Default Oklahoma Bigfoot and The Faulk Monster on Monster Quest...

We always get a kick out of this on TBH.

Monster Quest is looking at unknown scat right now. What could it be?

Well, we know they're off track because a professional just said "that it is unlikely there is a population of feral humans running around in southern Oklahoma or east Texas."

This is not Bigfoot, it is my mother - in - law. She likes all the attention.

Yeah, actually it is Fouke. My father was the post commander (Sgt) for the Arkansas State Police in Texarkana when the "attacks" happened in the early 70's. He was on the "monster hunt" in '71, with H.L. Phillips, one of the guys that was featured at the first of the show. Phillips was a deputy then (went on to be Miller County Sheriff when my dad was the County Judge).

Brings back memories. We use to camp in that area when I was in Boy Scouts. The monster was a hoax, used by the locals to get rid of people that they didn't want in town.

Hey Bobcat. I have been running those same woods in southern oklahoma as a feral human for the last few years, only to detect other feral humans (sasquatch). To this day I have only found myself up there. LOL.....

But if you want to talk about feral humans running FM 1417 in say, 1992, I might know a thing or two about that. How about you?

For years there had been rumors and internet chatter about “big foot” sightings in and around the area I hunted in west-central Oklahoma. I have to tell you I never believed any of it and think it is funny.

Even so, on some mornings when taking those long, pre-dawn walks to a ground blind and when sitting on the ground waiting on day break your mind cant help but thinking about “big foot”. You would be amazed at how a tree stump, clump of grass or bush will “take on a human shape” in the dim moon light.

I never got spooked enough to get up or leave the area I was sitting but I will say I keep a close eye on those“shadows” until it got light enough to identify what it was. The mind can play tricks on you.

Sounds like an episode of Scooby-Do.

I think it's meant to scare people away from the meth labs. So my Okie neighbor says

Grizz, 1992 saw a rash of strange sightings in Grayson County. This is illustrated on the Texas Bigfoot page as well. It was an interesting time.

Do any of yall really think Bigfoot exist? Not trying to bring ya down if ya do but I would like to know why a huge harry man that gets cited all over the country can never get caught or shot by a hunter that stumbles onto him. Also no evidence of remains from one of these creatures makes me pretty skeptical. Now UFO's are a different story!!!! They do exist!

There were credible sightings of something in Grayson County around 1992 as Grizz stated.

Plenty of feral humans come out after 11:00 at night at the Porter and Cleveland Walmarts!

It does scare away people too.

I lived in Bell's as a kid back in 1956 and there was a giant wild man running loose along Choctaw and Mill creeks between Sherman and Ambrose, all this according to rumors at the time. Supposed to have killed calves and ate chickens raw, screamed at night etc. Kids were afraid to go hunting for rabbit and squirrel anywhere around there.
That thing would be getting pretty old by now. I wonder how long they live?

Back in the '70s it was pot fields. Number one cash crop of Arkansas. The former deputy that was on that program last night, Phillips, use to ride around the back roads with my father and I looking for pot fields. Sometimes we would say to him "look! a pot field!" and see him get all hyper and excited. Man, it was interesting growing up as a LEO's son.

Was born and raised in the Red River Valley. Been gone for a while. Lots of places I remember are gone or changed now but.... I have known lots of feral humans and have seen the critter in question myself. No... I was stone cold sober at the time.

Was born and raised in the Red River Valley and have run with my share of feral humans. I remember when David Alan Coe left the Broken Bit because of the wild critters he encountered. Heck... I may have even been spotted with Woody's mother-in-law back in the good old days. I remember sightings of Bigfoot that go back over twenty years before 1992. I even saw the critter myself and I was more or less sober at the time. I guess the bottom line is strange things roam the woods and fields at night. Some can drive and some cannot. Oh yeah... I remember when 1417 was a gravel road. Feral humans ran it then too! Y'all be careful out there!
