I'm not even sure where to being with this one other than to say thanks to Kev-O for sending it across my desk.
The Readers Digest version is that Silver Carp were brought over from Asia for some specific purpose of filtering catfish ponds. There was a flood, the carp got into the rivers, and the end result is that these things are breeding out of control and getting huge.
By luck, some crazy ass bowhunter guy found out that if you run your boat at a low RPM near these carp, they go berserk and start jumping like 10 feet out of the water. He strung up a bunch of arrows on fishing line, got himself a case of beer and a video camera and extreme aerial bowfishing was born. http://www.brackettoutdoors.com/cbfishstory.htm
If that was f-ed up enough....they were out filming a show and shooting fish, when the fish started fighting back. The guys girlfriend ( pretty super hot girlfriend I might add...there apparently are perks to being an extreme aerial bowhunter) got nailed by one of the fish and broke her jaw !
