The First Hunt Imagine having the feeling of complete serenity as you lay still waiting; listening to every broken stick, crushed leaf, and bird chirp. Waiting for the footsteps of a deer or the image of one in the distance to fill your veins with adrenaline which gives you that feeling you dream about. All this leading up to one pull of a trigger, sending a message to your brain that tells you you’ll be a hunter for the rest of your life. This image was a very important part of my life. My brother started hunting when he was around 12 or 13 years old with my dad and I was too young to hunt. It all started with only being able to go out with them and watch them shoot deer, rabbits, turkey, and birds. I was always anxious to be able to do it myself because I thought I would be good at it and enjoy it. All I had was a pellet gun, and I was limited to showing my skills shooting by shooting bottle caps from a distance. I loved impressing my dad with my shots and looked forward to showing him how I could hunt when I was of age. Eventually I was 12 years old , got my hunting license, and a permit and that November I was ready for my first hunt. That weekend I went down to my dad’s it was all preparation. We had a checklist to make sure the night before we had everything laid out for us in the morning. We needed gloves, pants, shirts, coats, ammo, flashlight, seats, and of course the rifle. We couldn’t afford to forget anything in the morning because there was no turning back for once we got started. I could hardly sleep that night because I was so excited. My dad woke me up at 4:30 a.m. to get ready and so it began. We got dressed and gathered all the essentials to go hunting.
My father and I hopped into his little blue truck which was no stranger to a tornado. It was beat up, dented, scratched, but it ran like a champ. We drove to a friend of my dad’s property…...

A Hunt for a Kill

...A Hunt for a Killer A common night on my favorite bar. The bar “Bourbon for men “I usually drink there. Yesterday I bought some pills from a guy on the street. He said that I should try them in clean bourbon. I’m going to try that. I crushed the pills with my glass. I poured the pill-dust in my glass. I drank the whole shit. I called for another bourbon. When I got it I looked down. Black tar was pouring op from the glass. I closed my eyes and shaked my head. I could not believe what I just saw. It was just a hallucination. It seemed so real. I had to get some fresh air. I rushed out from the bar and found the nearest bench. My head was killing me. It must have been the damn pills! I woke up. In an old dungeon. I got up quickly. It had to be a hallucination. No it wasn’t. I touched the cell door. Pushing it carefully. I took a peek outside the door. Nothing to see down the hallway just a faint light escaped from the ceiling. I grabbed a stone brick for defense. I stepped out on the hallway. I looked carefully around but which way should I go? left or right? On the left there was nothing but complete darkness and I didn’t have a flashlight. The right path there was at least a faint light. I headed right. I had been walking for at least 10 minutes that had to be the god damn longest hallway ever! I should probably check the cell doors for supplies. Nothing in any of the cells. I had no choice but to keep moving. I finally reached a door that was different from the others.......

Hunts' Story

...based on two real life oil princes, Herbert and Bunker Hunt. The Duke brothers fictional corner of the orange juice futures market was meant to mimic the Hunt’s perceived corner of the silver market in the late seventies to early eighties. During this time period, the Hunts accumulated mass quantities of physical and futures positions in silver. The unrealized profits generated slowly grew to a peak of around $3.5 billion dollars over about seven years. It took mere months for that gain to turn into a bankrupting multi-billion dollar loss. We aim to show that poor risk management led to these losses. Sadly, the Hunts received multiple signals to exit their position with handsome profits. Instead, they madly added to their silver stocks without regard to potential future shocks to the market. This was despite the fact that the regulators intervened and started creating a bearish reality for silver. . This paper also intends to question whether this was a true manipulation or just another sad tale of a beautiful investment idea crushed by over exuberance and leverage. Ultimately, the Hunt’s brother’s greed clouded their better judgment just like when poor Mortimer clamored for the exchange to be opened as his brother laid in agony on the floor. First, we will look at the motivations behind the Hunts bullish position in silver. Figure 1 shows that global inflation was a major concern during their early life. The Hunts believed runaway inflation would mark the end......

A Hunt

...informed as he came home. Yes it was the time when I could see my father in action and how good of a hunter he actually was. I was very excited as it was going to be my first hunting experience. We had planned to hunt wild geese in a place called Baloki. The next morning a thrill of anticipation ran through me as I opened my eyes. I quickly packed up and saw my father preparing all the huge guns for the hunt. So we finally departed from Lahore for Baloki. The way my brother and cousins had described the place made me eager to go there. That is why I had been irritating everyone by asking “Are we there yet.” After two hours we finally reached the river bank. When I saw it there were no words to describe it. It was as beautiful as heaven. There was a river bank from where you could see the blue water of the magnificent river Ravi. So after unloading our cars we finally setup camp and it was finally time to rest our legs. After a few hours of rest we took out our guns and started skeet shooting. I was very impressed by everyone’s aim. And I was even more lucky when my father came up to me and handed me the gun. As I held the gun I could feel my heart pump faster and faster. I had felt this extreme sensational feeling which was out of this world. Then I finally pulled the trigger. I missed the shot but still it was the first time I ever held a gun in my hand. I felt more of a man rather than a boy. I just felt great. The next day we finally woke up and it was time for the......

The Hunt

...The Hunt “Annabel, Annabel I know it’s late but can you tell us another story? “ “As you said its late and your sister is already sleeping, moreover…” before I could finish my sentence, she looked at me with her big shiny blue eyes ready to fill up with tears and said: “Please Annabel please I promise I’ll be sleeping after the story, just a short one please.” How could you say no to that innocent small angel? “Okay, okay just be quite because you will wake up your sister.” I whispered. She smiled and her beautiful blue eyes shined with happiness again. *** It was winter. Snow was falling, so much like stars. Drifting against the windows, politely begging entrance and then falling with disappointment to the ground. It was magical. My house was north from the small village, so close to the woods. The woods were lovely, dark and deep. Every year we went there with my family, so my father can go hunting in the woods. Every year I was asking myself ‘Is hunting wrong?’. I finally figured that hunting is not necessarily wrong. Besides, as far as I am concerned, the motive makes the difference. I told my father that for first and maybe last time, I will go and hunt with him. I was in the woods early in the morning, before sunshine. The snow was endless, a heavy blanket on the outdoors; it had a way about it. A beauty. But I knew that, like many things, beauty could be dangerous. I was a hunter before I went to the woods and didn't even know it. A certain......
