Skinwalker Ranch and Satan’s Butte Coincidence?

This just in from a friend who wishes to remain anonymous but is a well respected UFO Researcher!


“I just got through reading a book called “Hunt for the Skinwalker,” that is based on the para-normal case on Skinwalker Ranch (Sherman Ranch) from near Ft. Duchesne, Utah. It’s interesting in the similarities in both of the cases (Satan Butte & Skinwalker Ranch); and it’s also interesting that both cases were investigated by Robert Bigelow‘s Investigative Group from Las Vegas, NV. ?

Another interesting fact I determined is that the Satan Butte Case and the Utah Skinwalker Ranch Case lie on the same Longitude? 109.8546 and 109.8650 – Coincidence? Ley Line?

So, what happened on that fateful night when my life changed with UFO’s and Skinwalkers?

It was around 9 pm, I walked outside to check on the horses which were in the corral about 50 yards from our house. Something was spooking them! I looked across the corral and saw a misty silverish cigar shaped object hovering four feet off the ground behind the corral. The sun was setting behind me and so I could see the horses were clearly distraught. I reached back inside for my pellet gun which I kept loaded inside the door to chase off studs (the horse variety not stray men).

I looked across the corral again and all the horses were on the south side and the cigar shaped object was to the north east and hovering yet in a mist. I aimed and fired! I shot the cigar shaped object and distinctly heard a ping as the pellet hit the object. Bam just like that the object climbed and accelerated so fast that I almost did not see where it went! It shot across the yard toward the neighbors house about 100 yards away! The only way I saw where it went was through my peripheral vision and when I saw it again I took aim but it was gone around the side of their house.

Most people see flying saucers that look slightly cigar shaped and hover side to side but this was a cigar shaped object that can be pictured more like a Torpedo Cigar stood on end with the larger portion being higher in the air and the tip toward the ground. It put off an odd vapor or mist that made it hard to focus on, but it was silverish in color and distinct enough to shoot.

I went to the back of the house and looked west toward Satan‘s Butte and saw the ship that was dropping tendrils of light toward the ground. This time my wife witnessed the spectacle. We took many pictures and while the UFO was about 2 – 3 miles away it appeared perfectly in my viewfinder. My wife has excellent eyesight and while watching through our binoculars she spotted a second UFO and pointed it out. It was hovering higher than the other one and at a greater distance. Finally I was not going to be locked up in the looney bin! Two witnesses and multiple pictures all sent to Mufon and documented.

What came next amazed even me! Skinwalkers roamed Greasewood, AZ!

Hello Jeff,                                                   (Wednesday, July 28, 2010, 1057 hours)

I’ve been wanting to drop you a line, but I”ve been really busy lately. 

First, Lt. Jon Dover and I were trying to contact you back on the week of July 12th. We were working with personnel from Bigelow Aerospace (from Las Vegas) investigating the Satan Butte sight. We escorted their personnel out to the butte, so they could conduct various readings and tests. We attempted to contact you several times as they were very interested in meeting you and possibly conducting an interview with you while they were here, but that didn’t work out.
Loran would still like you to call him.
If you want more informnation on Bigelow Aerospace you can go to their website at the person I’m working with is Loran Huffman-Senior Investigator, Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies his number is wk. ph# (702) 798-0444.

Thanks, Stan….

I am glad that I waited to further contact you –


Last night a local medicine man came to the house – while I know him well in the rodeo arena through his son – he has never spoken about skinwalkers or “medicine” in the Navajo way. I digress and will weave this into the story in a bit.


The evening after heading over to Satan’s (Zions’) Butte and meeting the officers, I went to Taylor to pick up a horse and headed back to Greasewood arriving approx 11:45. As we drove down the drive to our home a skinwalker was in the driveway…I did not see it but both my wife Mary and her sister yelled at the same moment and I felt nauseous. I knew I needed to unload three horses and settle the new baby into her stall. I hit the sack about 12:30 totally shot.


I woke up about 3:30 and began to vomit and let go the other end at the same time. I was so so sick! I went out and laid on the couch and had the oddest out of body experience. It was as if I were floating over my body and watching things enter and try to tear at my soul. I was gasping for breath and yet something kept projecting a vision of me lying naked wrapped in a sheet with my hands folded across my chest dead outside on the patio. They kept saying that this was not my place not my home not where I was supposed to be – and I kept fighting and gasping for breath! Finally, my wife Mary came out of a deep slumber and found me (I do not remember any of this) and she quickly knew that she had to give me what the Navajo refer to as bitter medicine and then go and burn cedar – she also gave me my medicine pouch – the cedar, bitter medicine, and pow it hit me hard and as I was coming out of the coma (for lack of a better term) a huge snake came up in the front window and said one neighbors name in a snake hiss voice. (I took this to mean that this was the person who sent the skinwalkers) as I came out – the snake retreated and the horses went absolutely nuts…the dogs began to howl and life was again normal on the rez.


The old medicine man came and asked me if everything was okay last evening – I related my skinwalker story and he explained that someone who hated me had sent them to kill me – but not just skinwalkers – the very demons that control these things (Graham Hancock in Supernatural has an interesting explanation for this – ) I digress – when I finished telling the old medicine man my story I grew very ill again and had to run for the bathroom. Navajo’s are patient people (aside from my wife) and he waited till I came back soaked in sweat and smelling like a dead cow. He instructed me on how to deal with what the “demons had left in me – and I followed his advice and for the first time feel better today!


He and I shared stories of aliens, his mother, and donkey mutilations…he also said a sheep was mutilated and investigated by the Rangers over near Summit – of late.


He became ill and had to leave – he said whatever had affected me was affecting him. I know who sent them or who paid for them to be sent – and I know that in time he will be paid back with loss.


Interesting sidenote – Milford the Ranger said to me – you have to have strong faith or you will be killed by witchcraft here on the Rez!


Is it inter-related…one friend said he saw a buncha Ranger and Black Op vehicles around our house that Friday night? I do have strong faith and know that once again my Father saved me from the wickedness/folly of men.


with respect




PS I have seen skinwalkers before and it is terrifying…the interesting part is you can kill a skinwalker on the Navajo Rez and face no prosecution – Navajo Nation Law…ask Bill Battles my attorney in WR.

Hi Jeff,


I apologize again for the delay in responding but I’ve been tied up in work related activities and about a week behind in reading my mail.  It’s absolutely cool about the elders enjoying their backup role!  Further, it’s beyond cool as to the young elders along with the senior elder placing the 4 sealed books of Mormon on the rim and renaming the Satan Butte – Zion’s Butte!  I also prefer Zion’s Butte and congratulate them – Good Work! 


Now the mind blower is your sighting of a “Skinwalker” the night after my friends checked out Zion’s Butte.  If possible, I would certainly appreciate an overview on what occurred in your sighting.  That is extremely interesting that the event happened the night after Zion’s Butte was monitored.


Thanks so much for the update and I’ll keep you posted on any events reported that would be of interest to you, especially if anything is reported in your area.  I’ll check my mail more often, busy or not, to avoid any delays in responding.

Mornin Dominic,


The elders loved their role as back-up!


We all got together this last Tuesday (the elders day off) and hiked the whole bowl of Satan’s Butte – it is interesting that it forms a bowl inside the butte and I used my GPS to figure (approx) where the UFO came down. It would have landed or hovered in the bowl. I was thinking (line of sight) that it was further north but I was wrong – a GPS never lies…just my old eyes!


On a kind of funny note – the Mormon elders brought along a senior elder and they put four sealed books of Mormon at the highest points along the rim! They re-named Satan’s Butte – Zion’s Butte! I enjoyed it and thought it is a much better more sanctified name!


On a more ominous note – we had increased “skinwalker activity” the night after the Ranger’s checked things out on Zion’s Butte? Interesting huh? Saw one right next to the house!

I understand your curiosity and being cautious – no problem with that!  Lt. Dover and his Special Ops Rangers are cool guys and they were equally impressed with you.  Did the young elders have some excitement as backup operatives?  I think that was cool with binocs, radios and camera. 


Please let me know if you experience any further activity and I will do the same.  Also, I apologize for not responding sooner but I read your e-mail on Friday morning while checking out my wife’s laptop at Sky Harbor International waiting for our flight to Sacramento, CA for her annual family reunion.  I tried a quick response but was not fast enough to get the job done before having to board our flight.  I then tried to respond once in Sacramento but had internet issues.  Keep in touch!

Okay – so my curiosity got the best of me and I had the Mormon elders back me up and with radio, camera, binocs in hand – rode the atv out and asked them what was up! They were both totally cool – we swapped stories and it was a very interesting – thank you so much for being so cool and patient with me – I just told em I was careful and did not wanna be hauled away by men in white jackets…

MUFON – UFO Sighting Part 2

UFO 1 with Tendrils
Feds investigate Satan’s Butte

The next morning, I sent the pictures and a brief report to MUFON ( ) and was called at my home within minutes of the report hitting the net! I got a call from a lady at MUFON! – she asked if I would be willing to be interviewed that evening – I said sure – Dominic Mancini, from Phoenix interviewed me for two hours – amazing – they were intrigued by the photos. We talked and exchanged e-mails over the next couple weeks till I got word that some “Navajo Rangers” were coming out to see the site! I thought “yeah right” Dominic said 9:30 on Friday and I thought sure sure… I went down and checked (the butte being about three miles from our home) and sure enough some feds were at Satan’s Butte.

Mufon 4
Touchdown Site

They were driving “Navajo Ranger” vehicles and were very personable. They stated that they were part of a “special ops” paranormal investigation group of 16 Rangers on the Navajo Reservation. They said they did not advertise! Well, I rode up on my atv backed up by two Mormon elders, Ben Gregersen and Jason Rowe that had a two-way radio and binoculars trained on my back. I stopped some ways out and turned on the HD video on my Nikon so I could surreptitiously tape the interview. It was fascinating!I started the interview complaining about cattle and grazing since we have a large grazing permit…the Lt chuckled and said “we both know we are not here about grazing and cattle” He then told me about his “Special Ops” unit…they investigate Skinwalkers, witchcraft, paranormal, archaeology site/theft, and everything in between. They have Gen 4 night equipment, AR15’s, Sat link computers the list goes on….On an interesting side note – the next evening we had more Skinwalkers visit our home than I care to remember!

Ben Gregersen and Jason Rowe

The Mormon elders and I went out Tuesday and searched the whole site – they took along four plastic sealed Books of Mormon and planted them at the highest points around the butte and renamed the butte from Satan’s Butte to Zion’s Butte!  Now why would our government send out trained investigators to investigate? How could Skinwalkers be tied to this sighting?

MUFON – UFO Sighting in June 2010 (Part 1)

Mutual UFO Network

Beginning in June 2010, I started to notice an odd light at 9:46 in the evening and it appeared to be descending onto what is Mufon5known locally as Satan’s Butte. The local Navajo have tales about a large snake that lived on top of the butte and ancient rituals were performed around a huge fire – the snake would emerge from a hole and “wishes” were granted to the supplicants. If cows or sheep wandered into the vicinity – they were just left to the butte. Knowing this and having heard stories from local Navajo Ranchers about a craft that was seen to enter the crater formed inside Satan’s Butte, I was curious but dismissed the stories as local folklore to entertain the white rancher!
On June 2nd I rushed into the house and told my wife that I had seen something descending into Satan’s Butte. She rolled her eyes and asked when she should call the men in white jackets. I swore I saw something that appeared to be cylindrical and had flashing red lights in the middle. Two night later, I rushed into the house and told her to look out because it was descending again. She was not quick enough and missed the craft. By this time, the wife really thought I had flipped out or was drinking! I then told her that I was going to Flagstaff to Best Buy and buy a good camera so I could photograph it next time it landed. I bought a good digital Nikon! Having bought the Nikon, I waited and waited…satansbutte3
