    Just curious Mr. Bob, Were that is legal. I know it's not here in Mo. It's not a judgement call on my part.

    I've seen people bow fish for carp, but you know if they see a big cat they are probaly gonna shot it.

    South Carolina, flatheads are not native fish and treated as such. Unfortunately.

    Those are asian carps, and I'd say it was up on the Ill. river. The DNR doesn't seem to care what is done, just so they are killed out. Google asian carp, and check it out. Later Andy

    With the exception of what did appear to be a blue or channel, they are following the regs of the state. Doesn't mean I agree with the shooting of cats, but what the SCDNR says goes, I reckon. They just don't care for the flatties, management-wise. Maybe if they listed them as game fish people would be more likely to pursue them by more "accepted" means. Listing them as non-game fish kind of helps to give them a bad rep, imo. Kinda like the buffalo fish here in MO. It's a common fish, easy to catch, cleans up very nicely and tastes great, yet it is generally regarded as a "trash fish". Except for those in-the-know, most everyone throws them back or on bank.

    Again this wasn't a judgement call on my part. I was just curious were that was legal. At least I'm glad you watch the video in it's entirety and saw what appeared to be a blue or channel......:big_smile::wink:

    Oh no, believe me, I was astounded to see the second half, and I don't reckon I'll watch it again.

    I've seen them shoot catfish with bows on TV several times before. It was always done in the southern states. It's a wonder they have any game down there with all the stuff they allow you to do.

    Don't if they still do, but at one time you could run deer with dogs and shoot them with buckshot in Arkansas.

    That's probably a legal method in most states that don't have catfish listed as game fish. You can usually take any non-game fish with a bow.
