Dave Keller worked well at Marcy’s Filling Station but his great wish was to become a game warden—as fine and devoted a one as his father was. However, the waiting list was very long and the qualifications to be met were most exacting.
Dave had a second big dream for the future. He wanted to prove that hunting the “varmints”—the coyotes, bobcats and lions that ran rampant in the nearby countryside—could prove a challenging, diverting sport to the countless hunters who swarmed into the area each open season, mostly in quest of deer. This would also put a stop to the reckless placing of poisoned bait by certain ruthless sheepmen whose flocks were being raided by the varmints.
Dave’s invaluable aid in his campaign was his loyal companion, Mulligan, a very giant of a dog, who, like the famed stew, had a mingled makeup, but who feared no bobcat!
How Dave moved toward his first goal through the second offers worthwhile reading. [Suggest a different description.]
