Book Characters That Would Be Great To Go Hunting With

We are lucky enough to live in a time and place in history when hunting animals for our next meal is not essential for survival. But what if that all changed?

Imagine a world like that of a dystopian or fantasy novel where you were forced to go hunting or fishing just to be able to find your next meal. In that fictional world, here are three book characters whose shared skills would give you your best chance of survival.

Feyre from A Court of Thorns and Roses

Feyre Archeron

Feyre Archeron is hardworking, independent, and loyal to those she cares for, no matter what. She is also, more importantly, an excellent hunter. As we see right away in the beginning of the first book in the ACOTAR series, she knows her way around a bow. Years of being the sole provider for her father and sisters forced her to become an expert at hunting. Her options were either that, or see her family go hungry. Feyre would be the perfect hunting companion, just as long as you earned her trust and stayed on her good side.

Katniss from The Hunger Games

Katniss Everdeen, like Feyre, had to learn at a young age to be good with a bow in order to keep her family fed. The living conditions and rations in District 12 were simply not good enough to keep her family alive, especially after Katniss’s father died in the mines. Katniss had to become an excellent shot, and she rarely ever misses her targets. She also knows the feeling of needing to hunt in order to survive, and for that reason she would come in very handy as a hunting partner.

James from Twilight

Unlike the first two fictional characters who utilize bow and arrows for hunting, James from Twilight operates in a much less conventional way. As a vampire with a very strong tracking sense, James could hunt just about anything.

Although in Twilight we only really saw him hunt Bella and the Cullens, I am positive that he could easily transition those skills into hunting animals. The only teeny tiny issue with James is that he went absolutely feral for Bella after smelling her unique human scent, and did everything in his power to kill her and drink her blood. But I’m sure that killer instinct is something he could work through with you!

While the three characters mentioned above would probably be the best bet for survival, I for one am very glad that I do not have to hunt and fish in order to survive. I’ll leave the hunting to the experts.
