WILLMAR -- Combine the sports of archery and fishing and what do you get?

"An adrenalin rush,'' said Jesse Medalen of New London when describing the similarities of bowfishing to hunting.

You can also get lots of fish, if you have the aim, stealth and good luck.

Medalen and friends Amanda Buer of Willmar and Keane Johnson of New London had it all May 18 when they arrowed 102 carp in outings on local waters during the day and nighttime.
