Annual Bigfoot Hunt in Montana

Hunting for Bigfoot can be as fun as going on a paranormal investigation, except for the fact that you are hunting a fictional character instead of actual ghosts. In this case, a local Montana bar hosts an annual Bigfoot hunt in celebration of the end of winter and the coming of spring.

In the town of Elliston, Montana, the Lawdog’s Saloon¬†hosts annual hunts where registered members pay a small fee of $15 to go “hunting” for a man in a Bigfoot costume.

According to an article in The Billings Gazette, in previous years, the small-town tradition has gathered hundreds of people excited to hunt down the mystical creature in preparation of the coming of the spring season. Each hunter that pays for a hunting license receive hunting kits that include gloves, a whistle, a small flashlight, bigfoot bait (jerky), and some beer nuts. When the man in the Bigfoot costume is found, a whistle is blown to signal other hunters that the hunt is over.

The 25th annual Bigfoot hunt is on March 21, 2015 at 6 p.m. You must be 21 or older to participate in this event. You can register by calling Lawdog’s Saloon at 406.492.8596.
