Governor signs hunting bills
Gov. Mary Fallin has signed House Bill 1920, which allows aerial hunting on private land of feral hogs, coyotes and coyote-dog cross breeds.
The permit holder must be a commercial big game license holder, landowners hunting on their own land or a contracted aerial hunter on specified property
The governor also signed House Bill 1928 which allows anyone younger than 30 to hunt with an apprentice license while supervised by another licensed hunter.
The old law stipulated anyone ages 8 to 30 could hunt with an apprentice designated license.
Turkey feathers wanted by tribe
Members of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma are asking turkey hunters to provide feathers for their ceremonial Turkey Dance.
“We have about 20 dances carried over from ancient times,” said Phil Cross, a historian for the Caddo Culture Club in Binger.
“We have a special dance called the Turkey Dance that is one of our most cherished. We use the feathers of the wild turkey in our dances and regalia.”
With Oklahoma's wild turkey hunting season underway, Harris is hoping that hunters could donate some feathers for the ceremonial dances.
“Wing and tail feathers are the most desired for making our fans and other items,” Cross said.
The Caddo Culture Club was established many years ago to preserve and teach the Caddo Indian culture and traditions.
Members of the club have appeared at powwows, universities, public schools, civic clubs, historical societies and museums throughout the United States to perform their dances.
If you have turkey feathers to donate, call Harris at (405) 933-2473 or email email@example.com.
