I'm curious if anyone knows of any cryptids in oklahoma, since I live here.  I'm having a hard time on google.  I've heard of two: Bigfoot and Goatman.  I know there must be others that may have relations with Native American legend/mythology/history, but I don't know of any recent sightings.  Anyone know of anything?

There are some related to Native American Folklore.

Good luck buddy!  =p

I used to live in Altus, near Lawton. Nothing. Absolutely nothing paranormal ever happened and I lived there for 6 freakin years.  disgust.gif

Only in 2005 when I was watching a show on National Geographic did I hear of Bigfoot sightings in Oklahoma. Fraid I forgot where they said the sightings were. It was a shocker.

The towns near the more forested and wild parts might have some local legends. Have you asked anyone you know? Maybe an old person who has lived there awhile if they have heard of something?

Been here 19 years, never seen anything weird, well scratch that, I saw a duck eat a snake once that's about it.  Heard of sightings of a couple ufos.  As for Bigfoot, sounds like he's down in south east OK in the mountains around Talahina. But supposedly, there's more spread around the state, but not anywhere around where I live.  Wikipedia said Goatman was sighted in Ok.  Supposed to be some Crybaby Bridges around to state and a haunted hill near ochelata and a few haunted places spread around. But that's all I know...never seen any of it, except the duck. Maybe there ain't really much that happens here.

Southeast Oklahoma has a ton of Bigfoot activity. I've seen tons of shows and whatnot of expeditions down there. If you're familiar with the BFRO people, they've taken a huge interest in the area, towards the end of this year they're doing an expedition that anyone can go on for a hefty sum of money haha.

Lived in Oklahoma all my life. Ozark Howlers supposed to live up near the Mountains somewhere. I think I've caught sight of it once or twice. Supposed to look somewhat like a bobcat, or lynx, but, there are several things different about it. Some say its supposed to have two horns on its head, and its completely black. Its called the Ozark Howler, because it lives on the Ozark, and it lets out this screeching howl, that sounds like a scream or something. ^^

My husband is Cherokee and has told me stories of things that he calls 'skellies' or something like that. They are about 3 feet tall, human shaped but covered in fur from head to toe. They are supposed to be a bad omen if seen and bring bad luck. He claims to have been chased by one once when he was a teenager. I've never seen one but they are a very common legend in my area (eastern Oklahoma).

I've read in the newspapers of bigfoot sightings, and I found a reference in a book about strange occurrences in Oklahoma to some sightings of a sort of deer-like Canid.

I've heard a few stories about bigfoot  and alot of ghost stories from relatives that live there but have any of you heard about a cult of devil worshipers that live at a place called Tator Hill by Madill/Lake Murray.  I heard they caught a couple of hitchhikers one time and only one of them got away.

Deer like Canid you say? I've seen pictures of what are supposed to be 'dead' baby Ozark Howler's, that look like small deer... The Ozark Howler looks like a dog and a cat, so, yes, it might be that.

I've lived in Eastern Oklahoma my whole life and have never heard of these Ozark Howlers or skellies. And I'm part Cherokee, you'd think this would have been brought to my attention.

I have heard a lot of bigfoot stories from down Southeast. Goatman here is news to me.

Nothing to see here.

The "wolf/deer" was only mentioned in two sightings (in the book at least), and was not related to the Howler. I think it was brown or reddish in color. It's probably not a real cryptid for being very obscure and poorly documented, but it is interesting. I don't think the Ozark Howler is a cryptid either, from what I've read up on it I think it's probably a local folkloric creature based on the cougar.
