Rainsford and the General were talking about a lot of hunting,and what all they have killed,also what they are hunting lately.
General and Rainsford get to talking and General Zaroff tells Rainsford that he has something new to hunt. He also tells him he hunts humans. Rainsford didn't know what to think,until Zaroff wanted them both to hunt each other.
