Park Service: Permit Required for Bigfoot Hunting Expeditions

We've all heard horror stories about shady guides ripping off clients, but Matt Pruitt might be the shadiest. Pruitt leads bigfoot believers on expeditions through national parks charging between $300 and $500 a pop.

But as Pruitt found out, these days you can't even lead tourists on hunts for a mythical animal without the government taking its cut.

This from MSN.com

"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."

I wonder what Pruitt's success rate is on these bigfoot sighting trips?
