Yowie Hunter Tramps USA

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 14th, 2007

Yes, can you believe it, after all the friendship Americans have shown to those from Oz, word now reaches Cryptomundo that a Yowie hunter is tramping the US*?

Anomalist Books has made this breaking news announcement in a press release today:

Tony Healy, the co-author of The Yowie: In Search of Australia’s Bigfoot, is touring the U.S. through the first of November 2007, and is available for interviews and lecture appearances. He will be speaking at the 19th Annual Bigfoot Conference Bigfoot Expo at the Salt Fork State Park Lodge in Guernsey County, Ohio on May 19th, 2007. Be sure to catch Tony while he’s in the U.S. To contact Tony, email him via AB here.“Famed Yowie Hunter Tours the US”

*For those that don’t know, “tramping” (“hiking/camping/backpacking”) is a common occurrence in “Oz” (Australia and loosely New Zealand).

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Salt Fork Conference is always an informative meeting. I’m sure Tony will add to the long list of distinguished speakers, in the past including the famous Loren Coleman!

  2. DWA responds:

    Actually, having done it in both places, “tramping” isn’t so much the Oz as the NZ term.

    In Oz it’s called bushwalking.

    (American students call it backpacking when you take a daypack on a train in Europe. Something needs to be done about that, IMHO.)

  3. drjon responds:

    Actually, I think a better Ozzie translation of “tramping” would be “going walkabout”.

    Still waiting for a Brisbane store to stock The Yowie: In Search of Australia’s Bigfoot…

  5. Hawkeye responds:
