Day One Hundred Seventy-Nine: "Jacklight" by Jeff Ewing


A man shoots a buck and hunts it down late into the night when the buck refuses to simply stop and accept the death. The reader gets a glimpse into the mind of the hunter, a unique look at the vulnerability present in many men who take the lives of animals such as this. I thought the story was well written and it really made me think about the idea of hunting, the thrill of it, in a completely different way.

The story is available online here:
