Where's all the blood on the carpet? \:\)

I have but one request to fellow bowfishermen....Please do not "quick release" your carp. Keep them in a barrel or tub and dispose of them in a way that will not negatively impact bowfishing. This is becoming a very big issue in the bowfishing community and we need all the support we can get.

I'm not saying you guys specifically, just pass the word along.
NO RAMP DUMPING!!!

I'll second this. I don't bowfish, but bowfishing is legal and that's fine. But personally, I don't appreciate fishing in a spot that bowfishers have hit and "quick relased" where I have to look at fifty dead and dying buffalo, gar, carp, etc. floating around while I fish.

I was taught that when you kill something, you've got a responsibility to eat your kill or make use of it somehow. You don't just kill for sport and then leave your kill to rot. That's not what sportsmen do - though it's what PETA says we do. I don't like seeing people help them make their case.

I understand that other folks don't have the same sportsman's ethics that I do, and TWRA has said you can kill all the "trash" fish you want and just leave them to die. So you're within your rights, my opinion notwithstanding, and I understand that.

How about a compromise: I will fully support bowfishing and will not complain about it, as long as you guys carry your catch out, give it to someone who wants the fish, put it on the garden for fertilizer, or at least make some pretense of using your kill. But every time I fish a creek or a flat where you guys have left two dozen dying fish twirling around shot, I give serious thought to calling my TWRC Commissioner and asking them to start regulating you guys.

I'll make no pretense on using my kill. They are carp, they are invasive, and killing them for sport makes a lot of sense. When weight isn't a issue (two people or less), I'll load them up and take them to the farm to rot. When weight is an issue, they go back in the water. NEVER will I dump fish around a ramp or in any type of marina for the those that are so soft hearted.

You live with this and I'll think about not calling my TWRC Commissioner and asking them to start regulating you guys that leave a dozen, dead and floating, GAME FISH laying around after a big tournament.
