camping trip, with no one else around, changed his mind.

"An object landed within ten feet of us that I know of no human being able to throw it that far. There was one about 10 foot tall. A family group drew in close, three of which got within 15 feet of me. It looked like something out of a Steven Spielberg movie, not human as I know it," he says.

He shot images in Shelby county of something moving in the woods. Outside of Dallas he shot images of something large and hairy watching from the trees. But light and shadow can play tricks. East Texas bigfoot researcher Mike Hall and his team from Texla crypto zoological research examined the images to see if they have merit.

"Some of the shots you can actually make out what looks like a pair of eyes. There is something there staring back at him taking video. There is something there, question is, what is it?," Hall says.

One shot looking very similar to the Roger Patterson bigfoot film of 1967. A crest or conical ridge on what appears to be the head.

"The cone looking head, in the still shot that's very compelling, something definitely moving across the brush just observing," says fellow researcher Larry Parks.

The photographer is keeping his identity anonymous but did say he would be releasing more video evidence in the future.

KETK: 'Bigfoot' comes to East Texas

KETK, a local Texas NBS affiliate files this report on the 10th Annual Texas Bigfoot Conference In the segment they focus on Daryl Colyer, co-founder of The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy

'Bigfoot' comes to East Texas
Conference in downtown Tyler unites enthusiasts

TYLER - After Daryl Colyer and his wife left a southeast Texas baseball game one night in 2004, Colyer says they actually saw what many call "Bigfoot."

"I saw this figure, about 40 yards in front me jump across the trail. It was upright, the size of a man, covered with reddish brown hair from top to bottom - jumped across the trail, took a little skip-hop into the woods," Colyer said.

But Daryl Colyer isn't your average Bigfoot enthusiast.

He's a Bigfoot investigator and vice-chairman of a non-profit organization called the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy.

On Saturday, the 10th Annual Bigfoot Conference was held in Tyler.

Apparently East Texas is a hotspot for Bigfoot sightings.

"East Texas is the part of Texas where most of the reported sightings come from. In fact, I would say as many as 90% of the reported sightings that we deem to be possibly legitimate reports are from East Texas," Colyer said.

Jack Wheeler and his friends attended Saturday's conference - they all believe "Bigfoot" exists - they just aren't sure what one might really look like.

"I think there's definitely something out there, I don't know if it's like a big huge hairy thing that attacks people, but there's probably something out there," Wheeler said.

"Out there" according to Daryl Colyer is 65 million acres of timberland in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. That's roughly the size of the state of Oregon. Plenty of places for the nocturnal primates to hide, Colyer says.

"It's a big world, and you know we're pretty much stuck in the cities and the interstate highways. There's a lot of timber out there," Colyer said.

And to Colyer, skepticism about Bigfoot is not only expected, it's a good thing.

"Have that skepticism, but have an open mind. Question it, look into it for yourself," Colyer said.

Does Bigfoot live in East Texas?

TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) - Tyler's Caldwell Auditorium played host to the 10th Annual Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy Conference, Saturday.

Bigfoot aficionados came from across the country to sort through latest findings and to separate what was fact and fiction surrounding the legend. A 44 inch lock of hair was also on display, reportedly found hanging in a tree in the Sabine National Forest.

"We certainly think that it lives [in East Texas]," said Alton Higgins, a wildlife biologist. Higgins is also board chairman of the TBRC. He said there have been a number of very credible sightings in the East Texas area, and the habitat is sufficient.

Daryl Colyer detailed his encounter with Sasquatch before an audience of conference goers. Colyer is now an investigator with the TBRC. "It's good to be skeptical about something like this," he said. "We expect people to have difficulty with this, after all, what we're talking about is extremely unusual."

Proceeds from the conference go to help the non-profit continue investigating future sightings.
