OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma state representative filed a bill to establish a Bigfoot hunting season.

Oklahoma State Representative Justin Humphrey filed House Bill 1648 proposing the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission to establish a Bigfoot hunting season.

“Tourism is one of the biggest attractions we have in my House district,” Humphrey said. “Establishing an actual hunting season and issuing licenses for people who want to hunt Bigfoot will just draw more people to our already beautiful part of the state. It will be a great way for people to enjoy our area and to have some fun.”

The bill, which Humphrey filed in Jan. 2021, states, "The Commission shall set annual season dates and create any necessary specific hunting licenses and fees."

“Having a license and a tag would give people a way to prove they participated in the hunt,” Humphrey said. “Again, the overall goal is to get people to our area to enjoy the natural beauty and to have a great time, and if they find Bigfoot while they’re at it, well hey, that’s just an even bigger prize.”

Bigfoot, also known as "Sasquatch," is described as an ape-like creature, covered in dark hair and standing around 6-9 feet tall, that's reported to live in the forests of North America, according to Wikipedia.

Many people believe Bigfoot exists based on the number of evidence of visual sightings, photographs, video recordings, audio recordings and large footprint casts.

According to, Honobia, Oklahoma holds a, annual Bigfoot Festival and Conference allowing people to explore the appeal of Bigfoot. The conference allows researchers to share their findings at the three-day gathering in the heart of Oklahoma's Kiamichi Mountains.

The festival includes live music, arts and crafts, nature walks and fun family-friendly games. CLICK HERE for more information on the Honobia Bigfoot Festival and Conference.

According to the bill, Rep. Humphrey proposes the season would become effective November, 1, 2021.
