Desperado, How much closer to that record could you be. Three more ounces on a fish that big is not a lot. You were almost there. I am assuming that you shot that buffalo in Ohio?
Back when Paisley and I shot our buffalos out of Hoover they had a different system for determining the record. It was on some kind of point system. I think it was 1 point for every ounce, and 1 point for every 1/2 inch or something like that. Mine was a female that lost tons of eggs. Maybe a couple pounds of them. Paisley said his was a male.
Ok guys i have to brag alittle about this but have any of yuo shot two fish at the same time.
I spotted this one carp rolling on the bank and was kicking alot of mud up so i was waiting for the perfect shot.When the shot finally came i took the shot and the carp just sat there did not move, man the stunk then when i started to bring my line in there were two carp, one pass thru the other stuck right in the head of the other could not belive it.I had no idea that the second carp was under the first one.unblelievable first time for me.
I SHOT TWO AT ONE TIME LAST YEAR, I DID IT AT THE GREAT MIAMI RIVER IN DAYTON, LUCKLY MY WIFE AND KIDS WERE WITH ME SO I HAVE PROOF I DID IT. I SHOT MY THE SAME WAY YOU DID YOURS , I DIDNT EVEN KNOW THE OTHER ONE WAS THERE UNTILL I REELED IN THE LINE , THEY WERE ABOUT FIVE POUNDS A PEICE AND MY WIFE EVEN GOT PICS OF IT
I have a small boat that could be used for bowfishing but anymore I do all of my bowfishing from high creek banks or wading. I should get the boat out to Buckeye this spring. I have not been there for a while.
a few years ago the bowfishing association of michigan held a tournament on a lake called allegan.it was the nastiest looking lake with nothing but garbage in it.we never saw a single game fish in that lake! but to make a long story shorter......both my partner and i shot at these schools of carp just sucking scum on the waters surface.these schools had hundreds of fish in them and all you could see was LIPS!!! well each of shot 5 fish at one time .and my partner had six on on one of his shots but one got off.we took about 3 shots each and had somewhere around 25 fish in the boat.the only other spot i have seen fish stacked up like that is a warm water discharge on lake erie.the shad will stack up by the THOUSANDS and i mean thousands!!! anyone could shoot 5 to 6 fish at a time.i stopped there today and the lake is froze and the fish were piled up in the only area not froze.i also saw a couple big schools of carp.i am going togo out and stick some tommorrow .
