Muskogee Police Sergeant CB Abel, Officer Jeramie Garcia and Cherokee Nation Marshal Mike Reece spent quality time with several children from the Murrow Youth Home over the weekend hunting deer, thanks to an unnamed property owner and three sponsors: George W. Abel, James L. Abel and Todd Rackley.
The officers and children scouted for a day before the hunt and picked their prospective hunting locations, then the children were picked up before daylight and taken to the stand sites. The first deer was taken around 7:30 a.m., the second around 8 and the third around noon.
Meanwhile, officers and children sat around the campfire and enjoyed a big breakfast, which was provided by the landowner. The deer were taken for processing, and will be delivered to the hunters and their families when processing is complete. The sponsors paid for clothing needs, license fees and processing for the hunters.
The children were not identified due to privacy concerns.
