Kicker – Sasquatch season

NICK EICHER, HOST: Calling all hunters seeking novelty! You may want to head to Oklahoma if a bill filed last week passes. 

Representative Justin “J.J.” Humphrey wants to open up a new hunting season for large, furry, ape-like bipeds taller than the average man. 

Yes, an official Sasquatch hunting season. You know, Bigfoot. 

Humphrey’s district includes heavily forested mountains near the Arkansas border, where a Bigfoot festival happens each year. 

So the bottom line is this: Humphrey says selling state hunting licenses and tags could help boost tourism and that in turn boost state coffers. 

Always an angle.
