Stephen from Cartwright, Oklahoma took the point of view video of him catching a fish in North Texas using only a bow and arrow on a string.

Stephen said: “I’ve been bowfishing for about five years and have shot fish at the 60 to 70 yard range on many occasions.

“I’ve always been a big fisherman and I like shooting bows. So one day I used some of my win money from my fight to buy a fishing kit for my bow and the rest is history

“I fish four days a week typically and usually in the rivers and lakes of North Texas. For me bowfishing was self taught. Just trial and error.

“It depends on what range i’m shooting at. For close to medium range I hit like four out of five and super long range it can be one out of three on a normal day.

“The largest fish i ever shot i was out in my ultraskiff 360 and shot an 110 pound alligator gar.”
