Yup. Aruba took our spear gun and did not want to give it back although they finally did. Bonaire held our spear gun, flares and flare gun. We’ve been routinely asked about “weapons” onboard. I would think a bow and arrow would qualify as that.

If you declared a bow for fishing, you may be on thin ice in some countries since we frequently had to get local licenses and/or adhere to local fishing regulations and a bow wasn’t listed as approved fishing method that I remember. Pretty hard to hide a bow on aboard during a Customs inspection.
