4. Arrow through the hart?
Among their encounters while traveling through the malign forest of Mirkwood, the dwarves see a hart, which Thorin shoots at with his bow. What is a hart?
Your answer — B) A ground bird of the partridge family — was incorrect.
The party are approaching the edge of Mirkwood and have barely eaten for days when the hart crosses their path. Thorin’s arrow strikes the beast, but before they can go after it, Bombur falls into the river and needs rescuing. Shortly afterwards, the dwarves catch sight of a hind — a doe — and her fawns, “as snowy white as the hart had been dark”. They expend all their arrows shooting at them in vain.
