Carpe Diem!

"You're falling asleep!" or "Shoot low!" are the sounds you here when you're hanging around Nick and Nick. I've run into a loose group of guys at Wildwood who have a interesting habit of shooting carp through the head (or there abouts) with an arrow tethered to a bow. Bowfishing is a sport that may be as obscure as it is controversial. The controversy arose after I showed the pictures to Mary who went all "Don't club the baby seals" on me. The pictures are graphic I admit, but this is a sport with rules and regulations and it's legal. Besides, I'm a spectator here! Besides, these guys are fun to hang around with. They have a loose camaraderie that's easy to join with and they are more than polite while pursuing their prey.  I'll keep posting about these guys and their exploits as the season goes on.

  1. Imagine you're a carp. You're swimming along. You get hungry. You spot a piece of bread. You put your little carp lips down to the cool, clear breadball - BAM. A fuckin' arrow rips off part of your head. Your brains are lying in the water in little bloody pieces. Now I ask ya, would you give a fuck what kind of pants the son-of-a-bitch who shot you was wearing?
