I am pretty sure this is a brown tarantula, which are very common in Oklahoma. They are basically harmless and their bites are supposedly similar to a bee sting and no more harmful. Some people may be sensitive to their hairs. Tarantulas eat anything they can catch and overpower including large insects.
