When the two hunters first discover the Monster in the hut with the blind hermit, one of them has a rifle and begins fumbling with it in an attempt to shoot, but drops it when the Monster knocks him down. He also loses his hat in the tussle. The hermit intervenes, but the hunters tell him that his 'friend' is a murderer and the Monster, hearing this, moves toward them again. The hunter then inexplicably has his hat back on his head and the rifle back in his hand and is hurriedly trying to cock it. As the Monster closes in, the camera pans back, showing the hunter now without his hat and rifle again and instead hiding behind a column. The quick scene of the hunter hurriedly trying to cock the rifle should be placed earlier in the sequence, when the hunters first appear in the doorway, and before the Monster knocks the hunter down.
