When I was president of the Bowfishing Assocition of Iowa I worked with the DM parks department to try to get it legalized on Grays Lake due to the over abundance of rough fish present.
They city fought it hard and eventually it was put to its death.
It is under the jurisdiction of weapons use inside city limits.bowfisherParticipantNovember 12, 2019 at 10:08 amPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantNovember 11, 2019 at 10:53 amPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantOctober 28, 2019 at 8:23 amPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantOctober 25, 2019 at 2:01 pmPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantOctober 25, 2019 at 2:01 pmPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantOctober 24, 2019 at 2:20 pmPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantMarch 16, 2018 at 1:40 pmPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantMarch 16, 2018 at 1:39 pmPost count: 2218bowfisherParticipantMarch 13, 2018 at 7:07 pmPost count: 2218
I pretty much have shot and/or owned them all. I like a compound for the power to zip the arrow down deep to suspended fish if needed. A recurve is generally lighter, but a compound has better water penetration hands down. This said, I do have a compound bow specifically built for bowfishing with no let off and allows me to snap shoot if needed. Essentially its the same power at half draw as it is at full draw. Its definitely a give and take.
Some of the newer compounds are really light, nearly as light as a wooden recurve. Most compounds are much more durable also. Bowfishing can be pretty rough on a nice recurve.
