A man who led tour groups on a hunt for Bigfoot met up with the long arm of the law instead, and got fined for doing business on federal lands without a permit.

Matt Pruitt was leading a group expedition for The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization at the Buffalo National River Park in Arkansas in February when he and his group of 31 people were stopped by two park rangers. Pruitt was slapped with a hefty $525 fine for a lack of a commercial use permit.

The Bigfoot myth was created to distract us from the Sasquatch.

“When you complete any sort of transaction you become a concessionaire and need the proper permit.

Right up there with selling lemonade without a license. Threatened with $500 fine.

Federal apparently doesn’t mean it belongs to all of us.

“The organization typically charges as much as $500”

That is no joke. Matt Moneymaker from BFRO contacted me once about joining his 3-day Olympic Rainforest expedition. He just about guaranteed a BF encounter. Right then warning flags were waving and I told him to get lost. I’m an avid NW Outdoorsman, and I can tell you I could not guarantee you an encounter with a deer, beaver, elk, otter, bear, turkey, or any of the vast number of animals living in these woods. Much less a Bigfoot which if they exist would be thousands of times smaller numbers than any of the species mentioned above.

You wanna go get some rocks?

I know “some people” who were sitting in a hot pool up in Jellystone when a man and woman joined them. Stripped, hopped in, drank, smoked, got back out and put their Ranger uniforms on and told everbody it was a bust. Ya ever run naked thru the forest at night with out the help of hallucinogenics?

Yeah, I find that odd too. If they are “federal lands”, I kinda thought that meant that we paid for them in some form or another. Duh, stupid me. I forgot that you must be a federal employee to use them. Doooohhhhhh!
