Hunters in New Mexico Report Bizarre Close Encounter Experience

In a truly bizarre story out of New Mexico, two men claim that they had a close encounter with what may have been a UFO resembling a circus tent and its alien occupants during a recent hunting trip. Josh Brinkley and Daniel Lucero told the Santa Fe New Mexican that their puzzling experience occurred over Labor Day weekend on a mountain known as Cerro de la Olla near Taos. The duo had been camping at the site for the start of bow hunting season with the hopes of bagging some elk, but they wound up coming home with a far more fantastic story to tell.

The weirdness began on the morning of September 1st when the two men were on opposite sides of a field waiting for elk to emerge from the nearby tree line. According to Brinkley, he grew bored with this tactic after about three hours and chose to start hiking through the woods in search of the animals and eventually wound up at the top of the mountain. It was there that he allegedly spotted what initially appeared to be two people "standing side by side, staring right at me" about 35 feet away.

Brinkley walked across the field between them with the intention of speaking to the two strangers, but when he briefly looked away to maneuver around a bush, they had vanished. Looking back on the encounter, the bow hunter recognized that there was something odd about the duo. "The shape that would be like their heads, it looked like they had huge hoods on," he recalled, "looked like two ribbons coming off either side to a point at the top and bottom ... in the middle of the oval was just gray."

The hunters' trip took an even stranger turn the following afternoon when Brinkley and Lucero stumbled upon what they described as a massive 'circus tent' that vanished moments after they both saw it. More on this very weird story at the Coast to Coast AM website.
