In the short stories “A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury and “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, both main characters are great, experienced and risky hunters. Travis from “A Sound of Thunder” takes people through a time machine back in time to hunt dinosaurs. General Zaroff from “The Most Dangerous Game” has found a new interest instead of hunting animals, and he now hunts people. Both of these stories involve hunting out of the ordinary things and show why each character chooses to do so.

I have passion in my life Mr. Rainsford, and it is to hunt.” (Connell 221-222) Then the reason why rainsford stayed was because he probably wanted to hear what he said about his book or just because he read it which was not smart that rainsford was not thinking and he didn 't know anything about him or what he does besides hunt he probably thinks that General Zaroff is a very good and handsome man. Think that Zaroff is a very intelligent man and is controlling because that 's all he does is drags them in and then takes them out, which means that he is going to kill them and not tell anyone of his family or else.
