Why do people climb Mt. Everest? “Because it is there,” to quote a fellow who died trying.

Why do people hunt Bigfoot? Because it’s not there but hunters like a challenge.

Unfortunately for one Oklahoma shooting victim, Bigfoot hunters tend to have itchy trigger fingers.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told a local news station how a recent manly expedition went awry.

Saturday night, a couple of big game hunters near Tulsa decided to make history by slaying the mythological beast. The two men got their guns and headed on over to 177th East Avenue and Tiger Switch Road, an area wedged between two golf courses and a nature preserve, which sounds just like the kinda place Bigfoot might like.

One of the men, Omar Pineda, 21, heard a “barking noise” and got jittery. His gun went off and he accidentally shot his friend.

The injured man and his former buddy were able to scamper on over to the QuikTrip to meet an ambulance.

When the men told arriving deputies they were hunting Bigfoot, the deputies thought they were making stuff up.

When the deputies couldn’t find any guns, they figured they had a real head-scratcher on their hands.

After a long search, investigators found the gun used in the shooting in a pond at Pineda’s father-in-law’s house. Perry Don James, 53, was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm and destruction of evidence.

Pineda was arrested for reckless conduct with a firearm and obstruction.

Pineda’s wife, 22-year-old Lacey Jane, was arrested for telling cops someone else shot her husband’s friend.

And what about the Oklahoma Bigfoot?

“To our knowledge, [there have been] no Bigfoot sightings in Rogers County,” Sheriff Walton said.

Final score: Bigfoot 1, Hunters 0, Law Enforcement -3.

Wow – the gun nuts are shooting each other again. Cheney wanted to be there but had trouble keeping the appointment. Big Foot is chuckling in the brush. Time to get to the gun show for a larger bazooka and a couple of hand grenades as well as flak jackets, face paint, and 200 bullet magazines. (Didn’t the photographer ask them to smile?)

At least up in Helen, Georgia when they had the Bigfoot sighting last year, no body was shot. To think Helen, Georgia would be the voice of reason in Bigfoot hunting. I guess here in Georgia, we’re a catch and release state, where in Oklahoma, they must have 101 ways to cook Bigfoot. I wonder if they use a dry-rub.

This does not surprise me. The IQ level of someone who hunts bigfoot cannot be very high.

So close to being double-Darwin-Award winners! And is it just me, or does the guy in the middle mug shot look a little bit like Nicolas Cage?

Go ahead and laugh at these guys but I myself have spotted Bigfoot here in GA. And I almost had proof, but before I could fetch my camera to snap the obligatory grainy photo he escaped in a flying saucer.

It’s pretty obvious that they are making excuse of the crime they did. They are insinuating that the Bigfoot exists.
