Ralph is actually able to join in on a hunt and wound a pig. For the first time, Ralph feels the exhilaration of imposing his will on another living creature. He also feels part of the rest of the boys instead of isolated with Piggy and Simon. This, however, is only temporary. Ralph will go back to demanding responsibility on the island. This will separate him again.
