Welcome! You'll have to share some tips on gator hunting. I'm guessing most of us haven't tried it, but would be interested in learning more about it.

Yea we have some good stories to last thru out the year with some of those boys. The worst one wasnt even my largest, he was 10'6" and the meanest gator I ever got. We had just refinished the airboat, steelflex and zyrex, nice and new looking. I harpooned him and he ran up into shallow water and decided to do the death roll in all that hydrilla and vegetation. Couldnt tell his head from his tail.Start pulling the stuff off him with a gaf, no help, only thing to do is reach in there and hope for the best.He jerked around and went straight for the boat mouth wide open.Chomp,chomp 2 feet down.Boyfriend yelled damn I just painted it!Needless to say I yelled back, forget the paint get the bangstick.Took 2 44.mag shots for him. Still dont think that sucker is dead, even today.Now my big boy, he almost broke my arm and its still not healed, got him all the way in the boat,he jerked his head, caught my arm between his head and the cage.Last year,one literally jumped straight up out of the water and bit thru our friends boot. Shot of anti-biotics, he was good to go.We laugh about it now!

How much do gators usually weigh when they get 10-12 feet long?
