Gator Hunting

Guys hunting Gators is a great time! I live in Florida (born & raised) & hunt gators every year in Lake Okeechobee. There is nothing like harpooning a 12+ foot gator at night from an airboat & pulling him in to the bang stick. What a rush!

Id love to take one with my bow,do they allow bow hunting?Maybe my carp shooting rig with the line and spool would make an interesting hunt!

Yes they do allow Bows, Muzzy makes a kit just for Gator hunting, but I like the harpoon, it puts you just a little bit closer! lol

Muzzys gator kit is expensive. We used the Gar killer tips from muzzy and tied off (with 89 lb mono) to some of the line corks from the guides catfish lines. I don't know what you call them but they were corks about the size of a volley ball. I would definately use a retriever reel next time though. In Florida, the gators are much bigger than the ones we went after in La. the gator kit may be nessesary there. This set up worked fine for the 8 ft and 7ft gators I got.
