In a National Park. Most likely a protected species as well.

It actually not surprising some people want gun control.

The really bothersome part is that there are people out there who believe in a big foot.

From the article:
"The legendary creature, also known as Sasquatch, is more commonly associated with America’s Pacific Northwest region but sightings have been reported all over the country."

Of course there are more sightings. There are more drugs now than ever before lado.

When are bigfeet in season? Do you need a special tag? What's the buck to doe harvest ratio? What's the limit? Can they be baited legally?

That's why you should only drink name brand Kentucky bourbon. Drinking the homemade kind, could cause you to see a multitude of things in the Kentucky back woods. :shock:

In Texas, bigfoot is an exotic. No season, no bag limit.

We don't know if Bigfoot actually exists, but if you have one in your sights, you can pull the trigger -- at least if you're in Texas.

Some places like Skamania County, Washington, have outlawed the killing of a Sasquatch, according to The UnMuseum.com, but Texas apparently has no such decree preventing the hairy creature from being hunted.

The matter came up recently when Oregon-based Bigfoot buff John Lloyd Scharf contacted Texas Parks and Wildlife officials David Sinclair to see if he might have a fighting chance of hunting a Sasquatch without getting busted.

Turns out the way the law is written suggests it's OK to turn Bigfoot into the biggest trophy that ever hung above a fireplace, according to Fox News.


One key question is whether the legendary monster can be considered exotic under the terms of the law.

“An exotic animal is an animal that is non-indigenous to Texas," Sinclair told the network. "Unless the exotic is an endangered species, then exotics may be hunted on private property with landowner consent.”
