Yo, Bear.

Those fish spears (or muskrat spears) are great fun, but tread carefully when using them. Most states have regs about spearing fish. Here in Iowa we can spear "rough" fish - like carp and suckers - but not trout or bass or walleye or catfish etc. (They also allow us to bow-hunt those "rough" fish.)

So check those local regs, and watch your backtrail!

p.s. And for some reason, they also frown on fish traps, weirs, and willow cages for fishing - all those good primitive methods that work so well! I've even heard that some states ban Hand Fishing! Probably a conspiracy between the gov and all those manufacturers of Angles!

Do you think they ban the ole, Bleach upstream-fishnet downstream routine? HAHA! Yeah, I'd love to try my hand at a shad run with a spear just like in old times, but I doubt that is going to happen.

I hear ya, Bear. I know full well that rural ... subsistance ... hunting/fishing.

I just wanted people to know that there can be gov regs/seasons associated with hunting and fishing. I know of a number of people that got all enthused about primitive hunting/fishing, and went out to put them into practice - without even thinking about the possible legal consequences of those actions. A few got caught. Nasty fines, that blot on their record, and absolutely NO hunting/fishing for a couple years of "probation".

As they say: Compliance with all State and Federal regulations is your personal choice, and you will have to be responsible for said actions.

Now to go ... um ... er ... acquire ... yeah, that's the ticket ... acquire ... supper!
