Bowfishing: A Sport Full of Thrills and Adventures
Bowfishing is an exciting outdoor activity for thrill-seekers because it brings together two of the most thrilling pastimes: archery and fishing. With its unique combination of talent, precision, and a little adrenaline, this sport has taken the world by storm. Come along as we discover the thrills and excitement that bowfishing has to offer.

Bowfishing is a novel take on the sport of fishing that adds excitement and challenge to the activity. Anglers in freshwater and coastal areas use customized bows and arrows to catch fish, rather than a fishing rod. The joy of hunting underwater targets with your arrows is amplified when combined with your knowledge of archery.

Learning to Aim Precisely: Bowfishing is a Sport That Requires Practice and Skill. As a fisherman, you'll need to account for the way water bends light before firing. Over time, you'll hone your archery skills and revel in the thrill of consistently hitting your target. It's exciting and satisfying to make a shot after trying a few times.

The thrill of discovering uncharted regions is a major draw for many bowfishing enthusiasts. Bowfishing may take you to a wide variety of beautiful places, from inland lakes and rivers to coastal areas and ocean reefs. It's a chance to get outside and try your hand at something exciting and physically demanding.

Bowfishing allows you to pursue a wide variety of fish species. Carp, alligator gar, catfish, tilapia, and many others could be found in your area, depending on where you happen to be. Because of the unique obstacles presented by various species, no two bowfishing expeditions are ever the same.

Adding to the fun and adrenaline is the fact that bowfishing is frequently done in groups or with friends. The social aspect of tracking, aiming, and shooting together makes for a more memorable experience. It's a chance to make experiences that will last a lifetime and strengthen friendships with like-minded people.

I've been hunting and fishing with Dennis many times. He is as good as it gets. His attention to detail is what makes him great! Lots of fun to spend time with. A true man of the outdoors. Can't wait to go again!
Jeff Ruddler

First class all the way. Dennis is on the water almost every single night keeping up with the fish so you can experience a great night of bowfishing. I've been going out with Dennis for the past 10 years and there's a reason why I make the 9 hour drive, because Dennis puts me on fish. Great guy, great guide, and great bowfishing. Redden Outfitters all the way!!

Dennis redden is the man for putting you on fish. His friendly nature and southern hospitality makes you enter as clients but leave as friends. No better guide in Kentucky!

I have been bowfishing for years and have never shot so many times in one night. Dennis had us on more fish than we could pull the bow back. My son and me had the time of our lives and I actually felt pampered. We didnt even get dirty or stinky. Dennis explained everything to us before we started so we knew what was going on, we just wasnt ready for all of the action. We brought along our own equipment and as luck would have it experienced mechanical failure. Dennis was right there with his setups so we lost only seconds of time instead of a total disaster. So if you're looking for the ultimate family time or after dark excitement, DENNIS IS DA MAN. You will not regret it.
