what would be the minimum size rifle for hunting a big foot/sasquatch

if you were to go hunting for a sasquatch, what rifle would you want to be using? because of the environment that most big foot sightings occur, lets assume shots would be a MAXIMUM of 200 yards or so...

i myself would prefer a double barrel .375 with iron sights because those hippo videos are pretty compelling evidence that it would be plenty of rifle for any giant ape

i know its a give or take. but id rather lose one because i couldnt get close enough rather than be mauled to death because it got too close and i couldnt get my scope on him quick enough...

Re: what would be the minimum size rifle for hunting a big foot/sasquatch

was bored at work. came across some article about supposed big foot sightings that resulted in the people who saw the big foot shooting it and being unable to kill the beast. calibers mentioned were the .30-06 and the .270. thought it might spark some lively discussion but i guess i was mistaken. thanks for your valuable contribution.

I would use a lightsaber since the probability of a close quarter encounter at night is high. It would double as a flashlight and a weapon that wouldn't be deflected by the surrounding trees.

I have though about this and after I kill the Big foot I'd have it mounted in the "thinker" pose.

Re: what would be the minimum size rifle for hunting a big foot/sasquatch

I have given this much thought also. I think the cheytac should give plenty of energy out to a mile for my bigfoot kill.

I know I'm close because the official bigfoot site has two sightings on the same road of one of our favorite LRH spots.

I plan to mount mine myself so this will be my first mount.

Pose used: "The Goat"
