Bowhunters are being invited to shoot as many Asian carp as possible in a
competition planned for July on the Illinois River in central Illinois.
Organizers are planning the first Flying Fish Festival and Bowfishing Tournament
for July 11 and 12 with a sporting goods store as lead sponsor.

The tournament will charge $120 per boat for up to four participants.

Asian carp are an invasive species that infests the Mississippi River and many of its tributaries. A multi-million dollar effort is underway to keep them out of the Great Lakes where they could disrupt the fishing industry.
