Bigfoot hunter cited for commercial use on national park land without a permit

Leader Of Bigfoot Expedition Cited For Permit Violation (NPS Digest).

On February 24th, rangers received information from a concessionaire who reported that there were visitors in the park who were on a “Bigfoot hunting expedition.”

…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.

This occurred at the Buffalo River Park in the Arkansas Ozark Mountains. You are not allowed to engage in commercial uses on park property without a permit.

We had reported on Bigfoot expeditions in the past. They make money taking folks out on a weekend camping trip trying to spot evidence of Bigfoot. Obviously, no guarantee you are going to find anything but this is a nifty little business they have going.


But, I’m $ure such expeditions will continue.
