An Oklahoma lawmaker has pitched a bill to create a bona fide Bigfoot hunting season. On Wednesday, Rep. Justin Humphrey introduced House Bill 1648, urging the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission to establish a “big foot hunting season.” It is a real bill! The Commission shall set annual season dates and create any necessary specific hunting licenses and fees.
Real or not, there may be a lack of support from the Department of Wildlife Conservation. Micah Holmes, Assistant Chief of the Information and Education Division at the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation says, “Here at the department, we use science to make management decisions, and we do not recognize Bigfoot as a wildlife species in Oklahoma.”
