Mr.Rainsford is on his boat with one of his friends going on a hunting trip. He falls off of the boat and swims onto the island that was next to the boat.
After getting onto the island and looking around he spots a house and knocks on the door to meet a man so big he was terrified. A man by the name of G. Zandoff invited him in and told him he was going to be hunted.
The next morning Rainsford ran into the forest trying to make false tracks and loops trying to throw General Zandoff off. The next day after Zandoff could not find him, he made a trap and killed one of Zandoff's hounds.
The next day he made a knife trap ultimately killing the big man Ivan. The next day was the final day.
When Zandoff brought all of his hounds out into the forest to come help him find Rainsford, Rainsford jumped into the ocean and swam around the island hiding on the edge of the rocks.
The final night Zandoff went into his bedroom to go to sleep, but he found Rainsford in his curtain hiding there waiting for him. He said congratulations to Rainsford and then Rainsford went to sleep.
