Most the shows I have seen the folks wear protection but it's around the head - well oops!

I always thought that Asian carp bow fishing would be neat. Now I'm not so sure...

There was a lady boating on the Mississippi took a 10-15 pounder to the face at 40-50 mph can you say cosmetic surgery. There was a guy bowfishing up by Alton that shot I think an 80 pounder. Last year the conservation dept. had commercial fishers get on the Kaskaskia that comes out of Carlyle Lake they were to take 50,000 lbs. out. They didn't even make a dint. These fish are a dang nuisance. If you fish on the bottom for cats they run into your line and get tangled up and then get off so you don't get the fun of fighting one in, but you still have to reel in and rebait.
Eat more possum!

Hey what about we all take an anti hunting animal rights activist on an Asian carp run. Just might be a cure to their ailments.
