Free bowfishing workshop, Little Pigeon Creek
Start Date: 6/17/2017Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 6/18/2017End Time: 12:00 AM
Event Description:
Learn to bowfish during a hands-on workshop at Little Pigeon Creek in Yankeetown, Indiana on Saturday, June 17.

The free event is a joint effort between the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife fisheries staff, the Hoosier Bowfishing Association and the Bass Unlimited Foundation.

The workshop will promote the growing sport of bowfishing while raising awareness about aquatic invasive species. Bowfishing can help the environment because bow anglers often target invasive and nuisance species such as Asian carp, Grass Carp and Common Carp. These species can damage native fish habitats.

The event starts at 6 p.m. local time (central) at the Yankeetown Boat Ramp on Little Pigeon Creek.  Participants will learn tips and techniques before heading out on the water for a one-on-one experience with a professional bowfishing guide who will provide hands-on training in a boat.  Participants must have their Indiana Fishing License and must be new to the sport.

The workshop will end around midnight.

All equipment will be provided.

Advance registration is required and is limited to 15 participants. Register by contacting fisheries biologist Rebecca Munter at (812) 789-2724 or rmunter@dnr.IN.gov. Spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis, so register early to get your spot.  The deadline for registration is June 1.
