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?
