The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has extended the deadline for the agency's guided youth waterfowl hunts to Nov. 21.

The youth hunts are open to hunters ages 12 to 15 who have completed the hunter education course. An adult guardian must accompany the youth hunter.

Guided hunts are available at the Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge, Fort Gibson Waterfowl Refuge, Fort Cobb State Park, Okmulgee Wildlife Management Area (WMA), Packsaddle WMA, Vann's Lake and Wister Lake Refuge.

For more information, call Jeff Neal at ODWC at 396-2503 or email


An Oklahoma City angler caught a 55.8-pound blue catfish Tuesday at Lake Hefner that is the new lake record.

Burt Hudson caught the big blue on a rod and reel below the dam on Tuesday.

Hudson's fish was 14 pounds heavier than the previous Hefner blue cat record, caught last year at the dam.

Hudson released the fish back into the lake. Lucky Lure Tackle, 9427 N. May, is the official record keeper for Lake Hefner.


The 89er Chapter of Trout Unlimited will meet Tuesday in the Tom Steed Center, Room 205, at Rose State College.

It will be the annual business meeting of the chapter. Officers and board members will be elected, and there will be updates on future chapter and national activities.

For more information, call Chuck Kaminski at 734-0283.
