Florida Alligator Hunts
For the adventure seeking big game hunter, there is always the wild experience of hunting trophy-sized Florida alligators during the late summer season.
On a hot, pleasant night, you and your Florida alligator hunting outfitter will navigate the warm lakes and rivers of searching for red gator eyes with a powerful flashlight. Alligators are very active at night and you will carefully look over a number of them to find that one gator you’ve been looking for. You will actually be calling alligators into range as you search.
Once you find a big alligator that you like the looks of, it’s time to slip into bow range. Your arrow has a strong, barbed point designed to stay lodged under the skin. Attached to the tip is a braided line with a large float attached to the other end. Now get ready for a fight! You (with your guides help if needed) will fight the alligator to the side of the boat and harpoon it with a much heavier line. It might take awhile to get the gator controlled, at which point a bang stick is used to finish it off. Florida alligator hunting may sound easy, but this is a large, prehistoric, dangerous predator. Most hunters prefer to use a bow or crossbow in hand at night on the bow of a custom alligator-hunting skiff.
