Bowfishing in the Hopedale marsh

Shawn Nelson and his family bowhunt every season. Having lived in Louisiana all his life, Nelson has been fishing since he was a young boy. But the one thing he’s never been able to do until now is bow fish. He and his dad got to experience bowfishing together for the first time and had a blast. They learned a lot through trials and mishaps out on the water, but came out of the experience with a better understanding and ready to go again. They said God blessed them with beautiful scenery and a harvest of redfish and gar.

You can also check out how they cooked the alligator gar below.

You can see more from the Nelson family on their YouTube channel at Nelson Family Outdoors and on Instagram at @nelsonfamilyoutdoors.
