Summary :

When the half-starved, terrified man stumbled into their camp late one night, the famous hunter Neely and his guide Halverson shrug off his stories of a furry looking bear-like creature that put him and his friend in a cage, murdered his friend, and attempted to hunt him down.

The next morning, Neely and Halverson decide that perhaps his story isn't so insane -- perhaps there is a bear-like monster in the woods waiting to be hunted and killed. Something like that would sit well on Neely's wall, stuffed and mounted as proof for the world to see...

In a nearby cave, Snrr grumbles as he contemplates how to recapture the annoying creature that so deftly escaped him. A hunt is in order, for the creature's head would be an excellent trophy, stuffed and mounted for everyone back home to see...
