I just got done putting in my app for the county wide alligator trapper lics. This will be my first time on a "real" alligator hunt.
I'm looking for anyone thats experianced doing this down here in FL. I'm not looking for spots or anything like that because my area is LOADED with gators big and small like most of the state. What I am looking for is how to go about it... What equipment would you suggest? what to do with the gator after I kill it... I've heard that there are processors here that will buy the meat and hide from you?
I have a bang stick and snare and a bowfishing setup but was wandering what would be the best route to take. I've been thinkin more along the lines of snatch hooks and snares... But most people I see doing it use a bow or crossbow...
Thanks for any help or info or links to good articles. I've read pretty much everything on the FWC website concerning rules and regs. I'm pretty excited about this and hope I get my permit.
