I enjoy using a gig though. It's almost like a caveman stabbing a mammoth with a sharp stick.
My issue with the gigs is that a lot of them get away after you stick them. A frog with 3 or 4 holes in him won't live long, but he can sure as hell get away from you.
Same thing happens with a pellet gun (I've heard). Shoot him anywhere but right between the eyes and the bastard jumps in the water. (.22 will blow them clean in half)
Shooting one with a bow (in theory) would work, but they can theoretically jump up and get off the fletching side of the arrow before you can get to them. Bowfishing setup would theoretically solve this problem.
