The decryption

"Rooster Cogburn was the answer to the clue 'so hear me all and listen good' ('now listen up and listen good')."
IMO 'Photoplay' is the answer to total interpretation.

RE: The decryption
Not sure what that means.

All the answers to clues are things of interest to Fenn. So he used: Native American chiefs, Comic book characters, Fictional Wild West characters, geographical locations in the West, characters from illustrated books, Clovis culture, old movie stars.

Fenn used the words in those answers to create the required directions. What the answers themselves are is irrelevant, apart from each being both a subject of interest to Fenn and able to provide the words he wanted to use in his list of directions.

RE: The decryption
The hints plastered all over the Scrapbooks of pictures of roosters, published emails from a searcher who had a pet rooster called 'John Wayne', references to 'coburn', 'marion' etc all were intended to be hints for the answer 'Rooster Cogburn'.

Apart from the Scrapbooks there were several other hints e.g. in Fenn's book collecting video he highlighted a book by a ‘Coburn’ illustrated by a 'Marion' with a cartoon drawn inside the front cover regarding another ‘Marion’.

Look at the decryption and you'll understand why Fenn used the words: 'Rooster Cogburn'.

RE: The decryption
@White Knight - All those so-called references to John Wayne & Rooster Cogburn help you locate the treasure ... how?

RE: The decryption
They hint to Searchers to use the answer 'Rooster Cogburn'. Look at the whole decryption on the first page of this thread. This shows how the answer 'Rooster Cogburn' together with the answers to other clues is used to obtain the directions. There are 9 clues, 9 answers to those clues, so 9 lines of directions.

RE: The decryption
The answer second from bottom of the whole decryption discussed on the first page of this thread was:

'Arrowhead for giant Mammoth'. I forgot to say what the clue was.

This was the answer to the clue: ‘your effort will be worth the cold’.

There was always bound to be a reference to Clovis culture in Fenn’s riddle. Clovis was an Ice Age culture so ‘the effort was worth the cold’ for Clovis hunters to make and use an arrowhead to hunt giant Mammoth.

RE: The decryption
The last line of the decryption on the first page of this thread shows how the answer 'Chief Little Turtle' was used - the answer to the clue ‘brave and in the wood’. The word Brave here referred to a Native American warrior.

Chief Little Turtle led the Native Americans at the ‘battle of fallen timbers’. The Native Americans fought using fallen trees as protection. Hence this ‘brave’ was located ‘in the wood’.

100%; and what would cause all of those fallen trees that protect something else?

RE: The decryption
The answer 'Chief Little Turtle' was hinted at by Fenn as were all the other answers to clues. For example, on one of Fenn's 'artifacts' videos he pointed out a figurine of what he called a 'little turtle'.

This was highlighted out of context with respect to the subject he was discussing - spannish metallic objects. The figurine of the 'little turtle' was nothing to do with those objects. So why did he point it out? - because he was giving a hint for the answer 'Chief Little Turtle'.
