Brian Hulan.jpg
Brian Hulan is from Oklahoma City, Ok and has been investigating Bigfoot since 2016. He is one of the founding members of the group Southern Bigfoot Alliance. He also co-hosts a podcast with his research partner Shane Church called the Cryptoholics Show. In 2018 Brian spent 62 nights in remote SE Oklahoma where he was eventually rewarded with his face to face sighting. His approach to sharing evidence and locations may seem unorthodox but has paid dividends in what he believes real investigative research is.
