They take their share one way or the other LOL

Hunter shoots duck, but giant gator claims prize
Quote
A Florida hunter has captured footage of a giant alligator devouring a duck he or his partner had just shot. “It’s not just fishing, Florida duck hunting has a tax man, too!” Cass Couey wrote on Facebook.

In S. Louisiana, in the marsh, it is not uncommon for a large gar to eat a duck that is floating on the water.

I would make sure my buddy would be the one wading out to pick up decoys!

A few years ago we had a confirmed mountain lion on our lease for a little while. My brother and I were hunting about a mile apart in the evening, light to zero winds. Right at dusk we both heard it - and we both swore it had to be less than 100 yards away from our stands LOL. It was LOUD.

I imagine the pucker factor picking up dekes would be about the same as that night walking back to my ATV.

Dang, that's a lot of boot hide swimming out there. I'd need a bigger boat before I picked up the decoys.

Wow! Haha that’s pretty awesome though. Funny how he says “alright you’re fed now get outta here!” Hahaha! But yeah, not interested in hunting in that! Lol. Be worried about my dog too!

I walked out into my back yard one night this fall and heard one that couldn't have been more than 50 yards away.

Are you supposed to count it against your bag limit?

Yes, and you need to make a reasonable effort to retrieve those birds. Put that ol boy in a headlock, reach in and get those birds back.

Yep. My first duck hunt in Louisiana I lost 2 teal to a gator. Was no where near as big as the one in the video, but big enough to steel my 2 teal.

You guys have any idea how many gators are in our area lakes, especially a little east of Dallas ? I was crappie fishing last spring and saw 2 and heard 4 others just in a 75 acre cove.

There is a defense to prosecution here. I would contend the duck, although motionless was still alive. Therefore when the gator ate it, it actually killed the bird, so it would be a strike againt the gator, not the hunter. Reasonable doubt!
