Do you believe in Bigfoot? Have you ever had a Bigfoot sighting? If you saw him/her/it, what would you do? One lawmaker thinks Bigfoot should be hunted, according to Huffington Post.

Oklahoma State Rep. Justin Humphrey has introduced a bill that would establish a ‘Bigfoot hunting season’ in the Sooner State. He represents Oklahoma’s 19th District, a region famous for Bigfoot sightings and home to the annual Bigfoot Festival and Conference.

The Republican makes it clear that he’s not advocating shooting or killing Sasquatch, but his proposal would include a $25,000 bounty for someone who traps the beast. Still, Humphrey may have trouble getting his bill passed. Oklahoma’s Department of Wildlife Conservation says they “do not recognize Bigfoot as a wildlife species in Oklahoma.”

I don’t know why there would need to be an official hunting “season.” Like many, I’d like to see at least one clear photo of the elusive creature. What difference does it make when it happens?

By the way, the town of Marion, North Carolina hosts the WNC Bigfoot Festival every year. The 2021 edition is scheduled for September 17th and 18th.
