“SPORT HUNTS”

These hunts are done on private property all year. The gators are approximately 7 – 7 1/2 in length. These are either day hunts with rifles, or night hunts from airboats with bows or harpoons. These are one day hunts, but can require a second day due to weather. If the hunt requires a second night due to weather there is no additional charge. I have the tags for these hunts; this is not a draw type hunt. The fee for a sport hunt is $1,850.

 

“TROPHY HUNTS”

Trophy hunts are done all year. These are three days or two nights. Alligators can be taken with rifles (day hunts) bows or harpoons (night hunts). We supply all needed equipment. Some hunts are done from the
shoreline and some are done out of airboats. (All night hunts are done from airboats). There is no drawing for these tags. I have tags in hand. We do extensive scouting prior to each hunt from airboats, trucks, four wheelers and even swamp buggies. If for any reason we are unable to bag the first gator, we always have others scouted out. When scouting we look for the largest gator possible, not the minimum nine footers. These hunts are done on private lakes and canals. Make no mistake, these are not gators that have been trapped or farmed and released just before the hunt. These are 100 percent free ranging, tail slapping, and mouth snapping, boat biting, wild gators with an all around bad attitude. (They have a worse attitude than your mother-in-law did the night she showed up at your bachelor party).

The fee for a Trophy hunt is $4,500.

Trophy fees:

  • $500 for 9-10 feet
  • $1,000 up to 11 feet
  • $1,500 up to12 feet
  • $2,000 up to 13 feet
  • $2,500 over 13 feet

Additional sport size gators may be taken on any private land hunt.Only by the same hunter and method at the same time for $450 each.

“PUBLIC HUNTS”

August 15, through October 31. Several thousand permits will be issued. First come, first serve, or a lottery. These tags normally sell out in 3 or 4 hours. Nonresident trapper’s fees are $1,000. Your agent’s fee is included in your package price. These are by far the best package deals. These hunts can only be done at night from airboats, with harpoons, bows or crossbows. This is by far the most exciting and challenging method of harvesting alligators. These are all night hunts, for one night. It may require a second night if we have bad weather. In 2009 the last gator of the season we took was over 10 feet long. On one of the State’s premium Trophy lakes, we averaged well over 11 feet. Our hunters also took several shots at different gators over twelve feet long. In 2010, on the last night of the season, a local hunter harvested a monstrous NEW STATE RECORD AT 14 FEET AND 3 AND A HALF INCHES GIANT on these lakes.

One hunter, one average size gator $1,850
One hunter, two average size gators $2,500
One hunter, two gators, one Trophy $3,500+
Two hunters split any hunt add $1,000

If you have your own tags please call for prices. The only additional expenses are for the processing of your alligator. These fees are for processing your hide and meat, $25.00 per foot, plus $100.00 if it is trophy skinned for a taxidermist. If you would like the meat I will ship it to you or trade out an equal amount with what I have on hand.
