This sighting has been mentioned twice now on Peter Davenport's NUFORC's website.

It concerns a sighting by two elk hunters in Taos, New Mexico. The interview with the hunters is from the Taos News.

The hunters said they were not prone to seeing things and did not believe in aliens.


The Santa Fe County residents had just come into Taos after several days in rugged terrain near Cerro de la Olla, also called Pot Mountain, northwest of town near Ute Mountain. They had a strange tale to tell and they weren’t sure of their reception. “We’re a couple of guys that don’t believe in much, but we believe now,” Brinkley said. They went hunting for elk. They encountered aliens or something else so strange they don’t know what to call it. Brinkley, 41, said he’s been going to the Pot Mountain area hunting for 15 years. He had never seen anything particularly odd. He said he works construction and on movie sets. He’s a family guy who doesn’t want anyone to think he’s crazy. He and Lucero have worked together for eight years. They say they aren’t prone to seeing things and didn’t particularly believe in aliens.



The two hunters headed out to scout an area for elk:




Opening morning of bow hunting season was Sunday (Sept. 1). The two men had gone a couple of days early to scout the area for elk. Lucero, 26, had never been there. They set up along the tree line on different sides of a field and waited. After three hours and no elk, Brinkley became restless. It was about 9:30 a.m. “I take off walking, creeping around through the woods, looking for elk,” Brinkley said. He reached the top of the mountain where there’s a caldera, a kind of wide bowl left behind by a collapsed volcano. He went to the edge on the southwest side. As he walked to the edge he noticed two figures on his side of the caldera. He thought at first they were hunters. But, they were “very tall shapes of these beings, standing side by side, staring right at me,” he said. He walked toward them across the brushy field. He estimates they were about 35 yards away. As a bow hunter, where measuring distance is critical to hitting a target, he said he’s pretty adept at it. He went around the bush and looked again. The figures were gone. He looked around and didn't see them. “Figured I would talk to them. They were gone, just gone,” Brinkley said.





They described what they saw:




He thought more about what he had seen: With their lower half concealed by bushes in the caldera, he had only seen them from the waist up. "The shape that would be like their heads, it looked like they had huge hoods on. It looked like two ribbons coming off either side to a point at the top and bottom (like a banana). The right side was black, left side was white and a little shiny. Torsos were kind of black, I couldn’t see many details. It definitely looked like clothes. In middle of the oval was just gray.” He thought maybe it was the back of hunters' heads. “But it looked too strange, too crazy.” Later, he drew what he could remember of them in a leather bound sketchbook he carries with him. And he drew what he saw next.




Brinkley hurried back to where Lucero was still waiting. Still no elk. “I was a little weirded out,” he told his friend. He told Lucero he had seen a couple of hunters and that’s probably what had scared off the elk. He couldn’t bring himself at first to say what he might have just imagined. They went back to camp. “I couldn’t take it any more,” Brinkley said. “I told him what I saw was weird. They were too tall, their heads were too big to be hunters.” “Anyone who knows me knows I don’t tell these weird stories.” Lucero said he had known something was up when Brinkley had walked quickly and noisily up to his position at the field. Normally his friend is quiet, a hunter’s slower, more measured speed through the bushes. After Brinkley told him, Lucero felt a little weird, too. “I didn’t know what to believe,” Lucero said. Brinkley kind of wrote off what he saw.


Then they see an strange structure:





On Labor Day (Sept. 2), they headed out again to hunt early in the morning and hiked all around the area. No elk. They got back to their Jeep at about 2:30 p.m. “We couldn’t figure out why there was no elk,” Brinkley said. They decided to drive to the other side of the mountain and see if there were other hunters or four-wheelers scaring off the elk. As they drove, the men saw no signs of any wildlife at all, they said. They drove about 10 minutes, when they saw it. They both work with movie sets. At first they thought it was a movie base camp. “It’s this big tent structure, like a circus tent, 50-60 feet tall. Coming off the left of it was this long building, almost like what you would build for an archery lane for target practice. It was a third the height, but really long, maybe a couple hundred feet.” They were about a quarter mile away and couldn’t see the bottom of the structure. They watched it for about a minute as they drove. “What is it,” he asked Lucero, “a base camp for a movie? Or are they building an alien ship set?” They drove down a little hill, lost sight of the structure for at most five seconds, Brinkley said. “When we topped the hill, it was gone. Just gone.” Lucero said he was watching it the whole time while Brinkley drove except for those few seconds. “There was no dust, there was nothing,” Lucero said. They drove around the area searching for what they had seen until dark. Nothing. “I just know it was real," Brinkley said. "It was huge and white and then gone.” ‘Profoundly unsettling’ When the two men reached a place with cell signal, they told a few friends what they had seen. They thought about calling the Air Force. A friend put them in touch with Peter Davenport, longtime executive director of the National UFO Reporting Center in Washington state. Davenport confirmed they had called him. “It was a dramatic story,” he said. “If it is true, it is profoundly unsettling.” He said out of the thousands of calls he gets every year about supposed alien sightings, they rarely describe seeing aliens on the ground. They aren’t the first hunters to see something they can’t explain. Four hunters in Challis, Idaho, in 2000 described having a large triangular craft hover a couple of hundred feet above them before moving off over the mountains. After listening to some 350,000 phone calls over 25 years, Davenport thinks he can tell those that are credible. This was one of them, he said. Brinkley and Lucero said they weren’t drinking and weren’t on drugs. The hardest thing is telling their story. “People probably think we are insane,” Brinkley said He said he didn’t believe in UFOs. “I sure do now,” he said. Lucero said he doesn’t know about aliens. “I just know I’ve never seen anything that big just disappear.” “The two aliens, you can say I imagined that. But you cannot explain something that big just — gone,” Brinkley said. After telling their strange tale, the hunters did what they came to do - go try one more time to find elk. Keywords

No in most cases I don't see it that way, but he mentions his phone and if it was that weird and they were not that distant and they had their previous experience.....

They both work with movie sets.


They could have an ulterior motive. Maybe; maybe not.


He said he works construction and on movie sets. He’s a family guy who doesn’t want anyone to think he’s crazy.


Then why did he go public and seek publicity? That they both work in the movie industry, would make me wonder if a desire to be on or create a show launched by this is a factor.

Well they were driving towards the thing, and went around a bend and it was gone.....probably didnt anticipate the giant thing vanishing. I have seen a few unexplainable/crazy things in my life, and you're not really thinking about reaching for your phone and snapping a pic....at least I was too mesmerized to take my eyes away.

Interesting find, Data.

Here are some pics to accompany your OP so that those who avoid links can take a good luck at these two fellas and their sketches.







What's of concern, as mentioned previously, is that the second event provided no excuse to not take pics.

The movie set reference and the fact that they said it looked like a circus tent made me think of the movie 'Killer Klowns from Outer Space'.

Yes, you can have an excuse to sometimes not take photos or videos. Here's my excuse for such an event. I took a walk with my wife and I had my video camcorder in my shoulder bag. Right outside our apartment building my wife continued to walk on the shady side of the street and I crossed to the sunny side. As soon as we exited our building I started to scan the sky as I've trained myself to do. Halfway up the block, between clouds, I saw a white "orb" zipping along. I caught the attention of a man walking towards me and I pointed out the object to him, as a witness, and we stood there gawking with the appropriate remarks. After the "orb" disappeared in the distance I came to my sense and yelled out that I forgot all about my digicam. Later, when I was in Central Park I videotaped a stationary white orb but I can't say it was the same "orb" that I had seen before. So, yes, certain events can affect your mental acuity. Fault not the hunters and even congratulate them for being "ethical" hunters (bow instead of unfair shotguns).

Red flag: one of the "witnesses" works on a movie set. AND construction. He's perfectly set up to come up with a model for "pictures" isn't he?

"It's Haley's comet, and he's landed in our back yard!"

I thought the same thing heh.

Either thing, I wouldn't want to see something like that way out in the hills and trees. See that, turn around and don't stop running until you reach the interstate.

So at first, he says they were "staring right at him." But when he describes them, he said that where their faces would be, all he saw was a gray oval.

Which was it? You can't say they were "staring" at you if they just had gray ovals for faces, can you?

I call BS.

Also, no pics? Come on.

And yes, data5091, come at me all you want with your criticism of my criticism of their lack of pics. Lay it on me. Yep, I'm closed minded, I'm scared of the "reality of aliens," whatever else it is you guys lay on folks who dare to ask some common sense questions. There are several questionabLe things about this story, and the fact that there are no pics is one of them.

This is what happens when you eat the forest fungi, while hunting elk.

"Brinkley, 41, said he’s been going to the Pot Mountain area hunting for 15 years".

Nobody found that hilarious?

Anyway, the older I get the more I realize truth is stranger than fiction.

Way back in '96 my aunt that lived on a farm outside a small town in Western Cape South Africa described to my father in strictest confidentiality (very conservative Christian) that she saw a ball glowing bright orange and then change color to red or yellow I can't remember which one coming over the nearby mountain range and then moved impossibly fast in the direction of the neighboring town.

She told no one else until she passed away.

So yeah reports like these always fills me with fascination.

Imagine you were the guy this happened to and you had to convince people of the veracity of your experience.

Not an easy thing and you risk a lot of ridicule especially if you are from a small community.
