Kalamazoo bow fisherman shoots new state record black buffalo fish

Bryan DeGoede and his buddies were cruising the backwaters of the lower Kalamazoo River shooting fish with bows and arrows, when he took aim at a black buffalo just before midnight. The big fish turned up in powerful light being used to spot them.

The 29-year-old bow fisherman from Kalamazoo let his arrow fly and quickly nailed what would turn out to be the new state record black buffalo.

“It came out of nowhere,” said DeGoede, member of Team Death From Above, a four-man competitive bow fishing team that competes in Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky tournaments. “It was a fun shoot that night, just the four of us. I didn’t think it was quite that big, and we left in the barrel overnight. Then, my buddy looked up the state
record and said: ‘We might have a state record on our hands.’”
