Major Players Search in Yellowstone for Forrest Fenn’s Chest

Words out that some well known members of the chase will be crossing paths in Yellowstone Park.  Most these hunters are tight lipped but some are giving small bits of info, mostly the areas where they’ve been and now have ruled out.  Don’t blame them for keeping quiet especially with a large pack of would be treasure finding dogs of the chase nearby.  Must be exciting driving to the next good guess but the traffic this time a year could slow the pack down.  Hope to hear comments from anyone who cared to check out the blaze in the wood.  If you are new to this site make sure you read where I feel the treasure was and look at the many photos showing the way.

Who’s a major player one may ask.  Those who are favored by Fenn.  Seems some get a little more attention than others.  Communication with the treasure king himself.  Who of those lucky few stopped looking in April after a visit to Yellowstone? Theres a few looking for you. Fenn thinks whoever finds the treasure will not be able to keep it secret but can Fenn keep the secret.  Fenn let the dogs out time to let them in.

  1. Where’s the Capt? Where’s the pic? Where’s the latest from old man Fenn and his elusive clues? I think it’s been found and the game is over. Prove me wrong!


  2. Captpappy, in one of your posts you mentioned that FF hasn’t responded to you. Curious if you have heard ANYTHING from him??


  3. This is a copy of an email, which Forrest Fenn answered in private. This first part is a letter from me to Forrest: email me for his answer, see
    Dear Forrest Fenn,
    You recently told a blogger named “Cowboy” that any clues translated by nmtreasure were “worthless” and furthermore, “everyone wants to get in on the act”.
    Now, we at carefully track all emails and I have none from you asking for “OUR” interpretation of your clues and hints from “Thrill Memoir” so, unless you are now into reading minds, we are not sure how you knew they were no good?
    Not so long ago a made for television film was shot on our family’s ranch in southern New Mexico, it was called “Treasure of Victorio Peak”. I will not go into great detail, but it turned out to be an elaborate hoax.
    Our intentions at are out in the open. We do believe in your altruistic motives and applauded your “John Muir” ethic for challenging people to save our beloved Rocky Mountains and respect your sacrifice in this cause. That is admirable.
    However, the truth is you have never read our interpretation and your credibility may be in doubt?
    If you actually read this and read what we have gleamed from you poem and book, you will tell us that we are completely wrong, then we will remove our web site and refund to all the people who paid us for these translations. We believe that if there is a treasure hidden out here in New Mexico, based on your clues, it is near “Hidden Lake, NM”.
