    Looking for anyone within an hour of the border to go whack these bastards but I have no idea where to go. I've got a 14' boat with a deck that would probibly work good and could fit 3 ppl, and have a bow setup. Let me know -Jimmy

    Let me know where and when!!! I got my first bowfishing rig a few months ago and haven't gotten to use it yet because I have no boat to go out on!!! If you want to cross the border I have a house on a lake that we can go do some shooting at!

    Wonder Lake usually has a carp tournament.

    I used to bowfish on the Fox River. About zero visibility in the liquid mud of that river and access is tough but the carp are there.

    I've hit the shoreline along the Des Plaines River a little with my bow, but still looking for a good place to go.
