I was reading up on some hunting and fishing articles on a newspaper (LSONews.com) Lone Star Outdoor News, a May 11, 2012 page 7 and the title of the article read “Bigfoot legal to hunt in Texas”.
It was short and sweet, ” Bigfoot legal to hunt in Texas . Apparently, hunters in Texas can shoot “Bigfoot” if they see him. As reported by the Outdoor Hub, John Lloyd Scharf sent a letter to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department asking if it is legal to kill a sasquatch in the state if a hunter comes across one of the animals. Bigfoot is not listed as a game animal in Texas, thus, according to TPWD Chief of Staff Lt. David Sinclar, the animal can be legally hunted in Texas. Sinclair responded to Scharf by saying, “the statue you site (Section 61.021 ) refers only to game birds, game animals, fish, marine animals or other aquatic life. Generally speaking, other nongame wildlife is listed in Chapter 67 and Chapter 68…An exotic animal is an animal that is non-indigenous to Texas. Unless the exotic is an endangered species then exotics may be hunted on private property with landowner consent.” Bigfoot is said to roam the deep woods of the Pacific Northwest, but said if any Lone Star Outdoor News readers happen to harvest one, please send a photo for our Heroes Section. -Staff report ”
