He was always going to shoot one for proof, I recall the state doing something, It may be the Undiscovered Species Protection Act, but I can't find enough to back that up right now
You are apparently correct, at least in Skamania County. In 1969 the county adopted ordinance 69-01 making killing a bigfoot punishable with a $10,000 fine and up to 5 years in jail!

However, the felony charge and penalty was repealed by the commissioners in 1984 and Skamania County was declared a "Sasquatch refuge". Not sure what happens if you killed one in a "refuge".

There it is folks, guvmint at work. Stranger than fiction...you can't make this stuff up.
Thanks HarperC...this made my day.

Snubbie
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!

We hunt him every March in Elliston Mt. Pretty good bounty too, but the hunt is fun as well.

If we tried that here, we'd have more protesters than hunters! LOL

This is a funny post! How about a silenced .22 lr from a bolt gun with sub-sonic rounds? This way the beast couldn't pin point your firing position. You'd have to hit it in the head though to take him out...precision shooting at it's finest!! Remember, shot placement kills!!! LOL

You all got it wrong. BIG FOOT hunts you, he justs lets us in his woods. So ya need to think defensive. Like 12ga buck shot 3" or ar platform in 450 bushmaster, 458 socom with night vision and a trusty .45 1911 with crimson trace. There sneaky, U need a pet monkey tied to tree to distract him also. And for goodness sakes do not use BIG FOOT in Estrus sprayed on or around you. You might get more of a reaction than your looking for ! Hate to think how u could explain that to ur hunting buddies, or do u just keep that a secret to ur grave? Secret for sure.
