My cousin, Jason Sampson, will be my guide and hunting partner for the weekend. We are going to be hunting on Hickory Creek Wildlife Management Area and some private land.

Last weekend was the youth season in many counties, and my buddy, Dean Armstrong, took his son, Jacob, on a hunt. The day was special because it was Jacobâ€™s 14th birthday.
Dean bought a Double Cross call from Stephen Billy of Poteau, and used it to call in a gobbler for Jacob to kill for his birthday bird.
The Poteau Chip-In Club will have a golf benefit beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday at Choctaw Country Club.
The event was originally scheduled March 23, but was postponed due to inclement weather.
The entry fee for the three-person scramble is $30 per player.
All proceeds will go to the Poteau High School golf programs to help with travel expenses, indoor training facility and golf outerwear.
For more information or to sign up, call the pro shop at (918) 647-3488.

Howe 7, Cameron 6, 10 inn.; Howe 8, Sallisaw-Central 3; Cameron 7, Sallisaw-Central 4: In Sallisaw, the Lady Lions got a pair of wins in the three-game festival.

IDABEL â€” Three Heavener Wolves were able to hit the links Tuesday before the rain hit at the Valliant Invitational at the Idabel Country Club.
Jackson Long shot an 86, and likely will finish in the top 15 but not high enough to medal.
