Illinois hunting and fishing

Lisa Tabor stalks fish with a bow and arrow in the overflowing waters of the Illinois River near Detweiller Golf Course in Peoria on Monday morning. Tabor was bowfishing with her husband, Brian, and friends Mike Bowen and his son Brad. The group were catching a variety of carp plus gar and buffalo. The cool waters of the river contrasted with the rising temperature that was expected to reach the low 90’s. Photo by David Zalaznik of the Journal Star
