Problem is, from my perspective, that we know nothing about the child that was taking the shot beyond what JM has described. She may be a very accomplished archer having accompanied family and friends hunting for a few years,or she may be a novice archer and dads decided he’s going to take his little angle hunting.
Poor hit, mechanical head mashed (but then I wouldn’t rely on those things to bust a balloon) did they attempt to follow it up? did the father take responsibility, what lessons did they learn.
A kid of that age has may be 50 years hunting ahead of her, kids need ethical ground rules if they are going to grow into the responsible hunters of tomorrow.
Clay, have a great weekend.
