This was a feast of delicious description. Such a tiny moment in history, but you made it huge and alive, placing me behind the eyes of the buffalo hunter.
Love the descriptions and the "you are there" immediacy of the action. Nice line about using the rifle for a cane to indicate this is an aged cowboy. I think this submission would have worked better for last week's challenge -- this side of pardise? Of course, what happened to the Buffalo was a crime.
It certainly is a crime how some of mankind has abused the earth and its living creatures and the punishment is being felt by all, as creatures and natural resources become scarce - the beauty of the earth as God created it being changed.(and not for the better!)
You show this with impressive word visuals and artistic detail! But I was a bit confused by your last line that incorporated last week’s challenge??? But enjoyable read!
