Jack Link’s enthusiasts and poker fans have just a few more days to play Texas Hold ‘Em against Sasquatch, the star of the now-iconic Messin’ with Sasquatch campaign, featuring adventure seekers playing sophomoric pranks on an unsuspecting Sasquatch.

The promotion ends
April 8, 2010.
"Bluffin’ With Sasquatch is designed to bring friends of Sasquatch and poker buffs together," said Jeff LeFever, director of marketing, Jack Link’s Beef Jerky. "We anticipate campaign followers will go ‘all in’ and feed their wild side — playing poker against the world’s most elusive creature."
