Re: what would be the minimum size rifle for hunting a big foot/sasquatch
It must be winter, my curiosity is tweaked. I woke up last night and remembered the professor at WSU was Grover Krantz. I also remember a picture of him in the paper with his Bigfoot rifle, but can neither remember, or find what caliber it was. As he was considered the foremost expert on Bigfoot if we can find this, we'll have the answer to the original question. He used to take the rifle and spotlight cruising backroads at night looking for the beast (Unless you're a professor I'm not sure F&G will buy it). His recommendations though were for a bigger than normal deer rifle. You did not want to be monkey stomped or have to chase it a long ways. Finishers, and throwing lot's of rocks, poking with a long stick before gutting was also indicated. One of his quotes, when asked why not tranquilize and capture it? He said that it would be totally cruel to keep one in captivity, and besides being dead never hurt anyone. Stuff like this keeps our left coast crazies on the phone, wanting laws to protect it. Kind of like NASA spending our money tracking down that psychics mystery planet, and debunking the whole Mayan 2012 calendar. Or the stray horse advocates claiming endangered species status, because horses the Spanish left bred in a secret lost valley in Arizona or New Mexico, with horses left over from the Pleistocene. Only in America!
