The Thrill of the Chase Treasure Comments

fenn's treasureSince the release of The Thrill of the Chase in the fall of 2010, Forrest Fenn has made quite a few comments concerning the hunt for his hidden treasure.  This page is an attempt to gather some of the most notable remarks together.  It will be similar to Forrest Fenn Treasure Facts, as it shares statements made by only Fenn and not hearsay.  However, how searchers receive and utilize the comments towards the Chase may vary.

Mostly, the comments hold advice on how to solve The Thrill of the Chase Poem.  (For myself, I like reading over them every now and again to help keep me on track.  I will add to the page as time goes on)


“Here is what I would do. Read my book in a normal manner. Then read the poem over and over and over, slowly – thinking.  Then read my book again, this time looking for subtle hints that will help solve the clues.” (Clubthrifty article)  (the book referred is The Thrill of the Chase)


“It seems logical to me that a deep thinking treasure searcher could use logic to determine an important clue to the location of the treasure. Is someone doing that now and I don’t know it? It’s not what they say on the blogs that may be significant, it’s what they whisper.”  (Dal’s Blog/Scrapbook)


“Some searchers overrate the complexity of the search. Knowing about head pressures, foot pounds, acre feet, bible verses, Latin, cubic inches, icons, fonts, charts, graphs, formulas, curved lines, magnetic variation, codes, depth meters, riddles, drones or ciphers, will not assist anyone to the treasure location, although those things have been offered as positive solutions. Excellent research materials are TTOTC, Google Earth, and/or a good map.” (Dal’s Blog/ Scrapbook)


“The Clues should be followed in order.” (Questions with Fenn)


“The most common mistake that I see searchers make is that they underestimate the importance of the first clue. If you don’t have that one nailed down you might as well stay home and play Canasta.” (Questions with Fenn)


“The person who finds the treasure will have studied the poem over and over, and thought, and analyzed and moved with confidence. Nothing about it will be accidental.” (Six Questions)


“If a person reads the poem over and over…and are able to decipher the first few clues in the poem, they can find the treasure chest. It may not be easy, but it certainly isn’t impossible. I could go right straight to it.” (Collected Works video)


“All that will be needed are the clues, some resolve, a little imagination………..” (dust jacket of The Thrill of the Chase)


“… the clues in the book and thread a tract through the wiles of nature and circumstance to the treasure.  If you can find it, you can have it.  I warned the path would not be direct for those who had no certainty of the location beforehand, but sure for the one who did.” (Flap on map in Too Far to Walk)


“Nobody is going to happen on that treasure chest. You’re gonna have to figure out the clues in the poem and go to it.” (Moby Dickens video, Nov.2, 2013)


“The treasure chest, I’ve said, is in a very special place to me….” (Moby Dickens)

    FF hid the TC in 2010 but from this site I learned the following:

    1.*I could have written the poem before I hid the treasure chest, but I didn’t. f (Posted October 14th, 2016)
    2. *Each word in the poem is deliberate. Forrest has said it took him 15 years to write it and he felt like an architect when doing so.

    how can both be true? he had to write the poem before he hid the TC if it took him 15 yrs to write it. am I missing something?
