OKLAHOMA CITY (KWCH) — An Oklahoma lawmaker is offering the world a chance to come in and find Bigfoot.

At the end of the legislative session, Rep. Justin Humphrey (R) re-upped on a bill he filed in January which would establish a “bigfoot hunting season.”

Humphrey has not said whether or not he believes in the elusive creature, but he said a documentary filmed in Oklahoma and a $3 million reward for anyone who “humanely” captures Bigfoot alive will drive interest and tourism for the Honobia Bigfoot Festival, Oct. 1-2.

“We’re wanting the whole world to come to southeastern Oklahoma, to the state of Oklahoma and get involved in our bounty – Oklahoma bounty, Bigfoot bounty. So, we’re excited to invite the whole world to come and participate.”
