The Deer Man is a mysterious humanoid cryptid that was reportedly witnessed on a night in early Spring 2012 in the Witchita Mountains in Oklahoma by Kyle Heying and several friends. The creature was first seen after it was illuminated in their headlights.
The creature was described as standing upright like a man, with human-like arms and legs. However, the head resembled that of a buffalo or an elk. The creature possessed glowing red eyes and was capable of emitting a piercing screech.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A misidentified deer
- A wendigo
- A hoax
