South Florida alligator hunting with a rifle. It was around 7am when we arrived at the South Florida alligator hunting area and it was a dryer Florida day so we we're hunting by spot & stalk on land. My alligator guide knew what he was doing, because it was only around an hour of hunting and we saw five gators Basking in the Florida sun, but we was looking for a 10 foot plus gator. Four or five more alligators seen in another 30 minutes, and I heard my guide say there he is, like he has seen this alligator in his Florida back yard or something. I looked with my binoculars and saw the giant gator lying in the Florida sand on a bank. Give me the shooting sticks I said, knowing that this gator was at least 10 feet. I shot him in the head at about 80 yards, and the giant gator slid into the Florida canal like a snake. I had never been fishing in Florida yet, but out came the alligator fishing poles. After four casts we hooked onto him, and my gator guide handed me the pole. It was like have a giant Florida shark on I guess. I never would of thought I would be hunting alligators with a fishing pole. After about 45 minutes or so I had him at the bank. Give me the pole my gator guide says. Then he handed me a different gator pole. What do I do with this? It's a bang stick; just hit the gator in the head when he gets close enough. As my guide pulled, and pulled on the pole, up came a giant alligator directly in front of my feet. 10-foot gator, ya right, he was at least 12 foot. Bang I hit him in the head and a small splash and I had a 12-foot alligator that we were trying to drag up the Florida bank. All I can say is a 12-foot gator is a beast, and your going to need help getting the gator anywhere.What a hunt, I highly recommend this outfit!

ALLIGATOR HUNTING METHODS !"Alligator Night Time hunting"Hunting at night can be done but is a lot harder to see and judge the size of alligators being shot or caught by pole. We would be using spot lights and crossbow or bang stick with fishing pole at night. (No firearms allowed by law at night). We will spot the size alligator you are looking for, snag it with 200 pound breaded alligator line and fight the gator in. Hang on for dear life because fighting an alligator on a fishing pole is like catching a great white. (Other methods may be used at request)."Alligator day time hunting"Daylight alligator hunting is the best of all do to the fact you can see and judge the size of all alligators with ease. Day light hunts are highly recommended. We start the hunt stalking alligators and judging the size of each one till we fine the size our client is looking for and then snag the alligator with fishing pole with large treble hook and shot with a rifle or pistol. (Sounds Easy, but will take time) You are shooting at a four inch target, so a steady hand and sometime more then one shot is needed to kill these very tough hided dinosaurs. (Other methods andweapons used at client request)
PRIVATE LAND HUNTINGWe hunt only private land to ensure there are lots of gators, and be able to hunt all year long. Public land hunts will have lots of competition for the same gators an outfitter would be looking for witha limited season. and most gators are small do to the fact that the big ones are shot out. On private land hunts you may use rifle and hand guns to kill your gator, and hunt day or night. Where public landhunts no rifle or firearm at all may be used, and your time window by law is only at night most times.On our private land hunts you will AVOID tangled lines with others, limited time, only small gators, not being able to have a firearm, limited season, and no speeding boats blasting by on the hunt.WILL YOU GET AN ALLIGATOR?Simply said YES!
