    Just went out bowfishing for the first time but didn't get anything because they were raising the water on the lake. Got a few shots off before it got to deep to see anything, but I am hooked! I quickly realized that I need to practice more before going out again and curious to know what others do in order to get more accurate?

    1 gallon milk jug full of expanding foam and a heavy enough boat anchor to hold it under the surface.

    Sounds like my cup of tea! Just curiously, where do you buy the expanding foam?

    Any home supply store will have it probably enough to do 2-3 jugs with 1 can.

    Great, thanks for the tip! Certainly will beat spending hundreds on a target.

    Have you messed around at all trying the jug trick to practice?

    No, I actually did something even simpler. I went to a local Creek and just shot at dark spots in the sand that were underwater. Didn't need to mess with a target at all.

    I've definitely need to get some practice in.
