Bowfishing for Pacu in the Amazon [VIDEO]

Wading in the Amazon bowfishing for the larger cousin of the piranha can leave you feeling…exposed.

The pacu is almost three times the size of its meat-eating cousin that strikes fear into the hearts of millions by the mere mention of its name.

There’s nothing to fear here, however, as the pacu is a herbivore and lives in the eddies of the Amazon.

Check out the human-like teeth of this fish.

So, who’s ready to grab a bow and give this a try?

I’m sure you could use your modern compound, but there’s something enticing about this hunter’s primitive bowfishing rig.
