Famous quotes containing the words island and/or hunters:

    He is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    When shot, the deer seldom drops immediately, but runs sometimes for hours, the hunter in hot pursuit. This phase, known as ‘deer running,’ develops fleet runners, particularly in deer- jacking expeditions when the law is pursuing the hunters as swiftly as the hunters are pursuing the deer.
