You kill them. Good job on the carp.

Great job man! I have been watching your posts about shooting carp and its making my wife and me want to try it. Is there anything you can do with them other than fertilize? I would like to have one mounted with an arrow sticking out of its back.

In spring/early summer you should check out the north end of Long Lake and into Tittle Lake. More than likely they are still around there now. While fishing I have seen some huge carp in the shallows up to 30 lbs. Pretty sure a kid killed the state record there a few years ago.

I have heard that the little ones (under 12") are good eating.

You can also use them to feed Black Soldier Fly Larva which you can then raise chickens on (ducks and other birds like them too). The larva is very high in protein and fat. They can make short work of the fish (or anything else... table scraps, grain, etc.) and they conveniently deposit themselves in a container or on the ground when they mature. They are supposed to be great fishing bait as well and are known as "Phoenix worms" at bait shops or pet stores. You could probably make decent money selling the larva to bait shops. Some people use the larva to feed/raise fish as part of an aquaponics or aquaculture system too.

There is a lot more than this about them on youtube. I actually think this is pretty cool.

Awesome shooting BigHunt!!! Getting some use out of the new kayak i see. Is it pretty tough shooting while sitting? Where do you put them after you shoot them?


Also really awesome information DEerslayer.
