Bella Murphy, 10, of Oklahoma City caught this 5-pound largemouth bass last month out of a pond near Crescent.
The couple that hunts together, stays together. Curt and Jan Greer of Tuttle both bagged gobblers on a hunting in the Oklahoma Panhandle on April 18. The husband and wife tanden took the turkeys within 30 seconds of each other. "My turkey is a Rio and Curt’s is a Miriam," Jan said. "We had heard gobbling all morning and were able to get the toms to respond to our calls. However, they had their hens and weren’t interested in coming to our calls. About 11 a.m., a friend we were hunting with, James Newman, suggested we move to the south because he had seen two toms with several hens and a jake heading our way. We were able to move and cut them off. We had just sat down on the edge of a ravine when the jake appeared and almost busted us. Luckily there was a patch of bare grass between us and we were able to be still long enough to convince him that there was nothing there. Then he entered the ravine with the other birds. Curt had his box call in his vest and was able to reach down and call softly. This was all it took to grab the interest of the two toms. The first tom appeared and I was able to take him and Curt was able to take the second bird."
Beth Allgood of Lawton poses with her permit, which completed her Super Grand Slam (permit,snook, tarpon and bonefish) while fly fishing in Mexico in Ascension Bay out of Casa Blanca Lodge. "She appears to be the only lady angler to accomplish this from this lodge," said her husband, Richard Allgood.
