Congrats to new Record Holder, that's a big Buffalo! :trophy::cheers:

Stoddard County angler swipes state record for black buffalo

MDC congratulates Joshua Lee for shooting a monstrous 76-pound black buffalo at Duck Creek.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) congratulates Joshua Lee of Bernie on his record-breaking 76-pound black buffalo shot in Stoddard County. Lee shot the whopper of a fish while bowfishing at Duck Creek Conservation Area Pool 1 April 21. The previous record weighed 74-pounds.

MDC staff verified the fish's weight using a certified scale in Bernie.

"That's a big fish - even for one of Missouri's largest species of suckers," said MDC Fisheries Programs Specialist Andrew Branson. "Congratulations to Joshua on smashing the state record!"

Sucker fish live on the bottom of lakes, rivers, and streams. They feed by sucking up mainly invertebrates and plants. These fish are found in a majority of rivers and lakes throughout most of Missouri.

Suckers are one of the dominant groups of large fishes in Missouri waters. In many streams, their total poundage may exceed that of all other fishes combined.

Missouri state-record fish are recognized in two categories: pole-and-line and alternative methods. Alternative methods include: throwlines, limb lines, bank lines, jug lines, spearfishing, snagging, snaring, gigging, grabbing, archery, and atlatl.

I think bowfishing records are something thats not so silly....

It's a big arse buffalo, that's for sure. Congrats to the archer. :tup:

I guess the better question would be, why is there not an Archery catagory for fishing records? Lumping a Bowfishing fish in with Limb/Juglines seems silly.

Takes a lot more skill than a jugline fer shure.

I think in terms of the "everybody gets a trophy" mindset there should be more categories
-any thing that is a fish, from a topwaters minnow to an Asian carpet
- spear like caterogies. Record for each
Bow
Spear
Gig
Potato fork
Rake
Weenie roasting stick
Sword

Cookware categories
-Fork
Spoon
Grapefruit spoon
Salad tongs
Bbq fork

Other extractions
Bare hands
Shop vac
Mouse/rat trap
Swam into boot/waders
Swam up lady parts
Swam up other orifice

Guessing you don't bowfish. Killing giant fish with a bow definitely gets my respect. The spotted gar I had mounted was less than a pound from the state record and to me it was a pretty big deal.
