“OKLAHOMA CITY — A state lawmaker invited the world to participate in the search for Bigfoot in southeastern Oklahoma by offering a $3 million bounty for the ever-elusive creature. 

While on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday, state Rep. J.J. Humphrey said that a television show about Bigfoot is being shot in Oklahoma. He also said there is a $3 million bounty to catch Bigfoot.

To collect the reward, however, Bigfoot must be unharmed, and the capture must be live and humane.

“We don’t hunt Bigfoot. Nobody wants to harm Bigfoot. We’re going to do a live, humane capture of Bigfoot,” Humphrey said. “We’re extending this beyond just our region and throughout the state. We’re wanting the whole world to come to southeastern Oklahoma, to the state of Oklahoma and get involved in our bounty – Oklahoma bounty, Bigfoot bounty. So, we’re excited to invite the whole world to come and participate.”

Earlier during the 2021 Oklahoma legislative session, Humphrey filed a shell bill to create a Bigfoot hunting season in the Sooner State. Under House Bill 1648, the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission would draft rules for the season, annual dates and create any necessary hunting licenses and fees.

“I actually filed a shell bill. I didn’t even file it as a real bill to start a season on Bigfoot,” Humphrey said Wednesday. “And who knew that that would go international and that we would gain so much attention? I did plan on trying to get a little attention for a festival in Honobai, Oklahoma, which is where everyone knows where Bigfoot lives…”
