New Delhi: A Texas man who bills himself as “The Best Bigfoot Tracker In The World” claims he shot and killed Bigfoot 16 months ago near San Antonio and plans to take the preserved corpse on a national tour.

Rick Dyer said he plans to tour Bigfoot around the country after releasing a picture of him last week.

In an account of the incident, Dyer, a self-described professional Bigfoot hunter, said people reported a giant hairy beast in the wooded area and he bought ribs from a local Walmart that he nailed to a tree to lure the beast.

Dyer said his hands went numb as he aimed the gun at Bigfoot after it ripped the ribs off the tree and walked away.

Dyer chased after Bigfoot and shot him.

But this is not the first time Dyer has claimed to find Bigfoot's body. The National Geographic News reported in 2008 that Dyer claimed to media that he had a Bigfoot body that later turned out to be a rubber ape costume.

But despite his history of past Bigfoot hoaxes, Dyer insists this time it's real and he has the studies to prove it.
