Just not enough room! I'll keep it brief and to the point, we hunt most of our gators on private property, which has its advantages, bigger gators, no other hunters, and no game wardens to hassle you, we usually scout through the summer keeping up with the movement of the larger bulls, this particular gator was taken coming into a bait with no hook, the bait was used as a decoy and worked great, he swam within ten feet of my ground blind! Retrieval can be tricky, if you make a bad shot and miss the brain one of several bad things can happen, the gator recovers and heads for china or just goes to the bottom and comes up next year! Either way you have your work cut out for you in the water, if you make a good brain shot the gator dies right there, and retrieval is relatively easy with hooks if he sinks, and the big boys always sink.
Alligator hunting done right is one of the most unique adventures left in our country, give it a try. rifle

I would love to do a gator hunt someday, it is pretty high on my list. Sounds like a blast!

Iíve caught a few but we caught them alive so we could take them a few hours away to keep them fresh.

Cool photo

The jawl meat is far the best on the gator, flash fried, dipped in honey mustard sauce, outstanding.

What counties? I am interested to see how far North along the trinity people have hunted alligators. They are normally in the news all the way up to DFW along the Trinity, wonder if you could hunt them from private along the Trinity not too far South of DFW?
