Sasquatch

I didn't know where to put this. Exotics? Anything goes?

So my friend asked me to go bigfoot hunting this summer in western Washington. He is a firm believer and has a few specific spots he wants to check out. I'm not sure that they exist, but I know enough people who have heard and seen them that I'm at least open to tagging along.

There's a couple of questions though, I thought I'd ask the group.
Any thoughts about whether they exist?
Would it be wrong to shoot a sasquatch? They'd be endangered, but then it would probably be better for the species if their existence were proven.
Caliber?
Does anyone have any sasquatch stories? Or even better, any specific areas to look at (we'll be in the Olympics and St. Helens areas).

Even though they don't exist, it is against the law in WA to shoot one.

Yeah, I read that thread.
I brought it up again because I wanted to see if anyone else had come up with a new sighting and to ask the specific questions about hunting spots and equipment.

As to the hypothetical legality, I'm not sure. It's a little bit ridiculous to debate the laws about shooting an animal that either doesn't exist or most likely won't ever be shot, but Washington law seems ambiguous. If I remember correctly (and I'm not confusing it with Michigan hunting law) Washington gives a licensed hunter the freedom to kill "unclassified mammals." They intended mostly small game I think, but I think sasquatch might make it under that umbrella. Maybe I'm mistaken. Also, wouldn't discovering a new species be worth a fine and temporary loss of hunting licenses?

Sasquatch

When I was camping at Tietion Pond, up on Bethal Ridge on White Pass. Met up with a group of campers and we got on the topic of big foot. One guy supposidly saw big foot up around Thunder/Lightning pond area (up Wildcat Creek Rd on the East side of the Rimrock tunnel). He followed his tracks but lost them. There was some snow on the ground but yet there was also grassy area from what he said.
And as far as shooting one, I think go for it so you or we as in human mankind will know for sure that they are real. Im a firm beliver in that there are some things out there that we dont know or hasn't discovered yet out in the woods or the jungles(myths) and they might be true since stories have been passed down from generation to generation.

Weather it exists or not doesn't matter any more. That people believe and do look for it is, I think good. Many people forget how to dream. Who knows what might be found in the search for Big Foot, maybe Big Foot! Dare to dream!!!!!

Yes, but would it be worth it if it weren't a new species, but a human instead?

When I went with my stepson to hunter ed, a game agent was asked the hypothetical and his answer was no, can't do it.

But for giggles there is also this.

I wonder how he came to that conclusion, either way it really throws a wrench in my plans I was planning to shoot the bigfoot that Ive been watching for the past few years, I thought about taking him last year but he was still the herd foot but Im sure he wont be able to hold his own against some of the younger feet. But, after I bag him I was planning on spending the summer fishing for nessie, I have heard they start spawning in late august(for you laymen out there its about the same time as unicorns coats change)

I think I detect gentle mocking.
Well, I might check out Wildcat Creek Road if we are in need of some more spots.
And billythekidrock, thanks for the warning about shooting a person. That is something worth worrying about when you're out in the national forest looking for a primate. It would be a lot easier to make a mistake than with an elk.

What about trapping? Maybe a cage trap that looks like a tent maybe?
