  • PETA to Bigfoot Hunters: You Shouldn't 'Shoot and Kill It' Just Because You Can

    |Myrtle Beach News Examiner ^ | February 1, 2014 | Norman Byrd
    The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are certain about one thing, even though they do not acknowledge that Bigfoot is real: It is just as unethical to kill a Sasquatch as it would be any other animal. In a report posted by the CBS Houston on Jan. 30, the animal rights activists reacted to the idea much as expected, because to members of their organization, shooting and killing a living creature, whether it be for food or sport, is an atrocity. PETA spokesperson Lindsay Rajt told The Houston Chronicle: “As an organization we do oppose hunting of...
  • '10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty' Is Latest In Bigfoot Craze

    '10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty' is latest in Bigfoot craze OK, enough with the grainy footage, the first-person accounts and questionable evidence. Spike TV is looking to get to the bottom of this whole Bigfoot mystery once and for all with its next reality competition series, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty." Not surprisingly, the series, which premieres Jan. 10, hasn't attracted a whole lot of what you would call studious, academic types. Instead, you get a whole lot of angry, sexist rednecks yelling at each other in the woods. What better way to attract a notoriously camera-shy, quite probably mythical...
  • 1959 (State Department) Memo Lists Government Regulations for Yeti Hunting. Really.

    1959 memo lists government regulations for Yeti hunting. Really. If you're planning to hit the Himalayas in search of an Abominable Snowman, you better be ready to do things by the book. At least, that'd be the case if you were conducting your search in 1959. These days, if you head out in search of a Yeti, you'll probably get a lot of giggles and funny looks, but back in 1959, the American Embassy in Kathmandu was taking such expeditions seriously. In a memo issued on Nov. 30 of that year, the embassy listed three specific regulations for Yeti searches...

    Researcher Claims to Have Shot and Killed a Sasquatch Nevada - (Ammoland.com) - Our regular readers will know that I love the story or idea that Bigfoots (or is it Bigfeets, as in more than one) could exist. So regular readers on AmmoLand never mind when we detour and take a break from all the serious news coverage to speculate on the idea that we have a giant man sized, wood booger, hunting the same woods as me and you. The recent gossip is, a controversial big foot researcher, named Rick Dyer, has shot a large bigfoot while filming a...
  • Photographs - GIANT Shotguns (Punt Guns), circa 1900

    A punt gun is a type of extremely large shotgun used in the 19th and early 20th centuries. A single shot could kill over 50 waterfowl resting on the water’s surface. The hunter would maneuver the entire boat in order to aim the gun. In the United States, this practice depleted stocks of wild waterfowl and by the 1860s most states had banned the practice. “Since Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897 there has been a punt gun salute every Coronation and Jubilee in Cowbit, Lincolnshire, England” - Wikipedia

    It’s officially legal to kill Bigfoot in Texas Cryptid conservationists, be on the alert; it's officially open season on Sasquatch. According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, if you can find Bigfoot in the state of Texas, you can kill it. Cryptomundo reader John Lloyd Scharf sent a letter to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department about whether it would be legal to kill Bigfoot, and apparently department Chief of Staff L. David Sinclair replied that killing an indigenous cryptid would be legal since it isn't listed as a game animal: The statute that you cite (Section 61.021) refers...

    Life's Little Mysteries ^ | 20 January 2012 | Benjamin Radford
    If You Spot Bigfoot, Should You Shoot Him? In the new Animal Planet reality TV show optimistically titled "Finding Bigfoot," a team of experts examines video of an alleged Sasquatch spotted in the Canadian Rockies. The video, shot by a man named Todd Standing, shows something large and dark, standing atop a wooded ridge and then ducking back behind a bush. It could pretty much be anything, and when the experts concluded that the subject was probably not a Bigfoot, Standing expressed his frustration: "No video is ever going to be evidence, ever. It's never going to be good enough…"...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is taking a second shot at describing his hunting experience. The former Massachusetts governor has called himself a lifelong hunter, yet his campaign acknowledged that he has been on just two hunting trips — one when he was 15 and the other just last year. Campaigning in Indianapolis on Thursday, Romney said he has hunted small game since his youth. "I'm not a big-game hunter. I've made that very clear," he said. "I've always been a rodent and rabbit hunter. Small varmints, if you will. I began when I was 15 or so...

    MIAMI. -- Even if they win this Super Bowl, the '06 Chicago Bears will never measure up to the '85 Bears -- and don't they know it. I'm not talking about on-field accomplishments; I'm talking about off-field escapades. I'm not talking about the number of future Hall of Famers on the roster; I'm talking about number of Absolute Wild Men on the roster. In those two departments, the '85 Bears would whip the current edition about 73-0. The game would be over before Prince cleared his throat. The club Lovie Smith and general manager Jerry Angelo have assembled is as...

    CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- South Africa proposed new laws Tuesday that would end the "canned hunting" of wildlife bred in captivity to be shot in closed reserves by wealthy tourists. Breeding threatened or endangered large predators such as cheetahs, lions or leopards for any type of hunting would be forbidden. Also banned would be all hunting that causes unnecessary suffering, such as the use of bows and arrows on large animals that can take hours or days to die. "The days of captive breeding of listed species for any purposes except science and conservation are over," Environment Minister Marthinus...

    GERING, Neb. -- The ibex head was jammed next to the moose, whose velvety antlers brushed against a rare red lechwe and an African bongo. Below them were several preserved bobcats, and at the far end of the storage container stood endangered leopards, frozen in lifelike mid-prowl. In all, there were more than 800 big-game and exotic animals piled into an old railroad car behind the Wyobraska Wildlife Museum, a modest and lightly visited facility here, far from any population center. It was just one of four large containers packed with animal mounts and skins -- trophies shot on expedition...

    About 14 million people a year buy hunting licenses in the U.S. That's less than 30 years ago, but if you add to that people who own lifetime licenses and youth hunters under 17 who don't need to buy licenses in some states (as they are accompanied by adults), there are close to 19 million hunters in the U.S. each year. If you add in those who don't hunt each year but still consider themselves active, the total number of hunters is closer to 24 million. But the untold story is that the culture of hunting is changing. There are...

    Cougar sightings go beyond the zoo By Jill Dobson, News 3 Reporter (NEWS 3) - Are wild cougars on the prowl in Michigan? Cougars have been blamed for a recent attack on farm animals in Kalkaska County. Most people have only seen cougars roaming in the zoo. But researchers at Michigan Wildlife Habitat Foundation say they've had reported sightings including in areas near Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Holland, Three Rivers and Cassopolis. Researchers say cougars prey on four-legged animals, and are highly unlikely to attack humans. Emmett Township resident Cyndy Ackley says she and her daughter were shocked to see a...
