A NICE VIEW OF A SMALL BUNCH OF DEER
By S. C. Turnbo


One who was born and reared in Marion County, Ark., furnished the writer this account. "I have met several herds of deer in the hills of Marion County, especially on Trimble Creek," said Mr. William Trimble, son of Allin Trimble, "But the most charming sight of deer I ever had of deer was one morning before sunrise in 1867 while I and my brother, Milt Trimble, were living on the old Asa Yocum farm opposite Bull Bottom when 14 deer come out of the forest into the lane and stopped at the salt lick near the house where Mr. Yocum had salted his cattle and horses for several years. Though it was common to meet deer bunched together in the hills but the sight of so many of them entering a lane so near a dwelling house was rarely met with."
