My summers were spent here fishing and bird hunting in the 60's. My grandfather, John Storey and Claude Ayres built ''the Hut'' a fishing, hunting and drinking lodge next to the lake. It was a real male retreat; the wives, Rubye and Maurine would rarely visit. One a year they would host a huge dove hunt with a 100 or more hunters. Says ROBERT STOREY WILSON
