Osage youth bag bucks in annual hunt on Lost Creek Ranch

The hunt is held every year via a lottery

Apparently for the first time, Osage youths bagged not one but two bucks during the annual fall hunt in October.

One of the lucky hunters was Lyndee Revard, a 12-year-old from Dewey who spent several nights scoping out the hunting area at Lost Creek Ranch with her big brother Chase, 21, according to her grandfather, Ron Revard.

“We were just thrilled,” Revard said. “It was an 11-pointer. We were told that in three years no kid had ever killed a buck.”

The other Osage youth who killed a buck was Cooper Brim, a 17-year-old from Bartlesville, according to a relative, who sent a Facebook message to the Osage News. Cooper bagged an 10-point buck. He is the son of Mark and Carla Brim and a member of the Caney Valley varsity baseball team.

Details about the hunt were not forthcoming. The Osage ranch manager did not respond to several inquiries over two weeks and the Osage LLC board member in charge of Lost Creek did not respond to an email on Nov. 2. The LLC has adopted a practice of not speaking to the Osage News’ reporter who covers it, according to people familiar with the situation.

Revard said that Lyndee is proud of her Osage and Delaware heritage and participates in dances and other cultural activities. He said she is also a member of the National Honor Society and is a “heckuva volleyball player” who travels around the country to compete. She has also run track and played golf at Bartlesville Middle School and performed gymnastics with the ConocoPhillips Gymnastics Club. Revard said that he was told 18 kids applied for seven spots in the hunt, which is in its third year for the Osage Nation but its first year at Lost Creek, a ranch near Okesa where former Major League pitcher Brad Penny built a hunting lodge that the Nation now owns.

She loves diving in-depth into just about any topic but is especially fond of covering legal issues, perhaps because her parents were both lawyers. She is married to Assistant Principal Chief Raymond Red Corn, who enticed her to move to the Osage Reservation in 2004. She and her husband live south of Pawhuska with one extremely large dog named Max, one extremely energetic dog named Pepper, and, if he bothers to make an appearance, a surly cat named Stinky.
