068 – The UFO Hunter- JT Odneal
UFO’s have been igniting the hearts and imaginations of humans since the dawn of time. Have you ever had an other worldly experience? Have you ever seen something in the night sky that you just couldn’t identify? Have you seen a UFO or an unidentified aerial phenomena?
Today’s guest is JT Odneal. JT is someone who I’ve known for 10 years. He is a friend and a patient. He’s a retired rancher, a Navy veteran, a published author and poet. He is also someone who I’ve only known to speak the truth. The story we tell today has not wavered.
On a September morning in 1987, a UFO nearly crash landed on top of him. JT said it was starting to get cool out and it was time to cut firewood for the fireplace back at the ranch house, so JT and his hand Jose’ set out in the pickup to cut some oak in the back pastures at his cattle ranch in the Dragoon Mountains of Southern Arizona when it happened. In this episode, JT will finish the rest of the story, and I share my experience going back to the exact same spot.
