By Avery K.
New York, Age 10

Imagine yourself in the woods being chased by a wild pig. What would you do? Well my answer is drop the gun and run, but if he jumps on you, I don't know what to tell you. However, that is just my advise. My name is Avery. I'm a big hunter. It was before summer school started. I was up on the hill with my papa. Our job up there is to feed cows. We took the Rave up to the hill so we could catch a calf that sprang loose. After we got it back with the herd we went hunting for ground squirrels. We looked everywhere. When I finally found one I shot it in the head. That was the happiest day of my life. I was proud.
