The Grafton Monster is terrorizing local farmers, and the A.I.M.S. team has caught him on tape!
Destination America has a hit show with ‘Mountain Monsters’. With a rag tag group of hardcore hunters and trappers, calling themselves (AIMS) The Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings are on the trail of the Wolfman, Devil Dog, Grassman, Wampus Beast and even the Grafton Monster! These guys are on the hunt and will not take their tasks lightly.
We’ve all watched shows over the years with groups searching for Bigfoot or other mysterious creatures. Shows like ‘Finding Bigfoot’ have taken America by storm over the past several years. Destination America’s ‘Mountain Monsters’ is the new kid on the block with season 2 just getting underway. Tracking, building traps and getting results for their audience is what this show is all about.
The latest episode, “The Grafton Monster” takes place in Grafton, West Virginia. It begins with a very interesting video clip showing a gray figure darting quickly through the trees. The AIMS group is headed up by John “Trapper” Tice is on the scene. This is not your average scientific type group but rather a rag tag group of mostly older bearded men. But don’t let that fool you. These guys are high intensity when it’s time to go on the hunt.
With a large repertoire of colorful metaphors Trapper and his team go after the Grafton Monster. It doesn’t take long for the action to begin and I do mean action! With thermal cams and shotguns in hand they go at it full speed.
If you want some serious Mysterious Monster/Bigfoot entertainment this is the show for you! Give it a watch on Destination America, you will be entertained.
Joe Watson has been interested in the unknown since he was a young boy. Growing up in rural Northeast Texas his interests were mostly in the classic sci-fi movies, King Kong, The Day the Earth Stood Still and Creature from the Black Lagoon. In the 1970s his oldest sister was living in Portland, Oregon when word of Bigfoot hit national news. He was instantly captivated by the thought of a giant man-ape in the Pacific Northwest. Then it happened, The Legend of Boggy Creek was released to theaters and was showing in Paris, Texas … only about 100 miles west of Fouke. In a matter of weeks Joe visited Fouke and for years proudly displayed the Fouke Monster bumper sticker on his truck. As the years passed Joe’s interest in unknown creatures continued to grow. He was known to always carry a camera and was not shy about asking questions when someone mentioned creatures. He also developed a keen eye for both photo and video hoaxes. Being a fan of Art Bell’s “Dreamland” and “Coast to Coast AM” radio shows was also an influence. Learning from both experts and frauds on the radio shows was great entertainment. Mountain Monsters, The Walking Dead, Finding Bigfoot, Monsters and Mysteries are all favorite shows on television these days. Joe is currently producing a film about a Bigfoot creature called “The Powderly Prowler”. It’s a fictional story about a creature terrorizing a small rural community in Texas. Which happens to be where Joe grew up. “We are a bunch of amateurs who have a dream to create our own movie. We have a script, our camera and a little experience editing video. Regardless of the outcome we are sure to have a lot of fun. As a kid growing up in Powderly, Texas, I heard and saw a lot of creepy stuff I’d like to share with others. I do believe there is a creature out there but have not seen it myself.” Currently you will find Joe teaching computer applications and video broadcasting in a local Jr High School.
