Most Dangerous Game Argumentation Paragraph The story, “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell is about Sanger Rainsford ends up on an island with General Zaroff, who hunts humans. Rainsford ends up playing General Zaroff’s game and becomes the huntee while Zaroff is the hunter. Zaroff loses the game and gets killed by Rainsford.
Rainsford is a competitive hunter just like Zaroff so there is a possibility he killed Zaroff because he is stubborn and wanted to win, which would lead him to be guilty and have a more intense punishment. In the end I think even if it was for survival rainsford will have to serve some jail time for his actions. I believe Rainsford should serve some jail time because he did push Zaroff’s body off the window and let the dogs eat his flesh, pushing Zaroff’s body off was unnecessary but the actually murder has its own punishments. Do you think he should be in jail for murdering Zaroff even if it was for his own protection? , keep in mind that Rainsford would be guilty for many things he has done as

The theme of "Hunter Safety" by Jeff Johnson is to not be conceited and over-exaggerate your abilities. " Plus, I 'm a good shot... Give me the trophy now..."

He does give his prey weapons to fight with, but they are not strong enough weapons to help them fight back. He informs Rainsford of what weapons his prey gets when he first says “I give him a supply of food and an excellent hunt knife” (Connell 28). This may seem good, but really it is unfair because General Zaroff hunts with a pistol. A gun will most likely win every time, but Rainsford was very smart and knew just what to do because he was also a very skilled hunter. Rainsford also knew where to hide and how to cover up his tracks so it would be harder to find him.
Benedict Arnold’s name lives in disgrace. He stands as the American symbol of treason, yet he was brilliant, and without his military genius the country would have lost the war.

His treason has erased much of his glory.

The Great Hunt Hunting good because it keeps control of the animal population. However in the story Zaroff uses hunting in a bad way. Rainsford was on a boat and then fell off the boat.

Some things may seem unethical from a far in war but, bad happens, and with an enemies push you can 't pull, you have to push back, but stronger. I’ve noticed some say that being a sniper is cowardly, but I disagree. He stopped others from killing the people on his side, making them able to continue. Unfortunately Chris’ brave run in life ended in 2013, when a former marine shot and killed him at a gun range. (Aldrich, Ian) Chris may mainly be remembered for shooting an enemy from an unbelievable 2,100 yards away, or a call he made when an unaware child was holding a weapon that threatend his people, but in all honesty, he should be remembered for the strength, nobility, and bravery he showed, not his stats.
