I was taught to cast a fishing line and how to handle a 12 gauge shotgun by my father and my Uncle Joe. We’d spend countless hours fishing for trout, but most of our time went towards duck hunting and it is still the best way for me to relax and clear my mind. Duck hunting is a very social kind of hunt and that means it calms my spirit. Hunters experience nature in such a way that they become part of it, and when that experience is shared with another human, it forms a bond like no other. Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had took place sitting in a duck blind, waiting for the ducks to fly overhead.
The mallard slowed its flapping wings and cupped them to slow down to land. Right before it landed, I let out one loud shot and dropped it on the spot. It dropped about ten feet out of the air and hit the water with a loud smack, causing a big splash. The duck I had killed was gorgeous. It was a fully-grown mallard drake.

I am a mid 20’s man that lives in the country. I love to duck hunt; If there was anything that I could do all day everyday it would be duck hunting. When I was a young boy I started to duck hunt and it just stayed with me after that and now that is my life and I love to duck hunt with a passion. To me there isn’t anything better to do than duck hunt. If I could have a job duck hunting I would do it in a heartbeat.

She had not grown up that much yet, she was not able to understand how life worked between humans, animals, and insect like Jem did, but she knew he was changing. “Jem was scowling. It was probably a part of the stage he was going through, and I wished he would hurry up and get through it. He was certainly never cruel to animals, but I had never known his charity to embrace the insect world.” (Chapter 25) She began to see some new parts of Jem, which made she think Jem considering too much like a girl.
yelled Hill Billy. “I think i scraped my leg on a tree limb or something”. Hill Billy looked down at his legs and to his surprise was wading in the water in which the cottonmouth snakes breed.

According to Humane for Pets, every year “five in ten dogs are euthanized simply because the shelter has no one to adopt them.” With millions of animals entering the shelter each year and only a fraction of them actually getting adopted its essential that we start focusing on shelter animals and adopt don’t shop. This is just a small fragment of a bigger picture depicting the significance of adoption. When adopting a dog people need to be aware and educated about the choices that they make, ensuring that they are adopting for the right reasons. Along with that people need to think about breeders and the negative impact that surround buying from them. It’s more than just adopting a dog and being done with it.
Eventually, Mr. Peacock started to run. “Ha ha ha! You can’t catch me!” yelled Mr. Peacock. Rory was so outraged that he forgot what he was doing and ran after Mr. Peacock. Unfortunately, he was running toward the plum bush, which Farmer Brown had hired a witch to cast a spell on it, so it will sneeze to deter foxes.
While playing with her cow, Sylvia “only laughed when she came upon Mistress Moolly at the swampside, and urged her affectionately homeward with a twig of birch leaves” (196). As Mrs. Tilley and the hunter discuss about birds, the hunter replies, “Oh no, they’re stuffed and preserved, dozens and dozens of them...and I have shot or snared every one myself” (199). Then the hunter makes a deal that he “ would give ten dollars to anybody as to find that heron’s nest...and [he means] to spend my whole vacation hunting for it if need be” (199). While wandering in the woods with the hunter, Sylvia “ could not understand why [the hunter] killed the very birds he seemed to like so much” (199). Sylvia’s relationship with her cow demonstrates her love of nature since her isolation taught her to appreciate it.
