Hypothetical situation: You're hunting in the woods with your new .50 caliber and as you look through your rifle scope, you see a frickin' Bigfoot. Now, there is a 10 million dollar reward (m.ibtimes.com/bigfoot-reward-10-million-prize-offered-find-sasquatch-new-spike-tv-series-1359595) for definite proof of Bigfoot, and this is your chance to become rich. Would you kill Bigfoot to become rich?

Edit: And also, in this hypothetical situation, you also spent years training to become an excellent shot. So if you pull the trigger you would definitely kill it.

What would you do?

I will answer in due time, but first I want to see how other posters would respond.

I never used a gun so I am not sure if I would be able to shoot Bigfoot.

But I think I would have a difficult time killing Bigfoot unless he was attacking me.

If I was skilled with a gun I may try to wound or disable Bigfoot instead of killing.

If I'm out hunting in the woods then it's because I'm being forced to, and I'll miss anything I shoot at on purpose anyway.

I'd shoot Cotton and sell his body to science for 50 bucks.

Too risky, it would probably turn out to be an escaped Orangutan or something. Don't think I would get any money in the end, so why bother?

Fortunately, television has shown me that Bigfoot is actually an alien robot with bionic strength. Shooting him would be a really bad idea.

On the other hand, if I could somehow make it work, there's probably also a reward for proof of alien life!


Because really, after taxes ten million only goes so far.

The only animals I kill,, that I don't intend to eat, are rats and raccoons. It is neither of them and doesn't look tasty so it is safe from me

Nah. I'd just record him with my phone.

Bradley

I would just calmly explain the situation to him and offer to split the money if he'll let me take his picture. That way, we both win (and he avoids the inevitable dissection that would come if he allowed himself to be captured).

Apparently there are several places where it is unlawful to kill a Bigfoot (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/05/16/1092163/-Bigfoot-hunting-legal-in-Texas-but-not-in-California), and at least one state (Texas) that states it's fully legal.

I'd photograph it or try to take video but historically it means my phone would die the second I turn it on or something would be wrong with the picture, or I'd be running so fast with the phone pointed behind me that the resulting film would look like Blair Witch II: The Bigfooting, or the Bigfoot would use it's psionic ability to cloud men's minds to escape, or it would eat me and the camera. Angering or surprising any large primate is a fatally bad idea, and Bigfoot would seem to be the largest on Earth by far.

Is there anything that is illegal to kill in Texas?

For ten mil there isn't a whole lot on this planet that I wouldn't kill.

So it's a clean kill; one shot, and Bigfoot doesn't suffer, right? And he's not intelligent. And he doesn't have a family, no mate or kids left behind. And. . .

Oh, who am I kidding?

What would you do?

This is my answer:

I would probably be overtaken by its majestic nature and couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger, even if it were for 10 million dollars, but it would probably attack me and I would have to kill it. And if I had to kill it because it was attacking me, I wouldn't be above claiming the reward.

Bigfoot should be hugged not shot.
But that thing? It shouldn't be allowed to breathe the air of other humans. Kill it while it's young.

Yes a hug from inside the stomach of the bloodlusted creature after it devours you!!!

For 10 million dollars, I would shoot Bigfoot, Bigfoot's Mom, her cable TV repair man, and the horse he rode in on. You can do an amazing amount of good in the world for a fraction of that.

A simple "yes, I would brutally murder Bigfoot for millions of dollars." would've sufficed.

Okay Charmed, nevermind, you do what you want to do while you're being attacked. Sorry for trying to save you from certain doom.

If I can get rich, famous, and prove Bigfoot exists by shooting bigfoot, then I'm going to f**king shoot Bigfoot! No ifs ands buts or hesitation about it.

... and while I'm at it, I think I'll buy a plane ticket and go visit Loch Ness. Just in case.

What's Bigfoot ever done to me, that I should treat him like that? Far better to convince him to come in himself, give a press conference, hit the talk show circuit, maybe go on a date with that nice Taylor Swift girl.

Fenris
05-15-2014, 09:12 AM
Practical application: if you want someone dead, and you don't want to do it yourself, try to talk them into going out into the woods wearing a Bigfoot costume.


"No, really, it's totally in this year!"
