Could you use regular bows for bowfishing and just mount a reel on it. Or should you buy a bowfishing bow. If so how much do they usaully run?

You can use your regular hunting bow and just buy a reel to put on it.

Thats the great thing about bowfishing, you can spend as much or as little money to go. Just about any kind of bow will work, if you use a recurve make sure it is at least 45#. Or your hunting bow will work great. I have dedicated bows for bowfishing, the fishing can be really good in the fall and I don't want to keep changing my setup. Also bowfishing bows don't get treated well they can get covered in blood, slime, eggs or get droped in the lake.
