Williams Boys Have Special Weekend at Deer Camp

The first thing that popped into my mind after spending time at the camp this weekend with three special fellows was a song by the late Don Williams. Entitled “Good Old Boys Like Me”, the song has a line that triggered my creative juices into action.

From his velvety mellow throat came the words….”And those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me….Hank and Tennessee.”

After what happened down at Two Creeks hunting club this weekend, I’m paraphrasing Don Williams words. Instead of Hank Williams and Tennessee Williams my focus is on three other Williams boys, Chester, Byron and Brandon.”

Chester is the patriarch of the group. Byron is his son and Brandon his grandson. All three downed impressive bucks this weekend on Two Creeks hunting club in Jackson Parish. Byron was the first when he downed a big 8 point weighing 200-plus pounds Thursday with his 45-70 primitive firearm.

Persistence and Determination By The Tigers Shows On The Scoreboard

The persistence of the young Winnfield Senior High School Tiger football team, and their efforts to refine their skills and eliminate errors, paid off last Thursday. The game against the Lakeview High School Gators from Campti, was originally scheduled for Friday, but was played early, in anticipation of severe thunderstorms.

Even with the one-game suspension of five of the Tiger players, as a result of an on-field altercation at Holy Savior Menard the prior week, the Tigers showed up and showed out. Some of the younger players stepped up and openings on the field were filled, and the performance was one that won’t soon be forgotten.

Supersititions Spice Up Hunting

Do you want to get skunked on your next fishing trip? Don’t you dare catch a fish on your first cast. If you do, you’ll have lousy success the rest of the day. It’s best to make your first cast out near the boat where no bass could possibly be lurking and reel it quickly before a fish sees it.

With deer seasons open, you’ll probably be exposed to traditions with which most of us are familiar. You probably remember your first deer and what happened soon after your deer was retrieved. You got blood from your deer smeared on your face because that’s what we do when someone, especially a youngster, bags his first deer.

Have you ever missed a deer and your hunting companions know you missed? You were relieved of the tail of your shirt; it’s probably still hanging on the wall at the camp along with those shirttails of others who missed deer.

Youngsters Successful on Youth Deer Hunts

For decades, wildlife agencies around the country are giving youngsters an edge in getting them interested in deer hunting. In Louisiana, a youth hunt is scheduled one week prior to opening day for the remainder of hunters.

For this special hunt, it’s the adults who tag along as they accompany, coach and assist youngsters who are the only ones allowed to pack a firearm. Sometimes the little guys just get to enjoy being out in the deer stand with dad or granddad watching nature do what nature does. Other times, opportunities are presented where the teaching and instructions of the adults get real. That’s when a deer steps out and it’s game-on.

Youth season took place last Saturday and two successful hunts have come to my attention. Breyden Freeman and Wyatt Chandler are a couple of youngsters who had the opportunity to stand over their trophies after following instructions their grown-up coaches told them to do.

Double Blessing for Howell on the Deer Stand

They say the Lord works in mysterious ways. For 30 year old James Howell, divine intervention came into play twice last week.

“I try to be a Godly guy and I can’t help but believe He blessed me twice last week while deer hunting on my lease near St. Francisville in W. Feliciana Parish,” Howell said.

On the one hand, Howell who makes his home in Breaux Bridge, was able on the morning of October 4, to put the crosshairs of his Ten Point Venom crossbow on a beautiful 8 point velvet buck that measured 135 inches of velvety bone.
