Default Re: Competing with other sportspeople for carp

we have huge bowfishing tournaments around here and i must admit before it became common knowledge that carp were valuable as a fly rod quarry i shot many of them myself. as long as what they are doing is legal i dont know that you have ant real recourse. maybe your fish and game dept will change regs or something if intrest in carp fishing continues to grow but until it helps theyre bottom line with gain or loss in liscense sales that probably will not happen.the bowfishermen purchase fishing liscence to so i doubt it will change. fortunately for me most of the smaller rivers where i carp fish have zero bow fishing pressure and we have tons of bigger tidal rivers with tons of larger carp where they like to shoot.
