double bunks plus a kitchen and a bath which wasn't finished at the time. They had a chick sales out back plus an old telephone booth which served the same purpose. Later we added electricity and water. There were sixteen shares in the club and I bought a share. The first year I hunted with this group I got my buck in the morning and shot one for Leo Sutter in the afternoon. The most memorable time happened when Roman Sutter and I hunted together. We each found a stump to sit on and for a while there was no activity. Suddenly I heard a deer crashing through the brush toward me. I stood up and readied my gun but the buck saw me and turned directly away from me. I fired several times and wasn't sure whether I had hit him or not. Roman came over and we followed the direction he was going in and found him laying still. We checked him carefully and couldn't find any blood anywhere. Roman said: "Carl you must have scared him to death, I can't see any bullet hole anywhere." When we dressed him out we did not find any bullet hole in his hide but a bullet had blown up in his chest cavity. Frank Clark who lived down the street stopped at our house one day and asked me if I would like to go fishing some Saturday after- noon. I told him I didn't have much in the way of fishing equipment but I would like to go fishing. Frank and I went fishing together many times on Saturday afternoons and we always caught fish, mostly Perch, Blue Gills, and an occasional Black Bass. Frank made a study where the fish were on Lake Mendota and kept a map to show their movements. Eventually I bought a used boat and Grace and I went fishing, mostly on Lake Mendota.
