This story came from Buffalo National River in Arkansas. It’s a reminder to make sure you’ve got everything you need, especially when you’re hunting for Bigfoot.
On Feb. 24, National Park Service rangers received information from a concessionaire who reported that there were visitors in the park who were on a “Bigfoot hunting expedition.”
Rangers Billy Bell and Ben Henthorne proceeded to the Steel Creek Campground to investigate. After questioning numerous people associated with the group, they discovered that approximately 30 people had paid Matt Pruitt, who is affiliated with The Bigfoot Field Researcher’s Organization, to lead them on a hunt for the creature. Several participants said that they had paid $300 to $500 each to be lead on a three-day expedition.
Pruitt was cited for a violation of the regulation on engaging in a business without a permit or written agreement.
