That is pretty cool. Heck of a shot to hit one in mid-air. I would like to find a place way out in the middle of nowhere and try that with my Bushmaster.
my kids want to try that! minus getting hit with a "flying" fish
I was watching that last night on TV. There were so many fish jumping out of the water that they didn't know which ones to aim for. Plus they were being pummeled with fish jumping into the boat. LOL.
I grew up in Great Bend, Kansas. Cheyenne Bottoms was just NE of town and was (and still is) a major waterfowl migratory spot. Fish and Game would occasionally drain and one of the large "lakes"/pools for assorted purposes, and we'd go out "carping" with bows and or our trusty .22's. Riots of fun!
Used to do a lot of bowfishing. It's a real hoot! I had a Zebco 808 reel mounted on my bow. Get a 40 lb. alligator gar on and it's pretty exciting!

here in Eastern Nc fish mostly for long nose gar. The reel in the pic I got in the 50's and it has served me well. One time the line got tangled and the arrow stretched the line taught and it flew back and hit the reel causing the dent on the reel face. The reel works like a can with a line wound around it [ for those that are unfamiliar with this type reel ].
