Some of the hunters lead you along a narrow dry river bed. They say that the gazelle often gather further along where there is a pool of water. Crouched low, you quietly creep behind the hunters. Other hunters have gone ahead to lay a net beyond the pool. As you round a corner you see about twenty gazelle drinking from a shallow pond. Suddenly the hunters start shouting. The startled gazelle run away from you straight into the waiting net.

The hunters kill the gazelle and after skinning the animals you rest for the night. Everybody is happy because the skins will fetch a good price in Sippar. The next morning the hunters tie up the skins and swing them onto their backs. You all set off north towards Sippar.
