Doesn’t get much stranger than this. It’s called ‘Extreme Aerial Bowfishing’. The sport was born out of the massive overpopulation of Asian Carp in the Illinois River. Each year residents take to the river with bows and literally shoot the jumping carp out of the air. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel until one bow hunter, Jodi, became the hunted. In an instant, a rogue carp leaps from the water and breaks Jodi’s jaw.
The amazing images were captured by Field and Stream photographer Bill Konway.
