Trying to uncover Cryptids in Wyoming(Suggestions?)
I've been trying to look into different stories and sightings of cryptids in Wyoming, United States, desperately hoping to find some information somewhere. The state is FILLED with undeveloped land, large amounts of mountains, and wooded areas, and has a history of odd things happening.

I know of many, many ghost towns and haunted locations, but when it comes to Cryptids in the state, I find myself struggling to come across ANY kind of information. The few that i have uncovered I cannot find hardly ANY information on.

What I have so far:

Skin Walkers - No distinct Location
Dogman/Werewolf - Unknown/No distinct Location
Jackalope - Douglas
Sasquach - Lincoln, and Park County. Wyoming/Montana Border
Smetty - DeSmet (Buffalo, Wyoming)
Thunderbirds/Pteradon - No distinct Location
Nimerigar/Little People - San Pedro Mountains/Carbon County

As you can see from my list, while I've found reference to these creatures in Wyoming, I haven't been able to locate any actual areas of reference for where these sightings might have come from. A lot of my research is merely showing a Location of 'Wyoming'. Despite being a smaller state, with so much of it undeveloped, that makes it hard to pinpoint a location to look around for these creatures at.

I also know of stories of Wendigos in Wyoming - verbal accounts, but haven't been able to find any of these confirmed in my research so far.

I do plan to hit my local library to see if I can find any information in the books there (hopefully I might be able to uncover something there). So if any of ya'll know any stories, or sightings of ANYTHING odd in Wyoming, please, please share your information. It'd be greatly appreciated by myself and my friends who want to use this summer to explore some of Wyoming's Supernatural History.

Thank you, in advance, for any potential help, and for taking the time to read this.

I would go camp into those woods for a while, maybe a month or more away from humans to get into the right frequency and see them by myself.
You said ghost towns?, sounds interesting, I'll put Wyoming into my list for my next travel to the US.

I don't pay much attention to cryptid stories, but I'm surprised by two things in your post.

Jackalopes?? That's honestly considered a cryptid? I thought they were just a joke by bored taxidermists with a rabbit head and deer antlers? Or a postcard printer with trick photography.

Wendigos I always thought were confined to Australia?

Find a unicorn ranch, its rumored Sasquatch are attracted to them

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

There are rabbits or jackrabbits that have been sighted with antelope-like horns but it's not horns. It's a type of tumor that grows like horns. It's not a cryptid but a medical mutation.
But actual horns, yes, are the product of taxidermists who are inspired by the Native American legends of jakalope creatures.

Very interesting that Wendigos are an Australian thing, too. Makes you go hmmm. The Wendigo or Weetigo (different Aboriginal tribes here have different names or ways of spelling it.) legends are all over North America. In the medical field it's considered a psychological disorder that causes someone to commit cannibal acts or crave human flesh. Some people report seeing a Wendigo or Weetigo spirit before a couple infamous cannibalistic crimes were committed.

Sorry, I looked that up. I was confusing Wendigo with Bunyip,
