    I'm sick and tired of switching back and forth from my bowfishing setup to just my regular hunting setup. Are there any accessories out there to make it easier?

    Two bows are the way to go. I even have two different bows for fishing. #1 is a vintage wooden Wing recurve and #2 is a Jennings compound. I do not use the compound around saltwater because the salt is too hard on it. I ruined a good PSE compound in salt water so I learned the hard way.

      Definitely use two different bows. Bowfishing is much harder on your equipment than just shooting arrows, so it's best to use a "retired" bow for fishing.

        Look on Craigslist or at Garage sales. Lots of old bows for sale, at low prices.

          I have the same problem. It really is a pain, but I can't afford another bow right now until next week when I go back to working more. I have a longbow but that seems really impractical to set up for bowfishing. So for now I guess I'll just have to use my main bow. Hows ur luck?

              Buy a used $25 compound bow and set it up for bow fishing. It will always be ready to go and it will work just fine.
