7 Tips to Prepare for Peak Bowfishing Season

7 Tips to Prepare for Peak Bowfishing Season

by Ryan Simmons January 08, 2021

Well, January has finally arrived. For those of us here in the north, that means deer season is over and hard water (that's ice for our southern friends) is upon us.

The plate has a welded stick that protrudes up in order to let the operator steer the boat comfortably while standing.
