Oh yeah. You can see where this is going.
I got a call from our neighbor. She wondered if I had seen anyone shooting arrows at her dog (The one that barks A LOT).
Why, yes, Karen. I have seen someone shooting arrows but I promise he wasn't shooting your dog.
He was shooting birds. BECAUSE THAT IS SO MUCH BETTER? Sigh.
Once I assured Karen no one was trying to kill her dog, I sent Grant to her house to retrieve the arrows he lost in her yard.
We had a LONG talk about our awesome new Christmas present. We reviewed the rules....
You know rules like don't kill things and don't scare your elderly neighbors.
And just to be clear. He doesn't use the bow unsupervised. He just has incredibly bad aim and we lost a couple arrows.
