An Oklahoma lawmaker has introduced a bill to establish a Bigfoot hunting season in hopes of capitalizing on Bigfoot tourism in the area.
A hiker found a large footprint he believes may be evidence of Bigfoot in the Bear River Range of northern Utah.
Matthew Wentz may have found evidence of Sasquatch while hiking in the Cache Valley of northern Utah last month, the Idaho State Journal reports.
Wentz discovered the large impression in the ground on June 5th in the Mount Naomi Wilderness area.
“I thought, wow, that is really weird,” Wentz said. “I was looking at the depth of it and how wide it was. I thought it was probably older because you could tell there were pebbles on it. I’m guessing there was snow on the ground to make the impression because the ground up there is pretty hard. You usually can’t see tracks of the bigger animals. Right now, you won’t see anything on hard ground even if it weighs 1,000 pounds.”
Wentz took a photo of the footprint and posted it on Facebook in the Cache Valley is Beautiful group.

“While hiking in the mount Naomi wilderness. I came across this giant track,” Wentz wrote in the post. “Whether it is a real track, i honestly don’t know. But if it is real, its definitely a sasquatch. People are quick to laugh, but sasquatch was reported in this area and i know several people who have seen it long ago. I believe if it was here and that the large increase of people in recent years have driven it out. Most of those sightings were 30-40 years ago. I marked where the toes are.”
