What they will find out is how many bears are in Oklahoma that people think are Big Foot. There is also a very good chance that they will end up with a few dead humans. There is no chance that anybody will bag a Big Foot because nobody has ever proven any of them are real.

I think this is one of those tongue-in-cheek bills.

It says that he wants to do it for Tourism purposes and that he does not want to kill BF, only trap them. I think this is not clearly thought out and will only confuse the situation. I suggest that laws are needed as to what BF is and where he sits within the law - as a human or an animal?

Quote:
Humphrey said he doesn’t want people to actually kill Bigfoot, so he will be working with the state wildlife and tourism departments to craft final language for his bill that specifies only the trapping of Bigfoot. He also hopes to secure at least a $25,000 bounty for the first person to trap the creature.

I can imagine many people going to go out in the woods trying to prove how macho they are. If we were BF with people after us trying to trap us, what will we do. This issue does not end well for either party.

Of course, if there are no Bigfoot then there will be no problem.

I cannot remember if Ive ever ask you this or not...how do you explain all the historical accounts coming directly from the different Native American tribes, (where they talk about the existence of sasquatch like beings who live in the forest)?


I just posted a thread about this, I found it on the BFRO site, it lists all the native american tribes by name and goes in depth talking about these 'big hairy giants', its very interesting reading.



Surely you are not suggesting this many Native American tribes have 'misidentified' bears...right?

I saw your thread and it starts out with describing the Native American BF as about 'normal size". I did not feel there was any reason to comment. It could have been the misidentification of an European settler with a lot of hair or just about any person they were not familiar with. Stories about mystic armor are to be taken as a grain of salt. They are good campfire stories and nothing else.

My dad grew up in the north east corner of Oklahoma. Not far from the Neosho River.


One day, he and a buddy were hiking/exploring in the area. They new the area fairly well, having hiked in the area many times before.


On this particular day, they separated, agreeing to meet up later. So my dad is walking along a bluff over looking the river, and he sees a figure knelt down on the river bank. He figures his friend, so he calls out his friend's name and waves.


The figure looks up, and then stands up, and my dad realizes it's not his friend, and doesn't even look human. The figure looks up at my dad for a minute or so, and then shambles off.


My dad would always say "I don't know what it was I saw, but it wasn't my friend, and it wasn't a person." And it spooked my dad a little.

Interesting...Did he ever describe what it looked like?

I took all the different tribes accounts into consideration, looked for similarities, its pretty easy to see they were referring something that was not human, but it was still something they were used to seeing regularly, (they were familiar with the Sasquatches hunting methods, what area they lived in,etc).

I can just imagine a load of unshaven country people, muttering and grumbling, (totally unintelligible), while caged.
