My dad, my son and I killed a few gators in Florida a year and a half ago and although it was fun and exciting it was nothing like the hunts I am used to and was a little disappointed. I admit we didn't do a normal night hunt but spotted along canals on private land till we would find one and then put a bullet in it. They are just not the elusive animal that I'm used to as once you would spot the eyes above water you pretty much had em.
I'll scan some pictures and get them up soon as mine was over 10 foot long and pretty nice. The skulls make a very cool european mount also.
I will admit, I love deer plots.
I love planting... even the garden at home.
What I do not like are high cost farm implements.
I found myself in need of a cultipacker for clover and other small seed - but could not find a decent deal on a small unit.
OK, fine... I will make one!
The materials were very simple... some plastic corrugated sewer drain pipe, some metal, 2 bearings and some concrete and you are in business!
I cut the pipe, in this case, to 46" wide - as I intended to pull this one...
