Fandango’s One Word Challenge (31 August 2020)

Prompt image for the Fandango One Word Challenge prompt

I started looking around for ideas to satisfy Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) for today, hunter, and could not believe my luck. This story from just a few hours ago: https://eu.statesmanjournal.com/story/news/2020/08/30/hillsboro-archery-hunter-killed-charging-elk-outside-tillamook/5677037002/. Actually, this type of story seems very novel from here in the UK, but I hear them from the US a few times a year, so perhaps not so uncommon as I first thought?

I’m sorry, there is some swearing today – part of this is undoubtedly my lack of vocabulary, but some of it accurately represents my feeling toward hunting. I hope you’ll forgive me just this once.

I was just out for a stroll, just trying to mind my own,
When some bastard shot an arrow in my ass,
So I turned on him, pursued him,
Caught him and subdued him,
Now I’ve put that little fucker out to grass.
