Funny stuff here...:bouncy:

I think I need to start my own search team- for $300-$500 apiece, I'm missing the boat!:biggrin::whistle:

If you're going to make a business out of taking naive people into national parks and extorting money from them to go hunt around for Bigfoot, then the U.S. National Park Service has this message for you: They want in.

Sasquatch hunter Matt Pruitt learned this when he was leading 31 believers (who had paid between $300 and $500 apiece) through Steel Creek in Arkansas last month and ran into rangers who cited him for "engaging in a business without a permit or written agreement."

Pruitt had to pay almost $600 for the permit, but apparently it's worth the expense. He's led Sasquatch-sighting-centered trips in 18 states and ranks Arkansas as being in the top three for potential to spot the wily beast.

Just another way to make a buck, another tax. Isn't anything free anymore? If you want take people on a hunt, to hunt something that isn't real, that should be your business, not the state governments.

There are just some things that shouldn't cost anything. I remember when they first put coin use toilets on Put-In-Bay. My buddy had to take a dump in the sink.:yikes:because he didn't have a dime in his pocket. Try to flush a sink with that stuff in it.:biggrin:

Don't ALL businesses that operate in public parks need a permit or license? If he were taking these tours for free then I could see the complaint. Does he even have a vendor's license to conduct a for-profit businees in that state?

I'm conducting Easter tours of my backyard looking for the Easter bunny. It's only $100 per person. Any takers? I already have a vendor's license...
