Description: 

The "big bottom" where Ike shot his first buck was a large tract of wilderness inside Yoknapatawpha, "only thirty miles from Jefferson" (273). The "house" within it, Major de Spain's hunting camp, was the gathering point for the men who shot deer and bear (273). But its woods, "the great cypress" and "the tremendous trunks," disappeared decades ago (273), which means that the hunters have to travel further each year to reach a suitable hunting ground.
