Bill aims to establish 'Bigfoot hunting season'

Would you take part in a literal Bigfoot hunt ? Image Credit: YouTube / CEN
An Oklahoma lawmaker is hoping to establish an official hunting season in the state for the enigmatic cryptid.
While there are many people who are skeptical about the existence of an unknown species of large hairy biped roaming the forests of North America, Rep. Justin Humphrey certainly isn't one of them.

Humphrey, who represents a southeastern district of Oklahoma famous for its Bigfoot sightings, has introduced a new bill which urges the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission to establish a bona fide Bigfoot hunting season during which the killing of the cryptid would be totally legal.

If the bill passes, it will come into effect at the beginning of November.

"The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission shall promulgate rules establishing a Bigfoot hunting season," the bill states. "The Commission shall set annual season dates and create any necessary specific hunting licenses and fees."
As you might expect however, establishing such a bill is going to take some persuasion.

"It is a real bill, yes," department official Micah Holmes told Fox News.

"Here at the department, we use science to make management decisions, and we do not recognize Bigfoot as a wildlife species in Oklahoma."

As things stand, it seems highly unlikely that the bill will actually pass.

Exactly why Humphrey thought it would be a good idea remains unclear.

But you can bet when you bag one of those things, you're going to be really famous. Then you'll be attacked by the Twitter mob for killing poor bigfoot. We didn't even learn his name.

Yea they probably would do it to limit the time people are running around in the woods with guns. Otherwise they could be out there year around doing it.

Or maybe they passed the bill as a "just in case " kind of thing. No liabilities you know.

This is wrong on SOOOOO many levels! First off, you don't shoot things that you can't identify. We don't know what or even if Bigfoot exists and do know that they are at the least closer to human than say a gorilla if they are real. This is like having a hunting season for endangered species. Let's try and kill off the whooping cranes too. Personally I don't see sending idiots out to hunt and shoot two legged humanoid shaped things that look a lot like a big man with a heavy beard and a fur coat on. I would wear head to toe blaze orange to go get my mail if I lived out in the country during Bi... [More]

Agree with you on task and purpose for hunting. There is no bigfoot so there's nothing really to worry about outside of the yay-hoo jokesters who might get shot. I think your statement about ancestors killing off all other branches of honinids is not accurate at all.  Humans (Man as you say) are killers, like almost every other living creature on this planet.

Bigfoot has been reported in every state in the USA and every province in Canada.   Also in almost every country on the planet.
