The twenty-five hunters are told the rules of the championship. Each night, five sets of hunters go out with a judge; the hunter with the most skins at the end of the night qualifies for the championship runoff; hunters after the first night must equal or surpass the number of skins the first night's winner got. Billy draws a card and gets to go out the fourth night.

The first night's winner gets three skins. No one equals that the next night, so all the hunters are eliminated. Billy thinks he should hunt far from where the others have hunted. A hunter on the third night ties the first night's winner. Billy gets restless.
