Oklahoma City, OK – An Oklahoma politician introduced a bill in the state legislature that would establish a Bigfoot hunting season. State Representative Justin Humphrey, a Republican, introduced House Bill 1648 last week. The bill would direct the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Division to create the annual dates of the season as well as creating hunting licenses and fees.

The bill is scheduled for its first reading on Feb. 1. A press release posted on the Oklahoma House of Representatives website explained why Humphrey introduced the legislation.
“Tourism is one of the biggest attractions we have in my House district,” Humphrey said, according to the House of Representatives website.
“Establishing an actual hunting season and issuing licenses for people who want to hunt Bigfoot will just draw more people to our already beautiful part of the state. It will be a great way for people to enjoy our area and to have some fun,” he said.
Humphrey said in the press release he doesn’t want people to actually kill Bigfoot. He said the final language for his bill that specifies only the trapping of Bigfoot. Humphrey said he wants at least $25,000 that can be used as a bounty for the first person to trap Bigfoot.
“A lot of people don’t believe in Bigfoot, but a lot of people do,” Humphrey said, according to the press release. “Just like some people like to go deer hunting, while some don’t.”
Humphrey said he’s done work on more serious legislation, such as censorship and protecting the beef industry. Humphrey said tourism is just as important to his district for the amount of dollars it draws. Humphrey said the town of Honobia, OK, has an annual Bigfoot festival during October. He said the Bigfoot hunting season should coincide with that.
“Having a license and a tag would give people a way to prove they participated in the hunt,” Humphrey said, according to the press release. “Again, the overall goal is to get people to our area to enjoy the natural beauty and to have a great time, and if they find Bigfoot while they’re at it, well hey, that’s just an even bigger prize.”
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the resurgence of lockdowns that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
