    Got these two the other day while attempting to get a paddlefish. No luck on the paddlefish though.

    We got a few grasscarp, and some buffalo's also. The big gar is the biggest I've ever shot, 42" and 9#'s. The smallest one is the smallest I've ever gotten, I'm guessing 8-9" and 2oz's! I thought the for sure the arrow was gonna split it in half!

    Nice shooting there on the tiny gar.

    In my mind, it rivals shooting a flyin aspirin with a blunt tipped arrow (ie: they are both out of my reach).

    I've always wanted to try that. We got gar here about 6 feet long and bigger.
