Yep that monster was shot last year at lake Rayburn in Texas and is the current lake record from what I'm told. Keith and Robin are good people and full of usefull bowfishin' info.

As far as where to find the gar, look in the water ;). Just kiddin', sorta. Hard to find them during the day right now but last year about this time at night after a sunny day we've seen em on the mud flats at/in the mouths of the creeks on BS. Haven't been this year yet so can't really tell ya.

Any good piece of backwater should be holding some gar....also below dams, have seen some good 4 footers or so below Truman and Pomme both...Have also shot em in slough holes off the Mo river...

if you wanna shoot a gar, then hit a tributary to a good sized river in the dead heat of summer.

the slack water that fireman described is the best because the gar will cruise right under the surface and come up to gulp air.

just arrowing a gar is a challenge ie make sure you have some pretty sharp tips on your arrows!
