The grand trophy was given to Mr. Kyle who had actually gotten more coon hides than Billy. The motion picture had Mr. Kyle handing Billy the trophy. That is how Billy won the hunt and money. However, in the novel, Grandpa’s sprain was just an injury that was serious, but could be dealt with. Billy also got to tree and skin more coons than Mr. Kyle.
