I am with my Gonchakov morning walk in the woods, trying to raise a rabbit is lying firmly. It is not possible for a long time, but finally I heard not far pomychku gambling, voice realized that rut started «by sighted», those. hare jumped out of maturation close to the dog. Ghosn was removed, I followed him and soon came to the forest winding road. Voice of the dog began to shift to one side, then turned to me.
Standing on the side of the road, I saw that it makes a sharp turn fifty meters from me and thought that I would turn better and more visible, quickly rushed to him. However, the voice of the dog, is fast approaching, I realized that I have not time, and probably hare rushes down the road to meet me.
I stopped, stopped twenty meters from the turning on and turning saw the broad long puddle, covered by ice. The next moment, hare took off at high speed on the ice. I raised the gun. Hare immediately hit the brakes, and I saw him, sitting on the back, stretching out long hind legs and putting between front, drove me on the slippery ice.
In the next moment, gathered into a ball, hare jumped to the side and… I fell for Bush mozhzhevela, struck my shot!
Picture moving to its own tail oblique forever etched in my memory. This watch I no longer had.
