Free bowfishing workshop in Yankeetown, June 17
Start Date: 6/17/2017Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 6/17/2017
Event Description:
Learn to bowfish during a hands-on workshop at Little Pigeon Creek in Yankeetown in Warrick County 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 techniques before hitting the water for one-on-one training with a professional bowfishing guide in a boat. Participants must have an Indiana fishing license and 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-served basis. The registration deadline is June 1.
