    So I am going to wait until after the IL deer and turkey show, but I am set on a dediacted bowfishing unit. I have been looking at the PSE kingfisher. Anyone have any experience with it?

    Also, shooting carp is going to be a blast, but what Im most excited about is the possibility of using to take frogs.

    Since I was little my dad and I would go on all night frogging excursions, then fry up the legs the next day. He's getting too old to hang all night now but still enjoys the spoils the same.

    With a bow you could have a chance to take those big boy floaters that are hanging in waist deep Mississippi water, without hauling a canoe!

    I guess most people wouldnt get this excited but I cant WAIT for the summer, especially now.

    I have been using the Kingfisher for the last few years with absolutely no problem. That would be a good/economical choice to start out with. I personally would add a retriever reel with that though. The drum would be a headache!:bash:

    The kingfisher is pretty much the cheapest thing you can find. I'm a little worried because I've never shot a recurve, but I'll get used to it.

    You can buy it set up or bare, I think I'll get one bare and get my own accessories.
