I thought it was interesting how the author presented a few characters and gave insight to their perspectives. It felt strange for such a short story to have five different perspectives, but it was never confusing. They seemed to all talk about the absence or turmoil in a relationship. These feelings all came about because of the absence of most of the boys. It seemed to give the other people time to think and reflect on more than they usually would have because they normally have to keep their guard up. When reading this short story, I had flashbacks to when I was in high school. The first week of hunting season was a time when most people could relax and not have to worry about getting catcalled or spoken down to. The one day the boys are gone from terrorizing the school, they go out to terrorize the wildlife. The destruction isn’t gone, just redirected.
