You've Never Seen This Long of a Bowfishing Shot Before

This is one of the most impressive shot's you'll ever see someone make with a bow.

If you've ever been bowfishing, you know it's not as easy as it looks. Even when you're directly above a fish, it's hard to get the right angle on the fish. The water actually refracts the image of the fish, forcing bowfishermen to aim especially low.

Even then, though, you have to adjust for depth, current and light, as each can affect the image you're aiming at.

Now, try to throw at least 25 feet of elevation on top of that, as well as a minimum of 40 yards of distance and you have what could be considered an impossible shot. You have to wonder if this guy just abruptly stopped his car to take a shot or if he chose to literally raise the stakes.

Watch the video below:

Making that shot is about as likely as hitting a game-winning, full-court shot in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, and this guy somehow just swished it. How many tries do you think it would take you to connect with that fish? I'm going to go out on a limb and say I'd probably be out there all day.

Additionally, it looks like he managed to get an awesome fight out of the fish, too, so he's just firing on all cylinders.

Doesn't this make you wonder how many fish he could shoot from a boat with flood lights? It also kind of makes the idea of bowfishing at night with lighting kits seem kind of cheap now.

Now I want to see him take a bow out into the woods.
