As the story opens, Francis Macomber and his wife Margaret (usually referred to as 'Margot'), are being guided on a big-game hunt by professional hunter Robert Wilson. We learn that earlier in the day Francis had panicked and, in his own words, "bolted like a rabbit" when a wounded lion charged him. Margot mocks Macomber for this act of cowardice, and that night she sleeps with Wilson.
The next day the party chase down three buffalo, and Macomber joins Wilson in killing two of them. Exhilarated by the hunt, Macomber feels transformed and no longer afraid. "You know I don’t think I’d ever be afraid of anything again," he says. It is soon learned that the first buffalo was only wounded and has gone into the bush. Wilson and Macomber will have to track and kill the wounded animal, reproducing the dangerous circumstances of the previous day's lion hunt.
An important passage in the story occurs in the moments just before Francis and Robert Wilson go into the bush after the buffalo.
