I think this is how Davy Crockett referred to bears. He called them "bars," as I recall from the old TV show. "Killed a bar when he was only three," the theme song said. Now, back in the day, that seemed like a righteous thing to do, but I hope kids today don't grow up trying to kill bears when they're only three years old. Seems rather young to me to go hunting, even if you are with your pa.
