The two main characters in "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell are Rainsford and Zaroff. They are similar in that they both love hunting, but their philosophies about the sport are different. For there are a few main characteristics of the characters that collates there similarities and differences. The two characters are similar because they both have a strong passion for hunting but they are different in their philosophies of the sport. Both Characters enjoy the sport of hunting; for Rainsfords's passion for hunting is very evident throughout the story. He considered himself a hunter because he has traveled all around the world and wrote many books on hunting. For example, He expresses his affection for the sport during the story, calling it "the best sport in the world." Zaroff, like Rainsford, has a strong admiration for hunting. It is clear that Zaroff is an avid hunter for the reason that when Rainsford enters his home he sees the heads of many different animals, some of which he doesn't recognize. In addition, Zaroff expresses to Rainsford that he has read his books and that he reads all hunting books that are printed in English. Zaroff, like Rainsford, fathoms about his affection for the sport saying, "I have but one passion in my life and it is the hunt." Clearly both, Rainsford and Zaroff are experienced and persisly mature in hunting, for Rainsford has written many books and has opened his hunting world wide; Zaroff has read Rainsfords' book, including others, and experience the hunting life world wide. Although The Arrogant hunters love their sport of hunting, their veiws on it is amazaingly differce! Rainsford's view on hunting is that animals were meant to be hunted. For example: He believes that animals have no fear or feelings of being hunted and says, "The world is made two classes- the hunters and the huntees." But, Rainsford's look on hunting takes a dramatic loophole when he becomes the hunted. He then realizes what animals must feel and the fear they have when they are being hunted. Zaroff's outlook on hunting is of an uncanny; murderous man. After he becomes bored with hunting animals saying, "The animal had nothing but his legs and his instinct. Instinct is no match for reason." So Zaroff hunts the one game that has the ability to reason, humans. In Addition, He somehow justifies hunting and killing men by saying, "Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if needs be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure. I am strong. Why should I not use my gift? If I wish to hunt, why should I not? I hunt the scum of the earth: sailors from tramp shipslassars,…
fur, and other products. However, there are different types of hunting, which include sport hunting, subsistence hunting, and commercial hunting. Because hunting has become more than a source of food, fur, and other products, it has become well regulated to preserve the capacity of the animals in their natural environment. This is a great example of conservation, which includes preserving and protecting wildlife that is hunted for sport and other reasons as well.

any means always, alas! that the tendencies for evil are
weakened and those for good strengthened. But during the last few decades there
certainly have been some notable changes for good in boy life. The great growth in
the love of athletic sports, for instance, while fraught with danger if it becomes onesided and unhealthy, has beyond all question had an excellent effect in increased
manliness. Forty or fifty years ago the writer on American morals was sure to deplore

van de Vusse in his letter to the editor published in The Age (18-3-14) also contends that the cruel sport must be banned however, he uses a much more aggressive and outraged tone.
Hank van Leeuwen begins this article with the use of shock value by stating that “instead of the usual calls of wetland birds, he woke…to the reverberations of gunshots”. This may cause the reader to associate duck hunting with war, allowing them to quickly oppose the idea of duck shooting and connect it with pain and suffering…
