10.1 A few 'truths' about members of the party:
Key Pittman-Likes water better than whiskey-sometimes. Climbs to the top of Pike's Peak but finally gets in position.
George Larson-Ardent juggler of bottles and cans- Drinks coffee four times an hour when he can get it- takes pills- no wonder he can't see any deer.
Vail Pittman (Deadshot Vail) -Never misses. Outshoots Jim Cashman, wins all his money. Nevertheless Jim never gets discouraged.
Jim Cashman-Fires many shots, hits sometimes, sometimes he doesn't. Carries a sock, lost his shot gun, hopes to get it back. Drinks sauerkraut juice when there is nothing else.
Charlie Dunwoody (Deerslayer Dunwoody)-Hits them every time, sometimes. As poker player he is a damn good singer. Carries a big flashlight for self-protection.
Bill Williams-Tells hair raising stories- most of which are supposed to be true. Anyway he is a damn good wrangler and a genuine fellow.
Don Gondolfa -Says he won't shoot them unless they are big ones and then misses the big ones. Hopes to get a deer if the season lasts long enough. The size comes down every day.
Claude Mackay- (Multishot Deerslayer)-Always busy. Disgusted at Jim's pop-shooter.
Chet Olsen- Goes up to run them down to key and then shoots them between the lines. Does lots of shooting but little damage. Recommends peach shampoos to Jim Cashman. Suggests whiskey for Key instead of water.

3.2 And find it in the shadow of Bald Mountain
4.1 Here is the result of a might hunters cool nerve and keen eye. If we only had rifles that could shoot further, straighter, and sometimes over the mountain.
4.2 After the second day, Jim takes his meals sitting lightly (and he had lots of company). The cook gives him two hands and a boost.
5.1 Hal says it must be your imagination
