Cajun Archery Drum Reel

If you bowhunt, you HAVE to pick up the bow and sling an arrow in the water at some point!  Bowfishing is one segment of the hunting industry that is growing at a steady pace.  If you have not tried it, here is a great product to get you started for less than $20!  I believe in the 'Keep It Simple Stupid' philosophy, and the drum reel handles it with ease.  You have a drum or bell (that's what I always called it) that the bowfishing line wraps around.  Instead of using a fishing style reel, you hand line it and wrap it around the drum when retrieving the arrow.  Simple.

Cajun Archery Drum Reel $19.29

I am currently writting my first book:  Bowfishing the Slam
This book will take the reader on an adventure across the country in pursuit of some of the greatest and strangest aquatic species North America has to offer!  We will head for alligator gar, Asian carp, common carp, paddlefish and snakehead in fresh water, then go  after mako shark, hammerhead, stingrays and skates in salt water.  Then to top it all off, the only non-fish species, the American alligator will be hunted.

Two companies have signed on so far as partners in the quest:


Shorts of the quest will be chronicalled in:



  1. Super stoked for you, Bill! Can't wait to read about your adventures and to see how everything progresses. Being a total newbie to bow fishing makes me want to learn as much as I can! Best of luck and I hope you complete the Slam in spectacular fashion!

  2. You must check out for their outdoor gadgets and gears.
