There is a couple threads here with deer camp pictures and I noticed some camp signs. For me it would be interesting to learn the background on the names.

For example there is one camp name "Chickenbuck Camp" that shows up frequently, perhaps we can get the story on it and other camp names.

My deer camp name is Mill Springs Camp. The genesis of the name
is due to several springs on the property, one of which we draw water from for drinking and bathing. This spring empties into a tributary of a stream that once had 6 waterpowered mills on it.

Piped spring water.

That's a good name, great pictures too.

Ok I'll explain camp chickenbuck for those that don't know.

This little guy was 3 when we were building our camp in 2007.



He was right there with us as we built the cabin. He had (has) quite the imagination.

He began telling stories of forest creatures that only he could see. The most famous and first of which was a “chickenbuck”.

I nearly lost it the first time he told me about the chickenbuck. It’s just what it sounds like, part chicken and part white tail buck.

One evening at camp it was just me and little Joe and I got curious about the checkenbuck so I started asking him more about it. We sat at the table with a pen and paper and with his help we scratched out the first artist’s rendering of the creature.

We then drew it out on a piece of scrap plywood which we nailed to a tree by our property gate later on. The name just stuck.



Since that time there have been several artistic offerings of the chickenbuck by members of the campfire.





There is also a creature out there called the “giant swamp squid”



And of course the “Flying bear” which I am personally quite terrified of.



There is also the “leopard squirrel” who will “lep on you”, so watch out for that too.

Over the years the camp name found it’s way onto furniture, targets, hats, shirts, and even some skin shocked
