Texas Parks and Wildlife Department regulations permit bow fishing in Texas coastal waters and in most rivers and large lakes. However, this method is not allowed in: ... Lakes lying totally within the boundaries of a Texas state park, or anywhere on state park property. meaning lawless sport dont quite fit if the lake is away from parks or state property th ee spot you were at seems out of the way maybe it wasnt texas and its lawless in that spot?

As an archer (in general), let me say that any archer who is angered or upset by the notion of limiting their leisure for the sake of respecting the earth and keeping its life in balance is no sportsman and does not deserve to have a bow. Our fun does not outweigh the importance of any ecosystem.

My dad is a marine biologist who works at FIU. I lived and worked with the team there for a few years and I can assure you that every single one of them loves fish and aquatic life with a passion and a drive for conservation that has gone unmatched. Unfortunately, not many other people realize the importance of aquatic life ecosystems, but that doesn't stop them from researching and exploring ways to help our fishy friends. I'm extremely familiar with the sonar machine y'all are using there, too - one of the lovely humans I had the pleasure and honor of assisting and watching work was a sonar specialist who creates systems and machines, including building a drone controlled by a PS4 controller, to identify and count the fishes below.

They have every reason to be scared and hostile towards humans yet they still are so docile and I'm sure that the majority of the people who got bit understand that it wasn't agressive it was self defense and it wasn't necessary but the animal doesn't know that
