A member of the Oklahoma state House of Representatives named Justin Humphrey just introduced a bill to create an official Bigfoot hunting season. And, it’s not a joke. He wants the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission to, quote, “set annual season dates and create any necessary specific hunting licenses and fees.” The wildlife commission isn’t hot on the idea, though. A spokesperson said, quote, “Here at the department, we use science to make management decisions, and we do not recognize Bigfoot as a wildlife species.” If the bill passes, it would take effect on November 1st. Humphrey comes from a region in southeast Oklahoma that’s known for its Bigfoot sightings, and even holds an annual Bigfoot festival.
