Outside Iowa: Bowfishin’ Mania is running wild

-A A +A
By Thomas Allen

Bow fishing is relatively cheap to get into, locating some good shooting is very simple and it is just good, “clean” fun.  Your efforts in shooting big fish like carp and gar offer great benefits as far as management is concerned because carp often overpopulate quickly and they can be very hard on the habitat.

It is my preference to set up an inexpensive bow specifically for shooting fish. Since archery season is almost two months away, changing your deer hunting set up at this point in the summer creates more of an inconvenience than anything.
