It was a good article. I admit I said some fairly poor things about the nightime bowfishing that got threw last year. To see it this close to getting in as a "state wide" (almost) rule change for this year is a good thing.

Good job guys.

Guess I will have to find someone with lights and try it at night. I am big on daytime shooting, but I am willing to try.

Great Article...but I have two questions:

1. How do you use a bow and arrow to shoor carp through the ice?

2. Are Corssbosw legal for carp shooting?

I would assume that it would be like spearing, just cut a big hole. Crossbows are only legal if you have a physical disability.

My understanding is it's illegal to use a bow and arrow thru the ice, but you can still find open water (ie in rivers with current or by a warm water discharge) and shoot carp there throughout the winter

it is legal to bowfish rough fish through the ice but you can not posses any spearing equipment with you.
