Biography: 

There are four sets of hunters in "Lion": 1) the members of the hunting party who are not specifically named; 2) the narrator's generic hunters who "love" hunting dogs (184); 3) the "other people" - men from nearby but not necessarily among the annual hunting party featured in the story - who killed "deer and bear" on the land owned by Major de Spain, "on Major de Spain's courtesy" (186); and 4) the men from Jefferson who arrive at the hunt annually for the last day, the day set aside for "driving" Old Ben (189).
