Bowfishing For Carp On The Snake River

A.K.A. Mike’s bow fishing page.

This page has sporadically lived on my web server in one form or another since 1995.

Circa 1995

A Notice Circa 1996

WARNING A lame attempt at humor and creative writing!

Cyprinus carpio_, other wise know as a "_Carp" is the subject of this page. Rather the shotting of carp on the Snake River is the real subject of this page. Before you send me a Green Peace lovin’ email about the destruction of animals be aware that the carp is not a native species to the Snake River. In fact it was introduced from its native Asia some 150 years ago. Therefore the carp in its artificial habitat of the Snake River is actually a pestilent species, destructive of the environment of the Snake River’s native fish. The carp has no predators save our savior, and hero, and fearless leader, Donald, and his Vice Admiral of Destruction Jason. I have a lawyer, I will sue you if you send me any uneducated dribble contrary to our mission of returning the Snake River to its natural state by the killing of one carp at a time.

I think I must of have gotten a flame email about shooting carp that propted this notice.

Circa 1997
