Oklahoma Lawmaker Proposes “Bigfoot” Hunting Season… Seriously

Deer season, turkey season… Bigfoot season?

In Oklahoma, it’s on the table.

According to AP News, Oklahoma lawmaker Justin Humphrey is proposing an official Bigfoot hunting season… and he’s serious. Humphrey’s district includes the Ouachita Mountains, a headily wooded area, where an annual Bigfoot festival is held each year. The bill would only allow trapping, with a $25,000 reward for anybody that manages to capture the beast.

“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… If we get this passed, I can promise I am going to be on one of the first hunts, and I guarantee you we will have fun, and that’s what it’s all about,” he said. “That is what we are trying to promote.”

I love a good Bigfoot hunt as much as the next guy, but don’t you think this is why people hate politicians? This is at the State level, but we just went through one of the most contentious elections I’ve ever seen, more divided than ever, and we’re talking about a Bigfoot hunt? Like don’t you have more important shit to worry about?

The 19th district (his district) includes some of the poorest counties in Oklahoma… is it possible that your energy would be better spent working to improve the lives of your constituents and not hunting Bigfoot? Just a thought…

Also, doesn’t Bigfoot live in the Pacific Northwest? When’s the last time he was spotted in Oklahoma? I have so many questions…

Oh, and if you thought this is all just talk, it’s not. There’s a bill…
