Results are online now.

For me... "pending 2nd draw" frown

Have been been applying for the gator hunts starting with the first year they were legal and have been on maybe 20 of the drawn gator hunts give or take. I used to get drawn almost every other year and even had one 5 year lucky stretch. These days the odds are not what it used to be. It seems to take an average of years to get drawn now. Amazing how a TV show can change public hunting like Duck Dynasty did to Duck hunting and Swamp People to gator hunting.

Drawn for JD MUrphree! First time ever for alligator hunting.

Sniper John, I must admit, Swamp People got me interested in gator hunting.

Did that hunt last year. It's a lot of fun. The guys running the hunt were awesome! Very professional and helpful.

cheers Same with hog hunten... Shows like Pig Bombs, & the many others, too many ta mention... Lowfer here.. Low income, first lease got on was because it had hogs, & for less than a buck a day... A 24-7-365 chance ta do some grillen & chillen... After deer season, night hunts lights off, with pistal on me hip slinger the other wild game .... Whin they opened the WMA down the road, it was a Blessing... Prices of leases going up, pay stays the same, wear & tear on body... $40.00 permit ya can't beat the price, unless ya have your own land... Now hog hunten is a busness... flag

I got distracted and missed the deadline mad

Although, I would like to mention that ever since the rules changed, where you can put in on all hunts rather than one per category, the odds have diminished for sure! Last year, I put in on more hunts than ever before. That was also the first year that I didn't get picked for ANYTHING. Coincidence? I think not....

TWPD has to get paid. Last I heard they were struggling so it doesn't burn me to bad.

Just checked online and noticed I missed out on the 2nd draw as well.

Good luck to those that were drawn and post pics!
