Description: 

The woods in which Young Bayard, Johnny and Caspey hunted small game as children, and in which Bayard and Caspey can still hunt, is at the back of the Sartoris plantation, "behind" Uncle Henry's cabin and past at least one crop field. There are vines on many of the saplings and trees, and a creek runs through them. It seems likely that the spring "flowing from the roots of a beech" where Old Bayard sought refuge when he was a child was also in these woods (90).
