Two Osage veterans receive full season deer hunting positions at ON Ranch

The Osage Nation Ranch Board LLC issued two Osage veteran full season deer hunting positions this year.

On Sept. 13, the ON Ranch LLC announced James Estes and Thomas Childers were awarded the deer hunting positions at no charge. Both men were the only two veterans to apply since the Osage veteran hunting positions were advertised in August.

Childers is a Vietnam War Army veteran and Estes is retired from the U.S. Marine Corps, said Amanda Kendrick-Bartenhagen, business manager for the ON Ranch. Applicants for the Osage veteran hunting positions are required to provide proof of ON membership and veteran status when applying.
