Oklahoma state representative filed bill to establish Bigfoot hunting season

I mean, either you believe bigfoots are real, in which case this is monstrous, or you don’t, in which case he’s being an asshole wasting everyone’s time with nothing better to do. There are no good options here.

Bigfoot isn’t real. Drunk hunters who will accidentally shoot humans and bears in the backcountry are very real.

Pro Hunter Tip: Bigfoot is fond of wearing orange vests.

I mean, they make bright orange tents that can attract wild animals because some stupid fuckers will shoot at anything that isn’t Day-Glo.

Ok, OK… I’ve got to ask: Is it because in one of the most famous (fake) movies ever, that female bigfoot is black?

But I heard Bigfoot is only vulnerable to Nerf weaponry.

You heard correctly. :smiling_imp:

Even if one believes that bigfoot is real (which, fine, cryptozoology is a thing after all), it is hard to imagine bigfoot inhabiting Oklahoma of all places.

No offense to Oklahoma; it just doesn’t seem like the right biome…at all.

Rational credences have taken a dive recently…

Yeah, there’s that whole issue, too…

“Experts” disagree:

The thing about “bigfoot” is that there’s pretty much local versions everywhere in the US at this point, except the most empty and un-vegetated parts of the country. (And probably even there, too.) Davy Crockett reported a run-in with a bigfoot in Texas. Where it spoke English and foretold the future, so clearly in American folklore it’s a magical beastie unconstrained by habitat…

Yeah, like I said, no offense to Oklahoma, but…
Okay, maybe a little offense to Oklahoma.
(I’m from Kansas; we’re allowed to make fun of Oklahoma.)

Could we just call it the Dick Cheney Law?

Because it allows hunters to shoot people they accidentally mistook for Bigfoot.

I thought it was Small Hands season

I had some family in (Southern) Oklahoma and the landscape, from my visits, seemed fairly varied and lush to me, rather unlike what I’ve seen of Kansas. On the other hand, even Kansas has its own bigfoot legends… And looking it up, the only state that doesn’t have bigfoot “sightings” is Hawaii (for obvious reasons). Even extremely unlikely places like Rhode Island, Delaware, Maine, Vermont, and Nevada have some. What would seem to be highly unlikely places like Utah, Arizona, etc. have quite a few. Plausibility doesn’t seem to enter into the equation.

Yeah, come to think of it, part of Oklahoma is in the Ozarks (Southeastern Kansas has a tiny little section that is part of the Ozarks as well), but as a proud Kansan, I simply could not pass up an opportunity to riff on Oklahoma.

Nope, it’s a big furry robot, built by some extraterrestrial species that are looking exaclty like humans.

Oh @pesco… why are you focusing on bigfeets instead instead of more important things you could be reporting on DAVID! /s

But seriously… This guy should fuck off.

Protect bigfeets!

If we don’t know whether Bigfoot is really a hominid cousin we shouldn’t be shooting, or a big hairy human we shouldn’t be shooting, or a combination of bears and alcohol (which makes it hard to tell whether it’s really another hunter or other big hairy human you shouldn’t be shooting), then it’s really premature to make it legal to kill them. Especially since they’re an obviously endangered species (assuming they’re not just bears, and I’m also opposed to shooting bears unless you’re really desperate for food or you’re really desperate not to become food.)
