HIT THE WATER
Stay in the game during spring and summer by targeting fish
Bowhunting for small game doesn’t get the credit it deserves. For starters, pursuing small, living targets is a great way to improve your accuracy and shooting form. And unlike big-game hunting, it can provide a plethora of shooting opportunities in a single outing.
Then there’s bowfishing, which opens the door to even more possibilities, not to mention off-season archery practice. And as a bonus, bowfishing is also a great way to help control populations of invasive species, such as Prussian carp in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Just be sure to check your local fishing regulations to make sure you’re good to go, then follow these tips to get in on the action.
