    If you want a good fairly cheap Bowfishing Bow keep an eye on e bay. The PSE Discovery 2 is a great Bow for that, Its what I now use. Mostly you will see them brand new on there and there priced good. I happened to find mine just as it got posted fully setup for an awesome but it now price and jumped on it! Oh and howdy fellow Hoosier :moose:

    Check out Backwater Outdoors, they carry a full line of bowfishing bows and equipment and will get you hooked up. Other then that, check other forums or your local craigslist ads for like what Crick said, a PSE Discovery, or a Mission Menace and there are several other options out there. Depends on compound or recurve as well. Depending on how much money you want to spend, check out the Oneida Osprey's ...best bowfishing bow there is IMO

    You may also want to check out Cajun Bowfishing, I believe Muzzy also came out with a bowfishing rig at the ATA.

    Just personal preference mostly and how much cash you are looking to wrap up in a rig. I have a PSE Kingfisher recurve that I'd prob sell as I will be shooting a different set up this year.

    The Cajun package is pretty sweet. I played with it at the show and liked it quite a bit.

    I have this as my back up bow or if someone else comes out with me. Great bow for bowfishing, only complaint is long and starts to get heavy after a few hours.

    As Crick said, PSE Discovery 2 is a great bow and hard to beat for the money. I had one for a long time and loved it. I now shoot an Oneida Osprey, and a Black Eagle, with a Mission Menace being a backup bow. Just depends on what you are looking to spend. D2- $179, Menace- $300, Osprey-$600-$700
