Blue, we used to shoot carp in E.WA. with our hunting bows...it was a blast! Several large ponds with banks 20-30 high and we would sight fish as they were cruising. In washington you are able to hunt big game from a boat as long as it's forward motion had stopped. I had to quit bowhunting about 10 years ago due to back issues, and I still miss it. You are going to have a great time on the Fusion, easy to see so many possibilties.
