When/where can I do it? Do I have to use a guide or can I get a permit and DIY?

A friend and I hunted them guided out of Vacherie, LA. Neat town and area and we got our 'gators, but I wouldn't recommend the outfitter. I've seen a few post on here that hunt the Texas side. Maybe they'll chime in.

There are several good gator hunts available on TPWD public hunts list. I think the hunts are in September and I believe the private land seasons are in September and April in Texas depending on location.

for a DIY trip, your best bet is to check the TPWD website like DJS303 mentions. There are lots of gators to be taken, especially along the cost. Our cousins get 8 - 10 tags each year for their place near Tivoli. Not uncommon to get 10 - 12 footers.

I've had alligator meat at fairs, if you harvest one is it easy to get and use all the meat off them?

Just DIY. Put in for some of the Alligator drawn hunts with TPWD next summer. With my son's youth hunts included, I have been on over 20 public gator hunts since the early 1980s. It's not a difficult hunt.

There was a guy on here from LA that was trying to trade a deer hunt for a gator hunt a couple months ago. They were wanting to shoot a couple bucks this year in TX and then next year take you hunting for gators in LA. I don't know if it happened or not but I bet it would be fun. A hard sale IMO because of gator hunt coming last.
