Bowfishing (city limits)

Is it legal to bowfish for carp within city limits? For example, could I shoot carp at Parkcenter pond in Boise?


Idaho Dept. of Fish and Game rules do not preclude you from using a bow to take carp from Park Center Pond, but City of Boise Municipal Code 06-04-02 prohibits the use of a bow other other device that fires a projectile outside of approved ranges or on private property.  Park Center Pond is a Boise City Park.  As such, it would be illegal to use a bow at this location.
