    There lived a man named Palchik, a short man and his friend, Dog Ear. Dog Ear said: “Come on, let’s go hunting.” He said to Dog Ear: “I won’t go.” Dog Ear said: “I won’t go either, my mother is sick.” He was sitting in front of Palchik and the mother said: “Go, why shouldn’t you go, there are so many animals in the woods. There’s nothing to eat, there’s no meat.” Dog Ear set off. It was not Dog Ear who set off, but Palchik.

    Palchik went and looked. He had come to a black forest. He looked, a really big elk was going through the black forest. He drew his bow, shot off an arrow and it hit the elk straight away. He came up to the elk. He came to right away to the elk. He came to the elk and the elk lifted its head up and said: “Why did you kill me? Tomorrow I would have given you such good fortune, with this good you such good fortune, with this good you kill me? Tomorrow I would have given you such good fortune, with this fortune you would have lived long.” Well, fine. He pulled the arrow out of the neck, three times three, seven times he turned the elk to the sun. The elk stood up again. It stood up, gave a whistle and the elk was gone in a flash.

    He came home and the mother said: “Son Palchik, what did you kill?” “I didn’t kill anything,” he said. “I wounded an elk, but it got away.” Then Dog Ear said: “No, I’ll go.” Dog Ear went, went, and went. He went along and then came to some sort of place, there was a little house. There was a little house, he opened the door and looked, an old woman was lying there. Suddenly he could hear an old man coming from somewhere. He could hear him tearing trees out by their roots. Suddenly a demon appeared. He appeared there and he said to the old man: “I have killed many animals and you will not get rid of me.”

    The demon said: “Let’s go hunt elk. Whichever of us eats the most, that’s the one we’ll kill.” He said: “Fine, I agree.” The demon set off, together with the demon he killed three elk. They killed three elk, they took a big, very big cauldron, carved them up and cooked them. The cauldron boiled and the demon said: “Come on, we’ll eat.” He started to eat together with the demon and turned his eyes up, the demon ate quickly, but the man of tales could eat nothing at all. He gathered up the bones from the demon who had closed his eyes. The demon said: “There’s nothing left.” He looked suddenly, the demon turned his eyes up and said: “Oh, it looks like you ate a lot.”

    The demon lay there, opened his eye, the man of tales took and poured lead into his eye. The demon was burned by fire, he sprang up and screamed and screamed. He screamed, burst out, and dragged along all the larches by their roots. He screamed: “I’ve been burned at some time, I’ve been burned.” But the devil knows when he got burnt.
