How many...
 
Bowfishers here are bowhunters also?

I'd say the percentage is pretty high. I know I've always considered my self a hunter who fishes rather than a fisherman who hunts, but that's just me.

I agree.

Soooo how many are ready for archery deer season?
And...do you stop bowfishing when 1 October rolls around?

pretty sure I have made my last trip for the year - getting a new bow and switching from right hand to left hand...

Thats a good question, i've always thought i ws a hunter that fishes too, i notice when bowfishing i stalk and ambush the carp. I think about the water level and where they are most likelly feeding. Plan my approach and either drift or motor over them. Feels like hunting more than fishing! And i hunt squirell, deer, and thinking of trying pheasant this year all archery! I do loose a few arrows but its so challenging and addictive, just love it!!

So was that a hard change to make? I was thinking of doing the same since I am left eye dominate but have always shot guns and bows right handed.
