Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

An unspecified number of white men are present at Major de Spain’s annual hunting camp in "A Bear Hunt." Ratliff comments indirectly on the size of the group, saying he was not surprised that Luke Provine would be there because "this here would be the biggest present gathering of men in the county, let alone the free eating and whisky" (68). As alluded to in the title, some may be bear hunters, while others are referred to by Major de Spain as "shotgun fellows on the deer stands" (68). When not hunting, the camaraderie of camp life includes eating, drinking, and playing poker.
