Hunter Walters (l) is all smiles as he proudly holds his catch, a 20-pound Buffalo, while Thomas Ricketts (r) holds his 12-pound Buffalo. New to bowfishing, both boys shot their fish after a morning spent learning bowfishing skills during the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Discover Nature Basic Bowfishing youth clinic on May 4 at Truman Lake State Park. Despite cold and rainy weather, nine kids participated in the clinic and learned bowfishing safety, techniques and regulations. The event was a cooperative effort between MDC and Missouri Whitetails. Sponsors included AMS Bowfishing, Muzzy, Bowfishing Extreme and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
