"The Washington state Brewer has agreed to pay $25,000 a year for the next four decades to anyone who can reel in a live, unharmed Bigfoot."

I wonder what lb test line they'd recommend?

Yeah, I'm glad they asked for an unharmed specimen. Thinking about the possible 5'11 or 6'1 "bigfoot" claims. You know us wacky Americans!

"The 2011 Survey revealed that over 90 million U.S. residents 16 years old and older participated in wildlife-related recreation. During that year, 33.1 million people fished, 13.7 million hunted," http://www.census.go...s/fhw11-nat.pdf

"And the Council's most recent statistics show that while roughly 100 people die nationwide in hunting accidents each year, more than 1,500 die in swimming-related incidents"

Just a measly one million? Pffft, can probably get one hundred million from the scientific community.

Pass!

So, if I show up with a dead one they won't pay, huh?

And they don't pay a million, they make payments to you over forty years. Odds are I won't live that long.

Great Advertising bang for the buck. I agree with Hilander, I hold out for more.

I have to agree, the cynical side of me is saying this is great free advertising for them, and then they toss in the more difficult task of taking one alive to claim the prize.

Anyone ever tasted Olympia Beer? It's...........................interesting.

So we now have $1m for Big Foot, and $100K for a UFO. Part of me really digs this as what better motivator then money. Talk is cheap so maybe these rewards will finally answer certain questions once and for all.

Seriously looking forward to how these "bounties" will play out and effect these entertaining mysteries.

It would be funny to get a large group of people together in the woods with way too much beer and film the drunken search for the elusive creature. I would do it but Olympia is weak pis beer. Maybe if Mac n Jacks or Pyramid was sponsoring the event.

I'm always amused at these money offerings for Bigfoot because as far as I know, no one has ever successfully collected them.

I wonder if people are actually out in the woods right now thinking to themselves, "Welp, I'm gonna get that Bigfoot and get my million dollars!"

Yeah, that's chump change. Or would that be "chimp change"

Any serious scientific expedition to detect and safely capture alive a Bigfoot, just in itself, would take at least 1 million dollars.

And may show up with zero results on the first, second, etc... tries.

I'm not (necessarily)against the idea of Bigfoot existing, mind you, I just don't think it's financially feasable to attempt a live capture.

Oh I don't know. A tranq gun would do the trick. A trap of some sort.

It's a wise advertising gimmick for them. They know there will not be a pay out.

It was pretty good, on the West Coast, in the '60s. It didn't travel at all well to Southeast Asia.

Who knows? Maybe Bigfoot loves beer too? :D

Some of these contests are amusing to see especially mock contests like this one. I doubt Olympia Beer can do what has eluded serious science.

Since the company offering the prize knows full well that Bigfoot is just a fictitious beast could one not fictitiously capture it and claim the prize?

OMG! They still make Olympia beer?

I'm a native Washingtonian, and remember it back to the 1960s. My Dad used to enjoy a glass of Olympia beer on occasion.

By the 1990s, I no longer heard of it. The brewery was in Tumwater, Washington near Olympia. The artesian wells were inside locked, concrete bunkers scattered all over the golf course next to the Olympia brewery.

Olympia Beer was proud of its artesian wells, because they provided particularly pure water for making beer. For a while, Olympia Beer even referenced mythical creatures called "Artesians" in their marketing.

Spent the summer of 1971 in a trailer park overlooking the golf course. Expanded my vocabulary by listening to the curses of the golfers when their ball hit one of those concrete bunkers! LOL

It's okay beer. The typical weak, American brew without much flavor; same as Budweiser or Keystone.

A million bucks for Bigfoot, huh?

Seems like a steal.

I don't believe that Bigfoot exists, but plenty of people are making a living off the fable with documentaries, books, T-shirts, annual events in their hometown, etc.

What's next Olympia? A reward for Artesians? LOL

OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY

OVERVIEW: $1 Million Search For Bigfoot (the “Contest”) begins on April 1, 2013 and ends March 31, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) (the “Contest Period”). The Contest provides eligible individuals the opportunity to search for Bigfoot and should an individual find “irrefutable evidence” of Bigfoot’s existence in compliance with these Official Rules, he/she could win $1 million dollars, as described below. The Contest is sponsored by Pabst Brewing Co., 10635 Santa Monica Blvd. #350, Los Angeles, CA 90025 (“Sponsor”). By participating in the Contest, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor and/or the “Judging Panel” (as defined below) as applicable, which shall be final and binding in all respects.

ELIGIBILITY: The Contest is open only to legal U.S. residents who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older. Employees, officers, and directors of Sponsor, The Falcon Project, the “Judging Panel” (as that term is defined below), their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies and all other individuals directly related to the administration of the Contest (collectively, the “Contest Entities”), and wholesalers, suppliers, distributors and retailers of alcoholic beverage licensees (collectively, “Licensees”) and immediate family members and/or those living in the same household of the Contest Entities and Licensees are not eligible to participate. Contest is void where prohibited by law.

HOW IT WORKS:

If an eligible individual believes that he/she has found irrefutable evidence of Bigfoot in accordance with these Official Rules during the Contest Period, he/she must visit the website at www.OlympiaBigfoot.com (the “Website”) during the Contest Period, click on “Submit Capture Report,” complete the registration information required, provide a brief description of the evidence, check that you have read and agree to these Official Rules, and click on “Submit Capture Report.” Sponsor and/or a representative of same will contact all individuals submitting a Capture Report in compliance with these Official Rules within thirty (30) days of submission. Next steps will be determined by the Sponsor and/or a representative of same and/or the Judging Panel depending on the quality and type of evidence presented. Eligible entrants must follow all instructions of Sponsor and/or its representative in their entirety in order to have their evidence considered for the Prize. In the event an eligible entrant does not comply with the instructions of the Sponsor and/or its representative as directed, such eligible entrant will be disqualified.

The evidence required to qualify for a prize claim must be such as to satisfy a panel comprised of three (3) independent experts (the “Judging Panel”) as to the irrefutable existence of Bigfoot at some time during the period beginning January 1, 1989 through March 31, 2014. The Sponsor has the sole right to select the persons that will act as the Judging Panel. The Judging Panel’s decisions are final and binding as to all determinations made in relation to this Contest and the evaluation of all evidence. The Sponsor and/or Judging Panel may ask any person submitting a claim to send his/her samples and/or evidence to an independent third party selected by the Judging Panel and/or Sponsor for evaluation and/or testing. Such evaluation/testing shall be at the sole expense of the individual submitting such evidence, and Sponsor and/or Judging Panel may require any such expense to be paid in advance of such evaluation/testing being conducted. If any person submitting evidence refuses or fails to pay any such expense, their entry will be rejected and disqualified.

For purposes of this Contest, “Bigfoot” refers to a previously undiscovered species of upright, bipedal hominid, native to North America existing contemporaneously with the Contest Period or the twenty-five (25) year period immediately prior to the Contest Period. There is no set type or amount of evidence required to establish proof for purposes of this Contest other than that all evidence presented must satisfy the Judging Panel. Evidence may include, but is not limited to DNA Evidence. DNA Evidence may include hair, blood, tissue or saliva that proves the DNA sequence of the donor shows that said donor resides in the primate evolutionary family tree, among other apes or hominids, but does not have the same genetic markers and DNA sequence as any known species. Evidence may also include “Visual Proof” of a live physical body. Physical remains may be considered as evidence provided that it can be conclusively demonstrated that the date of death pre-dated the Contest Period. Visual Proof shall not include footprints, bone fragments, inconclusive skeletal remains, or any other non-definitive evidence of the existence of Bigfoot. Any photo or video taken with photographic or video equipment is not sufficient to qualify as evidence in and of itself for consideration in the Contest, but may be considered as supporting evidence.

NO HARM SHOULD BE DONE TO BIGFOOT OR ANY LIVING CREATURE AS A RESULT OF PARTICIPATION IN THIS CONTEST. ANY EVIDENCE OF SUCH ACTIVITY SHALL LEAD TO DISQUALIFICATION FROM THE CONTEST AND NOTIFICATION TO THE PROPER LEGAL AUTHORITIES.

PUBLICITY RELEASE: By participating in the Contest, in addition to any other grants which may be granted in any other agreement entered into between Sponsor and any participant in or winner of the Contest, each participant irrevocably grants the Contest Entities and their respective successors, assigns and licensees, the right to use such participant’s name, likeness, and biographical information and any photos that may be submitted to the Website, in any and all media for any purpose, including without limitation, advertising and promotional purposes and hereby release the Contest Entities from any liability with respect thereto.

The Prize consists of $1,000,00. The Prize will be awarded in the form of an annuity paid out as $25,000 per year for forty (40) years. The Prize will solely be awarded in the name of the individual who initially submits a Capture Report in accordance with these Official Rules. Sponsor is not responsible for any disputes regarding the rightful recipient of the Prize.

Any potential prize winner must execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”).

Additionally, any Prize winner must submit to and pass in a conclusive manner, a polygraph examination as a condition precedent to receiving any Prize. Required parties must sign a normal and customary waiver as required by the polygraph examiner and must present the conclusive results of the polygraph examination to Judging Panel no later than thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the Contest Period.
