    Edwin Edwards, Jr. remembers...
    My father killed many deer, in and out of season. He, like all too many in this world, believed that laws were made for everybody ELSE and did not apply to him. My poor mother loathed the killing of all the deer, legal or otherwise, that Dad brought home. What my father did not know was that over the years he ate very little of his kill. He had three hunting dogs. My mother fed most of the venison to them and they loved it. What my father got was good beef with, possibly a scrap or two of venison stirred in. "Ah, Corinne," he would say as he helped himself to second servings, "there's nothing like good venison." "Yes, dear, nothing like it." my mother would reply. If, after my mother's death, his second wife ever served him venison, he must have wondered at the strange taste!
