All you need to hunt bigfoot in Texas is a valid Texas hunting license and the permission of the landowner.

Call them, they're actually quite professional about it. The girl I talked to at Parks and Wildlife never laughed or giggled once. She was very informative!
Alright! Great news there; who's up for a hunt?

Back in the winter of 2001 my youngest son and I were on our way from Boise,Idaho to Medford,Oregon.We had taken a car trailer to his old place in Boise in order to haul his non-running Jeep to his new place in Medford.We hit an area of heavy snow in the southern Cascades around 2:00 a.m.It took 45 minutes or so to get down the mountain.We had,of course been drinking coffee to stay alert.
About 25 miles west of the pass it became obvious that the last few quarts of coffee had to be drained.We stopped at a wide spot in the road near a summer tourist haunt,deserted in winter.There is a gas station and ice cream joint on the west side of the road,closed this time of year,and no town or settlement within 30 miles.This is tall timber country,and unsettled.Across the road is a small parking area for the ice cream joint.It is paved and about 200 ft.wide and 80 ft.deep.I pulled in and as I stepped out with .45 on hip,it occurred to me in a flash that grabbing the 590 Mossy would be good.
As we walked to the far end of the area to be well off the road,the hair on my arms and the back of my neck stood on end.The area directly
to our front was open with a depth of 50 yards and a width of 100 yards.The night was clear and cold,8-10 inches of snow on the ground,and with a moon almost full,so we could see quite well.While standing and taking a leak,with son about 15 ft.to my right I saw,as if springing from the earth in front of us across the open area 10 or 12 creatures moving RAPIDLY back and forth in sort of a Thatch weave pattern.These things,not human men,were close to 7 ft.tall,thin,bipedal with long arms,medium length gray fur, and damned fast on their feet.I brought the shotgun up and slid the safety off,as son was drawing his .45.
I don't know if I can adequately explain the overwhelming feeling of menace,but here goes.I had been operating on pure instinct since I had stepped from the pickup,the rotten feeling hit me a split second before the things arrived,the feeling?,instinct?, was that we were prey,and subject to a very bad death,and to be slaughtered and eaten,not a logical process,gut feeling and massively overwhelming.
As they were moving about in front of us,more appeared and mixed among them,all the while running about fast in front of us.Son and I were backing toward the truck,I WOULD NOT present my back to them,and some of them peeled off right and left in an encirclement movement.They were rolling in fast from the sides now,I could smell and feel their presence.We got to the truck loaded on adrenaline and ready to kill,as we both knew we were in grave danger.We piled into the truck,locked doors.I had keys out and ready,as my butt neared the seat, I had the engine lit and trans.in gear and gas pedal mashed in one motion.Adrenaline is great stuff!As we fled,yes fled,something VERY close by let out a ululating scream of rage,and pain.I believe one or more of the group had gotten really close to us in their pursuit and I ran over the foot of one of them,yeah they were that close.We rolled onto the highway and I told son to watch the bed of the pickup as well as the trailer,he already was indexed to the rear with the shotgun.We hauled ass for at least 20 miles before the feeling of grave danger started to abate. The feeling that nailed both of us,as we discussed soon afterward,was one of being prey,and soon to be slaughtered and eaten.I am not easily led,and neither believe or disbelieve all the bigfoot,ghost and werewolf stuff,in fact I am skeptical. Son was speaking with a coworker about 6 months later who had grown up in Prospect,Oregon,about 30 moles south of Union Creek where the incident took place.He asked Jake if he had ever heard of any strange goings-on in the area.Jake went ashy white and pretty much retold the above tale.He says to avoid the place at night.A family friend,a 25 yr.retired cop not given to flights of fancy and an excellent observer, had a tale very similar from a year before.I told my wife of this event of course,she looked at me at the beginning as though I had developed a 3rd eyeball in the center of my forehead.That was from shock,she did believe me,but did not wish to hear any details.She said the tale gave her chills.Me too,as I write this,hair on back of neck and forearms is sticking up.
I have NOT gone back to explore,and would not without a large group of shotgun and flamethrower equipped men with me.
Son and I are both sane,sober persons,and not taken to hysteria.We were wide,VERY wide awake as things transpired.We saw and smelled what was there.As a sidebar neither of us heard footfalls from the creatures.They were silent until i hurt one as we were getting the Hell out of there.
To my knowledge,and I have researched,there is nothing that matches these creatures,unless one considers old legends and folk tales of were creatures. To conclude,I have to fall back on Elmer Keiths famous line,"Hell,I was there"
best regards, Mike Minihan
I was raised in the area and have fished everywhere 50 miles in any direction.

There are Bigfoot in the area, I also logged all over the area, ask loggers in southern Oregon about the creatures, Mikes story rings TRUE.

FWIW, In the early 80s I drove a truck hauling heavy equipment up and down the I-5 corridor and numerous trips across the cascade mountains from Wa state down to California. I've seen a thing or 2 that makes me wonder. I really don't know what I may have seen... But there are possibilities. I do know running through parts of Nevada, those crazy Pronghorns would run across the road in front of you and in the middle of the night they looked like some kind of demon. But in the cascades...

"Sasquatch kills the hunter."

Quote:
"Well, I asked him who he was, and he replied very calmly, just as sane as anyone, that his name was Linus Norgren," McDonald recalled. And in the same reasonable voice, that "he was a Sasquatch from a family of Sasquatches."

The Sasquatch didn't like it when explorers in the Sam Houston National Forest drew too near him last week, and in his fury he hurled giant logs at the curious humans.

That's according to Wes Germer, host of the Sasquatch Chronicle podcast, whose team ventured into the East Texas Piney Woods with the guide of Bob Garrett and sons, a Conroe family of self-declared "cryptozoologists," who have tracked legendary creatures through the woods north of Houston for years, and who document thier findings in various bigfoot blogs.

I gotta say that the new TV show, MOUNTAIN MONSTER HUNTERS,.... those good ol boys from Kentucky and Tennessee, have absolutely no problems running into big foots all the time.

It is like the Normandy Invasion..........sasquatches as thick as Nazis.

Each show they are harassed and chased by bigfeets and have none of the problems finding them, that those other Bigfoot Hunters have on the other shows.

That chupacabra trap, that boys set up worked--they got a chupacabra............. and a bigfoot then went and busted it all up, to get his pet chupacabra out................ took the cake it did. Damn, who'd a thunk it?

Survivor man had a dual show a while back up in the Pacific Northwest, that appeared to get one on camera, that looked pretty authentic. But what do I know?

Teddy Roosevelt wrote about sasquatch in 1885.

BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Eastern Kentucky is known as a great place to hunt for many things, deer, elk even bears, but what about Bigfoot? Some Bigfoot hunters believe the creature may be roaming in those very woods.

The group will search different locations in Bell and Harlan counties, with the help of Middlesboro's Tri-State Paranormal Investigators.

"DENVER — The legend of ‘Sasquatch’ or ‘Bigfoot’ has been known far and wide for centuries now. In Northern Colorado, a newly released photo snapped by a local couple claims to have captured evidence of ‘Bigfoot’ lurking in the Rocky Mountains.

“People from around the world are paying attention to this,” said Michael Johnson, with Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies.

Johnson owns a museum in Denver dedicated to Bigfoot. In it, he has a copy of the photograph shot by Jeff and Theresa Yelek.

“If you focus [on it], you can see the nose, the black eye, the hair,” he said.

The photograph was taken near North Park."

When I was a boy, my wealthy neighbor was involved in the early publicizing of the Patterson Bigfoot film. I think he was a friend of Patterson and financed copies of the film to be sold or distributed. A while later there were countless rolls of the film melted in the family burn pile.

I heard this year someone had admitted this was a fake. Fun times for a kid though back then. When I stayed at their place until dark I would get scared and run like hell home.

Man y'all have been searchin' the wrong places if ya can't find a Bigfoot. Southeast Oklahoma is ate up with'em. I've got a younger buddy, real good lookin' GQ type that refuses to hunt alone unless he's got protective gloves and such with him. Apparently the female BF like to kidnap men, throw them in a pit with steep walls, and lick their hands with their rough tongues until the victims palms are raw and bloody. This prevents the victims from using their hands to climb out of the BF pit/nest and escaping. One victim claimed to have been used as a sex slave for three days before he was able to escape.

She probably finds them through Craigslist.

(CNN)—Which came first: Saskatchewan or the sasquatch? That question probably never occurred to you, unless you were watching the Utah Jazz play the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.

During the basketball game, Fox Sports announcer Mark Followill pointed out that Jazz forward Trey Lyles was the first person from Saskatchewan to ever play in the NBA.

"Of course that region's known for being known for being home to a lot of sasquatches," broadcast partner Jeff Wade added. "That's what it's named for."

I experienced a Bigfoot sighting as a child back in the 1970's. During that time, the Bigfoot Craze was well underway and a number of low-budget films had hit the theaters. Me and one of my buddies went to see "The Legend of Boggy Creek." During the intermission, the theater usher came lumbering down the aisle dressed in a full on Bigfoot costume in a misguided attempt to scare us kids.

I was determined to kick Bigfoot's ass, as were several other of the kids in the audience. The usher soon found himself engulfed in a swarm of sugared-up 8-10 year olds who released a flurry of weak (remember, I was about 8) punches and kicks to the surprised and chagrined primate. I vividly remember being shoved backwards down the carpeted steps as me and my friend took on our quarry. Bigfoot immediately beat a hasty retreat back to the projection room as we congratulated ourselves on our great victory with toasts of licorice and Pixie Stix.

Oh, to be a kid again...
