Hunter or hunted?



On the final day of hunting season, two hunters perch in a deer stand and wait for their target. They begin to discuss past experiences, and one hunter reveals a surprising secret. What happens in the deer stand? How does the revelation cause both hunters to act? Describe the weather, the landscape and the condition of the deer stand. Take advantage of the setting’s natural isolation.
