My Little Outdoors Man!

Elijah is an outside boy all the way. He loves to be outside. He enjoys walking around with a gun looking for stuff to shoot, shooting his bow and arrow and his newest hobby is knife throwing.

I'm not sure how Elijah got interested in knife throwing, but he really enjoys it. He is now collecting knives. He already had a few big ole knives, but now he wants throwing knives and stars. A few weeks ago he did get a nice foam target from Academy Sports after this box was full of holes.

Elijah got this deer target for his birthday a couple of years ago. He has shot this deer with his gun and the bow and arrow, now he is throwing knives at it.

You can see he has a little metal squirrel target too. He has a long string tied to it so when he is far back and shoots it over he can pull the string to stand it back up again.

Not a killing shot, but he did hit it.

You and your family are so brave. I would be so afraid of a freak accident. I guess I've deprived my kids of lots of fun and learning because of my fears.

Dot, we may just be the stupid ones. Who really turns their 8 year old out with knives?
