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.

There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
