Hey all, just getting into bowfishing this year with my rig. Will be setting up the front deck this weekend.

My question: What do most guys do for fish disposal? I see some events will sort those logistics out, but what about the average joe on a night shoot? Dug into the forum and looks like some go to farmers, but if I cannot find a farmer (Or have a yard to dig & use as garden fertilizer) what would you recommend? Had a blast last year with a buddy, but want to have my bases covered before (hopefully) filling a drum with fish. I'll be shooting the Saginaw Bay starting out.

We always gave them to farmers but if you asked the local baits shops they could probably help you. We had a blast when we went to sebewaing on Saginaw bay bow fishing years back. Have fun!

Did you ever find a way to dispose of your fish? I just move to Michigan and live near Lake St Clair and I need to find a place to dispose fish too.

Yes, sorry for the long wait on a reply. My friend owns 30+ acres and has a tractor, so he gets the pleasure of digging a hole and burying them on his property after we shoot.

Put them in a double garbage bag and then put them in the freezer. On garbage day morning put them out in the cans and they'll get picked up. I have a magnet that says "Fish Guts" eye level high on my back door and I flip it over when I have fish guts in a freezer so I don't forget. Note, I am just filling bags of walleye and gill guts from cleaning them. Not 15 stinky carp but I don't know why it wouldn't work.
