    to bag the biggest game

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Travelling you back sixty million years to bag the biggest game in all of Time

    to bag the biggest game = to kill the biggest game

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Re: to bag the biggest game

    ('Game', of course, in the sense of 'wild animals, usually when they are the object of a hunt'. ) 'Travelling you back'? Where did you find this?

    [If they mean dinosaurs, it would have to be a good deal further back in time!]

    Hi BobK,

    You’re right this time! Really I read a book (Ray Bradbury's "A sound of thunder") were is speaking of a Time Machine as well as for dinosaurs’ hunting.
