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.
