After the First
Source: out of print
In this dramatization of a 12-year-old boy being taken on his first hunting trip by his father, the boy enjoys learning to use the gun correctly on inanimate objects, while pleasing his dad. Then the father kills a rabbit and urges the boy to kill another rabbit. The boy is visibly upset; as he brings the dead animal to his father he mumbles, "Is two enough?" and walks away. The father follows with, "Wait up. I know how you feel. I felt that way once. You'll see, after the first time it gets easier."
