nope never got to try it. seen a show about it on tv and it looked like it would be an exciting as all get out fun time. it looks like it would take me a while to get quick enough with my bow to hit the fish though.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

There's nothing like shooting a 60 pound + crass carp and fighting him... It nearly jerks ya outta the boat... If ya got the right set up its great...

Default I enjoy bowfishing

I have always loved bowfishing I have been at it for 10 years now, I would love to go somewhere down south that has aligator gar or even go bowfishing for mahi mahi or something like that. I mostly bowfish for carp here in washington. Bowfishing is a good way to get in shape for the regular season as well.

I went out a couple weeks ago...shot a bunch of carp and long-nose gar. Nothing too big this time, but it is alot of fun. I was shooting out of the kayak this time...adds a little to the challenge. Saw something really neat while I was out too...a huge (probably >100lb) alligator snapping turtle. He was in about 2 feet of water and the ribs of his shell were right at the surface. I got to paddle my kayak right up next to him and follow for a while...another one of those unforgettable outdoor experiences.
