Three amateur Bigfoot hunters ended up is custody after one of them accidentally shot one of his friends.

Quote

According to the Oklahoma Sheriff's Department, the three men had been attempting to hunt down the elusive hominid on Saturday night when one of them became spooked, believing he'd run in to the legendary creature, and managed to put a bullet in his friend's back instead.

This happens every hunting season in upstate NY, USA, when the reckless and irresponsible "hunter" breaks a cardinal hunting safety rule, and fires at something without being certain of what it is--and it turns out to be a hunting companion.

Now in this semi-legal, semi-real sport of "Bigfoot Hunting," that's a normally hard and fast hunting rule which may be easier to violate than respect. If you "don't know what it is," that must equate to "It's Bigfoot!" at least in certain individuals of dubious skill and prudence with firearms. "Gun control" should start with misbehavior such as this.

Don't play with guns. No serious hunter hunts big foot. Even it  was real why kill it? I hope the shooter gets serious jail tine to send a strong message. "Identify target and surrounds"

I'm not a serious hunter but I would seriously hunt bigfoot if I had time to kill.

How do you arrest all three?

I'm assuming only ONE of them shot.

The victim and the bystander get arrested for what?  (Other than being dumb)

Actually it was the shooter, his dad and his wife that were arrested. The dad was arrested for concealing evidence (threw the rifle into a pond), and the wife for lying during the police investiation (She said it was a stranger that fired the shots).

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Apparently where they were "hunting" there has never, ever been a bigfoot reported. I like what the Sheriff said.....

"To our knowledge, no Bigfoot sightings in Rogers County," Walton said. "I think our focus is career criminals and thugs, and we're going to stay focused on that and let somebody else go after Bigfoot."

They could have just used other device to capture one and do more investigations instead of actually killing it to avoid accidents just like this.  Guns are not the only solution to things.

Okay, sure. They could be trigger happy bigfoot hunters, anything is possible.  But my guess? There is a lot more to this story and bigfoot hunters spooked by (bigfoot) noises is getting the blame... for more nefarious or stupid activity.

Does anyone know if this happened at night or daylight hours?

One of the mental tests to be applied before issuing a gun permit ought to be, "Do you think Bigfoot is real."  All affirmative responses should be denied the permit on grounds of insanity.
