Destination America is setting out to capture Bigfoot, the elusive hominoid creature said to inhabit forests.

The Gryphon Productions and Monster Hunter Productions-made Killing Bigfoot is slated to shadow Bobby Hamilton, Jim Lansdale and the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization as they search for a “sleeker, faster and more aggressive type of Bigfoot” attacking homes, farm animals and pets throughout the state of Texas. 

The six-part series will document the team as they attempt to help and protect those recently frightened by alleged encounters with the Sasquatch with the ultimate objective of killing the creature.

The Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization consists of members with an array of backgrounds that include civil engineering, IT and corporate technology, private investigation and surveillance, former policemen, National Guard and military veterans and a medical technician.

Executive producers on the series include Gryphon’s Peter von Puttkamer and Destination America’s Fay Yu. Sheera von Puttkamer serves as producer.

Killing Bigfoot debuts on Destination America on Feb. 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
