During our 23 years in business, we have conducted more guided gator hunts than any other guide service in the State of Florida. We have had the pleasure of taking over 1,000 clients on an unforgettable gator hunt. Each year we see more and more repeat clients, due to their previous successful hunting adventure, and our attention to the small details. We are endorsed by more Professional Hunters than any other alligator guide in Florida, and most of them have hunted with us on several occasions. We have been featured on more than 25 shows on “T.N.N. OUTDOORS”, as well as “E.S.P.N.2”, and the OUTDOOR CHANNEL. Additionally, we have been featured in many books and magazine articles, including one written by esteemed hunter Jim Shockey. The article outlined our hunt for a giant, 12-foot long gator. Ultimately, the trophy we captured ended up being ranked #1 with a muzzleloader in S.C.I.’s record book.
For three consecutive years, we were the sole driving force working with the Record Book Committee of Safari Club International. We meet with them annually on our expense in order to provide the information they need about the American Alligator. Our diligence paid off in January 1998, when S.C.I. made the decision to place alligators over nine feet in length into the record books.
We have maintained an outstanding working relationship with S.C.I. for the past seventeen years. In fact, we have donated countless hunts to the National Convention and the local chapters throughout our time with them, and our contributions have exceeded $90,000. With your support, we hope to be able to continue our donations to a wonderful organization.
In 2005, we were honored to be chosen to assist the Florida Game Commission, in a promotional alligator hunt that was designed to target hunters through television programs and magazine articles.
In addition, we have worked closely with the Commission to create alligator programs that educate national and international hunters about the American Alligator. Also, we happily serve as the only business that provides a safety class for Law Enforcement Divers dealing with Alligators, and we have provided training seminars to Officers on the laws and regulations governing Alligator hunting programs.
In 2008 and again in 2010 we worked with the “Foundation for Hope” organization. The foundation provides funding for physically challenged hunters to participate in hunts around the country. We were able to take some young hunters on an exciting hunting adventure. We have participated in charitable organizations such as this since 2001, when we donated a hunt to the “Hunts of a Life Time” program. Each session has been a very rewarding experience for our business, and we are proud of the fact we are the only alligator hunting guides that these reputable organizations entrust their young hunters to.
Please help them to continue their great work any way you can. Ask your local hunting club chapter to send a small donation each year to their annual fundraisers. If you know of any young hunters that may be eligible to take part in one of the foundations variety of hunts, please call them today 517-372-8300.
