    It’s a hoax, there’s no evidence there was any treasure to be found

  4. theKoalaJamesASMR on October 23, 2020 at 2:14 pm

    Congratulations to the person that found it. I don’t need to know who. But it would be kinda nice to know how he figured it out. How long did he search. And it would be cool to see a pic. May he enjoy his wonderful find!

  10. NVG 2022 on October 23, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    "Under a canopy of stars in the lush forested vegetation if the rocky mountains"

    I’m more interested in the location than the treasure or the one who found it.

  11. casper2yall on October 23, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    I don’t believe there ever was treasure hidden.. why would he not name the person that found it, or why not tell us where is was found.. I heard last week he passed away, Rip Forrest Fin your story almost got me out there searching..

  12. Nick Brandon on October 23, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    So there is no proof it’s actually real? Wtf. Could he of not just said someone found it because he’s realizing people are dying.

  13. soulseeker aka sandy wolf on October 23, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    I think its BS not to at least solve the poem and tell us were the treasure was hidden heck at least tell us what state???

  14. Edward Mcteer on October 23, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Avid follower of Fenns treasure..and either he lied or treasure not found in Wyoming. The closest border to him is Cheyenne Wyoming. 7 hours 15 minutes…one way from Santa fe…
    He said he did it in one afternoon and 2 trips to car.
    How fast can this guy drive?
    Dont believe me? Look it up..
    Headline reads
    The Treasure is Not Under Water and was Hidden in Two Trips / One Afternoon

    About the Vallecitos Mountain Retreat, that "special place in the forest north of Santa Fe":  Here is a quote from an article in the New Mexico Magazine in 2015 by Don J Usner:  ". . . . .While Mudd was writing and working at the ranch [now the Vallecitos Mountain Retreat Center] and running his environmental organization. he met the man who would ultimately transform the ranch into a retreat center.  Mudd recalls that Grove Burnett, a newly minted environmental lawyer, simply walked into his office in 1971 and offered to help Mudd’s organization.  Mudd hired him, and Burnett, along with his wife at the time, Linda Velarde, began to spend time at the ranch with their two children.  It became a haven for both families.  – – – – –  When in 1992, Mudd found himself in financial difficulties, he sold the ranch to Burnett and Velarde and TWO FRIENDS (philanthropists who wanted to REMAIN ANONYMOUS), who created a nonprofit corporation, assembled a board of directors, and set out to realize their vision for the property.  – – – – – "We were clear from the beginning that we wanted to make a refuge and retreat center for meditation", says Burnett, the founding teacher at the Vallecitos Mountain Retreat, as it was initially called.  "Basically, we wanted to make it a refuge for people, too.."  – – – –  Burnett says that as the board began to formulate a plan, they kept coming back to the words of Henry David Thoreau, who in 1854 wrote, "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."  – – – –  "Those words were the cornerstone of our philosophy", Burnett says.  "We wanted to create a sanctuary for people to take refuge.  It was as simple as that.  That was our guiding principle, and it has remained so for the last 25 years."  – – – –  In 1994 the first retreat, for environmental leaders from around the country, was led by the renowned mediation teacher, Joseph Goldstein, who was also on the founding board of directors.  It was Goldstein who recommended that the board steer clear of making Vallecitos a Buddhist center.  They heeded his counsel, and the refuge remains rooted in teaching dharma mediation– but as secular, mindfulness training."       – – – – – –

    Someone is trying to trick MR Forrest Fenn to reveal his Treasure Location Treasure is sill there anyone can photoshop any photos these days like if you agree with me

  22. Archie Bunker on October 23, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    Want to know who found it? Just call the IRS and report that someone made a couple of million $ and is not paying taxes on it. Investigators will visit Forrest Fenn and make him hand over the info he has on the "finder" or just charge him with aiding and abetting a criminal.

  23. Menickc on October 23, 2020 at 2:31 pm

    I’m watching Josh Gates looking for the treasure on one of his shows right now and it’s crazy that it was found just a couple months ago

  24. Advilll on October 23, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    I was talking hoping I’d have a shot one day

  25. The Owl's Eye on October 23, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    RIP Forrest Fenn 1930 – 2020

  26. Great U.S. Treasure Hunt on October 23, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Turns out you had to pay attention to the numbers in the poem and ignore the words.

  27. L B on October 23, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    Biggest hoax in the last 15 years. Unidentified man. Lol

  28. Solar Flare on October 23, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Skippy had an old car with no top; it had one big seat in the front and that’s all. One day, when a buffalo wandered out of (yell)ow STONE Park and started tearing up fences, Donnie Joe thought we should go out and round it up.

    When George Frison was 11 years old he had his first, and most unforgettable, incident with a bison bull in a state park near Thermopolis, about 50 miles (80 km) from his home ranch, when ten loose bison wandered from the park, and Frison was able to secure permission to assist local cowhands to escort the bison back to the park. A young bison bull that created too much confusion among the other bison was left behind. Frison found the bison bull grazing a few days later and decided to outrun the bull on horseback. After both Frison and the bison cleared two fences, the bull stopped at the third fence, turned 180 degrees and decided to charge. Frison soon learned how an awkward and docile bison could soon be a danger, as both Frison and his horse toppled to the ground when the bull passed between the horse’s legs. However, all three managed to sustain no injury (Frison 2004).

    Lost in some of the remembrances of Forrest is his generosity. Forrest used his chase not for personal profit, but supported a local independent bookseller and raised tens of thousands of dollars for cancer victims. He was a benefactor and donated artifacts from his personal collection over the years to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, on whose board he served for several years. Despite his years of disagreements with academics over the subject of archaeology, he supported and served on the board of the George C. Frison Institute at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Wyoming. Dr. Frison passed away the very same day as Forrest.

    Now someone just needs to find the Tomar emeralds.

  30. Bryan Tomoya on October 23, 2020 at 2:40 pm


  31. Gouri Nanda on October 23, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    I have a doubt did the treasure chest find really,,,🧐

  32. Moon Spirit on October 23, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    SO, Shane and Ryan were probably so close ARGHH

  33. Rick G on October 23, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    This what I would do if I ever won the lottery or any other large amount of money

  34. Lisa Beam on October 23, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    My solve was in Wyoming, but not in Yellowstone. I wonder where though in WY! Hope we will all know someday! The Tetons are beautiful….

  35. Brenda B on October 23, 2020 at 2:46 pm

    I think this whole thing was fake in the end. They didn’t even reveal the location or the person who found it? Fenn either never hid the treasure or went and took it back himself because he knew that his time was running out.

  36. Hush Whisper on October 23, 2020 at 2:46 pm

    Please, may I share something special with you?
    I sat at my computer in 2010 and prayed to God to show me where His Eden was located.
    *Look what I found within 15 minutes of searching Google Earth*

  37. Paul D. on October 23, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    So some might say the family has found the real treasure…namely love.

  38. DirtRat 702 on October 23, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    Or maybe nothing was ever hidden all, nothing proves other wise

  39. Selene Nazaret Capará on October 23, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    so how long did he keep the treasure hidden??

  40. Jay Dizzle on October 23, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    now we gotta find the Tomar Emeralds

  41. U.S. Militia on October 23, 2020 at 2:56 pm

    They’re not even gonna tell where it was found?

  42. steve johnson on October 23, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    He recovered the treasure himself

  43. Repent And Be Baptized In Water on October 23, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    I don’t look for it, but the clues to me sounded like it was around Thermopolis, Wyoming where the warm water runs into the cold water. There is a river that runs thru town that’s 90 plus degrees year around.

  44. SourKandyKat on October 23, 2020 at 2:59 pm

    At least we know where the Tomar Emeralds aren’t

  45. Aaron Klingensmith on October 23, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    Remains undiscovered for 10 years, it finally found and the Fenn dies a month later ? He told someone where it was !!!!

  46. lorelei whitcombe on October 23, 2020 at 3:01 pm

    Exact location needed.

  47. Adeline Mills on October 23, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    Absolute mad lad

  48. Michael Byfield on October 23, 2020 at 3:03 pm

    Revealing the location where fenn hid the treasure does not compromise the privacy of the hunter, i scoured the poem several times i want to know where it was found

  49. The Notorious N.O.E. on October 23, 2020 at 3:03 pm

    He doesn’t have to tell us who found it but at least tell us where it was hidden all this time

  50. Abdi Ali on October 23, 2020 at 3:05 pm

    Not to mention probably feels guilty that people died so it’s best he called it off n not make him public enemy
