Confict caption contest results

We received two dozen entries to our inaugural “caption contest”. Notably, most entrants asked to remain anonymous, assuring me that their (cheeky) captions did not necessarily reflect their personal views. Our winner, Karonne Hanlen of Vancouver, however, was fine with having her “wacky/macabre sense of humour” publicized. The top five (as judged by a panel, who also wished to remain anonymous):

1. “No, Bubba, I doubled-checked. It’s when the knife went in – nothing about bullet wounds.”

2. “Which one of you wants to play the victim?”

3. “Stay curious, but keep the gun handy just in case.”

4. “So did we come here to go hunting or what?” “Alright, just one more paragraph, seriously!”

5. “It says here I should apologize to you boys.”

And here’s my own submission:
Having reached a standoff with his prey, our intrepid hero prepares to adopt a collaborative approach.
