0 - Jones comments on the seasons and rules of hunting, noting that her father hunted with brick-loaders and muskets frequently. Once a bear hugged her grandfather so tightly that his friends had to cut him away from the animal. Once a man choked a panther to death with his bare hands and dragged it home.
