      I'm still unsure of the drum, just the bowfishing regs state that carp may be taken in any number. Just because the fish doesn't have regs doesn't mean ...more the bowfishing doesn't.

      Looked and couldnt find any regulations on freshwater drum so guess its consider less than carp cause carp were atleast listed in the regulations,

      Most places consider a freshwater drum a non game fish and most let you shoot none game fish so you should be alright
