I don't have any reason to have them around. Especially that size. Early teal is scary enough with a dog from a snake pov much less a huge gator like that.

I have no tolerance for any and all forms of poaching. You can argue whether or not you want them there, can't argue these guys broke the law.

Agreed, poaching is just like lying and stealing. Your either honest and your word means something or it dosen't!

I got to see that gator up close and personal. I was at my taxi picking up a mount when the GW brought it in to get the head mounted. I've never been up close to a gator (other than at a zoo) but that thing was a monster!

I don't know all of the circumstances on this one but I call bs on this statement. I would bet you break laws on a regular basis. Maybe only traffic laws but it's easy to justify fuzzing up the line when you are in a situation.

I will have to disagree with you on this one. If it were a deer out of season or on someone else property I would see it different. Some things just aren't right to have to deal with. Like the "reintroduction" of wolves. Devastating deer and elk herds, killing hundreds of domestic livestock and costing tax payers millions and for what? Some political bs bunny huggers. Same with the gators. If it was in a place where I hunt I would want it dead. Were they stupid to put it on social media? Yep. But just like all the SSS threads you see on here about stray and feral dogs, sometimes you have to do what needs to be done.

It's amazing what one can learn just by cruising through a topic.
Simply amazing.
