First post here glad to join the site.

Ive been bowfishing for about 20 years. Shot some neat fish over that time including many 55 plus lb grassies on public water. This weekend I shot a solid black gar and I was contemplating mounting if it indeed was rare. Its the first one I have ever saw in person. Thanks a lot!

Welcome to the site. Awesome fish. As for being rare I'm not sure. I live way to far away to know such things but if that is your first one in 20 years that sounds pretty rare to me.

I mean it is rare for me, certainly. I just don't want to spend a decent chunk of money mounting this fish if its not what I think it is.

If you like it and are proud of it mount it that's my thoughts. And by the way welcome to the site.

A trophy is a trophy in the eyes of the beholder. Do what pleases you and don't worry about the rest of us.

They are odd, there's a stretch of river by me that almost exclusively has black ones I guess it's the sketchy part of the river

Sweet fish! I've only shot a small black shortnose so far, would love to get a longnose like that!

Shot one yesterday, first one I've seen. Actually saw a few more on the same bank but couldn't connect. I'd say pretty rare.

Its been taken to one heck of a taxidermist. Will be a year or so lead time but when its complete Ill drop some pics on here. Im pretty certain the stretch of water I shot this one on we saw a couple more that weekend. Without sinking some fiberglass in them you cant ever be certain though.
