Oklahoma Lawmaker Files Bill to Establish Bigfoot Hunting Season


A member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives has filed a bill that calls for the establishment of a Bigfoot hunting season in the state. The audacious idea is reportedly the brainchild of Rep. Justin Humphrey, who reportedly put forward the proposal on Wednesday. The fairly succinct resolution, which can be read here, states that "The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission shall promulgate rules establishing a big foot [sic] hunting season. The Commission shall set annual season dates and create any necessary specific hunting licenses and fees."

It remains to be seen whether or not the bill will wind up receiving a vote when the Oklahoma legislature meets on February 1st as, similar to what happened with a Washington state bill aimed at putting Sasquatch on license plates, it could get stuck in the bureaucratic process. Be that as it may, should be resolution pass, it would go into effect on November 1st, 2021. As one might imagine, response to the bill has been mixed with some residents considering it an embarrassing waste of time and others recognizing it as a clever joke which could generate some tax dollars by way of people buying the novelty Bigfoot hunting licenses.
