Secret Rules Committee Meets
Devil's Island, MS> In the hidden chambers underneath the camphouse of the famous Christmas Place Hunting Club a meeting of the secret and select Executive Committee met to revise the camp rules for the coming year. Flickering candles and Ezra Brooks whiskey helped keep an air of importance and propriety to the solemn occassion.One lawyerly member screamed "We have to do something! Those damn Stewarts are killing all the big deer!" This member was restrained until his eyes came back into focus. Another member said " There aren't anymore big deer on the whole place, thanks to the damn Deer Camp Blog!" A swift slap to the head brought him back to his senses, as a hooded figure holding a blackjack grinned and whacked him a few more times just because he needed it.
Rules were brought up and ideas exchanged to try to keep anyone from killing a deer except Paul and Trent. All were shot down by the other two members who were holding guns. Finally, a rule was passed to make each member completely responsible for their guest. This would include size and restrictions on deer. Each member to be responsible for at least 4 does to be removed and a minimum antler restriction of 15 inches on a second deer or an 18 inch beam. No one was happy at the end of the meeting, so they must have done something right.
