Years ago when my son was 6 years old, we lived in what was considered out in the country. We lived at the foot of the 2nd tallest mountain in Arkansas (still do). Neighbors were way down the road and some were relatives. We had a bear trail behind the house where the bears would come down on a regular basis to scrounge for food. Food consisted of fish scraps etc in the compost box, plums, pears, apples or even dog food.                                                                                                                                                                                          We had several beagles for rabbit hunting but that was about it. This guy that lived about 3/4 of a mile away never kept his dogs up and so they went everywhere. One big black male cur would show up and basicallt take our dogs food away. The guy always said that it was our problem for feeding our dogs outside. This guy flirted with the law all the time and so we just did our best.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           I was working on a plumbing problem inside the house when my son came in and told me that the cur was back again. I told him that I was in the middle of something right now and he could run it off. He quietly asked me if he could use his bow and shoot it. I paused for a moment and then told him only if he used his rubber tipped arrow. Then he took off. His bow was one of those little red fiberglass bows that a 6 year old would shoot, so no problem right?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 After a minute or two, my curiosity got the best of me and so I got up to go look outside. When I got to the door, he was at full draw and only a foot or two away from the dog. I started to yell for him not to shoot but it was too late. Anyways, the dog was hauling butt and not quietly and my son was beaming a huge grin. I chewed him out lightly because he could have gotten bitten or really hurt the dog  End result was the dog never came back and my son was convinced that he could take a deer LOL.
