Hello all, been lurking here for some time, figured I'd join in. Let me apologize in advance if this is the wrong section. I didn't see a "New guy intro sub forum"

Pretty new to mid-Missouri, just retired from the Navy, and being from Texas, used to bow fish the banks of the Trinity River. Moved here about a year ago and got hooked on bow fishing. I shoot the MO and her side rivers 2-3 days a week and absolutely slam the silvers and gar. I'd like to try the lakes for some big suckers though. Just upgraded to the Lowe 18/60 archer so no reason not to be out there even more.

Look forward to contributing to the community and would love to hear from some of you Missouri guys about the various opportunities in other parts of the state.

Thanks and take care.

This seems to be a pretty active forum. Do yo guys ever meet up aside from tournaments?

Another outdoor forum I'm on has a bow fishing section but its about as exciting as Ben Stein on tranquilizers. People talk about bowfishing around here but I've never seen another bowfisherman/woman out on the water aside from some kids shooting from a bridge one time.

A lot of most of us fish at nite into the wee hours of the morning might be another reason that hardly ever see any of us on the water, do fish some daytime during the spawn but nite time is much better as a rule....

Several of the guys on here are good friends, and we get together fairly often to make things dead. Lots of beer drinking, boat building, deer killing and beer drinking mixed in too. Sometimes we even grab a beer.

Makes sense. I didn't have lights on my previous rig so never went out past dark. We shoot tons of fish during the day as it is, can't wait to try night-time.

Welcome. What part of mid MO are you from? I'm in Jefferson City. I shoot the Osage, Maries, Moreau and on occasion the MO rivers as well as the Lake of the Ozarks. If your anywhere close to Jeff City, it's always nice to get to know some new people that are into bowfishing.

Only during the day. Usually a ghost town at night as long as you stay away from the bars

Welcome. Also from around Jeff City area. We hit the Osage mainly, like to stick to the small rivers.
