Hunt 3 - CT River with Mike Seekins, and Rich and Justin Hackner

This time I brought another father and son out to enjoy some great bowfishing action. I had introduced Justin to bowfishing last year when he was 11. With the spawn approaching, we had some good action on the river this evening.


Rich boats a nice fish right off the bat.

These snapping turtles were "preoccupied" and didn't seem to mind our boat floating by.

After landing a fish, we looked down and saw this carp laying in the weeds directly beneath us. We called this one "dumb carp."

Hunt 1 - Lake Lillinonah, Ridgefield CT with Roy and Robie Robinson
Roy had won a bowfishing trip I donated to the United Bowhunters of Connecticut. I extended an invite to Roy's son as well. While it was not Roy's first time bowfishing, it was Robie's. They had a blast, shooting half a bucket full of common carp in 5 hours of bowfishing.

Hunt 2 - CT River with Matthew and Patrick Lefemine Jr.
My second trip of the season was reserved for my two sons, Matt (6) and Pat Jr. (8). Matt is a little too young to bowfish but he made a great spotter for his older brother who was able to bowfish with his new BuckMasters compound.
