1944 Coyote Hunters
My dad (Gene McGill) use to hunt coyotes in northwest Oklahoma with his buddies in his earlier years. Perhaps you heard of some of coyote hunting stories or knew of someone who hunted with Gene a long time ago.
Comments:Down Cherokee way coyote hunting was one of the two novel uses for light aircraft I remember from my childhood in the '40s. The other was Sunday morning delivery of the Sunday Oklahoman. The airplane would fly low over the house, and drop the paper in the driveway. You will remember that the Gaylord family had a fully integrated news operation in Oklahoma City. They owned the Daily Oklahoman and Oklahoma City Times, WKY radio and WKY TV. Their Mistletoe Express delivered papers state-wide. So it's no surprise that the comics were read on the radio every Sunday morning. Radio announcers at WKY were considered part of show business, so they each had a stage name. The guy who read the Sunday funnies had a uniquely memorable and elegant name -- Wakefield Holley. ~Al Weigand 2008-05-19 10:50:36
