Just Maddy pt. 4

by Martha Hubbard

read from the beginning, here

Winter brought hunters, and they were a whole different story: red hats, red jowly faces and red jackets; some even brought Day-Glo safety vests. That wasn’t a bad idea, as after two nights of sitting up drinking with Bill, most were so hungover and befuddled, they’d shoot at anything that moved. The extra bright colour might slow them down long enough to wonder if that was a deer or a mate. Sometimes watching this motley band of winter warriors stagger into their SUVs on Monday morning, Maddy thought it was a wonder they ever shot anything but each other. Somehow they did bag enough deer, wild pigs and rabbits to bring them back year after year.
