I don't care for the taste of carp myself, but lots of people do like them. Some Oriental cultures and lots of Hispanic cultures really like them. When I was a teenager we used to give the ones we caught to a nice little old Mexican lady in our neighborhood. She loved getting them. Maybe you can find someone close to you that would eat them? That way you would be having the fun of bowfishing and still be able to avoid throwing away the animal.

THe point is that they are not indiginous to the united states and they need to be kept in check for the sake of other fish (who's eggs they eat) and their own sake. They can over populate very quickly.

Not to mention how fun it is

Hey Guys I'm not knockin ya in fact I might join ya. I was just taught to use what you harvest and I stick to that.
using them doesn't mean necessarily for human food... wild animals enjoy a stinky carp not only to eat but also to roll in{dogs do too if ya got neighbors who let them run loose}... turtles love them too... they make wonderful fertilizer... give'm to folks who do eat them... any thing other then burying them in the landfill is using them... wild critters gotta eat too...
