K here is question for you, What do you do with the fish after you get done bowfishing. Side of road, School grounds, Play grounds, Trash can, Bury them, Dump them in the middle of the river/lake, Eat them, Boat ramp, or give them away. So what do you do with the fish.
Me I buried them, put in trash, dumped them out in the middle of the river/lake, ate them, until I got a phone call thamks to one of my sisters. The Wildlife Sanctuary of Northwest Florida called me and asked if I could help them out with some fish to help feed the animals. My answer was YES. My sister is good friends with the director of the sanctuary and she told her that I do alot of bowfishing and would she be interested in some fish for the animals of course she gave her my number.
So now I have a good home from all my unwanted fish.
So check around your area and see if you can find a place that is willing to take your unwanted fish, Farmers, Wildlife Sanctuary, Turtle farms, Hog farms, Gator farms, ETC.
Its becoming a big deal in some states about dumping fish on side of the road, boat ramps, peoples back yard.
For those who live in the area around Collier County Florida. FWC is trying to change the law on spear fishing and gigging. They are trying to pass a law to where you can use lights and spearfish and gig at night in Collier County State waters. The meeting will be April 17-18. I hope it passes and opens up new water to bowfishing, spearfishing, and gigging for those who lives in that area.
