Hill Billy aimed his gun up in the tree at the coon, BOOM, a 12 gauge shot rang throughout the river bottom. As soon as that coon hit the ground another one came running past Hill Billy and Camo followed. Hill Billy finally came to the tree in which the coon was tree 'd in.

That’s one thing with having a place out on the prairie: plenty of time to go get a shotgun. “What can I do for you stranger?” yelled the rancher while they were still maybe 70 yards apart. The shotgun was propped against the well, hidden from view. But it was within easy reach.

The Hunt It was a gloomy September day and the bear hunting season was about to begin. The old farm truck was loaded full with barrels of cooking grease, assorted candy, birdseed and tubes of sticky frosting. We were to hunt four hours north in a little town called Orr, Minnesota. My family had an 80 acre lot that we used strictly for hunting. My mom volunteered to sit in the stand with me and videotape the hunt.
The first day if hunting we went into the Black Hills and did a lot if walking to find some deer. When we finally found some my brother was the first to shoot, since he picked the bigger straw out of three, which was how we decided who gets to shoot first, he missed. So I was next up and when we saw another deer it was really far away and it took my seven shits before I killed it. It wasn't even worth trying to kill it because it was just a fawn and I wasted seven shots killing it and that was the end of day one.
