Default Cow nose& southern ray bowfishing

So Iím in need of some help. So recently I started getting into bowfishing, but mainly bowfishing rays. I am at the moment in the Santa Rosa area. Iíve been going out for the last couple nights in a row looking for rays but sadly have had no luck. For some reason I just canít seem to find them, so I was wondering if maybe someone could give me so tips and info on where one might be able to find some. As well as also maybe some info on like when the the cownose actually start showing up. So any kind of tips is and would be so helpful. Please and thank you.

Default Is this legal? I sure hope not.

Better check on legality. If it gets to be popular, it will soon be illegal if it isn't already.

There is a popular place in Pensacola to shoot them. There was a charterboat captain from Alabama that would go to the spot at night time and shoot lots of them. It caused such an uproar, the story made the news. At the end of the day, there is no law against it, and no limitations on the number you can kill.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, he caused an uproar cause he was shooting stingrays, cutting the barbs off and "releasing" them.
