This seemed logical enough to me. It would be my first bona fide experience tracking game, and at least would be a good way to get warm. As I later realized, it would also change me in a decisive, if barely discernable and perhaps not altogether logical, way. I had always imagined animal tracks as rather like an Ariadne's thread, leading unerringly to the heart of some mystery. Yet had Ariadne's thread been so tangled as the trail we were following now, Theseus might never Page 15 have found his way out of that maze.
The idea of thus easing oneself into killing troubles me. It implies a hierarchy of values that makes the death of a rabbit or squirrel somehow less significant than that of an elk or a bear. I cannot watch the death-arrested flight of a duck or a pheasant without an inner pang. Should the day come when I could, I would never shoulder a shotgun again. My first kill was a mule deer buck. It had seemed a long time coming. Because it would be a year or two before I had a rifle of my own, Doug and I shared a gunhis Browning semi-auto.

We stood there, glassing the area, seeing no movement anywhere. Then Doug, who was standing nearer the edge than I, eased back and wordlessly pointed straight down. I crept up and peered over the rock ledge. There, fifty or so yards directly below, were a buck and a doe. They may or may not have been the ones we had been stalking. They were completely unaware of us.
