All it takes is a knock on the door (try to not look like the uni-bomber when you visit), and a word with his parents. It will shut down his random shooting quick!

He said he had already spoken to the parents.

Call the law and let them handle it as a reckless endangerment case. Might finally wake him - and his parents - up.

I'd get a written estimate for the value of the trees he's been filling with lead. A mill saw wouldn't like those little lead bullets much. Present the estimate to the parents of the little turd. Tell them the next step wears a badge. I think you've been more than neighborly to this point.

Another thing - if you said that he is doing it over the span of about an hour, then (when you get to the point of being ready to call the cops) call when he first starts shooting.

Chances are, the cops will arrive while he's still outside shooting, so that there's better documentation of the behavior.

Like others have said, it would be better for the parents to step in and handle things, but if they don't...

I'd go back to the parents. He is a 16 year old kid and come on, we have all shot posted signs and a few of us have had our a$$es busted for it....if the parents don't respond to your charitable 2nd attempt them I'd call the law...if the parents won't stop this now then it's a matter of time til he becomes a familiar face at the courthouse any how

Sounds like the kid is interested in the outdoors and has nobody to take him... How bout you go down there and ask him if he would like to hunt with.you ? Slowly gain his trust and start teaching him how dangerous what he is doing could be. He might become a hunter one day and that would be bc you helped him understand stuff that maybe his father couldn't or didn't have time to do. May be gods way of telling you that kid needs help or you simply need to PASS IT ON what you love so much....the great outdoors.

SCN is always right on

A good dose of a Hunters safty course might help if he hasn't had one.Sounds like he could also use a Mentor to teach and show him some respect.

Have you actually tried to converse with THE KID?

A 16yr-old isn't a man, but he's not a child, either. Be up-front and direct with him, but be gracious and respectful at the same time. You might be surprised. Good chance no one else in his life treats him that way, if they pay attention to him at all.

Give it a shot... I sure would before I damaged my relationship with my neighbors (maybe for good) by bringing in the law.
