5.0 out of 5 stars The Hunt by Janice Daugharty February 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"The Hunt" by Janice Daugharty I found to be a humorous story. It has its serious moments, but the funniest passages in this short story about two men and a teenaged boy going on a cat-hunt are the physical descriptions of the characters. The truck comes in as a close second.

Rick is a young teenaged boy, along with brother Nathan, whose mother died in a car crash nearly two years ago. Their father, a famed heart surgeon in South Georgia, remarried Jill, a pretty woman who does her best to care for the family and told the boys she could never be their mother, but would do her best. Jill's father was very wealthy, also, owning a vast amount of property and went by the name of Country. Country was taking Rick cat-hunting overnight along with Country's friend, Stub.

Country showed up bright and early for Rick in his truck with the loud-barking dogs in the back, and Rick hurried to get his clothes on to get out to the truck in time because they had to pick up Stub. Stub was by the door, "One arm with no hand, like a flipper, clamping a stuffed black canvas bag, the other hand holding his rifle at a safe angle. He was tall, wiry and quick but alarmingly thin, tiny brown jeans hugging slim hips and legs like stilts." Country was the opposite of Stub. "Country's gut in a worn white T-shirt and over-shirt of green twill sat on his short legs. No lap and no neck."

Rick rocked the door on the truck a few times to get it to shut, and there was no rubber around it so it made such a racket closing that it practically woke up the whole neighborhood. Country took off in the old truck and soon enough made a left turn with no signal or brakes. It crossed Rick's mind that maybe the truck didn't even have brakes.

More About the Author

See for sample writings and more on me.

Fans will notice over a dozen short stories by me for sale in the Kindle Store. Though self-published, these stories are not file-dregs nor practice writing, but carefully written and edited works of short fiction that have been previously published in the finest lit journals; some picked up by annual and other anthologies. As with my novels, both ebook and print, I frequently offer my stories for free, at all online book sites, as introductions to my longer works of fiction.

Please check my author's pages everywhere for what's free and new; I try to often refresh my offerings.Also,I have a new novel, "Morning Shades," coming out soon from my current publisher BelleBooks.

Contact me via Facebook; I love hearing from you.

Hunting, fishing, living..
Not being a hunter, I can't reply to your 'if you like to be alone, then you're a poacher' theory. However, I am an avid fisherman and can reply in that context.
I have been fishing since I was 4yrs old. I'm 31. I love it. Almost as much as the Browns..but thats a different thread.. Anyhow,... Read More
