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.

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.

They were completely unaware of us.
