Hire Me To Find Bigfoot For $150,000!

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 15th, 2008

Yes, you can sign up and bid on an eBay auction for a Bigfoot hunter’s services!

David Pescovitz over at Boing Boing has alerted me to a unique type of auction going on over at eBay. There’s a hunter who is selling his/her services to hunt “Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti,” and the person “will search for and find” Sasquatch for a price. So writes eBay user TPeterson6969 (those numbers aren’t sexual references, are they?).

As David says, “Starting bid for his or her services is $150,000.”

This Bigfooter says, “I have been a big game hunter nearly all of my life and am an experienced big game hunting guide and am currently employed by a big game hunting outfitter in Wyoming. Contact me if you would be interested in funding an expedition that will get results.”

Other than needing a little help putting spaces between his/her sentences, maybe this person will get a taker.

Read more about it at David’s posting, here.

Okay, TPeterson6969, I challenge you to come forth and let Cryptomundo interview you about what skills you will bring to the field for the angel’s $150,000!

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    I don’t know whether to feel disgust at this or just amusement. Maybe I also get a little “At least we’re getting recognition” kind of jibe. It goes away, though real quickly.

    Ultimately, you’re right, Loren. Let TPeterson6969 show us what he/she is made of. We do not want another Biscardi, please.

  2. Rogutaan responds:

    Why is there a 16 dollar shipping cost?

    And if by some weird stroke of fate he’s legit, he’s only gonna get fake bids anyhow.

  3. CamperGuy responds:

    Hmmmmmm… Considering the occupation I’d think he’d have most of the equipment needed. So he is expecting a large profit margin. The American way!

    Results are promised, but what kind? Disappointing results? Tree knock results? Track? Captured alive and taught to perform “The Ritz” on stage?

    Can I make a similar offer at a mere $149,000.00? Also the American way. 🙂

    I’d think someone sure of themselves enough to find Bigfoot would also have enough faith in themselves to do so on their own and make more than $150,000.00.

    Best of luck to them if they try. Tranquilize and no kill please.

  4. youcantryreachingme responds:

    I’ll find the thylacine / Tasmanian tiger for $30K.

    Perhaps his username reflects his birthday – 6 Sept 1969? Or is it 9 June 1969 Stateside? 🙂

  5. Gummerfan responds:

    150K? With that operation’s budget, I could guarantee the Big Guy’s head on a platter. (or a reasonable facsimile thereof)

  6. red_pill_junkie responds:

    He! So I guess Nessie would require AT LEAST half a million 😉

    But what about refunds, y’all? 😛

  7. Ferret responds:

    This reminds me of those tours they sell on cruises where you’re *guaranteed* to see a whale (or your money back!). All I’ve got to say is this guy is seriously undercutting himself, there are millions of dollars in prize money out there for the first person to put forth evidence of Bigfoot, why settle for a meager 150K? If this guy can find him why doesn’t he cash in, OH WAIT he’s too late because already have a body sitting in their freezer, I get it; he’s too late and trying to scam people into an expedition for evidence that “already exists” before it’s too late…

    Yeah I’ll believe his skills when I see the results…

  8. Lightning Orb responds:

    Hold on, guys, this Peterson might not really be scamming anyone; perhaps he/she really is just trying to make a living off some harmless old mountain monkey’s demise. Perhaps this person really thinks they can outwit one of the wisest and greatest of earth’s creatures and bring the “Big Guy’s head on a platter” (great terinology, Gummerfan). But they better watch out; the Squatchter’s forest hitmen (El Chupacabras and the Jersey Devil) are always watching… 🙂

  9. captainadam_21 responds:

    It is fun searching for all the spelling errors. It is like searching for Waldo. Very amusing.

    Also, I think with the price of gas this days, the shipping cost of $15.95 is quite reasonable, especially if he has to drive all the way from Minnesota to Oregon.

    I find it amusing that a person who has the number ’69’ in his name not once but twice has the nerve to refer to others as ‘amateurs’.

    There are quite a few amusing comments on the Boing Boing web site.

  10. whiteriverfisherman responds:

    I ain’t paying 150k for that. The guys in Georgia already have a Bigfoot in there walk-in freezer. I tell ya what though, I will give he or she 10k if he or she can convince Alanis Moressette a regular guy from Indiana would make a nice catch! 🙂

  11. Rogutaan responds:

    I don’t trust anyone without a user feedback reviews.
