Judd, however, has other problems. Anyone who cheats and swears and lies and kicks his dogs has troubles inside himself, and when the man starts drinking, Marty realizes that Shiloh is in danger once again. As hunting season approaches and Judd begins hunting on their land, the Prestos know that something is bound to happen.
They're right. Marty does the only thing he can think of to do, and discovers just how deep a hurt can go and how long it takes to heal.
Having won Shiloh for himself, Marty realizes that he still cannot trust the dog's reckless and alchoholic former owner, and the boy fears that Judd will open fire on Shiloh come hunting season
