Oklahoma Lawmaker Proposes Official Bigfoot Hunting Season
A hunting season for Bigfoot? One Oklahoma lawmaker has proposed just that.
Oklahoma state representative Justin Humphrey has filed legislation that would establish a Bigfoot hunting season in the state. The bill would work with the Oklahoma wildlife conservation division to establish the dates of the season, licensing, and fees. Humphrey is also hoping to establish a $25,000 bounty for anyone who captures the creature, adding he doesn’t want anyone to kill Bigfoot, but rather the license would specify trapping only.
Humphrey said in his statement “Establishing an actual hunting season and issuing licenses for people who want to hunt Bigfoot will just draw more people to our already beautiful part of the state. It will be a great way for people to enjoy our area and to have some fun.”
Bigfoot Encounters and Other Evidence of the Elusive Cryptid
Whether you consider yourself a believer or not, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of reported Bigfoot encounters, including a few from some widely recognized names. These encounters span cultures and continents and even date back to times of antiquity when natives ruled the land. Today, more than 20 percent of the U.S. population says it believes Bigfoot exists, and there’s plenty of evidence to boot.
Last year, two sightings picked up by trail cameras on Sherman Pass and SR 20 in Snoqualmie, WA caught what appears to be a large bipedal figure trekking through the snow, reigniting passionate debate about the famous cryptid.
