Lawmaker Wants to Make a Hunting Season for Bigfoot
A lawmaker in Oklahoma wants to create a hunting season for Bigfoot, complete with licenses and tags.
But before you go and grab your Elephant Gun, this hunting season for the ‘Squatch is NOT to shoot and kill Bigfoot, just trap him.
State Representative Justin Humphrey told The Oklahoman: “We are going to trap a live Bigfoot. We are not promoting killing Bigfoot. We are promoting hunting Bigfoot, trying to find evidence of Bigfoot.”
He even wants to include a $25,000 bounty for someone who successfully traps a Bigfoot.
If the bill's passed into law, it would take effect on Nov. 1 of this year. A decision will likely be made once the Oklahoma Legislature begins sitting on February 1st.
According to the The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, there’s been 106 Sasquatch sightings in Oklahoma. The most recent sighting was last October.
According to the BFRO, Washington State has had the most Bigfoot sightings with 689. Iowa has had 76 sightings, most recently in 2017 in Chickasaw County.
