Epic battle with invasive carp
What do you get when you cross the nutty antics of Jackass with invasive species population control? The Peoria Carp Hunters! Based out of Peoria, Illinois, the largest city on the Illinois River, the Carp Hunters specialize in creatively killing high-flying invasive silver carp. While they usually shoot the fish out of the air with arrows, what they call “bowfishing on steroids,” they’ve taken carp killing to another level in this new video.
Featuring new weapons, such as the Barbed Batterer, the Carp Dicer and the Dream Catcher, the hunters demonstrate their “unbridled excitement to killing this invasive species.” True, they’re unlikely to win any awards from PETA, but this crazy crew certainly knows how to make the best of a bad situation. Note: all the fish killed in the video were apparently gathered up and eaten or used as fertilizer.
