Man charged for hunting Bigfoot without a permit

Quote:
Matt Pruitt was leading a group expedition for The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization at the Buffalo National River Park in Arkansas in February when he and his group of 31 people were stopped by two park rangers. Pruitt was slapped with a hefty $525 fine

The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization often films expeditions as part of the Animal Planet Series, "Finding Bigfoot." Pruitt’s expedition at Buffalo National River Park was not being filmed.

Despite being fined for lack of a permit, it would have been likely that Pruitt would not have been able to obtain one.

“It’s highly unlikely that he would have gotten a permit if he applied for one," Bradford said. "It’s not normal practice to issue them for expeditions to find Bigfoot."

I cant belive people pay $500 to go with him on and expedition. I will under cut him. Anyone that wants to go on a Sasquatch expo only has to pay me $250.

Unicorns are real! We just mistakenly assume that they are land dwellers, when in reality they live in the ocean and we call them whalicorns.

SO what does he actually need - some sort of hiking permit? I assume that even if they were "hunting" Bigfoot that they didn't intend to shoot it (maybe mount it since the guys on that show seem pretty lonely)

narwhals. not unicorns. they are elephants of the sea and some can be bi-corn curious.

the "horn/tusk" is a tooth. normally their left incisor that grows out of their head. some have both incisors grow out and they have double tusks, like an elephant.

I would pay the fine with a smile and walk away with my $14975 profit.

I can't believe people would actually pay money to go on these "expeditions"
hell I can't believe people actually watch the show on tv.

A bigfoot would taste like Moose mixed with a hint of pickled pigs feet.

So exactly when does B.F. season run?
And does this mean my boyscouts will require snipe permits for their campouts? (I do at least know the season for those runs year round)

Snipe season usually overlaps dove hunting season, along with woodcock season. IIRC, Snipe season starts a week or two after Dove season-at least in Indiana.

28 ga works really well on snipe.

Dr. Wilson got screwed.
