Description: 

The hunting and fishing camp owned by Major de Spain on the south bank of the large bend of the river is where the men from Jefferson and other parts of Yoknapatawpha go to hunt deer and the occasional bear in the surrounding woods. The camp is unpopulated apart from during the hunting season for a few days in the fall, until Sam Fathers settles there and builds a little house, after which Major de Spain and the narrator's father leave their hunting dogs and horses with him permanently.
