This is just my opinion but these jokers that shot the mako with a bow are pathetic.
Really..
A shark in the back? I'm sure some will more than disagree with my opinion but I think this crosses the line a bit and I think this is pretty inhumane.
That's all I have

How is it any worse than reeling one in and then putting a flying gaff through it?

Can't get my arms around using humane and shark in the same sentence.

The hippies have checked in

A kill is a kill. Shooting a shark with a bow is no different than reeling one in and gaffing it then popping it in the head with a bang stick

Personally I think it's pretty cool

Those videos kick [censored]! How did I miss this?

And these sharks suffered less than some of the bungling gaff jobs that I've seen... heck, some of the lousy gaff jobs I've done... LOL

I think PETA members would agree with you but not anyone on this forum.

Probably the worst thing about the episode was that the Mako was a world record taken by bow at over 800 pounds and he didn't have it mounted.

Hey the Joker that shot the MAKO checking in! Im glad a few of you got to see the show at least. Trust me, I get a lot of Hate mail about the shark, but I get way more good publicity than negative. You either love it or hate it. I personally love going out there. Just something about the unknown of the ocean. Glad you guys enjoyed it. And I do have the measurements in case I decide to mount him, but it was 11 feet long! My house is just not quite big enough yet....
