Unfortunately, SeaOx, you are right. There are still idiot or slob bowfishermen that dump their nights kill. We still get guys dumping at boat ramps. It makes us just as sick and mad as it does the next guy. We don't condone it and we go after who ever did it as best we can.

However, the jist of this thread was about Alligator Gar. The limit for them is one per day. The species you listed are unlimited. So while there are a still a few SLOB bowfishermen that will dump their alligator gar and even shoot and release more than one, I still stand behind my statement. I don't think the majority of alligator gar fishermen are shooting and releasing.

Very true Texas Two, I did not mean to sound like all bow fisherman do those things. There are good guys that do the right thing and there are those that just won't whether rod n reel or a bow.

I know their are some that enjoy the challenge and eat what they kill or give it to some one that will. I like me some gar of any species, buffalos are good but the fine bones are a pain unless pressure cooked and canned.

I think that a "tournament" encouraging 3 heaviest alligator gars for weigh-in is the problem. That encourages dumping lighter weight ones to keep on sorting out until the three heavy ones are ready for the weigh-in.

How about eliminating alligator gars from the competition? Or eliminating the weight competition? Any method that would discourage sorting and discarding would help.

Maybe issue three tags per boat. Each alligator gar shot must be tagged immediately after shooting.

Whatever the solution, I believe something could be done. The TPWD has imposed a daily limit of one alligator gar per angler for a reason.

The issuance of 1 gator gar per day rule is what encourages the "sorting/culling". It was not necessary. It's also been proven Bob that tournament fishing for alligator gar is not harming anything. Also, it's rare that a team will being in a full stringer of alligator gar. Take a look at this study.

The study also showed that merely 9-percent of tournament bow anglers returned the survey. Reasons for that were speculated in the report, but a 9% response rate is not statistically significant to make valid conclusions.

Therefore for us to maintain a running debate on the issue has little merit. We have all expressed our opinions on the issue, so I suggest we move on.

You forgot this "In addition, we conducted an online survey of Texas Bowfishing Association members in 2012 and received 82 returned surveys, resulting in a 46% response rate."

You really had to dig to pull something out of all that, that was in your favor didn't you?

All I did was read the report (and quote from it) that you provided the link for.

I repeat my closing line in my last post:
