If you've ever spent time in the wilderness of Southeast Oklahoma, it's pretty common to get that creepy feeling that you're not alone.
I have an aunt and uncle that swear they heard a bigfoot come down the mountain near their camp one time... They heard really heavy footsteps and the cracking of tree limbs late one night. They chalked it up to perhaps a bear chasing elk, or something of the like.
When the daylight finally broke the next morning, it was obvious that elk or bear weren't responsible for the carnage. Big tree limbs were broken, inches in diameter. No hoof prints, no paw prints. Just carnage. It was enough to end their weekend trip early.
Is Bigfoot real?
Well that's the million-dollar question. I think of this creature in the same light as Schrodingers cat. He does and does not exist.
Do I think there's the possibility that a huge giant ape-like creature could be stalking the wild lands of the world? Absolutely. Do I need concrete proof? No. Just as there are new species discovered each week in the ocean, I don't think we've explored our entire world above sea level just yet.
There are plenty of people that agree, many of whom will be at the Kiamichi Mountains Bigfoot Conference in Talihina, Oklahoma this May.
