Hunters can feed the hungry

Oklahoma's deer gun season opened Saturday and hunters who have plenty of meat in the freezer already should consider donating to the Hunters Against Hunger program.

Last year, more than 41,000 pounds of meat were donated to the program by Oklahoma deer hunters, which provided approximately 164,000 meals to needy families in the state.

After deer are checked in at a hunter check station or online at www.wildlifedepartment.com, they can be donated to a meat processor that participates in the Hunters Against Hunger program.

A list of those meat processors is listed on the Wildlife Department's website. Hunters are asked to contribute $10, which is tax-deductible, to help offset costs.

The Wildlife Department is searching for more meat processors and sponsors to participate in the program. If interested, call Becky Rouner at 521-4660.

Sporting Clay champs crowned

The Oklahoma FFA Sporting Clays State Shoot was held recently at the Oklahoma City Gun Club.

The team champion in the senior division (open from eighth through 12th grades) was Keota while Nic Meador of Sapulpa was the top shooter.

Keota's David Henson and Queston Reed were second and third. Newcastle was runner-up in the team competition and Sharon Mutual was third.

In the junior division (eighth through 10th grades only), Blair won the team trophy with Boone-Apache and Fort Supply finishing second and third.

Jordan Littrell of Boone-Apache was the individual champion in juniors. Trace Woolfolk of Fort Supply was second and Josh McQuown of Glencoe placed third.
