The Hunt of a Lifetime
It was the day after Christmas and I was practicing with the goose call I'd opened the
morning before. The phone rang and I yelled, "I got it," to my mom as I ran to pick it up.
"Hello;" I answered secretly wishing that it was a girl from school. My butterflies
settled as the reply I got was "sup dude," It was my friend Jon, he wanted to know if I
could come over and shoot his new .22. I went and asked my mom if I could. She agreed to
give me a ride as long as I picked up all the wrapping paper that was left scattered from
the morning before. It was the fastest I'd ever moved as I ran about picking up every
scrap of paper that I could find. Mom finally approved my clean up job, and we were off to
Jon's.

As we pulled into his driveway Jon ran out to meet us, .22 in hand, he was ready to shoot.
I hopped out and thanked my mom for the ride. We decide that our best chance of finding
something to kill would be at Jon's family farm. Jon went in to get some bullets and
before long we were headed across the neighbor's field on Jon's four wheeler. We got to
the farm and parked the four wheeler by the shop. There was a twisting gravel road that
led to the creek and fields below. We began walking down the road and as we rounded the
last corner I grabbed Jon by the shirt and pulled him back. "Geese," I whispered into his
ear. He nodded in understanding, and we both slowly poked our heads around the corner. We
looked at each other and turned silently, heading back to the shop. We immediately found
Ken, Jon's dad and told him what we had seen. We asked if he would take us hunting the
next morning. He thought about it for a bit, but decided he needed to work. We called my
dad, hoping that he didn't need to work. He told us that he needed to work too. Jon and I
sat down on a bench in the shop, bummed out that we weren't going to get to go hunting.
After a while Ken was walking by and turned, saying, "hey you guys are responsible enough,
why don't you go hunting by yourselves." We looked at each other, this would be our first
hunting trip alone. Little did we know, this would be the hunt that would never leave our
memories, igniting a passion for hunting that will never be extinguished.

There wasn't much sleep that night as we sat awake in Jon's room, planning out every
detail of the next morning. I sprang to life as the alarm clock sounded. Jon was already
half dressed as I pulled on my waders. We loaded all our decoys in the back of a gaiter
and headed for the field. Over night a fog had set in. You couldn't see the stars and
visibility was only about twenty feet. Right as we got to the field it started hailing.
Big chunks of white ice falling so hard that they stung and left welts. We pulled our
parkas tighter and tightened the drawstrings on our hoods, doing all we could to hide from
the painful hail. We stopped instantly with a thump, and I slammed into the dash. We had
hit a sink hole, the gaiter was stuck. We were only a hundred yards from where we needed
to setup. We decided to carry our gear the rest of the way.

We trudged through the ankle deep sloppy mud for what seemed like miles. Finally we were
at our spot and I heaved my load on the ground. The wind began to howl across the field.
Now the hail was coming sideways and we had to look down to keep the stinging pellets from

Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value. They did not want to believe his novel represented the truth about World War I. In many ways, such people were like Paul\'s schoolmaster, Kantorek.

    Wild Geese by Martha Ostenso A lot of great Canadian authors base their books on the prairie or land and its inhabitants. Wild Geese by Martha Ostenso is a wonderful example of this. Throughout the novel, many references are made to natural elements and also animals. Three very noticeable references could be picked out. These references were made to Judith, who is seen as a wild horse, to the wild geese that always move to new places, and also to the weather and how the family\'s attitudes and e
