Crosshairs, I have read up on gator hunting a little bit since I read this original article.
I'm not sure about exact costs, but I did see an ad in a recent hunting mag for gator hunts in Florida. The outfit is called Parker Island Gator Farm (http://www.parkerislandgator.com) Nothing at the web site though. I just saw the ad, so I know nothing about this outfit. Could be bad, could be good....
just so you all know gator meat is excellent, it's good in a cajun sauce over rice or breaded an deep fried served with some good hot sauce, it's probably good a lot of other ways too but thats the only ways i've had it
Gator hunting is a blast!!!
I went in Sept. and it was truely a expirence that I recomend to anyone! The swamps are full of things that I have never seen before and the people were awsome!
You can hunt with a bow and arrow with a retriever reel on it. Many other ways too.
Its fun but not cheap.
This is great for you hunters in the States, after being a Crocodile Hunter for 26 years, I am please that they are controlling numbers over there. I not too fussed on the meat and croc is the same. Harpoon is the only way to go.. I have caught crocs on hooks (10os) and this works well.

What do you do with those empty nylon feed bags or dog & cat food bags? Can you say recycle? I use them for target practice for the youngsters. Take your empty shopping bags, stuff them into an empty nylon feed bag. You can also use old clothing or rags, (but put them in the bottom so it doesnt get top heavy). When your bag is full, fold the top over, punch some holes into the top and zip tie the top shut. Paint, draw, paste, or have the kids decorate their new target. Set it out 10 or 20...
