Then, Melissa headed to Texas for some alligator gar bowfishing action where she connected with a monster 7-foot alligator gar. She encourages everyone to get out and take advantage of whatever kind of bowfishing opportunities you have available in your area. Not only is it a lot of fun, but at the same time it will keep your shot on point and your muscles toned. If you already have a bow, Melissa tells Jim and Trav that they can be easily fitted with bowfishing equipment, you just need to know what you’re going after and adjust your setup accordingly. The 600-pound test line that she uses for big fish, isn’t required for something smaller like carp, so know what you are going after. If bowfishing is out of reach and you’re looking for other fun ways to get kids involved with archery shooting this summer, Melissa says to keep it fun and look for ways to create a reaction. She says that hanging water balloons from targets is a great way to get a reaction and keep kids’ interest as successful shots cause explosions. Making a competition out of shooting can get the whole family engaged, outdoors, off of electronics and doing something together. Make sure you tune in to Winchester Deadly Passion for some of this bowfishing action Melissa is talking about and much more!
