Keaton, 14, is Doug Rickard's youngest son. He has a great relationship with his dad and they joke around a lot. He is also in competition with his brother Joshua on who can kill the most geese, which leads to some choice words between them throughout the hunt.
Keaton has the distinction of killing the first goose of the hunt and the last one to finishing plucking. Everything Keaton knows about hunting he learned from his father and grandfather. He is now old enough to hunt alone and have his own hunting blind. He is also an active learner and even spends time with his grandfather re-learning how to make a fire.
